Playing Dirty: Erotic Stories About Games
Edited by Cosmin Alexander
Deadline: February 15, 2014.
Games are an eternal part of human civilization, from the Egyptian game of Senet up through Second Life. Our definition of a game is broad and varied, and sex is no different. Courtship is often framed as a game, a strategic maneuvering of pieces, every gesture important. And the bedroom is a perfect place for games, from simple favorites like spin the bottle or truth or dare, to full on roleplaying sessions of dominance and submission. Games in the 21st century have also taken on a whole new meaning, as we encounter avatars in online gaming: anyone can be anyone, and identities blur, change, and reshape.
We’re looking for stories of games and sex. Perhaps: a 22nd century madame runs a virtual brothel in a massively multiplayer online game; a pair of ancient elven kings play their own form of strange fey-chess as part of an elaborate courtship ritual; a wizard’s game of riddles turns steamy. All stories must centrally feature some sort of game, be it a classic board game, a party game (pin the toy on your partner?), a tabletop roleplaying game (my paladin has a +2 holy dildo of orgasms!), or a video game. They must also feature some sort of science fiction or fantasy element, and, of course, lots and lots of delicious, steamy sex.
All sexualities and gender expressions are welcomed. (Please note: original characters and settings only.)
