Hot Winter Nights Blog Hop and Contest

1 Dec

Hot Winter Nights Giveaway HopWelcome to the Hot Winter Nights Blog Hop! When I’m feeling the need for a hot winter night, my favorite activity (okay, one of my favorite activities) is to go to the BDSM club or a swinger club.

I’m not actually a swinger, but I really like the atmosphere of the swing club. The people are friendly (well, they’d have to be, wouldn’t they?) and the place we saw was beautiful. In the summer it would probably be really fun to hang out in the outdoor hot tubs and by the fire pits. Unfortunately, the one time I’ve gotten to go to a swing club I didn’t get to the areas with beds and couches—no doubt where the real action was. We stayed up in the lobby area, although that was pretty entertaining, too. Next time I’m hoping to be able to wander around and actually check out what’s going on.

The swing club was completely different than a BDSM club. I have to admit I was a little surprised. There’s some overlap between the two groups, but it’s actually less than I thought, and they have totally different energy. At the BDSM clubs we’ve been to most people are already in their own groups and there’s not a whole lot of switching around or “hooking up.” Granted, there might be more than I’m aware of, but from what I’ve seen most people come as couples or small groups and pretty much stay that way. Singles do come and hook up, but generally (at least while at the club) only for play, not for sex.

If you asked me which one I liked better, I really couldn’t say yet. I’m much more familiar with the BDSM clubs, having only been to a swing club once, so far. The people at the BDSM clubs are more like me (average), as opposed to the “beautiful people” at the swing club. Granted, there was a lot of eye candy there and probably more playful nudity, but I’m not sure how comfortable I’ll be with that in the long run. I really appreciate the kink community for being open and accepting of all sexual preferences, gender identities, body types, sizes and ages. I love that I can dress in ways there that I wouldn’t even consider dressing in public and I feel completely at home and comfortable. I don’t know that I would do that at the swing club. They’re great to look at and flirt with a little, but my dynamic doesn’t involve casual sex, so maybe the kink club will remain my home away from home.

Or maybe I just need to do more research!

After a wonderful review in Exotic Travels Magazine, the BDSM bed-and-breakfast Clifftop Fantasies has been invaded by the charming but undisciplined rock star Daphne Monroe. She has brought her rowdy bandmates and her harassed and overworked manager Finn to film her newest video. Little does she know that she is on a crash course with the troubled and grieving pilot Decker. Will her self-destructive tendencies be stoked by badboy Blaze or will she be tamed by the combined efforts of Finn and the quiet Dominant Decker? Add in an illicit affair with an up-and-coming politician, her appetite for chaos and an unsuspecting leather community and you’ll share in Falcon’s Fantasy.

    Thanks Ladies for your input. We are off to the swing club tonight to help with a “Toy Bag” tour as part of a series of educational classes being put on by the club about BDSM. We’ll let you know how the “research” goes, lol.

    Having never been to either type of club, I appreciate your insights. I used to work in a store where a couple of my customers were owners of a private swing club. They had some great stories to tell.

    A hot winter night to me is either sitting by the fire snuggling under a soft comfy throw just talking or watching a movie with the love of your life…that is heaven! You can’t ask for anything better…

    Thanks for the opportunity to share, meet new authors and perhaps snag new books to read.

    Your research sounds like a lot of fun. A good hot winter night would be with the house dark and the Christmas lights on and a special someone to share it with. Conversation, drinks and what ever we can think of to make the night hotter.

  23. Lisa Walker December 3, 2012 at 7:15 pm #

    Cuddling up by the fire is my favorite!
    Thanks for the chance!

    I think I was born old because the perfect evening involves a warm bath, fresh baked chocolate chip cookies, hot chocolate, and a steamy book.
