I like to think of my humble online publication as the Playboy Magazine of erotic flash fiction. The comparison is not that far fetch. Stay with me now.
Hello hello hello, all you readers and writers of erotic flash fiction! The Old Soldier got in late last night from karaoke at Nico’s in Little Italy in Pittsburgh. Once again the place became crowded. I had to stand up from my chair later in the night because people were blocking my view. This is not unusual. I got to perform two songs, not looking at the monitor but directing all my energy on the audience, putting into practice my theory of karaoke as performance art. The songs were Please Don’t Let Me Be Misunderstood by The Animals and Light My Fire by The Doors.
I never eat at karaoke, because I don’t want the food to lay on my diaphragm; but boy did that bar food smell and look good. Karaoke takes place in the dinning room and all night long the two bartenders were serving plates of wings, gyros and burghers and fries to people in the dinning room. It made the Old Soldier hungry. As soon as I got home I fixed myself some pork ‘n’ beans with sardines, a slice of Italian bread and washed it all down with a can of beer.
Nico’s has a goldmine on Saturday nights.
I was greatly inspired by Playboy Magazine when I put together the Pittsburgh Flash Fiction Gazette. Even though I haven’t bought a Playboy Magazine in years, I grew up with the magazine. And even though my humble publication is a one-man operation, I still try to emulate Playboy Magazine’s mix of first-class fiction, interviews, lifestyle (the struggling writer) and serious journalism. Of course, my journalism is on a hyper-local level.
Oh, I forgot the focus on sex and female nudity.
So, if you want to blame someone for the editorial content of this magazine, don’t blame me. Blame Hue Hefner.
It’s not even noon yet and already it’s a gorgeous day in Pittsburgh, a clear sky with the high around 60. After I post this I think I’ll stroll to Armand’s in Little Italy for some beer, then come back and do some promotion on Facebook and Twitter and then use my new subscription to watch a porn video on ExploitedCollegeGirls; maybe I’ll get an idea for a new gangbang story even though ECG doesn’t do gangbangs. Still, the site stands apart because the objective of the site seems to be to give these young women as many orgasms as possible. The site uses a lot of sex toys on the women. The women are fingered and eaten before the real sex begins. The young women usually have several orgasms. Why do these young women do it (porn)? As one young woman said when asked why she was doing a porn video, “I’m going to fuck anyway. I may as well get paid.”
It’s a brave new world my friends. These young women are not our grandmothers. Although, most of them will be grandmothers themselves. Grandma is going to have a big secret.
This is the Old Soldier reporting for the Pittsburgh Flash Fiction Gazette, a blog of erotic flash fiction, gangbang stories, culture, creative writing and sex.
