A Second Life sim owner who will remain nameless got a major attack of dickishness after seeing the Siren7 promo video and threw a hissy fit and threatened to report me to the Second Life authorities if I didn't take my video down. Most people on Second Life are reasonable and cool about most things, it's just a game, but every so often, you encounter an ass. I'm re-editing with other scenes not featuring his or her sim. Be back up in a day or so.
I made the mistake of linking to this blog when filling out my "About" section on my Google+ Account page and Google immediately realized I was an EBBUL PORNOGRAPHER and killed my account deader than Chris Christie's chances of becoming president. Or something. (Yeah, that was a mistake, coulda been smarter about that, but it still rankles because damn, people, sex is GOOD. It's VIOLENCE that's evil.)
I've written that I will happily disable the link because it's not really important to me to link my adult blog with my Google+ account, but I have no idea how long that will take or if it will happen. Frankly, I was a little surprised that my blog was still accessible.
In the meantime, I've redone my Google account and built a new Youtube Channel to get the link back live. Pain in the ass, but when elephants step on you, your choices are few. I'm still pissed at Google though. Look, Google, if your corporate mantra is DON'T BE EVIL, then DON'T BE EVIL! Don't classify everyone's interest in sex as EVVUL PORN!!!!!
I'm doing a major rewrite of an earlier novel, "Siren7," taking full advantage of Second Life as a way of developing the relationship between Larry and Kim. I'm going to do some marketing of the story in advance this time, using Second Life videos. This is just a one-minute video, but it took a LOT of work to finish. Siren7 might get made into a movie, eventually, who knows? I'm doing the rewrite and the videos simultaneously, let's see what happens.
The one think I can assure you of, this will NOT be the next Fifty Shades of Grey. It's an erotic romance like Fifty Shades of Grey, sure. But this is much more of thriller than Fifty Shades of Grey was, though in this particular promo, I work more on the romance aspect. Plus, the sex is more explicit, with much more emphasis on the bondage and submission aspects than in Fifty Shades of Grey, which, while it certainly features submission and dominance, wasn't fully developed in terms of bondage, though there WAS plenty of bondage.
Siren7 also plays with the willing slave girl fantasy a lot more than Fifty Shades of Grey ever did, and well ... more intelligently. Kim, the protagonist, enjoys bondage and submission, and so does her lover Larry and so does the evil publisher who blackmails her into doing a lot things she ordinarily would have enjoyed doing, in a consensual relationship.
I'm very pleased with the way this video came out. Maybe all those Second Life videos I've worked on already were not wasted.
Valkyrie Forest Bay
Sylvan Grove (60 Linden Rentals)
Any or all of the sims listed here could change or disappear at any moment, I have no control over that. But do check them out, they're all interesting and excellent places to visit. The one sim you can't visit is the one I used for some of the bedroom scenes, it's a skybox rental that goes for 60 Lindens a week (about $1.25 a week US currency) but the link to Sylvan Grove goes to the rental office where you can rent a skybox just like it. Also, I'm pretty sure the Valkyrie Forest Bay sim has changed since I filmed there.

A new article on Bondagerotica: Arrow-Harmony Bondage vs. Youtube Bondage looks at images from an old Arrow-Harmony video catalog (arrow-Harmony videos are currently available from Close-Up Concepts here) and images seen on Youtube videos, and finds that they are not so different from one another. What does this imply about the nature of porn? Check out the article and see!

While converting my library of old VHS tapes to DVD format, I came across a film I did not know I had taped, Girls of Cell Block F, a XXX film. (There is a fair amount of stuff in my video collection that I did not know I had taped, most of it is garbage. Some, or as my wife puts it, "almost all") of the stuff I KNOW I taped is garbage, too. But at least I knew I had it!)
Remember the old Jolly Roper department, "The No Bondage Zone", filled with films that by all rights SHOULD have had bondage but had little or none? Well, The Women of Cell Block F (I'm not calling it The Girls of Cell Block F, as it's not a juvenile prison) goes the inhabitants of "The No-Bondage Zone" one better. Its title clearly indicates that it should be a women in prison movie, but it lacks one of the two things that are essential to a women in prison film ... a prison! (The other, of course, is women, which the movie DOES have ... see above.)
Frankly, I'm pretty sure the movie is the way it is because it's a budgie job.
How did they manage that? And what's a budgie job? (You Monty Python fans might be able to guess.) Read the review here and learn all, as well as seeing images from VHS tapes copied so long ago that the video smearing renders some XXX-rated scenes into a soft R rating.
My video collection is full of interesting stuff, like this vidcap of the widest, raunchiest spreadeagle bondage in non-premium cable television -- it's from an episode of the Howard Stern Show that used to run on the E! Network, featuring Jaqi, a professional tickler of women. Image source: vidcap from the Howard Stern show.
