Justine Elyot's Kinky Wife!

Ah, wouldn't we all like one? A kinky wife or a Justine Elyot... not sure which ... here is a little bit of Justine for you anyway, you lucky lucky readers. Erotic fiction and Real People:

Three Dimensions – Inside and Outside the Bedroom

It's lovely to be here with Vida – I'm very pleased to be visiting her today. Thank you for having me!

I've come to talk about my new novella, Confessions of a Kinky Wife, and I'm ruminating today on the subject of realistic people in erotic novels. I mean, we've all read the stories – many of them very arousing – where the characters…aren't. They are avatars, standing in for various kinds of sexual partner. Fantasy dom, fantasy sub etc. etc. I've written a few myself. I don't have anything against it at all.

In a novel, though, or a longer story, I want a deeper level of investment in the people I'm reading about. I have to know what they do for a living, what they do for fun (apart from the obvious), whether they worry about money, what they want from life. My kinky wife is more than kinky and more than a wife – she's a person.

I might not say too much about her work or her favourite foods or authors, but she has them. She's a well-meaning, good-natured type, but she's no paragon. When she gets tired she gets tetchy and snaps at her husband. So far so conventional – but her idea of self-help for the improvement of her temper isn't!

Here's the blurb:

Is it possible to be a confident twenty-first century woman and submit to your lover?
It's difficult, as a modern woman, to admit that you want your lover to punish you. Not just a fun spanking in the bedroom – real punishment.
Philippa knows what she wants. She wants her police officer husband to take her in hand.
But how do you ask your lover to hurt you? And, if they're willing, how do you make sure that being taken in hand doesn't get out of hand?
Philippa and Dan explore the secret world of Domestic Discipline. Perhaps it will suit them, perhaps it won't. But they mean to find out, one way or the other.

It's available from lots of places – one of those is Amazon
