SIDELIGHTS: Helen Henley told CA: "I was told that women were incapable of writing frankly and honestly about sex. I was told there was no realistic literature in existence on sexual deviation; certainly nothing that could make any claims for honesty. It seemed there was not just a gap but a real hole in the market. I am trying to fill it."
