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.

I’ve been following the progress of the upcoming movie, Hysteria, starring Hugh Dancy and Maggie Gyllenhaal, here and here. Today, the Spout blog on IndieBlog Network, posted their review of this movie that details, with great humor, how the vibrator was invented: Continue reading

Everyone Loves A Free Ebook, Right?
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.
Who wouldn’t want a free ebook like that?
So here it is: By Her Own Hand, the first book in the new Order of Lilith series. And I’m offering it to you as a free ebook download through Smashwords – for THREE DAYS.
When I was a pre-adolescent goddess, just learning about sex, I was confused about some of its finer points. The lack of clothing, for example — it did not occur to me that clothing would come off. And penetration was a concept that escaped me entirely. … Continue reading
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
