Why I could never be a nun....

I love smut! I love reading it. I love writing it. Sometimes I roll around naked in it. Not really. But I have been known to sleep with a dirty book a time or two. Having that hard spine next to me really gets me all hot and bothered. :D 

I'm not really sure when I first started loving smut. Perhaps it was that night at the dinner table when I sat on that ridiculous pine cone. No, it was more of a gradual thing. But once I was hooked, I was hooked beyond all reason. I even earned the title ®Smutaholic. I might have given myself that title. I still need to make a t-shirt with that on it. *adds to to-do list* Why do I love smut so much, you ask? Because I am a single woman and I have needs. Because it makes me feel all warm and tingly inside. Because smut is yummy. I don't read trashy stuff. I prefer my smut to have a story. I even enjoy a little romantic fluff with my smut. Smuff, if you will. 

Now, I know you're all wondering when I started writing smut. Well, I can't give you an exact date on that either (May 20, 2008). I wanted to push myself outside of my comfort zone so I wrote a short story with just a splash of naughtiness. It was like a drug for me. Since then, nearly every story I've written has the smutty. It's not that I can't write a story without it. I can even read a story without it, but when Mr. Sexy and Miss Hot Stuff have their happily ever after, I would like a little bow-chicka-wow-wow to tie things up in a neat little, delicious package. 

There are a few go-to authors on my list when I'm needing a smut fix. Numbers one and two are Margaret Ethridge and Maggie Wells. I'm a lucky girl because I happen to be friends with them, and sometimes I get a sneak peek at the hotness before it winds up in my new favourite book. Beth Kery is another favourite. I've heard good things about Evelyn Jules too. Oops. Where did that come from? ;)

So, friends, tell me, do you enjoy a side of smut with your story? Or do you prefer a side of story with your smut? Who are your favourite smut authors? *gets pen ready*

  1. Yes I love my smut but I need a great story to go with it. In other words, I don't usually pick up a book because it is smutty but rather if the story is awesome and there is smut, it's like an uber bonus.
    I like my smut in all different ways. For instance, in historicals I love exciting build up their first time.
    I also flip around with my favourite type of smut. Sometimes I love menage and then other times I love M/M. It is awesome that there is a so much out there to discover and read.

    I too love Maggie Wells and Margaret Ethridge. Great choices!
    I also love Shayla Black, Sophie Oak, Kallyspo Masters, I loved Fifty Shades by E.L. James, Lauren Dane, Lorelei James and Brynn Paulin. Kimberly Zant and Selena Kitt for the smuttiest of them all.

    I read plenty of books where the heat level is low but I do enjoy when there is smut action included.

  2. I knew you'd have plenty to say on this subject, Michelle! :) Thanks for weighing in, and thank you for all the recommendations! I'm with you. The story has to be there in order for me to enjoy the smut. But I'm a traditional smut kinda girl. The male/female kind. ;)

  3. I'm definitely a smuff kind of girl. I need the story first then if there is smut that's an added treat. I like the sweet smut.

    1. I think I knew this about you, Laurie. ;) We need a short form for sweet smut. Maybe smeet? Or swut? I'll keep working on that....

  4. You like me! You really like me!

    Ha! I can't wait for the release of Blind Faith. The world is in for a treat, my friend!

    1. :D How did you guess? I can't wait for the release either! Thanks for stopping by, Margaret! :*
