Even Curmudgeons With Dead Libidos Love Erotica

The Naughty Netherworld blog has been seeing a lot of action this month between the A to Z blogging challenge and the usual Weekend Writing Warriors posts. But for anyone who has ever (or still does) written fan fiction, erotica, or erotic fan fiction, I think you'll get a kick out of this piece!
I'm 54 and done with sex. I have the libido of roadkill and I don't want it back. However, I am the editor and one of the collaborators for some truly filthy Kindle smut involving such things as shapeshifting aliens, vampires, werewolves, and kick-ass female gargoyles. It's over the top and it's a lot of fun to write. If it ever ends up making any money, that's icing on the cake.
True confession: My first erotic fan fictions were bad self-insert jobs involving a 25-ish year old Mary Sue version of me who had perfect blonde hair, blue eyes with long lashes, and, of course, a stereotypical hourglass figure. How could Mr. Spock resist such a glamour queen? 
Later, my Mary Sue hooked up with Joe Hardy (as played by Shaun Cassidy on the 1977 Hardy Boys TV show). By the time I moved on to Bon Scott, I ditched Mary Sue for a more realistic yet older and far less awkward version of me. Also, I was pretty sure I was going to hell in a ham biskit for the thoughts I was having about the man, but I couldn't help myself.
These days, if Bon were suddenly to be returned to the land of the living, I'd be asking him if he'd rather have a nice cup of coffee or tea and imploring him to forgive the ghastly mess that is my work area. He'd probably have to get a hotel room to spend the night in, though, because the couch is my bed.
Oh, how the mighty (or maybe just the lonely and horny) have fallen!
