Happy Belated International Fisting Day!

I’ve been so busy lately (moving to Brooklyn, applying to graduate school, writing for Autostraddle) that I completely forgot to celebrate International Fisting Day on my own website! Jesus Christmas, I don’t know what came over me! I have a particular affinity for fisting, how could I have dropped the ball on this one? Fisting [...]


That Fisting Story “Comes” Back: The A-Camp Sex Panel

It was the first story I ever wrote about sex, the story that made me realize that I really liked writing about sex. And I told all my campers to ask about it the first time I ever had to speak publicly about sex. You see, I attended and was a counselor at A-Camp, a [...]


Autostraddle. Look What I Get To Do For Three Weeks.

    Autostraddle — “Common Gender” Brings A Queer Love Story to Bollywood. The cat’s out of the bag now, as my first post went up today.  I recently applied to Autostraddle for one of their contributing editor positions and was accepted on a trial basis for the next three weeks.  That link up there?

Guest Post! Charlotte Dare from “The Harder She Comes”

Ladies, Gentlemen, and Others. We have a super special treat today. D.L. King has a new book out called “The Harder She Comes.” I’m in the middle of reading it right now and there will be a real review, but for now I’m just telling you it’s worth it and go buy it. D.L. has [...]


Say Please Rocks It Somethin’ Fierce!

Say Please: Lesbian BDSM Erotica by Sinclair Sexsmith My rating: 5 of 5 stars BDSM is not always my thing. But good writing is, and this book is chock full of it. You might be wondering why I read it, if I’m not generally turned on by leather, or pain, or the wide-variety of things [...]


Crash Pad(‘s New Site) is Sexy!

It really was never not sexy.  I mean, put enough naked queers on a website and it could look like line-command DOS from 1984 and still be sexy.  And it didn’t look like that before, not at all.  It was pink and white, just like the production company name, an cute.  And full of naked [...]


Say Please Reading on Friday the 13th!

I’m sure most of y’all have already heard about the BDSM sensation that’s sweeping the nation. Say Please: Lesbian BDSM Erotica, edited by Sinclair Sexsmith is wonderful so far! And they’re hosting a lot of fun events to go along with the release. Perhaps you’ve heard of the Virtual Book Tour (my day is April [...]


Your Surprise is Coming in a Minute

  It’s been a while, Crash Pad. For a while, my breakup turned me into a sleeps-at-8, never-dates-never-masturbates, prudish hermit-spinster. Nay, those words are too nice. Perhaps a sex-negative curmudgeon would be a better descriptor. I didn’t even touch a vibrator for months on end. And I’m a sex blogger. For shame. I did watch [...]


Have You a Goodreads Account, Good People?

Because if you do, add Best Lesbian Erotica to your “To-Read” list. Also friend me and let me stalk your books. It feels so good to see work I’ve been a part of get fabulous ratings on Goodreads, almost as good as it feels to see my work in a book with an actual binding [...]


Why I Like Perversions of Lesbian Lust So Much

I was only asked to do one post about Madison Young’s new project, Perversions of Lesbian Lust, where every piece of smut is inspired by the campiest lesbian pulp novels in the history of dykedom (like dukedom, only gayer.) This is my fourth post. And being that I just got promoted in my day-time jobbity [...]
