AUTHOR INTERVIEW: ELIZABETH BLACK



Elizabeth Black: Sex Goddess

Author Interview by A.J. Llewellyn


1. Good morning Elizabeth…or is it Trish….or the Countess? Sweetheart, you must keep your hubby very happy with all those personalities hopping in and out of bed. Which of you three is the best lay, BTW?

First, I have to make a confession. My husband and I are very much in love, and we are always holding and caressing each other, but he is impotent. I've already okayed it with him to talk about this, so I'm not revealing too much. It started a few years ago. We've learned to become very creative when it comes to love-making. We are big fans of sensation play – flavored lubes, massages, foot rubbing, back scratching, you name it. We even looked into polyamory, although he couldn't stomach the idea of me being with another man. Sadly for me, I don't have intercourse, and I miss it because he has a huge dick. Dang! So close yet so far! I do like my sex toys, though, and we always have our hands on each other.

All three of my personas are sexy in their own way. I think that The Countess is the one who is the enigma. No one knows exactly where she is coming from. Trish Wilson is The Professor. She's a font of knowledge and very left wing. If you think smart is sexy, you'd like her. Elizabeth Black is the hedonist who writes about her sex life, whether discussing how she loves to use sex toys or how she disguises her sex life in her fiction.

I started out about ten years ago writing about family law, feminism, and social issues with my real name – Trish Wilson. I had quite a reputation as someone who knew what she talked about, and I was very good at arguing my point. I argued my points so well that my opponents were reduced to blathering insulting invectives, which to me meant I won the debate. Ha! My articles affected state law and media opinions. I attracted the wrath of the fathers' rights movement, which is an activist movement favoring child abusers, control freaks, wife beaters, and other ne'er do wells who are angry that their wives and girlfriends left them, and now the guys have to pay child support – and they don't like parting with their money. I received hate mail and death threats. That's how good I was at that work. It's quite a mark of success if you inspire people to hate you because you called them to the carpet on their bullshit. I got off on the power rush. I was a force to be reckoned with, and I enjoyed the notoriety. So, when I left that work behind me to write erotic fiction and sex columns, I decided to come up with a pseudonym because my real name was so closely associated with that other kind of work. So I chose Elizabeth Black. Elizabeth is my favorite woman's name.
I chose Black because with a name beginning with the letter "B", my books would appear at eye level on bookshelves. Lizzie is definitely a hedonist. I love orgasms, hot steaming sex, massages, foot rubs, back scratchings, chocolate, gourmet cooking, and horror movies. I'm either horny, hungry, or excited/thrilled. Or a combination of all three. A life of extremes.

Ha ha, with these three names I feel like Sybil Dorset. J

2. Wow, Lizzie, thank you for your candor. A wonderfully honest answer. You know I'm going to have to ask you who is the sexiest and who is the most attractive of you three?

All three of us are sexy and attractive in our own way. Lizzie is the free spirit, though so I think she's the one who best expresses herself sexually. I'm a hedonist, so I enjoy lush things like good food, good wine, music (mostly techno and trance, but I do like dark ambient/industrial), and fancy bath lotions. I love the feel of lotion on my skin, and I never leave the shower without slathering on some scented thing or another. Tactile sensation is very important to me. As far as sex goes, I can never get enough of it. I do love my sex toy collection, which I wouldn't have if I didn't review sex toys. My husband gets a major kick out of my sex toys, and he helps me use them. He insists I'm a nymphomaniac, but I think I have a normal sex drive. I'm over 40, but that doesn't mean I should be put out to pasture for being "too old" for sex. Ha! That's a laugh.

3. When we started the conversation just now - I hope you don’t mind my telling tales out of school - you asked me if I ever bought the penis cup cake pan you told me about. I told you I had and I love it. You said, and I quote, Missy, “I had two chocolate dicks for breakfast with my coffee, and they were DEE LISH!!” That’s not a line you hear every day!! What’s the tastiest dick you ever had?

Believe it or not, I don't like eating dick. Never cared for the taste of it. That's one reason I like flavored lubes – makes the act more palatable.

AJ can't speak he is so shocked. How can you not like dick?

Just the kind of thing a dude would say. LOL! I don't like dick, but I did like knowing I had the kind of power over a man that a mere lick of the tongue could make him my slave. There's something heady about that kind of sexual power.

Although I wasn't thrilled about giving head, the guys liked it when I went down on them, so I just sucked it up (pardon the pun). I got to be quite good at it. Some techniques I discovered on my own have been mentioned in the Kama Sutra. J The tastiest? There was one guy I jumped on when I was in college because he had a dick that made Ron Jeremy look like a Vienna sausage. That guy almost cleaved me in two! Then again there is my favorite experience of going down on my husband after chewing on 15 Altoids peppermint mints when I should have used only 3. His dick burned so much he said it was on fire! He spent about five minutes in the bathroom running cold water and soap over his dick. Ha! I wrote about that experience for Nuts4chic. He knew about the article before I wrote it, and he was okay with me writing about it. That's my most popular Nuts4chic article.

Here's another fun story for you. When we still lived in Maryland about a decade ago, I broke my husband's dick. Twice. I went down on him and fucked him too hard, and he ended up injured. It wasn't permanent, but it was a bit painful. He told a guy at work, who didn't believe him. That guy said "You can't break your dick", and Husband said, "yes you can, and she did. Twice." That work colleague always gave me the hungriest and horniest looks whenever I managed to meet up with him. I bet he wanted some action! I love having that kind of sexual power over men. I make them eat out of my hand.

By the way, that penis cupcake pan? It's wonderful, isn't it? I baked with it four times already. I also have X-rated candy molds, including penis and pussy lollipops and a wonderful mold of Kama Sutra friezes. I found silver and gold candy paint that I will use when I use that candy mold for the first time. Haven't used it yet. Imagine – luscious dark chocolate covered with gold and silver. Gorgeous and yummy!! I like the good life. Heh heh. Those little dicksicles make the greatest gifts.

4. I'm all about the penis cupcake pan, Lizzie. Hey, I read your blog on Sarah Palin being offered a porn movie – I thought it was pretty funny myself tho I wouldn’t watch the movie only because I don’t like watching her with her clothes on…can’t imagine I’d like her with ‘em off…but I digress. I understood your feelings that it was a sexist offering but male politicians and public figures get these offers all the time. I was surprised however that for somebody who tests drive kinky toys every day that you say you don’t like or watch porn. Is this true?

It's true. I don't care for most porn because most of it bores me. The men and women just aren't that attractive, and they look bored, too. Plus they so often ignore each other. They aren't engaged as they fuck. I like the hot, steaming initial attraction like you see in To Have And Have Not between Bogie and Bacall. I also like dangerous attraction like you see in Basic Instinct. I think Basic Instinct is a very sexy movie. But porn just doesn't do it for me. I even tried porn made for women and it didn't do anything for me.

AJ says: You haven't tried gay porn then. You and Tess MacKall and I are gonna have a hot porn night soon. You WILL change your mind.

You're right – I haven't tried gay porn. I think I'd like lesbian porn a lot. I'm sure I'll change my mind about porn. I think I just haven't found the rights movies. I'm much more in my head than in my eyes when it comes to sex. I’m much more turned on by the written word than I am by watching sex in movies. However, there are some scenes in hot movies that I find sexy, such as the first "feel her up" scene in Bound and the three-way make-out in Wild Things. And there is the cunnilingus scene in Tie Me Up! Tie Me Down! Hmmm… all three of those movies featured gorgeous naked women, and that was what I was attracted to. I am bisexual, so that could explain some of it. Maybe that's why most porn bores me – I'm more attracted to female bodies than male bodies, and most porn is made with straight men in mind. I wouldn't mind seeing some Tera Patrick porn. She's gorgeous.

AJ says: I've seen her movies. She's pretty but she does not appear to enjoy herself even when she's in scenes with her husband. You need to find yourself a good dose of Damien Crosse and Francesco D'Macho together…or Francois Sagat in Bedroom Eyes. You'll go nuts!

Oh, that's too bad. She is a very savvy businesswoman, though, and that really turns me on. Plus she's gorgeous. I like Asian men and women, and I know she's Thai. Bedroom Eyes sounds familiar. I'll definitely take you up on your suggestions.

Did you see the clips from "Who's Nailin' Paylin"? They're pretty grody. LOL!
AJ says: Let me put it this way, I thought Madonna was just about the worst actress ever, until I saw those clips.

Ha! That was acting? I've seen a bratwurst and two cantaloupes do better acting. ;)

5. I love you, woman!!!! You are remarkably candid in your online blog as The Countess. One of my fave posts was about the pocket rocket that has five jelly
fingers:
“The fingers give a little more sensation than most Pocket Rockets because they extend the pleasant vibrations to the area around my clit. I enjoyed rubbing it around my vaginal lips as well as my clit, and the fingers allow me to do that. So, the Pocket Fingers Pocket Rocket actually gives more erotic sensation than the average Pocket Rocket.

“I prefer using this specific sex toy at night right before I go to sleep, and my husband likes to use it on me. If I wake up in the middle of the night horny, but I don't want to disturb my husband, out comes the Pocket Fingers!. It's so quiet that it doesn't wake him up. Then again, fire engine sirens can't wake him up. I can hear our upstairs neighbor snoring, so I'm grateful that it is so quiet, since we have paper-thin walls.”

Girlfriend, your husband must never get bored!! This is a lot of personal info tho. I mean fancy posting that he sleeps through fire engine sirens! Seriously, does he ever ask you not to be so…honest? Do his friends work know he’s married to the Goddess of sex Goodies?

Oh, my husband gets an immense kick out of my sex writing. We're always playing with each other. We tend to be loners, and our closest friends live outside Massachusetts (where we live), but everyone knows I am a sex writer and erotica fiction writer. Even the local bus driver knows I'm a sex writer, and she just loves it. I can't tell my mother, though. She's a conservative, born-again Christian. She'd have a cow if she knew what I wrote. She knows I make my living writing, but she had absolutely no idea what I write. She also has never been on the Internet, so she has no clue how to find me online.
I've always been very frank and blunt with my writing. Some things are very personal, and I don't talk about them at all (or much). I think this is the first time I've talked about my husband's impotence. Everything else, though, is fair game. I plan to write a novel loosely based on my sexual exploits in college. It will be a sort of memoir, but a work of fiction. I'll base quite a bit of that book on my personal life, but I'll disguise quite a bit to protect the guilty, so to speak. When I was in college, two professors who had affairs with me (they were married) lost their jobs because of their relationships with me. One was a full professor who was the chairman of his department. I could topple men like that when I was only 20! The tentative title of my book is The Seduction of Catherine Stone. There will be four books – one for each year in college. And they will be HOT!
6. When do you have time to write your books in between the blogs and the toy testing? What is your writing schedule like?

I pace myself, and I am one hell of a multi-tasker. I tend to do my best writing in the morning. I fade quickly after 2 pm. Right now, I have no fiction to work on, so working on the sex toys writing is perfect. I love my job. I work for a sex toys company in the U. K. called Bondara. They're moving to a new site, and that's in the works now. Here's the link to Bondara for anyone interested in picking up some high-quality sex toys:

I also write sex toys reviews for VibeReview. Here's a link for them:

7. You seem to have a pretty diverse range in genres. What is your fave? Anything new you want to try – anything you won’t?

My actual favorite is one that doesn't sell well – horror. I have two erotic horror stories under my belt, and I'm especially proud of them. One is Sweet Spot and the other is The Red Light Horror. Sweet Spot appears in Whiskey Creek Press Torrid's Monster Mash Halloween anthology, and The Red Light Horror was published by Scarlet Magazine in the UK. They like me in the UK. Here is a link to buy Monster Mash, for any readers who are interested:

BLURB:

The Sweet Spot is erotic horror. That is my second erotic horror story ever published!! I based it on an Irish ghost legend. Derek was warned to leave the cemetery after the funeral. The Hag haunted the graves, preying on grieving men and women. But all Derek could think of was revenge ... he should have left with the mourners.

I would love to tackle a hard science fiction story. I have one in mind, but I haven't been able to get it down on paper. I want to write a thriller based on viruses like ebola and lassa. Sort of like Outbreak, but more personal. There might be a romantic relationship, but probably no sex, and LOTS of biology.

I'd also like to try my hand at a work of fiction that resembles a memoir, as I had already mentioned. The Seduction of Catherine Stone is in my head right now, and I probably won't start working on it until January 2009. I need to get an outline written covering all four year (four books), but work on one book at a time, so that is going to take a bit of work. It will be hot, steaming sex and my usual blunt and frank sex talk that you have already noticed. It could also be a bit biting, since I do have a wicked sense of humor and I use sarcasm a lot. That book series will be a scorcher!

What I wouldn't try? Not much. I probably wouldn't write anything uses fecal body matter since I think that sort of thing is gross, but I do know it excites some people. Why, I have no idea. I've written stories using figging, spanking, sex role playing, phone sex, extramarital affairs, and so on infinity so there really isn't much I wouldn't write that would be considered out of limits. If I do write stories with incest, rape, necrophilia, or bestiality in them, I would likely use another pseudonym. I have one in mind, but if I tell you what it is, I'll have to kill you. LOL! Incest and rape were big issues for me when I worked in family law, feminism, and social issues, so I have no idea how I would handle rape fantasies and incest fantasies. I know the four are completely different, but they'd be hard for me to deal with.

8. Please tell me about your upcoming releases.

I expect my new paranormal erotic romance The Haunting Of The Sandpiper Inn to be released by Whiskey Creek Press Torrid in mid-2009. While I've published short stories and one anthology of short stories, this is my first full-length novel.

I've relied on my love of a good ghost story and my penchant for bringing unusual characters together when penning this fun little tale. My main character, Martha Ellis McKay, is a psychic who is writing a book called Haunted Cape Ann, so that she can pay her electric bill, rent, and World of Warcraft habit. However, deep down she is a skeptic who doesn't take kindly to the fake mediums out there. Ellis is a grouch who has most of my good - and bad - qualities. I like this character very much. She meets her match in John "Beck" Becker, the resident skeptic of a ghost hunting team who is also on hand to
investigate the Sandpiper Inn.

My husband teases me about my Saturday Morning Cartoons – the ghost shows and horror movies I tape on Friday night and watch Saturday morning. I'm a fan of Most Haunted (mostly to laugh at it) and Ghost Hunters, and many ideas in my novel I got from these kinds of shows. I also went ghost hunting on my own a few times, so I used my own experiences to influence the book.

Coming soon from Forbidden Publications: The Storm. A sweet short story. This one has no sex in it – not common coming from me! Here's a blurb: After getting caught yet again with another man's wife, Robbie walked to Salt Island from the shore to nurse his wounded ego and his wounded face. He falls into a drunken sleep and awakens to find himself trapped on the island since tide came in - and a nor'easter is coming. He has to get off of this island before the storm hits. To make matters worse, the ocean is glowing an iridescent maroon. That could only mean one thing - an appearance of notorious pirate, Captain Samuel Black, and his ship, the Prospero. Robbie calls his best friend, Ian, and his former girlfriend, Kate, to get him off this island. Kate is now Ian's wife, but Robbie still carries a torch for her. Will Ian and Kate get Robbie off that island before the storm and the pirate find him first?

Also coming sometime in 2009, a so-far untitled 40+ part serial for the new Excitica web site. My story is an erotic tale about a comely therapist and her delicious client. I'm into ménages and f/f in this one. I also delve into sexsomnia (sleep sex) and possibly erotic hypnosis. It's a very sexy serial that I expect to come out around summertime.

I also plan to write Summer Heat II, most likely with eXcessica publishing. It will be a collection of hot stories with a summertime theme, just like Summer Heat I.

Nuts4chic is on hiatus at the moment because the site is upgrading, but I expect my sex column to start afresh in early 2009. I have lots of great topics to discuss, from strange sex toys to the sex lives of kinksters who play games like Second Life.

9. Of all your books I am intrigued by A Spanking Good Time. Was it? I mean…writing it? Are you into spanking??

I'm not personally into spanking.

AJ says: What a shame. I brought my rubber spatula! Sorry, do go on!

… I know plenty of people are, so I decided to tackle it. I do like fantasy roleplaying, though, so the Naughty Nurse Nancy bit was something I'd love to try. When it comes to spanking, I think I'd like to inflict the pain rather than receive it. I suspect if I were to engage in BDSM, that I'd be a dom. So if you want to play, better hand over that rubber spatula and let me spank YOU. ;)

10. Er...I'm a spanker, missy. Not a spankee. Well, not that I've tried it. Um...I think I'm blushing! Have you ever produced a sex toy your hubby would not try?

Yes! He told me that NOTHING goes up his ass. I wanted to get an Aneros Progasm prostate massager, and he said that if I came within 500 feet of him with that thing that he's escort me out the door! LOL! I have a couple of nice butt plugs, but he is not the least bit interested. I have a feeling if I cajole him enough, I might be able to talk him into the beginner's butt plug… keep your fingers crossed!

11. Hey, introduce him to the Baby Jesus Butt Plug. That'll um...light up his life. I do need to ask you since you seem to have constant shipment of toys coming to your door…were you denied toys as a child? What was your fave toy growing up?

My favorite toys were my easel and chalk. I am an artist, and I started drawing at a very young age. When I was a kid, I didn't even know what sex was let alone that there were sex toys. Now, women have sex toys parties. When I was growing up, women had Tupperwear parties. Now they have sex toys parties. My have we come a long way!
12. Haven't we though? What was the most successful candy you guys ever tried out between the sheets?

I like the Kama Sutra Lover's Paintbox the best. I love chocolate, and this stuff is very thick. He sucked it off my nipples so hard I almost lactated again. LOL!

AJ says: What a naughty girl the Countess…I mean Lizzie…I mean Trish…oh you know who I mean…you're all so cool!

AJ, you love to butter it on thick. I might have to spank you, you bad boy. I know you'll like it. ;)

I'm going to ignore that! On behalf of the Dark Divas I’d like to thank her for stopping by today even though she wouldn’t let me spank her.

Thanks so much for the interview, AJ. It was a total pleasure. You are just as I know you – naughty and oh so raunchy!! Keep an eye on my blog, because I update it either daily or almost daily. That's the first place where you'll read about anything new coming down the pike.

And now… Lots and lotsa links!!

It was a real pleasure chatting with you, AJ. I enjoyed the interview very much. Thanks! Now back to writing ad copy about dildos. LOL! My sex work never ends. :)

What a fabulous interview! Now about your long-suffering, uh, I mean lovely husband; you've got to introduce him to the Aneros, I'm sure it will make him very, very happy.

Ah, boys and their bottoms...

Desirée Lee said...

What incredible candor! I'm in awe!

I admire the relationship that you and your husband have. That's something special for sure.

I also can't believe I forgot about using Altoids like that... must remember to pick up a can of them before my next date. *WEG*

Thank you for your awesome comments everyone. I love my Elizabeth and yes, she is honest and amazing and wonderful.

xo

Elizabeth Black said...

I'm loving the comments. Yes, I'm very abrupt and honest, maybe painfully so. I should try my hand at a memoir. I have plenty to say. ;)

Altoids (peppermint only) are great to use for oral sex. Remember Binaca? That stuff supposedly had the same effect. Don't try Pop Rocks. They do nothing but leave a great big sticky mess. Been there, done that. :D

If I can get my husband to try a beginner's butt plug, maybe he'll try an Aneros. Even thinking about anything going up there makes his butt pucker, though, so I have my work cut out for me.

Now, back to writing ad copy for glass dildos. LOL! I love my sex toys. :D
