a dare & a poll

gratuitous cookie butt

Besides showing that not only do many of your numeracy skills suck but your tastes in a certain character are total poo, my m/m meme threw up – not in a regurgitated kind of a way cos… yuck – a number of interesting comments.

One of these was made by the loverly Kassa, who practically double dog dared me to do a poll about it. (I’m like Marty McFly with the chicken thing when it comes to dares.)

Anyways, this is what Kassa said in response to that question. (You know the one that I mean.):

“Readers love a flawed, fallen hero even more than they love a rimming scene.”



Do you truly-ruly love a flawed hero more than rimming?

Cos I gotta tell you that I think Kassa may be underestimating how pervy some of you really are.

Reads, rants, randoms & R+s. You've been warned. BTW, don't follow me if you're a GLBTQQphobic wanker. It won't end well. For you.

  1. huh? cookie butt…




  2. Can I vote for a fallen hero getting a rim job?



  3. Val says:

    Wow, that's quite a cookie!

    I have to admit that I may be the only m/m reader on the face of the planet who is a little bit squeamish about the concept of rimming, but I will say I find anti-heroes to be highly interesting!

  4. wren says:

    I love a flawed, fallen hero very muchly. As long as he gets up.

    There's only so much you can do with the rimming. There's lots of things you can do with a flfa hero.

  5. K. Z. Snow says:

    KB stole the cookie and EJM stole my line!

    Then there's a flawed hero giving a flawless rimming. They're good that way. πŸ˜‰

    Another confession: I'm not overly fond of wholesome, uncomplicated men. Not in fiction, anyway. The human psyche fascinates me too much.

  6. “Murohehhshf” S'rry, mouthy full.

  7. Ingrid says:

    It seems like writers feel that a book is not complete without one rimming scene these days *sigh*

    Yummie cookie as always.

  8. Tracy says:

    I'll take the flawed hero over the rimming.

    And my what a nice ass you have there. πŸ™‚

  9. Tam says:

    Ummm. I think I like rimming better. I'll let the rest of you have the flfa hero. They are okay but not a fave, but that butt could become a fave very soon. πŸ˜€

  10. nichem says:

    Flawed hero definitely. Though I like MsM's suggestion of the flawed, fallen hero getting a rim job. Wonder if Josh included that in The Dark Tide? *ponders*

    Thanks muchly for the lovely cookie butt. πŸ™‚

    BTW, did you read the sneak peek of The Dark Tide? If so, are you feeling sorry for Jake yet? πŸ˜›

  11. Ingrid says:

    Nich, I told Kris about it too. I do not know what she thinks of it yet.
    Poor Jake.

    Great idea btw for the next book.

  12. Jenre says:


    What was the question again?

  13. Kris says:

    Katiebabs chook: One track mind. *pets butt* For good reason though. πŸ™‚

    MsM: I guess that would work. LOL.

    Val: *dreamily* Yes. Yes, it is.

    Did you not see Jenre's post about this, Val?? My contribution was “Rimming assumption #4: Looks and smells like a rosebud and tastes like strawberries.” It works for me. *g*

    Wren: Okay, I thought you'd written alfalfa hero and I'm all like WTF is Wren on about now.

    I'm with you about a flawed hero having to get up. (*rolls eyes* Yeah, yeah.) Give me a hero that keeps failing to redeem himself over and over again and that's when I get pissed off.

    Hang on a sec. That's ringing some bells.

  14. Chris says:

    I'm going with the “fallen hero getting a rim job” – maybe JL can work that out for Jake in the next Adrien English book. ;p

    Damn, that butt. *grabs*

  15. Kris says:

    KZ: I'm surrounded by cookie thieves and smart arses. *sigh*

    “Another confession: I'm not overly fond of wholesome, uncomplicated men.”

    I think you might have already given yourself away on this one, hun. LOL.

    Ingrid: Yeah. Rimming is the new fisting.

    Tracy: I take it you're not commenting on my arse, but his. πŸ˜‰

  16. Kris says:

    Dearest Tam. I'm totally shocked by your preference. πŸ˜‰

    Welcome Richelle! You could always ask Josh and see what he says. LOL.

    R & I: I know it's there, but I'd rather just wait and read it in what hit. I definitely know I'll be getting it after all. πŸ™‚

    Jen: You're almost as bad as the Redheaded Cali Butt Lady when it comes to pert arses, Jen.

    Chris: *snort* Pervs the lot of you.

    I wonder if Kassa is gonna be surprised by these responses.
    Probably not.

  17. Jenre says:

    You're almost as bad as the Redheaded Cali Butt Lady when it comes to pert arses, Jen.

    And your point?
    I don't see anything wrong with being fond of a nice arse.

  18. Kris says:

    Fond? Hun, please. Can you even remember what the post was about, Jen??

  19. Natasha says:

    That is one seriously tight arse you have there Kris πŸ˜‰ I wish I could say my arse was that firm once….. but I'd be lying…. my only consolation is what my husbands tells me… with a smile of course.
    “The bigger the cushion, the better the pushin' “

    Raised By WOlves SPOILERS… sort off…. not really actually…
    Oh I read Sloans meme and Wynette Hoffmans books are great but very very long. 600 to 700 pages but it is very descriptive and she sets every scene very well… must admit some is just a bit tooooo long. The RBW is more about Will and his journey through life… he is gay but hasn't had much of a happy life (insert crying here) but when he makes it to the west indies life picks up. Book 2 is my favourite… in order they are Brethren, Matelots and Treasure… the last book we've been waiting for, for about 18 months (Wolves) and doesn't seem to ready for release and there is no news on when it will be. I've given up holding my breath LOL! Also blue really isn't my colour πŸ™‚ But I love them… they are my comfort books…. also try Murder at Willow Slough by Josh Thomas – no sex- but the best and grossest mystery on the planet. It's my DIR πŸ™‚

  20. Natasha says:

    Speaking of DIR… that might be a good blog for you πŸ™‚ *mumblesnotbeingsubtle* So we can find new stuff to read etc etc πŸ™‚

  21. Kris says:

    *snort* I so like your hubby, Tish.

    Thanks for the info re: WAH's books. Still intrigued so I definitely need to check it out further.

    Okay, so I'm gonna need a sledge hammer because I have absolutely no fucking idea what DIR means. Although I did try to google it and came up with my fave definition which is 'Differentiated Reliability'.

    I'm think of using that as my blog slogan. For eg: “For differentiated reliability you can't go past Kris 'n' Good Books.'

    It's got a certain something, hasn't it.

  22. Natasha says:

    DIR = desert island read…. the books you'd take with you if stranded :)….. I'd take 5 books and my kindle… and the husband so he could find a way of rigging something up to charge the kindle LOL!

  23. Kris says:

    *head desk* Course it is. *need more morning coffee*

    Have you ever been to this site http://dikladiesrule.blogspot.com/, Tish. A whole bunch of us have some of our fave books and heroes already on an island.

  24. Tam says:

    You find alfalfa heroes down on the farm. Yee haw, let's have a hoe down. Or in some cases “OMG, there's a ho down, call an ambulance”.

    Hmmm. It would seem I have risen to a level of pervyness above all others here. I think I'll have a drink and celebrate. I should get some kind of prize.

  25. Kris says:

    Ba boom. What the hell is a hoe down anyway? Is it like sword dancing but with hoes??

    Tam, your prize is knowing that you are The Kris 'n' Good Books Perve. Congratulations. You should be absolutely thrilled about going that extra smutty step.

  26. Kris says:

    Or pork swording with hos even.

    Ba Boom.

  27. Chris says:

    Y'know, I'm pretty sure Tam needs a blog button for her award…

  28. Kassa says:


    *is totally justified*

    oh and fabulous cookie.. *tilts head*

  29. Kris says:

    Chris: I'm an artiste. I can't just create something on demand.

    Kassa: Sweetie, I'm not sure if the majority of peeps saying they want a flawed hero rimming or being rimmed is conclusive either way.

    This also doesn't count those who got distracted by cookie butt.

    Actually I think the latter proves my point about the level of pervyness.

  30. Rimming *BLECK* Unless it smells and tastes like roses or chocolate or money.

  31. Kris, who would get throw up in her mouth if asked says:

    The kitteh loves her manlove smut.

  32. Kris says:

    *gasp* Katiebabs chook, are you saying that you would rim for $$? I'm shocked!

  33. I am also a money slut. Pay me a few million and I would put my tongue in places not fit for man, woman or dog.

  34. Kris says:

    A few million, hey?? Yeah right. You're such a slut. *rolls eyes*

  35. JenB says:

    Meh and…meh.

    Although the flawed hero is slightly less boring.

    Love and kisses,
    Cynical Jen

  36. Kris says:

    The hell, Jen?? Not too long ago you were sapily raving about the falling for the BF of a sibling thing and now you're all cynical and stuffs.

    Do you have schizofiction?

  37. Melissa says:

    This comment has been removed by the author.

  38. Melissa says:

    You know I have one of those weird mindsets that when I hear a guy say something “tastes like sh*t” I ponder if they ever did a rim job…gotta go with the fallen hero:)

  39. Kris says:

    ROFL!!! Melissa, the next time you should so ask. That would be fucking funny. Just make sure you report back so we can all enjoy the response.

  40. Melissa says:

    sure! But I would have to be somewhere I knew I wouldn't get shot, I live in the backwoods of Texas!

  41. Kassa says:

    Jen is all about the bisexual mens now.

    I think the poll is inherently flawed by the distraction of such an ass.

  42. Chris says:

    Poll? What poll? *grabs ass again*

  43. Kris says:

    Melissa: Good point, although that could make it all the more funner in terms of the response. *hehehe*

    Kassa: She is?? When did this happen?

    You're not implying that I deliberately skewed the results are you? Cos that would have to make me pretty damned evil.

    Chris: You're such a graby arse.

  44. JenB says:

    I've always liked bisexual men. Gay men, straight men, bisexual men…straight girls, lesbians, bisexual girls…m/m, m/f, m/m/f, m/f/m, f/f, f/f/m, f/m/f…shall I go on? LOL

    And I do like a good rimming scene, but it should be short. Because licking someone's ass for 30 minutes (without penetration or direct genital stimulation) is only slightly more likely to get them off than licking their belly button for 30 minutes. Kind of like a man stabbing his fingers into a woman's vagina over and over without ever touching the clit.


    Oh, and I think Chris just grabbed your ass.

  45. Lily says:

    OMG, what a delicious cookie, thanks Kris!!!

    My vote goes to a flawed fallen hero getting and/or receiving a rimming. I like both and couldn't decide which I like better. πŸ˜€

  46. Chris says:

    Did not! That was SOOOOO Jen.

  47. Cookie butt's delish. Oh, ew. Sorry, took a sleeping pill. My inner editor is asleep.

    Um…I'm not answering your poll cuz I'm not. Still, nummy picture. *sigh*

  48. Kris says:

    Jen, you're an equal opportunity perve. Like that's news. I was getting all excited that you're on some new sex thing. How disappointing.

    Chris has a thing for my arse. Tis true.

    Lily, you're very welcome. I think you're with the majority with your view. LOL.

    Chris, yeah, yeah. You can't resist my arse. Admit it.

    Bridget: I'm so getting you some m/m to read, Bridget. I promise to start you off slowly and build you up to rimming. πŸ˜‰

  49. Tam says:

    Bridget has never read m/m? Huh? Someone help the woman. She needs to be initiated into the rites. We could start here with a YA maybe. My daughter read Vintage: A Ghost Story by Steve Berman. No rimming. πŸ˜‰
