Readers know that when they pick up an erotic romance, there's a good chance it may come with a heavy dose of kink. But this goes beyond just BDSM. One aspect of kinkery that is rarely explored by erotic romance writers is pony play. An act of dominance and submission, pony play is exactly what it sounds like: the submissive partner acting as a pony and the dominant partner acting as the rider/trainer. Joley Sue Burkhart is one of the few authors who has dared to explore this subject and she's here to tell us what sparked her interest in pony play and why she felt it fit perfectly into her erotic science fiction tale, Her Grace's Stable.
It's all Anne Rice's fault. (That's my story and I'm sticking to it.)
