Welcome to the Challenge! This is a weekly journal prompt activity I’m running in 2019 to help myself explore my own eroticism. Over the past years, I feel like I’ve sort of fallen out of the habit of living an erotic life…or maybe I should just be honest and say, I’ve never really lived a fully erotic life, at least not in the way I’d like to. Getting in deep touch with my own sensuality is something I’ve struggled with. Every so often, I catch a glimpse, and truly get a sense of what it is that turns me on and heats me up. But, it’s like a back warming burner on the stove…easy to forget about, never hot enough, and I’m always just a little afraid to turn it up too high.
Each week, I’m posting a topic or question that I plan to explore in my own journal. I’m inviting others to respond to the challenges, as well, and link up here. I encourage you to respond in whatever way seems most authentic – a journal entry, drawing, photo, video, story, poem…ANYTHING that can be posted on your website. Then, link your post here.
I’ll post the prompts on Saturday each week. The link-up will open sometime on Saturday and remain open until the following Saturday.
I have enough prompts to run the challenge all year! So, gear up for some deep introspection if you plan to participate. I loves me some confessional writing!
Please contact me with questions, comments, or any great prompts you think should be part of the experience.
This week’s prompt/challenge:
Well, dammit…I wish I’d paid attention to the Wicked Wednesday prompts, because I could have lined this one up with Marie’s “Explore” prompt from last week. Whatevs…I’m not known for my fabulous planning. Actually, I am…but that’s beside the point.
This week, for The Erotic Journal Challenge – the topic is “Exploration (and Experimentation)”
What would you like to explore in your sexuality over the next 30 days? Within the next year? Let’s keep it small, focused, and specific. Something you can plan ahead for and measure progress. And in the planning, consider the who, what, where, when, why, and how. Who would you like to explore this with, or is this a solo mission? Is it something taboo, that you are afraid of trying or telling your partner about? Why haven’t you already done it…or if you have, why do want to try it again? How are you going to go about reaching this sexual goal?
I’m not a stickler for rules…I like people to write what feels good to them and share, because all of our stories matter. Take this post/challenge whatever way works for you. Just remember to…

(Remember that I have a free InLinkz account, which means at least one of these link-ups is going to be an ad. I’m sorry about that, but I’m not willing to pay the $8 per month it costs to get rid of it. Also, for some reason, the link-up process seems to be a bit different than the last one…not sure why that is…but whatever.)
