Elizabeth Taylor and The Cleavage of Cleopatra…

Elizabeth Taylor’s epic starring vehicle Cleopatra came out in June 1963, but I didn’t see it until 1964, for a fifty cent ticket on its third run in a small theater on the North Side of Chicago. I was almost thirteen years old. I remember thinking the movie was pretty good, even though people had said negative things about it. And I remember saying at the time that fifty cents was really a good price to pay for a four hour trip into the ancient world!

I hadn’t seen the whole film again since, so when Turner Classic Movies ran it the other night I gave it a watch from start to finish. I enjoyed it, although I didn’t think it was a great film. But its mix of politics, romance and spectacle was absorbing.

But what most struck me now was how it was quite a showcase for Taylor’s cleavage.

The admiring fellow is, of course, Richard Burton as Mark Antony.

I wonder now how that cleavage affected me back in 1964. Cleavage displayed like this was not something that I saw much of growing up in the sexually conservative Jewish middle class neighborhood of West Rogers Park. So the constant focus on boobie vistas in Cleopatra may well have blown my mind at that tender, impressionable age. As it also did in June 2019 when I watched the film again from beginning to end.

As Cleopatra gives Caesar daring political advice, Mark Antony (out of frame) falls for her hard.

Now I can’t help but think that Cleopatra may have had something to do with my utter fascination with cleavage in recent years, a fascination which really didn’t start until I was in my late forties/early fifties after I got an amazing lapdance from a stripper with two utterly beautiful large natural breasts. Until then, I think a fetish for cleavage existed “underground” in my subconscious, and I’m not sure of the reason(s) why. Perhaps the ubiquity of cleavage in the media and on the street nowadays is what brought it back to the surface for me, big time.

Cleopatra in her regal finery, cleavage dazzlingly displayed!

 

In any case, I therefore conclude that perhaps my long-ago viewing of Cleopatra on that fifty cent ticket (plus a dime for buttered popcorn) had something to do with my writing of femdom erotica ebooks like this one…available on Amazon here…try the free sample just by clicking…

One of my best femdom ebooks. Yolanda is charmingly merciless with her “boob for boobies,” the haplessly cleavage-addled Orwell Jarvis.

 

…and the imprinting of Cleopatra’s CleavageScope (oh, that’s just my silly invented word!) probably had something or other to do with my ever-burgeoning admiration for the gorgeous and b-b-busty Goddess Lycia, about whom you can learn m-m-more here. And I want to emphasize that her talents are by no means limited to her sharing tantalizing glimpses of her, um, her c-c-cleavage, but are but one aspect of her entrancing hypnodomme erotic powers as conveyed through her skillful writings, striking images, intoxicating videos, and especially her mind-enrapturing audio files. For adults only, of course.

Goddess Lycia is a true Mistress of the Selfie as well as of men’s minds.

 

Back in the early 2000s, there was a magazine entitled Cleavage put out by one of the publishers I worked for. It never seemed to hit big, perhaps because the magazine showed full bare breasts, instead of obsessively concentrating on the tease of cleavage alone. Although it probably wouldn’t have been practical on the marketplace to do an adult magazine without showing some bare tits and nipples, I would have photo-edited it very, very carefully to emphasize tease over exposure and nudity. And given the way I feel about cleavage, it might have been a success like the other fetish magazines I did for many years: the ass-crammed Cheeks (1988-2005), the toe-and-sole utopia of Leg World (2004-2010), and the mature ladies sexual paradise of Girls Over 40 (1988-2008).

Vincent Price and his Laughing Woman…

I am always fascinated to find instances of femdom and femmes fatale in the past…from the obvious examples of stories like those of Jezebel or Judith in the Bible, to the exploits of 19th century Wanda in Venus in Furs by Leopold von Sacher-Masoch, and onto other lesser known items…

I recently saw the not-very-good 1963 Vincent Price movie Diary of a Madman, based on stories by Guy de Maupassant.  Despite Price giving his usual good performance…

…the film is a kind of graceless affair; but it features lovely Nancy Kovack as the irresistible femme fatale who seduces poor upstanding Vincent (he plays a righteous judge) and I must confess I primarily watched the movie to see her (although I like Price, I’m not a huge fan).

Kovack of course is a fanboy favorite for her role as Medea in Ray Harryhausen’s Jason and the Argonauts. But here she is below in my lovingly snapped screencap from Diary of a Madman (I sit in front of my tv with my cellphone, lol):

Price is also an amateur sculptor in the story, and in one scene, as he models Nancy in clay, he tells her how she reminds him of a piece by the German Romantic poet Heinrich Heine (1797-1856). This of course sent me scurrying to Google. Price remembers the title as “The Laughing Woman” but in the translations I found, the German title is given as “Ein Weib” which is then translated into English either as “A Woman” or, at the site lyricstranslate.com,  “A Broad.”

A Broad

They loved each other with love so deep
She was a tramp and he was a thief
While he was plying his naughty craft
She just lay on the bed and laughed

The days went by in pleasure and joy
At night in the sheets she hugged her boy
When they dragged him off to jail at last
She just stood at the window and laughed

He wrote to her saying: ‘O come to me
I long for you, so badly, you see
I’m weeping: I’m fading fast
She shook her sweet head and laughed

At six in the morning they hung him high
At seven they buried him under the sky
But as eight o’clock went past
She drank red wine and laughed

Heartless, right?

In the original German the rhythm works better at the end, has more of a grim punch, so if you can read Deutsch, go to this page where I found the translation and check it out. Here is also another translation that works well, but likewise the final stanza just doesn’t have the same aural oomph of the German. I’m no expert in German, though I studied it in high school and college, but I do read poetry aloud a lot, and I can tell where a rhythm needs more force.

As it turns out in Diary of a Madman, Price’s laughing woman turns into both his tormentor and victim, the typical trajectory for very naughty ladies in such fictions.

For more of Heine’s femme fatalistic poetry, check out also the translation of “Ich glaub nicht an den Himmel” (“I don’t believe in Heaven”) here. The poem’s narrator believes in nothing but her eyes and…well, read it and see. The translator A.S. Kline also did the one I reproduced above, although he didn’t call it “A Broad.”

Finally, this post is dedicated to Goddess Lycia. A brief discussion I had with her the other day on Twitter about German and French and poetry finally got me off my butt to write and post after thinking about it for several weeks. 😉 Check out her site and journal at LipstickDomme too, as she is a most fascinating femme fatale herself…

 

 


I found the shot of Vincent Price here at the Doc Horror blog.

And if you’d like to read the classic novel of femdom translated from German and illustrated by the amazing British artist Sardax, his edition of Venus in Furs is readily available in a Kindle ebook here.

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! 😮

“The Online Dominatrix”—A poem inspired by Goddess Lycia

Goddess Lycia is an online and phone dominatrix with an amazing voice, arresting eyes, silky blonde hair, richly painted fingernails and toenails, bountiful c-c-cleavage, and startlingly sensual lips. That is only an inventory of her physical qualities. Oh dear, she is a charismatic personality who has fascinated me and filled me with, shall we say, heightened feelings, for quite some time…

lyciaportrait1

I printed out one of her self-portraits from her Twitter feed @GoddessLycia and to shoot the image above I put her photo on a stack of books overlooking my desk…

Besides her specialty of “lipstick fetish” domination and teasing which I find extremely arousing, I also enjoy her psychological acuity and understanding of the sexually submissive male mind, really impressive (and sometimes even scary!) knowledge which comes through strongly in the eroticism of her hypnotic videos and audios. But…sigh!…I don’t want to write too long an analysis and sound like a pretentious guilty twit justifying the fact that Goddess Lycia makes him horny! Suffice to say that she turns me on, but she also gets me thinking about some of the reasons why she turns me on. Which is the subject of the poem below, which I completed shortly after midnight on this Valentine’s Day 2017. It is very much designed to be read aloud. I hope you find it interesting.

You can see Goddess Lycia’s site here and her “lipstick domme” site (with, ohmigosh, such luscious pictures!) here.

Happy Valentine’s Day, Ma’am. 😉

Feeling pleasantly teased by the tongue of January Jones…

I had a pleasant and relaxing Thanksgiving weekend–kind of “mini-vacation”–saw relatives in New Jersey on Turkey Day, and then hung out in NYC and kicked back Friday through Sunday. Saw friends, visited flea markets looking for vintage men’s magazines, took long walks, shot some photos on the streets (a pastime of mine). And caught up on a couple of movies which I’d missed in the theaters–Valkyrie starring Tom Cruise, about the plot to assassinate Hitler in July 1944 (a pretty good film, interesting to see how the whole unsuccessful plot had played out); and Unknown with Liam Neeson, Diane Kruger, and January Jones. I really recommend Unknown–saw it on HBO–it was an extremely visceral, exciting Hitchcock-style thriller. Liam Neeson was excellent as the man whose identity has been taken away from him, and January Jones was perfect as the skeptical blonde with a kind of bruised edge to her haughty personality–a type which she plays to perfection in Mad Men, and is definitely an alluring character for the big screen too.

The deep cleavage was also appreciated by ye ole Uncle Irv...

Miss Jones's characters often look as if they can't believe what the hell somebody is doing.

Best of all, January Jones has a kind of sensuality not unlike Grace Kelly’s, to whom she has been compared. When it suddenly bursts out, it’s luscious to behold:

I wonder why she was doing this with her tongue. But does it matter? She did it!

Looking at that last photo, I almost feel I’m being personally teased by Miss January…a pleasant sensation! Her lipstick reminds me also of a dominatrix I’ve read about online who has a sort of specialty in lipstick teasing–Goddess Lycia here.

Besides watching a couple of movies, I did a lot of postings on Twitter to promote my new ebook, SHE MADE A CUCKOLD ON BLACK FRIDAY. The kind folks at Domme Dose, where I write a regular column, put in a item in which I wrote about it, and between my tweets and Domme Dose and the retweets of my tweets by kind folks like The Asian Goddess, and WR and Footboidon over at the Dose, the book is off to a nice start.

Anyway, my other books also sold nicely over this “shopping weekend,” and I hope it continues so I’ll have a little extra money for holiday cheer and gifts. You can find out about all my books at my Amazon author’s page here.

My books are perfect digital stocking stuffers for kinky Kindle lovers! So indulge yourself on…what do they call it now? “Cyber-Monday”! In any case, have a good start to your week.

Chinese-American stripper teases her obedient slave!

Chinese-American grad student enslaves middle-aged admirer!

Leggy temp worker instructs employer in foot worship!

Five complete short stories featuring five delectably dominant females!

———-

The top cleavage shot of January I found here; the closeup with the skeptical expression here; and the dazzling tongue shot here.
