Nothing like toy shopping for the Christmas season, right? Of course, my online browsing had a different purpose to it this year. In “Submissive Angel,” my story contribution to the O Come All Ye Kinky anthology, my Dominant hero is a vintage toy store owner, and the male submissive he wants to finally make his own is his employee, a young man who came to him from the streets. During the course of the evening, Robert will use hobby horses, Lincoln Logs, Christmas lights and ribbon, as well as paraffin candles, to pleasure and control Ange, and Ange is only too happy to submit.

Having a hard time visualizing some of that? Well, I’m not above offering a few teasers. Robert unscrews the heads of two hobby horses and uses the sticks to form a combination ball clamp and spreader bar for Ange’s thighs. The Lincoln Logs are spacers so poor Ange doesn’t get pinched too cruelly. Robert also wraps him in vintage Christmas lights and uses the paraffin candle wax (not at the same time—what a mess!) to give Ange the pleasure of a mild burn against tender flesh. I’m not going to share how the ribbon is used, because you might enjoy the surprise of that one. Like all good Christmas stories, however, there’s snow, mistletoe, dancing, and the rediscovery of love, because Robert didn’t think he’d open his heart to another again, and Ange is just too irresistible.

Anyhow, back to my main subject. I was looking for more than pervertibles when I went browsing. Robert is a peculiar fellow. In fact, when he’s struggling with whether or not he should make a move on Ange, this is the thought that goes through his head:

“Oh, fuck it. He was a childless, gay, nearly-forty-year-old man who wore a bow tie and suspenders and collected rare toys. All he needed was a cranky little dog to complete the stereotype, but he was allergic. What was holding him rooted to this spot was fear of loss, and Robert knew how irrational that was.”

I wanted readers to experience some of Robert’s regard for toys of the past, and so a few are mentioned in the course of the story. One of the first ones introduced is a jockey/horse balance toy, where a counterweight is used to rock a wooden horse back and forth on a table top so he looks as if he and his rider are racing. Also, at one point, Ange and an elderly customer are on the floor, racing ”cars of the future,” friction cars that shoot out real sparks and roar when they fly across the floor…

These toys took me back to simpler times, when toys couldn’t rely on batteries or computer chips to hold attention. Of course, as I wandered through the online collectible category, I found a toy that both charmed and titillated. I’ve included a picture of it in this post (you were wondering when I’d get to that, right?). This is a cast iron toy (a serious collectible, being auctioned for well over four figures), and depicts a chimney sweep and a baker, but how can you miss the BDSM look here? Okay, maybe I’m a little too immersed in this genre, but doesn’t that sweep look like a flogger? Even the demeanor of the two fits. The chimney sweep looks stern and forbidding all in black, while the baker is like a gentle and jovial sub!

I hope you’ll put O Come All Ye Kinky underneath your tree, because like this kind of toy, the stories are designed to charm and titillate…as well as engage your heart. Read them with a loved one and then make use of your own Christmas “toys”!


Here’s the blurb for my story, “Submissive Angel:”

After Robert found Ange bleeding in an alley, he employed the man in his vintage toy store as an act of charity. However, this Christmas, the eccentric young dancer will offer his thanks—and himself—to teach a brokenhearted Master how to open his heart to love again.

And here’s what you can expect to find in the anthology as a whole:

Christmas is a time of love and joy, and the New Year is a time of renewal. But they are also times of stress and strife, family drama, pressure and heartache—a potent mix of high expectations and conflicted emotions. Add in power exchange relationships, kinky gift swaps, and unconventional love in a sometimes unforgiving world, and you have a formula for a sizzling anthology of stories that tug at your heart.

From Ava March’s forbidden Regency love between men, to Katie Porter’s scorching hot contemporary tale of two women discovering holiday happiness, everyone will find a favorite here. Pervertible toys abound: Lambda Literary Award finalist L.A. Witt’s candy cane, Jane Davitt’s wrapping paper and tape, and Alexa Snow’s Christmas candles all please and delight. Newcomer Elyan Smith and fan favorite Kim Dare both celebrate New Year’s Eve with romantic flair and kinky fireworks, while bestselling author Joey W. Hill’s poignant story of discovery and commitment will lead you home

Whatever your desires, we invite you to explore new fantasies and old with these eight kinky tales of holiday happy endings.


20% of all proceeds from O Come All Ye Kinky will be donated to the Domestic Violence Project of the National Leather Association–International. (If you buy the book, digital or print, from Riptide’s website, more money goes to the charity because we’re not paying third-party vendor fees.)
