Ladies and gents of the Hussy Lair, I would love for you to put together a very Smutty welcome to....

Verity Ant!!!!

And please stay tune to the end of the post because Verity has a surprise for us... But you have to read it carefully! Now, let's enjoy the post!

Submitting: Doing that Thing You Don't Want to Do

First, I'd like to thank Cecile for having me here today. I write edgy erotic BDSM romance stories that take no prisoners. It takes courage for a blogger to invite me over.

***Well, let's say that I am not ordinary blogger.... I love taking on challenges!!***
***Welcome to the Lair***

One of the overarching themes of my book, Master's Hunt, and all of my books, is submission. So, how do I see submission?

In most erotic BDSM fiction, submission is primarily about sexual play - it's titillating, sometimes surprising, and usually hot. And it’s almost always about something that the submissive really wants to have done to her, or ultimately enjoys in some way.

But I think that true submission is somewhat different: submission lies in accepting that you may be told to do something you don’t enjoy, and you have to go ahead and do it. For submissives in the real world—and I am one and associate with many, so I hope I have a grasp on this concept—submission is often the bowing to things that take us out of our comfort zone in a drastic way. When your Dominant tells you to do something, the act of submitting is to do it. But what if he tells you to do something you don't like? What if you hate being tickled—really hate it—and yet he wants to string you up and tickle you as a punishment? You might balk, wheedle, complain, but, if you really want to be submissive, you submit. You know it's something you will truly despise, but you do it anyway. Assuming you have a responsible and sane Dominant, he might take you out of your comfort zone, but he won't be asking you to do something that is illegal, harmful or immoral.

That’s how I try to portray submission in Master’s Hunt, where the central love element is a sado-masochistic relationship among one man (the Dominant party) and his two women (the masochistic submissives). Neither of the submissives always gets to do fun stuff. It can get downright uncomfortable for them at times. But because they value submission and they value their ability to give over control totally (which is a courageous thing to do), they do it. They submit. Living up to their end of the bargain is something to be proud of. Their rewards are both tangible and intangible, but the greatest reward they get is the love and respect of their Dom.

To me, submission means doing things you don't want to do because you've agreed to submit to someone. It's an exhilarating and challenging part of a D/s (BDSM) relationship and one that is often misunderstood in fiction today.

I hope you'll take a closer look at submission through one of my books. You might be shocked, you will probably be turned on, but you won't be bored.

  1. I'm a total sub and in a D/s relationship. :) This book sounds awesome!


    1. As a person with personal experience, I suspect you'd find Master's Hunt to be something you can relate to. All the characters are based on real BDSM practitioners.

      Thank you for stopping by and commenting. You're entered in the draw!

  2. Thank you for clarifying something that is a fuzzy area. You are quite right in saying in most books that have bdsm it is more on the sexual gratification for both through some bdsm play. I like what you say!

    1. Thank you, Yazmin. If I've hit on something that resonates with you, I'm really delighted. Glad to see you here.

  3. Thank you for your gracious welcome, Cecile. It's great to be here.

    People might wonder where they can buy the book. :) I'll clear up the mystery. The publisher has all the formats you could want, including Kindle and Nook, so go there for your best copy. I do not recommend using Amazon of B&N directly at this time. (Check the samples and you'd see why.)

  4. Verity, thanks for coming by today! It was a pleasure to have you over!!

    Good luck to everyone! Spread the word!!!!

  5. I would love to read your books. I haven't read any them. They sound very hot. Please enter me in contest.

  6. I would love to read your books. I haven't read any them. They sound very hot. Please enter me in contest.

  7. Thank you, Tore. I write the books to be hot, so if you get one, you won't be disappointed. You're entered in the draw!

  8. I would be a very bad sub, no tickling me! Then again I am not bothered by tickling. i guess I am more a of a dom

  9. I appreciate your more accurate and real-world POV on a real D/s relationship. I think you're right about a lot of fiction portraying it differently. Master's Hunt looks fabulous and I put it on my Kindle wish list!

  10. Thanks for clearing up some misconceptions I had about the D/s relationship, Verity. I've read Master's Hunt and all I can say is Wow! What a cutting edge thrill ride! And the cover is to die for. Here's hoping for stellar sales for a fantastic book.

  11. I am very interested in reading this book. I am not in the lifestyle, but I do enjoy reading a variety of stories about it. I am definitely putting this one on the must read list :)
