To Read BDSM, or Not To Read?—That Is the Question

Bound to Be Dirty by Savanna FoxToday H&H is joined by author Savanna Fox, whose Bound to Be Dirty is out this week. Bound to be Dirty is a book in the Dirty Girls Book Club, where a group of women get together to read different types of erotica—in this book, the married hero and heroine find some inspiration in the book chosen for the club. Savanna's here to discuss why readers like to read BDSM. Thanks, Savanna!

Since the blockbuster success of books like Fifty Shades of Grey and Sylvia Day’s Crossfire series, all levels of kink have become hugely popular among “mainstream” female readers. What is it about this new trend that’s reaching women on such a primal level?

Is BDSM just a different kind of sex between two people who care about one another, or is it abuse? Surely it can’t be abuse, because that’s not something women fantasize about. Clearly, there are issues to be explored, illumination to seek—and what better reason for choosing a book club selection?
