When in Rome by Lucy Felthouse
I've found that the longer I've been writing, the more I find inspiration in the strangest places. And
sometimes the inspiration doesn't strike me until much later. My story in Smut in the City is a perfect
example of this.
I went to Rome back in May for the first time. I fully expected to come home with some ideas for
stories, and given I needed to get my story written for Smut in the City when I got back, then that
was perfect. What I wasn't expecting, however, was for the inspiration to come from the Colosseum.
It's an absolutely awe-inspiring place, but it's so busy and crowded that getting up to anything sexy
would grant you a large audience of onlookers and possibly some time spent in an Italian jail.
But, would you believe, a metal barrier and a sign gave me an idea. The whole structure is
ancient and crumbling, but there's a particular part of it which is fenced off from the public as it is
apparently more dangerous than the rest. And it's here that I set the sex scene from my story. My
horny characters slipped past the warning barrier and had some kinky fun with thousands of people
just feet away from them.
And voila, Within the Crumbling Walls was born. Now, I know my ideas are sparked by unusual
things, but I think a metal barrier has got to be the strangest.
From the stifling heat of the London Underground to the crumbling walls of Rome’s Colosseum, Smut in the City has it all. Whatever your interpretation of sultry urban sex, there’s something nestling between the covers for you. Lusty couples, horny office workers, hunky bakers and gardeners, tourists and the Mafia are portrayed for your titillation in this exciting collection of stories
from erotica’s finest authors.
