Consider the Nobleman attended by the nubile Ladies Maid, explore the indiscretions of the Lady of the house with the Under Footman and peep in on the Nanny and the Stable Boy. In this Grand Home the Servants are polishing much more than the silver. Upstairs, downstairs—on the stairs and everywhere in-between, sexy goings on between the haves and the have not’s are the order of the day.
Find out what it really means to be ‘in service’ to a Master and Mistress.
Share a bed with the Scullery Maid and be up early to black lead the stove
before the Butler does the Cook in his Pantry! The many roomed Mews House
overlooks Pomeroy Gardens, a public space where there is often a lot of very
private play! The Stable Yard to the rear is full of opportunities for a roll in
the hay. There you will also find a gorgeous Rolls Royce limousine complete with
an equally delicious Chauffeur/euse.
This Edwardian, between the Wars setting, is where many personalities come together in all sorts of naughty ways. Look in on the buttoned up and booted women, simmering with unspoken lust and the laid back rakes with nothing better to do than chase the servant girls and boys. Gossip, secrets, deceit and plenty
of sex fill the days and nights in the genteel Edwardian world that is Pomeroy
All sub-genres welcome, but we are looking for a balanced mix. We expect imaginative pairings, locations and set-ups, keeping true to the spirit of the period as
well as strong character development. All heat levels welcome, but we like it
hot! All characters must be over 18; no incest, scat or bestiality.
