Sharing My Sexual Fantasies


Well, hopefully the title of this post got your attention. Not that I mean for it to be particularly shocking. The reason I am writing this post is to lament that sharing sexual fantasies should be considered taboo. I’m currently reading a psychology book that tackles the topic of sexual fantasy and I was sad to read that a high number of people never share any of their sexual fantasies with anyone, including their sexual partners or people they have been in relationships with for decades.

Not that this is an entirely terrible thing. Some fantasies would certainly lose their luster if we ever brought them out into the light of day. But if people aren’t sharing their fantasies because they are ashamed, scared of judgment, or believe they are alone in the subject of their fantasies, well, that is terrible indeed.

So in an effort to contribute to the emerging dialogue of sexual fantasies, here is a roundup of mine. I will likely write on each fantasy topic in more detail in future posts, but for now, here’s a peek into my naughty confessional brain box.

1. Exhibitionism

My earliest fantasies involved being naked in public places, or just being naked around other people in general. I fantasized about Roman baths and exotic tribes who performed important rituals in the nude. I modernized these fantasies by pretending I was being photographed naked or was the model for a sculptor or painter. (Extra secret: posing as a nude model: totally on my bucket list.)

2. Spanking

A close second to my earliest fantasies is spanking scenes. Pretty much any scenario you could imagine, if it involved spanking, my mind has conjured it up. This fantasy topic caused me a lot shame. I thought I was the weirdest person in the history of ever for finding such a base, humiliating, and even childish fantasy so incredibly hot. But as an adult I found out I wasn’t alone. Like at all. A lot of people like spanking. And being spanked. And writing about it. At any rate it’s safe to say this fantasy is still alive and well for me, and a couple BDSM play partners are quite grateful. Also, read this book!

3. Man Sex

The first porn I watched and enjoyed was M/M gay porn. The first erotica I read and really enjoyed was M/M fluffy romances. Then came slash fan fiction. During high school and early college this was the central genre of erotica I consumed. Since becoming more active in BDSM I have started reading M/F and F/F pairings (as well as several combinations of poly pairings) in erotica more than M/M pairings (though I have a few M/M books on my wish list). However, when I drum up fantasy storylines in my head, the characters having the central relationships are still M/M. What can I say? I love imagining hot man sex.

4. Male Pregnancy

Yeah, you probably weren’t expecting that (if you were, high five, you’re awesome). I discovered this fantasy when I started reading slash fan fiction and clicked on the magical “mpreg” tag. I could write a whole post about this. (Which I did, click here.) For now we can just say for a myriad of reasons, I rather enjoy reading erotica that centers on men being pregnant, because the story is set in the future or on another planet. Or they’re shape shifters. Or just because. You know. It is a relatively rare genre, but I do have a few fiction/erotica books involving male pregnancy I’m planning to read in the future and review. I am also interested in furthering my research on this topic as well as other fetishes that involve pregnancy.


5. Panties

This probably goes along with the exhibitionism/spanking fantasies, but I do believe I fetishize panties. At least they make an appearance in most of my fantasies. I find erotic stories involving many layers extra enticing. I also enjoy stories of men who have panty fetishes. It is a topic I have delved into in my own erotica writing. (Plus panties are hot. Who, really, doesn’t like panties? Let’s have a panty party. You’re all invited!)

6. Servitude

Finally, servitude and, to a certain extent submission. Though I can’t pin point a particular time, there has always been a power dynamic in most of my fantasies where one character takes a servitude or submissive role. I enjoy Hurt/comfort scenarios and have often imagined being on top as much as on the bottom. However, this is the most vague of my fantasies. As I’ve said here on my blog before I am not drawn to BDSM for the Power Exchange and don’t identify as Dom or sub. I prefer using the terms “top” and “bottom” when I do a scene. So perhaps power dynamics are just a given in ANY sexual relationship, and I just have fun playing with it in my head. Like the sprinkles on top of the spanking man sex sundae of panty love.

Well, there you have it, the collage that composes my sexual fantasy canvas. It does feel a bit odd proclaiming these fantasies to the internet. But I don’t believe fantasies are something to be ashamed of. And the truth is, I didn’t really start enjoying my fantasies to the fullest until I was honest about them and confronted them head on. That meant sharing with my husband, reflecting on my own psyche and understanding that, seriously, I am not the only person who has fantasized about any of these things.

So, are any of the above your favorite? Let me know in the comments. ‘Til next time. Don’t quit your daydream ;)

  1. I've been fascinated by tattooed women for quite a while, often in conjunction with an animalesque appearance. I imagine a woman who'd pass for usual in the street, but with tattoos that cover much of the rest of her body. Maybe she'd have leopard spots or feathers all over her torso, with these running most of the way up her arms and legs. Of course, if the fur - or feathers or scales - were real instead of just being tattoos, that would be even better. I really must write a fantasy piece about this!

Excerpts from "Cast From the Earth" a polyamorous romance

I had so much fun sharing inspiration photos and excerpts from my novel Booked that I wanted to do one for Cast From the Earth, my polyamorous romance with zombies set in the 1890's. This book features a F/F and M/M/F pairing and lots of fighting... for love ;) Check out some snippets below!

Dust billowed up as the wagon ambled down a worn dirt road reserved for indigents and invalids. Curled in the back of the wagon clutching her satchel, Cordelia was certain she was neither. She had been offering a perfectly legitimate trade on that street corner back in town. Yet someone still turned her in for begging in public.

Cordelia found herself with no means to pay for a room at the boardinghouse and not a single establishment in White Spring would let her wash dishes or sweep floors for even one day.

Without any further discussion, Cordelia was shoved into the back of a wagon to be hauled off to the Clay County poor farm.

There had been a brief exchange in which the man entrusted with…

Ways Porn Has Helped My Life

Earlier this week @KelseyObsession on Twittier (SexuallyAwkward.com) posted a poll asking if porn has helped people’s lives, hurt people’s lives, or been a neutral force. I answered that porn has helped my life... because it has!
I see the sentence “porn ruined my life” so often but I can honestly say that in many ways porn saved my life. (It’s a bit too click baity even for me to use as a headline, but it doesn’t make it any less true). On top of that, there has been another anti-porn wave on social media lately, so I thought I would go ahead and dedicate a post to the ways porn has helped my life.
First things first. When I write about porn, I usually get a lot of the same questions so I’ll just preface by answering those questions now: 1. No, I don’t work in the adult industry. Aside from one erotica story I wrote being published in an alternative porn magazine and a few erotic photoshoots that have never been published except as cropped header images for my blog posts, I’ve never be…

Happy Masturbation Month 2018!

It's MASTURBATION MONTH, lovely readers. I'm so very excited because masturbation is one of my most cherished sexual outlets. Unfortunately, I didn't always have such a good relationship with masturbation. I saw it as something shameful, as something "less" than other sexual outlets, and the subjects of my sexual fantasies often left me confused or once again, ashamed.

Examining sexual fantasy, learning about my body, and understanding more about how erotic media is produced were all processes I had to work through to have a better sex life and to enjoy all my sexual outlets. Which is why I still work to promote great non-fiction sexuality books and sex-ed resources as much as I can.

But for today, I want to offer some further reading for masturbation specifically.

As a person who can think myself off, I rely on sexual fantasy and erotic media like erotica and porn to masturbate and own relatively few sex toys. But that's all right! Part of my message about …
