Heliocentric Archives On Medium

In October 2018 I wrote one sketch (250 words) each day on the theme "Heliocentric", short fictions circling like planets around The Sun. In the last month I put them on Medium, with related artwork — Heliocentric Redux.

Man's Best Friend (On A String)

Man’s Best Friend (On A String)

Unconditional Love, Neutered

I live in Manhattan and every morning I see them out there — the proud sleepy-eyed owners whose first cup of coffee hasn’t quite hit yet—tugging around by the neck their prize, their pet, their mammal-on-a-string.

From Binky to Rex, with cuteness, size, fur, and aggressiveness to suit every gender, personal style, and financial status—they’re out there to do three things, if you include getting a bit of fresh air.

The Devil In Deskeyes

Devil in Deskeyes is a short story from a collection of stories and fragments put together and self-published in 1975 under the title of ” ˈfa-byə-ləs kəm-ˈpəl-shənz ” i.e.“Fabulous Compulsions”.
This is a 44 year old story  — written when I was 23 years old.
It is humorous erotica and thus it is

Screen Attention Disorder

Turn off that that computer
and put away that smartphone 
unless you're going to read
 > THIS <.

The following is not a dissertation. More so it is a rant in the tradition of I’m Mad As Hell And I’m Not Going To Take This Anymore, from the movie “Network”.
But since I am writing this, not making a video for YouTube, the anger will be a bit more diffused, and any Answers, in-depth plans for corrective action, will be left wandering around the hallways.

“That’s right folks, Don’t touch that dial.”

Leave the kids alone!

Hey! People! Leave the kids alone!

Foreskin: It’s Vital and It’s Fun!

Thoughts on circumcision.

Read the entire essay HERE.

an excerpt . . . 

The Matching Penis Theory
This theory states that we have to do this flesh-cutting to the kid because we did it to his dad. 
The scenarios for the imagined situations that might occur if he’s not cut would be too insulting and idiotic even for TV sitcom mentality. 
The big lie here is that it’s all about protecting the kid’s future when he might see that his father’s penis is different. Because explaining things to kids is, of course, not something we could do.
But what’s really at issue here is the father’s discomfort in having to deal on a sometimes-daily basis with the fact that he had part of his own penis cut off before he had any say in the matter and for extremely questionable reasons. Dad doesn’t want to be confronted with that every time he changes his son’s diapers. Not really ever thinking about the procedure is one reason it just goes on and on.

Slav Of Love


Sex In The Village

I am currently 67 years old. 
Half a lifetime ago, in 1984, when I was 33, I wrote this short story. It was published by Screw Magazine.
Luckily I’m not running for public office — so, rather than worrying that the media might accidentally discovering this salacious folktale, I can just go ahead and let it spill forward. 
File it under erotic humor, I guess.

If you read this and it makes your funny bone throb, please do clap like a randy bonobo when you've reached the callipigian bottom of the story.
