Man Moves to Arkansas to Kick Porn Addiction

I’m not sure when this blog turned into the Arkansas edition of Fleshbot, but it’s a holiday week so we’ll take whatever news we can get.

A dedicated Arkansas Project reader sends along a note about a new book, “Saying NO to Naked Women,” a loosely fictionalized chronicle of how author David Yale kicked his addiction to pornography and meaningless sex by moving to a humble shack in backwoods Arkansas, where he can confront his demons. Why Arkansas, you ask? Here’s why:

…we got to Arkansas, and I loved the mountains. A real estate agent said he had just the type of land I wanted: remote – about 30 miles from town, with water on it, wooded but also including a small flat field that would make an excellent vegetable garden – and it was cheap. If memory serves me, I paid $96 down and $48 a month for five years – and then I owned it, free and clear. My total tax bill was $1.80 a year, payable in three equal installments if need be! When I saw the rock-rimmed pool and waterfall, I fell in love with it and wrote a check on the spot.

I’m glad this guy found inner peace and all, but I’m going to be honest with you, looking at that picture, I’m going to go out on a limb and say that coming up with ways to say “no” to naked women is probably the least of his problems. I think a better place to start might be by kicking his addiction to wearing ties with short sleeve shirts.

    Funny that you mentioned his attire. When I saw that picture I wondered if he managed an Auto Zone and thought someone needs to help him overcome his “addiction” to short sleeve shirts.

    I am somewhat partial to my porn “addiction”.

    I think he rides a bike door to door and goes to church with Mitt Romney.

    $96 down and $48 a month? When did he move here? After the war? I mean the Great War (WWI). Did they even have porn back then? Were there sheep in these mountains? Or did he just quit cold turkey? We really need David to spend more time on this story like he did on the Mickey D’s cell phone porn story.

    Anyone read “Suttree”? If so, you know why he wants a vegetable garden.

    Rex,
    I haven’t read “Suttree” but am currently on a second reading of “Blood Meridian.” Knowing McCarthy, I’m not sure if I want to know what he wants that vegetable garden for.
