These are not the uncensored shelves of a sex nerd, but they are unfiltered and thus meet the requirements of Molly’s fiendishly difficult Sinful Sunday prompt for May. In reality, my books on sex and kink are not all arranged on one shelf but found scattered around my room arranged due to height and colour and author more frequently than subject matter.
The arrangement of these books may have been staged for a photograph, but gathering all them together has reminded me how few I have read. The ones I have read have taught me such a lot about sex and kink and relationships, and I’m going to do my best to take at least a few of the rest from their usual shelves over the next few weeks.
I’m currently working my way through The New Topping Book for the second time. I’ve explored my sadistic switchiness more fully over the last few months, and I wanted to read it again with my newly embraced dominance in mind. I’m finding it just as hot as I did the first time I read it – is it usual to get so turned on by a primarily educational resource?
I learned to masturbate while reading erotica and prefer physical books – even though it’s harder to keep them open and in place while also juggling lube and a vibrator – to ebooks. There’s something filthy and taboo about turning actual pages with fingers that are wet with pre-cum. I’m an unapologetic sex nerd as well as an enthusiastic perv, but reading and learning about sex (and kink and gender and my body) fuels both parts of myself.
Want to follow my adventures in reading all the sex and kink books on my shelves? You can find me on both on Twitter and on Instagram, and I’d love you to follow me and share what your favourite sex and kink books are!
