Announcing… the Best of Leslita!

We happy few who take pleasure in edgy lesbian erotica suffered an enormous loss a few months ago when the Story Friends Board was shut down due to a lack of funds to keep it alive and active. That loss is what prompted Cheryl, Naughty Mommy, and myself to set up the Readers Forum at this site — to give our regular visitors a place to congregate and network, as well as exchange ideas.

Not long afterward, another unfortunate setback loomed before us. It was announced that the Lesbian Lolita site, usually referred to by its original name of Leslita, was soon to be taken down as well — in this case due to reasons of health. Naturally, its many loyal readers were stunned and saddened.

It’s difficult to overestimate the importance of Leslita to those of us who have been regular readers and contributors. I posted my very first erotic story there nearly eight years ago and immediately felt a part of something special. Through the years, many of us have made connections and forged friendships at LL that endure to this day, not to mention taken pleasure in its hundreds (thousands, even) of sexy stories!

Naughty Mommy, Cheryl, and I wholeheartedly agree that Juicy Secrets would never, could never have existed without the trailblazing efforts of Leslita, all made possible by ‘C’, the administrator who started and maintained it for over a decade, and whose health problems made it necessary for her to bow out of the day-to-day trials of running a website for free. We honor her hard work and generosity, and send best wishes for a speedy recovery.

Upon learning that Leslita was soon to close, my partners and I speculated on what was to become of the many, many stories to be found there. Between us, the idea of trying to salvage the best of these was floated… and in the end, the three of us decided that we were just crazy enough to tackle such a project. To that purpose, the Juicy Secrets Archive was established.

We quickly fell into a useful division of labor: I researched and posted stories, Cheryl proofed and tidied them up, and Naughty Mommy made them look beautiful on the screen. For the next couple of months, we frantically gathered as many favorites as we could carry, posting at least a couple every day, trying to get the best of the best for Juicy Secrets before Leslita was to be closed. (Eternal gratitude to ‘C’, for kindly giving us extra time to accomplish the task.)

Then, while in the midst of reading, posting, editing and formatting stories, we got a great piece of news — Juicy Secrets friend Jenny had offered to take over as administrator of Leslita and keep the site going. ‘C’ handed her the wheel, and a precious resource for lesbian erotica was thereby saved. We salute Jenny with all six hands, and wish her a fulfilling tenure as captain of a very special ship.

Which led my partners and me to an especially relevant question: since Leslita was still alive and well, should we take down the page?

In the end, our decision was to keep the Archive up and active, but clearly a name change was needed. Henceforth, this corner of our humble abode shall be known as Best of Leslita.

We’ll occasionally add a vintage story or two to the page as we stumble upon them — but nothing especially new, so as to give Jenny and Leslita exclusive possession of recently-posted stories for at least a year, usually more.  Our goal is to shine the spotlight on lesser-known but very deserving tales from the site. Naughty Mommy, Cheryl, and I hope that these will give you a great deal of pleasure — and encourage you to fully explore the breadth and length of Leslita for yourselves. It’s a mind-blowing ride.

In conclusion, we renew our fervent thanks to ‘C’, for striking the match… to Jenny, for taking up the torch… and to you, dear readers, for all the love and support you give to both sites.

NOTE: Comments below, up until the end of August 2015, were posted to an earlier version of this article before the update was made. Comments from September 10 forward were made to the current version of this article.

    I hope my two stories make the cut. 🙂

  2. ThylaneLover says:

    Have you three thought about just taking over the site? I’m not super technically savvy, but it would seem to me that all it would take, since it’s hosted by asstr and not maintained on a private server owned by “C”, that she could give you the info needed to be the operator of the site.

    It would be a lot less daunting than trying to peruse through every story on the site, then edit those stories as well.

    The same could be done with SFB. In the case of that site, all it would take is Admin privileges and being able to pay the monthly fee. It’s my understanding that it’s not that expensive.

  3. First and foremost, I wish ‘C’ the best health possible and give heartfelt thanks for all their work running Leslita for so long. It’s been an important part of my secret life for years.

    Is she planning to deactivate the site entirely and delete the stories, or simply cease updating it? It’s worth noting that even in the former case nothing will be lost, because will have the entirety of it although that exposes you to third-party tracking. I really hope it’s the latter though.

  4. Meneth says:

    I’ve downloaded the entire site, by using a web-scraper. If/when the hosting finally goes down, I plan to pack it up and release it via BitTorrent. Current size is about 120 MB, uncompressed, or 24 MB compressed. That’s real tiny in today’s world. 🙂

  5. JetBoy says:

    That’s good news, Meneth! I’m quickly realizing that trawling through so many stories is a Herculean task that leaves me with throbbing eyeballs and an aching wrist. (From working the mouse, ya dirty-minded sods.) The option of picking and choosing in a more leisurely fashion appeals to me in a big way. I’m sure my partners will agree.

  6. PoppaBear says:

    Thank you, Meneth. There is an Irish “thank you” which I shall adapt to avoid the gender specific, “You are a gentleperson and a scholar”.

  7. PoppaBear says:

    Thanks, JetBoy, for all your hard work on archiving the best of LL for us on this site.
    I was wondering if authors could have a hot button on their names so that we could immediately go to their part of the archive.
    I was looking for Eloquent Delinquent’s work and it took me longer than I wanted, but I made it. A button would have been a great help.
    On the subject of other authors’ stories is there any chance of adding ED’s Honey Loving to the archive? I thought that was a real tour de force.

  8. JetBoy says:

    The hot button is an intriguing notion. Thing is, it would only be of genuine use to locate authors who are both in the Archive and in Other Authors, and I think Eloquent Delinquent is the only author thus far to qualify.

  9. PoppaBear says:

    I take your point, JetBoy, and I noticed your other statement about the hiatus and the advantage, for you, and then us, that you’ll get work done on your own stories.

    Susie’s Diary is very good and I look forward to more entries from Susie’s early diaries.

  10. Polarisgirl (Pam) says:

    Thank you so much for this update. Leslita has been my ‘go to’ site for many years and I will be really bummed to see it go. It truly was a trail blazer and for that, my partner and I are grateful (our little one too). Thanks for what you are doing with Juicy Secrets, and many thanks for trying to salvage Leslita.

  11. Lily says:

    I’d like to thank everyone who’s working on this too. Like Pam said, it’s been my go-to site for a long time, and I’ve found some really awesome writers on there.

  12. Quiller Fan says:

    You should make sure that the three part series, “Emma Goes To Work” by PensiveWriterType, is saved forever. One of the hottest stories I have ever read. Another favorite is the seven part series “Kimmie’s Family” by GladysStoatpamphlet. I enjoy stories with a lot of hot dialogue as opposed to those that rely solely on narration.

  13. CaptainMidnight says:

    I hope you are able to put some true-love stories on the site, where we can see the characters grow up still in love and able to marry and start their own lives together, the way some of the authors have done.

    I was always extremely concerned about stories where one of the characters is married to a man who loves her, figuring his heartbreak would be even worse when he learned she is lesbian and can’t love him like he (and often she) thought. I don’t know how many lesbian women (or gay men) marry hetero partners for love rather than family pressure or pressure inside themselves to prove they aren’t gay. Maybe they do it for both reasons at once. I want the other spouse to realize he/she may have done nothing wrong. I still love both my ex-girlfriends and wish wholeheartedly things could have worked out between us, but I’m not to blame when it didn’t.

    In 1997, when Ellen DeGeneres and her same-named sitcom character came out to the public, I was attending a Baptist church which had seemed OK to me. Small Sunday school classes, traditional worship services, everybody knew everybody else. Then a church deacon stood up late in a service and quoted Scripture: “Let he who is without sin cast the first stone.” Dramatic pause. “GOD has cast the first stone!” I seriously considered calling him a blasphemer and starting fist fight right on the church floor. Fortunately for both of us, I didn’t. I stayed around for the post-service meal and left that church forever, without saying a word.

    Isn’t it wonderful when people use a strict moral code for themselves, devoting themselves to spiritual growth and caring, learning every day to care for their boyfriends/girlfriends/souses/children and being able to listen and learn? I’d love to see stories like that on this or any site.

    all good news, let’s just remember to say a prayer for C

  15. On the subject of Jenny, the young lesbian who has stepped forward to take over the reins of Lesbian Lolita, you may be interested in reading this mini-biography of hers — wow!!

  16. MrStrut says:

    Jenny sounds like an amazing lady, looking forward to reading more in Lesbian Lolita! Welcome Jenny.

  17. Androgyne says:

    Anyone know if Leslita is having problems yet again? I submitted a story 9 days ago which never appeared. Following the advice on the “New Story” page I’ve Emailed “Jenny” twice asking if I need to re-submit my story and have not had a reply as yet. It’s also 9 days since any new story showed up on Leslita!


  18. Marc says:

    “LESLITA” to be stopped??!! VERY VERY SAD indeed!! I have been a BIG fan of LESBIAN LOLITA for more than ten years! I hope both “Juicy Secrets” and “Sealed by Mistress” will keep its wonderful legacy alive!…

  19. Cheryl Taggert says:

    Stories posted most recently on October 11. It’s still up and running.

  20. Marc says:

    I’m very glad to learn that!! Thanks for the information, Cheryl!

  21. Jenny says:

    Actually the most recent update was October 16, and it will be updated again in a few days

  22. Moses says:

    Anyone know what has become of Jenny and LL? Nothing new since Nov 6, 2015.


  23. Fur says:

    The last I heard from Jenny their email server had dropped the email they use and there were massive family problems. Fucker got pissed off over the changes their moms and Jenny made at leslita. That was in December and I’ve heard nothing since and they are not checking the email set up on my site that I’ve seen.

  24. Fur says:

    If you are looking for stories removed from leslita please let me know. I have them stored on my website server. I don’t have the ability to contact the removed authors and I’ve been reposting some of those stories at request of my members.

    I have an email that’s available from the main page you can use to contact me or my staff about stories.

  25. Poppet says:

    Whatever became of KatC? Her “Susan’s Summer” series was just wonderful…
