Our final runner-up for the Lovehoney Vulgari Award for Erotic Fiction is Heather Day for her story Working Up A Sweat.
This fantastic piece of erotica was a runner-up in the long story category because of its sexy yet believable characters and clever choice of location.
Heather's story is based on lead character Sarah, her adventures with her Lelo Mia Rechargeable Vibrator and the new fantasy man at the gym... Will she get her guy? Download Working Up A Sweat now to find out!
Cheryl Mildenhall, Black Lace author and erotica mastermind, explained:
"Working Up A Sweat is an excellent example of getting down and dirty in a way that a lot of girls love.
The combination of sexy, sweaty bodies and 'female pitted against male' in a physical way is a sure fire winner. I do believe I've used the combination a few times in my own books!"
When we revealed the good news to Heather, she seemed exceptionally pleased which left us beaming for days!
Heather said: "I'm thrilled to have come runner up in Lovehoney's erotic short story competition.
I'm a big fan of erotica and thought I'd have a go at writing my own sexy story. I'm definitely going to keep on writing and I hope the competition has encouraged others to do the same. Thanks Lovehoney!"

Her fantastically sexy story Madam President stood out from the crowd for its clever setting, beautiful prose and scorchingly hot sex scenes!
When we asked Lily how she felt about her win, she replied:
"I'm ecstatic to have won The Lovehoney Vulgari Award for Erotic Fiction.
I hope Madam President reminds us that no matter what our responsibilities - running the country or deciding what to cook the family for dinner - each and everyone of us possesses a fountain of passion, a deep well of lust and a saucy sense of fun that needs to be released and celebrated whenever and however the opportunity arises."
This tale of presidential naughtiness features the Lovehoney 10 Function Remote Control Dream Egg 2.0 Vibrator and a strong female character that's sure to inspire and get pulses racing.
Cheryl Mildenhall, author of the infamous Devil and the Deep Blue Sea, explains of Lily's story:
"This story really had me hooked from the first sentence! There is realism, erotic tension and satisfaction, all written in the style of a true wordsmith.
Madam President is a delightful combination of The West Wing, books by Edwina Currie and of course, pure erotica. Well done!"

One of the women who specialises in female-friendly porn, and is continuing to break-down porn clichés and mainstream expectations, is Petra Joy.
Petra has been working in the erotic film industry for many years and with each movie she makes, she tears up the rule book even further in order to give women exactly what they want - gorgeous couplings, real bodies and hot sex.
Petra recently launched The Joy Awards - an innovative way of finding new, exciting and upcoming female erotic filmmakers who aren't afraid to capture what really turns them on.
The Joy Awards competition is open to all first-time female filmmakers and has many amazing prizes including a pjur goodie bag and the opportunity to be featured in the upcoming compilation DVD 'Her Porn, Volume Two'.
When it becomes so difficult to hold an erection that it stops you having sex altogether, you may have what’s termed ‘erectile dysfunction’.
The fantastic Petra Joy, director of such sensational adult movies as Sensual Seduction and Female Fantasies, has launched a new competition, aptly titled The Joy Award, to find new and talented female filmmakers that are brave enough to break porn cliches and to show sex in new ways.
And the prize? Well, as the competition is sponsored by Pjur lubricants, you know it's going to be good!
The three best female directed films are rewarded with cash prizes, Pjur goodie bags and the chance to be used in Petra Joy's Upcoming sexy film compilation 'Her Porn, Volume Two'.
The theme of the competition is 'What is erotic to you?' and aims to find lots of short, sexy films that show sensuality and sex in a new, creative and artistic way.
So how do you get your hands on that winning cash?
Simply make a sexy film that is no longer than 5 minutes in length on the subject of 'What is erotic to you?'
