For the third year in a row, I’m heading across an entire ocean to join my sex blogging peeps for Eroticon — one of the few spaces I can be completely myself for an entire weekend.
While I try not to think about an airplane crossing over such a large body of water or my irrational fears* about traveling to places I don’t know well, let’s focus on the first real Eroticon activity of the year — the meet and greet. This is a chance for us to introduce ourselves and “meet” people before we have to do the nerve-wracking thing of actually talking to each other.
Yes, I’ll be nervous, too. It happens every time I get around big crowds of people, even big crowds of people I genuinely adore.
Name and Twitter:
Kayla Lords, @KaylaLords, call me Kayla.
Only John Brownstone gets to call me “babygirl.” I’ll likely give a rude snort, an anything-but-submissive look, or a “fuck you” to anyone else who tries to do it. Or I won’t know you’re speaking to me and will ignore you.
3 things I’m looking forward to about Eroticon 2019:
Seeing all my sex blogging friends. Without this event, everyone just lives in my internet connection.
The sessions/panels I’m a part of — I’m still nervous, but not as nervous as last year. I’m mostly excited to share the things I’ve been thinking about with anyone who cares to listen.
Getting away from it all for a week and spending time with John Brownstone in freaking LONDON!
Nominate a song for the Friday Night Meet and Greet
I’m going to be selfish and nominate two because I can’t choose — and whoever is making these decisions can pick their favorite among both.
Killer Queen by Queen
Fat-Bottomed Girls by Queen
Why? Because I fucking love them both.
What is your favorite book or item you’ve purchased so far this year?
It’s not a physical item but a service that I’ve purchased — the services of a tax accountant who’s kink friendly and cool as shit. Nothing has made me feel quite as kinky or as professional as talking about my “future accounting needs” with the same person I can talk to about the paddles John Brownstone made last year.
You can have an unlimited supply of one thing for the rest of your life, what is it?
Caffeine. If you thought I was going to say “coffee,” you’re half right. I drink other caffeinated beverages, and it’s the one “vice” I have zero desire to give up*. Diet Coke is my second favorite, followed by iced tea, then hot tea (with cream — how many of my UK friends just died a little on the inside?).
*I’ve given up nearly all carbs in the name of my health. Caffeine is the one thing that will have to be pried from my cold, dead hands.
What is your favorite quote from a movie?
“You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.” ~Princess Bride
What is your one-word suggestion for next year’s Eroticon anthology?
Complete the sentence: I feel…
like I will never be finished; not with my current to-do list, my short-term goals, or dreaming of a future I couldn’t have conceived of a few years ago.
