This review will be a bit different than the reviews I’ve done in the past. Rather than reviewing one story, I’ll actually be reviewing four! From author, Daniele Light, comes a volume of some of her best erotic stories bundled up into one extra-long read. And boy, there’s really only one way to describe her work: absolute literary porn! Mrs. Light is best known for writing steamy stories about BMAW(black men, Asian women).
Erotic Hypnosis is already an incredibly popular sub-genre of both written erotica, and porn, which entails one character or actor being hypnotized by another for the purposes of turning them into an obedient sexual partner. In recent years, it’s been gradually introduced into the BDSM community as a new extension of D/s practices. For hypnosubs(if I can call them that) it creates an entirely new opportunity to show vulnerability to their dommes by surrendering control of their mind itself. What follows can vary anywhere from roleplay in the form of guided mind journeys, to full-on mentally-induced orgasms. Others have used the practice to also condition their partners to overcome certain fears or mindsets when it comes to sex.
I want to take this moment to say, first off, that all of you who follow me, signed up for my email list, speak to me on social media, sent me story requests, or just regularly stop by to read what I have; you guys are some of my favorite people. It’s because of you guys that I’m motivated to keep doing what I do here on Forbidden Writings, despite what pitfalls I’ve had in my life this past year. When I started this site on Wordpress more than two years ago, I didn’t think I’d still be doing it today. I was almost positive this would just become another blog that disappeared when I realized no one would want to read it. Was I ever so wrong.
Current trends in the genre of erotica have shown a growing appreciation of a horror aspect to sex and sexuality. Between works of written erotica, and the porn industry, horror seems to be making an unexpected rise in popularity. Capitalizing on this idea is indie author, Laila Faire, who has crafted a number of horror erotica novellas, including “Carnival of Sin”. This was actually the first work of horror erotica I’ve ever read, and I must say, I was pleasantly surprised. I figure the best thing to do was write down my first impressions, and tell you a bit about the story.
I saw him there again, through the large bedroom window of his home. He often left the blinds open. Probably thinking the tall fence in his backyard would keep prying eyes out of his second-story bedroom. But it doesn’t hide you from the second-story bedroom of the house behind your own. Not that I was intentionally spying on him, mind you.
In recent days, I’ve been seeing quite a few people on Facebook groups and Reddit pages discussing the viability of erotica as a source of substantial income. Since the craze ran during 2015-2016, everyone and their mother turned up to lay their stake into that particular oil well. For a while, things were going well. Demand was higher, and supply was much higher, and it had never been a better time to start as an erotica writer.
I first heard about Terri George last week as I was looking through my Twitter. I was eager to find something new to read and later review. Terri George already has several books available, and a good handful of positive reviews under her belt. The cover art, as well as her teaser graphics, are very eye-catching to be sure. She’s clearly been doing this for a while and knows the craft very well.
