Jillian Keenan, author of Sex with Shakespeare, talks much ado about pain, but more with love. Keenan’s book explores her spanking fetish through Shakespearean hallucinations. But love is at the core of her memoir. “Love is the process of falling in love over and over again.” For an episode that discusses bare bottoms and bruises, it’s a beautiful conversation about humanity’s oldest emotion. Also: I read a piece I wrote titled The Specter of Someone Else and try not to vomit.
