Thanks for visiting Dubberley.com. This site is designed to help people keep up with my current projects. As a rough background, I’m a sex writer and erotic author, with 25 internationally-published books to date. In 2001, I created the UK’s original erotica website for women, Cliterati.co.uk, which was shortlisted for best sex blog in the Cosmopolitan Blog Awards 2012 and Xcite Book Awards 2013.
When I’m not running Cliterati, writing or being a media spokesperson (with a strong belief in evidence-based sex research), I’m a gardening fan and crafter, science geek and occasional lecturer on topics including networking, media and sexuality. I also help curate Brighton Science Festival which featured a science of sex weekend for the first time this year.
I have just finished editing my latest book, Oral Sex Positions, and am now working on my next title, about female sexual fantasy. To contribute your fantasy/thoughts about fantasy, click here.
My latest published book, Acrobatic Sex Positions is a photographically-illustrated guide featuring 69 sex positions that you’re unlikely to have tried before (NB: Do not buy for anyone with a bad back). The follow up, The Oral Sex Position Guide is out later this year.
I’ve written for most major women’s magazines in the UK, including Cosmopolitan, More and Easy Living; and newspapers ranging from the Daily Star to The Guardian. I’ve also been an agony aunt for titles as diverse as Look and Knave.
I write for websites including TheSite (sex ed features) and Jane magazine (on topics including erotic writing as empowerment and how having my genitals cast for a magazine feature made me reconsider my attitudes to motherhood). I also have a regular column in Erotic Trade Only (the only UK trade title for the erotic industry) writing about the latest toys, sexual health products and general adult trade news.
I have a long history of undertaking live features, ranging from being a stand-up comedian to performing a burlesque routine in front of 500 people; hosting a naked cocktail party to spending a session working with a professional Dominatrix; learning how to be a cowgirl in Texas to doing flying trapeze. Got something daring you want a writer to do? Ask me. I might.
I’ve written numerous sex manuals and erotica titles, including The Field Guide to Fucking (download a free sample here and order a copy here), Friendly Fetish: The Beginner’s Guide to Kink and Ultimate Burlesque (an erotica anthology created to raise funds for Macmillan Cancer Support as part of Burlesque Against Breast Cancer, an organisation which has so far raised over £10K for the charity) I’ve sold around a million books to date. My latest erotic anthology Sexperimental is currently available as a free ebook if you want to peruse some free smut.
Copywriting and Marketing
I regularly write copy for web, print and radio and have worked for brands including Mars, NatWest and Diageo. As an ex Marketing Manager, with over a decade’s experience, I can offer anything from a single press release to a complete creative campaign, working both alone and with talented senior level freelance marketeers, designers, illustrators and photographers.
I am also available as a spokesperson about sex, relationships and social psychology in general, and have worked on this basis with clients including Nandos, Virgin and Philips. This can include radio interviews, articles for syndication, quotes for press releases and more in-depth involvement in campaigns.
I only work with brands I believe in, as I believe endorsement should have integrity. However, I will always consider a product fairly and give honest – confidential – feedback if I don’t believe it is something that I could endorse.
I’ve appeared a ‘sexpert’ on TV shows for all the UK terrestrial channels along with numerous cable channels in the UK and internationally. The image above was taken when I appeared on This Morning in July 2012, defending erotica from Samantha Brick, who thinks Fifty Shades of Grey is disgusting porn (I won, 87% to 13%, focusing on education and sexual health benefits). Find out more or watch the video here.
I offer sexuality and seduction classes for individuals and groups of up to 12 women (including hen parties) on topics ranging from the beginner’s guide to toys to introducing kink into your relationship. Classes are tailored to suit the audience, and other topics may be requested in advance. All sessions also include a Q&A session.
Fun and Games
I have a hobby site at Groweatgift.com: a guide to urban gardening and crafting. It’s primarily active through Pinterest at the moment as it’s been a lousy year for gardening. I also put on occasional events under the Forest of Thoughts umbrella, for organisations including Brighton Science Festival, Playgroup Festival,White Night and Latitude Festival (as part of the wonderful Alternative Village Fete)
