Topic Nymphomaniacs?? Are you out there for real??

Perhaps a better word for Lushies would be nym-faux? :)
I agree with KailaLynn, it is a condition that is beyond control, beyond need. It is a compulsion and yes part of the condition is the lack of true pleasure from sex or the ability to have a lasting relationship with their partners. They can not help themselves and a true nympho will take a chance for sex above all else, even personal safety. I do not believe anyone on here is a true nympho, talking and typing here would take away from the real act and they would be out looking for that, We are all to so extent nymphos on here but it is a choosen condition for us, we enjoy it, talking about it, watching it and reading about it. The problem is the lack of control to stop.
and rocco, I got my list of names from this thread, did you
Topic 10 second Tip: FORESHADOWING
28 Mar 2012 12:56
There's a trick to balanced foreshadowing that is going to take me some time to get the hang of. It's an important, valuable device to use, but I feel like even when I use it in a subtle fashion, it's not enough, and a cliffhanger ending comes off more like a nasty left hook. Too easy to make the reader feel cheated, even when it wasn't meant that way.
Topic How many stories do people have on the go at once?
28 Mar 2012 12:52
Sometimes I feel like I've got some sort of attention deficit problem. I mean, with all the writing I've done over the years, I've only actually written -two- stories, one short and one longish, and that just recently. I've got a follow-up to that in the works, but every time I start on it, my brain flips over to a half-dozen other different ideas I've got running around in my head, stories that have had false starts but haven't gone anywhere, one that is in such desperate need of polishing that it can't rightly be called a story and- oooooooo a pretty butterfly!
Topic Do you write non-erotica?
22 Mar 2012 16:18
I do an insane amount of recreational writing, but that's all it is, really. The only stories I've actually published have been erotica. That's not to say that I wouldn't like to do it someday, if my writing skills improve sufficiently that I wouldn't consider it wasted effort, but for now? Just fun & scribbles.
Topic turned on by your own stories
22 Mar 2012 12:05
Remains to be seen whether my writing is as much a turn-on for other people as it is for me, but I've found that even with plot-heavy, sex-light writing, I still get turned on by my own work. Testament to the brain doing as much for the experience as the body, when it's all in my head, I suppose.
