Naked Reader Book Club Discussion: Sweet Confessions— Erotic Fantasies for Couples — edited by Violet Blue (January 10, 8-10 PM EST)

NuMe NuMe
Welcome to the Naked Reader Book Club! The fabulous Sacchi Green will be our host this evening. Tonight we'll be discussing Sweet Confessions— Erotic Fantasies for Couples — edited by Violet Blue. We'll be focusing on erotic confessions. What’s your secret craving, your naughty fantasy… what makes you breathless?

In Sweet Confessions, Violet Blue showcases inspirational “you can do it, too” tales that are perfect bedtime reading for lovers. These outrageously sexy stories break the mold in literary excellence. The lust-inciting fantasies include spanking, exhibitionism, role-playing, three-ways and sensual adventures that will embolden real couples to reach new heights of passion. “Waisted,” by Angela Caperton, is a Cinderella story of corset fetish sex, while Liv Olson’s couple in “All Shaved Up” take turns daring each other to smooth down and go further. “The Female Gaze” by Rachel Kramer Bussel is a showstopper of sexual confession and romantic lust and risk, and Alison Tyler’s nooner in “Counterpane” proves just how exciting the familiar can be when you fully unleash your fantasies. In Violet Blue’s own words, “The stories I’ve chosen are explicit, well thought-out, cleverly crafted and arousing as hell. Trust me. I tried it all at home.”

Whether you've read the book or not, everyone is welcome to join the Naked Reader Book Club discussion! If you have had a chance to read Sweet Confessions, feel free to drop in and give us your opinion on this book.

I posted a review of Sweet Confessions. It is a very interesting read - even for a "vanilla" gal like me.

I started this book the night after Christmas. Finished half in that night. Had to stop because I was so painfully aroused. LOVE IT.

Violet Blue's introduction is so deliciously detailed that I'm only giving you the first half here, to read beforehand if you get a chance. The rest I'll slip into the discussion, bit by bit, rather like lovely, round, filling beads, to make you squirm.


introduction: erotic exposure and the thrill of the chase

To have sex, one of you is going to have to be the one to say, “I want to.” As much as we’d sometimes like to avoid that scary moment, it is inevitable. If we want to get to the good stuff, we
have to be vulnerable, even just for a second. It is a risk whose rewards far outshine the possibility of an unwanted outcome. When you’re with someone who makes you feel that crackle of electricity, that lust that gets under your skin and sinks to the meeting point of your most vital parts and stays there—when you’re with that person you know you can ask for maybe just a bit more. You feel it. It’s a circuit of arousal and erotic inspiration that flows when you make contact: skin contact, eye contact, heart contact.

It turns “I want to” on its head. It means you might be able to ask for something you really want, something you never got to ask for before. New fantasies come with hot sex, heartfelt love and true lust. But confessing a fantasy is a moment in time that must be savored: you must devour it like a cool, sweet fruit on a hot summer day.

The couples in this collection are so well crafted, they feel as real as someone you might know—but they are so very sexy, they’re more like the people you see one place or another that you want to know. I worked with talented and well-known writers to make sure of it. I wanted no dark scenarios, but real, vibrant and layered erotic stories featuring complex, surprising and believable characters —people whose confessions would feel like your own.

The stories are outrageously sexy—and they break the mold in literary excellence. Explicit sex is folded into sexual fantasies for couples in a way that puts you right there in the action and makes you want to come back for more. I was astounded at the emotional honesty, the talent, and the jaw-dropping sexual scenarios in theses stories.

I hope they inspire you to fess up.

The heroine in Heidi Champa’s “Smell As Sweet” turns classic office life into a riveting scene. An accidental discovery reveals a woman’s handsome coworker has a weakness for women’s panties, and she leverages his confession into an endless supply of expensive lingerie, ravishment atop desks and a woman who knows how to make a strong man confess. There are the best kind of “Bad Influences” in Devyn Christopher’s luxurious hot tub encounter, where the members of a loving couple confess to wanting a woman who can strap it on, and a man who loves to be sexually owned. Turnabout happens in Kayar Silkenvoice’s “Internet Café au Lay,” in which a rugged, ever-hard boyfriend gives in to his girl’s desire for semipublic sex, with an urgent encounter that left this editor breathless.

Sexual confession can be a wicked game. “Silver Screen,” by Portia Da Costa, is so delicately crafted, you’re put in the female protagonist’s unusual and uncomfortable situation—a woman in an X-rated theater—and we don’t find out until the twists and turns complete whose confession made the filthy anonymous hands jobs impossibly possible. A young woman from East London combines her sexual confession to a boxing instructor with the vulnerability of love’s first heated sexual consummation, but not before a bare-knuckle takedown that will leave scenes from “The Contender,” by Jacqueline Applebee, ringing in your head and other parts long after the story is finished.

When we think of confessions, we tend to think of places of worship; Sophie Mouette’s “Sacred Places” puts an incredulous Catholic girl into a Welsh monastery where her boyfriend wrenches profane confessions and orgasms out of her in equal measure. Unforgettable, “Counterpane,” by Alison Tyler, brings us into the world of a drop-dead sexy man who whisks his lover out of the office for her lunch break, where they greedily devour lust by the spoonful in her confession-made-realit y of double- time in a hotel room with two hot men.

An added feature of this discussion will be the chance, if we have time enough, to share some confessions about secret desires of your own, so be ready! Writing them out ahead of time to copy'n'paste might be a good idea. You can even e-mail them to me ahead of time, anonymously or not, so I can insert them at appropriate times. 100-300 words would be a good length. sacchigreen@gmail.com

This is an awesome introduction, and I *love* this theme! The thrill of sharing a new fantasy and seeing how my lover responds---or even better, hearing one from my lover, even if it completely surprises me!---is one of my favorite parts of sex. Or a relationship. Aw heck, a sexual relationship. It's amazing. What a perfect topic.

I picked the other book this month, but I can tell even before we start the meeting that I'm going to buy this one on my own...

If you'd like I can send you my copy. While I was in the middle of it, I lost the book for a couple of days, so I bought a Kindle copy. I knew I couldn't wait for it to be delivered, talk about instant gratification.

I'll get Ryuson's nifty fantasy in before she goes. It's certainly one that nobody thought of writing for this book, or any book I've seen, and originality is hot in its own way as far as I'm concerned.

I'm gonna be late to the meeting. I had written out a long explanation and then it just disappeared. I'm not writing it again. Suffice to say, my life sucks big time right now and I'll try and make it to the meeting later.
