A Blog For Cultivating Your Sensual Self

Posted by on Oct 20, 2011

October 2011 Water droplets still cling to my bare skin as I rush from the shower to the bedroom. I am rummaging through the top drawer of my dresser, tossing aside lacey thongs in the pursuit of something comfy and cotton, when I am suddenly airborne, flying sideways towards the mattress. My lover studies cougars. He’s known to pounce. He nuzzles my neck as a low growl escapes his throat. His kisses begin to descend. I am dripping wet, flat on my back, with a passionate man getting ready to devour me. It’s pretty obvious where this scene is headed. But, no. Because all I can think about is the pitch for my erotic memoir that I plan to deliver to a panel of publishing professionals at the kick-off of the Willamette Writer’s conference.

Lately, I repeatedly forego the lace thong and curve-hugging, batik yoga pants for the cotton Hanes and shapeless worn sweat pants. As I drove to the conference, I was so consumed with rehearsing my pitch that I was halfway through the Columbia Gorge before I even noticed the play of sunlight on the river. I need an intervention. And this blog is it. I’ve decided to write my way back to a more sensuous, awakened, passionate way of being. I am going to blog me sexy. Care to join me? I’d love to hear what you have to say, about what I have to say, about staying sexy. So go ahead, give yourself a sexy pen name and unleash your sensual thoughts in the comments sections. Your email address will not be published. I look forward to the...
