How Hetero Are You?

Gotta love it – I took the quiz at Stockholm Pride. Here’s my score:

 

1% HeteroAdrianaKraft is 1% HeteroHow hetero are you? How hetero is Martha Stewart? Try out any Twitter name and get the real picture. Are we really the words we use? Hope to see you at Stockholm Pride!

 

The quiz analyzes your Twitter stream – who are your friends, and what are the words you use. I’m proud of the friends I keep! I had to laugh a little at the words that earned my rating, though – available, gay, lgbt, whiskey, stonewall!

Available – well, not me, personally, but a word I use lots when I post about a new book release: “Available Now at…”  Gay and LGBT mean exactly what they say, as does Stonewall. I write erotic romance that nearly always features at least one bi character, sometimes more, sometimes gay or lesbian characters as well. I support marriage equality and I re-tweet news and blogs for the cause whenever I can. Speaking of which, check out @HersbandAndWife on Twitter or visit their website to read about their Marriage Equality Bus Tour.

Whiskey? Quite frankly, I’m a little put off that the word turned up as a criterion for my Het score. What, LGBT folks drink more whiskey than straights? Talk about it more? Tweet about it more? I don’t talk about it at all – I just include the name of one of my publishers in lots of tweets: Whiskey Creek Press Torrid. A great place to check out with lots of lgbt erotic books, btw.

Check out @stockholmpride on Twitter and the Stockholm Pride Festival website for more news and discussion. This year’s Pride theme is Hetero: “The theme has its focus on how norms affect the daily lives of LGBT persons, what the consequences are and how they affect society in general.” They’re looking for personal stories about the theme and would love to have yours.

I think their theme rocks – all of us fall somewhere on a continuum between gay and straight, and the more people come to understand that, the faster we can reduce hate and prejudice, not just for the LGBT community but for the entire planet.

 

Toys and Where to Get Them

I’m blogging today about toys in sexy scenes at Midnight Seductions with links to excerpts from some of my fellow Midnight Seductions authors, so I thought I’d hop over here and talk some more about toys, what you can do with them and where to find them.

 

There was a time (not gonna say how long ago) when I thought toys were merely a poor substitute for the real thing, something to fall back on if there’s no one around for a while. That was especially helpful after my first marriage ended in divorce, but when I fell in love for real and married my current husband, the toys went out with the trash and I didn’t even tell him!

 

A wedding anniversary spent in Las Vegas ended that era – you can get anything you want, legally and in the store in person, on the Las Vegas Strip. Our first trip was like being in a candy store! As you can probably tell, lots has changed since those days. We’ve moved from just enjoying toys to writing scenes about them so others can join in the fun.

 

The next installment in our Meghan’s Playhouse series makes some very special use of toys, in threesomes and foursomes!

 

AprilSwings_Front

April Day deeply loves her husband Derek, but something’s missing. To spice things up she books them on a Caribbean cruise for their seventh anniversary. She’s not sure what she’s looking for, but she knows she’s found it as soon as she spots the delectable sprite of an actress who stars in the ship’s daily shows.

Meghan Keenan’s having a blast with her latest squeeze, Josh Hendricks, who writes and directs the shipboard main shows. Should she turn down April’s request to heat up her marriage? And if she accepts, where will Josh fit in?

Derek is stunned by his wife’s brash pursuit of the hot young actress. Must he match her boldness to keep her from leaving him?

One of April’s longtime fantasies is to be in the middle of a man sandwich enjoying a D.P. Meghan’s happy to share her boyfriend to fulfill April’s dreams, but she’s never one to be left out of the action. Here’s a brief taste of that scene:

 

April sighed, basking as if she were in a hot tub. There were no water jets—only tongues, spreading their heat across her flesh. April’s eyes snapped wide open when Meg twisted a nipple.

“Hey girl. You make an incredible dessert.”

“Ah.” April breathed deeply. “And you guys know how to appreciate a dessert.”

“We’ve been eating without you.” Meg’s lips bowed into a smile. “Where are our manners? Perhaps you’re ready for your sandwich.”

“Thought maybe you’d forgotten.”

“Not a chance. I see two very hard cocks in waiting. Maybe if you can still move we ought to have you climb on top of your husband and stretch out.”

“With his cock in my pussy?”

“Where else?” Meg laughed and looked at Derek, who had stretched out on his back with his cock straining toward the ceiling. “Looks like one guy is ready. Come on.”

April smiled at her husband as she straddled him and slid down his chest. “Nice,” she murmured, as Meg tapped Derek’s cock against her pussy. When she felt its head at her opening, she pushed back, impaling herself easily on his shaft. She wiggled back and forth getting comfortable with his girth. She leaned forward to kiss his mouth and then settled, reseating his cock.

April licked her lips at Meg, who knelt beside them facing her. She held a long flexible dildo in her hands. With a smile, she said, “I’m not going to be entirely left out. And I thought you might like to see what’s happening with your sandwich.”

 

Of course you’ll have to wait for the rest of this scene til the book comes out September 1st at Whiskey Creek Torrid – but in the meantime, here are some terrific toy websites to inspire your fantasies!

 

 

Paula’s Pleasures Lingerie parties, adult toys, interviews and great articles on women’s sexuality. “While my site talks a lot about lingerie parties, there is also some great information about female sexuality and some valuable advice on improving your intimate relationships (we can all use a little help in this area from time to time). Whether you plan on hosting a lingerie party or not, please click around in my “Sex Education” section and pick out the subjects that interest you the most. I hope it’s a fun and unique learning experience for you!”

 

Signature Sensuality A very classy toy site specifically for women. “Sensuality and sexuality is an important part of all our lives. Often, it is easily neglected or ignored. Especially women find they have questions or issues with satisfaction, arousal or libido. Signature Sensuality provides a comfortable and tasteful setting to address these issues and perhaps offer some solutions and resources.”

 

Sinclair Institute One of our favorites, and we’ve been customers practically since they were founded! “The Sinclair Institute, founded in 1991, helps couples discover how to improve their love life, how to have better sex. We create ground breaking sexual health products such as the Better Sex Video Series® and the Better Sex Synergy Pleasure System. We also sell the best-of-the-best sexual health products created by other companies.”

 

Adam & Eve – if you can’t find it here, you probably can’t find it anywhere!  “Sex toys are a wonderful way to bring new vigor to your sex life. Sex should excite and enliven you; it’s a primal need for all adults and Adam & Eve supports discovering new sexual pleasures. Adam & Eve offers a wide selection of adult toys that range from dildos and cock rings to vibrators and male masturbators. Sex Toys can be used alone or with a partner and are designed to aid in your sexual desires and enjoyment.”
