Orgasmatron

With Charlotte, it never felt like cheating because it never felt like love. It always felt like what it was supposed to be in the first place; an overpowering, unadulterated hunger for flesh with a genuine sadistic regard towards dignity that would spiral itself into an uncontrollable feeding frenzy of self-respect and warm body fluids; […]Read more of this blog post »

“When the irrational actions of a pure heart
begin to fuel mediocrity and no longer eclipse
the celebratory rationale of an impure mind,
then it is time, alas, to go home.”
