Romeo D'Nati

Romeo D'NatiThis Cincinnati OH poet is best known for his sensual and erotica poetry. Romeo is on a mission to bring back the Love, Romance and Passion that is often missing from the homes of the world. His thought provoking and sensitive pieces resonate with women and men alike as they hit home.

Romeo, like his name indicates, is a lover of all things intimate with a passion that he conveys into his poems. Romeo is a winner of the 2013 Cincinnati Poetry Award for Best Sensual/Erotica Male Poet, a Spokenword Billboard Awards Nominee, monthly host of the Apollo at The Greenwich, and has appeared on local cable television, in commercials and movies. Romeo's current projects include a spokenword CD and book "My (S.E.X.i) Thoughts," a collection of intimate poems and short stories due out in 2014. Besides tingling ears with his poetic flavor, Romeo D'Nati also tantalizes taste buds working as a Personal Chef.

Making one request of each listener before he begins his piece he humbly asks, "Lend me your ear, so I can touch your mind, fill your heart and enter into your soul with my thoughts..."


Jeremy Edwards, Erotic Author

Jeremy EdwardsJeremy Edwards is a widely published author of erotic short stories, and the author of the erotocomedic novels Rock My Socks Off and The Pleasure Dial.

Though he is aware that most of the planet’s sentient species manage to enjoy copulation without ever putting on their reading glasses, he personally feels that a judicious turn of explicit phrase can be worth its weight in primal bliss. He strives to blend the sensuous and the playful, lighthearted laughter and erotic urgency. Jeremy writes heterosexual and lesbian erotica; his stories revolve around sensitive, cerebral, sexually self-aware women and the men and women who adore them. One reviewer has referred to his writing as an “irresistible blend of raunch and romantic sweetness.”

Jeremy’s libidinous literary efforts are well represented at many of the erotica scene’s high-quality online venues (Clean Sheets, Erotic Woman, Every Night Erotica, FeatherLit, Fishnet, Good Vibrations, Oysters & Chocolate), and his stories have appeared in over fifty anthologies offered by Cleis Press, Xcite Books, and other publishers. His work was selected for The Mammoth Book of Best New Erotica, vols. 7, 8, 9, and 11, and he has been featured in the literary showcase of the Seattle Erotic Art Festival. Out on the newsstand, he was a frequent contributor to Scarlet and Forum/Foreplay magazines in their day.
