The Romance of Erotic Submission – an Interview with Claire Thompson

What Women Read has an Interview with Claire Thompson Claire is a writer hosted at Realms of Love. Her past writing has centered on erotic submission. She is now venturing into the ManLove genre of erotic romance.

Here's a bit of that interview:

What prompted you to consider writing an erotic romance that featured BDSM?
I had always had submissive, masochistic sexual leanings, but I
married very young, without the courage to express my sensual needs to my
partner. My sex life was aided by a rich but very secret fantasy life...

What aspects of BDSM do you like to explore the most through your erotic romances (submission, bondage, or pain giving or receiving)?
Lately my focus is on working through fear—the fear of honestly exploring one’s true nature and fear of falling in love with the risk of loss. A common theme in that regard is coming to terms with one’s submissive nature and then finding the courage to honestly experience it with a loving dominant guide. In my male/male erotic romances I add the overlay of dealing with homosexuality—how it affects and informs the relationship, especially for someone just coming to grips with it.
