Johnny Murdoc: Writer | Cerebral + Raunchy


tumblr_le8bklA3y01qadgwco1_500I want to introduce you guys to a new (new for me) author I just found.  His name is Johnny Murdoc.  Murdoc writes erotic fiction and non-fiction. He’s 29 years old (30 this month--Happy Birthday, Johnny!) and lives in St. Louis, MO with his partner of 8 years. His interests include porn, comics, and copyright law. He likes bike rides and sci-fi movies.  All of this makes him sound like my kind of guy, though truth be told, I always found copyright law (any corporate law, for that matter) to be quite boring.



His fiction is included in anthologies from Cleis Press and RavenousRomance.com, including Skater Boys and Best Gay Erotica 2011, and his erotic comic book Crash Course is published by Class Comics. His essays for SexIs span a range of topics from porn to politics. Johnny's latest collection of stories is in his new book Blowjob 3, which you can find by clicking on title of the book.  It contains both erotica and essays (as well as a photography section). It's available in print and as an ebook. He also self-publishes the zine Blowjob.


I’ve read several of his essays for SexIs, and I immediately liked him because not only does he seem to have a level head on his shoulders but is also quite intelligent.  I first came across Johnny’s work with his audio recording of him giving a live reading of a story called the “The Horror in Dunwich Hall.” 



The story is sort of Stephen King meets gay erotica.  It was a fun listen, and Johnny has a great voice.  I thoroughly enjoyed it, so I wrote him an email saying how much I enjoyed his work and what a great voice he had.  He emailed me back to say that he had one more audio version of his stories, a story called “Dicksucker.”  When I went to the link for “Dicksucker” it had a way to embed the story into a website, so I asked Johnny if he would allow me to write a post about him and embed the story for my readers.  He agreed and here you have it below, “Dicksucker” read by Johnny Murdoc:

I hope you enjoyed listening to this as much as I did.  I also hope that you will check out Johnny’s work, not only are his short stories highly erotic and fun to read, but his essays are thought provoking and enjoyable reads as well.  So check him out at:

I do hope that you will check out this blog and his writing.  There is a something there for everyone, whether you are a fan of erotic fiction (which I am, I love reading the blog Horny Fiction) or whether you are a fan of non-fiction and/or political pieces, you should check out Johnny’s work.  I hope that you enjoy it as much as I have.  His blog is a fun read too, and it is “like a box of chocolates. You never know what you're gonna get."

That was one hot story! And you are right; his reading voice is great. I'm looking forward to more on his blog and some ebooks!

Uncutplus, I had hoped other would find it as enjoyable as I did, and I am certainly glad that you liked it. "Cerebral and Raunchy" sum his writing up fairly well, I think. Though even his "raunchy" writing is smartly written, which I particularly liked. Sadly, the first clip, “The Horror in Dunwich Hall” isn't the best quality, but he makes up for it in the way he reads the story and with that voice of his.
