Longtime reader, first time erotica writer. I've been reading dirty stories for as long as I've been interested in sex, and it's something I always come back to. I hope to post stories that reflect my fantasies, to turn on and get turned on. I like exhibitionism/voyeurism, stories about girls playing with themselves, and innocent/first time stories, among others. Writing? We'll see where that takes me. Look forward to heading into the depraved imaginations of my fellow contributors, and hopefully write some stuff people read and enjoy in the process.
Nicely done, everyone! I really enjoyed this set of entries.
A few of my faves, since this thread's still kicking:"The beet is the most intense of vegetables. The radish, admittedly, is more feverish, but the fire of the radish is a cold fire, the fire of discontent not of passion. Tomatoes are lusty enough, yet there runs through tomatoes an undercurrent of frivolity. Beets are deadly serious."Tom Robbins, Jitterbug Perfume"It was a pleasure to burn."Fahrenheit 451, Ray Bradbury"The sky above the port was the color of television, tuned to a dead channel."Neuromancer, William Gibson
I think it's a great feature, thanks! I'd love to be able to access that page once I've signed in as well. (Or is there a way to do that and I'm missing it?)
I like a clean title that perhaps poses an intriguing image or scenario. Though there is a nice direct simplicity to, ahem, "I rubbed one out on his desk" - had to smile at that one. If the "this is what happens in my story -- BOOM" style of title sounds hot to me, hey, I might read it, even enjoy it. But I probably won't respect myself afterwards. :)Now subtitles, I don't mind dragging those into the smut. Something I've started doing is picking a favorite line or something that sounds like a decent hook from the story and making that the subtitle.
Love is a burning thing.
In general yes, I find the tags informative and useful, though certainly not the only consideration. They can be useful as search terms, so maybe someone will find your story after it's moved off the front page if they're looking for something specific. I also appreciate when an author has fun with the tags. Frank Lee has some choice ones -- bumpin', humpin', cranking, yanking, spanking. Doesn't add anything to the classification, but lets me know he's got a sense of humor at the outset.
I think a site like Lush exists primarily for the entertainment and enjoyment of both readers and writers. From my observation, most of us come to this site to read sexy stories, post sexy stories, and feel good doing it. One of the side effects of that environment is that scores and comments aren't necessarily an accurate reflection of what most people thought of your work, and skew positive. Try to find a story that scores lower than a four on average -- I just clicked through about 10 random pages and found none. Then you've got the pros on the site, with hundreds of 5 ratings and effusively positive comments. Clearly, they're doing something special to knock it out of the park, and it's reflected in the ratings/comments. I'd say that you're squarely in the area of "doing something right" with your high scores and number of comments. That said, we can all stand to improve, and I totally agree that constructive criticism is one of the best ways to get better as a writer. I think it would be cool if Lush offered some kind of "workshop" component for those interested in improving their stories, a la overmyknee's informal thread (which is a great idea, I'll definitely be taking a look at that). I don't know if Lush's comment system will ever quite provide the kind of critical feedback you're looking for, though.
Thanks all. Variety of techniques out there! My plus signs had mysteriously disappeared, so I went back and used asterisks. All seems well.In the future, though, I think I'll go with the classic "tits, devil, sperm, bouncing-dick-alien":
Excellent, thanks. I figured that would be the case or else no one would want to address typos or other mistakes in their stories. But now I will edit without fear!
If I want to fix a typo, say, or correct a small issue with one of my stories, what will happen when I resubmit? Does the story lose all views, votes and comments and appear on the front page as if it were a new story, or does it simply update and retain views, etc.?
Alex heard a sharp rap at the door. He had rescheduled with Zoe at the last minute, and she must’ve come early. Not that he minded. Their weekly visits had turned into increasingly filthy fuck sessions, so the extra time would be well spent. Alex got up to let Zoe in, ready to grab her, turn her around and take her right there in the entry way. He opened the door, devilish grin...

Monday Morning She walked into the cafe today. I'd never seen her; she must have been new. Truth is, I couldn’t even believe she was real. Like in a movie, I did a double take, had to rub my eyes. She couldn’t be older than twenty, ten years my junior, but carried herself with a confidence and grace that caught my attention right away. She sat across from me at another table, pulled out...

She was late. Again. Alex looked down at his standardized testing books sprawled across his desk and sighed. Zoe was smart, and he enjoyed teaching her, but punctuality was not a strong point. He could never really stay upset when she arrived, though, flashing that smile that made him melt. He also couldn’t get enough of her cute, innocent face framed by long strawberry blond hair, and...

Jake stroked his hard cock in the shower as his eyes glazed over. Almost there, but at the same time he was enjoying the feeling of holding off. Tiffany was waiting for him to get out, he knew, and he was taking a little longer than he should, but fuck it, it felt good to finally get a chance for some relief. Tiffany…fuck. As soon as the name popped into his head (as did her lovely face...

Kyle wasn’t really a “strip club guy.” But after a stressful week of client meetings in Portland, none of which went particularly well, he found himself staring up at the flickering neon sign of the seedy all-nude joint, Bad Girls Club. “Well, here goes,” he thought as he padded the few hundred in cash he pulled out from an ATM a little earlier after he had nearly been fired for showing...

“Go on, don’t be shy, there’s no turning back now.” She licked her lips, still flushed, ragged breathing. My initial shot of fear and adrenaline is now channeled entirely to my lower half. She’s right. What more do I have to lose here? So I look at her, lick my hand, get it nice and slick with saliva, then go to work on my painfully hard erection. Stroking my hand up and down as I...

It’s 11:30. The place is empty. We’re supposed to close at 1 a.m. but fuck it, it’s Friday. I’ve had the late shift at the college library for the past three nights, and all I want to do is close up, go to my dorm, watch some porn, stroke myself off and fall asleep. After the week I had, that sounds like the perfect end to the night, to be honest. If I close an empty library a bit early,...
