Last month I posted a two-part blog post about the older sub/younger Dom dynamic and I was promptly called out in comments for making it heterocentric. My examples focused on male Doms and female subs and most of the discussion did too.
Last week we talked about younger Doms and some of the questions older subs have when it comes to submitting to them. We discussed how there is a perception of what a Dom should be, that seems at odds with a younger person and how it’s mostly inaccurate.
Today we’re going to talk about why older subs feel uncomfortable about submitting to Doms who are younger than them. We’ll also talk about why we rarely see the older Sub/younger Dom dynamic represented in fiction.
This is a topic you don’t see covered often. You don’t see it on many non-fiction blogs or websites, but you also don’t see it much in fiction either. I’ve been building up to discuss it for a while, so I’m going to take my time and lay it all out for you in two parts.
Let’s start with some questions I’ve received about this subject:
If you didn’t pick up your copy of Dirty Daddies 2021 Anthology then… well, you’re out of luck. It’s gone now. However, I do have some paperback copies to give away over the course of the year so keep your eyes open if you missed your chance.
But we’ve had some great news! Even though it’s gone, it has been nominated for several awards. One is the 2021 Swoon Awards (The Swoonies) and we’re a finalist in the anthology category.
The Swoon Awards (or TheSwoonies ) is a reader-based and reader-hosted award celebrating the romance community’s favorite romance novels of the year. The award consists of 15 romance categories across different subgenres and age categories and there are three rounds.
