Interview with Irv O. Neil

Interview with Irv O. Neil
When did you start writing erotica and why?
I've been a freelance writer since 1974, when I sold my first porn novel. I got into erotica initially to get professional experience as a scribe, not to make it my life's work; but as the years went by I realized it was a genre I enjoyed and was very good at. There were also a lot of opportunities for me, not just as a writer but as an editor, and working at the height of the adult magazine business in the 1970s through the mid-2000s, I had hundreds of stories published. I still write occasionally for magazines, but more now for the web and also I publish my own line of erotic ebooks. Two of my latest are DARVA CHAN: CRUELTY QUEEN OF THE PIANO, and RULE BY CLEAVAGE. I also have a blog called "Erotica Is My Trade."

What inspires you to write in your genre?
I've written erotic stories of all kinds but I most enjoy writing femdom (female domination) tales, where women control men and, to demonstrate their feminine power, make the guys do all sorts of humiliating things. I am turned on by femdom and draw either on my own experiences or fantasies for my plots. There is a lot of fetishism, and kinky roleplaying, head games, and intense dialogue. In my femdom fiction, female characters are dominatrices and the men their adoring worshippers and slaves.

What makes you different?
I try to pull readers into my tales as compellingly as the best fiction written today. My stories are written very realistically so that the reader can feel that the experiences are actually happening, no matter how unusual the situation. There are touches of humor and detailed characterization and atmosphere to make the people and situations in my stories come alive. I love reading fiction of many kinds, and I apply all the skills I've learned from great fiction to my own stories. I hope you'll try them and enjoy them!
