One of the surest tests [of the superiority or inferiority of a poet] is the way in which a poet borrows. Immature poets imitate; mature poets steal; bad poets deface what they take, and good poets make it into something better, or at least something different. The good poet welds his theft into a whole of feeling which is unique, utterly different than that from which it is torn; the bad poet throws it into something which has no cohesion. A good poet will usually borrow from authors remote in time, or alien in language, or diverse in interest.” ~TS Eliot
Where many see the Bible as the pathway to Heaven, others say it should be covered in a brown paper bag because it is so, so filthy.
There are hundreds of sex acts implied in the first book of the bible. How has nobody ever described how each of them would have played out in biblical language? If the writers and translators of the Bible had been a little less prudish we might have an entirely different relationship between sex and religion than we have now.
In Genesis there is sex before marriage, threesomes, incest, group sex, kinky fetish cuckolding, gay sex and more. Isn’t it time that you read the Bible for the dirty parts?
Using the seminal King James Bible in its Elizabethan English as spring board,Genesis Deflowered – the first book in The Deflowered Series – makes the beginning of the Bible come out as a sexy, readable and fun erotic novel.
Genesis Deflowered: equal parts holy scripture and blaspheming scandal.
Religion and Love get along great.
Religion and Sex…not so much.
The Deflowered Series looks to recontextualize the relationship between sex and spirit by meeting the classic text on its own terms and make sex part of being human and being spiritual.
“Its a whole new take on a 400-year-old book” ~Fox News
“This isn’t your common drug-store bodice-ripper. Genesis Deflowered succeeds on a number of levels — it truly does respect the classic text in form and structure, and Mr. Stillman’s additions don’t feel out of place and make us think about sex and religion in a new way.” ~Huffington Post
