Awesome erotica for awesome adults only
Story ideas sometimes come from the strangest places. Dreams, snippets of conversation from movies, a line overheard at a mall. Sometimes what seemed like a throw-away character or a guide character from one story can get spun off into a whole new series of stories.
I started out writing about two people: John and Becca. A mid-thirties couple with a penchant for kinky sex. In most ways, they were just regular folks doing regular things: he was a programmer, she was a graphic designer. Neither of them was a billionaire and likely neither of them would be, but they had each other and enjoyed their play time together. Their first story started with a bet. John lost and Becca got him for 48 hours. She had a great time with him, lots of bondage, lots of teasing. She locked a chastity device on him and sent him pictures and videos, made him watch watch while she masturbated, and so on.
They switch things up, though. She gets tied up and locked in a chastity belt, spanked and teased and so on. All in all, both of them got to have some fun. Their stories culminated in The Cabin where Becca really goes wild with John and the story ends with him staying locked in a chastity cage for another week. At some point, I’ll write the story where he gets out and she gets to have some frustrating fun with her chastity belt.
Jack and Minerva were somewhat similar, though Minerva was much more of the domme and although it was alluded to, we never see her submit to him. They went places I couldn’t really see John and Becca going. John and Becca mostly kept to themselves with the exception of a couple trips to a BDSM club. Minerva was more forceful and Jack loved her enough to put up with playing her games. Minerva also loved to dress him up, something I couldn’t really see Becca doing.
Minerva and Jack’s cross-dressing stories were more born out of the idea that when we love someone, really love them, we’ll move Heaven and Earth to make them happy. So, when she puts him in lingerie, dresses, and heels and makes him get her ice cream or walk home gagged and cuffed, he does it not out of some sense of a deep-rooted need to be feminized, but because he loves her enough to let her control him. I never really explored her reasons, but she always just struck me as a woman who wanted to be in control.
Selena Reed and Jack Crow were a different breed entirely. Those two were created for a story I wrote for an anthology. Secret Lives is still available (only $0.99!). We started with a picture and wrote from that. The picture was a young woman looking in the mirror. In her room, she’s a sweet young thing in a school-girl outfit. In the mirror she’s a tough woman in leather. I went a little more literal than the rest of the authors. Of all the characters I’ve written, those two have the most promise for an exciting story. Expect that one sometime mid next year or so.
I went back to Becca and John for Office Party, another story for an anthology. The idea there was holiday themed erotica. I wanted to take them both back to an earlier point in their lives and see what it would be like for them to get really bored at a party and start turning each other on rather than listening to some idiot drone away. Office Party was also the first time Becca tried handcuffs and I wrote the story in 3rd person rather than first so I could explore both their feelings. I like the way it came out.
Along the way I toyed with different ideas; Minerva’s a witch (picked up from a throw-away line about her green eyes in The Punishment), an obsessive ghost in Josephine, and now a dominatrix and a Senator. The dominatrix is Mistress Lisa, a character who popped up in the BDSM club scenes in Becca’s Birthday and Back to the Club. Mostly I write about characters who are intimately involved with each other, so it was interesting to write The Submissive Senator where Lisa and the Senator don’t have an emotional connection beyond a client interaction. I also liked the idea that once a year this tough dominatrix would want to experience life from the sub side; think of it as career building. Of course, she’s married, and her husband is going to spend the week dominating her. Look for the Mistress Lisa menu links at the top. I’m working on her third day of submission right now.
So, back to the point about where story ideas come from. I stumbled across this picture this morning and think I have an idea brewing.
There are some more great game to pulp novel covers here.
I think I’m going to spend more time this year writing some action-packed erotica. Tough-guys and women who can bend reality, tough-as-nails women who hunt bad guys, things like that. I’m sure I squeeze in some more femdom, and some characters will pop up in Jack and Selena’s story, but there’s a whole new world to explore and a whole new year to do it in.
Happy 2015, folks.
