not Fifty Shades of Grey

I don't understand why Fifty Shades of Grey is ridiculously popular when literary erotica isn't a new phenomenon. Which BDSM-themed books do you think would be more worthy of a nationwide craze? Or rather, which books should fans of Fifty Shades read next for a more erotic experience?

Exactly.

I haven't found a series that I would recommend, however Gentleman's Wager by Madelynne Ellis has long been a favorite.

If you have to have a billionaire in your erotica, The Ninety Days of Genevieve by Lucinda Carrington might interest you. Here's the blurb:

"A 90-day sex contract wasn't exactly what Genevieve Loften had in mind when she began business negotiations with the arrogant and attractive James Sinclair. As a career move she wanted to go along with it; the pay-off was potentially huge. However, she didn't imagine that he would make her the star performer in a series of increasingly kinky and exotic fantasies. Thrown into a world of sexual misadventure, Genevieve learns how to balance her high-pressure career with the twilight world of decadence."

Before anyone starts with, "that sounds like Fifty…" know that Genevieve was first published in 1996.

Something that's actually about BDSM. A quote from a review by Katrina Lumsden:

"This is not a book about BDSM, this is a book about one sick, abusive man and his obsession with a young, naive invertebrate. It's a book about a girl who has absolutely no sense of self, who sacrifices any pretense of individuality in order to hold onto a man who doesn't even show her the faintest glimmer of respect. It's about two attention-starved individuals with the emotional maturity of toilet paper convincing themselves that their relationship is 'like, the best thing ever, OMG'. It's trite, insulting, and dangerous. I fear for any impressionable young women who read this and think that this is how an ideal relationship should operate. If nothing else, it should be issued as a guidebook to mothers around the world to show their daughters the kind of man to avoid at all costs. This book does good men (and indeed, all of humanity) a disservice."

Read the review.

The first Kushiel Trilogy. Not everything was to my taste, but my god can that author (Jacqueline Carey) write. It had politics, intrigue, murder, spirituality, action, adventure, and a sexy masochist heroine.
