The Balls that Launched a Thousand Stories . . .

Or, at least two stories.

So, I was asked, once, where I came up with the idea for the Jill series. Here it is.

I can't find the pics of this person that show his face, but what I thought about him was Tony's history - a blond guy who'd been in the Marines, and who was tough but also yielding.

For me, there's just something about how these balls are hanging there. As if they're just resting up before Jill runs in and beats the hell out of them.

At any rate, I was extremely impressed by this picture, and it's one of those quirky things about life - how random finds can be the impetus for interesting works of creativity.

Updates . . .

I'm working on a new story, Amy's Three Dads. It's coming along nicely, and it's essentially my twisted version of "Three Men and a Little Lady." Or, at least that's what comes to mind when I think about the scenario. I'll post it when its ready, prob on the EuA with a link from this site.

I also have a needle based story in a nascent stage. Hope someone out there likes needles-to-the-nuts.

"Of course sir. Would you prefer the vice? Or the knife?"

So, I've been meaning for a long time to discuss what I consider to be the two main avenues of revenge on the organs we call testicles. The first is cutting, the second busting. Most of the stories I've seen fall into one or both categories, and I'd like to open up a discussion about the two avenues.

Personally, and as anyone knows who reads my stories, I prefer busting, above all. I like the intensity, the drama, the tension filled build-up to the main event - popping one or more testicles.

However, as I explored in Experiments II, cutting can be sexy too, as long as it's done with care. What I found in writing the end scene was - if I turned the cutting part into explicit torture, instead of just lopping things off and making it quick, it simply became a more terminal form of testicle torture, ala BandyMandy's The Torturers Apprentice series

And for me, this brings the issue I have with cutting stories - they're usally too short and move to the punch-line too quickly. Most of them are . . . . hospital, threat of castration, local anethstesia (where's the fun in that), snip, and done. Erm. But where's my story? Where's the build-up where the buster is enjoying the pain their inflicting, and the bustee savoring the last precious minutes of his manhood?

However, most of the EuA stories are, in fact, cutting stories, and most of them are perforce short. So, if anyone out there is a fan of the pure cutting oevre, please let me know what psychological sweet spots it hits, and what the cutting vs busting themes do or don't do for you.

Here's an EuA author I saw a long time ago, and thanx to some help on the boards, was able to find again. Auntie June is a great story, and so is More Crazy Frat Parties (even though it's rather short).

Taking a short break from writing. Have some ideas I can develop when the mood strikes.

Update - what am I doing with my time

So other than endless work, my minimal free time is now spent "world building". This is the process by which fantasy and sci-fi w...
