Review of Erotic Short: Ligne Claire by Riccardo Berra

http://erotica-readers.com/GD/S/Ligne_Claire.htm

There are different sorts of erotica out there, some of more literary than others.  In most of my reading, I'm more of a genre girl than a literary girl.

But I stumbled across this story today, and it captivated me.  Not as much for the erotic factors at play here.  I think I was way more entranced with it because of the main character and the choices she makes.  There's a decidely delicious, twisted revenge here...

The character draws me.  A middle-aged woman, ignored by her husband, who's having an affair.  A non-existance sex life of her own.  A teenaged child who drives her slightly batty.  Hell, this woman could be MANY RL women I know.

She begins an affair of her own.  Again, sort of standard.  But it's what happens after the affair has been going on for a while that takes a twisted turn.

Kudos to Riccardo Berra for creating a well-drawn "every woman" who turns out to be...delightfully twisted in her revenge.  In overcoming her boring, dreary existance...

In taking her life back into her own hands.

Well done.  5 Scoops of Ice Cream for this one.

...it's in demand!

Sex is like ice cream...it's in demand!

And that demand means that the newest technologies, etc. are always used on the sex front first.

I mean, the VCR revolutionized porn viewing. And we all know what the internet has done for porn.

As soon as I saw the previews for the Kinect "interactive feature" for the XBox, my mind immediately went to "dirty places."  And I wondered how long it would take for there to be virtual sex.

Uh, huh.  I really have to start listening to my imagination.  Because the first sex application for Kinect has arrived.  Check out this article:

Here's another article:

Now, I went to You Tube and I watched a demo of this game.  You can also find the demo video at the second article. Let me just say, not impressed so far.  Bascially it allows you to use your hand to move a disembodied hand around a girl's body.  Yeah, not so much with the stimulation/titilation there.  Actually, I found it sort of disturbing.  What's a turn on about a disembodied hand floating around, appearing to stroke boobs and stuff?  Maybe a prepubescent boy might get a kick out of it..



So it appears there's still a lot of untapped potential here.

What do you think? Does it seem that most technology gets "corrupted" quickly? Do you foresee a surge in these types of "games" for the XBox?  And will MS allow it?  I'm not sure if they have to approval all released games for the XBox or not.

...it's okay to indulge in it alone!

Sex is like ice cream...it's okay to indulge in it alone!

I mean, sure, it's great to share it with someone special.  But hey -- YOU'RE special, right?

And you know that "they" say about masturbation, right?  It's sex with someone you love!  At least, I sure hope that's the case!

Masturbation is a natural thing.  We all do it.  How can you tell if someone is lying to you about masturbation? If they say they NEVER...rest assured, they're more than likely fibbing about it.

And that's because we're taught (well...an unfortunate too many of us are taught) that it's a shameful, dirty thing.

It's not.  You're not going to get hairy palms, or be struck by lightening. (Although I suppose if you're masturbating outside, during a thunder storm, and you're holding a metal object or near something tall, you might be courting danger.)

It's also important that you know how to pleasure yourself.  After all, how can you expect a partner to do what you can't do yourself?  Or don't understand what your body likes?  You can't communicate your preferences if you have no idea what they are.

The FoxNews article I linked in my last post mentioned that the sex myth: "If you don't have a partner, there's no point in having a libido."  To which I say, poppycock. (G)

As always, balance is important.  You don't want your activities interfering with your work, or interfering with a relationship you DO have.  (If you spend so much time pleasuring yourself that you're not interesed in engaging in sexual activities with your partner, then...that's not a good thing.)

But orgasm is good for the body.  Good for the brain.  Good for the mood.

So next time you find yourself in the mood for a little ice cream, and there's no one around to share it with...go ahead.  Indulge by yourself.

Blowing Sex myths out of the water

Here's an article on FoxNews about common sex myths.  http://www.foxnews.com/health/2010/12/08/sex-myths-need-know/?test=faces

The very first one is that interest in sex decreases with menopause.  Fox's expert says that's not the case -- as do a lot of women I know personally.  In fact, one friend of mine said that after being "forced" into menopause by a hysterectomy, her sex life is the best it's ever been.

I'm actually sort of surprised at some of the myths.  Especially "Your most important sex organs are 'south of the border.'"  Really?  I thought most people understood that sex, arousal, orgasm...all have a very strong BRAIN component.

One of the myths is something I actually planned to address in my next actual blog post.  Having some Internet connection issues, so not sure when I'll get that posted.

I'm posting THIS from Chick-Fil-A, where I'm happily having lunch.

Any surprises on the myth list for you?

...I love them both!

Hi!  Welcome to my blog, Sex is Like Ice Cream.

What do you mean, you never thought of sex like that?  Well, I hope to enlighten you about how it might be the same.  And different.

My name is Sassy Boudoir.  Okay, not really.  I'd hope no parent would actually put a name like that on a birth certificate, but hey, one never knows.  I am actually aka Sassy Boudoir.  I mean, jobs must be protected. They're hard to come by these days. Besides, my real name is boring.  Sassy Boudoir sounds like someone who would not only talk about sex, but make it fun and interesting.  And that's my hope.

She also sounds like someone who would freely admit to loving both ice cream AND sex.

There's nothing wrong with liking sex.  Loving sex.  Sex is a natural thing.  God made it pleasurable for a reason.  And we're going to talk about pleasure (or even the lack thereof) here.

So, once again, welcome.  I'm only just getting started.  Consider this post to be initial foreplay.  (Maybe not even that.  Maybe this is just getting a phone number.  Or deciding if we want to slip off to a dark corner for some fun.)
