The Art of Erotica

Lady Smut is in Full Bloom at Blushing Tulips

AGWDM blushing tulips logoSara could be like so many other women in their mid-30’s. She’s married to her Prince Charming, a man she describes as a bearded hipster dude with a sci-fi habit. Together, they have an adorable pudgy little baby boy.

By day, Sara works at a software company we all know. At night, she goes all-out mommy porn, reading books, watching videos, and surfing for photos.

Unlike other women like her, Sara doesn’t do this just for her enjoyment. She shares what she enjoys on her website, Blushing Tulips.

For the past two years, I’ve been enchanted with her website, and not just because she’s been so kind to share some of my erotic stories. Everything on it is so girlishly naughty. It’s the website equivalent of the woman who’s a lady on the streets and a hussy between the sheets. I just had to find out who the woman was behind this beautifully raunchy site.

How did you become an erotica fan?

Romance novels were my gateway drug into erotica. When I was a teenager I found one of my mom’s cheesy historical romance novels (you know the kind with Fabio on the cover) and stayed up all night reading it. I was captivated by the story, and let’s face it, the sex. Ever since then I’ve read anything I could get my hands on that stoked my romantic fantasies. I still read cheesy romance novels, YA romance books (I’m not above Twilight!), and all types of erotic fiction.

There aren’t many bloggers who primarily focus on publishing excerpts of other people’s books and stories on their site. How did you get the idea to do this?

When I’m reading a great steamy book, I often skip ahead to the sex scenes. I figured there had to be other people like me out there who wanted a taste of the good parts of a dirty story, then they might get sucked in and want to read the rest of the book. It’s like fiction foreplay – a little teaser that gets you wanting more. We also publish short stories in their entirety in addition to excerpts.

What kinds of stories do you look for to include on your site?

I pick stories that turn me on – and I’m a pretty mainstream kind of gal. Sure, occasionally I like a little BDSM story (thanks Fifty Shades!), but mostly I’m into situational fantasies. I love a good pool boy slathering sunscreen on his client or a meetcute in a bookstore that turns into hot sex in the stacks.

Do you find that many of the indie writers you feature on your site are as good as the ones who write for publishers?

Absolutely I believe indie authors are as good (and sometimes just as bad) as ones repped by publishers. I love the revolution taking place in the industry which has allowed so many talented writers to let their voices be heard without having agents and publishers. Thankfully, the Internet has democratized so many industries from music to publishing to porn for women. Viva la Internet!
