Prism Book Alliance® would like to thank Lynn Kelling for stopping by today.
Title: Loving the Master
Author: Lynn Kelling
Publisher: Forbidden Fiction
Billionaire Dominant David Davenport needs a break from the loveless isolation imposed by wealth, responsibility, and the stress of running the Manse, his private gay club. While at lunch with an old friend, David finds himself enchanted by the charming and submissive nature of Shea Whittier, their young waiter. David offers to help the young man out with his personal troubles, never suspecting the danger he’s putting them both in. (M/M)
A Glimpse Behind the Scenes at Manse: David Interviews Shea & Thierry
David: Hi everyone. I’m David Davenport, here with Shea and Thierry. As the owner of Manse, I felt conducting this interview with two people who attend it most frequently could provide some insight, if you’re considering stopping by. One thing you should know starting out is that Shea and Thierry are both submissives, and they’ve been trained to address me appropriately as Master as a sign of respect, though that isn’t a requirement at the moment. Not everyone who visits Manse is a Dominant or submissive, though we are pleased to host have a thriving BDSM community. I’ll also disclose that I have a personal relationship with both Shea and Thierry, though that shouldn’t factor in much here today. Shea and Thierry, thank you for being here.
Thierry: My pleasure, Master.
Shea: Absolutely! I do feel like I have a good outsider’s point of view on the place. Thierry’s been around longer than I have and doesn’t have as many rules or security to deal with, so I think it’s safe to say he’s the official insider. It’s a good balance. Sorry, I talk a lot.
David: It is a benefit when conducting an interview to have chatty subjects. Thierry, for those who are unfamiliar, how would you describe Manse?
Thierry: A private gay club on a fairly sprawling residential property. You need an invitation to get in. You can’t just show up. But it’s pretty easy to find someone who knows about it to figure out how to get an invite. There are BDSM events held there, but most of the people who go to the club are pretty vanilla.
David: And Shea, what kinds of things are there to do at the club?
Shea: Well, there’s the usual, I guess. Dancing, music, a fully stocked bar, plenty of cozy spaces to go hang out in and have conversations. I’m personally a fan of the cozy spaces. They’re a lot less intimidating than vast open warehouse type places where you can’t hear anything people are saying. At Manse you can either be in the super loud dance room, or go somewhere more low key. Oh, and there are plenty of hot waiters in sexy black masks walking around to check on everyone, seeing if anyone needs anything. If you meet someone and things get heated, there’s a second floor with small rooms set up for guests to get freaky, but there’s no doors up there for security reasons and because voyeurism is kind of encouraged, which you’re told going in. The BDSM stuff happens on the level below the club.
David: Thierry, what do you enjoy most about Manse?
Thierry: Hmm… I’d say… the people. Where we are geographically – it’s not exactly the queer hub of Pennsylvania – so to see the place packed full most nights with so many guys who have travelled all over to be here… it’s just really great. It becomes like your family, you know? Away from here, not all of us have a ton of support in our lives from family and friends, so to know we can come here and feel welcome is pretty great.
Shea: Good answer, dude.
Thierry: Thanks man.
Shea: I don’t know if I can top that. Let’s just go with his answer.
David: I’m still interested in your take, Shea. Please.
Shea: Well, maybe I should say that I found out about Manse in not the usual way. I mean, it’s not like I just came here to hang out with my friends on a whim one Saturday night. Now that I’m here all the time… I don’t know. It was something I never thought I’d get used to. I never knew there were this many gay guys in the whole world. It’s kind of like a gay theme park, only with less in-your-face marketing, line-waiting, and garish decorations, and more high-end design, tons of hardwood – haha, no really – and half-naked, super-horny guys ready to get all up in your business, if that’s what you’re into. I’m pretty sure they’d leave you alone if you said, “no thanks”. Not that a lot of people do, because have you seen these guys? They’re pretty hot. It’s actually ridiculous. I just didn’t want to imply that you’d have all of these gays like coming at you in swarms. Or would it be a flock? A herd?
David: Sweetheart, I’m not sure you ever answered the question.
Shea: Ha! You said you weren’t going to call me that in the interview, but you just can’t help yourself, can you? It’s adorable. Anyway. Yes! Answers. I would say… I’m sorry, Thierry looks bored. Is that my fault? I’m sorry man. I’ll rein it in. I swear.
Thierry: No, it’s totally okay.
Shea: Okay cool.
Shea: Yeah, I know. So, I’d say that my favorite part of Manse would be the gaggle of gays.
Shea: It really works, doesn’t it? But yeah, so I guess my answer is the same as Thierry’s. There’s other good stuff, though. Security’s kind of insanely effective. There’s always good DJs playing. I’m sure the drinks are awesome, but I’m underage, so I won’t find out for a few more years. And I personally love the general policy of, “No, it’s totally fine if you want to go screw someone in the corner while everyone watches if that’s what you’re into.” They don’t even always make it to the corner. Sometimes it’s just right on the coffee table, in the middle of everything, nuts and butts, just going at it. That’s kind of great, as far as entertainment goes. Big selling point.
Thierry: Yeah, the nuts and butts are the second biggest thing I enjoy.
David: I have to say, as someone well acquainted with both of you, I think it’s mature of you elevate the camaraderie over the sex.
Shea: Yeah, I’m proud of us too, because the sex is really fantastic.
Thierry: Oh, yeah, totally. You came so hard last night. I could tell from all the way across the room.
Shea: That reminds me; I wanted to ask how your wrists are doing today. You were hanging by those chains for a while.
Thierry: The bruises aren’t that bad, actually. See? But my ass is still really sore.
Shea: Well, duh. I have seen your Master’s dick.
David: Thierry, Shea – I hate to break this up, but I think this wraps the interview. Thank you for your insight.
Shea: Oh, we’re happy to help, right man?
Thierry: Yeah, for sure. Everyone should come by, say hi. We’ll be there.
