Eroticon Meet & Greet

You can call me Exposing 40 if you like, but I’m just as happy with you calling me Catherine. On Twitter I’m @Exposing40

What are you hoping to get out of Eroticon 2017?
Laughing and learning! I am a social butterfly and there are so many people going who I already love and can’t wait to catch up with, plus many more I am super-excited to meet, that one of the best bits will just be hanging out with cool people. But I can’t wait for some of the sessions too!

This year’s schedule at Eroticon is pretty full on but which four sessions do you already have marked down as ones you want to attend?
I am a dyed-in-the-wool planner so the idea of winging it strikes fear into my heart. I also have eight ‘must do’ talks on my list and will miss some because of clashes…but here are my top four!

  • Sex Blogging as Feminism and Social Justice: Sarah Brynn Holliday
  • History of Erotic Writing and Obscenity in Britain: Kate Lister (and ideally the Sunday morning one too, but let’s see how many ‘one for the ditch’ wines I have on Saturday night!)
  • Undressing Disability: Emily Rose Yates
  • How to use your blog to educate: Emmeline Peaches, Formidable Femme, Hot Octopuss

Oh, and even though I don’t write erotic fiction and can’t draw to save my life I will be at Malin and Tabitha’s talks as a silent cheerleader going ‘aren’t they awesome?!’.

Tell us one thing about yourself that not many people know?
I once did a skydive with two broken arms. The arms were broken a couple of weeks earlier when I was thrown from a horse. I had got back on the horse to carry on the trek but after a couple of miles my arms really hurt.  I also once got on a horse and rolled straight off the other side, but that’s another story. These anecdotes reveal quite a lot about me…

If you made the papers, what would the headline be?
Naked woman found in a ditch wasn’t sure whether to laugh or cry.

If you could have one skill for free (I.e. without practice/time/effort) what would it be?
I would have a voice like Bonnie Tyler and would endlessly strut around MASSIVE stages singing power ballads. And there would be fireworks.

I love it when…
…the plane touches down! New country or home sweet home, both feelings are equally delightful.

Random Leg Shot

“There’ll come a point in the month where I’ll have to wheel out some random leg shots.” Me.

There are some new photos from yesterday to edit, hopefully more with this chap at some point this week, and this gorgeous woman is flying into the country just in time to get in on the February Photofest action. So I definitely haven’t lost the love for this challenge! But on this slightly fuzzy headed Monday I’ve decided to have a little breather by wheeling out a random leg shot…

Self Portrait

Me: ‘Do we need a haiku to go with your photo tomorrow?’ Imagines some dreamy words about woods and windows and castles…

19 Syllables:

For God’s sake, please don’t
Force me to write a haiku
About my own arse.

Me: ‘Hahahahahahahahahaha’

19 Syllables: ‘Am I off the hook? I don’t have to faff about with peachy, perched and folly anymore? Hooray!’

I love this woman!!

Sinful Sunday


Here is the third in a series of photos shot  over a birthday brunch and photo planning session last month. Here are the first and second posts. Most of the ideas we had that day will come to fruition in the summer (it seems we’re all terribly naughty women who just want to get naked in nature!), but the sun did come out to play that afternoon so we could get some cool indoor shots.

What I love about this shot is how the shadows accentuate Honey’s beautiful curves. Without them it would be quite a flat photo, but they draw the eye to the luscious voluptuous landscape of her body.
