  • Cleis wants to toy with you this spring

    It's still 2 months out from releasing, but we have a cover and TOC for Come Again - an anthology of sex toy erotica from Cleis Press.

    In this book, "sex toys" go beyond silicone devices in rainbow colors. The stories in Come Again do include traditional vibrators and nipple clamps, but they also offer dolls, bikes, orgasm machines, vegetables, ice, and other toys both store-bought and homemade - proving "anything can become a sex toy in the right hands," in the words of editor Rachel Kramer Bussel. Necessity is the mother of invention and all that.

    The toy in my story "The Cure for the Common Lay" is virtual reality - a fictional, futuristic version, that is. This isn't Oculus Orgy but rather a collaborative, interactive VR environment that probably won't exist in real life for quite some time. A woman who's an early tech adopter (and bored with real life hookups) participates in a trial for a giant virtual play party. Guests can be any gender, age or appearance they want and can interact with the environment and each other merely by concentrating elements into existence - whether they're increasing the sensitivity of their skin or changing into a corset or manifesting their favorites fantasies.

    I feel like that sounds kind of complicated and dry. Trust me, there's lots of sex in it. Including a prolonged underwater threeway where nobody has to breathe because, you know, it's virtual.
