The Creamiest Chocolate Body Paint for Valentine's Day

My February column is up at the Erotic Readers and Writers Association--The Smut-Writer’s Holiday: In Praise of Sexier Valentines, Custom-made Customs, and the Creamiest Chocolate Body Paint in the World. As you might guess, this month I discuss Valentine’s Day customs here and in Japan, plus I share my fabulous chocolate sauce recipe that is thick and smooth and perfect for painting on body parts when lukewarm or pouring on ice cream or cake when it’s hot and slippery. I also review the wonderful anthology Best Lesbian Erotica 2008, which has some seductively strong stories by strong, sexy women writers and not a single mango-sucking scene! I like mangos a lot, especially with sticky Thai rice and coconut milk, but read my review and you’ll know what I’m talking about. Happy February, everyone!

I loved your thoughts on non-traditional holidays. My family has been one to buck convention on holidays for years. We only have Turkey for Thanksgiving once every three or four years, as an example.

The Japanese traditions surrounding Valentine's day sound fascinating. What a strange twist upon the holiday. Japanese culture is so unique. I've never had the opportunity to be immersed in Japanese culture, though I am interested in it and I appreciate your sharing your experiences and observations!

Thank YOU for reading my column! I enjoy bucking convention, although I like some holiday tradition if the customs are custom-made, things we want to do rather than feel obligated to do. Thanksgiving for us (unless we're invited elsewhere) is chestnut-butternut squash risotto, a cranberry relish with walnuts and Grand Marnier and a good wine--of course....
