Review: Diary of a Submissive (NSFW)

In the wake of the popularity of "50 Shades of Gray," as part of the BHBC, here is a link to the campaign, I was asked to read "Diary of a Submissive" by Sophie Morgan. I'll honestly tell you that I read about half of 50 Shades, and wasn't impressed. The characters were awful, and the relationship depicted was horrifying. No one should ever date someone that hands over a Dominance and submission contract within the first week of meeting. NO ONE.

But onto DoaS. This is a memoir, not some cheap erotica with a girl begging to orgasm and petting her 'inner goddess' with her 'one twue dominate' every single page.

Oh, yeah, this is about BDSM. Not safe for work. In case you have any questions about BDSM, you can feel free to comment. Yes, I do consider myself part of the community. No, I do not consider myself a submissive. No, I don't consider myself a dominant. Anyhoo....

I loved this book. It give an accurate of one persons personal journey in the world of BDSM. No one's life is the same, and this is a perfect balance. Is there explict sex? Yes! Is it hot? Yes! But there is an actual life behind all of it, a woman with her own quirks and likes and job. This book truly show that not everyone into BDSM is twisted, or fucked up, or angry, or demonized. We are people, and this is one aspect of our lives.

The struggle of balancing the kink world with the real world, a 24/7 dynamic with a life is the story of Sophie Morgan. I thought it was provocative and amazing, much better than the drivel that is out there.
