A sex nerd’s uncensored shelves

A shelf full of sex and kink books, with a small circular mirror in the middle, reflecting an afab person's crotch which they're holding a red dildo up to. Photo.

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.

Sharing sex positive shit: April 2020


  1. I love the staging of this image. The red books reflected with the red cock. It’s a dramatic photograph that makes you look longer. Searching out the details – of the books obviously 😉

  2. I’m with you on “real books” — there’s something viscerally appealing about turning pages, whether the hands are simultaneously engaged in other things or not. 😉

  3. This is such a clever image and I spent lots of time tilting my phone and my head to look at all the books here x

  4. Looking at your photo I found out what a true nerd I am. I found myself checking out all the titles of the books before my eyes even ventured to the mirror.
    Great photo.

  5. I love this! Although your shelves put mine to shame, I’m busy taking notes of which books I need to read first…I need to dig my kindle out again sometime!

  6. Yes agreed on read books. There is just something real about them that appeals to me in a way an e-reader never does

    Also this image is brilliant.
