Erotic Lure Newsletter

Erotic Lure banner

Dear Lecherous Literati,

Now that the hustle and bustle of the holidays has past, we can get back to serious matters. Like sex. Sure, mistletoe and champagne can ramp up the romance , but seriously, during November and December one hardly has the time to indulge.

We’re deep into January now, with short days and long nights—perfect for erotic exploration. Here at the Erotica Readers & Writers Association, you’ll find everything you need to turn up the heat and keep the thrills coming until spring.

Being an author myself, I always like to start in the Erotica Gallery. In this edition, we have a steamy half-dozen Awesome Authors (left sidebar), each of whom shares a sexy short story or book chapter. Selections in this edition range from paranormal lust to rough power exchange, with everything in between. Meanwhile, original erotica from the ERWA Storytime community is featured in the right sidebar, including ERWA’s trademark flash fiction. Don’t miss these elegant and arousing nuggets.

More than just dirty stories:

https://www.erotica-readers.com/story-gallery/

If you’re like me, the Gallery (wonderful as it is) just won’t be enough erotica to keep you happy. Satisfy your hunger for arousing reading in our Books for Sensual Readers section. It’s dangerous for me to do the necessary research for the Erotic Lure; I always end up adding more titles to my want-to-read list.

This month I honed in on the steam punk collection Valves & Vixens, edited by Nicole Gestalt, as well as Giselle Renarde’s Best Fetish Erotica. Nobody does kink like Giselle! Looking at the novels section, I immediately honed in on Fionna Guillaume’s Tokyo: A Job with a View, about a young woman who takes a position that requires extensive travel—plus much more unorthodox activities. (Check out Fiona’s magnificent story in the Gallery for a sample of her style.) A Little Too Farby Lisa Desrochers also grabbed my interest, with its theme of a woman torn between two taboo attractions. We have a huge selection of gay and lesbian titles for you to sample, including gay fantasy The Woodwoseby Nicolette deSada, habu’s gloriously literate gay collection Creampuffs, Best Lesbian Erotica of the Year Volume 1, edited by the legendary Sacchi Green, and Selena Kitt’s collection of naughty lesbian shorts, Girls Only.

When I tell you this is only the tip of the iceberg, believe me, it’s true! We have scores of titles in every sub-genre for your browsing pleasure, with quick links so you can grab copies of anything that takes your fancy.

Indulge your literary libido:

https://www.erotica-readers.com/books/

What about movies? We’ve got you covered there, too. (Or maybe I should say, uncovered?) In this edition, we feature a top ten list of films starring the delectable Latina, Sara Luvv. I was particularly intrigued by “The Faces of Alice”, about a closeted young lesbian who makes a deal with the devil to win back her out-and-proud lover. (Sara does het porn, too…) Scanning some of the other sections, I noticed “The Doll Underground”, a wild tale about four angry women who become sexual revolutionaries to fight the evils of big business. I also love browsing through the Classic Porn section (since I’m a classic myself). Digital technology allows older films to be restored and remastered so they can be enjoyed by new generations. Henry Paris’ 1970 masterpiece “Maraschino Cherry”, which set the standard for intelligent porn, is a case in point.

Porn for couples, porn for women, porn with a plot, porn parodies, totally unmitigated smut… whatever you’re looking for, you’ll find it (conveniently categorized) at ERWA. Plus we’ve got links to the very best places to acquire the films you crave, including Gamelink, Adult DVD Empire, and SmutNetwork.

All you need to fully enjoy your new adult film is some popcorn—and a sex toy or two. Our Sex Toy Scuttlebutt column keeps you in the know about the latest innovations in self-stimulation. Many of these items are high tech gadgets that wouldn’t be out of place in your typical computer store. (Geeks love ‘em!) For instance, the “Hot Octopuss Vibrating Duo Stroker for Couples” offers a 9 speed oscillator, 5 vibration modes with adjustable frequency, a remote control unit and a USB charger. Fortunately one can still find good old-fashioned manual erotic implements like the Büch Dich (“Bend Over”) Paddle Dildo. An ingenious combination of a multi-textured silicon paddle with a versatile phallic handle, this toy does not require batteries, controls, or anything else other than toned biceps and a good imagination!

Of course we have the links you need to get your hot little hands on any of these items. Let me remind you that everything you buy via our affiliate links helps support the best free adult site on the web. (That would be ERWA, of course.)

Come play!

Inside the Erotic Mind this edition, people are discussing “Spicy Sex”. Altoids? Peppermint oil? Ginger? Chili peppers? Ever tried spicing up your sex life with this sort of fiery additive? What were the results? Come read what others have to say, then share your experiences and opinions. Just click on the Participate link.

There are lots of ongoing discussions on other topics of perennial interest to the prurient. Just make sure you have plenty of time to explore—and some privacy!

 

Dare to venture into the erotic mind:

Last, but certainly not least, we come to the Authors Resources section. If you are an erotic writer, you can’t afford not to take advantage of this rich compendium of knowledge and news. Our Calls for Submission listings are the most complete and up-to-date on the web. The current edition features new calls for femdom erotica, fetish erotica, and erotica on the theme of gluttony. We have guidelines for four new e-publishers seeking erotic romance and literary erotica. The CFS and publisher guidelines are updated regularly, not just when we create a new edition of the site, so bookmark us and visit regularly.

In addition to the CFS section, we have dozens of links to marketing and promotional services, editing services, review sites, author communities— really, everything you need to get your sexy stuff out there where the world can read it.

Meanwhile, for the latest advice on craft and commentary on the erotica writing community, follow the ERWA blog. Written by some of the top authors in the erotic writing industry, the blog discusses everything from character development to dealing with rejection.

 

The world wants to read your work!

https://www.erotica-readers.com/erotica-authors-resources/

Is that all there is? Hell, no! I figure you’ll have fun exploring the rest on your own. I’ll see you again in April. Or if you really can’t wait… well, you know where to find me! (You can probably guess what I’ll be doing when you do, too!)

Stay naughty!

Salaciously yours,

Lisabet

Dear Debauched Denizens of the Darkness,

By the twitching of my thumbs,

Something wicked this way comes.

Well, to be honest, it’s actually other parts of my body that are twitching as I swoop through the (literally) fantastic October edition of the Erotica Readers & Writers Association website. As All Hallow’s Eve approaches, ERWA celebrates the salaciously supernatural and the horrifically horny. Clicking from page to page, I’m overwhelmed by paroxysms of prurient passion….

Too much? Okay, I’ll rein in the alliteration and give you a quick tour, starting in the Erotica Gallery, where you’ll find a slew of stories focusing on magical lust and erotic horror. Blood-thirsty flora, a vengeful murderess, a smart ass exorcist and a clit with a mind of its own—our traditional La Petite Mort theme has inspired the ERWA authors to new heights of creativity. Across the page, our Awesome Authors section includes everything from historical fiction to paranormal romance, all breathlessly erotic.

Indulge your dark desires:

https://www.erotica-readers.com/story-gallery/

If you’re still craving more hot fiction after your sojourn in the Gallery, click over to our Books for Sensual Readers pages. We’ve assembled a rich and varied collection of featured titles for this issue, so you’re sure to find something that appeals. Delores Swallows explores the irresistible attraction of opposites in his short story collection Unlikely, while Giselle Renarde, Kendra Edge and the irredeemably filthy Lexi Wood team up to expose The Secret Life of Sitters. Cheri Verset’s collection So Wrong 12 offers nearly 80,000 words of taboo erotica, and Sharon Lynn Fisher shares her outrageously original erotic fairy tales in Before She Wakes.

If you’re looking for longer stories, check out Avery Kaye’s Royally Wicked, the escapades of a prince in Las Vegas, or Taisha Demay’s tale of a searing office affair, Love, Truth and Consequences: Playing Dirty. I’ve put Candace Blevin’s paranormal erotic romance Be Careful What You Ask For on my TBR list, intrigued by her premise of a half-werewolf/half-human who wants to be wholly wolf. Checking Him Out,Devyn Morgan’s gay erotic romance that pairs a shy librarian and a macho construction worker, sounds delightful. For FF fiction, I recommend Giselle Renarde’s Taboo Lesbian Erotica: 10 Scandalous Stories. I haven’t read it—yet—but I have no doubt it’s as sexy and intelligent as Giselle’s other work.

We have dozens more titles for your browsing pleasure, including vintage and modern classics, sensual romance and sexy sex education. Enjoy zero frustration: any book that casts a spell can be yours in a couple of clicks. Just use our affiliate links and give us a treat: your purchases help support the best free adult site on the web.

Revel in dirty words:

https://www.erotica-readers.com/book-category/featured-titles/

Did someone say porn? If not, why not? When you’re tired of reading and just want to watch, head for our Adult Movies section. Top billing goes to “Babysitting the Baumgartners”, a steamy blockbuster based on the novel by ERWA’s very own fearless leader Selena Kitt. Real life couple Anikka Albrite and Mick Blue star as the sexually adventurous Doc and Mrs. Baumgartner, who seduce their long-time baby sitter, played by Sarah Luv. Enjoy more of Mick’s and Anikka’s special erotic spark in “Mick Loves Anikka”, as Mick indulges his lover’s every forbidden fantasy, from girl-on-girl rimming to double penetration. Another couples top pick is “Tales from the Edge: Hotwife Bound”, a mix of exhibitionism, cuckolding and BDSM.

If none these suggestions ring your bell, explore our extensive list of other titles, conveniently categorized and equipped with buy links for instant gratification.

Experience the magic of movies:

https://www.erotica-readers.com/ERA/AM/5_Favorite_Couples_Movies.htm

Adult movies are a great way to relax while getting off. If you’re more the action-oriented type, though, don’t miss the Sex Toy Playground. This month’s Sex Toy Scuttlebutt focuses on toys for couples. Personally, I’m dying to try the Fetish Fantasy Spinning Swing. Then there’s the Tongue Star Pleasure Vibe, which is just what it sounds like—a mini-vibrator to enhance oral sex. Talk about creativity!

Wondering how to use Ben Wa balls? Confused about lubricants? Curious about prostate stimulation? The Playground includes links to frank and fun articles about these and many more sex-toy-related topics, penned by the experts from Adam & Eve, Good Vibrations and our other reputable suppliers.

You can never have too many toys:

https://erotica-readers.com/ERA/ST/Sex_Toy_Scuttlebutt.htm

Inside the Erotic Mind this month, you’ll find a sometimes arousing and always provocative discussion of body piercing. Expect strong opinions on both sides. Add your own thoughts by clicking Participate!

Dare to share:

https://erotica-readers.com/ERA/ITEM/Body_Piercing.htm

Finally, if you write explicit fiction or non-fiction (or if you’ve ever been tempted to try!), do visit the Author Resources pages, the most extensive list of erotic publishing opportunities anywhere on the web. Three new publishers have just been added to the compendium: Inkubus for gay erotica, MoFo Pubs seeking literary erotica, and Deep Desires Press for erotica and erotic romance. There are also dozens of calls for anthologies including a new vampire anthology entitled “Ravenous”, fiction focusing on wanderlust—with the emphasis on lust—and Rob Rosen’s call for Best Gay Erotica Volume 3.

The page features opportunities for novelists, short story writers, poets and essayists, in every erotic sub-genre. Meanwhile, click on the ERWA Archive link for access to ten years worth of amazing articles by top authors on topics related to the craft and business of writing. Whether you’re an experienced author or just getting started, the archives are an incredible resource.

These days, we publish our craft articles at the ERWA blog – http://erotica-readers.blogspot.com. Our contributors talk about everything from writing sex scenes to doing promotion.

Follow your Muse:

https://www.erotica-readers.com/erotica-authors-resources/

I did it! A complete Erotic Lure almost entirely avoiding alliteration. Do I get a treat? Those fur-lined hand-cuffs look appealing…. Sure, I’ll wear the naughty nurse costume if you want, as long as you’ll let me use the swing…

Wishing you a month of chills and thrills,

Lisabet

Dear Doyennes of Decadent Delights,

Welcome to the July edition of the Erotica Readers & Writers Association website. Summer has officially arrived, and here at ERWA, we’re turning up the heat. Time to strip down, boot up, and follow me for a lazy ramble through some of the juiciest spots on the web. (Try not to be distracted by my naked booty. After all, it’s hot out…!)

In the Erotica Gallery, we’ve got five Awesome Authors to keep your mind (and maybe your hands) busy. They’ll take you from steamy Africa to windy Scandinavia, a prison cell to the family living room, with every stop a lusty new adventure. Our Storytime contributors offer up more sexy fiction (plus some clever poetry), with tales of the sweet hereafter, the bitter fruits of pride, and the tangled webs desire weaves.

Savor words that sizzle:

https://erotica-readers.com/story-gallery

Hopefully you’ll get some time off this summer. If you need beach reading, we’ve got you covered. (Or should that be uncovered?) Our new, expanded Books for Sensual Readers section offers hundreds of choices for the erotica aficionado. Like short stories? Check out Strokes by Delilah Devlin, Alison Tyler’s The Big Book of Kink, or one of the featured Excite Spice themed boxed sets. (Don’t worry, they onlylook heavy!) If you prefer something longer, scroll through our huge list of erotic novels. My pick for this month is Taint, by S.L. Jenning, a taboo-busting tale of a sex tutor who “turns housewives into whores”.

For those of you who crave a happily ever after, we’ve got dozens of erotic romance titles, including Fionna Guillaume’s Not So Square, with its deceptively ordinary accountant hero, and Giselle Renarde’s shocking and arousing Two Complete Strangers. You’ll find plenty of LGBTQ erotica and romance, too. I marked R.A. Thorn’s Untethered for my TBR list, a historical romance about a gay Air Force pilot during WWII. On the FF side, I’ve been wanting to read Ily Goyanes’ widely acclaimed anthology Appetites: Tales of Lesbian Lust since I first heard about it. I can also recommend—personally!—my lesbian fantasy The Witches of Gloucester, which is reviewed in this edition by Bob Buckley.

One of the great things about the e-publishing revolution is the new availability of many previously out-of-print erotic gems. In our Classics pages you’ll find everything from Leopold von Sacher-Masoch’s Venus in Furs to Portia da Costa’s The Devil Inside.

This is only a small sampling of the books we list. And every single one can be yours with a few clicks of your mouse. If you do decide to satisfy your craving for any of these titles, please use our affiliate links. Everything you buy via those links helps keep ERWA gloriously free!

Feed your erotic imagination:

https://www.erotica-readers.com/books/

When you’re in the mood for something visual, head over to our Adult Movies section. Headlining this edition is Adam & Eve’s newly released feature “Babysitting the Baumgartners”, based on the best-selling novel by our very own Selena Kitt. Once you’ve snagged your copy, (you know you want it!) check out our list of twenty five other “must-have” porn features. From classics like Marilyn Chamber’s “Insatiable” to curiosities like “The Uranus Experiment Trilogy” (billed as offering the world’s first zero gravity cum shot), you’re bound to find something—um—stimulating! We’ve assembled recommendations in many categories: porn for women, porn for couples, best-selling porn… Hey, we’ve done all the hard work (and I use the word “hard” advisedly). All you need to do is watch and enjoy!

Get graphic:

https://www.erotica-readers.com/adult-movies/

In this edition’s Sex Toy Playground, we highlight toys for men, including a wireless vibrating thong to make him squirm and a Fleshlight that’s an anatomical copy of super-star Anikka Albrite’s luscious pussy. Don’t worry, ladies—we have goodies for you, too. How about a pair of Nipple Play Pleasurizers? Or the Kgoal Smart Kegel Exerciser? Working out was never so much fun!

Toys that aren’t meant for kids:

https://www.erotica-readers.com/sex-toy-playground/

Inside the Erotic Mind, we have a lively debate about the possibilities for long-lasting ménage/polyamory relationships. The general consensus: not easy but worth the effort. Come share your opinions and experiences. Just click on the Participate link to contribute your thoughts.

We offer up-to-date listings of submissions calls, contact information and guidelines for more than three dozen publishers; links to editors, cover artists, marketing companies and other author services; and much more.

And while I have your attention, authors, let me invite you to join the ERWA Writers and Storytime private email lists. On the former list we discuss writing-related topics such as research, language, publishing tips and ways to handle burnout.

Well, we’ve reached the end of my tour of site highlights. I’ll leave you to explore the many other delights of the new edition on your own. Just don’t do it at work!

Meanwhile, I’m going to take a dip in the pool, then spend the rest of the afternoon naked in the hammock with an appropriately steamy book. Ah, summer!

Salaciously yours,

Lisabet

P.S. If you’d like to be added to my VIP email list, just drop me a note: lisabet [at] lisabetsarai [dot] com. Every month I do an exclusive contest, just for my VIP readers.

Dear Lubricious Lechers,

I’ll bet you thought I’d forgotten you. The latest edition of the Erotica Readers & Writers Association website has been live since the start of April, but not a peep from Lisabet?

A million pardons. I was occupied with my annual slave refresher course and retreat, two weeks of kinky re-education required by my Master each year. That means two weeks away from computers and the Internet. (Try it some time!) Anyway, I’m back now, honed and horny, eager to give you what you’ve been waiting for.

A tour of the current site, I mean. We can talk about the other stuff later.

Let’s begin in the Gallery, where we have stories and chapters from a stellar half-dozen authors who truly merit the label “awesome”. BDSM, science fiction, lesbian lust, magickal connections, taboo sex–sample their tales and you’ll find a bit of everything. Meanwhile, the plentiful selections from our ERWA Storytime list play with forbidden desires, sly humor and erotic horror.

Indulge in literary lust:

https://erotica-readers.com/story-gallery

Summer’s coming–time to stock up on reading material for those long, hot days ahead. Our Books for Sensual Readers section has something for every taste. Check out the SPRING FEVER erotic super bundle, thirteen exciting, passionate tales of the season. Over 100,000 words–that will fill up a lot of days at the beach! Looking for a steamy novel? Consider the outrageously filthy HUNG: A FORBIDDEN ROMANCE by Aya Fukinishi. Go and get your favorite toy; it’s time. Or try MIDNIGHT MIRROR by Delores Swallows, a tale of extremes and obsession in a digital world where it’s all to easy to make fantasies real. I recommend THE GAZILLIONAIRE & THE VIRGIN, my genre-busting BDSM erotic romance that will turn all your expectations on their heads, and I’m definitely drawn to Delilah Devlin’s clever and unconventional vampire tale FRANNIE AND THE PRIVATE DICK. Lovers of gay erotic fiction should snap up a copy of L.M. Someron’s STROKE RATE, a M/M romance set against the background of competitive rowing. In the lesbian section, BOMBSHELLS AND BITCHES, edited Kathleen Warnock and Lea Delaria, caught my eye, as well as Sacchi Green’s BEST LESBIAN EROTICA 2016 volume. I know from experience that I’ll like anything Sacchi edits.

You might also want to take a virtual stroll through the Vintage and Classic Erotica section, where you’ll find (among many other titles) THE EMBROIDERED COUCH, a new translation of a 17th century Chinese novel banned in China. We’ve got lots of sexy non-fiction, too. I’ve put Dr. Sharon Moalam’s HOW SEX WORKS on my TBR list. Yeah, I do have a lot of first hand experience, but I figure I should bone up (so to speak) on the theory!

All these volumes and many more can be yours with a few clicks. Remember that every purchase you make via our affiliate links helps to support the ERWA tradition–twenty years of original, high-quality, free smut!

Mix the joy of reading with the joy of sex:

https://www.erotica-readers.com/books/

What about those of us who write all those books? Authors, we salute you! Visit our Authors Resources pages for tons of information about publishing opportunities, as well as a rich archive of articles on the business and craft of writing.

Looking to publish your sexy stories? Start here:

Are you more visually oriented? Meet me in the newly reorganized Adult Movies section. We’ve got the down-and-dirty on porn for women, porn for couples, porn with a plot, whatever floats your boat. I zeroed in on “The Doll Underground”, directed by Eon McKai, a wild tale of female revolutionaries. Then there’s “Compulsion”, erotic comedy featuring Randy Spears and Carmen Hart as a couple who meet at a support group for survivors of mountain lion attacks (really!). Brad Armstrong is one of my favorite directors; I’ve bookmarked his classic “Eternity”, a lavish production with fantastic costumes as well as delicious bodies. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg.

Whatever your porn preferences, we’ve got you covered. (Or should that be uncovered?) We’ve teamed up with the very best purveyors of adult video to provide you with near-instant gratification, too. Just use our affiliate links to buy whatever films tickle your fancy.

For the voyeur in us all:

What goes better with a smutty film than a sexy toy? As usual, Sex Toy Scuttlebutt showcases the latest and greatest erotic implements, including the Wireless Vibrating Thong for men, and the We Vibe 4 Plus couples vibrator. The latter includes a mobile app (yes, you read that correctly) that allows remote control of the vibe from anywhere on earth. What a brave new world we live in!

You could live without toys. But why should you?

https://www.erotica-readers.com/sex-toy-playground/

Inside the Erotic Mind, you’ll find a sincere and sexy discussion of relationships involving a significant age difference.

Until the next edition of ERWA, in July, I remain…

Lasciviously yours,

Lisabet

By Lisabet Sarai

Dear Lascivious Literati,

Welcome to the Winter edition of the Erotica Readers & Writers Association website. Forgive me for the tardiness of this newsletter. (Yes, I’ll take a spanking as punishment if you feel that’s appropriate…) As you may have heard, ERWA recently experienced a changing of the guard, and we’ve been a bit busy working out the kinks. (Not that we really want to *get rid* of the kinks…just get them under our control!)

In any case, the Winter edition is now available for your browsing pleasure. As usual, I’ll give you a quick peek at all the goodies we’ve got for you.

The Erotica Gallery features a new cohort of Awesome Authors, each of whom has a sizzling story or book chapter for your delectation. This edition includes luscious lesbian lust, voluptuous voyeurism, breathtaking BDSM, randy role-playing and a merry menage.

(Okay, no more alliteration in this issue.)

We’ve also got a variety of fantastic fiction by the members of the ERWA Storytime, in moods that range from playful to plaintive.

(Sorry. Should I bend over now?)

Get serious about erotica:

https://erotica-readers.com/story-gallery

If our Gallery doesn’t fully satisfy your hunger for erotic tales, browse through our Books for Sensual Readers pages. We have dozens of suggestions for your next read. Anthology fans should definitely check out the lovingly curated collection by Rose Caraway, THE SEXY LIBRARIAN’S BIG BOOK OF EROTICA. For those who prefer longer work, I recommend Charlotte Stein’s outrageous novel THE PROFESSOR. We’re also featuring A.N. Roquelaure’s new addition to the Beauty saga, BEAUTY’S KINGDOM. That’s definitely on *my* TBR list. In erotic romance, my pick for this edition is Beth D. Carter’s ALONG CAME MERRIE, full of motorcycles and a sexy menage. We have lots of great LGBTQ books, too. Katie Gilmanton’s BLACKMAIL, MY LOVE is a murder mystery deeply steeped in San Francisco gay history, while editor Ily Goyanes serves up a heaping portion of F/F erotica in APPETITES. For those of you who are into self-improvement, we offer lots of self-help and sex-ed books, too–for example, Violet Blue’s treatise KISSING: A FIELD GUIDE.

You could spend hours ogling our covers and reading our blurbs. Don’t forget to use our affiliate links to buy anything that catches your fancy. Your purchases via Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Kobo or iBooks help support the best free adult site on the web (ERWA, that is).

Read, and dream:

https://www.erotica-readers.com/books/

Maybe you’re more of the visual type. We’ve definitely got what you want, in our Adult Movies listings. Gamelink.com has compiled a list of their ten best-selling titles from 2015, including the emotionally intense drama “The Submission of Emma Marx: Boundless” and the over-the-top “My Evil Step-Mother Fucked My Ass – Volume 2”. What can I say? Something for everyone! You’ll also find Best of 2015 lists for couples porn and big budget flicks, as well as our ever-growing categorized pages of everything from classics to parodies.

Seeing is believing:

https://www.erotica-readers.com/adult-movies/

Are you into action as opposed to observation? Visit the Sex Toy Playground. You’ll find a quick history of sex toys (brought to you by Adam & Eve, who were an important part of that history) plus a round-up on the latest and greatest amorous implements in the Sex Toy Scuttlebutt column. I can’t believe how many new toys are designed to work with mobile phones! I personally prefer more traditional offerings, like the Crystal Jelly butt plug. If you act fast, you could win a Womanizer clitoral stimulator from Eden Fantasies!

The Playground also has links to a wide range of informative and fun articles about toys and techniques, and to the very best purveyors of sexual devices.

Do what comes naturally:

Inside the Erotic Mind this month, the topic is obesity and sexuality. Can fat be a turn-on? Read the comments by our fearless contributors, then if you like, add your own. Just click on the Participate link.

There are no taboos:

https://www.erotica-readers.com/inside-the-erotic-mind/

Erotic authors, I have not forgotten you! The Authors Resources page is brimming with new material. Selena Kitt, who has just taken the helm at ERWA, founded the phenomenally successful Excessica erotica co-operative. She knows what’s going on in the erotica publishing world. The current edition includes at least a dozen new calls for submissions, from Excessica, Cleis, JMS Books, Sexy Little Pages and more. Check out Hot Chili Erotica, a new website that pays for erotic stories. Whatever genre, length or style of erotica you pen, you’ll find a home for it in our listings. We update them whenever we get new information, by the way, as well as posting new calls to the ERWA blog (http://erotica-readers.blogspot.com). So come back often!

Sell your sexy stuff:

https://www.erotica-readers.com/erotica-authors-resources/

I’ve by no means exhausted the content on the ERWA site, but I realize I may have exhausted your patience, so I’ll stop here. I’ve got to go anyway–the batteries in my clit vibe have died.

I’ll be back in April with another naughty newsletter. Until then, stay sexy!

Lubriciously,

Lisabet

Dear Denizens of the Dark Side,

Welcome to the Fall edition of the Erotica Readers & Writers Association! October’s here, Halloween’s around the corner, and we’ve got plenty of treats waiting for you (plus a trick or two).

The Erotica Gallery in this edition is so amazing, it’s practically supernatural. To start with, we have five Awesome Authors serving up their sexy stories for your personal pleasure. From the dangerous delights of an anonymous bar pickup to a holiday tryst with a horny MILF, these authors will prepare you for the traditional devilish debauchery associated with All Hallow’s Eve. Then sample some of the offerings from our ERWA contributors –stories, quickies, flashers and poems, all fantastic and totally free. Whether you like it sweet or nasty, we’ll satisfy your appetite for erotic fare. Don’t miss our traditional October feature La Petite Mort. Our authors adore sending chills up your spine while warming your other parts.

Words make magic:
https://erotica-readers.com/story-gallery

The Books for Sensual Readers section is a cornucopia overflowing with the fruits of fantasy. Rachel Kramer Bussel has two new anthologies out, I WANT YOU BAD (obsessive erotic romance) and DIRTY DATES (kinky couples fiction). Some of my very favorite authors have new releases, including Charlotte Stein’s luscious sounding THE PROFESSOR, a tale of a stern professor and his very naughty student; Portia Da Costa’s Black Lace classic HOTBED, featuring a pair of sisters, one wild, one shy and virtuous–until now; Ashley Lister’s novel of passion, betrayal and gourmet food, JUST DESSERTS; and Victoria Blisse’s sizzling vampire romance THE POINT OF EVIL. Looking for a hot gay read? Check out Eli Easton’s THE TROUBLE WITH TONY, about a PI who goes undercover–way undercover–masquerading as a patient in a sex clinic. My pick for lesbian fiction is Valerie Brundage’s DEAD MAN’S CURVES, a novel about love between women friends that defies labels.

This is, as usual, just a small sampling of the fabulous books we’ve assembled for your delectation. Check out our categorized listings of anthologies, novels, erotic romance, vintage and modern classics, gay and lesbian fiction, and sexy sex ed. You’re bound to find something that tickles your tingle. And once you do, please use our affiliate links to Amazon, B&N or iTunes to buy. Every click helps support the delightfully dirty-minded demons who labor to bring you a new ERWA edition every quarter.

Let’s see, what’s next? How about a quick tour of the Sex Toy Playground? You may not know much about history, but the folks at Adam & Eve do. They’ve got a fun, enlightening article about the history of sex toys. The regular Sex Toy Scuttlebutt column, in contrast, highlights the ultimate in modern erotic apparatus. Consider, for instance, the Kgoal Smart Kegel Exerciser. Yes, it hooks up to your smart phone, and offers you an instant reward for working on your pelvic muscle tone… You have to read about it to believe it.

If you want one (or more), we’ve got links to all the best adult toy stores: Adam & Eve, Good Vibrations, and Gamelink Adult Products.

Just the thing for the trick or treat bag…
https://www.erotica-readers.com/sex-toy-playground/

Adult Movies are our natural next stop. Porn and toys go together like apple pie and ice cream. This month’s features include Brad Armstrong’s stunning opus “Aftermath”, a powerful tale of sexual awakening and forbidden love. My “dirty smutty porn” pick is “Innocence Bound”. Watch–no, drool–as four sweet, uncorrupted young women are bound, used and initiated into the mysteries of lust. My classic recommendation is the last film by Henry Paris (aka Radley Metzger), the 1970’s masterpiece “Maraschino Cherry”. And just in time to answer all those questions raised by The Book That Shall Not Be Named, we bring you “A Lover’s Guide to Erotic Submission”, a two-disc set–one disk with instructional material, one that’s simply
sex.

Amorous apparitions await you:

Inside the Erotic Mind this month, we’re recalling our favorite steamy scenes from mainstream movies. Feel free to share the films that push YOUR personal buttons. Just click on “Participate” and fill in the form.

Authors, I haven’t forgotten you. The list of publishing opportunities in our Authors Resources section gets longer every week. Yes, we do update this section frequently, whenever we get new information. We also post all new calls on the ERWA blog, http://erotica-readers.blogspot.com.

Recent calls for submission include an anthology of geeky kink tales; Coming Together: On Wheels, a motorcycle- and racecar-themed charity anthology; and a call for lesbian power exchange fiction from Harper Bliss. If these three possibilities don’t inspire you, spend a few minutes browsing the other listings. We have literally dozens of publishers on the page, and guess what? They want YOUR work!

Even if you’re a top–submit!
https://www.erotica-readers.com/erotica-authors-resources/

And speaking of the authoring process, you may be interested in the sponsor for this edition of the Lure, Bookalope. Bookalope  is a new website that provides simple and interactive book conversions for electronic and print publication. Its tools grew from years of experience working with authors on their books, and now Bookalope offers these tools to everybody.

The process is easy, intuitive and saves time, while it hides most of the technical stuff. After uploading a file, Bookalope analyzes the visual styling of the text and, with some help from the user, extracts the structured book. Next, it checks the content for spelling and errors in punctuation and typography, and the user may choose to have them corrected. After that, the book is ready for conversion for Kindle, Nook, or iPad, into print-ready PDF, or InDesign or Word for continued editing and design.
Details at: https://bookalope.net

That wraps up this edition of the Erotic Lure. I certainly haven’t covered all the goodies on the site, but I’d rather let you explore on your own. Who knows what (or whom) you’ll find in some shadowy corner?

As for me, it’s less than a month before Halloween, and I still haven’t settled on a costume. I’m torn between Morticia Adams and Elvira Queen of the Dark. Black becomes me, and I do love the way a deeply plunging neckline shows off my — umm — assets…

Lustfully yours,
Lisabet

Dear Summer Sybarites,

What is it about summer and sex? They seem to go together like red wine and sharp cheddar, strawberries and whipped cream, whips and chains… Maybe it’s because of the minimalist clothing. Nothing sets my pulse racing like a tanned, naked shoulder or a bared midriff. Perhaps it’s the vacation vibe, the prospect of a holiday from the demands of the working world. A lazy afternoon in the hammock – a frolic in the surf – a balmy night on a grassy hill, under the blazing stars. Preferably with company, of course!

Whatever the reason, ERWA is here to make the season sexier than ever. Our Summer Edition is blooming with sensual delights, from incendiary fiction to uncensored films, carefully selected to enhance your personal pleasure.

In the Erotica Gallery we have a new crop of Awesome Authors, each of whom has contributed an erotic story or chapter to tantalize and arouse you. Whatever your preference for pairings, M/f, m/F, F/F or M/M, there’s something to satisfy your desires. Authors from our Storytime list add to the mix, with tales in every mood: humorous, desperate, nostalgic, fantastic. You’ll also find a brace of delicious poems to set you dreaming.

Send your imagination on vacation:
https://erotica-readers.com/story-gallery

If you’re worried about getting sand in your mobile device (I would be), we’ve got lots of  Books for Sensual Readers to spice up your time at the beach. The amazing Alison Tyler has two new erotic anthologies out, JUST FOR HER and JUST FOR HIM. Torquere Press has released MYTHOLOGICALLY TORQUED VOlUME 1, a massive collection of erotic tales with mythological themes which features not just the classical Olympians but also gods from Norse, Japanese and other mythological traditions. If you’re brave enough to venture closer to the edge, check out outrageous GONZO COLLECTION by Daddy X.

A.N. Roquelaure (Anne Rice) has released another book in her classic “Beauty” BDSM series, BEAUTY’S KINGDOM. THE INHERITOR by Laura Antoniou is a new tale set in her Marketplace universe. PLAYING DIRTY by C.L. Parker offers a steamy erotic romance full of nasty business tricks. Fans of gay fiction won’t want to miss James Lear’s latest Dan Stagg novel, STRAIGHT UP, set in the ultra-masculine world of Marines and Special Ops forces. And I’m adding at least one new title to my multi-page TBR list: ME AND MY BOI, edited by Sacchi Green. I’ve never been disappointed by one of Sacchi’s books.

Summer’s a time to be self-indulgent. If you feel the urge to purchase any of these volumes, or the dozens of others featured in our Books for Sensual Readers pages, please remember to use the affiliate links on our site. It doesn’t cost you anything, but it helps keep the Erotica Readers & Writers Association alive and writhing.

Beach reading was never hotter:
https://www.erotica-readers.com/books/

What about those of us who are creating all those books? The erotica market is growing, and so is our list of submission calls and publisher’s guides in Authors Resources. New this week in are two anthology calls from House of Erotica, a call for speculative erotic stories to be podcast (for pay) and two new imprints, Sinful Press and Pride Publishing. The latter is a just-opened outlet for all types of GLBTQI fiction, part of the Totally Entwined publishing group.

Check the authors page frequently. We update it whenever we receive information about new publishing opportunities. And while you’re there, why not browse the archives of craft articles from old editions of ERWA? You’ll find great advice and thought provoking commentary from veteran authors. The archives also include book reviews, sex toy reviews, and opinion pieces from the legendary Smutter’s Lounge. You could spend many productive and enjoyable hours in the archives.

Grow your writing career this summer:
https://www.erotica-readers.com/erotica-authors-resources/

But maybe “productive” is not what you want to be this season. In that case, you might want to explore the Sex Toy Playground. This edition shines the spotlight on our partner Adam & Eve, one of the oldest and most respected adult emporia in the business. Did you know that A&E donates 20% of the profits to charity? Why not do a good deed by purchasing some of the delightful gadgets showcased in the Sex Toy Scuttlebutt column?

And while you’re wandering around in the Playground, sample some of our past “how-to” articles. Anal sex? Spanking? Ben Wa balls? If you’ve got a question, our experts may very well have the answer.

Play with yourself – or others:
https://www.erotica-readers.com/sex-toy-playground/

When you’re bored with the toys (if that ever happens…), make our Adult Movies section your next stop. This month’s featured flicks include “Screwing Wall Street”, starring real life stock-broker-turned-porn-star Veronica Vain. Stormy Daniels directs “When It Comes To You”, a couples-oriented tale about a woman torn between two men. Sound like too much plot? Check out “Massive Curves” or “Threesome Fantasies Fulfilled Volume 5”. (I suspect volumes 1 through 4 are also available…) And I’m drooling over the digitally remastered classic “Maraschino Cherry”, directed by erotic master Henry Paris (otherwise known as Radley Metzger). As I may have mentioned in the past, I think Metzger’s brilliant. Too bad my birthday is six months away!

You don’t have to wait, though. Adult DVD Empire, SmutNetwork, Adam & Eve, Lesbian VOD, Gay DVD Empire – we’ve got links to all the best porn sources, and every purchase you make helps support the best sex-oriented site on the Web. (That would be ERWA, of course!)

Indulge in some visual stimulation:
https://www.erotica-readers.com/adult-movies/

Inside the Erotic Mind, the topic is private masturbation when you’re in a relationship. Is it okay to pleasure yourself, even when you’re having plenty of great sex with your partner? I found this discussion fascinating. To share your own thoughts and experiences, just click on the Participate link.

This edition of the Erotic Lure is sponsored by Adam & Eve. The largest provider of adult products in the United States, A&E believes that your sex life should be as limitless as your desires. Every product they offer is backed by decades of experience, superior customer service, risk free shopping, and a passion for helping their customers explore sex in a positive way.

Before I sign off, I’d like to ask a favor. I’m running a reader survey, from now until July 25th. Could you take a few minutes to complete it? Every person who finishes the questionnaire will receive a coupon for a free erotic romance book. In addition, I’m giving away a $50 bookstore gift certificate to one lucky respondent.

The survey is here:

Dear Paragons of the Prurient and Perverse,

Welcome to the Spring issue of Erotic Lure, the newsletter of the Erotica Readers & Writers Association. As the days lengthen, the trees blossom, the sap runs and the natural world explodes into lusty life…we’re doing the same. The new edition of the ERWA website is guaranteed to get your juices flowing, with the sassiest, sexiest and most sophisticated adult content out there in cyberspace.

Our Erotica Gallery will have you slick and swollen in no time. Enjoy our amazingly diverse fiction selected from the Storytime list: a hooker who offers “the girlfriend experience without the girlfriend”; the sexual experience of a man in coma; a fantasy that explains why Henry Thoreau built his cabin next to Walden Pond; a searing tale of corruption and sexual favors guaranteed to make you squirm. And that’s just the start. This edition of ERWA introduces our new Awesome Authors feature. Read short stories or full chapters by some of today’s top erotica authors — all for free! The line-up this edition includes erotic heavyweights like Alison Tyler, Janine Ashbless and…well, go see for yourself!

Let our authors turn you on:
erotica-readers.com/story-gallery

Find more arousing tales in our Books for Sensual Readers section. Just the cover of Violet Blue’s new anthology PICTURE ME NAKED will set your pulse racing. We’ve got the very best for you in every sub-genre: BEST EROTIC ROMANCE 2015 (edited by Kristina Wright), BEST BONDAGE EROTICA 2015 (Rachel Kramer Bussel), BEST SEX WRITING (Jon Pressick), BOMBSHELLS AND BUTCHES: BEST LESBIAN EROTICA (Kathleen Warnock) — and that’s just the books with “best” in their titles. If you’re on the prowl for a novel, check out S.L. Jennings’ provocative TAINT, about a sexual sophisticate who “turns housewives into whores”, or my steamy new paranormal erotic romance THE EYES OF BAST. You’ll find great GLBTQ titles, too, including Neil Plakcy’s anthology of gay romance TAKE THIS MAN and Berengaria Brown’s LESBIAN LOVERS. Meanwhile, if you’re seeking something more explicitly educational, browse our sexy sex ed section. We have the ultimate guides to everything from sex after fifty to prostate pleasure. After all, no matter how good you are in bed, you can always learn new tricks!

As you browse (and fantasize), remember that it’s your purchases via our affiliate links that keep ERWA alive and kicking. If you just can’t control your impulses (and why should you?), please use our links to satisfy them!

Speaking of covers, if you’d like to see YOUR name on one, spend some time exploring our Authors Resources pages. ERWA has the web’s most extensive listing of market opportunities for erotic authors. The Author pages are also your gateway to our extensive archives of craft-related articles (www.erotica-readers.com/insider-tips/) and a useful directory to services and resources for authors (www.erotica-readers.com/links/writers-resources/).

This month’s listings include new publisher Love Slave, the “Rough Edges” anthology of American western tales, and two lesbian calls, from legendary editors Cheyenne Blue and Sacchi Green. The listings are updated whenever we receive something new; incoming calls are also added to the ERWA blog, erotica-readers.blogspot.com, where you’ll find more great posts on writing.

You can’t claim there’s no market for erotica!
erotica-readers.com/erotica-authors-resources

No edition of Erotic Lure would be complete without a quick trip to our Adult Movies section. Featured this month is “Marriage 2.0”, a creative, sensitive and sexy look at a couple in an open relationship. Balancing love and novelty, adventure and commitment, is a tricky task. You’ll enjoy watching this couple rise to the challenge.

Also of note is Brad Armstrong’s latest, “Holly…Would”, starring the stunning Asa Akira as a high end madame. Looks luscious! And for those of you who find plot just gets in the way, I recommend “Student Nurses”. Their uniforms say it all!

Get visual:
erotica-readers.com/adult-movies

What the natural accompaniment for adult movies? No, not popcorn! I’m talking about sex toys. As usual, the Sex Toy Playground keeps you well-informed on the latest erotic implements, neatly summarized in our Sex Toy Scuttlebutt column. This month we also have an article entitled “The Good Vibrations Story”. Did you know they’ve been bringing you pleasure since 1977? Back then, I barely knew what a sex toy was. (Live and learn, I always say!)

Come play!

This edition of Erotic Lure is sponsored by Torquere Press. Torquere, the first GLBT Romance epublisher, began in 2003 as a general partnership, and has grown over the last decade into a much larger organization.

While many publishers in 2003 were publishing ebooks, very few were publishing gay and lesbian romance. The mission of Torquere Press was, and is, to provide readers with great stories, and to promote gay and
lesbian romance, and all the sub-genres of romance, as a genre to be reckoned with.

That’s all for this edition. I’ve got to get back to my latest work in progress. My characters aren’t being very cooperative. I keep trying to move the plot forward, but all they want to do is have sex. (I’m not kidding…)

Wishing you a squishy Spring!

Lubriciously yours,
Lisabet

Dear Winter Wankers,

The holidays are over. The mistletoe has been taken down and the champagne bottle’s empty. My fur-trimmed red velvet corset is back in the drawer, waiting for next year. Chill, dark months loom ahead.

Good thing you have the Erotica Readers & Writers Association to warm you up!

The Winter Edition of the ERWA website is the next best thing to a luxury vacation in the tropics: steamy, exotic, sinfully self-indulgent. And it’s all free!

In the Winter Erotica Gallery, our talented authors turn up the temperature with masterfully crafted explicit fiction that will have you sweating after the first few paragraphs. Lovers, strangers and spies, fetish clubs and sex videos, swinging (in several senses) – the deliciously diverse winter Gallery stories share one common feature: every one is sizzling hot.

Unfreeze your libido:
erotica-readers.com/story-gallery

By the way: it’s our January tradition to update the ERWA Treasure Chest with the very best of the galleries from the previous year. We’re a bit late this year (overindulging in eggnog can do that!) but we promise to add the gems from 2014 by the middle of the month. Don’t worry, we’ll announce the update right here on ERWA blog.

If the Gallery’s not enough to get you through those long, cold nights, I recommend a visit to our Books for Sensual Readers section. Short story fans will want to grab a copy of Maxim Jakubowski’s MAMMOTH BOOK OF BEST NEW EROTICA 13, or perhaps BEST WOMEN’S EROTICA 2015, edited by Violet Blue. (But then again, why not get both?) And what bibliophile could resist Rose Caraway’s collection THE SEXY LIBRARIAN’S BIG BOOK OF EROTICA? For those of you who like longer works, we have lots of novels and novellas, including COVER HIM WITH DARKNESS by Janine Ashbless, a tale of lust, ancient mysteries and fallen angels, and my own BDSM erotic suspense title BANGKOK NOIR. If you’re in the mood for a sexy love story, sample Beth Carter’s menage tale ALONG CAME MERRIE or Alice Clayton’s madcap romance SCREWDRIVERED. In M/M fiction, I recommend Tempeste O’Riley’s CAGED SANCTUARY, the riveting story of a man disabled in a gay bashing attack. BEST LESBIAN EROTICA 2015 is out, edited by the legendary Laura Antoniou. And I’m planning to buy myself a copy of BLACKMAIL, MY LOVE by historian Katie Gilmartin, an illustrated LGBT murder mystery set in the queer underground of 1950’s San Francisco.

We’ve got lots more incendiary titles for you, including classics and non-fiction. You could spend hours browsing our virtual shelves. If anything catches strikes your fancy, be sure to use our affiliate links to make your purchases. Every penny you spend after following our links to Amazon or iBookstore helps to keep ERWA’s fires from going out!

I know lots of my author colleagues are setting goals and making New Years resolutions right about now. For some winter inspiration, pay a visit to the ERWA Authors’ Resources section. Our calls for submissions and publishers’ guidelines list dozens of places to submit your work. We update the page frequently, whenever we get new information. Right now, new publisher Sinful Press wants your erotic novels. Website Bright Desires is seeking erotic flash fiction and stories. House of Erotica needs spy stories. Totally Bound has calls out for half a dozen different sub-genres of erotic romance. That’s just a small sample of the list.

The Author pages also include great archived content on the craft and business of writing, as well as a page of useful links to marketing services, cover artists, review sites, and much more. And while we’re on the topic of useful links, take a look at THE SELF-PUBLISHER’S ULTIMATE RESOURCE GUIDE, a new book for indie authors setting out on their own. For more insight, guidance and support for your literary ambitions, follow us here on the ERWA blog where a dozen established erotica authors post about writing, publishing, sex and society. Or (and!) join our Writers email list, for lively discussions of everything authorly from commas to condom use in sex stories.

The weather doesn’t matter as long as you have a good collection of toys with which to amuse yourself – and your friends. In the Sex Toy Playground, we keep you au courant on the hippest, hottest new erotic equipment. In this edition, the fine folks at Good Vibrations offer sound advice in “Bondage Basics” – just the help you need to get started learning the ropes. Our regular Sex Toy Scuttlebutt column spotlights a variety of intriguing playthings, including the sleek Iroha Minamo vibrator, the Frisky Fox Tail anal plug (I want one!) and the Fleshlight Phone Strap. The latter is a device that attaches your mobile device to your thigh so you can watch arousing videos even when your hands are – um – busy. I’m rolling my eyes, but I’ll bet it sells!

Play with fire:
erotica-readers.com/sex-toy-playground

Speaking of arousing videos, no visit to the ERWA website would be complete without a stop in our Adult Movies section. Headlining this month is Brad Armstrong’s “Aftermath”, a searing tale of taboo relationships involving several members of the same family. Also of note is “Exchange Student 3”. The exquisite Anissa Kate stars as a sexy foreign student brought into a household as a decoy by a wife trying to hide her infidelity. On the topic of spouses, don’t miss “I Love My Hot Wife”, tales of a guy who watches his wife get fucked by other men. In the porn classics department, we feature “Tout Est Permis” (Everything Goes), a 1977 French flick about a couple pushing their sexual boundaries.

We give you convenient links after each film we list, just in case you decide you can’t live without it. Use ’em!

For those who like to watch:
erotica-readers.com/adult-movies

Inside the Erotic Mind this edition, you’ll find an extremely active discussion (five pages so far!) on the topic of losing one’s virginity that dispels some of the myths perpetrated by popular erotic romance these days. To share your own experiences of that first time, just click on the Participate link.

You can read and comment on the other discussions on the Erotic Mind page, too. They’re all nicely categorized for your convenience!

The Winter Edition of ERWA is sponsored by Loose Id, a leading publisher of erotic romance. The California-based company is an acknowledged industry leader with seven years in business. It publishes between 16 and 24 titles per month by more than 200 talented authors worldwide, unleashing readers’ fantasies with a full panoply of erotic romance subgenres, ranging from BDSM capture fantasy to yaoi, and including exceptional traditional favorites, contemporary and historical.

The company promotes itself through web and print advertising wherever readers of erotic romance may be found, creating a recognizable brand identity as the place to let your id run free and the people who unleash your fantasies. It is currently pursuing licensing agreements for foreign translations, and developing a print program of 2 to 5 titles per month.

Loose Id is looking for stories that unleash the power of fantasy and the id. Send us your new twists on old favorites, both erotic and romantic. Whether it’s that hot ass cop and the speeder he pulled over, a threesome with your two best gay friends, anonymous sex with the guy you saw pumping gas, capture fantasy, sex slavery, cowboy and city slicker, secret babies, secretary and sheikh, we want stories that tap specific reader fantasies and capitalize on the chemistry between the characters.

Well, that wraps up the Winter installment of the Erotic Lure. I hope this will be enough to keep you simmering until the ERWA Spring edition. As for me – stretched out naked in front of a roaring fire on our bear skin rug, with a mug of mulled cider in one hand and my lover in the other, I’m definitely not feeling the chill!

I wish you all a happy, healthy, lusty New Year!

Intimately yours, Lisabet

Dear Devotees of Dark Desire,

Welcome to the autumn edition of the Erotic Lure, newsletter for the Erotica Readers & Writers Association. As the smoke-scented nights grow chilly and shadows flit across the hunter’s moon, it’s time to hunker down at home with your honey and enjoy some erotic thrills.

Don’t expect silly comments about risque Halloween costumes in this issue of the Lure. No groan-inducing puns or double entendres. This newsletter concerns itself with magick – specifically, the irresistible power of sexuality to transform the world.

The enchantment begins in the Erotica Gallery. Breaking with the usual practice, our erotic fiction this month is authored by contributors to the ERWA blog rather than members of the Storytime list. Indulge yourself with nine steamy tales that cover the full emotional gamut, from bloody sexual obsession to light-hearted fantasy, written by Donna George Storey, C. Sanchez-Garcia, Remittance Girl, M.Christian, K.D. Grace, Jean Roberta, Elizabeth Black. Ashley Lister, and yours truly. I’m sure you know many of these authors. If some of their names are unfamiliar, then a treat awaits you as you sample their considerable talent.

We’re not completely discarding our ERWA traditions, though. From October 17th to October 31st, the Gallery will be augmented by tales from Storytime authors on our popular annual theme “La Petite Morte”. Expect werewolves, vampires, ghosts, demons and other creatures that go bump in the night, indulging in unmentionable Halloween carnality.

Let our stories cast their spells:
https://erotica-readers.com/story-gallery

Want more sexy stuff to read? Come browse the ever-changing array of options in our Books for Sensual Readers section. This month we feature COMING TOGETHER PRESENTS: AMANDA EARL, a charity anthology of hard-core stories by long time ERWA member Amanda Earl. Proceeds support AIDS research. Other bewitching anthologies on offer include Delilah Devlin’s HOT HIGHLANDERS AND WILD WARRIORS (worth buying for the cover alone!) and Mitzi Szereto’s Gothic-themed collection DARKER EDGE OF DESIRE. There are lots of new novels listed, many written by authors I haven’t encountered previously. I was drawn to THE GIRL IN 6E by A.R. Torre, a warped thriller about a vampire who hides from society and makes her living providing explicit webcam performances. Meanwhile, erotic romance fans will enjoy Marie Harte’s STEPPING OUT. Her hero and heroine share a lot: a history of cheating ex-spouses, a profound lack of trust for the opposite sex and an undeniable chemistry. Fun!

In the gay fiction category, Charlie Cochet’s A ROSE BY ANY OTHER NAME caught my eye. This gay historical romance, set in the Roaring Twenties, pairs a street-wise performer in a gay cabaret with an emotionally-shattered ex-soldier. Teresa Wymore’s dark paranormal tale ECHO OF DARKNESS gets my vote in the lesbian fiction category. I haven’t seen her name in a while (she had a story in the ERWA anthology I edited, CREAM); I’m delighted to learn that she’s still writing. And if you’re seeking sexual enlightenment (aren’t we all?), take a look at PARTNERS IN PASSION, a treatise on sex and intimacy by Mark A. Michaels and Patricia Johnson.

Of course all these books, as well as the scores more featured on our site, can be yours with a few clicks of the mouse. I’m sure you know that every penny you spend via the ERWA affiliate links helps to support ERWA and lets us continue to provide fabulous, free erotic content – just as we have for eighteen amazing years.

Glory in the written word:

Can sex toys be magic? The ones featured in this edition of Sex Toy Scuttlebutt definitely look that way. Consider the Blue Motion Remote Vibrator, which can be controlled from anywhere in the world via its WiFi connection. Sounds like some sexy sorcery to me… The carnal conjurors from Good Vibrations have penned a fantastic article entitled “What is an orgasm?” Before you dismiss this with a grunt of “I know it when I see it”, read the column. It may change your perceptions about coming.

Wave your magic wand:
https://www.erotica-readers.com/sex-toy-playground/

The Adult Movies pages provide more charmed entertainment. John Stagliano’s most recent collection of “Voracious” episodes is appropriate to the season: artistic, moody, kinky tales of vampires who hunger for more than blood. Erika Lust’s “XConfessions” is a bit more experimental – ten explicit short films of individuals acting out the widely varying fantasies they’d previously confessed to the director. If you crave a bit of love with your porn, I recommend college romance “Second Chances”. What’s a girl to do when the hunk who did her wrong as a freshman reappears in senior year?

As usual, I tried to select a “dirty smutty porn” flick to feature, but all the ones listed seemed to have an excess of plot. You’ll have to choose a favorite on your own. I’m definitely intrigued by the classic “The Virgin and the Lover”, the 1973 debut of the legendary Jennifer Welles.

If my picks don’t suit your mood, browse through the dozens more we have listed. And if you discover some film you just can’t live without – well, you know what to do!

Inside the Erotic Mind, the featured conversation revolves around age and sex. Is sex like fine wine, better when aged? Or does the spark disappear as the years pile up? I think you’ll find the responses encouraging. If you’d like to add your own comments, click on the Participate link. And if you’ve got a few minutes, explore the other ongoing forums on various X-rated topics.

Our last stop in our pre-Halloween tour is the Author Resources pages. If you enjoy writing erotica, and you’d like to share your visions with a larger circle, take a look at our extensive list of publishers and calls for submission. Recent calls include “Desire Behind Bars” (prison-themed lesbian erotica), “Resonator” (Lovecraftian erotica about heightened perception) and “No Safewords II” (a call for stories set in Laura Antoniou’s Marketplace world). If you don’t find just the right place to send your work today, check back in a week or so. We update the list regularly.

By the way, if you’re not sure you’re ready to publish, but want to hone your literary skills, consider joining the Storytime and/or Writers email lists. The former is an online critique group for erotica. The latter offers discussions on a wide range of craft and publishing issues. Both lists include a lively combination newbies and seasoned smutmongers. To join, see the instructions at

This edition of Erotic Lure is sponsored by SilkWords, the go-to source for interactive erotic fiction. We love variety in stories and publish all genres of erotica. We also offer very competitive rates to our authors, whom we consider to be our partners.

All stories and story teasers on our web site are free. With gorgeous custom covers and a clean, sophisticated design, our site offers a secure, upscale reading environment. All of our content is also available for purchase in the standard e-book formats.

SilkWords features two types of interactive stories: “pick your path” (remember the old CYOA books?) and reader-vote (where authors collaborate with readers in developing their stories).

SilkWords is woman-owned and operated by a full-time mom with a background in environmental science, and an RWA RITA-nominated sci-fi romance author for Tor/Macmillan. Our technology guy and site designer was the founder of Microsoft Xbox Live.

I think it’s time for me to cut you loose to explore on your own. Enjoy this season of sorcery and spells, and don’t be afraid to conjure a bit of pleasure out of the ether.

Esoterically yours,
Lisabet
