Tinder is the Night

One of the problems for writers, contrary to popular misconception, is how easy it is to get published. The internet has leveled the playing field, giving so many candidates their 15 minutes of fame that it’s hard to distinguish oneself from the tsunami of petitioners all vying for attention. One way out of this is to piggyback on an influencer or some service that allows one to separate from the pact. Pornhub is a repertory company which has created instant stars. In 2019 the company produced 136 million hours of content which received 42 billion hits. You have only to drop your pants and perform oral sex and you’ll achieve instant notoriety. Remember
 Fifty Shades of Grey, the self-published book that became a publishing phenomenon? You might ask why people will go to the lengths they do performing all manner of humiliating acts including coprophilia and bestiality in front of millions of viewers. Why? Because of the fear they will be forgotten. What would you rather do? Perform Midsummer Night’s Dream in summer stock or have your dream cum true in a triple penetration scene that goes viral? Once you’ve become "visible" you can go back to writing Long Day’s Journey Into Night, Journey to the End of the Night, Last Exit to Brooklyn or No Exit At All.

read "What Turns You On?" by Francis Levy, HuffPost

and listen to "Sexual Healing" by Marvin Gaye
