Dana has never submitted to anyone but her husband — he trained her, taught her to submit. He’s been dead a year and a half though, and she’s beginning to consider the possibility of dating again. She sticks to vanilla at first, but quickly realizes she’s going to need more. As she’s considering the idea of finding someone who would enjoy hurting her without requiring her submission, her life is complicated by a Dom who pushes all of her buttons.
Safeword: Davenport is the first half of Dana’s story, it’s the personal part of her journey, and has a Happy for Now ending. Safewords: Davenport and Chiffon is scheduled for release August 3, 2012, and will give the rest of her story.
Warning: This title contains graphic language, consensual BDSM, bondage, intense sensory deprivation, extreme electrical play, enemas, and the use of toys including clamps, canes, plugs, cages, paddles, whips, and floggers.
Excerpt (18+ only):
Zach dipped a large ladle into the crock-pot. Quickly and without warning, he brought the dipper up and splashed fiery wax onto her left nipple. It came from high enough so the pain was bearable — until he lowered his hand and made circles around her breast with the stream. Dana tried to shrink into the table to escape the heat as a white spiral was painted up and around, eventually centering on her nipple and she gasped at the sensation of fire enveloping sensitive nerve endings.
There’d been no intense pain yet, just hot and cold, pleasure and discomfort. She felt more alive than she could remember feeling in an extremely long time.
Zach stopped a moment, looking into her eyes and bending down to kiss the tip of her nose before dipping the ladle again and giving her other breast the same treatment.
Next came the green pillar candles, and he drew designs on her stomach and inner thighs — squiggles and spirals and curlicues with dashes and dots linking them, her squeals and moans becoming background music to the dance he was choreographing with the flame and wax.
He moved the large cheval mirror to the base of the bondage table, angling it to give her a good view of her torso and legs — her clit and pussy peeking out from between relaxed lips dotted with wax. Dana’s reflexes struggled to pull her knees together at the sight, and she was both frustrated and comforted when her bonds held firm.
She groaned as Zach reached for another piece of ice, her apprehension growing as his tongue snaked around the corners, rounding them, while his eyes dared her to look away.
She tried to withdraw into the table as his hand moved towards her pussy, cold touching the outside of her lips, running up and down the right side a dozen times, then the left. The fingers of his other hand spread her open, giving him room to swirl the ice in circles around her clit.
She sucked air into her lungs, wanting it to stop, needing it to continue — her passions blazed beyond lust and she didn’t know what to yearn for. It didn’t matter, she was tied down and at his mercy, experiencing only what he chose to give her.
The circling stopped and the cold stayed on the left side for several heartbeats before moving to the right. Freezing it. Right side, left side, right, left. Top.
She screamed, her voice filling the room, spreading out into the darkness. It was too much; she couldn’t… the intensity slid away from her clit and into her depths, freezing her inside. Her eyes opened to his hand dipping the ladle, and seconds later hot wax poured onto her clit and she howled in silence as an orgasm claimed her breath as well as her body, rocking her insides since her outsides were bound motionless.
Biting ice was followed by liquid fire, surrounding and encasing. The pain drew her under, taking over her senses, allowing her to sink beneath the soft luxury of it. Her lower body jerked in the bindings, her hands moved the few inches allowed, and her stomach muscles writhed as they battled the enforced immobility. She screamed at the pleasure and torment and overwhelming sensations, the orgasm fighting her restraints as it rolled through her body.
