About Derek Adam

Derek is a retired Emergency Medical Professional and has been a lover of telling stories his entire life, having made the transition from “filthy liar” to “sexy author” about the same time silver hairs started showing up in his face (and other places.) Aside from being a published author and freelance writer he’s also a gamer, gym rat, snow hater (despite living in Michigan), life liver, stunt double for Hulk, and he considers himself to be aggressively unfancy.

A Halloween Timeline So True It’s Spoopy

October is my favorite month - not because it's my birthday, or because I have multiple kids with birthdays this month (we can guess what Derek likes to do to break mid-winter boredom), but because it's HOLLA-HALLOWEEN. Fuck everything else, it's time to get spoo-kay! At least, it should be. That's how it USED to be [...]

After all, a few episodes of wilderness documentaries and it's clear that sex isn't really that complex between animals. Humans are the problem. We always have to complicate shit.

The 2017 Edition of Things People Put Up Their Butts (and other places)

You know what I like about people? They’re kinky. The people who loudly proclaim their innocence? Those people are especially kinky. Those are the people not afraid of whips, chains, and putting things up their butts. One survey showed that 85% of people have willingly engaged in some form of BDSM. Some cultures are more [...]
