Book Blurb

Isaac and his Master Aubrey have been together for five years. In that time, Isaac has had numerous tattoos and piercings, his master slowly modifying his body, re-creating him. Now, though, his master has decided that it’s time for subdermal implants, pearls to begin with, in a very sensitive area.

Isaac isn’t sure about the idea, but he trusts his master with all of himself and is more than willing to take this journey deeper into body modifications, knowing it will bring them closer than ever. Only time will prove whether his trust is rewarded.

* Body Modifications is part of the Sealed With a Kink series but is a standalone romance.

First edition published by Resplendence Publishing, January 2016.


Book Review

This series about different kinks and the men who enjoy them just keeps getting better. Each book has been both informative and fun, and this latest volume is no exception. As far as I can see, body modifications are more serious than many other BDSM practices because they are pretty permanent. Personally I don’t understand the need to get them in the least, but so many people have them, I must be missing something. Tattoos and piercings are probably the most common in Western society, both on visible parts of the body and in more secret places. As I understand it they can be made for visual appeal and/or for purposes of increasing sexual pleasure.

Isaac, the sub in this story, has been with Master Aubrey for five years. He loves his Master to distraction, and would do anything for him. Tattoos and piercings are nothing new to him, and he has enjoyed every single one. But to celebrate their five years together, Master Aubrey has decided to take things a step further, and Isaac is not at all sure he likes the idea. Pearling, also called genital beading, “is a form of body modification, the practice of permanently inserting small beads made of various materials beneath the skin of the genitals” (Wikipedia). Master Aubrey wants them in Isaac’s cock, and while Isaac is determined to go through with it, he is afraid of not just the pain of the actual implantation, but of the consequences. It will hurt, might look ugly, and his Master might hate it. The only thing Isaac knows is that he will do whatever Master Aubrey asks of him, no matter what. I’ve got to admire that level of submission.

Master Aubrey wants the pearls in Isaac’s cock because he thinks they will be beautiful, that Isaac will love them once he gets used to them, but above all, that they will increase both his and Isaac’s pleasure. I also imagine the idea of his lover letting him make such a drastic change to his body must be very exciting and rewarding. It certainly proves a level of submission that isn’t exactly average! And the resulting activities, once Isaac has healed, are certainly extremely hot and very enjoyable for both partners.

If you want to find out more about pearling, if you’re interested to see what the physical and emotional effects are on both partners in a committed D/s relationship, and if you’re looking for a read that is a little kinkier than most and very, very hot, then you will probably like this short story.
