The Secret Language of Desire is an interactive narrative app crafted for iPads, in which twenty seven ultra-short stories merge with interactive elements to create an intimate, surprising and unique storytelling experience for adults. Objects can be touched, triggering animations and sound, and images rubbed off to reveal hidden contents, as you explore a sultry and intriguing secret world.

The Secret Language of Desire has been supported by the Australian Government through the Literature Board of the Australia Council for the Arts, its arts funding and advisory body.

Written and developed by Megan Heyward, with sound design by Michael Finucan, and featuring the lilting saxophone of Martin Kay.

This project includes mature themes.

Ratings and Reviews

Tantalising, truthful and never tame!

Graeme Aitken

This is a highly original and innovative use of an iPad app to construct a narrative that is captivating, intimate, beautifully written, and also extremely arousing. The intimacy of the narrative is established early on and the reader is quickly drawn into the confessions which slowly develop into an erotic reawakening for the main character. Natascha is a vividly drawn creation and the details of her failed marriage and circumstances ring utterly true. The reader can readily empathise and understand how she is drawn into her erotic odyssey - her experiments with internet dating, then onto meeting men in bars, and her increasingly bold sexual liaisons and experiments. The chapters are brief, but beautifully written and compel the reader to read on. But cleverly designed additional elements enhance the narrative - every chapter will have some illustrative detail that can be clicked on which activates an associated sound effect or a visual delight.
This is ground-breaking storytelling - I have never seen such a clever and innovative use of app technology to construct a narrative. But this is also erotic literature of the highest order - tantalising, truthful, and never tame!
