Don Julian Winslow

Who is Don Julian Winslow? Hard to say; but I can tell you who he is NOT. He is not Don Winslow who writes whodunits for a living. In a case of bad timing (for Don Winslow), Don Julian Winslow (aka Don Winslow - a pen name) emerged in the golden age of erotic fiction and had established an international reputation as a writer of quality erotica. Then along came the author with birthright to the very name and, as he struggled to become a literary icon in his chosen genre, he found to his alarm that people kept asking him if he still wrote those "dirty books." One can only sympathize with a writer who tries so hard to be taken seriously, only to find his reputation soiled by a common pornographer! And so it goes. Life is unfair.

And so we can tell you dear reader that Don Julian Winslow is an internationally best-selling author who has written some 20 books of erotic fiction. Hollis Compton, critic for New Age Publications, has characterized Winslow's work as "pure porn, unpretentious...and masterfully done." (Contact:

From time to time we need to be reminded about the place of erotic literature in our lives. That place was summarized best by Michael Perkins, in his "The Secret Record":

...These are some of the arguments for an intelligent reading of erotic literature and for its acceptance as a legitimate genre of writing, but the most important is pleasure, which is to say: what is wrong with reading a book for the purpose of both physical and mental stimulation? And what is aroused in us by a reading of the classics but the very basic emotions of pity, sympathy, love and terror? Why do we forbid ourselves sexual arousal when we read?"

And finally I leave you with the words of that superb actress Tiffany Clark, who in her role as Renee in "Hot Dreams" so well encapsulates my view of the whole thing:

To some people sex is sex,
To Lisa, sex is theater
To me, sex is opera -
But then, I'm another story.
