Introduction: Ready to Say Yes (Sir)
When I started working on Yes, Sir, I didn't expect the title phrase to be taken as a literalmotto, but more as a call to arms (or rather, to surrender one's arms) forsubmissive women who seek out dominant men. I intended Yes, Sir and its companion volume Yes, Ma'am to be the bottoms' answers to my previous collections, He's on Top and She's on Top, to showcase our fantasies, desires, and deepestwishes. I wanted those of us who love to be tied up, spanked, blindfolded,bound, or "used" for another's pleasure, to tell it like it is, to explore whyand how we get off in these ways, and the authors presented here gave me what Iwas looking for--and more.
Here you'll find all sorts of women for whom their personalSirs (or Masters or Daddies) hold the reins to their erotic pleasure. For them,saying yes (or a bratty, defiant no for which they'll be duly punished) is aspowerful as a good, hard smack on the ass. They give up control in all kinds ofways, letting their doms decide who they'll fuck to when they'll come, to whichcolor panties are acceptable--and which aren't. In one of these stories (you'llhave to keep reading to figure out which one), playing at Sir, having yourlover become the Sir of your dreams when real life may dictate otherwise, letsthe two players take their kink to a whole new level.
Some are old pros at BDSM, and have had many masters, whilefor others, the language of domination and submission is a novelty. They maynot know exactly why they thrill to being told what to do, but they now forsure that they like it, as in the case of the newbie in "Sitting on Ice Cream."D.L. King's Libby overcomes her natural shyness in "The Day I Came in Public,"proving that the very acts she first scoffs at are ones that give her no end ofdelight. It's almost as if the doms who enter their lives see the potential forsubmission in these women, and want to bring it forth for their own naughtymotives, along with making the women come harder than they ever have before.
The inherent power dynamics of the classroom are brought tolight in Donna George Storey's "Dear Professor Pervert," a story in which, onceofficial class time ends, the real learning (about everything from masturbationto butt plugs) begins, as well as in Lisabet Sarai's "Body Electric," wherein aprominent professor shows a colleague his very intriguing "apparatus." InSommer Marsden's "In the Corner," the man who first introduced Amelia to kinklures her away from her current "nice guy" date.
These women aren't pushovers by any means. They make rulesand negotiate with their masters, though sometimes they also get off on beingpushed just a little too far by men they know they can trust. In "The Art ofDarkness," Alison Tyler writes, "Once Killian understood my fear, his missionbecame not to save me from my phobia, but to exploit it, every chance hecould." She objects, but when she finally surrenders, she experiences a wholenew world, where a blindfold is the path to ecstasy. And the woman who lets herman dictate her meals in Elizabeth Coldwell's delicious "Lunch"? Well, sheknows exactly what she's doing. "I could go home and just tell Michael I'd doneas he instructed. But he would know. He always knows when I try to disobey him,however careful or sneaky I try to be." In other words, she's not doing what hesays simply because he says it, but because something inside her gets off onobeying. So too in Shanna Germain's story, the protagonist makes an activechoice to go where her inner ache to submit compels her: "'Follow,' he said.Something in me resisted, but the power of his voice, the way he walked awayfrom me as though he knew I would trail after him, made it so I couldn't sayno." And the woman getting fucked on the sofa in Maddy Stuart's short, sexytale flinches at the words slut and whore, even as her body responds tothem. This duality, with the brain protesting but the blood rushing to thesurface, is also part of the thrill of submission, especially for strong,powerful women.
These writers make clear just how much their characters getoff when they say "Yes, Sir," whether literally or figuratively. Sure, they maybe doing their masters' bidding, but the masters are often doing the subs'bidding, in their own way, as well, making them ache, moan, quiver, and, yes,come. They know just how to draw out their subs' pleasure (and pain), how tomake the most of a woman whether she's on her knees, or bent over, or at hercomputer waiting for the next command. They know that denial, temptation, andfrustration can be the most arousing acts of all. They know that, as TeresaNoelle Roberts puts it, "The Power of No" can often be just as hot as the powerof yes.
Gwen Masters asks in her title, "How Bad Do You Want It?" I turn that questionover to you, dear reader. How bad do you want to be bound, gagged, spanked, orslapped? How bad do you want to have your hair pulled, your nipples clamped,your body strung up? How bad do you want to pant, gasp, scream, and squirm? Howbad do you want to turn over some part of yourself to a man just dying to stripyou bare and take you somewhere you've never been? I don't know about you, butI want all of those things, very much, and, I'm thankful to say, I (and you)have them all right here. Just turn the pages, and be prepared not to get upfor a good long while.
