Today, I've got Maggie Ryan visiting on our guest couch. We're being very casual, so take off your shoes, sit back and relax while we discuss spanking erotic and Maggie's new Corbin's Bend release "Ever Lasting Hope."
I asked Maggie what part she thought the Internet played in allowing men and women to indulge in spanking erotica. An activity they may have considered abnormal or unusual prior to eBooks. This is how she answered:
Before I answer this, I'd like to pass on something my psychology professor told our class. He asked for us to define abnormal. While most people answer as something not normal, he then asked us to define normal. The lesson was that normal or unusual have a million different definitions depending on who is defining the word.
To answer the question, I believe that the Internet and the surge of spanking related erotica have allowed people not to be frightened to explore their desires. Finding your kink shared by others is certain to take away a bit of the fear of being outcasts from some normal definition. Television and movies are also expanding circles of acceptance. In my books, I try hard to stay within the boundaries of safe, sane and consensual between legal aged adults and whatever activity is being explored, it must not cause harm to anyone.
Now, on to Ever Lasting Hope.
“Spanks your ass?” Violet suggested, in her typical blunt fashion. “And, as you so eloquently put it, seriously, Everleigh Harris – you do remember exactly what sort of man you are engaged to, right? Don’t tell me you expect Rob, the very stern, very dominant, very alpha male Officer Robert Montgomery, to forget that he promised you a good spanking?” As Ever just groaned, her head against the back of her seat, her eyes closed, Violet grinned and reached out to place her hand over her best friend’s. “Besides, as much as I love you, I agree this is one spanking you deserve.”
Ever’s eyes popped open as did her mouth. “What? What sort of friend says something like that?”
“A best friend who would like to keep you around for a very long time. Ever, you’ve got to admit it, you are taking a very cavalier attitude about your health. If you didn’t get the message that we all love you and are worried about you after your first collapse, well, perhaps you’ll get the message when your butt is vermilion.”
Ever shook her head but had to giggle. “God, only another artist would say vermilion when she means red!” Violet’s smile and exaggerated eye roll told Ever that her friend understood but wasn’t about to back down. “Okay, I get it. I screwed up big time, but don’t you think he could wait for a bit? I mean, all I want to do is hold him and feel him holding me. I’ve missed him so much. I just feel awful that he has to come home and tend to his ‘bad girl’ instead of just coming home and relaxing.”
Violet squeezed Ever’s fingers. “Honey, you and I both fell in love with men that can’t relax or just let something go when we’ve been less than truthful.” She gave Ever a stern glance until Ever finally nodded. “You told everyone you’d tell Rob and well, sweetie, you didn’t. Everleigh, you are not a bad girl but you have to admit that you did make a bad choice in being dishonest.”
Ever groaned again. Nodding, she turned her eyes back to Violet. “I know, but, God, I just want to cuddle.”
“Honey, you will cuddle, I promise. But, if we are honest with ourselves, we wouldn’t like it if they didn’t follow through on their word. We need the structure, need the rules and most especially, need the discipline when we step out of bounds. You’ve stepped out so far as to endanger your health. We all know where that leads.”
Everleigh has waited for weeks for her fiancé's return. Rob had been overseas for six weeks and his absence was almost more than Ever could take. Even knowing that he was going to take her over his knee for ignoring his instructions didn't dampen her desire to have him home. After a few weeks of constant togetherness, Rob sees a change in the woman he loves. As their wedding draws closer, his sweet Ever was threatening to turn into one of those horrid Bridezillas. He decides she needs a different project, one that captured her artistic spirit. Ever is all for following this order, but finds her original plans change when she learns about a project that will allow her to honor the men and women who serve their country. The residents pull together to help these injured soldiers. Tory's husband, John, needs more than his wife's love and as a fellow resident of this special community, Rob takes on a project of his own. Ever finds that art takes many forms and hope is everlasting as long as there are people in the world that reach out to help their fellow man.
A Note From the Author:
I have been writing stories as long as I can remember. I am an author with Blushing Books. I enjoy writing both contemporary erotica as well as historical books set in ages past. I love developing characters that are able to tell their own stories. My heroines are multi-faceted women who are strong, intelligent and capable in their own right but find a deep need to share their lives with those strong, sexy and dominant alpha males that capture their hearts. My heros recognize the gift of submission for the gift it is, loving and protecting the women that offer that gift. I enjoy sweet, romantic stories with just a taste of domestic discipline as well as one that explore the harsher D/S lifestyle. I also enjoy writing age-play stories set both in Victorian era where women didn't have a great deal of power in their lives as well as in today's present time where women still find their happiness is greatly enhanced in offering the gift of submission. My hope is that you settle back in your favorite chair and allow my books to entertain you and let you escape into another world.
