Her Turn (Part 2, Chapter 2) Updated!

Hypnosis and a pretty girl, but what if the "pretty girl" used to be your husband?

Tom and Christine's adventure continues. Honestly, I'm not a Kindle Publishing whore (well, mostly not), but I thought it would be interesting to treat an E-book like stories posted on Fictionmania and Literotica. Why just post a book, then post a sequel when you can continue the book? Instead of posting follow up chapters like on a free fiction site, I'm posting follow up chapters through the Kindle.

If this is being done in book form, I haven't noticed it.

HER TURN (Part 2; Chapter 3)
In the latest chapter, Christine again has Tom right where she wants him and right where he wants to be. We last left Tom tied to the bed in a suspicious fit of self bondage. Now Christine begins to make good on her warnings of changing him into the slave girl she wants. If Tom was still deluding himself that it might all be a game, he will now see the truth in a very real way.

And on another note, my little whining about having lost a review backfired on me in a big way. I got another review only it was negative (two stars). Oh, well, what can you do? I'll remind myself now that even Stephen King and John Grisham must have people who dislike their work.

If anyone was interested in stats, I've been watching the reports section of Amazon Kindle (which is interesting and convenient). In March, The Bridled Heart sold only a few copies, but it has never sold much, not even when first published. The pony girl genre seems to be less about romance and more abductions and non-consensuality, which doesn't appeal to me at all, but I do like the idea of pony girl training. It's very sexy. Instead of paying attention to the market, I wrote a pony girl romance instead. Also, Little Brown Girl has slowed to a trickle, selling only a dozen or so copies. It did very well for awhile though. Her Turn is averaging about 200 copies a month. I'm not sure what's common to be honest. There are also about 5 - 7 returns, which I thought might have been a part of the borrowing, but now I'm not sure. Maybe people are really buying it and returning it. It's a little disheartening, but it's a good impetus to do better.

I always want to write something that really rocks. I've been considering removing my stories from Fictionmania, rewriting them and posting them on the Kindle. It seems a bit unfair to simply post them on the Kindle when you can already get them for free. On the other hand, I like them the way they are, so maybe I'll just leave well enough alone.

After Her Turn is done, I have an idea for another story in a genre I haven't seen done with TG, but I'd also like to return TG Sci-Fi, which doesn't have enough material. Then again, since there isn't much (like my attempt at pony girl fiction), maybe there is a reason for that. Screw it. Let's find out.

The Mystery of the Missing Review

I don't know why, but I lost a review on Her Turn. I used to have 2 reviews, now I only have one, which is a shame because a review is a review. It doesn't matter if it was good or not (not to me). This one wasn't bad; it gave me 3 stars and brought down my overall rating to 3.5 stars. (I have 4 now that the review is gone.)

I don't mean to be an ego freak, but both I like hearing what people have to say about my fiction, even if they don't like it. On Literotica, they can get pretty damning. I made the mistake of posting my story about a Female Led Relationship in the "Loving Wives" category and found that out quickly. The Loving Wives category is more about wives having sex with other people, not about putting their husbands in dog collars and taking control. Some of the more vivid criticisms called me "sick" and asked that I stay away from their pets / children, which was odd because there was nothing about animals or children in the story. It was also odd, because here was someone most likely pleasuring themselves to online erotica about wives behaving in very slutty ways, damning someone else for writing erotica they didn't agree with (or perhaps that disturbed them). I also noticed some of the same negative reviewers commented on several parts of the story, including the end.

Why would you continue to read something that disgusted you so much?

A Glowing Reviewer (get it?)
On Fictionmania, I've never received a negative review. It tended to be mostly positive, if not glowing. I only wrote a story on Literotica because the plot didn't contain any TG elements. It was the reviews on Fictionmania, however, that made me decide to place some stories in the E-Book market.

I'll say this: I don't need the money, but there is something nice about watching how many copies are being sold, and the moment I get a review, I prepare for the worst, but I'm usually pleasantly surprised.

Before I buy a book on Kindle, I read the reviews. Hell, before I buy anything on Amazon, I read the reviews. Reviews make me want to buy a certain product and steer clear of others. I've posted my own reviews on various products under different names (my pseudonym and my real name) with this in mind. Still, I know that at least for E-books, reviews aren't everything. Some of my favorites have never had a single review. Take "The Hotel" for instance. Not a single review, until I posted one.

For E-books, Fictionmania, etc. I doubt I will ever post a negative review (unless the author has done something egregious). But reviews matter. If you're ever inclined to post one, not necessarily on my work, but on fiction that rocked your boat, rang your clock, lit you up inside, tell the author and the audience that it did.

(For the record, I love pets and children and I'm very good with them and can't conceive of hurting either. My little perversion doesn't change the quality of my soul. If anything, it makes me more sympathetic to everyone's strange internal desires. And it's not perverted either: it's human sexuality. It don't get more diverse and perverse than that.)

She is the Key to your pleasure

There are plenty of desires / fetishes to choose from when you're a guy like me. A lot of them even seem to come in package deals.

For example, read a few stories about male chastity and you might see the idea combined with cuckolding. You might also find it combined with feminization, but not necessarily. There are plenty of guys who wouldn't be caught dead in a pair of panties, but find it highly exciting to think of their wives / girlfriends having sex with someone else.

Feminization comes in all shapes and sizes, too. Some want to truly be turned female. Some are actually making the transition in real life. Others just want to play with it; perhaps they dress up every now and then, and still others are like me with no transition or dressing desires, but still find the fantasy hot.

It's been a progression for me from feminization (always with the idea of giving up control (usually through hypnosis / brainwashing, etc.)) to male chastity. But if you're a guy and you want to give up control to a woman, there's nothing more significant than giving her control over your most protected, sacred, cherished part. Giving up your rights to touch yourself, pleasure yourself on your own schedule, having to abide by her will and desire is a maddening notion, which I find highly erotic.

Male Chastity seems to come in two varieties: with a chastity device and without. You'll find arguments for both. Having her place you in a device, lock it and take the key is a symbol. It's not that you couldn't get out of the contraption. In fact, my understanding is that slip outs are common and they must be frequently be removed for cleaning and re-fitting and because of rubbing and abrasions. Having never worn one, I couldn't say. But the true excitement is that she now holds the key to your pleasure.
The true excitement is that she is now the ONLY way you will EVER get any pleasure again, not because you feel like cranking one off in your morning shower, not because it's late at night and you've fallen into the same trap of accidentally ending up watching YouPorn again. No. Now, you are physically restrained. It's a bit like focused bondage. She has tied up your penis and rendered you helpless.

Being on the honor system has its arguments as well. After all, why should she need to lock you up? Why shouldn't her desire, her whim, her word be enough? If you have truly submitted your cock to her control, you should be dedicated enough to simply obey her desires.

The only other difference is this: Wearing a device makes for painful erections; not wearing a device leaves you free to have erections. Which one is worse? Which idea is more maddening? Feeling the pain and restriction, the constant reminder of how she controls you? Or feeling the utter temptation of your hard, proud cock and knowing you're forbidden to touch it?

Along with giving up control of your cock to your beloved comes the idea of tease and denial. In most tales of chastity, this is integral, and this is what I find most fascinating, because it really is about empowering a female to use her beauty and utter sexiness in the most manipulative way possible. Strangely, this is something that probably all women do at one or another time in their life, but it appears to be frowned upon. Be cute or weepy or flirty and you might get out of a speeding ticket, but do that with all the men in your life and you may get pegged as a "tease". And a "tease" at least in the world of women I grew up in (and perhaps the male world as well) was considered a bad thing.

So what are the effects of male chastity? Maybe there are none, but read a few blogs and you'll be exposed to the theory. The theory goes like this: Because you can no longer touch yourself and give yourself pleasure, and because all of your pleasure is now contingent upon her whim / desire, you'll find yourself focusing more on her and her happiness, and less on yourself.

As a man, this sounds like a magic pill, a Godsend. I have in most of my relationships been selfish and lazy, so it would be nice to have some kick in the pants in the right direction. It's not an easy thing to put her needs ahead of my own, but I'd like to do it. I can imagine being the guy I'd like to be with a lover, but it's not an easy thing to put into practice.

There are also plenty of books that demonstrate clearly how to turn a man into your dream submissive, how to manipulate him and yes, even condition him (drool) into finding sexual pleasure in even performing household chores.

Is it all true? Like anything, the reality of it is what you make of it, but the fantasy can be anything you like.
