In case you hadn’t realised, Planet Venus is back. It may seem perverse for me to be away from my regular writing responsibilities at this time. BDSM has suddenly become the literary flavour of the year with the publishing phenomenon of “50 Shades of Grey” taking the mainstream reading habits of the world by storm. In this eroticized and aroused moment in time you might think that I’ve been neglecting my proper duties and the philosophy behind my all important web.
Although my loyal slaves have been working around the clock, they can only achieve so much on their own before I have to take the initiative again and do the things for Planet Venus that only I am qualified to do. Nevertheless, I see the distinctive cover of “50 Shades of Grey” and its sequels appearing in increasing numbers on the metro, in cafes and being read on benches in municipal parks. Everyone has either read it, is reading it or feels that they need to have an opinion about it. In my mind this can only be a good thing.
It is still only fiction however. What happens when all of those readers feel the need to experiment with BDSM in their real lives?
If you really want to discover how fulfilling and exciting BDSM can be but you are reluctant to do so because of any pre-conceptions you might still have then let me reassure you. BDSM can be so much fun that it’s almost a scandal that it took until this year for it to emerge into popular culture. The world of bondage, sexual role-play, domination, submission and slave contracts has always been out there, waiting to be found
None of this is news to me. It was for the benefit of couples wanting to explore this world and who wished to experiment with its potentials that I wrote “Love Me Like You Hate Me” in collaboration with Erika Lust. My book doesn’t just explain the origins of BDSM but it actively encourages integrating it into modern relationships. It offers advice on the appropriate equipment to use, the techniques that will help you to derive the maximum benefit from your experiences and has suggestions about how you can keep BDSM surprising and, above all, fun, fun, fun!
“Love Me Like You Hate Me” is the perfect guide for using BDSM to enhance and deepen your understanding of what can turn you, and your partner, on. Every copy comes with a set of free silk hand-cuffs so you won’t have to wait a minute longer than necessary to discover exactly what you’ve been missing out on all this time.
When you put “50 Shades of Grey” down, don’t forget to open “Love Me Like You Hate Me” afterwards.
50 shades of Venus is exactly what you need.
