I still have a fond memory of a scene in Pleasure Bound where a girl was being f-ed in front of a large bay window.

Oh and another story, can't remember the book, where a girl was having the sex of her life in a windowed shower while her husband was watching from the Jacuzzi bath.

I believe in power exchange, not power usurp (that's how I've always put it, HAHA!!!). And it wasn't my comment, really. It was what the book was portraying, so I was just making that statement.

Submissives can sometimes have the same strength as Dominants, but not always. As I said, that's their choice. I personally prefer a strong submissive, one who can stand up to the world but be weak to only me. There's strength in that giving of weakness to one person and allowing them into you that I like. In a way, I'm weak to the one who is my submissive, because I let THEM into me in ways that I do not allow the majority of the world. So I agree with you for the most part for MY relationships, but it's not really fair to say that about all because some submissives don't LIKE being strong.

Trial By Fire from Playing With Fire was fantastic for me as well... that one struck so many chords.

Like a corkboard that one posts images and phrases and (depending on the project and the person's hobby/skill/profession ) color swatches, materials, pics from designers or weddings or interior decorators or this or that or the other (again, depending on project/hobby/skill/pr ofession) to draw ideas and inspiration from and sort of give the project an initial framework. I think I know some people who'll do an intitial board then another and another as things take shape. I AM OCD but not quite that much, though. One should do it for me, methinks. I'm also a collage artist so it's a very familiar territory for me, in a sense.

One more author's comment, from Giselle Renarde. This story has some really intense personal dynamics in it.


The title for my story Dry Rub came to me, perhaps not surprisingly, while watching an episode of "Man vs. Food" featuring some delicious-looking barbeque. The content was formed around the title. I knew I wanted to write about "dry humping" and that act brought to mind images of schoolgirl uniforms and bad boy leather pants--so that's what I dressed my characters in. They're high school sweethearts all grown up and dealing with domestic irritations. As for the bondage using dinner napkins? Well, my girlfriend has this weird neurosis where she can't eat dinner without a cloth napkin in her lap. Okay, it's not really a neurosis, but she really, really, REALLY likes cloth napkins. Paper ones go better with barbeque, but, hey... to each her own.

Very interesting!

Thanks, Kake. That's really interesting. Although for me it might turn out to be one more way to ut off actual writing.

I've been wanting to visit a Pro-Domme but I'm afraid the expense is well out of my budget to say the least.

That's an intriguing concept. I don't work like that, but I do know other writers (usually those who are also artists) who do. Intriguing.

Here's a question for readers. Do you refer a book that's entirely focussed on kink, or one where there's a variety of types of sex, so that the kinky ones stand out?

I wholeheartedly concur. That's a big allure for me regardless of some of the other aspects that I also enjoy. Ultimately, for me, it's about the connection, which I've always found to be that much more intense (for the most part) in my kink relationships than in my vanilla ones.

Hmmm, I'd be curious to know the approximates prices they ask. Must also depend on the fetishes involved.

The one I saw was something like $120 for an hour? I consider it an expense well worth it, I learned *so much,* and felt completely safe and didn't have to worry that I was pulling anyone's heartstrings while I was learning.

Kink. And, in particular, many facets of kink.

Both? Just depends on what I'm in the mood for.

I like a book with stories that are well written Even non-kinky stories can be really warm... I guess I mean I enjoy a variety. But even a book that's all kink but with different varieties of kink can be good too.

I suppose it depends on the month. Perhaps one month I'd buy an anthology focused on a kink I know I already love, and another month I'd choose one with a variety so I could stretch my imagination.

I like both, but I have to be pretty damn sure that I like the kink if I'll got for a specific theme. For bondage, I prefer variety, as I have not really found a niche I preferred to the rest. I like exhibitionism/voyeuris m, and it's broad enough that I'll enjoy a book about it. I like the stories to have elements of surprise with what/whom/how/when.

I've never had an issue with a large male dominant and I've had a very rough past in regards to abuse and similar things. However, I do see how it might be less intimidating for some. For me, though, it was something I had worked through as much as one can before I discovered my submission so it wasn't as much of an issue (though in the beginning, it did leave me struggling with concerns/fears/emotion s/etc that I hadn't experienced in years). I think for *most* abuse survivors, it's more about the emotional context but the physical element can definitely reinforce that. And, ofc, this is just my experience and mho.

I like a variety of sex, that way it's a surprise!

While I have the chance, I want to mention that Kristina Wright will be doing a reading of her anthology Lustfully Ever After in NYC at Bluestockings Books on June 5th. I haven't had a chance to read the book yet, but I'm sure there'll be some BDSM variations on fairy tales in it. My own story "Kit in Boots" is one of those, and I'll be there with her reading, too. (This is one of my rare hetero stories.)

True, without the emotional context, you wouldn't be able to do much with D/s if there are insecurities.

Is that book in print now? I've been looking forward to it. I loved the previous fairy tale anthology.

Unfortunately I'm no where near NYC, but best of luck on your reading Kristina!
