Erotica Book Review: In the Dark for the Dark Web by Benson E Wolf (BDSM maledom)

Author: Benson E Wolf
Publication Date: March 6, 2021
Protagonist Gender: Female
Sexuality: Straight
Kink/Fetish: Maledom, BDSM

I had the great pleasure of giving In the Dark for the Dark Web an early read as it was being polished and I was stunned by how well Benson E Wolf managed to ride the dangerous edge of dubious consent erotica without ever making the story feel exploitative or wrong. Make no mistake, there's real fear and anxiety here for Lisa, but we're provided enough background and insight into her character to trust (or perhaps just hope) that she can handle it.

The BDSM aspect at the heart of the story is comprised of equal parts pain and pleasure, dread and desire, and it's where they all meet that the fun happens. I loved how Wolf set the scene, easing Lisa into it through voyeurism and masturbation, making the introduction of her partner a thing of both shock and excitement. 

What's important to remember throughout is that Lisa is a willing participant, a young woman driven by greed, who surrenders to lust. She has opportunities to walk away, but she chooses to succumb to ever darker, more deviant sexual desires. Whether you identify with Lisa or her nameless partner, this is a rather breathless kind of story that will get your pulse racing and leave you with guilty, dirty, nasty dreams.
