The Lady Smut Book of Dark Desires

Thanks so much for having me on your blog today! Now that we’re a month into the new year and some of those resolutions are starting to make us grumpy, what better opportunity to delve into something delicious to take our minds off of our growling stomachs. I’m talking, fellow readers, about kink.

Don’t know much about it? Honestly, before I started doing a bit of research, neither did I. In fact, I felt that I had as much knowledge about the BDSM lifestyle as I do about, say, spark plugs. Or urban planning. But seriously, what’s a little lack of knowledge to stop me from gabbing about a topic? I’m a writer, after all. It’s what I do. So I decided to take the bull by the horns – or, in this case, take the butt by the plug – conduct a bit of research, and share my findings with fellow readers. Certainly I can’t be the only kink novice out there, and no doubt there are many who wish to add naughty to their nookie. So come along, students. Class is now in session.

For the kink philistine who wants to whip herself (heyo!) into shape, it’s best to begin at the beginning and start munching. Turns out, a “munch” in the BDSM world is the place to kick off one’s adventure. It’s an informal or casual social gathering for folks involved in the scene. Munches are the appetizer on the BDSM menu. It’s not so much an educational get together as it is a place to meet like-minded others. However, from what I’ve learned, there are plenty of novices who attend munches in order to familiarize themselves with how the BDSM scene works. If you’re planning to go, be aware of proper etiquette so you don’t wind up getting yourself spanked before you actually want to be. (!) For example, don’t ask someone at a munch what he does for a living, where he works, or any other personal questions that would out him to the outside world. Many people need to keep their kink under wraps from the rest of their lives, so probing into what one does aside from BDSM will win you no fans.

A munch may be directed toward a specific group (just for subs, for example), or might be focused on a topic such as the proper way to dominate. So, OK. You’ve decided you want to attend a munch. Where, oh where do you find one near you? Fetlife to the rescue.

Fetlife is the social network site for the kink-lovin’ populace. They boast a membership of over three million devotees (yowza!) and label themselves as “the BDSM and fetish community by kinksters for kinksters.” There are forums, event listings, advice, photos, and overall general resources for those who want to get their flog on.

In addition to Fetlife, there are bloggers a’plenty who will happily spank you with good advice, such as Jay Wiseman, The Pervocracy, submissiveguide.com, and Bemused Enlightenment, just to name a few.

Perhaps what’s most appealing about BDSM devotees is how non-judgmental they seem to be. It’s an all-inclusive, anything-consensual-goes kind of atmosphere which, when it comes to sex, is something to be appreciated.

My story, Divine, in our anthology, The Lady Smut Book of Dark Desires, isn’t a BDSM story per se, but there is a scorching hot orgy scene at the end in which anything goes — and I like to think that fits in with the all-inclusive BDSM lifestyle approach. My character is a struggling documentary filmmaker who’s been surviving on hard work and crossed fingers for as long as she can remember. She can turn it all around in a single evening, but she can never, ever get back what she has to give up. It’s definitely an enticing yet scary proposition. Will the temptation of having it all be too much to resist? Hopefully you’re intrigued enough to read and find out.

So there you have it. BDSM 101, for the uninitiated. Get out your vinyl suit and join the fun.
