Six Sentence Sunday: Touch of the Gods: The Wager

 
Even, Aphrodite, Goddess of Love and Beauty has a cold side to her.















“Beautiful isn't it? I can give you that life.”

“Oh?”

“Yes, all you have to do is leave that hammer branded in the dirt and claim your life. One, you could never have with the Lame God Hephaestus.”

Those uttered words, pissed me off more than I thought was possible. Yes, she was stunning, with her sun gold hair, her fantastic body, tucked sensuously into her translucent gown, but under all of that, she was a bona fide fuckwit. There was no way I was going to risk it all for a life of materials, or in all reality, suffer at the hands of Hades, because of her cheap offer. She wasn't worth it, nor was the happiness she promised.

Gettin' Freaky Friday: Have women become sexually aggressive? XXX

Remember the days when men knew everything about sex, and the woman was that naive, innocent, who barely understood her menstrual cycle? Or the times when it was too embarrassing for mom to have "the talk" with her daughter, while dad gave his son a nudey mag and called it a day? Well, I've noticed a strange, and somewhat disturbing trend.

Men are not the sexual aggressor anymore. The roles are shifting, and many marriages or relationships are suffering from sexless tragedy. And it's not because the woman has a headache anymore. I've heard from many women, read just as many articles, where they are begging their men to make love to them, but are met with excuses, which then leads to frustration, blame, and anger.

What is happening? Well, there are several explanations, such as the hormones in food, women taking on more in life and becoming the ones who "wear the pants", obesity. It's hard to really say. I know for me, I'm more sexually aggressive than my shy, introverted husband, and while I do wish he'd be a lot more crazy, I've grown accustomed to the fact that he is not. He once said to me, "Honey, do you know why men aren't the dominant race anymore? It's because women took all the fight out of us."

Is that true? Did we do that? I've heard men state that chivalry died because women killed it, but is that really a valid reason to what's happening in our society? I can't believe that's it at all. According to an article, Reasons Why A Husband Does Not Want To Have Sex With His Wife  on squidoo.com,

"The day where the man brought home the money and the women watched the children, is not the average. The male dependence by the female for protection and providing is no longer an issue. Men and women can equally take care of themselves and in some homes women have taken over the financial responsibly or are making more money than their spouse. The line of male/ female roles have become blurred directly impacting on the sexuality of men."
They list the top six reasons what could be making a relationship/marriage a sexless one. If you or anyone you know is suffering through this, maybe these suggestions will shed some light. NOTE: I'm going to just list the reasons, but post the link below for more detailed information.

Reason 6: Weight gain and unhealthy eating
Reason 5: Undiagnosed medical condition
Reason 4: He may be gay
Reason 3: He may be having an affair
Reason 2: He is no longer attracted to his you
Reason 1: He is depressed

Reasons Why A Husband Does Not Want To Have Sex With His Wife
Anpther article done by MSNBC
I know there are plenty more not on the list, such as addiction to porn, over masturbation (yes, that can happen), and low testosterone, but those are just a few to list. It's just turning into a strange coincidence to me, that this is turning into such a massive problem in a lot of partnerships. But don't give up hope! There are plenty of toys, and sometimes, aggression means throwing him down and making him take it! You know, the way those alpha males do in those books we love.

Quiet you! I promise you'll love it.

Six Sentence Sunday: Down the Yellow Brick Road: Mind Games...AGAIN! And a XXX pic included!!



Yeah, so, I keep showing snippets to my WIP Down the Yellow Brick Road: Mind Games, but please understand why. It's the second installment to Down the Yellow Brick Road: Finding Home, and my goal is to have it done by the third week of May. So here's another, and it's seven sentences...not six! I'm such a rebel!

Transfixed by the sight before her, Dorothy didn't realize Oestar came to stand behind her, placing the necklace around her neck. And it wasn't until his hand moved to gently squeeze her breast, warming them with tingles of delight, that her own moans slipped from her lips. His other hand rested on her hip, not moving, but still seared her where it touched. Toto had exchanged the flogger for a riding crop, each lash leaving a red line across Freeska's bottom. Her body was flushed with arousal, and Dorothy watched as her labia darkened and blossomed, glistening with her aromatic juices. Several more whacks to her trembling flesh, and he moved away, dropping the crop to switch it out for a....whip.

Floggers, and crops, and whips...oh my!

Gettin' Freaky Friday guest post from my friend Lorren! Delicious Recipes with a side of sex!

A good friend of mine, Lorren, was kind enough to right up a great post of some meals she's prepared. Not only are they delish, but they're also made with components that are known aphrodisiacs! Yummy and sexy. Can't go wrong there right?! So here they are. Try them out.

*******************

In the mood for something good?

But you want something that not only fills your mouth with so much satisfying taste and texture, but also has the ability to get you off.
Yet you're not the best at cooking?

Introducing an Aphrodisiac dinner!


In case you don't know.

Aphrodisiac - adj - arousing sexual desire.
According to EatSomethingSexy.com (http://www.eatsomethingsexy.com/wordpress/aphrodisiac-foods/) and Alternet.com (http://www.alternet.org/health/132846) most everything included in this meal is considered an aphrodisiac.
And even though the FDA has said there is no such thing as a true aphrodisiac, and I can't guarantee it will get you off, I'll let you decide.


So looking for a food to get you in the mood?
Look no further, this meal is it.



Summer salad with a honey vinaigrette, and garlic basil pasta with shrimp and asparagus.

What you'll need.

Summer Salad:
1 Head of lettuce
1 cup of toasted almonds chopped
1 avocado cut into chunks
1/2 cup dried apriocots sliced

Honey Vinaigrette:
2tbsp apple cider vinigar
2tbsp Olive oil
2tbsp Honey



How To

Mix all wet ingredients to make dressing
Put everything dry on top of lettuce
Drizzle with dressing
This salad is fantastic.
Light, crisp, sweet, creamy, fresh.
A perfect mixture of flavors and textures to make your taste buds wake up. 
Also everything but the lettuce is considered an aphrodisiac too, so if this salad doesn't get your blood flowing well, you must be a crypt keeper.



Next on the menu

Basil and Garlic past with Shrimp and Asparagus.
What you'll need:
1 lb aspargus
1 lb shrimp
1 bag/box of your favorite noodles
1 fresh garlic bulb
4 fresh basil leaves
4 tbsp butter
1 tbsp of that pre-chopped Garlic that you find in jars.

Lets get cooking!
 
Turn the oven on at 350*
Wrap whole garlic bulb and 1 tbsp of butter in tin foil
Place in oven cook for about 20 minutes.
Mmm roasted garlic!


Boil enough water according to the directions on the noodle package
In a metal colander put your washed asparagus and stack it on top of the boiling noodle water.
Steam your asparagus at the same time you boil your noodles. Genius!

In fry pan melt 2 tbsp butter
Add your shrimp, chopped garlic and 3 basil leaves torn.
Stir.
about 5 min if precooked, about 10 if raw and it will be all sauteed and buttery and oh so good.



Toss all together with your last tbsp of butter to increase the creamy-ness

Top with more basil and some of your roasted garlic.



Dig in and please enjoy!
I enjoyed making, eating, and then what came after ;)
Hope you do too!            



Wow, that was some seriously great suggestions and food. Now I'm hungry and a bit excited. Shall we get started on this sexy meal? I think so. Hope you enjoyed the great post. Eat, Love, Sex. That's what that movie should have been! ;-)

Just a little tidbit of info

This Friday, I'm going to have a great friend of mine doing a fun guest post about a meal she made to get you all hot and bothered. Imagine, a dinner made with foods that are ALL considered aphrodisiacs! I really can't wait.

I also wanted to let everyone know that I actually finished Touch of the Gods and have sent it out to hopefully be contracted soon! Don't you just love when you get a project complete? Anyway, here's another sexy picture for today. Just because you know?

Six Sentence Sunday: Down the Yellow Brick Road: Mind Games





Her body tightened at his words, yet she wondered if they were fueled by Freeska, considering how much they spoke on their way to her Master's home. She wasn't jealous, not by any means, as she knew Toto loved her, but she did fear he wanted more from her in the ways of submission than she was willing to give. She loved the light bondage they'd experienced together, and she often fantasized about being completely dominated, but seeing the young, shapeshifter woman gagged, and knelt before her, Dorothy wasn't sure she could let herself go to that level. To be open in such a way, allowing her body to be controlled in both pleasure and pain, while that enticed her, the very idea also scared the hell out of her. Anger replaced the heat in her body, and she moved away from T's erection, crossing her arms, then frowned down at Freeska.


“No need to feel upset for the slave. She very much enjoys her position.”

Gettin' Freaky Friday: Spice it up

Have you ever read the Kama Sutra? I have. I own it. But, even I know there are just some positions out there that aren't mentioned in the position book. Some are hotter than others. Here are a few of my favorites.

Cinnamon-Sweet with sugar, but still has a bite




Cayenne Pepper- SPICY!!!

Thoughtful Thursday: Theory of the Muse.

Muses. They are what guides us to be our most creative. Many of my author friends rely on theirs to help them through a story, but what outsiders don't know...is the Muse is the most evil, devious, little imaginary imp to ever exist in our world. My muse, for example, argues with me to write, but only when it's past midnight, so my exhaustion is not allowed. You know what we authors all wish for? We want these ladies as our Muses.


Don't they look SOOOO sweet? Well, I'm going to break down the real muses that live in our heads. And trust me when I say, they aren't pretty. For those that understand, see if you can find yours.


The Writer's Block Muse
You have to write. You're on a deadline for crying out loud! But there she is, messing with your head, and keeping you from getting anything down. She is known as Writer's Block. We've all been there with that muse. Her arms are stubbornly crossed, and no amount of bribery seems to make her budge. All you can do is wait her out until she's ready to let you have peace again.

Lazy Muse
Your to-do list is complete, giving you all the time in the world to sit back and lay down some lines! But, oh no, what's this? Your muse is napping? The stuff you're getting is just lazy slop of nothing crap? This can't be! But sadly, it is. Not only is your muse a lazy butt, you now feel no motivation at all either. Is there a such thing as a java injection? I do hope so.

The Night Owl Muse
This is the one that haunts me almost every time. Throughout the day, I'm pretty busy, but there have been times, when I had nothing to do. Was my muse anywhere to be found? Nope. But then midnight rolls around, and suddenly my muse has every idea in the book! Who cares if it's dark as sin, my eyes burn, and I just want to comforts of my mattress. I have a book to write, and he's rearing to go. Sleep's overrated anyway right?

The Rare Muse
I'm going to point out that my muse, whom I've named Sam, is very much like this. He's wicked and pushes me to write some of my best stuff. However, his drill sargeant ways can be killer when I really want to have a moment's rest. But I love him, that muse of mine, and his rarity is wanted more than anything. These muses are the rarest to have, for the very reason they are desired. Obviously, the demand is not matched the by the supply!

****
So, now, my lovelies, you know how and what drives us authors batty at night, or day, or whenever the muses decide to grace us with their presence. Hope you enjoyed my post today, and I do pray you get that rare muse when the time comes to let your creative juices flow.

It's that 7 challenge thing...yay...

I'm going to do this now, then I'll post my Thoughtful Thursday later.

So I got challenged to the Se7en Challenge and actually I was hoping someone would do it. I love these things!

So here is the deal. Go to page 7 or 77 of your manuscript. Go to the 7th line down then copy and paste the next 7 lines into your blog. Then tag 7 other people and ask them to do the same.

My 7 is from my completed manuscript Touch of the Gods: The Wager


Once “Himeros” appeared between Ares and Vanessa, I was sure he was dead on the spot. In fact, if the young god hadn't flashed her and himself out of the way, they would have both been goners, as his father blasted a god bolt from his hand. The spot in which they had stood was singed black with smoke spiraling from the center. My brother growled low in his throat, slowly stalking closer to my nephew like the dangerous predator he was. So far our strategy was not working out well.

“How dare you show your face here, boy. You have a death wish or something?”

“Uh, father, I know you have declared that you would kill me on sight, but I swear I come in peace.”

Honestly though, I have no seven to tag, so I'll just stop here. Look for my TT post later on!

Six Sentence Sunday: Sneak Peek of Down the Yellow Brick Road sequel

Sneak Peek of the second installment of Down the Yellow Brick Road: Mind Games



Her smile melted him, as it always did, and he squeezed her tightly before finally letting go to get their food. Their conversation was mostly small talk, as they were tired, and still recovering from the earlier events. Once finished, they cleaned together, then snuggled under the warmth of the sleeping bag, where he immediately pulled her body close, hardening the moment her full ass wiggled against him. The moment was probably not the most appropriate, and Toto would never put Dorothy into an uncomfortable position, but he needed to touch her, feel her body tremble when she came for him. The mark on his chest, his alpha symbol, glowed, and warmed his blood with desire. Moving his right hand up from her waist, he flicked his thumb over her nipple, smiling into her hair when he was rewarded with both the tightening of her nipple, and a throaty moan.
