Ebooks and Erotica: A Match Made in Electronic Heaven

I have to say, I love my Kindle.  And one of the main reasons is that it makes it much nicer if I am reading a romance or an erotica novel.  I’m not ashamed to read these, but when you use public transit every day to get to and from work, and people sit with you, it’s not always comfortable reading a book with half naked people on the front of it.  And trust me, they will see the cover at some point.

A Kindle DX Graphite by AmazonWith my Kindle, or any other type of ereader, you can read in private.  Yes, if they were leaning over and reading over your shoulder they would know what you were reading, but chances are they are not going to get that quite close to you.  And really, if they do, well, they deserve to see what you are reading.

Another great perk of an ereader is that you can likely download a free on onto whatever electronic device you have.  A tablet, a computer, a smartphone, most of these have the capability to download books that you can read with you wherever you go.  And many libraries offer systems that will allow you to borrow books from them so you do not have to even step into the library to borrow your erotica.

My plan is to write some erotica.  I have ideas at this point but they have not formed into a point where they are a story.  A few are getting there but they need to be expanded on and drawn out.  500 words does not a story make.  that said, once they are ready, they will be published on the Kindle format and maybe a few other formats if I can figure them out.  And then you can freely read them on your reader without having to worry about what others think.

If you do not have a kindle, that is fine.  There are free apps that you can download on your electronic devices or onto your computer.

Reigniting the Spark

From time to time, those in a long-term relationship may fondly remember the near-overwhelming excitement of those first few intimate encounters.  The first time you and your partner kissed, the first time you saw one another undressed, and the first time you had sex, each event is often blanketed in the glow of new love.   As time goes by, and you become more comfortable with one another, the sparks lessen; however, there is something wonderful about the familiarity that comes with long relationships.  The exhilaration from burgeoning love can still pop up after many years together, though you may have to work at bringing the magic to the forefront.

  • The more popular technology becomes, the less we are speaking in person to one another.  Take the time to talk face to face – even if only for a few minutes.  Keep the conversation focused on each other, rather than on work or family.  And don’t forget to make eye contact.
  • Touch one another.  Hold hands while walking.  Rub your partner’s neck while he is driving.  Make skin contact beyond the sexual.
  • As our lives become busier, it is important to make time to spend with your partner with just the two of you.  Go on dates.  If you can’t have one every week, ensure you have one once a month.
  • Kiss.  While sweet, quick pecks are lovely, deeper kisses can lead to a deeper connection.  Sit on the couch and make out like a couple of teenagers.  If it leads to sex, that’s just an added bonus.
  • Do things together.   Have to hand wash some dishes?  One can wash while the other dries.  Need to walk the dog?  Go together, hand in hand.
  • Remember flirting?  Start doing it again!  Flirt with your partner.  Compliment her hair.  Tell him he looks sexy in those jeans (and give him a pinch or pat when you do).  Make sexual innuendos.

About Sylvie

I’m a single woman in my 30’s who was married many years ago and have been separated/divorced for over a decade.  I was in my 20’s then and my sexual experience certainly was not all that great.  As a single gal, I have been learning more about my sexuality as well as exploring it.   sylvie profile

I did sell sex toys for several years but due to issues with the company I was working for, I left that field.  I have missed the interaction and the fun that comes with talking sex and selling sex toys and have done some writing on the topic over the years but not much.  When Lucy approached me about starting this blog, I quickly agreed and am looking forward to seeing where this blog ends up going.

1.       How old were you when you first kissed?  I’m thinking I was about 13 or 14.  I was in junior high and I was “flirting” with the boy I had a crush on.  We were walking around town and he kissed me.  At this point, I don’t remember much of the details but I remember hoping he would do it again.

2.       What celebrity do you think is hot or conversely, would you want to hook up with?   David Boreanaz from “Bones” is pretty darn yummy.

3.       What is your idea of a truly romantic evening?  I think I’d have to go with a classic.  Cuddling on the couch while watching a movie and then seeing what happens afterwards.  That said, I highly doubt the movie would be watched, in fact, I’ve already had that happen.

4.       Have you ever used sex toys?   Absolutely.  Both solo and with partners which is great fun.

5.       What’s your favorite position?   Spooning.   He can access those important spots in this position and I can just lay and enjoy.  While I know this is similar to doggy, that position requires energy to stay in it and I’m lazy.

About Lucy

My husband and I are both in our mid-thirties and have been married for more than a decade.  Over the years we have experienced many ups and downs, including unemployment, living with family, graduate school, career changes, and infertility.  The challenges we’ve encountered have made our relationship stronger.  I’m truly lucky to have such a wonderful relationship.

I’m a librarian and my husband is an over-the-road truck driver, a career he started only five years ago.  Instead of driving a wedge in our relationship, we have adapted to the changes, and continue to enjoy experimenting in – and out of – the bedroom.

  1. How old were you when you first kissed? I was a bit of a late bloomer in the dating department.  I was 16 and many months before I had my first kiss – with a slightly older guy I met at a country music festival near my hometown.
  2. What celebrity do you think is hot or conversely, would you want to hook up with? My celebrity crush of the past few years has been David Tennant.  My literary character crushes are from the same book series: the Outlander series by Diana Gabaldon.  I can’t decide between Jamie and Roger Mac.  Perhaps I’ll just take both!
  3. What is your idea of a truly romantic evening? Spending time with my husband – talking, touching, snuggling.  Just paying attention to each other.  Since he is on the road most of the week, and I work some of the weekends he is home, any time we can devote to one another is romantic.
  4. Have you ever used sex toys? Quite often!  They are great to use alone or with your lover.
  5. What’s your favorite position? It just depends on how tired I am.  LOL Seriously, though, I’m a fan of being on top, usually with a bullet being applied in a key spot.

tricks for relationships – both in and out of the bedroom, and general posts of erotic interest, they hope to help others bring passion to their lives.  Both women bring different experiences to the blog and will be posting about different aspects of romance, sex and erotica from their perspective.

Lucy’s posts will include such topics as sex after marriage and keeping the spark alive.  She will also provide critiques of erotica stories and reviews of various marital aides. Since Lucy has been writing – and publishing – erotica stories, you can expect posts about upcoming stories, as well as tips on writing your own.  Additionally, Lucy will share her experiences with the effects of infertility on marriage.  Since she has an insatiable appetite for knowledge, she will also post about the various television shows and documentaries she watches that pertain to the general topics of this blog. Lucy will also be using her husband as more than a research tool, by occasionally asking for his opinion and assistance in writing her articles.

Sylvie will be posting about sex toys based on her time selling them, information pertaining to sex toys and selling them and information about the human body that she has learnt from her years selling and research.  She will be posting book reviews of erotica and stories that she has read as well as blogging about her experiences of being a single gal in her 30s.  You can expect to read some interesting stories about the men she talks to, she meets, and anything else that may happen between them.  As of right now, there are no men in her life but there are several with whom she chats.  Sylvie also plans to write some erotica stories and will be posting about how that experience goes in her blog.
