Ok, now that I got your attention, I’d like to wholeheartedly recommend the comic Sunstone. That’s because the first volume of Sunstone is currently in the Humble Comics Bundle for the very reasonable price of “pay whatever you want” (seriously you could get it for $0.01 if you are broke), so it’s a great opportunity to check out the series.

What is Sunstone? It’s the beautifully-written, beautifully drawn story of bisexual ladies who fall in love as dom and sub.

Why is it special? Because it’s a series that manages to find the perfect balance between porn & cheesecake, sugary sweet romance & serious drama, and a realistic portrayal of BDSM that puts the focus on consent, communication, safety (seriously, they make a huge deal about the importance of checking the safety measures very very carefully while hiding them to create the illusion of danger) and aftercare.

Obviously it’s full of porn (well, I guess “erotica” is the more appropriate term), but you are just as likely to find the characters debating geeky topics (one of the protagonist writes fanfiction, the other is a gamer) and having funny chats.

Personally, I’m not into BDSM, but I still found the series extremely interesting in a “ohhhhhh, so that’s how it works!” way. Add in likeable characters, funny dialogue and a plot that actually seems to be going somewhere, and I was sold. Highly recommended :D
