How to Deal Blog Tour Post

     The O'Raven Chronicles is pleased to present this tour stop post for T. M. Smith's  How to Deal Blog Tour




How to Deal 
An All Cocks Story 
Book 3




Jon Brennan comes from a long line of men in uniform; all born and bred to both bleed and wear blue. His family and the majority of his co-workers support him every step of the way, so he doesn’t need to hide the fact that he prefers men over women. Between the job and his larger than life, loud and rowdy half Irish, half Italian family, there isn’t much time for dating, much less finding a guy that can deal with the stress and demands placed on the shoulders of an NYPD Detective.

Kory White is cocky and abrasive with most people, but it is all a mirage, a facade he hides behind to keep his heart safe. As a child, Kory lost his mother to an act of violence. Soon after, he and his baby sister Kassandra were separated by the system. Kassandra was immediately adopted, but Kory spent the next ten years cycling through foster homes before moving to the Big Apple. In an effort to keep everyone at a distance, Kory has meticulously built himself an alter ego: Hayden Cox, All Cocks’ cockiest model.

These two strong willed men definitely prove opposites do attract. Both are stubborn and hard headed to a fault, Kory more so than Jon. But Jon is used to being in control, the one calling the shots, and Kory fights him at every turn. Just when it seems they have found a way to navigate the uncharted territory that is love, tragedy knocks on Kory’s door yet again. Volatile and strong, even in the face of adversity, both men refuse to give up on each other - or their love.







T. M. Smith speaks; 
Hello everyone, and thank you to my muse for hosting me today on the How to Deal blog tour. I'm sharing the playlist for the book and how, specifically, certain songs relate to the story. I'm very much an inspirational person when it comes to writing, and music is a huge influence for me when I'm writing. Music is a powerful thing, it can make you laugh, make you cry, make you happy and at times, it can make you very angry. Every book I write has it's own playlist of songs that relate to people, places and things in the story. For instance, in Gay for Pay, Chris is a fan of Jazz music so that playlist has a lot of Jazz on it. I'm guessing that a lot of people are expecting dark, angry, metal music for Kory, but you will be sorely disappointed if so. Kory isn't the cocky, confident, jackass that he presents himself as. 

Here is the playlist for How to Deal, I'll explain how these songs relate to the story... 

Omen | Disclosure featuring Sam Smith
Where Are You Now | Skrillex w/Diplo featuring Justin Bieber
Whatya Want From Me | Adam Lambert
Where I Belong | Hometown
Handsome Man | Matt Abler
Just Breathe | Pearl Jam
Like I'm Gonna Lose You| Meghan Trainor & John Legend
Psycho | Puddle of Mudd
Lost Stars | Adam Levine
Another Lonely Night | Adam Lambert


Omen - One of the lines in this song is "I needed you to show me, without you I'm lonely." Well, if that doesn't describe Kory, what does?

Where Are You Now - There is a push and pull with Jon and Kory that is almost a constant, it is what makes them so strong in the end. But there is a time where the power shifts, Kory finds himself needing Jon more than he initially wants to admit and it scares him. 

Whatya Want From Me - I adore Adam Lambert and he is almost always going to be on all my playlists. This song, in fact, is on several of them. Everything about this song is so Kory. Come here, I want you, wait, I'm afraid, what do you want? Don't give up on me even if I'm mental!

Where I belong - Love is a deep and mysterious road. Well, aint that the damn truth!

Handsome Man - This song is almost like a letter from one lover to another. They aren't always together, the one partner is asking the other about his day, a partner that isn't always the best at expressing himself with words. So he's telling him with the lyrics of the song. I just thought that was right for Jon and Kory, they don't always have the best communication skills, but they try to always be there for each other. 

Just Breathe - Well, this is where the kleenex warning for the book comes into play. This song is all about love and loss and trying to survive in the face of tragedy. I will tell you it's not about Jon and Kory directly, though it could apply to their role in the tragedy. Someone else is going to loose something very important to them in this book and though it's fucking heart breaking, it's life. Life is about loving and losing and surviving, how we deal with that loss and move on. The title of the book isn't just about how Jon and Kory learn to deal with their vastly different life styles. There are more people in their worlds that experience things as well. 

Love you, Like I'm gonna lose you - Kory is so afraid to love anyone for fear of losing them. What he should be doing is loving them LIKE he is going to lose them!

Psycho - Kory is pretty mental. There is a chapter toward the end of the book, oh my, can you say drama queen melt down?! 

Lost Stars -  My interpretation of this song is a man that is lost, he has lost his way in life and doesn't feel like he matters, he doesn't feel like anyone sees HIM. Jon sees past the pain and the persona, he sees Kory, and he loves every torn up, scarred emotionally distant aspect of him. He also brings out the genuine, loving, fiercely loyal, devoted partner in Kory. 

Another Lonely Night - Jon and Kory have both been spending a lot of lonely nights at home and alone until they stumble into each other's lives. Will that change? 






My Review of How to Deal;

This is going to be the shortest review I have ever done because I was not scheduled to do a review and was not asked to. I just had to share my thoughts about My Dear Friend T. M. Smith’s latest work. I am so amazed at how her skills are getting better and better. Her characters seem to be coming to life in new ways for me. In this story the characters go on an emotional roller-coaster journey and take you with them, and at the end you are happy they did; or at least I was lol. Despite the obviously troubling level of blasphemy against The Lord God, the story is very well rendered. I fell in love with the two main characters, and with the Irish family in this story with all their beautiful chaos and shenanigans. I have already fallen in love hard with “The All Cocks Family”. The bringing together of these two rowdy clans into one story is almost too much and too funny to take. The story had an interesting plot that drew me in, and kept my interest. The sexual scenes were art to me, and several of them had me stopping to have some um, “Gentleman’s time” lol. It was the love between Jon and Kory that I felt most keenly though. They love to drive each other nuts, to fight and push each other’s buttons. They love to fuck, to make up, and to make love. It was their love for each other however that made me love them. It was not only their love, but also the subtle feeling of the pursuit...the game of chase, that made me want to keep reading their story until I got to their happily ever after, or at least to the end of the book lol. I hope you will pick up their story and read it, and I hope you will enjoy it as much as I did.

If I had to sum up Jon and Kory's story in one phrase it would be, “Love can be a massive challenge but it is worth everything to attain it”!

I give this book (which to others is a full length novel, but what is to me a Novella length book) six out of seven quills.

We stand with France our Friend and Ally





Recently France was attacked by islamic cowardly pig dog scum. When they did the same to us France stood by us in support, and despite what stupidity is going on with all of the governments of the world, I think we the people of America have showed that we understand, and empathize with the people of France, and that we will stand in support of them the way they did for us. This attack has just made our nations fondness for each other increase and our alliance that much stronger.

The juvenile evil people among us on this planet can and will continue to attack us all in an effort to make us affraid...in an effort to make us submit, or give up and die, but we never will! We will not back down, we will not give up, we will stand and we will fight, we will not submit or give into fear! We will live free and when the time comes die free, and make sure all the future generations of earth are free to truly live!

To our friends, brothers, and sisters in France...Peace! May God be with you and with us all. May you stay strong and may you rebuild quickly and find healing, comfort, and joy! Remember we stand with you and pray each day that Love lifts you up, and that the light of your beautiful country dispels the darkness and returns once again, and that life itself not only continues to go on like before; but that it finds you blessed and well in all good abundance and that you thrive and always overcome adversity!

Blessed Be!

All Souls Night






All Souls Night; 




On this night we light candles in remembrance and on behalf of All Souls, those lost and those who have found their way to The Light already. We offer prayers for the well being of our loved ones and the dearly departed who have crossed over, and wish them well. We also offer up prayers on behalf of all the souls who wander stuck in-between worlds, many of whom are not at rest and have not reached peace. We remember them and their plight, and offer up prayers as we would hope others would do for us if we were lost so that we could find our way home. Remember the teaching of Christ to treat others as we would wish to be treated? Well this is one of the multitude of meanings and applications of that teaching. 

With this observance the feast of Samhain ends, though the season of Samhain and The Harvest continues for us today until after the feast of Thanksgiving, after which Christmas-tide shall begin.

All Saints Day




All Saints Day!!! 


On this day all saints are honored. Candles are lit in remembrance of the lives they led. 

And by saints what I mean is all of the believers who have passed over. I do not believe you have to have performed three miracles and get elected by a committee of so-called holy men to be a saint. A saint in scripture is someone who was a believer who passed on and is now standing in God’s own abode with all of “the faithful”. I call these “The Good Ancestors”. Those people who lived their lives believing in God. I also do not make a huge distinction between spiritual ancestors, blood ancestors, adopted ancestors, ancestors of tradition, and so on. To me an ancestor is an ancestor.

So In Memoriam I leave this picture which is my own internet version lol (and no I did not make the picture lol) of a sacred perpetual flame, in honor of God's Saints!!!

Why all Christians should absolutely celebrate All Hallows Eve


Even if you have no cultural ties to the festival of Samhain now known as Halloween, if you are a christian you should celebrate this day in remembrance and joy!!! 






To all of those so-called christians out there who believe that The Eve of All Hallows, All saints day, & All souls night should not be celebrated; remember that OCT. 31st should always be celebrated by christians!!! 

Here is why... 

On OCT. 31st 1517 Martin Luther nailed the 95 theses to the door of the roman catholic church thus beginning the reformation and rebellion that would lead to the freedom of all christians to worship in the manner of their choice, and under the doctrine of their choice!!! So remember that your christian freedom began on The Eve of All Hallows!!!




To find information on a wonderful film adaptation of this story folly the link below; 





 Quote taken from the film mentioned above, from character Martin Luther; 




Samhain





 
Samhain or Samhein (pronounced Sow-in);

The festival of The Ancestors, The Great Harvest

The ancient and most holy festival day in the year of the ancient Irish Celts.
On this day the last of the great harvest festivals was celebrated. This day marked the end of one year and the beginning of another, and is rightly considered the Celtic new year. The first half of the year was winter or the dark half of the year. The veil between the worlds is thinnest at this time. Most Celtic festivals are three day feasts. This feast is unusual in that it is not only the day before, of, and after that are celebrated, though it might have been thus in ancient times. Since the advent of the church and Christianity it is The Eve of All Hallows, November 1st which is All Saints day, and the night of November 2nd which is All Souls night that are celebrated. The day before was probably when they brought in the last harvest and made preparations for the festival. It should be honored as well.

Families would have gathered together both to fellowship with each other and hold communion with their ancestors and with The Divine in whatever forms they believed in, on the eve of all hallows. Traveling would have been very rare on this night. Sacrifices to show thankfulness to The Divine, and to try and ritually ensure good harvests the following year would have been made. In some places we know that human sacrifices were made but not usually in the horrific manner that many assume. Almost all of the sacrifices would have been people who were willing. The Celts believed in the transformation of the soul and in reincarnation so much that it would not have been as traumatic a process for them as it would be for us in modern times. Most people believed that they were protecting their peoples by allowing themselves to be sacrificed. The sacrifices were also to try and garner favor with the powers that be, so as to make the cold harsh bitter winters as short as possible. Many of the human sacrifices at this time would have been elderly people who felt they had lived a long life and wanted to make sure the younger generations had the chance to do the same. It is also understood that in some places, those willing to be sacrificed would have been seen as heroic and it was believed that their souls would have ascended right into the halls of the gods where they would be seated with the gods having become themselves divine in nature. This would have also led some Celts to ancestral worship.

It was custom at this time and at the time of Beltaine, that all the fires in the land were extinguished for a time and the high-kings fire which was made by his Druids would have been the only fire burning during the ritual. Torches were lit from this fire and runners went out from the kings fire carrying the light to ritual purify all the fires in the land which were re-lit and reborn from the flames of the torches, the runners carried. It was a beautiful tradition that was wiped out by St. Patrickus, who despised and later murdered or forcibly converted the druids and or their followers. Hence the legend of driving the so-called snakes out of Ireland. Snakes in the case being symbolic of the druids.

After the advent of Christianity which brought with it the idea of the angel of death, or St. Death which has various names in Christian and Jewish mythology (traditionally The Arch-Angel Azriel The lead death angel, who is under the command of Gabriel), and who later became myth-ified to another archetypal figure altogether whom we call The Grim-Reaper; Death itself was also honored to a degree in some circles after this era.

Taxes for the kingdom and the high-king were also collected at this time. Groups of Druids with escorts from the Fianna (The High-King’s or Ard-Ri’s personal military police force), went out from the kings hall and traveled through out the whole of Ireland, going door to door as we say. This is what informed the much later tradition we know of as Trick or Treat. The title hearkens back to the idea of various punishments the druids dealt out to people if they refused to pay their taxes when they were able to do so. Much in the same way our own IRS would carry out various punishments on us today even if we couldn’t pay our taxes.  

This was a time of great feasting and celebration. Stories would have been told around hearth fires of legends and also family histories. At this time of the year, ancestors were seen as being very present amongst us. 

May you find yourself blessed with all good abundance this Hallowed Season!!! 

 Blessed Be!

A Memory to Share…





So today I spent a truly lovely day with a dear friend. For the purpose of this post I will call her “Lady D” to somewhat protect her identity, though she knows who she is lol. I have known her only for a brief time in life. For the past three years or so, one of the sweetest spirits I have ever encountered on this earth, with one of the kindest hearts has graced my life and become part of my family and my soul group. She is someone with whom I have had some of the greatest conversations of my life. She just gets me, and that is rare. I think I have a pretty great understanding of her heart of soul, and a healthy respect for her intellect. She is leaving the place where I reside. She is going out into the world to find her a new home and what to do with the next phase of her life. Today was possibly the last time I will see her in person. I hope that is not the case, but it might well be. As I look back on my time with her over the past few years, I can only be truly thankful for her presence. It has truly been my privilege in every sense of the word. I am so thankful to have had the chance to know her and call her friend. I am grateful to Spirit for letting our paths cross, even if only for a brief time. I am also thankful to her for being part of my journey these past years. Wherever she goes and whatever she does, and whoever she becomes from here on out; she goes with my love and my friendship, and best wishes and prayers for her life! Thank you for our time together Lady D, and thank you for such…such, a lovely day. Thanks for the laughter, thanks for tears, thanks for the talks, and thanks years. May God be with you always dear sister, and may your memory of me be as me memory of you; a light in the darkest shadows and times, when all other lights go out! Remember me with kindness of pray of thee please, and when those memories come…I ask, let them be with a smile and followed with laughter. When I think on you I know I shall smile, and hold you in a special place in my heart.

Blessed Be Lady D, Blessed Be

Fame and Fortune Blog Tour;

Greetings and Felicitations to one and all! The O'Raven Chronicles is pleased to be able to present this post stop for the Fame and Fortune Blog Tour for Author T. M. Smith!!!



Fame and Fortune
An All Cocks Story book #2
Love should be multiplied, not divided!


Victor Dimir moved to America with his traditional Romanian parents when he was just a child. His Romani parents taught him their traditions and how to be a shrewd business man, but it was the attention of a classmate at school that taught teenage Victor about his sexuality. When he came out to his parents he knew it would be difficult for them to understand, but he never expected them to disown him.

Andrew Jones grew up with a single mom and his grandmother teaching him about life, he had an absentee father at best. The only thing the man ever did for Andy that stuck was buy him a camera for his thirteenth birthday. When Andrew went off to college on a scholarship to study photo journalism, he wound up falling in love with his Romanian roommate.

They became inseparable and wound up starting their own business together: a gay porn website where people could go and watch romantic gay porn instead of the rough and tough, or wham bam thank you man crap that was flooding the internet at that time. After ten years together they were still perfectly happy, not realizing something was missing, until they met a broken young man that needed a family.

Matthew Carlson was homeless, jobless and broken. At sixteen he ran away from home after being brutally assaulted by several young men that he thought were his friends, and then being told he brought it on himself for being gay by his parents. Matthew has done a lot of things these last few years just to get by. When he finds the flyer for All Cocks, he decides to call and see where it leads. What has he got to lose?

Matthew has deep rooted scars that aren’t visible on the outside to most. But when he walks into All Cocks, both Victor and Andrew can see the darkness in his eyes; they also see him. Can three men that did not know they needed each other get past the stigma of society to find a place of happiness, together?

*Advisory warning: This story contains a scene of sexual assault.*


















Proof Victor is a vampire, Look at those sexy fangs! lol...Just kidding...slightly...oh my; *Panting*

Interview with Andrew;

I am so pleased to have as my guest today Andrew from All Cocks who takes a very central role in T. M. Smith’s latest book, Fame and Fortune.

I have decided to rent out a retreat house this week to do the interview. It comes complete with a hot-tub. So I have to tell you that I get to be in a tub with a half naked Andrew, one of the most blindingly beautiful hottest, sexiest men alive!!! I, of course, because I do not look like him will be fully clothed in the water lol. I believe he is waiting for me. Come on and let’s go join him.

*… We are walking down a long hall way. Ok now let me peer around the corner…OH my, yes, there he is in the tub…fucking hey…that is fine!!!

…Panting hu hu hu huhhhhhhh….*

*I open the door and we go in*  





So, welcome Andrew, I have to tell you I have long been a fan. Between you and me I still have that early video you posted of you and Victor online years ago and I still break it out and watch it. Now of course I have even more reasons to be a fan. I love the work you produce at your company. Even more than that though, I love how you treat the men who work for you and I love that you and your partners have paved your own way in love and journeyed beyond the common social conditionings. I was honored when I was asked to perform your wedding recently. It is one of my favorite wedding ceremonies I have ever performed. Thank you for coming by and blessing me with your presence today to answer a few burning questions I have as a fan. Beyond all of that…You are one of the most blindingly beautiful men on the planet!!! Wow.

“Oh stop before I blush…” *said in sarcastic tone*, “…Of course, anything for you Lucien. And the ceremony was beautiful by the way, thank you”.

Of course…it was my absolute pleasure!!! 

So alright let’s get to the Q & A.

“Water’s warm, come on in”.

*I step into the water and take all of you via this mind camera with me. Now we are in the hot-tub with Mcstudmuffin!!! Think about that for the rest of this interview lol*


Lol thanks, ok…


Question 1:

What immediately drew you to Victor back in collage?

“That voice, I mean damn, you’ve heard him. But the more we talked, I saw he was smart and sexy as well. I think he knew I belonged to him the moment we met. Just took a little persuasion on my part, if you know what I mean”.

Question 2:

When you decided to be together in business and not just personally, was the idea originally porn, or did you have any other ideas for a career at first?

“We didn’t really. Victor finished his degree at a record pace and started working for a Pharmacy, making the big bucks, while I finished mine. We never set out to work together, much less start an online porn company. We were a bit more risqué when we were younger and some of those risks wound up on the web. It was the comments on those postings along with my irritation at not being able to find any good porn online that gave birth to the idea. Well, to be honest it was more like Victor calling me out so I had to at least give it an honest effort. A little more honesty, I expected it to tank within a month or two, but it took off like a rocket and not long after that, Victor quit his job in the corporate morgue and we focused all our energy and attention on truly making All Cocks the best online gay porn site we could. I think our efforts paid off”.

Question 3:

What do you look for when choosing a new model for the All Cocks brand?

“That’s a hard question to answer because I don’t know that I look for any certain thing. Of course they have to be built and hung, that’s a given. They have to be personable, because in a way, they are selling the All Cocks brand, so they have to have the right personality and mentality to do that. I like diversity as well in my models, and while we have a few guys that are strictly bottoms or tops, versatility can take you a long way in the industry these days.

I’ll tell you a little secret. I didn’t want to hire Kory or Connor, that was all Victor. He saw something in them I missed at the time, and while it has been challenging, especially with Kory, I’m glad Victor overruled me on those two because they’ve brought a lot of fans to the site. And since Jon came into Kory’s life, he’s a little less prickly, thank god”.

Question 4:

What inspires you when coming up with ideas and story-lines? Because for me and I think with many of your members, I love the fact that romance and passion seem to play a part in every scene ya’ll shoot! It is not all just wam-bam-thank-you-man like on many other adult entertainment sites.

“It’s a combination of things. I read a lot of romance novels, so I get some ideas there. I watch some of our competitor’s videos occasionally so I can see what everyone else is putting out at any given time, and sometimes an idea will spurn from that. But then I read online forums and pay close attention to what members in the various groups say they would like to see in a film. We have comment sections for each of our videos as well as for the models and we hired a marketing company to compile listings of those comments for us to put together scenes and scenarios for scenes. It was online comments that pointed us in the direction that led to our first and still bestselling full length DVD, Love on the Docks.

I also think about things I would want to see. There was a scene that was never shot between Mattie and Jordan when Mattie was still considering starting in the industry, I didn’t realize it at the time, but that scene was my subconscious describing what I wanted with Mattie. I mean, think about it, I’m a happy, committed man, but I am still a man and I know what we think is sexy.

Then you have to realize that I’m not the only one bringing ideas to the table. Victor has a say in what we shoot as well at times, and now Jordan. They’ve come up with an absolutely atrocious idea for our next full length DVD. If it weren’t for comments on the sites, including ours, I’d dig my heels in on this one, it’s so out there. Thankfully Mattie and I have full control of set design and wardrobe”.

Question 5:

So, will All Cocks just continue on forever for the three of you, or do you think there will be a time you retire from the adult entertainment industry and possibly pursue other avenues of business? Or just retire and if so, what can you imagine yourself doing then in either of those scenarios? 

“There is that old saying, ‘All good things must come to an end.’ I’m certain at some point we will step away from the business. Whether or not we retain control and put someone in charge, sell off our shares or just shut it down and walk away completely, I couldn’t tell you. Whatever we decide we will make the decision together. Knock on wood, that day is a ways off. Regardless, I’m certain I will always be behind a camera in some form or another”.  

And on that note…Don’t forget about the series of photos you are going to do for me, the beauty and spiritual archetypes of men in nature; so I can update my wall art at home and at work! Lol

“ I haven’t forgotten. I am excited. It has been a while since I have shot any artistic photos to sell just for fun or commission. I’ve lined up some of our best models to do a shoot for you. I’m quite certain you’ll be happy with the outcome”.

I am certain I will as well.

Questions 6:

Ok, I, as a minister, am always fascinated by people’s spiritual life. Do you have a spiritual path? What do you believe in as a human being? Do you belong to any particular religion or spiritual community?

“I’m not religious as in going to church, but I’m spiritual in that I believe in God and heaven and angels. I think Mattie is much like me on this one, it’s Victor that has these strange customs and talismans hidden throughout the house. You can take the boy out of Romania , but you can’t take the culture out of the boy”. 

Remind me to ask him about some of those I would love to see them. Maybe I can show him some of mine as well. Lol

Question 7:

Ok, now, I was given your permission ahead of time to ask all the dirty, flirty, fun, and naughty and even down right filthy questions I want; so I have a few of those as well. This is a two part question. What first drew you to your husband Matthew? And the first time the three of you made love, what got you most excited?

“His eyes. They were full of pain and sadness when we first met him. The more time he spent with us, the clearer they got. And I don’t think I will ever be able to put into words the way it felt the first time he looked at me and I saw the love in those deep brown pools. And that second part, that’s a secret, gentleman don’t kiss and tell”.

Question 8:

So when you are making Love with Victor in what ways is it different then making love with Matthew and do you enjoy it when Victor takes you forcefully as much as we do? Because for me, some of my favorite naughty parts of your story that you shared with us and allowed us into, was when Victor was just pounding you hard enough to almost break you lol.

“Victor is a ferocious lover, he always has been, and I can take it. The difference would be that Victor only ever comes completely unglued with me. And I love being pounded into the headboard. With Victor it’s like a no holds barred WWF cage match. With Mattie it’s more subdued but no less fulfilling. Mattie is very sensuous while Victor is more animalistic, but they are both sexy as hell. And on the occasion that we are all three connected at the same time, well that is just pure fucking magic”!

Question 9:

Ok so now for a knock down - drag this to the lowest base graphic kind of question I can. Because, well, I can… and how often am I going to get this opportunity? Lol! Does Victor’s Romanian juice taste different and better than American juice?  Yup that is right, I went there, because I am so jealous you have a Victor. I want a Victor Lol! Yes that is me admitting to the sin of coveting lol. I am sure I will be sorry about it later and repent. Probably…Most likely….Maybe….or not. Hahahahaha

*Andrew falls into a fit of laughter that has him turning red and crying; and he almost falls back into the hot-tub as we get out of the tub and begin to dry off before having a seat. At this point I am almost having a panting fit because Andrew is so fucking sexy!!! *

“Oh my god, you are a hot mess Lucien. And to answer your question, yes, Victor and Mattie each have their own different, unique flavor”.

HAHAHA I thought so! Ok Bonus question:

Do you have a model that you are attracted to sexually that you and victor before Matthew considered ever inviting to your bed? And we can dispense with all the fake polite answers like, Oh no I only saw Victor, or Oh no never with Employees. We are talking about attraction and fantasy lol. You work with some seriously hot fucking men. Besides Victor, I have my personal favorites. Kris and Jordan are two of them. I am also quite fond of Kory. Lol

“We actually did mix business and pleasure early on. There was a gorgeous man of color that worked for us the third year we were in business and we mixed it up a couple times with him. I won’t go into details, but it didn’t end well. That was the last time we invited a third into our relationship until Mattie. You’ll note I didn’t say invited into our bed, because we never invited any of our playmates into our bed. Mattie was the first and only one to have that honor”.   

Ok well that is all the questions I have for you… right now, I am sure I will want to know more later lol perhaps off the record *wink wink*. Thank you so much for coming by and spending this time with me. And now for a total break with all precedence. I am going to let you ask me three questions. Anything you like, there is nothing off limits because you have been so candid with me and are one of my new best friends. A friend who doesn’t mind that I drool over him, his husbands, and several of his employees lol. So ask away.

Hmmm, it’s sort of like getting three wishes with a genie, I don’t know what to ask.

1.Top or Bottom”?

I am what I call a versatile bottom lol, I prefer most of the time to bottom but every once in a while through circumstance or because of a certain guy I have the urge to top lol. And that is more than our audience ever wanted to know about me lol. Sorry gents and ladies lol.

“I get that. Ok 2. If you could have one night with an All Cocks model, which one would it be? Model Lucien, keep your dirty mind off my two men”!

Off your two men…does that mean I can desire a night with you? lol

“Careful now, I might just have to tell Victor how naughty you have been today and he might just have to put you over his knee and spank you! He has a temper you know”.

*Andrews light hearted naughty chuckle fills the air*

*I am now seriously blushing scarlet while Andrew laughs at me*

No seriously lol, I don’t know. There are three that I am really attracted to. I really like Kris, Jordan , and Kory. Having said that…have you seen Kris’s best friend and his man, and also Kory’s new man? I have to say I might desire a night with one or more of the extended family at All Cocks. If I have to give a definitive answer though…probably Jordan the most. He is just so fucking dom and sexy! I long to have a man who knows how to truly dominate me in the bedroom and who knows how to be an equal partner outside of the bedroom lol. 









3. So…What are your thoughts on Prison Porn”? 

Hahahahahaha, Um well I have mixed thoughts. I have seen it done really well…and I have seen some that is just too fucking ridiculous or grotesque, to personally give me the thrills. I do have a couple of scenes I have saved though that are fun! Lol

“Really, you’ll have to send me the links for the fun ones, I’ll be sure you have my card before I leave.”

Ok I will do that. Thanks again Andrew, I will call you later. Bye sweets!

*And there he goes folks…let’s us all wish him a fond farewell as we drool ourselves to death. Lol*

*Andrew smiles and waves before, making a mad dash to the bathroom to change.*

*I drool after him as he leaves and for a minute or two afterwards…I need a cold shower now I think*

 Oh he is terrific isn’t he folks!?!

Ok so, we all know that authors and their readers have different Ideas in their heads when it comes to what characters look like. So we have been told who the character inspirations were for the characters by the author. I thought though it would be fun to share what the characters look like in my mind lol.

So here are the Characters as they appear in my mind when I am reading. I am sure the characters themselves as well as the author will either get irritated or get a kick out of the ideas my mind came up with upon listening to the characters and their descriptions.

How Victor Looked in my head till the author introduced me to him lol, say hi to D.O. ; 









I had at first a porn superstar named Lucas in my mind as I began to read the story and then it changed to Matt Dallas;







Matthew for me sort of changed form several times lol. The last two times was a young Heath Ledger, and the it finally settled on an image of a young blonde man whose name I do not know but he became my Matthew until as with all the other characters the author introduced me to her visualizations of the characters; 





*Several minutes later after Andrew has left the building… the Phone Rings*

Please hold on everyone while I answer the phone...  “Hello”! 

*a deep husky thickly accented voice answers* 

Lucien, it is Victor. I am thinking I tell you about my dream of me and man in robes wearing cross. 


*Me...squeek* ....  “Oh um... Hi”!

“Joking aside, you come to studio and we shoot a private scene with you, Jordan and Kris”.

*dead air for a few seconds*

“Lucien, are you still being with me”?

“Oh, sorry, yes I am still being with you. Um  hu well, I’ll have to check my calendar”.  *Lol squeak*

*Victor’s rolling laughter floats through the phone*

“You do that”.

*call ends*

*O-mg I want to hide under the covers now but first I absolutely need a cold shower*

 So good bye everyone!!!

*shower shower shower shower panting panting panting panting*
