Fetishes, A Peep Show, and an Awesome GIVEAWAY with Award Winning Author Kristine Cayne...


The 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.

The 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 dream.


Fetish 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!

FetishFactory – 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.

Question for the readers: Have you ever been to a sex club, BDSM club, or fetish party? Do they intrigue you?

 


Two 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’s  every 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.

Excerpt:

A spotlight snapped on, bathing Dani in a harsh white light. Perched on a low 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.

A man’s 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?

When the platform began to rotate, she shifted and her foot hit something on the floor. Beside the chair was a basket full of toys. Sex toys.

One of the shuttered windows slowly slid open. In the near darkness, she could make out the broad-shouldered shape of a man.

Not toys. Props.

This was a peepshow. And she was the star attraction.

Her nails dug into her thighs as she tried to figure out if she was awake or asleep. Was she dreaming? If so, her subconscious was a right bitch to play with her fantasies like this.

The music cut out again. “Is there a problem, princess?”

That voice. It sounded so familiar, but not. She swallowed and shook her head. Since she was here, she might as well enjoy herself.

 



Award-winning author Kristine Cayne is fascinated by the mysteries of human psychology—twisted secrets, deep-seated beliefs, out-of-control desires. Add in high-stakes scenarios and real-world villains, and you have a story worth writing, and reading.

Kristine’s heroes and heroines are pitted against each other by their radically opposing life experiences. By overcoming their differences and finding common ground, they triumph over their enemies and find true happiness in each other’s arms.

Today she lives in the Pacific Northwest, thriving on the mix of cultures, languages, religions and ideologies. When she’s not writing, she’s people-watching, imagining entire life stories, and inventing all sorts of danger for the unsuspecting heroes and heroines who cross her path.

  2. I haven't been to a fetish or BDSM club. My married sex life wasn't all that exciting. I have been an avid reader for years. I would want to try stuff but he wasn't interested. After being divorced almost 5 years, if I met the right person, I would love to visit some of the club's. I think I am a lot like William as in being a bit stiff. I blush easily but maintain conversation. Trust comes hard for me and I think trust is key in this sort of relationship. I love the Sexy Alarm series and look forward to more.
