    Higher, yes. Classier, no. Trash is trash whether it falls on you from the sky or you dive into it at the dump.

    The difference is reading requires considerable mental effort; viewing a video does not. Those who read sexually explicit material actively consume it. Those who watch a video passively consume it. To me, the greater sin lies in reading than watching, but I think there's no difference in God's eyes.

    That's an interesting thought right there.

    Did you read the Twilight books? I read them and then watched the movies and loved them both!

    Absolutely and this is the reason my book is going to be bigger than "50 Shades of Grey" 100 fold.

    The book explains "EVERYTHING" I've experienced with women since becoming a woman's escort in 1993 but none of it is pornographic at all.

    I'm not pushing or selling my book here. I'm only making a prediction of how successful it will be because I don't know of any other woman's escort who's written a full-length novel about all his highly exciting adventures.

    The people who have read it have asked if I used any kind of subliminal messaging as a way to give women a desire to have me as their professional companion and I would wrinkle my eyebrows before saying, "Do what...?"

    My book makes a major shift towards the end and all the people that have read it --- who are mostly women, have said they love it even more with that shift and I don't know of any other book in the world like this either.

    Setting some pretty high expectations aren't you? Heh.

    Oh absolutely and for good reason. I know that I am supposed to behave as if I've already accomplished my dreams and they will happen as long as I believe. Now, you can take that to mean you're supposed to believe in yourself or in God Almighty and that's up to you.

    I just know I believe in the absolute Power of God over anything else so, with that being true, I know my book will save millions just because of how it truly honors the Lord.
