Naked Reader Book Club Discussion: Safe Word An Erotic S/M Novel by Molly Weatherfield (September 13, 8-10 PM EST)

NuMe NuMe
Welcome to the Naked Reader Book Club! The amazing Sacchi Green will be our host this evening. Tonight's discussion should be a lot of fun!

Safe Word
An Erotic S/M Novel by Molly Weatherfield

The sequel to Carrie’s Story, Safe Word continues Molly Weatherfield’s tale of uncompromising sexual adventure. Carrie leaves behind her life with her lover Jonathan, intent on proving herself to the demanding gentleman who has chosen her as his own. Whisked away to Greece, Carrie learns new, more rigorous methods of sexual satisfaction. When her year of training is complete, she faces a decision—life on her own or in the embrace of a beloved Master.

Imagine The Story of O starring a Berkeley PhD in comparative literature (who moonlights as a bike messenger) with a penchant for irony, self-analysis, and anal sex. Safe Word takes the reader on a sexually explicit journey into a netherworld of slave auctions, training regimes, and human “ponies” preening for dressage competitions.

Here's your pre-discussion reading assignment, so you can start chewing on the topic.


Molly Weatherfield is a pen name for Pam Rosenthal, who's written four erotic historical romance novels, the latest of which, The Edge of Impropriety, won Romance Writers of America's RITA award for best historical romance of 2009. As Pam (and sometimes as Molly), she's written occasional reviews and essays, in Salon.com and more obscure venues. A former computer programmer, she's always been interested in alternative worlds -- erotic, fictional, cybernetic: as mollyw she's currently exploring the adults-only environments in the online universe known as SecondLife.com while living her first life with her husband in San Francisco. You can find out more about her at link

Molly shares this with us:

On How I Came to Be an Erotic Writer in the First Place: It was all about being in the right place at the right time. Being lucky enough, in the early 1980s, to be a part-owner (with my husband and a few others) of the wonderful leftie Modern Times Bookstore on Valencia Street in San Francisco, right down the block from the legendary Good Vibrations, when brilliant feminists like Susie Bright, Carol Queen, Amber Hollibaugh, and Gayle Rubin were exploring alternatives to the prissy, PC, faux-egalitarian sexuality our movement was threatening to consign us to. The synergy between a particularly open-minded leftism and a daring, creative feminism was a rare and beautiful thing, easy to take for granted now, or perhaps (in these harsher times) all too easy to forget ever existed. Anyway, it allowed me some quality time with my hitherto bottled-up erotic imagination -- from my fervid, quaking-in-my-Keds reading of the Marquis de Sade in high school to my discovery of Story of O a few years later.

Sadly I don't think that I will be able to make it to this meeting either. Sunday night/Monday morning, my husband had to rush me to the ER with chest pains and difficulty breathing. It was not a heart attack. It is something called pericarditis. Basically, the muscle tissue thingy around my heart was damaged or infected in some way causing it to become inflamed (swollen) and that's what caused the pain and the difficulty breathing.

Pericarditis can vary from mild to fatal. Fortunately, mine seems to be fairly mild, and although I'm still in a bit of pain and can't breathe as easily as I should, they think that it will probably go away on its own in a few weeks.

It is possible that fluid will build up in my pericardium, and it will have to be drained. Or my pericardium could get tighter and tighter making it harder and harder for my heart to beat and they would have to surgically remove my pericardium. But neither of those possibilities are very likely according to the ER docs.

Anyway, because of that and my usual sleep schedule issues, I probably won't be awake for the meeting. Hopefully, I will be able to make the next one.

Yes, Ivy, take care of yourself and get well! Maybe we can find a nice soothing book for your first time back. This one would definitely not fill that bill!

Thanks Liz and Sacchi! I haven't read Safe Word or it's prequel, but I did read the paragraphs above about the author. Sounds like she's had a very interesting life.

I expect some folks are catching up with the introductory parts above. I don't mind; it gives me a chance to check out the Publishers Weekly review of Kristina's almost-out Steamlust, with a mention of my story.

I'd really love to read more about Pam/Molly and her days in the wide-open 80s in San Francisco. I lived in the area (Oakland) in the late 60s, which were pretty wide-open in their own way, but with no Good Vibrations or Modern Times bookstore.

Sammi, bruises would be just the thing to wear to this discussion, no matter how you came by them.
