Memoir 'Laura Meets Jeffrey' Reveals Real BDSM Relationship

NEW YORK — “Laura Meets Jeffrey: Both Sides Of An Erotic Memoir” is now available from New Blue Books in hardcover, paperback and eBook.

Co-authored by Jeffrey Michelson and Laura Bradley, “Laura Meets Jeffrey” is described as a BDSM erotic cyclone/love story told in explicit detail of the master/slave relationship.

"I was the horniest man I ever met and Laura was my wet dream come true," Michelson said.

“She wasn’t just gorgeous, she was also hornier than me. I was naturally dominant and Laura was experimenting with her submissive side, so it didn’t take much for us to slide deep into S&M."

Michelson created the explicit-sex magazine Puritan and designed advertising for The Beatles’ Apple Records for almost four years. He also oversaw production of record jackets for John Lennon, The Rolling Stones and the movie El Topo.

Bradley said, “I don’t think that I ever asked Jeffrey to spank me the first time. I’m not graphic like that. He just knew. He intuited it. He probably gave a little and then I wanted more. I definitely liked the real thing. It had to be real. It couldn’t just be patting — a patty-pat. I definitely wanted it hard.

“Whipping elevates sensation,” Laura said. “It magnified everything  but that’s an understatement; it brought my whole body to this incredibly intense feeling place ... the whipping made my orgasms bigger and better. It made them beyond what I ever imagined an orgasm could be. It’s like orgasm times orgasm.”

Woven through the story of “Laura Meets Jeffrey” are numerous side trips through pop culture from 1971 to 1981.

Together they join the camera crew recording Steve and Maureen Van Zandt’s wedding and work with Bruce Springsteen and Little Richard.

The book also includes excerpts from their interviews with Norman Mailer and Timothy Leary.

Legs McNeil, author and former editor of Spin Magazine, writes in the introduction, “Be warned: This is a dirty book, an odd romantic S&M love story bathed in bodily fluids. And be invited: This is one of the best-written nonfiction works I’ve ever read.”

"'There was that brief party of sexual liberation, between The Pill and AIDS when living the way Laura and I did wouldn’t necessarily kill you," Michelson said. "It was an exciting time, a great ride, and I don’t know if such freedom will ever come around again.”

“Laura Meets Jeffrey,” is available, through Inscribe/Digital in all eBook formats wherever eBooks are sold, and in Trade Paperback from Amazon.com, Barnesandnoble.com and LauraMeetsJeffrey.com.
