Granny Knickers and White Chocolate Willies

With guest arriving for lunch in less than two hours, me still in sweats and the house still in need of a good hoovering, I’m hard at work researching a story. I’m browsing the cotton granny knickers in the Sainsbury clothing department. As I try to decide whether white knickers will be best or if tiny pink flowers might be a nice touch, my brain is contemplating the sexiness of large cotton underpants. I decide on plain white and hurry to meet my husband near the checkout, where he glances impatiently at his watch.

The hoovering gets done, and I manage a shower and slap on some make-up. It’s a lovely lunch with good conversation and good friends. It’s great catching up and reminiscing. But as we talk about recipes and walking in Snowdonia, in the back of my mind I consider how loose granny panties would have to fit before one could tie the crotch in a knot.

I serve up pudding wondering how cotton knickers taste dripped in caramel sauce, or how one would feel if one received a pair under the Christmas tree, all wrapped up in gold paper, with a sexy note from a lover. Over coffee, I think about what a spanking might feel like through white cotton knickers, and as we say good-bye at the door, the story begins to form in my head.

Now the house is quiet, and I sit at the computer with a cup of tea, sucking on white chocolate willies – a gift from a friend, who somehow just intuited I would be the type to enjoy rude chocolate. I know I’m surrounded by lots of things that aren’t sexy, but as I think about granny knickers and the spark of a story I wonder just how many things, everyday things that I have yet to contemplate are sexy, or at least could be with a little imagination and enough rude chocolate.

 

It Gets Better!

One of my pet peeves is the pop-culture assumption that no one over thirty has sex, and if they do, they’re probably not very good at it. Guess again! Let’s here it for experience. Check out this fabulous article in today’s Times

 

The Female Gaze

If you’d like to learn more about what turns women on visually, then you won’t want to miss this exciting presentation by editor of Filament Magazine, Suraya Sidhu Singh

‘The female gaze’ – Photographing men erotically for women

This will be a presentation rich in photographic examples – ranging from the stunning, to the hilarious, to the baffling – as well as unravelling research findings, all of which tell us a story about the beauty of the erotic mind and the constricted, stereotyped world in which women’s erotica has often been produced.

Best Women’s Erotica 2010

Left to right, Jacqueline Applebee,
yours truly, Violet Blue, Scarlet French.

Sh!
Reading the good parts!

Remember when you were an adolescent, always skipping to the naughty parts in every book, a book you probably weren’t supposed to be reading in the first place. Actually, it was always easy to find the naughty parts because the books, any book any adolescent ever had hold of, would always just fall open to those bits from frequent perusing, if you get my meaning.
Imagine a whole book of nothing but naughty parts! Wow! Does it get any better?
That was pretty much the theme of Friday night at Sh! Women’s Store, where our amazing editor, Violet Blue, my sisters in erotica, Jacqueline Applebee and Scarlet French got to read nothing but the best bits from Cleis Books Best Women’s Erotica 2010, and Jaquie gave us a delicious taste of The Best of The Best Women’s Erotica 2, to be released in February. As you probably suspected, Women’s Best Erotica 2010 is a best bits only sort of read. The four of us, along with a very enthusiastic audience gathered in Sh! to drink pink fizz, eat cupcakes and be titillated by story. It was bliss!
Renee and Joanna and the lovely women at Sh! were hostesses extraordinaire, and I had to be practically shoved out the door at the end of the evening because it was such a great place to be. Sh! is definitely the place to find that perfect naughty gift for someone nice. (Personally I’d recommend a copy of WBE 2010 for starters.) I was occupied reading and drinking fizz Friday night, but I’ll be back with shopping list in hand.
Don’t be too disappointed if you missed it. Plans are already in the works for another reading of the best bits in March, with Best of the Best Women’s Erotica on the menu.
