This is the kind of post I might write, or hope to write, if I had a pussy.
To be fair, I’ve written posts that are structurally similar, so it’s a bit narcissistic to say, “Hey! Look at this! It’s great! It’s like my blog!”
As a blog reader, I often find myself dissatisfied with most of the sex blogs out there. Writing about who put what where doesn’t do it for me. What interests me is writing that reveals something intensely personal about someone, about the workings of their desire. We all are unique, idiosyncratic, so every time I get an inkling of how someone else’s desire or body works, I feel richer. Each of us is a story, a story that fascinates me. I like learning others’ stories – especially, but not at all limited to, their sexual stories.
I fought so hard, so long, to get even the beginnings of insight into my own sexual story. When I get a glimpse into another’s, I am grateful.
N. is sooooo right about how it’s something he’d write! Same style, same clip, same POV in some way. I think he’s written a post on how to blow him, if I remember correctly. I’ve sorta heard about The Literary Wench before, but this is the first time I’ve ever read her and I’m so glad that N. Likes has pointed me in her direction.
I can also say that I agree with her 100%. Spot on, hot, pulsing writing. I’m going to enjoy peeking through her archives!
I’ve written a ton about how to blow me. In fact, here’s a whole page of posts that’s pretty much devoted to the topic.
I only just discovered this blog, so I don’t know much about Onewoman, but what drew me to her writing and for making her my first pick was how she threaded reflections on cultural differences, her body image insecurities, and her verve for adventure into a single post.
The post reveals a lot about her even though I doubt that was her aim. She’s candid and raw, perfunctory, yet funny.
It’s long, but she writes with such inertia I couldn’t stop reading. It’s not erotica, per se, and it’s got grammatical and spelling errors, too, but it’s still a damn good tale and it makes me want to dig around more. Which, to me, is the mark of good writing.
I’m definitely late to the party, though, since 6,847 (!) have come before me, if her subscription numbers can be believed.
1. Not to be a dick, but do you really mean “inertia,” Hy?
2. 6,847 subscribers? WTF? I have some astonishingly small number that’s a pain in the ass to count because some of them come through JetPack and some through Feedburner, and neither is easy or pleasant to use.
Now, on to the post….
It is long. I was pained by the length. It’s also a tale of fuckery, which I have a predisposition against. But it’s about Holland. And I really like Holland.
And I agree with Hy – it’s a great story. It’s got twists, and turns, and insults, and…. It butts up against a couple of my personal pet peeves (misspellings/typos/grammatical errors, use of cutesie words – the last sentence features the words “poo” and “wee” – not always the hottest for me). The blog is great, though – it has an organizing conceit that makes the whole blog a story, in addition to just being a collection of stories. And, there’s a video featuring the blogger! How many of us are that bold? (I’m not – a commenter just asked for me to show a picture of a hypothetical tattoo that I don’t even have, and I blanched.)
She hasn’t been posting a lot – her last post was in February, but before that, it was November that she last posted. Here’s hoping we can do more than browse through her back-catalog.
