For the sequel to Kiss My Ass, we knew our stories were going to deal with anal sex. But what are the tales really about? Well, mine’s a revenge fantasy. She gives him what he wants, and then… Wait! You’ll have to read the story to find out the rest. And yeah, Pegged was based on a very specific interaction I had with a man.
When I asked the rest of the authors to share a behind-the-scenes peek into their stories, this is what they said:
Jax Baynard: I don’t know where this story came from. This guy showed up in my head, and I liked him. He’s pretty clear on what he doesn’t want, and if what he does want comes with an unusual label, he’s okay with that. He’s not complicated, which I also like because I tend to complicate things. This was a fun story to write because it was in my head for so long that I didn’t have to fuss much with it on the page.
Kristina Lloyd: I don't know where the idea to write about anal sex with an astronaut came from. An image popped into my head and the title, Dark Side of the Moon, quickly followed. Immediately, I knew this was the story I wanted to write instead. It’s a surreal, strange tale, but it’s also an exploration of something quite ordinary: a struggling marriage and a breakdown in communication.
Sommer Marsden: Everyone has an opinion about anal (sounds like a Broadway show, no?). My vast and expert (ah-ha-ha!) experience says that the best way to explore any new sexual experience is to dive headfirst into what makes you a unique couple. If you approach it in your own clever way, you can never really fail at anything between the sheets.
Sophia Valenti: Power Play was born out of a discussion I had with a friend of mine, in which he told me all of the things he loved about anal sex, namely the power-exchange aspect of it. He really got off on the sense of domination—of conquering a new lover in that way. That got me thinking about a guy like him—a total player—meeting a woman who turns the tables on him and shows him what it’s like to be on the receiving end.
