Awakening

An unbelievable, hot, lust-filled first time.

  It was my brother's idea to head to the beach. Something I wouldn't have agreed to normally. I hated the beach. Too hot, too sandy, and too damn boring. I would be happier holed up in my room, fucking around on my computer, but he'd insisted, saying I needed to get out of the house. Apparently, my period of moping around after being dumped by my girlfriend, Amy, was over. "Andrew, do I...Read On

Reverb

From a series of sonnets

After we are a tangle of limbs braided, our heat encased within blankets and our still, feverish forms, I try to listen to the endless  beautiful code that your heart makes. You're always trying to tell me something whenever we're not using words. This live wire between us speaks.   I hear you more in the reverb, breathe you between the beats, no matter how my fingertips touch. No matter...Read On

“Tell me you wouldn’t love to fuck her,” she said. She was soaking wet in Dogface’s pool, holding onto Stone’s knees as he sat on the edge with his feet dangling in the water. A fit, pneumatically enhanced blonde in a black bikini and spike heels had just delivered them a pair of fruity cocktails. Nikki watched Stone glance at her ass as she walked away. Nikki grinned brightly. “You’re such...Read On

Ballad for a Derelict Soul

I play dangerous games with the dark Like never knowing the difference Between the flicker of starlight and a thousand-mile string Of cheap motel signs Where you pull off out of a mule-kicked life And end up dancing alone in a room reeking of bleach With the afterimage of the girl working that liquor store You stopped in so many miles and hours back Who barely noticed you standing...Read On

Butterfly Beach XIII: The Eye of Thermisto

(First entry from the Diary of V.Dorofeyev, translated from the original Slavic by O.Delacroix) i. With the help of Pavel and Yngvild, I was able to close the portal, sealing the cavern behind us before we were driven mad.  Even now, a handful of days later, the site of divinity burns like a fever in my mind like a siren, calling out to me.  My companions feel it too.  Pavel weeps...Read On

The Call

An unexpected call from a long-lost but never forgotten lover leads to a night of passion.

You sit on the train as it jolts violently from side to side.  The pitch black of the winter's night outside, blurring with the flash of neon lights as it rattles noisily towards the city centre. Wrapped in the warmth of your knee-length coat, hood up shielding you from the cold, butterflies flutter in the pit of your stomach. Their wings delicately lace in eager anticipation and...Read On

Jen

Smack

Every sinew was stretched. Her back delicately arched and her shoulders screamed with silent tension as they surrendered to the demands of the rope. One limb, one corner. The four poster bed dominated the space. Its place, dead centre, gave the room its purpose. There would be no resting here, no hiding. The perimeter of the room was a walkway around that bed and tonight, she was the exhibit....Read On

“So … I talked to my mother today.” Nikki was leaning in Stone’s bedroom doorway. She bit her lower lip and studied the top of the doorframe while he let her statement settle in his mind. But she didn’t make statements. She dropped soft grenades. He couldn’t say he was getting used to it, but he couldn’t say he disliked it, either. She was wearing a thin, white tank that didn’t reach...Read On

The Maiden and the Minotaur: Part 1

Ariadne had been chosen to be the Minotaur's next sacrifice - what would become of her?

The Lottery had taken place and the name had been drawn. Only in this Lottery, if your name was drawn you were far from the winner. Ariadne, the youngest daughter of Aegidios, a simple shopkeeper in the village was the name drawn this time. The town drew the name of a virgin girl every three months in this Lottery. You see, this was Pelatrea, and this town was cursed. Long long ago, there...Read On

Momentum

“Faster, faster…” Denise careens through the night, slicing through the darkness and the traffic. Speed feeds her hunger for thrills and it defies the rattling frame of her nerdy-cute commuter bike. It was built for a leisurely ride through the park or errands to the market. At this moment, however, in Denise’s mind, it’s a sleek and sexy racer. Although it had required a bit more effort...Read On

My Journey Into Sexual Pleasure — Part 1

It is every woman’s romantic dream, at least in England, to live in a country cottage with roses round the door and an old fashioned country garden with its informal mixture of flowers, herbs, and vegetables densely packed into a small space. In a country where most people now live in towns or cities, many in drearily uniform suburban estates, I have often wondered if the English passion...Read On

THE BLIND GIRL IN THE SNOW Part 1. Another December. A different year. "Where is that wife of yours?" Janet hugged herself as she stood waiting next to the carrier on this bitterly cold Friday morning deep in the heart of Winter. Another heavy snowfall had left the landscape covered in shades of white as I turned back to the house with a knowing smile. "You know what she's like," I...Read On

Dark Desires Ch.1

Lesbian love, first time, romance, no sex

CHAPTER I Cloudy Friday. The sky was so dark that it seemed to be mourning and the meagre daylight didn't quite reach the window of the small office. Alice looked at the clock on the opposite wall. 4:30 p.m. She suddenly realized that she had been reading and rereading the same page over and over again for the last thirty minutes without understanding a single sentence. It was quite...Read On

Snow drove in on a hard slant across the windshield of Stone’s car, idling in the parking lot of the community center. The season was supposed to be safely past this, but it was coming down like it was personal. When he’d heard the first report, part of him hoped they’d cancel, but another part of him just needed to get away from the house. The wipers were on intermittent, heat cranked...Read On

"Grope Me"

Would the man take her tattoo as provocation or invitation?

The carriage doors slid shut. There were just the four of them inside now. Further up on the same side as herself was a couple, radiating the obsessiveness of new love. Next to her, on her right, the man. She hadn’t chosen him particularly; on the contrary, he’d sat down next to her because it was one of few seats left. But that was seven stations ago. Now, as the train left the station...Read On

Peppermint Patty

Sister is addicted to peppermint. Brother is addicted to sis.

Over the river and through the woods, to Grandmother’s house we go. It’s going to be a long few days. I thought my ordeal was over when Patty went away to college, and in a way, it was. She only came home for holidays, and they were always busy, so I could usually find ways to put distance between us. It wasn’t that we had a bad relationship.  Quite the opposite, in fact. Though she was...Read On

What’s love got to do with it? Beth’s Story - Part 1

At the time, I was an eighth grade social studies instructor at our local Junior High School and had just recently finished my seventh year of teaching. That magic number earned me the security of tenure. I wasn’t going to get rich as an educator but it provided steady income, great benefits and...Read On

How does one write a porn story about the surveillance state?

I wish I could think clearer than I do. I wish I could see things better than I do. Sometimes, when you can see everything, you miss the things that matter most. My job? Seeing. And I see a lot. In fact, it wouldn’t be an understatement to say I see everything. Everything important, anyway. I stare down the screens packed into a small room, and make sure nothing bad happens.

They rode in silence back to the house. Stone was trying to wrap his brain around the last hour of his life while Nikki stared out the window with a vacant smirk. Her hand rested on her upper thigh, deceptively delicate fingers surreptitiously digging against the shape of her mound as it pushed against her jeans. He knew she felt him thinking about her. He could practically smell it rising...Read On

Better To Forget

We did it all for love.... After winter's first breath exhales like the softest phantom pain, something brought you back to me down in the valley where no one remembers what we have lost, no one remembers our names in  slow motion corteges of bodies and endless shimmering lights. I may have taken it well enough after the last time you left, it was better to not remember how you looked in...Read On

Translated, the hotel’s name was ‘Sea View’. Or ‘View of the Sea,’ Steve said. ‘Technically.’ He’d picked it for their honeymoon, knowing Jenny would love its balconied rooms, its secluded breakfast patio and its swimming pool at the rear. And she’d adore how beyond, down a calcified path, lay a private beach and the sea. He was right. Jenny loved all that, though she loved the view most....Read On

Shard 8316.2: Viewfinder

Something about it being an actual camera rather than a phone made it much sexier.

They tried filming their fucking a few times with a cell phone, with predictably hot results, but the result was still a cellphone recording, with the graininess and haphazard focus and extreme horizontal aspect ratio. Overriding all those concerns was the worry that someone would accidentally find the footage on the phone. He bought an actual video camera as a Christmas present for the both...Read On

To find and catch a Mermaid.

Someone once said: "It is not the moment itself that matters. What matters is you understand the reason why that moment matters in the first place.."

Red Delusion

A woman explores her sexuality in a dangerously addictive and submissive manner...

It's snowing again... The throb from her ankle drew her attention away from the half-written page. Sitting on her bed cross-legged and nude, and facing the freshly stoked fire across the room, Deb massaged the joint while inspecting the newest rope burns and interwoven shades of purples, yellows, and blues. She flinched with the recollection of how she got marked. It was another rough...Read On

The Last Bookshop - Black Miasma

Closer to completing the Cremorne, a malevolent force makes its presence felt.

Swatting her peachy rump, she made that yelping sound he liked.  He slapped it again and plunged deep into her.  Looking down, the black lace suspenders and stocking tops melded perfectly into her taut flanks.  His penis glistened with her juices snug around her labia.  Inside her at its hilt, she squeezed involuntarily and moaned.  Rearing up, he caught her gaze into the mirror.  Her...Read On

Adam's Aunt Ch. 01

The spark in Christine's sex life has fizzled.

Christine put on a show out of habit.  She whipped her dark hair over her shoulder as she looked back at the man that she’d met in a bar a few hours earlier.  He furiously pumped her pussy, probably close to filling the latex sheath between her and his cock.  She wore a mask of pleasure, but it was exactly that – a mask. He’d managed to bring her to her peak, but the orgasm had disappointed...Read On

Nutcracker Sweet: Part 1 of 2

A simple basketball game turns to pain and then to unexpected pleasure.

The day began inauspiciously. It was just a simple power outage, nothing more, but not long after we’d gotten to work the place went dark. No light except what came from the windows and a few battery-powered emergency packs and exit lights above doors, and other than the occasional laptop all monitors went dark; there was utter silence as the HVAC system, Muzak, and other electronic...Read On
