Sexy Storytelling on Sex City!

Last night's Sex City was definitely a different experience...and it was AWESOME!

We often talk to people about the mechanics of, the feelings or, the politics of, the art of sex. But we don't always take enough of a listen to our stories of sex. Thank you to Samantha Fraser and Sophie Delancey from Tell Me Something Good Sexy Storytelling Slam and a special thank you to Elle Chronique, Wil McLean and Tynan Rhea for sharing their experiences.

Give in to The Big Book of Submission

Rachel Kramer Bussel is without compare when it comes to collecting the best erotica on specific sexual subjects. With her latest The Big Book of Submission: 69 Kinky Takes (Cleis Press), Rachel has taken what can sometimes be a single act and what can sometimes be an encompassing lifestyle and pulled together an outstanding array of stories that fall from one end to the other—and everywhere in between. Great for those who are curious about submission and those who have already given in (or have others giving in to you). 
Whet your appetite with this excerpt from Alyssa Morris’s ‘Patiently Waiting’

Her nostrils fill with the scents of leather and the vanilla candle that she knows is lit on the table. On her knees, leaning over the ottoman next to the couch, her breasts rub on the cold leather as her nipples harden and try to push deeper into the material. The added stimulation is welcome, especially since she has been tightly blindfolded and had earplugs put in. She can’t hear anything, and even if she got the blindfold to come off she wouldn’t be able to look behind her due to being bound in her current position. Her hands are tied tightly behind her back, forcing her to use her chest to keep herself balanced. She can only imagine how she looks, chocolate skin draped over the smooth cream-colored leather. She waits, the fan blowing above her creating a gentle breeze that caresses her body from the back of her shoulders down to the crack of her plump ass. Her brown dreaded hair is down, just how he likes it, and she can feel some of it tickling the nape of her neck.
For her, being told to wait is one of the hardest commands to follow. She can suck cock on command, get in position for a spanking when asked and be open and ready for a good fuck whenever her Master gets hard. However, waiting is the most painful act. To her it feels like a waste. Why make her wait when she could be being used in some way? She already knows the answer to this question as it floats through her mind. Because it is about submitting to her Master; he knows how to push her limits in just the right way. Some have their limits pushed by pain or extreme behaviors. Not her; when she is waiting her mind races, wondering when he will appear.
As what seem like hours pass before her, she thinks about what might be coming. Will it be a spanking or will her Master be so horny from watching her squirm in anticipation that he won’t be able to keep from fucking her? Her mind continues to race. At least when he’s behind her with a riding crop or a paddle she knows there is another blow coming, another jolt to her nervous system, but waiting is completely different; she doesn’t know where to expect a sensation of pleasure or pain. He’s told her that he would test her both physically and mentally. She should have known that when he asked her what her biggest personality defect was and she responded, “I can be so impatient sometimes, I’ll work on it though,” he would be the one to help her get there. Even though she feels like this is some kind of punishment, she knows it isn’t, and trusts him to know when she’s reached her limit.

A Call to End Mastubation Stigma

How is it, in our world, that a teenager can be teased, bullied and shamed for masturbating?

How is it this act, the most simple and easy of pleasures, can have such a stigma around it? 

The inimitable Carol Queen was recently interviewed on the tragic bullying and suicide of 14-year-old Matthew Burdette.

Can her words have come weight please? Can we stop this ridiculous social judgement of masturbation?

Alison Tyler Leaves Us Bound for Trouble—In the Best Possible Way!

How does Alison Tyler do it? Every collection, every book is an exquisite journey into the world of BDSM erotica. Is it too easy to say that we readily submit to her? In her latest collection Bound for Trouble: BDSM Erotica for Women (Cleis Press), Tyler again brings together pleasure and pain. Again demonstrates the dual desires of dominance and submission. Again ties us up in those knots that we desire. 

Revel in this excerpt from Sophia Valenti's ‘Simple Pleasures’
Perfectly still. That’s how I wanted him. Unable to move, unable to speak. Unable to schedule yet another meeting or conference call. I wanted him to stop moving and be fully present in the moment, instead of rushing through it because he was already planning the next one.
I understood where he was coming from, I really did. Marco was a busy man. His life was a maelstrom of appointments. Between meetings, travel, and business engagements masquerading as social events, it was a wonder we found any time to date. Though I’ll admit that sometimes he managed to fit me in by double booking. Trust me, I’d gone to my fair share of corporate shindigs, during which I’d smile and make polite conversation that was only interrupted when impossibly slender wannabe actors would wander by with trays of tiny food. The servers would flash their professionally whitened smiles, but when I looked into their eyes, I could tell they’d rather be somewhere else. It was similar to the look of longing I’d see in Marco’s eyes at the end of a tiring day, when he’d let his guard down. I knew he loved his work, but he was wrapped up in a tangle of obligations. Having taken control of his family’s business, he was determined to make it even more successful than it had already been. Pride and ambition fueled him, but he didn’t know how to switch off those feelings in order to recharge.
The world may have seen a bold, successful executive, but I saw a man who desperately needed someone else to take the reins—if only for a little while.
I’d seen glimmers of that desire the times I’d wrested control from him in the bedroom. The first time I flipped us over and rode his cock, I saw his eyes light with fire. The next time, I took things a step further, holding his wrists over his head as I ground my body against him and took my pleasure. I watched his face soften as he surrendered to my will and lost himself in pure, unadulterated lust.
I felt like his true nature had been revealed to me for the very first time, and it tripped something inside me. I wanted to see that look again. I wanted him exposed and vulnerable, abandoning everything he thought he needed to be.
While he may have lavished me with expensive presents, that moment of clarity and release would be my gift to him.

Topless Tea & Samba Sass
Oasis Blog

The Oasis event this Saturday was titled "Sun, Samba & Sex" although the weather didn't cooperate with us, so it was more like "Rain, Samba & Sex!" However that didn't stop the hosts, volunteers and guests from having fun and making it feel like the sun was blazing in the sky! The afternoon began with a topless tea party on the front lawn of Oasis (facing Carlton Street). This "topless promo" was geared towards raising excitement for the Oasis event "Pop Your Picnic Cherry" event happening this Saturday at Toronto's Cherry Beach.

TMI Tuesday: July 22, 2014—Can we talk… relationships?

TMI Tuesday: July 22, 2014

Hello. Welcome to TMI Tuesday. Up this week:
Can we talk… relationships?



1. What is the first thing that pops into your mind when you see an attractive person?
"Hey, look at that attractive person..."

2. What is your idea of a dream date? Describe the person and the type of date experience.
I don't have one. I'll never have one. Experiences are to be had and not planned or anticipated. Same with the person. 

3. How many serious relationships have you had? Were you in love?
4...and yes, every time

4. How many casual sexual relationships have you had?
Not many...4-5? 

5. What will ruin a relationship for you?
The worst thing in the world is if a person is not genuine. And this doesn't just mean truthful. The person needs to be genuine to their own self as well. Nothing tanks a relationship faster than a person who isn't true to themself.

Bonus: What is your definition of sexy?
Comfort

TONIGHT: Canada’s New Prostitution Laws: The impact on Sex Workers

Canada’s New Prostitution Laws: The impact on Sex Workers

TONIGHT 

at 7:30pm

Duke of York
39 Prince Arthur Ave., Toronto

Find Tickets

Tickets Available
www.eventbrite.ca


In a unanimous decision, the Supreme Court of Canada struck down three provisions in the criminal code related to prostitution. The Supreme Court found the old laws, under which prostitution was legal while related activities were not, violate the right to security of the person which is protected by the Charter of Rights and Freedoms. Parliament had one year to come up with changes.

The government recently tabled Bill C-36, the “Protection of Communities and Exploited Persons Act”, in response to the laws struck down in December. These proposed changes are aimed at buyers of sexual services and “pimps”, and defines sex work as inherently dangerous and exploitative. However, the sweeping changes do not protect sex workers.

Rather than criminalizing the purchasing of sexual services in a bill unlikely to survive a Supreme Court challenge, Canada could look to alternative models of legislation such as New Zealand which decriminalized sex work in 2003. The move saw little increase in the number of people entering the trade, but sex workers have reported improved health, safety, and human rights.

Sonya JF Barnett, co-founder of After Bedford, and Rachel, a board member from Maggie’s Toronto Sex Workers’ Action Project, will be joining us to discuss the impacts Bill C-36 on sex workers.

Join us on July 21 at the Duke of York. Doors open 7:00pm. Discussion starts 7:30pm.

Please RSVP on our Eventbrite page. You can follow the ticket link provided here.

Women Claiming Their Sexuality

Here, here!
Excellent post by the inimitable Bobbie Morgan of A Good Woman's Dirty Mind on the need for women to claim their sexuality. Reading her story and experiences, I am left to wonder how many other women are in the same position and how much more we need, societally, to do to make it possible for women to fully, happily explore their sexuality.

Know Your Lube Ingredients

Interesting article detailing the different ingredients that various lubes might contain. Personally, I'm glad Sliquid got a mention, they're product is good. But a key take away here is to know what affects your body, what you might react to, before using it. As an aside, I sure wish a paragraph might have been devoted to lubes and ass sex.

Please Fund The Atlas of Erotic Anatomy and Arousal

I received word about this outstanding project being undertaken in Australia and I think it sound fantastic. Please consider funding it! With only two weeks to go, time is getting tight!
The Atlas of Erotic Anatomy and Arousal will be truly a revolutionary product - there is currently nothing in the world like it, teaching how our bodies are built for sexual pleasure ( not reproduction) and how to make the most of that.

The project is made of up a series of 4 online seminars presented by me, Cyndi Darnell, one of Australia's leading sex therapists & sex educators. I've been producing and presenting sex and pleasure seminars, workshops and events for over 5 years. Now, I want to take tested and proven material to a global audience by creating audio-visual seminars to be distributed online, as downloadable seminars and live-hosted webinars.

The seminars aim to help people have the best sex they possibly can in ways that are helpful, fun and sexy, and neither too clinical nor sleazy. They will be illustrated by fine line drawings being created specifically for this series by one of Australia's finest illustrators, Lily Mae Martin.
We are now seeking funding with the intention of starting the project at the beginning of August and having The Atlas of Erotic Anatomy and Arousal complete and ready for distribution by January 2015.
If you feel drawn to supporting the project you can do so here

http://www.pozible.com/project/183729
and also share it with people and organisations you feel would also benefit from it.
We have only 2 weeks left to hit our target so anything you can offer to help out is deeply appreciated.

The flow of power between two or more people is a lot like a dance – in fact, specific physical motions and positions can lend D/s much of its flavour and beauty. This class will explore the use of body language and protocol to reinforce your dominant/submissive dynamic, focusing on grace, subtlety, confidence and attentiveness for both dominants and submissives. There will be lots of ideas to get you started on developing your own smooth dance of power. Areas we'll cover include opening doors / walking through, kneeling / receiving kneeling, handing something over to be taken / gracefully taking, assistance with dressing and undressing, walking, sitting, waiting, voice, touch, sex and play. Great for couples and groups; solo participants are welcome.

People of all genders and orientations welcome!

Call For Submissions: In Vikings' Arms (updated submission deadline)

Call For Submissions

In Vikings' Arms
Editor: Delilah Devlin
Publisher: Cleis Press
Deadline: July 15, 2014 August 10, 2014
Payment & Rights: $50.00 USD and two copies of the published book upon publication. Contributors retain the rights to their work, although the editor requests the courtesy of authors not republishing their work until at least 6 months after the publication of this anthology

IN VIKINGS' ARMS is open to all authors.

Editor/Author Delilah Devlin is looking for historically-themed stories—centered around the Northmen—for a romantic erotica anthology tentatively entitled IN VIKINGS' ARMS: Erotic Romance for Women.

Let your fantasies run wild to a time when men wearing bear shirts and conical helms captured fierce maiden's hearts! Don't feel you have to restrict your imaginings to any particular era or region—dream about the Rus who served in the Byzantine Varangian Guard; the Northmen bent on plunder for wealth and slaves; Vikings who traded with civilizations as far-flung as Persia; and those intrepid men who settled northern Europe (remember, they founded the city of Dublin!), Iceland, Greenland, and even North America. A few time-travel stories may be considered. And light paranormal is also acceptable.

Delilah will be looking for stories rich in sensory detail that explore women's forbidden desires. For example, a Viking enters a British keep seeking gold and a comely slave. The lady's journey might lead her on a rough sea voyage in a longboat to a cold foreign land. He's expecting a servant; she's determined to make the best of her plight, and despite his fierce appearance and rough ways, she seduces him... Imagine what happens next...

IN VIKINGS' ARMS will seek stories to satisfy the reader who craves the romantic idea of that hard but questing man while exploring stories set in the Dark Ages. Traditional themes/tropes can be used, but writers are encouraged to create tales that surprise. Delilah seeks unique stories from authors with strong voices, and above all, she's looking to be seduced by tales filled with vivid imagery and passion.

Published authors with an established historical world may use that setting for their original short story.

Keeping in mind that this volume is targeted at women, the editor seeks mainly hetero stories, but will consider bisexual or lesbian encounters and polyamorous relationships. This is erotic romance, so don't hold back on the heat. Stories can be vanilla or filled with kink, but don't miss describing the connection between strong-willed individuals learning to trust and love one another. Keep in mind there must be a romantic element with a happy-for-now or happy-ever-after ending. Strong plots, engaging characters, and unique twists are the ultimate goal. Please no reprints. These must be original stories.

How to submit: Prepare your 2,500 to 5,000 words story in a double-spaced, Arial, 12 point, black font Word document with pages numbered (.doc, NOT.docx) OR rich text format. Indent the first line of each paragraph half an inch and double space (regular double spacing, do not add extra lines between paragraphs or do any other irregular spacing). US grammar (double quotation marks around dialogue, etc.) is required.

In your document at the top left of the page, include your legal name (and pseudonym, if applicable), mailing address, and 50 words or less bio in the third person, and send to invikingsarms@gmail.com. If you are using a pseudonym, please provide your real name and pseudonym and make it clear which one you'd like to be credited as. Authors may submit up to 2 stories. Delilah hopes to respond with decisions in November 2014. The publisher has final approval over the stories included in the manuscript.

Payment will be $50.00 USD and two copies of the published book upon publication. Contributors retain the rights to their work, although the editor requests the courtesy of authors not republishing their work until at least 6 months after the publication of this anthology.


Ms. Devlin has published over a hundred twenty stories in multiple sub-genres and lengths with Atria/Strebor, Avon, Berkley, Black Lace, Cleis Press, Ellora's Cave, Grand Central, Kensington, Kindle, Montlake Romance, Running Press, and Samhain Publishing. In Fall 2011, she debuted her first anthology with Cleis Press, GIRLS WHO BITE. Since then, she published SHE SHIFTERS, COWBOY LUST, SMOKIN' HOT FIREFIGHTERS, HIGH OCTANE HEROES, and COWBOY HEAT. HOT HIGHLANDERS AND WILD KNIGHTS releases in Fall 2014.

Direct any questions you have regarding your story or the submission process to Delilah at invikingsarms@gmail.com.

Porn Stars Talk Sex Ed on Sex City!

I was so happy to explore different versions of sex education on this week's Sex City—and with some fantastic guests!

One thing I hope this type of show can do is to throw off stigma and stereotype. That foolish line of thought that purports porn performers to be airheads, fools or unintelligent is so off the mark. Not only are my guests Stoya, jessica drake and Conner Habib brilliant, compassionate, articulate people, but they are just a few. The porn world has a lot to offer—as long was society at large wants to listen.

We CAN'T GET ENOUGH of HOT Erotica!

I think it is fantastic that this excellent collection has come out in the summer. Can't Get Enough (Cleis Press), with a sexy beach escapade on the cover is the perfect hot weather heat up. I imagine there will be little beads of perspiration rolling down chests as readers dive into the sexy works the incomparable Tenille Brown has assembled. And one of those is “Melanie’s Choice” by Medea Mor, which you can take a taste of here. I guarantee...it won't be enough.

Thirty lashes. That’s what she’d get if Steve caught her in the act. Thirty lashes with an implement of his choice, or fifty if she didn’t tell him and he found out anyway. 
Not that Melanie cared. She’d been horny all day. In the morning, she had woken up with her hand between her thighs, stroking herself without even being aware of it. At work, she’d found herself pressing a highlighter between her legs while drawing up her report, squeezing her thigh muscles around it as if it were a cock ready to invade. Neither action had given her any relief. Nor had it been supposed to, because she didn’t have Steve’s permission to come, not without him present. 
They had rules, he and she. Many rules, the most important one being that Melanie wasn’t allowed to orgasm unless Steve had given her permission to do so. Her orgasms belonged to him, he’d informed her when she had first moved in with him, and seeing as he tended to be generous with them, she seldom felt the need to disobey him. 
Today was an exception, though. Fourteen days without Steve had sorely tested her self-control. Sitting alone on their sofa every night, Melanie had realized just how vital his presence was to her well-being, how lost and restless she felt without him there to add structure to her life and push her buttons. 
As his two weeks’ absence had drawn to a close, she’d grown impatient for his return, and now that it was imminent, the anticipation was positively killing her. And so it was that, when she’d gotten home that night and changed into the skimpy schoolgirl uniform he’d told her to wear on the evening of his return (sans underwear, naturally), she’d found herself gravitating to the black box under the TV, which was innocently labeled DVDs but really contained the majority of their not inconsiderable collection of naughty toys. 
She’d resisted the urge at first. She’d told herself that she could hold out a few more hours, until he stepped through the door and had his wicked way with her. She’d told herself that he wouldn’t have kept her on edge for so long unless he was planning something special upon his return, something that would make the long wait worthwhile. But it was no use. She needed the release, and she needed it now.
