#FourSeducedMuses - When Porn is an Epic Fail! on #ThirstyThursdays with @AuthorNicMorgan




Welcome to Thirsty Thursdays where Four Seduced Muses Erotic Suspense Romance author, Nicole Morgan treats us all with a few tricks on how to keep your love life spicy, your imagination craving and your thirst never quite quenched enough. After all, one should never just be satisfied, but instead open their minds to what else is out there. So sit back, relax and enjoy what we have to offer you today! 


When Porn is an Epic Fail!   
Okay, maybe that title is a bit over dramatic, but desperate times call for desperate measures. Lately I've been noticing a disturbing trend in the wacky world of the world wide web. For years we've all dealt with those pesky spam email accounts that hit the yahoo groups/loops daily. For the most part they get ignored and none of us pay much mind to the skeptical links provided to us. For me they were nothing more than an annoyance at the very most. That was until recently when things started to change. I can remember years ago when a good old fashioned porn link would include a simple subject line which made sense and at least held the potential to raise someone's eyebrow and make them mildly curious. Oh how times have changed though. There must have been a shift in the porn spammer industry, because as of late, whoever is sending those emails out either has virtually no experience with porn, or is incredibly socially awkward. Below are just a few examples of subject lines from emails I've received via the Yahoo Groups that I feel are epic fails by the porn spammer industry:


"Chubby Ebony Do A Tit Fuck"
Umm... what??

"Wild Kitchen Sex with Teens"
Eww... I don't want to think about "teens" having sex!! Who knows how old those kids really are!!

"Schoolgirl F*cked with Baseball Bat"
Again, Eww!!! Why does it have to be a "schoolgirl"? Is she even 18? And a baseball bat? WTF?!

"Teenage Girl Gets Anal Sex Near Her Yellow Car"
Again with the teenage girl bit? This borderline gray area of pedophilia makes me nervous, but hey, at least they added some depth to the story by adding the color of her car. *smh*

"Asian Street Meat Boo"
Umm... what??? Does anyone know what this means? Is this an Asian butcher on Halloween??

I can't help but LOL at these subject lines that are supposed to make us want to click on that link which most likely contains a virus.  Thanks for LOLing with me! 

Until next week lovies ~ Nic

Maybe I should write romantic comedies? One fiasco after another #dating #relationships #asmsg

Yep, that really happened…dating with The Temptress
I'm Amber Lea Easton, aka Dakota Skye and The Temptress, and I'm here to have some fun. I hope you are, too. I'm a romantic suspense, contemporary romance and paranormal erotic romance (Dakota Skye) author who enjoys pushing boundaries. Nothing turns me on more than making my readers squirm with tension from a suspenseful storyline and sensuous seduction scene. When I think of temptation, I automatically smile. The word alone makes me think of decadence, impulse, exploration, laughter, and boldness. On Tempt Me Tuesdays, I intend to delve into all of those elements of temptation with lighthearted glee! I enjoy comments on my blog posts, so please interact as often as possible. Let's have some fun together! 
One of the reasons I enjoy writing dating, flirting, relationship tips here on the Muses' blog is that I'm learning---or should I say 're-learning'--all of it myself. I've been widowed for nearly nine years. A young widow in the big scheme of things with two small children to raise, I didn't take a lot of time to date at first. Now that I'm back on the market, it's been one fiasco after another. I thought I'd share some of my experiences as a cautionary tale of 'what not to do' when dating. 

My first time out of the gate felt like a safe bet. I'd reconnected with a high school sweetheart via Facebook. I know, I know…cliche, right? Well, he worked for a major airline and could travel easily so I didn't allow the distance between us to deter me. He'd lost his wife, too, and we bonded over the "too young to be widowed" feeling. Jim had always been one to bring out my wild side in high school and had the same effect on me two decades later. Soon we were Skyping…and with Skyping came webcam sex. Yep, that was a new one for me! There we were with our laptops, flirting as usual, when the clothes started coming off. Wham, bam…you're not recording this, are you?! 

That's when things got weird--yes, the webcam sex seemed normal in comparison to what happened next. When we saw each other in person about a month afterward, he burst into tears and admitted dating his deceased wife's niece who was in her 20s. I kid you NOT. Lesson learned: No webcam sex until after monogamy. 

Round two came with a wannabe writer named Kerry. I thought that the writing connection would be a good starting point. He wasn't my type, but after the Jim fiasco, I thought perhaps that was a good thing. Loneliness can drive a person to make bad decisions. At this point, I'd been a widow and solo parent for several years. I liked dating Kerry. We had a good time. We went to hockey and lacrosse games, played pool, attended plays, and liked the same music. Oh, but he was not at all what he seemed. It turned out that he was a complete fraud. He'd heard the words 'widow' and 'novelist' and thought he could cash in on a lonely heart. When I called him out on some things that didn't add up, the ugly side came out. Months later I heard he'd been arrested for taking pornographic pictures of women without their knowledge and putting them up on a website! No, I wasn't amongst them. Kerry, I'm glad to say, never got my clothes off. Lesson learned: always trust my gut because when he first asked me out, my instinct had been to say NO, but my girlfriends' voices in my head told me not to be so fussy. BE FUSSY! 

Third time's the charm, right? Nope. Enter Scott, a self-made millionaire who I also hung out with in high school. He'd been a class ahead of me and we'd always been good friends. Our first date was amazing…a day at the Denver Botanical Gardens, nonstop talking and walking. We clicked. Then came the Cuban food with one too many mojitos that had me rushing to the bathroom where I puked all over the stall like the chic from the exorcist. It was nasty. Trying to appear cool, I took my time, cleaned up, found some mints, and repaired myself as best as possible. We salvaged the night with a nice walk around downtown Denver, but when he took me back to my car it was locked in a parking garage! This meant he needed to drive me home, which was a good hour and a half out of his way. The place was a mess with clothes piled high in laundry baskets and kids' crap everywhere. Believe it or not, we dated for another five dates before calling it quits. Why didn't it work? He wanted a baby mama and didn't want anything to do with my kids, even went so far as to call them "another man's problem" (keep in mind that I'm a widow…). Lesson learned: Leave the old classmate connection for reunions and never have more than two mojitos on a first date! 

Well, I decided to try Match.com although I had my doubts. I actually met a great guy and we were 98% compatible according to the site's algorithm. After talking on the phone for awhile and emailing, we met for drinks. Gorgeous guy. Very nice. Cried about his ex-wife. More than that, he'd taken me to the restaurant where his ex-wife had worked! Then he went on and on about his marriage and how he wanted guarantees. Gorgeous man, though. Too bad he still loved his ex! Lesson learned: Dating is an adventure and, when all else fails, I can write about it. 

Current status: Single, Amused, and Cautious

#MoltenMondays - @KayelleAllen visits with a New Release + Giveaway


The Last Vhalgenn By Kayelle Allen
Duty to king and country has shaped Raik's life since birth, but to protect them, she must perform a ritual that betrays all she holds sacred. 
The Vhalgenn is a warrior, bedmate, soulmate, companion, and friend. Trusted by the king. Hated by the queen. To save the newborn prince, the Vhalgenn will risk her position, her honor, and death itself to honor the Old Ways. But when she takes the newborn prince to the queen's homeland for a ritual blessing, she discovers a betrayal so deep the kingdom -- and her heart -- might never recover. 
This fantasy features a strong heroine, and was originally part of the 2008 EPIC eBook Award nominated anthology A Time To... Volume 1 - The Best of The Lorelei Signal, from Wolfsinger Publications, which is now out of print. The strong female character possesses nobility, honor, and courage, and is a role model for women. The book is dedicated to all women warriors, whatever their battle, and is written by a US Navy Veteran.

In this scene from The Last Vhalgenn, the heroine, Raik, has just bathed and eaten, and is alone with King Orix. They grew up together, but his new queen barred Raik from the palace. Raik is back to deliver news of a battle and while delighted to be with Orix, is nervous about his queen discovering them.
EXCERPT
Orix set his fingers beneath my chin, and turned my face up to his. "You're more than pretty, Vhalgenn, you're magnificent. She's never once sat near the fire with me and talked."
It had been our nightly ritual. "Never?"
"Never." He brushed my hair back from my face. "I've learned to get along with her, Vhalgenn, but I never had to learn anything with you. We grew up with one another. You were my partner in everything I did. My lover, my sister, my sparring partner, my best friend. My everything."
I lifted my head to look up at him. As I did, his mouth came down on mine. A feverish chill coursed through me at his touch. I'd wanted his mouth from the moment I'd seen him on his throne. Orix could not help but be languid and sultry and hot. I felt desire emanating from him like heat from an oven with its door ajar. It scorched my face and I drew in a shallow breath, afraid of being burnt.
Resisting him was something I had never done, except in play. He thought I meant it that way now and made as if to pressure me, until he saw my eyes were brimming.
"Please, Orix. Don't." I pushed myself away from him. "I can't."
He frowned, confused. For him, life was simple. A need? Fulfill it. Thirsty? Drink. Hungry? Eat. Lusty? Love.
"Half the palace must know I'm here. Do you think your queen will let this go unnoticed? She'll have someone in here to check on me before the night's through and I won't be thrown out again, Orix. I couldn't bear it."
"Vhalgenn, I promise. She'll never know."
"No!" I moved away from him. "She's no fool. She's your queen and she's risking her life to have your child. The least you can do is be faithful."
The look of horror on his face tore out a piece of my heart. Then I realized he was looking past me.
His pregnant queen stood in the darkness, right outside the door.

~Maya DeLeina

 

 

Bad Sex. Good Sex.



Now, don't roll your eyes when you read the next sentence.

We've all had at least one "eh" sexual experience.

What's that? No? You've had the GREATEST sex each and every time? Well, damn. Either you're lying or you're the luckiest person I know.

For the rest of us, the "eh" sexual experience was most likely because the sexual compatibility just wasn't there. When I hear people talk about a past lover not being good in bed or so good that they knocked the filing out of their teeth, I always ask why.

What was good? What was bad?

Of course "size" came up- small penis, no breasts. But I've also heard the small sizes uttered in the 'good in bed category'...

"He wasn't well endowed, but damn, he knew how to make up for it."

"Her front looked like her back, but with her oral talents, I didn't care."

I've also heard the same man described in both the bad and good category for different women.

So, what makes a good lover goes deeper than the physical attributes. It really has to do with preferences, moods, comfort levels and compatibility in partners.

Here are some entertaining videos from both male and female views on bad sex:

 

 Women on Men

Men on Women

  


Okay. Enough with bad sex. You get it.

Here are some some interesting articles from both the male and female perspective on what makes a good lover.

 

Him

 

Her

 

Lastly, ask yourself....what the heck do I want when it comes to sex? Sex is one of the greatest experiences to be had and understanding you, letting go of sexual hangups, being confident, and just being truthful in what makes you satisfied behind closed doors makes all the difference in the world.

Consider taking these quizzes to better understand your preferences. And try having your lover take the quiz as well so you both can be each others sexual fantasy:

 

What is  your style of loving?

What kind of sex do you like?

What is your ideal companion?

How experienced are you?

#ThirstyThursdays ~ The Beauty of Integrity with @AuthorNicMorgan




Welcome to Thirsty Thursdays where Four Seduced Muses Erotic Suspense Romance author, Nicole Morgan treats us all with a few tricks on how to keep your love life spicy, your imagination craving and your thirst never quite quenched enough. After all, one should never just be satisfied, but instead open their minds to what else is out there. So sit back, relax and enjoy what we have to offer you today! 

~ The Beauty of Integrity ~  

Hi everyone. I hope you're all comfy because I wanted to switch gears a little bit today and talk about something that hit home with me recently. I actually am putting this post up late because I really struggled with whether or not this blog was the right place to voice my thoughts on this particular issue, but in the end I have decided that there is never a bad time to discuss something that is so important. What am I talking about, you ask? Well, everyone... I'm talking about integrity. It is an essential part of our daily lives, whether it be personally or professionally based, the word itself lends to a part of our character and the type of person we are.  

Integrity goes deeper than just turning in a lost wallet or handing back a dollar bill to the person who unknowingly dropped it. It is also in how we deal with everyday situations. In these modern times so many people have become jaded solely because of the way people behave. Integrity, or rather, the lackthereof in today's world has caused personal and professional rifts, not to mention even potentially causing the downfall of one's career. Business may be business, but when one chooses to act less than honest, and breaks all the rules of integrity, it becomes very personal. 



in·teg·ri·ty inˈtegritē
noun - the quality of being honest and having strong moral principles





These traits are not just important to how others perceive you, but they're good for your soul. If your demeanor is to act without integrity, you are not just seen as a dishonest and unkind person, but you become very unattractive in their eyes. We've all heard the old adage that beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but to add to that, beauty is also perceived in how we treat others. You can be the most attractive person in the world by today's standards, but if your personality and actions are ugly, then your beauty is inconsequential, because you have failed yourself by not allowing your true beauty to shine through. 

So, in closing... throw the negative behavior aside. Act with respect to how you'd want others to treat you, and never forget that a mirror is merely a looking glass into the soul. 





Until next week lovies ~ Nic Y

Flirting 1-0-1 with The Temptress. Come and get schooled! #relationships #dating #flirting

Get your flirt on! 

I'm Amber Lea Easton, aka Dakota Skye and The Temptress, and I'm here to have some fun. I hope you are, too. I'm a romantic suspense, contemporary romance and paranormal erotic romance (Dakota Skye) author who enjoys pushing boundaries. Nothing turns me on more than making my readers squirm with tension from a suspenseful storyline and sensuous seduction scene. I may not write erotica per se, but I get the job done, baby! When I think of temptation, I automatically smile. The word alone makes me think of decadence, impulse, exploration, laughter, and boldness. On Tempt Me Tuesdays, I intend to delve into all of those elements of temptation with lighthearted glee! I enjoy comments on my blog posts, so please interact as often as possible. Let's have some fun together! 
Why is the idea of flirting so intimidating? For most of us it is. Maybe we fear looking slutty or invoking the wrath of other females. Or maybe we've just been out of the dating scene for too long. These are some easy ways to flirt without appearing 'desperate', 'slutty', 'silly,' or any other derogatory word you can come up with. Not dating? That's okay. All men like it when his woman flirts with him--give it a try! 
  1. Be expressive. Be the kind of woman who isn't afraid to express her opinions, laugh out loud, or dance with her friends. Showing a man that you're bold in your feelings about life can attract his attention and make him want to get to know you. 
  2. Radiate confidence. This goes right along with the above. Self-assurance is an aphrodisiac when done in a genuine--not a 'look at me'--way. People glow when they feel good about themselves and that's sexy!
  3. Be open. When you have inviting body language--appearing warm and friendly--he'll find you much more approachable. Open body language is inviting and sends the right message so he knows you're interested. 
  4. Touch him. No, I'm not talking about groping him. I'm talking about a gentle touch on the forearm or hand to reinforce a point. 
  5. Give him openeners for conversation. Men can get stuck trying to figure out how to talk to you--yes, they are humans, too--so give him a break by handing him some topics like something from the news that he'd know about unless he's been sequestered in a cave, the venue you're at, the drink you're drinking, or anything that could get the conversation going rather than stalling. 
  6. Compliment him. Men like to know what you find appealing about them so go ahead, don't be shy. Who doesn't like a compliment? Complimenting a guy is a great way to flirt without giving up your power. When you give a compliment, it shows that you are confident enough to make someone else feel good about themselves. Not only will this make the man feel more secure around you, you'll also appear more self-confident, which we've already decided is a good thing. Just don't be slutty in your compliment--keep it classy. 
  7. Ask him questions. Asking questions shows that you're interested in knowing him better. Listen to his answers and use them to ask more questions. People like to know they are being heard and that you're paying attention. 
  8. Make eye-contact and then look away. Hold a glance a few seconds longer than necessary and then look away. This is called the silent flirt. It makes him wonder what you're thinking. No need to wink or lick your lips or anything tacky because that will have the opposite effect! 
  9. Be an actual lady. Contrary to what you've been told about being 'one of the guys', men are truly attracted to feminine qualities. Save the tomboy, sporty attitude for later when you're doing things--no need to turn that off, but a balance goes a long way to attracting a man. Keep it sweet and simple. Show him you have manners so that he won't be embarrassed taking you to meet his coworkers…or his parents. 
  10. Flip your hair. This move worked in 6th grade and it still works today. Flipping your hair or toying with it is a classic flirtatious move that shows a man you're flirting with him. Men find the feminine aspects of your appearance irresistible. 
  11. Mimic his movements. If he's leaning forward in his chair, do the same. When you're mirror the movements of someone you're interested in, it sends the signal that you're on the same wavelength.
  12. Suggest hanging out sometime. The words 'hanging out' or less intimidating than asking him for an actual date. For example, if he says he's really into surfing or skiing, say something about how you've always wanted to learn or, if you're an expert, say how you'd like to go sometime. 
  13. Smile. I've saved the best for last. Smiling is your best feature (unless you don't have teeth, in which case, I suggest a dentist). It's the easiest, most effective way to flirt and anyone can do it! It's also noncommittal--you could be just being friendly or remembering something funny from earlier--in case he doesn't flirt back.

#SinfullySassySundays: Appearances Can Be Deceiving #BDSM #submissive


Welcome to Sinfully Sassy Sundays at Four Seduced Muses. I'm The Vixen, your guide to all things sinful, sassy, naughty and oh sooooo taboo. This week's discussion focuses on appearances. 

I've had people say to me that I don't look like someone who would write erotica or erotic romance. The next thing out of their mouths is that I couldn't possibly know anything about BDSM because don't look the type. They assume I'm a "good girl" and wouldn't be interested in all that kink.

Cue the maniacal laughter




In my case, appearances are most definitely deceiving, but how can you tell if someone is a submissive (or a Dominant)? Some folks may want to have completely separate "personas" and give off different vibes in public and in private. Others want to have some form of signal such as a tattoo, piercing, jewelry/collar or other article of clothing that lets others in the lifestyle know what they're interested in.



It's particularly important when you're in a group or any BDSM event. If you're with a partner, you would want to make it clear you're already involved and not available. Collars are a pretty good clue to others you're off limits. They can be decorative and understated...






or something that screams "I'm owned" complete with lock and a leash for your Dom/Domme to control.


Clothing and accessories are only a part of the the experience and to me a lot of the fun. I like that people are surprised by my choice of lifestyle. Their reactions are part of the overall thrill for me. The look on their faces is priceless. ;)




For more information on dressing the part, check out this article.

For Submissives Only: How to Signify That You’re a Submissive when you Look Like a Dominant!

As with everything in the world of BDSM, how you make your orientation known is completely up to you. As a submissive, YOU have all control. A Dom/Domme has no power over you unless you choose to give it to them. YOU set the limits and a loving, caring partner will always honor them.


Until next time
~The Vixen
