Many years ago, in a student bar, a friend asked a strange question “Why do you have to transport your body when you want to go anywhere?” We laughed. I mean, the answer … Continue reading Out of Body Experiences
I guess most of us have had the experience of meeting people in real life they originally encountered online. Many of these encounters can be big disappointments. Others can be more unusual. Some can be fantasies…….like this chance meeting with sex writer Anna Sansom. Anna came to me out of the mist. I was tired and lost, resting on a grassy knoll, and munching what … Continue reading Desire Lines
I am now at home with prosecco and not feeling the drop. I had a fun weekend and if 12 hours writing seemed daunting I did get 8 posts written and my idea, to do a series of short stories each with the title of the Small Faces album Ogdens Nut Gone Flake turned out to be a source of inspiration.

Was it really a week ago that I walked out of the Grafton pub into a horrible night feeling the famed Eroticon drop? In truth the drop only lasted until I tucked ravenously into a pasty at Euston. On the train home I felt tired but elated. Eroticon just gets better and better. I have needed a week to take it all in and reflect … Continue reading Ten Great Eroticon Moments 2017
I’ll start with a disclaimer. This is not a finished piece of analysis but rather a few things that have come into my head, a sort of thinking aloud if you like. I am very interested to hear other people’s thoughts. It happened a while ago that a blogger and sex worker who had separate blogging and working names that she was clearly determined to … Continue reading What’s In A Name?
