Book Description

Do you believe in the freedom to read? What about the freedom to buy your favorite guilty pleasure? Did you know that in early 2012, you - yes, you - almost lost that right when one company tried to force a digital media ban on all stories that it deemed inappropriate? In this short parody, Freida Wright exercises her freedom to write, and your freedom to buy, a witty tale of sex and corporate control.

Thomas and Melanie have a serious problem – they want to have sex! But as two new lovers, the strange quantity of hoops through which they must jump before consummating their attraction are bizarre at the least; terrifying at most. The penalties for sexual infractions are powerful and invasive, regulating what could be a wonderfully romantic evening and scaring the BeJesus out of them. Will they be able to grope their way through the dizzying maze of technical requirements so that their tale can at last enjoy a happy ending? Or does a “happy ending” cross the line?

Find out, in this hilariously playful parody that addresses censorship by corporate bullies.



About the author:

Freida Wright may, or may not, be a young woman or an old man. She may also, but not likely, possess supernatural powers that may, or may not, have been used to procreate with her partner. Her children don’t, but could, have crossed eyes and cleft palates because her husband is much older and of no relation. But most importantly, Freida Wright is an advocate for first amendment rights in the United States.

In February 2012, Paypal issued an edict censoring erotic content across the internet. The effect was to ban stories about Woody Allen (married his adopted daughter) or Morgan Freeman (set to marry step grand daughter) type romantic relationships--that's right things that are legal in the real world were now banned in fiction. To rub salt in the wound,Paypal just calls everything incest whether it actually is or not. Then Paypal equated the BDSM lifestyle with rape, which is about a 100 different kinds of wrong. So no more slap and tickle in erotic fiction.

They used a lot of scary buzzwords incorrectly to hide their policing of morality.

Meanwhile Paypal continued to sell banned content on their parent site, Ebay, which was confusing and inconsistent. The up shot of their actions has been criticized by the Electronic Frontier Foundation and the National Coalition Against Censorship. It has shrunk the bookseller market limiting opportunities for authors and readers as well as hindering small businesses that provide a vibrant marketplace.

This fictional account does a good job of highlighting how Paypal is influencing fiction and what they are taking away from readers as well as writers. The last scene is quite funny.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Comical Take On The Book Banning Fiasco March 6, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
If you are looking for a good chuckle at the expense of a corporate giant that is imposing its moral views on readers who have a right to read and spend their hard earned money on what they chose, and writers who have a right to write what they choose then "Two People Having Sex" is for you.

This erotic parody is well written, thought out and edited. It takes in all of the concerns of the authors who have been affected by the crackdown on erotica and puts those concerns into a great entertaining read.

"Two People Having Sex," is $0.99 very well spent.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely hilarious March 5, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Without going into the specifics of the PayPal rules, I have to say I found this absolutely hilarious. The contortions and confusions the characters go through trying to figure out what's allowed and what's not led to me laughing loudly enough to draw looks from people in the coffee shop.

5.0 out of 5 stars This Was An AMAZING Read! March 6, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This short story was amazing, it was funny, stayed on point and an excellent stab at policy. Erotica is meant to be sexy, hot and more than a little gritty when the plot calls for it. Writers shouldn't be censured for their thoughts. Some of the greatest authors in history have had books banned, burned and placed onto lists, restraints shouldn't be placed on creativity. Violence and other uncomfortable subjects are found in every genre, why should erotica be singled out for what can be found in most Mainstream books? I applaud this book and would recommend it to anyone to read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sad but True March 5, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a humorous commentary on censorship in America.

Melanie and Thomas just want to have sex. In this fictitious world of Big Brother, they need lawyers, contracts, and lots of red tape before they can do "the deed". And, even then, there are rules, plenty of them. This story parallels the state of erotica today, and the effects of corporations who dictate what can and cannot be published.

I loved the end. Priceless!
