Sweet & Rough: Sixteen Stories of Queer Smut by Sinclair Sexsmith

I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again, Sinclair Sexsmith is one of the few people I know of who can both write succinct political and educational essays and with the same aplomb write raw hot erotica that makes you both think and pull your pants down at your screen or bookshelf.

The first few stories in Sinclair’s newest release, Sweet & Rough: Sixteen Stories of Queer Smut, were familiar. I’ve read them on Sinclair’s website SugarButch, but I indulged and read them again. They were just as hot and complicated as I remembered. Sinclair, as narrator or character, is hot, sensitive, thoughtful, forceful, passionate, and sexy. As a top and a service top and many other more ambitious power positions, I read so many thought processes that were so familiar it was scary.

Sitting next to a sexy woman and realizing that although I thought I picked her up, she had been setting up the situation for the start and I had happily fallen into her web. Negotiating on the fly something dirty and just a little bad, like sex in the bathroom of a club or a hook up with someone I’ve known for years but never got a chance to be with. The complexities and intimacies of sex parts, sex toys, sex complications, and kink.

Every situation in this collection of stories is packed with vivid details, sometimes shockingly realistic sex, and beautiful turns of phrases and poetic lasciviousness.

As the book goes on I found lots of new tales, many of which I had never read. They had me squirming as I held my Kindle close on the subway and blushing as I paged through them at lunch at work.

I’m not the only one who thinks this collection is great though. Rachel Kramer Bussel, editor of The Big Book of Orgasms and a billion other anthologies said, “Sweet and Rough is the perfect title for this collection of raw, queer, kinky and passionate erotica that will appeal to smut connoisseurs as well as new readers looking for something hot and titillating to keep them up at night.”

Dr. Charlie Glickman, of Make Sex Better, said “There are very few erotic writers who consistently capture my attention and admiration. John Preston did. So does Carol Queen. And I’ve added Sinclair Sexsmith to that list.”

I don’t do many (or any!) reviews anymore, but I just had to talk about this collection, since I’ve known Sinclair forever and have been waiting for a big ebook of their work. I can honestly say it was well worth the weight.

Review – The Maven

544There are a lot of things in my life that can use improvement, I freely admit this. One thing, dare I say the only thing, in my life that I thought I had perfected it was masturbation.

Unlike many women I know most men have it down pat. Sure the female sex blogging community are usually able to get themselves off easily, but a lot of girls I know have trouble. Every guy I know can make themselves come in a good minute and a half. Why would we need to masturbatory toy?

Well, there is the prostate, given, but that is a whole different catagory. There are a variety of new sensation that a dude can explore, but we surely don’t need help with the actual jerking off part, do we?

I’m a “masturbator” n00b, obviously. I’ve never used a sleeve of any kind. No fleshlight for me. What do I need with that?

Enter, The Maven. No seriously, enter one, they rock.

I’d never heard of elastomer, but apparently is it this silky cushy soft polymer that is phthalate-free and hypoallergenic. It’s porous, so it’s pretty much just a toy for one… though I’m not sure why you would want to share it unless you were putting on a show for someone.

I like the material, but it sort of never gets totally dry once you use lube and wash it off. It is very easy to clean, though. You just use it and then flip it inside out and wash it with soap and water. I keep it wrapped in paper towels between uses.

I use a little Astroglide, but any water based lube will do.

Ok, so how does it feel? Well, it certainly isn’t as good as sex, but it is better than your hand. The softness is interesting, like a blow job from someone with soft lips. That sounded a lot creepier than I wanted it to.

We are men, we don’t need pretty adjectives. The thing is affordable as sex toys go and it lasts a long time and it feel really good and it also reduces cleanup. You use it and then you take it to the bathroom and turn it inside out and wash it out. Fun!

I put a little dress on mine and I am planning on introducing it to my mom soon.

The Maven is not going to change your life, but it may change the way you masturbate or at least give you an interesting change of pace.

Three and a half stars!

Not a Review, a Story about Condoms

I feel like I need to talk about something I found a month ago that has changed my sex life more than anything in the last ten years.

The right condom.

I never really had a big problem with condoms. They were just a thing I had to used unless I was in a serious monogamous relationship and my partner was on some form of birth control. I thought I was buying good ones. I got various Trojans, usually just the lubricated ones in the blue package. I never really thought about it, which come to think of it was odd since I think about everything else having to do with sex far too much.

In the past I had a few experiences where I tried to put on a condom and it just didn’t work. It got stuck half way on and wouldn’t roll anymore. Then I try and pull at it, hold the tip, roll it back a little and then try again. By then my hands are covered in lube and my erection is withering.

I curse. I makeout a little, fool around and get out of my head. I try a new one, but now the pressure is on.

For some reason in the last few months this started happening a lot more. Also a few times I noticed that the condom felt way tighter on my cock, especially around the middle. It got a little painful sometimes.

Now, I have a average sized cock. It is normal and I am happy with it. I have been told it is a little thick but I don’t think it is girthy enough to need some kind of extra large condom. Still these problems were getting annoying so I decided to try a few new ones.

I tried the Trojan Extra Sensitive and liked that one even less than the regular kind. I tried a regular lubricated Lifestyle, which felt very similarly to the Trojan and I even tried a non latex condom when I was with a girl who was allergic to latex and didn’t like that one at all.

So I did a little research. I went on a few sites that had condom reviews. I found that Durex seemed to test very well, especially the Extra Sensitive and the Love varieties.

I couldn’t find the Love so I settled on the Extra Sensitive. From the first go I found they slipped on far more easily that any other I have used. The sex was way better, smoother, it felt more like bareback sex. Also my partners seemed to get less sore and these condoms didn’t smell like latex.

I am so excited I ordered a hundred of the Durex Love condoms.

These new condoms combined with the bottle of Sliquid I got at the calendar party have made for a new world of sex. I swear the sex has been so good I haven’t even had any time to tie anyone up!

Review – Silver Bullet

The Silver Bullet.

For $12.95 how can you go wrong with this little extremely portable vibe? It just works for simple clitoral stimulation. It is portable. It takes AA batteries.

I sort of think what would make it perfect was if it were metal, not just metal looking plastic. It would be easier to clean and last forever.

Still it is a good go to toy and perfect for travel and secret sneaky fun.

I give the The Silver Bullet three out of five stars, because although it works well it really isn’t anything to write home about.

Review: Climax Bursts Anal Lube

Climax Bursts Anal Lube

To be frank, I really seem to have bad luck with fucking girls in the ass. A couple have said it has to do with my girth, but really I don’t think my cock is that thick. I’ve always heard the keys are getting the girl (or boy) to relax, taking it slow, and lube lube lube.

Enter Climax Bursts Anal Lube. It is a slippery watery lube that is distinctly not oily. The little bubbles of vitamin E give it a slightly gritty feel, but only for a second until the bubbles burst.

I still haven’t had that much anal sex, but it certainly has helped paying around back there. More so than other lubes I have seen with the possible exception of Sliquid.

I give it four out of five stars.
