Naked Reader Book Club Discussion: IN SLEEPING BEAUTY'S BED and FAIRY TALE LUST (October 12, 7-11 PM EST)

Kristina Wright Kristina Wright
Welcome to the Naked Reader Book Club! Tonight we're talking about fairy tales with an erotic twist! Whether it's retellings of familiar or obscure classics or original stories that pay homage to the fairy tale genre, fairy tales are hot, hot, hot! So hot, in fact, that we have two books to discuss tonight! In Sleeping Beauty's Bed: Erotic Fairy Tales by Mitzi Szereto and Fairy Tale Lust: Erotic Fantasies for Women edited by Kristina Wright (that's me!) are sure to enchant and seduce you!


In Sleeping Beauty's Bed

Mitzi Szereto

Fairy tales are rich sources of sexual fantasy—sexy slippers, mattresses piled high, dominatrix witches, lustful princes... Seasoned erotica author Mitzi Szereto restores the sex in the 15 tales in this provocative book—and adds a few surprises of her own. Here the bawdy humor of French fable meets the sublime eroticism of ancient Chinese myth as a far-from-virginal damsel weds a Prince Charming with a shoe fetish. Little Red Riding Hood discovers Grandma's bed is open to any stray wolf. And a Japanese monk stumbles onto an S/M scene behind a forbidden door.

Fairy Tale Lust: Erotic Fantasies for Women

Kristina Wright

Something Wicked and Wanton This Way Comes

Award-winning novelist and erotica writer Kristina Wright goes over the river and through the woods to find the sexiest fairy tales ever written. Playfully seductive, supernaturally sensual, and darkly erotic, Fairy Tale Lust showcases clever twists to classic tales and introduces new stories inspired by the ever-popular genre. Here, a walk in the forest is likely to lead to an erotic encounter with a mysterious stranger or the silver light of a full moon might illuminate an orgy of sensual delights. Top erotica contributors deliver sizzling work, including Janine Ashbless, Delilah Devlin, Shanna Germain and Saskia Walker.

Also includes stories by Andrea Dale, Craig Sorensen, Justine Elyot, Louisa Harte, Alegra Verde, Allison Wonderland, Kristina Wright, Jeremey Edwards, Aurelia T. Evans, Carol Hassler, Alana Nöel Voth, Michelle Augello-Page, Charlotte Stein, and A.D.R. Forte.

Oh, fairy tales! What is it about these stories that we find so enticing? What makes eroticizing fairy tales so appealing? Is it the subversiveness of taking a childhood tale and rewriting it for adults? Is it the universality of a fairy tale that makes it feel so familiar, so personal, even if we've never read it before? Is it the fact that retold fairy tales often put the woman in control (or on top, as the case may be)? Hopefully we'll explore all of these questions and ask a few new ones in tonight's discussion!

If you've read one or both of the books:

--What story or stories did you find most appealing? Was it a fairy tale you were familiar with or something totally new?
--Did the revamped versions of the classic tales live up to your expectations?
--What particular elements of each book did you enjoy? Fairy Tale Lust incorporates several original fairy tales, while In Sleeping Beauty's Bed includes histories of the original fairy tales. Did these unique angles appeal to you?


Whether you've read the books or not, everyone is invited to consider these questions:

--What fairy tale would you most like to see retold as an erotic story?
--Have you ever written (or fantasized) an erotic fairy tale? Which one?


As always, everyone is welcome in the Naked Reader Book Club discussion! So let down your hair, mount your fiery steed and settle in for a magical ride!

I read and reviewed In Sleeping Beauty's Bed but since Laurel is still out, it hasn't been published yet. And I'm about 1/2 way through Fairy Tale Lust. I'm up to "Her Hair is a Net, Woven". I like them both but Fairy Tale Lust is more my style than In Sleepy Beauty's Bed.

I liked a lot of them, but I think Gingerbread Man is quite possibly my favorite. It's not so heavy on the sex, but I felt like I could relate so much to the story, sort of, lol.

I love that one. It was kind of mystically romantic. I did find it odd though, on a logical basis, that a father would be so involved or even lax about a daughter's quest for an orgasm LOL

That was one of the reasons that it stuck out to me so much, lol. I mean, I guess whatever it takes to make sure your kid is happy? But still, lol
