Honey & Hot Wax: An Anthology of Erotic Art Games

Sex is…

…exploring your partner’s body like an adventurer in a surreal landscape

…experimenting at a BDSM party in search of your perfect kink match

…helping your lover reach new heights of pleasure…with your vampire bite

…a confusing yet exciting gossip topic for slumber parties

…masturbating with balloons and talking about it in a chat room

…not gay if it’s with your bro

…almost everything you do, if you’re hosting an alien symbiote

…difficult to describe using only a plate of sandwiches


Honey & Hot Wax is an anthology of games about sex by a diverse group of nine designers, edited by Lucian Kahn and Sharang Biswas. From games that merely talk about sex, to larps that feature sex acts, these games will challenge how you think about roleplaying, sexuality, and human relationships. The anthology includes a foreword by game designer Naomi Clark of Consentacle and a chapter on safety and consent by Maury Brown. It also includes games suitable for remote play via video chat and games ideal for those living together during social distancing.

Honey & Hot Wax includes the following live action roleplaying games:

In the Clefts of the Rock

by Lucian Kahn (Twitter: @oh_theogony)

You are a sentient, otherworldly landscape, and an explorer of landscapes. A surrealist game about touching each others’ bodies while imagining them to be other worlds.


Follow My Lead

By Susanne

An exploration of kink and kink negotiation where you play dominants and submissives searching for your ideal partners by leading or being led blindfolded through space.


Feeding Lucy

By Jonaya Kemper (Twitter: @VioletRiotGames)

A sex larp based on Bram Stoker’s classic vampire novel. Play the Lucy (a person whose body and desires are policed by society to be “pure”) or the Dracula (a vampire who in feeding off Lucy’s latent desires seeks to help her free herself to join the ranks of the beautiful creatures of the night).


The Sleepover

By Julia B. Ellingboe (Twitter: @QueenOvPirates) & Kat Jones

Play as adolescents learning and sharing knowledge about sex, sexuality, and gender identity. Explore how you take what you’ve heard from others and figure out what is true for you. 



By Alex Roberts (Twitter: @muscularpikachu)

Play as people who love and have sex with balloons. Build community and culture in cyberspace!


The Echo of the Unsaid

By Sharang Biswas (Twitter: @SharangBiswas)

Two ostensibly straight college boys explore unresolved sexual tension, and quite possibly, romantic attraction. You tell the story of sex by not talking about it, letting silence speak volumes.


You Inside Us

By Kat Jones & Will Morningstar (Twitter: @RiverOfInk)

A romance for two people in one body. You play as a human host and the alien symbiote living inside them, sharing their senses. You’ll learn new ways to touch and feel, letting yourselves blur together until it’s hard to say where one ends and the other begins.


Pass the Sugar, Please

By Clio Yun-Su Davis (Twitter: @cysdavis)

Friends and strangers meet for afternoon tea only to realize that they already hooked up with someone there at a secret BDSM sex party. Can you convey messages about your intimate experiences using only descriptions of the food?

    I heard about this on a podcast and immediately pre-ordered. Do you have a set release date for the PDF or is it once it hits a certain number of pre-orders?

    • Becky Smith says:

      Hi Zachary. This isn’t set in stone, but we’re hoping to have the PDF available for release by the end of May. Thanks, Becky.

        Any news on that front?

          Hi Alexander. There will be an update on this in the next See Page XX, which is coming soon. Thanks, Becky.

            Hi Becky!
            The recent “See Page XX” lists “Honey & Hot Wax” as a new release, redirecting to the product page; my profile shows the order as “by download”, and the downloads tab says “Your orders don’t include any downloads”. Is it not out yet, or do I have to do anything?

          • Becky Smith says:

            Hi Alexander. Honey & Hot Wax isn’t technically out yet. This is on pre-order, but we’re hoping to get the PDF to people who have pre-ordered, by the end of June. It will then appear under the ‘Downloads’ tab of your bookshelf. Thanks, Becky.

          • Liam Murray says:

            Hmm.. there doesn’t seem to be a release date in the latest See Page XX?

          • Becky Smith says:

            Hi Liam. You can find an update regarding this in the View From the Pelgrane’s Nest part of the latest See Page XX. We’re hoping to get the final PDF to people who have pre-ordered, by the end of June. Thanks, Becky.

    Is there any plans for a hard copy of this to be released? It is quite an elegant book, very excellent games.

  5. Doron Sabari says:

    Hello 👋, please explain: are these games fully constituted by and exclusively consist of the written instructions in the PDF sold here?

    • Becky Smith says:

      Hi Doron. Honey & Hot Wax is a stand-alone PDF, you don’t need any other books to run the games included. Thanks, Becky.

  6. Yannick says:
