BDSM fiction; why does it sell so well?

Hi, friends and readers:

Do you find this evening’s photo post arousing? That’s not Zac Efron with the tape on his mouth, is it?

Whenever I check the Amazon site for numbers on the sales of my books, I’m always amazed to see the anthology titled Spank Me Once doing so well. I mean, it was first published over two years ago by Noble Romance Publishing. It’s a four-story anthology, each story written by a different author. Mine’s titled Serving Lisa. 

Here’s the blurb for my story:

Lane’s a college student with a secret: he needs discipline from a mature woman. Visiting a website called Cruel Mistress, he finds a listing by a German couple, Lisa and Andreas. They seek a young man who “craves naked discipline” to “service the lady of the house.” When Lane responds, his life is quickly transformed in ways he’d never imagined.”

The Spank Me Once anthology continues to sell briskly; I’m not sure why. My story contains both hetero and gay sex, a mix which gets certain folks excited. But I can certainly tell you, Serving Lisa is not for the squeamish. Here’s what one reviewer had to say about Serving Lisa: 

“The next story stands out because it is out of my comfort zone completely. This is Serving Lisa byMartin Delacroix.  This is the story of a married couple looking for a slave boy. And they mean slave when they say slave. Total humiliation, eating out of dog dishes, having dog food, and being totally humiliated is the slave’s kink.  This was not the story for me. I was pretty much over this story after two paragraphs. But if you like dark, dangerous humiliation, you should read Serving Lisa–it has it in spades.”

Last night, our dinner out with friends was even more fun than usual. A fifth guy joined us, a good friend, and he chose a super Mexican restaurant on the beach, where they serve good margaritas and excellent food. They had Dos Equs on draft, too. Muy bueno!

I’m up relatively early this morning. I took my usual walk on the shore, followed by a pleasant swim in the Gulf. I’m showered and shaven and I’m enjoying my breakfast as I write this. It’s possible my boyfriend and I will visit the east voast for a surfing session. All depends on conditions over there.

Have a nice Thursday, everyone, wherever you are.
