Review: Through the Dom's Lens
Through the Dom's Lens by Doris O'Connor
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
An erotic photographer with a real woman model? Finally a more real to life BDSM story. In THROUGH A DOM'S LENS, Sally is a normal woman with curves. Curves like the majority of us females possess. She ends up in a rope bondage photo session which makes me envious. Junsako, the photographer, is a delicious dominant looking for a new submissive.
The two characters, Junsako and Sally, are sweet and the chemistry between the two is palpable. This is a romantic erotic fantasy which can actually come true. Based on the few BDSM photographers I've met, their preference in BDSM models for rope bondage are very close to Sally's body type and attitude.
For those who have never seen rope bondage or experienced it, "Twiggy" models used for bondage are neither attractive nor arousing. There is something viscerally sexual when flesh is bound and bulges out due to the ropes. When the rope separates and emphasizes a soft body restrained, it is beautiful for the viewer and sensual for the bound. Ms. O'Connor does a lovely job describing the rope bondage and giving the readers a little taste into the art of Shibari.
Ms. O'Connor packs this novella with some hawt erotic imagery. The dominance scenes Junsako takes newbie Sally through are divine. They are a perfect experience for a curious submissive. Most of the BDSM in this story is focused on sensation play and involve D/s and specifically BD. There is no SM in this story. This erotic novella is recommended as a Gateway to BDSM book, especially for those who love bondage.
