This month we pick up where we left off in our interview with Sean Geist erotica author from Part 1. Sean Geist is an erotica author in the hotwife / cuckold genre, and the author of many books, including his recent release, Cuckold’s Gift.
We were discussing “The Things We Do for Lust,” a 3-book series which came out in 2014. In this erotic hotwife story, there seems to be a deep-seated curiosity in Peter to see how bad his wife will actually be, which seems to be a recurring theme in a lot of hotwife stories. What are your thoughts on these types of story lines? Obviously you’ve written some, and readers love them. Do you think these types of Vegas adventures happen in real life?
Whether they’d admit it or not, I think all men would love to watch their wife interact with another man, or woman, without them knowing they were being watched. Any man who has so much control of their wife or girlfriend that they can’t so much as talk to someone of the opposite gender is a monster. I’m not saying they’d always like what they see. Maybe they just want to know their wife is desirable to other men, and want to watch her cut them down. That doesn’t always happen. It doesn’t happen in hotwife/cuckold stories, otherwise there is no story. No one wants to read, man sees wife flirt with another man, husband files for divorce.
Do these type of stories happen in real life? In Vegas? Maybe. The idea for TTWDFL came to me when I saw a couple at a roulette wheel when another man walked up and started talking to them. Maybe they were all friends, maybe not. I like to think there are plenty of people in this world, looking for adventure and willing to try anything. So, yeah, I think it does happen, but maybe not as often or as easily as in the stories you read.
There’s definitely a cuckold quality to Peter right from the start. Again, no “normal” husband would let his wife run off with a strange man, unless he’s into some sort of open arrangement. Was this your intent from the start, and was it fun writing his character, or difficult?
When I started out, I wanted to write about a couple that evolved into a triad, one woman in love with two men. And that’s pretty much how things worked out. I didn’t have plans for it to become three books, but the characters didn’t act the way I originally intended. Peter did have submissive qualities at first, but I think through the three books he developed a backbone. A ‘normal’ husband would have said something to his wife after the day at the pool. There were lots of hints that something was going on. Peter didn’t. I can’t say it was fun to write Peter. He didn’t always make the right decisions. I had the most fun writing Kelly Cho. She embodies my philosophy on sex, even if she acts in ways I never could.
On the flip side, Robin’s new love interest, Scott, is a great alpha male. Charming, rich, but like-able even for Peter, though he’s loathe to admit it. I’ve seen a lot of these types of men appear in erotica, and they are truly staples of the cuckold world. Have you experienced men like them in real life, and can you share how you created this character of Scott?
I’ve met a few men who had some of Scott’s better qualities. They were confident, bold, and highly skilled in certain areas. Scott also has bad qualities. Like he’s overbearing, thoughtless, and tries to steal another man’s wife. Although, again, it’s the woman’s choice. I liked writing Scott because he could do all the bad things I never wanted to do. Villains are the best to write and to play as an actor. Villains are fun in fiction, but not in real life. I don’t think I’ve ever met a real life Scott. As far has how I created the character, in any situation, I thought of what I would do, then had Scott do the opposite. Scott’s a dick, and I never tried to sugar coat him.
This series goes on for two more books, along with a new epilogue that you released in conjunction with a new deluxe version last year that you said you didn’t plan on writing. Did you find readers were happy again to pick up the story? Was it hard to get back into these characters?
I loved writing that epilogue. It was pure sex. Three adults having fun. Then, Robin had to go and fall in love again. But that’s who she is. Robin is polyamorous. Peter has learned to live with it, and enjoy it. By the end of the epilogue I had a whole plot to at least one more book laid out. How the three form a bond and the trials they go through. So many things that could happen, plus Scott. I gotta write this now.
Moving to another of your books, Shift Change, you paint a picture of two couples with what some might say are quite unusual arrangements. With one couple, the husband allows his wife to have multiple lovers, while another, Stan bends to the wishes of his dominatrix wife, Veronica. Naturally, this is erotica, but do you think there are arrangements like this in real life? Have you based any of your characters off of such people?
Shift Change was an exploration of the old adage that opposites attract. I’m not sure what sparked the idea, but I love what I came up with. Four people with wildly different personalities. I think I wanted to write a different kind of interracial story. I also wanted to write a story of a woman who had a husband she loved, but who also needed something he couldn’t give.
Tayna was the first character of the four I came up with. Her husband is great in bed, but sometimes she wants to have ‘rough’ sex and he can’t do that. She meets Stan, who is dominated by his wife at home but sometimes wants to be treated like a king himself. So they have this symbiotic relationship that runs smoothly, until it doesn’t. I’ve dated dominate women in my past – distant past. The sex was good, but not much else. I can’t say I based the characters in Shift Change on anyone in particular. I will say, I was pretty proud of the seduction of Stan’s wife by Tayna’s husband. That’s what’s sometimes glossed over in hotwife stories, the dialogue that drive a wife into another man’s bed.
Was it hard to keep the story lines straight in Shift Change, given you are dealing with four separate people, all with their own desires?
I didn’t find it too hard to keep the story lines in Shift Change straight. For some reason, it just came naturally to me. I’ve been working on a follow up to another story of mine, Sherry Tells Stories, that has a confusing plot line. In that book, Sherry tells her husband four sexual fantasies, then at the end admits one is true. We don’t find out which one it is though. For the follow up, if I ever write it, I want to write an inception style story, where each fantasy is true in a different timeline. I’ve got the plot laid out in a spiderweb of connections. I started it a couple years ago, and the last time I looked at what I’d written I couldn’t make heads or tails of it. It’s written longhand and my handwriting sucks. One day I’ll try to decipher it.
Of all your titles so far, which has been your favorite to write?
So, now you want me to tell you which of my children is my favorite. That’s just mean. Pictures at Ten. All of my stories have a little bit of my life experience in them, places I’ve lived, things I’ve done, jobs I’ve had. I spent a few years in the television news biz and I think that’s why I liked writing a story about a news writer who spends his life trying to get his wife to fool around with another man, only to be shocked and aroused when she actually does.
I liked writing the first book in the TTWDFL series, but by the time it came to writing book three, it was such a big seller and I knew lots of people were waiting to see what happened that I felt a ton of pressure to come up with something good. I’m proud of how it came out, but I can’t say that writing book three was ‘fun’.
Who are some of your favorite hotwife or cuckold authors right now?
There are a ton of great authors out there writing great hotwife/cuckold stories. This is not an inclusive list of my favorites. First off, Kenny Wright. He’s the first author I stumbled on and I’m glad I did. I don’t know how I found it, but the first story of his I read was All In. It’s great. Just Watch Me is the one that got me hooked on him. I still read it every time we go to Hawaii. Max Sebastian is another good one. His Madeleine series is a Masterpiece in erotic tease. And there are so many subtleties in that third book, that I don’t think even he understands just how cutting the actions of his title character were. That’s a book I’d love to talk about some day. Arnica Butler is really good, so is Kirsten McCurran. And if you like an epic angsty story, Cherry Blossoms by KT Morrison is a must read. I’ve left off a lot of really good authors, but naming them all could take a while.
What are you working on next?
I’ve got a short story I just finished up and I’m currently editing. It’s a little different, not really a hotwife story, but it does include the return of a character from the first story I published. I’m not sure what I’ll work on next. I mentioned the followup to Sherry Tells Stories. I’ve also started a romance story that may not have lots of hot erotic action. And there’s the further adventures of Peter and Robin that have been tumbling around my brain. Not sure what I’m going to settle on, yet.
Anything glad you’d like to share with your readers?
If there’s one thing I’d like to say to readers, any readers, not just of my work, it’s this, if you like what you read, please leave a review. We greatly appreciate it. And thank you again for giving me the opportunity to ramble on about my writing process. And it can’t be said enough, any sex between consenting adults is good sex.
