It’s the month of the scary stuff, Halloween month. Stories and prompts all turn to the darker side, bringing us some scary stories, some that feel so real that I shiver when I read them. I have highlighted some of them below, but please make sure to visit Masturbation Monday, Kink of the week and hopefully next week also Wicked Wednesday for some darker stories!
Talking about real, in the last post I shared about my therapy, I talked about disconnecting from my feelings. This is not a good thing, but it was a sign. Sometimes I am very slow with understanding myself, and this time was no difference. It took me some weeks to understand what was ‘wrong’ and what I need, and to be really honest, a visit to my doctor (for physical ailments) confirmed what I knew all along. Yes, a post about this will follow…
For now, let’s concentrate on all the scary sexiness, or is the sexy scariness?
This piece is about sexy writing, and not sexy writing in itself: Realism, by The Other Livvy. I love the issues she addresses here regarding erotic writing and sex scenes, and whether the scenes should be realistic or not. Go read this and leave your thoughts in the comments section.
There were some scary stories for Masturbation Monday this week, and one of those was Cara Thereon’s story, Her body twitched. The idea of being so close to a spider totally freaks me out!
This is only one of the brilliant stories that appeared on Cara’s this week, and in the last couple of weeks. Go read!
Another scary story with a spider in it is An Arachnophobia Nightmare by Aurora Glory. I really had itches all over after I read this!
It’s no secret that I (along with others) am a huge van of Ella Scandal’s writing. It Comes Alive at Night is just another example of the brilliant writer she is!
Eye wrote a beautiful piece, which put a smile on my face, called
An extraordinary ordinary day. I love when she has an ordinary day that is so extraordinary!
There is something incredibly sexy about Annie Savoy’s image ‘Heart‘. I love the way she hold her breasts, but love her pale skin and the color of her underwear matching her skin. Lovely image!
The same goes for LSB’s image ‘Socks‘. At first glance it’s a simple image of socks, but the color of her socks matches so well with her socks, and I love that this image has been taken from above.
When I saw the image ‘Fracture‘ of Accidental Masturbater for the first time, I immediately thought of a Rubik’s cube. I love how that is the first focus, and then you see him. Great image!
