State of Fear

I very rarely post political stuff on this site, but I’m breaking my rule. We are being steadily acclimatised to live in a state of constant fear. We are being trained to it by the media who profits from it, from the political elites who use it to manipulate us, by a financial system that…

The Unsightly Eroticism of Trauma: A Review of Constraint

It would be so much easier for the cause of social justice if our erotic fantasies would fall in line with progressive, feminist doctrine; the uncomfortable truth is that they often don’t. There are plenty of women and men who live with the uncomfortable inner turmoil of acknowledging that, while passionate and active supporters of…

WIWIWYG (What I Write Is What You Get)

About five times a year, I receive either comments or emails asking me why I don’t write erotic fiction on a slew of topics: “why don’t you write about wife-swapping, cougars, cock and ball torture, shoe fetishism, choking, violet wands, water-sports…?” While I realize that most of the world has come to view erotic fiction…

Selfish Flesh

I just read a most interesting set of blog posts over on Molly and Michael’s blog – on reactions to partners masturbating. I’d ask you to read both posts first. Molly’s is “How I feel When I Am Not Used” and Michael’s is “It’s My Penis and I’ll Wank If I Want To.” The discussion…

The End of the Affair: Erotic hatred in ‘The Best of Enemies’

Having been liberal on a cellular level all my life, I vowed that I would never give aid or comfort – specifically my sexual favours – to someone holding politically conservative opinions. The one exception to that was William F. Buckley; I always found both his mannerisms and his intellect extremely seductive, even as disagreed…

Advent

Immanence hissed in her skull. Damaris had overfilled the afternoon with tasks, determined not spend it in a state of anticipation… This story is going to be featured as part of Tamsin Flower’s Superotica Advent Calendar 2015 Series. Why not visit her site and read all of them?

Private Lives and the Digital Panopticon

In a recent essay on Britain’s “Snooper’s Charter” and the state’s right to intrude in the name of keeping us safe, Simon Jenkins wrote this: “Confidentiality in human relations is integral to personal freedom.” It’s just sitting there, at the end of a paragraph, like a throwaway sentence, but there’s nothing throwaway about it. It’s…

Libidinous Zombie: The delicious marriage between horror and eroticism #LZ #8

The delightful Rose & Dayv Caraway are the people behind The “Kiss Me Quick’s” Erotica Podcast and “The Sexy Librarian’s Blog-cast”. This Halloween, they’re producing an erotic horror anthology called Libidinous Zombie. 8 writers, each offering an exploration of the intersection between eroticism and horror. The collection features work by Allen Dusk Jade A. Waters…

The Last Cigarette

I thought long and hard about where to put this post. Normally I’d put any post that wasn’t either a piece of creative writing, or a blog post on some subject aligned with writing practice on my Order of Turbulence blog, but it doesn’t get nearly as much traffic as this one gets. And this,…
