While at Eroticon this weekend, something came up that I think deserves a bit of a discussion. While watching a S&M demo, I looked around the room at the audience in attendance, and noticed that there were a few members who did not seem comfortable with the situation. After the demo was done, there was a brief discussion about what we (as the audience) just saw. One individual brought up what I had noticed. In turn, Rubyyy Jones asked those in attendance who had never seen an actual session before.
A small number in attendance raised their hands. Rubyyy then asked those who had their hands in the air if they had ever written about BDSM before. The conversation kind of fizzled out from there, which was a shame, since it really could have expanded on the concept as a whole – do some fetish authors write without experiencing the activities they write about, and on a lesser note, does the reader ever notice the difference?
For a few months now, I have been writing a FemDom / dominatrix blog for a third party. While I consider myself a submissive, I do have Switch tenancies, which come out when I write for this blog. The blog in itself is about a fictional dominatrix named Davina, her husband and sub who she calls ‘puppy’, and her new submissive who she is training named ‘kitten’. The webmasters want it quite stereotypical, which draws in the vanilla surfers that are their main target. While the majority of the blog is ‘scene’ replays, there are a few times where I get on my D/s soapbox.
Although I currently don’t publish my erotica at Smashwords, there are some that might find this news interesting.
Paypal is requiring Smashwords to remove any erotica that contains bestiality, rape, or incest. I know that the first category is still a bit taboo, the second less so (especially in BDSM), and the third being quite common.
Here is the email that is floating around…
