Vic Porn Fridays will return!

But probably not for another week. I’m in the midst of some exhausting stuff right now and just haven’t been able to summon up the energy for anything non-crucial. I promise there will be more Victorian porn in the near future. :)

Victorian Porn Friday #15

The excerpt today is from Laura Middleton: Her Brother and Her Lover, 1890.

I like this excerpt primarily because the author does an impressive job of really beating a military/battle analogy to death.

Needless to say, Victorian Porn Fridays are NSFW. (Sometimes Victorian porn is also NSFL, just sayin’. Victorians didn’t seem to have much of a problem with incest and ephebophilia and other things like that.) Victorian Porn Fridays are only for those over the age of 18, as the content is explicit. Clicking to read more constitutes agreement that you are over the age of 18 and sexually explicit material is legal in your area.

Victorian Porn Friday #14

The excerpt today is from Forbidden fruit luscious and exciting story and More forbidden fruit or Master Percy’s progress in and beyond the domestic circle, from 1898.

A number of people have commented on how Victorian porn is surprisingly normal. The truth is that people are people, whether in the 1800′s or the 2000′s, and fucking is fucking. But there were certain subjects which were much more commonly found in Victorian porn than are considered acceptable today (save for a small niche that’s into that particular kink). One of these subjects is incest, and the selection today should be enough to fill your Incest-O-Meter for the next week or so. (And it isn’t by any means the most incestuous scene I’ve come across in Victorian porn. This excerpt is fairly “normal” Victorian incest, relatively speaking.) Enjoy, and if this sets you to Frigging, try not to injure your Prick or Fanny!

Welcome to all the new people!

We’ve been having quite the influx of visitors, for which I can thank cracked.com. Since I love that site myself, I’m flattered to have shown up in one of their articles!

I’d stopped posting new Victorian Porn Fridays since I wasn’t getting much response. But now I’ve been receiving emails and comments asking for new ones, so I promise I’ll find some time within the next few weeks to post another. I wouldn’t want to deprive anyone of all that quim-wetting goodness (or, if you are of the penis-endowed variety, that John Thomas-thickening goodness). In the meantime, please enjoy the archives; they’re all tagged appropriately.

Ah, good old Victorian porn. Everybody loves a pervert, and they did do perversion so very elegantly!

An awesome review for my anthology!

Freaky Fountain Press is going great. Our first two anthologies, Bad Romance and This Is The Way The World Ends, were released in March. Bad Romance is my anthology (meaning I chose all the stories that are included in the anthology, edited the stories, and wrote the foreword), and we just got a lovely review from a reigning legend of literary erotica, Remittance Girl. Some excerpts (full review is here):

Some romances break your heart and some dismember and disembowel you, this anthology deals with the latter, both metaphorically and literally. From Jeanette Grey’s looping car crash in ‘Bleeding Red‘ to the blithe decapitation of Chris Guthrie’s ‘Three Days In Summer‘, the collection is a literate homage to all the ways in which we delight in our own destruction and that of those we love.

I once tried to describe the difference between porn and erotica by explaining that porn carves away all extraneous matter and leaves the sex whereas erotica should reflect an entire life, seen through an erotic lens. ‘Bad Romance’ does exactly that, no matter how explicit or raw or violent. It tells the story of the how and the why, not just the what.

I think the biggest compliment I can offer this collection is: I seldom care if or where I’m published. This is the only anthology I’ve ever read in which I would have given several digits of my right hand to be included.

I do hope Freaky Fountain Press survive and thrive. Because I honestly believe that the future of erotica as a legitimate genre is in the hands of editors and publishers of their ilk.

Go check out the Freaky Fountain Store and take a look at our anthologies!

My interview with Sexlife Canada

Sexlife Canada is a guide to sex-positive culture in Canada and on the web, and they decided to interview us! Come read the interview where I and my Freaky Fountain co-founder Catherine discuss the most bizarre submission we’ve ever received, intestines, why we include trigger warnings in our releases, whether reading dark erotica can lead to acting on those fantasies in real life, and a lot more.

A Fantastic Nightmare interview series

A Fantastic Nightmare did a series of interviews with me and my Freaky Fountain co-founder Catherine.


Part 1: Leary and Wolfe talk about the conception of FFP, Chigurh, hybristophilia, and reeducating Team Edward to embrace a darker, sexier side of Stockholm Syndrome!


Part 2: Leary and Wolfe talk Faulkner, fetishes, and how horrific erotica can empower women readers.


Part 3: The finale of our interview lets you fellow writers know what FFP is looking for!

New story posted!

I’ve posted a new free story, called Queen of Blades. It’s a fanfic devoted to a character I’ve been hopelessly in love with for over a decade and it’s set in the Starcraft universe, but I had a few beta-readers who know nothing about Starcraft read it, and they assure me that it still makes sense and is a good story, so I hope everyone will enjoy it.

Introducing… Freaky Fountain Press!

So, that exciting news I mentioned… some of you may have seen it already on my Facebook page, but here it is for those that don’t follow me there!

Introducing… Freaky Fountain Press!

After much discussion, another writer and I have launched our own publishing company. It’s called Freaky Fountain Press. All the footwork has been completed: we’re registered with the Canadian government as a publishing company, our website’s up and running, we’ve got a logo we love (hi, Jenny!), and the Calls for Submissions for our first two anthologies have been posted to various places on the interwebs.

Come take a look! (And feel free to friend us on Facebook and Twitter – links available from the website!)

From our “About Freaky Fountain Press” page:
Freaky Fountain Press is the brainchild of two lifelong writers and connoisseurs of the freaky: Catherine Leary and Robin Wolfe.

For years, we’ve bemoaned the lack of published literary erotica covering dark themes and unusual kinks and practices. Nearly all mainstream publishers have blanket guidelines prohibiting elements such as necrophilia, non-consent, violence, gore, and cannibalism—all stuff we love! And while these guidelines undoubtedly serve a valuable function, implementing them straight across the board leaves a lot of niche readers out in the cold. Self-published authors are sometimes willing to tackle the darker side of Eros, but we’ve found the quality of those publications was often sorely lacking. So where does a reader go to find edgy, psychologically dark, and high-quality literary erotica?

One day we decided to stop complaining and do something about it. On that day, Freaky Fountain Press was born.

Freaky Fountain Press is not for everyone. Many readers will find some of our content disturbing, and guess what? We’re perfectly okay with that. Our novels and anthologies aren’t for them. They’re for you: authors and readers who like nothing more than to roll up their pants, jump in, and dance in the freaky fountain. So bring us your cannibal love, your natural born killers, your hot zombie sex and your death fetishists. Bring us your dark gods and weird kinks and bizarre fetishes. Write your stories to the edge and back. You’re always welcome here.

Come on in – the water’s freaky!
