Organ Thursday

I need a cock.

Hmm…perhaps that statement demands clarification. What I should have said is that I need a strap-on harness and dildo set.

Can you believe I don’t already own one of these bad boys? Not for lack of desire—I’ve always had a strong craving to fuck my partners—but until now, I’ve never had a partner who was receptive to the idea of being fucked up the ass.

And now you’re asking yourself, “Doesn’t Giselle have a girlfriend? Haven’t we skipped a step, jumping straight to ass-fucking?”

Remember that my Sweet is a trans woman, so we’re limited when it comes to orifices. From her perspective, anal sex can’t begin to compare to her conception of how it would feel to acquire a pussy and get it fucked. Penis/dildo-in-vagina sex is in a class all its own, to her. She dreams about it, fantasizes of it—hell, we both do—but that’s not where we’re at. For the time being, she’s happy to accommodate my desire to screw her the only way I can.

So begins my online shopping expedition. Here’s what I’m looking for in a product:

a) Good value for the money always tops my list. Who wants to spend money hand over fist (oooh…hands and fists…dirty…) on an inferior product when you can usually get a pretty reliable toy at a reasonable price?

b) A harness that’s not going to break the first time we use it. The straps on some harnesses out there look pretty flimsy. I’d hate to get all excited only to break my new toy fresh from the box. (hmmm…also dirty…or am I just super-horny today and seeing double-entendres everywhere?)

c) A dildo that won’t send Sweet running out the door. I’m talking size, here. She’s never dabbled in anal play, so a giant toy is going to freak her out. Better to start small and get her adjusted to the idea and the feel of having something rammed up her backside.

d) I hate to say it—being one of those “looks don’t matter” feminist types—but I want a set that looks reasonably attractive. No harnesses that look like granny panties, please. As for the dong…nothing too realistic. Sweet likes to remind me that she’s not into guys, so no sense in jarring her with a big veiny cock.

e) While I’m spending money, it’s time for some new lube. Add a good bottle of anal lube to the shopping list to ease along the proceedings.

Happy Shopping to all you fine people out there on this lovely Organ Thursday*
Hugs,
Giselle Renarde
Canada just got hotter!

*Devout CBC Radio Two listeners will remember where that term comes from. No offense, Jurgen Petrenko, but I was glad to see an end to that segment. It’s not you, it’s me. I never did like organ music.

You Win Some, You Lose Some


Kandinsky's Shirt Button, my transgender romance short, has been reviewed by Rainbow Reviews.

It scored two stars out of five. *whimper*

And you're asking, "Why is she announcing this?" A negative review is no fun, but there's no sense in pretending it never happened. Apart from that, the review is wonderfully-written.

It can be quite a challenge, as an author, to look at your work from outside of the work itself. When I'm composing a story, I am fully immersed in the world of that story. I am with the characters. I am the characters. I'm not their analyst. I don't always know why they do what they do; it's just who they are.

From that perspective, reviews are quite illuminating and I'm always indebted to reviewers for sharing their honest opinions of my work. They have the ability to view my stories in a way I can't: objectively, from outside the characters' world.

All I can say is, "Thank you, Rainbow Reviews!" (and mention that last year Rainbow Reviews gave my short story The Regular from the Torquere anthology LOVE BITES a marvelous review...)

Coming Together: Against the Odds

Happy Victoria Day!

As I listen to the fireworks igniting across the street, I reflect upon everything we have to celebrate. In and amongst the long list I'm compiling in my mind is the fact that today is a special release day!

Today is the day Coming Together: Against the Odds becomes available! If you're a print anthology lover, you'll have to wait until June, but you can get your hands on the e-book today.

I'm a proud contributor to three volumes in the Coming Together series, and I'm delighted that the fabulous Alessia Brio selected my poem Will She Kiss Me? to open the collection.

About Coming Together: Against the Odds...

All behavior is communication. The trick is to figure out just what it's saying. No behavior communicates as clearly or on as many levels as sex. All the physical and emotional senses are engaged. Add the element of intrigue, and the intellect is engaged as well.

Phaze Books, in partnership with editor, Alessia Brio, is proud to announce the release of Coming Together: Against the Odds, a collection of erotic fiction with a mystery theme, with an introduction written by the one & only Maxim Jakubowski.

All proceeds from the sale of this special anthology will benefit Autism Speaks.

FREE READ! The Maelstrom by Giselle Renarde

His words were my Maelstrom,
always pulling, pulling, pulling...
Maybe you've read a story or two from my Lawrence and Audrey series, about a professorial older man and his much younger mistress. If you haven't, you are in luck today! My erotic, dark, psychological story THE MAELSTROM is available to read for free at THE EROTIC WOMAN!

THE MAELSTROM is an erotic vignette, opening up Audrey and Lawrence's world to us. We listen to them as they lie together, discussing and analyzing their dreams, and we wonder how well they know each other...and themselves.
Before I met you, I dreamed every night. In my dream, I was at sea aboard a small vessel approaching a Maelstrom, like in the story by Poe. I was in a panic because the winds were picking up and I could see the whirlpools up ahead. There was no chance of survival once I reached them, I knew, and my heart was racing. When I looked into that swirling black water, I knew I was going to die and a feeling of utter contentment came over me. I was free.
Read THE MAELSTROM now at The Erotic Woman.

Love and Hugs,
Giselle Renarde
