Today, I'm very excited to welcome Justine Elyot to Willsin's World. Justine and I have appeared together in an anthology before (Sommer Marsden's Gritty), and she has a very deft touch with the putting the words in, like, a real good order and that.
It's my very first visit to this very fine blog and I must first of all thank Willsin for his kind hospitality.
I'm here today because I've got a book out. When I say book, I mean ebook, and when I say ebook, I mean novella. It's about 40,000 words long and it's called Confessions of a Kinky Wife.
Here's the lowdown:
Is it possible to be a confident twenty-first century woman and submit to your lover? It's difficult, as a modern woman, to admit that you want your lover to punish you. Not just a fun spanking in the bedroom – real punishment.Philippa knows what she wants. She wants her police officer husband to take her in hand.But how do you ask your lover to hurt you? And, if they're willing, how do you make sure that being taken in hand doesn't get out of hand?Philippa and Dan explore the secret world of Domestic Discipline. Perhaps it will suit them, perhaps it won't. But they mean to find out, one way or the other.
OK, tonight's the night. It really is. It has to be.
I've lost count of the number of times I've almost brought the subject up.
I've rehearsed the words eleventy-three times while I've cooked 'special' meals or clipped my stockings on to my suspenders or even just lain sprawled with his head in my lap watching something vaguely sexy on TV.
I always start with some kind of mention of how I'm a 'bad girl', just to see what he might say to that. But he always says, "Just the way I like you, love," and there we are, taking the vanilla fork in the road again, while he reaches for another handful of popcorn and pats my thigh absent-mindedly.
This makes me sound like some kind of unsatisfied horn dog but I should stress that I'm not unhappy with our sex life, and he can be prevailed upon for some slap and tickle when the mood's right and we're in the thick of things. It's always jokey and short-lived and self-conscious, though. A couple of quick swats on the bum when I bend over for rear entry, for instance, just because he likes the way my cheeks jiggle. I always moan over-dramatically, encouraging more, but he must think I'm just desperate for his cock, because he never repeats the move.
Yeah, I know it's ironic. Communication. Exactly what I spend all day teaching troubled teenagers about. Yet, when it comes to translating my fantasies into words for my lovely husband, I'm useless.
But tonight I'm taking the bull by the horns. (Please provide your own rude joke.) Could any night be more perfect? Our third wedding anniversary. And what's your third wedding anniversary? Oh yes – leather!
I've heard all the bawdy suggestions, thanks. Catwoman outfit, check. Strap-on, check. Gimp mask, check. None of these are what I had in mind for him, though.
I went to a little shop in town that specialised in leather goods. It was surprisingly hard to find exactly what I wanted. Everything was the wrong colour or gimmicky, over-designed with stupid monogram buckles.
What I wanted was a plain, old-fashioned man's belt, tan leather with that authentic cowhide kind of look and feel. Smooth on one side, suedey on the other, and with a big brass buckle. And the weight had to be right. I don't mean right for sitting around his hips and keeping his trousers up either. I mean right for wrapping around his fist and giving me a good thrashing with.
I browsed dozens of the wrong kind, wrinkling my nose at their unsatisfactory smell. They were too light, borderline plasticky. I needed that good, deep, leather aroma that travelled like lightning from my nostrils to my clit.
When I found it, I had to take a moment, look over my shoulder to make sure nobody saw me, and breathe deep and long.
Oh yes. That was the one. Right colour, right weight, right buckle, right feel, right smell. This was the belt my husband could whip me with.
I felt ridiculously coy taking it to the counter. I had to keep telling myself that it's perfectly usual for a man to receive a belt as a present and nobody's going to assume I'm a pervert. But I just felt that the man who untagged it and wrapped it and took my money knew perfectly well what I wanted it for. And he thought I deserved it too.
By the time I left the shop, I was in a stew of arousal. I walked to the car with wet knickers and nipples punching their way out of my bra cups. When I got home, I took the belt out of its bag and lay on the sofa, sniffing it, while I put my hands down my knickers.
I fantasised about Dan coming home early and catching me at it. In my fantasy he was still wearing his uniform, even though he has to change at the end of each shift in real life, and he strode over, snatched the belt off me and ordered me over the back of the sofa.
"What have I told you about that?" he said sternly, pulling my knickers down to my knees. "You don't do it without me. You don't come when I'm not around. Is that so hard to understand?"
"So why can't you behave yourself?"
"I guess I'm a bad girl, Sir."
"Yes. And you know what happens to bad girls."
He was wrapping the buckle end around his fist.
He trailed the V-shaped end over my bare bum cheeks, cold and ticklish.
"They get punished, Sir."
"That's right. You're going to learn your lesson, Pip. It's going to be a hard one, but that's what you need."
That's what I need. Oh yes.
He was only halfway through the spanking, the leather falling full-strength, heating my arse like fire, before I came, really hard. I jerked around so much that the belt slid off my face and on to the carpet.
No sign of Dan, though. Hardly surprising because his shift didn't finish till nine.
My orgasm had ironed out the knots a tough day's work had added to my spine, though, so it was all good. I headed for the shower and thought, yet again, about how I was going to talk him into what I had in mind.
So, anyway, wedding anniversary. Tonight's the night and I've got champagne on ice for when we get home from the restaurant. I've also got the dark red silk underwear on underneath this dress. I'm waiting for him to change into his best suit and then we're off out. The Talk will happen. Wish me luck.
