1) The one you wish more people had seen. I don’t think I’ve written that one yet. And it seems to frequently happen that what the writer has the greatest affection for, the reader seems cold to it. Of the smattering of things I’ve published here, Wren in Love comes closest to being a favorite of mine, and it was only lightly read. B & E is a close second to Wren in Love, and of course it had the least readership of all. See No. 9 below.

2) Character that you've written that you'd most like to spend a night with Wren Vane, from Wren in Love, but mostly because she and I are more similar in tone and tint of mind, and I would enjoy her company outside of the bedroom.

3) Most interesting female character. The female correspondent, A Muse Amused, in Post-Modern Love, Part 1. She may be slightly bitter and lonely, but she’s sharp and acerbic and almost bending toward the philosophical in her erotic pain. There is a part 2, but I haven’t been able to bring myself to submit it yet.

4) Most interesting male character. Bobby and Eric in B & E. When I finished that story, I could imagine writing about one or the both again. It’s not that they’re all that interesting in that story, but I see potential for them. Also, they seem like the only male characters in my posted stories that aren’t flat out dimwits or douchebags.

5) Story whose success surprised you. Haven’t been so lucky to see anything I would remotely call successful.

6) A story you were nervous about posting. All of them.

7) your raunchiest story. I don’t know, they all seem pretty tame considering what’s out there in the wide world. Helping Jan is a story that strikes me as extremely unpleasant in its coldness, a reverse chronology of turning a married but fairly inexperienced woman into a cum slut of sorts. There’s an underlying nastiness to it, and I’m not sure why I wrote it.

8) your sappiest story I don’t think I’ve done anything I would characterize as sappy yet.

9) the one you're proudest of. Definitely B & E. I’d just plowed through a half dozen or more Elmore Leonard novels. That voice and those cadences and that style was filling my head, and I had to do something with it, had to do something with that buzz it gave me. So I tried to write an Elmore Leonard story but with, you know, fucking. It was fun, intercutting all the scenes, trying to keep it snapping along, putting up all the pieces out and then fitting them all together. Of course, it got the fewest views of anything, and no scores or comments.

10) a story you want to mention just because See #9 above. Since we’re self-promoting.

B & E (1st Part)

The man was a little buzzed, but not as much as the two women. They seemed fine in the club, dancing, laughing, talking loudly to hear one another above the music. But when the three of them stepped out into the mild night on the way to the car, they were both a little loopier than he realized, one on either side of him, each clutching an arm and taking small, careful steps, punctuated by...

B & E (Conclusion)

Erik told the man and woman to just be calm, try to relax. They weren’t going to be tied up for very long, especially if they behaved themselves and didn’t make any noise, didn’t start banging around trying to get loose. Erik said that he and Batman were just going to go upstairs and have a quick look around. When they were done, he said, they’d come back, let them go, and they could get on...

Some Girls

There was still plenty of time for the weather to turn cold again, but for now, early spring, the day was wonderfully clement. A soft rain in the morning gave way to a kind of creamy egg sunshine and shirt-sleeve warmth. The sidewalks were busy. The guy found a curbside spot for his car on Alder and walked the two blocks to the girl’s apartment. Her name was Valerie. He met her at the Pet...

Wren in Love

Wren Vane, newly twenty-six, mauve in temperament, removed her soaked cunt from the cock it sheathed and knee-walked up the bed a short pace to position it above the face of the boy who had just, for the second time in less than an hour, emptied himself inside her. He was young. She liked that. “Finish me with your mouth,” she said, toggling his lower lip with her index finger until...

The End of the Affair

The ribbons and dollops of cum decorating her chest and belly leap from the surface of her slick skin and are sucked back into the slit of his ruddy, rigid, pulsing cock. The hot, white cum gathers quickly into a stream above her sweat-sheened flesh and rapidly arrows back into his prick, which he strokes overtop her while making slightly strangled-sounding gasps. The head of his tool bulges,...

Helping Jan

The Last Time We’d just finished having lunch together, a local café in her neighborhood, Friday afternoon. We used to work together several years ago; now we just got together once in a while to catch up. The day was warm for mid-October, and clear, with that wonderful golden light. I was parked around the corner. She lived only a couple blocks away. I used to live in this neighborhood...

Post-Modern Love: Part 1

To: TouchOfGray From: A.M. Subject: Lushstories Feedback Dear Touch, I’m sure you thought there was only a slight chance that you would hear from me again someday. “Slight” is sometimes enough. I have to believe, however, that you never expected to hear from me via this venue, an erotic story Web site, nor that I would somehow stumble across this little trio of stories about us: “Tell Me...

Initial Public Offering

He gets in the passenger seat next to her, almost uncertainly, and as if sensing something, glances out his window around the restaurant parking lot. He wonders if he’s dreaming. He hears the first tentative tink of big summer raindrops on the roof of her van. “So what did you forget to tell me?” he says softly. She unbuckles her seatbelt, slips out from behind the steering wheel,...

“You have to go?” she said. “Eventually,” he said. “We all have to go eventually,” she said. “Yes, well. I won’t be convinced until they put the pennies on my eyes.” “You really would want to live forever?” “It’s the only way I can come up with to avoid dying,” he said. “I don’t know. Maybe living forever would be a bit much. But dying? Ick. I can’t even stand falling asleep. I feel...

Talk To Me

His first and largest jet of cum leapt from the swollen head of his cock and glazed her extended tongue. Still lying on her side, the semen dripped from her tongue to the corner of her mouth, some landing on the bed, as he continued to spurt into her, or wherever she was aiming him. “Fuck, baby…” he whispered, over and over. “Fuck. Fuck.” When he seemed to be finished, she took his cock...
