I will typically read stories written by friends, commented/scored by friends, and/or people who I find interesting in the forums. I usually only read the stories that are in genres that I am interested in (i.e., incest is a turn off for me, so I don't read those). I think I actually read stories on Lush for about 18 months before I joined. Embarassed

If someone i've been chatting with asks, or a friends, i try my best to read their story. I also look to the EP section and people's first stories.

I usually search for words or in categories. Wife slut, cuckold, gang, dogging, humiliation! My faves!

First: Category
Second: Tags
Third: The one-liner

The first few paragraphs typically determine if I want to continue
reading the story. And sometimes, all I need are the first few
paragraphs to get my fill for the day, rate and/or comment.

Stories that the authors I like have favorited.
Stories of the authors I follow.
Recomendations from my friends.

Lately whenever I want something totally new and diferent, I use the random button... works wonders.

First thing, it depends on my mood. My mood tells me which category I want to read and then the title that draws my attention and if the first paragraph sounds interesting I'll read it all.

I also read stories from friends as well and people I'm following and if someone asks me nicely to give them an opinion on their story I'll read it too.

YES! love7 Also I check through my favorite categories and read the first few sentences, if I make it to the end of that I'll usually open the story.

I pick regardless of author. If the story grabs me, I'll read it. Usually all that is needed is the first few lines. The title and one liner help too. Sometimes I see someone's forum post and decide to check out their profile and then realise that I have, in fact, read some of their stories and when that happens it's always a nice surprise.

1. Stories by the authors I follow. The follow function makes sure I don't miss stories by the authors I enjoy reading.
2. Stories by friends, but there is a lot of crossover between them and the authors I follow.
3. Stories that start with a great hook in the title, tags, one-liner, or first few lines, although I usually skip the stories in categories that seem to have few gems. I like novels.


My latest story is too hot to publish. My most recent story before that is Even Stranger In Lust

I have got to know many authors so I read stories by people that I know write good ones. A well thought out title helps catch my eye. An interesting and intelligent teaser sentence that sounds interesting. If they are older stories the number of votes/comments and a good score get my attention. The genre is huge!

I do a combination of Buz and Gurlyboy. I have a slew of authors I follow so I get lots of email with such divine stories to read when I'm not able to log into lush.

I am working my way through my friends list and reading their stories. then I will read stories of people who follow me and those who have commented on my stories. I am also reading all the current competition stories.

It all depends on what I'm in the mood for and how much the first few lines interest me. I really don't have a specific way of choosing the stories I read. One thing that greatly influences my decision though is the story's grammar. I get easily turned off by a poorly written story that has the potential to be great but has suck-ish grammar. 3some

if there are no new stories from the authors i follow, i usually check my fave categories, then look out for interesting taglines/ summary provided, or the first few lines.

I tend to read stories by female authors first. I usuallyfind them more erotic and arousing.

For me just scrolling and finding an interesting story title does the trick.

I look through the categories for something I'll like. :)

If a story is rated lower, I am curious enough to see what it was that caused someone to vote as they did. Once I find it, I may mention it to the author. I try and be helpful in that way and hopefully it leads to a writer's improvement.

The opening lines, the tag lines and the number of comments. The score isn't always indicative.

1. new stories by friends
2. new stories by authors I'm following
3. older stories by friends or authors I'm following
4. new stories based on tags, descriptive line and opening paragraph.
5. random story button (but I don't always read every one that pops up).
6. stories down the list a way that have no votes, occasionally finding a gem, occasionally learning what or how NOT to write

I miss the average scores being on the home page stories. I always read high scoring stories,
now I find my self finishing fewer stories before clicking the 'back' button

Well for me i came here for the stories but have gotten sidetracked by some very wonderful people so my reading of stories has taken a bit of a hit but, the reading i have done, i have picked the story first by the name. Im not saying a title has to be the most impressive title ever made, but some thought in it helps. Some dont always need an impressive title though and the simple ones work. Once a story has been found i will read the first paragraph to get a feel for the story as well as the writer and if i enjoy it i will finish it isp willing angry7
