To enter for leave a comment with the answer to the question at the end…

So with a new year I’ve decided to get a little more naughty…Is that even possible? Oh you know it is…In the last half of the year I’ve started to reveal more of my BDSM writing. It all started with flash fiction to introduce my readers to the genre since it is something they have not read from me. I wanted to do it gradually and waited till I was ready to expose this work to the world.

It has been a beautiful experience to slowly expose this side of my writing to the world. So far the feedback has inspired me and made me thrilled that readers are embracing this. I know that with the popularity of a certain series people have become more curious when it comes to erotica and BDSM.

Many people still don’t understand what BDSM is about and I hope they take the time to research it a little and get more informed.

I’ve been working on a new anthology collection full of BDSM flash fiction and BDSM/erotic poetry…I love to express myself with words..I don’t care if it is stories or music or poetry.

I’ve decided to write more erotic stories featuring BDSM content. I’ve got so many different ideas to share and not enough me to get it all done…

Here is an erotic/BDSM poem I wrote

Reflections by Savannah Chase

Copyright 2012

Darkness surrounds me
I am blinded
I am bound in place
His hands run over my skin
Fingers slowly embrace my neck
Push my head back
His breath brushes my flesh
He wants me to see
Who I truly am

Callused hands
Heavy breathing
He wants to love me
The way he sees me
Stripped bare
Broken and fragile

I want you to see
His words seep into me
The beauty within you
He frees my eyes to the light
Surrounded by mirrors
Nothing but reflections

Naked and unable to cover myself
Don’t you dare he commands me
I continue to struggle my hands free
No use
Look
Feel
See

Our eyes meet
Fire consumes him
He keeps composed
I see the beautiful you
You are not damaged
He turns my face towards him
I can’t deny my lover
Hunger feeds him
I must open my eyes
Find my own reflection
For now I’m lost to his touch

 

I wanted to ask you as  a reader, are you into the BDSM genre? What is your opinion on the spike in popularity in the genre?

There are aspects of the BDSM genre that I am into and think are erotic. Bondage, role playing, and light dominance/submissive is exciting and different. I think the problem with people not accepting this genre all the time is because some times people take things to far, where they discribe pain or humiliation or complete dominance. Just like anything else it needs to be done slowly and with the thought of both experienced and inexperienced parties feelings in mind.

There’s a lot of BDSM out there in the book world right now, and not all of it is done well, unfortunately. But there are many who also get it right, and when you find a gem it can be great reading.

Loved the poem, Savannah!

DonnaJanuary 2nd, 2013 at 7:58 am

I’m not particularly into BDSM. I thought I would give it a shot by reading Fifty Shades of Grey, but that book was so horribly written that I haven’t read another one since. I’m not saying that I wouldn’t give it another try, but I would need that extra push.

Lolita @ Taboo ReviewsJanuary 2nd, 2013 at 8:03 am

BDSM is my favorite erotic fiction genre. The spike in popularity is interesting, because it’s been around long before 50 Shades. I didn’t read that series, so I’m not sure what it was about it that struck a chord with so many.

I like the genre when it’s done right. It can definitely spice the things up!
It’s true that currently everyone and their mother want to add to the genre, but most of the times, they write without knowing the rules and it turns out to be uncomfortable to read and detrimental to the community. I like when it’s done tastefully!

I adore good BDSM, that is a key here good(some authors that shall not be named wrote not so great BDSM and did way better than they should have, just sayin’) I enjoyed your poem a great deal.

I think more people are fascinated by something they think is taboo or kinky and want to read about it then once they do they realize some of themselves in the characters. Happy New Year, Carin

I love the BDSM genre. I’ve been reading it since long before 50 Shades. At first I wasn’t too sure about it (I didn’t love the 50 shades books), but in the past year a lot of authors I’ve read for years have made it big and have big contracts. I love that.

Me personally? I am not into BDSM, I read Fifty Shades Trilogy and was not crazy about it. I like my paranormal romance better. But for others that do like it, that is there choice and as I would not want them to judge me for what I like, I would not judge them for what they like. To each is own!!!
Happy reading and writing*

I’m into some parts of BDSM but not others. I think the genre in general has gotten more exposure but I’m not thrilled that the “Fifty” book is the cause – I feel it’s a poorly written example of BDSM and that there are other more talented writers who’ve been in the biz for years and deserve the recognition.

I like a little bondage and spanking in books, but mostly I love the Paranormal romances. I didn’t care for the 50 Shades books, in fact I didn’t even finish the 1st one. but I think the 50 Shades books are what prompted the spike. Wishing good things and much success for you in 2013.

I like reading about BDSM with romantic elements but I am not so interested in the severe sado-masochism aspect as I don’t personally find that erotic. I have been reading the genre for several decades and am bemused by the recent furor as if this is a new introduction to literature but glad that this gives other very talented authors well-deserved exposure. Happy New Year!

I love the BDSM genre. It makes my life more exciting in the end.

As for why people are letting it known that they like it and why it is an exploding genre, well I believe it is because we have become a faceless society through the internet and being a faceless society it is easier to let your true feelings and intents be known.

Thank you for the giveaway.

little bites spread over months and months so I forget the story line. I will pay extra for the whole damn book all at once instead of being dragged over hot coals with my wallet to string out a trilogy (or worse).

I love BDSM as a genre when it’s written well. I wish people would see past the most popular authors though (James, Day etc) and see that there are some real gems out there but that are more under the radar and dwarfed by the fascination with 50 and other similar novels. Cherise Sinclair is one of my all time fave authors in this genre because she creates a good story with the BDSM element in it. They are so good.

I am new to the BDSM genre. I find many aspects of it extremely interesting. I have now read many books on the topic and find that my first ideas of the BDSM lifestyle were completely wrong. I like knowing that there can be an emotional and loving relationship involved. I must say that so far my favorite book is “Brie Learns the Art of Submission” but I am finding many more to add to my list. I have been with my husband for 20 years and we have four boys (ages 4-17) and we enjoy learning new things together.

Jeannie PlattJanuary 3rd, 2013 at 7:03 pm

I would have to say the spike is due to 50 shades going main stream so to say however it has always been there the SDSM genre though it was talked about in hushed tones… I find nothing wrong with it and enjoy the books and sometimes sdsm play in my own house but that is between me and my hubby. People need to understand it is not about it isn’t about degrading or hurting a person it is about giving another person enough trust and knowing they will take care of you and do what you enjoy safely.

I have read BDSM before the FSOG phenomenon. I think you either enjoy reading these books or you don’t. There are alot of mixed feelings on this subject & I think that if you were raised with an open mind & not that sex or your feelings for it are taboo, you enjoy & get pleasure out of reading this genre. Let’s just say, I’m not getting any complaints from my husband. What I enjoy & take from these books is the trust issues. It’s not about controlling the other, but getting them to use their senses & feel. Thanks for being part of this hop & your giveaway!

Carmen @ Book Me!January 5th, 2013 at 5:34 am

I love it! It’s one genre I simply can’t get enough of! Weirdly my fave sub genre is dubious consent, I’m just weird that way, I guess! ;)
I think the market is booming with BDSM at the moment because of the 50 shades of whatever, but I think it runs deeper than that though. There’s power in sex, always has been, always will be. Nothing new there. But there’s also something liberating in handing over control and taking your pleasure in just being submissive.
As a sex women have been liberated for some time now, we’re treated as equals (most of the time), we have high powered jobs and we’re not afraid of what we want and we still run a tighter ship at home than any man ever could (sorry boys, you know it’s true) but with all the pressure we and society puts on our shoulders we barely give ourselves the permission to just let go. I think BDSM is teaching us to liberate ourselves from the restraints of everyday life!

Whoa! That was intense! Great question! Love love loved the poem! Thanks so much for the giveaway!

I’m definitely into the lighter side of BDSM – the hardcore slavery stuff creeps me out. I think for the non-practicing public, whips & chains, pain & brutality defined the lifestyle. The Fifty Shades books made exploring it more socially acceptable.

I think the huge increase in BDSM book sales is, in large part, due to e-books & e-readers. Besides the ability to purchase and read anonymously, it’s brought indie authors and their wonderful offerings into the mainstream. I’ve read SO many great books that are only available in an electronic format. I can’t imagine what treasures I’d have missed out. You’ll have to pry my eReader out of my cold, dead hands – lol.

Well. That was long winded. Sorry about that.

Thanks for the great giveaway! I love discovering new authors!

While 50 Shades of Grey was not my personal cup of tea, I do really like that it’s made the genre more visible. Its popularity has generated a lot of buzz and introduced new readers. Yay for more books to read!

Thanks for doing the hop!! I really enjoy the BDSM genre. I prefer the dominance aspects not so much the slave relationships. I am more into spanking and light bondage. I have no interest in 24/7 slave stories.

i love BDSM based books, i just don’t like the idea that this genre is being more looked into because of Fifty Shades. That book was…. let’s leave it at that. There are so many great and amazing authors out there who embody BDSM perfectly, it’s an insult to have them compared to EL James’s trilogy. (imo. i know there’s lots of fans out there, but I’ve read better)

Love the poem! I’ve loved BDSM long before the recent trend. I finally broke down and read 50 Shades of Gray, which my mother thought was poorly written, and was sad that so many folks think this is what BDSM is all about! I did read a review where the author stated this was PRETEND and did NOT represent BDSM but seems like not too many folks heard that or listened;)

I don’t mind reading BDSM, but I have never done it in real life. I like the new interest because more authors are starting to write it. Or maybe it is just more acceptable.

I think it can be fun as long as it’s not real torture. The spike is healthy! girlfloyd at gmail (dot) com

I am loving the genre, when I go to book sites, I look to see if they have any available, and am always looking for new authors that write it :)
