Chimrenga’s new Power Money Sex (PMS) Reader is an online journal, blog and research space that embodies and reflects the interwoven relationship between power, money and sex, and its impact on the complex every day.
Featuring multimedia and text works by contributors from across the pan African world, The PMS Reader highlights the currents and transactions between the physical and the metaphysical, the lustful and the learned, the sensual and confessional and all matters philosophical, sociological and political.
Features include Kola Boof’s heretical tweet verse, Parselelo Kantai’s sadistic fiction, Zackie Achmat’s moffie memoires, Riason Naidoo’s pickled money order, Yemisi Ogbe’s naughty Nollywood kisses, Neo Muyanga’s ‘Sex For Money No Power’ Mixtape and Aryan Kaganof’s wry, deceptively wise new cinematic satire.
Also watch out for Jacob Dlamini on rats, Sandile Dikeni on shoes, Tsitsi Dangarembga on creativity and cannibalism, the Comaroffs on capitalism, Achille Mbembe on the autocrat, Okello Sam on relaxing, DJ Andy Williams on phenomenal women and FOKN Bois on Islamic girls.
Still to come: intimations and intimacies, gestures and jests, lurid lines and luring stanzas by Nick Muwalko, Dominique Malaquais, Kai Friese, Paula Akugizibwe, Binyavanga Wainaina, Rustum Kozain, Taiye Selasi, Zebulon Dread, Chief Boima, Femi Kuti Annie Paul, Djo Tunda Wa Munga, Jean-Pierre Bekolo, Keleketla Sound Lab and many, many more.
Visitors to the website are invited to contribute by posting their wildlife wants, secret needs, neediest secrets, porn poems, flash fictions, pen pal letters and other sweet, sweaty, comical and contortionist stuff in the ‘Lonely Hearts’ forum. No unreasonable offer will be turned down.
