Several years ago, my short novel, Passion Play was released. The book had a BDSM theme. 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?
“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 sold briskly upon its release, and it still continues to sell today. I have often asked myself, “What is it about the BDSM scene that fascinates people so much?” And I think it has a good deal to do with dominance, the desire to exert utter control over another person, or submission, the urge to surrender one’s will to another. There is, no doubt, a sexual edge to BDSM, as it gets some people’s hearts thumping. And hey, as long as it is consensual, who is it harming?
Anyway, if you want to check out Passion Play you can find it here:
It’s a beautiful day, here on the island. The sun is shining and we’re headed for a high of 72 degrees F. I normally go to the YMCA on Fridays, but the weather’s so nice, I think I will skip the “Y” today. Instead I’ll take a three-mile walk after lunch, and then take a two-mile run around four PM. I have some errands to run in between, so my afternoon will be busy.
Tonight I plan to trim my Christmas tree, my first in two years. Have a nice Friday, everyone. 🙂
