Yaoi Bondage

Standard

* Update (25 Feb 2011): I’m one third of the way through with Catholic School Girls Rule (3rd story in my AFF/Asian Factual Fiction collection). I’ll still try to complete Primal Scream by June 2011 — BDSM is a subject “close to my heart,” and I don’t want to mess things up by rushing the project :).

jack in the box

Jack in the Box is currently around 17,000 words (I initially guessed it’d finish off around 12,500 words). This one’s a blend of erotic/factual fiction.

I jumped over to this short story, because my second BDSM-themed story was getting kinda cliched — I put that one aside to “think” about it a bit more, and I think the temporary break from it was a good move (that one is likely to be titled Switch).

Excerpt from Jack in the Box:

She felt the cold blast from the sterile air conditioning on her bare arms and thighs, as she ambled down the center of the shopping complex’s ground floor. The scene was a swirl of candy bright lights — the Victoria’s Secret fuchsia signboard, signboards which lured one to purchase “confidence,” or “sexual appeal,” or whatever it was that was being advertised — the fluorescent lights in each store, contrasting with the shiny, black-tiled walls and eye-catching speckled marble tiles on the ground.

One could lick the floor — the tiles were spotless, clean like the fake air she was breathing in, like the atoms and cells in her that were decaying in stale neglect.

I’ll try to finish it by today/tomorrow. I’ve got about 2-3 scenes left to handle.

I have been and will continue to “ponder” on the above image, for one of the four remaining BDSM short stories I’ve to complete. I’m quite determined to maintain a level of subtle (or not so subtle) realism in the collection, though I like to be “entertained” with what I read too, so I’ll do my best to maintain a balance (between entertaining fiction, and something a bit more profound/serious/etc). I enjoy navigating the psychological/emotional aspects of sex and sexuality, and this collection is no exception.

Incest was/is a little bit more “straight-forward” for me to handle [since there’s basically ONE main taboo aspect for that subject (the aspect about blood ties/family relations)]. BDSM has a lot more components, and I was initially trying to smash as many elements of BDSM as possible into each story. Then I took a step back and decided to take my usual approach (focusing on characters + storyline), though I will of course filter everything through a BDSM “lens” to keep in line with the theme.

There’ll probably be some gay or bromance or “brotherly love” (or maybe all combined) appearing in one of the stories (#3…can’t remember what I titled that one. Rockstar, if I’m not wrong).

I’ll possibly bore readers who are seeking pornographic material. But then again, I usually take the erotica > porn route. I think there’s the pornographic / media portrayal kind of BDSM (with the fetish wear, equipment, etc), which is alright, and there’s also the power play + dynamics that go beneath the surface.

As a person/sexual being, it’s the latter that engages me more.

I’ll still try to finish Primal Scream (tentative title for full anthology) by June 2011 (was actually aiming to finish bdsm stories by end of Feb 2011 / not going to happen!).

Full Anthology = Incest + BDSM + Interracial Material = Fun.

I thought it’d be more economical/convenient to pack everything into one “deviant” anthology (for final full print + eBook editions).

P.S. Great song, “Dead Flowers” (original version by The Rolling Stones, but I like this version by Townes Van Zandt too). Great lyrics :P!
