The #SistersInSmut Convention

My smutty sisters and I did a thing. Actually, we did several things. If you follow me, you know I am, as Mischa Eliot framed it, “in a triad with her and Oleander Plume.” The threesome generates massive energy and smut filled power. And with our triangle, we brewed up a Pleasure Platform, a podcast, and then a home where it can all live. That home is the Sisters in Smut website. But wait, there’s more. And for our crowning glory, we created a Convention. Yes, I said the word. And I know what the word means. The Sisters in...

Please, Continue Counting

This is the second story in the Hiking Series. You can read the first here, Purchase Knob Tattoo. After the switchback, we lost sight of Bryan and Rachel. Sarah and I continued in silence up the trail. It was my usual quiet. When I have something to say, I say it otherwise I count. 4,162 steps. I counted as I watched her sexy legs move. I counted as she pursed her lips. When most women find out, they hate that about me. I’m a statistics guy, sue me. Sarah glanced over her shoulder. “Do you think they’re doing it?” Well,...

Purchased Knob Tattoo

I promised hiking stories. Here is the first one! I loved hiking in the spring. The sunshine bounced off my cheeks, and I felt alive. My best friend, Sarah and I left late morning, so the air had warmed. She had scoped out a new trail and wanted me to see it. “New boots, Rachel?” “Yeah, I thought I’d break them in today. How strenuous is the trail?” “It’s moderate. That should give the leather the space to bend and flex.” Sarah picked good hikes for pace and a view. I loved to hike because it created extra energy for...

Purchase Knob Hike

There are four of us. An accountant who lives with a thriller writer and a lawyer tied to me, the erotica writer. Sounds like an exciting crew, right? Writers connect, and we have. This season, we shared our new houses with each other. We joke that each couple has a beach house and a mountain house. This is my week to experience the creativity of the mountain house. All four of us love the outdoors. For our first official hike in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, we climbed Purchase Knob. I’ll be writing a short story from this hike,...

Beyond the Backyard

I was out of town again. Lovely inspirations show up. If you’re reading, EK, you started this. “Come on over and take a look,” said Hal. He had pulled out the photo album of past meetings for his reunion group. Something was up. Hal wasn’t sharing. Reminiscing was more accurate. When I spotted the picture of him with Janie Matthews, my intuition was confirmed. They looked great together, and it was obvious he had a thing for her. Even though he had my heart, he still carried a flicker of “what if” and I could work with that. The night...

Tending the Home Fire

This story is a serial and started with The Calendar Man. This is episode five of the firefighter’s adventure with his yoga-mat mate. Sometimes I hated my firefighter job when it interfered with my sex life. Tonight, it sure did. I was ready to negotiate with Macy, so I could partake of her kinky hotness, but the alarm fucked that up. As fast as headquarters called me in, they called me off. Had I lost the moment with her? She had agreed to stay. When I walked into the house, I found all the lights on. It was quiet, too....

Heading into the Fire

This story began with The Calendar Man. This is episode four of the firefighter’s adventure with his yoga-mat mate. Todd and I were about to negotiate what we would do next when his fire call alarm surprised us. I thought he had the weekend off. Todd grunted, rolled off the bed and called the station dispatch, which brought an end to our kinky games. “Macy, I didn’t mean for things to end like this.” He jumped into a pair of sweats and pulled a shirt on. “I understand. How long will you be, Todd?” “When they want more backup, time is...

Grit and Persist: Backstage in a Writer’s Life

Most folks never know what goes on behind the life’s curtain of a writer. Here are events that have happened in my life over the last two weeks. Writers by the Sea-My Local FWA Chapter For our March meeting, I shared the stage with Mark Ezra Stokes as we presented The Author’s Digital Footprint. We had collaborated on the topics we would address with the main idea of how writers can get readers to their books. I started my part of the presentation holding a clipboard asking the audience to sign up for my newsletter. I explained that if they signed...

Kinky Boots on Fuchsia Sheets

The lovely boots for this prompt came from sub-Bee. Check out more here. Damon’s request stunned me. Why did the room have to be frigid? I hated to be cold, but he liked to challenge me to work through it. First, I had to replace the sheets on the bed with the ones he asked me to use, the damn fuchsia ones. I smoothed them in my hands as I walked to the bed. At least the satin finish soothed my mind, but it provided no clue to his plan. Second, he wanted me naked on the sheets wearing those...

Fangirling in Fernandina

It has been one month since I posted a blog. There has been a lot happening in my life. In the first two weeks of February, I prepared for my guests who visited the last two weeks of February. My focus for the first two weeks of March was dedicated to my root canal. I will gloss right over that and move on to my discussion. The Amelia Island Book Festival February marked the 17th Annual Amelia Island Book Festival. Adriana Trigiani was the keynote speaker for the Kick-Off Luncheon. David Baldacci introduced her as “his Italian sister,” and the...

Dr. J.’s Collaborations

I enjoy week’s where I collaborate with other writers. This week I had three such adventures. First, Nick Tanek asked me to suggest authors who would answer questions about BDSM erotica. I looked to my Sister in Smut, Mischa Eliot, and my Wicked Pens Colleague, Nia Farrell for their specific thoughts. What I appreciate about Nick’s perspective is that he works in a supportive community. That is an essential theme for my fellow authors and me. We work to build each other up. Check out what got covered in Nick’s blog this week. Our BDSM Erotica Author Friends by Nicolas...

Fire Dance

Those leather bindings got my brain going with this week’s picture on Masturbation Monday. I shared them with Macy and Todd. Here is their episode three. Start from the beginning with The Calendar Man. Who the hell was this woman? I undressed, heeding Macy’s words. “Todd, where’s your bedroom?” I nodded toward the hall. She gathered her bag and some of her items. “Be ready, when I call you.” Ready. Ready for what? “I figure the further away I am from you, means you can get the cock rings on. Both of them. And then, I’m binding your balls.” Like...

My Pleasure Platform

Last Saturday night, I took part in a wild interview for Consensually Speaking with Gio. My Sisters in Smut, Mischa Eliot, Oleander Plume shined. And at the end, we all made parting comments. I said, “I have a pleasure platform, and I’m going to use it.” Did I issue an imperative for myself? What did I mean? How did that fit for us erotica writers? It caused me to reflect on the picture below. I created it several months ago. This idea must have been sitting in my subconscious, but I hadn’t considered it this way. Pleasure Platform Defined At...

Catch Dr. J. Reading Her Erotica

Last week I was a guest on the Rob and Slim Show. We had thirty minutes of sexy repartee about my sex therapy world, online dating, and being sex-positive. Ending the interview, I read an excerpt from my story “Infused Leather” from Best Women’s Erotica of the Year Volume 3, published by Cleis Press and edited by Rachel Kramer Bussel. Take a look at the guys on YouTube while you Listen. Click Here: The Rob and Slim Show Interview with Dr. J.

A Firefighter’s Date

Last week I started the new year off with a story created from a photo that I called festive lights. This week Kayla Lords added a hot dick pic and it seemed to move last week’s story along. Please start at the beginning by reading The Calendar Man. “I am not chicken.” The scrunched-up lines on Macy’s face held a blend of outrage, embarrassment, and lust. So, was it the dare part that caused outrage, or was it me knowing she orgasmed in public and was embarrassed? The lust well, of course, just had to be me. “Then you’ll have...

The Calendar Man

My phone buzzed in my hand. Tricia. “Hey, Macy. Are you in the yoga studio?” “I’m just leaving. Why?” “Stop and look at the bulletin board.” “I’m already in the car. What is it?” “There’s a fundraiser tonight for the domestic abuse shelter. You have to go with me.” “C’mon sis, you always drag me to the things last minute.” “I do, but you always have fun. We’ll have another crazy sister story to tell. You’re not chicken, are you?” I hated it when she called me that. She’s done it since we were kids. “I’m available. What time?” “I’ll...

Dr. J.’s 2017 Year End Review

I write this post sitting at my childhood dining room table. This month has been a bittersweet time for me. I have lost two family members and supported another during an emergency surgery. Writing has not been my number one focus for December, but I wanted to take this time to make an abbreviated update on what I have accomplished this year. REFLECT AND TAKE STOCK. I always stop and remember December 29, 2015. That was the date my first story went out into the world. It is hard to believe that was only two years ago. In May as...

Let the Writer’s Retreat Begin

I drove through a forest of dense hardwoods, down a two-rut road to reach my destination on the peninsula’s end. The shimmering lake waters greeted me. I pictured my friends, Heather and Darryl sitting inside the cabin working away. They had arrived two hours before me, and as I drove, I felt their writing energy pulling me along the road. Spending time with friends who no longer are a fifteen-minute drive away is a precious commodity. My heart sang. After a hello break, all heads were down. I opened my computer to begin my writing process. Time is an artificial...

Icy Hot

The chill in the room continued to drop. My teeth chattered, but I had to stay focused. Rod had never used temperature this way to ramp up my desire. If I wiggled my foot, I touched the cold wrought iron bedpost. If I jiggled my hands, the icy metal of the handcuffs set me off. I imagined that even my warm breath made a little cloud in the air as I exhaled. What do I do now? The cloth blindfold was the only thing that could have provided warmth, but all it did was taunt me with the idea of...

My Legitimate Seat at the Erotica Table

“Hi. My name is Dr. J. I am an erotica writer.” Your turn. As an experiment, insert your name and make that statement to someone. Did you hesitate? What was your body response? What was their body response? What did the person say to you? If your experience was like mine, you received an instant like or a dislike response, no in-between grey area. This week I have confirmation that I am an erotica writer. My work releases on Tuesday, November 21 in Best Women’s Erotica of the Year, Volume 3. Read what my editor, Rachel Kramer Bussel said about...

A Dirty Martini and Other Naughty Things

This ninth story finishes out the current Beth, Rafe, and Mara adventure, but it’s not the end. Go see what happens. If you want to start at the beginning, click here. Because of our long grueling workweek, Beth and I had not talked about her sexual adventure with Mara. I had not yet shared the hand-job events between Jason and me or the blowjob he gave me. But now that Friday night rolled around, I was ready to spill my story and compare our notes. We headed out to hear our favorite local rock and roll band at a swanky...

Two Years Down the Writing Road

Two years ago, I attended my first Florida Writers Conference, 2015. I arrived with only an idea of what fiction writing was all about, and I learned so much. This week is the annual Florida Writers Conference 2017, and I’m excited to go. Since I’m a little further down the writing road, it will take on a different feel.       I will be staying with two women from my Pen Ten Group, Editor, Heather Whitaker and Author, Laura Lascarso. Heather and I met six months before I went to that 2015 FWA conference. I have attended several of Heather’s...

My Writer’s Life: 5 Times I Laughed and Learned this Week.

This past week had five lovely moments of laughing and learning. 1-My Live-in Editor. Every writer should live with an editor for a while, especially if it’s your favorite. For me, that would be my friend, Heather Whitaker. While she worked on different manuscripts at my dining room table, I experienced her editing process. We traded words and ideas, storyboarding, micro-tension, internal and external conflict. The learning curve was fascinating. I stayed up late, I slept harder, and my dreams commenced. It was an invigorating experience. Every writer should take the opportunity if they get it. Oh, the laughing and...
