“Behind every erotic condemnation there's a burning hypocrite.”
Susie Bright

“…The shocking thing about any stripper gathering, I discovered, was that you have never heard women talk so fast and so explicitly about money in all your life. They make the guys on the trading floor on Wall Street look like a bunch of pansies.”
Susie Bright, Big Sex Little Death: A Memoir

“What's so wonderful about experiments is that often they don't work. They do blow up in the oven; the Bride of Frankenstein does crawl out and strangle you with a black leotard while you shout your last prayers. It's only once you've tasted your own shocking failures, harebrained ideas, and sudden departures that you will realize something quite wonderful.”
Susie Bright, How to Write a Dirty Story: Reading, Writing, and Publishing Erotica
