It feels like a very long time ago that I first said “I’m going to write pieces of erotic fiction in different decades as my Smutathon task” I might even have said ‘a story for every decade’ even though this would definitely be a big ask.
I love historical erotic fiction, it’s one of my favourite things to write – mostly the big knickers, men in waistcoats and the idea of intense sexuality hidden beneath a thin veneer of ‘respectability’ and primness.
Now, with only two weeks to go (in fact, two weeks today we will be recovering with pastries, coffee and lounging around in our pyjamas because the tough bit will be OVER), and spending every weekend saying “Yep, this weekend I am going to plot out my stories” before resoundly failing to do so, I have finally pulled my finger out and committed my stories and their titles to my laptop.
Five word files are now contained in a Smutathon folder on my desktop. Five stories, set at twenty year intervals, featuring an array of queer and heterosexual characters. My hope is that each will be at least 1k long – 5000 words in 12 hours seems doable, even for me.
So, drumroll please! Here are my five stories, their titles and a little note about genre.
1920s – What the Butler Saw
Queer male masturbation, with a voyeurism/exhibitionism slant
1940s Ettie and Rose’s Dirty Weekend
Queer female romance, full of sweetness and discovery
1960s Flowers with de Sade
Het D/s in the Summer of Love
1980s Dancing With Myself Whilst Working as a Waitress in a Cocktail Bar
Het female masturbation for the working woman who wants to have it all
1999/2000 Taz and Noel want to make a millennium baby
Polya romance at the turn of the century
I hope at least one of these tickles your fancy. I am going to try my fucking hardest, I know that much!
See you all in August, and please DONATE!!
