Charlie Drake may share a name with an old-time English comedian, but there is nothing male, or comedic, about her writing. In short, she is HOT, as anyone who has read the twelve chapters (so far) of The Sexual Awakening of a War Widow will tell you. Her first story appeared here back in August 2007, but it's only recently that Ms Drake has really hit her stride, as she explains. "'Going straight- the harder I cum the less I fall' was my first post and I really messed up the paragraphs and everything, but never got around to sorting it out." In fact, she published just one other shirt story, and then came "a four year gap which coincides with my university studies and I have recently posted a twelve part erotic novel I am working on." That is 'The Sexual Awakening of a War Widow,' and it is not autobiographical!
"I'm a mother and a wife first and foremost- I love my family with all of my heart and would never do anything to jeopardise the relationships that matter most to me.
"I'm 35, 5 foot 7 tall, blue eyed with long auburn hair- my husband recently persuaded me to allow him to post pictures of me on my profile, (to preserve my anonymity, my husband, Jack Spence, and I share an ES account), so that should adequately reveal my physical prowess, or otherwise.
"Personality wise, I am easy going, open minded, I think I'm quite kind-hearted and generous natured. I'd like to think I'm an optimist! I have recently completed my University Studies so at the moment I am enjoying being at home chilling, going on day trips and writing in my newly acquired spare time, but when my husband and I are alone we enjoy fucking each other senseless and indulging in fantasy's whenever the opportunities present themselves. Politically you could say that I am a 'non-militant feminist'. That is to say, I believe in gender equality and all which, that encapsulates, but I disagree that equality can be achieved by demeaning men to fit the model of more lowly social status nor by women acting like men in traditional male roles at home, at work or in society. I treat people as equals if they treat me as an equal and I have little time or tolerance for any other attitude."
Q. How and when did you begin writing erotic stories?
My husband introduced me to the joys of erotic literature about five years ago. He bought me a novel by Abby Lee that really turned me on and on seeing the affect it had on me began writing stories for me afterwards, (he was a well paid sex slave). He persuaded me to try my hand at writing Erotica and even though I had very little confidence in my ability at first, the feedback I have received on my novel so far has made me feel awfully glad that I did.
Q. Have you published anywhere other than ES.com?
Not at the present time.
Q. What is it about writing erotica that you most enjoy?
It fires my imagination, fuels my libido, but most importantly it helps me actualise scenarios that I would not feel safe or comfortable walking into without prior thought. Sharing sexual partners or participating in group sex isn't guaranteed to be a mind blowing, liberating experience and there can be repercussions if you rush into things without properly considering the potential consequences. I/we've not really had too bad a time in any way, but I know people who have ended up regretting their participation so I exercise caution before taking part in anything- especially in first times, meetings and/or environments. Writing things down helps me be prepared and also builds the tension prior to participation.
Q. What is your favorite category to write in, and why?
I like to write about MMF threesomes the most, (closely followed by group sex), and I think this is because I had long fantasised about multiple partners before I tried it and found the reality more stimulating than I imagined I would. Sharing and orgies are my biggest turn-on's... outside of the intimacy of my long-term relationship of course ; )
Q. How much of yourself do you include in your stories?
I'd say the fact/fiction ratio of my stories is around 50/50. I take the truth and twist it, exaggerate it, amend it, etc, to suit my purposes, but I do have a very active sex life with my husband and we are both very open minded so much of what we do is included and disguised to protect people's identities and interests. Jack helps me with ideas a lot. He writes a lot of none erotic fiction and is really good at taking a true story or ten and bending them out of all proportion to create false accounts that are underpinned by actual happenings. I take a great deal of inspiration from his thoughts and methods and my latest offering is a semi-autobiographical tale of both our lives.
Q. Is there anything that happens in your stories that you would really like to try in "real life", but haven't yet been able to?
I have always wanted to try double penetration with two men. I have done so with a vibrator and one partner numerous times, but the opportunity with two men has never really presented itself or occurred to me at an optimum time.
Q. Does your partner or any of your friends know that you write? What do they think?
My husband encourages me and is my muse, my proof reader and editor, (not to mention fantasy facilitator)- a few of my closest friends know that I write erotica, but I am at pains to ensure that my family never know as they are very religious and would probably disown me if they knew what I was really like.
Q. What, if any, difficulties do you face when writing - erotic writing difficulties and general writing difficulties? And how do you overcome them?
I sometimes get stuck in the flow between scenes and use far too much dialogue as a means of transition to another part of the drama- I also struggle with finding words to describe genitalia and feel I overuse the same ones too often. I overcome these problems, as well as they can be overcome, with the assistance of my husband and/or by taking a rest from the story/scene and going back to it after a couple of days.
Q. How about in more general terms - how do you feel about the "outside world"'s perception of erotic writing?
Beyond the prospect of my family finding out that I write erotica and consequently discovering my sexual habits I honestly don't care. Almost everyone in the world has sex- if it wasn't for sex none of us would be here to complain about sex and if the stoics and the prudes dislike sex so much then they should, a: turn the other cheek and/or b: act like grown ups about the very biological impulses that serve to perpetuate the species.
Q. One thing that I love about ES is that you very quickly build up a community of fans, who enjoy writing to and hearing from their favorite authors. Do you have any favorite topics that have surfaced in these "conversations"?
I've been talking to this one guy in particular, (Rick), who gave me so much emotional support and good sound advise as I wrote through my first draft that I think I'm a little bit smitten. I've never been one for forming 'Internet relationships', but I quickly found myself spilling my most intimate details to him. Our conversations are akin to meeting someone you really like in a bar and getting engrossed in a deep and meaningful conversation- usually just before your friends pull you away to another bar! Rick is a great guy to know and offers some amazing insights into both the male and female psyche and has helped me complete the first draft of my novel.
Q. How do you feel when you receive negative comments or very low votes from readers?
I value almost any feedback on my work- excepting mindless abuse or mindful ridicule. If people take the time to read and pass comment then I will respect their opinions and take criticism on board. Being able to accept constructive criticism is a good way to learn and improve as a writer. High marks and positive comments are obviously nice to receive, but aren't nearly as helpful as well thought out suggestions or guidance given with candidness. I'm a grown woman and I can take criticism, but I've been very fortunate on ES to find a reader who is both complimentary and honest in a very helpful way.
Q. And do you read, and respond to, other writers on the site? Who are your favorites?
I must confess that I haven't really read much on ES lately. This is due to my studies and then writing my novel straight afterwards, but I feel I should participate more as soon as I can. I used tor read lots via my hubby's account, but never commented as the message would appear in his name. I have cast plenty of votes though and the favourites I recall most offhand are, (forgive me if I have the names wrong- it's been a while), Lady Grey, Ella and JustFunSex. There are many other writers whose work I have read and enjoyed, but their names escape me.
Q. Do you remember the first pornography you ever saw?
I think I was around 12 years old and my friend and I found a porn magazine on the path as we were doing our newspaper round. We looked at the naked women and giggled, but I remember how it made me curious to know exactly what the girls were feeling while in those positions and wearing such expressions of pleasure. I began masturbating while taking my baths soon after then.
Q. What's the kinkiest thing you have ever done?
There's a lot to choose from and it would depend on context and perspective at the times in question, but my husband and I recently seduced a friend who'd been jilted by his wife for a woman and it was a massive turn on. The four of us are quite good friends, (although neither of them knew nothing of our 'hobbies' until the hubby found out the hard way), so it felt exciting and wrong at first- naughty but delicious, but the thought of breaking the 'friendship' taboo was too much to resist. He was staying with us for a couple of nights and on the second night of drinking and talking my hubby and I decided to 'cheer him up'. I felt a modicum of guilt for a while, but as she is currently having regular sex a woman it only seemed fair that he got something out of the separation too! As far as I know it's still a closely guarded secret, although the inevitability of being found out appeals to me and I suppose I hope the eventual revelation leads to further sexual adventures.
Q. Do you have any fantasies that you would like to fulfill?
It varies. I mentioned earlier that I would like to try double penetration and sometimes I would like to have three men all to myself, (I've had two on many occasions, but never three all for me), but the fantasy I would most like to fulfil is to write, act, direct and produce my own personal porn movie. The premise involves an invite only 'behind closed doors' private sex party that takes place in the middle of a celebratory gathering in a large multi-storey building. I like the idea of erotic exclusivity in amongst conventional surroundings.
Q. What is a major turn on for you during sex?
With my husband it's when he pulls out and then goes down to give me oral, then goes back again- alternating until I explode with lust. In group situations I like it when a man has the courage to lap at my clit while another man has the courage to fuck me at the same time. I have witnessed some embarrassing yet hilarious outcomes to my asking for this, but when it works it gives me such an intense orgasm that I'll put any man at risk of similar humiliation when the mood takes me.
Q. How about a major turn off?
To be totally and utterly honest the thought of putting my tongue on a man's hairy a-hole is enough to make me sick and on the two occasions I have been asked to do this I have point blank refused and ended up regretting my decision to have sex with the men in question at all. Perhaps then it's the 'lecherous pervert' that seems capable of consuming most men who turns me off rather than a specific act, but when male eyes glaze over and they are completely at the mercy of their impulses I tend to want to leave the immediate vicinity hurriedly. I like my men to be completely in control of themselves and their urges.
Q. How do you feel about same sex relationships, both personally and as a writer?
I often have bi-curious moments and have shared myself with women before, but I have no interest in same sex relationships beyond that. As a writer I have had few problems describing lesbian, bi or heterosexual scenarios, but I have yet to attempt to write man on man action. I suppose I have avoided it because it seems so alien to me in terms of physical feeling and emotional allure. I do intend to consult some gay friends on the matter to help me better understand the sexual connections and lustful rapport between consenting adults of male gender and this will form part of my next writing project.
Q. Do you explore these feelings, positive and negative in your stories?
I always try to advocate an anti-discriminatory ethos in all I write. I am of the opinion that lust is lust and love is love and that all expressions of this should be equally acceptable in an open and free society. Life is far too short for petty prejudices that lead to hate and destruction- I prefer to live in peace and grow as a person and think everyone else should try it too.
Q. How long does it take for you to write a story? Could you talk us through the process?
I don't really have an established method or timescale for writing. It's all quite new to me and at the moment I feel as if I'm being coached toward finding my voice. My ideas begin as whims that are generally based on personal experience and fantasy- little inklings that seem to grow without my trying, and when they take coherent shape I begin to write them down. My last story was in my head for the best part of a year and then I wrote it all down in the space of six weeks- the end result is now posted on ES in its first draft form. The sequel appears to be following a similar pattern. I have lots of ideas, but they feel as if they're floating around my mind and fixing themselves together to make some sort of sense. I hope I can articulate the process better once I have more experience of writing unaided.
Q. What do you think is the best story you have published here?
This is an easy question to answer, 'The Sexual Awakening of a War Widow', without any doubt.
Q. Is there anything else you would like to say to the readers of this interview and your fans? Now is your chance...
I suppose I would mainly like to thank my readers for their input and support and ask anyone else who may read my work to offer their honest critique and not worry that I may take offence at anything they choose to say about my words. I am a very honest and passionate person and I respond well to similar. I will also endeavour to reciprocate any kind gesture of reviewing my work with a review of my own, (provided that the reader is also a writer of course).
Q. Finally, do you have a website or a blog, where your fans can visit and maybe learn more about you?
I'm afraid the extent of my writing career begins and end's at Erotic Stories at the moment and for reasons pertaining to the preservation of my reputation through anonymity, all of my online personas are separate from this site. As such I would prefer to not reveal my personal details outside of here. I have a daughter to think of and it may also affect my husbands' employment if we were known writers and readers of pornography- not to mention the negative affect any revelations of our sexual exploits would have on family members. I sincerely hope you understand my reasoning. cx
