The world of podcasting is still in its infancy, but it has shown that it is the future of broadcasting. I have also noticed that it is an area of erotica that is mostly unexplored. Reading is fun for many of us, but a lot of people wish to hear the words come to life, so audio and imagery have become extremely popular. That is one of the reasons I started the Erotica Lust podcast.
I realised that some people wish to listen to the author read the story to them while they’re lying or driving. I believe that the future of book publishing is audio, although as an author, I love seeing the spelling of words and sentence structure, so reading will always be my favourite form of book consumption.
That’s just my preference, but I understand that many people prefer audio, which is the reason I read all of the short stories on the Erotica Lust blog and recorded them. I might not have the sexiest voice, but I tried my best to deliver high-quality erotic audio. Every short story on this blog has an audio file at the top of the page so that you can listen to me read the story to you (some of the latest stories don’t have audio yet, but I’m updating the blog regularly, so all stories will have audio soon).
Currently, the podcast receives just over one thousand plays a week, and it’s been running for two months. That’s not bad, but I am looking to grow it, so I post an episode every Saturday and Sunday.
In my efforts to grow it, I’ve teamed up with other erotica podcasts. One of my collaborations was with Mia from Erotic Short Stories and Sensual Roleplays. You can listen to her read my story My Husband Suggested That We Wife Swap below.
My podcast was also ranked number 6 on Feedspot’s 35 Best Erotica Podcasts. https://blog.feedspot.com/erotica_podcasts/
Eventually, I’ll also record my new novel, My Wife and Girlfriend, as audio. That will be professionally done, and I will have actors reading the story with me so that I can bring it to life and make it vivid in the reader’s imagination. Since audiobooks are the future, all of my books will eventually be available in audio format.
