Promo Monday with The Great Sex Toy Caper and Competition

This Monday, I have something a little different for you all. A contest, but not just any! The lucky winner of this contest will get a hamper full of some interesting prizes! Read on for more details... 

The Great S*x Toy Caper & Competition

Thanks for having me Phoenix, and a big HI to all the Naughty Pages readers. And I’ve got something very naughty for you today. S*x toys!

Talking about sex toys is one of those dodgy topics. It’s right up there with religion, politics, and how you lost your virginity (never as racy or exciting as it should have been). A common way to cover up embarrassment or shame when talking about one’s personal battery operated significant other is to give it a cutesy name. In my debut erotic novella, Bloom, the heroine (Emma) escapes from the drudgery and routine of her life with her fantasies about Ramon (see synopsis below) and her sex toy, Mr. Buzzy.

A funny name seems to take the shame out of even acknowledging one owns a toy of this nature. It’s as if by calling it B.O.B. (Battery Operated Boyfriend) for example, the toy becomes less of an object of perversity and more like a family pet.

The truth is, when you have a good hunt around on the internet, the range, scope and SIZE of available sex toys is . . . well . . . terrifying. I ask you, what woman has the capacity to take a silicon dildo the equivalent length of 3 coke cans laid out end to end? I know, it makes your eyes water doesn’t it? So why wouldn’t we dumb it down and cutesy it up with a droll name?

Which brings me to the fun competition I’ve got running from 22 February – 11 March, plenty of time to consider, research and enter. The winner will recieve an Sexy Caper Hamper including a hardcopy of Indigo Bloom’s Destined to Play and Destined to Feel, Kindle copies of my erotic e-books Breaking the Rules and Bloom, some sexy body stuff AND a cute little sex toy called a Love Bunny.

Entering is easy. Come up with a funky, cutesy or naughty name for a personal sex toy – for some inspiration try here, or I found a game you can play that might inspire too. Go to my blog post announcing the competition (22 February), fill in the form, enter your cheeky sex toy name in the space provided and submit. Each person is allowed a total of three entries. I have a small group of authorly judges who will consider the names and decide on the winner (we might have runners up if we find a couple of beauties). The winner will be announced (with initials only if you prefer to be anonymous) on The Ecstasy Files March 15th blogpost – along with a selection of the best entries.

So, what are you waiting for? Get playful, come along and join in the fun.

Breaking the Rules: Grace is a beautiful woman in complete control of her world. A long time ago she chose a career over children and marriage, and has never regretted it. Then Ramon Mendez walks into her office. 
Ramon is about to commence his PhD, a work on erotic literature, and from the outset there is something about him that makes Grace’s blood run hot. Aware of the need to maintain her professional reputation, she
rejects his advances, but he persists. And during their intimate supervision sessions, her defences start to crumble, for Ramon’s work is exposing desires within Grace she never knew existed.

Bloom: Thirty-six-year-old Emma’s life looks as perfect as could be. She loves her solid, straight-laced husband Gary, who has given her three beautiful, if spoilt, children and a secure life. But something is missing. Gary hardly notices her anymore and she feels frumpy and invisible. Her friend, Lisa, talks her into joining a social boot camp class at the local gym. Emma immediately recognises their instructor as the gorgeous runner she sees each evening while walking her dog in the park. He introduces himself as Ramon Mendez. In spite of herself Emma is besotted.

Before long her mind is filled with guilty fantasies of him. One evening, when things at home have become too much to bear, she bumps into him alone in the park. An opportunity presents itself and no one need ever know. Ramon promises and delivers everything that’s missing from her marriage – passion, romance and excitement – but Emma must discover if they are the things she really wants.
