Awesome erotica for awesome adults only
The coolest thing about being an erotica writer is it gives you a chance to really plumb the recesses of what turns you on. Human sexuality is a terribly convoluted thing and, much to the chagrin of some of the more conservative elements of our culture, there is no single element that everyone can point at and say, “That’s hot.”
Well, except for me, of course. And all of you.
I’ve written a lot about bondage and submission, both tying and being tied. It’s a subject that holds a certain fascination for me. I like the idea of giving up control from time to time and having control ceded to me from time to time. When you dig through all the ropes, gags, plugs, and various toys, that’s what bondage is really about: submission. And, contrary to what certain authors might imply in their best-selling novels, the desire to have control or cede control doesn’t mean there’s anything wrong with you. Submission can be a hell of a fun thing and, if you pay attention while the ropes are tied tightly around your wrists and that big ol’ ball gag is firmly stuck between your teeth, you might gain some insight into what your partner likes. Then, later, when there are no ropes you can use that knowledge and say something like, “See, I just ate you out for an hour and you didn’t even have to hogtie me to get it.”
Because, at least in my world, the ropes come off.
If all bondage is inherently about submission there must be other ways to achieve that oh-so-delightful feeling of being out of control, too. Some people might panic in the ropes but still feel the burning desire to be controlled, others might just not like the technical aspects of delicately tying a rope harness on their partner, taking care to bind her breasts just so and make sure there’s just enough tension on the rope between her legs that she can’t forget about it, but not enough to push her over the edge. Personally, I like tying the rope harness and I like making sure the rope is tied just so. Some folks have found that by simply putting their man in a dress and heels they’ve confined him to house just as much as a pair of handcuffs. Others have found a kind of hypnosis, when paired with a natural desire to submit, can work wonders.
That’s where A. Regina Cantatis and a delightful little story called What Happens in Decon comes in. Regina has given us the story of a space captain who craves a bit of peace and quiet so she can happily submit in peace. It’s a story of bondage without ropes and domination without chains. This is the world of hypnotic submission and, man, it is a deep kind of submission. There are some twists in the story, but the general gist follows a woman in a position of power (spaceship captain!) who just wants to let herself go. It’s her kink and by God she’s going to enjoy the little free time and privacy she has.
Depending on your point of view, the story either ends on a happy note or a pretty devastating one and the ambiguity of it is left entirely up to the reader and his or her own proclivities.
That right there should be enough to make you want to read it. If you’re into bondage and want to see a whole new level of submission, check out What Happens in Decon. You won’t be sorry.
