Eroticon 2019 Meet and Greet
I have been attending Eroticon since 2013 and have all the notebooks from all the sessions I have attended. I guess it is fair to say then that Eroticon has been extremely influential in my growing understanding of both my own sexuality and those around me. This has been reflected in my writing and was central to my starting an MA in Creative Writing (I am still to decide whether to continue with this).
To say that going to Eroticon is life changing is no small claim but one I make boldly as it has had a huge impact in my own life. I hope to continue that development this year and look forward to meeting old friends and making new ones.
NAME (and Twitter if you have one)
I write in an intimate, auto-ethnographic style often in the format of a private journal entry shared with others and my blog is here
I also take pictures with my phone camera, (currently Samsung Galaxy s8), my style is erotic, expressive and creative. My pictures are mostly taken on the hoof with minimum set up often in domestic or intimate setting.
I seek to show the reality of the sexual appeal and appetite of a post menopausal woman and will be paying particular attention at Eroticon this year to engage with this topic as I believe it is vitally important that we counter the old tropes and ideas about invisibility.
Tell us 3 things you are most looking forward to at Eroticon 2019

Being inspired by those who do this blogging thing so much better than me
We are creating a play list of songs for the Friday Night Meet and Greet. Nominate one song that you would like us to add to the play list and tell us why you picked that song.
If I were your girlfriend by Prince – the sexiest, kinkiest, most erotic, and deeply romantic song I know. Please play it x
What is your favourite item or book you’ve purchased so far this year?
My embroidered sheepskin slippers!
No! my new lingerie.
No! the snail filtrate body gel I bought in Vietnam… (yes really)
I think it has to be my Eroticon ticket, I procrastinated mightily over this and indulged in some very negative self talk until I gave myself a big slap and did the thing. I am now so looking forward to it of course.
You can have an unlimited supply of one thing for the rest of your life, what is it? Sushi? Scotch Tape?
Time with my M. We are LDR and sometimes the distance is really hard. Knowing that we had an unlimited supply of time together would make the distance easier.
What is your favourite quote from a movie?
‘We’ve gone on holiday by mistake..’ Far too many to choose from in this film but equal first is this .. ‘Yet again that oaf has destroyed my day.’
Withnail and I is a film I can watch over and over again.
What is your word suggestion to next years Eroticon anthology?
Complete the sentence:
very fortunate to have stumbled across this world and to be part of it.
See you all in March!
