Guest Post: “Where There’s a Whip, There’s a Way: Getting In the BDSM Groove” by Lise Horton

Hold Tight Lise Horton

Songs have been replete with kinky references for decades. We may have gotten some of the references, but not others. Some of us may not have clued in to the hidden meaning at all! Like those tunes, the current popularity of the romantic erotic sub-genre of BDSM romance is being devoured by fans, but is everyone out there in fandom getting the full pleasure (pun intended) from these titles? A lot of BDSM lifestyle terminology and references are included and to make sure everyone can squeeze all the goodness out of these love stories, we thought we’d bring you a bit of an overview.

Eden Bradley’s GIRL (The Training House Book One)

In those breathless moments between pleasure and pain lie the most poignant truths…

These books contains material that may be difficult to read about and/or cause triggers for some readers, including consensual non-consent and other scenes that could be disturbing. Do NOT try this at home!

I have signed myself over to The Training House: my devotion, my obedience, my body. It is what I have always yearned for—to lose myself in powerlessness. To be made to. But this place is more than anyone could possibly prepare for, especially the Master of the House. He is too stunning, too commanding, bringing out a yearning for submission in ways I have never imagined, and I am lost in nearly unbearable desire. He uses my body until he brings me to tears, then tenderly wipes them away, enslaving me to him instantly, body and soul. I cannot imagine existing without him, without his wicked touch, his strict and sensual command…

Until I meet another slave, and he changes the game of kink for me forever. How can I decide what my heart wants most, without risking losing it all?

Eden Bradley, who also write as Eve Berlin, has never shied away from intense BDSM sexuality and action in her romances. In the first offering of her new The Training House series, she does not just push the envelope, she rips it wide open, offering up extreme BDSM and kink.

Bradley sets the stage from page one, with a Contract and Terms of Agreement for Servitude which her protagonist, Aimee, has signed. It is blatant. It is slightly terrifying. And it is irrevocable. So we are already on a keen edge as we begin the journey with Aimee when she arrives at The House, where she will be known from the first moment only as “Girl.” What she undergoes and experiences is all the more intense because there is no turning back.
