I Dare You.
Those three words were all it took to turn me from a vanilla writer who wanted to understand the kinky world she’d been imagining into the real deal—a sub with a love of pain and a need to kneel.
My name is Tiffany Reisz, and I’m kinky. I write BDSM erotica under my real name. And yes, I do my own research. Very pleased to beat you.
I mean “meet” you.
A few years ago while I languished in a conservative southern seminary, I started a little hobby to keep me from climbing the walls. Instead of losing my mind, I started writing erotica as a way to quietly subvert the draconian rules imposed upon us students—no drinking, no partying, no fucking.
So instead of fucking in bed, I fucked on paper. I’d never done real kink before, but for some reason my early sex scenes all involved elements of dominance and submission. The more I wrote, the more power play seeped into my stories. When the time came to start writing my first real novel THE SIREN, I knew my main character needed to be a Dominatrix with a Switch side. I did what any writer does when needing to research a book—I got on the internet. I found a website called Bondage.com and joined. I set up a profile and started talking to people. I labeled myself a sub who wasn’t looking for a partner simply so I could talk to Dominants without them trying to get me into bed.
One Dominant tried anyway.
I’ll call this Dominant B. Master B messaged me one day, and said he lived in a town not far from me. He’d love to meet me, to play a little if I was interested. I told him I was merely there for research for a book. I had no desire to meet a strange man for kink and sex. To which he responded with the three little words that changed my life.
Those three little words have magic powers. Say them to someone vanilla, and they’ll run for the hills. Say them to a woman with kinky desires lurking right under the surface of her skin, and she’ll hit her knees faster than you can say, “yes, sir.”
B was the first of several Dominants (and one super sexy NYC Dominatrix) I played with and learned from. I learned the art of giving and receiving pain. I learned about the almost sacred level of care that a good Dominant takes of his or her submissive. I learned a new way to love. And I learned I could never go back to who I was before.
Oh, and I learned how to write BDSM like it should be written—honestly, erotically, with respect and without flinching. Don’t believe me? Just read THE SIREN.
I dare you.
Tiffany Reisz lives in Lexington, Kentucky with her boyfriend (a reformed book reviewer) and two cats (one good, one evil). She graduated with a B.A. in English from Centre College in Danville, Kentucky and is making both her parents and her professors proud by writing BDSM erotica under her real name. She has five piercings, one tattoo, and has been arrested twice.
When not under arrest, Tiffany enjoys Latin Dance, Latin Men, and Latin Verbs. She dropped out of a conservative southern seminary in order to pursue her dream of becoming a smut peddler. Johnny Depp’s aunt was her fourth grade teacher. Her first full-length novel THE SIREN was inspired by a desire to tie up actor Jason Isaacs (on paper). She hopes someday life will imitate art (in bed).
If she couldn’t write, she would die.
