Look what I just found over on Asudem Latex's site. This the perfect combination of MC, technology, depersonalization, and mannequin fetishism all in one short but oh-so-sweet video. Okay, actually, AL has three videos, but this is the one that really did it for me; the other two are just models posing.

*sigh* the things people find to obsess about

Of course you can see Dr. Manhattan's junk in the Watchmen trailer! Would anyone who's read the graphic novel have expected any less?

Anyway, the headline and some of the commentary are rather amusing.

Also, I see from this story that MTV now has an HD version of the trailer, so I'll update my links and pics in the post further down the page.

Sometimes my posts just write themselves

Did you know that actress Scarlett Johansson is a mind-controlled clone? This guy does.

A Peek Beneath the Duct Tape: Solitaire

But first, some good news for those of you who were reluctant to download those RTF previews of Willing Subject and What Do You Give the Man Who Has Everything?: the updates are now online. Unfortunately, it's going to be another week before Simon can post "A Tenpack of Trixies," so you're stuck with the RTF files on that one a little longer.

At the same time I send Simon the five Trixie chapters, I also plan to send him a new tweak on Solitaire; but I must admit that when I looked it over again recently, I only felt the need to change a handful of words. My Muse and I were really going at it hot and heavy that day in a way I've only experienced once before - and that wasn't in writing erotica (though it did involve some MC - tease, tease). I came up with the idea for "Solitaire" one morning (probably after spending a long time the previous night really playing it), sat down to write that afternoon, and had the whole piece finished before sundown. You might say, continuing the Greek goddess analogy, that it sprang full-blown from my head onto the screen.

Of course, I was influenced by several other stories in writing this one, including one by a writer sadly no longer active on the EMCSA. Thank goodness for the Wayback Machine - and thank goodness Sara H herself has returned, even if she's not quite up to writing yet. Sara, if you're reading this, here's a virtual hug and a genuine "Glad to have you back." EDIT: Sara is fully back now, stories and all. You can find "Hiss" on the EMCSA here.

Anyway, at the time I wrote "Solitaire," I was still reveling in the newness of finding a fetish home on the web and reading everything I could get my greedy little eyeballs on. I also really was playing a lot of Solitaire and Freecell while writing as a sort of cybernetic alternative to tapping a pencil against my teeth in thought. Such simple games, but they really do suck you in - and zone you out. It really is true, as I say in the story, that we can fall into a low-grade trance while focusing on a simple task; it's happened to me countless times, especially with computer games. It's like that demanding king who follows you with his eyes (in Freecell, actually, not Solitaire) really does force you to keep playing game after game after game. I used to love that feeling of half wanting to stop and not quite being able to pull myself away from the screen.

But of course, my favorite part of the story is the latter half, when the narrator is transformed into a mindless, shiny black robot with a number (and not even a unique one, at that) where her face used to be. I've always been fascinated with the idea of depersonalization...okay, well, I've always been extremely turned on by the idea of depersonalization. Taking everything that makes a human being an individual, right down to her/his face and fingerprints, and erasing it completely - that, to me, is the hottest aspect of mind control. Adding a slick, black layer of fetishy goodness is really just icing on the cake; but such yummy icing it is.

Then there's the bit about the mouse - the whole reason (as if you couldn't guess) I added a "Don't try this at home" warning at the top of the story. It seems ridiculous to think I'd have to issue a warning about something as obvious as that, but there's a reason gas stations have signs advising people not to suction gas with their mouths, and that a milk carton I saw once in Wales (Hi, sc ;-)) bore a label saying, "Warning: contains milk." Some people are just stupid enough to need such warnings, and I will accept no responsibility for anyone who ends up in some emergency room somewhere with a computer mouse jammed inside an orifice not designed to handle it. But I do still think it's a cool idea. The female anatomy just makes such a perfect computer port, doesn't it?

Watchmen watchers, this is for you

Well, I guess if you're really serious about following the latest Watchmen movie news, you've probably at least heard about and maybe already seen and/or recorded the latest leaked footage. Me, I found it just now on io9, then followed an AICN link to a YouTube version for the sake of comparison. The io9 version is bigger and better, so if you haven't seen it yet, go there. EDIT: Strike that. Go to for the HD version.

As for those of you on dial-up who want to know if it's worth the load time, I can tell you this: the new trailer is 1:48 in length and is about half-and-half old footage vs. new - the latter of which includes more of Latex Laurie in action, a glimpse of (I assume) Karnak hanging on the edge of an icy cliff face, Dr. Manhattan disassembling a tank with a wave of his hand, and a couple of great shots of Rorschachian acrobatics. But the best part is how the trailer closes: a fantastic slow-motion look at the Comedian's death plunge.

Here are a few screen grabs just to whet your appetites a little further (new versions now from the HD trailer):

The eyes are the windows to the...what?

Anyone who's read many of my MC stories can't help but notice my fetish for altered eyes. It's an obvious connection, and one I've been making since my childhood, thanks to those old Saturday morning cartoons where childhood idols like Wonder Woman got MC'ed and their eyes spun or glowed or (best of all) turned solid white. I didn't understand then just why altering the eyes of an MC victim was so appropriate, but I learned to link the two early on.

When I first started fantasizing about lesbian MC in earnest, almost all my private stories featured full-sclera white contact lenses. I was very disappointed to learn, after a bit of internet browsing, that in real life the wearer can't actually see out of the damn things. So there went my hopes of ever playing out that fantasy in public...not that it was ever very likely in the first place. Fortunately, I can still play it out vicariously online.

And there are some viable, almost-as-hot alternatives to the all-white look: the gorgeous mirrored lens pictured above, for instance. I've actually fantasized about just such a product I was kid, though I had no idea anyone was really making it until now. But I've recently been on an online fetish scavenger hunt and have turned up some real goodies.

9mm SFX has the best-looking lenses, including the mirrored ones - which, BTW, also come in a black sclera version. Unfortunately, both styles are available only to filmmakers, not the general public. Not that most of us are in a position to plop down $300 on a pair of novelty contact lenses, anyway. But it's nice to dream.

If only these or some other artists would be inspired to take the mirrored effect full-eye, as one Model Mayhem member has done, and as I have done, myself. It's an image I've had in my mind for years, but it doesn't seem to have occurred to very many other people, at least not people who feel like sharing. Dammit. I'd love to see a big-budget movie about mirror-eyed, brainwashed cyborgs...maybe starring Angelina Jolie as the brave resistance fighter who succumbs in the end. Of course, her natural eyes are so lovely that it would almost be a shame to cover them up; but in this case I'd make an exception. ;-)

Anyway, before my stream of consciousness carries me completely around the bend from 9mm SFX, let me just let me throw out a quick "Look here!" to any fellow Neil Gaiman fans. Remind you of anyone? Mmm, tasty! ;-P

And now, onward. I found site after site of novelty contact lenses in my little scavenger hunt, but most of them offered the same set of products, and most of that set were more more cute than cool. There was this, though - a surprisingly high-toned subsection of a fairly standard Halloween-goth-gear site. I particularly like the nitrous sclera lenses. I can definitely see that effect working its way into an MC story: the blue flames starting at the victim's clit and crawling slowly, deliciously upward. By the time they reach her eyes, they've burned away everything she ever was before and left nothing in their wake but darkness and desire.

Sweet dreams, my friends.

Sunday, October 19, 2008


Well, the new EMCSA update is posted, but Simon has e-mailed me to let me know that he won't have my "Willing Subject" and "What Do You Give" revisions online until later in the week. I'm disappointed, but hey, the site's all free, and at least he's nice enough to allow writers to update their work. I really can't complain. Besides, I did a pretty good job of that once already today, didn't I? ;-)

So instead, I'll take this opportunity to point you toward Jukebox's latest, a lovely green piece called Video Killed the Radio Star. His 1980's song title shtick is always fun, but I must admit, it strikes rather an odd chord in this story since it's set in the 1950's. Not that I mind. It's a hot, well-done piece with an interesting MC'er. In fact, Jukebox has been on a pretty darn good roll lately. I should have mentioned him before now. Sorry, J. :-)

sara castle also has a second chapter of Athame online, and things just keeping getting slicker and shinier. Yum.

Enjoy. :-)

Warning: political rant ahead

Sorry, but I just have to make my voice heard somewhere, and it most certainly won't be heard in my home state.

I just got one of those "political poll" phone calls. You know, the kind that at first just seems to be gathering opinions and then starts asking increasingly leading questions that are meant to make you think one guy's better than the other guy. I cut her off at the pass the moment she started down that road, and she quickly retreated back to the more neutral questions, but I'm left with a bad taste in my mouth.

And the worst part is, when she started homing in on the two candidates running for local congressional seats, I realized much to my embarrassment that I didn't know a thing about either of them, not even which was the Democrat and which was the Republican. In a way, I feel ashamed of myself; but in another way, I almost feel justified, because in a state so overwhelmingly tilted toward one party, people of the other party just don't have much of a voice. They try, but they're constantly shouted down, even preached against from area pulpits. Hell, my state is one of those that voted (by a frighteningly large margin) to write discrimination against people like me right into the constitution. Why should I, where I am, have any hope of making a difference on election day? Oh, I'll vote, I'll vote - but the congressman I'll vote for won't stand a chance; and my vote for president will be bundled up with all the others in the state and given to the guy I didn't vote for.

Sometimes this system sucks. I just don't know of a better one.

In Praise of Tipping the Velvet

The miniseries, I mean. ;-)

I'm not generally a fan of romances; as you can see from the list of favorite movies in my profile, I tend toward a) raunchy comedies made by people with more on their mind than fart jokes and b) stylistic suspense and/or action flicks made by people with more on their minds than blowing shit up. That being said, Tipping the Velvet does have quite a bit of raunchy comedy and is shot in a modern, stylistic manner despite its Victorian setting. Plus, the featured actresses (all of whom, I think, are straight in real life) totally sell the lesbian romance and sex scenes - the latter of which are among the most genuinely erotic I've ever seen.

Besides, Nan, the heroine, is a delightful character; and her story mirrors my own in some significant ways. Like me, she grows up thinking of herself as straight because she just doesn't know there's any other way to be. All she knows is, she isn't nearly as interested in having sex with her boyfriend as he and her sister think she should be. I've alluded to the rowboat scene before in this blog; that was so me at that stage of my life.

Then Nan goes to a vaudeville show and finds herself absolutely (sorry, there's no better word) enthralled by a charming young drag king named Kitty. Now, Kitty isn't a modern drag king (And thank goodness for that; women who look like men do nothing for me. On the other hand, I absolutely adore drag queens). She's a pretty young woman who cuts her hair short, wears a gentleman's suit, and winkingly sings about all the women she's loved. Before you know it, Nan's joining her act in a number of different ways, all of which are quite enjoyable - for them and for us.

But that's only the first third of the miniseries. In the second third, Nan falls in with a domme who turns Nan into her personal love slave and exhibits her at fetish balls in various outlandish getups. My favorite is when she paints Nan gold from head to toe, straps a ginormous dildo on her, and introduces her as "Hermaphrodite" (with the final "e" pronounced). When Domme Diana leads her out into the crowd, Nan's face is totally impassive, as if she really has been turned into a mindless living statue. Gah, it's just soooo hot. Here, have a closer look - and an even closer one. Wouldn't you just kill to have a woman like this in your bed?

But that's only the second third of the miniseries, and I really would be doing you an injustice if I spoiled the final act. Try not to hear too much about it before you see it; it's full of delightful twists and turns, and the climax is a real gut-wrencher - in the best possible way.

All in all, Tipping the Velvet is a five-star rental, if not an outright purchase. Check it out. You'll thank me later.

I don't plan to make a habit of this, but...

Here I go again, stitching together a post of totally unconnected bits and pieces.

First up is this absolutely amazing new pic of Kumi Monster from Deviant Art. HW-Design really outdid themselves with the costume, and Kumi carries it off as only she can. Of course, I should also give credit to the photographer, Kelly Lind, who has quite a nice gallery at Deviant Art.

Second, here's a quick thanks/shout-out to Tony at The Fetishistas for providing me with the right-sized banner to add his site to my sidebar. All the banners on the site were too long, but he was gracious enough to give me some alternatives - such a nice selection of alternatives, in fact, that I had a very hard time deciding which one to use. I might swap them out later on. Anyway, do stop by the site when you get a chance. It's chock full of free fetish goodness.

Lastly, I've e-mailed Simon the revised versions of "Willing Subject" and "What Do You Give The Man Who Has Everything?," so those of you who didn't feel comfortable about downloading the RTF previews should be able to find the finished products online sometime Sunday. Meanwhile, for those of you who don't mind downloading RTF files, here are the five revised chapters of "A Tenpack of Trixies," which won't show up on the EMCSA for another week and a half:

Chapter 1
Chapter 2
Chapter 3
Chapter 4
Chapter 5

In the interest of diversity (or maybe just contrariness)...

Just for once (heh, so far, anyway), I'd like to go totally against the spirit of this blog and share a few pics of some men I like to look at. There's nothing particularly fetishy about most of these images; they're just shots I like. In fact, some of them have been on my hard drive since the time I thought I was straight (like that '90's-era Vanity Fair cover); others, I Googled just now. I hope those of you who like looking at men will enjoy - and those of you who don't won't hold it against me. ;-)

Now, first of all, anyone who knows me at all knows I have to start with Jude Law - and give him twice as much space as anyone else. That's just because, well, he's Jude Law. And look: there is one fetish picture in the mix...or maybe more than one, depending on how you feel about barnyard animals. ;-)

BTW, if you're as much of a Gigolo Joe fan as I am (IMO, he was by far the best part of A.I.), you might enjoy this YouTube video of all his best moments, including the absolutely delightful seduction of a woman who's never been with an android before and isn't quite sure how she feels about first. But embedding the video itself here would be overkill, wouldn't it? sigh

Anyway, on to my second-favorite object of platonic lust, Ewan McGregor. I liked him best in his Shallow Grave period, when he had longer hair, but I had a hard time finding any decent shots of him like that. Fortunately, there were plenty of other, quite satisfactory pics to choose from.

Another actor I've enjoyed for years is Taye Diggs. He has the most beautiful smile and the most beautiful bald head I've ever seen...on a man, anyway. ;-)

And then, of course, there's Orlando Bloom. I didn't particularly care for his look as Legolas; I much prefer him in Will Turner mode, with his natural coloring and longish, tousled hair.

Now here are three random images of guys I used to like and/or still do. First is, IMO, the best-looking man on TV today, though I no longer watch his show (Heroes): Sendhil Ramamurthy. And since I hear they're Fly-ifying him in upcoming episodes, I'm doubly glad not to be watching. Anyway, next is another guy whose show (Lost) I don't watch but whom I have been following since The English Patient: Naveen Andrews (Do you sense a trend in the hairstyles I like on men?). And then there's Brendan Fraser, who used to be quite attractive, especially in George of the Jungle, when he displayed both his body and his comedy chops to maximum effect. I've never figured out why he didn't become a bigger star; he has tons of charisma. Unfortunately, now he seems to be a bit past his "sell by" date.

Finally, here's one last pic for my beloved, who thinks Ashton Kutcher is the prettiest boy she's ever seen and frequently comments on the fact that, if he were a girl, she'd fuck him in a heartbeat. Oh, and she swears she loves his personality, too. And his cougar wife. ;-)

Well, that's it for my little digression into man-love. Tune in next time when we return to our regularly scheduled programming.

While we're all sitting around twiddling our thumbs...

...until the next EMCSA update (scheduled for the weekend of October 18), here are a couple of other stories you might enjoy reading.

First is the initial installment of a new sara castle series called Athame. sara let me in on the ground floor of this one, but I have no more idea where it's heading than the rest of you. All I know is that I like where it's been so far: gynoids, programming pods, mysterious-but-so-far-unseen mistresses...all the usual stuff that pushes my buttons. And that last scene - bwah! It's like a bad porno come to life, but in a good way. MC changes everything for the better. ;-)

Next, as promised, here's a Rich Text preview of "What Do You Give the Man Who Has Everything?" 2.0. I ended up polishing/revising it quite extensively (about twice as much as I did "Willing Subject," and I did a good bit with that one). I'm quite pleased with the results. You'll have a much better idea of Suzanne's inner conflicts this time around - and perhaps catch a glimpse of John Dominic's headspace, as well.

Again, these links will only be active until Simon posts the real thing on the EMCSA:

Part I
Part II
Part III

Once you're done (re)reading, you might enjoy going back over my Peek Beneath the Duct Tape on "What Do You Give."

Also, be on the lookout for more inappropriate (well, for this sort of blog, anyway ;-P) Jude Law deliciousness on Wednesday.

It's Latex Superwoman!

Or at least, that's the vibe I get from this pic of Jade Vixen from Christine Kessler's blog. Funny, Bianca Beauchamp did a couple of "latex superheroine" spreads several months ago, but I didn't enjoy any of those pics nearly as much as this one. Bianca, as always, just seemed to be playing around; but Jade Vixen looks ready to whup some serious ass. She'd scrape Bianca off the bottom of her boot on the way to the real throwdown.

The image above came from a photo shoot that also involved Darenzia (again, see Christine Kessler's blog for pics of both models alone and together); however, Jade Vixen also has a rather nice Model Mayhem gallery, which has recently been updated with more photos. I don't think she has a gallery on Deviant Art, but she could be going by another name there; so if anyone finds her, let me know. She's definitely a model worth watching.

Oh, and one other thing: this tough-looking model is a professional dominatrix...but I still think this pic from my first Ecstasy of Surrender gallery looks more than a little submissive. Just don't tell her I said that. ;-)

P.S.: Sorry, here's another "one other thing": The updated "What Do You Give the Man Who Has Everything?" will premiere here tomorrow.

Friday, October 10, 2008


I just checked Stat Counter again, and I see that I've finally lured in a couple of visitors from my own home state. So here's a quick, "Hi, y'all," to the two of them - not that they know who they are, and not that I'm going to tell them. ;-P

My First Crush

I spent my teenage years in the 1980's, crushing on the then-typical objects of pubescent lust like Scott Baio and Simon LeBon. But my pre-pubescent years were the 1970's, and looking back on it now, I realize that my real first crush was one of the members of the New Mickey Mouse Club, Nita. At the time, I just knew I liked her, maybe thought I'd like to be friends with her. But knowing what I know now, I realize that this was my very first case of falling for the black-haired, olive-skinned type of female I appreciate so much today.

Recently, while idly surfing the 'net, I stumbled across a reference to the New Mickey Mouse Club; and that prompted me to do a bit of more intentional searching. There are a few pictures and videos of Nita online, which I've decided not to link to here because of the kind of blog this is. I don't want to encourage any passing pedophiles, on every one of whom, male and female, I wish the same fate as Jeff Kohlver in Hard Candy.

As for Nita, she really was very cute; I can see why I liked her. In fact, I believe I had better taste before I hit puberty than after - and I'm not just saying that because after puberty I was crushing on guys. Scott Baio and Simon LeBon really were very good looking back then, though I must say that neither of them has aged particularly well. But I also had crushes on some B- to Z-list actors whom I look back on now and wonder what the hell I was thinking. I guess I just had my head up my ass for awhile there. Then again, I suppose we all do, as teens.

Anyway, here's to Nita. I hope she has a happy life and didn't get too badly chewed up by the Hollywood machine.

Updated "Willing Subject" Now Online

As I said in my previous post, I've put a nice, new coat of glossy black polish on "Willing Subject"; but Simon is off duty this week, so the new version of the story won't hit the EMCSA until mid-October. Therefore, in the meantime, I'm temporarily posting a quick and dirty Rich Text version on GeoCities. There's no fancy formatting, but it's perfectly readable; so if you can't wait for the "official" version, just follow these links:

Part I
Part II
Part III

Oh, and if you missed the "Peek Beneath the Duct Tape" on this story, here it is.

Before the end of the week, I hope to have added an updated version of "What Do You Give the Man Who Has Everything"; and then "A Tenpack of Trixies" next week. And, of course, I'll be taking them all down once they get posted on the EMCSA. I don't want to compete with Simon. ;-)

More Randomness

First, returning visitors will notice that I've been doing quite a lot of layout tweaking the last couple of days. I think I'm finished now...or nearly. The most noticeable changes are widening of the columns and adding some graphic links to a few favorite websites. I had to make the EMCSA one myself, since Simon's site is all text and no graphics; and I had to fudge the io9 one to get the actual name of the site in with the mascot. There are a couple more sites I need to stop by, looking for logos, but I don't have time at the moment. Also, if I have your site listed in my links and you have a logo you'd like me to use, just e-mail it to me and I'll add it in.

Second, I found out after yesterday's post that Simon is taking a week off and the next EMCSA update won't be until mid-October. Therefore, since I already have "Willing Subject" finished and should have one or two other stories done before then, I'm thinking of posting them temporarily to my my GeoCities sort-of-site. Just give me a day or two, and I'll let you know when they're up.

Sunday, October 5, 2008

How do you title a post that's just a bunch of disconnected ideas?

First, I found the picture at left over Christine Kessler's blog yesterday and knew I just had to post it. Such a lovely submissive expression on Angela Ryan's face.

Then there's this delightful pic of Ulorin Vex and Kumi Monster in clear hoods and white latex that I found at Deviant Art sometime last week and never got around to posting. There's no nudity here, so I assume that even those of you who don't have an account at DA yet should be able to view it.

Thirdly, I owe an apology to any of you who have subscribed to get e-mail notifications when I update my blog, since I've been doing some test posts over the last few days which I delete immediately. If you ever get a notification for a post titled "Test," just ignore it, because it'll be gone by the time you get there, and it probably wasn't worth looking at anyway.

And lastly, just a heads-up. I'm slowly going back through my old EMCSA stories, polishing them a bit more and adding links to the appropriate "Peek Beneath the Duct Tape" entries. I'm going slowly because I don't want to datadump on Simon, long-suffering (not to mention taciturn) fellow that he is. ;-) So far, updated versions of Spellbound, Someday My Prince Will Come, Raggedy Anne and Raggedy Andy are online. Yesterday I did a very satisfactory polish on "Willing Subject," but that one will have to wait for the next EMCSA update, so don't bother looking for it online until next Sunday. I'm also hoping to add "What Do You Give the Man Who Has Everything" and maybe also "A Tenpack of Trixies" before then. I'll be sure to keep you updated.

Erotic Art History 101

Okay, right up front: when it comes to critiquing fine art, I have absolutely no credentials whatsoever. But I do appreciate beauty when I see it, and I've found some lovely pieces at The Art Renewal Center that I think visitors to my blog might also enjoy. And look: I'm letting the men in on the fun again! ;-P

First up is William Bouguereau, who has page after page after page of paintings at the ARC, mostly of children. They're cute and sweet and all; but uh uh, not for here. Nope, these are the ones you might enjoy. I'm actually using the first of the three as my desktop image right now. Mmm, I could just stare at that body forever. :-)

Next we have John William Waterhouse, who had a real gift for combining innocence, power, and nudity in his portraits of famous myths. I've been using calendars of his artwork for the last couple of years and love almost all his paintings. It's hard to choose just a few to showcase here, but if you like what you see, there are plenty more where these came from.

It's funny how so many classical artists enjoyed painting pictures of men being seduced and spirited away by supernatural creatures to who-knows-what fate. For instance, the nymphs in the picture above might look all sweet and innocent, but (cue dramatic music) Hylas was never heard from again! As for the drowning man begging for help from the siren, well, he's probably better off without her...though you never know. Who says all those multitudes of sailors seduced by her kind died on the rocks along with their ships? That might be just what the sirens want you to think. ;-) Anyway, here are a few more pictures along those same lines:

Unfortunately, the only classical painting I've found so far of women being spirited away by supernatural beings is that one at the top of Cupid and Psyche. For F/f action, I have to go back to Model Mayhem and Vizerskaya or Tiny Dragon Productions, and this is supposed to be an entry about art history, not present art.

Well, at least there's this one last painting to feed my white wedding fetish. And since the owner of the harem isn't pictured, it's easy enough for me to imagine a Sultana rather than a Sultan. ;-)

So *this* is what Jessica Alba has to do to gain my attention

I've never thought much about Jessica Alba before now. Sure, she's lovely...on the outside. Inside, I've never sensed much of anything at all. Then I found this photo a week ago, and for once found myself actually interested in her. Heh, and I thought that would be the only time. I really wasn't expecting to have multiple instances of the "Jessica Alba" tag on my blog.

But then I came across this. Look, she's got actually personality and a sense of humor! Of course, the slick black gloves don't hurt, either. And then, to top it all off with a nice, shiny cherry, is the fetish aspect of the muzzle. Enjoy:

I really do seem to have a lot to say this week

I normally do two posts a week, sometimes three; but now it's two posts in one day. Short ones, though. And don't worry; I still plan to post my usual entry over the weekend.

It's just that I've continued to think about maps and stats and how much information to share with you. I want to protect my visitors' identities as much as I protect my own, so I never even considered using any of those map counters that identify visitors by city or - worse yet - IP addresses. Unfortunately, that didn't leave me much to choose from, so in the end I just gave up.

But I was looking over my stats at Stat Counter just now (You wouldn't believe how much data you can get by using them - and it's all free), and it occurred to me that I could share a couple of screen grabs that don't reveal too much information but are still quite interesting. So here's a whole-world view of the latest visitor map (only the last 500 hits or something like that). If you look closely, you can see that I now have two viewers in Iceland. For some reason I find that especially exciting. Iceland. Wow.

And now here's a breakdown of the number of hits I've had recently from each country. Again, this is only the most recent information. If you choose Stat Counter's "free" option, your data is a little limited. Not much, though. I definitely recommend it if you have a blog or website of your own.

Do I detect a hint of an EMC vibe here?

Decide for yourself.

Free Fetish Stuff Never Gets Old

I'm sure many of you are already familiar with top fetish photog Christine Kessler, who has a large gallery on Deviant Art and a popular pay site which I'm just itching to subscribe to. Unfortunately, finances forbid. For the moment. Fortunately, Ms. Kessler also has a blog which is totally free, offers lots of lovely previews from her photo shoots, and is really just interesting and entertaining in a lot of different ways.

Here's a sampling of recent pics from her blog - all of Apnea, which I'm sure you won't mind a bit. ;-)

Oh, and while we're talking about CK's blog, you might have noticed that the "PervtasticTV" widget I debuted on my blog yesterday came from her blog. I thought it worked better at the bottom of the page than at the top, especially considering that a) it'll be a slow load for those of you still on dial-up, and b) pretty pictures or not, it's still basically advertising. So anyway, let me know what you think about it. Like? Dislike? Post a comment or drop me an e-mail.
