I’ve previously discussed how difficult it can be to find an accurate representation of BDSM in pop culture. Unfortunately, the most mainstream thing we in the kink community have to “represent” us is Fifty Shades of Grey.  I don’t think I have to clarify why that’s terrible.  So, when mainstream things aren’t an accurate depiction of our sex lives (or lives in general) we turn to the alternatives. I’m sure we’ve all found a few pieces of fanfic or literotica that we know is a pretty damn good representation and read them over and over when the mood strikes. My go-to is Stjepan Seijic’s Sunstone webcomic.

I have been meaning to write about Sunstone since I began writing for The Rainbow Hub simply because it is an absolute must-read for anyone interested in the BDSM lifestyle. There are many sexualities featured in the comic, but the main relationship is between two women, an adorably awkward Domme with a penchant for screaming at video games and an enthusiastic sub who is all too eager to write down any and every story she can. Not only does Seijic do a good job of writing a believable and accurate representation of these women, Ally and Lisa, as their relationship develops, in and outside of a BDSM context, but the art is also amazing.

The comic began back in 2011, but it is now being printed. Funnily enough, the release date is on an all too (in)appropriate date, Christmas Eve, but it is available for preorder now. When the release date draws nearer, I will do a full review of the story to this point, but if you’re too curious and can’t wait, you can find the first of four completed chapters here. I encourage you to purchase the comic though, even if you go and read the whole thing today because Seijic deserves every penny you can spare to spend on his work with Sunstone.

MYKA IS A LESBIAN DOMME IN HER 20’S LIVING WITH HER GIRLFRIEND WHO FORTUNATELY ALSO SERVES AS HER SUB. THEY LIVE IN OHIO AND DISCUSS ANYTHING FROM RELIGION TO RECIPES WHILE MYKA PLANS THEIR NEXT SCENE. THOUGH SEX IS OBVIOUSLY A TOPIC OF CHOICE, MYKA WILL HAPPILY TALK ABOUT ANYTHING. IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS FOR HER OR WOULD LIKE FOR HER TO ADDRESS A CERTAIN ISSUE, YOU CAN EMAIL HER AT MYKA.KENT@GMAIL.COM, FOLLOW HER ON TWITTER @MYKAKENT,  OR THERE’S ALWAYS THE TUMBLR SHE RUNS WITH HER SUB – PROSERPINE.TUMBLR.COM.
