Slave auction or public punishment? Thoughts on BDSM …

Hi, friends and readers:

Have a look at this evening’s photo post. Do you find it a bit arousing? And also a little disturbing? I felt both emotions when I saw it. Either it depicts a slave auction, or the young man is due for a dose of public punishment. Either way, he’s not happy. See how red his cheeks are? Wouldn’t yours be, if you were in his place?

The photo reminds me of a book I once read, titled Beauty’s Punishment, a novel authored by Anne Rice, using a pseudonym: A. N. Roquelaure. Anne Rice, of course, is a prolific fiction writer, her books are huge and beautifully written. She wrote Interview With a Vampire, which takes place in New Orleans. A film of the story was later produced.

I thought of Anne Rice when my boyfriend and I recently visited New Orleans; Rice lives there. The film version of Interview With a Vampire stars Tom Cruise and Brad Pitt, when both were quite young. The movie’s pretty sexy, and nicely filmed. Antonio Banderas also appears in it.

I don’t care if you are straight or gay, Beauty’s Punishment has something for everyone. Any man –and many women — will find something uniquely stimulating in the book’s passages. Be forewarned: it’s not a story for the squeamish. Here’s a link to where you can buy the book:

I think it’s interesting how people are fascinated by BDSM. The BDSM stories I have written have always sold briskly. I’m not sure why. You can read one for free: Closet Case. Just click on the cover in the sidebar at right. It’s an interesting little tale. There’s something sexy about totally controlling another person, or completely submitting to his/her will. I won’t say I’m a BDSM aficianado, but I’ve had a few interesting episodes.

My boyfriend and I are home from the YMCA, after a nice workout and lap-swimming. He had to work Valentine’s Day, so we’re celebrating the holiday tonight. We’re grilling filet mignon and broiling lobster tails for dinner. Then we’ll head for our local gay club for a few drinks and dancing. It’ll all be fun, and very romantic.

Have a nice Friday night, everyone.
