This March I'll be will be participating in Eroticon. Initial thought was I'd be too much of a newbie to attend (I've only been sex blogging for just over a year), but then I read Candy's write-up of how useful the various workshops were and how inspired she felt. I thought it over, already the twitter community has helped me grow with suggestions about meme participation and listings, so I decided - I've gotta do this!

NAME (and Twitter if you have one)
Posy Churchgate @posychurchgate (Twitter)
What are you most looking forward to about Eroticon 2018?
All of it!! Maybe a bias to the social side!  I can't wait to meet several people whose blogs I am a fan of, who already feel like friends because of the tweets we share, so putting a face to their on-line 'voice' will be great.  But - I am looking forward to learning ways to improve doing what I love, with high hopes of generating an income from it (so shall be taking notes like a swat!)
We are creating a play list of songs for the Friday Night Meet and Greet. Nominate one song that you would like us to add to the play list and tell us why you picked that song
High Voltage by Electric Six.  
It's a quirky one, but an anthem which celebrates powerful sexual urges and attraction, something I often strive to convey in the erotica I write.  I suggest it could be the 'walk on' music for many of the fabulous, larger than life bloggers I've interviewed  within our community - you know who you are!  And finally because the video is so kitsch and OTT!
An alternative tune would be Filthy/Gorgeous by Scissor Sisters.  Shameless words about loving yourself, whatever your life choices and a live-wire of a video!
What’s the first career you dreamed of having as a kid?
Writer - I always dreamed of being an author or journalist, and still do!  I'm the child of a writer/reviewer so it seemed quite possible!  I had a toy typewriter, I filled little books with half finished stories (which I illustrated). I wrote a school play and a magazine published my poetry.  I learned typing and shorthand, went to creative writing classes then I started a blog, discovered erotic short stories ... and here I am!
Weirdest place you’ve ever gotten up to mischief (define ‘mischief’ however you like…)
Most of my mischief took place in the backseats of cars, and a van lined with blankets.
Tell us two truths and a lie about yourself
I have appeared naked on television 
I'm trained in reiki
I have a photographic memory
Complete the sentence: I want..
everyone I love to have good health and great friends.





Now that you’ve gotten to know me, why not head here to meet the other attendees?

  1. Pleasure to meet you Posy. I wouldn't worry about being a newbie. Most of us are and the environment is so supporting that you'll feel right at home. I know I did. Come say hello.

  2. Ohhh your 'I want' sentence is lovely, I want that too <3 I am also going to shamelessly add both of your tunes to the playlist so you get two of 'em =) I can't guess what the lie is for your two truths but... I really want the thing about being naked on television to be true, because that is super badass. In fact, the photographic memory one is incredibly badass too, so by a process of elimination at least one of those is true and you are a total badass either way.

    Looking forward to seeing you at Eroticon! x

  3. I am SO glad you decided to take the plunge and come to Eroticon this year. I really believe that if you are in your first 5 minutes of blogging or you have been doing for 10 years it is an event for you. I hope that you will find I am right (fingers crossed but never legs)

  5. I’m looking forward to meeting you at Eroticon Posy! Love your answers above. I can also do shorthand - did you do Teeline or Pitman?

    Now, your truths and lie - I’m guessing no 3 is a lie?

  6. I love it, I was convinced to attend Eroticon by Candysnatch's post on Eroticon 2017 as well. It will be so exciting to meet you! I have no idea what your lie is...

    1. Candy is a bit of a legend, powered by unicorns and positive thinking I imagine! Yes I'm dying to meet and gossip with you too ... I'll reveal the lie then!

  8. I used to love Filthy/Gorgeous! I hope they play that one too! I love seeing that your childhood dream career was to be a writer, so lovely that it hasn't changed. Hopefully I will get the chance to say hello at Eroticon.

  9. I look forward to meeting you next week!
    And, I think the lie is the naked on television bit, but somehow I would love it if I'm wrong ;)

  11. I'm no good at spotting a lie...photographic memory perhaps? If it is anything like last year, you won't feel like a newbie after the Friday night. Allie :-)
