Kay Jaybee is a prolific author of considerable renown who specializes in writing kinky books and short stories. Her latest collection of three short erotic stories, Tied to the Kitchen Sink, is an exercise in fanciful erotica with D/s overtones that will please both her current and future fans. None of the vignettes in this slim volume are meant to mirror real life, but by no means does that stop them from being sexy and enjoyable reads.

The title story involves a young man coming home to find a naked woman chained to his kitchen sink, a birthday present from his roommate, who is discreetly absent. For reasons not adequately explained, this scenario is one of his favorite fantasies and sort of dovetails into the woman’s as well. Before this very short story concludes there is a bit of spanking with a wooden spoon and the suggestion that some sort of waxing fun will be in the offing.

Next up is Becky, a story that portrays an outrageously depraved work environment, in which a strict disciplinarian boss rules his employees through corporal punishment and sexual humiliation. Even for times prior to sexual harassment laws, this scenario is way over the top, yet as a fantasy it is powerfully erotic. Whereas it is not really possible to suspend disbelief while reading this story, it is easy to be aroused by the actions taking place in it.

The Bad Poet is a somewhat lyrical tale of the seduction of a prospective submissive by a determined domme, which takes place initially by email. She sends her prey a technically flawed poem describing what she will do to him when he comes to her lair, knowing he will be intrigued enough to accept her invitation. The scenario that unfolds when he shows up and succumbs to her persuasive charms is memorably erotic–without a doubt the highlight of the entire book.

About Jim Lyon

Jim Lyon began writing erotica in the mid 1990s and served as story editor for the now-defunct Ownme.com before his first femdom-themed erotic novellas, Uncharted Territory and The Accidental Domme, were published as e-books by Sizzler Editions. Jim is originally from the San Francisco Bay Area. He left high school in his senior year to live the bohemian life in New York City's Greenwich Village and Lower East Side. Not being a big fan of cold weather and crowded tenements, Jim returned to the West Coast within six months and lived in Berkeley during the tumultuous mid to late 1960s and early 1970s. While there, his claims to fame include being folksinger Malvina Reynolds' neighbor/tenant and part owner of the Northside Theater, a repertory cinema of considerable renown. After leaving Berkeley, Jim put himself through college and earned a B.A. in Journalism from USC. His eclectic career since then has encompassed editing, writing, business management, social work, teaching, and web publishing, with stops in northern and southern California, Hawaii, Florida and Oregon.
