About eight months ago, I was standing in Primark, looking at a really nice leather-look dress. The first thought that crossed my mind was: “Ooh, that would be nice for Eroticon 2015… ah, but that’s eons away though.”
Eight months go by quite fast though – eons away has now turned into next fucking week, OH MY GOD. And this is me doing the now traditional Eroticon meet and greet questionnaire, put together this year by Molly “Molly’s Daily Kiss” Moore.
If you’re new to Eroticon, this is just a little way of introducing yourself to the other delegates and speakers before meeting each other in real life. That way, putting a face to the name will be easy peasy.
NAME (and Twitter name if you have one)
Jillian Boyd, found at @JillyBoyd on the Twitters. I answer to Jillian, Jilly and OI, BOYD!
Is this your first time at Eroticon? If yes, what is your favourite memory from a previous Eroticon and if no, what are you most looking forward to at Eroticon 2015?
This will be my fourth time at Eroticon, actually. Like Molly mentioned in her answers, I have a few favourite memories: meeting Lady Pandorah for the first time at the first edition, dinner with her, Blacksilk, ILB and Emma Whispers at the 2013 edition, getting to meet Rachel Kramer Bussel at Eroticon 2013 (and, for that matter, still being in touch with her to this day), Judith and Mirren’s session at last year’s Eroticon, meeting Exhibit A and Girl on the Net last year… the list is quite long.
Having said that, one memory that stands out is the hen party staying at our hotel last year – when asked by them why we were here, ILB told them point blank that we were sex writers here for a conference and they didn’t believe him. It was kind of hilarious. I am kind of hoping something simliar happens at Eroticon 2015, just for the lolz.
Which 3 sessions have you already earmarked as definitely going to?
Girl on the Net’s session, Zak Jane Keir’s session and Janine Ashbless’s session.
What drink will you be ordering at the bar on the Saturday night?
That’s a good question, considering I don’t drink alcohol. Diet Pepsi or a lemonade, probably.
If you wrote an autobiography what would it be called?
The Life and Loves of an Accidental, Accented, Accident-Prone Londoner.
Where are you writing this post and what 5 things can you see around you (not including the device you are writing on)?
I’m writing this post from our bedroom, and five things I can see around me are a bag of roast beef Monster Munch, several balls of yarn, a guitar in a case, my bath robe and my mobile phone
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?
Oh, see, that’s hard. That’s really hard. I’m going to start by saying ILB would of course be a given at any time, and that if I could, I would definitely be up for a repeat of our bloggers dinner at Eroticon 2013 (me, ILB, Lady Pandorah, Blacksilk and Emma).
Right. If we’re talking about bloggers – Horny Geek Girl, Charlie Powell (who is also a pretty fucking talented erotica writer), Exhibit A (same goes for him), Anna Sky (and same again, here) and Girl on the Net.
You can check out who else is coming through Molly’s handy link page. The countdown has firmly begun, I should think. See you all at Eroticon 2015!
