Some dares and prompting of friends led me to the role of author and they've always been my biggest cheerleaders.

“That had been David’s motto apparently. He’d never even suggested Jeremy try S&M or B&D or LMNOP. Whatever the hell it was called. Good thing, he supposed, since while he was all about “whatever floats your boat,” he was certainly vanilla in the sex department; maybe butterscotch ripple, but definitely not rocky road”
