Kink on a Walmart Budget

I love a fine BDSM romance. Reading the genre is a fun and safe way for someone to “experience” the “lifestyle” in a fictional way. But often the guy/Dom is a billionaire or at least has a huge . . . bank account. He often lives in a big city like New York where clubs seems to be around every corner. What about the average Joe who has a kink or two. How does he explore his kinks and need for a submissive living on a Walmart budget? What if he lives in rural America (or another country, all British yummies can’t be rich either).

A Red Room of Pain is expensive to stock and those “sex clubs” aren’t on every corner like Starbucks. Sure you could use some everyday inexpensive items like cloth pins for nipple claps and Christian Grey shopped at a hardware store for a few of the things he used on Ana. I guess an average Joe would have to be creative with a limited budge.

Perhaps he could use wooden spoons for some sort of play . . .

 

Have you read a BDSM/erotica romance where the Dom was an average Joe? Let me know in the comments.

Talking Between Reads (TBR) is a monthly discussion post where we talk about different topics from books to blogging and anything else we think you guys might enjoy. Stop by for new topics. Marketing a Book as FREE via Kindle Unlimited is my biggest pet peeve at the moment. What exactly is Kindle Unlimited? It is a new service that allows you to read as much as you want, choosing from over 600,000 titles and thousands of audiobooks. You can read on any device. It’s available for $9.99 a month and you can cancel anytime. Why is my pet peeve? Look at the description of KU. IT COSTS $9.99 A MONTH. What the hell about that screams FREE? Not a damn thing.   I wondered about the […]

Talking Between Reads (TBR) is a monthly discussion post where we talk about different topics from books to blogging and anything else we think you guys might enjoy. Stop by for new topics.   I keep running into these fun Book Tags so expect to see more of these for TBR in the following months. (Hey they are fun and take almost no time to write. Schoolwork is keeping me busy. LOL) I ran across this a WHILE back, like over a year ago at The Book Vixen and it looked like fun, so I invited the ladies to do it with me.   Do you get sick while reading in the car? Jennifer: I get sick in the car unless I’m driving so no […]

Stop by for new topics.   Get out and get those library cards (or renew them)! They save you TONS of money on books. And most libraries have other things you can check out besides books (gasp!)   Jennifer’s Library Experience I love using my library card, it saves me so much money from books, movies to video games. But what if my library does not have a book/audiobook? Request it! 9 out 10 books I request via my library system they get! I only request ebooks and audiobooks but I’m sure they would get print copies […]

Talking Between Reads (TBR) is a monthly discussion post where we talk about different topics from books to blogging and anything else we think you guys might enjoy. Stop by for new topics. After watching Francesca’s video from Under the Covers Book Blog on the Intimidating TBR Tag I thought I would answer the questions myself for this month’s TBR post.     1. What book have you been unable to finish? I DNF The Accidental Human by Dakota Cassidy. I just don’t like Wanda & Health as characters much less care about them as a couple. After listening to about 40% of it I decided to stop and skip to the next book in the series since the H/h were not my favorite characters. 2. What book […]

  Talking Between Reads (TBR) is a monthly discussion post where we talk about different topics from books to blogging and anything else we think you guys might enjoy. Stop by for new topics. Playlists: What Music Genres Put You in the Mood for What Book Genres? Authors talk about their playlists as in what music they listen to when they’re writing. Others talk about what music they listen to while reading. I can’t listen to music while I read. The lyrics distract me and I starting singing with the music instead of reading. But lately, I’ve been listening to music and thinking, this song, artist or genre of music puts me in the mood to read a certain book genre.  More specifically Country music. […]

Stop by for new topics.   WTF am I reading and does it really matter what the label is as long as I’m enjoying it?! Apocalyptic – relating to the end of the world; relating to, or involving terrible violence and destruction. (per merriam-webster.com) In other words: that’s shit is happening now. Post–apocalyptic – set in a world or civilization after a disaster. In other words: fuck, that was some messed up shit that happened. Dystopia – an imaginary place where people are unhappy and usually afraid because they are not treated fairly. (per merriam-webster.com) In other words, could be […]
