I’ve been writing kinky stories for about 30 years now, originally for my own pleasure, but thanks to the wonders of the Internet now also for others’ pleasure. I really appreciate the, erm, appreciative comments, and endeavour to read as much of other authors on Lush as I possibly can and return the favour.In personal matters I’m instinctively libertarian and anti-moralistic. I was going to say that I’m very much of the mind, to paraphrase, that consenting adults may do whatever they like, as long as they don’t do it in the street and scare the horses; although actually it would be rather fun if people did do it in the street, and I like a good reluctance story – reading and writing them.Careful readers will no doubt notice that women’s legs encased in nylon hold a special fascination for me. I’ve written many cuckold stories and stories with wives (preferably involved with people other than their husbands). I think this all stems from the time many years ago when I first encountered men’s mags and became obsessed with the couple of pages featuring pictures of “Readers’ Wives” rather than the glamorous models who littered the other 98 pages. As a teenager I would make up fantasies about what people I saw or met got up to in the bedroom (or elsewhere), and this habit continues to fuel the stories I write.Straight love stories and straight sex stories have never really gripped my attention. I incline to the view that one of the most vital roles of art is to provide what life itself for the most part does not (at least not for most people), or at the very least to provide an intensified, exaggerated or heightened version of reality. I’m in basic agreement with Freud that civilization requires a great deal of repression, which creates considerable psychological tension. In my view, art can help to relieve that tension, if used as an arena for the expression of otherwise repressed desires.As regards the delights of Lush, I’m happy to add new friends, but I feel compelled to point out that I don’t have very much time at all in which to chat – though I’m always happy to exchange e-mails for whatever reason. I’m especially grateful that it is a place where I can explore my decades’ old penchant for “readers’ wives” and single women alike and partake of others’ various intimate fantasies and real life adventures. Once or twice I’ve been asked if a certain story is truth or fiction, and while not wishing to rub anybody up the wrong way, that’s for me alone to know. By the same token, I don’t much care if particular stories are real or fantasies, as long as they hold my attention. Occasionally I’ve thought it might be fun to write a story at somebody else’s behest. I’m still unsure about it, but if you do have a request, let me know. No promises, except that I’ll think about it.Any other questions? Drop me a line.
Yeah, as one who sucks at self-promotion, thanks for the opportunity! 1) The one you wish more people had seen. I’m going to go with ”The Chain”, which is actually a series, but all of the episodes are free-standing. It’s a victim, I think, of series syndrome, with very long individual episodes and being in a category (Fantasy & Sci-Fi) that is a (fairly) niche taste to begin with (not to mention nondescript titles). The basic premise is that of the chain letter, with people receiving a mysterious envelope through the mail, which leads them to experience their deepest sexual desires and passing the gift on to someone else. I suppose the stories are a form of ‘magical realism’. I wish more people had read those stories because I had a lot of fun writing them, and still sometimes consider extending the chain. Maybe when or if I get round to E-book format.https://www.lushstories.com/stories/fantasy-scifi/the-chain-link-1a-1.aspx 2) Character that you've written that you'd most like to spend a night with I’m going to cheat here, because the “if they were real” part of the question is debatable. I had a particular real life acquaintance in mind while writing ”After the Book Cub”, on whom Karen is loosely based. Nothing can ever happen, because her husband is far from the acquiescent figure he is in the story – but you can always fantasize, can’t you?https://www.lushstories.com/stories/seduction/after-the-book-club.aspx 3) Most interesting female character. Again, a series. Catherine in “Dirty Little Secrets”, whose husband’s work takes him abroad every other week. She makes videos of herself to send him, while knowing that she has a secret admirer watching through the window as she pleasures herself. That’s how it starts. Then things spiral. Not all the parts are narrated by Catherine, but the fact that I kept the series up for 11 parts is testament to how interested I was in following her transformation from being ‘a bit naughty’ to… Well, make up your own mind!https://www.lushstories.com/stories/wife-lovers/dirty-little-secrets-1-performing-for.aspx 4) Most interesting male character. One I have yet to create, I think. No one character, rather the basically amoral men in the majority of my Cuckold stories. Amoral characters hold a particular fascination for me – in the stories I read as well as the ones I write. 5) Story whose success surprised you. I’m always surprised whenever I’m awarded an RR or an EP. I mean I wouldn’t submit stories if I didn’t think they were any good, but I’ll freely admit that there are authors on Lush whose stories I consider far superior to my own. The biggest surprise is “The Ride Home”, perhaps because it gave me a “breakthrough” of sorts. Not only is it an RR, but the response to it from readers in general far exceeded any expectations I had, not least because it was a bit of an experiment. I was reading a novel at the time, which I didn’t much like, but the style stuck with me, and it’s that stylistic influence that makes “The Ride Home” a story that many readers seem to respond to as being a bit different (even if I wimped out at the end). Years later I still get the occasional PM about it. I’ve half promised to try and write something else in that style, but I can’t seem to get back into that headspace.https://www.lushstories.com/stories/reluctance/the-ride-home.aspx 6) A story you were nervous about posting. All of them. Every story submission is presaged by questions like, “Is this too silly?”, “Is this too outlandish?”, “Is there enough of a plot?”, “Is it too juvenile?”. And so on. There are quite a few unfinished or unpublished stories on my hard drive which I just didn’t feel were good enough or going anywhere. But the one published story that sticks in my mind as a “nearly didn’t appear” is my entry for the fetish competition, “Living Doll”. It exemplifies perfectly the rather odd thing that the stories I’m most uncertain about, are often those that seem to strike the most enthusiastic chord with many readers. I was really, really ambivalent about the merits of “Living Doll”, but the readers who like it are extremely enthusiastic, a bit like the situation with “The Ride Home”. Maybe I should dust off some of those unpublished works.https://www.lushstories.com/stories/fetish/living-doll-1.aspx 7) your raunchiest story. All of them. Well, not quite, but as I state (somewhat pretentiously) in my profile, “I incline to the view that one of the most vital roles of art is to provide what life itself for the most part does not (at least not for most people), or at the very least to provide an intensified, exaggerated or heightened version of reality.” Thus, to me, writing about cuddly, marital sex holds no appeal. If I had to pick one story, it would be “Throwing Prudence to the Wind”, once you’ve got past the explanation of how Prudence gets to find herself in the middle of an orgy.https://www.lushstories.com/stories/hardcore/throwing-prudence-to-the-wind.aspx 8) your sappiest story None of them. I don’t do sappy. Really. There’s a reason I haven’t written anything in the “Love Stories” category. I just can’t do it. It’s like my taste in music. At the moment I’m excessively fond of the song “All Is Equal in Love” by Meilyr Jones, but that’s my fill of sappy for the year. If I could write something with the same kind of ambience as songs like “Heart of Oak” by Richard Hawley or “Pure” by The Lightning Seeds, I’d do it, but story writing is as much about knowing your limitations as knowing your strengths. 9) the one you're proudest of. The one I’m proudest of is “Fare Dodging”, my first Flash story. The reason for this is that brevity really isn’t my thing (as you can tell if you’ve read this far). So to manage to produce a coherent story that stuck to a thousand word limit is probably my greatest personal achievement as a story writer.https://www.lushstories.com/stories/flash-erotica/fare-dodging.aspx 10) a story you want to mention just because. Once a story’s published, I’m more or less done with it, and I become preoccupied with whatever I’m working on, or whatever ideas I have in my head. Right now the story that’s occupying my thoughts is a Reluctance story, working title “Slut-In-A-Box”. Coming soon to whatever device you log onto Lush from.
In a perfect world, adults would be grown up about adult stuff. In the real world, some grown-ups are shockingly judgmental about adult stuff. Ergo it's perfectly natural for people to want to preserve their anonymity. Nevertheless, not uploading any kind of avatar is a bit dull.
I'm not American, but I have had this argument with people in Europe who criticize the US. As you suggest, there's not not going to be a global superpower - so if there's a void, who do you want? There are only two feasible candidates; China and Russia. That's not for me. That's not to say that the US couldn't handle international relations better, but out of the available options it's still the best one.
Unlike the judges, I didn't manage to read too many of the entries over the festive season, but congratulations to the winners and honourable mentions. I've clearly got some catching up to do.
I hold "A Day in the Life" as the Beatles' greatest moment, though on average I rate a few other bands of the era higher.
I think George Orwell got it more or less right:“Writing a book is a horrible, exhausting struggle, like a long bout with some painful illness. One would never undertake such a thing if one were not driven on by some demon whom one can neither resist nor understand.”
Damn! I have to raise my game, clearly!In all seriousness, some great entries and deserving prize winners.Thanks to everyone who voted and commented and expressed their appreciation.An honourable mention of my own to timojen for "Finding Rachel's Switch". Wish I'd written it myself.
To defeat your opponent you have to know and understand them. This, I think. The oft-mentioned similarities with the Brexit vote in the UK are actually quite instructive, if you look at the responses from the losing sides. In both cases there's a kind of ourtraged righteousness which manifests as branding those who voted on the winning side as "racists, bigots, etc, etc". The losing sides are refusing to give up on their sense that they are self-evidently "right" about everything, and this a) prevents them from doing the necessary soul-searching to move forward, and b) explains why they lost in the first place - i.e. their inherent sense of their own "rightness" prevented them from taking the opposite sides' views seriously enough to counter them with arguments that would sway voters.The ultimate failure is this idea that the opposing side is misguided and just plain wrong. No doubt there are genuine racists and bigots who voted for Brexit and for Trump, but there is also a large section of people who had perfectly reasonable reasons for voting the way they did which have nothing to do with bigotry, but everything to do with their own life situations. The Remain Campaign and the Democrats failed to take these reasons into account, because their own sense of righteousness prevented them from seeing such reasons as legitimate and thus taking them seriously, and consequently they paid the price. To take an analogy from sports; to win you have to play to your strengths, but you also have to take into account your opponent's strengths and adjust your tactics to nullify them.Not being an American, I didn't vote in the presidential election (but since a large part of my income is tied up with a large American multinational, the result might potentially effect me personally in some way that's impossible to foresee at present). What I can say, however, is that ever since I was first entitled to vote, I've felt increasingly disenfranchised with every passing election, to the point now where I routinely seek out some candidate who doesn't stand a snowman's chance in hell of winning anything. I feel that it's important to vote, but faced with two evils, I would rather opt for some other alternative rather than do the tactical "lesser of two evils" thing, because every vote for the one of two evils only perpetuates the system as is, and that's the way I would have felt had I been voting in the presidential election.PS. On the Electoral College. It's quite possible that the system needs tweaking. However, bear in mind that it militates against a situation where elections are won and lost in large urban areas and smaller rural or more sparsely populated areas are thus completely neglected by the powers that be.
From saviour to traitor in four short days. Almost makes me feel sorry for the guy. Welcome to the world of football manage... sorry... politics, Donald.

She checked herself out, front and back, in the mirror of the changing room. The blue and white dress with diagonal stripes of varying widths wasn’t quite the kind of thing she normally wore, but it was close enough for her husband not to become suspicious. She felt it accentuated her breasts nicely, which was the effect she was looking for, as well as being a few inches shorter than the...

I loathe Christmas. In fact I loathe any prescribed festivity which obliges one to feign good will towards people one is at best indifferent to at all other times. Christmas is especially vile since the people most likely to go into a huff over the gift you’ve bought them are those who have spent weeks telling you, “It’s the thought that counts.” And you can’t go shopping without being force...

The feed was in black and white and showed a woman in a kitchen. A gently striped cat sat on one of the kitchen chairs watching her as she picked up a plate from the floor and rinsed it under the tap. She got out a new plate and ripped open a packet of cat food. Swiftly she replenished both dry and wet food, and changed the water. The cat merely observed, waiting until the woman had moved...

I come home from work to find her there, in the living room. She’s on her knees in an armchair, torso draped over the back, arms dangling and cuffed, and there’s a spreader bar between her ankles. She’s wearing heels, white nylons, and a flowery, virginal white dress. She’s completely still and completely silent. I stand behind her and lift her dress. There’s pale skin above her stocking...

I may have been eighteen and of stout health, but I almost had a heart attack. My father was standing in the hall, holding his hand over the telephone’s mouthpiece. “It’s Harry Cathcart,” he said. “You remember we went round and helped him out with some DIY a month or two back?” I remembered. Of more recent memory was going round to Mrs Craddock’s for some fun and games, only to discover...

“Tell Angela I’ll be down in a few minutes!” my mother shouted down the stairs. “She’ll be down in a few minutes,” I said. Mrs Hotter, who was standing right next to me, smiled, no doubt at the absurdity of me repeating what she’d just heard. I was more nervous about being alone with Mrs Hotter now than I had been when we were still rutting like animals. Normally when she came round to...

“Have a nice time, dear!” my mother called out as I left the house. Not for the first time I wondered what she’d think if she knew what kind of ‘nice time’ I was hoping for. For the past few months I’d had many very nice times with her good friend Mrs Hotter, an affair which had ended when we were caught in the act by her son, Tommy. However, Mrs Hotter had given me to understand that...

Amy was waiting for her at the appointed spot. Beneath the coat Prudence could see the younger woman was wearing black nylons and black shoes with heels far too tall for anyone’s comfort. The two females hugged. “So do we take a bus, or should we call a taxi?” Prudence asked. “No point,” Amy said. “It’s not far at all. This way.” She set off down the street, Prudence falling into step...

Hello Cuck, time for a new report. I’m sure I shall have plenty of time to set down the evening’s events while the centre of attention herself sleeps them off upstairs. She certainly needs her rest. Thank you for sharing, by the way. Your wife, my fuck toy. I’m still not sure why you refuse to witness our little adventures for yourself, but I can’t make you do anything. Unlike your wife, my...

All I wanted was to smell Caroline’s used panties. It wasn’t even as if I was breaking and entering, since we had one of her spare keys just as she had one of ours, in case of emergency. Admittedly this was no emergency, but an opportunity had presented itself, and I couldn’t resist the temptation. My wife was staying overnight at her sister’s. I’d seen our next door neighbour leave the...
