Dominant women are probably the most misrepresented BDSM caste in erotic literature, and sub men are in the same category. Not because they don’t exist; because there is a severe disconnect between what readers think is a Dominant woman/sub man relationship and the real thing. This workshop will cover some of the stereotypes associated with Dominant women and submissive men, and compare those stereotypes to reality. We’ll discuss the ways these misconceptions have poisoned readers against Dominant women and submissive men, and we’ll discuss ways erotica authors can begin to change those misconceptions. Authors will be given some real-life examples of how Dominant women conduct themselves, and be given an opportunity to ask questions and learn from a practicing Domme. This will be an interactive presentation, since authors and participants will be encouraged to ask questions and build on discussions as they happen.
