Q & A with Alan Roger Currie The King of Verbal Seduction

aural sex

Dangerous Lee:  Alan, what is the title of your next audiobook and when is it scheduled to be released?

Alan Roger Currie: The title of my third audiobook is Oooooh . . . Say it Again: Mastering the Fine Art of Verbal Seduction and Aural Sex.  It is scheduled to be released on Amazon.com and Audible.com sometime between Monday, February 16, 2015 and Friday, February 20, 2015.

Dangerous Lee:  I did a Q & A with you back in 2012 about the paperback version of this same book, right?

Alan Roger Currie:  Yes, you sure did Dangerous!  And I thank you for that. Actually, the paperback version of Oooooh . . . Say it Again was my best-selling paperback title between January 1, 2012 and December 31, 2014.

My other title, Mode One: Let the Women Know What You’re REALLY Thinking is my best-selling eBook as well as my best-selling audiobook at the moment.

Dangerous Lee: Not looking for credit per se, but didn’t I help motivate you to write that book? 

Alan Roger Currie: (laughs) Yes, you actually did Dangerous, although I later changed the content.

You, along with a handful of other women I know, had suggested to me way back in 2009 or 2010 that I should write a book that chronicled a lot of my hot, kinky phone sex experiences with women. 

But instead of focusing solely and specifically on my past phone sex experiences with women, I ended up writing a book that was about the whole concept of helping men develop strong ‘verbal game’ and verbal seduction skills with women.

Dangerous Lee:  How many women would you estimate that you have had phone sex with?

Alan Roger Currie:  Since 1992, which was probably the first calendar year that I really got into having phone sex with women, up until now I would estimate that I have had phone sex with about 1,700 women.

What is even more interesting, is that a significant percentage of those women have actually paid me money for regular and semi-regular episodes of phone sex.

For a period of time, I actually operated as somewhat of a “Phone Sex Gigolo” for women. Having women pay me for phone sex was almost like a part-time job for me between roughly 2003 and 2009.

verbal seduction

Dangerous Lee: Why do you love phone sex so much? Do you love phone sex more than actual physical intimacy? Or do you love both erotic activities equally?

Alan Roger Currie: I have had phone sex with far more women than I have had physical sex with, but I love actual intercourse and oral sex with women more. 

I started gravitating toward phone sex around the time when NBA basketball legend Earvin ‘Magic’ Johnson announced that he had tested positive for the HIV virus.

After Johnson’s announcement, I became very reluctant to indulge in a high amount of unprotected casual intercourse with women.  I hate condoms.  Absolutely hate them. But I was mature enough to realize that I have to wear them if I am going to engage in short-term non-monogamous intercourse with multiple partners. 

Dangerous Lee:  When did you first earn the nickname, ‘The King of Verbal Seduction?’

Alan Roger Currie:  I’ve been given so many nicknames by women over the years, it’s not even funny. 

Dangerous, even you once referred to me as ‘The King of Seducing Women into Phone Sex.’  A former lover of mine and two of her girlfriends started calling me ‘The King of Verbal Seduction’ back in the 1990s when I was living in Los Angeles.

They were impressed with my ability to seduce women into having sex with me the same day I met them as well as my ability to overcome many women’s negative reactions and harsh criticisms to my bold, straightforward, erotically explicit approach and end up having sex with those same women who had initially behaved as if I was turning them off and had insulted them and offended them. 

In my audiobook, I refer to women of that nature as “Wholesome Pretenders.”  These women will initially have a very adverse and prudish reaction to a man who is attempting to persuade them into engaging in short-term and/or non-monogamous ‘casual’ sex, but eventually, they will give in to that man’s sexual desires and requests.

Dangerous Lee:  Why do you think so many women in society behave like ‘Wholesome Pretenders?’

Alan Roger Currie: Because organized religion and other factions in society have led most women to believe that the only way they will be able to attract a husband or a long-term boyfriend is if they present themselves to men as ‘prudish, monogamy-minded good girls.’ So consequently, many women become sexually duplicitous in their behavior.

Dangerous Lee:  Any advice for freelance writers and self-employed authors?

Alan Roger Currie:  Always keep writing.  Write, write, re-write, and write some more.  I have now been a self-employed, self-sufficient author, public speaker, and professional dating coach for roughly 25 months now.  Write about what you’re truly passionate about.  Don’t wait for opportunities. Create them for yourself.

#WriterWednesday: 6 Books Every Writer Should Have On Their Bookshelf


Every writer knows that reading is essential to good writing. Here are six books that all writers should have on their bookshelves for reference. If you don’t have them all, get them today.

The Writer’s Market

For every freelance writer or write who dreams of getting published one day, The Writer’s Market is an invaluable resource. Every year a new edition of The Writer’s Market is published, and it contains information about almost every single publication that take submissions. Detailed information is given regarding what that publication pays, what type of work it accepts, how to submit, and more. Submissions are organized by genre, and the book also contains helpful information and advice on writing query letters and following up with your submissions.

The Elements of Style

The Elements of Style by William Strunk and E.B. White is a classic book that’s been popular with writers, professors, and editors for decades. It’s a timeless book that gives concise, easy-to-understand advice on writing style and guidelines that work for improving the work of all types of writers. While “style” certainly varies from writer to writer, the “elements of style” in this book are simple rules that work for everyone and truly make for better writing, no matter the genre or personal style of a writer.

The Merriam-Webster Dictionary

A dictionary is essential for all writers, and The Merriam-Webster Dictionary is a solid choice. There are many different dictionary publications, and it really doesn’t matter which one you choose, so long as you have one. The Merriam-Webster Dictionary has been trusted for centuries, and it’s updated every year to reflect changes or new word entries.

The Merriam-Webster Thesaurus

Another bookshelf staple is a thesaurus, and The Merriam-Webster Thesaurus is a popular choice. Once again, there are many different thesaurus publications to choose from; it’s just important that you have one. The Merriam-Webster Thesaurus contains more than 150,000 synonyms and antonyms, and it includes example sentences and brief definitions.

The Associated Press Stylebook

For journalists, The AP Stylebook is a must-have reference tool. All news writers can benefit from this book that helps to clear up just about all of the word usage questions you could ever have. The AP Stylebook contains incredibly useful information and rules on spelling, capitalization, punctuation, proper nouns, number usage, and much more. It’s updated every year to reflect any changes, and the dictionary-style layout makes it easy for you to look up the answer to any question you have while writing.

The Chicago Manual of Style

The Chicago Manual of Style is a book just like The AP Stylebook, but it is intended more for book authors and editors. It contains many more rules and guidelines, so it’s a helpful reference to supplement The AP Stylebook for journalists, too. It’s updated every year, and while there are some conflicts with rules in The AP Stylebook, this is the go-to reference for authors.

Author Byline: Jacob Smith is a teacher and freelance writer.  He enjoys writing and is currently involved is a writing project for nanowrimo.

Productivity Tips for Writers

productivity tips

Aspiring authors have asked me how I found the time to write my book. The easy and short answer is you have to make time.

Getting your book done and published has to become your #1 priority and you have to be willing to make sacrifices.

At the time I was working a day job as well as doing my weekly radio show on Blog Talk Radio. I decided to let the radio show go to focus on writing my book.

In total I would say it took me two years to write and publish my first book, Keep Your Panties Up and Your Skirt Down.

Another method I used to get my book written is quite controversial and many would frown upon it, but hey, it worked for me!

Find out what my main method was via Productivity Tips for Writers at My Ebook Journey.

Pussyvan and 10 Other Words That Are No Longer Used


By Denise Bloom

As the dictionary is now updated every year with new words such as buzzworthy, selfie and cake pop, do you ever wonder what happened to the terms and words that are no longer in common usage?

The next generation might have a language all of their own but inventing new terms and words dates back almost to the invention of language itself. The Second Edition of the Oxford English Dictionary now lists more than 171,476 words including slang terms but this is by no means an exhaustive list.

There are also 47,156 obsolete words listed which is just a waste of a good language! So instead of inventing new words to enter the dictionary, why not pick out some of the slang used generations ago and have a language resurgence?

Obsolete Words from Yesteryear

1. Hugger-Mugger (1530s) Remember when David Cameron coined the phrase hug-a-hoodie? Well this phrase has nothing to do with hoodies or muggers or even hugs but could certainly describe someone like Cameron as it means to act in a secretive manner.

2. Jargogle (1690s) Meaning to confuse and perplex. If the words youngsters are using don’t make much sense to you, you can always bamboozle them with a little street slang of your own; “your language is jargogle to me.”

3. Twattle (1600s) To twattle is to indulge in idle gossip and is related to “prattle” which means to make annoying small talk. Insert either in the following sentence; “stop twattling and get on with some work!”

4. Gadzooks! (1690s) There was a time when swearing was considered the height of bad manners and so all manner of delightful words were ushered in to replace the stronger oaths. Gadzooks would have been used in front of respected company or women when you didn’t want to offend, although we can’t see anyone uttering “gadzooks!” when they stub their toe.

5. Weed (900) Before it became slang for a certain type of drug, weed was the outfit or band you wore during mourning. Now you can educate people as to its proper usage.

6. Lackaday (1685) If you were to express regret, grief or surprise then you might exclaim “Oh lackaday”. It literally means “alack the day”.

7. Snoutfair (1600s) You wouldn’t guess it but this word means someone who is handsome. Seriously.

8. Pussyvan (unknown) Now this is not what you think! A pussyvan is actually a tantrum.

9. Groak (1800s) The practice of a good groak is to watch someone eating whilst hoping they’ll offer you some.

10. Spermologer (unknown) There should be a prize for words which look they mean something completely different! A spermologer is someone who collects trivia – a know-it-all basically.

11. Queer Plungers (1811) This one gets the prize for not only the weirdest word but the weirdest meaning. It’s basically a scoundrel who would throw themselves into a river or lake and then be “rescued” by their accomplice who would take them to a nearby lodging for the recovery of drowned people and get a monetary reward for their effort. These are just some of the most curious obsolete words in the English language. Let’s all make a huge effort to bring them back into the mainstream and jargogle the younger generation!

Alan Roger Currie says – Let Women Know What Your Sexual Desires REALLY Are

Being ‘Mode One’: Let the Women Know What Your Sexual Desires & Interests REALLY Are

Mode One

Author and Professional Dating Coach, Alan Roger Currie, will be releasing the audiobook version of his popular self-help book for men, ‘Mode One: Let the Women Know What You’re REALLY Thinking’.

Men and women can listen to the audiobook for FREE if they sign up for a no-obligation 30-Day Trial Membership with Audible.com, the audiobook division of Amazon.com

Dangerous Lee: What is ‘Mode One’ behavior?

Author Alan Roger Currie: ‘Mode One’ represents a certain style of verbal interpersonal communication. In my book, ‘Mode One: Let the Women Know What You’re REALLY Thinking,’ I discuss what I refer to as the ‘Four Modes of Verbal Communication’ that all single heterosexual men use when conversing with a woman of interest.

Dangerous Lee: Using four or five adjectives, can you briefly describe all four modes?

Author Alan Roger Currie: Mode One – Confident, Upfront, Specific, Honest, Straight-to-the-point; Mode Two – Cautious, Polite, Flattering, Vague, Ambiguous; Mode Three – Dishonest, Disingenuous, Manipulative, Misleading, Timid; Mode Four – Angry, Bitter, Hateful, Misogynistic, Resentful

Dangerous Lee: It seems pretty obvious why a man would choose the ‘Mode One’ communication style over both the ‘Mode Three’ and ‘Mode Four’ communication styles, but what makes ‘Mode One’ style of communication significantly better than a ‘Mode Two’ style? Some people might consider ‘Mode One’ to be too blunt or too forward. Right?

Author Alan Roger Currie: So. Is it ‘too forward’ to tell a waiter or waitress, “I do not want any salt on my potatoes”? What about going up to a gas station attendant and saying, “I want twenty dollars on Pump #7.”? Damn, that is really, really blunt and forward.

mode one

Dangerous Lee: Okay, I get your point (laughs). I have heard you mention on your talk radio show that because of your Mode One communication style, you have had sex with women only a few minutes after meeting them. True?

Author Alan Roger Currie: Yes.

Dangerous Lee: What’s the quickest you have had sex with a woman after first making her acquaintance?

Author Alan Roger Currie: Approximately ten-to-fifteen minutes after we first met.

Dangerous Lee: Really? What is so special about your Mode One style of verbal communication that gets women aroused so quickly?

Author Alan Roger Currie: Being rebellious. This is why many women adore ‘Bad Boy’ types as opposed to ‘Nice Guy’ types. A ‘bad boy’ is one whose behavior represents the attitude of, “I refuse to act the way your mommy and daddy probably told you that ‘polite gentlemen’ should act.

I am going to say what I really want to say in the exact manner that I want to say it.” On the other hand, ‘Nice Guy’ types go out of their way to try to say all of the typical flattering and polite things that they think women want to hear.

The thing is, deep down, both the ‘Bad Boy’ and the ‘Nice Guy’ have the same exact desire to date women and have sex with them. It’s just that Bad Boys are more upfront and straightforward about their desires and interests. Nice Guys feel more compelled to ‘beat-around-the-bush’ because they are too afraid of being labeled a ‘jerk’ or an ‘a**hole.’ Bad Boys don’t care about subjective labels and petty criticisms.

Dangerous Lee: So being Mode One is all about behaving like a ‘Bad Boy?’

Author Alan Roger Currie: Yes . . . and no. I never encourage men to specifically exhibit the behavior of a “jerk” or an “a**hole” with women, but I do tell men to do at least three things that will naturally cause women to perceive them as more of an intriguing ‘Bad Boy’ type than a boring, predictable ‘Nice Guy’ type.

Dangerous Lee: What are those three things?

Author Alan Roger Currie: You’ll have to listen to the audiobook.

Dangerous Lee: So Elliot Rodger, the young guy who killed those people in Santa Barbra, California earlier this year was in a Mode Four state of mind? Correct?

Author Alan Roger Currie: Exactly. Also George Sodini in 2009. My mission is to prevent as many single heterosexual men from transitioning into Mode Three Behavior and Mode Four Behavior. Nothing good comes out of either form of Behavior. Even Mode Two has a lot of negative effects on a man’s psyche in the long run. If nothing else, he becomes too consumed with trying to be the man he believes other people want him to be instead of just being himself.

Dangerous Lee: So I can listen to the audiobook version of ‘Mode One’ for free? How?

Author Alan Roger Currie: Anyone who signs up for a 30-Day Trial Membership with Audible.com can download and listen to the ‘Mode One’ audiobook for free, with no obligation, as long as ‘Mode One’ is the very first book they download from Audible.com. If the person already has a membership with Audible.com, then the offer to download it for free does not apply.


Remember The Time – A True Intimate Look At Sex With Michael Jackson

In the book, Remember The Time – A True Intimate Look At Michael Jackson Through “Letters To Michael”, Theresa Gonsalves gives us private details of her relationship with Michael Jackson that started when they were both sixteen years old. I read this book in a little over 2 hours, not only because I could not put it down, but it is a relatively short book with less than 100 pages.

Michael JacksonTheresa gives us just enough to wet our nosy and kinky whistles by sharing details of the first time she and Michael Jackson made love in the 70’s, during the era he was filming The Wiz, and another encounter they had years later during the 80’s in his car. Unfortunately, she doesn’t go on and on about how big he is or how good he was or what he likes sexually because there are some things a woman has to keep to herself.

It’s my understanding that there is a sect of Michael Jackson fans (I call them Type A fans) that are against this book because Theresa is sharing private details of Michael’s sex life and now that he’s no longer with us he can’t defend himself, as if there’s anything to defend himself from in this case.

All I have to say is that you are jealous. Every Michael Jackson fan that has ever fantasized about him sexually will be jealous after reading this book, but that doesn’t negate the reality of the situation.

As a fan, I appreciate that Theresa decided to share parts of her life with Michael Jackson with us. It’s exciting and fun to learn these type of things about him. It also gives us more pieces to the puzzle of his life. Michael Jackson had many of you fooled or perhaps the media had you convinced that he was homosexual, a pedophile or asexual. I never bought into that mess. I always knew that “angelic” persona was just part of his public image and I also knew that Michael was getting some…from many women.

Look at him dance! Hello!

What I get from this book is that Michael wasn’t whorish and he didn’t like groupies. He was sensitive. He wanted to get to know a woman, build a relationship and then and only then did sex become an option.

Michael Jackson

Theresa and Michael together.

The biggest issue in Michael Jackson’s love life was his father, Joseph Jackson, he was the biggest cock blocker on the planet (when he was around) and he also negatively affected Theresa’s relationship with Michael…and he even put his hands on her. Yes, honey! Using fear and manipulation I believe Joseph kept Michael from building close and long term relationships with many woman. By the time he became old enough, strong enough and dependent enough he was too huge of an enigma to find and keep true love.

Theresa also lets us know that she is indeed the woman who inspired Billie Jean and not for the reason you may think, that it was easy as hell to get access to Michael Jackson before he became The Michael Jackson and that Michael’s relationship with Elizabeth Taylor is not at all what it was presented to be in the media, which shocked the hell outta me. I love this book! I wish I could get all in Theresa’s business and hear more details of their relationship, but I’m sure she’s taking that to the grave.

If you’re a Michael Jackson fan that wants to learn about a side of him that we never hear about, this book should be on your shelf, no question. You will love it! I hope more women who were in Michael’s life start to talk 😉


Michael Jackson

Top Story: Theresa Gonsalves – Shares Making Love to Michael Jackson and How She Inspired “Billie Jean”


How come no women have ever come forward with stories of intimate encounters with Michael Jackson? How come he never dated black or ethnic girls? If you have ever questioned this and meant it in more than a rhetorical and facetious manner and if you have an open mind and can receive credible information to the contrary, than this may be the “Kiss and Tell” story you/we have searched for….and needed.

But we must start at the beginning to get a true understanding. So here is the Michael Jackson “innocent and wholesome” backstory or perhaps folklore is a better word; From his early career he was put off by the images of strippers at a night club where he performed at the tender age of 6. This in tandem with his eye witness accounts of his brothers sexually exploiting fans conflicted with his sensibilities as a Jehovah’s Witness and a sensitive soul with respect for his Mother and sisters, respect that he vicariously extended to all women. As the urban legend goes, this exposure scarred him psychologically, rendering him sexually crippled in arrested development.  His devotion to God dictated he abstain so whether it was sexual repression or a convenient excuse, no one dared question it if God was involved. For a while that gave him a pass. We saw during Off The Wall that he began exuding a soft sensuality but it seemed curiously offset by an aura of innocence, real or contrived. I do want to stress that I do not consider virginity as a lone standing factor in one’s innocence as used in this context. I feel that being idealistic and or naive and free from malicious intent reads as innocence even if you have experience so I find his to be valid relative to most 20 year olds then and now.

However, by the time he hit the stratosphere, a virtual global typhoon, during the Thriller era, his sexuality was under scrutiny and “at his age” it was an expectation that he was “gettin it in”. Religion or not, no one could have that level of self-control is what was often the consensus expressed by critics! With millions of women throughout the world throwing themselves at him, if he was not taking advantage of them then he was not a “real man”…..something had to be wrong with his sexuality. How come no women were talking…still? But the irony here even is that if ladies running to cash-in on the “kiss and tell” tale is even a thought or better still, expectation to the world at large, would Michael not be aware of that? Would someone who was so admittedly shy open himself up to such vulnerability, exploitation and fodder? Should he, the biggest star in the world, not be extremely careful? How could he defend his growing empire and protect his effective wholesome image if he would have spread himself around to the degree demanded? While the mantra of the rock star is “sex, drugs, rock and roll” Michael built his image on being the antithesis of all these. Any shift could prove fatal to his career. The 80’s was a different era where scandal was not celebrated or used as a catalyst.  But what of his desires? He is only human. Was there anyone in his circle he could trust with those needs, those private, intimate moments?

Now let’s backtrack. What if we start to realize that there was a point in his early adulthood, at which his sexuality was not under such scrutiny. After all, there was a time as a young man that he could still go out in public. So could there have been a period where his desires and curiosity intersected causing him to explore his needs during what he nor anyone knew would be his last window of opportunity? This would be the brief period of adulthood before Off The Wall (and that 14 Million Superstardom) where he had the ability and opportunity to enjoy his success, make decisions, trust, still have privacy and some semblance of normalcy….but before Thriller,(megastardom)…before he became THEE Michael Jackson, the all time greatest fodder of rumor and tabloid news, aside from being the all time greatest entertainer. Might there have been some undocumented encounters from his past with ordinary girls who truly cared and did not wish to use or expose him? Imagine such a person or person(s) watching him go into seclusion as his life was no longer his own. Would such a young lady not feel even more determined to protect his privacy even if it occurred in the past? We have to consider that the bigger he and his fixed persona got, the less feasible this scenario seemed and after the accusations, the less credible it seemed. But this was largely due to a calculated decision by Michael and his handlers to present him as virginal and nonthreatening so that he could have a wholesome image that reached the masses in a way no one else ever had. AND IT WORKED!  That is until some opportunists used this to capitalize on such eccentricities, accusations, an assertion from which there seemed no turning back, no image do-overs.  Perception had become reality and the accusation served as the answer to this enigmatic behavior for many. The allegations touched off a series of events that lead to much despair and arguably his death.


Theresa and Michael

During the trial and after his death some women  who had originally respected his privacy decided it was no longer of any use and even damaging to withhold their stories of intimacy with Michael Jackson. Many, most notably the media, dismissed them to push the more salacious and disconcerting angle, any one that supported the accusation. But what makes these women any less credible than a family of proven grifters, convicted criminals? Nothing! The problem is that the women threatened the agenda of the media to make millions from the negative feeding frenzy!

One woman whose name is synonymous to die hard fans with being an early Michael Jackson girlfriend, Theresa Gonsalves, who is ethnic, has recently made it abundantly clear that, point blank, she made love with Michael Jackson as early as the filming of The Wiz. If you are in disbelief or shock, remember the open mind and read on. But the revelation is shocking to fans as well in one regard, which is that in this well-known, true fairytale the two had always denied any physicality. I can recall reading the definitive and controversial biography, “Michael Jackson: The Magic and The Madness” and being intrigued by this fan, Theresa, who touched Michael with her letters so much that she was invited into his world. It was as if his song “Dear Michael” came to life and she certainly has the pictures to corroborate the timeline! In the 1991 book ” Michael Jackson: The Magic and The Madness,” author J. Randy Taraborelli who added credibility by researching and naming all his sources, tells of an encounter where Theresa and Michael were on his bed in his New York Apt poised to kiss when Latoya walked in. That has never been disputed by anyone involved. However, according to the first account given the endeavor ended there, never to be explored again! But why? How is that plausible? Why should we believe that desire subsided? Are we supposed to think that they took it as a sign of divine intervention to warn them of their impending sin? That is idealistic but perhaps it is just that and nothing more. Weakness of the flesh….yatta, yatta, yatta! No religious judgement is implied here. We all fall short of the glory…..

Theresa and Michael had been growing as friends from near and far and through letters and meet ups for 3 years and had to trust and care deeply for each other by now. And they were now consenting adults at 19. So I always found that story of suspended animation in the bedroom to be illogical and a bit of a cliffhanger. There had to be more. Turns out my suspicion was correct! For years Michael and Theresa kept what happened that night and thereafter between them. They were entitled. But now Theresa wants the world to know the passion they shared. It is no surprise that this story is met with opposition and criticism. I feel privileged to have had the insight to recognize there was more all along. That thought occurred to me back in 1991. The fact that she filled in those blanks decades later is very validating. It just rings true. “Remember The Time” boasts a unique approach of allowing us to hear even her thoughts and narrative in letter form as if she is speaking directly to Michael and it proves very affective and touching. But make no mistake, Theresa Gonsalves definitely and very literally opened up her journal to share her actual letters and give the masses a more humanizing and passionate rendition of who Michael was. We have asked for “it.” This Is It! “Remember The Time” is their story….
