I want this to be the year I get back to where I was a couple years ago, when writing got me really excited, and the ideas weren't hard to pull from the aether.
It bears repeating that allowing intolerance isn't the same as showing tolerance to all voices. Allowing voices of hate to have their podium only allows intolerance to spread and create an environment not safe for all, but only a few. Having a safe community means having the stones to back it up and defend your values.
Anticipation and delay are often used to heighten sensations or create playful frustration in your partner. Craft a story where someone has to wait for their satisfaction.
Keeping with spooky themes, tell me a story about a chase. It need not be a monster, exactly. How would you imagine a sexy game of cat-and-mouse with spooky themes?
One of my favorite times of the year, when spooky erotica has its time to shine! Let's write some sexy, witchy smut!
Studies have been done showing that mornings are the best time for erotic play. Do you agree? Share with us a story about the things your characters enjoy after waking up on one of those days.

Laid next to someone you care for a lot, arms wrapped around you, fingers intertwined. There are few things that feel better than this moment, and passion overtakes you. You want them immediately, but want to stay this comfortable with them as well. How does your character combine the comfort and passion for their lover?
If I asked you what was your favorite thing about your partner, what would it be? The way they roll up their sleeves on a nice button-up shirt? Their beard? Their butt? Their smile? Your challenge is to write a short story where someone's favorite qualities are celebrated.
With this year's Smutathon event steadily approaching, the committee behind the event is about to open the doors to our first ever Smutathon Slam!! Several weeks ago, we just gotten together on Zoom to celebrate the announcement of the organization we would be supporting this year, Endometriosis UK, as well as opening up for starting donations.
This could mean a lot of things to different people. A source of your desire. Something that makes you hunger as it stimulates your senses. You want to move forward and indulge, but something prevents you. It could be you weren't given permission, it could be a restraint of a physical or mental kind, or even a barrier. Details are up to you, so long as something desired has been denied to your character.
