SonicErotica Launch

SonicErotica

SonicErotica is a free erotic web site that aims to produce content designed for and accessible to vision impaired people. It is easy to navigate with a screen reader such as JAWS, and is full of stimulating stories, adventures, and personal confessions to make your ears blush.  I have spent this year working hard to produce new content for the site and this week was SonicErotica’s official relaunch, and the beginning of regular updates.  As the Sonic Erotica Online Content Producer I source fiction, voice artists and sound effects; I direct the talent, edit and mix the final product and write the site news.  This relaunch of SonicErotica is my baby.  So although it’s early days, it is really fulfilling to be able to finally release what I’ve been focussing on this year and hopefully it will gain some attention and feedback from both the sighted and non-sighted communities.  I’ve tried to stay true to the vision of erotica for the visually-impaired because I believe it is an important aspect of accessibility.  The site will feature personal sexcapade stories, the aural voyeurism of listening in on intimate moments as well as fiction, richly enhanced with immersive and real sound effects.  And it’s free, so have a listen and think about how erotic just listening can be.

I was recently gifted with this lovely camera after I became interested in lomography. I think it will be a nice contrast from the shooting style I have whilst learning to use my DSLR. Instead of aiming for technical precision, shooting with a lomo camera is about quick photography, not thinking and not worrying about results. I shot a few reels whilst I was away and am waiting to discover how they turned out. Fingers crossed!

People I’ve Slept With Gets Around

So I’ve returned from USA, and have managed to deposit People I’ve Slept With # 2 with various zine stores and distros along the way.  Most excitingly look! PISW has its own page at Stanger Danger distro. People I’ve Slept With and Still Warm (my other zine project) are also now available at: Quimbys, Chicago, IL. Needles and Pens, San Francisco, CA. Pilot Books and Elliott Bay Book Company, Seattle, WA.  Pic: Both zines on the shelf at Quimbys!
