I am impatient. I am waiting for something and I don't know what. Killing time. Sucking on a wet cloth, opening my mouth but nothing comes out.
There's something I forgot to say, or shouldn't have said, or didn't have the courage to state plainly.
At times like this, when the words are just piling up in my head but not making it to my fingers, I'm so grateful to get gifts. Tea and cigarettes from my mother. A postcard from an old friend.
Alison Tyler's wonderful new book Never Have The Same Sex Twice.
This book is a gift, without a doubt. Woven throughout with fabulous stories, snippets and scenes from favourite writers, each chapter explores ways to keep the sex fresh in a monogamous relationship. Alison 'wanted to write a guide that would turn people on while they were reading'. And it does. There are layers of sex and love and ideas here, some sweet, some shocking and some playful.
A good gift, I think, reminds you of what you have as well as sparking your dreams of what is possible. With contributions from - oh boy, so many great erotica writers, plus Alison's own sassy, sexy writing, I'm sooooo looking forward to reading (and sharing) this one with boyf.
