Pop Quiz on Prostitution in the 1800s

Now that my book is finished and I have a little more time on my hands, I'm getting back to one of my more favourite activites: digging through books of useless sexual trivia. It's absolutely fascinating what these authors discover. Like the following tidbit of information I found in Erica Orloff's and JoAnn Baker's "Dirty Little Secrets".

In the chapter "Can't Buy Me Love", Orloff and Baker have a sexual trivia pop quiz.


Question: "What happened to Chinese prostitutes past their prime in San Francisco in the mid 1800s?"

Give up?

Answer: "They were forced to kill themselves. Prostitutes past their prime were taken to 'hospitals' where they were given a single bowl of rice, a lamp of oil, and a cup of water. These women knew they were brought to these filthy places to die. Usually these women had venereal diseases or otherwise were ill. They were locked in a room until the oil in their lamp ran out. By that time, they were usually dead due to starvation, though some committed suicide, perhaps through hanging. If they were still alive after the oil lamp burned out, they were murdered."

Holy good mother. What a horrible fate. Especially for those poor women who 'gave' so much and got so 'little' some times.

Bless Me Father, Women's Forbidden Sexual Fantasies of Love and Lust

Well, fellow erotica readers, it's out. Finally. I have to tell you, at the rate I was writing this thing, what with every day life interruptions, I pretty much figured my third book of erotic short stories, "Bless Me Father" was destined to sit on my computer's hard drive forever. Or until I found some time when I was 80. When even I would find little use for it.

Anyway, it's published and up on both Smashwords and Amazon. Check it out! And if you get a chance, write a review. I'd love to hear what you have to say about it.

Sexual quickies and literature

"Wait--what about the foreplay?" asks the heroine in a Peter De Vries novel as she's pulled into the bedroom.

"Later," (the hero) pants. "Later!"

Best BJ ever?

Okay, women, I've got a tip for you. The next time you go down on your partner, rest your vibrator against your cheek. (Its vibrations will indirectly stimulate the penis.) Now stand back and watch the show.

Y'll can thank Dr. Natasha Janina Valdez (A Little Bit Kinky) for this.

Gloria on Gambling

If I found myself nodding in agreement with the quote below, does that make me bitter?

"Someone once asked me why women don't gamble as much as men do, and I gave the common-sensical reply that we don't have as much money.  That was a true but incomplete answer.  In fact, women's total instinct for gambling is satisfied by marriage."

Better than chocolate…

Well, I wouldn't go that far. But if you're not the head cheerleader for the taste of your partner's spunk, there may be a solution. Blend the below ingredients. Then, have your partner drink the magic elixir an hour before the fun begins.

2 tbsp agave nectar
1 cup soy milk
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp ground ginger
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp ground cloves
