… And introducing you to Sarah Smith a blogger who was new to me only a few weeks ago, since then she has continued to impress me so I asked her to do my interview slot, now you guys can get to know her too.
- What made you decide to write a sex blog?
I’ve been a huge fan of romance novels and romance writing my entire life. I’ve written a couple of contemporary romance manuscripts, and it’s the most fun I’ve ever had writing. I wanted to mix a bit of erotica with romance storylines, and I figured a blog would be a good format to experiment with that. So far the response has been wonderful! People have been visiting my blog, reading the posts, and leaving such kind comments. It’s been a lovely surprise.
- What’s behind the title of your blog or your blogging “name”?
Haha well, I was kicking around a handful of blog names and couldn’t decide. I left it up to a Twitter poll. “Sarah Writes Smut” was the winner, so I just went with it. And I blog under my real name, so no creative thought required there!
- Describe your blog in a nutshell:
My blog is made up of sexy short stories (less than 10,000 words) and flash fiction (less than 1,000 words). Everything is completely made up, unless stated otherwise. It’s the perfect quick and sexy read when you’re in the mood for some smut.
- How long have you been blogging on this theme?
Not long, just since January. Though I’ve been writing romance for the past couple of years.
- What is your favourite type of adult toy?
Oh gosh, I’m so boring. I have a pretty basic pink vibrator that I break out every once in awhile.
(Well I hope it’s made of a body-safe material like silicone!)
- If you were sent to a desert island (with no power issues) name the 1 adult toy you’d take with you:
Oh wow, great question! I am a sex toy noob though, so my knowledge of them is pretty pitiful! So I think what I would do is ask you to recommend your favorite one and that’s the one I would take with me 😉
What’s your current sexuality? At what age did you realise this was the right ‘fit’ for you?
I’ve always identified as a heterosexual woman and feel very comfortable with that. I noticed that I was attracted to boys when I was about 9 years old, I’d say. I never had a realization moment about it after that though…being attracted to men just always felt natural to me. And I never thought to stray from that feeling because I have always felt satisfied and happy with men.
- What’s your preference – naked or “dressed up” for sex? If dressed up, how so?
Definitely naked. It makes things much easier 😉 But if I had to be dressed up, I’d say naked save for panties. I’ve always liked the idea of a dude being so taken with you that he can’t wait and must have you now, so he just shoves aside the crotch of your panties and goes at it.
- Is there a kink or fantasy you’re yearning to try?
Hmm…maybe this isn’t necessarily a kink or a fantasy, but I would be curious to see how I would fare in a sex challenge. Like, a challenge where you have sex with your partner every day for like a month or something like that. Just to see if we would get sick of it or if it would make me even feistier than normal. Guess there’s only one way to find out!
- Name the fictional being or species you’d most like to have an encounter with:
Okay, so I don’t know if this counts, but I would TOTALLY love to have an encounter with Brandon Sullivan, Michael Fassbender’s character in the movie “Shame.” I know, I know, I’m a terrible person for thinking this because that character is quite disturbed
and unwell and clearly in need of counseling…but at the same time something about him is incredibly attractive to me. And he obviously fucks like a demon–unless he has emotional feelings for someone. But that wouldn’t be a problem because I figure I would just be a rando he’s using to get off. Which would be totally fine with me!
- Anal sex – Meh or Yay?
I’ve never tried it and don’t have any interest honestly. So a hard nay from me!
- Sex needn’t always be serious – do you have a funny moment to share?
Yes! My husband and I have a cat and he’s adorable, but my god is he ever the cockblocker. There have been many times when my husband and I are getting down to business, and the cat has jumped on our bed or on top of one of us mid-coitus. Like, he will be sleeping on the couch or a chair for hours, and the moment we get up to messing around, he’s up and wants attention. It can be quite the mood killer. So now we’re diligent about making sure the door is closed AND latched when we want some alone time!
- Sexting – love it or hate it?
Love it! But I’ve only ever done it in a committed relationship with someone I trust. I would never feel comfortable doing it with a stranger or someone I don’t know well.
- Which mainstream film depicts your favourite erotic scene?
“Blue Valentine.” That was such an emotionally charged movie and I’ve only watched it once because it was just so believably painful in so many parts. There’s a flashback in the movie where you see Dean and Cindy when they’re younger and Dean is going down on Cindy. It happens toward the end of the movie, I think, when you’re witnessing how horribly everything unfolds between them. But in that moment you see how very sweet and loving things used to be for them. I adore that scene because it shows how in love they are. It’s showcasing Cindy’s pleasure, and also Dean’s in a way. It clearly makes him happy to please her and he’s prioritizing her physical pleasure before his own, which I think is an important thing that’s not often highlighted in movies.
- Do you watch porn?
Here I go again being super vanilla, but no, I don’t. I’ve watched it before and I just can’t get into it. I honestly prefer to read something, as strange as that may sound. Believe it or not, I’ve had great luck with the Sex Stories subreddit of Reddit! You have to do some digging, but you can find some captivating, well-written true life accounts on there that are super hot and very enjoyable.
- Nominate your favourite adult film:
I’ve never seen one that I like! Is it cheating to list a regular movie that just has a ton of sex in it? The movie “Love” by Gaspar Noe is insane with the amount of sex it includes. My jaw was on the floor most of the time while I watched it, it looked so real to me.
- Before you go, please tell us 1 adult blog (aside from yours) which we must add to our reading list:
Stefanie Simpson’s blog Short and Dirty is amazing. She is such a gifted author who paints the perfect romantic and erotic scenarios in her blog stories. She’s not afraid to get down and dirty while at the same time keeping emotion and romance at the forefront. You’re sucked right in from the first sentence.
Also, her contemporary British romance novels are the absolute best. I would recommend them to any romance or smut lover!
Thank you so much for sharing your more ‘private’ side with me and my Dark Darlings!
