Hm, my bulletproof kink? Something I will read no matter what? The closest I come to that would be a menage story. I love the idea of two men (I’m good with up to three, after that it gets a little too much for me) and one woman. Having the complete attention of two or three men? Very exciting. Their touch, their kiss, their every move with one goal in mind-to get her flying so high she never comes down.
I like it best when the men share a relationship, for me that gives it that extra kick. There is just something sensual about her watching her two strong men together. Hm, I wonder if there is a touch of a voyeur in me…;). But the two men together is not a must. The one thing it has to have is a happy ending for EVERYONE. I am not a big fan of the third who just joins in for a few kicks and giggles. It can be sexy, but somehow I always feel sorry for the one who then watches the couple walk down the aisle.
Still, I need to enjoy and like the characters, and the story has to be plausible. No deus ex machina (or deus ex macarena as a friend calls it;), no TSTL and no So-Alpha-He’s-A-Jackass hero. And the words need to be good, just as Denise said;). The sex scenes need to flow (no trying to figure out where her leg is and how his hand ended up there).
The second thing I check out on a man, after the sexy abs or the cute smile, whatever captured my attention first, are his hands. I love long fingers with clean nails. No matter how absolutely gorgeously hot the body is, if the fingernails are long or dirty, it turns me off. And I’m not talking about a mechanic who’d scrubbed his fingers, but couldn’t get everything off. I’m talking about not caring, about being unkempt.
But when he has those long, strong fingers, maybe with a slight roughness to them? Oh-la-la! Imagining them stroking across my skin and other parts of my body…
Is there something your other half has to have?
I’m not that kinky and I don’t write it, so I struggled to come up with a post about my bullet-proof kink. I had to ask myself what I have hidden away that I don’t let my relatives or grandchildren to see? What’s in my closet? Over 300 volumes of Japanese yaoi – all heat levels, some more porn than story.
Yaoi is Japanese boy’s love comics written by women for women.
Usually a seme and uke form the couple – seme is the top and uke, well you guessed it, is the bottom. There are mangaka (Japanese comic illustrators and writers) that draw very explicit and steamy sex scenes, genitals and all. They are realistic and the men don’t look like ‘Ken’ dolls when naked. Some fan favorite mangakas for erotic yaoi are Youka Nitta, Yuki Shimizu, Ayano Yamane, Megumu Minami, Kazuma Kodaka. Ayano Yamane and Megumu Minami use all sorts of sex toys and the ukes many times will find themselves tied up and in a, uh, uncompromising situation.
Be warned. Japanese sensibilities are very different from the American mind-set. Some of it will offend. Anything and everything is fair game in yaoi so you need to sort through and find what works for you.I go for the ‘best friends fall in love’ and the ‘business men’ theme where the seme is handsome, wealthy, arrogant and falls hard for the equally attractive, but hard as nails, uke. I don’t like the uke to look like a boy but I don’t mind an older feminine looking uke, either.
When I want to have a little porn in my life, or a little sweet romance, I get out my favorite dog-eared manga and I’m a happy fangirl.
