Thomas S. Roche is the author of several hundred published erotic short stories as well as work in the horror, crime, fantasy and science fiction genres. His published books include four anthologies of horror/fantasy, three books of erotic crime-noir, and three erotica collections. He blogs and podcasts on sex, drugs and cryptozoology at Thomasroche.com, as well as writing for Blowfish.com and Techyum.com.

Tell us a little about yourself that’s not in your official bio.

I am not a morning person, but I seem to write best early in the morning, probably because I’m not awake enough to realize how absurd the enterprise is. I now try to get up at about 5:30 so I can get 3 hours of writing in before work. It is insane, and I would rather sleep in, but it is too easy to let time pass without doing a serious amount of writing, just because the day job gets in the way. Also, my favorite Scotch is probably Balvenie and my favorite bourbon is Jim Beam.

What inspired your story “Pre-Party” in Spanked?

I occasionally write stories about what might have happened had situations from my real life been slightly different, and “Pre-Party” essentially follows that model. I attended a pre-party in the Noe Valley neighborhood of San Francisco for the Folsom Eve Ball a couple of years back and it was filled with all these amazingly hot, sexy people in extremely revealing fetishwear. Unlike other parties I’ve attended, there was no play there, other than the occasional swat on the ass following a “Hey, does that handmade Peruvian whip have a lot of thud or more sting?” — “Here, let me show you!” — which tends to be more friendly than erotic, really. None of the characters are based on the people at that party, but the general situation was inspired by it.

Your story has the added touch of a vibrator being used during the spanking: “He gives it to her, right on the sweet spot, knowing from experience that the burst of sensation is going right into her clit, or her cunt, or her asshole, or something, some magic part of her that’s going to get her off, especially with the vibe buzzing
crazily.” Was that a deliberate choice to mix things up a little? How does the toy change the spanking dynamic for them?

When I’m writing erotica, I always feel a bit guilty about making it too easy for the characters to climax. For me it’s part of the format or the genre — if everything isn’t at least a bit easier than it is in real life, then erotica doesn’t serve its escapist purpose for me. But I can’t go too crazy with everybody coming all the time all over the place with no effort, or I start to feel like it’s not so much sex-positive as sex-bullshit, like bad ’70s porn novels.

So I wanted to insert a vibrator (ha ha ha) to bridge that gap between turn-on and climax. That particular variation is also not that far from reality for me. Spanking and vibrators are unquestionably two great tastes that taste great together. It adds the intensity of the vibratory stimulus alongside the deep, thuddy-stingy sensation of spanking. In my experience, with many women the thud is what can lead to a spanking-induced orgasm, and since it’s a very different feeling than the buzz of a vibrator, it’s really fun to mix those up.

Why do you enjoy writing spanking erotica? How do you keep the topic of spanking of interest to you after writing so many stories about it?

I think spanking is hot for me because I was influenced very early with Victorian or neo-Victorian erotica, where spanking was one of the serious obsessions. Then I did spanking and discovered that it’s just packed with intense experience. There’s the power exchange aspect, the taboo, the pleasures of easy access, humiliation, intimacy, and lots of bodily contact — I could go on. Suffice it to say that spanking is a lot of wonderful pleasures rolled into one.

Every time I sit down to write erotica, it feels brand new to me based on the obsessions I have at that moment. It’s very much like having sex for me, in that respect. I think some people who contemplate writing their 10,000th description of a woman in a short skirt imagine that it would be boring, but writing’s such a sensual experience for me that it doesn’t really feel that way.

However, if I let myself write erotica about things that bore me to tears, I will definitely interfere with that experience, which is why I tend to return to the same themes, and spanking is one of them since it’s a personal obsession.

And how many, in your estimation, have you written by now?

Spanking stories, probably twenty or thirty at least. Stories overall, a few hundred, of which probably three-quarters are erotica…I keep a database but am terrible about updating it, so I’m not totally sure of the exact count.

Is there anything different for you about writing spanking erotica vs. other kinds of erotica?

Spanking as a ritual is usually very stylized with me. Spanking erotica has to be fairly limited in scope to work; I feel like I have to keep the focus narrow in order to sensually do justice to the experience of spanking.

As a reader, do you have a favorite spanking erotica story?

Tragically, in recent years I’ve had to more or less stop reading erotica because I get the same things from reading it that I get from writing it, and if I read it I don’t write it. But I do sometimes read Zille DeFeu’s blog (http://zilledefeu.wordpress.com/) and go berzerk. Zille likes the spanking. Nonfiction is more of a turn-on for me than fiction when it comes to spanking.

I remember intense spanking scenes from Victorian erotica that I read when I was young, but I honestly have never tracked them down in recent years. In many ways I prefer to replay them in my mind.

I do like spanking comics, when I find them, but I don’t really enjoy spanking DVDs. Watching spanking on DVD, so far, is for me kind of like watching paint dry.

What’s next for you?

I’m blogging pretty frequently at www.thomasroche.com, but I rarely blog about sex because I work in sex for my day job AND I teach sex ed twice a year at San Francisco Sex Information (www.sfsi.org) and have for ten years, so I have to explore other obsessions or I think I’d explode. At Thomasroche.com, I write about whatever interests me, but I tend to return to themes of history, politics, cryptozoology, pulp fiction, Victoriana, and genre movies. All of these things are showing up in the fiction I write lately, but so far none of them have added
up to any publishable erotica.

As for fiction. I’ve been focusing on horror and fantasy and crime fiction again, which is where I started back in the ’90s. For the first part of my career (1989-1993) I sold about 10% of what I wrote; then from 1993-2007 I sold 90% of what I wrote, and now I’m back to selling 10%. The reason is that I’m trying to focus on new formats and styles, and I’ve given up on trying to move stuff quickly. I’m interested in creating a much larger tapestry.

Erotica sort of came along as a path of least resistance for me, because everything decent I wrote (and most of what I did) was always about sex. But supernatural horror, science fiction and other types of imaginative fiction really constitute my first love, though I often cheat with crime fiction. So I’m enjoying going back there. Which doesn’t mean there won’t be spanking.

Below is an excerpt from Thomas’s story “Pre-Party.” Read the whole thing inSpanked: Red-Cheeked Erotica.

“What are you doing?” she whines meekly. “We’ve got to get to the party.”

The cornstarch on her thighs is lost to sweat and friction, so the stroke of the rubber up her legs is not quite smooth, but it’s worth it when he snuggles the formfitting panties over her sex, then tucks the vibe into it and squeezes.

“Oh Jesus fucking Christ,” she says, and a few other things, considerably louder, as he climbs onto the bed and drags her bodily over his lap, smearing the remnants of his come over her latex dress and not caring, pinning her wrists with his left hand while with his right he does something he knows she’s wanted since the first time he playfully smacked her ass in the kitchen, around three, when she protested weakly that she had crudités to slice.

He pulls up her skirt and exposes her ass for a spanking.

“The guests,” she says, her voice all bleating desperation as he rubs the crotch of the rubber panties, forcing the vibe against her clit so that she gasps. Then he draws back and his cupped hand comes down hard on one firm cheek of her ass. She utters a yelp, grinds her hips against him. The vibe visibly jiggles around; even in the tight rubber panties, it can’t stay absolutely still. He brings his hand down again, feeling the taut clench and the give of her asscheek. This time she doesn’t yelp; she moans.

He adjusts the vibe and lifts his hand. This blow makes her whimper, softly, as she fucks herself slowly and rhythmically against his lap, rubbing the vibe between her clit and his thigh while she presents herself, ass high, for his next blow.
He gives it to her, right on the sweet spot, knowing from experience that the burst of sensation is going right into her clit, or her cunt, or her asshole, or something, some magic part of her that’s going to get her off, especially with the vibe buzzing crazily.

He starts spanking her faster, a blow every other second, one cheek to the other, then both, then her pussy, careful not to smack the vibe—that would hurt, and worse yet, it might break the damn thing. She’s moaning and bucking, and he’s let go of her wrists because she needs them to claw at the bed. His hand’s in her mouth now; she’s biting his palm, hard, as he spanks her rapidly, adjusting the vibe every dozen strokes or so to make sure it’s right where it’s supposed to be—on her clit, making her come.

Spanking erotica interview with Madeline Glass

August 2, 2008

Madeline Glass

Here’s my latest in my interview series with Spanked: Red-Cheeked Erotica contributors.

Madeline Glass is a writer. The erotic part happened by mistake. Her website MadelineintheMirror.com began as a dating-after-divorce journal in 2005 and has been featured on Playboy Radio, Sexoteric.com and Fleshbot.com. She is a contributor at the Village Voice‘s sexuality website NakedCity.com and thinks that the Internet can save the world, if you are nice to people. Her sexy writing appears in the print anthology
Spanked: Red-Cheeked Erotica, and her book of 365 real and deliciously photographed sex positions, The Daily Kama Sutra, will be published in 2009. Madeline enjoys coloring outside the lines, eating and masturbation; usually not all at once.

Tell us a little about yourself that’s not in your official bio.

I am very competitive. I won’t play Monopoly with my kids because when I do I become a horrible, evil, scheming person and I don’t like it. But I will kick your ass at Scrabble.

You wrote on your blog that your Spanked story “Laser Tag” was inspired by real events. Can you tell us more about that? How much of the story did you change?

The initial scene when Colette takes away Nick’s laser actually happened at a Flaming Lips show last year. This guy and his friends were annoying the hell out of my friend Vix and me. So I took the tall one’s laser keyring away. The rest of it is totally made up, because I think I scared the crap out of that guy.

What I thought was interesting is that the guy in the story is the one being the brat, playing with the laser, but he’s the one who winds up spanking the narrator. Do you feel that’s a bit of a role reversal?

It’s a complete reversal, which is what I enjoyed most about writing the story. I’m not a huge fan of predictability, and erotica is so full of it. I tend to gravitate toward the unexpected and unusual in life, and I’m a bit of a contradiction myself, so the power shift was something I really wanted to do.

After he’s been spanking her with his hands, Nick gets out a switch, and Colette thinks to herself, “I hesitated. His hands were one thing, but this? This might be taking things too far. I might not be ready for this.” She goes along with it anyway, and I think this is a theme in both spanking and spanking erotica—not being sure if one is ready for the next spanking or paddling or whatever, but taking it anyway, as if to prove that you can do it. How much of this element plays a role in your story?

I think that’s part of writing a good story—erotica or not—that element of overcoming uncertainty and fear. Actually, that’s kind of what life is, isn’t it? You can let it swallow you up, or you can act like you know what you’re doing and live through it.

In “Laser Tag,” you also write, “Three strikes on the second side and I gasped with each, smiling as the pain became something better.” Can you elaborate on what that “something better” is, and how it’s related to the pain?

In my experience, after the initial sting of a slap or a strike, there’s a conversion of pain to pleasure. In my head it’s like those time-lapse films of flowers blooming, and the flowers are the waves of pleasure exploding behind my eyes. They just keep coming so quickly that the pain isn’t just hidden, it disappears.

You are one of the 100 Divas in Lolita Wolf’s 100 Divas project. What was it like to get spanked by her? You said that she “does such a good job of spanking” – how do you distinguish a good spanker from a bad one? Any advice for those doing the spanking?

Well, technically I’m not one of the divas, but the photo of Lolita spanking me is the header for her 100 Divas project. I love Lolita because she is such a professional, and can adjust herself to the needs of whomever she’s spanking. It’s not as easy as people think; I’m actually training someone how to spank me properly right now, and it takes a lot of practice. You can’t just let loose with a wallop out of the blue, without warning. Lolita takes her time—warming me up, building from her hand to a flogger to a cane. I think she spanked me for an hour during that shoot. I’d recommend her book Spanking to anyone who wants to learn from Lolita. Hey, I might even let you practice on me!

Why do you enjoy writing spanking erotica? Is there anything different for you about writing spanking erotica vs. other kinds of erotica?

When I write, it’s to tell a story; not necessarily to titillate. When I write about sex, though, what usually happens is that I end up getting turned on. That’s how I know it’s good, if I have to take a wank break while writing. I started writing the Laser Tag story just to see if I could. About halfway through I had to jerk off, so that’s when I decided to submit it. I think the main difference with this story was that I knew I was writing for a more critical audience than when I spew blogginess on the Internet, so I may have been more conscious of keeping the voice and tone of the story consistent.

As a reader, do you have a favorite spanking erotica story?

I love Alison Tyler’s “Betty Crocker Gone Bad.” Because I have a huge sloppy crush on Tony Bourdain. Like, I would even let him feed me soft-boiled duck embryo in Vietnam. That huge.

What’s next for you?

I’m lucky to be working pretty regularly writing smut for hire, along with projects I can actually tell my mother about. Not included in that last set is my stint as the Girl Friday over at Fleshbot’s Sex Blog Roundup. So if you write hot stories on the Internet, email me at madeline.glass (at) gmail..com

Below is an excerpt from Madeline Glass’s story “Laser Tag,.” Read the whole thing in Spanked: Red-Cheeked Erotica.

His cock was straining against his jeans and I pulled back to look at him. His face was serious, his eyes had lost all mischief. “Do it again,” I whispered. He smacked the other side of my ass and I moaned with the increasing intensity, feeling my pussy getting wet, both of my asscheeks radiating heat.

He growled, “You’re a naughty girl for stealing, aren’t you?”

The slaps had stopped, and I realized that if I wanted more, I’d have to play along. “Yes, I am, I’m a naughty girl for stealing.”

“And you need to be punished, don’t you?”

“Mmmm, I need you to punish me. I was wrong to steal from you. It was such a bad thing to do.” I wanted this to happenæI wanted to feel vulnerable and sexy and in trouble with this man who had so expertly turned the tables on me from earlier in the night.

“Stand up and take off your jeans.”

I backed off the couch and stood in front of him, slowly unbuttoning and unzipping and sliding the stiff fabric down my legs. My ass burned, and I let the jeans fall to the floor, stepping out of them and running my hands back up to my curves, their coolness a shock to my skin.

He sighed while watching me, and lifted his hips off the cushion. I dropped to my knees to help him out of his pants. As I pulled them down his thighs and he stepped out of them, he looked at me with the same knowing expression from the concert.

“Suck my cock, you little thief.”

God, I was wet. Everywhere. My pussy was hot and slick, and my mouth was watering. I dove onto his cock and he grabbed my head, pushing it down on his cock and thrusting his hips up into my face. He pushed me back and knelt on the floor. I was on my hands and knees in front of him, sucking him and arching my back, forcing my ass high in the air. He let his hands roam from my hips to my head, burying himself in my throat, my nose even with his pubis. I could feel his cock pass my gag reflex, and silently congratulated myself for all that deep-throating practice I’d done in college. I swallowed around his dick, the muscles of my throat closing even more tightly around him.

Spanking erotica interview with Elizabeth Coldwell

July 23, 2008

Elizabeth Coldwell is the editor of the UK edition of Forum magazine. Her work has appeared in a number of anthologies including Best SM Erotica 1 and 2, Five Minute Fantasies 2 and Spank Me. She firmly believes that naughty boys need to learn their lesson.

Tell us a little about yourself that’s not in your official bio.

I love cheese (to the extent that my brother thinks I’m actually part mouse), my favourite song of all time is ‘Only Time Will Tell’ by Asia and I’m a very dedicated supporter of my home town football (soccer for those in the US) team, Rotherham United. Any or all of these may have had some influence on my writing over the years…

What inspired your story “Through A Glass, Sharply,” in Spanked?

I was originally working on a completely different story, and then I received an e-mail reminding me of the deadline for submissions which mentioned that you hadn’t had many stories in which a man was being spanked. That sparked something off, because I haven’t written that much in which the man in one the receiving end, and I put the other story to one side. Once I knew what the character of Elliott was going to be like, I based his look on someone real. It’s someone I don’t actually fancy, which is fairly unusual if I’m ‘borrowing’ someone for a story, but he does have an incredible arse!

Your female narrator spanks her husband, Elliott, and you write, “Elliott had to find some excuse to be punished — neither of us would gain any enjoyment if I were to spank him without cause…” Within their dynamic, why does punishment have to be a factor? Is it more enjoyable to write punishment scenes than “spanking for fun” ones?

He’s very successful in his career, and she’s his support network, but having to be the corporate wife bores and frustrates her. Acting out a punishment scene is his way of indulging her and letting her take control for a change, and it also enables her to let off steam. I also prefer writing punishment scenes because there’s more in the way of anticipation and tension, which I think is an important part of any good erotic story, and because it enables me to explore situations I find hot, such as being systematically undressed and getting off on being told what to do.

I like the way you acknowledge that how we look on the outside may have nothing to do with our sexual interests; Elliott looks dominant while the narrator is petite and blonde, “seemingly designed to be hauled over his knee to squeal and wriggle beautifully as he turns my bottom a blushing crimson.” You also allude to the idea that spanking is a secret between them that nobody else knows about, which I imagine is pretty common. How does this secrecy play into their enjoyment of spanking?

I deliberately wanted to have a couple where, if people knew they were into BDSM, they would automatically assume that he was the top and she was the bottom, because that’s how it so often is, particularly in fiction, and I felt like subverting that. I think it’s also harder for men to admit that they’re the one who likes to be spanked, because somehow they would be perceived as being weak or henpecked, where in reality being able to reveal your vulnerability and give up power on a temporary basis is a sign of strength. As for keeping it a secret, in the story it’s partly because he has the sort of job where if it was discovered he was ‘kinky’ it wouldn’t be looked on too kindly, but also because if you have some kind of activity where you can use a code or an action to trigger it off, you’re already building towards a scene and no one else knows about it, or is made to feel uncomfortable by it.

As the editor of Forum (UK), have you found any particular types of spanking stories to be most popular?

Old-fashioned school discipline will always be popular – the English are still fascinated with having to go to the headmaster for six of the best, even though that was phased out in reality a long time ago. And ‘naughty girl is given loving discipline by strict older man’ goes down well, too. It contrasts to the genuine letters we receive for the magazine, which are often written by men describing how they’ve gone to another man for a spanking/punishment session.

Why do you enjoy writing spanking erotica? Is there anything different for you about writing spanking erotica vs. other kinds of erotica?

I think everyone who loves writing spanking stories does so because either the thought of spanking or being spanked appeals to all their important little places…

As a reader, do you have a favorite spanking erotica story?

I’ve read so many over the years it’s hard to pick particular ones out. There’s a well-known Scottish CP author called Sarah Veitch, who also edits Submission magazine, and for years she wrote stories which were always quite light-hearted and humorous, with a typically bratty heroine who inevitably earned herself a spanking. Then she produced a story for Forum, ‘Initiation’, which was about a woman who was going to a Master to receive her first ever spanking, and because it was slightly darker and more intense than her previous work, it always stuck in my mind. And I have a great story coming up in the mag in a couple of months, by Sommer Marsden. It involves a woman taking her husband to a man who specialises in ‘ego restriction’, because she thinks being punished will make him less arrogant. As soon as I read it, I thought, ‘I’ve got to use this – this is fabulous!’

What’s next for you?

I’ve had a story accepted for the next Best Women’s Erotica anthology (I always find it stupidly gratifying to be in a collection which has ‘best’ in the title, and the football season starts in a couple of weeks, so I’m getting ready to follow my Rotherham boys again. More immediately, I’ve got to edit down a long, rambling and probably totally made-up letter for Forum into something approaching English – what fun!

Here’s an excerpt from Elizabeth Coldwell’s story “Through a Glass, Sharply” – read the whole story in Spanked: Red-Cheeked Erotica.

“I’ll tell you what would make me happy.” My voice is soft, so that he has to stoop slightly to hear me. As I speak, I run my hand over the front of his trousers, feeling the hard length of his cock rising up toward his belly. I suspect he has been hard from the moment he knocked over that glass of wine. “Turning that backside of yours scarlet with the flat of my palm. Take off your shoes, socks, and jacket and pull down your trousers, Elliott. Then bend over the back of the armchair.”

Elliott hurries to obey. We have a leather-backed armchair in the room that would be more fitting for a Victorian gentleman’s study than our modern, minimally decorated home, but it has pride of place because it is always the centerpiece of our punishment scenes. I watch as my husband takes off his jacket, folds it and lays it on the seat of the chair. His shoes and socks follow, discarded socks tucked into shoes, shoes pushed under the chair, out of sight. Then he unbuckles his belt and lets his trousers fall to his knees. As he bends over the chair, the tails of his crisp white shirt partly conceal his firm buttocks. I come up behind him and tuck them back on themselves, then run my hand gently over his bottom, stroking it through the clinging cotton jersey of his underwear.

“What a beautiful arse,” I tell him, and I mean it. It’s a part of his body I would love even if I didn’t have any interest in spanking it, muscular from the hours he spends in the gym and the Sunday morning football kickabouts he enjoys with his friends. “But it needs to be taught a lesson. This arse needs to know that when the boss is round for dinner, we all have to be on our best behavior.”

By the end of the sentence, my gentle caresses have become firm taps. Not enough to make Elliott flinch, but enough to begin the process of warming up his bottom, ready for the harder blows to come.

“Yes, ma’am, I’ll remember that in future,” Elliott says. And then he doesn’t say anything for a while, as I begin the process of spanking him in earnest. My hand comes down on his buttocks over and over, sharp little slaps paced so that he never knows quite how long he will have to wait before the next one comes down. He can take a lot of punishment, particularly when I’m using my hand, instead of my hairbrush or the doubled-over length of his belt, and he squirms slightly but I know I’m not really hurting him.

Tell us a little about yourself that’s not in your official bio.

Let’s see… I can walk through a lawn and spot any four-leaf clovers almost instantly. I like to write really bad, super-melodramatic poetry. I collect old books, cameras, and salt-and-pepper shakers. And I have a day job that I sometimes love and sometimes hate.

What inspired your story, “Page by Page,” in Spanked?

I’m intrigued by the idea of professional submissives. I’m also intrigued by characters who, for whatever reasons, don’t want to reveal themselves too quickly or too directly. Paul and Sarah share that quality, and I enjoyed drawing this out and helping them connect.

You use a journal as a spanking implement in the story, which, as a journal writer and major bookworm, I loved. Plus, your description is so vivid: “He picked up the pace, let the book pound me harder now. Below the leather cover, my ass tingled and the flesh deeper inside each cheek opened up to the pain while I opened up, like a story. Page by page, each new word stripping back a layer here and there, pushing me—the real me—to unfold for him.” How is having a character be spanked by a journal different from a hand or another kind of toy? What were you trying to convey by that?

Everyone has a hand or can buy a paddle on the Internet, but not everyone keeps a journal these days. As a journal writer myself, I would love to be spanked by one, to be touched by something that keeps hidden the desires a writer may be too afraid to share. A diary is such a personal thing and in many ways a bit old-fashioned. When blogging came on the scene, I thought I would embrace it as intensely as I had journal writing. Not so. With blogging, something personal became public, so I still cherish my journals, the feel of pen on paper, and the privacy of it all.

Paul’s journal represents his desire for Sarah. He shares his fantasies and waits for her reaction. As a thoughtful Top, he needs to feel her out, see what she really craves — even though he’s paying her to be his bottom. Since he’s not allowed to touch her directly, he uses the diary to get as close as possible physically and emotionally. I also tried to convey that, for the first time in quite a while, a man engaged her mind, was patient enough to get personal, and understood what she needed.

Along similar lines, storytelling itself is a player in “Page by Page.” The stories Paul tells Sarah about herself and her desires help spark her imagination. How do you see their oral storytelling fitting in with your story?

Storytelling was an artificial way for them to get closer to each other. By the end, hopefully it’s apparent that working within the idea of a story isn’t just a way she protects herself. I think she sees her life as a tale unfolding and is okay with reality being there yet being held at arm’s length, like she’s looking at her actions as if she were a character in someone else’s story. Paul is comfortable with this too, so he “writes” the rest of their story while they live it.

One of the lines your characters cross in your story is that of client and sex worker. Things change after Paul calls her Sarah, her real name, and she grapples with that push/pull of attraction toward him with wanting to remain in her role. Why do you think she allows herself to break this taboo with Paul?

Because he pushes her — he wants her badly and as more than a paid bottom. And he “gets” her. She’s now ready to take a chance with a client because the odds are in her favor that he’s the one, that ever-coveted soul mate kinda guy. So she’s willing risk her professional reputation and her heart to have him cross that line.

Why do you enjoy writing spanking erotica? Is there anything different for you about writing spanking erotica vs. other kinds of erotica?

My head is full of spanking fantasies, and luckily I’ve lived out a few of them, so I really connect with this theme. The words flow and I’m there, immersed in the story, and I hope my enjoyment of writing spanking erotica comes through for the reader. I’m guessing that the more I’m into a kink, the more the story rings true for the reader. When I write stories where I’m not as into a certain activity, it’s not as much fun for me.

As a reader, do you have a favorite spanking erotica story?

My friend Bridget Midway wrote one several years back called “House of Memories” and it involves a hairbrush. It was the first spanking story I’d read, so it has a special place in my heart.

What’s next for you?

I’m wrapping up a few erotic romance stories for electronic publishers. After that I’m working on my first mainstream novel, a thriller. My stories appear with some regularity at Ruthie’s Club where I’m a member of the editing staff, and I plan to continue writing stories for them as well. And some of them will probably involve spanking 😉

Here’s an excerpt from Laura’s story “Page by Page” – read the whole thing in Spanked: Red-Cheeked Erotica.

“Where does one cross the line, Sarah? When our appointment is over, do you say good-bye, then make yourself come like I do?”

This one little confession wouldn’t hurt…would it?

“Yes,” I admitted.

“Then let me make you come. Let me touch you.”

His warmth now hovered over the curve of my ass, and I trembled. I couldn’t help it. The shiver rolling through my body forced me to make contact with the roughness of his five o’clock shadow and the smooth edge of two lips as they took a chance to make the connection linger.

“Who’s touching whom?” he asked against me, the side of his lips wetting my asscheek.

I lowered my bottom half as best I could and he began messing with the book, the empty pages fluttering like whispered secrets against my skin. A corner of the journal glided over the entrance to my ass, then probed my slick hole below. \

“Spread your legs.”

I went wide, tilting my ass up for him. Giving him access. The book retreated for a heartbeat or two until he pressed the edge of one cover securely against the side of my clit. He tested me, pushing into my swollen flesh or pulling back, while I reacted, body tense, breath shallow. Then the blank pages flew past, blowing air over my soaked cunt as they returned to the swollen knot of my clit. I rolled my hips to control the pressure, to make the pages hit where I wanted them to.

“You’re like an open book,” he told me. “Do the others see it?” He fanned the book over my clit again. “Do they?”

“No.”
