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:

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!

Femdom thrills over the last 200 years!

One of the things that particularly interests me is the evolution of art forms, such as how stories are told, throughout the years.

I particularly recall the fantastic paintings for the macho “sweat mags” of the 50s and 60s–periodicals like FOR MEN ONLY or MEN’S WORLD or ALL MAN, that often sadistically portrayed GIs and Nazis and gorgeous women in a pulp phantasmagoria derived from World War 2. The great site Men’s Pulp Mags is the resource for these images and info, and here is an example of a femdom cover image from 1959 that they also sell as a note card:

Doesn't look like

Doesn’t look like “pity” is her middle name…

In an interview I read at Men’s Pulp Mags, artist Mort Küntsler explained why those publications declined in popularity as “More and more advertising money was going to television rather than print, and a lot of people were getting their fiction over television rather than reading it.” (Boldface italics are mine.) The phrase “getting their fiction” stayed with me. Wisely, Künstler moved onto other venues for his considerable skills and has had great success. You can read his Men’s Pulp Mags interview here. (He didn’t do the image above, by the way, but you can see many examples of his work at the interview.)

Now, we all know that in 2015 dominatrices can express their spellbinding narratives to their admirers through websites, Twitter, video clips, and phone services like NiteFlirt; that’s how sub males are primarily “getting their [femdom] fiction” today, as well as through ebooks and hardcover works such as the British artist Sardax’s new translation and illustration of the classic VENUS IN FURS. But how did the submissive males of long ago get their entertainment thrills?

In 1937 they could enjoy the story “Tiger Cat” by David H. Keller in Weird Tales magazine:

This wild cover is by Margaret Brundage, Weird Tales' premier cover artist.

You can enjoy it today yourself if you go here. One passage in this story of a beautiful demoness who keeps men as her prisoners reminded me of some of the things you can hear dommes say online today, especially when teasing and denying their slaves the merest touch of their alluring flesh:

“She was more beautiful that night than I had ever seen her. Dressed in filmy white, her beautiful body, lovely hair, long lithe limbs would have bound any man to her through eternity. She seemed to sense that beauty, for, after giving out the first supply of rolls, she varied her program. She told her audience how she had dressed that evening for their special pleasure. She described her jewels and her costume. She almost became grandiose as she told of her beauty, and, driving in the dagger, she twisted it as she reminded them that never would they be able to see her, never touch her or kiss her hand.[Boldface italics are mine.]

I recently read an informative post on The English Mansion blog here, by the renowned British domme Mistress Sidonia von Bork, which discussed the origin of her unique-sounding nom de domme, from the leading character in a famous and huge-selling 19th century German novel SIDONIA THE SORCERESS based on the life of an historical figure. She also mentioned how H. Rider Haggard’s 1887 novel SHE, similarly imbued with femdom themes, was another gigantic seller in the late 1800s. It got me thinking about these other incarnations of the cruel female, like “Tiger Cat,” which must have thrilled the slave males of long ago.

So another thing that springs to mind is John Keats’ 1819 poem “La Belle Dame sans Merci,” (“The Beautiful Lady Without Mercy’)  which became the subject of many famous paintings like this one by Frank Cadogan Cowper in the 1920s:

The red of that dress reminds would entrance anybody...

The red of that dress would entrance anybody…

In both “Tiger Cat” and the Keats poem (which you can read here), the women have enslaved or subdued many, many men. This makes me think of the work of my colleague Sardax, who frequently portrays this classic trope of mass subjection in his art, as in his recently published image “The Stockroom”:

Before these tigresses, the blush doesn't leave men's cheeks, neither top nor bottom...

Before these tigresses, the blush doesn’t leave men’s cheeks, neither top nor bottom…

Be sure to visit Sardax’s Wordpress blog here for more information about his work and how he created his edition of Venus in Furs, his new translation of Leopold von Sacher-Masoch’s 1870 classic of femdom literature.

Of course these stories and poems are not sexually explicit the way BDSM videos or, say, audio files are today–but the femdom vibe is still there, and strong.

Although I’m not into the idea myself of being enslaved with an entire horde of other guys–I really am a one-on-one kinda sexual serf 😉 –I even ended up using this trope in my own way at the climax of my supernatural femdom story THE DOMINATRIX WHO COULDN’T DIE, available on Amazon here. Perhaps mass enslavement by a few strong females is part of the collective male subbie unconscious?

She's a tiger in her own way, trust me!

She’s a tiger in her own way, trust me!

Writing for Leg Show and illustrated by Sardax…

My friend and colleague, the great femdom artist Sardax, recently wrote a blog post about doing art for editor Dian Hanson’s Leg Show magazine back in the 1990s and early 2000s and creating some illustrations for my short stories there, among the many authors whose work he brought to visual life. You can read his post here.

I had been writing femdom fiction for other magazines like Leg Action for a few years before I started submitting stories to Leg Show, but once I began publishing in Dian’s publication, it became my favorite femdom venue. Two reasons for this are that there were fewer censorship restrictions on the subject matter–the strictness of restrictions varied from publisher to publisher–and Dian was also open to fiction that didn’t only emphasize eroticism but also the exploration of the psychological aspects of foot and leg fetishism and female dominance. Since my stories ranged from those designed mostly for stimulation to some very intense and dark tales about the ambivalence of submissive males toward their destiny to kneel before powerful women, Leg Show was a perfect showcase for my work.

One of the stories I wrote, designed primarily for arousal than for introspection, was “Enter the Governess,” about a young woman sexually in charge of a handyman at the New York City rooming house where she lives. Here you see the opening pages with Sardax’s illustration. This was in the December 1999 issue.

The young heroine teases the handyman with the encouragement of her landlady.

There were a number of other good illustrators who worked for Dian, but Sardax was always my favorite. The faces of his ladies especially reflect the teasing and often playfully cruel allure of the fictional dommes I write about…

She knows he loves to ache for her tantalizing skills!

In this detail we see she understands how much he loves to ache under her tantalizing power!

 

…and there was always a smile on my face when I got my complimentary writer’s copy of a new issue of Leg Show in the mail and saw that Sardax had illustrated my latest opus.

Check out his official website The Femdom Art of Sardax here and look for info especially about his illustrated version of Venus in Furs, which in his pictures and translation Sardax captures the atmosphere and essence of Leopold von Sacher-Masoch’s groundbreaking femdom novel. The rest of us femdom writers only stand in the shadow of Sacher-Masoch’s masterpiece, an essential read for any lover of erotica, much less any submissive male or dominant woman!

New femdom Goddess Vesper in focus!

In the last week I’ve had the pleasure of meeting via Twitter a dominant young New York City girl of Eurasian extraction who goes by the nom de domme Vesper Lynd and as @HeiressVesper for her tweets, and so far has made a couple of femdom clips for the Clips4Sale studio Deadlier than the Male. She is mesmerizing in her bestselling clip “Conniving Secretary,” which rocketed high on the Clips4Sale charts, and you can read more about it and the studio here.

What is especially interesting to me is how Miss Vesper enjoys my femdom ebooks Learning to be Cruel and Learning to be Cruel Part 2, and has said on Twitter how much she identifies with my creation Miss Meirong, the graduate student and bookstore clerk who enslaves freelance writer Lester Cronkberg in the two parts of the novella.

I have openly expressed my admiration for “Conniving Secretary” to Miss Vesper on Twitter, and these three screencaps I made show her at her beautiful best as she weaves her web around her slave in this video!

Her look of dominant skepticism quickly puts a submissive male in his place...

And in a matter of minutes, it's time for the male to kneel before her!

And in a matter of minutes, it’s time for the male to kneel before her!

 

When I told Miss Vesper (she allows me to call her “Miss,” which I like to do with dommes as a sign of respect and awe) that I had watched “Conniving Secretary” four times, she told me to watch it a fifth time and then report back which moments in the clip had struck me with particular force.

I readily did as she requested. (In the movie, she points to the floor when it’s time for the male to get down at her feet. Metaphorically, by requesting I watch the video a fifth time, Miss Vesper pointed me to the floor, and–metaphorically again–I kneeled willingly.)

It would be great to write femdom clips around Miss Vesper’s charismatic persona, as I am sure the results would be tantalizing. From 1987 through 2003 I wrote twenty-five full-length screenplays for all the top actresses and adult industry studios–Masseuse 3 with Taylor Hayes, an original script of mine with several femdom elements including forced housework and cuckolding, won the XRCO Award for Best Picture of 1998–so it would exciting to write sinema again, and this time totally with the femdom focus close to my heart and hard-on!

I’ll keep you posted…

————-

UPDATE, 3/4/15: Since the above was written, Miss Vesper has written a review of Learning to be Cruel Part 2 on Amazon, although it really discusses the impact of both parts. You can find it here.

————-

Meanwhile, I was chatting online with Lawrence, the head honcho of Deadlier than the Male studios, and we got into a discussion of classic femme fatale fiction. I’ve always believed that the noir spider ladies are the antecedents for the dommes of today. Mainstream paperback noir fiction of the 50s was a sublimated version of femdom. The women enslaved their men but they just didn’t use the overt dominant/submissive roleplaying we see in media today. Instead of having their men do naughty things in bookstores (as Meirong has Lester do in Part 2 of Learning to be Cruel), the noir gals would send their men off to ruination through crime or punishing adulterous trysts, just to use two examples.

Anyway, Lawrence asked me to tell him who some of my favorite noir authors are, especially with a femme fatale focus:

The first one I thought of was David Goodis: his book Behold This Woman is really full of femdom vibes. I haven’t read it in many years but I never forgot it for the scene where the femme fatale brutally hits some guy–I think her husband?–I’d never quite read a scene like that before. According to what I’ve read, in real life Goodis was into picking up big black ladies to verbally abuse him. And the novel was supposedly inspired by his commanding ex-wife.

This is the cover of the same paperback version I read.

This is the cover of the same paperback version I read.

 

This is the cover of the original hardcover version. What a vixen!!

If you to the site of Captain Ahab’s Rare Books you can see a personal note that Goodis gave with the book to a friend, and read more of the outrageous plotline as well as learn the price of this extremely rare edition.

Goodis’s books are so intense I can only read one every two or three years. In his novel Of Tender Sin, a female chides a male for enjoying housework! If that isn’t out of a femdom scenario, I don’t what is.

Another author I like is Charles Williams, and his novel A Touch of Death has one of the greatest final scenes of a femme fatale kissing off her chump in ANY book. Might be my favorite. Available through Hard Case Crime with a sensational cover by Chuck Pyle:

This is a rare instance of a modern cover being far better than any of the 50s originals. Google the others and see what I mean.

This is a rare instance of a modern cover being far better than any of the 50s originals. Google the others and see what I mean.

 

Another author I like is Bruno Fischer, whose work dated back to the early pulp days. His last novel The Evil Days is a very twisty book set in suburbia, maybe his best with some tricky female maneuvers.

John D. MacDonald, John McPartland, Lawrence Block, and Gil Brewer are other authors who have good noirish deadly or at least edgy and feisty females in their books.

And though not a 50s paperback writer, the Japanese novelist and short story writer Junichiro Tanizaki, in his fantastic Seven Japanese Tales, has many femme fatale femdommish motifs AND an explicitly deadly female tale called (if I recall correctly) “Tattoo,” about a nice girl who gets a spider tattoo on her back and “transitions” into her dark dominant power. Very erotic, although definitely NOT erotica–just juicy with intense insights into psychosexual issues. His classic novel Naomi, about a guy who creates his own dominatrix, in a sense, was so influential that a Japanese BDSM film actress, Naomi Tani, named herself after the title character. However, as far as I know, Naomi Tani ironically played submissive females in her movies, while the Naomi of the novel turns out to be anything BUT submissive. Tanizaki’s novels are loaded with foot fetishism, cuckold fantasies, and other kinks.

So these are a few of the authors I like, and who have helped set me on my own road of creating femmes fatale in my stories. Check ’em out, and again, take a look at the new femme fatale Vesper here.

I sure do love bad girls…on paper!

I’m a little more wary and ambivalent about bad girls in reality, though…

Anyhow, some books I’ve read recently…just thought I’d share the covers. Actually I read a modern edition of Someone Is Bleeding with a dull type-only cover, and I wish I’d read the original paperback shown below (but which I don’t have). Looking at that cover when I took a break from reading would have been fun. Fortunately, I did read all the other books in these original editions.

Farewell to a flea market…

Some of the cool items I got only recently at the Garage Flea Market on 25th Street just off Sixth Avenue in Chelsea…

A short section of this novel provided the basis for the great 1949 film noir House of Strangers.

But the flea market, which has been in this garage for twenty years, is now a memory. It closed last weekend on June 29, 2014. I’ve heard the building is going to be demolished to make way for something new.

I frequently went here for the inspiration that only vintage things can bring, as well as to meet and see friends. Some of the vendors will relocate to an outdoor flea market about a half a block away on 25th Street between Sixth Avenue and Broadway.

But the Garage, even as cold as it got in winter or as hot as it got in the summer, will be sorely missed!
