I have FINALLY finished my “Great Costa Rican Novel” after years of struggle, and it is now available in both eBook and hardcopy editions from Amazon.
Magdalena – A Prostitute’s Life in Costa … [Read More...]
The leading man in the "Clueless Clyde" trilogy is fictional. I have to repeat this once in a while because I get folks who are SURE the book is just disguised autobiography. Well... IT IS NOT! I drew mostly on stories I heard from others, though there are a few things that came from personal experience. But I will repeat one more time: I am not Clyde! … [Read More...]
This could mean two things. The first is where one of us goes to some massage parlor, doesn't see his heart's desire, and moves on to check out another place. Or two... rinse and repeat. Then there is the merry go-round that the chicas do, which, more often than not, is the cause of the first (monger) MP go-round.

Everyone reading this is either contemplating his first visit or remembers his first visit.

It's not yet available for sale, but "Dances with Prostitutes - Costa Rica Style" will soon be available as an audio book. Obviously I want it to be a success, but more than whatever money it makes for me, it was a LOT of work.
When I started the project, I knew there would be some obstacles. First thing I had to fight was the noise outside my bedroom, … [Read More...]
It can be a matter of pride. The idea never occurred to me until I was approaching 50. I wish it HAD occurred to me, but I never seriously considered it. I don't think I was too PROUD as much as I had a lot of preconceptions about the whole business. And at the time and place I was, my preconceptions weren't too far off base. The options were streetwalkers, … [Read More...]
Continuing from the last post:
...she wants to give you a great massage and blow job... the reflex reaction is the same as back home, but the rational part of the mind says "wait a sec, dude, this is going to cost you." The next thought is "is this THE girl I want to spend my money on?"
