The Unquenchable Lust: Nymphomania, Love, and the Power of the Sensual Muse

For some erotic souls, the quest for sexual release is a compulsion. The power of sensation achieved through touch, taste, visual stimulation, penetration, and orgasm is so consuming that its attainment becomes a quasi-religious experience, and one that is sought time and again, with an urgent need and an insatiable desire.

Such compulsion is labelled with the highly gendered term nymphomania (as H.H. notes in Match, Cinder and Spark: Volume I – Nymphomania and the Single Girl, sexual compulsivity and sex addiction in men are, by contrast, described in terms such as “Don Juanism” and “satyrism”). As outlined by Ellis and Sagarin (1964), nymphomania is characterised by an intense desire “which is not relieved by intercourse or orgasm and which may drive [the nymphomaniac] to near-madness”.

Lola Down is a self-proclaimed nymphomaniac, and in “Match, Cinder and Spark”, and at the blogsite My Sex Life With Lola, Lola and H.H relate the experience of a life lived alongside insatiable lust, sexual adventurism, and erotic yearning. Lola is H’s muse, his sexy Melete, who inspires him to contemplate the very nature of human sexuality, sensualism and erotic love in his writing. Thus, Match Cinder and Spark is a unique work of erotica; insightful and educational as well as arousing.

I have recently had the great pleasure of narrating and producing the audiobook version of Match Cinder and Spark (now available at amazon audible USA / UK), and was struck at how stimulating the work is, not just erotically, but intellectually as well. The sensuality of Lola is described in such luscious terms that her eroticism practically oozes out of every word. And H’s sage meditations on the nature of sex, lust and insatiable need are intelligent, thoughtful and insightful. It is not often that a work of highly arousing erotica name-checks the likes of Aristotle, Freud, Nietzsche, Kant, and the Hindu Vedas, but Match, Cinder and Spark does so with such ease and flow that the entire book sparkles and stimulates the brain as well as the body.

I heartily recommend this erotic “roman Γ  clef”. It’s sexy and dirty in the most delicious of ways, sweet and romantic in others; witty and humorous; astute and sagacious; hot and illicit. Get it now from Amazon Audible, and be bewitched by Lola Down. H.H is, I have been, and I predict that you will soon be, too.

With huge thanks to Lola Down and H.H for inviting me to voice the book, and for all their support, kindness and encouragement.
