My limited erotic kink series Lesdom Lessons was published in Tantalizing Tales (TT).

Working with the talented staff at TT was a wonderful experience. If you write or read erotica of any flavor, do yourself a favor and head over to Tantalizing Tales.

Showing a complex consensual, pro-social S&M relationship is important to me, given that so much fantasy gets it wrong. In addition, I wrote a primer for those curious about caning. The series is part fantasy, part memoir.

The caning is real. The fiction is I was ever so suave.

About Lesdom Lessons

A young barista, Mia, starts dating an older woman, Avila, who works as a personal trainer. Their relationship evolves into an erotic power exchange, where Avila teaches Mia about the world of BDSM through restraint and caning.

Mia learns the one action and the one word that matter to Avila.

Managing fear was the foundation of her erotic nature. Mia’s willfulness was the real problem. They had discussions before Avila thought Mia was ready. Still, Avila worried she let desire override her judgment. The young woman lying in her bed had made clarity difficult from the beginning.

Lesson 2 | Subspace

Mia learns that pain isn’t Avila’s goal. It’s a tool.

Avila alerted on the sound. It was a unique sound, an expression of deep pleasure. Excruciating pleasure, she thought. She trembled. She had never heard such a sound before, and she wanted to hear it again. She used more arm and drew another wet gasp, followed by something inarticulate.
