Threesome? What Threesome?

Writing group sex is not something I'm new at. My first book included a 40-man orgy. One of my first stories published by ERWA included a bunch of aliens getting it on as the universe came to an end. I've written about all sorts of arrangements from M/M/F to F/M/F/F to F/M/? and even some M/?/F/B/3/!, plus a few things that may not have been invented yet. It's one of the benefits of writing science fiction erotica. The types of partners and arrangements thereof are as infinite as the stars.


I once wrote a story about conjoined twins hitting on someone with multiple personalities. I loved that story.


But in my personal life, I've never indulged in more than one partner at a time. At least not in the bedroom. In my writing though...


It's not a partnership like what some folks here have. There are actually three writers involved in this situation, but we're not writing together, we're podcasting together (yes, that kinky fetish of mine, podcasting, rears it's ugly head even here, but bear with me). Last November, feeling the strain of being a writer on her own, I decided to reach out to a fellow writer for a special project. You see, writing is often a masturbatory experience, where you spend a lot of time by yourself, pounding out your own twisted little fantasies on the computer. But I was getting a little tired of playing by myself, so I got in touch with Nobilis, a fellow podcaster and erotica writer. Since we both already podcast erotic fiction, we decided we wanted to do a podcast on what it's like to be an erotica writer. Nobilis contacted Ann Regentin, and before you knew it, we had a threesome. The Write Threesome!


In some ways, the Write Threesome is much like Oh Get A Grip. We don't write erotica together, but we do sit down once a month and shoot the breeze about what it's like to do what we do. We sort of keep a blog, but it's mostly about getting together via Skype to discuss what's on our minds regarding our favorite genre. It's not sex, but a conversation that usually devolves into an orgy of words and ideas that leaves me mentally buzzing for days. It's the kind of intimacy that can only occur between writers talking about what they love, with the added excitement of exhibitionism thrown in. Everything we discuss gets recorded and sent out to the web for anyone to hear, and the things we say in our talks might surprise you.


So it's not what you would typically think of when thinking of menage, but it is a relationship I haven't had anywhere else, and I'm pleased to share it with you. Checkout the podcast, take a listen, slip into bed and let the three of us whisper naughty thoughts into your ears. I promise, we'll be good. Or we'll be bad. But we won't be boring, because a threesome is never boring. Especially when it's the Write Threesome.



Helen, Nobilis and Ann (erotica makes for strange bedfellows!)

  1. BTW, I fully admit this was shameless self-promotion, but it was also the first thing that sprang to mind when I read "the more the merrier". I could have also blogged about the wonderous experience of being part of OGG, but I figure everyone knows it's a given how good that gig is ;)

  2. Oh, I forgot all about aliens and stuff. I adore good sci fi and when you make your alien sexy, it's even better. *G*

    Great post, Helen, even if it was all self-promo... LOL

    Hugs

  3. You are too kind, Jude. I probably should have stuck to talking about aliens, but I'm a little brain-fried this week (imagine that!), and I just short-circuited when it came time to write my post.

    But yeah, aliens add a whole new dimension to the discussion. How would an alien react to human ideas of sex? Would they be limited to just two sexes, or more? And how would we handle the extra sexes?

    Ah, now I see the blog post I should have written! My bad. Brain-fried, again.
