Special Edition: Hurricane Relief

Coming Together: Special Hurricane Relief Edition (Phaze) Coming Together: Special Hurricane Relief Edition (Cafe Press)

Death and sex. Disaster and sex. It seems that personal tragedy requires affirmation of life. What bigger affirmation do we poor people know that has the same intimacy, the same energy, the same shout-it-from-the-rooftops-we-are-here, as the act of physical love, when faced with the apparently random acts and displays of unparalleled puissance and anonymous destruction?

We pour our love, our hot volatile need, our gentle but urgent persuasions towards, around and into our partner of the moment, wishing, hoping and anticipating our reward. That small, endless, titanic, momentary reward which leaves us less and increases us greatly. Knowing our variously voracious or inconsequently insipid appetites can never be filled we nevertheless contrive to partake of it again.

In that act, that race towards orgasm, that outpouring of lust we defy nature, scream at the stars, challenge the cosmos to do its damnedest.

And so, be it by acts of sexual abandon, gentle love or basic urges we declaim to an uncaring universe: We are alive. We thrive. We will continue.

Introduction: Special Hurricane Relief Edition

Foreword:

The language used to describe orgasms is often powerful, wild, and evocative. It pulls on the imagery of storms. Words like "deluge" and "flood" are used to describe the physical release of the sexual act. Stormy eyes lead to wet panties and then to thunderous orgasms.
Sex and storms are closely connected in the minds of many.

However, the reality is that some storms are not sexy. Some storms destroy livelihoods, lands, and lives. Some storms happen on such a massive, unexpected scale that they cause total chaos.
Hurricane Katrina was one of the extreme examples of this kind of natural disaster. This powerful storm smashed into a 90,000 kilometer area off the Gulf coast of America in the fall of 2004. It all but destroyed several towns and villages as well as the well known jazz capitol, New Orleans. The damage was catastrophic, and it will take years to rebuild all that has been damaged.

Hundreds of thousands of Americans became refugees, seeking the very basics of sustenance: food, water, clothing, and shelter. They battled just to live—just to survive—and all they really wanted was to go home. Unfortunately, for many it was an impossible dream.

When the denizens of the Author's Hangout at Literotica.com® heard about this, they naturally wondered, as we all did, how they could help. They pooled their expertise, their skills, talents and inspiration, and created this special edition of Coming Together. All the proceeds from the sale of this volume will go to the American Red Cross to help provide aid to those who most desperately need it.

So you can do something to help. You have already done something to help just by purchasing this collection of rainy day erotic stories and storm-inspired poetry. We all can do something. We all have talents that we can use to help, and we can make a difference simply by doing what we can: by not thinking individually, but collectively—by coming together.

Introduction: Volume 2

There is a whole other world out there. Nestled in among the spam, the fluff and the marketing tricks, hidden behind all those wasted bits and bytes, ordinary humanity has invaded the internet. It is no longer available only to computer geniuses; it is the domain of ordinary people. We can meet, make friends, fall in love, fall out of love. We can talk, we can learn, we can listen to points of view we'd never dreamed of.

We can also find themselves thinking things we'd never dreamed of. Being a person that we'd never dreamed of.

The internet gives us a chance that was not available to previous generations. We can be anyone on the internet. We can reveal everything or nothing; we can create an entirely separate persona. In our real lives, we live out our days, working hour after hour, doing something utterly mundane and normal. Yet online, we can be someone different, someone dangerous, someone new. Someone sexy. We can come as we aren't.

When the authors from these books slip on the comforting vestments of their noms de plume, they become someone else. They become the people who their friends and families would be surprised to meet. They are free. Free from society's mores and manners, free to say anything, to do anything, to tell anything.

That freedom is why this book exists. Most of these authors are completely normal people. You would pass them on the street and (apart from a brief ogle) you wouldn't give them a second glance. Yet inside, they are wild and dangerous. Sexual, sensual beings, who aren't afraid to vocalise their fantasies and who have the skill and ability to transmute those feelings into delicious words.

We come from every corner of the globe, from every walk of life, from every race, country, creed and colour. We have different politics, different religions, different opinions and different sexualities. Yet we come together on one thing: We are free.

This book is a presentation of that freedom. It is here because we want to share what we have. The feelings that each story evokes are our gift to you and we sincerely hope that you enjoy them.

If you do, remember this. These stories are only there because we feel free to express our inner sexuality. And I believe that we make the world and ourselves just that little bit better by doing it.

And all because of a few bits and bytes.
