Erica Lust’s X Confessions: Finally some porn I want to watch

I’m well up for porn. Though having an extremely vivid imagination means I can frolic with John Boyega and the cast of Magic Mike unimpeded by firewalls, and while the joy of a solo orgasm occasionally suffices without so much as a nipple crossing my mind, pornography still has a place in my life.

And Wednesday is the semi-embarrassing kid you have to sit next to at lunchtimes until you’re eventually taken under the warm, chubby wing of Thursday who gives you a…

Eat me, drink me: A Halloween menu inspired by creeps in love 

On October 13th, he asked me what was for Halloween dinner. Wait, what’s that? You haven’t been getting excited for Halloween since the middle of August? Oh you have, OK good. Phew.
