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

First Spartacus, now Game of Thrones


 For today's post I am using the KISS IT approach:

Keep
It
Short and
Sexy.

Include 
Trailers!


Imagery. Storyline. Action. Special Effects. Yeah, sure. That's why I watch Game of Thrones...




Sorta the same reason why Spartacus was one of my favorites as well.... you know, the storyline...





I think it may be time I write a medieval and gladiator vampire tale. I mean, I'm not short on the supply of inspiration.

#ThirstyThursday ~ Character Interview with @LoriKingBooks


Welcome to Thirsty Thursday everyone... We have the beautiful and talented Lori King with us here today and she's brought one of her characters with her. So say hello to Cadence Diego from Lori's new release, Caress of the Wolf.

Character Interview – Cadence Diego



Interviewer: We’ll start simple, what are your stats?

     Cadence Diego: My stats?

I: Yeah, your name, age, physical specs, zodiac sign?

     CD: Good grief. Do readers really care about that kind of thing? Don’t you have a pic you can just put up?

I: Uh yeah, but they want to hear about you from you, otherwise we wouldn’t be doing this. Come on Cadence, cooperate with me and this will go faster.

     CD: I sure as hell hope so. I have shit to do. *sigh* My full name is Cadence Renault Diego, and I’m twenty five.

I: And your physical specs?

     CD: Seriously? *another sigh* My physical specs-as you so eloquently put it-I’m six foot four and I weigh in at about two hundred thirty pounds. Oh and I can bench press more than five hundred pounds. Anything else?

I: Zodiac?

     CD: Aries.

I: What do you do for a living?

    CD: I co-own 3 Moons Security in Chicago with my cousin, Mateo, and I’m the Alpha for the Diego Pack.

I: Sounds like you’re a busy guy! How do you plan to make time for your new mate?

     CD: *wicked grin* That won’t be a problem. Whitney knows she will always be my first priority. In fact, she’s at home waiting for me now, so we need to hurry this up.

I: Tell me about her.

     CD: She’s the most beautiful, stubborn, sexy, illogical woman I’ve ever met. She keeps me and Mateo on our toes, and I think I’ll spend the rest of my life trying to figure her out.

I: What’s it like sharing a mate?

     CD: It’s got pluses and minuses. I never expected to share my mate with anyone, but if it had to be that way I’m glad it’s with Mateo. It’s comforting to know that someone else is looking out for her too, and sometimes it’s nice to have someone to drink a beer with when she’s moody. *grimacing* Don’t tell her I said that or she will definitely be moody tonight.

I: My lips are sealed. I know you met her at the Gray Pack den, how did you end up there?

    CD: My father lost his mind and attacked their Alpha’s mate last year. In order to prove that the Diego wolves don’t hold a grudge against Devin and Damon Gray, we asked them to host our Alpha battle. To tell you the truth I was shocked when they agreed. I mean, I’m not sure I could be so gracious or forgiving.

I: Was the Alpha battle bloody?

     CD: *shaking his head* I’m not supposed to talk about that. You have to read the book, Lori would kick my ass if I shared too much.

I: I promise I won’t tell her. Can’t you give us a sneak peek?

     CD: Are you finished with your questions?

I: If it means you’ll share some of the book with me, definitely!

     CD: Deal. Happy reading, I’m going to find Whitney for a little afternoon delight before I have to go to work tonight.

I: Thank you Cadence! It was great meeting you!


Secret Excerpt (Also known as Cadence Diego’s favorite scene)

The fragrance of almonds filled the air when Cadence reached Whitney’s cabin. He could hear the water running in the bathroom, and his cock thickened. He wanted his mate, but he wasn’t sure that she would welcome him after what had happened to Tawny.
Walking through the bedroom, he paused just outside the bathroom doorway, watching her sleek curvy form through the ivory-colored shower curtain. His wolf pushed at him, growling and pacing in his head because it wanted to get closer to its mate.
“Are you waiting for an invitation?”
The shower curtain slid to the side, and she gave him a scorching look. His mouth went dry and his cock grew hard in an instant. Her beauty was breathtaking. She looked like a sea nymph with water coursing down her golden skin, and her black hair slicked back and reaching to her hips.
“You’re tired. I figured I better give you a little space,” he said with a shrug.
One of her dark eyebrows rose, and she stared pointedly at his swollen cock. “What if I don’t want space?”
He barely breathed as he shot across the room to join her in the shower. She was laughing as she tugged his forgotten and now damp clothes from the loop around his neck and tossed them to the bathroom floor. It was as though both wolf and man were starving for the woman in front of them. Running his hands over her satiny skin, he caressed every inch he could reach and then proceeded to kiss her senseless. It was the only way he knew how to tell her what he was feeling.
Grateful that she was safe, terrified that this wasn’t the last time her life might be in danger, anxiety over her earlier unwillingness to leave her pack and be the Alpha-Bitch of his, and grief over the loss of yet another pack mate. Sure, Reyes wasn’t his best friend, but he still felt a sense of obligation to the man as family.
Whitney absorbed every emotion and responded in kind. Caressing him with her tiny hands and soothing the raging beast in his soul. She was oxygen to his fire, and he didn’t hold back. Lifting her off of her feet, he braced back against the wall and held her curvy ass in his hands. She writhed against him and he reciprocated by grinding his cock into her hot wet slit.
“I need you,” she whispered.
All brain power left his head and filled his balls. He couldn’t focus on anything more than sinking into her welcoming heat. She needed him, and he’d be damned if he’d leave her needy. When their bodies joined, fire raced through his blood, and peace filled his chest. This was his place. No matter what else happened to them, or where they went from here, when he was balls deep in her tight cunt he was at peace.


Caress of the Wolf
The Gray Pack Book 5

In a time of transition, only the strongest will thrive…

Whitney Gray is less than thrilled that her werewolf pack is hosting another packs Alpha battle. She figures the Diego wolves have done enough damage to the Gray wolves to last a lifetime, but when cousins Cadence and Mateo Diego step into her life she finds herself on a new and dangerous path.

Cadence and Mateo are determined to protect their birthright, and secure their place as the leaders of the Diego Pack. They didn’t anticipate finding their mate, and now they are protecting her and her family from a threat that ends up being way to close for comfort.

The newly mated trio begin planning for a life or death battle, and end up on a journey from betrayal to forgiveness, but when you’re battling the past, someone’s bound to get hurt.

Unusual Aphrodisiacs to Turn You On! #sex #romance #relationships

5 Surprising Aphrodisiacs

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! 
I'm juicing--basically liquifying everything in the hopes of getting healthier. Because of this new phase I'm in, I am admittedly obsessed with food. This led me to research some aphrodisiacs that aren't that common. Enjoy! 
  1. Avocados. I'm beginning to think this is the miracle food. It's good for everything, even your sex life! Avocados have been proven to stimulate sexual vitality. Odd fact: Did you know that the ancient Aztecs used to call Avocado plants 'testicle trees' because of their shape? 
  2. Seaweed. Bring on the sushi! Seaweed is rich in iodine and B-Vitamins that amplify the libido. Not sure where to get seaweed? Well, it can be found in a few forms including nori (used to wrap sushi) and kelp.
  3. Salami. This one really surprised me, but the facts are that salami is rich in phenylethylamine, a chemical that makes the brain feel as if it is in love. 
  4. Pine Nuts. These have a lot in common with oysters. Why? Because they are both rich in zinc, a mineral needed for optimum production of sex hormones, particularly testosterone. These are available everywhere. Hey, why not have a seaweed salad topped with pine nuts and avocado with some salami on the side? 
  5. Chili Peppers. These are filled with Capsaicin, which boosts your endorphins and elevates your mood. Also, studies have shown that chili peppers can increase your blood flow for extra sizzle between the sheets. 
Happy experimenting!
