The best ones are where you are really in love, or you get a secret valentine.
It’s a childhood thing for Americans — a holiday that most of us love, because of its innocence. And the chocolate, and the flowers, and, well — you know.
So, when I was writing all that literary erotica I did, I picked this nom de plume for a reason. There weren’t any stories that had love in them on that writer’s critique list. I thought that was really sad. I did. It is an old-fashioned thing I expect. LOVE!
So love, well?
Valentine’s Day can encompass all of them.
Anyway, Eros is the field of the writer of erotica proper. I wrote hetero because I am, and I tried to capture different elements of Eros and what that looks and feels like in my stories.
So I decided to give you a link into one of my stories, just for this day!
My editor Susannah had a contest going on when I wrote this one — we had to include harbor lights, spider fingers and something else — I have forgotten, but I wrote Velvet Valentine as a very innocent silly date story, about falling in love. It’s over at Cleansheets.com at this link, and it features my characters The Velvet Babe and Mr. Swankypants.
Mr. Swankypants is a romantic date! He really is.
So anyway, doing research into robotics, robots and sex is like sad to me? Really.
In fact? Choosing a robot? Shows me the loneliness in culture?
It occurs to me that many men might not know how to go on a date for Valentines Day? Especially after watching some of the videos. I read this yesterday about the pillow?
So, what this video is about is wanting love. You can look at the list above for the different kinds, but it seems to me that this living breathing “form” can be replaced by an actual person. A human. A human Valentine.
Here is where cupid comes in for Valentine’s Day. Cupid is a force of nature, like a little trickster? Cupid makes people fall in love by shooting his little bow and arrow metaphorically. The way to give someone a special little cupidy valentine is to make one yourself!
A surprise works best.
Make a card yourself, out of paper hearts and find a little poem to put inside it — or write one yourself!
We used to use paper doilies like the picture you see above to make them.
Leave that like a surprise for someone that you like, that is human!
I’m going to do a pastel drawing of a valentine heart, for tomorrow — and put it up in here….
Oh and, if you are the dude who wrote The Singularity? Well, look at what you have created in terms of that video above.
Humans? We say no thank you to this kind of a future. It’s not human. It’s way too lonely, no?
