Just a regular guy (and a story moderator for Lush) that enjoys writing erotic stories as a hobby, when the weather is too hot or too nasty to be outside. I lean toward stories about couples - married or not - where the partners are (or become) somewhat adventurous, but the woman more so than the man. Cuckold stories sometimes, other times just cheating, or even merely flirting, temptation and fantasy. My stories tend to be somewhat longer and more winding, with a lot of scene, background, and character development rather than just quick, hot, all-sweaty-sex tales. Not that there's anything wrong with that, as they say on Seinfeld; it's just not my cup of tea. Still, I do enjoy a hot, well-written sex scene!
you could just use a synonym for awesome too. Like, marvelous or wondrous. I like it, and the alliteration works too - Marvelous Member. Tried to come up with an "L" one too (for Lush) but not thinking of a lot of positive L words. Lovely Lushie was about the best I could do.

Good to know. I'm pretty new as an author and do my best to edit my own work. However, when I let others read it they sometimes see things I miss. I still have trouble knowing when to use comma, semicolon, or colon. When I was in college creative writing I should have listened closer. Seeing how my wife taught English, it is easy to ask her or a friend to proof read. They never change the content but point out punctuation errors. I'm getting better through practice. Hopefully in time I will be independent. One of the things great about this site are those who help one another. I've developed a deep love for writing and owe most of that to Lush. When I recieve advice or edit help I always credit that person. Until I achieve that level of competence I will refrain from entering. I believe a great story is so much more than punctuation. <img src="/forum/images/emoticons/my2cents.gif" alt="My 2 cents"> You should enter. As Nymph says, you're an outstanding author, and although I've never acted as a judge (thank God!) I suspect that the stories are judged far more heavily on creativity and how enjoyable, readable, and erotic they are than on punctuation. You consistently knock those categories out of the park. If you have an idea that fits a competition being run, by all means, write!
What I was trying to do, in case I wasn't as clear as I'd hoped, was suggest that I thought the new rule --or stricter interpretation of old ones, whichever it is-- was excessively and perhaps unreasonably strict.Personally, I don't agree with the new rule, nor with the some of the analogies given (if I had to make a school-based one, I'd perhaps offer up the idea of an open-notes test, which is 100% legit if allowed, and 100% cheating if not. The examiner gets to decide).Going back to matters that I hope are happier... If you haven't yet read Thin Ice , you should check it out -- it's a real treat. Comp entries are already an open-notes test, aren't they? You can use Spell-check or Grammarly or whatever word processing aid you choose; you have access to dictionaries and thesaurus; you can do as much or as little research as you feel necessary on Google or any other internet source; and you can access dozens of different writing resources with helpful tips and guidelines - pretty much all that's being asked is that the end story be your own work. And you're right about "Thin Ice"; great story, incredibly well written!
Just plucking one from my favourites list I'll have to go for Now You've Done it, Levi Strauss! Great title, fab picture and a damn good read. https://www.lushstories.com/stories/quickie-sex/now-youve-done-it-levi-strauss.aspx As for one of my own... how about Let The Games Begin That piece of Flash's working title was Speed Dating with 'let the games begin' as a tag line. It works much better switched around.https://www.lushstories.com/stories/flash-erotica/let-the-games-begin.aspx Thank you, my lovely and generous friend! <img src="/forum/images/emoticons/embarassed.gif" alt="Embarassed"> One that very much intrigued me was "Doesn't mean I love you, Wilson Reedy", by our very talented thread originator, Puddleduck. https://www.lushstories.com/stories/anal/doesnt-mean-i-love-you-wilson-reedy.aspxIt was in the homepage story picks box for a whole month, I think, but for some unknown reason I didn't read it. The title stuck with me though, until I went and found it and read it. If for any reason you haven't, YOU SHOULD! I kicked myself for waiting so long, but pleasure delayed was certainly not pleasure denied. Great story.Of my own... hmm. Possibly "Seven Year Ache" (2 parts) because it's titled after a Roseanne Cash song that I love, but the story has absolutely nothing to do with the song. I just liked the play on words of the old cliché, "seven-year itch".https://www.lushstories.com/stories/cuckold/seven-year-ache-part-1-of-2.aspx
I guess what bothers me is that we encourage students to have "fresh eyes" look at their paper for spelling and grammar mistakes and now we're being told (or maybe it's just implied) that isn't such a good idea. As for the scores, I agree they should stay hidden and thankfully Gav added the score count onto our timelines so we know if/when our comp entries qualify. Another of the mods (who also happens to be a teacher) used a good analogy to this. She compared the usual, everyday story submittal to a homework or in-class assignment on which it's usually okay to ask for help or get a second set of eyes to look it over - hence, an editor would be no issue. A competition, on the other hand, is more comparable to taking a test, where you rely on what you know and your own abilities to try to do well. In most cases getting help or answers from others when taking a test (the SAT's spring to mind) is considered cheating. I can even remember a recent contest winner thanking such a pair of eyes in a sort of postscript within the winning entry itself. Surely every judge saw that and didn't find it objectionable. It's actually something that just became a subject of discussion in the past few days, so of course it does not apply retroactively. In part it arises because it seems more and more authors are using editors (or at least more are acknowledging them) which is a great thing for most stories, but not in the spirit of a one-on-one competition. As far as Burquette's win, there are a handful of Lush authors, including her, who can most certainly write lights-out, excellent stories without any help at all. I'm always sort of glad when they have mercy on those of us that are mere mortals and don't enter every time! <img src="/forum/images/emoticons/my2cents.gif" alt="My 2 cents">
What about spellchecker? Or would that be more like Jimmy Carter's "lust in my heart" but not actual physical adultery?Joking aside, and going back to the original question, the blanket prohibition against any "help" seems overly broad. Surely there is a difference between a friendly set of eyes and collaboration. I can even remember a recent contest winner thanking such a pair of eyes in a sort of postscript within the winning entry itself. Surely every judge saw that and didn't find it objectionable. I rarely have anyone look at anything I write beforehand because I'm a bit of a curmudgeon. I don't have a dog in this fight as I don't have a contest entry nor will I. And going back to my not entirely facetious question... spellcheck and grammar checkers would seem to provide an unfair advantage against authors not using them. I trust those are prohibited as well? A spell check or grammar check program is perfectly acceptable - in fact, we encourage you to use them. They are readily available to all (unlike good human editors, which are rare) and it is the author's choice whether to use them or not. The problem with a human editor is that not everyone can find one, and all are different; some might do a simple spell check while others will substantially rewrite significant parts of the story. This invalidates the concept that a competition entry should be representative of your own work, ideas, and abilities.
Also not a wide enough sample group to be sure, but I suspect that girls who honestly enjoy giving blowjobs give the best blowjobs. At least that has logic behind it, although there is also a certain logic to the idea that larger, more voluptuous girls are more open to sybaritic, sensual pleasures such as good food and, perhaps, oral sex.<img src="/forum/images/emoticons/dontknow.gif" alt="dontknow"> <img src="/forum/images/emoticons/my2cents.gif" alt="My 2 cents">

A sexy young girl was masturbating ...To someone she was contemplating She got slippery wet
My mind was a thousand miles away, avoiding all thoughts of the boring day of work ahead. I’d taken old Route 57 because it was slower and sparsely traveled, and I wanted time to think about my life; I needed to make some changes, get out of this rut I was in. Distracted, I didn’t see her until she stepped out in front of me, arm extended, thumb up. I nearly ran her down, swerving at the...

The next morning, Wednesday, dawned bright and clear. Both of us were well rested, our sleep sound after our vigorous lovemaking of the previous evening. Allison joined me in the shower and we touched, teased and talked as we cleaned up. It quickly became apparent that she was looking forward to her day, far more enthused about her modeling than I was about another mundane day of...

I caught the eight-thirty, three hours later than my usual. The trains run every thirty minutes, and I’d been trying for the eight o’clock but missed it by three minutes; it had been that kind of day. Boring meetings that ran too long, cantankerous clients, computer glitches, grouchy staff – and I’d destroyed a brand new pair of hose, snagging them on a rough spot beneath the conference...

She pushed back against my face, crying out with the power of her orgasm, and I grasped her hips and pulled her to me, holding her to my lips as I pushed my tongue into her. The tip of my nose was grinding into the tiny pucker of her rosebud, but she didn’t seem to mind. I began to run my tongue up and down her wet cleft, between those soft inner lips, lapping up her sweet, copious honey. ...

I’ve been told that I’m a wonderful lover. I don’t know if that’s true or not, and I laugh when I say it because it sounds so incredibly arrogant and egotistical, but to the extent that it may be true I owe it all to her, and to that summer all those years ago. I’d turned seventeen that April and planned to get a summer job when school let out. My father insisted, saying that the...

I sat on one side of the small rectangular table, she and Ray on the other, with Kaitlyn directly across from me. The steaks were perfect, mine rare as requested, and the side dishes and Cabernet I’d brought hit all the right notes. Partway through the meal, I felt Kaity’s bare foot touch my boot and then begin a slow journey up my calf and thigh until she found the soft bulge of my balls and...

I hadn’t seen Kaitlyn in close to six years. We hadn’t stayed in touch after we went our separate ways. We’d made a clean break, both agreeing that it was the only way, that it was for the best. Although I’d missed her terribly for awhile, missed the wild sex, the parties and excitement, the spark she added to my life, I’d forced myself to think about her less and less the last few...

I’d interviewed for my new job just over a week ago. At the time, I’d assumed that it was probably one of the strangest days I would ever have in my life, but I was hired and that’s what mattered. I really needed the job. I just completed my first week on the job, and it turns out that my assumption regarding the peculiarity of my interview day proved to be premature… and completely wrong. ...

I felt my right nut slip from Stella's lips as she released it and moved to the left, suctioning that one in for the same tongue bath she’d just completed on the right one. Her hand continued to slide up and down my hard shaft, stroking my full length with an extra twist applied to the swollen head of my cock each time her hand enclosed it. Her expert ball-sucking combined with her small,...

We love each other and are happy together, but we’re also very honest and open with each other and we’d decided that we wanted more. More excitement, more adventure, more boldness, more… something. Anything. Maybe just more openness and honesty and a chance to explore and satisfy our curiosity. We’d married late, both thirty years old, and at forty-one we remained best friends as well...

We talked about our experience at the gloryhole most of the night, whenever we weren’t making love, and again over breakfast. I couldn’t get over how much I had enjoyed playing with another man’s cock and sucking him until he came in my mouth and all over my breasts. I’d been very hesitant when Ted suggested it, but had found it incredibly exciting. I also couldn’t believe how much Ted...
