As followers of her blog already know, the writings of Ferns are highly erotically charged. Each chapter of “Domme Chronicles” reads like a short steamy meditation on female domination.
Ferns has a gift for perverting vanilla. Simple acts like kissing, touching, bathing or being undressed become deeply kinky explorations. BDSM activities are usually kept simple, a belt, a blindfold, a length of rope and thou. Ferns is primarily interested in the mental, physical and emotional reactions of her playmates. This is female domination with minimal props required.
That is not to say all of the play described in “Domme Chronicles” is of the light sensual variety. In “First Time” Ferns whips an arrogant boy until he is transformed into a “begging, wanting, beautifully vulnerable thing”. She is transformed by his transformation and the experience is something of a revelation. By the end she reaches the conclusion; “I have to get me some more of that!”
Ferns delights in the sweet spot between tenderness and cruelty. Many of the meditations in “Domme Chronicles” are sensual, wistful and romantic with just enough control applied by the female dominant to push the action into the realm of SM. She delights in the the subtle nuances of seduction and the reactions of her play partners which she often describes as igniting her hunger. Speaking of hunger, Ferns is very oral. Kissing is a frequent recurring theme in “Domme Chronicles”. Be warned though. She also likes to bite!
In “Domme Chronicles” the woman is always in charge, always in control and always on top. Ferns likes her men “sweet, grateful, vulnerable” and “expectant.” They are her playthings to do with as she pleases. She never allows them to get too comfortable. They have to earn the privilege of serving and suffering for her.
Ferns enjoys putting her subjects in predicaments, keeping them in suspense and making them wait. “It amuses me to make you wait” she writes in “Good Morning”. “I can feel your impatience crackling between us.” In “Putting Him To Bed” she delights in the thought of her sub tied to the bed thinking of her and unable to sleep. In “Card Game” the destiny of a sub depends on what card he draws from the deck. Will chance dictate a fate he desires or fears? She likes to keep her subs and her readers guessing.
If you are (like me) a submissive man curious to understand the female dominant perspective “Domme Chronicles” is a book you will enjoy reading. It may also prove an excellent gift for that special lady you want to turn onto D/s. This is BDSM taken from a feminine and extremely sensual point of view. Some of these vignettes seem right out of a romance novel. Except the roles are reversed. The woman is the seducer. The man is her target. Exactly as it should be.
