I live in DC and it can be very dull, and so can a lot of the men, but one of things you cannot beat is our Ethiopian food.
While a man or woman or combo of the two can be quite the tasty treat, it does not beat the sponge bread and spicy food of an Ethiopian dish (I am erotica writer, not a foodie, I am not Googling the ingredients or name.)
All I know is Ethiopian food has never finished too son, I am always the one finishing first and with plenty left over; it also doesn’t talk about sports or Beltway politics–yawn.
The only problem is you can’t eat and write, because you have to use your hands (there are no forks), but there are so many men who think their hands are in the way of getting sex and with Ethiopian food the foreplay is all about getting your hands dirty and then tasting the meal.
If you are ever in DC, yes, visit all the tourist stuff but make sure you find a good Ethiopian restaurant; we have the best in the nation and afterward you will feel inspired, full, and sensual—now if I can only find a boyfriend that makes me feel that way I would be set.
PS I got my first review and it was good one from a total stranger!
Also, my political satire-erotica novella “A Fair & Balanced Fuck Fest” I am working very hard on and my editor is loving it so fair; I’m very excited for it to come out!
Your eyes, enlarge
when you look my way.
I notice other things,
on you grow bigger.
Women have a way of looking,
without you ever knowing.
But you, you’re not
discrete Mr. Metro Man.
You don’t fool me
with your newspaper.
I can see your eyes
above the sports pages
staring at me and I can see
the smudge from the sweat
on your hands, I want
to feel on my skin.
In erotica, risk is not always awarded. It is very much a hit or miss kind of thing. Though, I am more a football girl, the baseball metaphor of homerun and strike out comes to play when you write a fetish centric erotic work.
I saw an intriguing documentary about ‘maskers’: men who like to dress up like female dolls. It was fascinating to me, and I found the act very erotic. It is also free today and tomorrow.
I wrote a solid story and put it out for the same price as many other erotica pieces but it has not done that well.
Don’t get me wrong, I am not complaining, and I know I am newbie at this but I see it was a high risk, high reward story to write.
Artistically it was very fulfilling and I have gotten a few nice e-mails but it has not been a story the masses and average erotica reader has downloaded—though the director gave it a very nice shout out which made me feel very good.
I see in erotica, risk is not always rewarded in the marketplace unless it really something original—dinosaur and beast mating became big, but that is just not my thing (when I’m the prude, I know it is some truly kinky stuff.)
As I do something that is still a little out there mixing politics and satire, into erotica I am once again gambling.
I could lose but I like when the stakes are high.
My editor said he had an idea he wanted to write but there was just too much on his plate, and asked me if I wanted to write it.
Now, I love working with an editor but I like coming up with my own ideas, but the idea was so much fun I thought–hell, I need to write this and I could it write it well.
He said it was just a plot of an extreme left-wing group drugging Fox News’ water supply and making them have sex with each other. Now, I won’t lie, I work for the Government (yes I have a pen name for many reasons) and lean very left but the idea of Sean Hannity having hot sex with Elizabeth Hasselbeck was just something I felt like I had to do.
So I am working on it with the title “A Fair & Balanced Fuck Fest” and my editor is very happy of what I have so far, and yes the Hannity-Hasselbeck scene is pretty damn hot.
More to cum…
I’ve been told erotica should be like a first date, you should be at your best self and don’t mention religion and politics. I have to say, this is good advice but yet I like to break rules; isn’t some of the best erotica about pushing boundaries?
While I don’t think a political point of view should be shoved in the readers face (though some other things should 😉 I think politics is a great setting for erotic tales.
I live in DC and even work for the Govt. and must say 99% of ‘real world’ politics is kind of boring, but there is that 1% time where it gets down and dirty which can make for a nice dirty story. I like that 1% (I’m not, economically, but would like to be) and like to use that part of DC and politics itself as a character and setting for erotic stories.
My editor is a satirist and he preaches to try to be different and stand out, so I think it is ok when there is no real agenda (he said the only thing that should lean left or right are a man’s, you know ;), but who knows, I could see myself writing a sexy story about Occupiers sharing a tent.
