Giving It Up For Lent

A Beginner’s Guide To Tease And Denial.

Lent is upon us and having used up the last reserves of fats and meats on Shrove Tuesday, good Christians are fasting and turning their backs on luxuries in the name of penitence. Self-denial during lent seems to have transcended the Christian faith and become a cultural period of moderation, inspiring people to give up vices which may be bad for them in excess, such as chocolate or alcohol.

The voluntary denial of pleasure seems to be ingrained in human behaviour, people stick to bizarrely restrictive diets when trying to lose weight, when merely cutting down on calories and going for a jog in the morning would achieve more or less that same result. It is as if we feel the self-imposed, often fairly torturous (remember the cabbage soup diet anyone?) limitations will somehow make up for having over indulged in the first place and magically alter the laws of biology so that the excess weight will be cancelled out by the misery.

Perhaps in some cases people get a kick out of self-denial too, enjoying the victory of willpower over temptation, having the chance to feel good about themselves having given up sweeties for 40 days, and maybe a little justified when they pig out on Easter eggs as soon as lent is over. Delayed satisfaction can be a pleasure in itself, the first glass of wine after 40 days abstinence is always going to hold a higher value and therefore be perceived as more pleasurable than the glass of wine had with dinner every day for the rest of the year. People like to feel they have earned something, be it the Friday evening pint after a hard working week or the huge Sunday roast after a period of dieting, the pleasure is always going to be greater for the perception of it being a ‘reward’.

It comes as no surprise then that people have managed to erotize denial. At first it seems like a bizarre concept, to gain sexual pleasure from the denial or restriction of sexual pleasure. It looks like an entirely counterproductive exercise, however it is a surprisingly common fetish, enjoyed by women and men of all persuasions. Denial is such a popular sexual theme in fact that there is a whole range of toys and devices designed to help people keep their partner from touching where they have been told not to, many selling for upwards of £100. There are multiple websites devoted entirely to the discussion of sexual denial and ‘key-holding’- where someone keeps the key to another person’s locked chastity device to prevent them taking it off without permission and this ‘service’ is popular with clients of professional dominatrices as well as between lovers.

Erotic sexual control takes place in many ways. Some people like to play with ‘tease and denial’ or ‘tie and tease’ in which one partner is deliberately turned on, touched, stroked and tormented, sometimes while restrained, but denied the ultimate release until the ‘dominant’ partner decides orgasm has been delayed long enough. This is perhaps the easiest aspect of denial to understand, there is pleasure to be had in the torment, a bit like extended foreplay. The ‘Dominant’ partner pays a lot of attention to the ‘submissive’ partner, spending a lot of time arousing them, turning them on. If this foreplay goes on a little longer than is comfortable it just adds to the pleasure when it comes. Being kept on the edge of orgasm for a period of time can intensify the sensation of orgasm when it does happen. The waiting, and perhaps begging and pleading can make the coveted release that much sweeter.

Guest Starring... Slave Nano!

How ‘Alice in Wonderland’ inspired the book...

On this week’s part of my two week blog tour to promote my new book, ‘Alice in Fetishland’ I’m talking about how the classic ‘Alice in Wonderland‘ and ‘Alice Through the Looking Glass’ books inspired my own bdsm/fetish re-imagining of them.

The ‘Alice’ books provide great material for a bdsm re-working. For starters, they are one of those rare works where the characters are so well known and recognised that your readers will understand the references. They have become ingrained in our collective consciousness, not just through Lewis Caroll’s original stories and Sir John Tenniel’s iconic illustrations but also through numerous film and television re-interpretations. Who hasn’t heard of Alice, the White Rabbit or the Red Queen?

Although conceived as children’s books they have a dark underbelly to them, which many artists and illustrators have drawn out, and this lends itself to the creation of an alternative bdsm/fetish world. Many of the characters have a nightmarish quality about them and this was an atmosphere I wanted to capture in my book.

In my version Alice becomes the main character, Kim. The Red Queen is, well, the Red Queen, but a version of her you would not have seen before. She is a red and black PVC clad dominatrix who rules over Nemesisland, a fetish fantasy world of her own creation appearing throughout the book in numerous guises and costumes. The developing relationship between Kim and The Red Queen and her journey into submission forms the heart of the narrative of the story.

The Red Queen also has The Duchess, her transvestite lady-in-waiting and companion. The Cheshire Cat becomes the black cat, who acts as a guide to Kim through the strange world she finds herself in and also relates the back-story that explains why she has been selected and brought to serve The Red Queen. The White Rabbit, the Hatter, Tweedledum and Tweedledee, the Caterpillar, the Walrus and the Carpenter and the Lion and the Unicorn all make an appearance in the book.

Like Alice, in this version of the tale, Kim also has a lot of adventures but of a bdsm and fetish kind. The book contains scenes of bondage, cock and ball torture, nipple torture, corporal punishment, electrical play, wax play, medical play, breath play, strap-on play and cling film mummification, so there are some quite descriptive BDSM scenes in there. Kim becomes a willing and enthusiastic partner as the Red Queen torments her into submission. But Kim is somebody special to the Red Queen and there is a much deeper purpose behind her being brought to serve her.

Story blurb

In this bdsm re-invention of the Alice stories Kim’s life takes an unexpected twist when she is taken from the massage parlour she works in to a fetish fantasy world ruled over by the Red Queen, a powerful dominatrix. There, an intense psychological drama is played out between the two women as Kim enters a journey into submission. The Red Queen assumes different characters who torment Kim in a series of trials ranging from the funny and strange to the sadistic and erotic. Kim is lured deeper into this world by hints the Red Queen knows something about her past. Why has she been chosen to serve this powerful female? Why is the Red Queen so interested in her? When Kim finally finds out the truth, it is shocking and bizarre.

Excerpt from Adventures in Fetishland...

“She looks tasty,” announced the walrus.

“Yes, very tasty,” echoed the carpenter.

“Do you think she’ll come and play with us?”

“It doesn’t look as though she has any choice walrus. She has been offered up for us,” replied the carpenter, who started massaging Kim’s tits through the crisp cotton pinafore dress.

“I think we should have some fun,” said the carpenter as his fingers disappeared under the dress to explore Kim’s cunt.

“Oh, definitely yes.”

The walrus’s fat fingers were running down Kim’s mound seeking out her hole as the carpenter unbuttoned the top of the dress to expose her lovely breasts for more attention and started to rub and knead her nipples. Kim began to purr with the attention. She couldn’t help it, it was an instinctive reaction. She might have felt violated but she didn’t. She had too much experience for that and besides, she had so let herself go into the spirit of Nemesisland that nothing really shocked her any more. She gasped. The walrus had found her sex and slipped a finger inside it and was massaging the inside of her cunt with a twisting motion. Shit, thought Kim, that feels good. Her cunt was sopping wet. It just responded instantly to stimulation in that way. Kim put it down to the years working in the massage parlour where she had to be in a constant state of readiness. Kim groaned. Another finger had been thrust into her cunt and the carpenter was tweaking her tender nipples between thumb and finger. The walrus pulled out his fingers and held them to his nose.

“She smells of oysters,” he announced.

“Oh, that’s our favourite,” said the carpenter.

Oysters, thought Kim, what a cheek!

“Here, have a taste of her,” said the walrus stretching his hand out to the carpenter.

He hungrily sucked Kim’s cunt juices off the walrus’s fingers.

“Very tasty. I’ve always said, you can’t beat the smell and taste of oysters. Are you going to eat her up?”

“Oh yeah,” said the walrus.

“Well don’t eat her all up. Save some of her juices for me. I know how greedy you are.”

“Me, greedy? You’re just as greedy.”
