About the book: The Perineum Technique

After meeting on a dating app, JH and Sarah regularly meet via Skype for virtual hookups. JH is slowly consumed by their brief exchanges, and tries to convince Sarah to meet him for dinner. A game of seduction begins that compels JH to face the one sexual challenge that might set things in motion: abstinence. 

A contemporary meditation on seduction and intimacy in our times of hyperconnectivity, The Perineum Technique will be published in March 2019 from Fantagraphics.
