Well before "50 Shades of Grey" hit the stands, there was Darker Pleasures.
From 1999 to 2010, Darker Pleasures was an Internet-leading erotic web magazine specializing in original short stories written by some of the Internet's best known erotic authors as well as photographs, art, video and articles --all focusing on breast-oriented punishment and bondage.
In 2011, Darker Pleasures began revising and expanding those stories and distributing them through Smashwords.
Our tales are for dominant men and women who enjoy hard female bondage and BDSM and who fantasize about cutting loose, as well as for the women who fantasize about being bound and subject to the darker side of sex. Orgasms come with a balance of pleasure and pain that may tip the scales either way depending on the whim. Some of our authors are more than happy to explore rape fantasies, and consent is not always so cut and dried.
And - beginning in 2014 - you can look for stories that take place on the other side of the coin. Our Blue Label femdom line puts men on the receiving end, with dominant women inflicting CBT and other sadistic fun.
Either way, Darker Pleasures publishes professional short stories and anthologies with well-written plots and to-the-point bondage and punishment that push taboos the direction you want them to go. If you're looking for a lot of romance, tickling and feathers, look somewhere else. If you're looking for cutting edge bondage and erotic sado-masochistic fantasy, Darker Pleasures is your place.
No matter what you buy, you get great, bite-sized BDSM erotica at a price that won't break the bank during these economically-challenged times.
