BDSM Bedtime Stories Season Three Episode Three ~ Triage excerpt and Interview

Today, author Tara Crescent is here to share with us an excerpt of her book, Triage. This is narrated by J.A. Rock.  In addition, she sat down for an interview with me.  Listen to our excerpt then check out the interview.






La Crimson Femme: Welcome, Tara!  Thank you for coming today for an interview.  Let’s get right to the point.  What made you decide to write about medical kink?

Tara: Everything I write is a bit of an erotic fantasy for me. For years, I found myself turned on by naughty Doctor stories on Literotica, but didn't really care for the non-consent aspect of it. Finally, I just wrote the kind of story I wanted to read - consensual, with both elements of BDSM and Medical Play, where the woman isn't afraid to ask for what she wants, and the Doctor is happy to oblige. 

La Crimson Femme:  Mmm, and oblige he does.  How did you research the medical kink?  Do you play “Doctor”?

Tara:  *smirks* Apart from reading a bunch of naughty doctor stories at Literotica, I watch an absolutely insane amount of porn and call it research. There's definitely some perks to writing erotica!

La Crimson Femme:  Oooohhh.  I want the links to the best porn you’ve watched.  Wait, is that tax-deductible if you have to pay for it?  When you aren't sure about how a kink would work, how do you research it?  Do you try it out on yourself?  Do you put on a lab coat and test it on someone else with a little clipboard to take notes?

Tara: Wait, do people still pay for porn? I don't. ;) No lab coat. Google mostly. I sometimes ask on forums, but I do take advantage that people have a wide range of reactions to most things, and that lets me take some artistic license. I stay away from writing things I know absolutely nothing about - electricity is one thing I've stayed away from writing about because I have no idea! 

La Crimson Femme: Electricity is fun!  I recommend trying it.  Love it.  So, confess - does your family know you write erotica?  If so, do they know what kind?  Do they read your books?

Tara: I'm completely secret. Only two people in my life know I write erotica, my boyfriend, and one really good friend. Neither have read my books - just not their reading genre of choice. 

La Crimson Femme: Huh.  I’m suspicious of people who don’t read erotica.  Makes me wonder what they do in their free time.  In your free time what do you do?

Tara: Sadly, write. I have a daytime job to pay the bills, and most writing gets done in spare time. But I like to garden (mostly an excuse to sit out in the sun) and I genuinely love to read. A lot of what I've been reading recently has been erotica, but nothing draws me in deeper than a well-written fantasy/sci-fi novel. I remember reading Dune when I was in my early twenties, and I felt physically changed for days after. I love Guy Gavriel Kay's works - I've read Tigana many, many times, and there are scenes that still cause tears to well up in my eyes. That's insanely good writing - the kind that I aspire to. 

La Crimson Femme:  Ugh, the realities of a day job.  I completely understand how that goes.  What is the craziest thing that's ever happened to you?

Tara: A recent bit of embarrassment - I had just finished writing the Professor's Pet - in which the word 'cunt' gets used a lot (no euphemisms for Jake!). Anyway, I was flirting with my boyfriend, and I think, as part of foreplay, I said something like, want me to take off my panties so you can look at my cunt? 

That was received with perfect silence. I don't think he'd ever heard me use the c-word, and he was a little shocked. I was sort of a little shocked myself - I mean, I swear like a sailor, but that's one word that isn't a part of my vocabulary at all. It was mortifying. (The embarrassment didn't last very long though - truth is, he wouldn't be my boyfriend if he's disturbed by frank sex talk.)

La Crimson Femme: I love using that word.  I never understood the taboo of using it.  *shrugs* Do you take real people you know and write them into your stories?  Why or why not?

Tara: In bits and pieces, never whole. There's as much me in my stories as anyone else, probably. The closest I ever got to writing someone in - this one time, I was having a conversation with an acquaintance. She had the best lines. One of them was something about never flipping someone off while driving, because what if he was the One? The moment I got home, I jotted down every line I remembered from our conversation. But in the end, I never used it - it just didn't seem right. 

La Crimson Femme: Aww, well, maybe you’ll use it in the future.  If you had a blank check to go anywhere and do anything, where would you go and what would you do?

Tara: Ooh. Recently, I've been fantasizing about living in either London or Paris for six months. But really, any kind of travel works - I adore travelling, and I can never get enough. (Favorite destination to date - Istanbul.)  

La Crimson Femme: Ah, living in London is fabulous.  I recommend it!  Paris is lovely too.  Final question - are you a Cat or Dog person?

Tara: Ah, my cat runs my life, so definitely, a cat person. (In fact, she threw up on the coffee table as I was doing this interview, and I had to stop typing to clean it up. Cats. Got to love them.)

La Crimson Femme: I know this well.  I’m my cat’s hooman servant.  Thanks again for stopping by!  Hope people enjoy your excerpt.
