Mastering Your Impulses with Sara Brookes


One of the most awesome things about writing futuristic and sci-fi is getting to use my imagination to create the most unique gadgets. For my contemporary series, I have to keep things grounded for the most part. Sure I can expand on technology that already exists, beef it up a bit (because this is fiction, after all), but since it’s a contemporary setting, I usually stay within a set of “reality” rules. However, when I venture into the world of SFF, anything is possible!

Most of the “gadgets” on my fictional planet of Sypricon are sexual in nature. They are biometric sex toys, if you will, that sync with the wearer to heighten their sexual experience. Collars, floggers, whips, chains, ropes, etc you name it and it contains the “impulse” technology. We’re not lucky enough to have anything like that here on our planet, but that hasn’t stopped some people from coming up with some really far out there items to enhance their sex life.

Selene Orosova has come to Sypricon for one reason–distraction. And she is convinced the exclusive BDSM club, Tawse, is the place to escape the haunting nightmare of being a Planetary Marshal. She just wants to get in and get off. And she’s never met a Dom she couldn’t walk away from.

Until she meets this Sypricon Master…

Vaughn is immediately captivated by Selene. There is a wildness about her that he yearns to tame. But he knows he’ll have to break through her walls in order to get her on her knees. Determined, Vaughn pushes every limit she has with an authority no one else has been willing to give her. She’ll just need the courage to accept his command…and his love.

Warning: Contains a Dom willing to go the distance with a lesson in pleasure using technology-infused nipple clamps, collars, cuffs and floggers.
Playing with toys never felt so satisfying.


Sara Brookes is an award-winning author who has always been fascinated by the strange, the unusual, the twisted and the lost (tortured heroes are her personal favorite).

  1. The most outrageous toy i’ve ever seen is this one-

  2. Fun post, Sara! As to your prompt, you had me stretch my brain a bit to think of something that’s definitely not available but also would be great if it did exist. The gadget I’m thinking of somehow taps into both (all?) partners brains and allows each person to feel what’s happening for another. I’m sure it’d be sensation overload a bit, but lets pretend the technology keeps the negative away and just allows for the pleasurable. I just know whenever I’ve read scenes where people can feel the pleasure of the other, it sounds amazing, so connected.
