Opera Is Erotic

I came across a won­der­ful arti­cle today from 2005, Who needs this when the clas­sics are already burst­ing with sex?, about what makes clas­si­cal music – and in this case, opera– erotic. It’s a very good read, in spite of the author’s whiny prud­ish­ness that creeps through in places. But it made me think – clas­si­cal music IS very erotic…well, much of it, any­way. It’s erotic in the same under­stated way that 19th cen­tury British lit­er­a­ture is – the sort of well-​behaved veneer that barely con­ceals pas­sions that make our modern-​day sex sym­bols seem a bit over­done and artificial.

All The Hysteria About Female Pleasure

I’ve men­tioned pre­vi­ously my new fas­ci­na­tion with the upcom­ing movie, Hysteria. It debuted this week, I believe, at the Toronto Independent Film Festival, and is cre­at­ing a lot of…yes, buzz…about female sex­u­al­ity, orgasms, and the his­tory of the vibra­tor. You must watch … Continue read­ing

Everyone Loves A Free Ebook, Right?

Especially when…

It’s about a delec­tably sexy incubus,
And his bril­liant and sul­try suc­cubus part­ner,
Who invade the dreams of a not-​so-​innocent English miss,
And turn her into a lit­tle siren,
To seduce the local cler­gy­man,
And have some pretty hot sex them­selves while they’re at it.
Oh, and it’s also lyri­cally writ­ten and has deeper themes of grace, love, and for­give­ness. It’s erotica…with a PLOT, dar­ling. And fully-​developed CHARACTERS.

As well as SEX.

A lot. Of sex.

Beautiful, classy, curl-​the-​toes sexy sex as only the Sorceress of Sex can write it.

What Sex Scenes Taught Me

I don’t advo­cate minors pur­chas­ing or even read­ing my erot­ica, but it would be fool­ish to deny the strong curios­ity teens have about their own devel­op­ing sex­u­al­ity. I dis­cov­ered lit­er­ary sex scenes as a junior high stu­dent, thanks to a stash of mildly … Continue read­ing
