Flaming June is very much living up to its name here in the UK. For me, it is actually a little too warm but i do appreciate the extra light and long days. Makes for a More productive May. (A pun there for Cousin Pons).
According to my statistics, by far the most popular read for you guys in June was my masturbation post – averaging out at about 150 views a week. Must be the real-life office masturbation scene that caught the readers imagination.
At the start of June I began a new fictional series. Originally I had planned it would last for about 4 parts – well that’s as far as I have got and I am only about halfway through. It is slightly taboo and I decided to write it after attending a great lecture at Eroticon about Taboo Writing.
And that is the theme of this months summary sharing post. Take a look at what I have been impressed with reading, on this theme, in June.
Writing ~ Taboo and Coping with Adversity
Reading some non-fiction posts where the writer has suffered a real-life adverse event can often feel slightly taboo as well.
This month I wrote this one regarding reasons why my enjoyment of receiving oral sex has been a bit of a journey. I have worked past the adversity thankfully.
One thing I am enjoying is the Summer 100 challenge. Here are some fellow bloggers involved in it have also not let a bad situations define them.
- Zara writes about how she has navigated her way past sexual assaults and religion to find sexual pleasure –
All of those experiences and other sexual and non sexual assaults and trauma affected me… While I feel sad it took until my later years to learn to enjoy myself, I am learning more about my body and what I like all the time and as I learn sometimes things change and I have to learn all over again.
- Meg tells us about a heartbreaking experience she has gone through – a house fire and how she is finally coming out the other side-
- Ani writes about her chronic depression and how she has now realised how important prioritising in one’s life is-
- S.land talks about how life can be difficult and how she has become more resilient because of obstacles-
My slightly taboo series – The Curse – has been so much fun to write. The characters are evolving as I write-
- When I read this by Molly I was immediately taken with her idea and the fact she had written it –
She had tried hinting about her preferences in her profile but had found that to be fairly unsuccessful so had eventually changed it to say clearly that she was only interested in men of colour or as she liked to call it, Black meat.
- Cara blew me away with this fictional short – it is not erotic but is hard hitting-
- Another very short tale that not only impressed me but my man too, is from Jor–
- Ella always tests the boundaries in her writing and as uncomfortable as this made me feel I thought it was brilliant-
- Marie’s also deals somewhat with humiliation and age. Again this made me a little uncomfortable but praise be for writing that can do that-
- The last post I am sharing with a slightly taboo theme is non-fiction from Miss Scarlett– Very interesting read –
My most popular image this month from my blog was this surreal photo-
I am going to leave you with a treat as the one I want to share with you is my favourite image of June from the gorgeous Jo–
