Romance in BDSM

In Load the Dice, Eric and Jamie navigate their relationship while exploring their deepest desires through BDSM scenes. It sounds so sexual, and it is—but that’s not all there is to it. Above all else, Eric and Jamie’s story is about romance; it’s about how they fall in love.

BDSM isn’t the first thing most people think of when they think of romance. To most people, it’s indicative of sex. But in truth, BDSM can go beyond the sexual content. It’s really about a dynamic, a shift of power that works for both partners. Eric and Jamie exchange power, allowing each to have their own unique roles within each scene, but they have their own unique roles in their romance as well—Eric as the logical and Jamie as the emotional, in parallel to their roles as dominant and submissive. In a way, it’s symbolic of any relationship. One partner is the organized partner, or the fun one, or the wild one. With Eric and Jamie, they complete each other, complement each other—just like a Dom and a sub complement and complete each other in BDSM.

How? By being opposites. The Dom takes control, makes the rules and enforces them. They are in charge, and oversee the completion of a scene. The sub follows the rules and obeys orders (willingly!), participating in the scene according to the Dom’s instructions for maximum fulfillment. The Dom leads; the sub follows. The Dom exercises a carefully granted power; the sub submits to that power. They are complementing opposites, each an equal but different half.

A relationship can be like that too, I think—maybe not exchanging power, necessarily, but each partner utilizing their strengths for the betterment of the relationship. So to me, it made sense to explore a romance in the midst of a BDSM relationship. What more can we want of a partner than to feel completed by them? To feel fulfilled, to be made a better person because of it? Eric and Jamie’s romance is like that.

blurbEric left the BDSM scene years ago because he couldn’t find the right partner, opting instead to meet men in quiet coffee shops and piano bars. But when his friend invites him to a posh hook-up party, he meets first time sub Jamie, who he convinces to detail his sexual fantasies during a passionate night together.

The pair soon embark on a relationship that introduces Jamie to the BDSM scene, and plays out his fantasies one by one. But as they approach the final fantasy, will Eric be able to walk away?

excerptHe crawls onto the bed and straddles Jamie’s thighs, his clothed body barely touching Jamie’s, and Jamie whimpers. “Are you still wearing all your clothes?” he asks breathlessly, and Eric leans down and kisses the top of his spine, letting him feel the fabric of his clothes over his bare body.

“Yes, I am,” Eric says, and Jamie rocks down into the bed.

“Oh god, that’s so hot.”

Eric chuckles, and then sits back up, making sure to keep as little contact as he can.

“I want you to tell me about your fantasies,” Eric says. “For every fantasy you tell me, I will explore one part of your body with my mouth and hands. The more details you give, the more I will pay attention to the spot I’m on.” This gives Jamie just a little bit of control, and lets Eric know the kinds of touches he likes best. Jamie can decide if he wants to keep Eric somewhere or move on—it’ll keep him on his toes, and Eric has one more trick up his sleeve to ensure it.

“But if you stop talking,” he adds, “and you don’t move on to the next fantasy, or tell me more about the one you’re on, you will be punished. Is that understood?”

Jamie whimpers again, nodding.

“I need an answer, Jamie.”

“Yes, sir.”

Eric kisses the top of his spine again. “Good boy. Number the fantasies as you go. You may begin.”
