C.Allen; new, innovative & sexy.

There’s a talented new writer of erotica on the block! I am interviewing C.Allen, (Chris) asking him about his themes and his inspirations for his sexually infused stories. Chris has published “Gone” which has extended into a series of four books. In addition, “Gang Funding; financing a dream, “Pimpin Mom”, “Pro Sub, by appointment only” and “Cuckold Games.”

 (BR) When did you decide to become an erotic writer? Why?

(Chris) (I started GONE a couple of years ago, but I put it down for a long while before finishing it last spring.

(BR) How do you get inspiration for your books?

(Chris) My inspiration comes from sexual experiences I’ve had throughout my life. I’ve always been what you might call “oversexed” I think about it all the time. 

(BR) You have been published for a couple of years now, with several stories available. What was it that prompted you to begin writing?

(Chris) As I mentioned I’ve always been a very sexual being. I wanted a way to express my fantasies to others. At first I only let my wife and closest female friend read my stuff. They both enjoyed it and saw themselves and some play we’ve all had together, portrayed in my stories.

(BR) Is there any part of your books that is based on your personal experiences? For instance in GONE Serena is bored with the mundanity of her life. When she sees an advertisement offering a new, challenging sexy future she responds. She is also very manipulative. Is that you…or someone that you know?

(Chris) We have a close friend who is probably the only actual nymphomaniac I’ve ever met.  Serena’s sexual freedom and willingness to do anything is in part based on her.

(BR) Do your family read your books?

(Chris) My wife reads and proofs everything I write.

(BR) Which authors do you like to read?

(Chris) I love the 3 “Sleeping Beauty” books that Ann Rice wrote a while back under another name which I can’t remember now. I also love July Cumming and of course your work. Billierosie books were among the first I read when I got into this game.

(BR)What would you suggest to people who want to improve their sex lives?

(Chris) 1) Let go of your inhibitions. 2) Get with someone you really trust and set up situations that are exciting to you both, or however many people you’re playing with, and push your boundaries.  If you have a significant other, you have to be open and honest with each other, or you will end up lying to each other and ruin a good thing.

(BR)What was your favorite chapter (or part) to write and why?

(Chris) I love the character Serena in the GONE series. I admire her self-security and willingness to let go fully into a situation she has decided is safe and satisfying for her.  As she goes deeper into it, all her inhibitions and fear melt away until she is only her sexuality. That to me is the ultimate personal freedom.

(BR) For those who might consider reading your book, what would you tell them to expect?

(Chris)  Hard core sex, I don’t pull any punches when describing sex, instead I want the reader to be fully engrossed in the fantasy and freedom of the story. If you want your erotica tender and glossy, my stories are probably not for you. I want the reader to feel like it is her life she is reading about, so my work is explicit and dirty. If you don’t feel like you can be one of the women in my books, then at least you can have the fantasy. I think my books are like a porno but for the mind not the eyes. I write for women.

(BR) Do you have any advice for aspiring writers?

(Chris)  Write what turns you on.

(BR) We see you on Twitter a lot – some of your Tweets are explicit references to your stories…are you writing to arouse -- are you teasing future readers? Are you aiming to your turn your readers on?

(Chris) I’m aiming to get potential readers interested in the forbidden fantasies that await them in my books.

(BR) Do you get turned on by your stories?

(Chris) Oh yeah, sometimes when I can feel my body temperature rise as well as another part of me. Then I know it’s hot.

(BR) Do you think it is necessary for an Erotica writer to be turned on by the events in a story?

(Chris) Yes, if I’m not turned on writing a story how can I expect the reader to be turned on?

(BR) In Serena’s tale where are you in the stories? Your writing is often brutal; Serena is turned on by the pain and humiliation. Are you the man wielding the whip?

(Chris) Not necessarily I like to feel like I’m free and sexual enough to be in the place these woman are in. Totally free and safe to indulge in the most wild of scenarios. Often the fantasy of a particular sex act is a turn on, even if you wouldn’t put yourself in that position in real life. It’s all about freedom.

(BR) Where does lifestyle experience end and vicarious fantasy begin within your fiction?

(Chris) Over the years I’ve been in a lot of sexual situations that are the genesis of my stories.

(BR) On that note, is there a personal fetish or a fantasy that you have yet to explore in your fiction?

(Chris) I’ll get to all of them. I’ll keep you guessing as to what they are. I love the idea of the unapologetic woman who is completely lost in her sexuality.  We often read about men being that sexual and we generally accept that men are run by their sexual desires. I want to portray women who feel the same way. There are many out there, but society has taught that they can’t be free and sexually primal. I want to show them they are safe in my fantasies no matter how twisted they are.

(BR) With reader reviews so crucial to generating exposure, what are some of the weirdest or most wonderful reactions you’ve had from readers?

(Chris) When I published GONE I was afraid that people would think it was too explicit and demeaning to women. I am glad to see a different reaction. Women seem to love the explicit in your face sex that I write. It goes to show that you can lose yourself in the wicked twisted fantasy even if you wouldn’t live it out in real life. The reviews from women to all my books have been fantastic. They clearly get what I’m trying to do and that makes me very happy. I love and respect women more than anything and I want them to be sexually satisfied in life.

(BR) Finally, looking towards a brighter, more fantastic 2017, what can readers look forward to seeing from you next?

(Chris) More twisted perverted fun! Next up is the conclusion of my newest book “Pimpin’ Mom”

The Tango and Erotica

The Tango -- alluring, sexy, provocative. A dance of exotic erotica.  It’s a piece of performance art telling an ancient tale. A tale that began with Lilith, Adam’s first wife and her refusal to accept Adam’s dominance over her. Lilith just would not tolerate Adam laying on top of her when they had sex. It is a narrative that has been re -told, re-invented hundreds of times over the millennia. Through the medium of dance and spectacle the Tango tells the enduring tale of the dominant persistence of the male, and the equally powerful resistance of the female.

The Tango is a sensual dance which involves a negotiation of power. The male controls the female; she responds to his demand. Sometimes she responds with resistance and rebellion; she seizes the power for herself for a few brief seconds. It is a slow seduction. He caresses her gently, seductively; sometimes not so gently. His caresses can border on erotic violence.

It is not like the waltz, where the male gently manipulates his partner, telling her with his body where he wants her to go. The female in the Tango has a mind of her own. If he lowers his guard for a second she will devour him, annihilate  him with her energy. The observer becomes aware of an energetic field created by the dancers’ inner selves and emotional expression.

In the tango there are smooth horizontal movements that are strong and determined. It is danced in close full, upper body contact. The dancers are very low with long steps and no up and down movements. Forward steps land on the heel; in backward steps the dancer pushes forward from the heel.

There is room for improvisation; sometimes he may accentuate the long line of her body with a caress of his hand. Her fingers may glide over the breadth of his shoulder; they are intensely erotic moments. Their audience draw a hiss of a breath. How do they dare behave so flagrantly with the party looking on? And the Tango, of course can be danced, for brief moments alone; the two dancing for their own seductive pleasure. The dancers respond to Terpsichore the Muse of Dance and Music. Their response is physical, emotional and intellectual.

Tango is a fluid dialogue where the bodies talk and surprise each other step after step. He bends her body into impossible positions, shaping her, forming her, teaching her. She retaliates and swirls furiously away from him.

“Historically, the Tango is a dance that has influences from European and African culture. Dances from the candombe ceremonies of former slave peoples helped shape the modern day Tango. The dance originated in lower-class districts of Buenos Aires and Montevideo. The music derived from the fusion of various forms of music from Europe. The word "tango" seems to have first been used in connection with the dance in the 1890s. Initially it was just one of the many dances, but it soon became popular throughout society, as theatres and street barrel organs spread it from the suburbs to the working-class slums, which were packed with hundreds of thousands of European immigrants, primarily Italians, Spanish and French.

“In the early years of the 20th century, dancers and orchestras from Buenos Aires travelled to Europe, and the first European tango craze took place in Paris, soon followed by London, Berlin, and other capitals. Towards the end of 1913 it hit New York in the USA, and Finland. In the USA around 1911 the word "tango" was often applied to dances in a 2/4 or 4/4 rhythm such as the one-step. The term was fashionable and did not indicate that tango steps would be used in the dance, although they might be. Tango music was sometimes played, but at a rather fast tempo. Instructors of the period would sometimes refer to this as a "North American tango", versus the so-called "Argentine Tango". By 1914 more authentic tango stylings were soon developed, along with some variations like Albert Newman's "Minuet" tango.

“The Tango consists of a variety of styles that developed in different regions and areas of Argentina as well as in other locations around the world. The dance developed in response to many cultural elements, such as the crowding of the venue and even the fashions in clothing. The styles are mostly danced in either open embrace, where lead and follow have space between their bodies, or close embrace, where the lead and follow connect either chest-to-chest (Argentine tango) or in the upper thigh, hip area (American and International tango.)

“Bora Toska, a Tango dancer, interviewed Javier Rodriguez Javier Rodriguez an important figure in today’s tango world. Ever since his glorious partnership with Geraldine, he’s captured the minds and hearts of tango aficionados around the world, even achieving cult-like status in some places.”

“Above all,’ he said ‘ you have to have the embrace. And the embrace is one only. It can be more open or more closed, very tight or at one meter distance and you can still be embracing another person in the perfect connection. If you know how to embrace and take into you another person’s body, everything else can be fixed.”

Here are Patricio Toucuda and Carla Chimento dancing their version of the Argentine Tango.
