All The Things!

I spent this last weekend at CatalystCon Midwest, 2016. I connected with so many amazing people, many who I have followed online since I launched my blog in 2013. I learned a ton and the whole experience has made one spectacular memory. If you are reading this and were there, thank you for being a part of a great conference. This was definitely a big Sex-Positive Bucket List item crossed off the list.

A few things have happened this week that I totally need to brag about! So this week's post is an update of a bunch of things I've been up to. Please join me and my ego in the following:

First off, check out this amazing review of my book "Trophy Wife: Sexuality. Disability. Femininity." And take some time to look about Heather Brewer's site for more sex-positive info. 

Next up, the erotic anthology "From Top to Bottom: Lesbian Stories of Dominance and Submission" is now available! My story "Inside" is included in this book. The book is edited by Harper Bliss and already generating some great reviews! Check out this review on Love Bytes: Same Sex Book Reviews.

Finally, my guest post for Hot Octopuss is now up! In this post I talk about sex, disability, and stigma. I really like this post and I'm stoked to be included on such a sex-positive site. The Hot Octopuss blog is a great resource for many different topics, in particular sex and disability or other chronic conditions.

I have several other things that will be published/surfacing soon and I will update accordingly. I am barreling ahead with several new projects, most notably the manuscript I have in the works for my next non-fiction sexuality book which focuses on disability and open relationships. Until then, some wise words that are echoing in my mind: take care of yourselves and go in peace. XOXO -LV

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 ( 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…

Book Review: The Mistress Manual: The Good Girl's Guide to Female Dominance

I must confess that I become quite melancholy this time of year because I dreadfully miss going "back to school." But this time around, I almost felt like I was back in school because I had this book. Mistress Lorelei Powers has such a wonderfully authoritative and insightful voice with just enough snark, charm, and wit. I truly felt as though I were her pupil completing some very important homework as I studied this text.

Though I am involved in BDSM on some levels my interests rest mostly in fetishes rather than power exchange. So I admit that I consumed this book as a reader just as much as I did a sex blogger. And the experience was delightful.

This book is the perfect length and quite reader friendly. There is a lot of information packed into this manual, but it is enjoyable to peruse a second or third time and great to have as a reference.

The first part of the book addresses many concepts and issues in female dominance. What if you are reluctant to take the dominant…
