NAME (and Twitter name if you have one)
Charlie Powell, and on Twitter, @sexblogofsorts.
Is this your first time at Eroticon? If No, what is your favourite memory from a previous Eroticon and if Yes, what are you most looking forward to at Eroticon 2015?
Ah, so I was actually going to lead with this, but I’ll answer the question here, instead. No; 2014 was my first time and to say that anxiety got the better of me would be putting it mildly. I had a Sunday only ticket last year, but I only made it to Kristina Lloyd’s session, and then had to be almost physically dragged back by her to the readings and afternoon tea. At one point, away from the conference, I pretty much downed a glass of warm wine to try and get my nerves under control. I spoke to very few people, don’t think I really introduced myself to any, and so, yeah, hopefully this year will be better. Please be gentle with me, and if I run away, it’s almost certainly me, not you…
Which 3 sessions have you already earmarked as definitely going to?
There’s a definite theme coming through in my choices, the top two of which are Remittance Girl‘s Writing Jouissance: Pleasure, Pain and Madness and Stella Ottewill‘s On Edge: Writing the dark side of eroticism. Molly‘s photography session also features high on my list.
What drink will you be ordering at the bar on the Saturday night?
The Saturday night drinks is the one thing I’m not currently planning to attend, as I think I might need some down time by that point. If I’m not there, you may find me wallowing in your bath tub, should you be lucky enough to have one. If I am there, Sauvignon Blanc, please.
If you wrote an autobiography what would it be called?
Er, I think maybe I already have one.
Where are you writing this post and what 5 things can you see around you (not including the device you are writing on)?
Currently my living space has begun to resemble my old student room from my uni days. The clutter includes drying laundry, a half-drunk bottle of white wine, some chocolate chip brioche, a large pack of Duracell AA batteries and the latest Judy Blume novel.
And the last one… If you could go out to dinner with any 5 sex bloggers or erotic writers, regardless of whether they are coming to Eroticon or not who would they be?
Meeting Girlonthenet is something I’m really looking forward to, since she was kind enough to host a guest post for me when I first started blogging. Aside from that, I don’t like having favourites, so I’ll stick with my other 4 (non-erotic) fantasy dinner guests: Gary Barlow, Jarvis Cocker, Nigella Lawson and Max Irons (sorry, GOTN!)
