Chopping Wood, Shaping Metal & Other Erotic Stories

I write about the things that turn me on, the things that turn my lovers on.  So I write about BDSM, power exchange, non-monogamy, polyamory.  My erotica is often edgy and challenging.

Most of this collection was written during 2020 – 2021 in the midst of the COVID pandemic.  A couple of pieces were updates of pieces written between 2009 and 2020.   

One piece was inspired by a TikTok thirst trap and another by a trip to a renaissance fair.  Enjoy this peek into my erotic world.

Feedback & Reviews

Dancing the edge to reclaim your reality’ is a much-needed book to help survivors of all kinds to navigate the world of sex and relationships. Lori Beth Bisbey rightly puts the childhood experience of gaslighting right at the heart of the struggles which so many of us face in trusting our feelings, treating ourselves consensually, and finding safe-enough relationships. She explains clearly how being trained from a young age to question and discount our realities puts us at risk. She then kindly takes the reader through a number of ways in which they can learn how to reality check, tune into their bodies, risk assess situations, and nurture nourishing relationships from now on. This is an optimistic, inclusive book which provides a great relationship toolkit, whatever your sexuality or relationship style.

“My Beloved and I have known Dr. Bisbey for over a decade, and during that time we’ve been intimately involved with her on various planes and levels. To have been able to get the chance to peruse her memoir and get a glimpse of what her life was before we entered into it was both stimulating and enlightening.

Being able to do and see the things she was able to do and see at a time when alternative lifestyles were vilified and shunned by mainstream society will give the reader a chance to appreciate the various levels of freedom that have been enjoyed in present-day society. Not to mention understanding the technological advancements that were not available during that time, which placed her in a position to where she had to venture out and experience everything that she is now recounting within the pages that are to come.

Sit back, keep an open mind, and for those that have the ability to, indulge in the nostalgia as you read through all of her experiences and feelings and interconnections. Oh, and the erotic vignettes are an absolute bonus!”
