The wonderfully erotic face of Deborah Kerr in Black Narcissus

At least there are some certainties left in this world. For me, one is the timeless eternal beauty of the face of the late Deborah Kerr in Black Narcissus, which is on tonight 6/14/17 at 10 p.m. EST on Turner Classic Movies. I took this screen shot from the trailer. If you haven’t seen this movie, I highly recommend it. A wondrous mix of the spiritual, the erotic, and the dramatic.

Whether in this film, or The Hucksters, or From Here to Eternity, I find her one of the sexiest women in movies. Oh yes!

Times Square lipstick and fingernail fetish billboard!

June 2017: Giant stern ladies in Times Square stare down at us mere mortals in all their lipstick fetish and talon-nailed glory! I love it!

Click on the picture for the full effect. This is an ad for a show on TNT.

Now, the only thing better would be something like this on a billboard!!

Goddess Lycia (visit her sites here and here) is one of the most fascinating online dommes and a real favorite of mine. She creates some brilliant and truly addictive audio and video erotica. And yes indeed, the lipstick and fingernail fetishes are two of her prime specialties…among her other virtuoso capabilities to entrance & befuddle the susceptible male mind! 😮

Vanessa Williams in playfully stern auntie mode…

I snapped this pic in the subway the other day…

To me she’s saying, “Naughty, naughty. I caught you doing bad things & now I’m going to chastise you.” Okey-dokey, ma’am! 😉

 

It’s an advertisement for a new program about the battling female co-hosts of a daytime talk show. But what I like is how Vanessa Williams looks like she’s in a playfully stern auntie mode, wagging her forefinger at us like the ladies do in those British femdom videos, ladies who are so good at reproving naughty boys before putting them over their laps for a little bare bottom spankie-wankie… 😮

Somehow the seedy background of the subway wall seems to work with this. I could have snapped the advertisement on the street, but this is more interesting to me.

I’m sorry, Miss Vanessa, I promise never to do it again…whatever it was that I did! 😉

I met a giant ballerina in Rockefeller Center…

Late May 2017. I went to run an errand at Rockefeller Center, a place which has been a part of my life one way or the other since I first came to live in NYC in 1971, and when I turned the corner I saw a giant ballerina…

I had heard it was the artist Jeff Koons’ latest, an inflatable nylon sculpture, but nonetheless I approached cautiously…giantesses have inhabited my imagination for decades, after all, being a lover of so many things “femdom”…

She seemed like a sympathetic giantess, so I came closer…

I could almost swear her eyes swiveled to study me as she looked down…perhaps to give me an order, to send me on some bizarre submissive errand… (click to enlarge and maybe you’ll feel that too…?)

But no, all she wanted me to do was promise to be a good boy. Well, I swore I would, as I went along my way! 😉

Looking forward to Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman!

Nice big billboards a few blocks uptown from Times Square. Click on the pic to see it larger.

I just hope the movie is good cheesy fun, and not pretentious noisy baloney like I find many superhero movies to be!

I don’t see many films in theaters anymore, preferring cable or DVDs (and VHS too on occasion) but I think I might actually plunk down some drachmas for Wonder Woman! That Gal Gadot looks like quite a gal…

You know how the old saying goes: “Whaddaya go see the show for? The DAMES!”

Yep, that’s me, old-school Uncle Irv…bring on dames whether they’re wearing stockings or wielding swords, it’s all good!

Femdom seduction during the American Revolution!

Eighteenth century ladies have always been icons of erotica to me.

Self-portrait of 18th century artist Marie-Gabrielle Capet

My parents took me to see the blockbuster historical comedy Tom Jones when I was twelve in ’63 or ’64. That might’ve started this fetish for me, I guess! But it’s not a major fetish, I want to emphasize; just pleasant daydreams of decorous ladies or feisty wenches in frilly finery…

I had an adolescent yen for the movie’s “bad girl” Diane Cilento and “nice girl” Susannah York

 

Or maybe when I was eight years old I saw some foxy doxy on an episode of The Swamp Fox, the 1959 Disney tv series starring the pre-comedic Leslie Nielsen as the Revolutionary War Hero Francis Marion. I remember I had a 45 rpm yellow vinyl record of the theme song which is here on YouTube, a ditty which I just heard for the first time in maybe 58 years while writing this post! 😉

Way back before The Naked Gun series, Leslie Nielsen was a standard leading man type

 

Currently I’m in a state of “withdrawal” from a fantastic novel I picked up around Christmas that took three months to read. It was Eagle in the Sky by F. Van Wyck Mason, a story of the last year of the American Revolution from the viewpoint of three young doctors. Reading this skillfully written historical fiction was like taking a trip into 1780-1781. It was 500 pages long of small type, and I read slowly both to savor the story and to study the writer’s techniques and take notes. When I was done the other night, I really felt a pang of withdrawal, like: “You mean, there’s no more?”

The aged dust jacket is a bit tattered, but I kind of liked that…had a certain charm like that of beautiful ruins…

 

Among the many entertaining, informative, and enlightening aspects of the book, besides its depiction of 18th century medical methods, sea and land battles, morals and etiquette, clothing, and living quarters, were the romantic entanglements of its characters. And to my delight, one of the doctors gets entangled with a femme fatale wealthy young widow named Emma who is clearly out to entrance him and nab him for her own:

She totally manipulates Lucius into doing exactly what she wants, against his usual survival instincts which are the result of his  rough, low-born upbringing.

Now, finding femdom images and writing on the Internet or especially Twitter these days is of course commonplace, but finding the same kind of “hypnodomme” concepts in the context of a novel published in 1948 about the War of Independence is especially pleasurable! Did you note in the excerpt above how she entrances him with her eyes? And the vivid description of her hair, lips, and clothing is quite sensual.

Mason is unjustly forgotten today, but he had an amazing life and the three novels of his I’ve read were all exciting combinations of history, romance, and action. His characters tended to be stereotypes in the central casting mold (for example, when I read Eagle in the Sky I imagined young versions of Randolph Scott, Henry Fonda, and Zachary Scott as the three male protagonists) but nonetheless Mason’s people come vividly and intimately to life through their passions and adventures. Here are his two other books I read:

Both were set in the ancient world, and the sexy Tom Dunn covers well portray what’s actually inside the stories

 

When I was reading Eagle in the Sky I kept picturing who might play the female characters in a film of the 1940s. And Linda Darnell, a superb cinema temptress in that era, would have been perfect as Emma. Here she is in the 17th century drama Forever Amber.

One of the greatest femmes fatale of Hollywood’s Golden Age.

In my own writing, I’ve only done a handful of historical stories, one being my ebook The Sins of Dr. Jekyll (available here on Amazon), but it’s something I’d like to do again, so that’s why I read these books carefully to pick up tips from a master about how to evoke bygone eras. And when I read F. Van Wyck Mason I feel like I’m in a different century. He puts you in the scene but doesn’t explain all the historical references about the physical world or the culture–which makes a reader feel either like a contemporary of the characters, one who is assumed to understand all the details of life in those days; or like a time traveler gazing in mute wonder at how things were so different in the past…not necessarily understanding all the references and customs, but happy to observe and go along for the ride.

So do check out F. Van Wyck Mason’s books if you enjoy historical fiction!

I will have to admit my version of Victorian London owes more to Hammer Films than any in-depth historical research! 😉

All hail Chelo Alonso on her 84th birthday!

April 10, 2017 is the 84th birthday of Chelo Alonso, the great star of sword-and-sandal movies, films also nicknamed “peplum” for the material used in the costumes of these Euro historical epics. Happy Birthday, Chelo!!

These are a few screencaps I made from a trailer for one of her starring vehicles, La Reine des Barbares, known as The Huns in English. Regrettably, I’ve never actually been able to see this film, but the preview makes it look pretty damn good!

You can see the full trailer on You Tube here. And if you look to the right of the trailer, you’ll find lots of clips of Chelo, especially doing the seductive dances in films like Sign of the Gladiator and Goliath and the Barbarians, for which she was famous. People would actually applaud her in movie theaters at the conclusion of her dances! There are even full Chelo movies you can watch on You Tube; I recommend Son of Samson, Atlas in the Land of Cyclops, and Terror of the Red Mask.

 

About ten years ago I wrote an article for the adult magazine SWANK about Chelo and French actress Mylene Demongeot and their peplum films. At that time there was very little stuff to be found on the Web about Chelo, but happily in the intervening years much more has popped up, including lots of video footage. If you want to read my article, entitled When Women Were the Special Effects, it’s here in my portfolio; just scroll down and you’ll find it.

 

Gosh…can you imagine being on the receiving end of a smouldering stare like this from the great Chelo Alonso??? 😉
