I was wondering what to do for Smutathon but have now decided to edit and finish off the novella that I began six years ago and have toyed with on and off over the years, even reading a chapter at the Eroticon slam in 2016. I will now finish it because it deserves to be finished. It changed my life.
Those who have met me will know that, in addition to being into sex and smut, I have a deep love of vintage fashion, and particularly of 50s fashions. This came about through writing smut….really. I had an idea one day of writing a story about a young woman who loved the fashions and style of the 50s , to the extent of living the lifestyle 24/7. So I invented Claire, who is my absolute favourite person of those who have been born from my imagination. Claire is different, she is proud of being different, she finds vintage empowering. And she likes sex. Rough sex. Sex on the back seats of cars. Sex where she sends a man home with a ripped shirt , bloodstained from running her fingernails down his back.
I actually had the idea watching a programme about a woman in her early 20s who lived in the 50s even to the extent of using a Vauxhall Wyvern Series E as her everyday transport. My parents were amazed at the attention to detail with which she had furnished her house. I have no idea what her sex life was like but she inspired the vintage bit of Claire. And the sex bit? Well that came from a Ford publicity shot for the Mark 2 Zodiac. A simple shot of a woman behind the wheel, in a circle dress,,, wearing leather driving gloves. I have a huge glove fetish and my imagination ran wild as I looked at the photograph. I was aroused.
In this way the pieces came together, vintage fashion, classic 50s car, and unbridled eroticism. So, on July 1st, I will put a nice frock on, open the laptop and finally finish this novella.
Claire, I promise I will do you justice. This will be my love letter to you.
