This blog isn't about sex. It's about great sex! I set it up because you only live twice, once in your dreams.

This blog is a portal to the wonderful world of web-based erotic writing. It also serves as a filter: finding stories for you to enjoy without worrying. Use both the reviews and the labels to help you identify stories which will suit your tastes. If the idea of ‘oral’ makes your stomach churn, click on ‘romance’ in the label cloud. Use the rating system: from 0 for nonsexual to XXX for eyebrow raising. (Just your eyebrows will do, thank you, sheesh!)

And use the biggest sexual organ in your body: that’s your brain, dumbo! Which bit of you do you think processes the little messages from your nerve endings in a kiss and releases the endorphins that make you go Whoopdidoo! As you read the reviews and choose stories, as you follow up other stories from those outside of this site: Think before you Click. Come Home quickly if you’re not sure about what you find. Some stories out there are far out on the wild side because humans are inventive beings –not always in nice ways.

Remember too that these are fantasy erotic stories and so the sex is always sizzling. In another life, just being close to someone you have always liked is usually enough. They won’t need a 10“ wonger or GG breasts to turn you on.

Take care of your sweet self and enjoy your dreams.

Muse-ings

This is my 99th post! I have been running this blog since July 2012: three years. I first kicked off with a review of my own story As Pleases My General, followed by a boost for my pal Ozzie's fabulous Lusting While Dusting.

I'm going to celebrate with poetry! 

When I started this blog I was riddled with insecurity and lack of confidence. I used to come online, laughing and flirting and pretending to be totally The Thing. The truth was, if I had had a poem dedicated to me back then, I would have run in terror. I wouldn't have understood that I was good enough for such warm appreciation.

It was a long journey for me to gain confidence, to get a better idea of how strong a person I am. If you are someone who thinks you aren't clever or pretty or funny enough, or otherwise an attractive person, this blogpost is for you. I thought that too when I started writing, and now I have got poetry dedicated to me online. If you had told me that would happen when I started with blog review #1, I would have jumped for joy. 


'Smatteroffact (*smugness*) recently two poems were written for me! This one is by my lovely friend HP and is a little spoof on Elizabeth Barrett Browning's Sonnets from the Portuguese #43. That actually is one of my favourite poems, so I am doubly delighted that HP has parodied it for myself. (I probably should explain that my nickname on the writers' board is Duchess, because I use a picture of Duchess the cat from Aristocats as my avatar.)

Duchess:
How do we love thee?

Let me count the ways:

We love thee for thy trenchant humour
That passes all understanding.
We love thee for thy wordage; It passes over my head
At very high speed.
(Feminism?: Wassat ?)
(Deconstruction?: You WHAT?)


We love thee for thy cheeky prose:
And strange translations of foreign poets
read in a breathy English-sounding voice.

Isn't that lovely! (:heart:)


The other poem is by Curl4ever, who has started reviewing on this blog and whose stories on Brawna I reviewed recently. His poem is about women generally and how we have many sides to us. I love how he depicts a tigress strength in Internet Feminist.

I found it hard to understand that I'm a strong sexy internet feminist. Women are not usually encouraged to be such powerful beasts so I felt embarrassed about it and pretended for a long time to be a li'l pussy cat <snerk>. Plus, people were often jealous of me and would try to bully me and make me feel bad about myself and I'm afraid I often believed them. Slowly I came to realise that if people were going to be mean to me, there must be something good about me that they were trying to get at. I built my inner strength and confidence; even when I was going through tough times I was able to remember how many people admire my work. Being online was kinda useful in this regard, as online people write down what they think of you and you can go back and read it again when you are feeling low. I used to smack the noses of trolls online, and then I went and did the same thing to the bullies in real life (with the support of my union, united we stand, kids - don't try this sort of thing on your own at home, LOL).

I love writing this blog. Here's to another 99 posts! I do enjoy being an Internet Feminist; especially now that I hang out with friends who appreciate what I'm doing and cheer me on. I saw one of the real life bullies the other day at a work event. He looked very miserable and snuck off after lunch with his tail between his legs. I stayed on all weekend, having a delicious single malt whisky with one of my pals and going to fun workshops and chatting with my colleagues about our work.

Happy Nearly Hundredth!


I have no idea just how much dedication it takes to run a blog (another one of those things I've got to learn here soon) but I know that with the turns and trials of life to keep one going for long enough to be about to post your centennial post, that has got to have been both a challenge and a labor of love.

Congratulations, lovely.

I am afraid though that I'm going to have to start trolling you from now on ... simply to get to see you in that Troll-smacking outfit more often.

All pointers now pointed, Duchess.
But I think you might have indicated just WHY that parody was written.

Aww, thanks MST! It does take a lot of love and dedication to keep your blog rolling. I am very proud that I have been able to maintain mine all this time.
You must come up (ho ho) and see my troll-smacking outfit.
HP, I think your gem of a poem stands beautifully on its own, although I will explain.
HP had started a sensible thread asking for practical advice on the writers' board at Literotica about how to do a 'How To' piece of writing. I popped in and used it to say: I really love you guys. Just sayin'. Our friend wrote We love you too. 'Now to write a How-To "Let me count the ways"... and HP wrote his wonderful poem.
Things are not always so lovely and chummy on the writers' board! LOL. But people are often very kind on there.
