None of us lives in a vacuum. All our experiences, good and bad, make up the fabric of who we are. There are places in the material of our lives that show the wear of hard use, and others that demonstrate the perfection of the weave. But if the warp was laid right, the fabric will be strong and any tears once mended, will be that much stronger. It's the same for characters in a novel.

Discriminating Against Erotica

BY Morgan Doremus, JULY 27, 2010 | PERMALINK

Yesterday iPad had four erotica novellas listed in its top ten selling books including the number one spot Blonde and Wet, the Complete Story by Carl East. Today the iPad list is curiously free of any erotica literature. Coincidence? Probably not.

If Apple purposefully removed these works from its list, it would not be the first time that the company has attempted to ‘clean up’ its content. Back in February, Steve Jobs made the decision to rid the iPhone App Store of all “overtly sexual content.”

While some may argue that it is up to Apple to decide what types of work they promote, many are crying censorship.

While I normally align myself strongly with the "How dare they?!?" side of these types of debate, I must admit I am torn. Business-wise this move makes good sense to Apple. It is a mainstream company that could have its reputation hurt if it becomes known as a popular purveyor of porn (or what some people consider porn). Also from a financial standpoint, it is in Apple’s best interest to take novellas off their top ten list no matter what the genre considering that many of these titles will sell for under a dollar. Hiding the likes of Big Sis, Six Sexy Stories and other short works makes way for more expensive e-books to be sold.

Co-Author Confessions: What It Was Really Like To Write Talk Dirty To Me

BY , JULY 21, 2010 | PERMALINK

Co-authors Inez Kelley and Ginny Glass Struggle with "who plays the man" in their new erotic romance Talk Dirty To Me.

Ginny: Gimme Talk Dirty To Me back, I want Jarod.

Inez: Wait your turn, I have the lube out and he is getting duuuuuuurdy.

Ginny:  It is my turn! Send him to me and go to bed. It’s like what, 2 AM there? Selfish cow.

Inez: Pffft …. btw, Jarod is now allergic to cats.

Ginny:  Okay, that works. I’m switching to Nora for the next section. I edited the last five pages, loved the hand holding bit, very sweet. Also I gave them their first kiss.

Inez: Saw that, nice job on the tenderness but I interrupted it * snicker * You want to write the next phone call?

Ginny:  HELL YEAH! Have you sent him back yet?

Inez: I’m almost done this bit. Keep your shirt on.

Erotica Author Opal Carew Talks Tantra

BY admin, JULY 01, 2010 | PERMALINK
  Erotica Author Opal Carew on the sexual art of Tantra and how it inspired her new novel Bliss.

I write about sex. Hot, steamy, erotic sex. But more than that, I write about people. People who change and grow. People who fall in love and build a future together.

So how do I do that with hot sex scenes? Showing people being together in the most intimate of ways, reveals a lot about them. Their vulnerabilities, their most secret desires, their hopes, their fears. And when I put my heroine in an intimate situation with a man, or men, especially in a situation that pushes her boundaries, then she gets to know a lot about herself. Often she finds out things she doesn’t want to know, or face. But face them she does, and that makes her stronger.
