Adentures-in-Eroticism-Workplace-Immani-LoveBOOKS: Immani Love’s 1st book series “Adventures in Eroticism” beginning with “Adventures in Eroticism: Four Seasons” is a collection of themed Lesbian Erotic short stories that places you, the reader as the main character allowing you to experience things not dared to be typically imagined. Adventures in Eroticism: Workplace is the 2nd in the series. With vivid imagery and tantalizing scenarios, these stories allow you to live out your fantasies.

Lesbian erotica has never had an avenue like this to explore sexuality with a sensual yet witty outlook on intimacy. Typical professions like Police Officer and College Professor get an enticing overhaul and allow the reader to explore the hotter side of the Workplace. Be on the lookout for the next in the series, Adventures in Eroticism: Holidays and Adventures in Eroticism: World Travels. Coming soon!

CD: “Immani Love … Sensually Speaking” – This is the inaugural CD of Immani Love erotic poetry. One of the few strictly LGBT erotic poets around, Immani Love brings her sensual voice and imagination stimulating words for the long awaiting ears and hearts of the world. Not for the virgin ears, but definitely for the arousal of loins and the wetting of panties, she delves into the world of sexuality with a spirited, no holds barred sense of fantasy and reality.

Enjoy A Free Excerpt from Adventures in Eroticism: Workplace, “Duty Calls (Police Officer)”

…As she led the way to her bedroom every thought you had about self-restraint went out the window and it didn’t help that the thin silk wrap-around dress that swayed as she walked, hugged every curve yet flapped open occasionally to show her thick thighs. The sun danced through the sheer curtains onto the walls of her very feminine pale pink bedroom, and as she sat on the edge of her bed the rays of sun shone on her thighs while the dress slid open gently. The phrases “ex-girlfriend” and “fresh start” rang in your ears like a dinner bell and she was a delectable main course meal. Your every being felt the urge to just snatch open that dress and ravage her body, but instead you just simply said, “Oh, that’s cool.” Once again, kicking yourself for not being more valiant in your approach. You removed your gear and weapon and began to take off the wet clothing. Although her head was turned away you noticed her watching you undress in the mirror. It delighted you that she blushed as you removed your tank top to reveal the lacy bra that enveloped your ample bosom and as you removed your pants she stifled her smile as she almost whispered, “You should take those off too,” referring to your damp undergarments. “Are you trying to get me naked?” You quipped, while unfastening your bra.  “Yes!” she replied and swiftly added, “We wouldn’t want you walking around all day dripping wet, would we?”

Her deliberate wording was comical and she chuckled as she gathered your clothing and left the room. “Too late,”

you muttered as you stood there nude deciding whether or not to put on the flimsy robe. The idea of standing there naked

and vulnerable while she tended to your laundry was unnerving and you decided a thin robe was better than no defense at

all but as you slipped into the silky garment you turned to see Saraya walking towards you almost as if in slow motion,

holding a glass of PINK LEMONADE.  It was literally like your dream was more of a premonition except you knew for a

fact that no angry husband or boyfriend would come and attack you. As she entered the room you stood there motionless

trying to make sure you didn’t assume your fantasy was coming true. Saraya walked past you without a word, set the glass on

her bedside table and beckoned for you to come to her. As if in a trance, you complied and as she spoke her words sent chills

through your body, “I’ve been waiting for this.” she whispered as she untied her dress and let it drop to the floor.

Dorrie Lane, a pioneer in sex-positive sex education classes since the 1980’s used her vision, her video camera, and her Wondrous Vulva Puppet to bring revolutionary information to women and men ready to go beyond mainstream assumptions.

Dorrie was one of the first to provide clear, direct, factual education at a time when few people had never even heard of the fabulous possibilities in the wide range of women’s sexual response. Her company, HouseOchicks produced some of the first “edutainment” videos, billed as, Sex through the Eyes of Women with titles that include, the Magic of Female Ejaculation, How to Find Your Goddess Spot, and the fabulous Masturbation Memoirs, featuring erotic luminaries Annie Sprinkle, Juliet Anderson (aka Aunt Peg), Scarlot Harlot, Dorrie Lane and many more.

She created the very first Sex Education online site in 1996, Vulva University, providing essential, award winning, free classes on women’s sexuality with intelligent and thoughtful information, designed by women, for women and those that love them.

She created the Wondrous Vulva Puppet in 1992 and continues to produce them today.

Fluctuating Desire Workshop

Fluctuating Desire Workshop with Meg-John Barker & Justin Hancock

We often get the message that we should have a consistent amount of sexual desire in our relationships. People fear that it’s a sign of trouble if their desires change, or if they have different amounts of desire to their partner. Actually it’s totally normal for our amount, and type, of desire, to change over time. And different amounts and types of desire are to be expected in relationships.

Join Meg-John Barker and Justin Hancock for an enlightening and reaffirming workshop on fluctuating desire.

This workshop takes you through how to navigate fluctuations and discrepancies in desire, focusing on being with ourselves where we are and expanding our erotic imaginations.

MEg-John & Justin

When: Tuesday 19th September at 6:30pm
Price: £15  | The price includes a copy of their new book Enjoy Sex (How, when and if you want to): A Practical and Inclusive Guide
Book Here: M-J & J at Sh! 
Alternatively, call 0207-6135458, quoting Fluctuating Desire Workshop. Payment at time of booking please. Please note, refunds will only be given to any cancellations notified 7 days or more in advance of the workshop taking place.

More about Kay Jaybee

With a background in history and archaeology, Kay Jaybee should be sat in a dusty university library, translating Medieval Latin criminal records, and writing research documents that hardly anyone would want to read. Instead, tucked away in the South West of England, Jenny Kane writes stories with one hand, while teaching creative writing classes for her company, Imagine…, with the other.

KayJayBee-6

Kay spends most of her time in the local coffee shops, where she wrote the novels, The Perfect Submissive Trilogy – The Perfect Submissive, The Retreat and Knowing Her Place, Making Him Wait, and The Voyeur (Xcite, 2012), as well as the novellas, Wednesday on Thursday,  Not Her Type: Erotic Adventures With A Delivery Man, Digging Deep, and A Sticky Situation.

Kay has also written seven anthologies and over 150 short erotic stories – she also writes mainstream fiction as Jenny Kane and medieval crime as Jennifer Ash

Details of Kay’s work, past, present and future can be found at www.kayjaybee.me.uk


Wednesday on Thursday

WednesdayThere are rumours that the coffee guy has “a thing” about words.

Shrugging off her friend’s concern about the way the man in the cafe stares at her every lunch hour, Wednesday can’t see how his love of words could possibly be hazardous.

The fact is, Wednesday rather enjoys being the centre of an attractive man’s undivided attention. His dark blue eyes alone have provided her with many delicious erotic fantasies, a welcome distraction from the pressures of the real world and a dull job.

It’s totally harmless…

…until there’s an accident with a cup of coffee.

After soaking Wednesday with a hot latte, the coffee guy’s attention suddenly becomes far more enticing—and dangerous.

Drawn into a bizarre world of human behavioural research, where crosswords are used to initiate sexual experiments, Wednesday finds herself driven, not by a desire to further scientific research, but by the need to be rewarded for her hard work by the coffee guy’s captivating research assistant.

A stunning redhead by the name of Thursday…


The Perfect Submissive

The Perfect Submisive - new ropeHidden behind the Fables Hotel’s respectable facade, five specially adapted rooms wait; ready to cater for the kinky requirements of its guests.

When Mrs Peters, the mistress of the hotel’s exclusive entertainment facility, meets the new booking clerk, Jess Sanders, she instantly recognises the young woman’s potential as a deliciously meek addition to her specialist staff. All it will take is a little education.

Under the tutelage of the dominatrix, Miss Sarah, Jess learns to cope with her unexpected training schedule, the increasingly erotic chill she experiences each time she survives a new level of correction, and a truly sexy exercise routine.

Temporarily distracted from her intimidating rule over Fable’s top floor by an enigmatic artist, Mrs Peters begins to plan how she can secure his obedient assistance, in grooming Jess into the perfect submissive…


More About K D Grace/Grace Marshall

Voted ETO Best Erotic Author of 2014, and a proud member of The Brit Babes, K D Grace believes Freud was right. In the end, it really IS all about sex, well sex and love. And nobody’s happier about that than she is, otherwise, what would she write about?

When she’s not writing, K D is veg gardening. When she’s not gardening, she’s walking. She walks her stories, and she’s serious about it. She and her husband have walked Coast to Coast across England, along with several other long-distance routes. For her, inspiration is directly proportionate to how quickly she wears out a pair of walking boots. She loves mythology. She enjoys spending time in the gym – right now she’s having a mad affair with a pair of kettle bells. She loves to read, watch birds and do anything that gets her outdoors.

KD has erotica published with Totally Bound, SourceBooks, Xcite Books, Harper Collins Mischief Books, Mammoth, Cleis Press, Black Lace, Sweetmeats Press and others.


Toys for Boys Blurb:

Will is recording their adventures with the latest smart phone technology. Doc is reviewing the latest outdoor gear. The two quickly discover the great outdoors provides even better toys for boys, toys best shared al fresco, toys that, in spite of Will’s great camera work, will never be reviewed in Toys for Boys.


In The Flesh Blurb:

kdgrace-itf-finalWhen Susan Innes comes to visit her friend, Annie Rivers, in Chapel House, the deconsecrated church that Annie is renovating into a home, she discovers her outgoing friend changed, reclusive, secretive, and completely enthralled by a mysterious lover, whose presence is always felt, but never seen, a lover whom she claims is god. As her holiday turns into a nightmare, Susan must come to grips with the fact that her friend’s lover is neither imaginary nor is he human, and even worse, he’s turned his wandering eye on Susan, and he won’t be denied his prize. If Susan is to fight an inhuman stalker intent on having her as his own, she’ll need a little inhuman help.

Valentine Erotic Reading

Enjoy Free Erotica at Sh!

Happy Shrove Tuesday Everyone!

We are feeling rather jammy here at Sh HQ  – we are sat in the middle of a lovely pile of Valentine’s goodies, we have a sold-out oral-treat class to look forward to tomorrow evening and a wholly different type of aural treats on Thursday evening – we have a fantastic line up of erotica authors setting the tone for a superbly hot Valentine’s weekend with their hot, hot, hot stories!

Zak Jane KeirBubbly & Cake, Kristina Lloyd, K D Grace, Elizabeth Coldwell, Elena Hexthorne and Special Guests will be at Sh! (57 Hoxton Square N1 6PB) from 6.30 pm (we recommend arriving at 6pm for a glass of fizz and great seat).

There will of course be plenty of time for browsing tasty treats for your own super-sexy Valentine’s Day celebration, and Team Sh! will be on hand with advice, help and cup cakes…

Just for you, just for today, the sweet-as-honey authors are sharing some freshly whipped erotica to enjoy along with your stack of pancakes – enjoy!

 

Our first dose of decadence is from Zak Jane Keir:

Bedroom BondageNow he was single again, though, he felt brave enough to take his first, tentative steps onto the fetish scene. He’d read just enough novels which depicted  kinky sexualities to give him the idea that it might be something he would enjoy, but had always known that it wouldn’t be something he could share with Amanda. Her tastes tended towards the gentle and sensual with vague overtones of romantic mysticism, which had been all right by Lee but somehow not quite enough. Perhaps he would find out who he really was by exploring his slow-burning fascination with whips, handcuffs, spanking and high-heeled footwear. At least, he hoped, he would have fun trying.

Well, if that tickled your tastebuds, then you should come hear more from Zak on Thursday evening!

 

Next up is Brighton’s brightest belle, Kristina Loyd:

Valentine's day Dream Date

Inside, I was tender and swollen from coming, and the thrust of his cock edged me to new heights. I felt loose and near delirious, my mind spinning strange trippy patterns as he pounded me. Soon, he grew more frantic and he clasped me above the elbows, lifting my upper body so it was at right angles to his. I jerked like a rag doll on the end of his cock, shuddering and shaking as he drilled like a man possessed. Moments later, he released a series of rough, exuberant grunts then peaked on a half roar of bliss, lodging himself deep as he shot his load.

He held me there as he caught his breath before gently lowering me to the bed. He removed my gag first. I ran my tongue around my gums and waggled my jaw.

“You okay?” He untied my wrists and stroked hair away from my face. “Was it good for you?”

For sure, Kristina – that was *great*! And we’re looking forward to  a whole lot more…

 

K D Grace, American Glamazon and our very good friend, have shared this treat from Interviewing Wade:

love toys!At the moment when she should have given the man his privacy, at the moment when she should have turned and fled back to her room, he called out her name, and her heart started again, like something wild and angry trying to escape her chest.

‘I’m sorry, I’m so sorry,’ she gasped. ‘Wade I didn’t mean to …’ her words died in her throat. ‘Wade?’ She stepped closer to see that his eyes were still closed. His consciousness was still somewhere in the dream world. She released a shaky breath as she realised the man was still sound asleep, even as he called her name again, even as he writhed against the tangle of sheets and worked his erection with a grip that had become white-knuckled with his need. He called her name! In his dreams she was doing this to him. With her pulse hammering so loudly she could barley hear, she tiptoed into the room and knelt next to the low cot. The muscles below her belly tightened in a gripping tremor and everything down deep in her centre felt heavy and swollen and humid like the seashore she could always smell when she lusted, though she could never recall lusting like this.

And if you are lusting for more, come hear K D read on Thursday evening!

 

Here’s a real treat from Elizabeth Coldwell, an extract from Pride Under Fire:

Connor walked toward the bed, unbuttoning his shirt as he went. The man who waited for him there licked his lips as Connor tossed the garment to the floor, revealing his broad, tan chest.

Late afternoon sun warmed the bedroom. Through the window, Connor caught a glimpse of a pretty, white-painted clapboard church with a high steeple. Trees surrounded it, their leaves thick and green. The tranquil countryside scene was so different from the view out of his own apartment, which looked onto one of Santa Monica’s busiest streets.

“You live in a beautiful place,” he commented.

The man shrugged. “True, but I didn’t bring you here to admire the view. Well, not that one, anyway.”

Connor grinned. “Don’t get impatient.” Still, his companion was well worth a few moments’ admiration, with that killer combination of dark, glossy hair and soft blue eyes. Things had moved so fast. It seemed no sooner had Connor walked into the bar than he and this guy—had they even gotten as far as exchanging names?—were deep in flirtatious conversation. He didn’t normally go out looking to hook up with someone for sex, but tonight it had just felt right.

Want to hear what happens next? Join Elisabeth on Thursday evening…

 

We’re especially excited to welcome Elena Hexthorn, a first-time reader at Sh! Here’s a tempting treat from her story Sext Me:

dressing gownAccording to her phone, 32 minutes had passed when she heard her door bell ring. She was pleased about his decision to move quickly. So many men were happy to live in their heads. It was a rare breed that would take a risk. She found that an instant turn-on. She swung her high heeled latex boots over the side of the bath so that she could get out and answer the door. Donning a black satin robe, she walked to the front door. A young shy looking man with boyish good looks entered the hallway. She ushered him in and shut the door behind him. He stood looking at her awkwardly in the tiny hall. She looked him up and down with a pleased look on her face, but had no recollection of him from any clubs she may have been to recently. She parted her black satin robe to show him her naked body framed by her wet thigh length latex boots.

‘On your knees, boy,’ she demanded.

The man dropped to his knees in the hallway. She knew they would be more comfortable in the lounge or bedroom, but she loved the psychology of not letting him get more than a foot in the door before he had to assume a submissive role.

‘Lick,’ she ordered; pointing to the tip of her boot.

Ooh, missus – we love a bossy lady!

 

Pouring BubblyAnd if you do too, you should join us for a fun evening of fizz, cake and erotic treats on Thursday 11th February at 6pm…
