Shibari – Japanese rope bondage – is an unendingly popular form of kink, and these two workshops run by Sacred Pleasures‘ resident rope geek, Santiago Genochio, consistently sell out – so book early. The first day is for beginners, the second for those who have already attended one of Santi’s beginners’ days. Or you can

Toy Preview: Luna by Lelo vs Lula by ElectraStim

There are many different names for what Anastasia in Fifty Shades called ‘Jiggle balls’, such as Ben Wa balls, Geisha balls, Kegel balls/exercisers, love eggs, silver balls and orgasm balls. Dr Arnold Henry Kegel’s publications gave us the terms Kegel exercises and Kegel exerciser. Kegel exercises are now the recommended way to improve a range

I love me some Sommer Marsden. I haven’t yet read a book of hers that I haven’t liked, and this one is no exception. The Accidental Cougar tells the story of Abby, an early-forties woman who’s just come out of a twenty-plus-year marriage and is just learning how to cope with the huge change to her life.

Why do kink when you can do ‘Ecstatic BDSM’?

The workshop provides a comprehensive introduction to Ecstatic BDSM – sometimes also called ‘conscious kink’ – for anyone with any level of

Book Review: Black Dog (Bannon’s Gym) by Cat Grant

Black Dog is book one in Cat Grant’s Bannon’s Gym series, and based on this, I’ll definitely be checking out the rest of the books. This is gay erotic romance with some serious testosterone – and I’m not just talking about in the bedroom. This book tells the story of Danny Bannon and Eddie Roscoe – two guys

Books: Devil’s Game by Joanna Wylde

Devil’s Game is the third book in the Reapers MC series by Joanna Wylde, and I’m still enjoying it very much, and looking forward to the next book. This book does actually repeat quite a bit of the previous book, but from a different respective, which was a shame, really. Having said that, it did allow

Books: Smokin’ Hot Firemen by Delilah Devlin (ed.)

I’m a sucker for a man in uniform, and although military uniforms are my preference, I also wouldn’t turn down a hunky fireman 😉 Sadly, in real life they’re few and far between, but between the pages of this sexy anthology, hunks are plentiful – hurrah! Edited by Delilah Devlin, and containing stories from popular

Toy Review: Cara Sutra’s Beginners Bondage Kit

I recently read a piece in a national newspaper by a well-known columnist, which was a positive review of a new novel. The praise may have been well-deserved, but it was only when I scrolled down to the Comments section that it became apparent that the columnist and author were great friends – something readers

Books: The Saint by Tiffany Reisz

I deliberately left it a day or so after finishing this book to write my review, because I was trying to figure out why I didn’t enjoy it as much as the other titles in The Original Sinners series. I finally came to my conclusion, so here’s my review. If you haven’t read any of the other

Books: The Last Good Knight #5 The Last Good Night by Tiffany Reisz

The fifth and final section of The Last Good Knight novella,The Last Good Night (yes, without the K) wraps up the action very nicely. If you haven’t read the previous four sections of this novella, I wouldn’t recommend continuing to check out this review, as there will be inevitable spoilers. You have been warned… Nora is in a

Books: The Last Good Knight #4 Fit To Be Tied by Tiffany Reisz

Fit to Be Tied is part four of Tiffany Reisz’s The Last Good Knight novella, which is available either in separate parts or as one book. If you haven’t read the previous three books, I don’t advise reading this review as there will inevitably be spoilers. You’ve been warned  With the mysterious attacker caught, Nora and her fellow

Books: The Last Good Knight #3 The Games Destiny Plays by Tiffany Reisz

The Games Destiny Plays is part three of The Last Good Knight five-part story by Tiffany Reisz.

Books: The Last Good Knight #2 Sore Spots by Tiffany Reisz

Sore Spots is part two of The Last Good Knight novella, which is available in five parts, or as one novella. I can’t really review this without giving spoilers to those who haven’t read the first part – so I’ll have to say, if you haven’t read part one, don’t continue reading this review! You’ve been warned  After

Books: The Last Good Knight #1 Scars and Stripes by Tiffany Reisz

The Last Good Knight is a novella told in five parts, but I believe you can also buy the parts in a single book, too. This first book, Scars and Stripes, is a tale of Mistress Nora that fills in some of the blanks of what happens when she leaves Soren. At the 8th Circle, the underground

Books: Break Me In

Break Me In is book three in the Geek Kink series by Sara Brookes. I really enjoyed the first two, and love the premise, so I was eager to get my hands on this third instalment. I’m glad to say I wasn’t disappointed. Break Me In tells the story of Elena and Alex. Elena is a Domme who is

Books: Best Lesbian Romance 2013

This anthology from Cleis Press, edited by Radclyffe, contains stories from Cheyenne Blue, Andrea Dale, Charlotte Dare, Sacchi Green, Anna Meadows, Delilah Devlin and Radclyffe, to name just a few. As the title suggests, it’s a book of lesbian romance tales, but this isn’t mainstream romance. Not all of the tales have erotic content or

Toy Review: Tingly Timmy e-stim Rabbit by MyStim

Family-run business MyStim is fast becoming one of Cliterati’s favourite companies thanks to its humorous product names and its determination to challenge established preconceptions of sex toy design. Originally a manufacturer for medical electrical stimulation merchandise used in physiotherapy and pain management, as the years passed the realisation dawned that not all customers were using

Toy Review: Electrastim Flick Duo Stimulation Multi-Pack EM80

In Cliterati’s local adult shop the electro-sex section is in the dungeon-themed area, which is rather misleading as electro-sex isn’t necessarily about pain. In fact, it’s about increasing pleasure. This can mean longer, more intense orgasms (especially if you play with bringing yourself back from the brink time and again), and improved sensation. Imagine your

Books: Misbehaving

Misbehaving is a Cosmo Red-Hot Read, written by Tiffany Reisz of Original Sinners fame. It’s a novella, which is also a retelling of Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing. Being somewhat clueless when it comes to the bard, I just read this novella and took it on its own merit. It tells the story of Beatriz, a woman who has

Books: Misconduct

I’ve adored all of Lily Harlem’s Hot Ice books so far, andMisconduct, the sixth in the series, is definitely no exception. Lily very skilfully tells each story about the Orlando Vipers as a standalone, but with other characters having cameos, meaning you don’t have to have read the previous books for the next to make sense, but

Books: Reaper’s Legacy

Reaper’s Legacy is book two in Joanna Wylde’s Reapers Motorcycle Club series. The first book, Reaper’s Property, was a runaway success, and based on this second volume, it was definitely not a one-off. I’ve already pre-ordered the third book! This novel tells the story of Sophie Williams, a young woman who, eight years ago, gave her virginity to Zach
