About the Duchess...


So this blog has turned into something unexpected.

Once upon a time about 9 months ago I signed up for the "intimate" section of lavalife. I wanted to meet people and explore my sexuality. I met one person twice and didn't pursue it.

But I discovered that I liked writing erotica. It was challenging and different and liberating.

So this blog has turned into a combination of erotic fantasy, reminiscences, and product reviews. I also have plans to write the odd theoretical/intellectual post about some things that have been on my mind lately. Porn vs erotica, "slut" and "whore" as terms of endearment etc. I have, you know...thoughts.

Something I wanted to point out though - I occasionally feel badly because I know some of my posts have created some confusion since some are real, and some are fantasy. You wanna know the difference? Look in the labels. Is there a name there? (Such as Flynn, or Jacques or Bunny Ears) If so, then it's a real person. If not, it's probably fantasy.

I also want to thank those of you who have been reading since the beginning. This blog has frequently teetered on the verge of an identity crisis. And so many of you have stayed with me offering your wonderful words. I can't tell you how much it means to me.

As you may or may not know- I have a whole other blog. It's a more traditional one that will include photos of myself and ramble on about my life. It's fairly well established, yet gets a fraction of the traffic that I get here. Sex sells ya know?

But this blog and the erotic writing community? It's exactly that: a community. I feel closer to a lot of you than I do to those who have been reading my other blog for years. Thank you so much for that. It was a completely unexpected side-effect of this project that really just started on a lark, and has quite possibly become the love of my life.

Anyhow, I know that I don't write nearly enough personal posts in my own voice, so I thought that I would just put it out there that I do cherish all of you, and appreciate it so much that you take the time to visit my little corner of the erotic-verse.

And for those of you who do take the time to send me naughty messages? Please do keep it up- I love them all!

I can totally relate to what you're going through, especially the comment "some are real and some are fantasy". I feel that as long as people enjoy what you write, does it matter? We're all nameless, faceless, sexual beings on the net, isn't this all a big fantasy?

Stop by my page see if you like what you see.
