Quite some time ago, I got involved in an IM conversation with a friend who had asked me the question "Why on earth would someone want to be a submissive in a BDSM relationship? What would the submissive possibly get out of it?"

After thrashing around for a while trying to find an answer, I decided to write a short story about BDSM from the point of view of a submissive.

The person I was talking to really liked the story, and suggested that I should write more erotica.

So I started writing on Literotica, and the things I wrote became very popular--much more so than I would have expected. (For a very brief time, a few years back, I had the most read and the highest-rated story on the site.)

So I kept at it, and write a pair of eBooks about a relationship between a highly repressed woman and the man who married her in order to train her as a sex slave. These eBooks got so popular on Amazon that they're paying my rent now.

And now, they're actually real, things-you-can-feel, dead-tree books.

Imagine my surprise.

Anyway, I have some promotional copies of these books, which I've made available on my Web site as a two-book set. Which, if you like, I will autograph for you under my pen name. Check it out!

Ouch! And strangely, it previewed okay. Thanks, fixed now!

I take it that meant your argument was appropriately convincing.

Is the nature of the book such that if I have clients bring up 50 Shades of Grey, I can point them in this direction for a more healthy representation of BDSM?

Well, I personally would consider it more healthy (and the sexual activities in it more realistic) than 50 Shades. Both this and 50 Shades are, at their core, consensual non-consent stories, though, which might not be to everyone's tastes.

Awesome! (Inserts your story in the big wish-list of Things I'll Buy When I Have The Money)

Congratulations! I went to get them for the kindle, but I can only find volume 1 on Amazon. Can you link me to the second volume? I've always enjoyed reading what you've written and look forward to these!

Huh, interesting. If you do a search for William Vitelli, you find one of the books for Kindle but not the other. Weird.

The first volume for Kindle is at

The second is at

As a broke college kid who want to buy this but can't -- do you have any objections to revealing your literotica handle?
