The more people that know the merrier I say, it helps spread the word and brings traffic to my profile here and my writing elsewhere and my website. Funny experience at Xmas, letting my 63 year old mother read one of my posts.
I was all like 'I'm cool and open minded perhaps we'll discuss it after' she didn't say ANYTHING, not. one. thing. UM .

No-one I know (as far as I know) is aware that I write stories here and get up to all the paraphernalia that comes with visiting a place like this: the saucy chats, the sexy chats, the singularly unique intimacy, the masturbation, the cams, the emails, the pics... It's something I do for me. Just me. The rest of my life is for the people around me, but I need this quiet secluded spot to express that other side of me. I'm surprised at how many people here are in the same boat - having a 'secret affair' with Lush. Beware: it is addictive and possibly destructive. Accept that as gospel. Abandon all hope, ye who enter here.


Wow, that's a lot of devotion, A. I am just purely not good enough at hiding my activities. I stand in awe...well, hell, I mean of more than your writing!

Only a close friend knows. My family doesn't know and I'd like to keep it that way. It's a part of my life (like someone above me mentioned) that I'd like to have for me and just me.

It's a choice only you can make. Tell others why, unless you feel compelled to. Could be difficult!

Two people, so far, my best friend and my writing buddy who thinks I should submit to playboy or penthouse or something.

Boyfriend doesn't know yet... probably only a matter of time. I suck at keeping secrets. I'm hoping the reaction I get is "all these guys lusting over my girlfriend and she's all mine, sweet!" rather than, "stop flirting with other guys you unfaithful harlot."

Time will tell :P

My boyfriends knows but that's it. We have a great relationship and we both trust each other completely. Our sex life is very exploratory but he knows I have a much higher sex drive than him. He realizes I need other outlets. He has read a couple of my stories but there are a couple he can never read. ('Unexpected Bonus' is a fantasy I have about his boss which I don't think he would enjoy nearly as much as I do...)

I write non-erotica, I do need to say I am very impressed with the collective creativity here in comparision to other amatuer writing sites. The authors on the non eroctia sites seemed to sacrifice all art in order to be word perfect. Albeit their commas are perfectly placed their shit is so safe it makes my eyes bleed.

I do not consider them Dirty at all, I consider my stories very erotic. I know they are fantasy they are my fantasy and others find them HOT, I love to make others hot and know that I can reach them with the written word and not a touch or kiss but caress the mind. I love that. I find there is power in that. I told a few ppl many on a nudist site and many in my life, I want them to read it and see what they think...I am just getting started. I will feel the power pulsate through my being and feel my juices flow between my lips as well as the creative juices of the mind.
Read on dear ones, read on.

Looks like I'm not the only secretive author around. Nobody who knows me, knows I write as Alison Ames. I like to keep my fantasies a secret between me and hopefully a few thousand readers. LOL

Nobody in my life knows that I write erotic stories and share them here. It's my own little secret.

Interesting...my sister Barbara, actually she is my step-sister, I haven't talked to much this year...she lives up in the New England area...anyway, she is a Facebook friend, but she does not go on there much...apparently she did recently...and I post all my writing related stuff on FB, the only reason I joined was to share stuff with other writers...

She sent me a note today via FB..."lol love you writing Al! Good for you! I have always read harlequin and porn books lol. Ever read Anne Rices Sleeping beauty series??"

So, I gave her a bit of my writing story...and, of course, sent her the links to my profiles here and on Stories Space...

So...be interesting to see what she thinks of my writing...icon_smile

And maybe she'll end up joining this fine site known as Lush Stories...

Btw, my mother read a few of my stories recently..."Sexual Healing"..."Merry Christmas, Baby"...I told her that her dog is in it, it is btw...and my contest entry over on SS..."The Birthday Party"...and a few poems...

She liked all three...heck, she even gave "The Birthday Party" a 5 vote...

Well, at least that's what she said anyway...

So far, just one of my two roommates. Interestingly enough, when I told him I was writing erotic fiction, he told me he's done the same in the past.

Ha! I write pretty taboo stories so I'm not sure I'm comfortable with too many people knowing that I write sexy stories.

The only ones who know are the ones who are already interested in the things I write about. That eliminates the factor of someone reacting badly.

Two of my friends are now aware that I write on an erotic story website, and one of them (who writes similar things herself) has read some of my work.

It's not something I have much desire to share with many people in my life. If you knew me in person, you would almost certainly not guess at this side of me. It would certainly not be the end of the world if everyone found out, but I don't want to have that conversation too often.

Every day is a school day.

No one in my life knows.

I´m not sure if I want to tell anyone.

I think everyone has their secrets - lush is one of mine.

No one! It's my own secret place. A few of my colleagues know I write "fiction" pseudonymously in my spare time, but no one knows the nature of that fiction. I think that they would be surprised....

The husband knows I'm on here and he knows I write but he doesn't know the subject matter.


Really, sex and laughter do go very well together, and I wondered - and I still do - which is more important.

Three of my Girlfriends know and they've all read SOME stories, (but not all) and liked them. Two of my Guy friends know, one, though not an erotica fan thought they were well-done... The other friend flatly refuses to take a look and insists we're a bunch of immature perverts...

(One of the main reason I don't discuss my Lush writing with my friends is that I often write incest stories and they can be VERY HARD TO EXPLAIN to civilians who don't get what we do... One of the reasons I love Lush so much is that nobody here thinks that because I write it, I'd DO it.... I've written about being fucked by another man, and the only way I'd EVER do THAT is if I was in prison and it was a 'your ass or your life' situation... And I'm flattering myself here I know... (Ha!) I have to say I find it frustrating that a lot of people REALLY don't get what we do... I mean, nobody thinks Thomas Harris is all-in-favour of Serial Killers..... Sheesh!)

Wow. I never even thought about keeping it a secret. Everyone knows I write and most everyone (anyone I've ever had a long conversation about my writing with) knows that I write homosexual romance novels. I don't talk a lot about my writing to anybody beyond the basics, because it always begins the homosexuality = sin debate (which is utter bullshit and any that had read a pre-tranlation version knows it whether they continue the lie or not.)

My husband knew the day I signed up, and I tried to get him to read some of the stories. But he only read fantasy novels, and likes live action porn. So I haven't made much leeway on that. Somehow he manged to get me to agree to play Minecraft with him during that conversation. Yeah, I think I lost that battle.

I have started sharing my writings with a few whose opinion I respect. And, I might tell a total stranger, someone I will never see again, just for their response. But I have no desire for everyone to know.

I'm only worried about what they think aesthetically speaking because as far as writing goes I agree with Oscar Wilde. I have told one friend who says he'll read a story I've written and say what he thinks but he hasn't yet. Consequently if anyone else would like to give my effort a perusal I'd be very grateful.

My two sisters know I have been writing erotica, but have only read very carefully selected passages. Two other people IRL have read one of my stories. other that that, only people online have read my work.

There is no mark of self,
And no mark of others,
No mark of living beings,
And no mark of a life.
