In a bookstore in Sydney today, I was paying for a used copy of Henry Miller’s Tropic of Cancer


In a bookstore in Sydney today, I was paying for a used copy of Henry Miller’s Tropic of Cancer. My American accent gave me away. The old bookstore clerk said, “Beware of Donald Trump.” I said, “He is just entertainment. He won’t get elected.” The bookstore man said, “That’s what they said about Bush’s second term.” I almost choked. Yes, I too had thought it impossible that Americans would re-elect George Bush. Was it impossible that we would elect Donald Trump?
On this same walk, I saw a poster about refugees. Google later told me there are thousands of these posters all over Australia. The poster I saw had graffiti on it. Below “Real Australians” someone had written “are aboriginals.”

I just screened The Atlas of Erotic Anatomy & Arousal at Center for Sex and Culture. It was a great event.

Thanks for bringing erotic wisdom to California. Your video Atlas should be shown to every high school kid in the world. I don’t trust sex educators who don’t know anatomy. Knowing chakras is not enough in the 21st century. Thank you for your brilliant Atlas. I hope sex educators know that they can rent it or buy it but they can’t ignore it.

Unfortunately, the Electorate of our country did elect the totally inept and clueless Ronald Reagan and W. Bush to the presidency. It could happen again with Trump, God Help Us.

I said, “He is just entertainment. He won’t get elected.”

I’m old enough to remember hearing EXACTLY the same sentence said about Reagan in 1980.
