Crushing on sexy Sixties British actress Margaret Lee…

I have the late-middle-age equivalent of a schoolboy crush on pretty and perky British actress Margaret Lee. Sometimes she’s blonde, or sometimes she’s a redhead, as you see in the pic below. She starred in many a 1960s Eurospy and sword & sandal movie. I collect and watch her old films when I can find them, such as SAMSON AND THE SEA BEASTS which I found at Sinister Cinema here. I initially found out about her in a book called Film Fatales: Women in Espionage Films and Television 1962-1973, by Tim Lisanti and Louis Paul, available on Amazon here.

Here are a couple of pix from the Samson movie which I snapped of Margaret from my tv screen. She was just tossed to the floor by a villain, but you can see the feisty gleam of defiance in her eyes.

I don’t know if that was her real voice or some other actress’s dubbing, but in some films she sounds a little like Audrey Hepburn. Which is extra-sexy coming out of Margaret’s voluptuous body.

 

The legs dangling over the pit while Samson fights with a crocodile are Margaret’s. She screams at the menacing reptile with some real Fay Wray-style lung power!

Although she finds herself in a “damsel in distress” situation, Margaret is no shrinking violet in this fun flick.

I’m making some more pix of Margaret from one of her spy movies, and I’ll post those soon!


You might ask, what does a post like this have to do with a blog called EROTICA IS MY TRADE? Well, these are the types of features I used to like to concoct for the adult magazines I edited and for which I wrote for more than four decades. But since sex publications have basically disappeared in the last couple of years, and I primarily work for hardcore websites and/or Twitter doing explicit porn writing, I’m just doing stuff like this for my own pleasure, and yours, on this blog. Practicing my trade, you might say, and having fun! I hope it’s fun and entertaining for you too.

Surrender to the writer you NEED!

DON’T FIGHT IT. YOU’LL FEEL BETTER WHEN YOU ACCEPT IT. 

SURRENDER…SURRENDER…SURRENDER…

submit2thewriter

YOU NEED A GOOD WRITER TO HELP YOU WITH YOUR PROJECTS. YOU KNOW YOU DO.

You’ve been fighting it, trying to save pennies, but you keep coming back to the fact that…

You need a reliable, creative, and versatile wordsmith and you need him now.

SO MAKE YOUR LIFE EASIER…

PUT YOUR MIND AT EASE with my dependable service and inventive prose, as well as my understanding of what is effective and memorable about erotic photography and video. I was basically a creative director for porn magazines for almost thirty years, overseeing every aspect of the issues I worked on. I would still be doing that, as well as writing for the Web, if the adult magazine business hadn’t essentially disappeared because of all the free stuff on the Internet.

So here’s what you do next. Check out these samples showing you the range of the things I’ve written just in the last couple of years, right up to the present. Click on the image to enlarge it. The first two are from the DDF Network, for whom I wrote from 2010 to 2015.

Erotic short story--click this link to read it: https://filthy.media/rebound-sex-or-love

A short story in my favored style of “Erotic Realism” which mixes sex with characterization

 

You can read the above story here, at the Filthy Media site. I also wrote, in a six month contract job that just ended in November 2016, over 100,000 words (coming to 300 pages) of erotic fiction (one hundred and twenty 800-900-word stories) for a major adult site, not under my pen name but under the bylines of various anonymous people writing in “sexual confession” style. Otherwise I’d post links of that work here too.

Some of the other writing I do now is on social media. I tweet at @DommeAddiction for the femdom site DommeAddiction.com. Here are samples of my tweets, in which I mix words with emojis and photos to good effect. My tweets have helped gained thousands of new followers for this Twitter feed since I started working for them in the spring of 2016.

For a completely different change of pace for me—since previously I’d only written about femdom (females dominating males) when it comes to BDSM—I have recently written women-in-bondage copy for FetishPros.com:

fetishpros5girlcopy

And on the stands as of this writing (January 2017), in the newsstand publication FORCED WOMANHOOD issue #82, is my new in-depth interview with the legendary crossdressing expert Veronica Vera, all about the “forced feminization” fetish:

I’ve also done a lengthy interview with Miss Vera and her cross dresser academy, appearing around the same time in TRANSFORMATION #100.

 

Another article I wrote recently was a memorial/biographical piece about the late legend of erotic filmmaking Candida Royalle, who passed away in 2015. It was published in Penthouse FORUM January 2016 and is available in a digital copy here.

The article is "The Really Groovy Life of Candida Royalle," the title coming from something an old school friend of hers said.

And finally, here is the latest femdom erotica ebook I have just published, available at Amazon!

47630661 - young attractive woman applying lipstick on lips. pretty gorgeous girl sitting on vintage retro sofa couch. fashion and make up.

 

So there you have examples of some of my recent, ever-versatile work. I write vanilla and I write kink of different kinds. You can also see more about my writing if you go to my portfolio WHAT CAN I DO FOR YOU? right here on this blog. That’s where you’ll find my email address; it’s at the bottom of the portfolio. Or you can send me a direct message (DM) on Twitter @irvoneil.

Whatever your writing needs, I’m ready to help you fulfill them. YOU KNOW YOU NEED A WRITER LIKE ME. Video descriptions, short stories, tweets; or perhaps you’d like me to ghostwrite an ebook for you?

The possibilities are endless when I’m on the job, because…

EROTICA IS MY TRADE.

So hire the writer you NEED…NEED…NEED! 

 

~~And as you see, I can also write with a sense of humor! 😉

Binge on femdom fiction ebooks this holiday!

All I want for Christmas, ma’am, is…is…to bury my face in your b-b-boobies…

HAPPY HORNY HOLIDAYS!!!  😉

There is a real link for me between femdom fantasy and this particular season, as demonstrated by my ebooks such as SUBMIT IN THE SNOW and SHE MADE ME A CUCKOLD ON BLACK FRIDAY.

snowstorypublicitycover

 

 

My entire current library of Kindle ebooks—21 books, with 20 being femdom erotica and one being a full-length psychological suspense novel (FATE OF A STRIPPER)—would cost an American reader $60.79. The price would comparable in other countries. All my ebooks cost $2.99 except one (SUBMIT IN THE SNOW, which is 99¢), and are comparably priced elsewhere. A very affordable price for stories you’ll enjoy reading time and again! So if you’re a fan of erotically assertive women and idolize them as I do, binge on these ebooks and treat yourself this holiday to some of the best femdom writing anywhere.

They can be read on almost any device, including smartphones, tablets, Kindle readers, and computers!

All these women on the covers, even though they are professional models, are accurate representations of their characters in the stories. Some of my earlier books have drawings on the cover, but they too accurately represent the characters.

What you SEE is what you GET! Oh yes!!

STORIES YOU CAN READ AND ENJOY AS IF THEY’RE ACTUALLY HAPPENING TO YOU.

“What a writer should try to do is to make something which will be so written that it will become a part of the experience of those who read him.” ~~Ernest Hemingway: The Writer Observed

And to those femdom fans out there with a constant appetite for POV video clips (and who clearly have the seemingly limitless wallets to buy them and to tribute their stars huge amounts of money), I say: Supplement your erotica diet with stories! You’ll be glad you did.

Lovingly lingering memories of Eighth Avenue sleaze…

Ah, sleaze fondly remembered. To start, here is a shot I took of 46th Street and Eighth Avenue in Manhattan on Sunday morning 9/25/16, looking northwest, with the new, recently completed, and rather monolithic RIU Plaza hotel in the middle of the picture.

46thandeighthavesept2016

 

Once on the very site of that hotel stood two very interesting adult video stores, crammed to the tops of their shelves not only with standard hardcore movies but also intriguing exploitation and grindhouse flicks on VHS and DVD. Also there was the Full Moon Saloon near the corner, one of my favorite hangouts back in the 80s and early 90s.

I seemed to stop spending much time in bars after a good portion of the adult magazine business shifted over to Magna Publishing in New Jersey in 1993, to where I commuted frequently to assemble titles like CHEEKS, GIRLS OVER 40, SEX ACTS, and LEG WORLD. Formerly I did all my editing and writing in Manhattan, and life in New York felt strangely off-kilter when I had to reverse-commute to New Jersey. Even though, since I was a freelancer, I didn’t have to do it everyday like most  of my associates, nonetheless there was always something discombobulating about it.

The old building on the left side of the picture was known back in the day to some of us sleaze aficionados as the “TV Hotel,” as in “transvestite,” because many transgender women used to ply their prostitution trade there, after meeting customers at nearby clubs and bars in Times Square. This went on back in the late 70s, early 80s. Now for many years the building has been just a regular tourist hotel.

Additional factoid, but not visible in the picture: at the vantage point from which I took this photo once stood three adult movie theaters: the Capri, the Eros, and the Venus. They are long gone and the space is now occupied by respectable bars, restaurants, and an outdoor shopping mall. If you want to read the definitive book about these theaters and the area, check out the classic volume Sleazoid Express by Bill Landis and Michelle Clifford.

The moral of my musings is simple: these builders can transform the neighborhood but never erase the lingering memories of the locals. We exist in two dimensions simultaneously: the current world of a better scrubbed, more staid New York,and the landscape of its more uninhibited and colorfully tawdry past.

A lovely ancient Playboy magazine…

The magazine Playboy was a big influence on my wanting to become a writer. Just like in the cliché, “I read it for the articles,” after I got done looking at the pictures I did indeed read the articles. Mostly the fiction, but the interviews too. The many finely wrought short stories that Playboy published inspired me to learn the craft of fiction, and the interviews taught me how to talk to people to get their stories, a skill that came in handy when I interviewed about a thousand porn stars and strippers from the 1980s through the mid-2000s for mags like Black Tail and Leg Show.

I went to the flea market in Chelsea today on my unending search for inspiration in print, and I found a lovely Playboy from January 1956.

Look at the clever cover collage of the bunny-eared photog looking in his camera viewfinder!

This slender (72 pages including covers) but jam-packed issue has, among its charms, a recap of the first two dozen Playmates (including Marguerite Empey aka Diane Webber, Jayne Mansfield, and Diane Hunter (whom I interviewed decades later for Pat Reshen’s Over 40 magazine); cartoons by the legendary and tragic Jack Cole, creator of the comic book character Plastic Man and a frequent Playboy contributor, as well as fiction by Robert Bloch, Erskine Caldwell, and Herbert Gold. Probably the one name that most resonates with contemporary readers is that of Bloch, who of course was one of the great masters of horror fiction and created the original novel on which Hitchcock’s Psycho was based. And Caldwell was one of the biggest selling writers of all time with the paperback editions of his rural tales of lust and human folly.

I never cease admiring these beautiful vintage paperback covers!

Ready to cuckold him on their first date!

Happy 2016 to all my readers! A safe and healthy new year to you all!

A few days ago I blogged about one of my two newest ebooks, THE SINS OF DR. JEKYLL. Today I’d like to tell you about…

IN TRANCE FOR A TRAMP…

Wherein my submissive hero Timmy experiences an incredible night of deep and lasting degradation! (Which he can’t resist and he deeply enjoys…)

TranceTramp PublicityCover

Do you like the cover? This girl really looks like trouble, doesn’t she? I am very fond of 1950s paperback books, with their femme fatale cover girls, and this model projects that same spirit. The image, which I found at a stock photography house, was shot by “xalanx” whose portfolio you can see here. I also used one of his images for the cover of RULE BY CLEAVAGE (read about that book here).

Getting back to the noir paperback aspects, even the typeface I selected for the title is similar to what was sometimes used on the covers of the noir paperbacks, stories crammed with mean, manipulative ladies.

And my dominant heroine, Theresa Pendillac, is very mean and manipulative. She toys with shy Timmy, a fellow worker in her office, and when she finally goes on a date with him, it turns out to be only a pretext for an evening of sexual humiliation involving everything from foot worship to cuckolding to pantyhose sniffing to…well, suffice to say, Timmy realizes something about himself that he didn’t know until Theresa brings out Timmy’s deeply buried desires.

Yes, Theresa gives Timmy all the femdom thrills he craves, and then some. He should have known what to expect! The outfit the model wears on the cover is the one Theresa uses to tease her co-workers’ boners back in the office…

One reader named wylde64 enjoyed this story so much that he started riffing with me on Twitter about what could happen in a sequel. The possibilities are many. I’m not big on writing sequels (Learning to be Cruel Part 2 was the rare exception) but maybe I will consider it depending on how big a response I get to IN TRANCE FOR A TRAMP. Learning to be Cruel, for example, has been my bestselling title ever, so I did write a sequel…and you can read here about the unique way that came about.

Anyway, back to my original topic: I originally wrote IN TRANCE FOR A TRAMP in 1996-1997 and it was published in the May 1998 issue of Leg Show by editor Dian Hanson. It was graced with a beautiful illustration by the legendary artist of femdom fantasies, Sardax, which captured the almost hallucinogenic, trance-like feeling Timmy experiences when he is confronted by the luscious cruelty of Theresa:

TheTrance-Color-SardaxArt

 

You can see more of Sardax’s art here. Nowadays one of his specialties is doing commissioned portraits of dominatrices. And check out his recent illustrations for a piece of femdom fiction published by the New York-based mistress Mrs. Weltsova here. (This fascinating lady will be touring London, Paris, Berlin, and Washington D.C. this January 2016—for more information go here and look under her Travel News.)

I reprinted IN TRANCE FOR A TRAMP with only with a few minor adjustments. I kept it in the same time period, 1996, but I tweaked the names a little (Timmy is called Jimmy in the original) and I wrote an introductory scene so that I could use the new photo cover that I’d selected for the ebook. There was something about the way the model rests her hand on the front of her skirt that seemed like something the Theresa of my imagination would do, so it was a pleasure to describe her using that teasing gesture in the office where she and Timmy work.

I also altered the original title from the blander “The Trance” (okay for a magazine, but not for the Internet) because I felt it needed more strength to compete in the ebook market. To do this I emphasized the femme fatal-ish qualities of Theresa as a “tramp” right out of noir fiction, up to no good with ruthless vixenish ways paired with a remorseless voracious vagina.

IN TRANCE FOR A TRAMP is available at Amazon US and at the Amazon stores worldwide, ready to read on your Kindles, phones, and tablets.

I hope you’ll make a firm “resolution” to check it out as you begin a most Happy New Year!

Dr. Jekyll and his foot fetish sins!

After publishing three brand-new femdom novellas from late September into November—DARVA CHAN: CRUELTY QUEEN OF THE PIANO; RULE BY CLEAVAGE; and HIS URGE TO SERVE— I decided to reprint in ebooks a couple of my favorite magazine stories from the Leg Show and Leg Action days. How I miss writing for those magazines, it was a constant flow of fun assignments and I was given a free hand to create the stories that were itching to get out of my fetishistic brain… 😉

Today I want to call your attention to the first of these new reprints, THE SINS OF DR. JEKYLL.

JEKYLLSinsPublicityCover

When it was published in the late 90s in Leg Action, this short story was titled “Jekyll and Thigh” by the editor; a clever title, yes, but I felt a little too cute for the tone of the tale. My original choice was “The Lusts of Dr. Jekyll.” After re-reading and tweaking the manuscript a little for this reprinting, I think THE SINS OF DR. JEKYLL is the most accurate.

My yarn tells what I imagined as the “backstory” of how the good doctor is driven by sexual guilt to his disastrous discovery of the power to unleash the evil in people. He has a foot fetish, and a taste for streetwalkers in the seamy slums of Victorian London; and his inability to accept such “sin” leads him to the follies for which he would one day become world-famous through Robert Louis Stevenson’s immortal novella and the zillions of films and tv shows it has inspired.

So give it a try, it’s sinful yes but saucy and sexy in the way of those fun old 50s and 60s Hammer horror films with their bosomy wenches in corsets and lingerie being eyed by lusty townsmen and vampires alike!

You can find THE SINS OF DR. JEKYLL on Amazon US here and Amazon stores worldwide.
