Week in Review
The week has come to an end so soon, and I find myself scrambling to select only a few great works to highlight, despite all the wonderfully talented writers and bloggers who make magic everyday.
I played around with the concept of using red as a visual theme for my second attempt at #SoSS. It made finding images a bit more challenging, which also made it fun. Still, the execution needs a bit of work. Oh, well…baby steps, right? Here are this week’s Provocative Picks.
Lewd Lines and Prompted Prose
■ Barefoot and Bitless by May More (@more_matters) – Flash fiction
A good piece of fiction is a good piece of fiction…despite how grimy and uncomfortable it might make the reader feel, perhaps even because of it. Ms. More takes advantage of the more permissive nature of erotica and alters the expected ‘rules of engagement’ by taking the reader on a depraved sexual journey that is riveting in its disturbing beauty.
Dirty by Jo (@TeachersHaveSex) – Flash fiction
This little nugget of ‘earthy’ goodness was a pleasant surprise. The author isn’t someone who was on my radar, but I got a hankering to pop-over to her site WordPress site, TeachersHaveSex, because the name intrigued me. (I’m sure I’m not the only one.) Well, the steamy, kinky flash fiction story I found there did not disappoint.
■ Winter Judy Notes 102 by Pete Symes (@symes4u) – Micro fiction/Flash fiction
Pete Symes is a prolific writer (and frenetic drawer) whose wit never fails to entertain me. I particularly liked this micro vignette as it not only represents an aspect of short-form fiction, but it’s also quiet poetic in its erotic depiction.
■ S. A. Harper (@wordoysterpress) – question, nasty
■ Kisungura (@kisungura) – upstairs,
■ Kilted Wookie (@Kilted_Wookie) – upstairs, tasty, dirty
■ Cal (@uncmfrtblynmb) – nasty
■ His little badass (@princesspain4) – nasty
■ Haiku (@19syllables) – upstairs
■ A guy in panties (@Aguyinpanties) – ladylike
#ThursTale = ‘intimacy/isolation’

Eroticism in Art
Steven Stahlberg is a freelancer and full-time employed lead artist with over 25 years experience in analog and digital as well as 2D and 3D illustration. He currently resides in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. This particular image is a mix of two of my favorite things—sex and Sci-Fi. What’s not to geek out over?!

Propagating Sexual Intelligence
I’m curious…do any of you erotica writers out there find that yourselves writing orgasms for your female characters in the same way?
I typically write clitoral or vaginal orgasms for my lusty female characters and wanted to switch things up a bit. What ensued was a search for all the types of female orgasms that might possibly exist. One of several search results was the infographic below written by sexologist Dr. Tanginika Simone Cuascud.
(However you choose to use the information…you’re welcome.)
