Senta Holland

An independent writer, and the author of "Out Of The Shadows And Into The Darkness". Making a guest appearance here as a CCK contributor.

Senta Holland lives and loves in the shadows, in a world of BDSM from the inside out. Her passion has to be lived in secret. If the shadows don't lift, you will never meet her and the only way to get to know Senta is through her book. Open the pages, and she will lead you deep inside her beloved darkness. But maybe you have met Senta already. Maybe you hear her soft voice in your dreams, maybe she is sitting right next to you on the Underground. And maybe you, yourself, are Senta in the shadows.

Questions we asked:


100% Arabica only


I love light, airy, complex compositions with cherries. Bitter, dark, sweet, tart, sumptuous. Red to black.

Kinks: Interests, Quirks or Peculiarities

I can’t answer that...

What attracted you to Coffee, Cake & Kink? (Why CCK?)

I heard about it on the internet and then I checked it out while it was still in Endell Street.

What were you doing before you joined us?

Writing my book ‘Out of the Shadows and into the Darkness’. I am a writer, and was one at the time... I am writing a new book right now.

What's your favourite way to wake up and what's the first thing you do?

I don’t like waking up. I prefer to dream...

What's your favourite thing to do on a Saturday night?

Wild things under a tropical moon...

What's in your wardrobe?

Beautiful vintage dresses.

What are you reading right now?

‘The Bride Stripped Bare’ by Nikki Gemmell.

What was the last thing you ate that you really shouldn't?

I’m afraid I don’t understand the question...‘Shouldn’t’ is not a concept that has much of a place in my life.

When was the last time you cried laughing and why?

I can’t remember doing that.

What is stashed under your bed/mattress?

People are still doing that?

Have you got any bad habits? :)

Not in my view. I’m not much into dividing my life into good and bad.

Your "Bucket list" : Five things you want to do in life?

  • Have a "champagne flute list" instead!
  • Write.
  • Get my voice heard.
  • Help liberate the BDSM community so that we can walk out of the shadows (I don’t think that is going to happen within my life time, though...)
  • Board a space ship and discover the rest of the galaxy.
