According to his Twitter profile, Dr. Chuck Tingle is an erotic author and Tae Kwon Do grandmaster. He has a PhD from DeVry University in holistic massage.

He is also a prolific producer of self-published erotica on Amazon, notable for the recurring themes gay sex with dinosaurs , unicorns, surprisingly animate objects or even the protagonist's own ass.

Now, for the first time, we have Chuck Tingle talking about Chuck Tingle in his own words – if they are his own words. If he actually exists and isn't just a stock photo with a twitter account and a boundless erotic imagination.

"Just when Kent is certain that he’ll never find the best of both worlds, he meets Channing, a living gay dress who is famous online for appearing black and blue to some, and gold and white to others. It’s not long before Channing shows Kent that it’s all about perspective, in a hardcore gay love affair that will reveal once and for all just what color the dress really is."

I thought grandmasters were in chess, rap, or mystery writing, not Tae Kwon Do

Basically Donny’s boss, Tyson Rex, pulls out a contract that will allow the partners at the firm to “run a T-Rex gangbang train on Donny Sullivan’s gay human ass for the sum of ten million dollars even”

This needs J. Walter Weatherman to remind people why you should always read the contract.

I'm sorry, Chuck Tingle is no Max Wood. Chuck could never hope to even approach the awesomeness that is Wood's "Cheesy Puff Came to Life And Pimped My Gay Ass!" [NSFW?] or even "Probed Hard on The Planet of Gay Space Raptors" [NSFW]. Recently I have developed a bit of a hobby posting bizarre self-published erotica covers to Facebook.

And I thought DeVry didn't offer Ph Ds, even in "holistic massage." Still pretty sure they don't, actually.

My latest story is called Bigfoot Sommelier Butt Tasting and the idea came from a wine shop in Billings. big man in there showing everyone bottles got me laughing and suddenly i felt a tingle coming on.

Wow. This is really interesting.

I'm serious, there's something really interesting about his writing. It is interesting in the way that the ramblings of mentally ill people can be interesting, the way their connections intrigue us because they are at a slight remove from what normal people would connect.

There's something about the way he says "and suddenly I felt a tingle coming on" that is amusing.

I'm sorry but I can't leave this thread without at least mentioning a love story so fresh, so bold, so...something that I have to share it. It's the tale of young mother-to-be who finds out her wireless router is not only sentient but also a billionaire with a shaving fetish. I leave you with: Shaved by Wireless Internet (billionaire).

I am sad that nobody yet has mentioned Dr. Tingle's most thoroughly proofread work, I'm Gay For My Living Billionaire Jet Plane.

The reviews are in:

I am, as always, utterly amazed at Mr. Tingle's... unique grasp of anatomy and physics. And complete lack of lube.

This is everything you could want from a gay billionaire jet plane lover.

Bigfoot Sommelier Butt Tasting

Got kind of a Kool Keith/Wesley Willis situation there that I'm enjoying.

The stock photo makes him look like a cross between Andy Samberg and Scott Thompson. I can imagine those two teaming up to write these — Laser Cats meets Buddy Cole.

Divine_Wino: "Got kind of a Kool Keith/Wesley Willis situation there that I'm enjoying."

Me too, but I'm leery of it too for the same reason, Willis was schizophrenic and Kool Keith has apparently also had his share of mental problems. With Kool Keith, it's not so much a problem for me, because I genuinely enjoy his art, but in this case, and that of Wesley Willis, I'm a bit uncomfortable and wondering if I'm not just laughing at people with real issues.

Chuck Tingle, if that is his real name, has 25 books out so far. If he's making ten bucks a day off of each of them, and that's a ludicrously conservative estimate, he's pulling in ninety grand a year before taxes.

That's not mental illness.

Love is real.

Everything about this screams irony. Chuck Tingle is some knowing goofball having fun. Which makes it significantly less appealing.

Whether this is ironic or not it is delightful.

I don't get a Wesley Willis vibe from this at all; it feels much too crafted and deliberate. Anyone who writes a book called Pounded In The Butt By My Book "Pounded In The Butt By My Own Butt" clearly knows what they're doing. They may not have graduated middle school yet, but they know what they're doing.

y'all just wrecked my amazon history. thanks.

1) When I first saw these I HAD to look them up and was sooooooo curious I wanted to buy one so "curiosity" battled it out with "amazon history". Curiosity won, and the second best thing about it was my husband's scream afterwards when he loaded our Amazon account webpage and saw the RECOMMENDED FOR YOU.

2) After that, the next time I saw my mom I asked her if she would like to read some erotica by a (relatively) local author and she said yes. She screamed when she saw the title, but she read the whole thing. Then we had a conversation like this:

Mom: This guy is really from Billings? Our Billings. Billings, Montana.
Me: I think so.
Mom: He advertises he's from Billings?
Me: Yep.
Mom: And nobody's, you know, found him and beat the shit out of him?
Me: Nope.
Mom: . . . I'm really worried somebody is going to find him and pound his ass.
Me: *fleet of giggles*
Mom: What?

I'm sorry, Chuck Tingle is no Max Wood.

Are you completely sure about that? There are certain subtle shared qualities that make me wonder whether the same deft hand is at work.
