Smut Marathon Round 1: Metaphorically Speaking

©2017 Sammi Lou Thorne

This year, I entered the Smut Marathon. What a challenge it’s been! We’re on round 6 right now, and I’m excited to have made it this far. All of the prompts are interesting, and some are harder than others.

For the first round, our assignment was to write an erotic metaphor. The metaphor could only be one sentence, and no longer than 30 words. This is a lot harder than it sounds. First, you don’t want to do something trite or well-used. Second, it’s a lot easier to write a simile.

I struggled with this one, and finally came up with my entry. I’m still not sure if I like it or not, but I felt at the very least it got my feet wet writing for a prompt with a very low word count. Here is my metaphor, entitled “Metamorphosis”:

Every thrust of your cock changes me; my orgasm is a butterfly emerging from its cocoon, spreading its wings wide once released to fly with graceful wonder from my soul.

There were 75 entries for Round 1, and I know I had trouble picking which ones to vote for.  There was a lot of feedback, and it was constructive to read the comments for all of the entries to get tips on what worked and what didn’t. It was definitely a learning experience!

I was looking forward to the challenge that Round 2 would bring.

Wicked Wednesday: Release

When I’m alone I think of you
and I am excited and aroused
I feel good, but the pressure builds.
to the point where I cannot contain it any longer.
My orgasm is my release
loud and uninhibited,
And I let go with abandon.

TMI Tuesday: Take A Look At Me Now

1. What was your biggest worry five years ago, do you still have that same worry or feel the same about it at this minute?
Five years ago, I think my biggest worry was how my Mom was doing, and if I’d have to move her down to live with me. That’s not a worry any more…unfortunately.

2. Do you have a positive or negative body image? What factors contribute to your self body image?
a. advertisements
b. media and social media
c. comments from others
d. introspection and analysis of self
I think my body image is mostly positive. There are things I like about my body and things I don’t, but the positives outweigh the negatives now. I think all of the above contribute to my self body image, but probably c and d the most.

3. How confident are you as a person?
a. no confidence at all
b. confident around friends and family
c. confident at work, and in my job
d. very confident in my surroundings–work, social settings, with strangers
I would say mostly b and c, but sometimes also in social settings and with strangers.

4. How creative a person are you? Why?
a. not creative
b. average creativity
c. creative in some situations
d. very creative
I would say d. I think I’m creative in a variety of ways, from writing to drawing, and other types of crafts like quilting where I make my own patterns.

5. Do you resent things being uncertain and unpredictable? Why?
a. agree
b. undecided or Don’t Know
c. disagree
I wouldn’t say I resent things being uncertain and unpredictable, but I don’t particularly like them when they are.

Bonus: What do you wish you had invented?
I wish I would have invented the Kindle and post-it notes. Oh, and the warp drive.

Wicked Wednesday: Trademark

You should trademark that look that
makes me smile with happiness
melts my heart with love
hardens my nipples
makes me wet
fills me with desire for you.

You would make a fortune.

TMI Tuesday: You, You, You

1. If you were an ice-cream flavor, what would you be and why?
Hmmm…I think I’d be Pistachio. I’m smooth and subtle, and just a bit nutty.

2. What are the best sexy skills you bring to a sexual relationship?
I think my desire to please and try anything are skills that I bring. Plus, I love to give head, and I think I’m quite good at it.

3. What is the single largest problem causing you angst in your romantic relationship (current or most recent relationship)?
That’s a tough one. I guess right now it’s a problem of conflict and uncertainty.

4. What is the best part about being in a relationship with you?
I think the best part is knowing that I love unconditionally, and I’m a good conversationalist. Well, plus I’m good in bed.

5. What is the biggest misconception that people have about you?
Being blonde, it’s usually that I’m not very smart. And that is very far from the truth.

Bonus:  When you look at old photos of yourself, do you like what you see?
For the most part, yes. There are different ages that I am happier with, but overall I do like what the photos show.
