Auntie SHAME: A Review Sex Pioneer David Pevsner's New Memoir Comments (0)

Today, January 11, is pub day for David Pevsner's Damn Shame: A Memoir of Desire, Defiance, and Show Tunes. If you're not sure what to expect, let me point out that Pevsner lamented to me that he wasn't allowed to use any images that showed his erect penis (plenty are shown at rest!) or his hole. While that could seem a bummer, just the fact that this conversation was had should prick up your ears — expect a revealing autobio, and also a revealing one.

Opening with a remembrance of chatting with a young gay guy who said he couldn't imagine being 40 (Pevsner, now past 60, was past 50) because then he'd have to start letting men pee on him, Pevsner swiftly tackles his career as a songwriter and performer, a career rife with sexual themes, and one that eventually led him into releasing pornographic imagery of himself.

I Have No Words: The Extremely Graphic Novels Of Dale Lazarov Comments (0)

Dalelazarov

Comics have come a long way since Jughead. In fact, they're now routinely going all the way, as—you should pardon the expression—illustrated by the cheerfully gay-erotic work created and/or published by Dale Lazarov.

Lazarov's output is the subject of a review by Cathy Camper for Lambda Literary, in which she reacts to discovering the fact that Lazarov's graphic novels are more graphic than novel, in that they have no written story, only visuals:

A wordless graphic novel is similar to a silent film, in that the story is told through the characters actions, expressions and small nuances in the comics’ settings, layout and pace. In these productions, Lazarov lists himself as writer, but also sometimes art director, and both his eye for detail and his artists’ talents are what make the sexy proceedings in these comics work.

Sometimes, a dirty picture is worth a thousand words.

For his Sticky Graphic Novels imprint, Lazarov is a writer and art director, and also acts as publisher for books by others, all of which he describes as “wordless, gay character-based, sex-positive graphic novels.”
