Fresh out of the Oxford Revue, John Rayner wants to write the perfect erotic novel. His first attempt, 'Two blondes wearing hats', was critically slammed by all reviewers. Too innovative, too game-changing, ('too many hats' - Daily Mail) John was forced to try again. His follow-up, 'Lots of sex on a mountain (and adjacent)', did no better.

People didnít connect with the realism of his novels. Lines like 'Lolita stood naked in the mirror, admiring her ample bo - wait, that mole wasn't there yesterday' (an excerpt from 'Doctor Big Cock: New Patient on the Ward'), '"Jesus Bernard, not in my eye"' (from 'Sperm in my eye!'), 'Bridget winked seductively at Martin, "I'm absolutely waterlogged down there."'('Rough Stuff 4'), '"Jesus Bernard, not again"' ('Sperm in my eye 2: the other eye'), weren't being received for the masterpieces they clearly were.

John wanted to revolutionise the genre - but he needs your help.

Join John in his first erotic novel masterclass, to raise awareness for his upcoming project - the book that will change erotica forever. With stand-up, sketches and stories, 'Deskchair Burlesque' is a celebration of the awkwardness of the erotic.

John Rayner ('laugh-out-loud... and unexpectedly poignant' Cherwell) has been writing, directing and performing with the Oxford Revue for three years, bringing his trademark awkward charm and 'flair, wit and ability to deliver fast-paced, fully-charged performances' (Cherwell) - last fringe as 1/3 of their stand-up show, Group Work ('best comedy I've seen at the fringe so far' **** EdFringe Review).
