Bespoke Erotica

Imagine presenting your lover with a piece of erotic fiction (or non-fiction), featuring the two of you?

Forget diamonds, flowers, holidays, lingerie… For birthdays, weddings, anniversaries, Christmas, there is NOTHING that tops this kind of present.

I have serious cred in the erotica space*. If you’ve read a sealed section in a women’s magazine, or a fiction in Playboy over the past 20 years, chances are, I wrote it. I currently work with women to help them rediscover and develop their Erotic ID, and I continually research, experiment and curate erotica.

I am very pleased to announce that I have a limited number of openings available for bespoke erotica commissions leading up to Christmas. I usually reserve this treat for my private clients, but I am feeling particularly loved-up this festive season, and want to spread the good will to all women and men.

How it works

We talk.

I find out what you like and what you want. You are only limited by your imagination.

I go away and write a personalised piece of quality erotica just for you (and illustrate it, if that’s what you desire).

You retain copyright and ownership of the writing and illustration, to do with it what you wish.

Price – POA.

Note: I am currently taking commissions for pieces 500-5000 words only. I will start accepting longer-form commissions again in the new year.

*Oh, so you want to know more?

I began reading, writing and drawing erotica when I was six years old – not long after devouring Anais Nin’s Delta of Venus (I’d run out of kids’ books). I became obsessed with the dark, mysterious, provocative, forbidden, dangerous nature of the world of erotica. I wanted to be Mata Hari when I grew up.

Fast forward decades and I have not lost my interest in the erotic. Alongside a dramatic career in high-end fashion magazines and illustrated books, I pursued erotica as a side career… always wondering how to make it the full-time gig.

I worked as an artist’s model, a burlesque dancer, a dominatrix, a commercial erotica writer… and my interest was not just applied, but also academic – I completed a fine arts/literature degree, majoring in curatorial studies and drawing and handing in a final thesis looking at the line between the naked and the nude in the context of the male gaze at Men’s Gallery, the strip club where I’d been working for years.

Now, I create erotic identities and images for women, specialising in the largely unexplored (yet incredibly powerful) territory of dark branding and building on my personal philosophy and professional practice of the Erotic ID™.

PS: If you are interested in the history and genre of erotica, I strongly encourage you to watch The Erotic Adventures of Anais Nin (UK documentary).

The Art of Erotic Eating

How you do one thing is how you do everything. 

The path from one thing is the path to everything.

How you eat is how you live.

If you want to live an erotic life – and trust me, you do, because your gut instinct is erotic, your eroticism is your existence and the expression of your true self, and only when you are true to yourself does life unfold – you must eat an erotic life.

Perhaps the most erotic quote about food comes thanks to Lawrence Durrell:

“The whole Mediterranean, the sculpture, the palm, the gold beads, the bearded heroes, the wine, the ideas, the ships, the moonlight, the winged gorgons, the bronze men, the philosophers – all of it seems to rise in the sour, pungent taste of these black olives between the teeth. A taste older than meat, older than wine. A taste as old as cold water.” – ‘Prospero’s Cell (1945)

I think about food all day. From the moment I get up, to the moment I go to sleep. And I challenge myself to eat the erotic way…

What does erotic eating look like?

  1. Admit what you want. Not what other people tell you should want.
  2. Be honest about what makes you feel good (what turns you on, inside and out)
  3. Eat when you are hungry.
  4. Eat quality, not quantity
  5. Know what creates comfort and discomfort in your body.
  6. Be curious, bold, break the rules, seek the new and exotic. This is a particularly erotic example… As is this. It is Dita von Teese, after all!
  7. Create more than you consume.
  8. Eat with all your senses. Look for umami,

This is my analogy for how to eat life, and it is the way in which you will want to actually eat when you realise that everything is erotic – and how you eat is how you live.
