The Bumphampton Chronicles: Chapter 4 Part (17)

Our ivory ball gags were removed and joined the other soiled objects in the bucket. I noticed Louisa’s breathing was loud and harsh, her eyes unfocused. The leather saddle was damp to the touch with her sweat. A knock on the door, it opened, and Miss Frothinglips sailed in as a clipper under full canvas. She ignored us both and whispered to Mrs. Cleanknockers. A sharp swivel of the head and her shoulders stiffened. With nary a backwards glance, Mrs. Cleanknockers strode out the door: Miss Frothinglips, after handing Louisa a clean uniform, followed swiftly. Left alone with my nemesis.

  1. Just scrummy, as always!

    I have a serious question (because I can be serious sometimes, you know!) that maybe you or any of your readers may be able to answer. Where do people lie on the position of ball gags? (By the way, the thought of an ivory one is divine) I ask because I was writing about one the other day, for something which will be published on Amazon, and just happened to mention it to someone who told me immediately to take it out, due to its issues with non-consent. Maybe they were right, as I was trying to write a kind of “payback” scene, which definitely pushed the boundaries of non-consent. I still may include it and see what my beta readers think. But what about more generally in erotica? Permissible or not? Under what circumstances? Is it OK to write a rape scene in a crime fiction book to show the nature of the criminal, but not OK to use elements of non-consent in erotica to show the unpleasant nature of a character (as opposed to a stroke scene)? Should actual erotic play in stroke scenes be censored for authors like that? I’m very interested in thoughts on this.

    Just a tiny question to kick off your day…! 🙂

    • I do have a problem with the view that fictional rape and violence is fine if labeled ‘crime or mystery’ but is off-limits in erotica. Somehow we accept obscene dead body counts in both books and visual media, but to show actual sex or genitalia, or actual spanking and BDSM is labeled offensive and worthy of censorship. I am sure you can find thousands if not tens of thousands of books on Amazon that mention ball gags, either in word or deed. Where is the line between stroke and erotica and romance? I’ve read many a mainstream romance that features more explicit sex than some so-called erotica. I’ve read violent sex in #1 best-selling novels by acclaimed authors. Standards are an ever shifting target that most of the time make no sense. I am positive that if you included a lengthy scene with a ball gag and non-consensual punishment, but called it age-play, Amazon would welcome it with open arms.

      • You’re completely right. Standards, as far as the book market go, seem to be an ever-shifting cornucopia of double standards and hypocrisy. I don’t know that there has to be a line drawn between stroke and erotica and romance, but where that leaves an author on the virtual bookshelves is anyone’s guess! Hmm, I’ll have to think of a way of giving my character his just desserts (another obnoxious character of mine!) while playing ball (gags) with the Amazon gatekeepers.


    • As far as a ball gag being being something forced, i.e. non consensual, I would say they are very consenting, especially if that’s in the context written.

      • Thank you! I agree that’s perfectly possible and plausible. The issue comes with not being able to say ‘stop’ (or use a safeword), apparently, as far as the online bookstores are concerned. Consensual erotic moments, to me, can involve whatever implement or toy the people involved bring into play. It’s where I might fall foul, though, as my character is being punished by the very women he recklessly and thoughtlessly abuses earlier on in the story. So it’s still a bit of a grey area for me, from a writerly perspective.

        • Then all you need is one sentence, “You want me to gag you to atone for your mistreatment of me, isn’t that right?”

  • Ghosting Past Emily — part of the Corrupted anthology

    After Amsterdam and Berlin, Tokyo was her favorite place to explore the latest in technological sexuality. Unlike in Europe though, in Japan she would always be gaijin, and the locals off limits to her needs. On the crowded streets of Ginza she felt the stares and heard the unspoken contempt, Go back to where you came from, which was something it had in common with America. She was too tall, too confident, too yellow and most of all, too female. She channeled the perceived insults into taboo actions.
    It was a tired and bitter Emily that touched down ten hours later in a San Francisco of bone-chilling damp and a watery rising sun. She needed a hard session at the Armory before returning to work on Monday. Her slave had better be ready to grovel and be pussy-whipped.

  • The Case of the Disciplined Valentine

    A comedy of Victorian manners mixed with delicious spankings and sexual encounters guaranteed to raise even a vampire’s blood pressure. Byron Cane sets a torrid pace in his historical paranormal erotic novella.

    It is 1854 in steampunk London, and Sir Nachton MacRath is warily returning to his home isle after decades abroad. He has good reasons to steer clear of the Royal Family, but is immediately snared by the Queen herself, who anoints him, Her Chastiser of Loose Morals, complete with elevation to the upper reaches of the aristocracy. Rather than a quiet existence as a vampire, he is now a Peer uneasily rubbing shoulders with the most powerful men in the Empire.

    Phoebe Hayward is a lady of good breeding, but like all her contemporaries, longs for some excitement and romance. Valentine’s Day is only weeks away, when their paths cross with a bump. Despite later discovering the man ordered to discipline her is actually a vampire, she can’t help falling in love. The more encounters with Sir MacRath she has, the more her body yearns to know what it is to submit to his vampiric touch. When he reluctantly agrees to be her Valentine, thus begins a Domination and discipline the likes of which she’s never dreamed.

    MacRath doesn’t feel he deserves Phoebe’s love, and attempts to push her away by taking her deeper into sexual submission. She surprises him — and herself — by eagerly submitting to his every desire. Together, they explore the sensual heights that a woman and a man — a vampire — can reach. But politics and conflict are never far away, and the Valentine’s Day deadline comes all too soon.

    Note: The original version of this book was included in the Lust in Lace paranormal romance anthology.

    Pity poor Stephanie: twenty-five years old and still spanked daily. She was intelligent, a college graduate with honors, articulate, a fashionista with a good job and an all-round delightful person with never a cross word and always a genuine smile for everyone. It was to her misfortune that she also exuded an innocent sensual charm, leading both men and women to have one uppermost thought in their minds: spanking Stephanie’s spectacular and epic rounded bottom. It was not her fault; genetics had blessed her with both the ideal rear end and a delightful bewildered submissiveness. It simply never occurred to her to challenge her discipline. If someone needed to spank her, well, obviously she was guilty of some offense and thus deserved to be spanked.
    When Stephanie crashes (quite literally) into the life of Ross, high flying exec in the fashion world and eligible bachelor, she is stupefied he wants her as his. Under Ross’ tutelage, as Brat to his Sir, she learns that she can be spanked for more than just being naughty! And Ross — he discovers there’s much more to Stephanie than just her submissive need to be disciplined, as he falls more and more in love.
    A brilliantly funny, light-hearted, spanking erotic romance novella by Byron Cane, with memorable characters and a beautiful love story interwoven into the sexiness, lending a contemporary twist to the princess fairy tale.
