Erotic World Book Day! Join the Celebration & Make a Difference

Erotic World Book Day600x252x10451695_10153072219932288_77034253428028699_n1-600x252.jpg.pagespeed.ic.v-8zCTsBWT

I’m very excited to be participating in the first ever Erotic World Book Day on the 5th of March, and I hope you’ll be joining in the fun for a good cause.

While celebrating the erotic literature we all love, Erotic World Book Day has a greater purpose —  to raise vital funds for sexual health and well-being organisation, Brook, the sexual health charity.So how did it come about?

World Book Day has long celebrated the way in which books can educate, entertain and open up new worlds to explore. That got us thinking: erotica can also educate and entertain. Erotic readers and writers are likely to support sex ed. Solid, evidence-based sex education is desperately needed and often woefully inadequate. So why not use March 5 as a chance to raise money for Brook? Well, it seemed obvious to us…

While EL James has certainly propelled erotica into the mainstream, there’s a lot more than 50 Shades of erotic writing out there to enjoy.

 

 

Featuring 22 erotic stories from authors across the globe, An Intimate Education spans a range of sexualities, genders and desires. The stories show the diversity of erotica, taking in romantic sex, kinky sex, paranormal sex and a lot more besides. All stories show that safe can be sexy.  Created to celebrate the first ever Erotic World Book Day (#EWBD), all profits from An Intimate Education will go to sexual health and well being charity, Brook.

I got involved with Erotic World Book Day because I can’t imagine good literature without sex. Our sexuality can’t and should not be separated from who we are as creative, vital, dynamic beings. To be able to celebrate that very human, very vibrant part of who we are through literature is very exciting to me. To be able to couple that celebration with raising money for Brook to help make sure that young people have the tools to celebrate their own sexuality safely and well-informed makes is a win-win on all levels.”

In addition to raising money for sex education, Erotic World Book Day (#EWBD) aims to show the astounding range of desires that are catered to through erotica. From men in love to women in charge, first time fetish to loving passion, myriad themes are explored – and erotica can be so much more than a one handed read.

Erotic World Book Day originator, and sex writer, Emily Dubberley says, “The joy of reading erotica is that it allows you to explore worlds that you might not dare to in real life, and ‘try on’ new experiences for size. Conversely, writing erotica allows you to express – and sometimes hone – your desires, and share them with other people, should you so wish. And both can be incredibly educational.”

Erotic World Book Day has proved that ‘if you build it, they will come’: over 200 erotic authors, including many of the top names in the genre, have signed up for the event;. Award-winning sex writer and adult industry marketer Cara Sutra has persuaded

 

adult retailers and erotic publishers to provide over £1,000 worth of prizes for the Facebook party too.

So join Erotic World Book Day on 5 March https://www.facebook.com/events/880543642004967

We hope you find something that arouses your brain, stirs your loins and generally satisfies you. If not, ask us for recommendations for erotica that does match your desires on the night – because it is almost certainly out there, no matter how niche you may consider your fantasies to be.

And if you do take pleasure in this book, party or both, please show Brook your appreciation by sharing their donate link (attached) or giving them much needed funds. Knowledge is power. It’s important that we give young people power over their own sexuality. We are also asking people to change their FB profile picture/Twitter AVI to the attached ‘donate’ image in support of Brook, the sexual health charity.

Werewolves and vampires, succubi and witches, ghosts and shifters, they’ll all be here for Things that Go Hump in the Night!

The event will begin on the 1st of October and end on the 31st with the chilling, sizzling finale of my paranormal erotic Lakeland Witches serial, Demon Interrupted. Things that Go Hump in the Night will also coincide with my two-week Lakeland Witches blog tour from October 27th to November 7th.
