This Month’s Big Sexy Words

October is my favourite month (because spooky season) so I particularly enjoyed putting together these words for the month. I went a bit simpler and less obscure since our September link up was all but empty, in hopes that more of you might enjoy adding some seasonally charged terms into your erotica. There are 3 of each adjectives, nouns and verbs this month, all of which can be creatively added to your sexiest, spookiest stories this month. As always, use the words in whichever form or tense you need to. Enjoy! 

autumnal adjective – having the characteristics of, or occurring during, autumn
Violet’s hair hung like a hank of autumnal branches, scraggly and orange, knotted and damp from the efforts of their  lovemaking.

gourdnoun – a large fleshy fruit with a hard rind
He pawed at himself, nudging the tender gourd between his legs that was quickly growing rigid in his hand.

decoynoun –  a person or device meant as a distraction to hide what an individual or a group might be looking for
Her blood-coloured lips were slick and they caught the candlelight as she licked them, the perfect decoy as she slipped the key into the folds of her robe.

phantasmnoun – a figment of the imagination; an illusion or apparition 
To my body, your were a fading memory, an erotic phantasm determined to keep me in the past.

bedevilverb – to continually torment or harass
The house stood atop the hill, crumbling into the landscape, bedevilled by the ghosts of time and the legacy of the stern Madame who had founded the brothel. 

sinisteradjective – giving the impression that something harmful or evil is happening or will happen
Carson’s smile was almost sinister as he knelt in front of Greg, dragging his fingernails down Greg’s thighs as he swallowed his cock to the hilt.

caterwaulverb – make a shrill howling or wailing noise like that of a cat
Even with her head under a pillow, Leslie could hear their sex sounds, a relentless caterwauling that sounded more like murder than pleasure. 

macabreadjective – disturbing and horrifying because of involvement with or depiction of death
“You want to fuck in a graveyard? That’s a bit macabre, don’t you think?” said Rachel. “Not at all,” grinned Kaylan.
