What do philosophers have to do with pornographers? In real life, probably not much; but within the pages of this girlie magazine, pornographers are philosophers. At least in my mind.
Welcome to my girlie magazine. I’m the Old Soldier (a Vietnam War veteran), your friendly editor/publisher. I do consider myself something of a philosopher, a philosopher of the flash fiction short story. And the search engines consider this magazine a porn site (the site is banned on the computer networks in the public library). So I guess that makes me a pornographer.
Some people confuse nudity with pornography. A photo of a naked woman is not pornography. A photo of a naked woman masturbating is pornography.
See what I mean?
You will find lots of women joyously masturbating (and having other kinds of sex, too) in the pages of this girlie magazine. That’s because explicit erotic flash fiction is part of my philosophy of sex as art and entertainment.
So in the world of this particular girlie magazine, philosophers and pornographers have a great deal in common.
Baseball And Creative Writing
I wrote this post in my notebook as I reclined back on the sofa with two pillows under my weary head. I had my favorite sports show on the radio. The show was broadcasting a Pirates baseball game. The Pirates were playing the Cubs.
I’m a casual baseball fan. There are other things in life that command my attention (like this magazine). But baseball and warm weather in Pittsburgh just seem to go together. For me, listening to baseball on the radio while doing something else, like writing this post, is very relaxing. You can’t watch baseball on television and expect to get much writing done. But I find baseball on the radio very conductive for getting a respectable amount of writing done.
Keep reading and keep writing that erotic flash fiction. Remember that a different post is featured on the front page every day. So visit often.
This is the Old Soldier reporting for the PittsburghFlashFiction, a new kind of girlie magazine.
