Hello my Dark Darlings, I have only a few links to share with you this week, as I've been more than a little pre-occupied with holiday preparations, but here's what I've been reading, listening to and appreciating.
After that I'm sharing an interview with the erudite Victoria Blisse who I've only been getting to know in recent months, since I met her at Eroticon. Now, following her BDSM journey through her blog, I'm not only fascinated but am being educated as to the motivation behind a masochists pursuit of pleasure.
- What made you decide to write a sex blog?
I have been blogging for years but mostly promo for my books. A couple of years ago at Eroticon I was talking to Molly Moore and KD Grace about book promo and how boring it can be and had a bit of an epiphany. From then on I stopped writing book promotion and turned my blog exclusively into a place for sex blogging. I still sell as many books as I used to, which says a lot really and I have much more fun updating my blog now!
- What’s behind the title of your blog or your blogging “name”?
Victoria Blisse is my pen name and although I thought of taking on another nom de plume for my kink activities, I decided just to put it all out there. I’m lucky, in that my friends and family are very supportive and non-judgemental. So I can just let it all hang out. Oo er.
- Describe your blog in a nutshell:
*Climbs into a nutshell* So my blog is a hub for all things Blisse. You can find all my erotica, information on my role as Reverend to the kinky (yes, really), all my various posts and also links to all the fun stuff I do with Smut.UK
- How long have you been blogging on this theme?
Well, I’ve been blogging specifically on my kinky/BDSM journey for the past 2 years. Before that I was more about my erotica (most of which has a BDSM theme) with the odd post about my own life.
- What is your favourite type of adult toy?
Hitty things. I know that’s a cop out but I love so many of them. I have a special place in my heart for whips but I also love canes and paddles and...well yes, all the hitty things. I’m a masochist, so will take pain over pleasure 9 times out of 10!
- If you were sent to a desert island (with no power issues) name the 1 adult toy you’d take with you:
Hmmm, hitty things really need other people to wield them to be truly effective. So what would I take? I know, a set of cups. Cupping is fun, it hurts, leaves pretty marks and I can do it to myself!
- What’s your current sexuality? At what age did you realise this was the right ‘fit’ for you?
I’m pretty certain I’m straight. I’ve never felt attracted to women in any way. Yes, I appreciate their beauty, I can see them as sexy and I will happily be beaten by any domme but nope, only guys get my motor running. Who knows what the future will bring though?
- What’s your preference - naked or “dressed up” for sex? If dressed up, how so?
Naked is good for sex. I don’t mind sex whilst mostly dressed, or sex whilst wearing pretty lingerie but naked, rolling around, sexing is the best. I love being naked.
- Is there a kink or fantasy you’re yearning to try?
Oh, wow. There’s probably a list! At the moment I find myself pondering orgasm control a fair bit. I’d love to give that a go.
- Name the fictional being or species you’d most like to have an encounter with:
Vampire. I am a scaredy cat and tend to hate stuff with horror overtones, but I have always been fascinated with vampires. I’ve written a whole series -Point Vamp- about my version of vampires. I’d love to walk into The Point and meet my vampire characters!
- Anal sex - Meh or Yay?
I kinda find it hot as a now and then kinda activity. It’s a special kind of hot, hard and dirty sex.
- Sex needn’t always be serious - do you have a funny moment to share?
Oh, sex is often funny. I mean bits sometimes don’t fit in places and legs cramp at the most unfortunate of times...but it’s all part of the intimacy.
- Sexting - love it or hate it?
I am a big fan of written sexiness in all its forms, I’m not a fan of text speak though, so please spell each word or I’m not going to get turned on at all. I’ll be correcting the spelling. I mean, it’s not like ‘you’ takes that long to spell out, really.
- Which mainstream film depicts your favourite erotic scene?
What I didn’t realise, until recently, was that my favourite scene from Flash Gordon involves lots of whip cracking. I always wondered why I liked such a violent scene but now I know. I love being whipped! That might not be everyone’s idea of erotic though…
At the other end of the scale, the demonstration of a ‘church kiss’ in The Wedding Singer is pretty damn sexy. I love kisses. They’re so erotic.
- Do you watch porn?
Every now and then. I tend to prefer the written word or my own imagination.
- Nominate your favourite adult film:
I really don’t think I have one :/
- Before you go, please tell us 1 adult blog (aside from yours) which we must add to our reading list:
Oh, if you’ve not checked out Girl on The Net yet, you certainly should. Her writing is incredibly thought provoking and/or hot. Amazing work.
Thank you so much for sharing your more ‘private’ side with me and my Dark Darlings! Victoria Blisse can be found on Twitter and her blog, or get familiar with her books.
