Beautiful C*cksucker by Barbara Sheridan

Ray is a New York police officer who has to be the "guardian angel" of a Japanese inspector during his business related visit. Ray is not happy with the idea, but when he sees "Miki", the wonderful Japanese woman he needs to escort he changes his mind. And he needs to change it again when he discovers that Miki is not a woman, but a man, and that he is also a Master in BDSM dungeon. Miki is not new to New York, he studied in the city during College and he still has some friends who would like to visit. Friends who manage a club outside the city limit. And he wants Ray to be his partner for the night.

Even if Ray has never had an homosexual experience, he has no problem to admit that he is attracted by Miki, maybe helped by the fact that the man is really handsome and almost without gender. But when it arrives to sex, Miki is not female at all, and Ray has to arrive to pact with his inner side, not only to surrender to a man, but also to surrender the upper hand in the sexual relationship.

I don't know if Barbara Sheridan is planning something else for these two characters, but it seems to me that Ray's step toward the dark side it would not possible or right only for a week-end fling. For Ray is more difficult to accept the type of D/s relationship that Miki is offering, than to accept to have sex with another man; and it's not strange this approach, since having sex with a man could be a passing thing, above all since Miki is so beautiful that is over the boundaries of sex, but entering the BDSM world is not something to take with lightness.

Anyway the story is not so long, 44 pages, and so it's possible that this is only prologue of a longer story.

Re: On the Title
How well are those titles doing? I would find them equally offensive, believe me.

And like this title, those words are often the prelude to violence.

Re: On the Title
Don't know how well they are doing, but if I try to understand if they are novel or something else, and I believe to find some romance between them. From my exeperience as reader I found often the term "s*ut" in a sex scene, and also "bi*ch" sometime, and also "co*ksucker* (but not in the title). As a woman I will not use it neither in private, but I'm absolutely a complete different person from the character.

Re: On the Title
Well, I use all of them in private! *_^

But I would not use any of them as the title of a published book.

Re: On the Title
I also don't agree that "bitch" is sexually related. It's just a word like "jerk" or "bastard" or "dickwad" and is used to describe someone with a rotten personality. Jerk, bastard, dickwad are for male jerks and bitch just happens to be the female version. Nobody blinks twice at its usage because you're not targeting specific groups when you use "bitch."

I think words like "slut/manslut" and "whore/manwhore" are considered ok to use (in sex scenes) because they're really just saying the person is sexually promiscuous. However, "cocksucker" does not say that. "Cocksucker" is just like "dyke," "fairy," etc. It has nothing to do with promiscuity and does not sound sexy at all. It's a discriminatory word.

I appreciate that not everyone has the same views on word meanings, especially in different cultures/countries, but for me the words you mention have much greater weight. While 'bitch' may not be sexual, I'm afraid I disagree that it just equates to something as lightweight as 'jerk'! Titles such as 'bitch', 'slut' or 'whore' are not often used in a positive light, regardless of whether it's a sex scene, and are generally critical and derogatory to the individual they are addressed to. As said above about 'cocksucker', they can also be the sort of 'name calling' that happens just before violence.

Sorry to go a little off topic!
