The book is based on the apocryphal intimate journal of Sir Dick Liebvoil. All entries in Liebvoil’s journal, as the reader will become aware, are using an indecent language. To please a censored mentality, I replaced some “offending” words with courteous ones. I realized that by doing that, the intimacy of the journal was partially wasted.
I am sure that the journal was not meant to be published. In fact, Liebvoil left instructions to his maid, to destroy all of his writings and recordings, in case of his unexpected death. His maid wouldn’t dare to do that, so she passed the decision to dispense of his writings to LIebvoil’s daughter.
There were so many bags to sort out, and then so many legal proceedings to clear out Liebvoil’s live will, that the least Liebvoil’s daughter had in her mind was to get rid of those yellow pads, filled with Liebvoil’s writings.
She always thought that her father’s writings were rotten. She never had any desire to read them. So, she sold the whole bunch of yellow pads on E-bay, for a meagre amount of five hundred dollars. I bought them.
In addition to twenty four yellow pads filled with Liebvoil’s minuscule writings, I was given as a “gift”, more than a dozen tapes of recordings.
His confessions are never shy about stuff that, for my part, I’d avoid talking about with my best friend or make a note in my intimate journal. Though I’d have to say that sometimes he sounds genuine and pure to me. He writes on many occasions that “a fuck is always a pristine fuck – not like what people mistakenly think, that an old fuck meets a new fuck”. So, I read Liebvoil’s dirty entries, and I realized, all of a sudden, that he was practically talking about having a new sex experience with each new woman that came his way.
With this in mind I got a strange impression that his writings were as decent as any other. Besides vulgar commonplaces, the reader would easily discover pure happiness in his “sinful” pleasures, which would be difficult to judge as offensive. One could say that some entries are astonishingly blunt. What would then be the value of writings, about things that people keep locked in their closet, and never bring them to light. Not to say a word about such things, is also not right for an intimate journal.
Using the very words that belonged to beloved Honorable Sir Dick Liebvoil: I realized early in my life that my main interest in life was to love women. I decided to keep a journal with a separate entry for each woman I made love to and also make recordings to remember their voices and their stories. A man goes to bed with a woman and as they make love the whole miraculous process is thrown into secrecy; I asked myself many times: is love just having sex and if it is so why we are not allowed to say it, in factual wording and not be forced to scrutinize the vocabulary and cherry-pick cultured words rather than words we use when engaged in a sexual act?
