The Mermaid Voyage: Spiritual-Erotic Love Days

shutterstock_108989024“I must be a mermaid, Rango. I have no fear of depths and a great fear of shallow living.” –Anais Nin, Mermaid Voyage hero.

Valentine’s Day can be a tough time for those who aren’t involved in romantic relationships. But it needn’t be, if we celebrate our selves. That’s why we’re offering a FREE Mermaid Voyage celebration from February 14th – February 16th, 2014, in which women — and those who identify as women — will fully and deeply enjoy an erotic romance with ourselves. The free Mermaid Voyage Love Days are all about having a romantic, erotic affair with ourselves — one that vibrates with spiritual-sexual energy and doesn’t have to involve romantic partners. (And if you’re interested in why it’s called the Mermaid Voyage, take a look here.)

To give a taster, here is the audio visualization from Day One of the Love Days:

The free Love Days will include:

  • Free daily erotic-spiritual audio visualizations, such as the one you find above;
  • Free video discussions of how to be our own best lovers;
  • Free daily affirmations and spiritual messages;
  • Free solo lovemaking tips;
  • Free Mermaid oracle readings for the whole group.

A fuller 10-day Mermaid Voyage will be launching in March for those who want to go deeper into their erotic romance with themselves, guided by the heart and soul of our Mermaid Voyage community. These 10-Day Voyagers will have full access to the Love Days materials, along with similar and more immersive offerings over the ten days. Prices for the full Voyage will be announced after the Love Days take place. Keep an eye on this blog, Follow the Signs Like Alice, and also the Mermaid Voyage pages, as the Love Days grow closer.

Until then, we’ll be posting updates, mermaid-themed posts, and freebies. Stay tuned. And to join our Mermaid Voyage mailing list you can send a blank email with Mermaid List in the subject line, to: editors (at) godeeperpress.com

Namaste.

5 Ways to Harness the Erotic You in 2014!

shutterstock_106389134Happy New Year! We’ve been on a prolonged silence because we’ve been over in the UK with less internet than you’d imagine. But we’re back to bring you five ways of harnessing the erotic you, this year. Enjoy!

1. Remember that your erotic self lies inside of you. You can be richly erotic whether you are in a relationship, enjoying different partners, or being the solo sexual you. An affirmation to help? I am pure erotic inspiration

2. Enjoy erotica and porn without being restricted. What turns you on? What do you enjoy reading or watching? Give yourself permission to enjoy being aroused, and check out some new sources of erotic enjoyment. We recommend Blue Artichoke Films, Tristan Taormino‘s porn flicks, Kink.com, and the gorgeously queer Crashpad. (Plus you can check out our free Pornocore stories, or buy our books, if they’re for you!)

3. Invest in a new sex toy. Our current loves include the WeVibe, the Magic Wand, and, if you fancy donning a realistic cock this year, check out the Vixskin range.

4. Tell yourself that when you have sex with yourself or other partners, and you really enjoy the experience, you create a more loving you. Check out this great research on oxytocin if you need convincing (thanks to Plos One). And you can also enjoy the Mermaid Voyage this year, if you want to take part in a solo journey of pure, unabashed, erotic self-love.

5.  Look at your genitals in a small hand-mirror and tell them that they are beautiful. It is understandable if you don’t believe this statement as yet — society has shamed our beautiful sexualities for far too long. But tell your genitals anyway. Tell them they’re gorgeous. Tell them you’re grateful that they are a part of you. Because, if you do nothing else this year, loving yourself will take you a very long way.

If you’re a woman or woman-identified person who is interested in a solo journey into erotic self love, check out the Mermaid Voyage, which will be sailing this spring.

Erotic Mermaids! Win the Mermaid Voyage!

MermaidVoyageLogoSome say that a mermaid is half-fish, half-woman. But I take a different point of view. After all, there are so many people who feel like they are defined as “half and half” when really they are whole—complete and unique—just as they are.  Every time we look at ourselves as “half one thing, half another,” we’re failing to see the whole beauty of ourselves. And part of The Mermaid Voyage: A Two-Week Journey of Erotic Self-Discovery is accepting ourselves, right here and now, as gorgeous and whole.

(Also, ya know, I haven’t heard anyone define angels as half-person, half-bird!)

I sometimes wonder whether the “half-and-half” definition of mermaids has something to do with the stereotypes we buy into. At Go Deeper, for example, when we were designing the Mermaid Voyage, it was hard to find images of mermaids who weren’t skinny, with flat tummies, tiny waists, and (I’m guessing) 34C-sized breasts. And seeing how the Voyage is about romancing your erotic self in terms of body, mind, and soul, how on earth could we justify images of mermaids that always have the same body shape?

Well, we’ve done our best with the images we can afford to buy for the Voyage, but of course, as a small press, we have our limits. That said, we want to add some images and/or descriptions of mermaids with different body shapes to the Mermaid Voyage materials. So! Here’s a chance for you to win the Mermaid Voyage for free.  (Yes, you heard that correctly! A two-week self-love course, with daily audio visualizations and a wealth of other goodies, for zero dollars!) We’re asking you for portrayals of mermaids that crack open the general stereotype. You can describe the mermaid(s) in words or visually, and we’ll publish the winning portrayal on our blog and website. Here are the rules:

  • Submissions must be your own original work.
  • You need to be prepared to share the image on our blog in exchange for a free Mermaid Voyage, launching July 1st.
  • You must email your mermaid portrayal to GDP by June 20th (email address: submissions (at) godeeperpress.com). Please put “Mermaid Contest” in the subject line. Otherwise, we might miss it!
  • The mermaid portrayal doesn’t have to be erotic, but sensual, sexy elements are always warmly welcomed.

Good luck!  And a big “Yay!” to the rich variety of body types that we so value at GDP!

Yay for the Oracle of Mermaids - the mermaid on the cover may be slim, but she has a tummy!

Yay for the Oracle of Mermaids, which I’ll be using with Mermaid Voyagers – the mermaid on the cover may be slim, but she has a tummy!

In Which Lana Fox Rambles About Butt Plugs and Submitting

The "Corkscrew" from Fucking Sculptures (Gorgeous, ain't it?)

The “Corkscrew” from Fucking Sculptures (Gorgeous, ain’t it?)

Today, I had a brief chat with Alison Tyler, author of the smart and steamy Those Girls.  We were on Twitter at the time, and she sent me a tweet saying that she was going to “shamelessly plug” her new call for submissions.  The phrase made me smile, because whether we’re promoting books or selecting anal sex toys, we’re all about shameless plugging here at Go Deeper Press.

This pun got me thinking about sex toys.  See, yours truly is in the throes of choosing vibrators for the Mermaid Voyage gift box, and I want these sex toys to look inviting when they’re snuggled up with the body lotion, natural shells and other erotic goodies.  Aesthetically, I’m thinking more “silver and glistening” than “hot pink with polka dots.”  (There’s a place for hot pink with polka dots of course, but I digress.)

So that got me thinking about Fucking Sculptures — those delectable sex toy designers with (surely) the best possible name.  I mean, there are times when I want my vibrator to be the hot pink of a paddle-blush and there are times when I prefer an “artsier” look — more Salvador Dali, if you get my drift.  Well, Fucking Sculptures have the latter in spades.  Go check ’em out.  They’re fabulous.

And while we’re at it, did you know that our Angela Tavares, queer writer extraordinaire, is on the lookout for sporty queers?  Correction: she’s on the lookout for stories of sporty queers.  Take a look at her submissions guidelines.  And being someone who has submitted — in full furry handcuffs — to Angela Tavares myself, I can say that you won’t be disappointed.

Seriously, she rocks.  Take a look at what is going to be an amazing, hot collection.

Sex with a Mermaid

The Mermaid Voyage: A Two-Week Journey of Erotic Self-Discovery.

The Mermaid Voyage: A Two-Week Journey of Erotic Self-Discovery.

So many of us, no matter how sex-positive, still carry burdens of shame when it comes to erotic self-love.  The notion of having “a romance with yourself” is quite widely accepted, but the notion of having an “erotic romance with yourself” — one that focuses on transformative, solo lovemaking along with self-love — is rarely voiced.  Not only do we need healing in this area and a way to shed the shame that others have handed us, but we also need to take care of our sexual selves and acknowledge that, regardless of whether we are in partnered relationships, we are our own deep source of erotic love and imagination — and no matter what comes, we can always have this.

That’s why we’ve created an online course called the Mermaid Voyage: A Two-Week Journey of Erotic Self-Discovery — a fresh offering from Go Deeper Healing.  And because this is the first time we’ve run the course, we’ll be giving it to you, with or without the gift box, at a very special price, in the hope that you will give us your feedback.  To find out more, including how to sign up for Mermaid Voyage updates, take a look here.

Quite apart from that, we’re also keen to share quotes from Lana’s erotic novel from Harper Collins’ Mischief.  Do take a peek below to get a little taster of Confessions of a Kinky Divorcee.  And if you do read it, we’d love to hear what you think.

May your day be a beauty, dear readers!
