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...

Today, August 9, 2017 - I am having an Amazon free day for Summer of Consent - Part 1: June. Inside, you'll learn how to get access to Summer of Consent - Part 2: July for free. This promo is for one day only, so be quick!
I think I've found a new favorite site! Some of you may know about The Erotic Book Review already, but since I've been out of commission for so long, I've been trying to make up for lost time and seeing what's out there in the World of Erotica. When it comes to people, "you can't... Continue Reading →
Long time no see, no hear! I know...I've been bad. Will you ever for give me? Pleeeeeeez? Well, not just me, but the last 12+ months have been rough. But on the plus side, I've been quite busy lately. For one thing, I finished my Summer of Consent series, or you can get it all... Continue Reading →
This is a follow up—if not a continuation of—my rant Silly Women: Stupid Is as Stupid Does?, so I may step on some toes. OK, here we go. I’ve been reading stories lately that, frankly, make me want to spew. Not because they are gory or are excessively violent, but because they are so syrupy... Continue Reading →
Well, you know I do. Read this article for some very interesting insights to porn-watching habits of women–and men.
The porn women actually want to watch
Fascinating read. Yes, women do watch porn.
In my erotic trilogy Summer of Consent, Gloria is an eighteen-year-old high school graduate who ends up having a sexual relationship with her former teacher. I wrote the story because it’s a fantasy fulfilment. Who hasn’t had a mad crush on a schoolteacher at some point? I label Summer of Consent (aka SOC) as erotica... Continue Reading →
“Political correctness” means you can be polite as fuck.
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 from Buy Me Brunch.
Or maybe this one. (My friend didn’t pause in her revels to gather photographic evidence.)
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.

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

Here’s the Question of the Week. Read the comments to get the answer.
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?
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
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 →
It’s another Loving Day 🙂
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.
“It is so ordered.”
Congratulations America. Well done and good on you.
I'm in a funny mood today. I recently read a review on a book where the reviewer said something along the lines of : “the prose was so purple that Harold’s crayon paled in comparison.” That comment made me do a spit take. It also made me think about purple prose. I haven’t read anything... Continue Reading →
"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 →
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 →
My review cherry, that is. I got my first review today on Amazon. Summer of Consent Pt. 1 has received a 5-star review! I just thought I'd share the news since my "baby" is all grown up and out the door. But, I gotta pimp my baby. Mama needs a new pair of shoes. 😉
Here’s something to get excited about. 🙂
I’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…
