#SeductiveSnS ... Vala's Bisexuality Becomes Evident?

Seductive Studs and Sirens... a blog hop for LGBT romance, erotica, and erotica romance... 150 words of love from a non-heterosexual perspective. Enjoy my post and then check out the other hoppers with the links below.

I'm doing something a little bit different today. I'm sharing from the blog tour posts for "Gates of the Garden: Book Two"- release expected soon. Repeatedly this very question has caused issues for me in picking snippets for this hop. What does it mean to have a bisexual or another non-monosexual identity? Take a look at my consideration for the tour post- and this hop...

"So if I'm to share a snippet from "Gates of the Garden: Book Two" here, what do I share? Do you need to see Vala engaged in sexual activity with a man and a woman at the same time? In part, I say that her bisexuality becomes more obvious in "Gates..." because in this book, there are more times when she's involved sexually with "both" genders than she was shown in "...Night...". This question mirrors some of the difficulty in my own life, where appearances can seem to say my life is hetero-normative."

Interested in an opportunity to win a free copy of my first book, "Out of the Night: Book One"? Check the details out here! http://joellecasteel.blogspot.com/2014/08/two-sexy-snippets-and-contest.html


  1. I'm new to this blog, but I'd say the desire would be to see non-hetero desires at work. This might be in thought or emotion only, but I believe the idea here is to share the beauty of love that we don't usually see out there in our culture at large. Of course it's challenging (impossible?) to show the complicated reality of a 3-D character like Vala in 150 words, but a glimpse adds to the fabric of the beautiful tapestry we're weaving with our words.

    1. thanks for the comment, Alexis. Yeah, challenging, within 150 words. Like I'll look at a scene where Vala is engaged in sexuality with her domme and so it would seem a FF scene... until The Queen wakes up from his nap and joins his girls, making the interaction MFF. I realized though, thinking about this post, that I don't think Vala ever says "I am bisexual"- for her, sexuality is a fluid thing, more controlled by the BDSM hierarchy in which she lives, whether than the gender identity of those she's intimate with
