It's been FOREVER since I updated this! I've been a member of Lush for a long time now and I've had a fabulous time reading and sharing stories here. In my normal life I work in an office job that defines boring. Writing is my escape. My stories usual involve themes of the taboo, the forbidden, the naughty. I particular am found of stories of the less experienced being educated by someone, sexual exploration. Really I just like anything fun and interesting. I'll admit to having a big ego. I love hearing feedback about my work, be it good or bad. Of course I'd love to hear all good things about what i post, but I'd like just as much to hear about things you didn't like. As long as it's honest let me know. I hope to give you the same. With all that said, happy writing all.Cheers!
I have to ask though, did you make this post for the sole purpose of people agreeing with you? You say that you didn't post to cause any tension, but you seem to have an issue with the fact that people don't have the same issues with this contest as you do. No. As I said, in the actual quote you used, it wasn't. I was just surpised that everyone seemed to react as though I was insulting the site and the contest which I wasn't.
Thank you Clum. It seems like emotions are running a little high with some people which wasn't my intention. Nor was it my intention to just hear from those who agree with me. I've heard many many good point from those that disagree on this post already.
Why is it being perceived that I'm being a jerk about this? I'm not saying Lush Is doing anything bad or wrong or that i think the site sucks or that this contest sucks. All I was trying to ask "Seems a little the nose marketing/advertising wise. Kinda makes it seem a little forced. Anyone else feel that way?" Really that's all. I'm not trying to be a dick about it.
I don't think it's a "bad" thing. Just that knowing it is a self promotional tool, makes the contest seem a bit contrived and takes a some of the fun out of it for me. Clearly I am in the minority on this point.
Ok. Wow. No one agrees with me. Forget I asked.
Okay let me say upfront I am NOT trying to anger or insult anyone, I am just stating an opinion about something and trying to see how others feel about i:. I've submitted stories to the passed two contests on Lush. I've enjoyed the experience greatly both times and I've been eagerly looking forward to this next one. However the theme of the current contest feels a little...different. having to include a toy that is specifically sold by the Lush sex shop. And whats more the prize being store credit. It feels kinda contrived to me. Almost like it's a big marketing gimmick. I still want and plan to submit to the contest, and read the entries that go in. But This theme just doesn't seem as creative or fun as the others have. Does anyone else feel this way? (AGAIN NO OFFENSE INTENDED TO ANYONE INVOLVED IN THE CONTEST OR THE SITE)
I love it there are no complications, just pleasure and then you go on with the rest of your life. That is my attitude as well. I think casual sex can be a great as long as both partners are on the same page about it. Problems CAN arise if both people don't go into it expecting the same thing. Otherwise I think it can be a fun and perfectly healthy for two consenting adults to basically say to each other "excuse me, but since you aren't using your genitals as the moment would mind if I use them?" without needing the whole trappings of a relationships. My girlfriend of seven years, are both allowed to pursue casual sex with others, provided two things: We are honest with each other about it, and the other party knows we are in a committed relationship with someone else.
Generally it goes like this:1)An idea occurs. Usually it's very rough, revolving around a single scene, image or perhaps even a line of dialogue. It will grow and become masturbation fodder as it take shape in my head more and more until I decide "I have to get this down on paper"2) Then there is a lot of Procrastination. As well as masturbating3) Finally I begin to write it long hand on a legal pad, generally on the bus, or outside under tree on my break from work, whilst chain smoking and listening to NPR on my headphones. This usually takes a long time, because almost in variably, another idea with occur around this point distracting me. However when I'm lucky, I'll get hot and write until my hand cramps up.5) More procrastination, more masturbating6) I've finished the story long hand. I'm satisfied with it enough that I want to type it up. Usually this part involves lots of changes to the original draft. Honing fleshing out details. Often a lot gets altered in this part.7) Once it's done, I re-read it to myself, checking to make sure it flows and to make corrections. Invariably I miss things.8) submit it to Lush, and wait in agony for it to go up or be rejected.9) Once it's been approved, sigh in relief and wait for it inevitably to be overshadowed by the work of more talented writers.
I know there are prohibitions against referencing anything underage, so I will word my question carefully: WITHOUT saying how old you were, do you recall the first thing that came along and got you titillated and interested in sex? As a child of the 90s, mine, crazy as it may sound, was The Addams Family movies. You had Angelica Houston wearing that gorgeous, tight dress, looking pale and beautiful saying things like "Gomez, last night you were unhinged. You like some desperate, howling demon. You frightened me...do it again." And her moaning in ecstasy as Raul Julia frantically pawed and kissed her. It made me very interested and very curious in just what they were talking about.Does anyone else remember what first did it for them?
So, when do we learn about the next one? lol. I am sure I can't be the only person eager to start working on seeing my hopes dashed by those far more talented then I.
His roommate’s name was James Wotan. After Michael was able to get over his surprise he introduced himself. “How did you know about the peepholes?” Wotan shrugged as he put down his packet on the opposite bed. “My older brother went here. He filled me in on some of the…peculiarities. They’re all over the place, bedrooms, showers, classrooms. The freshmen dorms are laid out deliberately,...

The limousine pulled through the imposing rod iron gate, the words “EROS ACADEMY” emblazoned above it. As the wheels rolled up the long driveway, past the manicured lawns and fountains, Michael felt his heart flutter as he looked at the tremendous building on the other end of the grounds. He could see other cars and gaggles of people milling about. He swallowed hard. “Darling please, you...

Night was just beginning to envelope the land as he set fourth. A gentle breeze rolled in from the south, rustling the underbrush and carrying with it a thousand fascinating scents. He breathed deep, relishing the bouquet of flowers, fruits, a thousand wild kinds of dung and dark, rich earth. He filled his lungs with the smells of countless unseen beasts and a multitude of roots and leaves...

“Jessica, spread your legs,” Ms. Reynolds ordered laying her hands on her thighs. She moved slowly. “Come on now don’t be shy. He’s seen it all before I’m sure.” Sighing a little, she parted her legs wider. Michael stared between them, eyeing the flame of red hair trimmed into the shape of a heart offset by the snowy pale skin around it. He lowered himself gently to the floor, feeling...

"So dickweed, you and what's her name make it yet?" Frank asked. Alan said nothing and kept reading his French assignment. Frank persisted, "how about it? You finally get to slip that pitiful little excuse for a cock to her?" Alan's brow furrowed and his lips pursed, "Shut up." He muttered, turning the page before he'd finished reading it. "What's the matter? Can't find it without...
