    Smut Marathon Recap

    Well, folks. It’s over. Smut Marathon 2018 has come to a close. I wept and prayed and wrote and deleted. I cursed and celebrated and almost gave up many times. But did I enjoy it? Absolutely. What I loved The prompts: they were creative and became increasingly challenging as the race went on The pace: if you’re nervous about how much or how often you have to write, don’t be, it’s very manageable The support: people retweeting and encouraging votes even after they were eliminated, the unfailing solicitation of votes, the fact that so many people took the time to read and vote. The support was awesome and quite moving.…

    The Source of Control

    Content warning: domestic violence   I was raised in an extremely confused feminist environment. My family is matriarchal on both sides, the women rule the roost. In almost all cases they are more educated and bigger earners than their male partners. Very few have stayed home to raise children, whereas we have several stay at home dads in the group. Words like “babe” and “bitch” were completely off the table, and don’t you dare compliment the way a woman in my family looks, or say that their daughter is cute or pretty if you haven’t yet commented on how smart or accomplished they are. No one changes their last name.…

    I’ll never tire of the depth and breadth of erotica that is produced by this small community, or at least the small faction I know and see. I am continuously moved and humbled by the artistry and sheer vulnerability that is expressed. In fact, that is the theme of the four pieces I’m highlighting here: Vulnerability – a man and the beloved women who beat him, a useful Toy, well used and put away for next time, the vulnerability of being addicted to someone, and lastly, the delicate limbo of faded ritual and the razor’s edge of self preservation. Enjoy these bits of beauty, wrenched and rendered for our pleasure.…

    I read less this week than I would have liked. Honestly, that’s almost always the case but I do need to put aside more time for reading and bookmarking all the great smut that this community churns out. The talent is extraordinary and the variety and quality never ceases to impress and amaze me. This week I want to highlight three excellent posts by three excellent writers. I hope you enjoy them! Three: Martin by KP There are innumerable things that I love about this post, but none so much as the fact that it is the third installment of a very delicious series that masterfully weaves a tale of…

    Fast Love

    The Food For Thought Friday topic this week is Quickies. How fun! Here I answer three questions on getting down and dirty in record time. What are your views on quickies? I love a good quickie. In many ways I find quick, furtive sex and sex acts more fun and more fulfilling than languid hours in bed. There’s lots to be said for lounging naked and relaxed, rolling in and out of lovemaking, the bed sheets becoming more and more entangled, the inevitable deep sighs of contentment when you finally drag yourselves to the shower. That all has a time and place. But there’s nothing like the heart pumping intensity…
