I invite you to consider what makes a woman. Some Fridays, I'll even share something sexy :D.
So I'm reading "A Woman Like that: Lesbian and Bisexual Writers Tell Their Coming Out Stories," edited by Joan Larkin. I'll eventually review the book- I'm on page 184 of 326. I was even farther from "half read" before it provoked piece that lurks somewhere between a poem and a paragraph. I'm actually enjoying the book- overall- and expect I'll end up giving it 4 out of 5 stars. However, that bisexual in the subtitle set me off; as a bisexual woman, I have felt excluded from much of this book
Don't fucking add me to make yourself feel better PC-wise. I see a male body I wanna screw. I see a female body I wanna screw. I see a body so completely outside the gender binary that pronouns seem wrong for this person I wanna screw. I love women, romantically, sexually, spiritually, but that doesn't mean I'm a lesbian. My identity is mine, what I declare it to be. I am bisexual. I am a (cisgender) woman who loves women, mostly, but don't think to tell me what sort of woman (cis or trans?) that I should love. My coming out, once began, will never end. Nor do I want it to.

So TrueAwesome wants to remind us bloggers that they aren't censoring (for those bloggers anxious at the sexually explicit images/videos rule). As I've already been using TrueAwesome and because I don't support censorship (even if Blogger's decision might be more financially than morally based), I'm sending you over to my blog on TrueAwesome to read this post about the UUA principles 2 through ... because equality, growth, and responsible searching is all so important in sex:D http://trueawesome.com/index.php/en/component/k2/item/401-sexuuality-growth-and-sexual-identity-no-this-isn-t-a-bad-pun-d

Sharing WIPs (works in progress) can be so very fun! On this lovely blog hop, enjoy a bunch of authors sharing excerpts of what they're working on- get ready to add some great books to your TBR, once the author publishes :) Although occasionally you may find an author sharing a published work. Give 'em a break- these may just be roughly edited- but please do leave a comment! We authors like to know we're going in a good direction.
So I was getting set to write some more in "Tabitha and Bina in Love" for you all to enjoy this week- Tab's been talking at me anyway about getting back to her heart to heart with her dear calico who will somehow get her to stop stressing about her first cyber date with Bina- but then Vala started babbling at me in the midst of crazy church related stuff as well as work on my blog (posts for Monday and Tuesday done before church service at 8pm EST- I do love going to an online church :D). She has great timing, huh? Kinda like Melody's annoying yellow inner voice (and I've probably put those words together out of order lol).
Are you gonna keep babbling at them? My turn!
Vala, you are such a brat! I'm gonna get The Queen over here.
Vala snorts. Right. And you want him to notice that you're not getting to Annikka's nits on "Skipping"? "Oh my sweetest, most loving Queen? Joelle isn't getting her work done. I don't know she deserves the chance to invite you to her bed anymore, my Queen."
The Queen echoes Vala's snort. His grin is wide and predatory. "Joelle, really? You are going to have Vala and I talking with you rather than working on your other WIP? The blurb waiting for the one that you plan to submit some time this coming week- maybe even before this conversation goes live?"
"Well I'm busy! There's so much to do. I don't feel entirely well. How about I work on Tabitha and Bina after church?" I bat my eyelashes at The Queen, knowing that it wouldn't work on my Master either. "I'm just wound and this probably isn't the best space for me to be writing fiction in. Won't you come spend some time with me as I work on the #sexUUality posts later?"
He laughs, great big belly laughs. Vala wipes the tears from his cheeks before he straightens back up. "You sure are managing a lot of cheek tonight. Which of the principles are you on?"
"Second. I've only finished the first principle so far and I wanted to finish the principles during February. Of course, the hops on Monday, Tuesday, and today don't help."
He rolls his eyes at me. "Pretending you are not writing this Sunday evening? I will help you only if you swear not to work during service tonight; the most you should be doing otherwise is chatting with Annikka. Got it?"
"Yup. I'll behave." I giggle as he shakes his head. "Yeah, I know. My Master teases when I say that to Him."
"My Queen," Vala whines. "She's being so rotten."
"Whose submission should you be caring about?" His glare holds her still.
"Mine or my submissives, my Queen." After he wanders away, she wrinkles her nose at me. "You're lucky. I bet someone just made him come so he was in a good mood."
"Shove it." I laugh at Vala. "I'm doing what I'm supposed. Are you?"
... psst... The Queen's the same religion as me...

Are you ready for some challenging, taboo fiction? You never know what you'll find. Maybe 8 to 10 sentences of a taboo erotic book, maybe 100 words of a book review or a statement about a particular taboo. I dare you to consider each taboo participant's writing!
Panties. I don't get panties, pulling down panties, not removing them. Quite the hot thing in erotic fiction. Don't get. I don't wear panties. Like ever. Hell, I barely wear clothes, although in this brutally cold winter this year, I am wearing more than I ever do. I don't get this need for covering, for modesty. Of course this extends to other things I don't get. Like why is exhibiting one's spanked bum while doing corner time a punishment? My clothing optional mind will just never get this hint of naughtiness about panties- I guess that's why we need Emily Tilton on this hop, huh, Emily? :D

Ah, and with this week's picture, I pull from the part of me that's much more of sex educator than erotic fiction writer. Well maybe :D. Jokes, conversations about masturbation on Facebook (after I was told last week that some people found my promo offensive (#MasturbationMonday Time for Bina to masturbate to something Tabitha wrote) led to an interesting conversation about prostate massage- the highlight :D of which was my Master joking "My prostate has a cramp and needs rubbed" (I don't think that's actually possible, since the organ is a collection a fluid-filled glands lol). I'm now re-reading Dr. Charlie Glickman's "Ultimate Guide to Prostate Pleasure." In the midst of this reading, I went on pornhub.com and searched "prostate message"- I was excited to find a short clip of a man masturbating while externally massaging his prostate.
He strokes his cock, languorous hand movements. He uses his left hand, his non-dominant hand, to prolong the moment, the pleasure. His right hand glides over his chest, working his nipples into pebbled perfection. The images flash through his mind, the window display in the Victoria's Secret at the mall, the delicious young man running the frozen yogurt stand (just barely, obviously not jailbait anymore). He pushes his mind on to the porn clips he enjoyed before moving to his bed.
He pauses to pump some lube onto his hands. With a slicked left palm, he returns to the lazy caresses to his hardened cock. Up and down, up and down. His thumb presses against the vein along the front of his cock, the one that trembles with his pleasure.
He bends his knees to place his feet flat on the bed. Right arm flexed in its reach, he strives to relax the arm so his fingers can reach their destination. The fingertips slide across his sac and the stimulation makes his cock jump in response. He wiggles his shoulders to gain further looseness, further reach. His middle finger glides down his 'taint, the lube making it feel wonderful. He flattens his finger as Dr. Charlie's book says and presses, making sure not to jab.
The first dribbles of prostatic fluid drips from the head and he moans deeply. Promising himself to go slower next time now that he's located his prostate externally, he changes hands. His stronger right hand wraps around his cock and speeds up. His wet left hand resumes the massage, massaging deep and hard on his prostate. Groaning, sighing, shaking, the orgasm sweeps through his body in the way he imagines an orgasm feels for a woman.
Ropes of white cum cover his hand; his left middle finger slides into his asshole as he reclines in the joy of his full body orgasm.
"Slower next time," he murmurs and smiles.

So I hope you've enjoyed the rolling release of my review :D First a bit for #FFFiction, a little more on a linked review on Amazon. Here's all 981 words in their crowning glory :D
I received this book as a free ARC in exchange for a fair and honest review, but then I bought myself a copy too; the stories are wonderful, more than worth their 99 cent price.
I loved these stories first on the authors' websites during the Love Spanks event from February 6th-8th. However many are longer than what was shared during the event- word limit 2000. Even in the case of stories I didn't like so much, the extra words helped me to understand and enjoy different characters more. The introduction by Nikki Busch and Cindy Rizzo from Ylva Publishing added great knowledge and history to this anthology.
"The Snow Liger" by Jae: I love paranormal romance and Jae's story with a shifter and her human mate was gorgeous. So many little author details made it more enjoyable for me. Griffen and Jorie maneuvered through winter in Michigan's UP. "Writer research" made me laugh aloud.
"Mistress on Her Knees" by Anastasia Vitsky: As a lifestyle submissive and a polyamorous person, I struggled through this story even as I loved every moment of it. Trinity's thoughts gave it such a wondrous depth. However, the absolution that Graciela gives Trinity- and I feel this is only a tiny piece of it- is such a perfect act of dominance that I can't wait to see more of these characters.
"Sweet Sherrie" by Louisa Bacio: From Louisa's introduction on her blog through her additional anthology words, I loved this story. The idea that two women having sex can be rough! The tease of the title is wonderful considering what Sherri shows Desiree (and us readers) of herself in the story is anything but sweet and naive.
"Learning to Trust" by Olivia Starke: I need to admit that I didn't want to like this story at all. Madeleine's thoughts on vanilla versus kinky sexuality pissed me off- that said, my dislike is more about me than the lovely woman that Olivia wrote. By the time we get to the end of Casey and Madeleine's story, the sweetness of their trust is evident.
"The Briefcase" by Sara Daniel: Rhea and Sadie made for spanky, raunchy fun in this story! Sadie doesn't know what Rhea (her boss) plans and the extra story included in this anthology made this one hot read!
"Bank Shot" by Geonn Cannon: Meg and Gretchen's story- lovingly enhanced by its extra words. I loved how much of the additional story wasn't even sex, but flirting. How the two women banter and flirt is utterly enjoyable.
"Just Desserts" by Tara Quan: Wow! The extra words totally made this story worth it. Allison and her mother are crazy sweet to me and I love Allison working on Felicity.
"Spanking Sidney" by Leigh Ellwood: With Sidney and Kit, I was ecstatic to have an example of Kit learning how to use toys more, how to be less vanilla. Sidney in so many ways is a great teacher. The erotic level of this story is amazing from beginning to end.
"Just Chaps" by Alyssa Linn Palmer: Alex and Elly had me from the beginning of this story, even if I could relate better to Alex. Elly though, I've been a pillion rider for my dominant and I could empathize. The sex scene was more than worth the time it took to read the gorgeous, detailed set up that Ms. Palmer wrote.
"Discovery" by Anne Ferrer Odom: I loved the gamer ethic in this story, giggled at Madison's calling Harper, "Harpie." Such attention to detail throughout the wonderful story. I loved seeing Madison's pansexuality talked about.
"Accidental Date" by Erik Schubach: A red t-shirt. I had a Star Trek thought, but that didn't keep me from enjoying this hilariously erotic accidental date that was so engaging, I didn't even notice the lack of graphic sex.
"The First of Many" by Caitlin Ricci and Cari Z.: "Camellia" has so been added to my to-be-read pile, and I hope that reading this beautiful story doesn't spoil it too much for me. :D Danny and Lucy are wonderful. I love a Domme who isn't a straight man's fantasy. Danny's submission is luxurious and satisfying.
"Gold Rush" by Cathy Pegau: I beyond adore historical romance and this story more than delivered on its promise. I love the details, the characters' names (formally, P.E. Frankle and Rowena Taylor). The setting of Alaska during the Gold Rush is almost a whole character of its own. Lovely.
"Terci's Dream" by Kate Richards: Ms. Richards does a great job with setting in this dreamy short story. Terci's emotions were so upfront and honest. I loved Mistress' dialogue, how she instructed Terci in being a better person. The end- a beautiful treat.
"Dating Storm" by Victoria Cobretti: Another paranormal romance for me :D I loved it. There was just enough world-building in it that my fantasy geek was pleased. There was such exciting tension in this story along side the endearing romance. I loved the attempted first dates and Maggie's final act of working with Kalila's life.
"Love in Disguise" by Jessica E. Subject: I love, love, loved this story! Talk about world-building! Ms. Subject did an amazing job with Aeria and Sophie! Such attention to detail in this story. The surprise ending (only in published anthology) makes this a great, hot, romantic read.

I invite you to consider what makes a woman. Some Fridays, I'll even share something sexy :D.
"Love Spanks" review
An event including 17 authors focusing on F/F fiction (much of it spanking related) for 3 days online? Yum! Having taken part in Anastasia Vitsky's events in the past, I knew to await the anthology of short stories to be published after the event completed. I especially loved how many of the stories had additional story (over the event-shared story) in the anthology. The short stories run the gamut from sweet (Erik Schubach's "Accidental Date" doesn't describe graphic sex) to the graphic (I loved Louisa Bacio's "Sweet Sherrie" for its instance that love between women can be rough.)
