“Tell me about Pervertibles: Interviewing the authors of O Come All Ye Kinky” by Sarah Frantz

I had such a great time working with my eight insanely talented authors, I thought I’d extend the my pleasure (which was probably their torture—I’m sure they were wincing at emails from me after a point), and ask them a few questions related to the themes of O Come All Ye Kinky. They all had such amazing things to say, I broke the interview into three different posts.

The first question I asked them was, “What do you like best (and least) about writing BDSM?” The second question was a little longer:

The heroes/heroines in OCAYK are very inventive. What is YOUR favorite pervertible? Or a pervertible you think everyone should know about? Or the weirdest pervertible you’ve ever heard of? What about a favorite/weirdest/most popular holiday pervertible? Basically, tell me something cute about a pervertible. 🙂

Jane Davitt: Even after years of being online and masses of research in the name of accuracy, I’ll still come across a term or item I’ve never heard of and get my boundaries expanded another inch or two on a regular basis. I think the cutest holiday toy would have to be a simple cock ring with a jingle bell attached. There’s something about the cheerful noise of the bell combined with the whimpers of the guy wearing it, desperate to get off, that rings my bells. And of course, if he’s been forbidden to move, that bell’s gonna tattle on him every time!

Joey Hill: My favorite pervertible is a toss-up between the common rubber spatula and a belt. The rubber spatula leaves nice rectangular marks on the flesh, and that somewhat rigid, somewhat flexible rubber makes it a versatile paddle. You can also use it to spread oil on your lover’s skin for a different kind of sensation. With it being rubber, your lover can open wide and hold it in their mouth as a temporary gag or scold piece when they need a reminder of who’s in charge (wink). As far as a belt, it’s amazing the things you can do with a belt beyond sensual punishment. You can tighten it just above a woman’s breasts or nipples to make them more sensitive, you can tighten it around the thighs to hold them closed as you’re having sex with them from behind, you can use the tongue of it for a light slapping of the genitals…

L.A. Witt: I am so vanilla in this department, it’s not even funny. My characters might tie each other up with strands of Christmas lights or use a Rudolph nose for a ballgag, but me? Not so much.

Kim Dare: Everyone should own at least one electric tooth brush that they don’t intend to put anywhere near their teeth—tooth paste optional. It’s perfect to take on holiday if you’re worried about your bag being searched. 🙂

Elyan Smith: My favorite are probably still stacks of books. They’re harder than pillows but if you stack them under your midsection, it puts everything on display nicely while not being the most comfortable thing in the world (I’m probably just cheap and don’t want to invest in furniture. 😉

Ava March: The oddest pervertible I’ve heard of is a balloon. Though that might fall under both the pervertible and the kink categories.

Carrie of Katie Porter: I just watched Die Hard last night. Bruce Willis uses mistletoe-patterned packing tape in order to thwart Alan Rickman. I raised my brows. Hmmm. How very festive! If that tape was strong enough to strap a pistol to Bruce’s toned, sweaty back, it’d be strong to hold other items in place. Wrists… Ankles… Boxes of presents to a distant cousin… All while looking so darn pretty. I’m all about the pretty when it comes to pervertibles!

Lorelie of Katie Porter: I have the ultimate, no fail, omg to-die-for pervertible for the dirty dominant in your life: A Home Depot gift card. Seriously! I’m not kidding. For someone with a dirty mind, that place is a wonderland. Ties and clips and whacky things and binders…. Mind boggling options.

And wait till you read their answers to the final question, about their own favorite toy! Happy Holidays, everyone! May they be happy and as kinky as you want them to be!

More about O Come All Ye Kinky:

Christmas is a time of love and joy, and the New Year is a time of renewal. But they are also times of stress and strife, family drama, pressure and heartache—a potent mix of high expectations and conflicted emotions. Add in power exchange relationships, kinky gift swaps, and unconventional love in a sometimes unforgiving world, and you have a formula for a sizzling anthology of stories that tug at your heart.

From Ava March’s forbidden Regency love between men, to Katie Porter’s scorching hot contemporary tale of two women discovering holiday happiness, everyone will find a favorite here. Pervertible toys abound: Lambda Literary Award finalist L.A. Witt’s candy cane, Jane Davitt’s wrapping paper and tape, and Alexa Snow’s Christmas candles all please and delight. Newcomer Elyan Smith and fan favorite Kim Dare both celebrate New Year’s Eve with romantic flair and kinky fireworks, while bestselling author Joey W. Hill’s poignant story of discovery and commitment will lead you home.

Whatever your desires, we invite you to explore new fantasies and old with these eight kinky tales of holiday happy endings.

20% of all proceeds from O Come All Ye Kinky will be donated to the Domestic Violence Project of the National Leather Association–International. (If you buy the book, digital or print, from Riptide’s website, more money goes to the charity because we’re not paying third-party vendor fees.)

Thanks so much for hosting our tour! I had such a great time editing these authors and then torturing them in interviews. Here’s the first interview (I meant to link in this post, but then did’t get to it on time).

Feel free to ask any questions! 🙂

I think “pervertible” is my new favorite term! And yeah, I can think of a few… [whistles innocently]

Home Depot is THE very best for pervertibles… so true! Love that place. But my current favorite pervertible is a rattan rug beater. So much better than just a straight cane…

WOW and OMG–what a very interesting post, ladies. I have never heard of the term, pervertibles and now I have a new word to add to my vocab. 🙂
And the ideas that these ladies have using orindary household items made me re-think a few things. Such as the spatula and the toothbrush, lol.
I have seen this book floating around different sites, must check it out, as I love kinky times, er…I mean reads.
