For this anthology, I am looking for well-written, well-characterized and sizzling hot erotica with a strong femdom BDSM and kink element. I want a clear power dynamic between the Domme and the person (or people they’re playing with) – trust, respect and consent are keywords here. I welcome stories from both the Domme and the submissive’s point of view. Show me Dommes with doubts and imperfections, subs who know what they want and aren’t pushovers, the lighter side, the darker side, the love and trust and fun in the kinky sex these characters share.
I’d like the characters to be diverse in age, gender and sexual orientation (I would definitely welcome stories featuring characters who identify as queer or Trans*), race and experience. A first time sub being shown the ropes (take that as literally as you want) by a caring Domme? Bring it on. Two seasoned players and their day to day lives? Hell yeah. A creative twist on current popular BDSM erotica tropes? Surprise me! I am mainly looking for contemporary settings, but I wouldn’t turn away historical stories or stories set in the future. Send me the story only you can write.
What I’m not looking for: incest, underage sex, rape, necrophilia, bestiality, scat, golden showers.
