Come and join us for Erotic World Book Day!

by Anna on February 26, 2015

erotic booksI was sweet 16, never been kissed, and nervously pushing open the door to Grass Roots Books in Manchester city centre. A year later I was repeating this move at Sisterwrite in Islington. Fast forward another three years and it was West and Wilde Bookshop in Edinburgh.

Those early, formative years are bookmarked in my memory by the places that provided me with my teenage drug of choice: reading.

I bought Spare Rib and Shocking Pink. I sought out publications from the Women’s Press, Virago, and other small independents. I read lesbian romances, dykey detective stories, and classics like The Well of Loneliness. Then, after my first kiss, after my first forays into the world of sex, as I outgrew the posters of kd lang on my walls… I discovered erotica!

I jumped right in at the deep end with BDSM writing by Pat (now Patrick) Califia. Those stories are still vivid in my mind, even after over two decades.

I read more. And then began to write my own…

Writing erotica allows me to explore and express my desires and curiosities. It turns me on, and I love the thought of it turning on my readers too, and helping them to explore more of their sexual selves. I can’t imagine my life without it.

So it is with great pleasure and much excitement that I invite you to join me for

My Bloody Valentine

“It’s going to be messy.” You nod sagely and hand me one of the pristine towels from the hotel bathroom. “No, I mean, really messy.” You gaze at me unblinking for a moment. “That’s why I’m here.” I fold the towel in half and then in half again and raise my hips. There is a […]

A Kiss from You

I have imagined your hands in such great detail. I’ve dreamed of your hands stroking and smoothing my anticipatory skin. The slight drag where your calloused pads catch, reminding me that you are more used to working with hard, inanimate objects than with sensitive, malleable flesh. I’ve pictured the shape of your fingers intertwined with […]

It’s not about the perfect ending

The fantasy had been running through my head all day like a buzzing film projection on a loop. The images were smoked and fuzzy around the edges and the sound dipped in and out depending on where I was and who I was with. Every so often, in the moments when I found myself alone, […]

You don’t have to try to be sexy

Trying to be sexy doesn’t work.   As soon as we ‘try to be sexy’ we lose connection to what really makes each of us sparkle. We adopt clothing, positions, attitudes, language (and more) that reflects something generically believed to constitute ‘sexy’ but that – ultimately – is a mask.   It’s not that those […]

Bad behaviour?

The warm summer in the UK has been a bumper year for wildlife: rodents, birds, and butterflies have all done well. My cat has been in her element. Whereas she usually averages two or three causalities a year, in the last few weeks we’ve had an almost daily offering. The patch of ground beside a […]

Let me hear your body talk

The knuckles on my right hand are bruised and aching. My shoulder hurts too. But then, what can I expect after throwing punch after punch, directing all my strength and power into an unaccustomed fist? Today I feel solid and tired. Body stiff. Wanting to curl up and sleep. A few days earlier I’d been […]

Sex, fire, and freedom… oh my!

At the grand age of 70, Dossie Easton – a radical, sexual pioneer who has spent the last 50 years exploring and sharing her experiences and thoughts about sexuality, BDSM, conscious kink, polyamory, and more – told me   “I will never explore all there is to explore in sexuality – there’s not enough time […]
