Introduction: Bondage at Home and Away


Every year, different themes emerge from the submissions I receive for the Best Bondage Erotica series. This year bondage writers stuck close to home—literally. This year, I received stories like “Housewarming the Craftsman,” by Daddy X, and “Stuck on You,” by Jenne Davis, that focused on housing, real estate and home improvement, that are both humorous and offer some creative forms of containment that prove you don’t need a Red Room of Pain to make someone writhe. While in “Tying the Knot,” by Rob Rosen, bondage gets mobile, there’s a sweetness to this engagement story that tethers the protagonists close to each other, and their marital home. In “Bound to Lie” by Nichelle Gregory, two business adversaries battle it out in the boardroom for the ultimate form of control.


In these kinky tales, bondage happens as part of yoga, knitting, a birthday present, with a collar, a cage, duct tape, a webcam, and a very sexy pair of thighs. Bondage, in some cases, is in the eye and mind of the one being bound. It’s what happens after these eager, curious, brave characters are trussed up, immobile, secure in their trappings, that makes for the most powerful sexual encounters of all.

 

Whatever form the bondage takes, each of the characters you’ll read about in Best Bondage Erotica 2015 struggles and delights in the power and intimacy invoked in the name of knowing one’s place, literally and figuratively.
