Episode 39 - Kajira of Gor by John Norman, with SPECIAL GUEST!

We have a very special treat for you this episode! Miss Honey Analverkehr of My Mum is a Pornstar joined us all the way from Australia to talk about a book that had a big impact on her as a young person, John Norman's Kajira of Gor. Note: unfortunately, we had some audio issues with this one (we keep trying different things for these pandemic episodes but they keep on having different problems!) but we felt the content was so great we had to release it even though every time we talk over each other it sounds like we're bobbing for apples. It's fine, they were great apples! Miss Honey is fantastic and much more charismatic than we are, so you're not going to want to miss this one.
 Tiffany is the world's stupidest perfume counter girl who gets groomed and then abducted to Gor, where men are men and women dribble the oils of submission! She spends the majority of the book thinking about how much she wants to get enslaved instead of thinking about how she is OBVIOUS…

Episode 22: Shadow of the Lynx



Shadow of the Lynx by Victoria Holt

I read this when I was a kid and it gave me VERY WEIRD KID IDEAS.  Now I'm returning to it and it is... even more fucked up than I expected?  Nora is one of those freshly orphaned smart Vicky Holt girls.  Charles Herrick, aka the Lynx, is a... brilliant sex monster?  It's hard to explain.  There's another dude too.  And a whole other family.  Is this even a romance novel?  Is this maybe a thriller?  I DON'T KNOW ANYMORE.

And, look, we can explain!  Our Four for Forty ended up being interminable and we recorded this months ago and at the end we even promo Four for Forty.... we're still, er, learning?

This is going to be okay for most people but there's definitely an extremely controlling man, there's an attempted rape that ends up with the woman safe but the man's brains splashed all over the outback, there's a good bit of murdering but mostly, you know, the genteel kind. No sex at all, overtly.

Can we appreciate this cover for a minute, though?  I love a good "women running away from houses" Gothic cover, but this one is really a fine example.
