Oh somehow I managed to mess up the linky list so here's the link to get the other Taboo Tuesday hoppers. http://tdbloghop.blogspot.com/2014/07/rr-8-5.html
I was so excited talking to a few friends about this intriguing short story. I'm sharing a snippet here, but if you really want to read the whole short story and find out what is the taboo that inspired the story- I bet you won't guess it but you can come back on 8/11 (Monday) for the whole wonderfully taboo piece. While this is "extra-novel" (both this snippet and the short story), I picture this to be around story time of book 3 or 4 in my Vala's Story serial. But please enjoy this snippet about a dominant's control over a submissive's orgasm and the seldom acknowledged intricacies of the male orgasm.
"Truth or dare?"
"What?" Gaelan laughed, although the sound danced closer to a nervous coughing.
"Truth or dare?" Vala repeated.
"Truth," Gaelan relented.
"Do you have to have The Queen or our Lord Raanan's permission to masturbate?"
"Um... for some reason, they seem to discuss it every morning, then our Lord Raanan tells me their decision, as if I'm still especially needy because of how Abrecan misbehaved with me, at me."
Vala pressed a soft kiss to Gaelan's cheek. "What was their decision today?"
"I can," he whispered before blinking more tears out of his eyes, "but to come, I need one of them to allow it still."
"To ejaculate or to orgasm? Or do they bother to separate the two?"
