Reading at KGB Bar Tonight!

Yep, that's right--Tonight!

Yes, you're right, I'm irresponsible.  Correct again, I should have done this a long time ago.  Well, better late than never, that's what I always say...

OK, OK, so don't hold it against me.  But, if you happen to read this before 7:00 tonight (12/16/10) and you happen to be in New York City, and you don't have any pressing plans, you should stop by KGB Bar.  It's the Best Lesbian Erotica annual reading and I'll be reading my story, "Walk Like a Man."

Check out the link for the particulars of this evening's festivities and, as always, be there or be square.

A Toy Review

So, the nice people at asked me if I might like to experience their toys firsthand and then blog about my findings.  Who am I to turn down such a generous offer?  I LOVE toys, especially adult toys!  I’ve loved toys since I was a very small child—just not the same kind of toys…

They asked me what type of toy I might like and after hours and hours of thought, (yeah, right…) I decided on anal toys and specifically the High Intensity Vibro Tease Vibrating Anal Plug.  

Actually, I’d been perusing the butt plugs on their site for a while and lusting after that particular toy. I was really excited that they agreed to give it to me.

I’m a fan of anal plugs and have quite a collection of them (go figure…).  Some are for me and some are for my boy.  This one is definitely for me!  (My boy’s tender bottom would really enjoy it but, I’m not sharing.)  It’s made of a beautiful transparent-blue jelly-like material.  It’s soft, but not too soft and shiny-slick and it comes with it’s own waterproof vibrating bullet.  One of the best things about the bullet is that it takes one triple-A battery, instead of the usual hearing aid cylinders that die so quickly—if you know what I mean.  This one goes on and on and on, pretty much as long as you want it to.  I gave it a good long test, you know, just to be sure it would last, you know, in case someone wanted it use it continuously for, say—a while… 

Trust me, it lasts, and the vibrations don’t decrease in power.

The Vibro Tease is aptly named; it is a tease.  Even first timers would be able to use it with no problem.  It’s not very big around and it’s so smooth and slick, that once lubed up, it just slides right in.  Press the soft touch button on the end of the bullet and a very quiet, very sweet vibration is delivered to just the right spot. 

Sometimes you want something that’s small and gentle.  You don’t have to be a size queen ALL the time!  Like I said, it’s a tease.  But if you’re looking for a large or powerful toy, this isn’t it.  It’s cool for DP, too.  How do I know, you ask?  A lady never tells. 

My only complaint is that while the toy has a very large base, it doesn’t have a narrow neck, so it slips out easily. It’s not a toy you can insert and then walk around with.  I had to use my bed as a backstop to keep it where I wanted it, but that wasn’t such a bad thing.  Hey, next time, maybe I’ll get comfortable and read one of my books.  Actually, yeah… that’s a great idea!

Passion Reading at Word in Brooklyn

Last Thursday, my friend Donna George Storey was in town from the West Coast.  She'd come to read her story in Rachel Kramer Bussel's new erotic romance anthology, Passion.  We made plans to meet up in the city, earlier that day.

Emerald, another friend and author (Actually, I'd only met Emerald on one previous occasion, almost two years ago at Rachel's In the Flesh, and hadn't had the chance to get to know her.  But now, we really are friends!) was in town to read also.  Robin, another friend, had come in from Connecticut to support Donna and Emerald.

They spent the day at the Museum of Sex and I joined them later in the afternoon at Donna's sister's in Manhattan for wine and cheese before heading out to the reading, back in Brooklyn.

Although it was Veteran's day, there was a lot more rush hour traffic than I'd anticipated and our cab had a hell of a time trying to get over the Williamsburg Bridge, but we finally made it to Word, only a few minutes late.  And as anyone who has attended a reading knows, it didn't start on time, anyway.  So we were there in plenty of time!

There were a few other readers there, including Rachel and the reading went very well.  Passion promises to be a real hit and I thoroughly enjoyed listening to Donna and Emerald, as well as the other readers.
Donna George Storey                                                   


It happened to be Rachel's birthday (well, actually, her birthday was a few days earlier...) and I got to tag along with Donna and Emerald to her birthday dinner at Anella, a really lovely restaurant in Greenpoint, Brooklyn.  This bread was wonderful!  It's their signature item and is baked in a flower pot.  Unfortunately, the restaurant is way too dark for my taste and isn't at all conducive to photography, so this is the best I could do.  (If you click on the restaurant link, you'll get a much better picture.)

The food was really excellent, as was the waiter, unfortunately, the server was a bit over-zealous for my taste.  The space is very small, but the food is well worth any discomfort.  I do wish they'd turn up the light a bit, though.  Personally, I like being able to read the menu and see my food, especially when it's so well prepared and plated.

It was great to see Donna again.  She doesn't make it to New York nearly often enough for my taste and it was great getting to know Emerald better!

I called for three separate cars to get people back to Manhattan from the restaurant (So many Manhattanites are so lost in Brooklyn...).  Of course one of them was for me because, even though I live in Brooklyn, I don't live anywhere near the restaurant and none of the subway lines in the area would get me home remotely easily...  All I can say is Arecibo, my go-to car service, rocks!

And don't forget to keep following the Spank! Blog Tour

Spank! Blog Tour Kicks Off

On Septmeber 15th, my new anthology, Spank! will be released by Logical Lust Publications and today kicks off a twenty-one-day-long blog tour.  (A little later in the post, I’ll publish the schedule, with addresses.)

I’ve told people to write about whatever they want, so I’ve no idea what they’ll talk about.  It should be interesting to follow along.  I’m pretty sure there’ll be a few excerpts posted.  Maybe some pictures, too.

            What kind of pictures???
            I’m sure I don’t know…

But what are you going to get from me?  Well, I’m winging it so, here goes nothin’:

Most people know me as a domme or a top.  That means I spank—I don’t get spanked—usually.  Last month I attended a really cool BDSM convention called Floating World.  I went to several workshops and learned some nifty, new things.  I spent a few hours enthralled by one of my absolute idols.  I chatted with the likes of Cecilia Tan and Laura Antoniou.  I bought a new corset—one that is just a little steampunk—for later.  I played in the humongous dungeon (man, they had some furniture I’ve been lusting after for years…) and then…

And then…  I allowed myself to be flogged (because it’s a great form of massage and I really needed a massage) and then—wait for it—caned.  It’s not something I usually allow, but sometimes it’s exactly what’s needed. 

I’m not into pain; I’m not into being spanked, but I am into sensation.  And let me tell you, that light caning felt wonderful.  It was exactly what I needed to relax away all my tension and stress.  It wasn’t the kind of caning that leaves bruises, not like the one I’d given earlier in the night; it was the kind of caning that got me ready for a really good night’s sleep.  What can I say?

My story, in Spank!, actually fits in with this post.  I swear, I didn’t know where I was going when I sat down to write—seriously—so it’s serendipitious.  Here’s a brief excerpt:

Richard’s Reward

Richard made her wet; there was no getting around that.  The act of spanking him, first with her hand and then with leather, could become a religious experience.  The scent of his arousal, the sight of his marks, and the feel when she ran her fingers lightly over them, could almost cause her to climax, at times.  

She brought the strap down again, just above the first stroke, and he bounced against the bed and grunted.  Quickly she gave him a third just below the original stroke.  This time he cried out.

Suzanne gazed at the three perfect red stripes on his rosy bottom and ran her fingertips over them lightly.  She heard him wince.

“Please, please, please,” he moaned.

“Open your legs for me,” she said.  She reached between them and fondled and massaged his balls until he groaned and sighed.  “Just three more now.  Are you ready?”

“Please, please, please,” he whispered.

“Please what, Richard?  I’m waiting.  You need to tell me to finish your spanking.”



“Please, Suzanne, please finish my spanking,” he groaned.

“All right then, if that’s what you want…  Close your legs for me now; we wouldn’t want any accidents.”

Suzanne quickly finished up with a vertical stroke on each side and a final stroke across his sweet spot.  The last stoke wrenched a scream from him and he was actively crying when she put the strap down and gathered him into her arms.  He came willingly and buried his face against her neck.

Suzanne sat next to him on the side of the bed, gently rocking and holding him close. Although shaking with sobs, she could tell he was much calmer than when he had arrived.  A good spanking tended to relax him and relieve his stress.  This particular spanking would, hopefully, keep him stress-free for most of the coming week. 

She handed him a box of tissues and waited until he regained his composure.

            This is just a small excerpt taken from somewhere in the middle of the story.  Read it all in Spank!  Available in ebook and print on September 15th.  You can find it at most sales venues, including Amazon, or perhaps you’d like to buy it from Logical Lust, an independent publisher.

And see, spanking’s a stress reliever…  Relieve some stress today!

Author Chat for Like A Sacred Desire: Tales of Sex Magick

I'd love it if you'd come help celebrate the release of the book in Circlet Press's Livejournal Community this coming Sunday August 1st through Saturday August 7th. Several contributors to the anthology will be making posts throughout the week to discuss the book and answer your questions. There will be giveaways and discussions with authors such as David Sklar, Angela Caperton, Jana Denardo, Elizabeth Schechter, and the editor of the anthology, Jennifer Williams, not to mention Yours Truly.

My chat day will be Wednesday, August 4th. Please come by. I've got some questions for you. I do, however, believe in tit for tat (that always sounds dirty, doesn't it?) so ask me anything you like. I'm probably answer. I really have no boundaries. Just sayin'...

Dark Diva Reviews recently had this to say about Like a Sacred Desire:

I could easily see this collection being used in a discussion group on mythology and sexology. Joseph Campbell would have had much to say about the characters and situations found here.

Check out the chat. It starts on Sunday and runs through the 7th. And remember, come by to see me on my day: 8/4/2010.

Buy the book here:

Fictionwise (all formats)

Please Ma'am

I'm excited to say that Please, Ma'am (Rachel Kramer Bussel, ed, Cleis Press) is available on Amazon and if it isn't in bookstores yet, it very soon will be. I've got a story in the book; it's a little odd--a little different than my usual fare, but I hope you'll like it. I really can't wait to get my hands on the book and read the rest of the stories because, well, you know how I feel about fem dom.

I'm also excited because the cover is sooo hot. I mean, this cover just screams at you to take it home.
Seriously, if you're a submissive man, you may need a strategically placed work bag or coat just to make it to the sales counter.
