The Mighty Pube Debate - To Have Hair or Go Bare

“The most horrifying thing is pubic hair on a woman,” Muz says. “It’s really quite frightening to the general public.” - Julie Atlas Muz, Burlesque Performer. 

I've also heard her say it as in, it's horrifying to Americans, suggesting the male population that is now so used to slick clean vajay as portrayed in media and porn. She tours around the globe, and many other countries see nothing wrong with it. Now, let me tell you, she has a full on bush. I've seen it. It's one of her trademarks in the scene, and her acts. She's done a puppet show with it, and has named it Mr.  Pussy. =D 

Here's the thing, I have this love/hate relationship with pubic hair, in general. A few of my friends have had a discussion with me about my love and enamourment of the 70's Power Muff, the Disco Dick Mitten. I mean, let's face it, a majority of us sported that Power Puff through the 80's. It was common. 
I have a character that I had even planned on having one, and the comedic banter involved, but many people get turned off by the thought.
But now, I'm wondering if it's making a comeback. If you watch Orange is the New Black, there was that whole bit about the pubic braiding. 

What about glitter in it?  The Coifed Cunt?

And a new article from Kinkly just popped up called In Defense of Pubic Hair

My mission

I found that I often get asked in blog interviews or just through messages what it is that I hope to convey in my writing to my readers. Now granted, we know I write erotic romance. Many people would wonder if there is even a story line much less a message in those novels.  Well, I'm here to tell you that there is, at least in my books.

It's taken me almost three years to come up with an answer that I think rings true, and here it is:

I find that I take people's issues, that can be yours or mine, propelling the reader on a journey of self-exploration and perhaps healing. I have a gola to hopefully make people consider other thought patterns about live, love, sexuality. I would love to tear down the shame and guilt that many feel for their desired life. I believe if it's not hurting anyone else, and both people consent, what is done between those people in love is not wrong and they should not feel shame for their acts with each other.

Body Paint, Buff Dudes, and Book Signing

This past weekend I participated in my very first book signing:
Naturally Naughty In NOLA.
I have to tell you that it was the best time ever!
My only regret is not getting to meet all of the other authors or partake of the before and after parties.
Next time, I will not tell family I am there, hahaha!
I was unable to interact much at set up because this was happening!
That's right! I got body painted from the waist up body the reknown Angela Rene Roberts from Season One of Skin Wars!
I showed up like this:
and was transformed. I did the whole four hour event topless...
Hey, you know me.

Angela's husband, Cully Firmin, was the male model. He was a brave soul and went bare ass, and front too! Here we are toward the end of the signing.
I met so many wonderful people, authors, bloggers, readers, male cover models!
Check out
Alfie Gordillo
and Dusty Griffin
Two of the sweetest hunks of men you will ever get the pleasure of meeting!

This is my newest companion, Slick the Fox.
He has been bombing my Instagram with his cute self, and even attended the event with me.
He stayed and watched my table all day. 
Be prepared to see Slick and my adventures

Live!! New Release!! Erotica!

SURPRISE! I wasn't anticipating it going through for a few days!(¸.•´ (¸.• LIVE!!! *** LIVE!!! •´¸.•*´¨) ¸.•*¨) ***. LIVE!!!•´¸.•*´¨) ¸.•*¨)Illusions – Perchance to Dream Book Two By Jen Lassalle Edwards 

“Reality is merely an illusion, albeit a very persistent one.” -Albert Einstein
The truth can shatter our illusions, but what is truth? Often times, one person’s truth is another person’s lie.
Luella Parker doesn’t know what is real anymore after Fletcher Stevens betrays her trust, and crushes her heart. Arthur Ross is there to help her pick up the pieces, teaching her that each person’s reality is their own, and theirs alone to create. With his help, Luella pursues a dream that can become a concrete actuality – that has nothing to do with her heart.
Luella learns to look at her perception of life in a new way, living in the present moment, and she comes to see that there is more to truths than meets the eye.

Bedroom Recreation - Thigh Restraints

This one is very similar to the one we have.
It is padded around the neck and thigh portion. 
The straps adjust to pull the legs closer to the shoulders.
This allows for deeper penetration, and of course, forced exposure for any pleasure or pain being induced by your partner.
I have to say it is more comfortable than it looks and keeps you in a position that would hard to manage for long periods of time on your own, especially if you arms are also bound. It allows you to relax your body and forget about having to keep yourself in a certain position. And that means, getting to go into the flow of play and not worrying about losing your expected stance. 

I did find out you are still able to close your legs to a certain degree - you know when you're at the point of stop but don't?! But this could also be because I am very short, so the straps only adjust so far, and we did not try to poke extra holes to manipulate my legs more.

Depending how long your sessions are, do expect to find some after effects. Much like when your foot may fall asleep, legs could be a little numb and then have that tingly sensation in the joint area between your hip and thigh. 

You can find these for pretty reasonable prices, especially on Amazon. I'm not sure where ours came from, as you know, they are usually bought and sprung on me. 
As I searched, I did find them ranging from between the $16 and $40 dollar range.
(One link is above)
So it's totally a fun item for a smaller cost!

Giving Back: Thoughts & Ideas

I would like your input. I am thinking of trying something - giving back if you will. I have received quite a few messages from women who have read Ripped & Twisted over the past few years, telling me how they related so much to Faith's situation with domestic violence that she escaped from. It got me thinking, and I will pick a month, maybe next month or June (probably June because May is pretty slammed & it will give me more time to plan promotion.) During that month, half of the proceeds from sales of Ripped & Twisted will go to a charity/nonprofit for those who are victims of domestic violence. I have been reviewing many, but it's overwhelming. If you have any recommendations of groups that are stellar in helping victims, please list them below. Please list them below. If you see one that you are for, like the comment, just to keep it from being too repetitive. Afterwards, I will create a poll to vote for the top groups. Then, I will plan the month and we can promote it. Does that sound good?

No Shame, Love Yourself, Even the Parts You Hide - But Shouldn't Have To

I have been thinking a ton about self-love.
No, I'm not talking about masturbation, but I'm the first one to say YES! to it.
I'm talking about being in love with our own self and being perfectly happy about what you enjoy.
And even being proud of who we are, all of it.

It's a shame that sexuality, sex, and kink have become this thing that we are supposed to be ashamed about enjoying. We're deemed deviants, perverts, and other names that have a usually negative connotation about them. Certain acts are STILL considered taboo.
Can you tell me how wanting to dress up as Sasquatch with a pink dildo hooked to your head while your partner throws pies at you makes you a bad person?
Why is a woman who embraces her sexuality, and love of sex, considered a slut?

I guarantee you I've met people who may enjoy being pegged, have a poly relationship, or enjoy having every hole filled by human or inanimate object who are wonderful, giving, altruistic people and lead totally normal lives to the outside world.

Now, if your boss found out that you liked to wear a fox tail, paws, and furry mask while being plowed thoroughly by your guy while he's dressed as hunter, they would have a completely different view of you. How does what you do in your bedroom, or dungeon, affect your work, especially if they considered you a stellar employee before they found out?

Want to put your guy in a cock cage for three days? If he's down, hell yes, do it.
Want to roll around in a kiddie pool full of jello? Have fun!
Why if some find out a woman enjoys giving up control in the bedroom, being tied, up or dominated are told they should get their Feminism card vetoed?

Think about it. Some acts have been around since Roman times, yet somehow, STILL are not accepted as okay. 

I'm a proud kinkster.
It's part of the reason that I decided to write erotica and share on this blog.
There is nothing wrong with enjoying sex, kink, BDSM, sploshing, dressing up in furry costumes, whatever!
The openness and trust between partners to be able to voice their wants and desires is simply beautiful. There is more intimacy in confiding in your partner that you like butt stuff and know they will not judge you than just throwing on some name brand lingerie and hinting at wanting sex.
(Which I love lingerie too.)
Hell, if you told your guy you want to try and are turned on by butt stuff, he'll probably do back flips!

It saddens me that in this day and age, people have to hide and be ashamed of their desires and enjoyments for fear of losing jobs, family, and friends...or be considered immoral just because they want to try some different things in the bedroom.
How did the free love, everything goes attitude end so abruptly?
I know. I know. Technically, we don't have to go into the history and socio-economic papers and studies. It's a rhetorical question.

I'm here to tell you to embrace it. If you are going to love all of yourself, love your pervy, kink, sexual side too. It's part of you.
If you read or see something that intrigues you, don't be afraid to show your partner.
Experiment. Watch videos.
If it's between you and your partner, you agree on it, it's consensual and safe,
