Letting Our Vanilla Friends in on Our Secret!


My hubby and I recently decided to let some of our friends in on our secret. It was actually getting kind of difficult not to, since they know that I'm a writer, and were always asking what I write and where they could find my books!

The first person we told is a friend of mine that I went to school with, and have known for years. I had actually wanted to tell her for awhile that my hubby and I are into spanking. It should have been easy to bring up in conversation, especially since she knows I'm a writer. But what I hadn't told her is that I write spanking novellas! But since I now have a website, I figured it would be the perfect opportunity to let her in on our secret. So, when she asked to see my website, I gave her the address. Admittedly, I was a little nervous about what she might think, but actually, she thought it was totally cool! She said that spanking isn't something that she and her hubby have ever tried, but that she'd read the different excerpts and was intrigued by the whole idea! In fact, she even bought one of my books! Wow! Guess she's not as vanilla as I thought!

The second person we told is a guy that has been friends with my hubby for years. He and my hubby were talking on the phone the other day about the usual stuff when he asked my hubby how the writing was going. My hubby told him great, and that I even have my own website now. Of course, his friend wanted to see it! My hubby didn't give him the address right then, though, because he wanted to ask me if I'd mind, which I thought was very sweet. I told him that I didn't, so he sent an email to his friend with my website address and the warning, "prepare to be shocked!" That totally made me laugh! Later, my hubby told me that his friend had called him and said that he and his wife are glad to know that my hubby and I aren't as vanilla as he thought we were! Go figure! LOL!

Glad things turned out well but I really don't think there is much anymore in our world that would shock someone.
