Henry Miller
Are we sure that Henry Miller never sexted? I guess, unless ghosts are real—which they're not—then he couldn't have sexted. I mean, Miller's whole thing was saying stuff like, "Do anything, but let it produce joy. Do anything, but let it yield ecstasy.” And you know what potentially produces joy and ecstasy? A sext. There are so many quotes from him that are good to just use directly (credit him of course, never plagiarize a sext—gross) like, “All I ask of life is a bunch of books, a bunch of dreams, and a bunch of cunt.” And they weren't all so sexually blunt, some things Miller wrote were just lovely and romantic, like “To have her here in bed with me, breathing on me, her hair in my mouth—I count that something of a miracle.” Because who said sexts can't be romantic? No one. Things can be lovely and warped all at once. Beauty is distortion, someone once told me, and he was absolutely right. As Miller also said, “Everybody says sex is obscene. The only true obscenity is war.”
