Coffee and Kink and I met at Eroticon this year. We decided to create a book club for this summer and we’re so excited to launch the website today!
The Sexy Summer Book Club is a celebration of new erotic writing. Each month of summer we’ll be discussing, and writing about, a recent publication from memoir, self help and erotica.
You can get involved by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org to be added to our mailing list.
We’re also announcing the book for June; Girl on the Net’s How a Bad Girl Fell in Love. Our website offers prompt questions and suggestions for response pieces. Send us your responses and we’ll publish them online in June. More books will be announced over the summer.
I’ve written a guest blog for Kayla Lord’s website about squirting.
Kayla and I met at Eroticon and we ate lunch together which for me was a moment of secondary-school-sit-with-us-at-lunch-type acceptance. Except we talked about squirting. I was inspired to write this blog for her, which describes an experience I had some years ago.
A huge thank you to Kayla for publishing this blog. You can follow her on Twitter or check out the rest of her website for some really hot reading.

Today Purple Prose: Bisexuality in Britain is published.
I contributed a couple of passages to this book and attended the fundraising party last year to read these out loud.
I backed the crowdfunding campaign and received my advance copy which I have loved browsing through. To read a collection of experiences and observations from bisexuals in the UK is really important. Within the book there is an amazing range of perspectives and I recommend this to anyone interested in learning about bisexuality or exploring their own sexuality.
Check out an early review from The Book Bag for more details.
It was great to be part of this project and to meet Katy Harrad, the editor, who has worked incredibly hard to bring this representation of British bisexuality to print. I also met some of the contributors, the chapter editors and Eve Rickert and Franklin Veaux, who own publishing company Thortree Press.
Their collection of published work is fabulous and I’ve had the pleasure of unexpectedly reading Frankin’s own book, The Game Changer.
Please check out Purple Prose (print and kindle versions are available) on Amazon or via publisher Thorntree Press’ website.
Last month I wrote an article for The International Business Times featuring erotic filmmakers Erika Lust and Vex Ashley.
The article was published at a time when Bollywood actress and former porn star Sunny Leone was praised in social media for her grace under the pressure of a sex-shaming interviewer. A positive moment for women in the porn industry but highlights how far we have yet to go.
