The contest is open and ready for action!
We are back and looking forward to seeing more from all the talented authors here at WDC! For the next several months this will be run as a monthly prompt due to my own time limitations but whenever possible I will run "flash" contests with a much shorter duration so watch for those!
Thank you for stopping by Sensual Moments contest page, brought to you by the "Sensual Infusion" group. We hope you'll enjoy your stay!
The purpose of this contest is to showcase your talent as an author of erotica.
Each submitted piece should therefore display both erotic and literary skills.
The goal is to support the erotica genre as well as the entire WDC community at large with showcasing quality erotica stories and poems by our many talented authors and poets.

Rounds 9 & 10 Details Below!
This will be my final challenge round of the year. I'm going to be taking a break from Sensual Moments while I focus on some things that require my attention in my personal life. Fall is my favorite season and so I'd like to issue the following challenge - this will be a two month round with a new prompt each for October and November. Aside from sticking to the individual round prompts, one of the two entries must be a newly created piece and at least one character must be featured in both entries. You must entry pieces into both rounds to win. Winners will be judged in December on both entries. The winner will receive 25,000 GP and a special bonus from me. We must have three entrants to announce a winner. Here are the individual prompts:
October: Fall Words - please make sure to use all the words and highlight them in bold. Your Words: red, crisp, thunder, cider, harvest, moon, creep, anxious. Deadline Oct 31st
November: Descriptive Desire: Take a moment to read the following excerpt by one of my favorite authors...He is describing a woman that he desires. I have always loved the way he conveys that desire with words, painting a picture of her for the rest of the world to see, to want...
"To him she seemed so beautiful, so seductive, so different from ordinary people, that he could not understand why no one was as disturbed as he by the clicking of her heels on the paving stones, why no one else's heart was wild with the breeze stirred by the sighs of her veils, why everyone did not go mad with the movements of her braid, the flight of her hands, the gold of her laughter. He had not missed a single one of her gestures, not one of the indications of her character, but he did not dare approach her for fear of destroying the spell.”
― Gabriel García Márquez, Love in the Time of Cholera
Now its your turn - In your piece please describe for me and individual who is desired in such a way. Paint me a sensual picture and let the world in on what about them is seductive. Deadline Nov 30th.
Any questions on this round, please message me. Thanks!
