I mean, eyecandy inspiration? As a frequent luster-of-hot-men, this blog post practically wrote itself.
So, without further ado, I give you my top three hot guys of all time and the stories they have inspired. (Note: The list of hot guys is naturally much, much longer, but I realise you haven't got all week).
1. Jared Padalecki.
My number one, absolutely madly-obsessive object of lust. He's 6ft4, built like a brick shit house, has hair you just want to pull (in a nice way of course) and a smile (with dimples) to die for. Oh, and he plays Sam Winchester in one of my favourite shows, Supernatural. What's not to love?
So... what did he inspire? Well, there are quite a few smutty stories I've penned that feature very tall, well-built guys. But one instance where the guy has basically been taken from real life and inserted into a story is Just Couldn't Wait, my story from Uniform Behaviour.
I totally just took Jared, dressed him in a posh waiter's uniform, shoved him into my story and let the female lead seduce him. And it was delicious. The story was so much fun to write because I barely had to visualise the male character. He was already stuck in my pervy brain in all his glory. Which leads me to...
2. Jensen Ackles.
Good buddy and Supernatural co-star of previous lust object. Ackles plays Dean Winchester in the show. He's not quite so tall or bulky but, as you can see, still absolutely smoking hot. He has a smile that would make you melt and eyes you could stare into forever. Which is how he found his way into my story Succubus Comes Home, which is featured in the upcoming Cleis Press anthology, Dream Lover.
I took Ackles' on-screen persona of the oldest Winchester brother and put him in a bar, where he got picked up by a succubus on the prowl. But don't worry, he's a big guy, he can look after himself. He was an awesome character to write, and given some comments I've had about his description, I think it turned out well!
3. Alexander Skarsgard.
Here we have another giant of a man – do you see a pattern emerging? You've probably also sussed out my TV watching habits, too. Yes, I'm a True Blood fan, and a fan of Eric Northman in particular. He's a Viking vampire; cool, calculating and scary as hell. So, what did I do with this 6ft something, blonde haired, blue eyed alpha male? I made him into a submissive.
Yes, in a move that surprised even myself, my as-yet-unpublished BDSM story Punish Me Good features a submissive vampire. I wanted to write something that took vampire lore and twisted it. Most vampires are portrayed as strong, fast and powerful – and very much in charge. So I turned this perception on its head and was quite pleased with the resultant story. I just hope the publisher I submitted it to is impressed too – watch this space!
So there you have it, just a snippet of how my TV watching habits and smutty mind result in lots of Google Images searches, naughty Twitter conversations, and oh, some erotic stories. I just hope you find them as hot as they're intended to be!
Thanks again, OGAG-ers, for having me. And readers, I'd love to know your top 3 lust objects and whether they've inspired you creatively. I wonder if some of the same names will crop up? Only time will tell...
