Given to the SavageToday, I have the great pleasure of hosting spanking romance author and friend, Natasha Knight, on my blog. Now, I’ve known Natasha for a while – we’ve drunk many a Martini whilst typing increasingly garbled DM messages about life, sex and writing to one another – but this is the first time I’ve ‘officially’ had her as a Chintz Special Guest Star – cue lights, fireworks and excited fanfare. Shame on me. However, with the somewhat turbulent release of her latest book, Given to the Savage (read on to find out more about what I mean by that), I thought it would be the perfect time to pull her behind the curtain and pepper her with deep, probing and intelligent questions. Oh, all right. Pervy, inappropriate questions. That’s why you visit this blog, right?

 

Jane: I’m going to let my smutty self jump right in: your favourite sex scene from Given to the Savage and why?

Natasha: I’m laughing. I liked them all…it’s kind of hard to choose just one actually. OK, I’m going with the sex scene where Silas and Rowan are outside of his house very early in their relationship. I’ll try to explain why without giving too much away.

Both Silas and Rowan are forced into this situation and neither is sure of the other. Rowan is a breeder and with the setting as it is it gave me some freedom to write the scene exactly as I wrote it without having to soften or sugar coat anything.

The two are attracted to each other physically, and Silas, although he is portrayed as this mercenary type man – or the reader is made to believe that by some of his earlier actions – he is not, but his struggle comes when he wants to be that, he wants to not care, he wants to do what he has to do in order to get what he’s been promised by The Colony. I think this made quite a few people dislike him actually and this scene is a good example of how he turns his human emotions off in order to alleviate himself of his guilt as he takes Rowan whether willingly or unwillingly.

There’s this line in this scene where Silas says:  “You come every time I fuck you, you’re wet every time I punish you.” He’s trying to dehumanize her, make her into just a breeder in order to make what he is doing ok, even as he knows she is as human as he. I want to say poor Silas as I write this but I know most readers were thinking poor Rowan… This scene is a favorite because it’s hard and it’s raw. Silas is taking, he’s not making love to her, he’s fucking her and he’s showing her he owns her and the fact that what he said is true, that she’s wet ever time he punishes her and that she comes ever time he fucks her, it kind of confuses what happens, makes the situation more difficult in a way.

Hair

Some time back, I was participating in an online discussion about various methods of hair removal and what I found to be most effective. This is a topic I know a lot about. (As someone with pale skin and dark hair living in a society that’s increasingly obsessed with removing it from nearly every part of the female body, it’s been part of my consciousness for as long as I can remember.)

I do find it amazing that something that grows so naturally, something that is so normal, has the ability to provoke such strong reactions in people. You only have to visit the very awesome Hairy Legs Club Tumblr blog to see just how many women are struggling to gain acceptance when they don’t conform to the hairless standard.

Family members telling girls that their body hair is ‘unsanitary’ and ‘unclean’ and forcing them to remove it.

“Women, female, feminine…. show me what those words mean to you.”

As you may have deduced from the quote above, the Sinful Sunday prompt for this month is ‘All About the Women’. I had a number of ideas for this brief but, in the end, I decided to shoot a picture that reflected facets of me, Jane, and my own personal femininity.

A woman who likes to wear pearls (of all kinds).

A woman who likes to wear skirts and twin-sets (often with something a little less traditional underneath).

A woman who is, well, a woman despite her boyish shape. Continue reading

Crawling on the floor

I’ve been doing a fair bit of writing and plotting over the past few weeks (hence the lack of curtain twitching) and today I’d like to share with you a little snippet from a tale I first introduced in my Wicked Wednesday post, Beginnings, a few weeks back. The second in a set of three stories that I’ve written exploring mild erotic humiliation, Diana’s been very enjoyable to pen, although I did have to do a bit of creative editing when I realised I’d married a violet wand and a piece of metal in a way that I shouldn’t have. (Oh, the perils of writing about electrical play!) Anyway, happy Friday and I hope you enjoy this little taster.

Vanilla

Ironically, I adore the taste of vanilla. I must confess, though, that I don’t really like the term as it’s applied to sexuality. To me, it suggests that those who aren’t kinky are engaging in ‘plain’ or ‘run-of-the-mill’ sex – and that, in my opinion, is just wrong.

Sex is fundamentally about pleasure and, whatever your ‘flavour’, if the sex you’re having leaves you happy, fulfilled and satisfied, it should never ever be considered boring. Continue reading

Sexy bargains from around the Interweb.

*Please note: at the time of posting, the eBooks listed below were free, however you should definitely check that’s still the case before you go wild with the ‘Buy Now With One Click’ button.

 

Coco de Mer – Oh, Pants!

There is a seriously good sale on at Coco de Mer, my lovelies – up to 70% off certain styles.  If you’re a pants-slash-lingerie fan (as I am) and you’re of the opinion that less is more – particularly around the ‘cheek’ area – you need to run over to their site ASAP. Personal favourites? The hot (HOT) pink Aveta Ouvert for £21.00 and the Lascivious Bang Hook and Eye suspender belt for a mere £33.00. (I know suspenders aren’t technically ‘knickers’ but this get-up is seriously, seriously sexy, more of a playsuit, and it shows a whole lot of flesh.)

A ‘Muscle Purse’?

Vagina MundeTitle: Vagina Mundi
Author: Wol-vriey

I have no idea what this is actually about, even after reading the blurb below, but it sounds very wacky and original. And it’s free, free, free so what’ve you got to lose?

“Rachel Risk is a professional thief with super-strong hair that can stretch like tentacles to manipulate objects.

Ashley Status has both a digitally augmented brain, and ‘muscle-purses’ in her arms and legs in which she stores inflatable objects—cars, guns, rocket launchers, etc .

When Raye is framed as the fall girl in a jewel robbery, the pair flee Chicago’s vengeful robot gangsters and take refuge in the Hotel Bizarre, where the gorgeous ‘vagina singer,’ Femina, is performing for a week.

But the Hotel Bizarre is even stranger than its name suggests, and very soon Raye and Ash are involved in an deadly adventure, a struggle for survival the likes of which they’d never imagined possible—with loads of deviant sex, drugs, music, and violence at every turn.

And just what is the old woman in the skin desert really doing with all those cats glued to her walls?

Vagina Mundi—a Bizarro Hymn in praise of WOMAN!”

The Highlander's PrizeTitle: The Highlander’s Prize
Author: Mary Wine

This one I’m posting largely because I know there are a few of you out there on an Outlander jag. If you’ve no idea what I’m talking about and have not yet seen the trailer for the new Starz series based on Diana Gabaldon’s popular book series, may I direct your attention to the clip below. In episode one, I can confirm that there’s a hot, rough Scotsman in a kilt who threatens to throw a woman over his shoulder if she doesn’t come willingly. Enough said.

“BASTARD ROYAL DAUGHTER, PAWN IN A DEADLY GAME

Sent to Scotland to be the king’s mistress and produce an heir, Clarrisa of York has never needed a miracle more. But the brusque Highland laird who kidnaps her is a bit too rough to be considered divine intervention.

HE’LL DO ANYTHING TO THWART HIS KING

With rival lairds determined to steal Clarrisa from him and royal henchmen searching for her all over the Highlands, Laird Broen MacNicols has a mess on his hands. Worse yet, there’s a magnetic attraction between them, although he’s betrothed to another. But even an independent–minded lady like Clarrisa knows that a Highlander always claims his prize…”

I’ve been editing like crazy these past two weeks. Engaging in a veritable red pen/tracked-changes orgy in an effort to streamline and generally improve 60,000 words of smut. Culling unnecessary ‘frequent offenders’ (begone, evil ‘that’!) and chopping the heads off erotic clichés. But holy moly. Do you know how many of the latter there are out there? So many sexual metaphor bear traps, people. So many! And as I identified various offending turns of phrase (both in my work and while researching the work of others) I got to thinking about what some of these would look like when taken, er, literally …

 

‘Exploding’ Cock

A condition that commonly affects male protagonists at the point of orgasm, e.g. “his cock exploded”.

Exploding Cock

‘Dripping’ Pussy

I’m actually surprised there’s not an emergency call-out service for this one. The potential for turned-on women flooding houses seems rather alarming. Continue reading
