Speaking of the beginning of the book, it took a bit of getting past for me, in terms of requiring more suspension of disbelief than I’m generally willing to give erotica; in this case, that Kelly discovers her father has been having an affair, so decides that this needs to be corrected with a spanking, administered by her. And it’s not only her father who needs spanking by her, but also her mother for letting it happen, the other woman for leading her father into temptation, and her boyfriend for being in the general vicinity. They all agree to this without hesitation, although nobody enjoys anything.
Most of the story revolves around Kelly’s growth in terms of getting things she wants, with sidelines of Sam, her boyfriend, loving her and at the same time resenting alternately his inclusion in things and his exclusion from things. While polyamorous, their relationship is central, though, and remains strong.
Kelly’s attendance of a BDSM course gives a lot of education, albeit not enough to stop her from talking about her billionaire client, with details, to friends after the fact; given the overall theme of “scene” education that the book has, I was surprised that this breach of confidentiality was — ironically — never punished. Again, for those who are content with a more “fantasy” aspect divorced from reality, this sort of thing will be just fine, of course.
There were a good number of things in the book that made it not for me personally despite my enjoyment of BDSM; the focus on specific kinks that I do not have and are turn-offs for me, such as the relationship Kelly has with her [later we learn, adoptive] father, or medical play in general, which snaps me into an unsexy clinical frame of mind. But then, the book’s stated main purpose is to challenge readers to think about such topics and open eyes to experiences they otherwise might not. It accomplishes that goal.
BDSM is a broad palette, and Freier paints with a lot of it here.
The number of ‘Experiences’ seems endless, thankfully, as Simone escorts us to individual places for sensual erotica. ‘DOMME EXPERIENCE is an intimate exploration of kinks and fetishes by an unlikely couple, with thoughtful and philosophical discussion by the characters, and graphic descriptions of their erotic adventures. Kelly takes the upper hand – in a manner of speaking – exhibiting her dominant side, and impressing her parents and Sam, as roles are reversed. Her formal training as a dominatrix leads to new and unexpected experiences for Sam. Kelly and Sam explore new cultures, and enjoy further adventures with friends, as their world travels continue. Kelly demonstrates her technical and business prowess, and the company that she and Sam founded takes off, changing their lives forever. There are a billion reasons why they should be happy. But they are unaware that a storm is brewing on the horizon. The Experiences series is an epic love story of erotic relationships and sexual desires. Written in a 'literary realism' style, the series introduces Sam in the prequel, and the blossoming of his intimate relationship with Kelly as the series progresses. Fantasies and real-world adventures coalesce to mold a unique bond between unlikely lovers. Where needs are mutually satisfied in an open, creative and trusting environment. Where physical and mental boundaries are pushed. Where the concepts of love and sex are never confused, but sometimes confusing. Where openness is required and intimacy is expected. And where fair-is-fair, regarding the punishment of transgressions’
The pleasure (at least one of the many) of reading Simone’s erotica is her flair for character development and creative sensual situations. She does this with a very open frankness, removing any guilt frame of mind that may hamper some readers not acquainted with Simone’s style of erotica. This is not dark and dirty, simply pushing the boundaries of pleasure by adding some fascinating variations on interpersonal actions. Her stories sing, or as she has stated, ‘where fair-is-fair and mutually satisfying’ to all characters she defines. Read one of her books and you’ll likely collect the set. Grady Harp, May 17
