I wrote about Larry Clark and Philip Roth in The Allure of Nymphets, because both of them are clearly ephebophiles. And it appeared from the exhibit and the documentary that both Clark and Roth have taken advantage of the fact that sex sells. Although, it seems that their works were done out of passion and not out of insincerity.
Philip Roth said something in the documentary that every new writer needs to know, which is that one cannot write out of thin air. One has to take from experiences and observations and embellish them. I was surprised that, like me, Roth discovered that principle on his own and wasn't taught it in school or by another writer.
