Adrianna Taylor, Story of Control, BDSM Writers, Dominatric, non-fiction BDSM 
My book is factual
not fiction!

What got you interested in writing about BDSM?

I am a Dominatrix, and have been for three years, so my book is based on real life accounts of my sessions. Initially I had no intention to write a book, but a man I met by chance (who is now my editor and business partner), said, when I told him what I did: “Adrianna, I bet you have some really interesting stories to tell about being a Dominatrix. I am sure people would love to read your real life account, as opposed to the fictional ones that are now so popular.” I thought about it for a week or so, then started writing. 6 months later, my book, The Story of Control is on sale on Amazon, both as a Kindle E-book, and as a paperback.

What research, if any, have you done into BDSM to make your stories realistic?

Being a Mistress, I can draw inspiration for my sessions. For example, if I have a client who has a very interesting persona, or is outlandish in their wishes, they make interesting characters to write about. Or if I try a new activity in my sessions, I can write about that too. I like to portray the realistic side of BDSM, as it is not all dungeons and PVC. My clients are real people who rely on my making their fantasy a reality, either for their sexual gratification, or  just to lay to rest a nagging fantasy.  What differences or difficulties, if any, do you see in writing D/S stories as opposed to your typical romance?
With my book, The Story of Control,  I have successfully Adrianna Taylor, Story of Control, BDSM Writers, Dominatric, non-fiction BDSMcombined enough of the BDSM kinky element, but have also added other threads, an important one being romance. In my opinion, if written well, romance and BDSM can go together. Everyone, whether they admit it or not, has a kinky side. But often they may just not know how to let out and satisfy it.
Do you get any sexual gratification from being a Dominatrix? From reading your book, it’s obvious that your clients do. But do you?
Personally I don’t get sexual grafication from dominating a client, I enjoy having control over someone but see it more as a strict boss-employee situation.
 
What does your partner think about you being a Dominatrix, and seeing men without clothes on, and spanking their bare bottoms?
Most of my clients are a lot older than myself and certainly not what I would consider attractive. My partner has always been very supportive of me and is completely fine with me seeing clients, and on occassions has also watched a session on request by a client
Adrianne has been a mistress for three years. At the age of 23, disillusioned with the world of modelling, I entered the world of BDSM. Being a young Mistress wasn’t always easy, as I would often be scrutinised by older Mistresses, and older potential clients. Some said I was too young to understand corporal punishment, as could not understand how a person would feel being summoned up for the cane. I agreed to an extent, but I knew what fear felt like, growing up with an abusive father and walking on eggshells, never sure which character would be coming home at the end of the day was something I feared. I liked acting, and I enjoyed taking on characters and giving them my own twist, as the strict school mistress or head girl. I was certainly not your typical mistress; an older matron type, or a raven-haired PVC-clad beauty working from a dungeon, I was small, blonde, and busty, working from a domestic setting with a hockey bag of implements and the knowledge and skill to create a character and improvise a setting. But I was a hit.

Join us as we interview L.M. Somerton.

 

What qualifies you to write BDSM?
I am lucky enough to be a previous winner of the Pauline Reage novel award from the National Leather Association: International. The NLA:I is a leading organization for activists in the pansexual SM/leather community and their annual awards are given for excellence in literary works in SM/leather/fetish writing.

It wasn’t until I entered the awards that I researched a little about Pauline Reage. Fifty years ago, an extraordinary pornographic novel appeared in Paris. Story of O is described by British journalist John de St Jorre as portraying “explicit scenes of bondage and violent penetration in spare, elegant prose, the purity of the writing making the novel seem reticent even as it dealt with demonic desire, wLM Somerton, BDSM Writers, BDSM romance, fetishes ith whips, masks and chains.”

I can only imagine the reaction seventy years ago to such work. Pauline Reage, the author, was a pseudonym, and was thought by many to have been a man. The writer’s true identity was only revealed in the 1990’s when intellectual Dominique Aury (born Anne Desclos) acknowledged that the fantasies in the Story of O were hers.

I am often asked what qualifies me to write MM BDSM. I think Pauline Reage helps to answer that question. It doesn’t matter what you look like on the outside, however demure and academic you might appear, there is no such thing as being ‘qualified’. As Pauline Reage recognized, the power of sex makes compelling reading and if I can get even a little of that power on to a page, I’ll be happy.

Can you tell us about your writing process; for example, do you write an outline first?
I carry a notepad around to scribble down plot ideas when they strike me. I rough out a plot line but don’t plan too rigidly because sometimes the story takes its own direction, but I usually have a firm ending in mind. I often write scenes several times before I’m happy with them and as a result, I’m painfully slow.

LM Somerton, BDSM Writers, BDSM romance, fetishes Would you change anything in your life to make writing easier?
Give up the evil day job. Definitely. And persuade the cat that my laptop is not his bed.

Do you write one novel at a time or do you move between works in progress?
I usually have two or three stories on the go and write where the mood takes me.

What motivates you to write?
It’s my relaxation and addiction. If I have a few spare minutes I can’t resist tapping out a few lines.

 

L M Somerton lives in a small village in the English countryside, LM Somerton, BDSM Writers, BDSM romance, fetishes surrounded by rolling hills, cows and sheep. She started writing to fill time between jobs and is now firmly and unashamedly addicted.

She loves the English weather, especially the rain, and adores a thunderstorm. She loves good food, warm company and a crackling fire. She’s fascinated by the psychology of relationships, especially between men, and her stories contain some subtle (and not so subtle) leanings towards BDSM.

Laura Antoniou

Laura Antoniou
Laura Antonious  talks frankly about BDSM and the vast misconceptions most individuals have about those who embrace this erotic lifestyle.

Feel free to pose a few of your own questions for her below.

What is your aim when it comes to writing about BDSM? What do you hope people get out of reading your books?
I want to write a good story, and I hope readers get a ripping good read! I hope they enjoy the characters and the trouble they get into and the emotional and philosophical decisions they have to make. And I hope they like the fantasy world I created and enjoy imagining what it would be like to adventure in a world like that, whether they like the idea of being served or serving or just being the occasional bystander.

What are some popular misconceptions about people who participate in BDSM?
That we’re intrinsically or situationally damaged – either we’re born injured or handicapped or cursed by these desires, or that we are made kinky by bad experiences. Sadly, Fifty Shades of GreyLaura Antoniou, BDSM Writers Con, fetishes, bondage, Charley Ferrer does support the “only damaged people do SM” meme. But studies within the scene have revealed we are no more or less likely to be emotionally challenged or disabled than the rest of the human population. Which is sad because I really wanted the study to show we’re more creative, saner and smarter. Ahh, well.

What about this idea that you have to be damaged in some way to like it: do you think that’s true?
See the above question. That some kinky people have had bad sexual or emotional experiences only reflects that MANY people experience these things. Frankly, it’s very hard to admit past abuse issues when you’re into SM, because so many people leap to the conclusion, “Oh, that’s why you like to be tied up! Your father called you stupid when you were seven!” It’s nonsense. You might as well conclude that people like to play football because they drank milk as babies. Correlation does not imply causation. There are far too many variables.

But because so many people have experienced some form of abuse or neglect, they can sometimes find a sense of power and security in enacting consensual dramas as adults. They might not want to relive past pain, but instead find ways to create greater trust and intimacy by sharing what scared or hurt them and finding ways for their lovers to help them to feel safe, or powerful, cherished and respected. And there is nothing more empowering to a past abuse survivor than the feeling of negotiating exactly what they want and getting it, completely able to stop anything that isn’t working. It’s not therapy – people who need professional help should get it. But it can be very rewarding and pleasurable.

BDSM Writers Con, Laura Antoniou, kink, fetish, Charley Ferrer
What about the 50 Shades of Grey phenomenon? Is it good that more people know about BDSM through that, or does it paint a very misguided view of BDSM by perpetuating that only those who are damaged in some way will enjoy it?
The main thing people need to realize about Fifty Shades of Grey is that it’s a romance. This is not a portrayal of the modern BDSM scene any more than a romance book about a sexy doctor is about the National Health Service. In fact, the kinky scene doesn’t even exist in those books – other than the damaged romantic hero commenting that she’d be amazed at what she could find on the internet, and suggesting Wikipedia for her research purposes. And this in Seattle, one of the most influential cities for the BDSM community in the US!

Don’t get me started.

Anyway! Most people who read those books have zero interest in doing anything kinky. They are romance readers! They read for escapism, not life modeling. If romance readers read and then ran out to find what they read about, the beaches and docks would be full of women waiting to be picked up by pirates.

And the damaged hero is nothing more than part of the standard romantic trope of “virginal woman secures the love of a bad boy through her virtue.” He is only bad because he had a dark past. Poor, poor billionaire Christian, with the 6-pack abs and the concert-level piano skills, flying his personal helicopter and buying his girlfriend cars and homes! He was abused and neglected as a child, and therefore beats women who look like his mum. But in the end, true love redeems him, and the kinky sex, which he once used to distance himself from women, becomes merely another way he and his wife – and mother of his children – can enjoy their frequent and mutually satisfying sex life. And they live happily ever after, assuming no more of his former girlfriends come after them with guns.
BDSM Writers Con, Laura Antoniou, kink, bondage, fetishes, Charley Ferrer, BDSM writers

This is not good for people like me, who aren’t much into romance novels. But it means almost nothing to people who actually have kinky sex. Sure, a few people will read the books, goggle a few terms, and unlike Anastasia, they will find us! And some of them will come out, buy a sex toy, attend a workshop or a party, maybe even buy one of my books. And of them, a few will stay for a while. But we’re talking very small numbers.

The big change – the one that will count – is how many people will begin to see just how unthreatening the BDSM scene really is. Because right now, all over the world, people are telling their friends and family, “Oh, what I do is sort of like what’s in those books you just read in your book club. But without the stalking and we don’t use zip ties for bondage because they hurt too much.” And their friends are thinking, “Well, sheesh, what’s the big deal then?”

And that is all to the better. People will feel safer “coming out” as kinky when they know their grandma has those books on a shelf. And it will be harder to paint us as rare, dangerous deviants when everyone knows mum has those books on her kindle.

How does a book like 50 Shades differ from one of your books?
I do not write romances. My books are not about one couple, fated to get together and stay together forever in domestic bliss. Mine are about a larger cast of characters, with only a few staying from book to book – it’s more in the style of an old fashioned family saga. The setting is what matters, plus a few core characters and their arcs. There are romantic aspects to my books, but no happily ever afters. Just an occasional “happy for now.”

I also write for an audience that is more aware of sexuality and BDSM. Frankly, I find many of the sexual depictions in 50 Shades to be misleading at best or dangerous at worst. Hopefully, the type of people who look to fiction to teach them how to have sex have better examples to learn from. Of course anyone who thinks fiction is any way to learn anything is already operating from a handicap. You might as well read a Star Trek novel to learn jet propulsion.
Laura Antoniou’s publishing career began when she started writing gay men’s smut to promote safer sex practices during the early 90’s. Emboldened by getting paid to do this, she then edited the groundbreaking “Leatherwomen” series, highlighting tales of kinky women. This was rapidly followed by half a dozen other anthologies and the Marketplace series of erotic BDSM novels BDSM Writers Con, Laura Antoniou, Fetishes, kink, BDSM, Charley Ferrer which never reached the sales level of the 50 Shades books, but she’s not bitter. Instead, she wrote the 6th, titled The Inheritor, due to come out in 2015.

In 2013, Laura turned her mind to mysteries and came out with the Rainbow Book Award for Best LGBT Mystery, The Killer Wore Leather. Now that she has achieved almost mainstream success with it, she plans a sequel, to be released via Cleis Press. She is also the editor for Best Lesbian Erotica 2015 and is planning many other writing and editing projects in order to fulfill a lifelong dream of actually making a living on this sort of thing.

Daisy Philips

Diane Leyne 3 Crawl for Me Daisy Philips

Meet author, Daisy Philips.

Below are a few questions we had for her. Feel free to ask a few of your own.

 

 

How did you start writing? 
I’ve always been an avid reader and the advent of the eReader has just fed on my addiction.  Like many readers, I always wanted to try my hand at writing, but the idea of plotting a 70-80,000 word book was intimidating, especially with my demanding day job.  When I realized that ePublishers accepted 20,000 word books, I finally gave it a try, and 20+ books later, I’m still writing.

Why BDSM books?
That’s hard to say.  Something about the books I read featuring BDSM just called to me.  I love the interaction and the communication and the trust it required.  And BDSM ménages are really hot.  🙂

What do you Daisy Philips 1like to do besides write?
I love to travel.  I’ve visited over 20 countries including Egypt, Kenya and Thailand.  My absolute favorite holiday was the two weeks I spent in Northern Thailand as a Volunteer Elephant Helper and Elephant Nature Park.  I also enjoy photography and have even had a photo used by MTV.

What’s coming up?
I currently am writing books 4 & 5 for my Dave & Lida series. Dave and Lida were high school sweethearts.  They are now in their mid 30s with 3 children and have decided to put the excitement back in their marriage with a little BDSM role play.

What names do you write under?
Diane & Daisy.  As Diane Leyne, I write exclusively for Siren/Bookstrand.  As Daisy Philips, I write for Evernight Publishing and hope some day soon to self publish.

Daisy Philips was born in a small town in Nova Scotia and grew up in Toronto where she still lives. She loves to travel (visited 20 countries and counting) and photography. She likes writing books with the kind of strong heroines she enjoys reading about. She currently have four series as Diane Leyne (3 BDSM: Club Libertine, Libertine Island and Satisfaction Texas and 1 paranormal: Call of the Wolf). And one book as Daisy Philips:  Dave & Lida.

Susan Arden

SUSAN ARDEN, BDSM Writers Con, kink, bondage, fetishes, bdsm romance 

We had a few questions for Susan Arden. I’m sure you may have a few of your own.

 

Where is your interest drawn from to write romance?
The potent expression of love and resulting tension are volatile. Driven. The result captivates my imagination more so than any other plot point.Susan Arden, BDSM Writers Con, bondage, BDSM erotica, BDSM romance, Charley Ferrer

How do you define love?
The ultimate expression experienced between two, yet allows each to thrive to their fullest potential as individuals.

Why the interest in erotic romance?
As a past teacher of biology, the body has always hooked my desire to learn and consider. Becoming a yoga teacher, proxemics enthralled me and sensuality is a natural expression encompassing body, mind, and spirit.

When does one of your story’s take root?
As soon as I can imagine two individuals and their force of attraction and what is holding them apart.

Susan Arden Susan Arden 2grew up in Miami, attending bilingual schools which lends itself to her interest in writing multicultural stories. Previously a teacher in the field of special education and biology, she now writes romance fiction with several best sellers on Amazon. The type of books Susan writes: erotic romance within subgenres including contemporary, Western, fantasy/paranormal, and new adult fiction. She lives in TN with her husband and several pets (furry to scaled), and is also a mother to three college students. After having neurosurgery and complications, Susan found pain relief in yoga. So much she became an RYT200 (Yoga Alliance), specializing in vinyasa flow for those with health concerns.  Catch Susan at: susanarden.blogspot.com

Tessie Bradford

Tessie Bradford, BDSM Writers Con, kink, BDSM romance, kink, Doctor Charley Ferrer,

We had a few questions for Tessie Bradford about her writing and her life. Below are her answers. Feel free to ask a few of your own.

 

How do your characters enjoy their playtime? Rough? Playful? Tender? All of the above?
Definitely all of the above! When I decided to finally throw my hat into the ring of writing erotic romance, it was with a no holds barred attitude. A bit of pain combined with an interesting array of toys never fails to intrigue me. Humor is mandatory. If you can’t laugh and be playful with your partner or partners, then something very important is missing. Tender? Without a doubt! A loving, happily ever after conclusion is the payoff.

What’s the most challenging part of writing erotic romance? Tessie Bradford, BDSM Writers Con, kink, BDSM romance, kink, Doctor Charley Ferrer,
When writing sex scenes, I not only have to be in a certain mind-set, but there can be nothing, and I mean nothing of a distracting nature going on around me. If my hubby and adult daughter are at home, I ‘announce’ my intent, and they know unless the police, a trip to the hospital, or fire extinguishers are involved, they’d best not disturb me!!

What is your writing process? Do you outline? Set specific hours?
No, I don’t outline or even jot down notes. I ponder/obsess and lose sleep over characters, plots, settings, conflicts etc. in my head until I feel ready to start typing. There’s no set schedule of when, or how much I write at any sitting; I just have to work it in around my full-time day job, family and life.

What role, if any, does your significant other play in your writing career?
My hubby of 27 years heads my Research and Development Department!!! Seriously, he is involved in every aspect of the process. Together we flesh out characters, plot, emotions, dialog and many times, physics. He listens patiently when I babble on about minutia, and talks me off the ledge when I experience my requisite meltdown over meeting a deadline and whether my work is worthy of publication.

Tessie Bradford, BDSM Writers Con, kink, BDSM romance, kink, Doctor Charley Ferrer,How do you find ideas for your books? Real happenings? Dreams? A great imagination?
All of the above! I don’t know about the ‘greatness’ of my imagination, but it sure is active. Many of my heroes have come to me in dreams; very, very good dreams! A couple of my stories are based on real happenings and all of my heroines have varying degrees of me woven into their personalities.

Do you have any bad writing habits?
Yes – going for days without doing it, or getting into “the zone” and ignoring my family while I do it.

How has being published changed your life, if at all?
Being published has changed my life in a very profound way. I was 48 years old when I subbed my first book, Ageless Desires. I was both terrified and excited about putting myself “out there”. I never imagined the confidence and sense of self that would come with the experience.

Tessie Bradford, BDSM Writers Con, kink, BDSM romance, kink, Doctor Charley Ferrer,Tessie Bradford is a bestselling author of Erotic Romance who publishes with Resplendence Publishing and Ellora’s Cave. Megan’s Men, book #1 in her Fated Mates of Mesta series, stayed in Amazon’s Top 100 for erotic/sci-fi for over six months and a number of her titles have been bestsellers at ARe and other third party retailers. Her stories focus on journeys of sexual discovery. She loves creating strong independent women who, with the guidance and love of an alpha hero (or two or three), realize and embrace their submissive side. From the Coffee Time Review of Possessing Eleanor, “Ms. Bradford has taken a successful, independent woman and turned her into the perfect submissive without changing Ellie’s personality, something not many authors can manage so easily.”

Susan Wright

Susan Wright, BDSM Writers Con, Charley Ferrer, kink, bondage, fetishesIt’s my pleasure to introduce Susan Wright a major advocate for our sexual freedom and founder of NCSF (National Coalition for Sexual Freedom). Susan is also an amazing writer. Below are just a few questions to help you get to know Susan and her work.

What are you writing now?
I’m focusing on New Adult romance novels right now that involve kink and power exchange. My first two are Role Play and Good Girl, with a 3rd novel in production now: The Exchange. I enjoy exploring the dynamics of a relationship that includes more to sex than physical passion – I like the emotional and psychological aspect where it can be full of laughter and fun, or it can make you question your own reason and make you discover uncomfortable things about yourself.

A lot of your books include BDSM and sexual themes, even the sci-fi and fantasy ones. Why do you like kinky sex so much?susan wright, bdsm writers con, Charley Ferrer, bondage, slave trade
I consider kink to be my sexual orientation. The gender of the person I’m intimate with is not as important as the power role they take on with me. Because I’ve explored this side of myself, and immersed myself in the BDSM communities, getting to know all sorts of kinks and relationships that people can have, I can’t help myself from including it in my novels. I managed to include it even a couple of my Star Trek novels – I wrote Dark Passions 1 & 2 for Pocket Books about the “bad girls” of Trek set in the mirror universe. I made Seven of Nine a lesbian and put her in a relationship with Kira Nerys. Also in the Best and the Brightest, I wrote about the first openly acknowledged gay couple in the Star Trek universe.

Why are you writing New Adult Romances instead of erotica or erotic romances?
I love New Adult romances because they focus on a life-changing moment in time for young people – when they’re falling in love with their partner and resolving issues from their past so they can move into adult life. It reminds me of when I moved to New York City when I was 23, and there was nothing but possibilities, and the only thing that stands between you and fulfillment is yourself. That’s why I set my romances in the city.

susan wright, bdsm writers con, Charley Ferrer, bondage, slave trade
You’ve given hundreds of presentations on BDSM and the law and the media. Are you a lawyer?
No, I’m an activist with over 20 years experience with the kink communities. I started the National Coalition for Sexual Freedom in 1997 while I was doing the NOW SM Policy Reform Project. I realized that our people really needed someone to speak up for them because we are discriminated against in our jobs, in child custody and in criminal settings We still have a long way to go, but books like 50 Shades of Grey have helped by exposing people to kink in a non-threatening way. Persecution has dropped in the past couple of years also due to the strides our country has made when it comes to gay marriage and gays in the military.

Why did you become a kink activist?
This goes back to my writing, actually. I was on the verge of getting my first publishing contract, when I was outed to my editor by another writer. My prospective editor took me to dinner and told me that since I was in a relationship with a couple and exploring kink that I should “date” him, too, while we worked on my book. I refused, and I decided then that I would be out about who I was so nobody could try to use it against me again. I went on to have an amazing career as published author, and I’ve been wonderfully supported by all of my editors and publishers since then.

Susan Wright founded the National Coalition for Sexual Freedom in 1997, a national advocacy Susan Wright, bdsm writers con, Charley Ferrer, bondage, slave tradeorganization for the BDSM, swing and polyamory communities, and currently serves as spokesperson for the organization. She chaired the successful DSM-5 Revision Project, and coordinated the SM Policy Reform Project for the National Organization for Women (NOW) which resulted in rescinding their anti-BDSM policy at their national conference in 1999. Susan has written kinky Contemporary Romance novels as well as Urban Fantasy, Fantasy, Science Fiction and Star Trek books. This USA Today Bestselling Author began her writing career in 1993, and has published more than 30 novels and nonfiction books on art and popular culture with Pocket Books, Penguin Group, St Martin’s Press and Kensington. www.susanwright.info
