3-2-1-NaNo

We're hours away from NaNoWriMo 2017! I'm live and ready to go, so if anyone wants to join me--look me up! I'm probably going to work on 2 short projects rather than one long manuscript, and the results of this writing frenzy will be released in early 2018. After they've been edited and proofed, of...

Sweary as fuck

“Political correctness” means you can be polite as fuck.

Strong Language

A friend who attended one of the Grateful Dead’s Fare Thee Well concerts in late June came back with a fashion report. No, it wasn’t about tie-dyed peasant skirts or blinged-out Birkenstocks. It was about this T-shirt:

polite_as_fuck_tee

“Polite as fuck” tee from Buy Me Brunch.

Or maybe this one. (My friend didn’t pause in her revels to gather photographic evidence.)

polite_as_fuck_cursive

Cursive does seem well suited to the message. T-shirt from Amazon.

The sassy oxymoron—civility meets vulgarity—is what tickled my friend (and me). I hadn’t seen anything like it–but then again, I hadn’t yet made an effort. As it happens, the “X as fuck” construction is highly commercial.

Sex Over Editing in Erotica Writing?

When you are an author, your book is your brand and your reputation. I

The Blue Gel Pen

I love to check out new erotica stories that people promote on Twitter. I get excited to see the words “check out my new book,” and a lot of times I’ll click on the link and look over the free preview to generate an opinion of the piece. Here’s what I’ve noticed: A lot of effort goes into the sex and little or no effort goes into editing that freshly published work. Why?

I get that writers want to capture the reader’s attention, but a lack of editing captures MY attention (any many others I’m sure) real quick and actually turns me off to reading the story. Now, I’m not talking about a left out comma or a forgotten quotation mark, I can forgive those; I’m talking about misspellings, fragment sentences, incorrect word usage, tense switching, pronoun agreement etc. These are major mistakes and seeing things like this in someone’s…

You Might Be Kinky If…

Here’s the Question of the Week. Read the comments to get the answer.

Raquel Graffen

One of my favorite comedians is a good ole’ Southern boy named Jeff Foxworthy, who is famous for his ‘you might be a redneck if…’ routines. But today my experience was a tad different. I visited the Family Planning clinic and had the pleasure of flustering the nurse so badly she could hardly talk. Come on folks, didn’t you always wonder if a butt plug reduces the effectiveness of a diaphragm?

Well, that was my uneventful day…how was yours?

Good Pussy

The Donald Trump Butt Plug — One asshole to another

I know I said I'm going to avoid talking politics and religion as much as possible on my blog, but I think artist Fernando Sosa has presented a creative, entrepreneurial, and eloquent re-BUTTal to such hateful rhetoric. They're on sale, too. Read more about it here: http://www.theguardian.com/technology/2015/jul/15/donald-trump-butt-plug-3d-printing  

50 Shades of Shade – the #AskELJames “Fiasco”

Some of you may be following (or participating) in the Twitter feed for #AskELJames. I admit that I’ve posted a few questions—and you can see them if you follow me on Twitter (@JayneMarlowe)—but they were not nearly as snarky and downright vicious as some of the tweets. Why? Because there but for the grace of... Continue Reading →

All for Equality and Equality for All!

It’s another Loving Day 🙂

The Musing Mule

Today’s post was going to be a summary of what I’ve been up to since my last post. I’ve not written for a while and things have stacked up so much I didn’t really know what to write about.
HOWEVER. A certain announcement this afternoon has decided for me, and quite right too!

It’s been a long time coming, but America’s Supreme Court (SCOTUS) has finally done the right thing and made it legal across all states for gay and lesbian couples to get married. It was a close run thing, (5 for, 4 against) but history has been made and for once the news isn’t of school shootings, but of love.

Justice Anthony Kennedy's marriage equality ruling. Justice Anthony Kennedy’s last comment before ruling that gay and lesbian marriages are officially legal in the United States of America.

It is so ordered.”

Congratulations America. Well done and good on you.

Big Man on Campus gets a passing grade!

"Big Man on Campus" (BMOC) has received its first review on Smashwords--and it's a good one! Mistress Stacie says: "It is rare to find well written erotica with a good story-line. Marlowe presents a fantastic story with two main characters that have the reader both rooting for and envying." Check it out here! http://bit.ly/1AizwPL AVAILABLE ON SALE... Continue Reading →

Cunt, Pussy, Twat: What’s in a name?

The female reproductive organ (aka the vagina) has a lot of nicknames. Perhaps the most popular of these alternate names are “cunt”, “pussy”, and “twat.” Readers and writers of erotica and erotic romance tend to have their favorites with regard to the human vagina. This is my apology for all the cunts, pussies, and twats... Continue Reading →

What do Cliteracy and Erotic Fiction have in common?

Here’s something to get excited about. 🙂

Elizabeta Brooke

Cliteracy101I’ve just read the Huffington Post online project #CLITERACY . I have to admit, as I read the article, I was astonished to discover that the medical profession had deleted the clitoris from the main textbook Grey’s Anatomy in 1947, and that in other literature there was so little mention of what the clitoris actually did (while there was heaps of info out there on how the penis produces pleasure). In fact, it was only in 1998 that Australian urologist Helen O’Connell published findings that rocked the medical world. Through dissection, she’d mapped out the clitoris in its external AND internal entirety, demonstrating not only its immense size (it’s comparable with the penis), but its sizable stock of nerve-endings,  far more than in the penis.

I’m sure those findings surprised a lot of people. They surprised me, and, probably because I don’t have a penis, I’d assumed that because of all the hype around male orgasm, it had to…
