Erotica: Bowled Over By Ben

I love stripping on stage. I have the audience in the palm of my hand and I’m playing with them, slowly teasing them with the power of suggestion: an item of clothing shed here, a flash of skin there, the hint of a curve revealed, a coquettish smile over a bare shoulder – and I

First Sight by Rebecca Black

The hot water beats down my back and neck in stark contrast to the cold tiles under my hand braced against the wall. My head has fallen forward watching my working hand sweep up and down my long, hard cock. Only one thing is on my mind. Jack. My new flatmate. I hold myself tight,

Columns: By Any Other Name

When I was guest blogging at The Agitator last July, a reader asked a question whose answer might, I think, be interesting for Cliterati readers as well. So here it is, modified slightly for this format: Speaking of hookers, what are the rules (or traditions among those in the profession) regarding the use of words

Erotica: King of Hearts by Blacksilk

Her heavy breath brushed the lobe of my ear as she leant in to kiss my neck. She smelt faintly of men’s deodorant and alcohol. Her lips brushed my skin teasingly before she nipped at me, catching me off-guard, her teeth finding purchase. She released me and grinned; I stifled a giggle. Her eyes were

Erotica: A Friend in Need

I met her at the gym. She was beautiful; blonde, tanned and sophisticated, with a husky voice that sent shivers through me every time I heard it. We went to the same yoga class, so I had plenty of time to admire her in the full-length mirrors as she bent and stretched her toned body.

*Otherwise known as the seven habits of highly effective kinky people. I thought I’d kick off my career as a cliterati.co.uk columnist by sharing some romantic stories, most of which involve consensual pain, bondage and/or bollock torture. Start as we mean to go on, eh? The course of true love never did run smooth, but

Erotica: I Want You

I’m so glad you gave me your number. I noticed you a while ago. Whenever we’ve exchanged looks or chatted, I’ve been tense with anticipation. When I saw you in the girl bar, I couldn’t believe my luck. My only worry was gone – I wasn’t misreading your friendliness. You do like women. And after
