My name is Evadne Cavell and I have an embarrassing secret.

The men I encounter aren’t interested in big, beautiful Black women like me—not out in the open anyway. So I go to dark theaters and let anonymous men fondle me in the dark.

Why do I do this?

Because I’m the proverbial “good girl,” the youngest daughter of a prominent family.

Because I teach at a private Denver college with a new administration intent on taking the “liberal” out of liberal arts.

Because I need a way to vent my sexual frustration.

But I have to stay in control. I lost control three years ago and live in fear of being exposed. At the same time, I want to be an object—touched, petted, wanted—desired—but by my rules.

I can look and I can touch, but no names, no eye contact, and no talking.

Then I meet Joshua Delaney, a graphic artist from Texas who has me breaking my rules faster than a tornado leveling a trailer park. Soon I’m doing things I’ve never done before.

Letting myself get manhandled in the dark is not smart or safe, and I’ve been lucky so far. But I don’t think I can keep this going for much longer. I want to live my life without shame but society feels entitled to define me.

I can trust you, right?

I need to tell someone everything, exactly what I think, exactly what I feel—everything I have been going through.

I want to tell you…All About Eva.

About the Author

Jayne Marlowe is a child of the 1970s who remembers life before there was an Internet. As a result, she prefers the retro over the "right now." Born and raised a Southern girl, Jayne loves to read and began writing at a young age because she wanted to read stories where curvy black girls like her were the romantic lead and not simply the ethnic comic sidekick.

She is left handed and very ticklish.
