It’s February, my Dark Darlings, and with the new month comes a new interview with a prolific and talented writer of erotic fiction. Through Dr. J’s participation in the weekly memes of #WickedWednesday and #MasturbationMonday I quickly discovered that she crafts stories I love to read. Then I found the SistersinSmut – nine like-minded writers who blog as a co-operative. Read my interview to find out more about what sparks her interest.
What made you decide to write on an adult/erotic theme?
After nearly 40 years in my professional life as a sex educator and therapist, it was a way to keep teaching. I had taught about the research on fantasies, and when I left the college classroom, my students said I had to keep going, that I told good stories. Writing erotic fiction had never been on my radar until then. So, two years into retirement, I went for it. That was three years ago.
What draws you to the blogs you follow?
I love creativity in all forms. Blogs that show me a different take on a topic are the ones I follow.
List 5 words you use to search for the content you want to read/view
Don’t laugh, but that’s not what I do. I go to places where other people curate content and I peek in there. That’s why memes like Masturbation Monday, Wicked Wednesday, and Friday Flash are unique. It combines the location and the creativity of a topic. People are passionate about what they write. I love that energy.
What is your favourite type of adult toy?
Hands down, or hands on the Magic Wand!
If you were sent to a desert island (with no power issues) name the adult item or film or book you’d take with you:
What’s your current sexuality? At what age did you realise this was the right ‘fit’ for you?
Heterosexual. It was an early on clarification in my life. I couldn’t tear my eyes off the hunky lifeguard at our local pool. The fantasies I created with him, phew. I can still pull them up today.
What’s your preference – naked or “dressed up” for sex? If dressed up, how so?
Naked, but with jewellery.
Is there a kink or fantasy you’re yearning to try?
Nothing pops to mind, but if it did, I have a willing partner.
Name a pivotal moment in your youth which may have set the path for your sex life:
Oh, Posy, this is a great sex history question. When I was in the 5th grade my cousin from Canada sent me a short wool skirt and vest she had outgrown. I loved it and couldn’t wait to wear it to school. The day I did, we watched a film. This activity meant moving the desks, and I ended up sitting next to the new student. In the dark, he told me he liked the skirt and touched the fabric. His hand slipped down to my naked thigh (I was wearing knee socks) and the sensation that flew through my body riveted me. As I write these words, I can still experience the muscle/emotional memory. Yes! In that moment I appreciated my body’s response and kept looking for it.
You’re going to a party – if you could pick 5 ideal guests (living or dead) to meet and party with, who would they be? Expand a little on why you chose them:
I would make it a sex theme group, no surprise. I’d want a dinner discussion to start.
Cora Crane, wife of author Stephen Crane. She was a businesswoman, writer and bordello owner where I live.
Margaret Sanger founder of Planned Parenthood
Phil Harvey owner of Adam and Eve (my former employer)
Plato Let’s discuss homosexuality
Anais Nin, I’d have a list of questions about her writing controversies.
Together I’d love to hear about similarities and differences of sex at the time.
What would you choose for your drag queen / burlesque dancer name?
Cherry Sunset (I have red hair!)
Sex needn’t always be serious – do you have a funny moment to share?
You mean like dealing with height difference, me standing on a stool and falling off of it. Not exactly to the climax we were looking for.
Sexting – love it or hate it?
Which mainstream film depicts your favourite erotic scene?
9 1/2 Weeks because of where I was and who I was with when I saw it.
Nominate your favourite “adult” film or book:
The Siren Tiffany Reisz
Before you go, please advise us 1 sex blog which we should add to our reading list:
I must toot the horn for the Sisters In Smut Blog. It highlights sex-positive erotica, friendship, and craft. Nine of us form the group and the combined energy is pretty special.
Thank you so much for sharing your more ‘private’ side with me and my Dark Darlings!
