“Vanilla people are very quick to judge what they don’t understand.”
Yolanda Olson, Bones

“It was the way he looked at me when he climbed on top of me that excited me the most. The look of pure dominance that told me that this was going to go his way and not mine made me so eager for it that I pulled him down gruffly toward me and kissed him deeply.”
Yolanda Olson, Rebound

“For now, I want you to just sit there. I’ll let you know when you have permission to touch me, permission to touch yourself, and when the time comes, permission to come,”
