Round Table Discussion: Anal Punishment/Play
I know that I'm really late to this blog hop, but I figure better late than never. Actually, I wanted to hear Katherine Deane's thoughts on this topic and she suggested that I write my thoughts as well. So, I figured I couldn't ask someone else to do this and not do it myself. So, here we are.
Anyway, the topic for the round table today is anal punishment/play. The questions and my answers are below. Enjoy!
1.) Does anal punishment/play in a spanking romance get you all hot and bothered or is it a definite scene skipper for you?
It depends how the scene is done. I do like reading anal play scenes because I think that it is the best way for a submissive to be stripped of her control. I love that closeness that the two characters share and the complete trust that submissive has to have to let her Dominant take control of her like that. That gets me all hot and bothered.
If an anal punishment/play scene is done and it's all about the dominant proving his dominance over the submissive or if it's non-consensual then I generally skip it. To me, those aren't the reasons to have anal sex. But, each to his own.
2.) What elements do you like?
Again, I like the closeness that readers can almost feel between the two characters. Physically, I love reading about a Dominant preparing his submissive. Normally, the submissive fights her feelings towards this and I love reading about the Dominant getting her past her fears about anal play and teaches her to accept it and admit what she likes.
3.) What elements are turn offs to you?
If something and it doesn't matter if it's anal punishment/play or something else, I hate non-consensual acts. Personally, there is nothing that turns me on about one person saying "No!" and the other person enforcing what they want on the person objecting. That's wrong. Again, that's just me, some people may like that.
I'm also not a fan of Dominants who just use anal play/punishment to establish their dominance over the submissive. The submissive is letting you perform this act, the dominance is already established. There is no need to do this action just for the sake of saying, "That's right. I'm the dominant one here."
4.) Do you personally add this element to your stories?
I do add anal play in to my story. I do it because I think that it's the ultimate way for my characters to show that they trust one another. For example, from my first book published, Little Samantha's Choice, Jackson and Samantha had to go through many obstacles to get to the point where they really trusted one another after Samantha makes her discovery. For me, writing that those two had anal sex, it's my way of showing that Samantha submits to Jackson and trusts him fully to not hurt her and to take care of her.
Also, as most of you know, who have read my writing, I'm a very sweet writer. I love writing about the preparation that the Dominant takes to get his submissive ready for the act. Then having the Dominant talk to the submissive about overcoming her fears and then performing the act itself. Then having the Dominant take special care of the submissive afterwards. To me, anal play is one of the best ways to show readers that two characters fully trust and love one another.
