Eroticon 2013: Write Sex Right Meet and GreetPosted: February 26, 2013
This year I’m all a-flutter about attending my first ever Eroticon, the conference for sex bloggers and erotic writers. I’m a year behind the event, which held its inaugural get-together in 2012, so I’m looking forward to catching up with everyone there.

Must attend Eroticon 2013 session: Having seen both Petra Boynton and Meg Barker speak at the Science Of Sex festival in Brighton last month, I think their academic take on ‘Erotica, its role in relationships & expanding sexualities’ will be fascinating. I love feeding my inner geek, and this looks like the perfect session in which to indulge…
I’m also interested in Ruth and Les Browne’s ‘Disability and Sex’ talk, as I think it’s a very important subject that deserves far more exposure than salacious Red Top papers screaming about sex workers in care homes (the work of whom, happily – and unusually – most commentators seem to support in this instance).
Bloggers you’d like to be trapped in the lift with: All the bloggers and industry experts I’ve met online but never in person – too many to mention, so let’s just say I’m intrigued and excited! I’m especially looking forward to meeting the wonderful writers who contribute to Cliterati: Lucy Felthouse, Lady Pandorah, Molly Moore, LadyLaidBare and of course the lovely Blacksilk who I’ve already spent a happy hour with in Cardiff.
Erotic writer you’d like to write dramatize your life story: I enjoy the fast pace of Sylvia Day’s Crossfire books, and since my life seems to be non-stop drama(!) I think she’d write it very well.
Expected biggest fangirl / fanboy moment: I’m hoping to meet Cindy Gallop, as I really like her makelovenotporn idea. I wish the American blogger Maggie McNeil (The Honest Courtesan) was coming, as she’s got a great brain on her shoulders and I’d love to pick it – I really admire her writing.
What keeps you awake at nights? Mentally organising what I’m going to achieve the following day (which is ridiculous, since it generally leaves me sleep-deprived andtherefore too tired to fulfil all my carefully-laid plans), the family laundry (it’s a constant battle), and being excited about the big girlie get-together at Eroticon 2013.
