It’s All About the Trust
In my books, BDSM can be many different things to different people. From living the lifestyle 24/7 to only occasionally doing scenes. From the rather “tame” service to hard core blood and breath play, each one has its place.
Even the honorifics can be different, from master and sir to slave and boy, all the way to the other end of the spectrum where sweetie, honey, and baby live. For some couples spanking is a punishment, for others it’s a reward.
Every couple that incorporates BDSM into their lives takes from it what they want, what they need, what works for them. They might all start with “safe, sane and consensual” but where they go from there can be as different as the couples themselves. Which is why questions of what you like, what you want, what your soft and firm limits are, how hard you’re willing to be pushed, what is your safeword, are all important.
The one thing that all of my BDSM guys have in common is trust. For a start, the subs trust that the Doms will stop if they give their safeword, the Doms trust that their subs will use said safeword if they need to.
Trust is even more important between Trey and Lucien. Because Trey can’t see, he’s more vulnerable than another sub who can see might be. He can’t pick up the same cues as most subs can and he needs to trust that if Lucien ties him up or holds him down or does anything to him, that he’s going to be safe. Their love grows from the trust that lives between them.
So yes, size matters, and love matters, but the most important thing, or perhaps a better way of putting it is the thing that informs both Trey’s size kink and the love between Trey and Lucien, is trust.

The Book Description:
For ten years they’ve done things Trey’s way. Now Lucien wants more. He wants to be with his lover full-time. Is Trey ready? Will he ever be?
Ten years after they first met and fell in love, Lucien and Trey are still together—after a fashion. Terrified that he’s going to become entirely dependent on Lucien, Trey calls his lover to come spend four to five days with him whenever he finishes a novel. Lucien wants more, but up until now has been willing to bow to Trey’s wishes.
Finally broaching the idea of seeing each other more often, during Trey’s writing periods, Lucien suggests that they begin to date each other on Friday nights. Trey agrees to the experiment and begins to flourish as Lucien gets him out of the house more—to eat, to swim, to visit the beach.
But can Trey remain faithful to his work ethic, get the job done with his novels and enjoy the distractions and adventures Lucien plans for him? Or will Lucien’s desire to have more break them apart?
The Author, Sean Michael:
Often referred to as “Space Cowboy” and “Gangsta of Love” while still striving for the moniker of “Maurice,” Sean Michael spends his days surfing, smutting, organising his immense gourd collection and fantasizing about one day retiring on a small secluded island peopled entirely by horseshoe crabs. While collecting vast amounts of vintage gay pulp novels and mood rings, Sean whiles away the hours between dropping the f-bomb and pursuing the kama sutra by channelling the long lost spirit of John Wayne and singing along with the soundtrack to “Chicago”.
A long-time writer of complicated haiku, currently Sean is attempting to learn the advanced arts of plate spinning and soap carving sex toys.
Barring any of that? He’ll stick with writing his stories, thanks, and rubbing pretty bodies together to see if they spark.

Trey’s house was big, simple—the only things on the wall in Brian’s little office. Lucien ignored it all and headed for the bathroom, kicking one of Dodger’s balls down the hall for the pup.
“I hear someone’s ball!” Trey was good at that. He could decipher so many different sounds and what they meant.
“I sent it into the living room—keep him from under foot so I don’t trip over him as we go to the bathroom.”
“Does the house look good? Everything’s holding up?” Trey asked.
“You know it looks fantastic. Your assistant is keeping things up.” And there was a housekeeper to make sure it all stayed clean.
“I hope it does. I want it to. He’s a good kid, honestly. I’ll be sorry when he’s finished his studies and wants a real job.”
“I believe you. And I’m doing something wrong if you’re worried about the house instead of trying to rub off against my belly,” he noted.
Trey stopped, then laughed for him. “You are absolutely right. I just… I can trust you, implicitly, with everything.”
“Oh, that was a good answer. You should be a writer,” he teased, turning on the light as he carried his burden into the bathroom. All but one of the light bulbs were out, so he made a mental note to change them—Brian used the bathroom at the front of the house and, as far as Lucien knew, never used this one.
“Maybe I’ll think about going into that…writing.”
Chuckling, he carefully set Trey down on the toilet seat. Trey’s fingers searched the vanity, the wall on the other side, his lover always looking.
Lucien got the shower going, turning the spray of water nice and hot like he knew Trey liked it. “Did I tell you about the shower toys I saw?”
