"When I'm good, I'm very good...

November 29, 2009

...but when I'm bad, I'm better."

Good ol' Mae West. She's always been a heroine of mine, too sexy for her time.

While writing the Looney Tunes entry, I got to thinking of another Madonna ditty I've always loved, "Hanky Panky," a tribute to those whose specialty is spanking.

Check out the lyrics to the song, which I think would make great background music for "Flick Chicks."

Please don't call a doctor, 'cause there's nothing wrong with me.
I just like things a little rough, and you better not disagree.

P.S. I love that the record sleeve labels the song the "bare bottom" version.

Looney Tunes

November 29, 2009

Did everyone have a terrific T-Day? Now comes the advent of Christmas crooners. Yep, folks, Rudolph's back on the radio. I'll admit, I have a few favorite holiday ditties - "Sleigh Ride," "Santa Baby," "My Christmas Wish" - but I much prefer nondenominational fare.

So I've decided to compile a list of my most adored (secular) songs. These are the tunes I can listen to incessantly, the songs that trigger squeals every time I hear them playing unexpectedly.

Here goes:

1) "This Used to Be My Playground" -- Madonna

2) "Brass in Pocket" -- The Pretenders

3) "I Won't Disagree" -- Kate Voegele

4) "Danny's Song" -- Loggins & Messina

5) "You're So Good When You're Bad" -- Charley Pride

Now, what tunes are you attuned to?

Right on the Button

November 23, 2009

As you may or may not know, I'm a big fan of Laverne & Shirley and, as such, have always had a burning yearning to wear my first initial on my chest.

So the other day, when I happened upon a jar of monogrammed buttons in a quaint little shop in town, I just had to have one. As I fished out a button with a pink cursive "A" stitched to a black background, I could not wait to get pinned.

My button was made by a company called Two's Company, but there are many lovely letters out there. These, for instance, are pretty cute.

On another note, many moons ago, I came upon a Laverne & Shirley shirt on eBay that had the words "Lesbians Are Hot" printed below their picture. Why oh why did I not snatch that baby up when I had the chance?

Has anyone else seen that shirt? Does anyone else have that shirt? Does anyone who has that shirt have the desire to let someone else have that shirt?

Just curious.

The Hot Delta Sun

November 21, 2009

Two entries in 24 hours. It's the dawn of a new day.

God bless Google News Alerts. I got a real kick out of this:

Delta of Venus, a late-night premium cable series starring Delta Burke as a sexually adventurous older woman.

Alas, it's not to be, hence the tvshowpunnames notation. But if it were to be, instead of not to be, you know I would be watching.


One of the things that came up when I typed "Delta of Venus" into a search engine was a voluminous, voluptuous village of vintage erotica. Let's mosey on down there, shall we?

Everlasting Love

November 21, 2009

I Do: An Anthology in Support of Marriage Equality has been joyfully reviewed at Joyfully Reviewed.

Reviewer Willow heralds the anthology as "the best collection of same-sex love stories I've come across in a while."

I especially love the way Willow synopsizes my story, "Holy Macaroni (and Cheese)" in the write-up:

The wedding picture was taken when they were in first grade. The love has lasted and lasted and lasted.

Violets Are Blue

November 18, 2009

I caught Violet Blue's interview with Oprah yesterday. Violet was delightful and insightful and spoke very eloquently on the distinction between pornography and erotica. I love that she described erotica as having layers, how it's both visceral and cerebral. I just wish that the episode had addressed literary erotica in addition to cinematic erotica.

Bondage, Backsides, and Bettie Page

November 16, 2009

Best Lesbian Erotica 2010 is now available! Cleis has released the collection early. The anthology, edited by Kathleen Warnock and selected and introduced by the band BETTY, contains my contribution, "Flick Chicks."

"Flick Chicks" tells the tale of two lovers who make films, period pieces, that are geared to the nostalgically-inclined. The flicks the chicks create are inspired by the stag films of the 50s that featured the 3 B's: bondage, backsides, and Bettie Page... as well as the occasional piece of equestrian equipment...

Check out this collage of notes I designed while crafting the story.

I'm a very visual person, and the images combined with the words really brought the story to fruition on the page.

Heads or Tales?

November 13, 2009

I'll take tales, please.

Fairy tales, that is.

Check out this article, "Rise of the Fantasy and Fairytale," by Louise Ridley of the London Evening Standard. Kristina Wright, editor of Fairy Tale Lust, offers her input on the revived popularity of the genres.

Sleeping Your Way to the Bottom

November 11, 2009

You've all heard of sleeping your way to the top, but I'll bet you've never heard of sleeping your way to the bottom...

Got news on the anthology front! My short story, "Mind Your Peas and Qs," will be included in the forthcoming collection, Fairy Tale Lust: Erotic Fantasies for Women. This anthology is edited by Kristina Wright and will be published by Cleis Press in the spring of 2010.

My contribution re-envisions the story of the princess and the pea. In "Mind Your Peas and Qs," bachelors vie for the affections of a princess by proving their worth, their wealth, and their willingness to perform through the pleasure of pain.

In order to prove that he is a loyal royal, a man must be able to feel a pea wedged beneath a heap of 20 mattresses. The princess and the candidate will engage in fornication every night for three weeks. With each passing day, one mattress will be removed from the pile-high pyramid, diminishing the distance between the prince and the pea, bringing him closer and closer to the source of his suffering.

Will he be able to, um, keep up the good work and keep the princess happy?

Will he succeed in sleeping his way to the bottom?

Strip to My Lou, My Darling

November 9, 2009

Missed my three updates per week minimum last week.

{hangs head in shame}

I'll make up for it, though, don't worry.

I shall start my penance by sharing a super sexy striptease featuring the lady of the House, Dr. Lisa Cuddy, who takes it almost all off in House's head in "House's Head" from the fourth season of the series.

This is the uncut version of the scene that originally aired on TV. She's so, you know, Jewcy. And... yum. Yeah, yum. That pretty much yums - er, sums - it up.

Here you are.
