In ihrem dritten Gedichtband „Pandoras Playbox“ zeigt die Berliner Lyrikerin Anna Hetzer, dass man Traditionsbewusstsein mit Witz und neuen Narrativen verknüpfen kann: Aus lesbischer Sicht erkundet sie tradierte Mythen und arrangiert sie kritisch neu. Hymen und Hymnen, hysterische Krisen und historische Krisen liegen in diesen Gedichten nah beieinander - und vor ihrem sezierenden Blick ist niemand sicher, weder Aphrodite noch Dornröschen und Jean d’Arc. Und schon gar nicht die heiligen drei Könige: „sind die drei könige mit goldener saugglocke angereist / haben sie eine myrrhetinktur zur wundheilung angerührt / ihre nerven mit weihrauch betäubt?“.

Wearing gemstones associated with each of the days of the week will allow you to invoke the energy of their corresponding planets and deities. The days of the week were originally named for the sun, the moon, and the five ancient known planets. These planets were associated with particular gods depending upon the culture. For example, the Greeks, the Romans, and Germanic peoples each had their own gods associated with the different days of the week. To invoke the energy of the planets or deities listed below, wear or carry one of the listed stones on the corresponding day of the week.  Wearing crystal jewelry (or keeping a stone in your pocket) in this way is considered a talisman of good luck and protection. These stones can also help you ease into your day and work through whatever the day may bring.  To further connect with the energy of the crystal, try meditating with your chosen stone, creating a crystal grid, or placing the stone in a prominent position on your altar or in your sacred space. Correspondences for the Days of the Week: Monday (Moon's Day): Deities: Selene, Artemis, Hecate, Mani, Luna Stones: Selenite, Pearl, Moonstone, Silver, Blue Kyanite Keywords: Intuitive, Emotional, Feminine, Receptive Celestial Body: Moon  Tuesday (Tiu's Day): Deities: Mars, Aries, Tyr/Tiu Stones: Ruby, Red Garnet, Red Jasper, Carnelian, Sardonyx Keywords: Warrior, Passionate, Motivated Celestial Body: Mars Wednesday (Woden's Day): Deities: Mercury, Hermes, Odin/Woden Stones: Green Nephrite Jade, Turquoise, Amazonite, Blue Topaz, Chrysocolla Keywords: Trickster, Scientist, Inventor, Healthy Celestial Body: Mercury Thursday (Thor's Day): Deities: Jupiter, Zeus, Thor Stones: Lapis Lazuli, Blue Sapphire, Aquamarine, Alexandrite, Amethyst Keywords: Leader, Spiritual Seeker, Wisdom Keeper, Traveler Celestial Body: Jupiter  Friday (Freya's Day): Deities: Venus, Aphrodite, Freya/Frigga Stones: Emerald, Copper, Chrysoprase, Rose Quartz, Pink Tourmaline Keywords: Loving, Beautiful, Gentle Celestial Body: Venus  Saturday (Saturn's Day): Deities: Saturn, Kronos/Cronus Stones: Black Tourmaline, Brazilian Banded Agate, Jet, Shungite, Black Obsidian Keywords: Virtuous, Proud, Mysterious Celestial Body: Saturn  Sunday (Sun's Day): Deities: Apollo, Helios, Sol Stones: Sunstone, Imperial Golden Topaz, Gold, Amber, Heliodor Keywords: Brave, Masculine, Dominant Celestial Body: Sun  Another interesting way to use these stones is to find out on which day of the week you were born and use the corresponding stone as a personal talisman.   For example, I was born on a Friday, Freya's Day.  Something fascinating happens when we are born into this world, and the cosmos imprints that energy onto our spirit from the moment we are born.  If you embrace that energy and tap into the strength it can give you, you can create and do amazing things. So, if I wanted to strengthen my understanding of the archetypal energy of love and beauty, enhance my connection to Venus (or Aphrodite or Freya), or utilize the positive aspects of the planet Venus, I would carry or wear an Emerald, Copper, Chrysoprase, Rose Quartz, or Pink Tourmaline at all times as a personal talisman.

A Touch of Darkness is a retelling of the Greek story of Hades, the God of the Dead, and Persephone, the Goddess of Spring. Persephone had been hidden from the world by her mother, Demeter, but eventually convinced her to let her live a more mortal life in New Athens, where she's attending college. Her best friend Lexa convinces her to go to a local club, Nevernight, to celebrate getting an internship at New Athens News. Nevernight is a luxury night club owned by Hades, who uses the club to make bargains with mortals who willingly enter into these games. Persephone plays a few rounds of poker with Hades (but she doesn't know it's him until the game is over) and loses, so she must fulfill a bargain with him or spend eternity in the Underworld. She has six months to create life in the Underworld. In the process, they come to understand one another and fall in love. But not without some obstacles to their love…namely Demeter, Aphrodite, and Hades' personal assistant, Minthe.Were we familiar with the characters of Persephone and Hades and their stories before reading this?

Maxine Peake is an actor and writer who first came to public attention in 1998 as Twinkle in the Victoria Wood sitcom Dinnerladies. She went on to play Veronica in Paul Abbott's series Shameless and later became known for playing real people, including the Hillsborough campaigner Anne Williams, and Sara Rowbotham, the former health worker who exposed the sexual abuse scandal in Rochdale in 2012. Maxine was born in Bolton and after a rocky start at college – she was asked to leave her performing arts course after just two weeks but stuck it out – she won a scholarship to study at RADA. Three months before she was due to graduate she auditioned for Victoria Wood and won her first television role starring alongside Wood, Julie Walters and Anne Reid. Victoria Wood advised her to take on a diverse range of roles in order to avoid being typecast as what Maxine calls the “fat, funny northerner”. She took the advice to heart and extended her range playing Myra Hindley, Martha Costello QC in the legal drama Silk and Hamlet in a critically acclaimed production at the Royal Exchange theatre in Manchester. Maxine has also written plays including Beryl: A Love Story on Two Wheels about Beryl Burton, a Yorkshire woman who dominated 1960s cycling and held the record for the men's 12-hour time trial for two years.

The goddess of love, beauty, and femininity. But also the goddess of war and ambition. A multi-faceted personality — simultaneously passionate and poised. Are we talking about Inanna, Aphrodite, Venus… Or pianist Connie Han? Most audiences are familiar with more modern iterations of love goddesses, like Venus and Aphrodite. But Inanna's history in Sumerian mythology surpasses her look-alikes. Her inexorable lust for power and conquest are juxtaposed with her extreme femininity (she is the goddess of fertility after all). Who says you can't be both powerful and feminine? This is exactly what drew Connie Han to Inanna's story — and maybe because she saw a little of Inanna in herself. Dive into the world of Inanna through the lens of Connie's latest album, “Secrets of Inanna.” Connie takes you on a breathtaking ride through ancient kingdoms, the underworld, and back again. Tune in for 10 minutes to find out more. Resources: Learn more about Connie on her website, Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter .

Subscribe to Quotomania on Simplecast or search for Quotomania on your favorite podcast app!Only a handful of details are known about the life of Sappho. She was born around 615 B.C. to an aristocratic family on the Greek island of Lesbos. Evidence suggests that she had several brothers, married a wealthy man named Cercylas, and had a daughter named Cleis. She spent most of her adult life in the city of Mytilene on Lesbos where she ran an academy for unmarried young women. Sappho's school devoted itself to the cult of Aphrodite and Eros, and Sappho earned great prominence as a dedicated teacher and poet. A legend from Ovid suggests that she threw herself from a cliff when her heart was broken by Phaon, a young sailor, and died at an early age. Other historians posit that she died of old age around 550 B.C.The history of her poems is as speculative as that of her biography. She was known in antiquity as a great poet: Plato called her "the tenth Muse" and her likeness appeared on coins. It is unclear whether she invented or simply refined the meter of her day, but today it is known as "Sapphic" meter. Her poems were first collected into nine volumes around the third century B.C., but her work was lost almost entirely for many years. Merely one twenty-eight-line poem of hers has survived intact, and she was known principally through quotations found in the works of other authors until the nineteenth century. In 1898 scholars unearthed papyri that contained fragments of her poems. In 1914 in Egypt, archeologists discovered papier-mâché coffins made from scraps of paper that contained more verse fragments attributed to Sappho.Three centuries after her death the writers of the New Comedy parodied Sappho as both overly promiscuous and lesbian. This characterization held fast, so much so that the very term "lesbian" is derived from the name of her home island. Her reputation for licentiousness would cause Pope Gregory to burn her work in 1073. Because social norms in ancient Greece differed from those of today and because so little is actually known of her life, it is difficult to unequivocally answer such claims. Her poems about Eros, however, speak with equal force to men as well as to women.Sappho is not only one of the few women poets we know of from antiquity, but also is one of the greatest lyric poets from any age. Most of her poems were meant to be sung by one person to the accompaniment of the lyre (hence the name, "lyric" poetry). Rather than addressing the gods or recounting epic narratives such as those of Homer, Sappho's verses speak from one individual to another. They speak simply and directly to the "bittersweet" difficulties of love. Many critics and readers alike have responded to the personal tone and urgency of her verses, and an abundance of translations of her fragments are available today.From https://poets.org/poet/sappho. For more information about Sappho:“Sappho Fragment 16”: https://thebookbindersdaughter.com/2019/03/02/sappho-fragment-16/“Sappho”: https://www.poetryfoundation.org/poets/sappho“Who Was Sappho?”: https://www.newyorker.com/magazine/2015/03/16/girl-interrupted

Planet Buzz monthly panel about "Balancing Justice for ALL – Libra Venus Star Point". Venus orbit makes five 100-year-cycle in a conjunction with the power of the Sun in the same sign for each, known as Venus Star Points. On 22 October, Venus at 29 Libra replaces her cycle in Scorpio with the Sun that began in 1929, to begin a reconnecting pattern in the sign of Libra. So what does this mean for us? “Venus represents what we desire, what we love, what we value. She includes beauty, the arts, finances, relationships, partnerships. What we are attracted towards through our feelings. However, in Libra, one of her two signs she rules, Venus has a focus on justice and balance,” said Sue Minahan, founder, and host of the weekly show. "Her stories are from the beginning with a heritage from Inanna of Mesopotamia and Aphrodite of Greece where she pursued deep spiritual journeys in the underworld to purify. There is much to understand about her archetypal destiny giving us directions for finding the balance of justice for all.” Joining Sue Rose Minahan of Kailua-Kona, Big Island Hawaii, Astrologer/Consultant, and founder of Talk Cosmos will be Planet Buzz panel member Dr. Laura Tadd of Chattahoochee Hills, Georgia, and special visiting guest Wendy Stacey, Ba, MA, DIP LSA, London, England, UK with their bios below and found on Talk Cosmos website.

Lost in Eros Book III: The Return, part 5Experiencing Sexbots as an amusement park attraction.By BradentonLarry for Literotica -  Listen to the Podcast at Steamy Stories.After yet another trip to the showers and over breakfast, they discussed what to do next. They told Liu and Jimmy the abbreviated story of how they were trying to get up the mountain to the tower and how the gate wouldn't let them leave the resort until they really enjoyed themselves. Although they all admitted that they had thoroughly enjoyed themselves there in the Temple of Venus & Aphrodite, they suspected that the gate would not think they'd given the resort enough of a chance to impress them. It was Nicole who set the gears in motion for the day when she asked Liu, “What's that Clockwork Club like?”“Well, there are fun games and sexbots…” Liu began.“Wait,” Toshia said cut in. “Did you just say ‘sexbots'?”So, if only to satisfy Toshia, Nicole and Don's curiosity, they agreed to try the Clockwork Club next. They gathered their belongings from the Temple locker room. Jimmy, who preferred to spend the day by the pool, walked with them most of the way, and the remaining seven headed over to their next stop.The Clockwork Club was less imposing than the Temple, and had a much more complicated motif. Don thought the general structure looked as if someone had begun with a rather large, staid Victorian or Edwardian building, and then tried to make it some sort of steam punk. Strange weather-vane-ish instruments protruded at odd places, and there were quite a few smoke stacks poking up out of the roof all of which seemed to be producing steady quantities of steam and various colored smokes. There were many windows, all of them a deep emerald green.Stepping through the fancy, over-large wooden doors, they found themselves in what was at first glance an ordinary casino. There were flashing lights, row upon row of old-fashioned-looking slot machines with people cranking their levers, occasional ringing bells proclaiming winners, the happy sound of tokens spilling into waiting trays, and gleeful exclamations of delight. Of course, the people were all naked and seemed to be deriving some of their delight from sexual contact with their machines. And, then there was also the bulky gold robot trundling up to them; that was different.“Hello ladies and gentlemen!” said the robot. “Welcome to the Clockwork Club!” The machine had a box-like head with a pair of “eyes” and a mesh-covered speaker mouth. It had two arms with crude hands at the ends, but no legs, only what seemed to be wheels at its base. Don was particularly amused by the top hat that was perched over its green-lensed camera eyes. “I'm George. Is this your first visit to our Club?”“Not mine, George,” Liu said with a smile and a wave for the robot.“The rest of us are new,” Don answered.“I hope you enjoy our fine establishment. As a welcoming gift, please accept these complimentary tokens to get you started in our casino.” There was a whirring sound, then the unmistakable sound of tokens cascading into a metal bucket, and a door opened in George's front. When a silvery bucket slid out, Don had to move quickly to keep it from spilling out on the floor. “If you would like more buckets, you may get those at the guest service desk over there.” One of George's arms pointed in the general direction of a large wooden counter behind which were several other robots. “Most of our guests prefer to enjoy the Club without their clothing. We have convenient lockers available for your use, at a low, low cost of one token each. Would you like me to show you to the locker room?”“I can do that, George,” Liu offered.“Thank you, sir or madam,” George said cheerfully. “Would you like to purchase a tour of the Club for the low, low cost…”“I'll do that too, George,” Liu said.“Thank you, sir or madam. If there is anything else you need please do not hesitate to ask myself or one of our many other servicebots. Have a great time everyone!” And, George promptly backed away from them.Although he was eager to explore this weird casino, Don knew this group, so he suggested, “Maybe we should visit that locker room first.”Once they were all once again happily naked, Liu led the way back out to the main room. She pointed out that “The slot machines are divided into men's and women's.” She led them over to one for a woman and showed them the saddle that sat in front of the machine. There was a thick dildo jutting up from the middle of the saddle. Liu explained, “Some of them don't have dildos, some have ones for asses, and some have both regular and ass dildos. You sit on them like this, put in a token, pull the lever down, and if the right combination of symbols comes up … oh!”The strange symbols that clicked into place in the machine's display must have been a winning combination, because Liu trembled all over as the saddle and/or dildo did something obviously pleasurable to her. After a moment, she said, “Um, most of the time that doesn't happen; sometimes you just get a little tease, and sometimes you get much more. Oh, and sometimes you win a bunch of tokens, and there's the grand prize which is AMAZING and you get a lot of tokens too.”Nicole said, “I think we're going to need our own buckets.”As they went back to the customer service counter to get six more buckets and then divide up the tokens evenly, except for Liu who got one less, Don asked, “What are the tokens good for, besides more turns at the machines?”“Oh, well, you can trade them in for sessions with the sexbots,” she smiled.“And those are good?” Toshia asked.“Not everyone likes them, but I think they're a lot of fun. You know how sometimes they'll say 'he fucks like a machine'? Well, I've never met a man who can fuck like these machines.”“Hmm,” Toshia mused, to Don's great amusement.“If you win really big, there's the orgasmatron, for women, and a special sexbot for the men,” Liu went on. “I've never seen her, but they say she's incredible. There are other things to do here, too. Some people play games to exchange tokens between each other, and there are some rooms where people can use some of the Club's toys to play with each other.”Don was more interested in the odd economics of this casino than actually using the machines to get off, but he cheerfully watched as everyone else moved to give the slot machines a try. At this point Don wasn't surprised to see that Toshia stopped by an automated lube dispenser and then selected a slot machine with a combination vaginal and anal set of dildos. He was too distracted watching Toshia, though, to see what the other girls selected. As it so happened, it was Toshia who had the first payout. On her fifth attempt, she got a small prize of eighteen tokens. Shortly after this, Amy won what seemed to be about ten seconds of stimulation that made her shriek in surprise and then carry on depositing tokens and pulling the handle with more determination. Then from the other side of the aisle, Victor said, “Oh wow! That's nice!”Don looked to see that the big man seemed to have found a machine with a sleeve for his cock, a cup for his balls, and a small dildo for up his butt. Apparently these mechanisms were able to give Victor the equivalent of what Amy's machine had done for her, because he continued to play with similar enthusiasm.Seeing that everyone, including the self-appointed tour guide Liu, was quite content to stay there and enjoy the slot machines for a while, Don decided to do a bit of exploring on his own. Taking his bucket and tokens, he moved off, down long aisles of flashing, vibrating machines and past many eager “gamblers”. He paused to watch a lithe naked girl gasping and grinding as she won a minor jackpot, but then moved on. Toward the back of the main room on the ground floor Don came upon an area dominated by three large roulette tables. He expected to find everyone plugged into devices around the tables, but it seemed that everyone was actually just playing roulette. Well, there was at least one woman playing as she leaned forward over the edge of the table and a strapping young man screwed her from behind. For the most part, though, these tables just seemed to be a way for players to try to increase their number of tokens.At the very rear of the large room, there was a large, upright “wheel of fortune” device. Don stood by for several moments, trying to work out what was going on for himself. After depositing several tokens in a slot near a bright orange gate, which opened when the appropriate amount had been deposited, each player stepped up to the wheel and gave it an energetic spin. Naturally, there was a variety of spin results: several different token prize amounts, delivered with flashing lights and alarms via a chute to the side of the wheel; a couple of spin-agains; a few flat out losers; some wedges that Don couldn't make out, and didn't see demonstrated; and one result he thought was particularly interesting. If a player got that result he or she received only a colored ticket and proceeded off to a little lounge area off to the side. If anyone else was there with a matching-color ticket, the two people commenced playing together. If not, the ticket bearer was apparently obliged to wait there until someone turned up with the right ticket. Don wondered if anyone wound up spending hours just sitting there.Don decided to give the wheel a spin. He found that he had to deposit five tokens, which he did. The orange gate swung up and Don stepped up to the wheel. Setting his little silver bucket on a conveniently placed pedestal, he took a firm hold of two of the little handles and gave the wheel a mighty spin. It seemed to take a very long time to begin to slow down, and Don noticed that he was caught up in the excitement of the game. The wheel came to a stop on a wedge that was simply yellow, and a yellow ticket promptly popped out of the little slot next to the prize-token chute.As he took his ticket, Don thought this was a very clever device. Although he had not won anything; was, in fact, five tokens down; Don still felt like he'd won something and was still actively involved in the game, all for the price of a paper-ticket, if such things had a price here.Picking up his bucket and turning to the lounge/play area, he saw that another person was already there with a yellow ticket; a rather young looking, thin East Asian guy with long hair. Don wasn't particularly interested in playing with this young man, and he sensed a bit of reluctance on the other side of the handshake they shared. “I'm Don,” he smiled calmly.“Steve,” was the apparently nervous reply.“Steve?” Don repeated, a bit surprised at the very non-Asian name, but got nothing but a blank nod from Steve.“Are we allowed to wait until a woman wins a yellow ticket?” Don asked with a smile.“Oh,” Steve grinned, “I suppose we could. Good idea.”Don chuckled to himself, and looked around the lounge. There was an attractive woman holding a red ticket sitting nearby, watching the wheel spinners, and a male-female couple who had matched blue tickets a bit before Don had gotten his ticket. The man was lying back along a couch, while the woman knelt in front of him and gave him what looked like a quite satisfactory blowjob from where Don was sitting.The next person to join them was a woman, but she scored a blue ticket, and promptly took a seat next to the woman who had the red one. Don thought he and Steve ought to suggest ditching this game to the two un-partnered women, but realized this was hardly in the spirit of the Clockwork Club. They didn't have to wait long, though, before someone else won a ticket. This time it was a woman with a red ticket who obviously had no compunction about a bit of same-sex play. Soon the two women were engaged in an enthusiastic 69 within arm's reach of Steve, who was extremely distracted, and visibly excited, by watching them. The first couple; with the blue tickets; had finished and wandered off to the rest of the casino, before another player joined them: a very pretty young woman with another red ticket. Finally, after a string of out-right loser spins on the wheel, a cute little woman with long, straight, brown hair, small breasts and long legs won herself a yellow ticket.She grinned as she saw that there were two men waiting for her in the lounge area. She stuck out her hand and said, “Hi, I'm Emily! Were you boys waiting for little ol' me?”“We certainly were,” Don smiled back, and Steve nodded enthusiastically.“Well, that was sweet of you,” Emily continued to grin. “Let's go back over here and see how I can thank you for waiting so patiently.”Before they could make it to the couch, though, Emily stopped them, dropped to her knees and was soon taking turns sucking on first Steve and then Don. As she went down on them, she looked up at them with her cheerful brown eyes, which Don thought was the sexiest thing he'd seen all day. Soon lovely Emily was on her hands and knees between Don and Steve, sucking the former and fucking the latter. Steve, who had been getting riled up for a while, didn't take too long to come, shoving forward into Emily and groaning loudly. As soon as he was done, he smiled at Don and headed back into the casino.Kids, Don thought to himself as he coaxed Emily up and over to the couch. She pushed him down on his back, and immediately climbed up over him, planting her feet on the firm couch by his hips. He smiled back up at her as she lowered herself down onto his straining cock. As Don felt her tight, wet embrace taking hold of his shaft, Emily leaned forward to rest her hands on his shoulders. Don reached under to support her butt in his hands as she began to ride up and down. Her hair was hanging down around her face and she never stopped looking him in the eye or smiling as she fucked him.“Damn, that feels so good,” Emily said. “You're going so deep!” They continued on in this position for quite a while, but as she began to get tired, Don suggested they change things up a bit. She lay on top of him as he twisted around and then sat up with her still mounted on him. Then, holding her up on him, Don stood up. Emily put her feet down on the couch behind Don and held onto his shoulders. He bent his knees, pistoning his cock up into her as she flexed herself in front of him. This position was easy to maintain, provided lots of clitoral stimulus, and put them face to face. Soon he was watching her cheerful face scrunching up as she gasped and shuddered with an intense orgasm. Before she was done, she leaned in and kissed him; hard and long! This was the final straw for Don and he felt himself boiling over up inside her, filling her with his hot cum.Emily thanked him for their mutual “winnings”, as she laughingly called it, kissed him again, and headed off into the casino. Watching her petite frame walk away, Don decided it was time to head back and check up on the rest of the group. He was unsurprised to see that everyone was still there. Both Toshia and Liu noticed Don's return and gave him brief waves from their adjoining machines.Although he'd been gone for almost an hour, Don was back in time to see the first really big win. Naturally enough, the first one to win more than a brief titillation or a small pot of tokens was Toshia. As soon as the last symbol clicked into place, she said, “Ha! I won!” Then she stopped and her mouth just gaped open for a moment. “Oh my God!” she gasped. “That's … oh fuck! Oh fuck!!”Don watched as she held on to the front of her machine and shook as the saddle and both the dildos did a combination of vibrating, pulsing and thrusting things that transported Toshia into a shaking trembling orgasm like nothing he'd ever seen. She cried out inarticulately as the machine carried her into another orgasm and then another.As she came down, she leaned forward on the machine and breathed, “Oh wow.”Liu came over with a broad grin and said, “That's what the sexbots do for you, only more.”“More would kill me,” Toshia said weakly. Then, after a moment, she looked up at Don and said, “I want to try one!”Don laughed and said, “OK. How many tokens do we need?”“One thousand,” Liu answered quickly.“And how many do we get with a jackpot on one of these machines?” Don asked as he crossed the aisle to an unoccupied unit.“It varies, but you hardly ever win a jackpot.”Don deposited a token, but did not mount the machine's saddle. As he pulled the handle down, Don looked over his shoulder to Liu and Toshia and said, “You mean 'hardly anyone ever wins a jackpot', not that I hardly ever do.”Don held his bucket under the prize bin expectantly, even before the second symbol clicked into place. Sure enough, Don hit the jackpot. Flashing lights, a siren and a truly deafening barrage of ringing bells accompanied a flood of tokens pouring into the bin, Don's bucket and onto the floor. The display on the front of the machine indicated that he had just won 750 tokens.“That's amazing!” Liu gaped from over his shoulder. She had abandoned her own machine. “You just played one token.”“I'm just lucky, I guess,” Don shrugged. He knew however that he had merely applied his technique of focused expectation that he had used so successfully here in Eros, in finding the Manor's exit and in fighting the Sisterhood. He expected to get a jackpot, so he got a jackpot.He passed his now heavy bucket of tokens to Toshia, who had joined him and Liu. Don took Toshia's bucket, dumped her pile into the nearly full bucket of his that she was holding and moved to another machine. In a few moments, there was another blaring claxon, another barrage of bright, flashing lights, and another cascade of tokens.“How do you do that?” Liu asked amazed.“Magic,” Don smiled smugly at her. “You promised to give us a tour of the club, Liu. Can you do that and show us to the sexbots?”“Sure,” the pretty young woman said. “Anyone else want to come along?”“I want to get one of those jackpots!” Amy said.Victor, Shelonda and Nicole all seemed to agree with Amy. So, Liu led just Toshia and Don off toward the back of the main room, where she showed them the roulette tables and the “Wheel of Chance.”“It's fun,” Don assured Toshia, briefly telling her what he'd been doing while she played the slots.“We should come back and give it a spin,” Toshia smiled, “if I survive the sexbot, that is.”Liu led them up a circular staircase to the second floor, where they passed a number of small rooms which she said were, “Remote play rooms.” As they went down the long corridor lined with doors, Liu explained: “You go into a room and get into the chair, and then you wait. On the third floor, someone deposits some tokens and they get to control a dildo, or two, or an artificial pussy that moves into you, or on you, Don. They get to watch you on a screen, but you don't get to see them. You can talk to each other, though. Oh, and the room you get when you go upstairs is random, so you never know who you're going to be playing with.”“That sounds very interesting,” Toshia mused.“Another thing to try out, eh?” Don winked at her.Following Liu's delectable backside up two more flights of stairs, they came to the fourth floor, where they were greeted by a robot that looked just like George downstairs, except that it was silver and had no top hat. This one addressed them with a woman's voice and said, “Welcome, sir or madam. My name is Dolores and I am your hostess here in the sexbot rooms. Please deposit your … one thousand … tokens in the bin to my left.”This project took several minutes, because Toshia didn't want to give up any extra of “her” tokens. Once they had deposited exactly one thousand tokens into the bin, Dolores said, “Thank you. Please follow me, sir or madam.”The hostess robot trundled down the hallway, turned a corner, and led them to a door, which clicked open as she approached. Dolores gestured vaguely at the now open room, and said, “Here you go. Please enjoy yourself thoroughly.”“We'll wait out here,” Don suggested.“Oh no you don't!” Toshia said with feeling. “I'm not letting a robot have its way with me without someone there to pull its plug, or whatever, if necessary.”“Oh, it will respond to your commands,” Liu assured her.“Yeah, sure,” Toshia said.“OK,” Don laughed. “We'll come watch. You don't have to twist my arm.”The softly lit room they entered had warm carpeting and wood-paneled walls. In the center of the room was something that looked like a modified old-fashioned dentist's chair. A number of attachments, including a pair of stirrups that Don presumed looked like those found in a gynecologist's office, piqued Don's curiosity. In the corner of the room, was a barrel-bodied robot straight out of a 1950s B-movie. It seemed to have a soft black rubber or latex coating covering almost all of its body.“You get up on the chair,” Liu was saying, as if Toshia and Don wouldn't be preoccupied with the robot. “It will adjust for you, and you can push it into any position you want.”Toshia looked over the chair and the stirrups skeptically, but then shrugged and hopped up onto the small seat. It was shallow so that she was already scooted forward. As soon as her butt hit the padding, the sexbot in the corner clicked to life. Lights blinked on its dome covered head and it took several steps forward toward the chair. There was a whirring sound followed by a series of clacks.“Good day, ma'am,” the robot said, in a voice that was a cross between a comically kitschy metallic stereotype and a soulful bass. Both Don and Toshia chuckled at the weird combination. “Please relax. Giving you the ultimate sexual experience is my only purpose. Let me know if you want me to do anything differently. Believe me, I am extremely responsive.”“OK,” Toshia said as she put her feet in the stirrups and pushed them apart, spreading her legs wide for the sexbot. With a grin Don could tell was nervous, she said, “Show me what you got, big guy.”The bot lumbered forward a few more steps. Then it reached out with a big, black, three fingered hand and touched Toshia's leg. There was more of that whirring sound and more clacking, and then a panel opened in the front of the machine's torso and a prodigious cock-shaped dildo extended.Don moved to Toshia's left, where she reached out and caught his hand, pulling him close. Liu took up a position her right. The sexbot meanwhile moved in closer, moving his large hand up the inside of her leg with surprising gentleness. When that hand reached her crotch, the sexbot paused, covering her pussy. Don heard a low buzzing sound, and Toshia gave a little shriek and squeezed Don's hand. He watched as she pushed herself further forward against the vibrating hand. She whimpered a little when the bot pulled its hand away and moved in between her legs.The fat head of the dildo aimed itself unerringly between Toshia's lips, and she moaned, “Oh yeah, that feels good,” as it entered her. The machine inched closer to Toshia until its front was pressed against her. Don heard the sound of pistons and hydraulics, and Toshia gasped, “Damn, it's fucking me!”Don was transfixed watching Toshia's slender body arching back on the odd chair while the bulky black robot pumped her steadily with its hard dildo.“Damn!” Toshia said. “It's getting bigger, and faster!” Don could hear the bot's mechanisms cycling faster. “Uh huh; yeah, fuck me faster!”The mechanical man obliged, and Toshia let go of Don's hand so she could grab both of the chair's handles and pull herself forward into the robot. Don found himself grinning as Toshia grunted and began to moan. Don reached out to brush Toshia's hair with his right hand and cupped her left breast with his left hand. Seeing what he was up to, Liu imitated Don on the other side. The two of them proceeded to pinch and twist at Toshia's nipples as the sexbot continued to pump its thick dildo-cock in and out of Toshia's pussy.Don realized then that for some time there had been a slowly rising hum; some part or parts of the sexbot were vibrating against Toshia. Then Toshia was coming; loud and hard. Gasping and shaking, she shoved herself back onto the machine as it fucked her. The bot continued to piston and vibrate in and against Toshia as she writhed. When she came down a little, Don leaned over and lowered his mouth onto the breast he had been tormenting with his fingers. Again, Liu followed his lead, and the two of them got cozy over Toshia's tits, sucking and pulling on her nipples.The pace of the bot's fucking and the pitch of the humming seemed to continue to gradually increase, and soon enough Toshia threw her head back and shrieked as she began to come again, and again. She shook and twisted between the sexbot, Liu and Don. After several minutes of this, Toshia groaned and called out, “No, no! Stop!”Don and Liu lifted their heads and looked at Toshia, who was sagging back against the chair. The robot quickly decreased its various functions until it was still inside and against Toshia's body.“That was a-MA-zing!” Toshia finally managed.“Have you had enough already?” Liu asked.“Enough? Already?” Toshia laughed, a bit deliriously. “There's more?”“He's yours until you leave the room,” Liu nodded.“Oh my!” Toshia giggled.About ten minutes later, after Toshia had rolled over, while the sexbot fucked both her pussy and ass like, well, a machine, Don had the pleasure of having his very hard, flesh and blood cock sucked by Toshia, who seemed to have hit a feverish plateau of orgasmic ecstasy. When Toshia finally collapsed, spent, Liu and Don caressed and kissed her until she was ready to be helped out of the room.Don had no interest in sampling the mechanical pleasures available in the clockwork club. He was very much aware of the fact that for him sex was almost entirely about the woman, or women, he was with. He got off on getting them off; without that element, he felt it would just be a complicated form of masturbating, and that hardly seemed appealing, given the wealth of more, shall we say, collaborative options available to him. This, however, was before he met Galatea, but that is a story for another time.To be continued..By BradentonLarry for Literotica

“Loving is an authentic psychological task, the most demanding there is, just because it activates in us new ways of knowing ourselves.'" --- Aldo CarotenutoThe myth of Eros and Psyche can be read as a myth of initiation orchestrated by the goddess Aphrodite, a personification (or archetype) of love, sexuality, and beauty as enlivening powers that bring us into relationship with someone or something in particular. The story tells us something about the demands of this type of love, and what is required to express and live it. It also offers an opportunity to reflect on the transpersonal energies and patterns that shape human life and comprise our destiny.Support the show

Lost in Eros Book III: The Return, part 3By BradentonLarry for Literotica -  Listen to the Podcast at Steamy Stories.Shelonda was next and explained that she had been Toshia's counterpart, picking up discarded towels from a different part of the Temple. “I was bending over all the time, and people kept squeezing my butt and playing with me. I liked it at first, but I got really horny very quickly. Fortunately, a guy stopped and started fucking me. I was really getting into it, and soon a bunch of guys and a woman were all over me.” Shelonda provided all the details requested, but by now it was clear that everyone was getting frisky enough that they would need to go find a room to enjoy or start playing right there in the banquet room.Fortunately, Nicole didn't have anything much different to report than the others. She had been assigned the job of masseuse's assistant: fetching miscellaneous supplies, helping guests off the table after they were thoroughly relaxed, assisting with making sure everyone had a happy ending, etc. Of course, she'd had a wonderful time, and seemed to have actually done less work than anyone else.Then they had to decide where to start their free exploration of the Temple of Venus & Aphrodite. “I have to admit,” Toshia volunteered, “that I'd like to see what an orgy that's been going on for seven years looks like.”“And I'd like to check out that ‘dark room' whatever that is,” Don added.“A bit of an orgy sounds good to me,” Amy said with a grin.Toshia took Don's hand as they headed for the door, and said, “Then we'll check out the dark room.”The main orgy room was easy to find. It took up almost the entire fourth floor. There were copious cushions scattered all over the floor, which had soft, luxurious carpeting anyway. Chairs, couches, loveseats, chaise lounges, day beds, and ottomans were abundantly available. Here and there steps led up or down to slightly different levels. Everywhere, though, there were naked bodies pleasuring each other.“Fun!” Amy declared. Everyone agreed with her and immediately started looking for places to join in. Amy took Victor by the big hand and led him into the orgy. From where she was Toshia saw Amy dropping to her knees in front of Victor, eagerly taking his big cock into her mouth.Toshia grabbed Don by the arm, pulled him in the direction of Amy and Victor, and pulled him with her down to the floor. The knelt facing each other as they kissed. Don's hands moved greedily over her back, finding their way down to her ass and squeezing it tightly. Toshia laughed happily as Don's mouth descended on her neck and her hand wrapped around his already stiff cock. Then Shelonda and Nicole joined them, one on either side, Shelonda on Toshia's right, and Nicole on her left. The two black girls proceeded to kiss and caress Don and Toshia everywhere they could reach. Shelonda's right hand slipped in between Toshia and Don and found its way down to Toshia's crotch. Soon Toshia felt fingers slipping up inside her and brushing over her clit. Don was still kissing, sucking and biting at her neck, Nicole was pinching her nipple, Don was squeezing her ass, and Shelonda was fucking her fingers in and out, pressing her hand against Toshia's clit, and Toshia… Then Toshia was coming hard, gasping, shaking and moaning between her friends.Those friends gently laid her down on the floor, and then Don was between her legs, slipping his hard cock up inside her ready pussy. Toshia smiled up at him and pulled him deeper into her best embrace. “Fuck me, love,” she said. “Fill me up with your cum.”Don leaned down and kissed her. It was just a peck at first, but became a long, passionate, fiery kiss as he moved in and out of her there among the other naked bodies. For a while it was just the two of them, alone on the edge of a sea of writhing, gasping, grunting people. They were part of the orgy that had gone on for seven years, but for now it was just the two of them making quiet intense love. Don gave her another sweet, slow orgasm before she felt him pressing more urgently into her. Then he was thrusting hard as he pumped and pumped his cum into her pussy just as she'd asked. He trembled in her arms and buried his face in her shoulder. Toshia held him close to her and caressed his back and held his head to her. They lay like that for several long, sweet moments sharing their loving intimacy.Then, they became aware of their surroundings. First there were the now familiar sounds of Shelonda and Nicole enjoying themselves fully, and then there were the hands that were moving over their bodies. Toshia felt a hand slipping up along the length of her leg and another that brushed against her hand where it lay on Don's back.Don raised his head to look around, only to have a young woman with straight brown hair and startling white teeth pull his head back so she could lean over his shoulder and give him a long, passionate kiss. When she finally let him go, Don laughed and said, “Well, it's nice to meet you too.”“Hi, I'm Brandi,” the woman grinned back at Don and then down at Toshia. “Mind if I cut in?”Neither Toshia nor Don were sure who she was asking, but when they didn't object, Brandi assumed they didn't mind, and said, “Great!” She then wormed her way in front of Don to lower her mouth to Toshia's. Suddenly Toshia was kissing this beautiful, aggressive new woman, whose hand was already moving across to cup Toshia's tit firmly. Toshia found herself reaching up to hold Brandi's head in place so she would keep kissing her. As Don pulled away, Toshia murmured her disappointment but continued to kiss Brandi. She was happy to feel Brandi's fingers moving down over her belly and then slipping between Toshia's legs where they found Don and Toshia's mingled juices spilling out. Without hesitating, Brandi pushed her fingers and a healthy helping of those juices up into Toshia, who arched her back and moaned into her new lover's mouth.Toshia was still lying on her back, with Brandi kneeling over her almost perpendicularly to Toshia's left, kissing her Toshia and reaching down to finger Toshia's pussy. This left Toshia's right breast exposed, and someone got his or her mouth in there and fastened upon Toshia's erect nipple. As this mysterious new mouth sucked and pulled on Toshia's tit, Toshia felt this person, who she was now sure was a woman, caressing her ass, and then sliding her hand around to join Brandi's in playing with her. Two more fingers pushed up into Toshia's pussy, and Toshia began to moan around Brandi's tongue. When those second two fingers pulled out of her Brandi worked a third of her fingers into Toshia, and then the mystery woman pushed her slippery two fingers slowly up Toshia's ass. This pushed Toshia over the edge, and she began to shake and cry out with an intense, long orgasm.Brandi finally broke their kiss and Toshia realized from the gentle swaying of the girl over her that Brandi had been getting fucked from behind almost all the time she had been fingering Toshia. Toshia smiled back up at the pretty woman's face and noticed that she also had beautiful full breasts, and Toshia couldn't resist reaching out with her left hand to catch one of Brandi's tits in her hand. Then, she looked down to see the lovely, dusky hued woman or Iranian or Indian descent who was still fingering Toshia's ass. Toshia grinned at this woman, who smiled back. Toshia began to work her body around clockwise, taking a moment to carefully throw her right leg over the dark-eyed beauty, and being careful not to dislodge those probing fingers, until she was able to scoot under Brandi's body to play with those beautiful firm tits of hers. The beautiful brown woman fingering her ass moved in between Toshia's legs and began to lick and suck at her pussy and clit, while Brandi lowered herself so Toshia could get her mouth on Brandi's nipples, one at a time. All while someone steadily fucked Brandi.Toshia could tell from the way Brandi was moving over her that the man behind her was fucking her harder and harder, and then knew he was coming inside her. When Brandi began to shift and threatened to pull away, Toshia reached up to grab her waist and pulled her closer. Brandi got the hint, smiled down at Toshia and carefully moved into position with her pussy over Toshia's mouth. With her hands still on Brandi's hips, Toshia pulled the pretty woman down until she could get her tongue up inside Brandi's cum-filled pussy. Toshia drank down the thick, sweet jizz and promptly began to lick at Brandi's clit. Meanwhile, the woman licking Toshia's clit and fingering her ass had pushed her thumb up into Toshia's pussy, and was flexing her wrist so that Toshia's pussy and ass were being steadily fucked by her digits. Soon Toshia's back was arching up off the carpet as she came long and hard between the two women. She didn't stop licking at Brandi, though, and was soon also rewarded with feeling the pretty woman sitting on her face trembling and shaking as Toshia brought her off.This seemed to be the signal for their little threesome to dissolve. As soon as she caught her breath, Brandi carefully got off Toshia's face and without another word moved off to find fun elsewhere. Toshia also felt the woman between her legs pulling away, but Toshia sat up and caught the woman's head in her hands and pulled her up toward her. They met with a long, playful kiss, mingling the tastes of Toshia's and Brandi's pussies as well as traces of Don's cum and that of whoever had fucked Brandi.“I'm Toshia,” she said as she leaned back, pulling the other woman back and over her.“I'm Nadja,” said the other woman with a smile. Her fingers and thumb slipped out of Toshia's ass and pussy, but she immediately pushed her fingers up into Toshia's wet and grasping pussy, pressing the heel of her hand against Toshia's clit, as she lay down on top of Toshia and continued to kiss her.Toshia moved her hands over Nadja's petite frame, over her back and down to her tight little ass. She was unsurprised to feel a man's hands also exploring Nadja's backside. Then, whoever the man was, his hands moved up to Nadja's narrow waist and pulled her up a bit. Nadja stopped kissing long enough to say, “I believe I'm about to be violated.”“Mind if I watch?” Toshia grinned.“As long as you do it while you kiss me,” Nadja said, lowering her mouth to Toshia's again.Sure enough, Nadja's motions on top of Toshia indicated that she was being slowly and steadily fucked. Toshia worked her left hand up between them until she could feel the hard cock sliding in and out of Nadja's pussy, and then began to stroke Nadja's clit with her fingers. Nadja kept working her fingers in and out of Toshia pussy while kissing Toshia and being fucked from behind. Toshia found the whole scene incredibly erotic, particularly as Nadja began to come without taking her mouth off Toshia's. The tiny woman moaned and trembled between Toshia and the man behind her without pausing in her passionate kissing and fingering.Toshia thought she might come again, but the man fucking Nadja beat her to it. Nadja murmured approval into Toshia's mouth, and Toshia felt warm cum on her fingers. As the man pulled out of Nadja, spilling more cum over Toshia's hand, Nadja looked down at Toshia and said, “Now that was delightful.”Toshia grinned and said, “I'm not done with you, yet. Sit on my face.”“If you insist,” Nadja laughed. With almost startling enthusiasm, she pulled her fingers from Toshia and crawled up until she was kneeling over Toshia's face.Holding the tiny girl's ass in her hands, Toshia pulled her down to her mouth, where she began to lick up the man's cum and then to lavish her oral attention on Nadja's hard clit. Nadja pressed down on Toshia's mouth, and leaned back a bit, squeezing her small tits tightly. As Toshia sucked on Nadja's clit and then went back to tonguing it firmly, she thought, This must be what people really mean when they talk about Heaven.As Don pulled away to let the new girl, Brandi, get acquainted with Toshia, he decided to have a look around to see what everyone else was up to. He carefully stood up and took a couple of steps to get out of the actual orgy.He spotted Amy on her back, her head on a good-sized pillow. Straddling her chest with his hands on her head and his cock sliding in and out of her mouth and throat was a trim East Asian guy with his black hair buzzed almost down to his scalp. Amy's legs were parted and ready for someone to get between them. Nearby, Victor was standing over an athletic white guy with short, curly reddish hair, who was sitting facing the same way as Victor and who was sucking on Victor's big cock and fondling his balls, all while Victor flexed his knees, pushing that schlong of his in and out of the other fellow's mouth.Don noticed that an adorable woman was now joining in on Brandi and Toshia's little session, and that a man had begun to fuck Brandi from behind. Near this scene, Shelonda had secured the services of a tall, fit black guy with short hair, who seemed as young as the Nymphets to Don. The young man was sitting on the floor, leaning back on his arms and with his knees slightly bent. Shelonda was sitting on his cock, leaning back, supporting herself with her arms and riding up and down on the cock inside her. Meanwhile, an athletic woman, with large tits, long legs, a tight ass and long straight black hair, had her mouth on one of Shelonda's tits and seemed to have a hand down playing with Shelonda's clit.Before he could locate Nicole, Don felt a warm hand slide up his arm and then squeeze his shoulder. He turned to look into the face of a very pretty woman, who he would guess to be Chinese. She had short black hair, an impishly coy expression and surprisingly blue eyes. Before Don could ask her name or even properly appreciate her slender frame and long legs, this beauty smiled and sank to her knees in front of him. She stroked his cock with her long fingers and kissed the head before sucking it into her mouth. Don gently reached down to caress her hair and watched as she began to bob her head up and down on his quickly hardening shaft.Looking up from this perfect vision for a moment, Don spotted Nicole. The petite young woman was on her back, basically in a missionary position, a muscular white guy with long, curly, brown hair fucking her steadily. However, Nicole's legs were extended out straight, in a V aimed at the ceiling, and there was a tall, caramel skinned woman with a spectacular ass and long, wavy black hair with a bit of gray in it sitting on Nicole's face. In front of this second woman, making out with her, was an athletic Polynesian-looking woman with large breasts and long, wild hair who was in turn sitting on someone's face.By now the mysterious woman in front of him was sucking Don's cock with enthusiasm, and he was again rock hard. He noticed that Toshia was moving around to get under Brandi's body, while the other woman kept her hand between Toshia's legs. Don realized there was too much going on in this huge sex-filled room, and he would simply have to focus his attention. He didn't have to deliberate long to decide where to direct that focus first.Pushing her gently back from his sex, Don bent down, took the Asian woman's face in his hands and kissed her. She responded warmly. After taking the time to really enjoy the sensations of kissing a new and very friendly woman, he said, “I'm Don.”“And I'm Liu,” she smiled.“I'm very pleased to meet you, Liu,” Don smiled. “Now, why don't we lie down so I can give as good as I'm getting?”“That sounds wonderful,” Liu grinned and backed away a bit to let Don lie down on his back. She wasted no time then in getting into position over him. Don felt her mouth on his prick again, as he reached up to pull Liu down so he could get his mouth and tongue on her moist, delicious sex. He ran his tongue from her clit up along between her lips, tasting her sweet pussy. She was short enough that his arms were behind her legs, so Don had to lean up a bit to get his mouth on her, but it also meant that he could easily use his hands to caress her ass and spread her cheeks a bit as he pushed his long, strong tongue up inside her. He was aware of her mouth and hands on his cock and balls, but Don concentrated on what he was doing. When he began to focus on her clit, sucking and licking on it, he pushed two fingers up into her pussy. Apparently Liu loved this because she promptly pushed back on Don. He obliged her by pushing his fingers deeper, and then adding a third finger, fucking them in and out of her as he continued to tongue her clit. Soon Don was working his fingers in and out of Liu vigorously and she was shaking and gasping on top of him as a long orgasm wracked her slender body.As she came down, Don slipped his fingers out of her vagina and gave her clit and pussy lips tender kisses. He felt Liu sighing happily, and then she decided to change positions. She pushed herself up so that she was kneeling over him, and quickly moved down, so that she was straddling his pelvis. Don basically lay back and watched as Liu took his rigid cock, wet with her saliva, in her hand, raised it until it was pointing straight up, and then pushed the fat head into her tiny pussy. He reached up and held on to her hips as she slowly sank down on him. Don found himself admiring the muscles of her back as Liu began to move on him. He caressed her lovely ass as she rode slowly up and down on his cock. Once she was comfortable with him in her, Liu began, very slowly, to lean forward, pushing Don's cock “down” further than it was used to. It was uncomfortable at first, and a bit painful for a moment at times, but Liu eventually worked herself down so that her feet were up by Don's shoulders, she was supporting herself with her hands between his legs, and she was leaning low while she worked her body back and forth getting Don's hard shaft to move inside her pussy in an unusual and delightful way. Don was able to squeeze and caress her ass as she rode him. He slowly pushed his thumb into her exposed asshole which made Liu cry out happily.Don was so intent on fucking Liu that he was actually surprised when Amy's face appeared over his. He barely had time to notice that the pretty blonde's face was, as was so often the case, covered with pearly cum before she was kissing him deeply. Don found himself laughing as he returned Amy's enthusiastic, playful, and rather sloppy kiss. When she finally pulled away, Amy said, “Who's your friend, Professor?”“Liu,” he grinned as he wiped his face with his forearm. “Why don't you introduce yourself?”“Good idea!”Looking down over Liu's backside as she continued to writhe back on his cock and thumb, Don watched Amy kneel down in front of Liu and just lean forward and kiss the pretty Chinese girl.Then, as if he'd followed Amy, or been carried along in her sexual wake, Victor came over and knelt down by Amy, who noticed him right away. Don could tell there were introductions made and a brief discussion, but since it all took place down near his feet he couldn't make out any of the details. He later found out that what happened next was all Amy's idea. With Amy's help, Liu pushed herself up, relieving the interesting downward pressure on Don's cock. With a brief, luminous smile over her slender shoulder at him, Liu slowly pushed herself up off Don's thick shaft. Amy's hand wrapped around Don and kept him pointing straight up for Liu. The two girls quickly positioned woman and cock so that Liu could lower herself slowly so that Don pushed up into her exquisitely tight, hot ass.“Oh, that feels so good!” Don heard Liu say.“It sure does!” he agreed as he slipped his hands around her thin waist.Liu leaned back then, and Amy coaxed Don to bring his legs together. Don helped support Liu as Victor straddled Don's legs and pushed his big cock down so the fat head could press against Liu's waiting pussy. Don felt Liu tense as Victor slowly eased his thick organ into her.Amy leaned over Victor's shoulder with a grin and said, “How's that feel, Liu?”“So good!” was the answer.Don felt Liu shuddering as Victor kept filling her with that large prick of his. Liu wrapped her long legs around Victor's hips and her arms around his neck, while Don supported her from below and Victor began to fuck in and out of her, simultaneously working her up and down on Don's cock.It was now Shelonda's turn to make an appearance. She crawled up next to Don, kissed him on the cheek and said, “That looks like fun.”“It is!” he grinned. “I hope you've been having a good time.”“Of course I have,” she smiled. “I can't help but notice you're not really doing any work here, Don.”He laughed and said, “What did you have in mind?”She gave him another quick kiss, this time on the lips, and then promptly moved around to back in and kneel over his face. With practiced ease, Shelonda lowered her pussy down to Don's face. He happily and greedily began to lap at her sweet pussy and clit, careless of the fact that at least one man had obviously come inside her before now. Don focused on giving Shelonda the tongue lashing she so richly deserved while also enjoying the sensations of having his cock inside the tight embrace of Liu's ass while Victor gave her pussy a vigorous fucking. The first one to come was Liu; Don felt her ass clenching on him as she shook and trembled in his grasp. Victor was next; feeling the big cock inside Liu swelling and pumping cum into her pussy was an interesting feeling for Don. By this time, a man had come up in front of Shelonda as she knelt over Don and she was giving him a nice, deep blowjob, but this didn't keep her from having a long, loud orgasm as Don turned his head a bit from side to side and tongued her clit firmly.Shelonda was still squatting over Don's mouth and well on her way to another orgasm, when Victor slowly pulled out of Liu's pussy. A small flood of warm fluid ran down over Don's balls. Don couldn't see what was going on down there, but in only a moment his legs were nudged apart and he felt an undeniably feminine tongue licking and sucking the cum from him and Liu. After several delicious moments, the mouth shifted from Don to Liu.Don was vaguely aware that Shelonda had managed to coax an orgasm from the man in front of her, and then Don succeeded in making her come again with his tongue. As Shelonda carefully extricated herself from the little foursome that had Don and Liu as the nucleus, Liu began to come again, crying out and shaking. Don let her fall back on him as she whimpered with delight.Don had assumed that the woman who had been licking Liu was Amy, so he was surprised to see a new woman kneeling between their legs. This was a beautiful, middle aged black woman with gray eyes and a lovely bald head. She smiled at both Liu and Don and then started to stand up, but Liu stopped her.“Don't go. I need a little break and I can tell Don here isn't ready to stop playing just yet,” Liu said.“Well, OK then,” said the other woman with a warm smile and the barest hint of a Southern accent.Liu managed to gently pull herself off Don's hard cock and then twisted around to kiss him goodbye before crawling out of the action.Soon Don was looking down into the beautiful bald woman's smiling face as he steadily fucked in and out of her pussy. Her pelvis was rolled back and her legs were up, resting on Don's thighs which were spread out. One of her hands squeezed and pinched at her breast while the other reached down to stroke her clit. Don was leaning forward on his outstretched arms.“I really should get your name,” Don said.“I don't see why,” she laughed. “Now shush; I'm about to come.”Don kept going without coming through three more encounters. Liu caught up with him as a cute little blonde, who had just rode him to three intense orgasms as he knelt holding her in his arms, kissed him goodbye and crawled off to find another lover or two. Liu bent down and kissed him, saying, “You don't ever stop, do you?”“Why stop?” he grinned back. “Are you ready for more?”“Uh-hum,” she said. “Do you want me all to yourself or find some more playmates?”As Don pondered this dilemma, he caught sight of Toshia for the first time in about an hour. Off to the side of the orgy, a tall, fit white guy with short brown hair was laying on his back and his head on a thick pillow. His legs were spread so Toshia could lie on her belly between them and, supporting herself on his thighs, give him what looked like an intense blowjob. Her feet were up in the air, which Don thought was just adorable. Don stood up and said, “I definitely want to get you to myself, but let's go play with those two for now.”Hand-in-hand, they crossed to Toshia and the object of her oral attentions. Don gestured Liu to the man on his back, and he knelt down by Toshia and the man's legs. He ran his hand over Toshia's back, and, as he reached her ass, he leaned down and whispered in her ear, “There you are. I hope you've been a very naughty girl.”She took her mouth off what Don now realized was a surprisingly long cock, swallowed, took a breath and said, “I certainly have. We weren't supposed to be keeping count were we?”Don laughed, squeezed her ass, and said, “No, but I want details later.”“Of course! Jimmy here is about as good at eating me out as you are,” Toshia smiled. “I wanted to return the favor.”“Well, don't let me stop you,” Don said. He noticed that Liu, who had started off with kissing Jimmy deeply, was now moving around so she could sit on his face, facing away from Don and Toshia. Don went back to watching Toshia sucking Jimmy's long prick. He was amazed at how good she had gotten at deep-throating. She was quite intent, and seeing her concentrate like that with a nice hard cock sliding in and out of her mouth was amazingly erotic to Don. He thought about going around to stand in front of Liu, but his cock, which had been straining and hard since he had come inside her earlier, wanted more of Toshia. Don moved his hand so his fingers slipped into the crack of her butt. Sure enough, he found slippery wetness all along between her cheeks. He toyed with her anus, and she parted her legs to let him move lower, until this fingers slipped between her lips and into her pussy. Don continued to watch her going down on Jimmy as he pushed his fingers up inside her messy pussy and then his thumb into her ass. Toshia murmured her approval, but kept bobbing her head up and down on Jimmy's cock.Don expected Jimmy to come, and come hard, in short order, but it was Liu who came first. She gasped and shook for a long, intense orgasm and then sagged to the side.“Wow,” Don said, “he is good.”“Told ya,” Toshia said, looking up from the stiff, wet cock in front of her. “Is she a friend of yours?”“Yes!” Don smiled. “Liu, this is Toshia, and Toshia, this is Liu. And, I take it you're Jimmy; I'm Don.”To be continued..By BradentonLarry for Literotica

Rev. Doug Griebenaw, Mission Advocate at KFUO joins the Rev. Dr. Phil Booe to study 1 Corinthians 6:12-20 Corinth was dotted with temples and shrines to many pagan gods and idols, but these all paled in comparison to the temple of Aphrodite, the Greek goddess of love and sexuality. Worship practices around her cult included temple prostitutes. In fact, sexual deviancy was fairly normal for Corinthian society. It is no surprise then that in our text for today, Paul returns yet again to issues of sexual immorality. In this episode, Pastors Booe and Griebenaw work through this text and compare the situation to ours today.

Full Text of ReadingsFeast of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross Lectionary: 638All podcast readings are produced by the USCCB and are from the Catholic Lectionary, based on the New American Bible and approved for use in the United States _______________________________________The Saint of the day is Exaltation of the Holy Crossof the Exaltation of the Holy Cross Early in the fourth century, Saint Helena, mother of the Roman Emperor Constantine, went to Jerusalem in search of the holy places of Christ's life. She razed the second-century Temple of Aphrodite, which tradition held was built over the Savior's tomb, and her son built the Basilica of the Holy Sepulcher on that spot. During the excavation, workers found three crosses. Legend has it that the one on which Jesus died was identified when its touch healed a dying woman. The cross immediately became an object of veneration. At a Good Friday celebration in Jerusalem toward the end of the fourth century, according to an eyewitness, the wood was taken out of its silver container and placed on a table together with the inscription Pilate ordered placed above Jesus' head: Then “all the people pass through one by one; all of them bow down, touching the cross and the inscription, first with their foreheads, then with their eyes; and, after kissing the cross, they move on.” To this day, the Eastern Churches, Catholic and Orthodox alike, celebrate the Exaltation of the Holy Cross on the September anniversary of the basilica's dedication. The feast entered the Western calendar in the seventh century after Emperor Heraclius recovered the cross from the Persians, who had carried it off in 614, 15 years earlier. According to the story, the emperor intended to carry the cross back into Jerusalem himself, but was unable to move forward until he took off his imperial garb and became a barefoot pilgrim. Reflection The cross is today the universal image of Christian belief. Countless generations of artists have turned it into a thing of beauty to be carried in procession or worn as jewelry. To the eyes of the first Christians, it had no beauty. It stood outside too many city walls, decorated only with decaying corpses, as a threat to anyone who defied Rome's authority—including Christians who refused sacrifice to Roman gods. Although believers spoke of the cross as the instrument of salvation, it seldom appeared in Christian art unless disguised as an anchor or the Chi-Rho until after Constantine's edict of toleration.

"Saint Helen, the mother of Saint Constantine the Great, when she was already advanced in years, undertook, in her great piety, the hardships of a journey to Jerusalem in search of the Cross, about the year 325. A temple to Aphrodite had been raised up by the Emperor Hadrian upon Golgotha, to defile and cover with oblivion the place where the saving Passion had been suffered. The venerable Helen had the statue of Aphrodite destroyed, and the earth removed, revealing the Tomb of our Lord, and three crosses. Of these, it was believed that one must be that of our Lord, the other two of the thieves crucified with Him; but Saint Helen was at a loss which one might be the Wood of our salvation. At the inspiration of Saint Macarius, Archbishop of Jerusalem, a lady of Jerusalem, who was already at the point of death from a certain disease, was brought to touch the crosses, and as soon as she came near to the Cross of our Lord, she was made perfectly whole. Consequently, the precious Cross was lifed on high by Archbishop Macarius of Jerusalem; as he stood on the ambo, and when the people beheld it, they cried out, "Lord, have mercy." It should be noted that after its discovery, a portion of the venerable Cross was taken to Constantinople as a blessing. The rest was left in Jerusalem in the magnificent church built by Saint Helen, until the year 614. At that time, the Persians plundered Palestine and took the Cross to their own country (See Jan. 22, Saint Anastasius the Persian). Later, in the year 628, Emperor Heraclius set out on a military campaign, retrieved the Cross, and after bringing it to Constantinople, himself escorted it back to Jerusalem, where he restored it to its place."

Serwa Boateng's Guide to Vampire Hunting by Roseanne A. Brown is officially out in the world! You can read an excerpt on Read Riordan. Pahua and the Soul Stealer by Lori M. Lee is now out in paperback. For better or worse, Aphrodite wrote a guide to love on Read Riordan. Whew, that was fast, but we want to get to the good stuff! D23 and the Percy Jackson teaser trailer (00:04:33) Karen makes a public apology for ever doubting they would release a Percy Jackson and the Olympians teaser trailer. Is it actually surprising we got a teaser trailer this early? We're kind of shocked we've gotten no god casting in the meantime! Karen goes through her experience waiting for the Percy Jackson segment of the D23 Branded Television panel. By the way, American Born Chinese seems like something Percy Jackson fans would enjoy! We discuss the two mini clips we got from the panel's montage intro. That first shot of Percy—where in the story could it be from? Then we definitely got a shot of Sally and Percy out in the rain. Next up, we discuss the concept art for the Hermes Cabin. Is the D23 Disney Branded Television panel online anywhere? If we find it, we'll link to it! Grover is the protector.

Today's mini episode is all about nourishing yourself with love. Why should I… and how do I truly love myself, you ask? Melody Beattie, one of America's most beloved self-help authors beautifully answers that big question in this episode's featured passage from one of her many bestselling books, The Language Of Letting Go. Melody has survived some of the most unthinkably painful experiences that many humans undergo in this lifetime, including addiction, abandonment, sexual abuse, divorce and the death of her own child. Our society places heavy shame on these issues– and all too often it is the victim who bears the blame. We must forgive ourselves over and over again, and stand up for ourselves even when no one does it with us. Melody Beattie's books are powerful resources for dealing with the big human issues of codependency, addiction and grief. Through it all, we must somehow find self-love. As Beattie tells it, “[p]eople who love themselves and hold themselves in high esteem are those who give the most, contribute the most and love the most. How do we love ourselves? By working as hard at liking and loving ourselves as we have at not liking ourselves. Explore what it means to love yourself.” And so, my friends, I invite you to open your heart to these words of wisdom, take a deep breath and step into the lifelong practice of self-love. The BEST way for you to support my show and share these drops of Aphrodite wisdom is by leaving a review (on Apple, Spotify, or wherever you listen to podcasts!) and by sharing & tagging me on Instagram!

Venus demonstrates that looks aren't everything. The planet is named for the Roman goddess of love and beauty — derived from the Greek goddess Aphrodite. And just seeing it in the sky explains why it got that name. It's the brightest object in the night sky other than the Moon. Right now, it's the “morning star” — a light so bright you might not believe it's a planet. Venus shines so brightly because it's close to Earth and the Sun, and because it's covered by an unbroken layer of clouds. As you dive into and below the clouds, though, the planet's image begins to change. The clouds themselves are made mostly of sulfuric acid — not exactly a beauty treatment. And as you drop below the clouds, the atmosphere gets dense, hot, and toxic. At the surface, the temperature is about 865 degrees Fahrenheit — hot enough to melt lead. And that's the temperature around the entire planet, both day and night. The atmosphere is made mainly of carbon dioxide — one reason that it's so hot. As we know from experience here on Earth, CO2 traps heat, making the surface warmer. And the pressure is about 95 times that at Earth's surface — the equivalent of a depth of almost two-thirds of a mile in Earth's oceans. So deep down, Venus is no beauty. Still, the planet is a treat to look at. Right now, it's near the Moon in the dawn twilight. It will stand below the Moon tomorrow, and to the upper right of the Moon on Thursday.  Script by Damond Benningfield   Support McDonald Observatory

In Roman mythology, Venus is regarded as the goddess of beauty, fertility, sex, and love. She is the counterpart of the Greek goddess of love, sex, and beauty, known as the Greek goddess of Aphrodite. However, she has many abilities that are not related to the Greek goddess. In Roman mythology, Venus was created after the blood of her father, Uranus, fell into sea following his castration by his son Saturn.Another theory is that Venus rose from the sea in a clam. This is because the numerous artworks depicting her rising from the sea have made this a popular theory.In the third century BCE, Venus was officially incorporated into the Roman pantheon. During the Punic Wars, she was believed to have helped the Romans by helping them defeat the Carthaginians. Her importance continued to rise until the fourth century CE, when Christianity emerged. During this period, she was regarded as a significant figure of worship.Read more about Venus at https://mythlok.com/venus/
