K is for Kinky

Kinky is my K word-and I don’t mean hair.

I don’t talk about these books much. They are not a guilty pleasure; I don’t feel guilty. But some people act oddly around them.

I mean books where all kinds of erotic things happen – things involving handcuffs, rope and other adult toys.

I got into this genre almost by accident. The first book I read was the first Sleeping Beauty book by Anne Rice in high school. I didn’t like it and I couldn’t finish it. I still don’t. I think it crosses the safe, sane and consensual line. Especially the consensual line.

I was a member of LKH’s forum at the same time and someone recommended a book by Joey w. Hill called Natural Law. I looked it up, I read reviews -and than found it in the library.

I haven’t looked back.

Natural Law is an early work. But it is nothing like Sleeping Beauty. Nothing! I was wonderfully pleased.

Joey W. Hill is one of my favorite authors these days. Her writing has only become better over the years -hotter, more intense. I only wish I could write with such intensity.

I have found other writers I like – Kim Dare, Chris Owens.

I haven’t read Shades of Gray , but, for reasons I don’t entirely understand myself, I am not really tempted to. It’s not the subject material. I think I’ll dislike it as much I disliked Twilight.

Do you read kinky romances? How did you discover them?

    1. Well, if you ever want to try out the above the authors, Kim Dare has a few short free stories up. Joey W. Hill is more intense, but she also has a few free short stories up. I personal favorite of all her work Rough Canvas and Vampire Trinity comes a close second.

  1. I don’t read them, even though I write about sex a fair bit, but mine is more the desultory side of it rather than the romantic or erotic. A sort of anti-erotica. I did read a book by Alexander Trocchi (a contemporary of William Burroughs) called “Thongs” in the British Library cos it was out of print. Because of its content I had to read it in a special room right under the nose of the librarian’s desk and I wasn’t allowed to take in any pens, only pencils!

  2. I read the first shades book and that was it. I had to see what all the fuss was about. My wife loved them , I however thought her writing was horrible.

  3. I’m not anti-kinky romance, but I’ve read a few that seem to be written purely for shock value and I find that really off-putting. But I have read some good ones, though! 😀

  4. I read bits and pieces from the first Sleeping Beauty book by Anne Rice when I was in high school too and I couldn’t make it through the whole novel. I’m one to erotica and have read a few erotic books, but it’s not my favorite genre.

  5. tee-hee. You hit several points square on the head. I think I’ve found a new blog to stalk. I’ve read some seriously kinky stuff, though sharing an amazon kindle account with hubby can sometimes keep me from reading books I might otherwise do, if the cover or title are blatantly “This is kinky, smexy and borderline Taboo smutastic” He’s not a prude by any means… but not sure I want to be giving him any ideas >_>

  6. I have not read any. 50 Shades doesn’t interest me, but more because I heard from many that it was poorly written, as opposed to the nature of the story.

  7. What a great choice for K, Sonia. I don’t think I’ve read anything that fits that genre, but only because I’ve never had any recommended. Now, I have some recommendations so I don’t have that excuse any more. 🙂

    My current WIP is something between a romance and mainstream fiction – but it’s definitely not even close to the kinky end of the spectrum. 🙂

Say something and make my day!
