A Mutual Hunger Fulfilled (excerpt from “Give and Take”) – #Taboo2sday

bloghop_tallAdam and Paige kept their eyes locked on each other the whole time. Paige’s hands roamed along her father’s body, wanting to touch him everywhere all at once, as she bucked her hips up to meet his each and every thrust. Propping himself up on one elbow, Adam’s other hand alternated between touching Paige’s cheek and squeezing her breast.

Suddenly Paige recognized the look of impending orgasm on her father’s face. She had seen it numerous times from making him cum with her hands and her mouth.

“Ohh, yes, Daddy!” she whispered, pure desire dripping from her voice. “Cum inside me! I want to feel you cum inside me!”

Adam lunged forward almost violently, the desire to fill his daughter’s pussy up with his sperm the most desperate desire he ever remembered feeling.

Paige’s pussy hungered for it, gripping at his cock like it was starving for every last drop as she felt him spew the warm wet liquid into her like a volcano.

Brenda’s body arched in furious orgasm as she watched their bodies pound desperately into each other, knowing what Paige was feeling physically, but only able to approximate what she was feeling emotionally. Still, the overwhelming joy of being able to give her daughter something so precious intensified her orgasm to indescribable heights.

Paige cupped her father’s cheeks, drawing his face down to hers and kissed him deeply as she felt his cock continue to twitch inside of her. Adam laid his whole weight on top of her, sliding his arms underneath her shoulders as Paige wrapped her legs around his, both of them holding onto each other like they never wanted to let go.

Brenda gazed upon them, still lightly fingering her pussy, mesmerized by not only their lust and desire for each other, but the deep love they felt for each other and how this was the way they both wanted to express that love. In spite of the envy and jealousy she felt, she knew she made the right decision. She had given her daughter what her own mother selfishly denied her.

Paint-by-number dreams…

I love that Jackson Browne song “The Pretender”! Its poetic description of settling for a hum-drum existence, and the concept of attempting to achieve success through conformity.

That song kept floating through my mind as I read through the insightful article linked below by fellow erotica author Lily Weidner, as she describes in excruciating detail her thoughts and conclusions regarding an experiment she participated in regarding trying to publish through Amazon’s new “KU2” formula.

I would not have the fortitude to participate in such an experimental endeavor, not to mention even having the time. I certainly applaud Lily’s efforts and willingness. In the end, she came to many of the same conclusions I came to on my own in time. The most important one in my opinion being, if in the end you don’t enjoy what you’re doing, what’s really the point?

It’s a very lengthy and extremely detailed article, so I’m not posting it here in its entirety. You’ll need to go to Lily’s website directly to read through the whole thing. But believe me, it’s well worth the trip. :)

Sorry, no sexy images, no fancy formatting in this entry… Just a simple passing along of some words of wisdom.

My Amazon eBook Publishing Experience

“I do not over-intellectualize the production process. I try to keep it simple: Tell the damned story.” —Tom Clancy

Antique Books

When I first started writing back in 2010, short stories were taking off. Sadly, I took a break before Amazon came out with their Kindle Unlimited (KU) program in 2014. What would transpire within those few months changed the viability of shorts within the industry. Coming back from my extended break, I found the market extremely different. To my surprise authors weren’t just turning toward longer works, they were now asking if short stories were even a viable sales option.

Image - 1 Zipper (Horizontal)

The more research I did, in an effort to figure out what happened, I found Amazon the center of great controversy. Some authors blamed Amazon for ruining the short story market even before their recent change to the Kindle Unlimited program started around June 2015. What has transpired between authors since will not fill anyone with hope. Authors have come to take sides on this argument, with many self published authors shoving their ideas onto forcefully onto others.

That’s where things took an interesting turn for me as an author. My own opinion was not met with warm reception. Instead, I met a group of self published authors who felt they knew the market better than some publishers and from whom I met the harshest criticism imaginable. Of course everyone is entitled to their own opinion, but only so long as they do not harm others by voicing it. In this case, I found a few predominate opinions I felt were harmful to new authors trying to find their way in the self publishing industry.

Expanding Thoughts (excerpt from “Lucy”) – #MasturbationMonday

masturbation-monday-badge-smallEventually my thoughts started to expand beyond Mike. I started looking at other boys and trying to imagine them doing what I saw Mike doing. Not so much the boys in my class… It was hard to imagine some of them even having cocks, let alone stroking them off, although I’m sure now that’s what most of them were doing.

I did have a science teacher back then, though, that I had a tremendous crush on. I could easily picture him having a cock, probably even bigger than Mike’s, but he was married so I didn’t figure he would even need to do anything like that.

With a little effort, though, I did manage to conjure up the image of Mr. Martin stroking himself and making his cock shoot out that creamy white stuff while I masturbated in bed one night. That image caused me to have just a tremendous orgasm, the strongest one I’d experienced so far.

For the rest of that week I couldn’t concentrate in his class to save my life. I’d just look at him and those images would just burn through my mind. Luckily he didn’t call on me to answer any questions. I wonder sometimes if he could possibly tell what I was thinking and took pity on me.

tumblr_nwa64m1quy1ujn9dyo1_500Thinking of Mr. Martin made me take my fantasies one step further. Not only did I fantasize about Mr. Martin masturbating, I also started having thoughts about stroking his cock myself, of doing it for him. The first time I thought about actually touching a man’s cock, especially Mr. Martin’s, it shot unbelievable tremors of pleasure rumbling through my body. I orgasmed immediately! Then to my most pleasant surprise, I orgasmed again! Until that time I usually just orgasmed once then went to sleep. It never even occurred to me that I might possibly be able to orgasm again afterwards.

This was like a new toy to me! For the next few nights I’d lay in bed and try to see how many times I could make my body tremble with pleasure like that. The first two or three times I was only able to do it twice, if that, but eventually I discovered how to trigger my thoughts to build my excitement back up, and some nights I would actually orgasm up to five or six times.

Thank you, Mr. Martin… you taught me much more than how to make things ooze out of a test tube!

So, there’s this phenomenon I just recently discovered called a “blog hop.” Basically you write a blog post that follows a certain theme, submit it to the blog hop, and then it gets placed on a list with other bloggers that post the same sort of theme. A few are even set up catering specifically to erotica authors and their readers. It’s mainly done to gain exposure, but it sounds like it could be a lot of fun. :)

masturbation-monday-badge-smallI plan on participating in a couple of these blog hops over the next few weeks. One is called “Masturbation Monday“, run by erotica author Kayla Lords. Basically you post a short story or excerpt from a book that contains a scene of masturbation, or that makes the reader want to masturbate. ;) Many times these are accompanied by an image that fits the scene, or that provides… (ahem) “inspiration”.

bloghop_tallThe other one is called “Taboo Tuesday” where authors can post excerpts from stories of a … you guessed it, “taboo” nature. Of course my main problem here is which one to start with. LOL!

Look for my first entries in these hops within the next couple of days. :)

The Amazon eBook Market


I wonder how much of an ass-reaming I would get if I posted this on the eroticauthors Reddit group. ;) I’m sure the Amazon whores would once again try to ride me out of town.

In any case, if you’re an erotica author, this may be some food for thought from the folks at Lots’s Cave…

For the last year stories have abounded regarding authors getting rich with incomes of ten to a hundred thousand per month by writing short stories. Is this possible? How much can I really make?

Purple Zipper Horizontal

Ever since Amazon changed their Kindle Unlimited program, authors have been trying to gauge the eBook market. Authors, particularly those writing short stories (3,000-5,000 words) have started to wonder if the market will even support their shorts, or if a shift into longer works is necessary to earn an income. Doing some initial research, I found answers couldn’t have been more conflicting.

Usually when conflicting answers exist, one finds in them a majority opinion. With enough backtracking the answer process becomes clear. In this case however, little data could be found with which to form a starting point. What I found is the entire…

Attention To Detail…

be here a whileWell, this is taking a bit longer than I anticipated..

When I first created “The Angel Falls Library Files”, I intended them to be a series of shorts, no longer than ten to fifteen thousand words long. The first four books fit that format rather nicely.

Book five is about to blow that concept right out of the water.

After taking an atrociously long break, I was eager to get back into this story writing thing full force. Not only did I have ideas festering around in my head collecting cobwebs that were anxious to see daylight, I also had new inspiration, and a new partner. I fully intended to have this story done and out by now. I’m so eager to release it that I’m chomping at the bit. But, as with many of my stories, at times it just seems to write itself once I get started. There are nuances and details that refuse to be left out. “Seduction of the Shrew”, as the title implies, is a seduction story. And as such, focuses a bit more on seduction rather than actual sex. (Okay, maybe a lot more in this case.) This story presents an even greater challenge, as it all takes place within a week’s time or so, which is a rather short time for a seduction to culminate to ‘climax’, so to speak, especially when it involves a character who’s stodgy demeanor almost borders on frigidity. Yes, I realize this is fiction, but if there isn’t at least some sense of ‘realism’ behind the fantasy, then what’s the point? It would just end up sounding like some quick little ‘smut’ story written by some horny kid in junior high that can no doubt be found by the thousands on Amazon.

And who really needs more of that? ;)

Not that there isn’t some really hot sex in this story! Believe me, there is. But the “hot sex” is really dependent on the nuances and details of the seduction leading up to it. Book five will no doubt be the longest story in the Angel Falls series to date. Actually, it already is. It may even meet or surpass my full-length stories in word count. But, when a story takes on a life of its own, all you can do is sit back and let it lead, and release it when it’s ready to be released. This story takes place around the holidays. It’s possible it may be the holidays of this year before it’s finally ready to fly.

anticipationHopefully readers of the series will find it worth the wait. I know there are a few out there that are just as anxious to read it as I am to release it. Especially after such a long absence. In the meantime, I have released a handful of excerpts from “Seduction of the Shrew” on my Tumblr blog just to give folks a little ‘taste’. I don’t know if that’s more cruel than kind.. LOL!.. but, you do know how I like to tease. ;)

The Dark and the Wild and the Different

rebel-all-the-wayOne of the reasons I write… and write about taboo topics in particular… is I have a fascination with why people do some of the things they do. (Sometimes the “why” doesn’t even matter.. The fact that they just do them is often reason enough.) In particular, what compels someone to do something.. or at least want to do something.. so bad that they are willing to break down or totally ignore every social barrier in place to prevent it?

In exploring these concepts, I feel the need to do so unfettered. Uncensored. People come up with so many reasons why I shouldn’t write what I write. How refreshing to come across an article which blows the shit out of some of those compelling (and oftentimes not so compelling) arguments.

I submit today a blog entry I found on the site of Go Deeper Press. I haven’t dug very deep into their website yet, but I fully intend to. In the meantime, here are some excellent words on why writers should be free to express themselves as fully as they wish to, and how censorship can be far more dangerous than it is “protective”, and how NO topic or concept should be “off limits” as far as a writer (or anyone else) expressing themselves:

A Trauma Survivor on Why We’re Anti-Censorship

Go Deeper Press Advertisement: Free Your Fantasies

So here’s a thing. We don’t censor our writers. We never have and we never will, and we feel passionately about this.

When we posted our recent submissions guidelines, we received a rush of messages from erotica authors effectively saying, “We’re so glad you guys are open to submissions again! We so appreciate the way you don’t censor us or tell us what we can or can’t write about.”

You can see from our list, and also from our daily erotica at the Deeper Daily, that we do not censor. In fact, we believe that topics that other publishers consider “taboo” can be the very heart and soul of a work. Some of the erotica/literary porn we’ve published that contains non-consensual or “taboo” sex includes Con, Book 1: You Can Play It Safe When You’re Dead(twincest by yours truly), First by Jacob Louder (sex among young people who are “underage”),Femme Fatale (erotica about dangerous women, some of who commit murder), Squeeze Pantsby Dario Dalla Lasta (one story includes sexual force that is as hot as it is terrifying), and Shameless Behavior (erotic stories of overcoming shame, including, for example, piss play), to name but a few. There are plenty of others to come. What’s more, elements of post-sexual non-consent also exist in my novel Cream: An Erotic Romance, in which consent is explored both for the sake of passion and for the sake of safety and healing. To read an amazing post on Cream and its treatment of consent, check out the wonderful Annabeth Leong, author of the powerful Untouched, who, for us, is an ardent partner in the fight against shame.

[bctt tweet=”I was cured by a taboo fantasy during sex, one that Angela and I shared when we were first lovers.”]

As a woman who suffered sexual abuse in my childhood (this, I don’t remember very well) and sexual shaming in a religious cult (which I do remember, vividly), I was cured by a “taboo” fantasy during sex, one that Angela and I shared when we were first lovers. Playing out the fantasy of teacher and child with a lover I deeply trusted cured me in the bedroom. In real life, it would have been an insufferable act, but in fantasy, it was profoundly compassionate, so much so that it healed me and brought me into the light. I was able to heal by transforming trauma into trust and play. Finally, I could stay in my self during sex, without feeling like my body had been chopped from my soul.

That night, I was free as a kite, a moon, a sun. I was liberated and loved. I wept because I feltreal.

I tell you this today to show you why we fight on a daily basis to bring fantasy out of the shadows.

Books like Anais Nin’s Incest (containing details of the erotic affair she had with her father) were also an invaluable part of my healing during the time I suffered from PTSD. Without that book, I might not have had the courage to start leaving my shame behind.

Many other sexual trauma survivors will tell you similar stories. And many will tell you the exact opposite—that they cannot read non-consensual sex, that it is triggering for them. We are alldifferent, all worthy of respect, and this must be acknowledged. (A book I will always be grateful for is The Survivor’s Guide to Sex by Traci Haines. If you are a sexual trauma survivor, I deeply recommend it.) It should also be recognized that many readers who haven’t suffered trauma can find darker fantasies liberating and transformative. So we will never say to you, “This must not be imagined.” We will never say to you, “This must not be art.” And we will always warn you when our erotica becomes “taboo,” so that you can freely decide whether you want to read it, just in case it is triggering for you.

That said, check out this awesome discussion by our friends the Pillow Talk writers on “taboo” topics in erotica.

We’re proud to say that we don’t censor.

And we never will.

Love always,


Just A Short Little Update…

hands 001We couldn’t have asked for a more perfect day for a wedding ceremony! We were able to stand and declared our love and devotion to each other in front of a few close family and friends on an 80 degree fall day in a beautiful park on top of a hill two weeks ago today. In spite of a ‘minor’ little glitch in getting the paperwork taken care of, my Lilly-Rose now has a legal claim to me. :D (Ball and chain not included, but hey, that might be fun too…)

After way too long a time of everything being put on hold, work on “Seduction of the Shrew”, entry number 5 in the Angel Falls Library Files series, is coming along quite nicely. I put down the basic premise, and my Lily-Rose checks the editing and offers suggestions. I love the collaboration!! (Although I do wish she’d contribute a little more to the sex scenes. She does much better at writing sex scenes than I do. LOL!) Now that all the wedding planning and things like that are over with, we’re able to devote a bit more time to our writing endeavors. If these beginnings are any indication, we are going to come up with some really great stuff in the future! As with most of my stories, this one will go in a few directions I’ve never touched on before.Book 5 - psp cover 2-FLRY 500x800

I’ve been spending a bit of time trying to get my new Tumblr blog back up to the following that my old blog had, but it’s been very slow going. Social media is such a funny and fickle thing, but it seemed with my old blog, the more of a following I hadtumblr sidetrack there, the more attention my web page got. I’m hoping this new blog will follow the same pattern. Right now my Reddit page seems to be the most prevalent gateway to my web pages, which is actually a little surprising to me. But, I’ll gladly take what I can get. LOL.

By the way, for those wanting to sample some excerpts from most of my books, there are now a significant number of them posted on my Tumblr page, which you can find by clicking >here<. They are short excerpts combined with images reblogged from other Tumblr users which happen to fit the scene from the story. It’s actually kind of fun going through images and coming across ones which I think, “Hey, this would go real well with [this scene] from [this book]!” LOL. Another way to keep the creative juices flowing. :) if they only knew

Speaking of Tumblr blogs, my Lilly-Rose is now maintaining three of them. If you like eroticism that is a little more on the romantic, sensual, playful, and sometimes even ‘cute’ side, go check out her blogs, Lilly-Rose Young, A Little Space 4 Me, and Elegant Orgasm. Each one has its own “flavor”, reflecting the various sides of her personality.

As you can probably tell, she definitely keeps my life interesting. ;)


A repost – Personal thoughts on “Lucy”

While perusing through posts on my Tumblr dashboard today, I came across a post by fellow taboo erotica author Lily Weidner where she offered a few of her own personal thoughts on her latest release, “Daddy’s Bride”. In my experience, very few authors seem to do this very often, especially in the erotica genre.

I’ve only written a couple of these “author’s perspective” posts myself: One for my ebook “Lucy” and the other for “Sharing Secrets“, which is book 2 of my Angel Falls series. As time goes on I will attempt to write more. In the meantime though, here is a repost of my own personal perspectives on “Lucy”:Lucy psp cover 1 500x800

Personal thoughts on “Lucy” – 1st story from Spinning Heads: Volume Two

lucy thoughts postI definitely had periods where I felt a combination of sadness and frustration while rewriting this story for inclusion into the Spinning Heads series…

Like all of my stories in this anthology, this was written several years ago, back before there was such an irrational “fear” of any sort of portrayal of teenage sexual activity. I mean, there was, but it wasn’t in such epidemic proportions as it is today.

In the original version of this title, Lucy’s story actually started when she was 14. However, due to the fact that most publisher out there now  won’t even dare touch a story like that, basically what I had to do was go through and either eliminate any reference to age, or rewrite it to allude to the fact that these events took place in the latter senior year of high school and the first years of college, giving at least the appearance that this all took place after she came of legal age. What that basically translates to is that I had to “pretend” that anyone under the age of 18 is completely sexless. I think most people would agree that trying to portray a person who didn’t discover his or her sexuality at all until the “magical” age of 18 is absolutely ludicrous to say the least. But, those are the “restrictions” to which I and every single other author in this country must adhere to if there is any chance at all of any publisher or distributor carrying our works.

Can you imagine??? Think about it… Using the restrictions in place today, books like “Summer Of ’42” never would have seen the light of day.

Consider this also… Most biblical scholars agree that the Virgin Mary was around 13-14 years of age when the immaculate conception occurred. Yet I can practically guarantee you that every single major publishing house offers The Bible among their selections! Apparently it’s okay for God to knock up a 14 year old, but not anyone else. And that’s only the tip of the iceberg as far as the Bible goes! There’s more sex and violence in the bible, including rape, incest, and bestiality, than you can shake a pulpit at, yet portraying a 14 year old masturbating in her bed at night is an unbreakable taboo.  Let alone “exploring” her sexuality with another person!

Hopefully I made this story “work” despite all the restrictions that had to be placed on it. But I get so fucking tired of having to deal with all the factions out there trying so hard to “sanitize” this country to the point where we all have to pretend that sex doesn’t exist at all for a person until a certain magical age. Not only is it unrealistic, it is an insult to everyone’s intelligence to try to convince a reader that sexual discovery was practically nonexistent before that particular age.

This is just another glaring example of how “censorship” threatens artistic expression. It also threatens a reader’s ability to choose, as well as insults everyone’s intelligence in the process.

Ownership of our eroticism

computer sex 003Porn… Gotta love it, right?

Well, no, you don’t really “gotta”.. Some people do, and some people don’t. Some people can’t even agree on what “porn” actually is. And really, that’s okay. Like many things, “porn” can simply be a matter of perspective. As human beings we’re entitled to that.

I’ve been playing around with my Tumblr account quite a lot the last few days. Mainly I use my Tumblr page to try to promote my ebooks. but I also like posting and reblogging things that personally appeal to me. Tumblr is a fantastic arena to do that, as it’s extremely unrestrictive compared to most other social media outlets. Plus, being as “anonymous” as it is, people can be more freely “themselves” there. I love that, seeing what people are really like deep down inside, what they keep hidden from most of the world. (Well, mostly I love it. Some of it, well… ehh..) In any case, it’s incredibly easy to find others of like mind on Tumblr, no matter how “perverted” your mind may happen to be.

Finding “porn” of course is incredibly easy.. Finding GOOD porn, well, that’s another story entirely. For me, most porn is like trying to watch a science fiction movie made in the ’50’s.. It’s cheap, it’s cheesy, most often just gratuitous, and totally unbelievable. That doesn’t make ’50’s sci-fi movies “bad”, it just makes them not good for me.

computer sex (2)Mainly what I look for in “porn”.. and most anything else for that matter.. is something that fuels my imagination. Most porn doesn’t do that. Mainly I question why these people seem to enjoy having sex in so many obviously uncomfortable positions, and WHAT the fuck is the enormous appeal of cumming on a woman’s face??? To me it’s rather gross, but obviously most men (and a fair  number of women) find it appealing. That doesn’t make most porn “bad”… It just makes it not good for me.

What burns the shit out of me is people who think ALL porn is “bad”, and want to eliminate all of it. Including the stuff that fuels my imagination. And I have a reeeeaaaal problem with people who want to take away stuff that fuels my imagination. Or anyone’s imagination.

Ultimately that’s what censorship does.. It stifles imagination. It makes people stop asking questions. It encourages conformity, And worst of all, it just makes sex boring. :) (Well, okay, that’s not WORST of all, but hey, it’s right up there..)

Dr. Marty Klein is my fucking hero.. Seriously!! Very few people can so meticulously cut through bullshit like butter. Dr. Klein is among the best of the best at it. His latest article, dealing with why we watch porn, is as usual right on the mark. Here he squashes the arguments against porn like annoying little insects, but more importantly it encourages people to claim ownership of their own eroticism. And don’t let anyone take it away from you!

computer interruption

Why does anyone look at porn?

Why does anyone look at porn?

For tens of millions of American men and women, there’s only one answer: To get more sexually excited. The goal of getting excited, of course, is to enhance the process by which people eventually get not-excited—also called satisfaction.

Lather, rinse, repeat three times per week for 75 years.

How someone feels about that—deliberately doing something to get more aroused—is an excellent predictor of how they will feel about pornography. For those suspicious of sexual arousal, porn is bad. For those who think that tinkering with our own arousal is selfish or creepy, porn is bad.

And for those who think arousal is OK, as long as it’s directly connected to one’s partner’s body, personality or sexual behavior, porn is also bad.

When people want to talk about their disapproval of porn’s mission of increasing excitement, they generally resort to one of the standard criticisms of porn:

* Watching porn is a form of infidelity
* It’s immoral
* It exploits actresses
* It gives consumers wrong/bad ideas about sex
* Consuming porn makes people withdraw from their partners
* It’s secretive, which hurts a relationship
* Consuming porn leads to violence against women
* It suggests novel, even “kinky” sexual activities
* It leads men to demand sexual behaviors from women that women don’t want to do.

As standard as these criticisms are, each has a straightforward response:

* It depends on how you define infidelity; what about lusting after women in the airport, or fantasizing about them while masturbating without porn?

* Some people prefer to measure morality by reference to ethics or how we treat others, rather than by a private erotic choice hurting no one.

* Watching porn exploits actresses to the same extent that watching pro football exploits athletes, who risk their physical safety for our entertainment. “The money they earn isn’t comparable”? So if porn actresses make a fortune (some do), watching porn is OK?

* Most adults watching porn know it depicts fantasy, not a documentary. In every society, in every age, people have held inaccurate or harmful ideas about sex. A lack of real sex education doesn’t help in this regard.

* No one withdraws from a sexual relationship that’s physically and emotionally satisfying, certainly not for the chance to masturbate to a video.

* People only keep their porn watching a secret when their mate demands it—via ultimatums, demands, or other rigidity. And yes, porn watchers could be braver about confronting this—but porn watching doesn’t have to inherently involve secrecy.

* Everyone knows porn watching has gone up, and every law enforcement agency says that the rate of sexual violence has gone down. If anything, there’s a strong argument that porn acts as a safety valve to reduce sexual violence.

* If learning new ways to do things is bad, the most dangerous person in town is Martha Stewart, the queen of reimagining what we can do and how we can do it.

* People have been pressuring each other for various sexual behaviors since the beginning of time. Thirty years ago it was oral sex; before that it was intercourse before marriage; before that it was kisses and embraces during courtship. We should be concerned that there are still people who can’t say “no” firmly enough within a relationship to prevent future invitations.

The deeper issue here is over ownership of our eroticism. Do we still own it when we’re in a relationship, or does the relationship now own it? If we agree to limit our sexual behavior within a relationship (as most people do), does “behavior” include sexual fantasy?

And is it a bad thing to nourish our relationship with our own eroticism?

Anyone who thinks so must also indict industries promoting fashion, perfume, plastic surgery, hairdressing, cars and other large consumer items. Not only are these designed to make us more attractive to others, they are also promoted to make us feel sexier, more glamorous, and more youthful—to affect how we feel about ourselves,  not only how others feel about us.

In a world where we’re all encouraged to increase our self-esteem and sense of empowerment, doesn’t that include our sense of our own sexuality? This is not an abstract thing; increasing our self-esteem and empowerment means, if we wish, increasing our experience of our own eroticism.

Particularly in monogamous relationships, viewing pornography—with or without masturbation—seems a particularly benign and effective way to do that.

Three Cheers for Banned Books!!!

dirty storiesI love writing “dirty” stories.

More importantly, I love writing stories that contain ideas… In this case, the underlying theme in most of my stories (along with lots and lots of “hot sex”!!) is the idea of people being able to enter into whatever types of relationships that work for them and satisfy them. No matter WHAT type of relationship that happens to be!

Most people don’t seem to like that “idea”. They don’t understand it. It scares them. And because of that, they don’t wish me to express that idea. It makes them uncomfortable. To me, that’s what good writers do… They make people “uncomfortable”.

As a proud author of banned books (thanks, Amazon…), I thought I’d pass along some interesting information about other “banned books” and how they got banned, courtesy of the ACLU website:

Introducing – Carnaltopia!!

There’s a new erotica e-book dealer in town… and this one is hot enough to practically melt your computer monitor!!

Carnaltopia features authors and stories that the folks at Carnal Pleasures considers “the best of the best”.. Stories that are creatively imaginative, well-written, and most important of all, hot! HOT!! HOT!!! Most of the stories are ‘taboo’ in nature, although some are not. Just quality works of erotic fiction that will set your imagination soaring, and most likely send your fingers flying. ;)

Becca Sinh - The Highest Bidder

Currently there are only around a dozen or so authors featured on Carnaltopia, but more will be gradually added over time. I am honored beyond words that they asked to have my titles included among this list of distinguished authors, and they have also seen fit to want to include “Pushing Boundaries“, the premiere title by my love, Lilly-Rose Young.

Carnal Pleasures is a wonderful site featuring dozens of authors and hundreds of stories. Many of these you will NOT find on Amazon, or many other sites. If you’re looking for stories and authors that they consider the “cream of the crop” in quality erotic storytelling however, give Carnaltopia a try. :)

Pushing Boundaries by Lilly-Rose Young – Now Available on Carnal Pleasures!

pushing-boundaries-cover-1-500x800-borderedWell, she finally did it.. My partner, my co-author, my co-conspirator, and my soon-to-be-bride finally clicked that little bitty “Submit” button, and voila!!.. She is now an officially PUBLISHED author! :)

Within just a short time after submitting it, “Pushing Boundaries“, the debut story by Lilly-Rose Young, went live on the Carnal Pleasures website. Watching her reaction brought back very fond memories of the first time I ever saw one of my titles appearing on a website. What a thrill to see it all anew again through her beautifully deep and soulful eyes.

“Pushing Boundaries” is a short story which introduces the reader to Mark and Sara, a very loving but very curiously kinky and experimental couple. It attempts to portray the deeply loving intimacy between two people that can only come through deep and honest communication. Communication can sometimes go a little awry, however, and their first foray into pushing their own personal boundaries may have taken a negative turn.

This story exhibits an abundance of loving affection and hot sex between this very happily married couple, but also dabbles more than a little into the taboo, and how it can sometimes test the love between two people, even a love as strong and dedicated as Mark and Sara’s.

peek-bookLilly-Rose is extremely proud of this story, as I believe she well should be ,and she is thrilled to be able to share it with the world. At least two sequels to this story are being rummaged around in our brains, and they will be complete collaborations between Lilly-Rose and myself. But she wanted her first story to be her “solo debut”, and I completely supported and agreed wholeheartedly with that decision. Except for just some minor editing on my part and desigining the cover illustration, this is completely her “baby”. And I couldn’t be more proud!

“Pushing Boundaries” is also currently available on Smashwords, and should be available on other outlets soon as well.

This is sure to be just the first step on a very long and enjoyable journey as a husband-wife erotica writing team. :)

Was it good for you?

sexy reader (33)It seems I’m constantly on the lookout for things that will stimulate my mind. Or that will possibly stimulate the minds of others. (Sometimes this tends to get me in a little bit of trouble.) Well, today I found a little gold nugget poking out of the dirt in the form of an excellent post by Lot’s Cave publisher Pheadrus T. Wolfe, which is presented below. Perusing through various author forums at times, one of the most common questions that comes up (after “Will Amazon ban me for this book?”) is, “How do I be successful as an author?” Lots of people offer lots of advice, but this article really hits it on the head, at least for me. The ultimate answer is, you first have to decide your OWN definition of “success”! Phaedrus’ article presents many forms of criteria to consider, not just one (tons of money!).

Personally, there are actually a number of ways I judge my own “success”… It is, of course, gratifying to receive a check from my publisher every month, no matter how big or small. I’m notified almost immediately by Boruma Publishing and Smashwords whenever someone makes a purchase of my books. It’s always a nice little thrill, even if it happens multiple times in a day. I have also been fortunate enough to receive a handful of very complimentary reviews, which is very rare in this genre, especially considering the taboo subjects I indulge in.

naughtierMore than that, though, I gauge my success in how many imaginations I’ve stimulated… how many minds I’ve opened… how many different ways of thinking were sparked by my words.

Yes, I would like to make money doing this. I know there’s a lot of “free” stuff out there in the genre I write in. Most of it is crap. And even that’s being generous at times. Charging a fee may not get me as many readers.. but knowing that I’m putting a price on my stories forces me to be a better writer. I received a personal note one time from a guy who said his hand was constantly in his pants during every page of reading If The Door Is Open. What higher praise could an erotica writer ask for?

Ultimately, the main criteria for my “success” is, how many orgasms have I caused?

sexy reader 060Anyway, thanks Phaedrus, for hitting the nail so delightfully on the head:

Judging An Author’s Success

In today’s erotic market, it can be tough to measure an author’s individual success. Part of the problem authors face is the question of how to remain motivated to do well. Authors repeatedly pour their heart and soul into their erotic books. Whether the story is short or long, takes a day or a month to write, an author still wants the book to succeed. It’s worth noting that this urge to do well drives every author in every book he or she publishes. An author’s success is not measured overall, but rather on an individual per book basis. The definition of a book’s success, while a personal one, often transfers into a greater overall opinion of the erotic market. Every author views the market differently and therefore measures success differently, various similarities remain standard for the majority of authors.

My Secret Life, a Lot's Cave eBook, Taboo Series

High Sales – The most obvious measure of success for authors is the concept of high sales. This metric poses numerous problems, especially for controversial erotica. Many erotica authors hear grandiose stories of riches and wealth from other authors bragging (sometimes falsely) about their book’s latest success. Claims of making $5,000 dollars in a single month is not unheard of. For an author trying to make a living and barely getting by, this is immensely discouraging. The truth is, many authors would be considered successful just to make a meager living from their royalties. Perceptions do not change easily in authors’ minds however, causing many successful authors to quit early just because they don’t see insane profits as quickly as they’d like.

Reader Feedback – Reader feedback is perhaps a less obvious measure of success which authors rely on heavily. Nothing excites an author more than seeing a positive book review raving about his or her writing skill and efforts. These reviews many times are the only measurement of a reader’s happiness. In the erotic market however, book reviews are rare occurrences, as readers often do not want their name connected permanently with erotica on Internet. Even so, in today’s market, many authors give away free copies of their books by the hundreds just to receive this feedback. The truth is, we live in an age where many reviews are faked, paid for, or insincere. Because of this, many readers have stopped looking at reviews, not to mention even reading them. For erotica authors, reviews should not be a measure of success in any form. On the bright side, a bad review doesn’t make an author’s work bad either, as so many erotica authors find their books under attack by religious zealots.

The Spying Game, a Lot's Cave eBook, written by Kinky Vinyl

Fan Base – Another less obvious measure of success worth noting is the idea of a fan base. Many authors just starting out want to see a fan base, or an instant number of guaranteed sales. While this may actually be a justified measurement of success, this metric is the hardest to judge. Fan bases change depending on time of year, individual financial situations, and book platform availability. It’s worth noting that just because an author sees a disproportionate number of readers to actual sales doesn’t mean those “fans” don’t exist. In actuality, it takes several months, if not years, to build a good steady fan base. While a fan base isn’t a good way to measure success, it can be a rewarding undertaking for authors to consider. Keeping the reader in mind will often turn out to be a better experience for authors.

Whipped Creme, a Lot's Cave eBook, written by Lily Weidner

Getting Discovered –  The worst metric of success in the mind of many authors is a fantasy of “getting discovered.” Fifty Shades of Grey, left many erotic authors with sudden hopes of their book taking off. While the Fifty Shades Trilogy has done enormously well in multiple regards, authors should not use this as a tool of measurement. Many authors have compared their own writing to that book, finding their own better. Authors begin wondering why his or her books haven’t taken off. Getting discovered is a lengthy, painful, and not always beneficial process–much depends on chance. Authors should instead focus on writing their books, enjoying the freedom they have to do so. This is especially true for authors of more controversial works; consider the likelihood of such books taking off in the public mindset. While getting discovered isn’t impossible, it should NEVER be a metric for new authors to gauge success in any form.

Three Men and a Babe, a Lot's Cave eBook, written by Becca Sinh

With so many traps to measure success, accurate judgments of success may seem impossible. Authors will find that multiple ways to judge success do exist, however. These methods will be very individual, but each author should try to be adopt them in some form. Try replacing any of the above traits with the following positive ways to judge success:

Positive Ways To Judge Success

Writing Goals – Every author has things they’d like to work on. Whether it’s about writing better blurbs, or changing the overall length of stories, writing goals can be extremely productive. Setting small goals that enhance the quality of an author’s writing will lead to outside feelings of accomplishment. In time, authors will feel less defensive of their writing opting to actually share selections of their work. Being able to take a step back from your writing will also help the feelings of anxiety and nervousness at publishing a new book. Feeling proud of your work as an author is more important than feeling successful by society’s standards. At the end of the day, an author has to answer to themselves about their writing first. Small writing goals is certainly the way to go. If an author wants to be successful, then keep writing writing writing and do not stop to play with marketing, making book covers, or become distracted by other facets of publishing.

The Girl by the River, a Lot's Cave eBook, written by Amicus

Quarterly Sales – While I mentioned above that high sales rates are a bad measure of success, that doesn’t mean sales are a completely negative measurement tool. Taking a step back, and looking at your personal sales report can be highly productive. Please do not use this on a monthly basis, as some months are not good sale months… ever. The right unit of measurement seems to be somewhere around every four months. A four month’s span seems to be just enough time to find an overall sales pattern. By comparing four months at a time with another 4 month segment, authors can see increases based on the number of new books an author has for sale. Looking at these subtle increases, an author will most likely find only a positive notion of success from these overall spans of time while looking at it month by month doesn’t cut it at all.

Love and Lust, a Lot's Cave eBook, written by Marshall Gibson

Knowledge of the Market – An author hardly ever considers their knowledge of the market as a measure of success. This is one of the biggest mistakes made, especially by authors just starting out. Knowledge of the market seems to correlate to an author’s success. Think about it; the more an author can navigate the market, the more an author knows how to judge their books. Taking into consideration how successfully an author can navigate their potential sales, an author quickly changes their writing. Not always, but usually these changes are for the better. Authors that take time to understand how the market works learns to improve the writing of their blurbs, their story content, and even to set the titles of their book. In order to truly be successful, an author simply must learn how the market works.

Pimp Dino, a Lot's Cave eBook, written by Tani Fredricks

Trademark Writing – Part of understanding the market and improved authorship skills results in trademark writing. This takes a couple different forms, depending on the author. Some authors like their cover to have a certain design quality specific to them. Other authors tend to write only within a certain sub-genre. Being able to lock yourself within a specific sub-genre really allows author success. While some authors hesitate to pick one sub-genre for fear of not appealing to the vast majority of people. successful authors know their audience. Writing for five different sub-genres creates confused readers who will, never really know what they’ll get. Trademarking turns into a positive way to measure success.

Into the Land of Humans, a Lot's Cave eBook, written by Baron LeSade

Fan Outreach – Differing from trying to measure a fan base, an author’s fan outreach doesn’t focus on numbers. Fan outreach is an author’s ability to be found online by their readers. Taking time to utilize social media is the sign of a successful author. Not getting trapped in an endless social media marketing loop authors that have fan outreach know when to quit. Taking time to be searchable, but not overwhelming, successful authors have the ability to self promote. While this may not seem important to success, it is. If an author takes time to look at their appeal to readers, they can gauge some fan feedback. All in all, fan outreach can be good or bad. It can get real bad if an author spends time blogging that would be more productive in getting a new book out.

Complete Anthology, a Lot's Cave eBook, written by Suzie McLean

Taking time to measure success can be painful for authors who don’t know any better. Realizing that some gauging methods are more successful than others, authors keep from getting too discouraged. Judging the various methods for their effectiveness, some authors may find individual ways of feeling successful. So many author experiences are unique, as each genre can be measured differently. Feedback from readers may be more likely for example, or sales higher than in a separate genre. Whatever method an author uses, it’s important to remember everything should be taken with a grain of salt. Feedback won’t always be positive, but that doesn’t mean all books are poorly written. Take time to enjoy being an author, whether or not you feel successful. In any case, for an author to be successful, just keep on writing and do not waste too much time gauging. Write!

I’m Coming Soon!

My first book is almost finished! Is that not what you thought I meant?

I’d like to share a little about me and what brought me to erotica writing, and to Forrest Young.

I married early, and divorced early as well. By the time I was in my mid 20s, I was a single mom of three wonderful kidlets. In my “spare” time (because we all know parents have that), I did what most college kids that age do, I started going to clubs and doing all the fun stuff. I was in heaven. My creativity blossomed and I began writing erotica.keyboard

I never dreamed it would go anywhere. I always thought it was just a wonderful outlet for my imagination and my libido. It also helped me cultivate my ability to type with one hand. I had fun with it. A lot of fun with it.

Over the next twenty years, fun died. My erotica long ago fell by the wayside. I was a dedicated mom and that was my only mission in life. I had given up on everything fun. No imagination. Relationships with men were few and far between. And of course, the only sex was with myself. A large part of who I am was gone. And I thought I was fine with it.

I’m so grateful my eyes were opened.

Thanks to the Internet, I found this man most of you know as Forrest Young. We did the customary exchanging of text messages and emails before we met at a local park. It was very safe, for me. We followed all those Internet dating rules.

Forrest, on the other hand, got a huge surprise. Due to a slight oversight, his pen name jumped out at me the very first time we emailed from our personal email addresses. I don’t know about you, but I *had* to Google him. Wow! I learned a whole lot in a short time. And between you and me, I loved it!

But seriously though, that could have been a disaster for him, right? Or maybe he didn’t need a woman in his life who was opposed to his flow of ideas. I personally believe everything happens for a reason. In this case, it drew us together instantly. Forrest was so relieved when I sent him a sample of my writing. He knew instantly that I was not going to judge him. How can I judge him when I’m delightfully deviant, too?

We enjoyed deep conversations about our pasts, our experiences, our journeys. We talked, and talked, and talked. He turned on my mind and reawakened my curiosity and imagination. The flow of ideas in my head started and I was writing again! I was writing again!! Among other things.

One of Forrest’s first goals was to help me get published. We’re almost there! I’m nervous and scared, but excited and hopeful. How can I not be? But I love to write. It’s part of who I am. He’s helping me remember how to embrace all the wonderful things that are me. I’m so very grateful to have found him.

Together we’re working on several projects. One of which is a wedding. Another is collaboration on erotica writing. Both of them bring us together and help us stay focused on what brought us together, and what will inevitably be a wonderful way to remember why we’re so perfect for each other. Husband and wife, and partners in crime.

Wantonly Humping Legs

Heyy, look at this… TWO POSTS from me in ONE DAY! (If you’re wondering about the title, just keep reading.. It will make sense, I promise, and you will probably chuckle at my creativity. Then again, maybe not…)

computer sex 001A while back a fellow author asked me about the benefits of using social media, and the best ways to go about it. Since then, I’ve been rumbling in my head about putting up a post concerning that, the benefits and pitfalls of various ones, and how to use them to an author’s advantage. Well, just recently I came across an article that actually offered much more sage advice about it than I would be capable of. (And probably with much more flair. I’m kinda jealous about that part.)That article is posted below in its entirety, as well as a link to the original source. 

Social media is a great tool for self-promotion and making your presence known, but let’s face it, it can only do so much. Using social media alone is not going to make you rich by any means. But it is an excellent start, and a place you can direct people to. Even if you have a publisher, self-promotion and an attractive web presence is pretty crucial. I will probably still offer my own thoughts about each type of social media, what’s good and what’s bad about them, and how best to use them in a future post, but for now, here are some excellent words of wisdom concerning that topic from Chuck Wendig on the Terrible Minds website: 


You can sell books using social media.

You also can’t really sell books using social media.

The cat is both dead and alive.

Let me unpack this a little bit.

For quite some time, social media has been promoted by nearly everybody, including publishers, as a Very Good Way to SELL YOUR BOOKS. You have a Certified Platform. It is the place where you express your Authorial Brand. (My platform is cobbled together from the skulls of my enemies, and my brand looks like Calvin peeing on a tiny bigot.) Publishers say: YOU MUST TWEET. YOU MUST FACEYTALK. YOU MUST BLARGH ON THE BLOGS. Not-good publishers take this a step further and basically use an author’s social media presence — meaning, her brand and platform, or her “brandform,” if we’re into making up shitty corporate-speak — to sell the books instead of actually levying their own power as a publisher to do the same. (Note: if this is your publisher’s only marketing plan, please bill them for your time.)

And it has become quite understood across both traditional and indie publishing that This Is Now How You Sell Books. And that’s not entirely inaccurate.

But it is a little bit inaccurate.

You can, indeed, sell books on social media.

You can sell, depending on your outreach, 10s to 100s of copies of your books.

That’s not nothing. Every book sold is a pebble thrown into the water. And each pebble has the potential to make ripples that reach shores you had never previously reached. Word-of-mouth is the truest driver for selling your work, and where once our “circle of trust” in that regard was fairly small (and entirely IRL), it has grown much wider given our online networks. So, selling a book to even a single person has meaning. That person, if they like it, may go on and tell their friends (online and off) about the book. And they may tell their friends, and on and on.

Problem is, this is an effect with diminishing returns. You ping your social network a handful of times and after that, they start to feel besieged by the promotion. Here and there, “Hey, I have a book, and I want to speak earnestly about it?” That can work. But a constant barrage of LOOK BOOK LOOK BOOK HEY HEY HEY I WROTE A BOOK I WROTE A BOOK is you being a dog just wantonly humping legs. Maybe we’re not mad at you about it, but it’s still a little embarrassing for everyone involved. If you’re an author with a book out, it’s expected that you’ll advertise it, talk about it, and keep a little momentum going. But it’s also feared that you’ll become a nuisance with it, performing an action equivalent to hitting people in the throat with the damn thing.

So, to reiterate –

Social media can sell some books.

Publishers, however, don’t want to sell “some” books.

They want to sell all the books.

Selling 10s or 100s of copies is not enough to keep your publisher afloat, and it is not enough to justify your advance or their marketing budget (assuming that budget is more than just a shoebox full of bottlecaps and sadness). It will buy them and you too little whiskey.

No, your publisher wants to sell 1000s of copies.

So, how do you do that?

Mostly? You don’t.

The one aspect in your control here is the writing. You write the best book you can. Always and forever. Is this a guarantor of your success? Ha ha ha, fuck no. But it’s something, and at least you can feel good about the book you wrote. Writing a good book is not a prerequisite toward selling well, but it’s a noble, valuable start. Why, do you want to write a bad book? For shame.

Beyond that? Where do the sales come from?

It’s on your publisher.

The publisher has the means to push that book in ways that are both traditional and innovative — a variety of marketing and advertising efforts across the spectrum. Trade reviews and media attention and placement on tables and all that jazz is by and large up to your publisher and how much cachet and cash they have. Again, these things are not a guarantee for success, but remember how I said each book sold is a pebble thrown? Right, your publisher can throw a catapult full of pebbles. They have gatling guns capable of firing hundreds of pebbles a minute. Meanwhile, you just have your two hands. Your two ink-stained, Dorito-dusted hands.

Now, again, maybe you with your two hands can do better than your publisher.

But it’s less likely. Why is that?

Because success in writing and publisher is very frequently a game of luck.

But it’s not purely random luck — this isn’t fucking Chutes and Ladders, man (by the way, FUCKING CHUTES is probably a porn site so I’m sure I’m going to get some great search term hits from that). This is a luck you can tweak. Luck you can add to. Every pebble thrown is (in RPG terms) a modifier to your Luck score. So when the time comes to roll your Luck, well, you get a shot at a more favorable outcome because of all your modifiers.

(For self-publishers, the same thing applies but with the simple reminder that you are more than an author — you are an author-publisher. That’s why I prefer that term, because now you’re doing double-duty. You still can’t count on PURE SOCIAL MEDIA to sell your book. You gotta get savvy. Creative. And if you can’t do that directly…? Then you hire people who can.)

So, social media sells books.

Just not as many as you want.

And more importantly, not as many as publishers might hope.

Now you’re asking:

What, then, is the missed opportunity? The one mentioned in the post’s title?

Social media is not great for authors selling books.

But it is an excellent way to make and cultivate professional connections — and, dare I say it, friendships. Listen, social media is a fucking gonzo great place to hang out with other writers, editors, artists. It’s an awesome place to meet agents, bloggers, booksellers, librarians, readers. It is a fundamental vortex of book-love. You can meet people telling stories across a wide variety of media: books, comics, movies, games. Just talking to folks — and being the best version of yourself when you do it — is another way to throw pebbles. But what you build here aren’t front-end sales. It’s a kind of personal infrastructure. People are awesome. And people make up the industry in which we hope to work. I don’t mean you should get on social media just as some crass promotional exercise — a way to “get work.” But it is a damn good way to meet like-minded folks and learn things from one another. That has huge professional and personal value.

Worry less about selling books online.

Worry more about being a COOL HUMAN meeting other COOL HUMANS.

That last one will take you far.

Silence When We Need Speech

sexy reader 051The concept of censorship should be an atrocity to any author. But especially to an erotica author.

I’ve been “in hiding” for a while, therefore pretty much out of the loop. Getting back into the loop, haunting old hangouts, has at times been a little disheartening. While it doesn’t seem to be quite as prevalent, one of the burning questions still frequently being asked is, “What will get me banned?”

What a sorry question for an author to ask. What a pathetic issue to constantly keep in the back of your head as you’re sitting there trying to be creative. So nice to know that the Amazonian hoops are still so successfully squashing independent thought and ‘creativity. As big as they are, how can they not know what’s best for us, right.

With that in mind, here is a year-old article, boldly presented by a proud author of banned books:

Down With Censorship! 11 Quotes From Authors About The Tragedy of Book Banning

In honor of Banned Books Week 2014, we wanted to find out how some of history’s most influential thinkers feel about censorship. Scroll down to read their totally on-point comments.

“Censorship is telling a man he can’t have a steak just because a baby can’t chew it.” — Mark Twain

“It’s not just the books under fire now that worry me. It is the books that will never be written. The books that will never be read. And all due to the fear of censorship. As always, young readers will be the real losers.” — Judy Blume

“The crime of book purging is that it involves a rejection of the word. For the word is never absolute truth, but only man’s frail and human effort to approach the truth. To reject the word is to reject the human search. ” — Max Lerner

“If all printers were determined not to print anything till they were sure it would offend nobody, there would be very little printed.” — Benjamin Franklin

“Books won’t stay banned. They won’t burn. Ideas won’t go to jail. In the long run of history, the censor and the inquisitor have always lost.” — Alfred Whitney Griswold

“Yes, books are dangerous. They should be dangerous — they contain ideas.” — Pete Hautman

“Banning books gives us silence when we need speech. It closes our ears when we need to listen. It makes us blind when we need sight.” Steven Chbosky

“If librarianship is the connecting of people to ideas…it is crucial to remember that we must keep and make available, not just good ideas and noble ideas, but bad ideas, silly ideas, and yes, even dangerous or wicked ideas.” — Graceanne A. Decandidio

“The books that the world calls immoral are books that show the world its own shame.” — Oscar Wilde

“There are worse crimes than burning books. One of them is not reading them. ” — Joseph Brodsky

“Books and ideas are the most effective weapons against intolerance and ignorance.” — Lyndon Baines Johnson

Seeding the Brat: Pseudo-incest erotica by K.C. Cave

I am reposting this entry by fellow erotica author and friend K.C.Cave for two reasons: One, we can all use all the help we can get, and I really should be working on more promotion, both for my works and the works of others, and two, this book actually warranted a review from erotica author Sylvia Storm! 

You see, Sylvia Storm, as a general rule, does not review books with any sort of “taboo” theme to them. I did have the pleasure of having a couple of my books reviewed by Ms. Storm. However, although she did offer some complementary praise to me privately when I submitted my story Lucy to her, she refused to review it publicly because of the taboo aspect of it. Apparently this submission by K.C. was exceptional enough for Ms. Storm to forego that personal policy.

So, congratulations, K.C., for not only “stretching your boundaries” a bit with this title, but for also being good enough to cause Sylvia Storm to reconsider her policy and make an exception for you. That’s quite a feat all the way around. :)

E-Read Erotica Reviews: The book finds its voice early, and it feels like comfortable writing. You know it when you reads it, the writer just takes you on a sight-filled trip, doesn’t feel obligated to explain everything, and skips along in time over the most important points until it settles down for the main event. … The sex scenes even stop when they serve their point. Oh my, a writer actually in control of the beast? Very nice work, patience, and control shown here. Give yourself a gold star.

Hannah was wealthy after her rich parents drowned on their swingers cruise. All the money in the world, though, couldn’t do anything about the brat’s raging hormones and her overwhelming urge to procreate.

So the 18-year-old beauty set her sights on Angus, the recent college grad she grew up with. One problem: Hannah’s a virgin. But she learned a lot about the male of the species as she huddled in her secret hiding place and watched the well-endowed Angus pleasure himself.

The sight, sounds and smells of him coming to climax after climax over the summer gave the brat an idea that would right a wrong (Angus was gypped out of his inheritance) and satisfy her lust.

But for the plan to work, Hannah must convince Angus it was his idea to seed the brat. [brat, masturbation, MF erotica, explicit erotica, mutual masturbation, taboo erotica, humorous erotica, virgin]


“Show me your balls.”

Angus cupped his testicles, pulling them up to the base of his dick.

“Stand up. I just can’t figure out how guys walk with all that stuff between their legs.”

“It’s more like in front,” he said, standing.

“Let me see.”

Angus took a few steps, his jeans fell to his ankles and he nearly stumbled. They both laughed, and he kicked off his jeans.

“What’s it feel like? I mean, a hard on?”

“Like a hunk of heavy wood, oak maybe,” he said, hefting his dick. “Just before I come, it’s like a piece of iron pipe, heavy and full.”

“And your balls?”

“Not as sensitive. But I get this dull ache, hard to describe, if I hold off ejaculating. Doesn’t sound good, but it feels, I don’t know, awesome. The ache goes away when I spurt.”

“But you’re not close to coming now, are you?”

“No, but it won’t take much. I’ve never done anything like this with a girl.”

“With a guy?”

“Yeah, when I was younger. Just fooling around.”

Angus sat down, still stroking himself. “Your turn.”

Introducing….. Lilly-Rose Young

sexy reader 037-reversedSomehow I knew…deep down…the moment I met this woman I was going to fall in love with her.

What I didn’t know at the time was just how absolutely perfect she was for me! Gradually and cautiously, I started sharing all my secrets with her, and she shared her secrets with me. One of the delightful discoveries that emerged out of the many intimate talks we shared was that she was a writer also. And a deliciously creative erotica writer at that! As soon as I read the first sample she gave me to read, I knew I wanted her words to touch my pages as much as I wanted her hands touching my body, her lips touching my lips, her… Well, you get the idea. ;)

The first book of mine I gave her to read was “Anna.” After reading that she grew very excited at the thought of us collaborating together. After reading “Lucy,” she was sold on the idea completely! She was a bit hesitant about exploring my more taboo works at first, but once she delved into it a little, not only did she learn to accept it, she grew to love it! Having somewhat of an interest in mild BDSM, she was no stranger to unconventional relationships, but my subject matter took her fascination with kink to a whole new level. play with me daddyA level she grew eager to explore further. After reading the first few entries in my Angel Falls series, she can’t wait to contribute to future additions. I am more than excited also to see the results of our projects, and to give my stories a much needed “woman’s touch”.

One of the first major steps of course was coming up with a pen name she liked. LOL. With that hurdle finally decided on, let me introduce my fans and readers to my new “partner in crime”, Lilly-Rose Young! :) Already she has offered suggestions and made a few corrections to the next installment of my Angel Falls Library series, “Seduction Of The Shrew”. Book 5 - psp cover 2-FLRY 500x800She has also been busy working on combining a couple of her short stories into one, which she wants me to read through and perhaps add a bit more plot to it, and we hope to release it soon as her first solo title. She also has put together her own Tumblr page.

It’s still a gradual and ongoing process. One of the major obstacles to our progress right now seems to be finding the ability to keep our hands off of each other long enough to get our hands on our keyboards. ;) (Well, that and trying to plan a wedding..) But, we are excited, we are eager to move forward, and life is good.

So, on to the next chapter of my life, both personally and professionally. New experiences and exciting changes.

It looks like it’s going to be one hell of a ride….. only just begun

10 Wicked Reasons You Should Be Masturbating More Often


About Me

Alexandra Jamieson is a functional nutrition coach, chef, and mom. She is the co-creator of the Oscar-nominated documentary Super Size Me, and the author of the new “self-health” book Women, Food & Desire. Alex has been seen on Oprah, Martha Stewart Living, CNN, Fox News, USA Today and People Magazine. Alex offers remarkably sane — and tasty — advice on how to detox, live healthfully and feel fantastic. She lives in Brooklyn where she juggles, somewhat gracefully, raising her 8-year-old son, trying new gluten-free recipes, running her company and riding her bicycle to the food co-op.

Masturbation is both a powerful healer and an incredibly uncomfortable topic to talk about.

Yes, everyone masturbates!

And yes, we should also be doing it more.

According to Indiana University’s National Survey Of Sexual Health And Behavior, more than half of American adults report masturbation between one and four times a week.

Masturbation though has developed a bad reputation mainly because religion and culture tell us it’s a sin. As a result, many of us feel at least some trace of shame, guilt, or even fear when practicing this very natural act.

But with all it’s incredible and scientifically proven benefits it’s time to finally embrace masturbation!

10 Good Reasons To Make Masturbation A Habit


#1 It Makes You Relaxed

According to the 2009 University of Michigan study, orgasms cause the body to release dopamine, endorphins and oxytocin (the “love and bonding” hormone).

The boost of these hormones in turn lowers cortisol, a main stress hormone. Chronically elevated cortisol levels lead to inflammation, stress-eating, insomnia, and weight loss resistance.

This means your pleasure-powered workouts will help lead to a toned body.

#2 It Makes You Eat Healthier

Higher levels of oxytocin make us feel happier, which keeps those emotionally triggered food cravings for sugar, cheese, and other “comfort foods” at bay.

Oxytocin levels are usually increased simply through the physical stimulation of the clitoris, vagina, cervix, and breasts.

So, even if you don’t reach climax, you’ll still release this powerful neurotransmitter.

#3 It Improves Sperm Quality

Why? There is less DNA damage and fewer motility problems with fresh sperm.

#4 It Is Physically Healing


The gut and the mind are inextricably linked. In my book Women, Food, and Desire, I tell the story of a client who wasn’t dating, and wasn’t masturbating.

She had been suffering from bloating, gas, and a frustrating “muffin top” that wouldn’t budge for years. I introduced her to a regular self pleasure routine.

After a couple of weeks of regular self-pleasure, she noticed a marked difference in her digestion, and her bloating had reduced greatly.

#5 It Makes You More Self Confident

Masturbating leads to increased self-confidence and a positive upward spiral of self-care.

When you know what you need to bring yourself pleasure and orgasm, you strengthen your emotional intelligence and connection to your body.

Knowing how your body works and what you’re capable of, regardless of your relationship status, helps you make better decisions and create stronger boundaries about dating and mating.

When you can bring yourself physical pleasure, you don’t need someone else to validate that you’re sexy. You know it.

#6 It Makes You Want More Sex

Another study reveals that sexy daydreams release testosterone in women.

This means that when you read i.e. erotic fiction your body will begin anticipating an encounter, your libido will increase and your juices will literally start flowing.

#7 It Makes You Feel Less Pain

Orgasms (and to a lesser extent simple sexual arousal) increase blood flow to both your brain and reproductive organs, which helps soothe menstrual cramps and headaches.

#8 It Is Kind Of Like Meditating


Sexual pleasure is a great way to clear your mind of excessive anxiety. It brings you to the present moment; kind of like meditating!

The physical release triggers stress relief and can be a great way to get in touch with your body (and out of your head).

Being in the moment, and focusing on what feels physically good to you, is a wonderful intentional practice with many benefits.

#9 It Keeps Your Sex Life Alive

Especially if you’re single, or in a long-distance relationship, self-pleasure is a great way to help keep your sexual energy stay alive.

By self-stimulating you’re keeping your reproductive tissues flexible, strong, and healthy. The more solo-sex you have, the more you’ll want sex. This is really helpful for couples that are separated, and for singles looking to keep their sexual energy high.

#10 It Feels Awesome!

Yes it does! .. and we all need more pleasure in our lives, am I right?
