I’d like to bring up a subject that is very near and dear to my partners and me: your comments and feedback, and how crucially important it is to us — and this site.

We three have addressed this topic many times over in our various blog entries, comments, statements of purpose and story introductions — but always as an aside. Now, the time feels right to explain why the gift of your words and thoughts means so very much to us.

First, a few words about what goes into making Juicy Secrets what it is.

Without even asking, I can speak for Naughty Mommy, Cheryl and myself in saying that the running of this site is a genuine labor of love. Read our first-year anniversary blog post to get an inkling of the satisfaction and outright joy we’ve derived from planning Juicy Secrets, bringing it to life and watching it grow.

But when you click onto our link and navigate around the site, exploring its nooks and crannies, what you’re seeing is the result of work. A lot of work. Adding new posts and stories (which often includes considerable reformatting from the original source), hunting for thrilling images to accompany them, making necessary changes to the site pages to present and catalogue these posts, penning notes and comments for each other’s writing, doing the back-and-forth with our guest authors (even the ones that don’t make the cut), trawling through Leslita’s vast repository of lesbian fiction for stories to add to our archive, etc.

Not to mention writing our own stories, which requires a heaping helping of time in itself.

Finally, there’s the hours my partners and I spend hashing ideas, problems, planning and logistics between us. You might find this difficult to believe, but we exchange emails about what’s happening with the site almost every single day, holidays included.

Needless to say, we don’t make a cent doing this. Actually, it’s not even possible to make a living writing the kind of fiction that we do. I’d estimate that ninety-eight percent of our content consists of stories that no publisher (actual or virtual) would touch with a ten-foot pole — and the lion’s share of them wouldn’t be accepted by any of the big erotica sites, either.

Which brings us to the million-dollar question: why do we do this? Well, there’s the pride my cohorts and I feel at having created Juicy Secrets, and the security of having a safe space for our work. But there’s also the enormous pleasure of having that work noticed and acknowledged, particularly in the words of praise and the thoughtful comments that some of you are kind enough to leave after you read.

It’s hard to describe just how good it feels, that giddy surge of delight that we experience when a reader compliments our writing. It’s a friendly pat on the back, an assuring smile, a hug of encouragement that tells us our work has value — and all the time, effort and occasional frustration that went into it was worthwhile. The warm regard of an audience is a better high than any drug, no question.

On the other hand, it’s a major downer to pay a visit to a recently posted story, one that you put your heart and soul into, and find no more than a single comment, or nothing at all. I’ve known authors of erotic stories — good stories — who’ve simply abandoned their craft in defeat, convinced that barely anyone gives a damn about their work.

Don’t misunderstand, dear readers — your Boy Author is not throwing a woe-unto-us pity party here. Cheryl, Naughty Mommy and I derive a great deal of satisfaction from doing what we do. But your comments add so much to that satisfaction that I’m willing to put aside my pride — indeed, even my dignity! — to plead with you good people: spare a thought for us when you especially enjoy reading a Juicy Secrets story, and leave a comment.

It should be added here that, much as we crave your praise, it’s even more important that you leave comments for our guest authors. Doing so will increase the likelihood that they’ll continue to write — a winning situation for both Juicy Secrets and its readers!

One final point: we are not — emphatically not — asking anyone to offer praise for our work if we haven’t earned it. As the great comedian Flip Wilson once said, “If you didn’t intend to applaud, don’t applaud. Keep your damn hands to yourself!” On the other hand, if the story moved your soul, got you feeling warm and tingly all over, or spurred you into a “happy ending” of your own… why not take sixty seconds out of your life to tell us so? Thirty seconds, even. Hell, you can type “Great story!” in less than ten. And it honestly does mean the world to us.

Thanks for indulging my shameless pandering, and for being a part of this site’s extended family. (You must be, if you’ve read this far.) May the road always rise with you.

Love, JetBoy

    Cheryl, Naughty Mommy and last but not least, Jetboy,i always wanted to show you my real feelings towards you and your little baby called “juicy secrets”, but to be honest, i dont really know how to in english, as german is my native language, so i´ll do it in german and hope you to find a good translator to give you back my expression as genuine as possible!

    Ich kann es nicht fassen, welch wundervolle Arbeit dies, nein das ist das falsche Wort, Leidenschaft trifft es tausend Mal besser, ihr für eure Leser auf den Weg bringt. Ihr versüßt mir so dermaßen mein Leben mit euren Fantasien und, hopefully, auch teilweise mit eurer Realität,ich feiere jede einzelne eurer Geschichten, schaue jeden Tag nach Updates und Fortsetzungen jeder einzelnen Geschichte,jubele wenn ich eine entdecke. Dann bleibt alles stehen und liegen, und ich lese mit äußerster Freude und Spannung, nein auch falsch, ich verschlinge jedes einzelne Wort! Auch eure Gastschreiber liebe ich, sie sind stets ein frischer Wind auf Juicy Secrets, liebend gern bitte bitte mehr davon!In diesem Sinne, bitte macht immer weiter mit der selben Freude und Leidenschaft wie immer, ich kann mir ein Leben ohne eure genialen Schreibereien nicht mehr vorstellen, in wahrer und ewiger Zuneigung, eure Jennifer <3

    • JetBoy says:

      Don’t sell your English short, Jennifer. It’s pretty good to me — a lot better than my German, anyhow!

    • Danke schön, Jennifer! 😀

    • MarkusWo says:


      I will try to translate Jennifer’s words as good as possible, because she says it better than I could!

      I can’t believe what wonderful work, no, passion fits it a thousand times better, you manage to create for you readers. You sweeten my life with your fantasies and hopefully sometimes with your reality.

      I celebrate every of your stories, check every day for updates and continuations of your stories and cheer if I discover a new one. In that case, everything else is put aside and I read with absolute joy and tension. No, I swallow eagerly every single word!

      I also dearly love your other authors. They are always a breath of fresh air on Juicy Secrets, please more of them. So, please keep on with the same joy and passion as before. I can’t imagine a life without your genius writings!

      With true and eternal affection, your Jennifer

  2. Chris says:

    To the three of you. Since I found this site I check EVERY day to see what is new, and try to follow all the great writings you publish. Keep your brain child going, for I would probably be lost without it.

    • PoppaBear says:

      You three wonderful guys know that I know what goes in to making this site so good as I did something similar as a professional for thirty years, but you do it for nothing and I was paid a salary.
      To me you three are the greatest thing since sliced bread (as the UK idiom quaintly has it) and I thank you and all the authors here for what you do, and I do try to applaud when so moved.

  3. tommyrotten says:

    Thank you for all the great, great work! Such good stuff.

    And when Flip said “keep your hands to yourself” I don’t think he meant like that…..


  4. Until just a few minutes ago, we weren’t aware that your site existed. But with the quality that you three write about our life style we will be back daily There is nothing like reading and play acting-our fantasies. We have lived most of them. Naughty Mommy has nothing on us lol.For the most part our one and only male lover is Daddy. No, make that our only male lover. It’s way more fun with him. Every so often we have new girl lovers that their moms who know of us and what our loving is like. We were kind of shocked when we realized how many moms are like us.Their girls are all beautiful like their mothers. Well,most of them are.The love they share is the true beauty. Hugs, the KellieKayla family

  5. Evan says:

    I appreciate your guys’ honest feedback with posts like this, JetBoy – it reminds us there are real people behind the screen. Keep up the good work!

  6. Sam says:

    Ouch. I am guilty as charged. Thank you for your labor of love. I enjoy this site and visit weekly. Some of the most erotic writing I have ever read resides here which is why I keep coming back. I will comment in future. sam

  7. Danny says:

    For me the placing of comments is a bit hit and miss, there are periods of the day where it just doesn’t work for some reason 🙁

  8. JetBoy says:

    Thanks to every one of you for the good thoughts… I consider it an honor to create erotic fantasies for your pleasure. You are the wave beneath my surfboard.

  9. revelnit says:

    Hey I just wanted to jump in and thank the authors for their good work that I’ve enjoyed for several months now. It’s not fair that I haven’t at least given a ‘good work’ to the authors here. I have one fanfiction story on and got several reviews and they were a joy to get. I will try to do some replies in the future.

  10. sue says:

    we love all the writers and the readers too, this type of loving lesbian old and young and incest just pushes all the right buttons for us,and so well written too. thank you all so very much.

  11. Snowy says:

    The topics you cover may be taboo, but my goodness you have created such a wonderful sense of community. The writing and comments has been enthralling. Please keep it up…

  12. babykeiko says:

    as an occasional author, i know the thrill and pleasure of writing and receiving author feedback as a result… once such feedback let to collaborations with authors such as Jetboy, but also daddyslittleslutmuffin, chrissy larkin and louisa may (my first… my forever love)

    and as a reader i crave the thrill of an erotic discovery… each word having the power to “take you there”…

    i love that this place exists, and love knowing there are real people that care as much about these feelings as i do…

  13. admatt says:

    I second all that Jennifer and others have said, favorably. I have read all the stories written by the three principals and those written by others. I enjoyed every one. I visit the site at least once a day, for updates, hoping that one or more new stories will be waiting. Often, there is one. Happily, I begin to read. I am very thankful for each of the three of you and the time and effort you expend to create a fabulous reading experience for us, your followers. Please continue, as in the past. You would be greatly missed, otherwise.

    • JetBoy says:

      Admatt reminds me of a point that I should have made in this post, but didn’t… it’s an especially meaningful gesture of kindness if you leave a comment after reading and enjoying one of our older stories. Lots of these were added to the site before it was open to the public, and never got the splashy publicity that our recent stuff receives. (Some of our vintage stories have no comments at all, so anything you might leave with them will mean a hell of a lot.) Thanks, peace out.

  14. Jen L. Lee says:

    I often leave a comment, but understand how it can be. With as much as I’ve written, you’d be surprised at how few people take the time to say much of anything. My only satisfaction in that regard is that some sites note how much traffic a story has and that lets me know people are reading over and over again. Just keep doing what makes you all happy and that, in turn, will please your readers.

    PS – sorry I haven’t been around as much, but I’m not well at present – so if you don’t see me, it’s because I’m not being seen.

  15. Sid says:

    I am probably on here more than I should be! LOL The quality of writing here is second to none. Finding others with the same interest in the taboo is comforting. I don’t know what I’d do without the work the authors here do!

  16. Lynn Ann says:

    We are all guilty of taking pleasure from all the wonderful writers efforts and failing to give them a few minutes to encourage and show our appreciation.
    I feel suitably chastised.

  17. JetBoy says:

    Once again, I offer thank-yous galore to each and every one of you for the good words and kind thoughts. You people are amazing.

  18. Cheryl says:

    What wonderful replies! Thank you, JetBoy! I am getting some excellent comments since this posted! These people ARE amazing!!!

  19. Andrea says:

    First I started writing my own leslita on a work computer. Mostly about high schoolers meeting in the rest room with one of their teachers. Getting tremendously aroused, then deleting the stories immediately. Then I discovered nifty. Then I discovered Juicy Secrets. My life is fulfilled. At least my fantasy life couldn’t improve, I don’t think. Thanks, hugs, kisses, and licks to you all. (Even JetBoy I’d reward you too!)

  20. Aliciamom says:

    Honestly, knowing that I’m not alone has been a wonderful discovery. Thank you all for your wonderful work. So so many happy endings 🙂

  21. Stevie says:

    Dear Authors,
    I discovered this site maybe a year ago and have been ‘wet’ ever since. Your stories describe my dreams and fantasies as if you were with me as I lived them.
    Like Aliciamom I thank you for letting me know that many others have the same dark desires that I do

  22. I’d like to mention just one more thing, in case it’s not already clear. When we encourage readers to leave comments, that doesn’t mean they always and only have to be positive comments. If there’s something you don’t like about a story, feel free to say that too — as long as you do so politely, of course. But we really do welcome critical feedback in addition to praise. Honestly, either one will make us happy. 😀
