Erotic author and filmmaker Ernest Greene, author of Master of O, and pioneering film legend Nina Hartley will be on hand on Thursday, January 29th at HUSTLER HOLLYWOOD in West Hollywood for a reading of and a Q&A about Greene’s novel, Master of O. The event will begin at 8:00pm, and is free to the public.
In this two-part kinky event, Greene and Hartley will read selections from Greene’s novel Master of O, a retelling of the BDSM classic Story of O set in contemporary Los Angeles and told from the master’s point of view. Then, they will conduct a Q&A with attendees about the novel and about Dominant/Submissive relationships in general.
Master of O follows half-brothers Ray and Steven — two men with little in common except for their shared passion for the dynamically beautiful O, a talented photographer with a secret life as a slave to the sexual whims of the competitive, and emotionally flawed, siblings.
“There are two sides to every story,” said Greene. “Master of O is a re-imagination of the characters as seen from a dominant man’s point of view, rather than from the submissive O’s. In my novel, I drew reality-based composites of people I’ve known from the BDSM culture and incorporated them into these rich characters.”
The HUSTLER HOLLYWOOD store is located at 8920 Sunset Blvd. in West Hollywood.
