I love smut! I love reading it. I love writing it. Sometimes I roll around naked in it. Not really. But I have been known to sleep with a dirty book a time or two. Having that hard spine next to me really gets me all hot and bothered. :D
I'm not really sure when I first started loving smut. Perhaps it was that night at the dinner table when I sat on that ridiculous pine cone. No, it was more of a gradual thing. But once I was hooked, I was hooked beyond all reason. I even earned the title ®Smutaholic. I might have given myself that title. I still need to make a t-shirt with that on it. *adds to to-do list* Why do I love smut so much, you ask? Because I am a single woman and I have needs. Because it makes me feel all warm and tingly inside. Because smut is yummy. I don't read trashy stuff. I prefer my smut to have a story. I even enjoy a little romantic fluff with my smut. Smuff, if you will.
Now, I know you're all wondering when I started writing smut. Well, I can't give you an exact date on that either (May 20, 2008). I wanted to push myself outside of my comfort zone so I wrote a short story with just a splash of naughtiness. It was like a drug for me. Since then, nearly every story I've written has the smutty. It's not that I can't write a story without it. I can even read a story without it, but when Mr. Sexy and Miss Hot Stuff have their happily ever after, I would like a little bow-chicka-wow-wow to tie things up in a neat little, delicious package.
There are a few go-to authors on my list when I'm needing a smut fix. Numbers one and two are Margaret Ethridge and Maggie Wells. I'm a lucky girl because I happen to be friends with them, and sometimes I get a sneak peek at the hotness before it winds up in my new favourite book. Beth Kery is another favourite. I've heard good things about Evelyn Jules too. Oops. Where did that come from? ;)
So, friends, tell me, do you enjoy a side of smut with your story? Or do you prefer a side of story with your smut? Who are your favourite smut authors? *gets pen ready*
