Explorations in Xenophilia: “Conclusion”


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

“And so it ends. After two years of travel I am back in Badchester at last. I arrived this morning by ox-cart, taking the old road from the Greenwood. I must admit I am glad to be home. It’s the smells that got me, the frying spices of the food stands, the roses that grow along Wommot’s Parade, the sweat of a million bodies all packed together into this great city. And now, the musty armchairs and cigar smoke of the faculty club. I sit here alone, thinking back on my adventures…”

Explorations in Xenophilia: “Leaflings”


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

“Sex for the Leaflings of the Greenwood has nothing to do with reproduction. Leaflings procreate asexually, by taking cuttings of themselves and letting them germinate in special greenhouse-like structures until maturity. Leaflings use their sexual organs to nourish one another. In order to understand the role that sex plays in Leafling culture, it is necessary to understand something of Leafling anatomy and physiology…”

Explorations in Xenophilia: “Centaurs”


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

“Every Centaur has two complete sets of genitalia—a humanoid set and an equine set. Each are found more-or-less where you would expect, with the human set located right at the point of transition into the horse body. The human genitals are often left out of classical depictions of Centaurs, and even some modern textbooks are bowdlerized in this manner. In such depictions the human waist transitions directly into the horse’s breast. In actuality, the Human part extends down between the horse’s shoulders, and only fully transitions in the perineal region…”

Explorations in Xenophilia: “Orks”


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

“Ork sexuality can seem brutal and horrific from the perspective of a Human unused to the pleasures of sadomasochism. Pain, humiliation, domination and submission are all fundamental to Ork erotic culture. For many readers this will no doubt reinforce negative stereotypes of a cruel and barbaric society, but in order to truly understand Ork sexuality we must put such prejudices aside and attempt to understand Ork sex acts for what they are: deeply pleasurable and profoundly erotic experiences…”

Explorations in Xenophilia: “Treefolk”


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

“Although the Treefolk of the Greenwood are essentially immobile, and never touch one another directly, they lead rich sex lives, particularly during the spring, or, as it is known in the Greenwood, the Flowering. Shuthuth explained to me that each flower is an exquisite and delicate sex organ in its own right, and to flower is to open oneself utterly to the Greenwood and to all other Treefolk…”

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…”

Explorations in Xenophilia: “Goblins”

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

“Goblins are also completely hairless and have very smooth, oily skin. Merkressa’s body was an absolute pleasure to touch, and she reported that she found mine rough and abrasive because of the unfamiliar hair follicles. She was fascinated by hair, especially by pubic hair, which struck her as hilarious. She thought of body hair as a kind of very diffuse clothing, and found it visually erotic in the same way as we might consider sheer stockings or a see-through blouse to be erotic…”
