Fantasies... do we want them to come true?

You walk in the door and find a trail of rose petals leading to a glass of champagne... and the night of your life. 

He walks behind you and whispers, "put the cuffs on, pet, then we'll play."

You look up to find him watching you over the top of his coffee cup. You've watched him for weeks, thought about him at night while you were panting. You knew he was out of your league. He beckons you over and you figure, what the hell, why not. 

Whatever your fantasies are, sweet, loving or naughty, they play an important role in your life. Or, at least mine do. Fantasies give us an outlet for creative wanting. They are a way for your brain to put into play those things you either can't have or would never ask for. They can be born from something you've read, something you've seen, or just something you've thought about on your own. In them you are who you want to be, the men say and do exactly what you want them to do. There is no embarrassment or judgement. Most of the time they are never real enough to have them acted out, but what if they were?

My newest book is based on this very idea. Beth whispers a few of her fantasies to her husband, post-coitus, never imagining that he would try to bring them to life for her. She's appalled at first, but they find that playing out a few of their fantasies brings them closer together and spices up their marriage bed. 

So, if you could have your fantasies brought to life without repercussions, would you? Would you be able to handle living out something you've dreamed about?
