One of the most prolific writers in the ES family, Chris-t6290 has been publishing here for almost exactly one year, since when a staggering number of stories has appeared. So the first question has to be, how on earth did this happen?
In March 2010, for the purpose of research, I joined an adult sex dating site and noticed that they had a section for erotic stories. The first one I submitted, 'Like mother like daughter', which I also had published in an adult magazine, many years ago (retaining the copyright as apposed to receiving a fee), was deemed to be too long, and so I started writing shorter stories.
Q. Which brought you to ES?
Having completed my research, for the three four part 'Sex-cort' stories - currently being submitted to ES on Mondays (appearing, once checked by Art on Tuesday), I quit the sex dating site and searched Google for somewhere more prominent to publish my stories (on the dating site the most reads a story got was around a 1,000 or less). I recall I tried four others on the search results list, and, getting nowhere with them (2 couldn't be bothered sending me a confirmation link e-mail), I subsequently joined ES a year ago this Christmas, and was completely knocked out by the amount of people, 7506!, who read my third story.
Q. What was the first story you published here?
The first one was 'the Handyman', brilliantly conceived: Samantha decides to sunbathe by her pool, where she continues to get engrossed in her latest erotic novel. Forgetting that she arranged for her handyman to call a day earlier, her hands start to wander over her body. Seeing this, being distracted, Eric causes his gardening tool to knock against some rockery, alerting Samantha to his presence. Calling him over, he eventually picks up the book, and, having read some of it, makes the point: (of the story) "if you made a film of the book, women like you would no doubt call it porn!". Logically, sexually explicit material, whether it be in written or visual form is the same, erotic or porn. Two words that originated in ancient Greece, thousands of years BC, and with wholly different meanings. NB. There is a very famous quotation: 'If you repeat a lie often enough, people will accept it as the truth.'
Q. How many stories have you published since then?
Writing stories for an internet site came easy, and so I have, to date, completed 230 stories, with three 16+ part serials, the next one: 'Diary of a MILF' to be submitted in early January 2012. There are another 71 story titles worked out, of which 10 are in progress - either started, or the summary and outline drawn up. Of those, I have so far published (as of 6th December 2011) 167. There would have been more, but my PC was taken away to be repaired in early September, and although I arranged with Art to submit those I had proof read in advance by e-mail, I had to wait almost two months for the people I had my extended warranty agreement with to sanction a replacement.
Q. What was your most recent one?
The one I submitted on Monday the 6th December, was the fourth part of 'Angela's Sex-cort' anthology. Angela, having a penchant for sexual role-play, encouraged by her ex-husband, plays out the ultimate 'role-play' scene, in which she, along the guy playing her husband are set upon by 'home invaders', who subject her to all manner of sexual acts, while he, tied up, looks on.
Q. How and when did you begin writing erotic stories?
In addition to 'Like mother, like daughter', which I wrote in the mid 1990's, I also wrote two stories in which a female character, much like the Sam character in 'Quantum leap' travels back in time, and takes over the body of a famous, notorious woman, Cleopatra and Joan of Arc, unfortunately, they were the only subjects I felt worth covering. I have, though, updated it for the present, and that imprint is naturally entitled: 'Quantum fuck'. So far I have produced 11 short imprints and two main ones, although they have not been identified with their imprint names.
Q. What is it about writing erotica that you most enjoy?
Without giving away my gender this early, which is my reason for inviting you to interview me (don't all rush to the end), I have a broad understanding of women, sexually, coupled with my ability to put myself in the place of my characters and visualize the eroticism on my MSI (Mind Scan Imager, as that which we project thoughts etc onto is referred to in Andrew Blake's film 'Night Trips'). In addition to that, and with a PC making it easy to type with, I enjoy writing as a whole, for the interest and pleasure of my audience.
Q. What is your favorite category to write in, and why?
Because I write fiction (I've only written, and published on ES, one story that relates to me), I am quite diverse with the scenarios, indeed, the only arena that I've centred on is 'the office', chiefly because my job criteria is admin/office, which resulted in eight stories under the 'Meet the boss' imprint, in addition to others.
Q. What, if any, difficulties do you face when writing - erotic writing difficulties and general writing difficulties? And how do you overcome them?
When I was writing short, 2,000 word stories, I'd complete a rough draft in a few hours. Now, and with readers on ES happy to accept longer stories, some half the length of a 260 page book, they take longer, and so, as I indicated earlier, I have some 10 in progress. The ones I find difficulty with are the two character stories. With three plus characters you've got more subject matter. On odd occasions, I can become stuck for the right adjective, in which case I type 'WORD' and highlight it green. Then, when I come to proof read/edit the story I've got more time to dwell on it without otherwise losing the thread of the story as a whole.
Q. You use quite an array of adjectives in your stories, what's your secret?
For me, every author, no matter what level they are, should have two books. A dictionary (quite obviously), mine is a 'Concise Oxford' from 1986; and a 'Thesaurus', which contains synonyms, alternative adjectives for words, thereby avoiding the use of the same word in close proximity. When I started writing on a regular basis, I'd have an idea for a word, and looked up one that was close to it until I found an adjective that conveyed the right level. From there, I started a list with three columns to an A4 page, which is currently 9.25 columns long, and regularly added to.
Q. In general terms - how do you feel about the "outside world's'' perception of erotic writing?
I'm glad you asked me this. We are supposed to be living in an age of sexual equality, but, as I mentioned earlier, 'Porn' and 'Erotic' have different, historic meanings (see the relevant pages of the 'Complete Oxford dictionary). Erotic evolved from 'Eros' the Greek God of erotic = sexual love, while Porn, up to 1857 (and beyond, 1986 Concise Oxford Dictionary) meant prostitute, in general, a woman. The obscene aspect of pornography (graphy meaning the depiction and description of the word which precedes it, with 'o' being a connecting letter: porn+o+graphy), related to writings of, by prostitutes, which could glamorise the profession, and so 'corrupt' young girls, as is the case in the UK. Realistically speaking, our bodies, in particular women's bodies, are sexual, and with it erotic; capable of both giving and receiving sexual pleasure. Now, what is so wrong with that?
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"?
In the case of one ES user member, who regularly reads my stories and sends me glowing comments with a maximum vote of 10, to show my appreciation, I asked them if I could write a story about them. Having welcomed my offer, they sent me a story outline, along with a brief description of themselves. Looking at it, I realised the scenario would be short and so I added an outline and a second, build up day, completing the story: 'Lacyholdups, Marcus and...' in just two sittings.
Q. How do you feel when you receive negative comments or very low votes from readers?
Oddly enough, some such comments have been unfounded. In those cases, where they are private ones, I'll send an e-mail correcting them or invite them to explain their assumption. If it's a public comment, then I'll post my response on the story page.
Q. What kind of stories would you never write?
Apart from the four categories on the 'story submissions page', ones which involve blackmail or coercion applied to women, especially as my female characters are quite strong. Oddly enough, I toyed with two story scenarios but found it hard to justify them as a stand alone story. One, involving a young female widow occurs in a graveyard. Some months ago, I thought about it again. How she came to be widowed so young, and then it came to me. The loss of her husband, friend, lover took its toll. So was born the first episode of: 'the Deviant'.
Q. And do you read, and respond to, other writers on the site? Who are your favorites?
I quite like the author, Hot Rider's stories. She is able to write in a way I can't, which is why I read such stories; there's no chance of my being influenced by them. Like many other ES authors, most of Hot Riders stories are about her and her acquaintances, while she's also written a few fictional ones as well. Because of this, I encouraged her to consider writing, and having her stories published.
Q. Do you remember the first pornography you ever saw?
In the early 1990's, with Britain being affected to some extent by the EU (European Community), unofficial video's became available. I actually received an unsolicited film (probably from someone who'd purchased a 'list' of people's names that had an interest in adult material) entitled 'Legal Tender', which is a play on 'Miami Vice'. Watching the film, I was captivated by the three main female leads: Aja, Victoria Paris and in particular 'Tracey Adams'. Nowadays, and what with the internet, you can actually watch clips and even complete films on certain sites.
Q. How do you feel about same sex relationships, both personally and as a writer?
For me, the point of sexual intimacy is for person 'A', irrespective of gender to give a woman sexual pleasure, so I have no problem in writing stories with girl to girl sex in them especially as a woman's erogenous zone extends from the hair on her head all they way down her body to the 'big toe'.
Q. How long does it take for you to write a story? Could you talk us through the process?
I type out what I call a rough draft; if I took my time thinking about otherwise correcting it, I'd lose the thread, and interest. Because I have such a large archive of stories, I leave them a while, and then return to it afresh to proof read and edit it, something which other ES members should do. I actually have a rolling calendar, with the story imprint number to the right of the date, which is set in advance; so I'm pretty well organised.
Q. What do you think is the best story you have published here?
Having written so many, it's hard to choose. Off hand, the two which come to mind are: 'Like mother, like daughter', mainly because it was the first story I ever wrote, and had published, and 'House party', which is episode 6 of Confessions of Mary. That one was actually a replacement for another story about one of Mary's friends, and which I deemed may, because of its content, be too closely positioned to 'Mary's secretary'; you'd need to read the story, along with two following ones, to understand why.
Q. You have a certain style of presentation, would you care to elucidate?
The common rule is subject verb. Okay, if the author is narrating the story. However, there is no pronoun for 'I', if one of the stories characters is telling it: 'I climbed on the bed, and...' In addition to that, sentences become statements instead of flowing, as mine do. In order to lessen the impact of 'I', at the start of paragraphs and sentences, the verb is 'participled' and moved to the front: 'Climbing on the bed, I... and...' thereby, moving the 'I' further in, removing the conjunction 'and', and, in some cases, using and to join two sentences. Fundamentally, in most cases, 'participle' verbs can only be placed at the start of a paragraph and sentence, other than that they are obsolete.
Q. Since answers to the remaining questions would, in some respects, indicate your gender, Chris, and you've undertaken this interview to make it known, which are you, and what was your reason for not revealing it beforehand?
Chris is actually my eldest sister's name; I am a male, her brother. The reason goes back to the premise of the film 'Mirage'. Ashlyn Gere's character, having written an erotic novel, has difficulty in getting it taken seriously because she is a woman. Consequently, she tells the next publisher that she's representing a male author who is incapacitated. Accepting the manuscript, as it's read the erotic scenes within it come to life on the screen. Because I, a man, write from a woman's perspective, female readers may have been put off by such explicit detail, something which is notably lacking in stories written by other men. I remember, also, years ago, on an edition of Rikki Lake. The show was similar to 'blind date', with three men and three women, asking questions. Although the women asked some somewhat risqué ones, when the men asked questions with a similar tone, the women objected to their frankness.
Q. What is a major turn on for you during sex?
Foreplay. Prolonged foreplay, for the purpose of making my lover post orgasmic, that way they have no need to fake their pleasure. Consequently, I've never had to initiate sexual intimacy, which is as it should be, when the woman is in a positive state of mind. My character, Jenna, put it succinctly at the end of 'the Missing train ticket': 'Men, when are they going to realize they are instruments, but never (sex) objects, of a women's pleasure.'
Q. How about a major turn off?
I find having my nipples licked to be bordering on irritating; it somehow sets off a negative feeling.
Q. Do you have any fantasies that you would like to fulfill?
Considering that a woman's God given sexuality is superior to a man's, she being able to have multiple orgasms and not needing to rest, while accommodating more than three men sexually, I'd much rather have been born a woman. For that reason, I write and fantasise as if I am a woman.
Q. What's the kinkiest thing you have ever done?
This may surprise you, but, I have been contentedly celibate for over 5 years. My love making has been varied more than adventurous. Having separated from my ex-wife, who I still saw intimately for some years after, I had a torrid 2-year affair with a woman who was also separated, from her otherwise violent husband, and 12 years younger than me. After 12 months, she plucked up the unnecessary courage to tell me she was bi-sexual, and although I told her I was comfortable with it, nothing came of it, which was okay by me; whatever she was happy with.
Q. How much of yourself do you include in your stories?
Unlike most men, I haven't lost touch of my feminine side; I'll choke up at a good film, 'Ghost', starring Patrick Swayze and Demi Moore, for example. Although my stories are pure fantasy, if I was a woman, I can see me indulging in some of them.
Q. Which category of story, on ES, do you most enjoy reading?
Those written by female authors, which include 'anal sex'. Don't get me wrong, I'm not some male pervert, it's just that the act itself is so taboo, that it takes uninhibited, liberal women, who are at ease with their sexuality to write about it; good for them.
Q. Now, is there anything you'd like to tell us about yourself?
I'm an independent, divorced male living in South East London. I built up a fairly large record collection, which, until my old PC first broke down in April 2010, I had begun transferring to CD via my computer. I also have over 1,000 films on DVD some 700 of which were transferred from video; I prefer a good film to a TV drama, especially as they are serialised. I also have several US TV series: Seinfeld, Larry Sanders, NYPD Blue with Jimmy Smits, X-files 1-8, LA Heat, and Moonlighting, Columbo and Miami Vice, three TV series from my younger years. I eat healthily, some 14 different planned meals a fortnight, so I'm average weight and build for my 6ft frame. Being a Capricorn, I've retained my youngish looks with people under-guessing my age, and, on one occasion, by quite a bit. What with the current level of unemployment in Britain, as many as 4 million the press announced over a year ago, I'm currently inbetween jobs, and so writing stories at least allows me to keep up my level of admin skills: with Microsoft Word and PowerPoint, I'm adjudged to be expert level with office 2000 and Advanced with Excel. More recently, from Office 2007 - which I also have - Access, which is a database creation app', has been elevated to the higher levels of Office.
Q. Is there anything else you would like to say to the readers of this interview and your fans? Now is your chance...
Many thanks for taking the time to read and vote on my stories. Your interest has encouraged me to, where possible, write longer ones, which you appear to prefer. A special, warm thank you to Lacyholdups, #1 fan, hopefully my being a man doesn't affect the way you view my stories, or me, and I hope that we can continue communicating (by e-mail) together. And lastly, thank you and Art for giving me an arena in which to share my stories.
