Erotic Lure: Winter 2016 Edition

From Erotica Readers & Writers Association
By Lisabet Sarai

Dear Lascivious Literati,

Welcome to the Winter edition of the Erotica Readers & Writers Association website. Forgive me for the tardiness of this newsletter. (Yes, I'll take a spanking as punishment if you feel that's appropriate...) As you may have heard, ERWA recently experienced a changing of the guard, and we've been a bit busy working out the kinks. (Not that we really want to *get rid* of the kinks...just get them under our control!)

In any case, the Winter edition is now available for your browsing pleasure. As usual, I'll give you a quick peek at all the goodies we've got for you.

The Erotica Gallery features a new cohort of Awesome Authors, each of whom has a sizzling story or book chapter for your delectation. This edition includes luscious lesbian lust, voluptuous voyeurism, breathtaking BDSM, randy role-playing and a merry menage.

(Okay, no more alliteration in this issue.)

We've also got a variety of fantastic fiction by the members of the ERWA Storytime, in moods that range from playful to plaintive.

(Sorry. Should I bend over now?)

Get serious about erotica:

If our Gallery doesn't fully satisfy your hunger for erotic tales, browse through our Books for Sensual Readers pages. We have dozens of suggestions for your next read. Anthology fans should definitely check out the lovingly curated collection by Rose Caraway, THE SEXY LIBRARIAN'S BIG BOOK OF EROTICA. For those who prefer longer work, I recommend Charlotte Stein's outrageous novel THE PROFESSOR. We're also featuring A.N. Roquelaure's new addition to the Beauty saga, BEAUTY'S KINGDOM. That's definitely on *my* TBR list. In erotic romance, my pick for this edition is Beth D. Carter's ALONG CAME MERRIE, full of motorcycles and a sexy menage. We have lots of great LGBTQ books, too. Katie Gilmanton's BLACKMAIL, MY LOVE is a murder mystery deeply steeped in San Francisco gay history, while editor Ily Goyanes serves up a heaping portion of F/F erotica in APPETITES. For those of you who are into self-improvement, we offer lots of self-help and sex-ed books, too--for example, Violet Blue's treatise KISSING: A FIELD GUIDE.

You could spend hours ogling our covers and reading our blurbs. Don't forget to use our affiliate links to buy anything that catches your fancy. Your purchases via Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Kobo or Apple iBooks help support the best free adult site on the web (ERWA, that is).

Read, and dream:

Maybe you're more of the visual type. We've definitely got what you want, in our Adult Movies listings. Gamelink.com has compiled a list of their ten best-selling titles from 2015, including the emotionally intense drama "The Submission of Emma Marx: Boundless" and the over-the-top "My Evil Step-Mother Fucked My Ass - Volume 2". What can I say? Something for everyone! You'll also find Best of 2015 lists for couples porn and big budget flicks, as well as our ever-growing categorized pages of everything from classics to parodies.

Seeing is believing:

Are you into action as opposed to observation? Visit the Sex Toy Playground. You'll find a quick history of sex toys (brought to you by Adam & Eve, who were an important part of that history) plus a round-up on the latest and greatest amorous implements in the Sex Toy Scuttlebutt column. I can't believe how many new toys are designed to work with mobile phones! I personally prefer more traditional offerings, like the Crystal Jelly butt plug. If you act fast, you could win a Womanizer clitoral stimulator from Eden Fantasies!

The Playground also has links to a wide range of informative and fun articles about toys and techniques, and to the very best purveyors of sexual devices.

Do what comes naturally:

Inside the Erotic Mind this month, the topic is obesity and sexuality. Can fat be a turn-on? Read the comments by our fearless contributors, then if you like, add your own. Just click on the Participate link.

There are no taboos:

Erotic authors, I have not forgotten you! The Authors Resources page is brimming with new material. Selena Kitt, who has just taken the helm at ERWA, founded the phenomenally successful Excessica erotica co-operative. She knows what's going on in the erotica publishing world. The current edition includes at least a dozen new calls for submissions, from Excessica, Cleis, JMS Books, Sexy Little Pages and more. Check out Hot Chili Erotica, a new website that pays for erotic stories. Whatever genre, length or style of erotica you pen, you'll find a home for it in our listings. We update them whenever we get new information, by the way, as well as posting new calls to the ERWA blog (http://erotica-readers.blogspot.com). So come back often!

Sell your sexy stuff:

I've by no means exhausted the content on the ERWA site, but I realize I may have exhausted your patience, so I'll stop here. I've got to go anyway--the batteries in my clit vibe have died.

I'll be back in April with another naughty newsletter. Until then, stay sexy!

Lubriciously,
Lisabet
