Home — Ladies’ Lounge
Welcome to the Ladies’ Lounge on R.C. Smith’s website!
(Gentlemen are welcome to enjoy the ladies’ company, but, please, behave.)
Make yourself comfortable, with a glass of your favorite beverage. We can recommend the Prosecco.
Texts by female authors, exploring and expressing the so-called darker regions of their minds — fantasies, desires and memories concerning sex, submission, agression, violence, pain, and death.
These short texts are as different from each other as their authors are, but what they have in common is their authenticity and their undaunted candor. Enter their worlds at your own peril. More to come.
Trigger warning: Whatever your triggers are, be warned.
Comments welcome, please write to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Nothing good comes of forcing desire to conform to political principle. (...) We rarely want the things we should.
Most desire is nonconsensual. Most desires aren’t desired.
(Andrea Long Chu)
What would happen if one woman told the truth about her life? The world would split open.
