Erotica can be as exciting and sensational or light and playful as you like. Much like the physical act of sex itself. Good storytellers know this. Their characters are as gentle and reassuring, as commanding and dynamic, and sometimes as truly libidinous, as they dare to be. And there’s nothing like an open-themed anthology to illustrate that very variety and diversity, in story and in writerly craftsmanship.
In my latest anthology, FOR THE MEN AND THE WOMEN WHO LOVE THEM: 25 BOLD SEX STORIES, every one of the contributing authors recognizes that there exists tremendous diversity within sexuality, and that over time, our tastes and preferences don’t remain stagnant—they move and sway. And, if we truly open ourselves up—if we dare, our curiosities can lead us to all-new terrains and fulfilling pleasures. The 25 featured authors in FOR THE MEN understand that everyone has some kind of drive. Especially veteran authors like; DL King, Rachel Kramer Bussel, and Tamsin Flowers—who’ve been honing their craft for years. Each and every contributor in this new assemblage of sexy stories knows how to play with desire in order to arouse, by utilizing their own unique styles and flavors.
Today’s episode offers up some light power play—a dynamic that will make your skin prickle and your libido perk up and pay attention…
D.L. King’s favorite things to do include playing Cards Against Humanity, watching Face Off, and barbecuing in her postage-stamp-sized garden, not to mention electrocuting the odd boy now and then. (He doesn’t really have to be all that odd…) She likes a nice glass of 20-year-old tawny port and a rare steak. She is not, in actuality, a fan of chocolate. She also likes telling her cat, Bat Girl, to stop destroying the couch; well, she doesn’t really like that, it’s just a fact of life. She lives in Brooklyn NY.
