Only 2 species have sex for fun!

Can you believe this? Out of all the living creatures on the planet, only 2 species have sex for fun.

So for the first species did you say no brainer? I think that one is easy - human beings. And the second species?

Did you think apes? Well, that's not right. What is the smartest species second to man?

Give up?

Dolphins! Yup. Flipper has sex for the sheer pleasure of it. Go figure.

Sally:), who wants to know how THEY know this.

The dangers of writing two books at the same time

The danger is calling your hero by the wrong name which I just did. I try to stick to writing one book at a time, but once in a while two books will begin to compete with each other as the two I'm currently writing.

One is the book in Ci's and my new Hussies series and the other is the second book in a gargoyle series I'm starting. Yes, I listened to your letters (thank you for them). Maybe these books are competing for attention because one is set in one of my favorite places and time periods - Scotland 536 AD and the other one is set in my favorite city - Savannah, Ga.

Or maybe it is because the heroes are just so powerful and demanding. I don't know but I feel like a torn lover. LOL. Okay... Back to the Hussies series one. It has a pressing deadline. Trying to ignore the Scottish brogue and sexy chuckling. ERRRR...

Book Club Discussion Today

Ci came up with the idea for a book discussion and today is the first one. She also selected my book, Last Resort. This was such a surprise to me, but I'm happy to have the vampire book discussed. (g)

If you want to get in on the book club discussions, just join our list.

I'll be giving away some prizes today along with a book or two.

The discussion begins at 4 pm EST and will last until 7 pm est.

Hope to see you there.

Putting the O in Blow

I found the following article :

"New trend in bachelorette parties includes 'oral pleasure' education" by TERRI THEODORE in The Canadian Press, quite interesting

July 22, 2007

There's an emerging trend in bachelorette parties that is far from a tea-and-crumpets celebration.

In fact, the only hot tea involved is as a training prop in an educational session in Vera Zyla's oral pleasure seminar.

More and more women are booking private, pre-wedding seminars through Zyla's Vancouver store, The Art of Loving, to learn the how-tos of oral sex, having a good orgasm and stripping for your lover.

She has hosted dozens of parties for women ranging from virgins to the more experienced.

The course on oral sex techniques seems to be one of the most popular.

"I believe it's because there are a number of challenges that are presented," she said.

"I ask these women in class...'Why do you think women find it so challenging,' and they start sharing."

Zyla said the women are simply looking for strategies to be better at it and to add it to their repertoire, hoping to use it to prolong a marriage.

"If you have meat and potatoes for dinner every night, you're going to get bored of that. If you make sex the same way day in, day out it's going to get predictable. You need to mix it up."

Zyla said at first, some women are nervous about attending, but a few quips from the crowd can make the night hilarious.

"They tend to turn it into a little wine and cheese thing...everybody gets loosened up. It's a really fun evening."

Anna Von Frances, 28, took a similar oral sex education seminar in Toronto and thinks more women should do the same.

"It's fun to get together with your girlfriends and laugh about a taboo subject, then find out it's not all that taboo."

She said the course helped her get familiar with the male anatomy.

"I don't think that women really get any proper education about that kind of stuff," she said. "You don't ask your mom about how to give a great blow job."

Von Frances admitted she was nervous about sitting in a room with a bunch of her girlfriends learning to put a condom-clad banana in her mouth.

But she said it was nothing like that.

"(The instructor) did a lot of hand-outs about where everything's located on a man's member, how sensitive it really is."

"It was a lot of myth busting."

Zyla demonstrates to her classes with a prop and notes accessories women can buy or make at home.

"For example they could make a hot drink and put it in a thermos...then leave the hot liquid in your mouth, so your mouth is really toasty warm."

Zyla said a bridesmaid recently organized a oral sex seminar for a virgin bride.

"She said 'Eww I'm not doing that,' and all her friends said 'Oh yes you are," she laughed.

Von Frances says the course left her "super empowered" and improved her sex life "100 per cent."

"I'm sure if you interviewed my boyfriend he would say he's glad I did it."

She believes women like the courses because it opens communication with their lover.

Zyla said women outnumber men 10 to one at the 20 or so sex education seminars she holds at her store.

"I think women are somewhat more open to better their skills, they talk openly more about it," she said. "There's a desire to want to please their lover and offer something delicious."

The T-shirt Saga & My Beloved

I got the best surprise last week. A parcel arrived from Ellora's Cave and inside was a t-shirt. And not just any t-shirt! This has the cover of Gift of the Goddess screen-printed on it in full glorious colour!

I actually got a bit teary at the sight of it. *sniffle* Because it's an XL (and I'm not), I'm wearing it as nightie. So I'm sleeping with Mr Gorgeous. *sigh* Two Mr Gorgeouses I guess, if I count My Beloved. (Who is an XL.)

In fact, My Beloved even consented to model the t-shirt for your pleasure. Wasn't that lovely of him, especially as he's really very shy...

Bus stop and breasts

A German bus driver demonstrated exemplary concern for his passengers' safety when he ordered a 20-year-old sales clerk to shift her mammary assets or vacate the vehicle, Bild reports.

A shocked Debora C of Lindau recounted: "Suddenly he stopped the bus. He opened the door and shouted at me 'Your cleavage is distracting me every time I look into my mirror and I can't concentrate on the traffic. If you don't sit somewhere else, I'm going to have to throw you off the bus.'"

Debora duly relocated her jubs to a less life-threatening location, but admitted she'd been "humiliated" by the ordeal.

The bus company, meanwhile, defended its employee, offering: "The bus driver is allowed to do that and he did the right thing. A bus driver cannot be distracted because it's a danger to the safety of all the passengers."

Well, from what I saw her breasts were not traffic stopping - she's maybe a 34B. Fortunately for that drive Sally didn't get on with a low cut top showing serious cleavage. His eyes would have popped out of his head and today we WOULD be reading about the breasts that wrecked a bus!!

Romantic moments to remember

As a single mom, I bought my first home on my own in the historic district of my home town. This was a big accomplishment for me and there was little to no traffic through this area after midnight. No need for anyone to be cruising through unless going to their home.

One of the most romantic moments when my husband and I were first dating was arrivng at my home around 2 am after attending a party. It was late April and the night was soft with a gentle breeze - very springlike.

Dressed in my evening dress and my husband in his black suit, I started for the door when he spun me around and into his arms. Before I knew what was happening, he began to waltz me down the middle of street all the way to the corner, all the while, humming softly in my ear.

This was the most romantic moment I think I've ever had.

What was yours?

Food and Sex Factoids

But not how you may think I mean it.

I ran across some articles about how and why certain foods were invented. There were two that I found...Why don't I just tell you? I mean, where have I been that I didn't know these factoids?

Kellogg invented cornflakes because he wanted to create a diet he felt would curb the sex drive. I'm serious! He and many others during his time thought masturbation was evil and wicked and he was determined to invent a food to stop it!

For whatever reason, he thought cornflakes were the ticket because they were meatless or some other unfounded science he was practicing. I was laughing too hard to finish the explanation of why he thought it would work.

The mid-19th century guys seemed pretty obsessed with sex, but not like modern men. They were trying to stop others from having so much of it. (ah... what's wrong with this picture aside from being abbynormal?)

And then there was Dr. Graham also his competitor, who claimed his latest creation - Graham Crackers succeeded where Kellogg's failed. Yeah, right.

And so we have two great food stuffs, but fortunately they did not accomplish said missions. I'm sure there were a lot of folks refusing to buy those two products.

Naturally, there was an opposing faction who thought sex was great and everyone needed more of it. And then there was the physician who believed hysteria in women was caused from a lack of sex. Oh yeah, I think that would do it.

So one doctor began... ahem...treating women in his office assisting them in well... you know... having orgasms. I am serious, stop your laughing!

He not only assisted his patients, he gave speeches at conferences on how to treat these female patients.

Finally... Finally... one very smart doctor created the vibrator so women could treat themselves at home.

Want to hit those high notes?

Well here you go :)

A musical condom designed to play louder and faster as lovers reach a climax is to go on sale in Ukraine.

Grigoriy Chausovsky, from Zaporozhye, said his condoms came fitted with a special sensor that registers when the condom is put on.

It transmits a signal to a miniature speaker in the base of the condom which play a melody.
He told local media: "As the sex becomes more passionate, it registers the increased speed of the movements and plays the melody faster and louder."
hmmmmmm.............. gives a whole new meaning to "Ring my Bell"

I finished, I finished! Did I say I FINISHED?!

I've finished the book I've been working on for months. YAYYYYYYY!!!!!!

Do you think I might be happy? *grin* Getting closer and closer to the end has been driving me craaazy and now it's over.

It's the weirdest feeling actually. I always finish up feeling so close to my characters that I can hardly bear to give them up. I simply loved Griff and Fort. What beautiful men. *sigh* So sexy, so masculine, they made me breathless on a regular basis. It's hard to type when your fingers are all shaky, but I managed. For you, dears. *smile*

So now it's off to my wonderful editor. Hope to have a release date soon. Ohboy,ohboy,ohboy... Watch for excerpts in my newsletter, my website and on MySpace. Here's the gist of it.

Oh, and Mirry, Jan and Fledge from Tailspin make a number of cameo appearances. I loved catching up with them!

Denise Rossetti
Book 3 in the Phoenix Rising series.

A hard-bitten mercenary who’s had a gutful of mud and blood and death, Fortitude McLaren joins the Ten Nations Fair as a roustabout. Tough, cold and competent, he’s shocked and angered by the depth of his hunger for Griff, a circus tumbler and acrobat. Brought up in the conservative, bigoted society of the Straight Church, Fort has always regarded manlove with contempt and indifference. Not for him. Never for him.

Athletic, cocky and single-minded about he wants, Griff sets about getting it. Fort fights with everything in him, but Griff reaches him in a way no one else has ever done. It’s not just his strong, supple body. Fort is irresistibly drawn by the openhearted friendship the other man gives so freely.

Fort may have found a friend, but the cruel memories of his childhood are the greatest enemy of all. Love will be impossible unless he can win the battle within. And to do that, he must risk everything he is and everything he's ever believed in.

Jasmine and Antonio

Jasmine was like any other women in her late thirties. She was savvy to the world of men so when she met Antonio, she should have noticed the way he moved in on her right off, but she was distracted by his charm. Oh so charming and his looks. Tall dark and handsome had been coined to sum him up.

And so when she fell—it was hard and fast. The two of them were inseparable. She even missed work and soon found herself without a job, but she didn’t care. She was in love and it was like a drug. The more she had, the more she wanted. Antonio convinced her to move in with him. It was a newly renovated condo in the historic district of Savannah and all seemed to be going well, even the lack of being gainfully employed because Antonio was beyond well off, he was downright wealthy and assured Jasmine there was never any need for worry.

And so it was the two love birds lived a fun and wild nightlife and slept during the day. Before long Jasmine’s friends were talking. Something had happened to her. There was a look about her. Pale and rather frail at times and then other times she seemed very strong and almost superhuman.

The rumors eventually came back to her but Jasmine just smiled and her typical fashion shrugged off the silly gossip and married her handsome Antonio in a midnight service. And yes, there were rumors about the unconventional ceremony, talk of vampires and the entire city buzzed with the latest guess what whenever it came to the newly weds.

And then one day…Jasmine simply disappeared and Antonio had vanished with her. So what happened to them? You fill in the ending…

From duds to dudes

This struck me as hilarious. First you throw in a load of dirty duds, then you hurry over for a load of dirty dudes!

Former Hollywood madam Heidi Fleiss is running a business she knows something about -- getting a load done. She opened her "Dirty Laundry" laundromat this past weekend in Nevada, just about one hour away from Las Vegas. Get it done, girl!

As she explained on the FOX News' "Big Story with John Gibson", "The demographics of the community fit the statistics of a successful Laundromat. So why not try something I've never done before?"
Sounds too good to be true, right? Correct! Fleiss' big biz is yet to come; she's planning to open a legal brothel -- where the customers are ladies! "I have had maybe over 300 women ready to buy memberships and plenty of men have applied ... and let me tell you ladies out there, they won't let you down!"

But the madam cautions, "Without Viagra we couldn't do it!" She's boned up on business!Even though she claims "it's uncharted waters for me because I'm used to the other way around," her new biz is supposed to be, er, up and running in 60 days.

Dare to Bare?

Who knew it was legal for a woman to walk around with her breasts exposed in New York?

Well, one woman did - and a cop didn't - and now she has forced the city to fork over a $29,000 legal set tlement for illegally busting her when she law fully bared her bosom and went for a stroll two years ago.

Jill Coccaro, a 27-year-old East Village artist who now goes by the name Phoenix Fee ley, went au na turel on Aug. 4, 2005, when she pulled down the front of her paint er's jumpsuit dur ing an art-show promotion to cool off.

In 1992 a state appeals court ruled that if men could expose their chests in public women could not be pun ished for doing the same.

Okay it's not illegal I guess that's good news for women who dare to bare. The question is... would you?

And the Winner is...

Amy Smith is the winner of our first WANNA BE A HUSSY contest! Congratulations, Amy and THANK YOU to all who entered. It was such fun!

My sheltered life...

Okay, I must have led a very sheltered life. I've never played Naked Twister. Let alone Naked Twister online.

But yesterday, the hussies opened my eyes wide. (And also gave me a crick in the neck.) I arrived at our HunksnHussies chat too late to play with Chase, our hunky-licious cowboy, but then Miriliel the Burnished (Mirry from Tailspin) stepped up and agreed to play a round or two.

Whoo mama!

I'm here to tell you I don't regret the muscle twinges the slightest little bit. There were hussies and tails and wings and hunky male all over the place. The scenery was waaaay spectacular! Of course, Mirry had an unfair advantage, and it wasn't just because of the extra feathery appendage and the gorgeous wings. He was!

Denise *still smiling through the ouchies*
