I would like to leave politics at the door, I’m overwhelmed with the election, results and our future as a nation. I need to forget for one evening that there is life outside the bubble of the Erotic Literary Salon.

Dhami Boo a summer regular reader at the Salon (reading to the sounds of his wonderful handmade instruments) reposted the following on fb.

IMPORTANT TO REMEMBER THIS: posted by Clyde M. Hall: THINGS A PRESIDENT CANNOT DO:

Reverse any Supreme Court decision
This includes Obergefell v. Hodges, which made same-sex marriage a constitutional right; Whole Woman’s Health v. Hellerstedt, which reaffirmed a woman’s right to choose first articulated in Roe v. Wade, another Supreme Court case. Grutter v. Bollinger, which instituted affirmative action, the entire body of Civil Rights case law, plus anything related to due process, including the right of minors to due process, your right to an attorney, Miranda rights, inadmissible evidence, etc.
(Even if Trump appoints the worst possible SC nominee, they still can’t reverse any of these decisions without a really significant case coming before the Court with new facts, and then they have to write an opinion stating how this case is different than that other case…it’s unlikely to happen.)
Write law or repeal any existing law
While traditionally, presidents have exerted influence on the legislative agenda (see, Obama’s role in advancing and promoting the Affordable Care Act) they cannot actually write or pass legislation. Bills, joint resolutions, concurrent resolutions, and simple resolutions must be introduced in the House by a Representative.
Presidents cannot strike down law. Only Congress can repeal laws, and only the Supreme Court can strike them down as unconstitutional.
Presidential influence is just that—influence.
(And if—for example—you are hated by 95% of the party you joined last week, and burned all your goddamn bridges by insulting them at various points in your campaign…..they’re unlikely to partner with you in crafting legislation.)
Make any law or declaration that infringes in any way on the rights of the states
So in the US, most of the rights are reserved to the states. You name it, it’s a state-run power. Criminal procedure and law? States. Medicare and Medicaid? States. The definition of marriage? States. Insurance, health departments, housing, unemployment benefits, public education, all these are state programs. And the president cannot infringe on those powers given to the states.
(This is why down-ticket voting is so important, because Mike Pence as governor of Indiana had 800x the power he’s going to have as VP.)
Declare war.
This one is the most complicated, because with the advent of our “conflicts” in Vietnam, Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, etc. there has been a significant shift in the articulation of the war doctrine, and it is one of the least restricted of the president’s “restricted” powers. But, despite all that, a president still has no power to declare war.
Unilaterally appoint heads of administrative departments
Unilaterally make treaties with foreign nations
Essentially, while presidents have a lot of power, it’s mostly unofficial—they can’t make sweeping laws, they can’t overturn existing rights, the most they can do is refuse to enforce them (which is absolutely a threat! and a problem!) but we aren’t electing de facto royalty here.

Best Gay Erotica Call For Submissions, Dirty Words-Erotica Readers & Writer’s Association

Below the newsletter from ERA-ADMIN Erotic Lure October 2016 you will find a call for submissions for Best Gay Erotica. This is a great website if you are a serious writer and/or reader of erotica.

erwa_erotic_mind

Dear Debauched Denizens of the Darkness,

 

By the twitching of my thumbs,

Something wicked this way comes.

 

Well, to be honest, it’s actually other parts of my body that are twitching as I swoop through the (literally) fantastic October edition of the Erotica Readers & Writers Association website. As All Hallow’s Eve approaches, ERWA celebrates the salaciously supernatural and the horrifically horny. Clicking from page to page, I’m overwhelmed by paroxysms of prurient passion….

 

Too much? Okay, I’ll rein in the alliteration and give you a quick tour, starting in the Erotica Gallery, where you’ll find a slew of stories focusing on magical lust and erotic horror. Blood-thirsty flora, a vengeful murderess, a smart ass exorcist and a clit with a mind of its own—our traditional La Petite Mort theme has inspired the ERWA authors to new heights of creativity. Across the page, our Awesome Authors section includes everything from historical fiction to paranormal romance, all breathlessly erotic.

 

Indulge your dark desires:

http://www.erotica-readers.com/GD/S/Erotic_Fiction.htm

 

If you’re still craving more hot fiction after your sojourn in the Gallery, click over to our Books for Sensual Readers pages. We’ve assembled a rich and varied collection of featured titles for this issue, so you’re sure to find something that appeals. Delores Swallows explores the irresistible attraction of opposites in his short story collection Unlikely, while Giselle Renarde, Kendra Edge and the irredeemably filthy Lexi Wood team up to expose The Secret Life of Sitters. Cheri Verset’s collection So Wrong 12 offers nearly 80,000 words of taboo erotica, and Sharon Lynn Fisher shares her outrageously original erotic fairy tales in Before She Wakes.

 

If you’re looking for longer stories, check out Avery Kaye’s Royally Wicked, the escapades of a prince in Las Vegas, or Taisha Demay’s tale of a searing office affair, Love, Truth and Consequences: Playing Dirty. I’ve put Candace Blevin’s paranormal erotic romance Be Careful What You Ask For on my TBR list, intrigued by her premise of a half-werewolf/half-human who wants to be wholly wolf. Checking Him Out, Devyn Morgan’s gay erotic romance that pairs a shy librarian and a macho construction worker, sounds delightful. For FF fiction, I recommend Giselle Renarde’s Taboo Lesbian Erotica: 10 Scandalous Stories. I haven’t read it—yet—but I have no doubt it’s as sexy and intelligent as Giselle’s other work.

 

We have dozens more titles for your browsing pleasure, including vintage and modern classics, sensual romance and sexy sex education. Enjoy zero frustration: any book that casts a spell can be yours in a couple of clicks. Just use our affiliate links and give us a treat: your purchases help support the best free adult site on the web.

 

Revel in dirty words:

http://erotica-readers.com/ERA/EB/Popular_Erotic_Books.htm

 

Did someone say porn? If not, why not? When you’re tired of reading and just want to watch, head for our Adult Movies section. Top billing goes to “Babysitting the Baumgartners”, a steamy blockbuster based on the novel by ERWA’s very own fearless leader Selena Kitt. Real life couple Anikka Albrite and Mick Blue star as the sexually adventurous Doc and Mrs. Baumgartner, who seduce their long-time baby sitter, played by Sarah Luv. Enjoy more of Mick’s and Anikka’s special erotic spark in “Mick Loves Anikka”, as Mick indulges his lover’s every forbidden fantasy, from girl-on-girl rimming to double penetration. Another couples top pick is “Tales from the Edge: Hotwife Bound”, a mix of exhibitionism, cuckolding and BDSM.

 

If none these suggestions ring your bell, explore our extensive list of other titles, conveniently categorized and equipped with buy links for instant gratification.

 

Experience the magic of movies:

http://www.erotica-readers.com/ERA/AM/5_Favorite_Couples_Movies.htm

 

Adult movies are a great way to relax while getting off. If you’re more the action-oriented type,  though, don’t miss the Sex Toy Playground. This  month’s Sex Toy Scuttlebutt focuses on toys for couples. Personally, I’m dying to try the Fetish Fantasy Spinning Swing. Then there’s the Tongue Star Pleasure Vibe, which is just what it sounds like—a mini-vibrator to enhance oral sex. Talk about creativity!

 

Wondering how to use Ben Wa balls? Confused about lubricants? Curious about prostate stimulation? The Playground includes links to frank and fun articles about these and many more sex-toy-related topics, penned by the experts from Adam & Eve, Good Vibrations and our other reputable suppliers.

 

You can never have too many toys:

http://erotica-readers.com/ERA/ST/Sex_Toy_Scuttlebutt.htm

 

Inside the Erotic Mind this month, you’ll find a sometimes arousing and always provocative discussion of body piercing. Expect strong opinions on both sides. Add your own thoughts by clicking Participate!

 

Dare to share:

http://erotica-readers.com/ERA/ITEM/Body_Piercing.htm

 

Finally, if you write explicit fiction or non-fiction (or if you’ve ever been tempted to try!), do visit the Author Resources pages, the most extensive list of erotic publishing opportunities anywhere on the web. Three new publishers have just been added to the compendium: Inkubus for gay erotica, MoFo Pubs seeking literary erotica, and Deep Desires Press for erotica and erotic romance. There are also dozens of calls for anthologies including a new vampire anthology entitled “Ravenous”, fiction focusing on wanderlust—with the emphasis on lust—and Rob Rosen’s call for Best Gay Erotica Volume 3.

 

The page features opportunities for novelists, short story writers, poets and essayists, in every erotic sub-genre. Meanwhile, click on the ERWA Archive link for access to ten years worth of amazing articles by top authors on topics related to the craft and business of writing. Whether you’re an experienced author or just getting started, the archives are an incredible resource.

 

These days, we publish our craft articles at the ERWA blog – http://erotica-readers.blogspot.com. Our contributors talk about everything from writing sex scenes to doing promotion.

 

Follow your Muse:

http://www.erotica-readers.com/ERA/AR/Erotica_Authors_Resources.htm

 

I did it! A complete Erotic Lure almost entirely avoiding alliteration. Do I get a treat? Those fur-lined hand-cuffs look appealing…. Sure, I’ll wear the naughty nurse costume if you want, as long as you’ll let me use the swing…

 

Wishing you a month of chills and thrills,

 

Lisabet

Erotic Video to Sell Beautiful Gifts-Lingerie-Love Poems-Flower Crown

Krystle, a contributor and regular attendee at the Salon, has embarked on a new venture – fabulous gifts inspired by women of color. But honestly, they are for women of all colors. Thank you to all who influenced the choices of product at the anya lust site, they are lovely. …and I’m this little (according to society mature) white chick who is definitely hoping I get one of these pieces as a gift.

Content taken from site:

A pretty girl pulled open her drawer to discover that she was missing the most luxurious lingerie.

She decided to scour the boutiques in her city to see what she could find. After an exhausting search, she came home, poured herself a glass of wine, and opened her laptop. And then she discovered…

WINTERHAVEN_CROP_1500-0545

Inspired by the sunkissed girls and dark beauties of the world, decadent sensuality, and intoxicating femininity, Anya Lust was created for free-spirited women to revel in pleasure. We dream of weekend trips to Paris, intimate nights in private, dancing on the beach, never-ending sunkissed skin, indulging in fantasy, drifting through lust and love, and discovering what makes life so incredibly beautiful.

Here, you’ll find a curated collection of the most gorgeous luxury lingerie for you to indulge in. We hand select from designers around the world who work with expert seamstresses throughout England, France, and beyond, using the finest lace and silk to create silhouettes that flatter the female form. We hope that you’ll treasure each and every piece.

Now that you’ve found us, you’ll never have to search again. Welcome to the land of lingerie dreams.

FOR NEW FLAMES

Buying lingerie for your girlfriend or lover is one of the best gifts you can give. She’ll feel amazing in anything you pick out for her and you get to enjoy every bit of it. Two things that you might not be sure of: her size and her style. Don’t have the luxury of sneaking into her room to discover what will fit her best? You might want to go with something a little flowy like a beautiful robe, an enticing babydoll, or dress. A gorgeous flower crown to complement her outfit or the dreamy words of Pablo Neruda are perfect additions, as well. As for style, even if you select lingerie that she wouldn’t normally buy, the thrill of trying something new is a gift in itself. If she tends to wear softer, feminine outfits, go for lace and silk styles. And if her style is more formfitting dresses and sexy ensembles, go for pieces with soft leather, mesh, and ouvert elements.

FOR FAMILIAR LOVES

Maybe you’ve seen your girlfriend, wife, or lover dress up plenty of times, or maybe this is the first. Either way, you might have a better idea of her overall style and her size, giving you more free rein with your selection of gifts. But, still consider what she loves: Daring and seductive? Feminine and playful?
