Features: Daisy Chain With Dumb Domme by GirlontheNet

When Cliterati first started, there were very few people – particularly women – writing about sex on the internet. Now, there’s an abundance of sex bloggers. But who should you read? We didn’t think it was fair for us to decide on our own but wanted to help expose (ahem) the best sex bloggers around.

Column: Saying something stupid like…

…”Am I wobbling  a lot?” I often think our whole lives are led by what we say – “I do”, “yes, I’ll take the job”, “Ok – I’ll put on the gimp mask”, “go on then – I’ll stay for another drink” etc. etc. Drunken Slut Mum has many moments when she wishes that, rather

How does it work?

With all my recent questioning and hand-wringing over relationships, which never comes to any satisfactory conclusion, I thought it time to look at those who get it right.

Liam/memory block

He rescued me from a situation which probably would have ended with me being punched by another girl. So it had all started off rather strangely. I had been out with a group of people I barely knew. I had just got back in contact with an old school friend, Anne, after several years, and

Inge

When I’m 53 I want to be like Inge. She is my 50-something role model. With her toned, tanned body and dazzling white smile, she is a picture of health and happiness. But after 20 years of teaching yoga, she has much to smile about. Not for her the stress and mundanity of an office

Property of the State

One of the tragic flaws of the human race is that the mass of people are wholly unable to see the big picture, which gives a powerful advantage to people and institutions wise enough and patient enough to invest their energies in a long game.  While many people can recognize the immediate problems with some

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

Comment: Not Good Enough

Modern feminists expend considerable time and energy criticizing societal pressures for women’s bodies to conform to certain sexual norms.  While I reject asinine assertions like “clothes, cosmetics, diets, gym membership, trips to the hair salon, the waxing salon and the nail salon [are indicators of women’s] self-loathing” and mercilessly ridicule those who spend their time

Erotica: Nursed by TG

Sometimes in life, everything comes to a sudden halt, and all your choices are taken away. You don’t plan it, something just comes along and puts you on your back. In Josh’s case, that meant literally. He stared up at the ceiling of his private room. His friends had visited him today, and stuck a
