Book Burning in the Digital Age

October 13, 2013

A crusade is reignited and a new witch hunt has begun. As the past has always indicated to us, yet again it’s the weak who shall suffer and the strong who proper, regardless of the intents of the morally indignatious. If you’re not aware, the media, abetted by a violent thriller writer, has taken up the torch of harassing Amazon into cracking down upon “lewd” content. This time, however, [...]

Making Readers Feel…

September 30, 2013

When I was younger, there was one song that I absolutely loved and identified with. It was actually from a movie, a Kevin Smith movie, no less. It was called “Alive” and was belted with such emotion by Joey Lauren Adams. The ballad is absolutely beautiful, I think, but the chorus is what really stuck with me: And I want to feel passion I want to feel pain I want to weep at the sound of your [...]

Themes in Scifi / Fantasy

September 25, 2013

One of the things that Joshua and I love doing is discussing themes and characters from our favourite entertainment. We went to see Elysium a couple of weeks back, and the next 24-48 hours was a joy of discussing the underlying themes (the division of rich and poor, of classism and how it relates to our society.) Our friend then saw it and we got to discuss its believability and potential flaws. [...]

Horror, Inspiration and a Review of Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs

September 13, 2013

What follows is something of my thoughts on inspiration but mostly a review of Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs: One of my favourite genres to write in is horror. The macabre, the creepy, the gross and disgusting. That’s not to mention the more cosmic-horror of a Lovecraftian bent. For inspiration I don’t go to other horror writers. As a general rule I just don’t look to other writers for [...]

Weak Characters

August 25, 2013

Some people think that Cassidy, the female lead from Bound as the World Burns is dumb. An airhead. I mean, the apocalypse is here, right? Why isn’t she out there, kicking some ass? And I just have to boggle at that mindset. The story is this: Cassidy is an 18 year old girl who has been living with her two parents. She’s an only child who excelled in history and English, but didn’t enjoy [...]

Happily Ever Afters

August 23, 2013

Some people want romances to always have a happily ever after. I can get that, get behind it even, but that’s not what I want. I want the characters to be real, and I want them to have problems they don’t always overcome. I want them to love each other, even though they know it can’t last. Won’t last. I love when they know how wrong they are together, but they can’t help it. I realized [...]

Why Can’t I Find Porn on Tumblr?

July 19, 2013

This week there was a rather huge change to how Tumblr interacts with search engines, and how its own internal search engine works. And neither change is good for those of you looking for adult material. Right now, Tumblr has three settings. Safe for Work, Not Safe for Work, and Adult. That hasn’t changed, but how it treats those three blog types has: No longer can you switch between your [...]

Sex in the Media

May 21, 2013

St. John’s, Newfoundland, hosted our first annual Risque Sex Expo earlier this month. We were invited to speak on our erotic works, and give some erotic storytelling over the two days. Needless to say, we were thrilled to be involved in such an awesome, positive, adult event. It was a sex positive venue that recognized our adult desires for sex and companionship. A lot of people have children [...]

Fetlife Brings Back Issue of Paypal Erotica Censorship

February 10, 2013

Fetlife is no longer allowed* hosting incest, zoophilia or scat.** It doesn’t matter if it’s consensual, and between two adults. It doesn’t matter if it’s fantasy. It doesn’t matter if they’re just idle desires that no one would act out on. On their announcement notice, they say: From all the research we’ve done over the past two weeks, the Big 4 no-no’s [...]

Obscenity Laws and Erotica

January 16, 2013

Obscenity laws are disgusting. In fact, over all, just the judgemental nature of other people disgusts me. Even in the fetish communities, or erotica publishers, or places where people with kinks congregate, you will always stumble upon someone who will be absolutely disgusted at your kink or fetish or erotica and wish to publicly and loudly deride it. There is no connection to them in defending [...]

Popular Erotica

January 9, 2013

It was recently recommended to me to read 50 Shades of Grey, and while I was hesitant the way I always am about popular books, I started in. The first thing that struck me was just how conversational in tone it is. It is written in first person (which is another reason I’d never planned to read it – I hate most first person fiction), but it’s something more than that. It’s [...]

Taboo Erotica

October 29, 2012

I’ve been exploring my sexuality since I was a six year old girl, when I first stumbled upon my father’s Playboys. The first thing I did when I got the Internet was start looking up pornography – specifically hentai, since I loved Sailor Moon at the time. I also read a lot – fiction and non-fiction – that focused frequently on taboo topics – V.C. Andrews is [...]
