  1. Two Years of Sex, Y’all!

    January 10, 2014 by Heather Cole

    Another sex-filled year has passed and VAGINA ANTICS is two years old! The “terrible 2’s” only apply to babies, though. My second year of sex blogging was A-Fucking-Mazing! (Yes, that’s a word.) To celebrate this milestone, I’ve chosen three of my favorite posts and have a couple of giveaways for you. And you, and that person waaaaaay over there.

    Y’all may have noticed that we have added Writers of Erotica to my resumes. A year ago today, I was promoting Felt Tips because of the story I contributed for the anthology of erotica. I swore up and down that I didn’t write erotica, because I was writing about my real sex life. Then I realized that it was still erotica even though it was true, but I’ve written it MY way. I’ve shared the intimate details of my life with y’all and sometimes it’s super sexy. Others, not so much. Trust me when I say there’s nothing glamorous about cum in your eyes, delicate vag issues, or snipping your labia during an unpermitted trim.

    It’s always real; always me. And to thank you all for supporting my shenanigans for another year, beginning at midnight I will be giving away The Hunt  through Sunday. Because I love y’all, every fucking one of you.

    Sometimes It Hits You on the Head – During the spring of last year, my romantic life was a roller coaster. My poly circle was changing and I felt mainly responsible for that. I had met a Dominant man who wanted a slave, who wanted ME. This blog post was the first entry of the journey I began with my master and owner, LH. We had no idea exactly where we were going, but we were going there together. Reading this still brings up a lot of emotions for me even now.

    New Territory in My Submission – Reading this still gets me hot. I wonder if I can call LH and convince him to ditch work for the day…

    Pony Rides $10 aka Heather Rides a Sybian – The things I have done this past year blow my mind. Reading back through them… I have surpassed my fantasies. Public masturbation was one of them.

  3. A week of fantasy sex…

    January 28, 2013 by Heather Cole

    This week on Vagina Antics we’re all about the people, places and actions that dance through our heads as we masturbate. Or do you prefer to leave your mind blank and just FEEL? Whatever it is that gets you off, we want to hear about it. Tweet or comment here or on FB… tell us about your fantasy sex lives!

    Kicking off our fantasy sex week is FELT TIPS contributor and hot erotica author, Diana Cruze. I had to agree, werewolves = swoon in my book!

     

    When Juliana and I started brainstorming topic ideas, one thing we both agreed on was sexy fantasy creatures. Granted, my contribution to Felt Tips didn’t have any fantasy creatures, but I’m not one to give up the chance to think about sexy beasts. The kinky possibilities seem endless, and so far, I haven’t met a fantasy creature I didn’t like. Thinking about fantasy creatures as a sexual outlet allows for the exploration of taboos that normally might otherwise feel a little squicky. Werewolves seem to work for more people than bestiality… obsessive vampires sound somehow more appealing than stalking murderers.

    Some of my earliest and still most favorite sexual fantasies involve dragons. Particularly the shapeshifing variety… dragons who can deceitfully shift into the shape of man for their own nefarious purposes. There’s something beautiful and ethereal about imagining the maiden trapped by a vicious, eternal beast, especially one who can suddenly appear as a smooth and elegant human, still retaining the supernatural energy that make dragons so seductive. There’s an appeal to the mythos surrounding dragons. Their hypnotic powers, timeless wisdom, ferocity and unpredictable nature all spell sexy to me.

    I like to switch up the way I think about this, especially when I’m in the mood for some private playtime. Imagining an innocent maiden, helpless and terrified as the dragon’s snakelike eyes glimmer over her, lets me tease the limits of consent while in the safety of my own mind. A dragon who captures a sweet and trusting princess only to become enamored by her quickly becomes a seductive obsession fantasy, and maybe my dragon isn’t always in control of his beastly passions. Depending on how fully a dragon takes on the aspect of a human, the beastlike wings, claws and scaly flesh easily becomes a hot addition to my wilder fantasies.

    The beauty of fantasy creatures is how fluid the rules are. Things that might seem unacceptable to think about between two humans are suddenly no longer deal breakers. I’m free to explore the darkest, most forbidden facets of my fantasies.

     

    Diana Cruze is a writer, reader, and the stereotypical girl-next-door turned wife-and-mommy-next-door. Her favorite genres are varied, and include fantasy, romance, young adult, and historical. She loves pink jellybeans, dandelions, and all things tropical. She also loves reading and writing erotic romance, as well as young adult fiction, which she writes as Diana Paz. So far, she’s found that having two identities is pretty fun. Find her on Twitter @dianacruze or check out the upcoming release of her YA time-travel novel, Timespell, at dianapaz.com.

     


  4. Kick Ass – A guest post by Jillian Boyd

    January 11, 2013 by Heather Cole

    003 - kopie
    I like to think of myself as a pretty badass lady. I’m smart, a massive geek and I can probably trade witticisms with the best of them (except with Stephen Fry. I wouldn’t dare.)

    My brain is incredibly sexy. If you don’t believe me, I’m pretty sure that my other half will say something to that liking. He might also mention that he finds my body sexy.

    Which I’m not so sure about.

    My relationship with my body is a tumultuous one. I grew up as the token large broad in school, and therefore got to experience those childhood joys of being called fatty fat arse and getting shoved face down into a sandbox just because I had the audacity to look the way I looked.

    Kids can be dicks, that’s for sure.

    If you think I didn’t put any effort in to losing weight, guess again. I did. I’ve seen a ton of dietitians, psychiatrists and health professionals in my time. Mainly recommended to me by people who thought I’d gone a bit wrong with my life.

    I’ll never forget the P.E. classes, mostly spent sitting on the side, watching other people do a running test (a rite of passage for many a 13-year-old) and thinking that I was pretty damn lucky to have a teacher that understood I wasn’t capable of such feats of athleticism.

    I’ll also never forget the puns made on my name, the social assistant who called my mother a bad mother because she let her child go fat and just about every single painful minute of my childhood. Until the day I decided I’d had enough. And weirdly, that wasn’t the day I booked myself in for a gastric bypass.

    Nope.

    It was the first time I made love to my partner.

    We had been teasing and playing all night, until I found myself completely blocked by nerves. I couldn’t do it. What if he was repulsed? What if he suddenly went off me?

    I went to sleep topless, wearing a pair of shorts and knickers and a ton of regret on my shoulder. But by dawn’s early light, I had decided something.

    Fuck this. I’ll be naked.

    I’m the fucking Barenaked Lady!

    I took the remainder of my clothes off and slid next to him in bed. And I had never been prouder of myself, because it was the first time that I felt no shame about my body.  And it’s a feeling that I have managed to hold on to. It was something that needed to happen to help me find that part of myself. That part that is able to get naked and flaunt her body without thinking “Shite, is he looking at my wobbles?”

    I like my wobbles.

    In fact, I think they’re quite sexy…

    It took me a very long time to get confident in this body. But knowing what I know now is helping me  get one step closer to becoming a kick ass lady.

    And that’s the way I like it.

  6. Body Image – A guest post by AmyBeth Inverness

    January 7, 2013 by Heather Cole

    Our talented guest authors this week are writing about body image, that thing that so many of us are pondering this time of year along with out New Year’s Resolutions. In fact, Nikki and I were discussing weight and exercise just this very morning. (While I made toast and jam and had a hot chocolate.) 

    AmyBeth Inverness is a writer by birth, a redhead by choice, and an outcast of Colorado by temporary necessity. She’s a prolific creator of Science Fiction and Romance and a contributor to FELT TIPS. She’s also a fantastic interviewer. I felt thoroughly researched when she interviewed me back in July. I think she’s the bees’ knees. Enjoy!

     

    When I first met my husband, he was too shy to talk to me. Something about cleavage and a little black dress, supposedly. He let his married best friend do all the talking for him. There was something endearing about that shyness. Knowing that he liked my body was a big turn-on for me.

    Physical beauty is also a turn-on for me, as it is for most people. Women friends, especially romance writers, love to share pictures of handsome men. Celebrities, models, there is no shortage of gorgeousness out there. The comments that accompany these pictures are things like “OMG he is so handsome!” or “I’d like to tap that.”

    For me, these two comments are not at all synonymous. I can discuss at length the desirable physical attributes of any of these males (or females.) What you won’t hear me say is “I want to do him!” and it has absolutely nothing to do with prudish morals or my commitment to my husband.

    It has everything to do with body image.

    If I was single and miraculously in a situation where I was alone with one of these men, contrary to the popular opinion that “men will screw anything” it is far more likely that seeing me strip down to my skivvies and give him a “come hither” look would inspire him to flee.

    Nothing kills a libido faster than having your prospective sexual partner look at you and say “ew!”

    Outside of the unlikely prospect of getting naked with a celebrity, I generally have no problems showing my body. We take our kids to the water park and I wear a mom-suit with a little skirt that helps me maintain some dignity. I don’t smother myself with a caftan or bath robe. I even go in the water, and let my hubby take pictures of us all being cute to plaster all over facebook. In the privacy of my own home, I’ll often wander from the bedroom to the bathroom or the kids’ rooms in my birthday suit.

    Prego AB 
     
    When I was pregnant I was much less self-conscious about my body. I felt like I finally had a good reason for being big and beautiful.
     
     

    So, with this lack of modesty, why do I never picture my true body’s image when I fantasize? Whether it’s in writing a sex scene or just idly dreaming for my own personal benefit, I never think of myself as I really am when I think about sex. I think about a less rounded, more streamlined version of me. Not necessarily a supermodel, but definitely a woman who doesn’t have thighs that chaff as she walks or stretch-marks and heat rashes in places where the fat rolls the wrong way. If an image of my real self does happen to worm its way into my mind during a fantasy, I’m the first to say “ew!” to myself.

    Sex is not just for the pretty people. There are plenty of overweight, blemished people who fall madly in love and boink each other’s brains out everywhere. These people aren’t saying “ew!” They’re saying “I love you” and “I want you” and “want to try it in the kitchen?”

    I think fantasizing is just that… fantasy. We can idealize all we want in fiction. It doesn’t matter if he’d strain his back if he tried to lift her up and press her against the wall. It doesn’t matter if the reality is that sand can be rather abrasive when it gets stuck in an intimate place, sex on the beach is exciting. We can fantasize that our lover has the stamina of an Olympic athlete, or breasts the size of beach balls, or extra hands….

    OK that last one was a little weird, but I do write Science Fiction. Anything is possible.

    I think I’ll keep the idealized body in my fantasies. As long as I have a loving partner who still, after seventeen years of marriage, still loves to see me naked, I can accept and enjoy my real body when the fantasies end and the really good stuff begins.

     

     With short stories coming out in two different anthologies in 2012, AmyBeth can usually be found tapping away at her laptop, writing the next novel or procrastinating by posting a SciFi Question of the Day on Facebook. When she’s not writing, she’s kept very busy making aluminum foil hats and raising two energetic kids and many pets with her husband in their New England home.

    cover-small-webresThe Daemon Whisperer by Candice Bundy

    Meriwether Storm discovered the grisly remains of her parents on their living room floor when she was only fourteen, the result of a failed daemon summoning. Meri immediately swore vengeance on the daemon who’d killed her parents, but there was only one problem–she had no idea which one had committed the atrocity.

    Before their untimely deaths her parents had trained her intensively in the arts, and Meri used her skills to follow in their footsteps, ever seeking the daemon’s name. Now, despite her years of searching, she’s no closer to the truth and her time is running out.

    A captivating daemon mysteriously offers her a dangerous job in exchange for information about her parent’s murderer. Will she accept a deal from the daemon if it means finally learning the truth? Is it her instincts, her unusual attraction, or her desperation for answer, pushing her to trust the very creature she normally despises?

    When retribution is the only thing that drives you, how much are you willing to sacrifice before you lose yourself to the cause?

  8. Geek: The New Sexy

    December 17, 2012 by Heather Cole

    A guest post by R. Brennan (FELT TIPS – Routine Maintenance)

     

    First off, I want to thank Vagina Antics for having me. I’m so excited to be here.

    In speaking with my posting mate this week, the fantastically talented Candice Bundy about our stories for the Felt Tips anthology, we realized quickly we had a common thread in both of our stories and in our own professional lives. Not only do both of our steamy tales feature IT geeks at the office, we both work in the IT field in the real world. For all intents and purposes we’re both geeks.

    I happen to think we’re both damned sexy, and that, my friends, got me thinking. The geek of yesterday is gone. Replaced by a kinder, more appealing specimen of nerdom.

    We aren’t your Revenge of the Nerd style geeks anymore. We have much more swagger these days. Look around. Check out TV and movies. I bet I can find at least five geeky leading men who you would love to have a study session with, but I’ll save that for a follow up post. I never know these days what photos are allowable, and I’d hate to cause problems posting pics of the nerdy hotties I’m thinking of.

    Today I’ll focus instead on WHY geeks are a dating diamond in the rough.

    1. Geeks are smart.  – We all know the brain is the sexiest organ in the body. A geek has the mental power to be inventive, and has a more open-minded willingness to indulge your more imaginative fantasies. Who better than your geeky counterpart to come up with new an interesting ways to use that extra cat-5 cable in the storage room. Wrap a few of those puppies together, add a little bit of duck tape and voila — he’s made himself a fancy new flogger to make you squirm with. And wait till you see what he can do with a drawer full of ordinary office supplies…
    2. Geeks are better lovers – Some of you may be laughing at this tidbit of knowledge, but the simple truth is this — men, on the whole, are rather unsatisfying sexually. Experience isn’t all it’s cracked up to be when you consider most men are “practicing” not blowing their load within the first three minutes, and most aren’t all that concerned how you may be faring. But, a geek is much more likely to focus on pleasing you in bed and making sure you are having the time of your life in the hope they might get you back there again soon. I’ll take an attentive, geeky lover with a magical tongue and a genuine desire to satisfy over a studly, beefcake whose biggest concern is the size of his own pectoral muscles.
    3. Geeks study — a lot. Of everything. While your pumped up muscle head boyfriend is all about his subscriptions to Playboy and Sports Illustrated, your geeky companion is more likely to have read The Kama Sutra, The Story of O, or will be able to quote the works of William Shakespeare. They are much more likely to be able to hold up their end of any discussion, and let’s face it, stimulating conversation is sexy.
    4. Geeks have smaller egos  — The nerdy guys don’t get all that much attention from the fairer sex, so a geek is far less likely to treat you poorly or blow you off for a night out with the guys. They are more likely to have been taught how to behave by their mothers, and geeks work harder at being romantic than your average man. This leads right into:
    5. A geek won’t take you for granted – Geeks were never the cool kids. Coupled with the lack of regular attention from the opposite sex, geeks are far more likely to bend over backwards to please you. (You can’t hate that…) They are also far more likely to put in a little extra effort to get what they want. Where the average guy will do the bare minimum necessary to get you to take your pants off, a geek is used to working harder to get a woman’s attention.
    6. Geeks remember what matters – While your “normal” boyfriend will remember the exact details of the final game of last year’s World Series, your geek boyfriend will remember not only your birthday, but every anniversary, no matter how silly or insignificant  Additionally, they remember the perfect gifts to get you for such momentous occasions because they remember what you said you liked that time you walked past the pretty dress in the store window, or how you really wanted to listen to that new CD by Pink. They also remember the really important things — like where to touch you to make you squirm, what sorts of dirty little things you like whispered in your ear, and what spot on your inner thigh is the most sensitive.

    And, the best thing about these geeky brainiacs? The topper to all this amazing wonderfulness? Geeks come in both genders. So there is more than enough nerdy love for everyone.

  9. Unleash the FELT TIPS!

    December 12, 2012 by Heather Cole

    FTIT’S HERE!

    I’m so excited that I’m doing a happy dance.

    Even if you’re not typically a fan of erotica, you’re bound to find something that tickles your fancy in this collection. Our fearless editor, Tiffany Reisz, said it best:

    “Felt Tips began as a sarcastic tweet on Twitter.

    I’m going to write an office-supply-related erotica novel and call it FELT TIPS. Get it?

    Everyone got it. Not only did they get it, they loved it. One tweet turned into a dozen
    replies begging me to do just that. Being out of my damn mind, I thought, “Why not?” Why not put together an anthology of office-supply-related erotica? No one fetishizes office supplies more than professional writers. I put out a call for submissions and before I knew it I had dozens of office-supply-related erotica stories in my inbox from bestselling authors and never-before published aspiring writers. Apparently Felt Tips had hit a nerve.

    Please enjoy this wonderfully oddball collection of office-supply-related erotica from a wonderfully oddball crew of forty-four writers. Every penny of the profits of this book will be donated to an organization that helps struggling schools supply their classrooms. Thank you. Never forget the penis mightier.”

    My contribution to the anthology is called The Saint of Office Hell. The collection is chock full of sexy goodness so treat yourself and know that you’re donating to a great cause.

  10. Spooky Sexy

    November 26, 2012 by Heather Cole

    The first thing I ever wrote was a novel with vampires and werewolves before such things were super cool and then super uncool. I can see the manuscript sitting in its box from here, and some day I will pull it out and see if I can salvage a story from it. Some parts of it are very good. Other parts… not so much.

    While I was trying to edit that novel, I fell in with a group of horror writers. My stories have always run to the dark side of human nature, but I prefer spooky to slasher. I’m very bad at writing blood and gore. I prefer to muck around with the mental twists and turns of reality vs fantasy/sane vs insane, because what’s more scary than the darkness that dwells in our hearts? And yes, sweeties, we all have darkness. I like playing with scary things, and even though Vagina Antics eats up much of my writing time, I’m always working on something for the Dark Side.

    When I wrote HIS PET, it was the kind of story where I fell in love with every word. A horror writing friend ran it in it’s original version when I was just getting my feet wet in the writing world. A long time after that when Jason Darrick invited me to guest post something kinky horror-ish, I thought this super short story might do the trick.  I knew it needed a facelift, so I presented it to my critique group where they gutted it (in a good way). At one point a writing comrade looked at me and said, “I wrote a story too about my ex-husband after our divorce. It was very therapeutic.” My mouth dropped open, and I just stared at her. “But this story is kinky and my ex is about as straight as… OH.” She was absolutely right even though I didn’t make the connection when I was writing it.

    Many thanks to Jason Darrick, horror writer and contributor to FELT TIPS, for hosting me. This has been an absolute blast.
