So I’m writing a contemporary story, one of second chances and suddenly it veers off and becomes a story about polyamory.
I love writing about poly as much as I love writing about BDSM. They both come with a wealth of emotional issues that I can really sink my teeth into. I can really delve into characters and conflict as well as general interaction. My goal is always to show the emotional portrait of BDSM and being poly.
It’s more than being spanked or tied up, it’s about what the emotional decision is to submit to someone. It’s more than having a sexual relationship with more than one person, it’s about the relationship of each person in the poly grouping.
It’s one of my favorite things about writing about sex – there’s so much meat (no pun intended) to sexuality, it’s so unique and complex.
