That was… Smut Luton 2015

Smut Luton started for me and Kev the Friday before setting up with the lovely folks from House of Erotica who were our event sponsors and completely and utterly awesome publishers too! The Hat factory was a fabulous location, very atmospheric and we soon had it smutted up and headed to the Easy Hotel to chill out for a bit. I wonder if they knew we were smutty because when we got there we found an MTD on the wall. A Mystery Torture Device.

I mean, what else could it be?

I hung off it for a while,it was pretty comfortable!

There was also a bed in the room, so I didn’t have to hang there all night, I’m sure you’re relieved to know that.

Smut Luton started early but it’s never too early for Smut and bucks fizz. Yep, House of Erotica provided the bubbles, tea and coffee and biscuits that kept the smutters fed and watered throughout the day.

We had one room full of stalls, the Smut tombola had a rest but we had a fabulous haul for the raffle instead from  Cara Sutra, Bondara, Forbidden Obsession, SeGzi, Casa Hari, Nice ‘n’ Naughty, Piatkus Entice, Poison Pixie,Sweetmeats Press and Lily G Blunt .

Our faithful Smut Peddler was back selling lots of sexy smutty books and on top of this we had the ever lovely Cara Sutra selling her sexy wares and House of Erotica selling books and talking to authors about submissions.

Through in the performance area I started the day with a workshop on senses. It involved scents, fruit, blindfolds, I touch myself and several interesting implements!

I think it went very well and I was very impressed by how very good our blindfolded volunteers were at guessing what they were given -down to identifying my tesco clubcard, that’s impressive!

We had 2 reading slams while we were in Luton and the readers were brilliant as always. Such a mix of excerpts and so many of them finishing before time. Though there were some who I’m sure kept on reading just to get spanked *cough* Meg *cough.

Our brave readers were Cara Sutra, Lucy Felthouse, Jennifer Denys, Meg Philip, Charlotte Howard, Bella Settarra, Zak Jane Keir,Charlie J Forrest, Etta Stark, Anna SkyVictoria Blisse , Bawdy Bloke and Helen J Perry . Thanks all for your sexy, smutty words.

There was also an amazing Hoola Hoop performance from the strong, supple and super Helen Orford there were ooohs and aaahs aplenty and then she answered lots of questions from inquisitive smutters. Very cool.

Charlie J Forrest then had his audience tied up in knots, well several of them were quite literally tied up! His session on shibari was well appreciated and I hope he’ll do another session soon!

Zak Jane Keir brought hobbies and pastimes into a whole new light, showing how you can get an erotic story from anything. And this woman’s written about Morris dancers so she’s definitely the expert!

I had a thoroughly lovely day. It’s like the best day’s work ever because although I’m constantly on duty and I’m the woman people ask for directions to the loos and I’m keeping an eye on the time (we ran ahead of time for so long, it was kinda scary. Then Charlie over-ran and I felt better, thanks Charlie!) and making sure that everything and everyone’s where it/they should be at the right time I am smiling like a loon ‘cos I LOVE it. I love you lot too, you smutty smutters you.

So much so that we’re announcing 2 brand new Smut Events. A Taste of Smut on Wednesday 8th April 5-8pm at Bangkok Bar in Manchester  (tickets are just £5!) and Smut Manchester at the same location on the 24th October 10-6. I hope to see you there.
