My girlfriend just wondered out loud if she should read Fifty Shades of Grey because it "sounds hot." She's never tried BDSM, so yay! However I've heard that is thoroughly disappointing from both a writing and a kink perspective. Can you recommend some hot straight BDSM fiction that might be a good alternative to Fifty Shades?

This Is Meaningful

I'm not really up on the latest and greatest hetero BDSM litporn, TIM, so I can't offer any recommendations. But superstar sex blogger and pro-porn feminist Violet Blue posted a long list of hot alternates to Fifty Shades over at her blog Tiny Nibbles. Enjoy!
