Who is this character named Irv O. Neil?
Welcome to my blog. I’ve written under various noms de porn but “Irv O. Neil” is the one I use most frequently. As a writer/editor for adult magazines and films since 1974, I have worked in all erotica formats. Perhaps you are familiar with my name from some of the publications I edited–Cheeks or Leg World, for example. Or the porn star, stripper, and dominatrix interviews I did for Fox, Black Tail, D-Cup, Leg Show, Hot Salsa!, Over 40, and Oriental Dolls, among others. Or maybe you’ve seen the weekly online newsletters I wrote for HotLegsAndFeet, DDFBusty, and 1By-Day, three terrific websites from DDF Productions in Europe. From 2011 to 2014 I also wrote a weekly column, “Notes of a Rebel Subbie,” for the late and sorely missed femdom website Domme Dose.
Over the years, I have written novels, short stories, confessional letters, X-rated screenplays, articles, magazine photo blurbs (known in the biz as “girl copy”), and book and movie reviews. I have commissioned and directed photo shoots of models. I have even posed in pictorials in Leg Show, Leg Action, Tight, and Juggs–although in “character roles” without showing my pecker which, believe me, the world is not waiting to see. Working in this business has been fun and interesting. It’s had its ups and downs like any trade, but happily more ups than downs–knock wood! (I’m a bit superstitious.) I’ve also done my non-explicit “carnal character acting” in X-rated films such as Our Naked Eyes (I played an anti-porno preacher), Sweet Spurt of Youth (as a porn studio still photographer), Raw Talent 3 (as a gangster), and in Vivid’s 1998 classic The Masseuse 3 in my most natural role–as a lapdance customer! 😉
The erotica industry is obviously changing in this Internet era. Everybody knows that from stories on cable tv and features in mainstream news media. I’m no longer editing magazines, although I still write for them; and now I’m self-publishing stories in e-books, too. My first, available on Kindle at Amazon, was called Learning To Be Cruel. I have many more available there now as well. I like to write female domination stories. Maybe I’ll publish them in matching print editions too, if demand warrants it. We’ll see. I’ll put news about my various publications here on this blog, as I muse about things that interest me and that are part of my life as a writer of sexy fiction. I’ll share writing tips, too, for creating your own erotica.
Call it erotica, call it porn, call it smut–it’s all sexual fantasy brought to life for audiences to enjoy, whether you read it on a screen or in a book, or watch it on a DVD or streaming video. That’s the stuff I write. I hope you’ll try my e-books, and let me know your reactions. But whether you read my stories or not, I hope you’ll enjoy this blog!
Ye ole porn scribe, Uncle Irv
