One day, I’m going to write something with a heat rating of 6. Or, ‘sextreme’, as some publishers of erotica call it.
Since Shocked is rated 3-4, depending on which site’s heat rating you look at, I feel like the gauntlet has been thrown down. “Your porn is porny, but we’ve seen pornier!” Right, then! BDSM it is!
I do write kink – I’ve just not submitted any of it for consideration yet. It’s fun to write and fun to do (yep, I’m a submissive), though you have to tread the line between safety and titillation. At least, I have to. There have been things I’ve read in the past that have made me go, “You’d get thrown out of a decent dungeon for doing that… you’d give her internal bleeding if you hit her there… okay, that’s just not even possible…”
On top of that, there are some things that I just can’t write, out of respect for children, animals and hygiene. Maybe I’ll never hit ‘sextreme’, then – but I can possibly get to the level below!
