Since that time I have been considering and contemplating it, and with such a complex subject, I am very much looking forward to… Read more →

Why What I Write is Not Erotica

A few weeks ago I submitted my story ‘For a Few Dollars More’ to Ether Books. The story tells of a young prostitute’s interactions with two very different customers, and deals with a very intense non-consensual scenario. Filling out my submissions form I automatically ticked the ‘Erotica’ box. Due to the fact that my story depicts graphic, explicit sexual interaction,… Read more →

Review: ‘Beautiful Losers’ (Remittance Girl)

Being, as Molly Moore put it, “a fully paid up member of the Remittance Girl fan-club” I was excited from the moment I heard that there would be another of her novels in the world come December 2012. But when I linked up the title, ‘Beautiful Losers’, with a series of podcasts I listened to the year before, I have… Read more →

Answer Time: the curious state of submission

There are times when I meet people – generally face-to-face – and the conversation somehow comes round to the fact that I am submissive, and being me, I brush it off casually, without really getting into the ins and outs of how my submission works.

Voice and the Author

After last week’s article on identity and pseudonyms I have been giving a lot of thought to the reasons sex writers so often hide behind fake identities. When it comes to sex bloggers – who I defined as those who write autobiographically about their own sex lives – the reasons are perfectly clear, and given the stigma of writing about… Read more →

The Pseudonym Problem

Saturday 3rd March was a day of realisations and new consciousness; over the course of the twelve hours I spent at Eroticon I suddenly became aware of so many truths and complexities inherent in writing about sex, and most of them were sparked at the Identity, ethics and sex blogging panel. First of all, I had never consciously drawn such… Read more →
