Charmed, I'm Sure

One Hundred Sex Poems

by D.L. Forbes

Book Image Not Available Book Image Not Available
Overview
I grew up in a particularly primitive era and society – the United Kingdom in the 1950's and 60's – which deemed it imperative that the moors of archaic religions and laws of the State should control the private and consensual sexual activity of the adult population. As a young lad, I wondered why most adults were so concerned and fidgety about what other adults did sexually in private, and I knew instinctively, as the young often believe they do, that many of the conventions and laws that adults perpetrate were simply a load of old malarkey. I decided that when and if I made it to puberty and beyond, I would ignore all such specious and aberrant strictures and work out the precepts of my own life and my own sexuality for myself, which I did, and do, and here in these poems is a small chunk of that. These poems span a period of over forty years, and are not presented chronologically, but are those that drew my interest or a specific remembrance, and taken randomly from many note and sketchbooks, as a rambling sampler. These poems are of sexual content, often explicitly so, and are intended for adult readers, ideally by those who do not feel obliged to excoriate sexuality not their own.
