Pinned toot

I wanna learn about your Kink 

Reply to this post with a kink you're into. I want to hear all the weird details about it, and why you're into it.

This offer is evergreen. I don't care if this toot is 10 years old, I always love learning about what delightfully weird stuff people are into.

Of all the erotic microfiction I've written, I think "A Firm Hand" might be my favorite. 

Melissa acting out and getting hit would happen pretty frequently as the story gets started. It's something the protag has latched onto that he understands about the dynamic Melissa wants.

But it's a shallow understanding. Melissa doesn't want to get hit, she wants to *be disciplined.* She wants him to fix her—which she doesn't explain, and which he can't do in the way that she wants. As a result, the repetition of talk-shit:get-hit gets boring for her. She acts out in a particularly big way. Robs a store, or punches a rando on the street.

This would probably be the thing their big fight is about. The thing that ends with her promising to be demure, and him starting to understand what her damage is, and what he needs to bring to the relationship if it's going to work. The real resolution of the fight is getting her to say what she wants explicitly.

I'm gonna keep going so long as I keep having fun. Sorry if I'm flooding the feed. :P

So, roadtrip scene 1: protag failed to consider that Melissa is stuck in her work clothes. She points this out at a time when he could easily swing by her place for her to get something, but that would mean looking like he wasn't 100% in control. He thinks he'd lose face, so he pretends it was his plan all along.

They talk a bit. This is the first chance he has to ask her what her deal is, why she wants this. She gives him a bullshit answer.

A good ways into the trip they stop at some store and he picks out clothes for her. It is an expense he didn't plan on, but it's fun to dress her. He probably puts her in clothes that don't really suit her. Perhaps he insist on one particular item she will whine about through the narrative, and which he'll instruct her to discard at the turning point.

I think they have an argument, and then "make up" in a way that neither of them are happy with. Melissa vowing to be a demure and obedient sub who never causes any trouble, or something similar. She hates the idea, he knows she hates the idea and hates having put her in a position to agree to it.

The shitty resolution to the argument gets reexamined at the destination. The two then turn around both literally and figuratively, because subtlety is for losers. This probably happens in a melodramatic way. Maybe protag is unable to get it up for Melissa when she's being demure. I dunno, a little melodrama helps me avoid my tendency towards talking heads.

The trip back would be different sexy encounters, but healthier. The foundations of good brat/Dad relationship. Maybe it ends with Melissa wanting to cohabitate (a bad decision after 2 days together), and protag says no. Sets a boundary.

So there'd be the initial scenes of protag and Melissa interacting at work where she acts like an asshole, but only because she wants him and is too emotionally stunted to approach him properly.

The scene depicted in the story would be the inciting incident. The rules of the world have changed, and now the protag must adapt.

He conceives the road trip idea as a way to test Melissa / establish dominance.

Between home & destination they'd need to have sexy experiences which open up each character's flaws. First it's fun, but they're hurting each other in ways they don't see, and heading towards an emotional nadir they can't yet understand.

They hit that nadir before getting to the end of the trip. The nadir is *not* either of them wanting to end their budding relationship. Too melodramatic.

Perhaps protag gets it into his head that he needs to throw Melissa off balance, so he decides to take her on a road trip without telling her why or where.

He's doing the right thing (taking charge) for the wrong reason (conceiving of a D/s relationship as a competition for power, because...well that's kinda how it was introduced to him.) Ultimately when they reach whatever arbitrary destination he picked it would be an anticlimax, and perhaps a turning point where the two stop fucking up, and start making better choices.

Perhaps the whole reason Melissa sought him out is because she recognizes that she makes a lot of bad choices, and wants to make less of them.

Amusingly enough I've always hated road trip stories, but this idea vibes with me for some reason.

I have a particular fondness for stories where the sub initiates the relationship. Draws some unsuspecting partner into dominating them. This one in particular feels like it could be expanded into a more well rounded narrative.

I don't have time to do it, but it's fun to imagine the unnoticed bratting which built to this scene. It's even more fun to imagine what comes after it. Perhaps the protagonist spends the next few hours sorting through his feelings, doing some reading, making plans. He texts Melissa cryptic instructions when her shift ends.

He'd probably stumble through his role quite a bit. This isn't the sort of relationship he's spent years fantasizing about. Melissa mocks him, and the one thing he's definitely learned is that she mocks him when she wants to get hit.

For some reason I think a road trip might be a good vehicle for the story.

I had a dream last night that there was a lady who did these porn videos that all began with her telling the setup for a joke direct to camera. Then she'd do some sex act for a bit, and the punchline for the joke would be part of the sex act.

It was really cheesy and charming. Ex. she'd start a video by saying something like "What do you you say when your little pet birds are moving too slowly?"

Then she'd fuck a guy.

Then at the end she'd turn to camera and say "Come on, my titties!" right before he did.

Taboos are most interestingly transgressed when it is done obliquely.

You can only get limited mileage out of recklessly smashing a taboo. The deluge of mediocre "EVERYONE IN THIS FAMILY IS HOT AND HEY ALL DO INCEST ON EACH OTHER" porn demonstrates that pretty clearly.

A character trying to have a normal phone conversation with their parent while having sex is a much more interesting way to explore the same taboo, and gives room for escalation.

Erotica and action stories share a tension between spectacle and narrative.

Action stories are about the punchy-punchy-boom-boom scenes.

Erotica is about the fucky-fucky-bang-bang scenes.

But both rely on some kind of overarching story to justify their spectacles. To make people care about the situations which those spectacles resolve.

They have to thread a delicate needle between having enough compelling story to pull the reader in, but not so much that the reader starts to wonder where all the spectacle is.

Very early in my writing career I made a pledge not to spend time writing reviews. They are tempting to write, but ultimately I don't think they're a good use of time.

But bad erotica tempts me.

I'm reading a popular manwha right now called "Silent War" or something. TL;DR it's a revenge story where a nerd gets swol, and takes revenge on his highschool bully by seducing all his women away from him. The art is pretty good, and there are the seeds of so many good ideas in here, but it just keeps falling flat.

Not to speculate too wildly about another artist, but it seems as though the women in the story aren't being used as tools because it is kinky to degrade them in that way. They're being used as tools because that seems to be the only way the author can conceive of them.

And like...I get it. Misogyny is my kink too. But a misogyny kink without feminist analysis is just vanilla porn.

My #1 motivator for writing erotica is reading erotica that has the seed of a good idea, but terrible execution.

Aw man, my old tumblr has been deleted. I had not yet pulled all my old stories off of there, so that's years of writing gone.

If you aren't calling your sluts "hoydon," then like...what are you even doing?

A beekeeper friend is telling me about how much she enjoys the "menacing sound" of a charged electrostim toy.

And now I'm pretty sure she wants to fuck her bees.

While watching TV the other night, my partner seemed particularly intrigued by a scene with a little mild forced exhibitionism in it. I asked her if it's something she might like to try sometime.

"Oh no way." she said "I'm more of a 'kept in the basement where no one will ever see her again' kinda gal."

boost my nudes, my dudes.
