Vulpes Libris

A collective of bibliophiles talking about books. Book Fox (vulpes libris): small bibliovorous mammal of overactive imagination and uncommonly large bookshop expenses. Habitat: anywhere the rustle of pages can be heard.

Coming soon on Vulpes Libris – Erotica Week

We were going to have an Erotica Week and then we weren’t. And then we were. And then we weren’t. But the Bookfoxes dug deep and eventually we came up with enough filthy material for a theme week. And it all started with a glowing review of Fifty Shades of Grey

Monday: Anne Brooke gets us going with her stunning article “The Secret Life of Sex Writing.”

Tuesday: We offer you another glimpse of Suhayl Saadi’s “In the Garden of Earthly Delights,” a feature he wrote for us back in 2009, in which he shines a spotlight on the erotic tale of Melanie and the snake. . .

Wednesday: On Wednesday you’d better brace yourselves because Moira (Little Miss Butter-Wouldn’t-Melt) with her scrubbed shiny face and sensible shoes is going to tell us all about the most erotic film she’s ever seen. . .

Thursday: We embrace braided hair, twitching palms and red cheeks with a guest review of Fifty Shades of Grey by E. L. James.

Friday: Posh Fox Ticky Dogge-Hare talks to author Electra Shepherd about robot porn. Yes, robot porn. We are as baffled as you.

    Honestly, I can’t wait for your take on Fifty Shades

    I think it is likely to cause some debate.

    To be honest that “glowing” has me worried.

    Me too. But I expect the comments section to be glowing red hot.

    Yep. The review itself is pretty uncontentious – coming as it does from a guest reviewer who enjoyed the books. We are, however – as Lisa says – expecting (ie: hoping – heh, heh, heh) that the comments will get lively. :mrgreen:

    I’m looking forward to the erotica week too… and I look forward to the 50 shades review having just girded my loins and started to read the books.

    Am sending Kendal Mint Cake and a St Bernard, HazelšŸ˜€

    I was expecting a much saucier pic this week, but I can see how a cute furry animal stretching can be seductive.šŸ˜‰

    Yeah, I had to change the saucy picture of a woman wearing nothing but a fox eyemask, due to the complaints. (<not the truth)

    I did actually find a great picture of a fox eyemask but couldn't use it because it wasn't listed with sharing rights, dagnammit. But the fennec fox is doing her best to look sultry.

    Thanks Hilary… have finished Book 1 so onwards and upwards. Ahem. (And already I am cured of ever, ever having a character bite their lip)

    I don’t even want to bite my own lip any more, and I’ve always enjoyed biting off dead, flaky lip skin. Another one of life’s great pleasures gone. Oh well, at least I’ve still got nail-biting and zit-picking.
