Madam Happenstance’s Guide to Eroto-magical Cookery

“Molly was a foodie.   She was overweight and didn’t care.  Diets were for the insecure skinny chicks who wanted to become even skinnier so that guys would want to fuck them.  Molly liked sex—and she had tried it in college, with both men and women—but she knew there were greater pleasures in life.  She preferred a succulent piece of foie gras to a succulent cock.  She appreciated the fatty creaminess of a nice pair of breasts, but preferred the fatty creaminess of fatty cream.  A tongue in her mouth was all well and good, but it was better if properly boiled and braised.  Porn turned her on, but not as much as the elBulli cookbook…”

I Modi No 4: “The Satyr & the Nymph”

Note: This is the fourth in a series of short stories inspired by Agostino Carracci’s edition of I Modi.

“We nymphs were never virgins. We are the daughters of nature herself, immortal and brimming with the profligate sexuality of the wild.

I Modi No 1: “Venus Genetrix”

Note: This is the first in a series of short stories inspired by Agostino Carracci’s edition of I Modi.

“Gaze upon me, mortal, for I am desire made flesh, lover of all lovers, goddess of pleasure, mother of Eros. I cast off my peplos and ride naked across the sky in my chariot pulled by doves. I wear only my kestos himas, this girdle of leather and gold, beneath my breasts. It is an enchanted garment, steeped in spells of love and lust…”
