Welcome back to Taboo II. I’m Luscious Lia Michaels, author and owner of this naughty club. It’s Sunday so you know what that means…
The Vixen is BAAAAACK!!!
The Vixen, our hubbies, and other Sassy Vixen Publishing authors just returned from RomCon 2014 in Denver, Colorado. We had an amazing time, met more readers and made new friends. Being involved in many author hosted events helped get our names out there and bring tons of people to our table for the book signing. ALL of our books went. Tawny’s Bigfoot Chronicles literally flew off the table and rumor has it that people were trying to trade other books for them. Whoohoo!
You will be proud of us. We took every opportunity to discuss how there are some out there who try to hijack erotica and erotic romance so they can “clean it up” and make it more to their liking. You know how we feel about that! The last post we took back CUNT. This time, The Vixen wants to discuss body fluids and the use/abuse of FUCK. Yes, people can over use the word just like any other.
Go on and grab your ‘rita from Tony at the bar and take your seats. The Vixen is about to take the stage…
Welcome to Sinfully Sassy Sundays here at Taboo II. I’m The Vixen, you guide to all things sinful, sassy, naughty, and oh sooooo taboo. I had a hard time thinking about what to discuss this week because I’ve been dealing with a defending erotica and erotic romance yet again. It’s beginning to become one of those never ending struggles for myself and other authors who write on the erotic side.
Of course, I had less to defend at RomCon this year. More and more readers and authors are coming over to the dark side. LOL! Still, there were quite a few people turning white when I told them my favorite word was CUNT. hehehe. You know I had to do that. I love shocking the hell out of people, but at the same time I wanted them to know how I feel about the use of cunt and other “naughty” or taboo words in my writing. So, I thought it would be a good idea to revisit a post I did a year and a half ago on another blog.
The spark for the following article was a Facebook fan page for another publisher. Someone affiliated with them decided to post a list of their “pet peeves” about some of the submissions she’s had to read. Now, this is the fan page of a publisher that takes great pride in “bringing some of the hottest stories out there to readers.” That’s actually part of their site’s tagline, so you can understand why the following pet peeves got under my skin. I’m not one to hold back when it comes to my chosen genre. I’ll defend it to the very end just as I’ll defend the right of all authors to publish in the genres they love. The problem comes when people try to change the established genres to either clean them up or give them some heat.
With that in mind…
This week has been one of many surprises. Not only did I have to continue to defend my choice to write erotica and erotic romance, I’ve had to explain what exactly should be in these stories to be labeled as such to EDITORS and AUTHORS who should flippin’ know better! Readers look to these labels for specific kinds of stories and characters. If we start changing up the definitions, we’re going to lose our fan base.
Come on! You work for a publisher that advertises that they put out the “hottest” romances around and yet you can’t stand the mention of body fluid and how much or how little is present? You want to vomit because an oral sex scene is too detailed describing wet chins, pussies and inner thighs?
But wait! There’s more.
You have never seen someone come so hard or so often that the sheets get soaked. So obviously it could NEVER happen in real life or the fantasy worlds we create. You’ve never witnessed more than a dribble or drop or two of precum on a the head of a cock so obviously any sort of spurting of the fluid is out of the question.
Well I’ve got news for you. All of it happens and I’ve witnessed it firsthand. It’s not some made up fantasy for me and many other people. Still not convinced these things can and do occur in sexual encounters? I feel sorry for you. I really do. My advice to you is to get yourself laid by someone who can help you experience these things because you’ve truly missed out…on a lot!
Maybe yours doesn’t, honey but The Vixen’s does. Many other women experience these sensations even as far as to say their clits throb in beat with their heart when they are fully aroused. How can this be?
It’s remnant penile erectile tissue that ENGORGES with blood. Of course it can throb, pulse and ache. It can become so uber sensitive during arousal that just the act of blowing air over it can send me…er…many women into an orgasm. 😉
Okay, now you’re just ticking me off. Oh and don’t you dare say she’s just urinating during sex!
Female ejaculation does occur and it’s biologically different than urine. It can literally gush forcefully out of a woman and soak bedding, clothing, and if she’s standing the fluids can run down her thighs. Just because you’ve never experienced that yourself nor have any of your “close” friends doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist.
If you’ve found today’s discussion “icky” and something that should be left out of the romance novels you like to read, write, edit or publish than you have NO business claiming the erotica or erotic romance genre as your own.
Those of us who write EXPLICIT, very detailed love scenes leaving NOTHING to the imagination will continue to carry on in this genre without you and we’ll stick with publishers who accept us and our books. We’ll leave the less explicit, less detailed, left behind closed doors sexual encounters to you. There’s room for everyone and at all comfort levels. Stop trying to hijack MY genres because you think it’s cool or in to call yourself an erotic romance author or publisher.
Instead of going into a huge discussion how this can and does happen, I’ll just share a clip of one of my favorite movies Clerks II. Here the characters are discussing this very topic. Me doth think they protest too much! (wink wink!) If you don’t have a clue what I’m talking about here, you will after watching this scene!
