To celebrate our 2nd birthday, For The Girls conducted an
erotic fiction competition. Our aim was to uncover the ultimate
example of sexy writing created expressly for women.
We had a huge
response, with nearly 100 stories submitted and 81 stories
being eligible for judging. Reading through them all was
quite an experience. There were a huge range of sexual scenarios
and viewpoints on offer. Some stories were merely blow-by-blow
descriptions of intercourse while others were more interested
in exploring the emotional and psychological aspects of
sex. There were some ultra-romantic Fabio-type trysts and
some out-and-out dirty encounters. There were a few absolutely
fabulous stories that we were unable to accept because they
contained violence or issues of non-consent.
While the quality of the stories submitted did vary greatly,
we did end up with more winning stories than we had prizes.
So choosing our winners and honorable mention stories proved
to be quite difficult and our final list of winners was
compiled after much discussion. We've also decided to give
every winning entry a full month's membership to For The
paid attention to the following when reading an entry: characterisation,
setting, good sex and of course, the necessary female orgasm.
Writing technique, spelling, grammar and phrasing were important,
as was the ability of the writer to follow our rules.
In the end
we chose the following fabulous stories. Congratulations
to the winners!
Loving Ben by D.R.
Judge's comments: This story had me completely enthralled
by the second paragraph. This is a very, very sexy piece
of erotic fiction full of longing, secret looks and hot,
it's fabulous. It also has a good dose of
reality about it. This story is about women in long term
relationships, about the need for fantasy, about lost opportunities.
This story gave me an ache of emotion deep in my belly AND
it really turned me on.

Her Fantasy by Gwen Masters
Judge's comments: What a hot story! There's a real
tension between these characters, genuine lust and feeling
for each other. The buildup is glorious, the dialogue is
superbly erotic and I like the way the author has explored
the ideas of feelings and possible actions within the framework
of a fantasy. The sex is also extremely hot. A great story.

The Secret of Bread by Rebecca McIntyre
Judge's comments: Who'd have thought that bread and
flour could be so sexy? This story is fab. The main character
is intelligent and believable. She goes on a sexual journey,
and she finds herself in the end, stronger and happier.
I like that she acknowledges the adultery; this is a story
with consequences. The sex is a little rushed, but then
again that's the nature of the encounter. All in all, a
very enjoyable read.

We're happy to award Honorable Mention prizes to the following
stories, which were all very impressive.
Afternoon by Julia Rebecca
Judge's comments: This story brought a goofy smile
to my face. It's a sweet premise, and nice to see older
people depicted in an erotic story. My only complaint is
that after the surprise is revealed the story keeps going,
and it's almost an anticlimax in a way. That aside, it has
a good buildup and a sexy atmosphere, even if the sex is
relatively tame. I like this one.
Reception by Jan Darby
Judge's comments: Phew. A very sexy story. It offers
the thrill of being watched mixed with the recognition of
what it's like to have bad sex. Great female perspective.
The ending is unfortunately a little rushed, but beyond
that it's great.
Wanted by Connie Lawrence
Judge's comments: This story is a glorious glimpse
into the realm of sexual possibility and the sexiness of
ideas. It's extremely erotic, with a lovely ending. The
author's quest to depict some of the psychological aspects
of this encounter can occasionally be confusing, but overall
it's a very sexy story.
To... by Savannah Jordan
Judge's comments: This story has a distinct romance
novel feel to it, so it's slightly melodramatic but still
very enjoyable. Nice twist at the end. The sex is kind of
vanilla but it fits the tone of the piece.
Initiation by Hannah Moure
Judge's comments: This story offers a wonderful panorama
of the average hetero woman's lesbian seduction fantasy.
Nice character interaction, erotic dialogue and some very
hot sex. The scenario is easy to believe and realistic.
Occasional bad phrasing detracts but it's still a great
piece of writing.
A Tale by JD Sampson
Judge's comments: This is a fun story, with a wonderful
sense of humor; I laughed out loud in places. Not many erotic
stories embrace a sense of the absurd. Nice to see a bit
of fantasy involved as well. It's different, and it's very
Guaranteed by Kristina Wright
Judge's comments: Spicy sex toy fantasy with a good
sense of humour. Well written with a likeable male character
and a realistic lead female character. The scenario is very
erotic, and it's good to see the focus entirely on the woman's
OFF Club by Veronica Ash
Judge's comments: This story offers a very original
and appealing idea, and explores it with gusto. The scenario
is well thought out and the sex is erotic. There's some
clumsy phrasing here and there but overall it's a great
of Imagination by BJ Franklin
Judge's comments: A lovely stroll through the fantasies
of another woman as she masturbates. The intimate first
person narrative gives the reader a feeling of comfort and
there's an everywoman quality about her fantasies that means
the situation is probably familiar to ever woman who reads
this. Great sex scenes too.
Muse by Gwen Masters
Judge's comments: Nice piece of work. It's good to
see a story where there's a solid relationship behind the
sex. This is also very realistic sex
there's impatience, there's stained carpet. I quite like
the postmodernist twist of a story within a story as well.
Overall, a great piece.

THE GIRLS SPECIAL PRIZE
This story stood out from the rest because it smilingly
encapsulates everything we try to offer here at For The
Girls. Unfortunately it doesn't quite qualify as an entry
in our competition because there's no obvious female orgasm,
but we liked it so much we wanted to give the author a special
Want by Mary M.

all that we want to say. It has a good sense of humour and
suggests a great deal.

authors who submitted their entries to the competition and
who helped make it such a success.
