This week’s prompt for The Erotic Journal Challenge is:
Body Love (part 2)
Last week, we considered our own bodies in the context of the following questions; this week, consider your lover’s (be it a current, past, or fantasized one).
When you think about your lover’s body, what’s the first word that comes to mind? Are there things about it you love, dislike, could learn to treat better? Has your relationship with your lover’s body changed over your lifetime?
Our bodies tell a story…the story of our mistakes, our accomplishments, our strengths and weaknesses. What tales does your lover’s body have to tell?
The nuts and bolts of the challenge:
Each week, I will post a topic or question that I plan to explore in my own journal. I’m going to post them and add a link-up so that readers can get in on the challenge, too. 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. This is your interpretation, whatever the prompt inspires in you.
I’ll post the prompts sometime on Saturday each week (I like to sleep in, so be patient), and the link-up will remain open until the following Sunday at 11:55 pm (Pacific time). This means you have two weekends and the week to write, so hopefully that will give everyone plenty of time.
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.
Upcoming and past prompts can be viewed on The Erotic Journal Challenge homepage. Our next topic is “Hormones.”
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…

The link-up has been extended to July 10 at 11:55 pm (PST) because of the holiday weekend.
