• Longing for Toys by Virginia Crowley

    Oh my ... are you ever in for a treat this month. Virginia Crowley's Longing for Toys, one of the horniest, dirtiest, filthiest reads I've ever clapped eyes on (and I've seen a few) is the Lovehoney Erotic Book Club Book of the Month for February. When you buy this primer in how best to use remote-control vibrators you'll get your very own free Chix Stick mini vibe, so you can play out scenes from the novel to your heart's content.

    Don't forget to discuss your findings - with or without the vibe -with other erotic fiction fans in the Erotic Book Club forums.

    In this masterpiece of financial and sexual fem dom, Robert and James - two upstanding young professionals with bigoted, conservative, middle-class girlfriends - begin a descent into wholesale financial ruin and erotic degradation the night they meet the beautiful and cunning stripper, Michele. As Robert's character erodes from that of an altruistic cancer researcher into a drooling plaything around the manicured fingers of his keeper, Robert's fiancee and his best friend try to help him. Unfortunately, their involvement also subjects them to the irresistible lure of Michele and her allies. A momentum of desire and desperation is unleashed. And before long, the entire Yuppie community hovers on the brink of erotic despair and moral ruin.

    We interviewed Portia earlier this year and caught up with her recently to ask more about Suite Seventeen...

    Suite Seventeen by Portia Da Costa "'Suite Seventeen contains all Portia's trademark treats from the arousing narrative, a wicked blend of deviant episodes, and an undercurrent of pragmatic and poignant romance.", said Ashley Lister, Erotica Readers and Writers Association.

    How did you first come to start writing erotic fiction?

    I'd just finished a Masters in 20th Century Literature and was wondering what to do next. I like writing and I like sex so thought I'd try my hand at erotica. I started off with short stories then moved on to novels a couple of years later.
