The book follows Dr Timothy Tuttlesmith’s evolution from inexperienced Oxford graduate to BDSM savvy New Yorker. Online dating is the catalyst of his downfall, as while using an experimental dating profile he makes the surprising discovery that quite a lot of girls want to be tied up and spanked… He also discovers that he quite enjoys tying them up and spanking them. Here Timmy re-tells the comedy highlights of his kinky dating shenanigans, including all the naughty sexy bits, but presented in an honest and non-idealised fashion. He attempts to tackle the myths and stigma that surround the subject and portrays kinky people as what they are; a diverse and interesting mix of perfectly sane individuals (for the most part anyway…)
Timmy is also looking for romantic connections and not just sexcapades with submissive girls who like to be dominated. However, to have any hope of finding love, he must first navigate the complicated politics of New York dating. His stories provide a catalogue of his dating faux-pas, only some of which he can blame on being English. These anecdotes also present snapshots of the various fascinating female characters that he is fortunate enough to encounter along the way. Dating fuels explorations of the weird and wonderful world that is New York; a metropolis that stands as a testament to the power of the American dream. While he investigates the city’s different neighbourhoods he begins to feel at home strolling along NY’s many sidewalks, and in this city the girl of his dreams always seems to hover just around the next corner.
However, as time goes by, our protagonist also experiences some of the emotional pitfalls of modern dating and he begins to fear that the nature of human connection is changing in ways beyond anyone’s control. Strolling amongst the city’s bright lights Timmy finds himself wondering where exactly he is trying to get to on his journey, which has already brought him a very long way from home.

About the Author
Timothy Tuttlesmith was born in 1986 and grew up in the tranquil East Anglian countryside. He was always a solitary child and in secondary school he used to get nausea attacks when talking to girls he liked! He went to Oxford to study the sciences and liked it so much he stayed there to do a PhD. However his romantic life always came second as most of his time was spent collecting data in the lab.
After his PhD though he moved to New York and embarked on a fateful experiment; exploring the world of online dating! In his first book “So… This is Awkward.” Timothy recounts the various dating adventures that befell him during his first year in ‘The City’ and how they changed his perceptions of sexuality and human connection. He talks about his experiences with a frank and shameless honesty in an attempt to bust myths that surround BDSM and also tackle common sexual insecurities. Anecdotes of his dating haps and mishaps combine with his polite English confusion and befuddlement by big city life, which all makes for one truly hilarious read!
