Like A Myth, By Circlet Press
I just added an image of this cover of the book "Like A Myth", published by Circlet Press, to my sidebar. My story "Mud Licker" appears in the book. The sidebar image links to the PDF version of the book. There is also an E-reader version, which is linked in my old post. Here's the link to the post to save you the time and trouble of finding it. Check out that post for an excerpt and links to both ways to buy and read the book.

Does Your Pet Watch You While You Have Sex?
by Elizabeth Black
Two nights ago, one of my cats chewed through the cord of my favorite vibrator. I am not pleased!
I was in bed, unable to sleep, and my husband was snoring next to me. What I needed was my Rabbit Pearl vibrator to play with and then I could finally fall asleep.
I reached into the little drawer on my headboard to get the vibrator, but it wasn't there. That was when I saw the chewed wire. I reached up onto the headboard, and there was the vibrator, now in two pieces thanks to Lucky, The Cat Who Can Do No Wrong.
I showed the vibrator to my husband the next day, and he said he can fix it for me. I hope he does that soon since my vibrator is my friend. This incident made me think about other incidents involving pets giving their opinion of your sex life. Don't you just hate the scrutiny?
I had one cat named Koala (the Siamese pictured above, with black and white Oreo) who liked to watch me in the act. Smartest cat I have ever seen, and very opinionated. So my husband and I would be going at it in bed, and I’m lying there with my legs around his hips, eyes closed, really getting into it, and I open my eyes.
Staring at me from a spot directly over my head from his spot on the headboard is Koala, his head bobbing up and down as he watches us have sex. It is not easy to concentrate on having an orgasm when a cat is staring you down while you go at it.
Pets that get involved in your sex life aren't always amusing. I read an article about a London woman who learned the hard way. Her boyfriend's African grey parrot squawked "I love you, Gary" while she sat on the couch with him.
There was one big problem. Her boyfriend's name was Chris.
That was the moment Chris found out his girlfriend had been cheating on him with a bloke named Gary. She had moaned Gary's name so often while shagging him that the bird picked up on the cue, and announced his name for all to hear. The bird even mimicked her voice. Sadly, Chris had to let the bird go because hearing it call for his girlfriend's lover in her voice was very painful, especially after they broke up.
I've heard of people who get their pets involved in "child" custody disputes, and I've written about those kinds of incidents n my column before, but having pets watch you while you do The Nasty is a bit more disconcerting.
Still, I think it's a great ice breaker when you discover your cat scrutinizing your sex play as if it’s about to hold up a card giving you a rating of 9 (or 6, if the cat is a Russian Blue).

I'm at the Deadly Vixens Blog today, talking about my love for unusual paranormal creatures.

"Mud Licker" will appear in the Circlet Press anthology "Like A Myth", to be released in 2009.
Leave a comment and get a chance to win a copy of "Monster Mash", an anthology of short erotic stories published by Whiskey Creek Press Torrid. My stories "Sweet Spot" and "The Face In The Mirror" appear in that book. YOU MUST LEAVE YOUR COMMENT AT THE DEADLY VIXENS BLOG TODAY, DECEMBER 18, 2008, TO BE ELIGIBLE.
Here's the linky goodness:
Update December 19, 2008: Here's an excerpt from "Mud Licker", which is a paranormal erotica tale based on Japanese folklore. The creature in question is a squat red thing that cleans bathrooms with its two foot long tongue. Imagine what else that tongue is good for, and you have my story.
I found many paranormal creatures from folklore that were much more interesting than the usual vamps and werewolves. Asian creatures (esp. Japanese) really caught my attention. I will definitely look more into unusual folklore for story ideas in the future.
Here is an excerpt from "Mud Licker", which is now available for sale. Buy links are at the top of this post.

Babeland - Afterglow Candle
I love massage oils, and I've heard of massage candles, but I have never used one before. So when I had a chance to review Babeland's Afterglow Candle, I couldn't resist. It goes well with the rest of my candle collection. I have candles of voudou goddesses I call my Santeria candles, and I light them all the time. They came in very handy when the power went out during a storm recently.
The Afterglow Candle is a nice votive-sized candle, and it comes with its own very classy box of black matches with white tips, and a fab brush for spreading the oil on yourself or your partner. The candle lit without a problem, and it burned very evenly, which is important when you are talking about candles.
You get four scents: Fig Leaf, Bourbon, Pink Lotus, and Black Currant. I received Pink Lotus, and I love it! It's so delicate and subtle. Black Currant was out of stock, and that one would have been my second choice. I love Asian scents. Pink Lotus reminds me of the Japanese stick incense that I burn on occasion. My two favorites are White Cloud and Kyoto Cherry Blossom. They are as delicate and subtle as Pink Lotus.
I was happy to see that I didn't have to use a lot of the massage oil to do the job properly. My husband and I like to watch movies and TV while giving each other hand and foot massages. After typing and writing articles all day, my shoulders hurt. I also love foot rubs. My husband has arthritis in his hands, which is why I wanted this Afterglow Candle in the first place. The oil was not greasy, and it absorbed into the skin very easily. We didn't feel like we needed a shower after using it. And it glided on oh so well! I massaged away the ache in his hands, and he rubbed my arches until I was putty in his hands. God, I love a good foot rub!
The warm oil in this candle lasts for a very long time, and it smells divine. I love the delicate scent of the Pink Lotus. Plus the glass candle holder works for votive lights once the massage candle is used up. I will definitely get more of these massage candles once the oil runs out. Plus they make great gifts for the holidays.
