Mr. Wilkes makes his will known: Emily's Shameful Ride is coming soon!

It's time at last for the next book of EXPLORATIONS proper. In the 29th book, Emily's Shameful Ride, the defloration of deflorations takes place for Victorian Emily, upon a device traditional in the "great drama" Emily has discovered: the bride-saddle. At the same time, in the modern story, fantasy-Emily is rendering shameful service to three of her husband's junior colleagues--I promise an excerpt from that plot for Friday!

I'll give you the tiniest of teases from the Victorian scene to whet your appetite:
He sniffed the air, and smiled. Then he insinuated the tip of his middle finger within the bottom he held, so far that I gave a startled cry, and leaped away from him a little. 
“Now, my dear,” he said, letting go of my hand, “you must make up your mind to it, or it will go very hard with you. I am renowned among my friends for my enjoyment of a trollop’s confusion at having her reluctance overcome and her bottom ravished, when she hesitates to give the full measure of the service I have paid for.”
And the blurb shall be revealed, of course!
Edmund’s bride-saddle, which had never been used before, had no built-in fascinus, and so I was spared at least the menacing sight of the upthrust deity, though I was to learn not many days later that the cover of the saddle could easily be changed to reveal the ring into which would be set any of a number of fittings, and I was to learn also that a recent revolution in the manufacture of bride-saddles had brought it about that these rings were now standardized in such way that girls could be required to bring their own fascini to any occasion, and then forced to fit them to the house’s saddle themselves, and mount.  
In the 29th book of Explorations, Victorian Emily's ultimate defloration occurs atop her husband's bride-saddle, while in fantasy-Emily continues her shameful service to her husband's junior colleagues. 
This book of Explorations contains fiction elaborating the following sorts of fantasy that you may wish to avoid: Mf, MMMf (no sex among the Ms), anal, spanking, watersports. It's intended for over-18 audiences who, like me, are interested in exploring the lines between pleasure and pain, dominance and submission, and fantasy and reality. All characters depicted are consenting adults. 
The Explorations series is a unique take on BDSM above all because of the strong individual voice of Emily Tilton herself, manifestly shaping the fantasy-elaborations of the series. Because Emily is interested in helping herself and others understand how BDSM can be lived within a mostly vanilla existence, the way most of us have to live it, Explorations has a unique element that Emily hopes will set it apart and make it useful: Emily has created a fantasy-version of herself (keeping to the tropes of the genre she knows so well, fantasy-Emily is an eighteen-year-old virginal bride with a self-abuse "problem"), whose fantasies and "realities" are the central subject of the stories of Explorations--but the real Emily also keeps her authorial, real voice in the margins, explaining and analyzing, and revealing from time to time the much more mundane, real version of the things Emily has transformed in the story of her fantasy-self. This doubling of the "I" in the first-person narrative of Explorations makes the series worth exploring all on its own. Come for the hot D/s, spanking, anal action. Stay for the exploration.


  1. Okay, now I'm curious. What's a fascinus? Yes, I know I can Google, but asking you is more fun.

    Oh, and just because it will make your day:

    EMILY!!! :D

    1. I love you, Ana. "Fascinus" is the origin of our word "fascinate," strangely enough. Once you read the Wikipedia article, you will never use that word the same way again.
