Close your eyes. Now picture yourself sitting amongst a cafe bustling with a thick palpable energy of artistry, eagerly awaiting author and feminist porn icon, Madison Young to step up onto the small stage, with her recently released memoir, “Daddy” clutched firmly in her hands. As this San Franciscan kinkster and radical performance artist reads to you with passion and intimacy you feel as if you are simultaneously the only one in the room and a part of something bigger than yourself, as she opens her lips and shares her stories of heroism, heart break, and struggles in the fight for sexual freedom and the visceral journey of sexual discovery through the lens of a feminist submissive who grew up in Ohio.
Your hands are sweaty and your heart is palpitating like wild stallions as you raise your hand to ask a question, to be a part of the conversation. You extend a copy of “Daddy” and ask for Madison to sign it, her rouged lips meet the pages under her inky scribble, a gester of her unbridled amorous nature, that will accompany you through your own private reading of the book.
