    I have just watched an interview on montreal tv (canada) TV 5 I really appreciated your way of thinking and the way you say it
    Al my respect Luc

  2. Thanks very much, Luc. That documentary was great fun to make – and the presenter, Philippe, managed to charm every woman he encountered in a wonderfully inadvertent way

    I don’t know if this is the right place to say this, but as I have no access to the one-on-one contact options (i.e. I don’t have a Facebook or Twitter), I’m doing it here. Apologies if it’s the wrong place for it.

    I just finished The Field Guide to F*cking and loved it. It was funny and informative without being on-high self-helpish or condescending. I cannot wait to go forth and put the newly acquired knowledge to use with my boyfriend. Thank you for writing it.

    I was interested in some of the supplementary materials mentioned throughout the book, but cannot find them online. I was curious as to whether or not these are real works that I could read, or clever jokes that passed over my head in my quest for ways to further expand my field work. Not seeing the forest for the trees and whatnot.

    Thank you again Ms. Dubberley for an enlightening and entertaining book.

  4. Thanks so much, Jillian – I really appreciate it. I loved writing The Field Guide to F*cking – it gave me a chance to cover lots of the things I’ve wanted to talk about for years. So glad you found it useful, and I hope that you and your partner reap the rewards.

    Re: resources, there’s a mixture of spoof academic studies and genuine ones in the book. As a guide, if I give actual statistics/dated credits, it’s real science. If not, check the name of the report author that I cite – they’ve generally got a cheesy pun of some description if they’re invented to make them more obvious (eg, Dr Honor Bound). ‘200 women and Every One Different: Why Men are Screwed’ is a fictitious report, as is ‘Harder, Faster, Deeper, Ouch!, A Qualitative Analysis of Maximum Penetration’.

    Feel free to mail me/leave a further comment if you want to query any specific pieces of research that I cite and thanks again for your kind words. You made my day. I hope your field work is deeply rewarding.

      Yay! Thank you so much for your most lovely reply. Sadly, the titles that interested me the most are more than likely the faux academic papers (Short Skirts and Low-Cut Tops as a Predictor of Mating Success, Tits First, I’m No Whore! A Sexual Approach Analysis, Me Stud, You Slut: Neanderthal Sexual Attitudes Explored). I do wish that they were real however; the titles alone would ensure entertaining and edifying reading.

    Good afternoon, I used to write cliterature for the new defunct Scarlet forums and want to write for Cliterati, but there is no clear way of making a submission. I have an idea for several stories involving what is called a MILF who has a wide variety of sexual tastes from mild BDSM to fetish and vanilla and who has an open sex life. Any ideas on how to contribute as writing cliterature for Scarlet used to help relieve a period of chronic stress in my life and I really enjoyed writing and most of the Scarlet readers approved.

  6. Hello, Glenn – great to hear from you. Post your story as a comment here http://www.cliterati.co.uk/2012/07/erotic-writing-tips-the-pen-is-mightier-than-the-sword/ (under the writing guidelines article – similar to Scarlet’s but updated so worth a read) Can you use wordpress? If so, I’ll add you as a contributor so you can submit stories directly in wordpress. Love the idea btw. Welcome to The Cliterati

    Thankyou, Emily, should the weather be dreadful next week, I shall be dreaming up a story. Still an absolute shame that Scarlet folded, this really was an attempt to beat Cosmopolitan, which had become stale, and to move women’s magazines away from the usual reality show/ Jordan/ X Factor nonsense many of them rely on.
