This week’s question: Do your reading habits change in the summer?

 

My answer to that would be no. It’s not like I read more or less during that time of the season, I just do the same thing I’ve always done: read when I have time.

Random Sex Thought Thursday #16

So it hasn’t been that long since I’ve done one of these. I was scared I hadn’t done once since last year or something.

Do you have sexually stimulating dreams based on the movies/TV shows you’ve seen/watched (excluding porn)?

I have. And I’m pretty sure it’s 80% overactive imagination and 20% lack of sexual activity.

Case in Point #1: Christian Kane (WPS March 2012). This guy’s been on my radar since his Lindsey days on ANGEL. He had short hair then. He came into my purview again–and stayed there–when he played in a TV movie called LOVE SONG (2000) and he was Monica’s love interest. Yes, the singer, Monica. I’m all about interracialness so you know I was all over that like a box of Girl Scout Thin Mint cookies. His hair was a bit shaggy, like he needed a haircut. But he was damn sexy. And he sings! And then he starred as The Hitter, Eliot, on the show LEVERAGE and Holy Mother of Hawtness, I was reeled in for good. His hair was down to his shoulders by then. And that’s when I remembered that he sang (country music, not my favorite, but it’s the sexy country music) and the next thing I know, I’m dreaming that I hook up with him after one of his gigs. Hah. I see a Shawtie story in there.

Case in Point #2: Taylor Kitsch (yeah, he’s on the WPS List, too). After I saw him lookin’ all sexy with his long hair in the movie JOHN CARTER(2012), he had a starring role in my dreams for weeks! It started up again when I saw him in BATTLESHIP (2012) with short hair. He may not be doing well in lead roles, but he’s got the lead role in my dreams. There’s just this laid-back sexiness I love about this guy. I so wish he was playing Gambit in the new X-Men movies instead of Channing Tatum..

Case in Point #3: Taylor Lautner (Yep, on the WPS List). I have a serious Mrs. Robinson thing for this kid. It started in the TWILIGHT series and rolled right into ABDUCTION (2011)–where I wanted to toss that bitch out of the train car scene and be her replacement. I had a dream where we were on the run and we were being chased through an alley…yeah I feel another Shawtie story comin’ on. Heehee.

Case in Point #4: Zac Efron (Duh. Of course he’s on the WPS List) Unh! Yeah, him, too. Mrs. Robinson. It started with HIGH SCHOOL MUSIC series and it’s still going strong. There’s a scene in a movie he did,  17 AGAIN (2009), where he looks at actress Leslie Mann like he wants to devour her whole! It was a real quick blink-and-you’ll-miss-it look, but it was the sexiest facial expression I’d ever seen him do. That look should’ve been followed by a little growl of arousal or something. And don’t even get me started on THE LUCKY ONE. All the love scenes? Double up–Unh! Unh! I wanted to toss that bitch in a ditch during those scenes. Especially the shower scene. Holy. Mother. Of Wet Panties. I would’ve happily drowned that bitch to take her place.

Sometimes the dreams are just one night, sometimes they’re recurring. Either way, I think these dreams make for good short short stories (Aka Shawties).

My Double Life: A new sizzling sensual adventure…

As a financial researcher at a successful firm, I’m all about professionalism. At the office I’m calm, capable…and when a delish new client like Trey Fraser shows up, I retreat behind a facade that hides my deepest insecurities.

Pole-dancing class makes me come alive. So when I’m asked to stand in as a feature dancer for one night, all I need is a mask and the knowledge that as “Natalie Night,” I’m irresistible. But when I see Trey in the front row, I turn up the heat—big-time! And suddenly I’m offering a provocative private dance meant only for him….

My alter ego has just opened the door to the one man who is totally off-limits. The man whose eyes tell me how badly he wants me. And the one man who can never know who I really am…

 

At a women’s expo I went to several years ago, I found a postcard in my goodie bag that intrigued me;

pole~ah~tease

The postcard was for a dance fitness place that, among other things, offered pole dancing classes. I was intrigued enough to try it out, since it was a special offer, and I roped a coworker friend of mine into going with me. The instructor who taught it was pretty, mid-30′s I think, married, with a little girl. The room we were in was black-out dark with that ambiance lighting goin’ on. There were a few poles in there and she showed us an 8-count routine.

The one and only feeling I had the entire time was “awkward” (in a singsong tone of voice). That was the first and last time I took a pole dancing class. I would’ve tried their other classes, but the distance was too far.

I have this thing about sensuality.

I lack it.

I’ve never considered myself a sensual person and it didn’t help that the guy I lost my virginity to didn’t bring it out, either. I never dated much so it stands to reason that the next guy I dated consistently, I ended up marrying. Although the arousal was there on his part, something was definitely missing on my end. Which is probably why the marriage didn’t last. I’m happy being single. But enough about me and my hangups. Pole dancing–or in my case, pole~ah~tease–is a way to help you break out of that shyness and find your inner slut.

This is what happens to the heroine.

She was introduced to pole dancing through a bachelorette party and ended up sticking with it. She’s shy by nature, but found that pole dancing was a little freeing and built up her confidence. To the point where her teacher asks her to take her place at a nightclub when she gets injured. When she sees her boss’s newest client sitting in the front row, things get interesting. When pole dancing and/or stripping are involved, you know the sex scenes are going to be off-the-charts hawt and this was no exception. I have to give props to the heroine for having the guys to get up on the stage and do her thing (which wasn’t stripping by the way, more of a burlesque act). And up with the hawt guy.

Reader favorite Wild and Wicked: How does a girl make her sexy best friend notice her as a woman? Why, kidnap him, of course!

Classic theme of best friends and one of the friends wanting more. In this case, the characters (I forgot their names! Sorry!) are business partners. She’s had feelings for him since they first met when they were teenagers and he’s something of a man whore. Now that she’s close to buying him out and he’s about to go his own way and start his own business, she’s ready to change the dynamic. He’s probably had feelings for her for a long time, but has been pushing them aside because he’s afraid it will ruin their longtime friendship. And feeling that she might not feel the same. She’s been tossing him hints and he’s been missing them (and wondering if he’s imagining things). She finally gets her chance during their town’s Gasparilla festival. The festival celebrates a famous pirate and people volunteer to dress up as pirates and “kidnap” a crowd person. She did her best Keira Knightley impression and that’s when things started to get interesting.

I never knew a guy to be so wishy-washy. It was kind of a tug of war and I wanted to slap him upside the head. You want her, she obviously wants you, let the wild monkey sex ensue! Or in this case, the ravishing. LOL. Ahoy matey!

Follow Friday #65

FF_2013Button-300x300

Question this week from Parajunkee and Allison Can Read.

How does this work? You follow a blog, they follow you. Win. Win. Just make sure to follow back if someone follows you! With that being said, please review my Follow Policy before making any rash decisions.

 

If you had a time machine (i.e. a TARDIS), where would you go?

 

Normally, my response to these questions is light and fun, but this time it’s going to be serious. The blogger who posted this question firmly stated “Not the past. The past scares me.” As well it should. If I had a time machine, I would go back in time and kill the person or persons who thought it was okay to deem a race as “less than” and enslave them for years. I imagine this would go pretty far back, as far as ancient times.

Due to that decision, there’s a reason why I hated white people for a week after watching ROOTS.

Due to that decision, there’s a reason why I refuse to watch movies like DJANGO (you know it’s bad when a friend of yours can turn this movie into a drinking game based on how many times the N-word is mentioned), ROSEWOOD, and 12 YEARS A SLAVE.

And yet movies like this continue to be made because it’s a part of our history. A history that never should’ve happened and that continues to be glossed over in schools across the nation.

Due to that decision, there’s a reason why my father wouldn’t let me visit a friend of mine who’d moved to Stone Mountain, GA (birth city of the KKK) during high school.

It amazes me that one person or a group of people can change the course of history to the point where one stupid, ignorant, and arrogant decision spans years, decades, centuries, to the very present where it still exists; It no longer focuses on color but now encompasses ethnicity and religion!

Our world is so ugly right now, it’s a little scary to use that time machine and see what’s in the future, because it could turn out to be something like:

THE BOOK OF ELI

THE HUNGER GAMES

DIVERGENT

OBLIVION

RED DAWN

THE DAY THE EARTH STOOD STILL

WAR OF THE WORLDS

REVOLUTION (TV Show)

FALLING SKIES (TV Show)

Okay, enough of that seriousness. I’m getting depressed now.

Booking Through Thursday #55: Anticipation

Lastly, no, you do NOT have to answer on Thursdays. Please feel free to answer any time you want, we’re just glad to have you.

 

This week’s question: Do you still get excited about new books as you did when you were little? In general? New books in particular, like from a favorite author? Or do you look at all new, unread books with the same level of anticipation?

 

I wouldn’t call it anticipation. Just more of a “looking forward to” type of feeling. For instance, Lori Foster has the Love Undercover series right now and in the most recent book, DASH OF PERIL, she introduced a character, Cannon, that I’m “looking forward to” reading about because he’s an MMA fighter. Her next series is an MMA series, and so I’m “looking forward to” reading it. See where I’m going with this?

I anticipate new movies more than I do books, ironically.

What about you?

Wet Panty Society – July: Aaron Taylor-Johnson

wet-panty-society

The Wet Panty Society was started in July 2011 and is a monthly homage to beautiful, gorgeous, hunkalicious men. During that month, a picture of the chosen Wet Panty Guy will be featured every week for your viewing pleasure in the sidebar to the left. Prepare to drool! If there’s someone you’d like to refer to this exclusive society, please remember what Salt-n-Pepa said– “This is only for the sexy people”–and read the requirements.

I don’t know if you’ve noticed or not, but I’ve been going in alphabetical order. I was on the C’s, but had to jump back for this guy after seeing his recent movie.

This month’s recent inductee into the Society is the smexy Aaron Taylor-Johnson!

Aaron7

Date of Birth: 13 June 1990 , High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire, England, UK

Birth Name: Aaron Perry Johnson

Height: 5′ 11″ (1.8 m)

Where you may have seen him: As Kick-Ass in the movies KICK-ASS (2010) and KICK-ASS 2 (2013)

Where you can see him now:  As gorgeous military soldier Ford Brody in GODZILLA (2014). And if you’re a fan of Marvel, he’s playing the role of Quicksilver in the upcoming flick, THE AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON(2015)

I first became aware of Aaron in Kick-Ass. I thought he had potential because I was mesmerized by his eyes. Big and blue and perfectly round. Then I saw the movie SAVAGES (2012) which totally bombed at the theater but I was like, “Oh hel-lo, Aaron.” I was diggin’ the long hair on him. And then I recently saw GODZILLA and that was the clincher.

Or, shall I say, the buff bod and the buzz cut, was the clincher. But it was really the buff bod.

He may be married to someone twice his age (means he likes older women. You go, boy!) and has two kids, but the dude is still fuckable.

Welcome to the Society, Aaron.

WE KILL FOR PROFIT

Welcome to the world of Vampire Assassin League, where the contract is just the beginning. In VAL there’s no line a vampire won’t cross to secure a true mate once found. Only death can separate them….

Set One: The Beginning contains the following novellas:

KNIGHT AFTER NIGHT: Scot laird Thoran MacKettryck has met his mate, after years of bitter longing and endless existence. He expected someone more experienced; a little less quick with her tongue; a bit more agreeable. What he got was his perfect match – Jolie Pritchard.

BE STILL MY HEART: Sasha Stroyanovich is pure killing machine. There isn’t a man out there safe from her relentless need for vengeance. She hasn’t got a heart. She hasn’t got a dream. She hasn’t got anything other than hate. And then she tries to kill Dr. Stuart Findlay.

DEARLY BELOVED: Dominick Miklos St Guis is a recluse. A shadow. Killing and draining blood without leaving a trace. It’s his signature. Until something goes terribly wrong and he winds up with a captive who came very close to killing him. And for that, Courtney Dwyer is paying…

WE ARE GATHERED: Tristan Navarre Invaris died a crusader knight – a warrior steeped in lessons learned at the end of a sword blade. He’s got everything under control as VAL’s Innovation Specialist. And then something goes awry as the one thing he can’t fathom enters his tightly controlled world: A female. Rori. His mate.

In looking through my Wish List, I was apparently going through a vampire phase at some point. My List has been whittled down to 19 pages long and when I need to stock up, I start from the last page and buy books from there. There are at least two pages worth of vampire books. I chose to read this set because I was getting low on books in my Library, I was getting close to broke in the bank account and starting to feel the effects of withdrawal, and I was desperate. I needed something cheap, under a certain dollar amount.

And this fit the bill.

I have to say that I wasn’t really impressed. These were quick reads, and written quite eloquently to be honest, but they were so quick that the sex scenes were glossed over. Maybe it’s because after reading J.R. Ward’s books, I’ve been spoiled. I mean, her shit is The Shit and if the BDB really existed, I should only be so lucky to get fucked by one of them.  You know I’m all about the sex, and the lack of descriptive detail in that arena was a big turn-off for me and left the Sweet Hole as bone dry as the desert I live in.

And this was only Volume 1.

I had Volume 2 on my Wish List as well, but I unchecked it. Sorry Jackie. :(

On a more positive note, I love the name Tristan Navarre Invaris. Very cool and I especially love the name Navarre.
