Hard Limits: What are yours?
If you have read Fifty Shades of Grey or it seems any other BDSM book since, you may be familiar with the contract set out between a Dom and his sub explaining their hard and soft limits; what they absolutely will never ever do and will invoke the safe word and what they might do with a little coaxing. So after a hilarious discussion with the UTC girls one boring Thursday night (Suz!)/late Thursday morning (Fran, Ang & Annie!) we got to discussing what our hard limits for our books were, what situation would have us shrieking out our safe word and chucking the book across the room?
Now, between us we read enough erotic romance to keep the industry going so we like to think we are open minded, and although we might not like to do some of the things we read about, it will probably get us reaching for the nearest vibrator/boyfriend/dildo/husband around to relieve the ache. But we do have some limits, that not even our favourite authors could get us to read and enjoy and here are our top three:
INCEST– It doesn’t come up often, but when it does, the book goes straight in the DNF- Burn Immediately Pile, never to be heard from again.
BEASTIALITY– Why would you do that to a poor animal? This has mainly come up with some shifter stories we have read, and although the wolf may be a man on the inside, that doesn’t mean he can put his wolf tongue or any other wolf parts in your vagina whilst he is furry and you are not. No. BAD DOGGY!
FISTING– It just doesn’t do anything for us; it is like the female equivalent of being punched in the nuts. Not. Sexy. Phallic shaped objects, fingers and (human) tongues only! Why loosen yourself up, no one wants a flappy vagina!
These were our main three, although things like forced seduction and golden showers *cringes* came up as well! So tell us, what are your hard limits?
Books have the power to unite people and that is exactly what happened with us! Our love for books have brought us together and we’ve become good friends in a short amount of time. We “met” online through Goodreads and decided to share our passion of books with fellow book lovers. And that is how Under the Covers came to be…
