Explorations in Xenophilia: “Pixies”


Note: This is the eighth in a series of excerpts from Doctor Meredith Underwood’s influential book on the erotic lives of xenosapient people, Explorations in Xenophilia.

“Gloriana Mustardseed, my primary subject for this chapter, is a hunter by profession, but Pixies do not hunt for meat—they hunt for eros. The tips of Pixie arrows are smeared with a potent aphrodisiac, derived from the sap of the sugermilk tree. A Human whose flesh is pierced by such an arrow will feel no more than a sharp prick (the sensation is similar to that of a bee sting) but will almost immediately begin to experience a powerful and urgent arousal, and will seek satisfaction in whatever manner is most convenient to him or her. The erotic culture of the Greenwood Pixies is based on voyeurism and mischief, and there is no greater joy for Pixies than to watch other creatures making love, especially when there is something illicit or scandalous about the sex. The Cupid myth, variations of which are found in many different cultures and historical periods, is clearly based on Pixies…”

Explorations in Xenophilia: “Satyrs”

Note: This is the seventh in a series of excerpts from Doctor Meredith Underwood’s influential book on the erotic lives of xenosapient people, Explorations in Xenophilia.

“Morningtown is a conservative and highly religious community, in which sex before marriage is condemned and the children of unwed couples are sent away to Badchester orphanage. For young Morningtown women, therefore, the Mossbottom Satyrs are perfect partners for sexual experimentation: they are not members of the community, so there is little chance of discovery; there is no chance of rejection, as no Satyr has ever been known to turn down an offer of sex; there is no chance of accidental pregnancy, as Satyrs and Humans cannot interbreed; and—perhaps most importantly—they are passionate, muscular, virile lovers with large phalluses that never become flaccid…”

Explorations in Xenophilia: “Zephyra”

Note: This is the sixth in a series of excerpts from Doctor Meredith Underwood’s influential book on the erotic lives of xenosapient people, Explorations in Xenophilia.

“In traditional Zephyra culture, sex is only engaged in for purposes of reproduction, and it is considered immoral to take pleasure in the act. Zephyra couples fly into the depths of a storm cloud to have sex. The interior of these clouds is so dark that the lovers cannot even see one another. Most Zephyra have therefore never seen another naked Zephyra.

For Lalash and her friends, however, nudity has become a form of glorious and erotic rebellion. She is the founder of a group of young Zephyra, known as the Sky Dancers, who engage in illicit, naked flight.”

Explorations in Xenophilia: “Phantomons”

Note: This is the fifth in a series of excerpts from Doctor Meredith Underwood’s influential book on the erotic lives of xenosapient people, Explorations in Xenophilia.

“The desert ends abruptly, at the Ostrun River, one of three rivers that feed the Great Plains of Mak. The savannah seemed a lush Eden after our weeks in the desert. It is a flat, verdant landscape, blanketed with bushes and fruit trees. An intoxicating fragrance of fruit and flowers fills the air and the tall grasses seem to caress you as you walk through them. After the dry heat of the desert the air feels moist and heavy, a physical presence. I had a strong urge to throw off my clothes and run naked through the grass, letting the air envelope my dry, sunburned skin in its damp embrace…”
