The Subs Club by J.A. Rock


A year ago, my best friend Hal died at the hands of an incompetent “dom.” So I started the Subs Club, a private blog where submissives can review doms and call out the douche bags.

A perfect example of the kind of arrogant asshole I mean? The Disciplinarian. He has a pornstache. He loves meat, stoicism, America, and real discipline. And he thinks subs exist to serve him.

But... not everything about him is awful. His Davy Crockett act just seems like a cover for his fear of intimacy, and part of me wants to show him it’s okay to get close to people. And, I mean, sue me, but I have fantasized about real discipline. Not role-play, but like, Dave, you’re gonna be thirty in four years and you still work in a mall; get your ass in gear or I’ll spank it.

Not that I’d ever trust anyone with that kind of control.

I’m gonna redefine “battle of wills” for the Disciplinarian. Or I’m gonna bone him. It’s hard to say.

—Dave

I've had something of a love affair with m/m BDSM stories in 2016. I've read some wonderful stories and many have had warm, loving vibes of the strong, rich dom helping and rescuing the poor, young sub. So it was a surprise when I started The Subs Club and I found myself repeatedly laughing out loud over the antics and thoughts of opinionated, bratty sub David.

David, with the help of his mates, starts up a website called The Subs Club following the death of their friend Hal during a scene in a club. David's idea is to allow subs to rate and review doms, and have discussions on how to play safely. Anyone who has even been online can see this isn't going to go as well as David thinks it is.

While all this is going on, David takes an interest in a dom known as The Disciplinarian. The relationship between The Disciplinarian and David is a rocky one. The story is told entirely from David's point of view and I loved seeing the difference between the way David behaves, what he says he wants, and what he actually wants. We see the relationship and trust slowly grow between dom and sub, and what happens when things aren't going so well.

I was fascinated by the relationship between our dom and sub because they are so different. The story left me wanting much more of them and I was disappointed when it ended. I found The Subs Club thoroughly engaging and I plan on reading the rest of the series over the next month.
