Naked Reader Book Club Discussion: BOTTOMS UP and PLEASURE BOUND (November 30, 7-11 PM EST)

Kristina Wright Kristina Wright
Tonight in the Naked Reader Book Club, we're discussing Rachel Kramer Bussel's spanking anthology Bottoms Up and Alison Tyler's bondage anthology Pleasure Bound! Ready for some kink? Then welcome to the book club, where books and kink and lively discussion are the order of business!

Bottoms Up
Spanking Good Stories


Edited by Rachel Kramer Bussel
Discover how good being bad can feel.

As sweet as it is kinky, Bottoms Up will propel you to pick up a paddle and share in both pleasure and pain, or perhaps simply turn the other cheek. In "The Hardest Part," Alison Tyler perfectly captures a sub in thrall to a man who knows the power of anticipation. A "Sorority Sister" bends over to please her big sister during the rush season in Dominique Dunbar's naughty tale. Zille Defeu's "Reenactment" shows how some girls like it rough (and repeatedly). For those who have an endless capacity to bare their ass in preparation for a sound smacking—or deliver the deliciously ecstatic pain to a lover—this torrid tour de force is essential reading.

Pleasure Bound
True Bondage Stories


Edited by Alison Tyler
Kinky Stories From Real Life

"Of all the ties, ropes, tape, cuffs, ribbons and restraints that have held me down, up and spread-eagled, there's one kind of bond that will never come loose...." —from "Handfast" by Nikki Magennis

Who doesn't want to be bound by desire? Top erotica writer and editor Alison Tyler gathers twenty-three true-life bondage stories that take us into the delicious world of BDSM. In Pleasure Bound, everyone's favorite erotica writers share exquisitely explicit stories based on encounters from their own lives. Stephen Elliot submits to the beautiful agonies of goodbye sex in "Last Time Under the Exit Sign." Teresa Noelle Roberts discovers "Big Hands" are all the better for spanking. A lucky submissive experiences the double delights of flogging and exhibitionism in Sophia Valenti's "On the Mend." Punishingly good, these stories will have you begging for more.


******


Oh... those editors at Cleis Press surely know how to deliver stories that appeal to kinky (or want-to-be kinky) readers! Bottoms Up explores the sensual side of spanking, while Pleasure Bound is all trussed up in bondage. So, dear readers... are you a spanker or spankee? Like to be tied up and tied down, or do the knot work yourself? Or do you just like reading about characters who get their just desserts (and I'm not talking pumpkin pie!)?

We can't talk about spanking or bondage without also talking about the dynamics of such scenarios-- the dominant, the submissive, the switch. Top or bottom, these books explore kink from the inside out and invite you, the reader, to take a peek behind closed doors. Once considered taboo and a topic discussed only by men in gentlemen's clubs and written about by notorious authors like Henry Miller and Anonymous, spanking and bondage stories are now practically mainstream. Or are they?

Whether you've read either, both or neither, everyone is welcome at the Naked Reader Book Club! So put down that wooden spoon and bondage tape for a few hours and join the conversation!

Hi everyone! Nice to "see" you all here! I hope all of our U.S. residents had a lovely Thanksgiving! Personally, I'm very thankful for the Naked Reader Book Club because I've discovered new authors, books, hotels, wine and chocolate at every discussion!

Tonight's books take a walk on the kinky side-- RKB's delicious Bottoms Up is all about the joys of spanking and Alison Tyler's Pleasure Bound is about... you guessed it!... being all tied up by the one you love (or lust for).

Spanking and bondage are the topic of discussion! Let's talk favorite stories and scenarios!

So, unfortunately I haven't read either book, but as someone who does love a nice spanking, I'm super excited about this discussion.

I haven't read either book either, and I usually get kinda pissy when he tries to spank me (it's really about timing, he sucks at it), but I'm always excited to be at the Naked Reader discussions

I have Pleasure Bound in my stack at the moment and have looked through it, and I think Alison Tyler and I must just like the same things because I always love the stories I pick and from the bits and pieces I've read while paging through it, it's definitely another winner for me.

Hi Kristina!
Hey Laurel! I think spanking is an acquired taste, to be sure... There are some delicious stories in Bottoms Up to help one acquire the taste for more.

I'm lacking a glass of wine to enjoy, but I did bring a bowl of leftover split pea soup to work with me tonight. I know, I'm so exciting!

Excellent point. So the who dominance issue in bondage situations intrigues me. While the bf and I haven't gotten into actual bondage (yet), we've dabbled in a bit of power play (purely mental). I completely expected myself to be a total domme in the bedroom, but I'm finding that I don't mind so much when my guy takes control... so I categorize myself as a switch now, though I'm probably about 60% submissive and 40% dominant.

I don't know why I thought I'd be a domme, though, considering I already knew that I loved being spanked hehe. Granted, I like being the spanker occasionally

Mmm... soup is good on a cold night. But then, so is a good spanking.

Honestly, I think the power play you describe can change with the relationship, with age, with mood. As long as you both agree on who's in charge at a given time, it's all good! (Of course, having your power usurped by an unruly submissive can be fun, too! )
