Brazen!

GDP Square1Have you seen the fabulous tumblr entitled Critiquing Your Dick Pics with Love? It’s NSFW and totally enjoyable. Plus it’s great anti-shame activism, in our opinion. Take a look!

And thanks so much to all of you for downloading Shameless Behavior: Brazen Stories of Overcoming Shame for free. For instance, we’re very grateful to Jade Waters for leaving us a wonderful 5-star review. Among other things, she says, “I have no shame in saying I loved this collection!” In fact, Jade Waters is also a wonderfully talented erotic author, so go and take a look at her website too!

To read a free erotic story from the Shameless Behavior collection, take a look at Compassion’s Seed – the story of a priest who is in desperate need of sexual transformation…

Shameless Behavior: Erotica Review from Mia Hopkins

Y0Z_2e4m33EA1AikWpFA3-bZSIG04gM4mLkjj_vZJYkWe woke up to a delightful tweet this morning from Go Deeper author Mia Hopkins of Dirty Little Numbers fame, who has reviewed our erotic anthology, Shameless Behavior: Brazen Stories of Overcoming Shame. Her fabulous review opens like this:

“Sometimes kink feels like sex distilled, the depth of sexuality packed into a word, a gesture, a mood.”

With this line, contributing author Laurel Isaac distills the flavor of Shameless Behavior, a fantastic collection of short stories edited by Lana Fox and published by Go Deeper Press.    

Indeed, kink abounds.  In “Cutter” by Beth Wyatt, a Tom Hardy-esque MMA fighter with a penchant for domination meets a meek shopgirl who regularly retreats into the restroom with a packet of razors. “Stay” by Rion Woolf is a hot trans story about giving and receiving, big secrets and big surprises.  Isaac’s “Holding” is a tribute to watersports that ends in a fun crescendo… [read the full review.]

Incidentally, Mia also has a story coming out in Delilah Devlin’s Cowboy Heat (Cleis Press). Looks like a really fun anthology! Watch that space…

Sophie Bulldog’s Bitchin’ Review of Zombie Erotoclypse by Tamsin Flowers

Sophie Bulldog, bitch and erotica reviewer.

Sophie Bulldog, bitch and erotica reviewer.

Trot on over to BookBoner for Sophie Bulldog’s first bitchin’ erotic review. I quote:

“Anyhump, I’ve been enjoying Zombie Erotoclypse by Tamsin Flowers. It’s erotica. Not dog erotica, but  it does contain zombies in chains–pretty great to see humans being tied up for a change instead of humble bulldogs. (If only I had opposable thumbs.) But overall…” [Read more here.]

And since we’re on the talented Tamsin, her gorgeous Lucky Mascot appears in Huddle: Sex with Sporty Queers (vol. 1, Boys’ Varsity) which is also available for NOOK or at a special price at Go Deeper Press.

What’s more, have you heard of the amazing Erotica for All? You can find free reads there (here’s an erotic excerpt from Con), info about authors, great posts around erotica, and much much more. Go take a look!

Margaret Thatcher: The Ultimate Domme

Margaret Thatcher, in her pearls. Photo credit below post.

First of all, erotic author Harper Bliss asked me some exciting questions this week.  To view the interview, which includes who I’d like to screw, why I dig Spike, and how I feel about coming out, visit her fabulous blog.  This is the first of Harper’s interviews with authors whose books she rates highly.  In fact, I’m honored that Harper says:

“I totally recommend every book featured on here.  Confessions of a Kinky Divorcee is a great start because it’s light, funny, utterly delicious and extremely well-written (and very, very hot!) You can get it for $1.99 (!) on Amazon US and UK and, frankly, it was the best $1.99 I spent in a very long time.”

Dear Harper, thank you.  Please know that *Lana Fox glows with pride.*

Also, on a very different note, you might be aware that Britain’s first female prime minister, Margaret Thatcher, died this week.  (Read about it at Salon.)  She was a domme, in her way.  And seeing as I’m a Brit who loves a bit of BDSM and now lives in Boston, US, how could I not comment?  As it happens, when I was a kid, I spent many unhappy evenings in pitch darkness because of Thatcher.  Why?  Because everyone who wasn’t dripping in diamonds was being treated so badly that they were on strike.  What’s more, Thatcher pretty much ignored them.

That said, I do often think of Margaret Thatcher as a tragic Shakespearian BDSM anti-hero, strutting around in her pearls and insisting that she could darn well run the nation as a woman, thank you very much.  And that was very important for us, as Brits.  To watch a woman in a world of men running the country as she saw fit.

Actually, in the film starring Meryl Streep (boy, that woman can act!), there is a wonderful moment where Thatcher, before she is voted in, is told by her advisors that she shouldn’t wear pearls.  They’re too femme, too delicate, her advisors say.  But Thatcher tells them, point blank, that pearls are exactly the tone that the Conservative Party wishes to strike.

So she wore those pearls and she ruled in those pearls.

And I sat in candlelight and drew bad pictures in crayon.

Things People Say About Sex on Buses

First of all, a quick shout-out to a wonderful review of Alison Tyler’s Those Girls!  Many thanks to A Book Hunter’s Journal for taking the time to say so many lovely things about Alison’s book.  A fun excerpt:

“My first mistake was downloading the book at work. It’d been so long since my last Alison Tyler naughty read that I forgot how steamy her prose is. So I hunkered down at the puppet stage with Judy (a puppet), a chicken (also a puppet), and my coworker (not a puppet). Ms. Tyler’s imagery blows out of the page (e-page?), filling her readers’ heads with all sorts of decadent scenes.”

Secondly, can you imagine anyone saying that banning a racist advert from a London bus would be a “threat to democracy”?  Well, some people make this crazy argument about homophobic adverts.  Seriously.  Gay Star News tells all.  Do take a look.  

Also, did you know that if you are kind enough to sign up for our newsletter, we’ll give you a taboo, erotic Go Deeper Short by yours truly?  The mini e-book is called Sol and it breaks rules…as we tend to do at GDP.  😉

Thank you, dear sex-positive readers.  Have a lovely day!

Thanks for visiting the Go Deeper Press blog!  If you’d like to browse our books, we’re on Amazon and Barnes & Noble, and our own Go Deeper online store.  We heart your interest, dear readers.

Femme Fat, Femme Fatale!

Sweet pic taken from TheFrisky.com

I recently discovered Bevin Branlandingham (aka the Queer Fat Femme) via a post she published at the Frisky, entitled, “7 Ways to Be a Good Ally to Your Fat Lover” — a wonderful read.  An excerpt:

‘I learned this body affirming practice where anytime you say something critical about a body part you immediately respond with an apology and a gratitude: “I’m sorry, tummy,  for talking shit about you. I am so grateful to you for being so soft and comfortable.” Something like that.

I was thinking that if I was having a hard time with a part of my body it would be awesome for my partner to give it some extra TLC. Kisses, sweet talk, a massage, etc…’

The rest of the post is just as empowering and loving.  I recommend you take a look.

Also!  The folks at DieForHer.com (specifically ARH) have written a wonderful review of Femme Fatale: Erotic Tales of Dangerous Women, entitled, “Femme Fatale: Bedside Reading fot the Disposable Male.”  Thank you kindly, DieForHer.  We love how the review gives some favorite quotes from the collection and also notes that Femme Fatale isn’t only for women and female-identified readers — sex-positive men can enjoy it too.  What’s more, if you’re into femme fatale fetishes, do check out the (not always NSFW) DieForHer site.

And by the way, Femme Fatale: Erotic Tales of Dangerous Women edited by me, Lana Fox, is available from Amazon or Barnes&Noble or our hot online store.

Soft Porn and Psychic Phenomena (No, Really)

Anyone who says that porn-viewing has nothing to do with synchronicity, think again.  Angela and I were freshly connected to Emmanuelle, the 1970’s soft porn phenomenon, because of an amazing psychic hit.  Take a look at my recent post at the Good Vibrations Blog, The Buzz, to find out more.

Sylvia Kristel, may you rest in peace and always be remembered.

Fifty Shades, the Magazine, Proclaims an Erotic Movement

I think we’re all aware of the influence that the Fifty Shades of Grey trilogy has had on most cultures, but if you were doubting it, consider, if you will, a mental revision: Fifty Shades of American Women magazine is out now. For those “Who Love the Book and Live the Life,” Fifty Shades comprises the true recipe for magazine success: part tabloid (with predictions for the actors that will play the novel’s characters in the eventual film), part Cosmopolitan (with tips on how to write a flirty email, a spread featuring 20 of the best-loved sex toys, and a feature from a woman who’s been both a domme and a sub, but prefers now to just “cuddle and makeout”), and part Shape (with tips on how to get Ana’s butt and how to “eat like a sex goddess”).

The magazine even takes a crack at defining why the series is so popular. Ariel Knoebel writes in “American Revolution” that Fifty Shades of Grey, in all its popularity, has given women permission to openly talk about sex, with friends, family, and partners. And isn’t it about time? Sex toy shops, according to the article, have claimed ridiculously large increases in sales, courtesy of E.L. James’ novels. Plus, everyone wants to know what’s next—if you enjoy Fifty Shades of Grey and don’t want the fantasies to stop, where do you go?

Well, you can start by reviewing Rachel Kramer Bussel’s list, which the magazine includes (thumbs up to Alison Tyler’s Cuffing Kate, which our own Lana Fox gave the stamp of approval to in Glo magazine), or you can keep doing what you’re doing—keeping the pulse on Go Deeper Press. We’re getting ready to meet all demands, and we promise you a wild and steamy ride.
