The wonderfully erotic face of Deborah Kerr in Black Narcissus

At least there are some certainties left in this world. For me, one is the timeless eternal beauty of the face of the late Deborah Kerr in Black Narcissus, which is on tonight 6/14/17 at 10 p.m. EST on Turner Classic Movies. I took this screen shot from the trailer. If you haven’t seen this movie, I highly recommend it. A wondrous mix of the spiritual, the erotic, and the dramatic.

Whether in this film, or The Hucksters, or From Here to Eternity, I find her one of the sexiest women in movies. Oh yes!

Luscious vixen Gene Tierney at her teasing peak of perfection!

It has been a very stressful week and I found myself saying, “I must get away from the computer for a few hours.” I’d finished my work and I thought I would go see the movie Gangster Squad, which opened today in NYC and which I’ve been looking forward to; but when I walked down to 42nd Street it wasn’t playing where the papers said it was supposed to be. I ended up going to McDonalds instead and having what I call my “film noir” lunch–two hamburgers without ketchup, and a cup of coffee. As I ate, I made notes for a review I’m going to post here shortly about Dr. Brandy Engler’s book The Men On My Couch, which I mentioned in my last entry of 2012 (see “Sexology on Sunday” below). It’s a very interesting and rewarding book, but I didn’t take any notes while I read it; I just wanted to experience and absorb it without thinking about what I would write later. I usually (although not always) make notations in a volume as I read, but I decided instead I would instead go back and mark it up later as I thumbed through it again to write my review.

Meanwhile, I was just thinking about how mainstream art often carries a message of femdom fantasy below its “respectable” surfaces. I was musing on this while commenting at Femdomartists.com on a picture of the Biblical heroine Judith with the head of the Assyrian general Holofernes, whom she beheaded. You can see the picture and my comment here.

The other night I watched an early Gene Tierney movie, Belle Starr, where she played a highly romanticized and glamorized version of the infamous Old West outlaw. There was a scene where outlaw Randolph Scott “teaches” Belle to shoot. The imagery was pure female supremacy, as the beautiful Tierney (who in no way resembled the actual Belle Starr) gets to say things like, as she’s shooting at a leaf– “You want me to put a hole in it? Or do you want me to cut it off?” I wouldn’t be surprised if the femdom aficionados of 1941 returned to the theaters several times to see this sequence as fuel for masturbation fantasies. Here are a few screen caps:

Gene's utter nubile lusciousness is thinly disguised pornography...

Gene’s utter nubile lusciousness is thinly disguised pornography…

When Gene takes aim at a leaf, it's a thrilling erotic moment to rival Jennifer Lawrence drawing back on her bow and arrow in The Hunger Games...

When Gene takes aim at a leaf, it’s a thrilling erotic moment to rival Jennifer Lawrence drawing back on her bow and arrow in The Hunger Games…

"You want me to put a hole in it?"

“You want me to put a hole in it?”

"...or should I cut it off?"

“…or should I cut it off?”

 

Goodbye, leaf!

Goodbye, leaf!

To say that Gene Tierney is luscious in this movie is a shameless understatement. Using a Southern accent that was apparently way over-the-top, and entrancing Randolph Scott and Dana Andrews with all the wiles of the Civil War-era steel magnolia plantation belle stereotype, her performance can be understood in 2012 as a masterpiece of eroticism. Rarely seen, not on DVD, the movie was recently shown on TCM; but if you can get past its racial cliches about the post-Civil War era, you will find Miss Tierney at her most enticing, perhaps even more so than she was in Laura or Leave Her to Heaven.

I know I’m overusing the word “luscious”…but I can’t help it! 😉

Porn scribe’s diary, 7/13/12: Angie Dickinson’s expressive face, leggy beauty…

In terms of views for my blog, today was the second best day I’ve had so far. I got a huge number of views from the United Kingdom, the most ever by far from there; followed by the United States, Germany, Italy, Mexico, Switzerland, Austria, Spain, Romania, Canada, Panama, Australia, Poland, New Zealand, France, Japan, Zimbabwe, and Greece. I just love that the blog is looked at all over the planet. I’d love to know your thoughts, so please don’t hesitate to leave a comment, which can be done anonymously if you wish.

As usual, I’ve been writing my weekly assignments for porn websites and newsletters, as well as short stories for magazines and a column for Domme Dose, a site devoted to the financial domination fetish. I was thinking about that stripper I visited last week at a club, too, and hope to see her again soon. She wasn’t working today–I called the clubs where she works to check if she was on the schedule.

Tonight I watched an interesting 1961 Warner Brothers melodrama on Turner Classic Movies called A Fever in the Blood that had Angie Dickinson in a good role. She’s always been one of my faves. Here are a couple of pictures of her I found at a cool site called Dazzling Divas here.

She could give anybody a leg and foot fetish! But what I’ve always loved about her especially is her expressive face, always forthright with emotion whether fierce or compassionate.

The actor Robert Colbert was also excellent in A Fever in the Blood. He had a small but pivotal role as a murderer on the loose who sets the story in motion, and he brought a sad lonely quality to the harsh character that made him really stand out. The set design in the movie, which showed him in his dank little rented room decorated with 1920s style girlie photographs, was also striking. Truly, there are no small parts for actors who know how to make the most of their material, and Colbert was memorable in this film.

Well, I better hit the hay now. Was typing up a piece of erotica tonight to either post here on the blog, or as a new Kindle ebook. It’s been a few months since I posted my last ebook, MOMMY’S LITTLE DUNCE (available here), and I want to get some more of my sexy fiction out there for you to read in handy digital form.

Have a good weekend, and thanks as always for visiting my blog!

Femdom thrills in mainstream movies!

Over the years there have been a number of erotic mainstream movies touching on femdom–look up “Sadism and Masochism in Fiction” on Wikipedia for a long list. I admit that I have not seen them all, but in my opinion the greatest film of this type I have seen is Moonlight Whispers from 1999.

Called Sasayaki in Japanese (full title Gekko no sasayaki), it was based on a manga and told the story of two students, boyfriend and girlfriend. Problem is, the boyfriend is submissive and this greatly disturbs the girlfriend when she finds out. She didn’t know he was a hentai (pervert)!

I haven’t seen the movie in awhile, although when it was in the theaters I was so blown away that I went to see it twice on consecutive nights at New York’s Cinema Village, a tiny theater that was a perfect venue for an elegant but truly dirty movie (although softcore all the way). Then I saw it on VHS and DVD two or three times in succeeding years.

There are several clips on You Tube. In one, labeled Moonlight Whispers, at

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6RZHqwQ4HnA

the girlfriend punishes the boyfriend by making him hide in a closet while she has sex with her boyfriend’s best friend. This clip shows the before and after, but doesn’t have the actual sex scene (which, again, was softcore and perfectly fine for being so…maybe even hotter for being so).

Re the clip I’ve linked to above, I’ve never seen a sequence in any other movie that captures so well the complicated feelings that femdom, especially the cuckolding scenario, can inspire in a male submissive…and also shows how the female can awaken to domineering feelings and latent sadism when she is disappointed in discovering that her man is not “normal.” Look at how she kicks him in the clip, calls him “hentai” and then plants her beautiful foot firmly upon his chest!

(On the same page where this clip can be found, there are other short Japanese clips ranging from commercials to blatant femdom eroticism. Check them out!)

In another clip on You Tube labeled Moonlight Whispers 2, at

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kPUjMQDnqao&feature=relmfu

the girlfriend tells her boyfriend (whose wrists and ankles are bound) to clean her up after lovemaking with the other guy! “I’m sweaty.” Again, it’s done with a fair amount of subtlety, but is still incredibly hot.

That bottom shot of the DVD box is from that sequence.

It looks as if you can see this entire movie on You Tube under its original title Gekko no sasayaki, broken up into several parts. It really is worth owning, though, and definitely worth seeing: a rewarding film in many ways, capturing a whole spectrum of femdom scenarios as well as the emotions that go with them.

I also saw a 1961 movie on TCM (Turner Classic Movies) recently called Claudelle Inglish, which is about a poor Southern girl, daughter of sharecroppers, who takes revenge on the fiance who dumped her by becoming the town tramp.

The story is largely concerned with all her new suitors giving her presents–a constant stream of presents, in fact, about which she boasts just as constantly.

This reminds me of today’s thriving online “financial domination” scene, where men give “tributes” “presents” and “gifts” to dominatrixes, many of whom only interact with them online. (Although I’m not into financial domination–or “findom”–myself, I write a general column about femdom for a site that specializes in findom–Domme Dose, which you can find here. You can specifically find my columns, entitled “Notes of a Rebel Subbie,” here. Adults only.)

But back to Claudelle Inglish. Young actress Diane McBain was fantastic in this role. She starts out sweet when she’s engaged to her dreamboat (a very young Chad Everett)–but once he abandons her for another girl while in the army, she turns dominant and vengeful. As in the first Moonlight Whispers clip I linked to above, there’s a powerful moment where the young woman truly comes into her sense of dominant power over men, and we can see in her face her new awareness as a pathetic older man (Claude Akins) pleads for her friendship even as he offers her a present of red high heels! Amazing scene. Look for this movie on TCM again…because I’m sure they will rerun it. They have to, it’s a kinky gem! 🙂

Any newbie domme could learn a lot from seeing Diane McBain’s stunning portrayal of ultra-tease Claudelle Inglish!

SPOILER ALERT: Since Claudelle Inglish was made in 1961, the brazen greedy temptress does not come to a good end. Movies still preached an old-fashioned morality back then. But if Claudelle existed in today’s world, there’s no doubt she could make a mint as an online or “real-time” domme, draining her admirers for a flow of presents that would never end…

I hope you enjoyed this little bit of film history. I’m investigating a couple more rare movies with femdom themes, and I’ll be writing about them soon. These are some of the films that influence me in my own writing, so if you feel in the mood for some femdom stories in ebook form, check out my tales LEARNING TO BE CRUEL…

Fulfilling the world’s pornography needs since 1974!

Busy, busy. After noodling around for a couple of weeks, changing this and that, I finally put up a sort of portfolio on a separate page on this blog here. I’m always looking for new freelance projects, and I think this will be a nice way of communicating my various accomplishments, capabilities, tendencies and possibilities to new clients. You can see the page here, or just click on the headline at the top of this page: WHAT CAN I DO FOR YOU? 

“Here is the pornography you requested, madame!”

Hustling for freelance work is a necessity in these changing times, when the Internet has helped shrink the magazine market in which I worked for so many years. My clients are now a mix of publications and websites.

Here’s to progress! So long Industrial Revolution, all hail the Digital Evolution!

I like to drink red wine out of a shot glass from Hawaii with a hula girl playing a ukelele, a gift from a good buddy. The shot glass, I mean, not the hula girl.

Anyway, as you see I have a rather irreverent approach even to serious things like getting new clients. But this irreverent approach is very much who I am. I take my work seriously but I don’t take myself too seriously.

That’s why I call writing “cranking” instead of writing. I plan to crank till I croak. No retirement for me. Let me expire over my laptop while I’m composing “girl copy” for a set of photos of the latest lovely nineteen-year-old sensation to hit the smut scene. Or while placing a tip in a stripper’s garter. (Or in the ankle straps of her platform shoes, the preferred destination for my singles.)

Anyway, check out WHAT CAN I DO FOR YOU? Because you never know–perhaps I can do something for you that needs doing.

And just to end this post on a feminine note, here is a picture of Annette Funicello, the well-remembered starlet of the 50s and 60s. I was inspired to look for Annette pictures online after watching her in the 1963 movie Beach Party on TCM the other night. It’s a flick I first saw in the theater when it originally came out, but I hadn’t caught up with it again until now. Boy, was she ever sexy in that movie! And isn’t this a great foot shot? I found it at a blog called Sweet Lorraine’s World of Everything Classic here. That’s a title that could almost sum up a lot of my own interests.

This gives me an idea for a kinky beach movie about a BSOC (Big Slave on Campus) who lives to carry Annette’s textbooks for her, and massage and polish her toes…

As you can see from my interpretation of the Annette shot, erotica is truly in the eye of the beholder. Or you can it pornography, as you see I sometimes do.

By the way, if you like how I think, why not try one of my ebooks? Or if you don’t like the way I think, maybe you’ll still like the way I write. You can find my femdom erotica on Kindle here.

Never underestimate the power of a beautiful face…

Right now on Turner Classic Movies they are showing Tom Jones, the 1963 movie that made Albert Finney a star in the role of the 18th century lover boy. I saw this movie in the theater when I was 12 years old and it made an indelible impression on my budding erotic consciousness…mostly in the form of Susannah York.

Susannah York as Sophie in Tom Jones (1963)

For years afterward the 18th century represented, in my mind, an era when sex was bawdy and joyous. And not just for me–this was a very common fantasy in the 1960s with other people as well, as a result of this extremely successful movie. And seeing it at such an impressionable age helped steer me in the direction of my eventual trade as a writer of erotica.

Never underestimate the power of a beautiful face such as Miss York’s in this film. The desire to see such a face direct its affection in my direction was one of the things that spurred me ten years later to begin to write and publish about a thousand stories in which I imagined just such a thing happening. Because central in my stories are always the pretty ladies who look deep into the eyes of the hero and spur him onto all sorts of curious activities.

Also, come to think of it, the thousands of photo layouts I edited for adult magazines over the years are based in the same trope of a beautiful girl looking into the eyes of the horny swain…

Around the time I saw Tom Jones I also developed a long-standing adolescent crush on a girl in my class who had similar looks to Miss York, and I also lived for a time in Manhattan with a girl whose face resembled hers.

I’m sure Susannah’s decolletage also had its effects on the young lad I once was…and the scribe I am today!

(I found these Tom Jones shots at a site called HomeVideos.com.)

Tom Jones offered many visual delights such as this.
