How much can a Dom ask of his submissive? And how much of himself?
For Derek and Tyler, Dominance and submission have been part of their love right from the first hello. But now Derek wants his submissive to go as deep as he is physically and emotionally able to. During two days and two nights, there are no safety words and very few limits. This is their chance to demonstrate their love for one another through the most extreme scenes they’ve ever played.
There is, however, one rule to trump all others for Tyler—to protect Sir’s most loved possession, even if it means disobedience or going against his own need to submit to his Master without question or complaint.
This weekend will open up levels of their relationship they’ve never dreamed of before.
Reader Advisory: This book contains intense BDSM scenes, strong pain-play, mild humiliation, fisting, pet-play and mild sensual torment. Please be aware of the twenty-four-seven Total Power Exchange dynamic between those two men.

Let’s be clear about one thing. BDSM doesn’t have to hurt. There is a reason the connection is there, with all those whips and paddles, but that doesn’t mean it’s the whole story. Nor is there an absolute rule that fiction about BDSM has to contain an element of pain to be considered the real deal.
Still, pain is one of the most fascinating parts of BDSM. We humans, as all animals, don’t particularly care to feel pain. It’s the sign that something might be wrong, and or course pain hurts. We don’t like that, because our brains tell us it’s a bad feeling. So it’s logical to conclude that to voluntarily undergo an act you know will hurt, or to pick up that paddle, is reason to ask: why the hell would anyone want that?
I’ll be honest about it: I’m not into BDSM. It’s not my cup of Lady Grey, no matter I’ve known about it for over thirty years, have a certain appreciation for some of the aesthetics and talked with enough kinksters both in real life and on the internet to know that outside the bedroom we are not all that different. A Weekend Unbound isn’t about BDSM in general. It is about Derek and Tyler and their motivation to do what they do. Some of their story might make you nod and grin because yes, exactly that is what you mean. Some is guaranteed to make you go… meh, whatever.
Pain has several functions for submissive Tyler. He’s proud to endure for his Sir, even if Derek gets out the dreaded clamps. I know clamps are often not as painful as their reputation makes them out to be, but Derek sure hates them. And still he endures them as long as Derek wants him to. He also dives deep into the intense pain of an intense whipping and paddling, riding the ecstasy brought about by endorphins.
Going through pain as a submissive to reach that lovely high is one thing, but what about the one picking out the clamps, wielding the whip? What makes a man hurt the man he loves more than anything in this world? Doesn’t that go against his nature?
In a way it does. Even when it’s absolutely clear to him that Tyler wants to suffer for him to the point of the pain becoming too much even for a big, strong man, that doesn’t mean Derek wants to hurt his lover. His way to deal with that is setting one absolute rule: make sure Sir’s most treasured possession doesn’t allow himself to get damaged beyond repair, both psychically and psychologically.
When pain is part of the rituals of D/s, with rules and careful preparations, it becomes something else. It allows Derek not only to accept what he is doing, but also to enjoy it in his own way. He’s attentive to every small detail, and he’s proud of his ability to lead his submissive lover into free flight and make sure he lands safely.
S. Dora is the me writing m/m erotica, though I can imagine a m/f or f/f story might suddenly decide they want to get written too, somewhere in the future. The real me is also writing: novels and stories that don’t revolve around the down and dirty. And the non-writing me? Is it interesting to know I’m a woman, born in 1961? That my wife and I celebrate our 30th anniversary in October 2011? That we have two sons and five cats and live near Rotterdam? That I had a novel published in Dutch? And one in English? That Dora is because of the little mechanical typewriter I bought with money earned with my very first summer job? That I studied social history and done all kinds of jobs? I guess it actually is, if only because every story ever told is important to at least one reader.
I have been reading gay erotica for over 15 years now and I’ve been writing it for a little under ten years. I’ve always had an interest in Dominance and submission, and my writing reflects how my thinking about the scene has evolved. I live in the southern United States, an area not incredibly open to alternative lifestyles, and the internet has been my salvation. I spent about six months working on a website, designing tease and denial games, and it is still one of my biggest kinks.
