Welcome to Elust 142.
Elust banners are now appearing on youporn, pornhub and redtube for people searching for erotica. This is mainly aimed at youporn which has an erotica page but the other tube sites were included too. I'm comparing the clicks coming from this with the clicks from the Fetlife banner last month to decide whether to continue with either campaign or maybe try adwords or twitter ads. Still experimenting with different ideas to promote Elust.
Each new edition is emailed out to all 332 subscribers and promoted on twitter and reddit. If everyone who contributes also re-posts the edition on their blog and retweets the tweet announcing the new edition, that's a huge audience you reach by participating.
I'd love to see more people adding their own comments after each link included in the edition when they do the re-post.
This is optional but I think making the edition unique when you publish it on your own blog will make the search engines happier. The digest code alone is fine but might not be as good for SEO as it would be if you post the digest code plus add your own comments. I'd like Elust to be like a book club where everyone participating reads everything in the new digest and shares their thoughts.
I spent an hour or two per day for the last 3 days copy and pasting the missing Elust editions from the wayback machine into the wordpress post editor. About 75 editions were missing from the archives but they're all restored now. If you click the Archives button at the bottom of the Elust homepage, you'll see all 142 editions going back to October 2009.

Thoughts & Advice on Sex & Relationships
Yes! Erotic masseur James shares his insights into cuckolding. Cuckolding can be "..a way of bringing you closer by increasing trust. Couples in secure, loving relationships feel safe sharing absolutely any sexual fantasy, no matter how taboo it seems." Hear, hear!
Tomideanlynch investigates the connection between physical fitness and sex drive.
This was one fantastic foursome 🙂
Can confirm. Awesome toy. It does look pretty intimidating. Like Judge Dredd's truncheon. Keep this one by the bed. Maybe not in the hand luggage.
This is the Rolls-Royce of sex slings. Luxurious. Inspiring greatness. An everlasting expression of the exceptional. Perfect for fucking on.
My sex toy shoe box became a sex toy drawer which became a sex toy suitcase and is now a sextoy walk in storage space with about 6 suitcases full of toys. Gotta collect 'em all.
Thoughts & Advice on Kink & Fetish
Lenore Sins introduces us to our prostates. I'm thrilled to see the prostate described as a hidden treasure! And also got this Beastie Boys sample playing in my head the second I read it = "Professor, what's another word for "pirate treasure"? Well, I think it's "booty." Booty, booty, that's what it is."
Some excellent alternatives to "Mistress" and "Master" for addressing Dominants. I love the idea of "Your Majesty" or "Your Highness." I'm going to make one of my slaves use these next time we do a chat session. The linguistic origins of all these terms are fascinating and well worth looking into so that we're aware of the cultural history and to help us choose the best terms for a given dynamic.
Highly recommended. The interviewer asks some very insightful questions and Madam Maeve is extremely knowledgeable and conveys her thoughts in a clear and concise manner. I liked her quote regarding Pro Dommes providing a unique type of therapy and subs experiencing a release of trauma.
I've used this get blindfolded and guess who's touching you game on MMF duos and with couples before to help guys explore their bisexuality. I never thought of using sex acts as rewards for guessing correctly. Definitely going to try this!
There's something very intense and ambiguous about Sissitrix's drawings and words. I love these posts. Still can't decide if I find this horrifying or sexy. Both.
Droit de seigneur: the alleged right of a medieval feudal lord to have sexual intercourse with a vassal's bride on her wedding night.
I know a cuckold or two who'd happily dial a time machine back to medieval times and serve a feudal lord.
Two lucky boys stumble into Mistress Victory's lair and get tied to St Andrews crosses, nipple clamped, butt plugged, e-stimmed and more leading to a forced-bi final act as poetic as it is sticky.
A sub receives an over the knee spanking. And she loves it.
