Apostro-what?


Hello, my lovelies,

Today I bring you an article, by request of The Mistress herself, dealing with one particular punctuation mark - the apostrophe.

Now, many of you know what an apostrophe is and how it should be used, however, many more still use it incorrectly. This easy to follow guide should hopefully clear that up for you all and make everyone's lives easier!

First, what is an apostrophe? The obvious answer is a punctuation mark that looks like this: ' But what is it used for?

The apostrophe serves two main purposes. The first is used to indicate one or missing letters in a word and is often used to shorten one or more words into a single word. For example, does not becomes doesn't and cannot becomes can't. Are you with me so far? Good, because here is where things get just that little bit more complex.

The second use of the apostrophe is to indicate that something belongs to someone. Examples of this include Belthizor's article and the cat's whiskers.

See how the apostrophe can make a big difference? What frustrates me the most is when people fail to use the apostrophe appropriately. The simple way to avoid incorrect use is to slow down and think about what you're trying to write - is it belonging or missing? if it is neither, then don't use an apostrophe.

Now that I've cleared that up, I hope for your sakes that you follow my advice. I will not be very happy if I see things like "Theres no way out!" or "Those animals are cat's". Use an apostrophe, and make everyone happy.

Until next time, happy writing, and remember "Let's eat grandma" changes with the addition of a comma - "Let's eat, grandma". Punctuation - it saves lives!

Yours,

Lord Belthizor, Assistant Editor for Mistress Journals and Naughty Nights Press (NNP)

Mistress Journals Welcomes Vampirique Dezire As New Moderator



Sending out the warmest welcome to Vampirique Dezire as one of MJ's new Moderators and a very sexy, very special lady.

With the sad final closure of her own personal forum Between the Sheets after the constant disappointments and annoyance at changing her site time and time again, Vampirique had pretty much given up.

Well, now I would never let the jerk offs who keep reporting her and I both win now would I?
Absolutely not!

So it it with great pleasure I do announce that Vampirique Dezire accepted my offer and has now become a Moderator with us here on MJ's. She belongs on a forum and I will be damned if I allow her to sit simply on a blog!

Thank you and welcome home Vampirique! I know you will have a long and happy time here with us as we are already a long time family to you. Rest assured there is very little chance this forum will ever go down!

"Bewitched at the Beach" The second novella in "The Rune Witch Series" Trilogy by Laura Stamps



Gina Kincade's Personal Pick Of The Week!

"Bewitched at the Beach" The second novella in "The Rune Witch Series" Trilogy by Laura Stamps is absolutely on my HOT and Naughty List! You do NOT want to miss out on this amazingly sensual yet totally erotic read!





"The Rune Witch Series" is an erotica novella trilogy in ebook, featuring Noelle (a feisty alpha Rune Witch) and her HAWT boyfriend Wynn (a sexy shapeshifter).

Wynn and Noelle appeared in two of "The Witchery Series" novels ("What Witches Want" and "Call of the Witches") as secondary characters. Now this lusty couple has a series of their own, which takes place during the hot summer months of August and September in sultry South Carolina.

Follow these two as they go from one sexcapade to the next, while Wynn tries everything he can think of to convince commitment-phobic Noelle to marry him. Good thing he never plays fair.

Keep a cold drink handy for this series. You're gonna need it!"



"Bewitched at the Beach"

In this erotica novella Wynn is offered a long weekend trip to Hilton Head Island by his vampire boss, Drayton Manigault (from "A Vampire's Kiss"). Of course, Wynn and Noelle jump at the chance. However the corporate beach house where they spend this three-day sexfest may never be the same again! *lusty grin*




Fans had this to say about "Bewitched At The Beach"

By Marissa, Sizzling Hot Books

The second book in the Rune Witch trilogy, Bewitched at the Beach is even better then the first one, Sex Magick. Bewitched at the Beach picks up where the first one leaves off so you don't feel as though you missed a lot of time with Noelle and Wynn.

Wynn gets the opportunity to stay at a luxury beach house for a long weekend with Noelle from his boss Dray and of course they jump at the chance. Who can pass up a chance at the beach, and what promises to be a chance at amazing beach sex?

Wynn uses this opportunity to try to convince Noelle to marry him. I loved that Wynn hasn't given up trying to convince Noelle to marry him, even after he is turned down. I thought that Wynn trying to convince Noelle to marry him while on vacation was the perfect time.

Bewitched at the Beach is a short but sexy read, with some hot sensual sex. Noelle has a bit of an exhibitionist streak and there are some sizzling hot sexy senses in the hot tub and at the beach that I loved. I loved how daring both Noelle and Wynn are. After reading Bewitched at the Beach you will need a cold shower.

In Bewitched at the Beach we find out why Noelle is reluctant to marry. I was glad we found out, but to me it seemed a little unrealistic but I think that is because I always wanted to grow up and get married. Wynn tries hard to convince Noelle to marry him and I loved that. I think they make the perfect couple.

My favorite part of Bewitched by the Beach was the scene with Wynn's wild flowery swim trunks, it added a nice dose of humor. Overall I loved Bewitched by the Beach and look forward to reading The Harvest Moon. I wonder if there is a wedding in their future.


By Mrs Angela French (gold coast, qld, AU)

I Love Love this series it is soo good.. I loved that fact that they are short,sexy and sweet!!! Straight to the point LOVE IT!!!!
I love it in this one Wynn tries to convince Noelle to marry him,as they go away on a little vacation.. This One is Super Hot, i mean a colder shower in some place are needed!!
Two Words.. HOT TUB..!!! Damn!! it is HOT!!

Cant wait to read the next one,as it should be an awesome finish to the series!! Laura Stamps is an amazing writer she knows how write her S.E.X!!!

From Paige Tyler's Newsletter - An update on "PROTECTIVE CUSTODY" released today with "Whiskey Creek Press Torrid'


Paige Tyler's Newsletter - Stories So Hot They'll Make Your Cheeks Blush!


I'm so excited! My hot contemporary erotic romance PROTECTIVE CUSTODY comes out today with Whiskey Creek Press Torrid! Gotta love a guy who comes with his own handcuffs!


Paisley McCoy is a sexy reporter who writes about the San Francisco club scene for a local magazine. Having a dad on the force has led to one hard and fast rule – she doesn’t date cops. She likes her men sensitive and intellectual, two qualities in short supply in any cop she’s ever met. But now she’s stuck with this standard-issue cop – aggressive, opinionated, and sure he’s always right. In short, the complete opposite of the kind of man she usually goes for.

Gray Beckham is a no-nonsense cop who’s peeved about being taken off a major burglary investigation to babysit the captain’s bratty daughter, even if she is gorgeous. To make it even more annoying, she acts like the whole thing is a joke and insists she doesn’t even need his protection. And while she might be sexy as hell, there’s no way he’s going anywhere near the captain’s daughter.

Despite their differences, though, Paisley and Gray can’t deny the chemistry between them. But as that connection turns into romance, they find out that the stalker is a far greater threat than they had originally thought. And that if he can’t have her, no one will.

Paige Tyler has 3 New Releases in December just for you! DEAD SEXY, SEXY SECRET SANTA and PROTECTIVE CUSTODY. Just in time for the holidays!!!



DEAD SEXY by Paige Tyler comes out December 10th with Ellora's Cave.

Synopsis:

Romance author Simone Kent thinks she might just have found the most perfect guy in all of New York City – in bed and out.

But Drake Parrish is about as far from perfect as any man can get. Eight years ago, he was cursed by an evil Voodoo priestess to live part of his life as a zombie. Since then, he has lived like a recluse on New York’s Upper East Side, afraid to go out for fear he’ll suddenly turn into one of the walking dead.

Being with Simone reminds him of everything he was forced to give up and Drake finds himself feeling things for her that he hasn’t felt in a very long time. When the Voodoo priestess learns of their relationship, however, she comes after him again. She doesn’t believe Drake has paid for his sins and is determined to make sure he won’t have a future with Simone, even if that means killing the woman he loves.


Excerpt:

As she led him up the steps to the second floor, Drake found himself wondering if she would ask him in. And wondering what he’d say if she did. When they came to a stop outside the door to her apartment, Simone turned to give him a smile.
“I had a great time tonight.”

“Me, too.”

She caught her bottom lip between her perfect white teeth and chewed on it thoughtfully as if unsure what she wanted to say next. It was probably an unconscious gesture, something she did whenever she was thinking, but to him, it was sexy as hell and all he could think about was kissing her.

Surely, one kiss couldn’t hurt. He desperately wanted to. He hadn’t kissed a woman in so long. It would be nice to see if he still remembered how.
Before he could stop himself, Drake tilted Simone’s face up to his and pressed his mouth to hers.

She tasted just as sweet and delicious as he thought she would. Her lips were soft and pliant under his as she kissed him back, her tongue eagerly seeking his out.
Drake groaned and slid his hand into her hair, deepening the kiss. Simone sighed into his mouth, running her hands up the front of his shirt to grasp his shoulders. The feel of her touch was like a tonic to his deprived soul and he let out another groan, deeper this time.

He ran his free hand up her side and around to her breast, cupping it through the soft material of her dress. He couldn’t stop himself and apparently, Simone didn’t want him to. She moaned and arched against him. He could feel the heat of her pussy through their clothes as she pressed up against his hard cock. Damn, she felt good.

Drake drew her bottom lip into his mouth and gently suckled on it before slowly kissing his way along the delicate curve of her jaw. Simone clutched his shoulders and tilted her head back. He eagerly trailed a path of hot kisses down her neck, then back up, his mouth finding hers again. Simone looped her arms around his neck, pulling him in even closer as their tongues met.

Down the hall, a door slammed, reminding him where they were.
Drake dragged his mouth away from hers, his breathing ragged as he tried to regain control. He had to get it together because he was about five seconds away from doing something really stupid. Like taking her to bed. “I should go.”

Her lips curved into a sexy, flirtatious smile. “Or you could stay.”

God, how he wanted to. But as much as he’d love to spend the rest of the night exploring every inch of her body, he couldn’t take the chance he might go zombie on her right in the middle of sex. Talk about coitus interruptus, And it had already been almost four days since he last turned, which meant he was already pushing his luck.

“You don’t know how much I want to,” he groaned. “But I can’t.”

Simone looked up at him with those big, blue eyes. “Why not?”

“Because I…” He hesitated, trying to come up with something that would sound believable. “I have a column due in the morning and I haven’t even started on it yet.” She knew all about deadlines, so she would understand that. Besides, he did have a column to write, it just wasn’t due until next week. “Rain check?”
She looked disappointed, but she smiled anyway. “Absolutely. How does coming over for dinner tomorrow night sound?”

It would be crazy to agree when he could be so close to having an episode, but he couldn’t say no. Not when she asked in that soft, sultry voice. “Sounds great.”
“Good. Be here at seven.”
“Seven it is.”

She pulled him down for another long, slow kiss on the mouth. “Don’t be late.”
His mouth twitched. “I won’t.” He bent his head to kiss her again, then groaned. “If I don’t go now, I’ll be here all night.”

Simone laughed. “Would that be such a bad thing?”

“Not to me, but my editor at Money Issues might not be too understanding when he doesn’t find my column sitting in his inbox tomorrow.”

She sighed. “Deadlines can be a real pain in the butt sometimes. Okay, go home and write your column. I’ll cuddle up with a bowl of ice cream instead.”

He chuckled. “Sounds better than taking a cold shower, which is what I’m going to be doing when I get home.” He closed his mouth over hers once more. “See you tomorrow night, beautiful.”

Resisting the urge to pull her into his arms again, Drake turned and walked down the hallway toward the stairwell. At the top of the steps, he glanced over his shoulder to see Simone standing where he’d left her, a sexy curve to her lips.

It took every ounce of strength he possessed not to go back and pin her against the door for one more long, lingering kiss. God, what he wouldn’t give to spend the night with her. Man, it was going to take more than a cold shower to get her out of his head.



Also coming December 10th by Paige Tyler "SEXY SECRET SANTA" from Ellora's Cave!



Synopsis:

Hollie Kerr has lusted after hot architectural engineer Dirk Fraser ever
since they started working together, so she’s thrilled to discover he’s her Secret
Santa at the office Christmas party. What she doesn’t know is that her friend has
led him to believe Hollie prefers a good spanking over a boring, old present any
day.

Though Hollie is surprised when Dirk put her over his knee, she can’t pass up the
opportunity to get spanked by a hunky guy like him. Her upturned bottom isn’t
the only thing that gets hot, however, and soon they’re having sex right there in the office. By the time they come up for air, the party has wrapped up, their
coworkers have left and the building is locked up tight.

What’s a girl supposed to do when she’s trapped all night in the office with
a gorgeous guy? Have sex in all the places she’s ever fantasized about, of
course.



PROTECTIVE CUSTODY Coming December 1st from Whiskey Creek Press Torrid!

Synopsis:

Paisley McCoy is a sexy reporter who writes about the San Francisco club scene
for a local magazine. Having a dad on the police force has led to one hard and fast
rule--she doesn’t date cops. She likes her men sensitive and intellectual, two
qualities in short supply in any cop she’s ever met. However, when her safety is
threatened and her life in danger, she gets stuck with a standard-issue cop for a
bodyguard--aggressive, opinionated, and certain he’s always right. In short, the complete opposite of the kind of man she usually goes for.

Gray Beckham is a no-nonsense cop who’s peeved about being taken off a
major burglary investigation to babysit the captain’s bratty daughter. Just
because she’s gorgeous doesn’t change the situation. His career is
important and she acts as if the whole situation is a joke and insists she
doesn’t need his protection. While she might be sexy as hell, there’s no way
he’s going anywhere near her, not if he can help it.

Despite their differences, though, Paisley and Gray can’t deny the
chemistry between them. As that connection turns into a romance neither
can avoid, they find out that the stalker is a far greater threat than they
originally thought. They’re dealing with a crazed lunatic who has decided
that if he can’t have her, no one will.

"The Disadvantages Gay and Lesbian" a Sociology Report by Belthizor


Introduction

This report looks at the disadvantages of the Gay and Lesbian groups and subgroups in Australian and worldwide society. It aims to present a positive point of view on the group and dispel many of the myths surrounding it. Issues that will be addressed include a definition, brief history, stereotypes surrounding gays and lesbians, difficulties faced and recommendations that could be put into effect to rectify the disadvantages.

Definition

The Merriam-Webster states the adjective definition of gays and lesbians as “Of, relating to, or characterized by a tendency to direct sexual desire toward another of the same sex” and the noun definition as “A homosexual person and especially a male” and this is generally accepted among the gay and lesbian community. This definition is a non-biased description based on facts, however, many people in the non-gay and lesbian community share a different opinion and hold great prejudice against gays and lesbians.


1 History
1.1 From the dawn of mankind – Pro-homosexuality

Gays and lesbians have not always been excluded from society and research has shown that, although the term homosexual was not widely used until 1892 (Merriam-Webster dictionary), evidence of homosexual behaviour has been present since the dawn of mankind. Mankind created many works of art (pottery, cave paintings, etc) that display evidence of an appreciation of homosexual eroticism. In the year 509BC, for example, the Roman Republic was founded and homosexuality was widespread and legalised, much like it was in Greece.

1.2 Homosexuality is criminalised – 13th Century

However, approximately 1500 years later, between the years 1250 and 1300AD homosexual activity drastically changed from being completely legalized and even accepted to such extreme measures as to incur the death penalty on ‘offenders’.

1.3 Decriminalisation of homosexuality – 18th Century

Homosexual criminalisation began to decrease by the 18th and 19th centuries, with many countries either decriminalising homosexuality, or else imposing far less severe punishments for those found guilty of its practice.

1.4 20th Century – the psychiatry of homosexuality

By the time of the 20th century, homosexuality began to be deemed as a psychiatric disorder and for many years it remained this way. These studies were later found to be flawed and unreliable and in 1973, homosexuality was declassified as a mental illness in the United Kingdom. In 1986, all references to homosexuality as a psychiatric disorder were removed from the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM) of the American Psychiatric Association.

1.5 20th Century to modern times

Despite this, much prejudice still remained and campaigns for gay rights began during the 20th century. Despite much of this prejudiced attitude disappearing towards the latter half of this century, prejudiced and anti-gay mania was still present, even to this day. Although steps are being made to improve attitudes towards homosexuals, for example, welfare systems (such as Centrelink in Australia) are recognising same sex couples as being a legitimate relationship worthy of welfare payments. Despite these positive changes, there are still many countries where it is illegal from Africa to Oceania with punishments ranging from fines to severe punishments such as death.

2 Stereotypes

2.1 Labels and stereotypes associated with gay men (Gays)
The most prevalent stereotype associated with gay men (more commonly known as Gays) surrounds the belief that they are immoral, have substance abuse problems and have trouble staying in committed relationships. Although these stereotypes may not always be false, they are not isolated solely to homosexuals and are just as common, if not more so in heterosexual individuals.

2.1.1 A brief look at gay men stereotypes

· Gay men are often labelled as being overtly effeminate or being labelled as “pansy”.
· Gay men are viewed as promiscuous and not wanting a long term relationship.
· Gay men are viewed as more susceptible to HIV+/AIDS.
· Gay men are often suspected of being paedophiles.

While some gay men do cross dress and act feminine, the overwhelming majority of gay men are indistinguishable from heterosexual men. Similarly, the most common misconception is that gay men are more susceptible to being HIV Positive or have AIDS. Research has shown that the risk for sexual transmission of AIDS “through unprotected anal intercourse is greater than the risk from vaginal intercourse or oral sex.” (Wikipedia, 2010). This could be the primary factor in homosexual men been labelled as the primary carriers of the HIV virus due to the method of sexual intercourse.

2.2 Labels and stereotypes associated with gay women (Lesbians)

Lesbians are commonly stereotyped as always seeking butch/femme relationships, being loud, obnoxious, and overweight and having short hair. Again, all are traits that are also commonly observed in heterosexual women.

2.2.1 A brief look at gay female stereotypes
· Gay women are often seen as “butch, and manly”.
· Gay women are often presumed as bi-sexual.
· Gay women can be viewed as aggressive and unapproachable
· A lot of people think lesbians only wear pants, trousers and “manly” outfits.

2.2.2 Derogatory labels given to gay men and women
· Dykes
· Fags
· Faggots
· Homos
· Poofters
· Queens
· Cross-dressers
3 Difficulties

Gays and lesbians are, perhaps, the most common recipients of difficulties among wider societies. Many have had to endure hardships and have even been discriminated against. Such hardships include:

3.1 Abuse

Verbal and physical abuse from people who don’t/can’t accept the lifestyle of homosexuals, with many homosexuals either been victim to verbal assaults (i.e. having insults hurled at them, name calling, etc) or in extreme, but not uncommon, cases – actual physical assault. These kinds of physical abuse are often referred to colloquially as “gay bashings”. The older generation and most religious organisations are vehemently opposed to homosexuality. The older generation, perhaps, fear change, whilst religious organisations claim that to love a man as one would love a woman is a sin and unforgivable.

3.2 Discrimination

3.2.1 Personal Discrimination

Some people feel uncomfortable about being near a gay person, fearing that their “gayness” is a contagious disease.

3.2.2 Professional Discrimination

In the workplace, a person’s sexuality can be used against them as a result, the individual may be looked over for a job opportunity. Corporate bodies feel that a gay person in a high-ranking position would not look good for their image.

3.3 Legal/Human Rights

Access to certain services, such as welfare payments are not always governed to gay couples and tend to only look at the rights of heterosexual couples. However, as of July 1 2009, Australia’s welfare office, Centrelink, announced that they would be providing the same level of service to same-sex couples as they previously gave to heterosexual couples.

4 Consequences of the disadvantage on gay individuals

As a result of these disadvantages and poor treatment, abuse, assaults, etc. many gay and lesbian people (particularly youth) develop an increased risk of getting mental disorders such as anxiety and Depression. It can also lead to increased incidences of suicides and attempted suicides, and a withdrawn, repressed and introverted personality which differs from their normal behaviour. This leads to the individual losing the desire to enjoy their life to its fullest and can even lead them to suicide.

5 Impacts of the disadvantaged group on society

The continuation of these consequences can lead to whole societies beginning by discriminating against same sex couples. This can lead to extreme cases of discrimination to the point of a society that thrives on injustice, hate and indifference shunning any and all people who are different. This would ultimately lead to the collapse of the society as many communities rely on income from sources such as import/export, tourism, etc.

6 Recommendations

6.1 Awareness
Awareness is a major factor that would contribute to the improvement of homosexual to heterosexual relations. Encouraged participation in pro-gay events such as Mardi Gras, Rainbow Day and the recent Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Discrimination (GLAAD) Spirit Day where people were encouraged to wear something purple in honour of the many youth that had committed suicide as a result of anti-gay abuse would help raise awareness of homosexuality and help people to understand homosexuality better.

6.2 Support Groups

Support groups should be more accessible for gays and lesbians, with particular focus on youth who are just coming into a realization of their sexuality. Youth are particularly vulnerable and having a range of support available to them will help to drastically improve opinions and decrease suicide rates.

6.3 School Counselling Services

Increased free and confidential school counselling options is another option that would help gay youths.

6.4 Legal/Human Rights Services

Organisations that deal with human rights and legal rights need to be more accommodating to same sex couples. In the interviews that were conducted, the majority of the interviewees mentioned that legal rights were a major factor that needed attention, specifically when it came to wills and medical issues if someone dies.

6.5 Bullying

Many of the interviewees also stated that they felt they would be held back from admitting their sexuality in the workplace, citing that bullying was a real concern and that stricter discipline policies needed to be enforced for them to feel comfortable “coming out of the closet”.

Conclusion

Through research and interviews conducted it became clear that the most pressing issues surrounding same sex relationships was in equal rights both in the workplace and in their personal lives. In a country that is so open and welcoming, it became apparent that there was also a lot of hypocrisy going on ‘behind the scenes’.

Homosexuals are ordinary people just like heterosexuals, and they just wish to be treated the same way as ordinary people and not have their sexual orientation called into question as a judgment against their character.

Long gone are the days of sexual ambiguity, but so, too, are the days of harsh penalties (namely execution). If Australia’s culture is a multi-cultural one, then it can be a multi-sexual one as well. By following the recommendations in this article, homosexual to heterosexual relations can improve and homosexual people can be welcomed into this society.

In the Bible it may say "Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination." (Leviticus 18:22), but this article says that mankind and womankind should lie with whomever they want be they male or female.

“Bound to Surrender” by Tess Lamont ...Gina Kincade’s Review







Gina Kincade’s Review of "Bound To Surrender" by Tess Lamont




After reading and reviewing my first book by Tess Lamont, “Bound To Be Mine”, I was exhilarated and excited when I knew she’d finally released another book. But a small part of me was slightly apprehensive too.

After the incredible naughty heat generated in the first book, could Ms. Lamont really pull off another one that would make my heat rise and my insides turn to mush in the same way or would it be a bust and leave me cold and disappointed?


I need not have worried! “Bound to Surrender” did not disappoint this readers’s expectations but rather far exceeded them. Ms. Lamont has most definitely pulled off yet again! Brilliant!

Tess Lamont is an incredible author so far in the BDSM genre. I can honestly say I can certainly see Ms. Lamont as one of the next generation of the “hottest” authors!

The sizzling sexual heat apparent between her characters from the start only increased in it’s intensity as Bryce goes vanilla in his appetites and brings out the pleasures that until now Christina has only dreamt of experiencing.


In my opinion “Bound To Surrender” is most definitely another 5/5. Come on Tess, bring on the next book!


For those who enjoy a lunch hour treat that will send you off all warm and tingly inside, not to mention quite wet, “Bound to Surrender” is an e-book I recommend highly!

Yours truly,

Gina Kincade, Author of Erotic and Erotic Paranormal Romance


Get your Kindle version here right now for only $3.00! That is sooo much less then this book is worth!



Blurb

Though single motherhood taught Christina Welch ruthless self-denial, in her heart she secretly craves a man who'll drive her wild in bed. Now that her son is spending the summer with his father, she can't keep her mind off the one man who haunts her dreams--her son's baseball coach.
Bryce Walker lusts after the sexy librarian who never missed her son's home games. Respect and caution held him back, but every time she peeks at him under her lashes, instinct tells him she needs what he has to offer.

When Bryce meets Christina by chance on her birthday, desire smolders hotter than the early summer heat wave. He buys her ice cream, but they both know only one thing will cool them down. As Bryce leads Christina into a world of sensual pain and pleasure, she discovers heights of emotion she never knew existed. She learns to trust Bryce with her body, but can she trust him with her heart? Summer doesn't last forever...


Excerpt

“Must be awful to be without air conditioning—it’s at least 100,” she said. She popped the last of her cone into her mouth and hummed.
“105, actually. I heard on the gym radio that it’s not supposed to go down past 90 tonight.”
She shook her head and scowled.
“That’s too hot to sleep without air conditioning. Hey, maybe you should check into one of those hotels on 73—there’s a zillion of them. I bet you could get a good deal,” she said in a light, careless tone. Her eyes were fixed on his.
Was she probing for his plans?
“I was thinking of heading over to the mall and seeing if I can find a new unit. I should have done it weeks ago, but with the school year ending, I was too busy.”
Bryce refused to be the first to look away, especially since he’d just noticed how the brandy-gold color of her eyes shaded darker around the edges. Christina smiled like the damn Mona Lisa.
“Hey, I have an even better idea,” she said, as if a thought just occurred to her. “Would you like to come to my place for a drink? I was about to pick up some sangria.”
He’d been angling for an invite, and his palms tingled with anticipation. Bryce swallowed. He didn’t want to assume sex was an option, but her body practically emitted raw, sensual need.
“Are you sure?” he asked.
“It’s my birthday, I want to celebrate,” she said, her voice resolute. She peeked through her lashes and smirked. “Maybe after a drink or two, I could answer your question.”
Bryce cleared his throat. “What question was that?”
“Well, you asked if I had a wish you could grant,” she said, low and sultry.
Bryce’s head swam. All his blood flowed in one direction.
She pushed back her chair. “Thank you for the ice cream.”
“You are very welcome.” He stood and placed his arm out. “After you...”
“I’m in the Deer Hollow development, number 221,” she said. “Do you know where it is?”
“Sure, but I thought I’d follow you.”
“I don’t think so, I need to stop for sangria,” she replied as they reached the exit. “And you need to get some condoms.”

Mistress Journals Erotic Stories Forum is now re-opened



Dearest Naughty Friends,

After a whole lot of work, by my incredible Techie, converting the Mistress Journals Erotic Stories Forum over to the new format from Phpbb to SMF for the forum structure in an attempt to better control the amount of fake accounts and spam on the forum we are disappointed to report we were unable to make the change.

During the final testing phase yesterday it was discovered that the SMF forums did not support many of the options and features we at MJ's rely on for the "look and feel" of our forum as we had expected from it's description.

In addition we found that not only did the new structure not disperse with the issues we currently have with our initial forum setup but it added in more issues that were were not prepared to bother dealing with at this time.

We felt it was simply more important to have our forum available to our Authors and Readers with a few quirks on the board then have it unavailable any longer.

So in a nutshell, we have reverted back to the old system for the time being with the hope that in the future we will be successful in converting it in another way.

We hope that you will all resume your writings and reading of the incredible stories and poems the forum has to offer and for those of you who were waiting to create your accounts you may now do so.

To expedite your acceptance simply inbox me on FB your chosen name for your account and I will personally approve the account manually so you can gain your access sooner.

If you wish to become an Author on the forum and share your stories or poetry I can also add you to the "Authors" group at that time rather then you having to apply for it and wait the 24-48 hours it normally takes to be accepted.

Please remember to always use valid email addresses when creating your account or you run the risk of it being removed as a possible spam account. As we seem to be getting about 50-75 spam accounts per week it is very difficult to tell who is real or not so we usually just go by the email account confirmation if the IP address is clear on the "Stop Forum Spam" page.

Ok, babbled enough, fourm is back up! Get to it! Mistress Journals Erotic Stories Forum awaits you...

As always we invite you to join us on our Official Facebook Fan Page too!

Yours Faithfully,
Lady Gina Kincade,
The Mistress Of Erotica

Vampires - Silent Killers or Nancy-Boy Emos? by Belthizor


Hello my lovelies and faithful readers,
I bring to you, today, a very special article. Today we look at how modern media has changed the image of the single most dangerous predator - the vampire.

I begin today's article with a look at what tradition deems to be a vampire. According to some (and Wikipedia), Vampires are mythological beings who 'live' by feeding on the very life essence of living creatures. This is characterised in the form of blood. Vampires are said to survive by drinking the blood of living creatures be they animal, human, or even the undead themselves. In many tales, drinking the blood of a fellow vampire is said to provide an even greater energy surge, unlike any they would get from the blood of mortals.

Literary historian Brian Frost believes that the "belief in vampires and bloodsucking demons is as old as man himself". Having said this, the term vampire was not popularized until the early 18th century after an influx of vampire superstition into Western Europe. Indeed, it is Bram Stoker's 1897 novel Dracula that is remembered as the quintessential vampire novel, and remains to this day, my personal favourite vampire myth.

There is just something about a Victorian-era count living all alone in his castle overlooking the township of Transylvania that appeals to me. The fact that Dracula was only ever seen during the night, during which time, he would feed on his hapless victims really sets the scene for mystery, and that is what is the most appealing thing to me about the vampire mythos. Dracula's weaknesses included sunlight (though it did not kill or burn him, just weakened him), a wooden stake through the heart, decapitation and fire were said to kill him. He was also said to have no reflection and be unable to cross running water except at low or high tide, he was unable to enter a place unless invited to do so, once invited, however, he was free to enter and leave at will. He also requires Transylvanian soil to be near him in order to successfully rest and regain his strength. A trait that all but disappears with the modern vampire. Dracula's powers were many, but included hypnosis, shape-shifting, enhanced strength, telepathy, being able to climb upside down vertical surfaces and control nocturnal animals such as rats and wolves. Interestingly, Dracula could also control the weather, usually conjuring up a fog to hide his presence and add to the mystery.

This brings me to modern media's interpretation of vampires. At first, it started off innocently enough - Buffy the Vampire Slayer brought a new flavour to vampires. According to the Buffy series, vampires were demons inhabiting the human shell of their former victim. These vampires carried many of the traits of traditional vampires - they are unable to enter the residences of the living without having first being invited, they can only be killed by fire, beheading, penetrating the heart with a wooden object (most notably, a stake), direct, prolonged exposure to sunlight and blessed/holy items, and they had enhanced senses (strength, speed, etc). However, unlike dear old Drac, vampires in the Buffyverse, have a demonic visage that they can change into at will, and upon their "death" they explode into a cloud of dust. Different, but acceptable.

Next up, we have a series of films of which the first is entitled Underworld. These vampires are seen as being more moral citizens living underground away from the prying eyes of humans and forever feuding with their mortal enemies - werewolves (also known as Lycans from the term Lycanthrope meaning wolf-man, a type of therianthropy which literally translates as beast-man, which alludes to the ability, whether voluntary or involuntary, transformation into an anthropomorphic beast). The vampires in Underworld, like their Lycan counterparts, carry a virus within their genes, that, should a human who is bitten by a vampire survive the virus's initial outbreak, are transformed into a vampire. Biting is not the only method of vampiric 'reproduction' as it is shown that vampires can interbreed with each other and produce vampiric offspring. A vampire's main weakness is, once again, sunlight. Underworld also dealt largely with the politics of being a vampire, something I will not go into at this stage.

Next we have Blade. Vampires were evil beings bearing fangs that turned to ash when 'killed'. Their weaknesses were a severe allergic reaction to silver, garlic and sunlight. A wooden stake through the heart was also said to kill one. Blade introduced us to the Dhampir - half-human, half-vampire having all of the strengths of a normal vampire, and only one of their weaknesses - The Thirst for human blood.

Other authors have re-created vampires to great effect, including Christopher Pike's "The Last Vampire" series, and any vampire book by Anne Rice, however, not all modern day vampires are such marvellous, mysterious wonders.

There was 'peace' among the vampire mythos, until along came author Stephenie Meyer. She re-created the vampire in ways we could not comprehend, and while hugely popular, especially among the pre-teenage audience, found her creations to be largely unpopular with those of use who have grown up with tales of horrifying monsters that feed at night on the blood of living beings. Meyer created Edward Cullen, and may we curse the day that sparkly little emo-freak was created.

Edward Cullen is a vampire who looks just like a regular human boy, albeit with serious complexion issues... that is, until you expose him to sunlight. Edward Cullen, upon sunlight exposure, does not spontaneously combust, nor does he even get a sunburn, let alone a tan... no, boys and girls, Edward sparkles, and he doesn't do it quietly, either. He is always whining about how being a superhumanly powerful creature that feeds off blood is a bad thing. He puts on a woe-is-me attitude and constantly complains about how bad life is, and by constantly, I mean: all. The. God-damned. Time. To the point that you just want him to shut the hell up!

Edward's powers include, super-strength, speed, the ability to read minds and, apparently, the ability to reproduce with mortals, albeit at a high risk of either feasting on the blood of his human companion (something which he has sworn against, and yet still complains that he is dangerous) or else crushing her to death with his "super-strong-penis-o'-death"... at least that's how I see it.

In conclusion, I wish to issue a warning to all you aspiring authors - it is my job to read your stories, and edit for spelling, punctuation and grammatical errors, but I also do a mini-review of the stories, and if I see one single sparkly emotionally disturbed vampire with, what I have officially coined as, a "super-strong-penis-o'-death", there WILL be serious repercussions as it simply does not make good fiction... having said that, I DO welcome any and all stories that deal with the execution of the aforementioned emotionally damaged vampire.

Vampires have come a long way from times when they were silent, well-dressed, killers of the night that could keep an entire township under their thrall by mere reputation alone. Is the future of vampires destined to be vegetarian (non-blood drinking, like Edward Cullen), sparkly vampires with severe manic depression to the point of moping about their "super-strong-penis-o'-death" (oh noes!)? For your sake, as well as mine, I seriously hope not.

Until next time,
Keep on writing,

"Time for Time Management" by Belthizor, Assistant Editor of Mistress Journals


Hello my little underlings,

My, it has been a long time since I last wrote on here, and an even longer time since I found the time to edit stories, but fear not, I have not dropped off the edge of the earth... at least not yet. I have recently been making a few changes in my life, and these include studying to be a Community Services Worker.

Naturally, studying has taken up a large amount of my time, as I have been swamped with assessment tasks and trying to work up the courage to face one of my fears, a most common one indeed - public speaking. Dun dun duuun.

So, on with today's article - time management. A skill that is essential in nearly all professions and hobbies. Many of you have a life outside writing, and let's face it, life doesn't stop because you want to do some writing. Here are a few tips to help you manage things better.

Schedules:- writing up a rough schedule for every day can help you manage tasks more efficiently. For example, I schedule my days to work around my studies. Obviously if I've been to class, I'm going to come home and be utterly exhausted, and not want to do homework, however I usually have the next day off, and so I spend my time doing my assignments, scheduling when I do what and for how long. I admit, my time management skills are not the best, and well, we all know how unpredictable life can be. I recently fell ill which put a slight damper on things (out of sheer stubbornness, though, I worked tirelessly throughout the whole time I was sick citing I did not have the time to be sick. This is a perfect example of how NOT to time manage. If you're sick, your well being should always come first!

Rewards:- Whenever you complete a task, you should reward yourself. If you finish a story, for example (after making sure you've saved, and saved again) do something that you enjoy for half an hour before doing the next task. This gives you incentive to work towards the completion of your goal.

Breaks:- Continuing on with the story writing example, don't sit there at your computer for 5 hours straight (for example) writing your story, because the end result will probably see you slumped over your desk face down on your keyboard. Nobody wants to read a story that's been written on no rest and is full of such things as nfeoidknnrseodgnvroeikghvnreklfgnveoslkngviurdnsgviejhfgnvnorgnvoejhngvirkngvolr. Take a 5-15 minute break every half hour or so. Get up. Get away from the computer, go for a walk, make something to eat, whatever you do, do it away from the computer (just make sure to save your progress first!) This clears the mind and gets rid of the cobwebs that will undoubtedly build up in your heads (the ones that aren't already there, as seems to be the case with most writers who seem to have an aptitude for REALLY bad spelling and grammar).

Follow these steps, and you will find that your body and your writing will thank you for it in the end.

Until next time, keep on writing, and I will be back among your ranks in three weeks' time to resume my editing duties plays Chopin's "Funeral March". Muahahaha!

Let Us Advertise Our .co.cc Extension Websites


Please join me in the protest against Facebook's claim* that individual websites have been reported as abusive or spam and not just the extensions.
Join me here http://www.facebook.com/pages/Let-us-advertise-our-dot-co-dot-cc-websites/147513155282055?ref=mf

It is NOT the domains or the hosts as they claim on the Help Center page but the use of the .co.cc extension that follows the website name.

I might add that I failed to see any such notice the other day when I was looking so this must have been added recently as it was just found by my colleague and fellow author Monie Penny. Her site http://between-thesheets.co.cc has also been affected by this FB screw up.

Owners of websites with this extension have contacted FB on multiple occasions in regard to this issue, that has been occurring for over two weeks, and received no response as yet. Why does it give users the option to report that it is an error of they have no intention of checking into it??

Help us fight Facebook's claim and win back the right to post our domain names again. Why should we be forced to buy new ones with a different extention to satisfy FB? This is simply a case of prejudice against an extension not any individual website.
I have proven this by posting the mistressjournals domain on my FB page on multiple occasions without the extention.

Even email addresses with a domain that has this extension are considered invalid by FB. How can they have the right to mass ban simply because these domains share one common factor...The .co.cc extension.

To date both mistressjournals.co.cc and between-thesheets.co.cc have been affected by the error message from FB claiming the website has been reported for abusive content or spam and prevented us from posting a link to our sites.

This is bull, neither site has been directly reported at all but the .co.cc extension has and we know there are many more of you out there with this same problem.

Lets see if we can't finally get FB to sit up and take notice of an issue that seems to have coincided with thier last "fix" and actually DO something about it for once.

Regardless of extension all websites have the right to display their link as long as said "link" not violate the TOS, which our links do not. Fb claims they can not be responsible for the content on these websites and they are right, they can't. But nor can they ban a link to them on that same basis.

Facebook has no legal right to ban a link based on content of the site itself unless said site has directly caused malicious harm or damage to Facebook and/or their servers or equipment through the use of software or virus on the site.

The "link" itself is the only thing on the Facebook site, and in no way does it violate the TOS.
What is next, some error has the .com or .net extension banned...stop this before it becomes out of hand Facebook.

Personally if this continues I can see a major drop off in use of my Facebook account since the primary use of it is for networking for my businesses and if I can't network, then what is the point of it. Guess i will just dust off my old MYSPACE Account.

Hypothetically: (IF it were a direct report of my site)

FB is not a PG 13 site. They do have the issue with some teens making accounts with incorrect birthdays and having access to adult content intended for those 18 years of age and over.

However, if someone has had access to my Mistress Journals Erotic Stories Forum due to a link posted on my FB page it is neither my fault nor that of Facebook but instead that of the parent for not enssuring your child was using his/her facebook account in a way that FB intended for those under 18. Quit blaming others for your lack of interest in what your child is doing and your poor parenting skills.

I personally assure you, I know where my child has been on the internet and what he is viewing, at all times. It's called monitoring, parenting, caring...try it!

*Below is a copy of the information found in the Help Center as posted by Facebook


"I received an error message saying that a link I want to post has been reported as abusive.
You're seeing this error message because the content that you've attem...
You're seeing this error message because the content that you've attempted to post on the site has already been reported as abusive by other Facebook users. You should be able to edit your account if you do not include the offending text or URLs.

If you believe there is no abusive content on the specific website you are trying to post, unfortunately, the web domain that hosts the website has already been identified as abusive. Facebook does not have control over content that is hosted by particular web domains. To request the removal of abusive web pages that may be hosted by this domain, you will have to contact the specific domain provider.
For more information about prohibited content, please visit the Warnings section of the Help Center.
/help/?faq=18262"




And Facebook, just an fyi...If you intend to update the TOS on a case by case basis for each and every issue you do not want to deal with or do not have an answer for, please make sure that it makes sense. In reading the above statement I can see a number of questions that arise from the particular wording and the obvious attempt someone has made to make it sound "official".

Any updates to the TOS must be made public before they are added in to a multi-user network and expected to be adhered to. No, ignorance is not an excuse but when users are not made aware of changes, especially when they occur after a report of a problem, then violations of added content can not be held against said users.
