A few years ago, I was lucky enough to hear a reading of a fantastic piece of erotic literature, Skinheads, by a friend of mine, Jacqueline Applebee. The story isn’t just wonderfully naughty, it’s also full of edge-of-your-seat apprehension on behalf of the protagonist as she explores a terrifying taboo. This week I was delighted to hear that this fantastic story will be appearing in next year’s Best Women’s Erotica (this annual volume, edited by Violet Blue, can always be relied upon for some fabulous bedtime reading: or listening, if you’ve got an erotica-reading buddy… or if Violet gets around to putting a reading into her podcast, Open Source Sex).

So there you go – a plug for Best Women’s Erotica, and in particular for next year’s edition in which you’ll find a great contribution by a particularly worthwhile writer.

    I just picked up your ‘oxford scouting party’ geocache travel bug. I plugged it in, and ended up here.

    Interesting blog, I’m definitely going to have to do some reading of it. On my drive I was listening to sex is fun – have you tried that podcast? It’s very poly/bi/everything friendly, but more educational than erotic, although the last few shows have been erotica. Give it a try.

    I’ve downloaded most of OSS, but never listened to much.

    Anyway, your bug should be in touching distance on Sunday around noon, but probably won’t be logged until later.

    As an avid reader of anything and everything I will give this a look when its published, which amazon informs me will be in January :)
