BDSM interviews: Colette Davison

Q&A with Colette Davison about her novel A Dance for You, the appeal of submission for control freaks, and the liberating experience of writing BDSM stories 🙂

What do you want readers to know about your book?

It’s awesome! LOL! Seriously, I loved writing this book. It’s a lot lighter in tone than my previous books and I absolutely adore Mason and his wide-eyed enthusiasm for life. I hope everyone enjoys reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it.

The main character, David, wants to open his lover’s eyes to the kinks that he enjoys. In your opinion, what is the best way to let your lover know that you’re into something kinky, so it wouldn’t be awkward?

I think openness and honesty is really important. Some people are naturally more open-minded than others, but if you’re in a good relationship, you should have a feel for how receptive your lover will be to your kinks.

What is the most interesting thing about Dom/sub dynamics for you? And what misconceptions about it have you encountered?

The power dynamics are very interesting. I like the concept that someone who needs to be in complete control of their day-to-day life can relinquish all their control whilst be a submissive. I’m a natural control freak, so that’s very appealing to me.

The biggest misconception I’ve encountered is that the Dom/sub dynamic is abusive. I can understand how people might think that, especially with the representation of BDSM in certain mainstream novels/films.

Do you prefer writing about mild kinks or heavy kinks (and why)?

A Dance For You is the first novel I’ve written with BDSM themes. I’ll admit, it was a more liberating experience than I thought it would be! The kinks are fairly mild within the book and that’s the level I’m happy writing at right now. I’m sure that will change as I write more books!

What was most fun to write about – and what scenes turned out to be challenging?

I especially loved writing the sensory scene, as it was so intimate and sensual.

The blowjob scene was the most challenging in the book. I wanted to make absolutely sure that it was safe and consensual, whilst also being sexy. I think I rewrote that scene about six times before I was finally satisfied with it.
