The monthly selection of Claire's stories
Some hot and some not
It’s time for Claire’s monthly selection only this time there aren’t as many stories as usual. The reason for this is that it’s been a weird month, the craziest election month ever with the Covid pandemic raging and then as if that wasn’t enough, Medium decided to change its algorithm and set up new rules that send my views and earnings into free fall. So it’s no wonder that this is one of the first pieces I wrote:
The Overwhelming Rage Women Carry Inside
We, women, are enraged and I, as a woman, am no exception. I wasn’t even aware of the degree of this rage, though, until I started to regularly publish on Medium.
But then, it wasn’t all about rage either. With people complaining about 2020 left and right, as if it were the worst year in human history (it wasn’t, the worst is yet to come), I realized it was still, despite everything that happened, the best year in the last decade for me. I’ve been through a lot but I also learned and grew a lot thanks to it. What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger is how it was for me. I guess it’s everybody else’s turn now.
For Me, 2020 Has Been the Best Year In the Last 7 Years
You know how everyone complains about 2020? I hear that and I laugh out loud. What happened is that, basically, most people now got a taste of how I’ve been living for the last 7+ years.
And then, at one point, I got sexually blocked and couldn’t make myself write erotica any longer. Of course I wanted to understand what was happening and why. I realized it has a lot to do with how things stand in our society and that’s how the next post came to be:
Why Women Get Sexually Blocked
It just happened to me — I currently cannot write erotica and it’s not just a simple case of writer’s block. I’ve never had writer’s block. It’s a sexual block coming from somewhere else, from the long history of all sorts of abuses I’ve experienced and that were directly related to my gender.
I don’t give up easily, so after a while, I tried again. This time, I wanted to write about what’s sacred in sexual union, about what it stands for from a more spiritual point of view.
The Creation Rite
It was her who created life and everybody knew it and worshiped her for that. Once a year, the High Priestess turned the barren land into fertile soil again. As she walked with the wind in her hair, stones beneath her feet dissolved and new life sprang to life.
Still dealing with my sexual block, I had a weird dream about my former boss and decided to write it down. This one is more of a curiosity than erotica, so don’t expect too much in terms of arousal.
Having Sex With My Boss In Dreams
I came to work and it was a mess. Our building was in the middle of renovations so workers were everywhere. I’m a counselor so people still came to see me. When I arrived, one of the members of our team, a blond nurse, asked me whether she could have a word with me.
Last but not least, there is one final piece of erotica for this month. In this one, I was dealing with jealousy and how it can break relationships. It can also lead to some pretty passionate sex Enjoy!
For Once, Nothing Held Us Back
We’ve been watching each other for way too long. Cautiously at first, being in a relationship with other people. Not all that happy relationships, but boundaries need to be respected. Even then, though, he’d compliment me whenever we happened to be alone for a brief moment or two.
That’s it from me for this month. Have a good one and remember, there’s always something to be thankful for. 🍌
