Dear Mistress — (Not So) Confused, Sexless Kinkster, Curious, Kink Reader, Deliciously Curvy

Dear Mistress,
I’m confused. Kind of. I’ll start by saying that I’m openly bisexual. I tend to see people as people and not by color, ethnicity, sex, etc. When I initially realized that the BDSM lifestyle was what I was needing in my life, I wanted to submit. I still have the utmost desire to submit, I can’t even explain how badly I want to give myself over to someone body and mind.

Since I’ve been in BDSM though I’ve been topping… but only women. I love the beauty in having a woman submit to me. I’ve become confident in being a Domme. My confusion comes from not having the desire to top a man, only women. And my desire to submit is only for a male Dom, not a woman. I used to think switches were just confused, but here I am…I think I’m a switch? But I’m confused about why I want what I want. Ughhh…help.

Dear (Not-So) Confused,
I read your question several times and I’m impressed by how well you are learning yourself. Being a Switch is a real thing, and I do believe you may identify with that role more than any other. It is not out of the ordinary to feel the desire to dominate some people and submit to others. It’s even common to feel gender-based kink desires.

The first task upon entering into this lifestyle is finding yourself and listening to your inner voice that tells you what you want. You also need to pay attention to how you respond to others. Different people — even different genders — will bring out different emotions in you. Listen to those responses. This is who you truly are. You are unique. Your desires are your own. Being a Switch is a gift. Not everyone is capable of mastering both D/s roles. Bravo!

[Editor’s Note: You’ll want to read Betting on Fate by Katee Robert about a woman who tops women and submits to men.]

Dear Mistress,
D/s does not always have to be about actual sex and/or penetration, correct?

Dear Sexless Kinkster,
110% correct. The D/s dynamic and BDSM activities in no way need to include sexual acts of any kind. BDSM sessions should only include sexual acts if it is what you want and is what you agreed upon in advance. Being dominated by or submitting to someone else doesn’t need to be sexual in nature. If anyone ever tells you that your D/s arrangement must include sex, send them to me so I can set them straight. Your kink is your own.

Dear Mistress,
I have only been with my husband as far as sexually, but I am curious to know what another man is like. I am also finding out more about what I like sexually, and hubby doesn’t seem to agree in those terms. I am at a loss of what to do.

Dear Curious,
This is something that I have been hearing more and more of lately, and it’s concerning to me. Given the recent Fifty Shades of Grey popularity explosion, it seems to me as though women are coming into their own sexually. In some cases, the men are either not on board or are uncomfortable with the changes. I’m not just talking kink; I’m referring to women becoming more sexually exploratory and confident.

I trust you love your husband, so my first suggestion would be to increase your communication. Talk to him. Write to him if it’s easier for you. Try to get him to listen and understand why you have these needs — and that they are important to YOU. He might be scared of leaving the security of his comfort zone.

He might also be afraid that he will not be able to please you. If you are considering bringing a third person into the bedroom, he might be jealous. If he is absolutely not on board with spreading his sexual wings, and you want to save your marriage, my second suggestion would be to consider sexual counselling where the two of you can sit with a mediator and discuss your concerns and fears. However, if the increased communication improves your situation, I would like you to follow up with me so we can work on some suggestions as to how to incorporate new activities into your marriage. I’m anxious to hear from you.

Dear Mistress,
What are your favorite BDSM books, and which fictional mistresses have inspired you in the bedroom?

Dear Kink Reader,
If you haven’t read The Original Sinners Series by Tiffany Reisz, I’m going to get all bossy and tell you to drop what you’re doing and READ IT. Tiffany’s series is, in my not-so-humble opinion, the most all-encompassing kink world in print. It’s a beautiful, well-written story with authentic emotions and characters. You are not only reading about the lifestyle, Tiffany immerses you completely. You must read them in order, and by the time you devour The Saint (5th book in the series), your life will never be the same. The Saint ruined me for all other books. It was like experiencing my own journey all over again. To put it simply…it’s everything.

I’m also just starting Submission Series by CD Reiss, and I have only heard great things. I mean, have you checked out the reviews? I’ll be happy to give you feedback when I finish. Wish me luck!

As for inspirations, I can’t really say that I have been inspired by any character, but I have identified with Soren and Nora from The Original Sinners. I consider them my friends (not weird at all, right?).

Dear Mistress,
I’m very turned on by many of the clothing pieces and accessory items I view in BDSM images, especially leather corsets. Being plus-sized and very curvy, I’m not sure where I can find well made pieces to invest in, but I’d really love to own a few. Thank you.

Angelina Leather Steel Boned CorsetDear Deliciously Curvy,
Aren’t you a polite little thing. I’m with you! I’m seriously turned on by kink and fetish wear. Corsets are a great choice because they are made to accentuate your curves. I’m soft and curvy, and I feel divine in a steel-boned corset. They will change the way you walk and feel. So empowering!

When selecting a corset, quality is key. If possible, stick with lined, reinforced, steel-boned styles. Pay attention to the sizing guidelines on the links I’m providing. Corsets need to fit well for them to not only do their job but to look right. Baby them, and your corsets will give you years of happiness.

Please send an update on how you made out. I’d love to hear from you.

SBC Birthday Giveaway Tiffany Reisz 100Believe it or not, I feel slightly uncomfortable when all of the attention is put on me, even on my birthday. Sure it’s supposed to be the Day of Me! and while I like the new shiny pretties given to me, I’d rather turn the spotlight onto someone else. Someone like Elite Author, Tiffany Reisz.

September 17th is not only Constitution Day here in the U.S. (it’s totally a real thing), it’s also the date in 1976 that I entered the world. Since most people don’t know about Constitution Day and it’s not a holiday with fireworks or general debauchery, I can’t deflect the spotlight as easily as I’d like. So I’m deflecting the best way possible: With a super awesome giveaway from me!

I’m shining my birthday spotlight on my favorite author, Tiffany Reisz.

In my not-so-humble opinion, I believe the Original Sinners series to be quality literature worthy of being Required Reading for all adult readers who are not my mom.

I like to say that the Original Sinners books are “everything,” but what does that really mean? It means just that: everything.

Do you remember way back in high school how your English teacher tried to get you to read into the author’s meaning and see the symbolism used to convey purpose and enhance prose?

Tiffany Reisz does that and doesn’t make it annoying or convoluted like Shakespeare did.

You know how, when you’re reading a book, you like to be kept in suspense, and then you’re let down because you totally called it because it’s totally predictable?

Tiffany Reisz will surprise you four books later when you weren’t even expecting it. Kind of like your last pregnancy.

When you’re reading a series, do you sometimes think the next book isn’t quite as good as the one before?

Tiffany Reisz’s books gets better with age, exactly like stinky cheese.

These books are not meant to be treated lightly, just like none of the characters are given a pass for inexperience or delicate sensitivities.

I want all of you who read this post to read Tiffany Reisz’s books, the Original Sinners. Please? For the good of mankind? Do it for my birthday!

Nelle Says:

Hello again, Nora Sutherlin!

In this five part novella, we reacquaint ourselves with several of the Original Sinners and meet Lance, a former Navy SEAL with some baggage. I enjoyed seeing Dominatrix Nora going about her clients, and I especially enjoy any interaction between Nora and Søren. The Last Good Knight is filled with intrigue and heat. Highly recommended.

BONUS

Theresa Says:

★★★★★

The Original Sinners are back! Nora finds herself alone with no one to beat at the The 8th Circle; sounds like trouble will surly follow. Striking up a conversation with a handsome man at the bar, she has no idea just how much trouble is to come, but this time it’s her heart that’s in trouble.

This is Dominatrix Nora Sutherlin at her very best, and she falls head over riding crop for Lance. As always, our girl has to make choices she’s not happy with. Will she make the choice that makes her and Lance happy?

Dominance and submission, bondage, Nuclear Nora Sex and appearances by our favorite Sinners. I need not say anything else.

We received a copies of this book from the publisher in exchange for sharing our honest opinions.[/box_light]

The Last Good Knight: An Original Sinners novella told in five parts

Part I: Scars and Stripes

It’s lust at first sight when Mistress Nora encounters a sexy newcomer to The 8th Circle. She’s happy for the distraction, since she left her lover, Søren, but her session with Lance is cut short when her boss, Kingsley Edge, reveals they’re all in danger….

Part II: Sore Spots

With a potential stalker on the loose, Kingsley hires Lance as Nora’s bodyguard, but stipulates no sex while he’s on duty. Frustrated by the ex-SEAL’s noble chivalry, Nora is driven to seek release with the one man she’s trying to forget….

Part III: The Games Destiny Plays

Shocked to see Nora’s bruises, Lance is furious that she put herself in danger and demands to know where she got them. As Nora confesses her true nature, she’s equally shocked to learn that Lance has some secrets of his own, drawing them together despite Kingsley’s orders….

Part IV: Fit to Be Tied

With her feelings for Lance warring with her recent encounter with Søren, Nora returns to Lance’s bed and finds herself toying with the idea of…toying with him on a permanent basis. But after she gets a glimpse into his personal angst, Nora realizes she has the power to rescue this white knight….

Part V: The Last Good Night

Now that the perpetrator has been apprehended, Nora sadly acknowledges she doesn’t need a bodyguard anymore. She adores Lance and wants to keep him but is faced with a dilemma—if she uses her connections to help Lance, she’ll have to give him up forever…

About the Author

Tiffany Reisz lives with her boyfriend (a reformed book reviewer) and two cats (one good, one evil). She graduated with a B.A. in English from Centre College in Danville, Kentucky and is making both her parents and her professors proud by writing BDSM erotica under her real name. She has five piercings, one tattoo, and has been arrested twice.

When not under arrest, Tiffany enjoys Latin Dance, Latin Men, and Latin Verbs. She dropped out of a conservative southern seminary in order to pursue her dream of becoming a smut peddler. Johnny Depp’s aunt was her fourth grade teacher. Her first full-length novel THE SIREN was inspired by a desire to tie up actor Jason Isaacs (on paper). She hopes someday life will imitate art (in bed).

If she couldn’t write, she would die.
