Müllcontainerotica: Wie schmutzig sind Sie?

Hello, my German friends! I have a secret shame to share with you. It's called the Beige Bar of Shame.

When you write and publish an eBook on, you receive a report that tallies your monthly sales. A beige bar appears when you've made ZERO sales for one of the three sites.

It's a very sad beige bar. It says "There are no sales to report during this period."

It is a Beige Bar of Shame, or BBoS. My secret shame.

Meine freunden. Ich spreche ein bission Deutsche. Bitte, bitte, kaufen mein bucher.

See? I did that WITHOUT Google translate. Can you believe it? I'm so cultured. Thomas Mann would be impressed, no?

So far, not ONE GERMAN has bought a copy of Dumpsterotica: How Dirty Are You? Yet I've heard that Germans can be pretty...quirky. Kinky. Dirty, even.

So where are you? Prove yourselves!

Dumpsterotica is multilingual. Yes, it involves many, many tongues. :P :P :P

So check it out! Müllcontainerotica: Wie schmutzig sind Sie?

Dumpster Diving. Literally.

Not only do people have sex in them, but some people convert dumpsters into self-contained swimming pools. The New York Times covered the dumpster pool phenomenon. Urban renewal at its finest (and coolest).

But Enough About You

So here's a little about me:

Allie Beck's passion is writing. She knew she wanted to be a writer when she was in second grade and published a poem in her elementary school newsletter titled: “Kierkegaard's Revenge: Reflections of Nietzsche in Barth's Work.” She came up with the idea for Dumpsterotica after watching two skunks eating a John Edwards campaign poster out of a garbage can. Beck lives in a New England town known as a refugee point for accused witches and in her spare time sells Baby Jesus Butt Plugs to raise money for The Westboro Baptist Church. She does not own an electric toothbrush of any kind.
