I’m meant to be writing more these days, but probably because of that, I’m not actually doing so. I mean, I’m in the middle of planning a wedding, but that’s no excuse. I am one of those disillusioned bloggers that GOTN mentions in this post, and I’ve certainly had a massive dip in my traffic…
…so I’m jacking her idea.
Rather than hottest blog posts, I’m going to go for my favourite ones. They’re not all filthy – although there’s quite a lot of sex on this here sex blog – they may just be funny, or touching, or I may just like them for no apparent reason. I’ve been sex blogging since 2007, so it’s impossible to just choose a couple; I’m going for 13. Because, as I said, GOTN’s idea. Blame her.
Some of these posts are hosted on my old blog, so you may need to click a couple of times to get through to them. It’s never been an issue for me, though.
Sweat Naked – Tuesday, 12 February 2013
This is the one that was featured in an issue of Glamour during their sex blog highlight feature. It’s one of my most read, as a result. I meant for it to be at least a little humorous, and I think I may have managed that.
An Empty Condom, An Empty Bed, And Subtext – Wednesday, 03 August 2016
This doesn’t count, as it was originally posted elsewhere as an article I submitted, and was quite well-received at the time, but since that website went down, I managed to scrape the article from my archives, re-wrote it to make it more of a readable thing, and posted it as… bonus content, I suppose? It’s one of my favourite posts, as it’s lengthy and detailed, but sad.
Historical Conversation ones
Klassic Kamp Konversations Kreating Komedy! – Friday, 08 August 2008
Something from my very early days of sex blogging and the first time I went to Woodcraft Camp since I started. It’s cheeky, short, and gleeful. I have a lot of blog posts about conversations with my friends; this may be one of the first.
Truth will open, truth will out – Wednesday, 12 May 2021
It took me long enough to write about the conversation at school that happened when everyone found out I’d lost my virginity! Eventually, however, I dredged this from my memory, and wrote it up. I love this one.
The Zebra Project – Thursday, 21 October 2010
One of the saddest posts I’ve ever written, about my first ever failed crush. I still think about her sometimes, and wonder what happened to her after she vanished halfway through sixth form.
Look and Read – Tuesday, 02 September 2014
A reflection on what the best kind of masturbation is (spoiler: masturbation is great; they’re good wanks, Brent), coupled with a true story of the same. I like the writing in this, and particularly the use of the phrase “a little ball of cute”, which I don’t recall writing, but I’m now pleased I did!
Watering Hole – Sunday, February 07, 2021
You really need to have the track playing to genuinely enjoy this one. It takes me back to those times in my youth where I had rainy nighttime coach journeys pretty much every week. I was terribly remiss in having Whiplash playing during my most recent coach trip… maybe next time.
Je t’adore – Friday, 29 August 2008
Was one of my favourite, and most explicit, posts when I’d first written it, although it is sex with someone about whom I still have very confused feelings. From my first year of blogging, it’s one of the first times I wrote so openly about sex, to general fanfare.
Beautiful Music – Wednesday, 16 August 2017
I’d almost forgotten this one, about my (imaginary) girlfriend and the (real) band we were in. It’s one of my favourites, as it gives you a bit of insight into the lonely male twenty-something’s mind and contains one of the best sex scenes that I’ve ever written.
Soaked – Monday, 06 September 2021
Also written in response to something GOTN wrote! It’s a fun, sexy story, sticks largely to the topic, and even contains a DKC3 reference, so what’s not to love?
Back in the game. – Tuesday, 19 October 2021
Although it may not surprise you to hear that I still haven’t had full-on penetrative sex since long before I write this, this was genuinely one of the best times I’ve had for a very long period. I love oral sex. And I loved writing about it, so much so that I had to take a break to relieve myself halfway through writing it!

You’re not you when you’re horny… – Wednesday, 27 September 2017
A memory from my past, and a really funny one with a healthy streak of frustration running through it, this is my favourite post to read aloud, especially if you’re adept at doing three different voices. It may, at some point, lend itself to stand-up, if I ever get to read somewhere again!
Go play some video games… – Monday, August 31 2020
I do a lot of dream posts, because I have a lot of very interesting dreams. This one doesn’t really capture the “novelise the entire thing as a fantasy epic” project I did in my late teens vibe, but I felt it worthy of writing up anyway. I haven’t yet managed to have such a tantalising dream since. Maybe it will happen at some point.
Boom, clap, I’m in me friend’s car – Wednesday, July 08 2020
More people need to read this one. It’s the one I link to the most (you can tell by the number of pingbacks), and the one that’s an immediate go-to if I get asked for an example of a blog post I like. It’s funny, sexy, silly and takes me back to happy times. The recent heat makes it even more prescient, in a way.
