The New York Post brings us “femdom on a budget”…

If money is tight and you can’t afford a real-time dominatrix session…or a video clip…or a phone session…you can always check out the newspapers for ads that have a strong femdom undercurrent and can spur some serious and inexpensive fantasizing. Just the price of the newspaper. Case in point, these two Bloomingdale’s department store ads from the New York Post ($1 a copy Monday through Friday) during the week of June 19th 2017, promoting a line of clothing called Aqua…

The expression of bratty dissatisfaction and impatience on the model’s face makes her a perfect object of femdom daydreams. She looks like she’s about to ream us out for something or other, and she’s not going to spare our feelings until we head with our tails between our legs into our respective doghouses! ūüėČ

We’re always on the lookout for pix like this in the media and love to bring them to your attention.

You might call it “femdom on a budget!”

The Lady Godiva of the New York Post

Gotta love the New York Post. I was tucking into¬†a hardworking freelance porn writer’s humble lunch of American cheese sandwich and jalapeno potato chips when I turned to page 3 of the 7/7/16 edition, only to see this photo by Mona Kuhn for the August 2016 issue of Harper’s Bazaar:

LadyGodiva&Cheese

I guess you might say I was having the¬†“Lady Godiva and Cheese” special! But¬†I also stopped in mid-bite, as I knew I had to record this gustatory and aesthetic moment with my point-and-shoot camera. It says in the caption that the lovely centaurix¬†is Emily Ratajkowski, one of those names I’ve heard of but whose accomplishments I am unfamiliar with, as she no doubt is unfamiliar with mine. In any case, she makes a fetching¬†Lady Godiva-like figure, and reminded me that I have an old poster of the 1955 Maureen O’Hara movie Lady Godiva that I should try to¬†sell for a few bucks one of these days at the flea market.

I think it’s no coincidence¬†that the article next to the picture is entitled “Scorcher Torture,” referring to the NYC heat wave we’re experiencing, but of course I also took it¬†as a not so subliminal reference to Emily, the¬†brunette goddess who on her steed so blithely gave so many of us blueballs today. Pretty feet has Miss Emily, too, for those of us attuned to such details!

Happy New Year with a lady in boots

Happy New Year!¬†After such a nice series of four-day holiday weekends (Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year’s) it’s back to porn writing, tabloid reading, and sandwich eating.

Sandwich &DailyNews

This is something I was lingering over the other day with my Velveeta on a bagel…photos in the New York Daily News of Jada Pinkett-Smith from a layout she did in one of those get-shapely mags for gals.

I’m sure the coming week will bring more nice pix in the News and the New York Post to enliven our collective libidos!

I wish everybody a prosperous and healthy 2015.

Be sure to check out one of my femdom ebooks too and enjoy your January to the max!

And if you want something even more ambitious, give my full-length novel about a stripper and her customer a try.

Learn the FATE OF A STRIPPER!

Inside some¬†porn and erotica writers are the restless spirits of¬†scribes who aspire¬†to also prove themselves in the wider arena of words.¬†I’ve written about this on my blog before, that other genres of writing–like literary, suspense, or crime writing–offer different and exciting challenges to my imagination.

And so, with FATE OF A STRIPPER, the new non-porn mainstream novel I’ve just published on Kindle, I’ve met that challenge.¬†It’s a complex story, almost 250 pages long, that’s not simply¬†about a stripper and her customer, but about the difficulty of love and the deceptions of desire. It’s about office politics, and family relationships, and the struggle to survive¬†both financially and emotionally. I guess you might say I packed a lot into it, and it’s¬†available now at Amazon US, Amazon UK, Amazon Germany, Amazon Canada,¬†Amazon¬†France, Amazon Italy, Amazon Spain, Amazon Brazil, Amazon Japan, Amazon Mexico, Amazon India, and Amazon Australia.

 

I look thru thousands of photos until I found this one, which perfectly evokes the stripper of the title.

I looked thru thousands of photos until I found this one, which perfectly evokes the stripper of the title.

FATE OF A STRIPPER tells about¬†a middle-aged New York City guy named Vic Vanner who meets the sweet beauty of his dreams, but Valerie the stripper¬†turns out to have some quirks to her personality, to say the least. Not that Vic isn’t a bit intense¬†himself. Still, they give their all to the relationship–in their own ways–and they even start doing a¬†stage¬†act together¬†in¬†New Burlesque, the popular hip¬†scene made famous by people like Dita Von Teese and which mixes striptease with performance art.

Vic is a romantic and unsure of himself with Valerie, especially since she’s much younger than he is.¬†The situation is¬†not helped by the cynicism of his father, who casts a skeptical eye on almost everything Vic does. Furthermore, Valerie has a thuggish friend named Tino who gives her an outlet for her aggressive tendencies. The way she figures it, if people get in the way of her relationship with Vic, she’ll have Tino take care of them. Tino’s willing to do almost anything for Valerie–as long as he gets to play with her feet…

Yep, FATE OF A STRIPPER is not a porn novel, but ye ole Uncle Irv couldn’t resist making one of the characters a little kinky like the guys in¬†my femdom ebooks. It’s also set in the world of strip clubs¬†and¬†Times Square, two locations of human endeavor that I know a little something about.

Anyway, the situation builds to quite a violent climax, and if the New York Post covered it, the story of Vic and Valerie would be probably be entitled¬†something like THE STRIPPER, THE SUCKER AND THE SLAVE. At one point I even considered using that as the title of the novel; it’s¬†the headline¬†Vic nightmarishly visualizes¬†when he’s wondering what the hell is going to happen to him after Valerie goes over the deep end one dark night in downtown Brooklyn…

I’ve made no secret of my love for film noir and noir paperbacks, and so some of that has rubbed off on this novel¬†as well. I hope you’ll read it, I hope you’ll enjoy it, and please let me know with short reviews on Amazon if you take the plunge and learn the FATE OF A STRIPPER!

You can just click through to the Amazon links above and read the opening two and a half chapters absolutely free!

By the way, months after I wrote the book, I looked through thousands of stock photography images for a cover, and I’m glad I was so thorough–because the image by wisky’ at 123RF.com really captures the way I saw the character of Valerie. Click this link to see his portfolio. I hope you agree!

Eroticism in New York City tabloids!

One thing people in the erotica biz¬†traditionally enjoy is seeing how the mainstream media slip in little bits of juicy tease in the guise of reporting the news, or running advertisements. Some of us porn folk are convinced that everybody is really a smut monger at heart! ūüėČ

Case in point are these three pix that ran awhile ago in the New York Daily News, clearly and skillfully chosen for their va-va-voom appeal:

Quite a torrid trio of evocatively erotic images!

Quite a torrid trio of evocatively erotic images!

 

First we have Angela Ahrendts, a¬†highly paid executive in her stiletto boots…then cheeky pop star Rihanna showing her derriere decolletage…and then actress Olivia Munn elegantly attired with a nonetheless mesmerizing cleavage showcase…

Plenty of material here to fascinate and stimulate!

Never to be outdone, the New York Post runs its own gaggle of gorgeous pictures constantly. For example, here are two brazen advertisements they ran recently:

Take your pick: bikini babe or demure temptress!

Take your pick: bikini babe or demure temptress!

 

The ad on the left really surprised me in the boldness of its leggy show…but actually I prefer the ad on the right, which has elements of mystery that appeal to me as a writer of sexy stories. Firstly, the brunette is wearing a pretty dress, which I find intriguing because it leaves so much to my imagination;¬†and¬†secondly, she is shielding her eyes as she looks up to see–who? Friend? Foe? Lover? Creep? And thirdly, she is lightly clutching her purse, which on the obvious level can be sheer self-protection of her valuables, but on the symbolic subliminal level is the Instinctive Defense of the Feminine Fortress.

Aspiring erotica writers can especially use pictures like these from the tabloids for inspiration. Start a story simply by imagining what¬†one of these ladies is saying to you. Write it in¬†the “I” point-of-view in the first person, begin¬†it with a line of dialogue from your dreamgirl, and see where it goes!

Femdom pervades modern culture!

Being a writer of erotic fiction, with a specialty in femdom stories, I am very aware of femdommy currents in other avenues of media and culture. The other morning while eating my breakfast and reading the newspaper, I noticed this fashion ad in the New York Post:

Her expression shoots daggers!

Her expression shoots daggers!

I was struck by how mean the model’s expression looked as she posed in her duds. “What are these clothes supposed to be,” I thought, “an appropriate ensemble for ballbusting a rebellious male?”

Several weeks earlier, at the beginning of this summer which has passed oh-too-quickly, I encountered this¬†pose on the cover of the New York Post’s “Hot Issue” summer special:

It's all right to look, but all I can do is ache & put more cream cheese on my bagel.

It’s all right to look, but all I can do is ache & put more cream cheese on my bagel.

 

So I guess you might say I bumped into¬†a little “tease and denial,” a popular form of femdom roleplay, while eating my salt bagel (which I¬†like with plenty of salt).

Yes, femdom is everywhere…even when I go outside to enjoy the sunshine, or walk around near Times Square, I see women eager and ready to rule…

This ad was all over Manhattan earlier in the summer.

This ad was all over Manhattan earlier in the summer.

 

I think it’s funny how in the above ad, the coincidental placement of the leggy model’s hand against the side panel¬†of the bus makes it almost look as if she has a riding crop!

I guess you might say I have femdom on the brain…well, not all the time, because I also have to be concerned with such mundane stuff as making a living, learning to be a better writer (always), reading vintage paperbacks, and checking out pretty women on the street…

In any case, if you want to learn more about the femdom universe from the perspective of one veteran traveler of its trails, check out my Kindle ebooks!

After 3 years this remains my top seller!

How to punish your roommate after the Super Bowl!

Reading the New York Post yesterday (1/30/14), I learned about a bargain between two roommates, a guy and a girl, concerning the Super Bowl. Both roommates are bartenders; the guy works at a bar backing the Denver Broncos, the girl at a bar cheering the Seattle Seahawks.

If the Broncos win, the girl is going to have to stop serving “Seahawks blue” kamikazes and put on a Broncos orange-and-blue jersey, delivered by the guy; but if the Seahawks win, in the words of the girl quoted in the Post:

“He’ll not only clean the apartment from top to bottom, but he’ll also have to wear a feather boa to work for an entire year.”¬†

Wow, what a difference! If the Broncos lose, this guy is going to get punished with “extreme housework” and a yearlong sentence of feather boa-wearing! The Post writers, Elizabeth Hagen and Laura Italiano, describe this as a more “creative revenge”–but it reminds me of what happened in Greek mythology to Hercules in the land of Queen Omphale: he was punished by the gods for a transgression and¬†for a year was a slave to the Queen,¬†participating in what was certainly seen in those days as “women’s work,” like looming; as well as wearing the queen’s clothes¬†(feather boa time, ancient style?) while she put on his. Note his club on her shoulder, as well as his lion skin, in this painting by Bartholomew Spranger. Doesn’t Herc look a little embarrassed in her gown, holding some wool?

Crossdressed Hercules

I just find the wide contrast in the level and concepts of post-Super Bowl retribution, even if just in fun, to be fascinating and indicative of the differences between men and women.

You can read the full Post story here.
