It’s finally time that I’m able to share some exciting announcements about the next anthology I’ve been published in! Best Lesbian Erotica of the Year Volume 5 (BLE Vol 5) releases this upcoming December 8, 2020, on Amazon from editor Sinclair Sexsmith and Cleis Press!
My contribution to this year’s volume, “On a Hot and Humid Night“, which will be the second story of the anthology, was actually written exclusively for BLE Vol 5. It kind of serves as a follow-up to”Here Comes the Sun” in 2019’s Best Lesbian Erotica of the Year Volume 4. Both were based upon actual sexual experiences that I had with my spouse, Fal (who’s name is Max in the stories), and our partner at the time, Kate, between 2017 and 2019 (our triad unfortunately came to an end shortly after I submitted the story to Sinclair).
While “Here Comes the Sun” was a short and punchy read, focusing on a very queer affirming late night threesome that involved some great oral sex and the classic “Eiffel tower” position, this year’s contribution of “On a Hot and Humid Night” is much more expansive in it’s depiction of how our dynamic worked as a triad, the role that ethical non-monogamy continued to play within our relationship together, and the excitingly diverse sexual experiences we shared.
The story spans a summer of awesome queer debauchery and group sex from hardcore play in an 80s mansion to a threesome in a darkened public park, all framed by a very intimate look at the lust and affection felt between three very close friends.
Even though our relationship as a triad didn’t last, I’m really very proud of the piece and think back on those experiences fondly. So I hope that you will support the book and enjoy this final erotic tale from Fal (aka Max), Kate, and I!
Here’s the official write-up for BLE Vol 5:
Testing the boundaries of pleasure and pain… To be so full of longing you ache for release… Coming to climax without a single touch.
The fifth volume of the Best Lesbian Erotica of the Year anthology series explores and expands on the very definition of eroticism with a diverse mix of queer, non-binary, trans, and polyamorous #ownvoices that will have you quivering with delight and wondering what more you can explore—no matter how you identify. More than just steamy sex stories, this volume offers the quiet sexuality of emotional security, the overwhelming thrill of discovering something new, and a tale for every taste—from vanilla to kink to strap-ons and sodomy.
Now more than ever, it is crucial to see unique, underrepresented viewpoints across the literary spectrum. Award-winning author and editor Sinclair Sexsmith delivers in an anthology that is both tender and tantalizing, emotional and evocative.
Sinclair has also officially released the full table of contents, which you can see on their blog right now.
