The world of BDSM. Why does it fascinate us?

bdsm #16Hi, friends and readers:

A few years ago, I wrote a short novel titled Passion Play. It’s a story with a BDSM theme, with vivid details about this subculture, and it has sold very well. Here’s the book’s blurb:

“Reverend Luke helps put on the Passion Play at his church every year. Nearly eighty parishioners get involved, and this year brothers James and Marcus Thibodeaux will be participate. James will play Jesus, but there’s a hitch; he’s deaf, so Marcus will act as translator.

“James is beautiful and young — almost angelic in appearance — and just the person to portray Jesus. Or is he?

bdsm #8“When Reverend Luke begins a sexual relationship with Marcus, he learns things about James that are hardly angelic. Can Reverend Luke convince James to be penitent and worthy of portraying Jesus?”

Passion Play is not a story for the squeamish, but if you want to check it out, just click on the books cover in the sidebar to the right.

I’m not sure why BDSM fascinates people so, but it clearly does. Having complete control over another person’s body can be a power rush. Likewise, surrendering control over your body to another person can certainly be a walk on the wild side. Hey, if it’s what you like and the other person’s a willing participant, I say go for it.

It’s a beautiful morning, here on the island. In a little while I will take Subway sandwiches to a nursing home where I’ll visit a good friend who’s not well these days. I’ve known him forever, and I hate to see him lying in bed alone so much of the time. Call me Saint Martin.

Have a nice Sunday, everyone.
