Back to Culture An Interview with Felicity Brandon

felicitybrandon Felicity Brandon is, in her own words, a writer of toe-curlin’, salacious stories and creator of the kinky written word…her stories cover BDSM, spanking, submission, humiliation and menage. It’s her aim to write sex which ‘will make angels weep and the devil blush!’. And if you’ve ever read one of her stories you’ll know that’s exactly the kind of BDSM she writes about. Here’s what she had to say in our exclusive interview:

Firstly, I LOVE your work! Your books are brilliantly written, full of hot kinky sex and strong characters. What made you first decide to write in the BDSM genre?
Thank you and let me also say thank you for inviting me on board! I never made a conscious decision to write in any genre. I sat down at my laptop and I started writing… And BDSM erotica is what I penned! They say you write the book you’d like to read, and that is true in my case! I am just editing my first full-length erotic novel and this is truly the book I have always wanted to read!

Describe your book(s) in 3 words…
Captivating sexual surrender.

Why should people buy it?
Firstly my stories are not for everyone. I write about explicit, BDSM and lots of my work will be offensive to some people. However all of my stories (so far) are about consensual power exchange and the complexities of yielding control for mutual sexual and emotional satisfaction. I write in the first-person and unusually in the present-tense. This means that you feel everything from the submissive character’s mouth and you never quite know what is going to happen next… If you enjoy kinky erotica, then why not give me a go?!

The best thing about being a bad ass BDSM Author is…
Waking up every day and just loving what I do! I love to write and to create emotionally complex characters in hot, filthy settings, doing things which set the page on fire!

And the worst…
I have heard that writing is a combination of complete narcissism and crippling self-doubt and I find this so true! Some days I am flying so high I can’t even see the clouds and other days I question every word I write. Fortunately I have a great support network of people in my life who can keep me grounded.

When I think of BDSM I think of…
The undeniable connection between (two) people who share more honesty and commitment than most other relationships. Passion, trust and desire so hot you can start a fire!

What do you think people’s most common misperception of BDSM is?
Mainly that BDSM is only about sex. People never consider the most important facets, like the enormous trust between partners, consent, communication and the constant appraisal of both sets of needs.

How do you rate 50 Shades of Grey and the hype surrounding it?
Personally the books were not my cup of tea, but I did read them. There’s no denying that the series has opened up the idea of kinky sex in a lot of minds. This definitely has a positive impact for erotica and for sex-lives in general!

If you were going to a desert island for six months and could only take 3 items with you what would they be and why?
I’d have to be able to write, so I guess two of my three would be a box of paper and a case of pens! (Does that count?!) Other than that I’d really miss music, so some sort of solar-panelled radio would be ideal.
Personally I don’t think I’d last five days on a desert island, so it may not matter too much!

If you could choose anyone past or present to (willingly) punish, who would it be?
Are we talking erotic punishment? If so then I’d choose me! 😉 If not then I’d choose the next bigot I happened across. Intolerance and bigotry are two of my biggest pet hates.

And likewise who would you reward?
As cheesy as it is I would reward my Mum. She is the most giving and supportive individual and really deserves the recognition.

How important do you regard the use of a safeword?
I think it’s imperative in consensual D/s relationships. Actually I also think most ‘vanilla’ relationships could benefit from a word which means ‘that’s enough – you’ve pushed me too far’. It might save a lot of them.

What’s next for you?
There’s so much to come!
The third and final story in my Kink Between Us series should be out before the end of the year. The first two instalments “Hide & Seek” and “Destination Anywhere” have been really well-received, so I cannot wait to see what people think of the next kinky episode. It’s considerably longer and considerably more perverted than them!
I am also editing my first full-length BDSM novel and I am super excited about this one. Keep an eye on my pages for teasers!
