Be our Guest

Summer has been poking its warm head in doors and windows across the globe and the sunshine seems to make everything just a little easier. It is hard to believe the year is almost half way through. Seems like only yesterday we were celebrating the New Year.

And here at The Manor, it has been a busy one for sure. This year has welcomed many new voices to the team producing exciting and arousing content for listeners' satisfaction. This is all good and pleasing to the team at The Manor responsible for the hard work that has made eSensual a success.

As always, we have a lot of irons in the fire and we are constantly researching and discussing new ways to bring you even more pleasure. You might be surprised to know of some of the projects we have had to shelve due to extreme content. We continue to push the boundaries as far as we can, as often as we can, but it is not always easy to give listeners what they want. We are working on that.

Amazon has its 'Dungeon' where erotic fiction is hidden away to languish out of the public gaze. Audible (an Amazon company) likewise makes it lamentably difficult to search for erotic audio products, lest they pervert and debouch the wider population. YouTube and others are also squeezing the content that they consider to be 'titillating' or 'designed to arouse'.

Alternatepress Limited and its subsidiary, eSensualBooks, were founded by Essemoh Teepee in 2012 to be an antidote to this oppression, for want of a better word. The site has gone from strength to strength under the Executive Direction of Genevieve Ash, growing year on year, offering fans a guarantee of quality erotic audio and stories that suit all tastes.

However, AlternatePress Limited and eSensual Books are full service publishers, having contractual arrangements with payment processors, banks, Amazon, Smashwords and Audible amongst others. This means, to some extent, they have to abide by the restrictions that these associations impose.

(One of the reasons we no longer offer PayPal is their aversion to anything 'adult')

The 'rules' mean that content cannot be 'too extreme', covers and blurb have to be 'tasteful', as well as a long list of do's and don'ts. That is the price of being in business. eSensual Books pushes at the boundaries wherever possible and the Triple XXX audio content is one example, but even this has limits.

Simply put, the restrictions on general publishing constrain some of the content we at The Manor would like to produce and offer to our listeners.

After much debate, we consider that the Patreon model might just enable us to supplement the work we will continue to do at Alternatepress and the eSensual Group, while freeing us up from the restrictions and opening up our content to wider explorations.

To this end we have developed @Club_eSensual on Patreon. There we will host open public access blogs with regularly updated content and quirky points of view. But in addition, there will be @Club_eSensual Members blogs that go much further as well as new and unique content that is unsuitable for Alternatepress and eSensual Books. Listeners, fans, the curious and the experimenters seeking to find their boundaries, will have access to material that will entice, excite, arouse and satisfy their desires in ways we have not been able to offer to date.

What are your deepest desires? Come explore them in a safe, sex-positive environment designed to expand your horizons and interact with colleagues from the Manor as well as other listeners. Club_eSensual is the place to Experience the Fantasy like you never have before! Please join us for a cool drink and a tour around the club. Come as you are and visit with us. We look forward to seeing you there.
