"paying For It" By Chester Brown

4 posts in this topic

I read this graphic novel by a popular Canadian comic-strip artist by the name of Chester Brown.

It was a pretty good read - the man in question came to the conclusion that romantic love had no place in his life due to it historically causing more misery than happiness. Not willing to give up his sex life but not wanting to have to get another girlfriend to get it (he doesn't have the social skills to pick up girls for casual sex) he decides to start visiting escorts.

 

It was really interesting as he comes to some interesting conclusions about love and how romantic monogamous relationships are by their very nature oppressive and conducive to eventually miserable states of being for both parties involved. Moreover, he ends up exposing the realities of the typical relationship that manifests between WG and punter (or john as he calls it) - educational for guys thinking about punting and punters who can identify with a lot of the author's experiences. He finishes with a list of arguments for legalization in Canada of punting. It might provide some good ammo against the deluded ultra-feminists threatening to banish punting into the shadow of the black market completely in the near future...

 

A very good read.

I couldn't wait to read it so I bought it. Actually it was a real ballache as I bought the ebook via Kobo only it wouldn't download. I contacted customer support only for them to refund me 3 days later saying the book was currently not available in any ebook format. I'm sure the fact you can download contradicts this assertion but hey - go for it if you can find it.

 

I've got to admire how this guy is so honest and blunt about his love of seeing escorts - to all his friends and indeed the world.

 

 

Here is a 4 part video where he is interviewed about his book. There is also an interview with Fanny Kiefer on youtube.
