"Why would anyone suck a dildo?"

How would *you* answer that question? Wait. Hold on a sec. How would *you* answer that question if your *mother* asked it?

See, I had my mom proof my second Harlequin book—which I am turning in shortly. She is an excellent copyeditor. And she's not judgmental. Most of the errors she found were typos or incorrect punctuation. But I nearly fell of my chair when I read the post-it that said, "Why would anyone suck a dildo?"

This is what you get for having your mother proof your porn.
A whole can of worms you never should have opened!

XXX,
Alison

I once got a freelance proofreading job from a small porn publisher because, being a small company, someone had asked their mother to do the job, and she changed every instance of "vagina" to "angina."

What'd she change "cunt" to, D?

And T&S—are you really from A.S.S.? I did a whole post awhile back without realizing you really existed!

- maybe 'aunt'?

Angina is bad alright, but at least it wasn't mangina.

Marvelous anecdote, Alison! :-)

Wow - I'm not sure exactly HOW I would answer that, never mind if mom asked.

Must think about that for awhile....
