I've been researching this site for an article I'm writing and chatting with people here for the last month.

I've made some truly amazing connections here and am grateful for everyone's input however I couldn't hit everyone up for an interview so I'm hoping you will help me out by letting me know why you came to Lush and what has kept you here ever since.

No usernames will be used, DISCRETION is an absolute because I do not want to compromise anyone's online life, including my own. Send me a message if you want to chat further about this.

I am specifically looking for input from women, 25-55 but am still interested in what everyone has to say.

Thanks in advance!!!

Im 20 but hey.

I originally found this site by looking for hot stories to read. Kept coming back several times but it was a few weeks before I actually made an account. I barely read anymore but stay for the forum and chatting to some great people where i can be open and honest about sex and not be judged for it

Thanks for that!! I really appreciate the info!!! And yes, you can't be on a site like this and judge someone's sexual preference. Cheers!

I agree with MM. I came here for the stories and it took me a month of so before I registered for a account. I have meet some really great people here and am better for that. I still read some of the stories but mainly am here for the friendship and the fun.

My story: some months ago I was watching some porn, when I saw a guy with such a monster cock. He was dressed, sitting on a sofa, while a young girl performed a fellatio on him. The way he hid the base of the cock, and the editing of the video, made me think it was a fake rubber cock.

When he cum, he loaded like a litter of milk on her mouth, the whole thing was just surreal, I just loved the way she asked " Jeez, what have you eaten?" . So I decided to join some erotica forum (I wont say which one) and very politely ask the forumites what they thought about that guy's cock. It was just stupid, I already knew the whole thing was fake. Unfortunately I was banned automatically, I guess they thought I was a spammer or something.

So I thought "okey, let's just google other forums and find one about erotica where one can go and talk about sexual subjects", and Lushstories came up, so here am I.

It's a nice place, very informative and interesting, with intelligent and nice people to deal serious subjects, (I wont say names, they know who they are), and at the same time when I want a good laff I go to the Word/ Games Forum, there's an interesting crowd there, always ready to have some fun.

Besides, it's a good way to improve my English, (I'm an ESL guy), and get some ideas for my writing , I hope it helps on your research.

Thumbs up!

PS, By the way, if you want to see that video send a PM...I am talking on purely academical basis here.

I've noticed that trend, as well. Read the stories, sign up, chat, cyber sex, leads to phone sex and possibly IRL encounters. The relationships here fascinate me and it's nice to see that this community supports more than just poppin one off. Thanks so mych for the input, I really do appreciate it!

My story is about the same. Was looking for a place to be able to read some good short erotica stories for free. Happened upon this gem of a site :). Been here ever since off and on for the past couple of years reading stories. Just recently (a few months ago) decided to check out the forum area, and haven't turned back since lol, it's entertaining, enlightening at times, and great fun in here! Lots of good folks around, in my opinion :).

I come for the food. The service is pretty good too. Prices aren't bad for a free place.

Gets my mind off of the daily grinds of working. Been keeping me occupied from being bored and spending money on endless pursuit of NOTHING! So essentially Lush is saving me hundreds upon hundreds of pennies! lol

I came here to publish stories and enjoy the forums. The pics are a hobby and turn-on and it's cool to have a place for them too. Lush has everything a sex fiend might want. I'll tell you, I searched high and low for anything I could work with and failed until I found this site. Thanks Lush! : )

Torture the data long enough and they will confess to anything.

I had a few erotica sites I requented in the past, but the size of the words on the screen and sometimes the blinding colours and the size of the small words put me off going back. Also I disliked what I kept reading and wanted something better.
I must have come across Lush at some point, I like the clarity of Lush, no blinding colours the size of the print on screen when I read it doesn't affect my stigmatisim.
Everything is set out so clearly on Lush. I think I lurked for a while reading stories and skimming to the juicy bits!
Then like other's liked the site so much I bravely made a profile and enjoyed filling it out, then I enjoyed adding images and looking for really good erotic art work.
I also felt one day that a couple of stories I had lurking around in my mind since I was very young and put them into a story.
I keep coming back because it satisfies my need to gather new information in the forums, and think tank when I want a decent read is enjoyable also.
Also, the people on Lush I really like too they make me smile and laugh - thanks Lush! xxx

I came to lush in search of erotic stories. I sent a private message to one of the authors who I was really impressed with, and surprisingly, she responded. I developed a very deep friendship with her, and because of that I was hooked. She's long gone, but if not for Lia, I wouldn't have met the other people who now keep me coming back to lush.

Googled erotic stories and found Lush...3 or so years later I'm still here. I was an anonymous reader and one day I joined, then posted in the forums, then decided to write a story and now I'm hooked and logon every day. The site has evolved from a erotic story site since I started. It is a much more social place. I love that!

Pretty much like everyone else I was looking around for some erotic stories got bored with porn for a while and found Lush. I lurked around just reading before I decided to finally join. I have been on now bout a couple of years and I love it. the reason I stay now is all the friendships I have made cause of Lush some I am very close with I even talk to a good amount of them on the phone. Like Lois said it has evolved a lot since I first joined up. I love playing in the forums and in the chatrooms as well I don't do a whole lot of reading these days as I am here now more for the social side of it the best thing to come from Lush is meeting my girlfriend without it I would have never found her.

Found it late one night while searching for stories. I believe it was linked to a story I read elsewhere. I stay because it's a great social network, where you can make great friends and read some outstanding stories. Chat is awesome as well. It just seems kind of like home away from home.

Well that's just my opinion, sorry if you don't like.

I cam to Lush, because I was looking for erotic stories to read. I take the booooring tube everyday, and thus I cannot watch erotic pictures or videos. So, I thought I download a few stories everyday and sweeten my commute. Then I thought that I should give back to 'the community'. I also found that thinking about erotic contents could funnel my erotic energy into something .... ahem how would you call it?....'productive'. I started with group sex, since this is what I always have dreamed about. Then I got more daring and wrote incest stories. C'mon, beat me - I wanted to have as many hits as possible.
Why do I stay? If you would have asked me two weeks ago I would have answered: because I like it and it stimulates me.
But the last two weeks have been turmoil for me. Actually, I don't know if I will stay on Lush. It can be a dangerous place.

I found the site and was reading the stories before I ever joined. Since I've joined, the people are definitely what keep me here - there are some really great folks, and I love it! (And them!)

I wanted to clean up my old stories and write a few new ones. I stumpled upon lush through a google search and posted my first few. I expected them to score low so that didnt scare me away... but when I wrote a new one and it got a lot of views it encouraged me to write some more. At first I just wanted to write and post but then I started discovering authors I had admired from other sites. And holy crap, I could talk to them and they replied. That was pretty cool. The social aspect and the surprisingly jackass free forum (well until I started posting) was fun and that's why I keep coming back everyday.

Well, I'm 27 and came to lush for the stories... I actually googled erotic stories and lush was one of the pages that popped up.. I then read stories... but then saw you could join. So, I did.... in time, I started making friends and writing stories, and I must admit that I've made a few good, very good friends and that keeps me coming back.

Your quite welcome sexual C
I've found this lush crowd to be notorious for helping others and having a sense of humor.

I actually came for the sexual circus around here,
and I enjoy reading about sex.
But don't get me wrong, I still like having sex too

Well I suppose pretty much the same as most; looked for erotic stories, and realising I had stumbled upon an outlet for myself as well, joined. Little did I realise at the time that I had actually fallen upon an entire community of like-minded others who were willing to chat, share and assist. In the short time I have been a member, although I have written a few stories, the wonderful friends I have made on here far exceed any expectations I might have had. To the originators of Lush; I compliment you on creating this site ...and to the people assisting in the everyday running and the contributors; thank you for this wonderful playground - From another "Lush-junkie"

A friend from Fetlife introduced me to this site after she read some of my work and said I should post some here, I have found some good friends I like to think and read some truly gifted authors. They have been kind to me also about my work and that really helps. I believe I am gonna be here awhile. You prople are great, and the ego boost is wonderful...... thank you all for the wonderfully kind comments
