We chat with Danielle Hettara, editor in chief of Jacques Magazine, America's only luxury erotic magazine. How does one end up running an erotic magazine? By being 6'1" and laying down wisdom on how nature makes vaginas and men make penises. We also discuss how we are all really into black chicks, but are definitely not into crush porn. Overall, we can't judge the intention behind art or control what you do with it. Does violence in porn cause an increase in real life violence? What about if we take your porn away? Must a vulva be mocked or politicized in order to be filmed?
Thomm Quackenbush is an author and teacher in the Hudson Valley. Double Dragon publishes four novels in his Night's Dream series (We Shadows, Danse Macabre, and Artificial Gods, and Flies to Wanton Boys). He has sold jewelry in Victorian England, confused children as a mad scientist, filed away more books than anyone has ever read, and tried to inspire the learning disabled and gifted. He is capable of crossing one eye, raising one eyebrow, and once accidentally groped a ghost. When not writing, he can be found biking, hiking the Adirondacks, grazing on snacks at art openings, and keeping a straight face when listening to people tell him they are in touch with 164 species of interstellar beings.
