“True confession consists of telling our deeds in such a way that our soul is changed in the telling of it.”
HAPPY SUMMER! And welcome to my little slice of the internet. This is sort of like my closet, where I let my skeletons roam wild and free, sharing their dirty little (sometimes sexy) secrets with anyone who will listen.
Like many sex-bloggers, I’m a pretty private person in my day-to-day life. I live in a small town and am part of a community (socially and professionally) that would never accept me for the person that I’m allowed to be here.
So, dear readers, I thank you for the opportunity to share, and grow, and create, with you by my side. Just knowing that you are out there, lurking silently or commenting openly, makes me feel connected to you.
I’ve been blogging for years, and this website has gone through many transformations. I began my sex blogging adventures as The Lustful Literate, but recently (2018), I moved to self-hosting. I transferred over my early writing in February 2019. Many of those posts are rough and do not have featured images. I am in the process of “cleaning” the most popular of those up and making them mesh better with the appearance of this new site. So, please be patient with the clutter as I work through all of that.
Just for your information, too, as you wander through my posts, my Husband has been known by several different names in my writing, as we have shifted and changed and modified our roles. You’ll see him called Mr. LL (for Lustful Literate), Mr. D (for Delaney), Sir, and Daddy. Long-term relationships are funny things, and as many of us know, they change over time. Ours has done that with our ups and downs, and I’m sure it will continue to do so.
What do I write about?
Marriage, Sex, and D/s
I write mainly about our marriage and sex life. Now that we are in our 40s, and both of us are seeing our hormones shift a bit, our levels of desire and, as a result, our sex life, are changing. I want to continue exploring how age affects our sexual relationship and our erotic connection. We are also dipping our toes back into D/s, and I write pretty consistently about that journey. Check out my 30 Days of D/s posts and my “rules.” Honesty is the name of the game here, and I plan to be as honest about our trials and tribulations as possible. I’d expect to see a lot more on this topic over the coming years.
You can also search by category or topic, if there is something specific you’d like to know more about.
Mental Health, Hormones, and Libido
I live my life around the challenges of bipolar disorder and all the complications it brings to my life and marriage – the mania, depression, irritability, anxiety. Fun stuff. Understandably, it makes it way into my writing quite often. I also write about hormones and how they affect my (and my Husband’s) sex drive/libido. I’ve had many difficulties over the years with what is often tagged a “low libido.” My Husband’s has always been high (until just recently, when it plummeted to nearly non-existant). And that can take a toll on a relationship. Learning to navigate those waters is tricky business, and therefore gives me lots to write about.
This year, I’m a jury member for Smut Marathon, so I do write some pretty involved response posts about the writing for the competition. And every once in awhile I post some writing advice or opinion pieces about writing.
I was a contestant in 2018, so you’ll also find some of my work for the competition scattered throughout my erotica.
I just started writing occasional product reviews. Those can be found HERE. I’d love to add lingerie, destinations, and books to this, as well. So, if you have something you would like reviewed, please contact me. I’m not free, but I’d like to think my rates are reasonable and that the review you’ll get will useful.
My main project this year is The Erotic Journal Challenge. This is a weekly journal prompt in which all are invited to participate. Check out my responses to the prompts HERE. And please…get involved!
I write quite a bit of short erotic fiction (which I share here) and just this summer, I’ve begun the Brigit’s Bedtime Stories podcast. I’m going back to the beginning and recording some of my earliest stories first, and I’ll work my way forward. My goal is a new episode each Sunday/Monday.
I’ve handed Sinful Sunday (a weekly photo meme run by Molly Moore) over to my Husband this year. It’s turning out to be an educational experience for both of us.
And, on occasion, I get involved in Lingerie is For Everyone or simply get a wild hair and decide to post an image of myself. The past two years, I’ve also contributed to February PhotoFest. You can find those images beneath “photos” in the navigation menu.
