the enjoyment, expression, or pursuit of physical, especially sexual, pleasure.“he ate the grapes with surprising sensuality”
synonyms: sexiness, sexual attractiveness, sultriness, seductiveness
the condition of being pleasing or fulfilling to the senses.“life can dazzle with its sensuality, its color”
We use our senses to experience life (especially our erotic life). Some of us do not have all five, which may mean we find others become heightened. And some of us derive greater or less pleasure in one more than another. Maybe some of us have even experimented with sensory deprivation or overload.
Whatever your sensual situation may be, consider what part your senses play or have played in your erotic life. How might you want to experience them in ways that you haven’t yet? Focus on one or all.
If you’d like to share what you come up with, please link your work below. Also, display the Erotic Journal Challenge badge and link back to this page so that your readers can enjoy what others come up with.
If you don’t want to share, that makes perfect sense, too, as these prompts may lead you to some very private introspection. Maybe you’ll want to just share pieces and parts of what you journal, and that’s great, too.
Bonus/Extension: I read an amazing book years ago called A Natural History of the Senses by Diane Ackerman. It comes to mind now that I am offering this very first Erotic Journal Challenge. It might make a fitting accompaniment to this week’s exploration.
This is my very first link-up, so I hope everything goes smoothly. (I’m looking forward to seeing who will pop my link-up cherry here!) If you have any difficulty adding your link below (it will open at noon Pacific Time on Saturday 1/5/2019), please let me know…and be patient as I learn how to do this and work out any kinks that may arise. I’ll respond to the prompts, as well, and link mine below. New prompts will post on Saturdays, and the link-up for each prompt will close the following Friday in preparation for the following week’s new prompt. This means prompt one will close for link-ups at 11:55 p.m Pacific Time on Friday 1/11/2019).
Also, because I have a free Inlinkz account, I have to put up with the ad support. Link #6 is an ad, if you didn’t figure that out yourself. Go ahead and ignore that one. I’m not willing at this time to spring for $8 per month for this service, so we’re just going to have to put up with the annoying ads in the middle of our sexy smut.
