7 Questions with #Author @ClarissaClemens (The Poetic Art of Seduction) #Erotic #Poetry

1. How much editing is involved in writing poetry?
The best gems come unfiltered. What seems to be a whole lifetime ago, before kids, I made a living as a textile artist splattering paint on cloth and watching it soak up. I realized back then that there are no mistakes in art. Art is entirely subjective and so when I opened up my poetry valve again to let all the words spill out, I realized that allowing the words to just come out raw, without any judgment or filter, was the best and most natural flow for my poetic scribblings. Most all of my poetry is left as is with maybe just a tweak here and there to ease the flow and enhance syncopation.

2. Why do you write erotic poetry?
As long as I can remember I have been a very sensually oriented being. I remember thinking to myself when I was probably 14 years old that I was going to need to find a life partner who had a strong physical drive so that we would be sexually compatible in our relationship.

After divorce, poetry became my therapy. I processed all the feelings and emotions through the poems. Early on (I believe the 4th poem I wrote) the words started channeling all the pent up sensual feelings that I had not been able to release for way too long. The poems were filled with passion, fantasies, and hope. I needed to reconnect with myself by writing all that was bubbling up just under the surface. The poems were my life preserver pulling me back into myself and giving me hope for my future.

3. Your poetry is quite vivid; is it inspired by your imagination or real life?
In the beginning, my erotic poetry was either based on memories of wild times or fantasies of what I had always longed to explore. It had been a while since I had been sexually active (due to a failing marriage) and there was all this pent up sexual tension that was rearing it’s gorgeous head as if to say, “Hey, did you forget about me?” After a couple years of healing and sorting out what I wanted, I began to live out the activities in my poetry. Today my poetry is based on the real life sensual adventures that I take with my loving partner.

4. When did writing become a part of who you are?
I have always loved the act of written expression and the copious highway between the brain, the imagination, and the ability to transcribe it onto ‘paper’. As a girl, I wrote articles about smog, women’s rights, and various school activities for my grammar school newspaper. In high school my favorite classes were always the ones where I could write and set my imagination free. When I went back to college, after my divorce, being able to compose an intelligent sounding paper helped me get through all kinds of challenging classes. I feel like writing has always been there for me from my earliest days of communicating to present day.

5. What are you most proud of in your personal life?
My daughters. Divorced when my girls were 8 and 5 years old, I became a single parent pretty much raising them by myself. It was an emotionally difficult situation to find myself in being suddenly alone and responsible for my 2 young daughters. With the help of my family and support of friends, I was able to take care of my girls and instill the values I hold dear while providing a safe and loving home for them.

My oldest daughter graduated from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo at the top of her major last year and was able to get a great job 2 weeks after she graduated. She is loving, responsible, compassionate to others and the earth, and a true leader for her peers. My younger daughter is halfway through college and continues to amaze me as I watch her grow and mature as she discovers her passions. She is smart, adventurous, loving, a true lover of animals and science, and understands human nature. I love them dearly and am so proud of them both.

6. Tell us about your latest book?
The Poetic Art of Seduction – The Erotic Poetry Collection is a compilation of the 3 volumes of my most sexy poetry to date. There are over 70 poems to be devoured in this book. The subject matter is highly sensual, oftentimes kinky, but always classy. There is a playful element that I like to include in my erotic writings. After all, sex should be fun, right? In addition to the 70+ poems, I have included over 40 photos to complement and enhance the sensory experience to include visual stimulation as well.

7. What’s the reason for your life? Have you figured out your reason for being here yet?
Yes, I do think I have it figured out. My inherent talent is to put into words the feelings that surge through us as sensual beings. I am able to assemble prose to paint pictures of the way it feels to want, desire, love, need, have your heart broken, feel hope for love, portray fantasies without a filter, and live a fulfilling sensual life. When people read my poetry they are able to put themselves behind my words and live through them. The poetry allows people to connect to a deeper place residing inside their heart and soul. I had no idea when I wrote my poems that they would be this universal.  Over the last couple of years since I published my first book, I hear comments over and over about how my poems have helped people to process buried feelings and open up a fountain of sensuality that was lying just under the surface.

My reason for this particular life is to help people love and feel joy through the scenes I paint with words.
