Fetishes, A Peep Show, and an Awesome GIVEAWAY with Award Winning Author Kristine Cayne...
Exciting and Bewildering World of Fetishes
Hello Jennifer. It’s a pleasure to be
visiting your blog and your readers today. I hope you’ll enjoy this glimpse
into the world of Everything Bared,
the second book in my Six-Alarm Sexy firefighter erotic romance series, in
which the heroine is an exhibitionist and the hero is an up-tight CFO.
Sex clubs feature in several scenes in Everything Bared. At the beginning of the book there is a dream
sequence where Dani is participating in a peep show. Later, William and Dani (the
hero and heroine) visit a sex club called Club L’Estrange.
Since it was impossible for me to
physically visit a wide selection of sex clubs in my area, I did a lot of
online research and created a club based on the aspects I liked best from the
ones I’d read about.
Lusty Lady – Peep Show Anyone?
From the 1970s to 2010, Seattle was home to
one of the Lusty Lady clubs famous for their peep shows on the main stage as
well as booths. It was located in the downtown area near Pike Place Market. As
a firefighter in the area, Dani would have known about this club and probably
answered calls there on occasion. It seemed a perfect setting for her peep show
101 – Hold Onto Your G-String. It’s Going to be a Wild Ride!
Once William starts to loosen up, Dani
brings him to a fetish party at a local sex club. There is a lot of information
available regarding sex clubs (including BDSM and swinger clubs). I went on
some wonderful video tours, learned about the rules and confidentiality
agreements, peeked into private rooms, and took note of the availability of
props, toys, and play furniture.While
these clubs all looked like a great time, I wanted something more general and all-inclusive
for William and Dani’s first visit to a club together, an environment in which
they could test out their shared desires. A pansexual fetish party, with its
mix of kinks and levels of experience was the perfect solution.
Fetish parties are often held in sex clubs
or night clubs and usually have a theme. Since I didn’t want William to freak
out, I decided on a fetish party for beginners, where kinky outfits are
mandatory, but nothing extreme is required. I found great photos of a huge
variety of fetish theme parties at: http://www.thefetishparty.com/
Talk about inspiration!
– Kinkwear For Everyone!
Now that I’d created the settings for both
scenes, I had to find some appropriate outfits for Dani and William to wear. It
was time to go shopping. After some more online research, I found this fabulous
fetish clothing store called Fetish Factory (http://fetish-factory.com/). The styles
range from almost regular clothing to extreme kinkwear. Since William is a
beginner at this, I went easy on them.
William’s outfit is a little more sedate:
leather pants, military-style boots and leather vest. Pretty mundane, right?
Except for the collar and nipple clamps he wears. LOL
William and Dani have a fabulous time at
the sex club, even if that evening doesn’t end well for them (sorry, keeping
spoilers to a minimum, LOL). A reader has asked me if I think they will go back
anyways. My answer: absolutely!William
learns a lot about himself through that experience, but there is still so much
more for him to explore and Dani is all too eager to show him.

BDSM club, or fetish party? Do they intrigue you?
polar opposites—she’s kinky, he’s uptight—discover they share a taboo desire
that may destroy both their futures.
Firefighter Dani Harris has always wanted a
family, but doesn’t think it’s possible because of her demanding, high-stakes
career. Her sex life is as high-adrenaline as her job, and that’s just one more
thing that makes her unsuitable to be a wife and mother. Her secret kink—exhibitionism—has
gotten in the way of more than one relationship. Will she ever find a man who
not only shares her wild fantasies, but loves her for them?
Burdened with ensuring the success of the
struggling family business, William Caldwell IV needs a wife suited for a
CEO—one with money and connections, who can manage his busy social life and
raise their 2.5 children. He’s got everything all mapped out, but when he meets
Dani, a woman who’severy kind of wrong,
she taps into desires he’s only half-recognized and long-suppressed. Suddenly
his carefully crafted five-year plan feels as confining as a straightjacket.
As Dani and Will’s sexual experimentation
escalates, they test the limits of polite society by baring all and risking
exposure—an exposure that could cost them their reputations and careers.

wooden chair, she took in the small round platform beneath it, and the dozen
shuttered openings surrounding her. Each was no more than a couple square feet
in size and close enough for her to touch if she
stretched out her arm. A pulsing beat filled the space and her body.
low, smooth voice broke in. “Begin.”
Begin what? Where was she? That’s when she
noticed her clothes. Or rather her lack of them. A black corset laced up her
abdomen and tied between her breasts, and sheer boy shorts barely hid her
important bits. Garters tied to the corset held up silky thigh-highs. All
things considered, it was a pretty sexy get-up, though far more modest than
what she usually wore when she went to her favorite fetish parties. Is that
where she was now? At a sex club?

Beside the chair was a basket full of toys. Sex toys.

Not toys. Props.

she was here, she might as well enjoy herself.
