I was thinking about dubious consent. I have been reading the series Dubious. Now, this isn’t the only book or series that I have read that involved dubious consent or what I like to call it, consent with suspicion. For example, when you are trying to convince a child to eat broccoli. They say no, but then the little one gives you a side eye and trys it anyway. One of two things happen, it’s as good as you said, or it as terrible as they think.
Back to the books, I was thinking about the many books that I have read that are dub con or consent with suspicion. One of my favorites is Les Liaisons dangereuses (Dangerous Liaisons) by Pierre Choderlos de Laclos. To bring it forward into present day, I would say that Deviant by Callie Rose and Gaven by J.C. Owens are two of my modern day favorites.
Keep in mind we are only talking about books.
I like it when they but put up a little fight. They have to be convinced to do whatever the act is. It feeds the Domme in me. When they comply, tell them they are good boy or a good girl. This is not a realm in which there is a fight for dominance, it is just convincing the partner that they will like what is planned. The world of fantasy is awe inspiring.
The responses whether it be male or female intrigue me. The appealing part is the psychological dancing that is required for the consent. Deep down you know the character would say “no”, but the actions speak louder than words. I want them to close their eyes and give in. It will be fun. I am only along for the ride.
Regardless of the perspective the book is written in you know they don’t like broccoli and the side eye is strong. They eat and usually it is better than you said it was. On those rare occasions that it is as terrible as they thought is was, well my dear getting your back blown out for the first time can be awful. As they say, practice makes perfect. I am sure Viscount de Valmont would agree.
