It has been a couple weeks of pretty out there stories to choose from for my latest Sex Stories We Love on Kinkly.We’ve got a woman doing cam shows in public libraries, lube regulation, butts and spine curves, outlawing queer conversion, plant sex, and the question of naming abuse on Fetlife.
It is time for another Sex Stories We Love on Kinkly! Lots of wild stories this week including some info on infidelity, a place where sex ed might become illegal, one person’s true-life Transparent story, dommes on the daily grind, Google backs down and the how revenge porn king Craig Brittain continues to prove himself an true asshole.
I really enjoyed writing this piece Shot In the Dark: Is It Time to Move on From the ‘Money Shot’? What people think of exterior orgasms is pretty fascinating. Thanks to Jennfer and Caitlyn!
This particular Sex Stories We Love for Kinkly was a lot of fun to write. These stories are pretty positive and celebrate good, silly, awesome things about sex. Sure, it is, unfortunately, easy to find difficult stories—because there are many. But let’s enjoy these!
Writing about sex—particularly sex in the news—just feels so damn right. It really is what I wish I could do all time! Fortunately, I’ve got my little slice of the pie over at Kinkly—and here it is!
My latest Sex Stories We Love dips into frotteurism, dlido cleaning gone wrong, condoms in erotica, strip club commandments, the sexiness of creativity and bipolar disorder in relationships.
I spend a lot of time reading about sex, but writing my bi-weekly column Sex Stories We Love for Kinkly (shared with the amazing Bobbie Morgan) has given me an entirely new perspective on what sex news is. I mean, I collect sex news every week to share, but when it comes down to picking just a handful of items to discuss in the column, I have a really hard time! Sex news is everywhere. Sex in everywhere. Sex opinion and education and discussion is everywhere. And that is awesome!
I’m so happy this article has come out on Kinkly! Cosplay is such a fun topic to research, and bridges my interests in nerdy culture that I explore on another project, Flock of Nerds, and sex and sexuality.
Check it out!

How far would you go for the romance of a lifetime? Would you risk your family relationships? Would you risk your eternal soul? Janine Ashbless wraps these themes in Cover Him with Darkness—a thrilling erotic tale where good and evil battle for true love.
I chatted with Janine about her latest trip into fantasy erotica, a genre she expands with romantic adventures of swords ‘n’ sandals, contemporary paranormal, fairytale stories based on mythology and folklore.
What is the overwhelming allure of angels in our mythology?
I think that in the westernized romantic mythology, angels take the same role as the gods used to in the pre-Christian sexual imagination. They are something greater than human, more beautiful and more powerful and “purer”, that come to earth to sweep up us mortals in ecstasy. Isn’t that the ultimate fantasy lover? It’s just Gabriel now instead of Zeus.
Are they necessarily erotic?
Good question. There’s a tension between, say, angels in academic theology, and angels in art and contemporary romance. The former are not usually depicted as sexual beings (though in Genesis Chapter 6 the ”sons of God” come down and take wives from amongst humans). But it’s human nature, isn’t it: the moment we started depicting them in art we made them handsome paragons of men. It’s then absolutely inevitable that we romanticize and sexualize that. We are sexual creatures by nature, after all.
Did you fear backlash from people who would object to eroticizing angels?
There may be some backlash to what I’ve written in Cover Him with Darkness, but believe me—there’s stuff in there that’s likely to offend religious literalists far more than the erotic content.
Are there other paranormal/fantastic theme you are looking to explore?
I’ve covered a LOT of paranormal themes already in my erotica: fairies, ghosts, minotaurs, werewolves, vampires, gods of several different mythologies… I’m happy to revisit any of these if inspiration strikes. Or have I missed something obvious out? Hmmm….
What can we look forward to from you in the future?
Well, there’ll be the sequels to Cover Him with Darkness, I very much hope! And I’m writing a quartet of modern-day magical/pagan erotic novellas for Ellora’s Cave – Summer Seduction is out already, and others will follow.
