Revenge of the Orgasm: (An Erotic Autobiography) (The Lust Series) by Greatest Poet Alive

5 Stars

I am reminded by a lyric from the underrated rapper K Dee “It’s hard to represent without confidence” when reading this book. Much has been said about the popularity of erotic writing. Is it the fact it is taboo or the enjoyment of expression of intimacy? The author’s pen name and foreword display much bravado. Realising this is based on true events, can only make one imagine a modern day Don Juan character that is part of the intrigue of this collection.

An explosive beginning of poems displaying sexual scenarios moves at a relenting pace and then slowly eases into a more leveled pacing. Making one think this has been expertly selected for dramatic effect. I particularly admired the uses of alliteration that has an approach to quicken your reading. Another technique of adding time stamps adds to the autobiographical feel and place the reader in the scene.

The sense of voyeurism draws you into the work and the poem ‘Westin Incident’ further emphasizes the point. A poem where two separate couples are jointly making love and one of the partners views the stranger through the window. An interesting concept that highlights your curiosity.

A refreshing honesty flows throughout the collection with little judgment or reflection. If your excitement to read on is captured from the beginning then this is a collection for you. A poet with great self-confidence and an unashamed narrative.
