I’m delighted to announce Jacqueline Brocker, who’s here to tell us more about her fab story in Smut Alfresco, which is based in the beautiful city of Cambridge.

 

Days of Idyll: Writing ‘Meadow’ for Smut Alfresco

‘Write what you know’ is an oft-quoted phrase given to writers. I’ve not always found this particularly helpful, especially when writing, for instance, m/m fiction, or about detectives, or something set in space. There is, though, some wisdom in the statement, and I find it especially relevant when it comes to writing about place.

grantchester_meadowSo while my short story ‘Meadow’ in Smut Alfresco isn’t exactly autobiographical, I am very familiar with the place it is set on: Grantchester Meadows in Cambridge.

Grantchester Meadows are located immediately south on the river Cam, just before you reach the village of Grantchester. They have been owned by King’s College, Cambridge since 1452, but are easily accessible to all, and are as much part of Cambridge as the University itself. (In fact, I didn’t know until doing a Google search for images of the meadows, that Pink Floyd, who formed in Cambridge, wrote a song about them.)

It seemed the perfect location for a sexy interlude (ok, yes, I have taken walk along the meadows with an ex-boyfriend, so I can’t pretend the story has no bearing on my reality 😉 ). Not just for the idyllic, soothing setting – with the quiet river running past, punts and canoes making their gentle progress towards the village of Grantchester for a pint, lunch, or for afternoon tea at the Orchard (an apple orchard where writers such as Virginia Woolf and Rupert Brooke used to spend time), trees drooping into the water, and cows grazing (walkers do have to be mindful of cow pats along the paths!) – but also because, at the height of summer, it is full of people. Families, couples, friends, and visitors come with picnics, or to swim in the river itself, or just to stroll or take a bike along the bank. With that many people around, it increases the chance of being caught, or spotted, or attracting an unwanted (or indeed, wanted!) onlooker.

How could I not write that story?

The delightful thing about writing ‘Meadow’ was being able to draw on my own experience and knowledge of Cambridge. The types of people who might be on the river – students, people who are born and bred in the city – the kind of activities that happen along the river, even the likely occurrences. One brief scene is dedicated to a swan harassing someone in a canoe. Up until recently, the Cam was stalked by a misbehaving swan nick-named ‘Mr Asbo’ (that’s ‘Anti-Social Behaviour Order’ to those outside of the UK).

More than that, I wanted to convey the gentleness of the place, the warm, hazy idyll that it is to sit on the meadows, and the slow burning sexiness of being there with someone you fancy the hell out of. I hope I’ve succeeded in conveying that.

Here’s Jenny Lyn, telling us about her story, Shine, from Smut Alfresco. Warning: it contains a hunky sheriff. *fans self*

 

The venue I finally chose for my sexy outdoors shenanigans in SHINE was not the first location I considered. My first idea was on the deck of a boat, and the second, a rooftop. For the rooftop idea, I’d even gone so far as to research Bosun’s chairs. If you don’t know what that is, they’re used to do work on the side of a building or on a boat’s riggings, neither of which are for me, thank you very much. I played around with both story settings, but never really got a strong feel for the characters. No connection to them at all. Then one night I watched an episode of Moonshiners and inspiration struck.

I absolutely adore being born and raised in the south. From the deep-seated traditions passed down through generations, to the sweltering temperatures and hummingbird-sized mosquitos. I’ve wanted to write an erotic piece that featured the south for some time. Now, making one of my characters a moonshine runner might not sound too flattering, but anyone who’s actually from the south will tell you that’s not a slight. Yes, it’s illegal to run moonshine, but for a lot of southern families it’s also part of their heritage. My grandfather happened to brew “white lightning” for his own personal consumption back in the day.

I also wanted to explore the dichotomy of being drawn to someone on the opposite side of the law from which you stood. Of being faced with a choice on what you would do when cornered, or if you were pressed to make a decision on whether to close your eyes or draw a line in the sand. It’s not always black and white. When emotions get involved, things tend to turn gray.

As far the location for the sexy times, who doesn’t want to cool off on a sweltering summer day? A dip in a natural spring will certainly do the trick. Water so cold it steals your breath, then warm sunshine to dry you off afterward. After spending every summer of my teens at a local spring a bike ride away from my house, I can attest to how refreshing and fun it can be.

A secluded oasis, a hot girl in a bikini, and a hunky sheriff who’s not afraid to use his handcuffs… Have I made you thirsty for more? I hope so.

Cheers,

Jenny Lyn

Book Review: Bad Angels by Rebecca Chance

Bad AngelsBad Angels was sent to me for review by the publisher, and I’m very glad they did. It’s not quite what you’d call erotica – I believe it’s classed as a bonkbuster. Basically, it contains sex scenes which are a little graphic, but not too full on.

The book tells the story of a luxury apartment building in London, which houses celebrities, oligarchs and other people who have the ridiculous amount of cash required to live there. There’s also a very high quality plastic surgery clinic next door, and it owns some of the apartments so those who wish to recuperate in extreme privacy may do so – and there are also nurses at hand to administer their after care. It’s Christmas time, and there’s an awful lot happening in Limehouse Wharf. Broken hearts, divorce, marriage, attempted assassinations, love, unexpected love… it’s all going on.

I really enjoyed Bad Angels. I haven’t read anything by Rebecca Chance before, but I’ll definitely seek out her work in the future. Her writing flows really well, it’s very engaging and the humour thrown in had me laughing out loud on more than one occasion. It’s a long book, but it certainly didn’t feel that way – each chapter had me eager to read the next, to find out if the residents and staff of Limehouse Wharf had a happy Christmas and New Year. Definitely recommended if you like your books with sex, scandal and humour.

Where And What Is The Gspot?

Everest Vibrator

If I were to mention the name Gräfenberg to you, would you have a clue who I was talking about? I am inclined to think not. However, the fascinating concept of the Gspot was named after him. Gräfenberg was a German gynaecologist. In 1944, his discovery of a new erogenous zone would pave the way for further studies and indeed spark the concept that a woman can, in fact, ejaculate.

What is the Gspot?

The Gspot is said to be an erogenous zone located between 2-3 inches of the front of the vaginal wall. Widely argued for being a highly sensitive area, which when aroused is said to be exceptionally satisfying for a woman. Stimulation via a vibrator is said to be particularly arousing due to the constant pressure.

The history of the Gspot

Starting in the 1600’s the Gspot was mentioned when a Dutch physician Regnier de Graaf linked it with the male prostate. The term Gspot was named after Gräfenberg by Addiego in 1981 during further studies.

Studies

The amount of studies into whether the Gspot exists, are actually quite surprising. Do they suggest that a man will go to any lengths to please his woman? I must confess, exploring the possibilities of how the studies would have taken place, has indeed made me smile on more than one occasion. Of course, the female participants would have done this solely in the name of science! Absolutely! Where do I sign up?!

Stag Shop - Hamilton (on Upper James Street)

What does it feel like?

Studies suggest, that constant rubbing of the Gspot, is said to make a woman feel like she wants to urinate at first. So far, this isn’t exactly tickling my fancy. However, if you ignore this feeling for a while (erm… what?!) then you are said to feel a building of excitement, followed by enormous pleasure (that’s more like it!). Perhaps the investigation of whether you possess a Gspot isn’t for everyone, but it is certainly a fun way of exploration, either by yourself (May I recommend a vibrator?), or with a partner as part of your foreplay.

Gspot – does it exist?

Considering the level of studies in this area, it is fairly amusing to discover that there is actually no definitive proof of whether the Gspot actually exists or not. I am amused as I was once told by a male friend that ‘you women are hard to figure out’. Little did he know how hard!

Scientific study has branched into areas, where scientists have tried to connect the Gspot with other areas of the vagina. Some consider the connection between the Skene glands and the Gspot to be weak. Some consider the clitoris to be responsible for all areas of sensitivity involved in a female climax. Some believe that anecdotal evidence is insufficient. How about we lay it out in simple terms? Most women don’t actually care whether the Gspot actually exists or not. If it is a fantasy that every male tries to achieve, to hit that delicious spot every single time, women are hardly going to complain now are they?! One thing the Gspot has done for the greater good; is to create a level of achievement in the pursuit of sexual happiness.

Whether the Gspot exists, or not, a bit of mutually agreed ‘exploration’ certainly wouldn’t do relationships much harm. The act of foreplay can be immensely satisfying. Indeed, there are many areas of the vagina, that when stimulated, at once, or altogether, can build up to a stunning climax. Gspot or no spot, as long as you hit the ‘right spot’ most females are fairly content.

Sex Toy Review: LifeStyles A:Muse Personal Pleasure Massager

LifeStyles A:Muse Personal Pleasure MassagerDespite its relatively innocent name, the LifeStyles A:Muse Personal Pleasure Massager is far from it. This is one sweet-looking purple toy which really packs a punch!

It has five vibration types, each with three speeds, so there’s plenty to keep you busy right there! The A:Muse is great for playing with a partner, or alone. Its soft and smooth surface means that it’s perfectly suitable for massage, and equally fun for use on your more intimate areas.

It’s fairly quiet as vibrating toys go,  and only takes 2 x AAA batteries, which is amazing when you consider how powerful it is! It comes complete with a nice pouch, too.

Overall, I’d definitely say that the LifeStyles A:Muse Personal Pleasure Massager has more pluses than minuses – it’s versatile, powerful and super-orgasmic.

In fact, the only downside is that it was really difficult to get the cover off in order to get the batteries in. I followed the instructions to the letter and still struggled, resorting to a pair of scissors in the end (please don’t try this at home! 😉 ). So make sure you put the batteries in the toy well in advance of being ‘in the mood’ and you’ll be fine. Plus, the fun that’s to be had definitely makes it worth the trouble!

So if you’re looking for a new toy for your box and are tired of rabbits – this is perfect. Get yourself to Lovehoney and place your order pronto!

Yay – Lovely Review of The Great Outdoors!

Well, today has been a very nice day indeed! The lovely Justine Elyot reviewed my lil eBook The Great Outdoors on Smashwords! Here’s what she had to say:

No chance of the characters in Lucy Felthouse’s pair of outdoor-themed erotic stories catching a chill! These girls know exactly how to warm up. The first story, Bird’s Eye View, is a deliciously explicit account of an unexpected opportunity for some voyeurism – and it CRIES OUT for a sequel. I, for one, would love to know what happens during Karla and Tom’s woodland stroll. In Fun In The Forest, Anna rejects a team-building exercise in favour of a little one-on-one with a sexy burly Scots woodsman. It’s all good dirty fun and has certainly inspired me to take a tramp in my local woods as soon as possible.

I’m officially squee-ing!! The book costs just $1.49 on Smashwords, which works out at less than £1! Bargain. It’s also available on Kindle, for $3.51 (Amazon’s idea, not mine!), which is about £2.30. So if you’re looking for some outdoors smut, you’ve come to the right place!

In other good news, I found out that a story of mine has been accepted for publication by Ravenous Romance! You may remember I had a story accepted last year in their lesbian anthology, I Kissed A Girl? Well, this time, my story Shattered Resistance is going into supernatural anthology Fangbangers. I’m very, very excited – I had a peek through the manuscript and let’s just say I’m in very good company! I’m not sure of the release date yet,  but I’ll be sure and let you know as soon I do!

Right, onto my next story… a non-erotic love story, believe it or not. Just an experiment, don’t worry – I haven’t gone mad (any more than usual, anyway).
