I so completely agree with you here. I’m an adult and I can make adult choices. And so can every other adult. And its none of my business what those choices are.

I’m pretty vocal about NOT liking it. But I’m also pretty vocal about it just not being my thing…and I said in my post about it, like, a few times…that I don’t judge people who like it.

You like it. I don’t.
AND THAT’S FINE.

And never once have I ever thought you were judging me or anyone who does like it. Another reason why I love you, alimartell.

Oh SO right there with you on this! Why as women are we so judgmental of each other. I hear that “men do this and that” and true they do but my male friends have always been more supportive of me than my female friends. I have a few females that I can get support from but in the general masses, not so much.

Don’t get me started on the books though. I read the Claiming of Sleeping Beauty when I was an 18yr old virgin. Did I want to be a slave, spanked with mirrors, impaled on statues and have itchy phallus’s shoved into numerous orifices? NO! But it was a story. I recently have gotten into darker taboo erotica that makes FSOG look like a Disney film but what I like about these books is: first they are beautifully written and second they tell adult tales. Some of them go beyond the dom/sub relationship to the Master/Slave one but these are adults who CHOOSE to do this. I consider it the same as what you eat, wear, drive etc. It is a choice by consensual adults. I love to read it but do I practice it? No ma’am. Will I continue to read them? Yup. I have a special soapbox for them and reading in general. I will now step off it.

Oh my God, were you there the day I LOST MY SHIT on basically everyone who talked smack about it? Look, I get that it’s not your thing. I’m glad you think it’s poor writing. This does not make you better than me, and it doesn’t make you a feminist. It makes you the opposite. But I’m glad you get to feel sanctimonious and uppity about erotica. You win today’s petty war!

I didn’t see you lose your shit over that, but I’ve seen you lose your shit over other things, so I can imagine.

Excellent post. Sometimes women are each others worst enemies. Just as in any lifestyle or way of life there are people who are doing things for the right reasons (as they see it) and those who do it for the wrong (as they see it) reasons. I am not a fan of the books although I do engage in the lifestyle. While I am happy that BDSM is getting exposure I feel the books depict it in away as to further endorse the mindset that someone has to be damaged to enjoy BDSM activities. Like any thing else, it’s a choice. And as someone who engages and someone that has been in a abusive relationship, I can assure you that there is a huge difference.

Thank you for writing this.
