The CLEAN & DIRTY event (our first of 2016) is on TUESDAY 9 FEBRUARY, to get you feeling filthy or frisky for Valentine's Day. It's recommended by Londonist as a top Thing to Do that day, so come along and see what the buzz is about!
We had a positive tidal wave of submissions for our first event of 2016, and having waded through fragrance and filth alike, our judges have plucked out six steamy stories for you.
We've got dirty dictionaries and OCD romance, marriage inspectors, vengeful cleaners, sex in IKEA, and at least two uses for Marigold gloves plus our usual infamous book quiz (with a romantic twist) sexy sweeties and of course the chance to meet the literature-loving hottie of your dreams while queuing at the bar ...
