ANNOUNCING! A new Twitter CONTEST!! With Prizes!!! Here’s the task: Tweet, without using explicit language or biological terminology, the best, steamiest, most erotic scene that you can write. James Joyce’s Ulysses (see this site under Podcasts) ends famously – or notoriously, as you prefer – with a 3-page, non-stop, almost unparagraphed soliloquy from Molly, the wife of Leopold Bloom. It’s lively, it’s life in the raw, it’s libidinous.
This contest aims at the opposite extreme. In fewer than 140 characters – and allow for the hashtag – see if you can write a sex scene that will make our palms sweat, our eyes roll. You’re not allowed to use sexual language or terminology; you are not permitted any biology. I’m going straight in (so to speak) with an example. Molly, as you probably know, ends her long, long thought with the orgasmic “And yes I said, I will Yes.” Accordingly, just to guide you here’s my offering for this contest: “Yes, I said, yes, I will, yes. Yes. Definitely. Oh, God, mmmm, yes absolutely. Yes! Yes-yes. Oh, yes. Yes, yes, yes, yes, YES!”
That’s 132 characters; I’ve left room for the hashtag which is #YesMolly. The contest runs from today, Friday, to Monday noon and the first three winners will receive in the mail from me copies of the Gabler edition of Ulysses with a note from me. Go to it!
