I'm mainly here to read and write stories, but am always happy to correspond with people on the things that interest me. Comments are always appreciated - positive or negative.The stories I like best are those which have some extra element that makes them especially subversive or titillating. I hope my own stories have something of that in them. I am drawn to categories like reluctance, taboo, cuckold and the like. Basically anything with an extra kink.My series "The Chain" may look daunting with the number of episodes mounting, but each Link is designed to work as a self-contained story in its own right.
Happy birthday, Verbal! "Literature is the art of discovering something extraordinary about ordinary people, and saying with ordinary words something extraordinary." - Boris Pasternak
I understand that the suggestion is hypothetical, but this, for what it's worth, is my take on it.The implication in the proposal is that quality equals popularity, which would probably be disputed by all but the most extreme postmodernists among professors of literature.My own tastes often run to the unpopular or overlooked, and so on a personal level I would be disappointed to see stories disappear for not gathering the requisite number of reads/scores/comments - hell, whole genres would probably disappear. Nor am I a snob in this. Some extremely well written stuff bores me, and some stuff which is obviously not great has some spirit about it that attracts me anyway.Were such a suggestion to be followed through, it's easy to imagine Lush becoming like Top 40 radio, which is fine if you like the hits, but not so great if you want to be surprised from time to time. Also, there's a real risk that authors would start tailoring their work to quickly acquire reads/scores/comments, which would lead to a significant (and in my view wholly regrettable) mainstreaming of the whole enterprise. One of the great things about Lush is the variety, and I'd hate to see that lost.
There's nothing inherently wrong with sexual variation. One person's gross is another's yum, basically. As long as we're talking consenting adults, everything's fine.Bukkake is just one practice among many that will divide opinion. If you're going to leave stuff out of a story because you're worried about alienating readers, basically you're going to end up with something strictly vanilla (which in turn will alienate those people who think vanilla is basically paint drying). Just go with what the story needs. If it's integral to the plot, everything else will collapse if the scene isn't there.
I'm firmly convinced that we are entering a new financial paradigm because of all this new technology, while financial institutions, governments and economic elites try to convince us all that it will all be business as usual and happy ever after.Very little that is free at the point of use is actually free. There's a truism in media studies that if you're not paying for something, you are the product - which is to say that if you watch commercial TV, you as a viewer are the product (as viewer) that advertisers are paying the TV company to hand them. The same is more graphically true with something like Facebook (which is why I don't do it).Until some kind of new and hopefully better (more equitable/benign) economic paradigm asserts itself, using the Internet is a bit of a Faustian pact. You basically have to work out whether what you want is worth various forms of tracking. Look carefully at what kinds of ads crop up on , and you'll see that they're often related to pages/areas of interest you've visited in the past. Tracking people isn't difficult, if someone really wants to, for whatever reason.It's really up to the individual to work out the risks/benefits of what they do on the net. Given the choice/means, I'd rather pay for something than feel that "I" was being sold on to third parties. We all know that websites cost money to run and maintain. For that reason I don't have a problem with the idea of a membership fee, per se.The only thing is that I don't (and you can call me paranoid if you like) conduct financial transactions of any kind over the internet, though I'll probably feel compelled to at some point in the future. I am, though, very grateful for the Bronze Membership and will endeavour to contribute in the same way as hitherto by publishing stories that (hopefully) people want to read.
“Mate, if you’re gonna watch this stuff, you really need to remember to wipe the internet history.” Pete shot me a glance of incomprehension, but I ignored it, turning back to the screen. “If Kim sees you’ve been watching stuff like this…” “What do you mean?” Pete had come across behind me, resting both hands on the back of the chair. “All this stuff! Double penetration, triple penetration…”...

Well now, I’m sure you can imagine how thrilled I am that you have expressed an interest in meeting. I mean, how long have we corresponded now? It must be three months or so, and I do hope that you aren’t just teasing again, as you do. Because I definitely believe it’s time. If you really want to meet, then let us meet. Of course you know of my proclivities, as I know of yours. There is,...

I was lucky, I know that. Back in the late 80’s when I went up to university, things were easier, financially speaking, and on top of that I lodged with a couple my parents knew well. I wouldn’t say they were close friends of the family, but they were happy enough to accept a weekly cheque for rent which was more or less nominal. As a consequence, I lived very cheaply indeed, with more...

“You know, Ms Perkins, I feel sure these negotiations could be brought to a swift and successful conclusion with the addition of a little sweetener.” Patricia kept a stony face. “A sweetener?” she said. The man on the other side of the table grinned wolfishly. His name was Vasily, and he spoke flawless English, if with an accent. “Yes,” he said, “a sweetener.” Patricia tried to keep...

Tuesday evening. A quarter past eight. It’s dark out. As the train eases out of the main station, the interior of the carriage reflects in the window. I’m right at the front of the train, my back to the driver’s cabin. There aren’t many people in this carriage, since most can’t be bothered to walk the full length of the platform. Nevertheless, I have two people in close proximity. On my...

It seemed a peculiarly old-fashioned way to go about things. These days you expect everything to be distributed digitally, hard copy a thing of the past, though the envelope was delivered in a modern enough way, by courier service, even if driving up in a big van early in the evening to deliver nothing more than an envelope seemed a bit ODD. The sender was unknown to me. I took the envelope...

I was actually quite relieved to be given a room of my own. The ward I’d been on following my operation had been a depressing place. There’d been three other men there, none of whom made great conversation partners. One of them was three-quarters deaf and had apparently left his ear trumpet at home. Just as you’d dozed off, you could rely on one of the nurses bellowing out loud about the need...

Dear Cuck. As always, it was very kind of you to lend me your wife for the night, and equally unwise. Still, by now you know more or less how my mind works, so you really only have yourself to blame. Or rather, since you know how my mind works, I can only assume that you approve. I’m taking the opportunity to write this while your wife is upstairs sleeping. That way you will know all about...

Maybe you think being a male stripper is a glamorous job. Maybe the very job title conjures up images of Chippendales and a hall full of excitable females, maybe even those videos with a room full of women eager to gobble your cock. It’s not really like that, at least not if you’re a one man band, like me. Fitness is paramount, with a regimented diet plan and enough nutritional supplements...

Thank you for responding so promptly to our offer. We hereby cordially invite you to our special Three Rooms Experience. Please expect a representative to call on you at 7 pm this evening. That was all. There was nothing to identify the sender of the text message; number withheld. Anthea felt a thrill run through her body. She didn’t feel afraid, even though it was all very mysterious....
