Some weeks Sensual gets a lot of essay submissions. Some weeks the vibe leans more towards erotica. This week was one for poetry, with a wide variety of writers, topics, and styles. One newer writer said she had heard that Sensual was the best place to publish erotic poetry. We’re honored if that is indeed the case.

Of course, as usual, we’ve got all the good stuff you want to read. Below we’ve highlighted some of our favorite Sensual offerings that came in during the past 7 days but don’t forget to check out the rest of our recent offerings here.

The featured writer this week is Aaron Quist, who has been a long-time contributor to Sensual (even before that was our publication name). His poetry often explores the places where love and lust intersect. Here are links to a few of Aaron’s recent poems.

Giving In

In our essays this week, one story spawned a conversation that led to another story on the same topic, but with a slightly different angle. This is exactly the kind of dialogue and community that we are seeking to create.
