McErotic has been publishing with ES.com since May 2002, when he gifted us with "Jack and Jill". Since that time, McErotic has published more than fifty new tales, but that's not all.
I also have another account that I use for writing lesbian stories with half-a-dozen more. I thought it would be interesting to see if I got different feedback posing as a woman compared to being a man. The best feedback was from a lesbian who told me that I seemed to know the lesbian scene really well in the city where she lived, whereas of course I'm actually a guy who's never had anything to do with the lesbian scene there. Another lesbian, who knows who I am, told me that if she didn't know better she'd have been convinced I was actually a lesbian who'd had the experience of seducing a straight woman.
Q. What was your most recent one?
The most recent story is "Tungsten" about a rock musician with a very long tongue.
Q. Now, is there anything you'd like to tell us about yourself?
Hmm, I'm not sure how much to reveal. In real life I'm a high-tech marketing consultant working in Silicon Valley. I'm in my mid-50s and I live in San Francisco.
Q. How and when did you begin writing erotic stories?
I started writing stories when I was in a long-distance relationship. Stories seemed like a way of being sexual with my girlfriend when we weren't together. Sometimes I'd read them to her over the phone while she masturbated. Sometimes I just emailed them to her. And sometimes I'd record myself reading them and send them to her on CD (this was pre iPod days).
Q. Have you published anywhere other than ES.com?
No, ES.com is where I put all my stories. But I took some of my stories and put them together as a couple of books and self-published them on Lulu. I even sold a few copies but I'm not giving up my day job!
Q. What is it about writing erotica that you most enjoy?
It's an interesting challenge. I try and write stories that have a real plot and believable dialogue. I think it makes the sex more interesting. I'm probably proudest of the story "Matchbook" in this regard. A couple of people told me that they had the odd experience of being highly aroused and in tears at the same time as the plot unfolded.
Q. What is your favorite category to write in, and why?
My favorite is "male domination" I think. Partially because stories in that category always get the highest scores and I've been told I'm especially good at that kind of story. But I've written stories in lots of different categories, just depends on what plot ideas I come up with.
Q. How much of yourself do you include in your stories?
It varies. A lot of stories are complete inventions. Some stories are actually about a real person and me, although usually I change the names when I put them on ES.
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?
Two things that I've never done but I'd be interested to try are a threesome with two women, and having sex with a virgin. I had a girlfriend once who tried to set up a threesome with a friend of hers but for logistical reasons it never happened. And I've been one woman's second lover. That's as close as I've come.
Q. Does your partner or any of your friends know that you write? What do they think?
I don't currently have a partner. All my ex-girlfriends know that I write since I've written stories for them. One ex-girlfriend though writing stories was a bit weird, but the others loved having erotic stories written just for them.
Q. What, if any, difficulties do you face when writing - erotic writing difficulties and general writing difficulties? And how do you overcome them?
I don't have too many problems with general writing. I think erotic writing has an added challenge that you have to describe sex in ways that don't seem stale, but there are only so many words to describe things. Also, in lesbian scenes or scenes with more than just a man and a woman, it becomes hard to write in a way that is clear since pronouns can be so ambiguous. It is then hard to write both stylishly and clearly.
Q. How about in more general terms - how do you feel about the "outside world"'s perception of erotic writing?
I'm really only open about doing erotic writing with girlfriends, so I don't really run into the outside world's judgment. People I work with, for instance, have no idea.
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 enjoy writing stories for specific fans, sometimes based on their fantasies or sometimes just based on background information that they give me. Or sometimes just writing the type of story that they've told me they most enjoy. Erotic writing has an additional grade than just the quality of the writing, namely how much the readers get aroused. It is always great to get an email from someone saying how they had three orgasms as they read a story. I especially enjoyed the few emails I've had that say they've never emailed an author before but a story was so good they just want to let me know.
Q. How do you feel when you receive negative comments or very low votes from readers?
I don't get many negative comments, and sometimes they are incomprehensible (like I got one email saying that the sender didn't enjoy the story due to all the spelling errors - but there weren't any). Most of my stories get mostly 9s and 10s but there is always somebody who suddenly gives it a 4 or even a 2. I can't believe that anyone would bother to read an entire story if they found it that unappealing. It's especially annoying if this happens among the first few votes since stories with low scores get fewer readers and so it takes a long time to build the score back up again. I enjoy constructive criticism but I never bother to reply to people who are just insulting.
Q. What kind of stories would you never write?
I wouldn't write a story that didn't turn me on. So I don't write gay male stories, or stories with weird sexual habits that I don't personally enjoy.
Q. And do you read, and respond to, other writers on the site? Who are your favorites?
Sometimes I read stories, it sort of goes in phases. I sometimes email authors if I especially enjoy a story for some reason. I don't really have any special favorite authors. I typically look at the scores to decide which stories look worth reading.
Q. Do you remember the first pornography you ever saw?
Not really. I think it was when I was at university at a party hosted by the architecture department. They were showing porno movies in one of the rooms (this was pre-VCR days so it was a film projector).
Q. What's the kinkiest thing you have ever done?
Having sex in the woods on Maui and taking photographs of ourselves. Although we'd gone off the path to a little clearing, it turned out the path looped around and so we were just feet from it. Luckily nobody else seemed to be around that afternoon.
Q. Do you have any fantasies that you would like to fulfill?
I guess that goes back to having a threesome and deflowering a virgin.
Q. What is a major turn on for you during sex?
I'm very visual, both when having sex and in the way I write. Seeing a woman's pussy for the first time is always an especially major turn on, like she's giving you a little gift, which in a way she is. Giving oral sex is a big turn-on, I love to feel a woman's orgasm as my tongue and fingers work their magic. Women who are a lot younger than me are another major turn-on.
Q. How about a major turn off?
Condoms are a major turn-off I have to say. I've had a vasectomy so in real relationships that problem usually goes away.
Q. How do you feel about same sex relationships, both personally and as a writer?
I've never had a same-sex relationship, although I don't disapprove of them or anything (I live in the gay capital of the world, after all). I like writing lesbian stories but I don't write gay male stories. I have several lesbian friends (one of whom is my go-to girl for critiquing lesbian sex scenes for plausibility).
Q. Do you explore these feelings, positive and negative in your stories?
Sometimes in the lesbian stories, especially one that involve a lesbian seducing a straight woman for the first time.
Q. How long does it take for you to write a story? Could you talk us through the process?
I write quite fast but of course the length of time depends on the length and complexity of the story. Usually I start out by writing a version in which the sex scenes are not all that long, and then go back and add more detail. Funnily enough, writing the sex scenes is one of the parts I find can be a bit boring, so I do better if I don't try and write long scenes in a single sitting, but return and see where it seems too brief. If I am writing the story for someone specific I usually get her feedback too.
Q. What do you think is the best story you have published here?
There are several I'm especially proud of. "Asian Pears", "Matchbook," "Pole Dance," "French Kiss." Then there are the series set in a hotel in Montreal that I wrote for a woman who works in guest services in a hotel in Montreal (they all have titles with "Guest Services" in).
Q. Is there anything else you would like to say to the readers of this interview and your fans? Now is your chance...
I think all authors on the site wish that more people would take a moment to vote, and if they especially enjoyed the story then to send an email (or add a blog-style comment). For instance I have one story read 15,000 times but with just 28 votes. At least they were good votes but 98.8% of the people who read the story didn't bother to vote.
Also, as I said above, I enjoy writing stories for specific people so get in contact with me if you want me to write one for or about you.
Q. Finally, do you have a website or a blog, where your fans can visit and maybe learn more about you?
No. I put all the erotic stories up on ES only (although a few are available through Lulu as I already said).
