You’ll meet strong, diverse characters

Book Extract: Standing Tall by Sienna St Cyr, from Silence Is Golden (a Sexy Little Pages anthology)

I’m a huge fan of erotica publisher Sexy Little Pages, and their latest anthology, Silence Is Golden, is notable not just because it’s hot and kinky as hell. It’s also very special because many of the characters have disabilities or health conditions, but these things aren’t presented as problems – in fact they’re often integral

Book Extract: Grand Slam by Lily Harlem & Lucy Felthouse

I turned to the door. I always kept it ajar when expecting a client, to give the impression that I was open to whatever they needed to talk about. It was a subliminal thing. Travis stood in the frame, his wide shoulders filling the space, the top of his head almost brushing the wood and

Book Extract: Dirty Doms

Alexei quirked an eyebrow and shifted a little in his seat, willing his cock not to stiffen. He still had to go to the bar and get both of them a drink, and he wasn’t at all keen on the idea of doing that with an erection. But Zoe’s words, coupled with the look on

Column: Sexcrime

Enjoy this website while you can. In the year 2014, less than half a human generation past the end of a century which saw advances in sexual freedom (both practical and legal) unprecedented in human history, we are now well into an attempt by the powerful to roll it all back to the Victorian Era.

Event Preview: Shibari With Santi, 8 & 9 November 2014, London

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

Eros and Phobos

Camille Paglia once wrote, “You have to accept the fact that part of the sizzle of sex comes from the danger of sex.”  Because of that, second-wave feminists were fighting a losing battle in trying to paint sex as a wholly good, positive, non-scary, sunshine-and-rainbows thing in order to make it palatable to the naïve

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

Why just do kink when you can do ‘Ecstatic BDSM’? That’s the question London Faerie aims to answer at The Purple Door, a two-day workshop in London, on Saturday 27th and Sunday 28th September. The workshop provides a comprehensive introduction to Ecstatic BDSM – sometimes also called ‘conscious kink’ – for anyone with any level of

The Golden Afternoon

“Once upon a time there were three little sisters,” the Dormouse began in a great hurry; “and their names were Elsie, Lacie and Tillie, and they lived at the bottom of a well–”  –  Lewis Carroll While Americans celebrate July 4th as Independence Day, the anniversary of the adoption of the Declaration of Independence, it’s

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: Joy Ride

Joy Ride is one of the books in the multi-author Spice Rack series from Ellora’s Cave. The Spice Rack is a sex toy with a twist – you open one of the pots of “spice” and inside is a piece of paper with a suggestion to spice up your sex life. Joy Ride, by Lily Harlem, is the story

Books: Lessons and Lovers

I’ve been a fan of Portia Da Costa’s work for many years, though I admit I can’t keep up with her – she’s so prolific! I’ve enjoyed everything of hers that I’ve read, and Lessons and Lovers is no exception. This is a previously published title that Portia has self published, and is classed as a short

Columns: Sex Rays

What, you didn’t know that sex produced radiation?  It’s true!  Adult sexual activity is so dangerous to the “purity” and “innocence” of “children” (sorry for all the scare quotes) that any adult who has sex should be kept away from all children at all times.  Sex rays, you see, induce the dreaded “premature sexualization”, without

Columns: Friday the Thirteenth

In the end, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends. – Martin Luther King, Jr. This coming Friday will be the first Friday the 13th since I’ve been writing for Cliterati; most of you are probably wondering what that has to do with anything.  Well, it’s just this:

Book Extract: Sweet Torments – The Best of Alex Jordaine

Peter was still all on his own in the villa although he knew that wouldn’t be the case for much longer. He would be watching and wanking again very soon; he would be being the complete voyeur, but at the moment he was listening. And very intently too, from the open door of the unlit

Book Extract: Testing Tom

Katrina was halfway through an episode of her favorite drama series when her doorbell rang. She jumped, gasping as her heart lurched painfully, then pressed ‘pause’ on the remote control. Wincing slightly as she unfolded her legs from beneath her bottom—she’d been watching the program back-to-back for a couple of hours and she was stiff—she

Book Extract: Mistress Severity by Alex Jordaine

Justine’s immediate reaction to the question she’d just received from her unwelcome visitor was one of irritation. ‘What am I doing? you ask, Charlotte,’ she said, shooting a piercing look at the young woman who’d just entered the dungeon and who was as naked as she was herself. ‘What do you think I’m doing, on

Erotica: Forty Kinds of Penance

  Wednesday was confession day. James was away on business that week so Debbie had to make her weekly confession by Skype. She undressed, arranged the webcam attached to the top of her monitor to film her as she knelt in naked humility and selected ‘Lordandmaster’ on the menu bar. She clicked with the mouse

BDSM: Collar Me by Blacksilk

There’s something about a collar. Restraint and ownership delicately balanced with a fizzing freedom. An intimate act displayed in public. Leather wrapped around your neck can bring feelings of danger and security all at once. I’d wanted a collar for a long time. Now I own several. A black PVC one, a plain black leather

Book Extract: The Cage by Louise Friday

  I‘m not ready to share him yet. These last two weeks are mine and I intend to milk him to the full. My desire for him is too big to allow anyone else in. But I find myself considering the future: a time when he and I have moved beyond the emotion and can

Books: Awakening

Awakening by Elene Sallinger is another title that’s been compared to Fifty Shades of Grey because of the BDSM element in the book. However, the huge difference is that the female character in this book is actually a submissive – or wants to be, anyway. At the beginning of the book we meet Claire, a woman

Book Extract: Addicted

His apartment isn’t really an apartment at all. It’s more like a converted floor of a warehouse that didn’t actually get converted. The floors are that grey, untreated wood that you often see in seventeenth-century sweatshops, and he hasn’t bothered to make things like ‘rooms’. There’s a badly hung curtain between his bedroom and his
