Week in Review
These are just a few of my Provocative Picks for the week. As the weather grows chillier and the writing prompts appear to be doing the same, I’ve opted to highlight a few pieces that were less ‘ghoulish’ this week. (What can I say…I’m not ready for Halloween!) Still, I hope you’ll enjoy these naughty treats as much as I did.
Lewd Lines and Prompted Prose
■ And Pause by (@SteeledSnake) – Flash non/fiction (?)
I’ll admit, I’m not sure if this work (previously posted at Wicked Wednesday, hosted by Marie Rebelle) is factual or fictional. However, I do know that it depicts all manner of wonderful dynamics one might feel at the hands—or mouth—of a sexually dominant partner. Writing as the ‘s’ aspect of a married D/s duo, Steeled Snake does a great job of describing the anticipation that exists in the moments ‘in between’, the ebb and flow of a sexy energy exchange, and the profound intimacy found in such an connection. You’ll enjoy this titillating bit of prose written from the male perspective.
■ Mona Lisa Smile by kisungura (@kisungura) – Micro fiction (55-word)
Being as I often write 55-word stories, it behooves me to feature a fellow tiny-tale writer. Kisungura took what could have been interpreted as a creepy meme image (again, courtesy of Friday Flash) and turned it into something poignantly poetic in its description of woman isolated by perfectionism. I really enjoyed these lines. She demonstrates such finesse working with small word-counts.
■ Stone Cold by Elliott Henry (@elliotthenry36) – Micro fiction (55-word)
Here’s another tiny tale that grabbed my attention this week at Friday Flash. Elliott packed a lot of meaning and eroticism into so few words, which is what makes this micro story so great. He started with a bang, packed the middle with words that conveyed the ‘hotness’ behind the kink at hand (sorry, pun intended), and ended it all on the perfect note. This is a solid example of a well-written, sexy micro story.

Eroticism in Art
- Artist: Cata Gellen | Image Source: Instagram
Cata Gellen is a self-taught illustrator and graphic designer who resides in Madrid, Spain. His collection of erotic art, which he calls ‘Erotic Stories,’ showcases his use of line or organic shapes to capture impressions of the human form in sexual and intimate situations.
Gellen’s bold use of positive and negative space manipulates light and shadow in a way that gives minimal information, yet provides more than enough input for viewers to interpret his subjects in all their romantic and/or sexual splendor. To see more of his work, visit him on Instagram at @cgellen.
This artist was brought to my attention on Sakuranbo Daruma’s (@SakuranboDaruma) Twitter timeline.
