Keyword surveys on literotica
« on: January 25, 2019, 01:39:40 pm »
Hello!

If you have ever tried to peruse the cache of stories at literotica, perhaps you have had a reaction similar to my own. There are simply too many stories there to decide where to spend one's time. They have a decent search page, but it only gets you so far. I often have to search, then open each result and start skimming to determine if the story is appealing to my tastes. It takes a lot of time to find something worthwhile. So, I have decided to outsource all this surveying of the stories to a service that performs deeper searches and wraps the results up in a tidy report. Rather than horde these reports, I have decided to post them online for anyone's perusal.

Go to

https://steelraptstories.blogspot.com/

to find a list of recently posted stories that meet certain search criteria. Also, I present short snippets of the story centered around search keywords in case you would like to get a taste of the flavor of the story.

I have always preferred BDSM stories, so there is a definite tilt towards such fair. Every Sunday, I survey the latest "chastity" stories, for example. I'm also always trying to think of clever ways to root out the best stories. I'm open to any search suggestions that you may have.

I post a new survey almost every day, so certainly there must be something to your liking!

I agree, finding everything of interest (or something specific) can be pretty daunting on literotica, on gromet I've solved it with reading everything in the sections of interest

agreed, literotica's site does not have great search functions.  google advanced search works on literotica,  i find its easier to pinpoint (needle) what i'm looking for that way

Have you all tried out looking at my blog where I try to survey the most recent additions to literotica? I'm dying for some feedback as to whether anyone finds the blog entries useful for discovering new favorites...

http://steelraptstories.blogspot.com/

Is the presentation helpful (e.g. the samples with particular keywords...)?
Are there different keywords that you would be interested in searching with on a regular basis? (Currently, I search for chastity, needle, straitjacket, petplay, prisoner, and nanites on a fairly regular basis...)
Are there other sites that you would be interested in surveying other than literotica?

Recently, I've been trying to improve the quality of the samples that are extracted from the stories. Soon, I'm thinking of surveying the recent additions to thefetlibrary.com. I've also thought about trying to "interview" specific authors and promoting their work upon occasion (but, I'm really quite shy, so...).

Thanks for any feedback!

Hello,

I have extended the collection of sites that I survey to include The Fet Library!

Here is my first attempt at surveying the most recent stories posted to The Fet Library.

Now, my service surveys recently posted stories from The Fet Library, Gromets Plaza, Utopia Stories, and Literotica.

You can see the reports on my blog: steelraptstories.blogspot.com which contain links to the stories, as well as some strategically extracted snippets containing BDSM related keywords intended to provide a taste of the flavor of the story with the hope of making the search for your next favorite erotic story an efficient process.

Check it out! Make suggestions!

I'll admit I forgot this existed after I went through it a while back, but it was nice then, and fet library seems like a good addition (I hadn't heard about it), thanks for taking the time to organize the chaos.

Thanks a lot for stopping by my site. And thanks for the comment. I've spent a bit of time recently trying to improve the quality of the "snippets" of text. There are still bugs there, but I still have a few ideas that I want to implement. I'm also planning on spending a little time improving the look of the report. Also, mcstories.com is a possible next target.

If anyone has any ideas of keywords to experiment with, I'd love to hear them!

Personally, for me, when I review the reports, I still find that there is a lot of things that just do not look very interesting, but I do find good stories that fit my tastes. Stories that I might have missed otherwise. I will always be looking for ways to improve the results.

Just found this. Thanks for all your work subgrrl. I agree it's difficult to find stories that push my buttons on Literotica. Your capsule reviews are quite helpful.

It's helpful but it also underscores the dearth of things that interest me. Sigh.

Oh, no! Well... I used the keyword "ropes" for today's survey. Maybe there will be something for you in this collection? Hee hee! Thanks for stopping by and checking out my experiment!

As a side note: Wow! It's really surprising how often the word "ropes" is used to mean male ejaculate. I guess I'm not really a specialist on such substances, but... You learn new things every day...

Yeah, not my kinda 'ropes' either.

Thanks for the heads-up on your latest search. You'd think with my love of ropes and the huge amount of material at Literotica there'd be more things pushing my buttons. Guess my scope is rather narrow. I did find a couple stories with some interesting scenes, although not too much.

I'll continue writing my own porn. It's the only way to be certain my kinks will be addressed.

I'm grateful for your work.
