Hi Ladies and Gentlemen, my name is Benjamin Russell – welcome to my very first 69 Shades of Smut Blog post. I am an author of erotica and I’m a fiercely multifarious lover of life and all things naughty. I spend the daylight hours expunging my forbidden desires into bawdy stories for my readers, while I reserve the nights to service my wanton Muse and her fertile imagination. You can LIKE me on FaceBook by clicking on the embedded link in my name.
I am truly delighted to be here on a blog named for my favorite number – 69. That number follows me everywhere; it’s even part of my FetLife nickname – Benji269. Anyway, today I’m supposed to tell you something about myself and not shock you so much that you don’t come back again. Snickers – yeah right.
Well, here we go –
It was late – or early, depending on your perspective. I lay enveloped in a cocoon of bliss, with arms and legs wrapped around Zena, my customized body pillow – sleeping like an innocent baby.
I dreamed of sugar, spice and lusty battles with me, Zena, Gabrielle and myself against hordes of half-naked Amazon women. As you might expect, I was determined to prevail and satisfy all of the glutinous shrews undulating before me, so I plowed into the Amazons again and again – I would not be denied. Zena was in the saddle and Gabrielle was riding shotgun. Suddenly, I felt something wet and warm slither into my consciousness, followed by mystical hands stroking my imagination with urgency – Jezebel. Oh no, not again – not NOW.
Jezebel is my Muse and she doesn’t like to share me, not even with sleep. I refused to wake up, Zena’s strong legs held me tight. Unfortunately, Jezebel knows how to get my ‘full’ attention and in minutes the marauding horde of scantily clad Amazon women, along with Zena and Gabby had vanished in a cloud of aching desperation – mine.
My eyes snapped open and the glowing hands of my alarm clock told me it was 3:00am – the ass crack of dawn. At least she was consistent.
“Jezebel, WTF – why did you wake me up this time? I want you to know this is getting really tiresome, not to mention your timing sucks and not in a good way”
Jez purred and kept stroking my imagination. “I’ve got an idea for your 69 Shades of Smut Blog post and I couldn’t wait to tell you about it.”
“Gggggghhhr! You couldn’t wait until I finished with Zena and the Amazons?”
In my mind, Jezebel sounds like a cross between Halle Berry and Jenna Jameson. “No Benji baby, this was too good to wait, we need to jump on this now.”
I sighed. “Ok, what is this great idea of yours?”
“I’m going to interview you.”
“I ask the questions and you answer them,” she said slowly, as if speaking to a small child.
“Oh – ok, that will work. Let’s hurry up and do it, Zena is waiting for me.”
She snorted. “Yeah – right”
Two minutes later, I was seated at my desk –
“Benji relax, this won’t hurt, just a few questions to give the readers a little taste of what you have to offer”
I choked back a growl. “Sure Jez, no problem. I wasn’t doing anything important, except trying to sleep.”
“Stop being difficult. Now, tell our readers when in the day/night do you write and how long per day?
“Grrrgghhrr – I write best in the morning because my wicked Muse wakes me up in the middle of the night. She likes to whisper new story ideas in my ear and those ideas are freshest in my mind early in the morning. You can find out more about Jezebel by clicking on the embedded link in her name.”
“Oh Benji, I love it when you kiss me on my ego. So, in an industry dominated by women, how do you handle the pressure? Hmm, now that I think about it, you’re the only male member of this 69 Shades of Smut blog.”
I smiled in my mind. “Yes, women dominate the industry and I must admit they’re damn good at it, but I honestly don’t feel any pressure. I love women; they are a gift from the Universe. I believe the glory of Life is in its infinite diversity and in the ways; our differences combine to create meaning and beauty. I realize I can learn a lot from women writers about how to give my characters more depth and breath.”
“Hmm, good answer. Tell us about your latest book Naughty Hot Shots – Booty Call?”
“I co-authored the Booty Call with the talented Ms. Michelle Chatton. It’s a story about a beautiful, full-figured woman who decides to celebrate her divorce becoming final and her birthday, by making a Booty Call to a couple of male friends. She wants to have a MMF ménage to celebrate and her two friends, Marcus and Winston are only too happy to oblige.”
“Oh Benji, you’re doing good. Now tell us, what is one thing you’ve always wanted to do but haven’t yet?
“Ok, this is kind of a secret and I really don’t want it spread all over the internet, so I’m counting on you to keep it on the QT. I’ve decided that I want to experience a D/s relationship – with me as the big D. Ssshh – it’s a secret. Did I really just say that?”
Jez winked at me and her wicked smile gave me chills. “Alright Benji, one last question and this is the most important one. What would we find under your bed?”
“Hold on a minute while I take a look. Hmm, oooh, my-my. Well lookie at what I found. A jar of peanut butter( creamy ), a $100 bill( Great, she said she’d left me a tip ), a spray bottle of Swiss Navy lube( great stuff ), two pair of panties, a flogger, a pair of handcuffs and an extra large bottle of coconut oil.” *Gawd, I need a new maid*
“Benji, who uses coconut oil?”
“That’s it, interview over, I’m going back to bed – Zena and the Amazons are waiting for me. Goodnight Jez.”
“Goodnight Benji – Smooches.”
