BDSMonday - Stereotypes

It’s BDSMonday!

Today’s topic is kinky stereotypes. 

Please note! The items listed below are stereotypes. They are not representative of my thoughts!

Here are a few I know, but I’d love to hear more from you guys:
- men are dominant and women are submissive
- all female dominants are dominatrices/pro dommes. They all look like this: 

- submissives (regardless of gender) are helpless doormats
- female submissives (or all submissives) are just looking for sex/are slutty
- BDSM is always about sex
- switches are just confused
- masochists were sickly as children
- sadists are all serial killers/psychopaths

Before you started reading BDSM fiction, had you heard of any of these stereotypes?
Did you believe any of them?
Were you surprised to find out they weren’t true after you’d started reading the genre?
Did you find out about these (or other) stereotypes through reading?

Blog Tour - Otherworld

Hi, thanks for joining me on my blog tour. My name's Emma Jane and I'm one of the authors of Otherworld.
Archetypal English toff William "Liam" Barnes is in big trouble. He's borrowed money from Irish gangster Davey McGrath with one simple proviso: get the prism from Matthew Luttrell - seducing him if he has to - and bring it back to him. But the prism isn't with Matthew, and Liam makes a decision he can't undo, meaning he's now twenty thousand pounds in debt to a vicious gangster and has no idea where to find the prism.

That is, until he meets stoic Irishman Jim Henvey, the real owner of the prism, who has a cruel demi-goddess of a mother on the warpath for him. Liam and Jim quickly find themselves tied up in each other's messes, and with more than just the mortal world out to get them, is there any way they can find their way out of a battle between dimensions together and still have time to figure out their feelings for each other? Or will they sink deeper into trouble?
Today, I'm going to talk about Liam. Liam is a spoilt young man from a well-off English family. His father, Nicholas, thinks he's a waste of space. His mother, however, dotes on him. Openly gay and not short on confidence, Liam is definitely not backwards at coming forwards. He often speaks his mind and, even more often, acts before he thinks. Impulsive, passionate, and reckless, with a potty-mouth and a knack for inventive swears, Liam both frustrates and delights love-interest Jim. He has a vulnerable side and can be child-like. He thrives on being loved - love for his father and wanting his father's love being his initial drive.
Liam was hugely fun to write and his character formed quickly in my mind. One of my first inspirations for him was Lord Alfred "Bosie" Douglas - Oscar Wilde's lover, but he soon became his own character.
"I suppose you'll be wanting some candyfloss," Jim said, glancing over at him as they neared the entrance. "You look like the type with a sweet tooth."
"Candyfloss makes me horny," Liam said. "If you think you can handle that..."
Jim raised his eyebrows. "That's one way to ruin a childhood treat."
"My dear, everything makes me horny," Liam said, sticking a cigarette between his lips to hide his smile. "Everything."
"I should have guessed," Jim said with a grin. They stopped at a stall, and Jim bought them both a stick of candyfloss. "We're looking for my cousin, by the way. His name's Eoin. Looks like me except with black hair and a bigger nose."
"Handsome," he commented, flicking the cigarette away and peeling a strip from the candyfloss instead. He laughed. "This stuff tastes like shit. Crunchy, sugary shit, I love it."
"It reminds me of being a kid," Jim said, licking his fingers. "I used to save all my pocket money to come here. And if I did run out, I'd, ah, borrow it from some of the less observant patrons."
"You rotten bastard," Liam said, grinning. "I can just imagine it. I bet you looked adorable." They walked past the High Striker, where a weedy-looking man was struggling even to lift the hammer. Liam eyed the guy running the game, checking out his muscular arms, turning to walk backward so he could watch him a little longer.
"Eyes on the road, Buckingham," Jim said, his voice low.
"Look at his arms!" Liam said. "I have a thing for arms." He picked off more candyfloss and popped it into his mouth. "You should have a go at that game, I bet you'd win."

BDSMonday - Guest Post by M. Strange - Coming Out As Kinky

It's BDSMonday! (Last week? Obviously last week never happened, or there would have been a BDSMonday post. *heh*)

Today I have guest post number two from my Sir, and she's talking about how and when to come out as kinky. I've touched on this subject before, but I think it's an important one and it's good to get as many perspectives about it as possible.

So, without further ado:

Antony Love is the quintessential responsible oldest brother of a boisterous, Italian/Irish family, placed in charge at a young age by his parents who are busy running the family business. He manages his siblings with a fair but iron hand, until his life is shattered by personal tragedy leaving him the shell of the man he once was.

When outspoken matriarch Lindsay Halloran Love becomes ill, the youngest brother Aiden shows up at Antony's garage, having dropped out of school (again), needing work and a place to crash. Antony provides both, with three caveats: "Don't smoke in my truck, don't be late for work, and don't mess with my girlfriend."

But Aiden Love, budding novelist, gets one glimpse of Rosalee Norris, young widow of Antony's lifelong best friend and all bets are off.

Set in horse country near Lexington, Kentucky, The Love Brothers Series is a saga of family devotion that runs as wide and deep as the Ohio River--except on Sundays when brothers Antony, Kieran, Dominic and Aiden work out their frustrations on the basketball court, Love brother style.

The Love Brothers: A family saga with humor, heat and heart—not to mention beer, bourbon and basketball.

Cover Reveal - Acquiesce by Cory Cyr

Coming: December 30, 2014
****18+ due to adult language and explicit sexual content*****

Caspian Vance~former child prodigy, now an accomplished professor of human sexuality at twenty-six has it all—an IQ that's off the charts, a stellar career at which he excels, and the drop-dead looks and body that make women spontaneously combust with lust.

He's been studying sex and women's behavior since he was sixteen. When it comes to the science of human lust and the rewards of sexual pursuits, he has all the answers.

There's one thing he knows for sure: "love" has nothing to do with it. 
Sex is a basic, primal human need—love is an unstable, emotional complication. Both are present in a person, but completely unrelated. His own world of logic and fact accepts this truth and now. . .

He's going to prove it.

When Cass takes a sabbatical to research his theory in order to write his third book, he enlists the help of a former lover and now owner of the world's most exotic and secretive male brothel catering strictly to wealthy older women. On this remote Caribbean island, he uses his keen sense of observation and research to prove "love" is merely a series of chemical reactions in the human brain—nothing more.

Nicola Barrington~ had the perfect life, married to her soul mate.Ten years into her one and only relationship, her idyllic world is shattered by the death of her beloved husband. The loss of her "one true love" sends her into seclusion where she spends the next eleven years pining for the man she still loves.

The beautiful heiress, stays hidden away, her only connection to the outside world being being the hired help and her two close friends. Her friends know Nic has much to live for and are eager to see her find love again. . . and if not love, they would settle for her rediscovering the throes of lust.

As her 40th birthday approaches, her two friends succeed in coaxing her out of her emotionally safe haven to celebrate with a trip to an exclusive resort known for "restoring an older woman's brilliant, inner glow."

Caspian’s superiority and logic combined with Nic's innocence and melancholy are on an imminent collision course. Sometimes even a genius has a hard time figuring out a woman.
