Erotic Lure Newsletter: October 2013

From Erotica Readers & Writers Association
By Ashley Lister

 There once was a man who wrote verse
He rhymed stuff so bad some would curse
His friend Lisabet (uh)
Asked him to write a newsletter
And then things went from bad to worse


My name is Ashley Lister. I’m covering the Erotic Lure newsletter for Lisabet this month whilst she goes gallivanting on her nefarious travels. I’m hoping she updates us all with pictures, streaming video or at least salacious tales of her incredible adventures.

This month here at ERWA we doff our caps to Halloween, as evidenced by the supernatural bent in the exemplary stories found in this month’s gallery.  Or, to say that in verse:
If you like to read sexy sweet shorts
Tales of friction in fiction so fraught
Visit the gallery
And there you will see
The theme this month’s ‘La Petite Mort’

Books you say? What about Books for sensual readers? What a timely question! I’m so glad you asked.

As always, there are plenty to choose from. Purchasing those books through the Amazon links on these pages helps ERWA to provide a consistently superlative service to readers and writers alike.

We’ve read books aimed at everyone’s kinks
From cool cougars to maddening minx
If you want these pages
To help with our wages
Buy your books through our Amazon links

Have you written something? Or do you fancy joining the glamorous world of the published authors? Then check out our calls for submission this month and see if there’s a niche you might be able to fill. (NB – Ashley, insert a joke here about filling a niche, use a clever double entendre).

If you’ve written a one-handed read
And you typed till your fingers did bleed
You have our permission
To view the calls for submission
You’ll find everything there you might need.

As a writer I’ve always considered “Inside the Erotic Mind” to be an invaluable resource.  Being able to glean honest insights into how others approach sex, sexual reactions and sexual responsiveness is extremely helpful and interesting. Or, saying that in limerick form:

Our writers are terribly kind
And here, on these pages, you’ll find
There’s words of wisdom
About how best to come
Click into our erotic mind


Describe Your Orgasm: How Does it Feel? Don't be Shy...

Words are good. Stories can be entertaining. But sometimes we just need a plastic companion.  Now I’ve written a couple of narrative poems in this milieu but I won’t bore you with those details here. Instead, I’ll say this:

In all of my travels I’ve found
That there’s people I like being around
But when they’re away
And I’m wanting to pay
I must visit the Sex Toy Playground

What about films? ERWA is about all things erotic, whether that’s words, toys or films. On a cautionary note, here’s a verse about erotic films and why it’s important to watch them on Blu-Ray, DVD or at least a streaming download.

The saucy things we like to see
Are best watched from a DVD
Cos’ the multiplex staff
Will just point and laugh
At least, that was what happened to me

Right, tidying up loose ends here. As always, thanks to all those hard at work behind the scenes at ERWA who have made this resource possible. I was saying to a colleague last week that it would be hard to imagine a world without ERWA. It really is unlike any other writing resource in the world. I could name names here and discuss the hard work invested by each member of the group, but I’d likely mess up and miss out on someone important. Instead, I’ll be glib and end with a poem.

Thank you for reading this, member
There’s one more thing you should remember
Whilst I loved writing these poems
I’m now going ho-em
Lisabet will be back in November
