Passion Undiminished, by Shaun Putaine, is a well written story of a man and woman tentatively moving in the direction of a dominant/submissive relationship. The strength of this work is an emphasis on the psycho-sexual tension and difficulties in negotiating this not always smooth connection. This is a romantic as well as a sexy story, with a goodly mix of vanilla as well as BDSM activity. The book is well narrated by William Sullivent, whose attractive voice, I thought, well matched how I imagined that of Tom the protagonist and narrator.
A phallogyne is basically a woman with a penis. This is a catch-all category that includes (but is not limited to) futanari, “shemales,” and transwomen who have had genital reassignment surgery. “Phallogyne” can refer to any person who has basically a woman’s body but also has a penis. How she got the penis (naturally, surgically, by magical transformation, etc.) does not affect her status as a phallogyne. Whether there are testicles or not does not change the fact the person is a phallogyne, and whether she has a vagina or not in addition to the penis does not change her status as a phallogyne. Defining the term as widely as possible, “phallogyne” might also include male to female transvestites.
“Phallogyne” is not as specific a word as some of those used above, but that in many contexts makes it more useful. Also, some words like “shemale” have offensive overtones. “Futa” is also problematic because the futa in a sense seems by now almost to be by definition a kind of sex object. “Futa” connotes someone who has virtually no humanity beyond the purely sexual dimension. “Phallogyne,” on the other hand, does not imply that if one is a phallogyne one is nothing but a phallogyne and has no real self or identity beyond that.
Personally, I prefer to use the word “phallogyne” in reference to my own work, because it tends to be more accurate and because it is bereft of the negative connotations of some of the other words used. For an erotica writer, however, this creates a marketing problem. “Phallogyne” is gradually becoming known as a term, but is not yet known widely enough that one can market fiction effectively with it.
The 21st annual, 2017 Independent Publisher Book Awards contest results are out, and the Silver Medal for Erotica goes to the anthology you see to your left (and which features my “A Cooking Egg,” a kinky little encounter between two women, one of whom is a leather clad chauffeuse)

WHAT IS SMUTPUNK, YOU ASK?
Moctezuma Johnson, Heresiarch and Porn Potentate of the genre, replies:
“Smutpunk is Erotica with plot that mixes forms from such varied sources as magic realism, science fiction, and Asian Kung Fu movies. In the same way most other punks use some common element to glue them together, Smutpunk uses the most basic protein of all to create its own panspermia universe, mixing pop-culture, Erotica, the Cthulhu mythos, Far East legends, and Non-Western spirituality with Science Fiction, Pulp, and Silver-Age-Comic era elements into a head spinning, ball-busting good time.”
And yes, yours truly, Roxy Katt has her own ZEPPELIN RAIDER: A FUTA STEAMPUNK TALE in the mix. See also DRIVING STICK: A RUBBER-SUITED FUTA TALE with all her trademark humiliation (in SMUTPUNK EROTICA COLLAB).

Action, action, and more action. If you want non-stop, slap-dash mega-fuckery, this is your girl (as the cabbie says to Humphrey Bogart in THE BIG SLEEP, which is anything but sleepy). I don’t think I’ve ever encountered anything quite like this for non-stop sex, and penned with the lightest and fastest of pens (and sometimes a pen is not a cigar). One of my biggest peeves with porn is non-stop sex that makes you want it to stop because it’s just so much insert-tab-A-into-slot-B and so on. But Moctezuma has written here something way beyond your average pedantic sex fantasy of tabs and slots. Given the sheer volume of carnal interconnection in all its manifestations there is a singular lack of cliché here. What inhabits the text is a lightness and speed that is truly refreshing. His descriptive art never sags (literally or figuratively) as he pens a mad chaos of unrelenting, untiring coital mayhem. Highly recommended.
