Erotic phantoms of NYC’s Eighth Avenue…

One thing that fascinates me is what existed in certain spaces before what is there now. I always remember the previous tenants, especially if they have some erotic or sleazy context… ūüėČ

For example, the northeast stretch of Eighth Avenue between 45th and 46th Streets:

This used to have three notorious porn theaters: the Capri (where the parking lot is now on the left); and the gay-themed Eros and the hetero-themed Venus. I can’t help but see in my mind the facades of those vanished edifices superimposed over the hordes of tourists who now stroll by and patronize the restaurants and bar and open-air market that now inhabit those urban footprints.

A block up to 47th and Eighth, across the street on the northwest side, is a marquee for what is now a sightseeing business:

Previously in the 1980s this space housed the Hollywood Twin Cinemas, but even before that in the 1970s the mezzanine was utilized for part of a massage parlor. Back in the 70s (not now!!) the entrance way on the left (painted red now) led to an elevator that took you up to the mezzanine and the girls who were sitting there. But BEFORE that mezzanine was used, and even before the theater showed porn films, not the mainstream Hollywood fare that came in the 80s, the massage parlor was just a street-level storefront on the left where the glass windows of the Duane Reade drugstore now are in 2017.

The very space where those donuts now lay placidly in their display case was, around 1975, the entrance alcove of the massage parlor, where I met one blonde girl named Lydia with whom I first acted out femdom roleplay fantasies (foot and butt worship) and visited several times; and another blonde named Goldie who, on one particularly cold winter night, gave my lonely bones a friendly hug and rubdown, and warm interesting conversation in which she told me she was a descendant of an early American president! I re-created some of that dialogue in the first porn film I wrote, 1987’s Adultery.

This stretch of street was immortalized in the poster for the 1976 film Taxi Driver. Recognize that marquee?

Finally, across the street, where there now stands a Starbucks, a Staples, a medical clinic, a preschool, and apartments, there used to be low-rise buildings that had a fantastically sleazy porn shop, a used comic book shop, an infamous gay bar called the Haymarket, and perhaps most important for the history of pornography, in the center of the block at 776 Eighth Avenue there were located offices of fetish digest publishers back in the 1950s, which showcased the work of such legendary artists such as Gene Bilbrew. I don’t remember the titles offhand right now, but I remember seeing the address on the copyright pages of some vintage issues. If and when I stumble on them again, I’ll amend this post and add the titles. This is the block now…

Look closely, though, and perhaps you’ll be able to imagine, as I do, infamous 50s femdom fetish models like Tana Louise walking down the street in sexy 50s couture and maybe going up the long-vanished steps to editorial offices at 776 Eighth Avenue!

By the way, Tana Louise (as opposed to the actress Tina Louise, an entirely different performer) was one of the very first fetish models I personally ever saw in a magazine. In today’s over-saturated kink environment, it may seem incredible that she really blew me away with her witchy dominant aura, but back in the early 70s I don’t think I’d ever come across anybody quite like her, and I think I noticed her before I even saw Bettie Page, who never looked quite as ferocious to me in any case. I got this image from the cool site Java’s Bachelor Pad, so go here to see and read more about Mistress Tana too.

The Awesome Allure of AstroDomina

I came across this the other day on Twitter and couldn’t resist ordering the video:

Believe me, friends, it took willpower not to email her with an instant declaration of my submission!

Believe me, friends, it took willpower not to email her with an instant declaration of my submission!

 

“Wanna be my slave?” asks the popular AstroDomina in her tweet. “Sure!” says my libido, wagging its submissive tail. She’s so gorgeous and breezily¬†dominant in the way I find most attractive. Also,¬†I’m always so struck by¬†how she would be perfect casting in the role¬†of the dominatrix in a video version of¬†my LEARNING TO BE CRUEL ebook series on Kindle and available at Amazon worldwide.¬†The shopgirl who originally inspired the domme¬†looked much the same physically, and the character of Miss Meirong, as I first wrote her¬†back in early June 2011, has the same type¬†of intelligently¬†kinky¬†playfulness, spiced with luscious evil, that AstroDomina exhibits online and in her videos.

The first appearance of Miss Meirong: she forces her admirer to eat a hamburger like a dog.

In this sequel, Miss Meirong has her slave do gross things with his unruly member while in a bookstore!

In “Slave Training: Dinner Is Served,”¬†AstroDomina decides to feed her lucky slave. At first she is alone on her throne in the dungeon, dressed in latex and boots, as she chews and then spits a banana, gummy bears, and a Pop Tart¬†into the slave’s “Man” bowl, and then drenches the mixture with chocolate syrup.

She has the blindfolded, gagged slave brought in to kneel before her. After the blindfold and panty-and-duct tape gag are removed, she scoops out some of the gross concoction and feeds him a little bit of it like a patient but condescending mommy.

Then she upturns the bowl and, after binding his arms behind him, has the helpless but awestruck slave eat his gunky meal off the floor while she keeps his face pressed down with the sole of her boot.

Although in real life the idea of feasting off a floor is my notion of a most repellent repast, in a femdom clip it is very exciting to see this gorgeous Asian mistress express such domineering cruelty with a pitch-perfect TONE of roleplay virtuosity. In these screencaps I made, observe the play of emotions on her face. Emotions create the tone.

Indeed,¬†tone has a lot to do with the success of clips–the wrong word, a too-harsh inflection, and a femdom clip can¬†go from a thrilling kinky game between men and women into the realm of emotional massacre. Instead, AstroDomina skillfully moves through a range of moods as she deals with her slave. And¬†there are touches of humor too¬†where the basic absurdity of the situation inevitably amuses both mistress and slave. AstroDomina looks like a lot of fun to do a scene with.

The video is straightforward with masterful visual shorthand. For example, because the slave is older, paunchy, and utterly ordinary looking, with a soft belly and butt, we instantly are meant to understand that his place in the natural erotic hierarchy would be BELOW such an alluring creature as AstroDomina. We don’t need any long backstory or dialogue to comprehend¬†this.

In a short story, of course, it might be interesting to read what lead this gentleman to his current state of submission!

After his “meal” he is left, naturally, with the duty of cleaning up any¬†residue from the dungeon floor, as well as washing the dish, while¬†AstroDomina haughtily strides out.

If you’d like to contemplate for yourself more of AstroDomina’s¬†scenarios, check her out on Twitter @AstroDomina or at her Clips4Sale store, and be lead into her cosmos of domination¬†as¬†I have been through this “Slave Training: Dinner Is Served.”¬†If you can, tell her Irv O. Neil sent you. But be aware that¬†the normal state of¬†daily life¬†can feel awfully dull after exposure to AstroDomina!!

So let’s see now…what clip will¬†I¬†order next?
