Erotic Lure Newsletter: July 2013

From the Erotica Readers & Writers Association
By Lisabet Sarai

Dear Patriotic Perverts,

Welcome to the July issue of Erotic Lure, your guide to all the latest lurid and lusty delights at the Erotica Readers & Writers Association website. I hope you’ll excuse the tardiness of this month’s Lure. I was – um – tied up until today (seeing stars and wearing stripes, you might say). I’ll try to make up for the delay by giving you an extra juicy tour of our midsummer edition. Plus a bonus slice of watermelon!

The Erotica Gallery this month offers an explosion of sparkling fiction, with eleven flashers, four quickies, four full length stories and a longer piece the author calls a “novelette”. Many of the offerings were triggered by our latest writing prompt, “Reunions”, but our creative authors have taken that notion in unexpected directions. We’ve got passionate poetry, too, including a trio of “tritinas”, an especially challenging verse form.

Declare your independence from stereotyped smut:

Heading for the beach this summer? Fill your bag or your digital device with sexy reads from our Books for Sensual Readers section. With all these delicious titles clamoring “Read me. Read ME!” I scarcely know where to start. Like short stories? Pick up Maxim Jakubowski’s MAMMOTH BOOK OF QUICK AND DIRTY EROTICA, Alison Tyler’s SUDDEN SEX, or for something a bit different, the Circlet Press collection WHAT HAPPENS AT THE TAVERN STAYS AT THE TAVERN, epic fantasy quest erotica edited by Jennifer Levine. Do you prefer longer, more – um – meaty tales? Check out Lisette Ashton’s DRAGON DESIRE, about the ultimate aphrodisiac, or try my own over-the-top steampunk opus RAJASTHANI MOON. If you’re hooked on happy endings, we’ve got sizzling erotic romance: Christina Lauren’s BEAUTIFUL BASTARD, Portia da Costa’s DIAMOND IN THE ROUGH, or Senta Holland’s romantic BDSM odyssey OUT OF THE SHADOWS. For fans of homoerotic fiction, it would be hard to find something more seasonally appropriate than Neil Plakcy’s anthology BEACH BUMS. And Sacchi Green serves up steamy true lesbian sex stories by both veteran and new authors in WILD GIRLS, WILD NIGHTS. Browse our conveniently categorized shelves for many more fabulous books, including classic erotica and sexy self-help titles.

If you see anything you want (and if you don’t, you probably shouldn’t be reading this newsletter!), please use our affiliate links to buy. Your purchases help keep ERWA alive and sizzling.

Satisfy your literary lusts:

Where do all these great books come from? In many cases, straight from the pens of ERWA subscribers. Over the years, dozens of acclaimed erotica authors have gotten their start in the ERWA Writers list and Storytime on-line critique group. My own very first erotic short story initially saw the light on ERWA.

If you’re an author trying to share your erotic visions with the world, visit our Authors Resources page for a comprehensive, constantly updated listing of submission calls and publishers’ guidelines. Recent calls include “Me and My Boi” from award-winning editor Sacchi Green; “Men of the Manor”, homoerotic upstairs/downstairs tales to be edited by Rob Rosen; “Best Men’s Erotica 2014” from the brave new imprint Burning Books Press; and “Coming Together for Equality”, a charity anthology on the theme of bullying edited by Beth Wylde. You’ll also find general submission information for roughly four dozen publishers interested in erotic content – with the number growing monthly.

Erotica is hot – add your fuel to the fire!

Speaking of hot, don’t miss our Adult Movies section. Headlining this month is the sassy, sexy feature “Revenge of the Petites”, about a group of stature-challenged college gals getting back at the tall, nasty sorority women who’ve made the petites their victims. The delicious Jesse Jane stars in “Romance”, as an author of erotic romance whose sultry fantasy scenarios come to life. (I can identify…!) In the pure smut category, I recommend Brad Armstrong’s “Ink Girls”, a well-decorated feast for the eyes as well as areas to the south. And if (like me) you appreciate the porn of yore, you might like the 1980 flick “Fascination”, which features the debut of adult film legend Veronica Hart, as well as many other stars from porn’s golden age.

You know, of course, where and how to buy any films that catch your fancy. Enough said.

On-screen, the temperature’s rising:

I’ve said it before, but it bears repeating: adult movies and sex toys go together like buns and hotdogs. This month’s Sex Toy Playground features an article on finding your G-spot, from our new affiliate, British toy company Bondara. Mr. and Mrs. Toy are up to their usual mischief, experimenting – purely the sake of knowledge, of course – with the Double Delight Anal Beads, a combination anal probe and ten speed clit vibe. Mrs. Toy says this product is “a perfect example of having your cake and eating it too”. Our monthly Sex Toy Scuttlebutt column highlights the newest, nastiest and most original erotic implements. As a case in point, don’t miss the Glass Pig Tail Butt Plug. You have to see it to believe it!

Give your hand a break:

Inside the Erotic Mind this month, we have a lively discussion of cum shots. Is being splattered with semen sexy or icky? You’ll find strong opinions on both sides of the issue. Share your own thoughts by clicking on the Participate link.

No topic is forbidden inside the erotic mind:

So, is there anything you want that you CAN’T find on the ERWA site? Try our extensive page of Adult Links. We’ve surveyed the web to find the very best sites for adult content of all types, then organized all our recommendations to guide you to just the thing that turns you on. I warn you, though – don’t visit the links page unless you’re safe at home and have a lot of time available to explore.

Well, that about wraps up the July Lure. But wait, I promised you watermelon, didn’t I?

Okay, take off your clothes. (This is going to get messy!) Shut your eyes. I’m holding a ripe slice just under your nose. Breathe in the fruity summer scent. Does it remind you of endless days, sweat-streaked nights, skinny dipping, fireworks? Now open wide, but don’t bite down – not yet. Feel the chill against your tongue – this is fresh from the cooler. Saliva begins to flow as you anticipate the succulent pulp dissolving in your mouth, but be patient. As I’ve learned from my master, waiting makes release all the more intense.

I snatch the unseen slice away, to circle your lips with a juice-drenched finger, leaving sticky sweetness in my wake. Yes, you can lick it off now, the traces of summer I’ve left on your flesh. You want it more than ever, right? Very well. I deposit a chunk in your mouth. You sink your teeth into the morsel and the flavor explodes,  wet and sugary, like liquid sunshine. I offer the rest of the wedge now and you gobble it down, greedy for more sensation. Juice dribbles from the corners of your mouth, trails down your cheeks, lands on your chest. Chew slowly. Savor the taste, the texture. Remember that you’re naked, as I smear more fruit across your belly and down your thighs. Remember that it’s summer, and anything can happen…

See you next month!

Succulently yours,

I'm still a bit surprised to find myself administrator of a community that dwells in the sensual and the erotic. Who would have thought all those dirty books residing under my bed would lead to this? I have to say it is wonderfully liberating to realize the only dirty things under my bed are the dust bunnies; that my passion for things erotic is simply a healthy interest in sexuality. There's nothing quite like a community of like-minded people to light the way. I graduated from University with a degree in anthropology and live with my professor husband. However, the New Yorker in me is still alive and kicking. We have three kids: a professor, a financier, and instructional designer. Things are more comfortable now that they don't have to answer the classic elementary school question, "What does your mommy do?" In 1996, with the help and encouragement of several women, I founded the Erotica Readers & Writers Association. It's a continuing pleasure to mingle with the passionate souls of ERWA.
