A Dirty Story as You Like It

We’re pleased to present the 14th title in our Pocket Erotica series — a must-have edition for fans of Oulipo and innovative literature.

Oulipo’s interactive concept of “tree literature” was first implemented by Raymond Queneau in his short story “Un conte à votre façon” (A Story as You Like It). In this wickedly clever (and very funny) variation, Kim Vodicka follows in Queneau’s hallowed footsteps with a do-it-yourself text that’s guaranteed to satisfy all-comers.

In A Dirty Story as You Like It, the reader chooses from multiple plots, navigates the course to a satisfying climax, or changes direction whenever the urge strikes. Do all roads lead to ecstasy? Who knows, who cares, because getting there is half the fun.

For the past decade, she has toured the nation performing spoken word with rock’n’roll accompaniment in venues both illustrious and disreputable, including the legendary Sun Studio. Originally from South Louisiana, she lives in Memphis, Tennessee with her beloved cat, Lula. 


LOOK OUT MAMA, IT’S DEBAUCH-O-RAMA!

“A harsh, hilarious, scurrilous, and scatological satire.”
—Ed Simon, JSTOR Daily

Poet John Wilmot, 2nd Earl of Rochester, was considered one of the greatest English satirists — a nimble wit and scribbler of sublime wordplay, parodies & pornographic puns.

Hailed by Graham Greene and Ezra Pound, Wilmot is perhaps best known for his outrageous libertine satires, including this wickedly funny Restoration drama.

Originally titled The Farce of Sodom, or the Quintessence of Debauchery, DEBAUCH-O-RAMA is an absurdist “closet drama” – written to be read aloud and not performed.  It consists of five acts in raunchy rhyming couplets and a madcap cast of characters:

CAST

  • Bolloxinion – King of Sodom
  • Cuntigratia – his Queen
  • Pricket – young Prince
  • Swivia – Princess
  • Buggeranthos – General of the Army
  • Pockenello – Prince and favourite of the King
  • Borastus – Buggermaster-General
  • Pene & Tooly – Pimps of Honour
  • Officina – Maid of Honour
  • Fuckadilla – Maid of Honour
  • Cunticulla – Maid of Honour
  • Clytoris – Maid of Honour
  • Flux – Physician to the King
  • Vertuso – Dildo- and Merkin-Maker for the Court

Let the curtain rise and the laughter begin!

ADVANCE PRAISE FOR THIS NEW URGE EDITION

“This witty and seductive translation will make libertines of us all. Connoisseurs of high-literary pornography will cherish Thérèse Finds Happiness.”
Catherine D’Avis, author of Angel of Everything

“…arouses the erogenous zones as well as one’s funny bone. Bravo Thérèse!”
Amandine Lévêque

“Potent and playful, Thérèse Finds Happiness offers up sexual ecstasy, libertine philosophy, and amusing satirical scenes. The translation adds a contemporary edge to the text, and the tale’s ‘happy ending’ is a tour de force.”
Lawrence Hamilton

Hidden Gems

HG float1

The infamous Victorian monthly magazine The Pearl was published in London from July 1879 to December 1880 and was subsequently shut down by the authorities for publishing obscene literature. Each issue was devoted to explicit erotic stories, sex in high society, incest and flagellation, interspersed with ribald parodies, poems and naughty limericks. This selection of the best of The Pearl—over 330 pages!— is drawn from all of its original 18 issues and provides a fascinating look at the secret obsessions  behind  the Puritan’s mask. Step inside and enjoy a raunchy romp through the Victorian underground.

Love at First Smite

Love knows no virtue, no profit; it loves and forgives and suffers everything, because it must

Originally published in 1870, the notorious novel Venus in Furs quickly became a landmark work of erotic literature. Written by the Austrian author Leopold von Sacher-Masoch (who inspired Krafft-Ebing to coin the term masochism), the book’s themes of female dominance and sadomasochism are legendary. This compact new edition features stunning collage illustrations by French artist Nelly Sanchez.

In 2013, Cody began posting  stories on her blog and quickly developed a dedicated following.

A small sampling of comments from readers:

“… flawless…I can’t seem to find any reasonable words with which to describe it. The way you use language is just… gah. Keep doing what you do, please.” – anonymous (on The Luculla Hive)

“Pleasantly surprised, the talent of the author blew me away. She had the ability to capture me and hold me. Very refreshing, I’m totally addicted.” – Reese Michelle

“…this is excellent, this is brilliant. It is very erotic, it is very funny. it is a brilliant use of  written form–it may very well be perfect.  I’ve ran across a couple of  stories vaguely in this vain (both a long time ago) but not at all so clearly conceived or proficiently and cleanly executed.   Has anyone ever done this before ?  It seems like it would have had to have been, but I really have never heard of  this really like this.  I feel like a ‘Classic.’ story is one which after you first read it you can’t quite imagine the world without this story having been written–That’s how I feel about this one.  The idea of the seduction of the imagination has never been so perfectly expressed and the humor and eroticism are so organic to the story.  Is there anything as seductive as the written word when written so well.” – Leslie Petra

“I think of your stories as blossoming flowers…” – anonymous (unfortunately!)

“You, you are amazing, this story is exalting, an wonderful! All of your writing fills me with happiness, I don’t even remember how I found it, but I am so glad that I did.” – Olla Prayer

“Blown away. Really good. Innovative, yet fun and highly charged” – anonymous

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:

Cody Kmoch is a curious product of Czech and Canadian blood, British grammar school bullying, chronic sexual frustration, and the internet. She has been drawing and writing about female beauty and ecstasy since she was a teenager, but almost all of it has been wasted: years of work quietly shredded, binned, or deleted. But in April 2013 something changed, and since then her fantasies have been spilling out on her blog to a small but dedicated following. When she’s not writing, she’s working in an office, playing her guitar, running, or napping.
