Sexual roleplay at its core is a form of erotic escapism, allowing participants that may have some inhibitions or hang-ups in their sex life (possibly stemming from prior bad experiences, sexual or verbal abuse, religious guilt or cultural influences, etc.) to step into the role of someone unfazed by such things for a while. For some, roleplaying is just another awesome tool in the sex drawer, for others, roleplaying can become the dominant or only way they orgasm because this temporary disassociation with the abused, shamed or mistreated self can be incredibly empowering.
Total Mindfu*k emphasizes improvisation and imagination over elaborate costumes and predetermined scenes, allowing you more leeway to adapt in the moment, share a laugh and blow each other’s minds (and bodies). Meticulously crafted to transform supposedly taboo, experimental or shame-inducing sexual exploits into accessible and utterly orgasmic adventures for the rest of us, Heat & Stir’s Fast and Filthy Guidebooks get it done in about a hundred pages (Fast), including intense sexual encounters and pottymouth (Filthy) as promised.
Frank R. Larkin is an ardent advocate for shame-free, consensual sex. A survivor of sex abuse perpetrated by a predator-pediatrician in Omaha, Frank believes that the coached sexual shame we're subjected to as children not only protects abusers and the institutions who foster them, but plays far too significant a role in the lives of millions of sexually dissatisfied men and women.
Through his frank, sexual writing, F.R. Larkin hopes to lessen the stigma around sex between consenting adults, lifting the burden of lifetime shame from those victimized by sexual abuse and turning this generations-old weapon on those egregious predators that have benefitted from it for far too long. Frank’s musings on sex, dogs and life with chronic pain can be found on HeatandStir.com.
