TGCaption - Paying His Debts (creampie pegging brothel)

TG Captions are one of my favorite forms of storytelling. There is no narrative fluff, no extraneous details, just the hook, the twist, and the climax.

I was looking for an image for a completely different caption - something just as twisted, but a lot more fun and consensually kinky - but this led me down a rabbit hole of perversion and punishment. Personally, I think he got off easy but one person's fetish is another's phobia . . .

TGCaption - A Good Sport Gets Drafted (feminization bisexual brothel)

TG Captions are one of my favorite forms of storytelling. There is no narrative fluff, no extraneous details, just the hook, the twist, and the climax.

I knew exactly what this one was going to be about. I knew who he was, why he was going to the brothel, and what the challenge would be. I even knew he'd become more than just a fun bit of eye candy, but the sports puns came right out of left field.

Freebie Fetish Friday - Putting the TG in TGIF!

Well, if it's Friday, then it must be time to bend our way into the weekend with Freebie Fetish Friday.

Every Friday I search through the weekend's free titles on Amazon, looking for those that might be of interest to similarly bent readers, fans, and lovers. Even if you don't have a Kindle, you can still download the titles through one of Amazon's free reading applications, or covert it with Calibre to load onto a Kobo, iPad, or anything else.

Dark Rainbow edited by Andrew Robertson (#queer #horror)

Released just before Halloween this year, Dark Rainbow is an Anthology of Queer Erotic Horror edited Andrew Robertson is absolutely fantastic. Going into a collection like this, I usually hope to find a few really good stories, and resign myself to skimming over a few, but this was a solid, perfectly orchestrated collection of erotic horror that bleeds all the colors of the queer rainbow.

The stories that really stood out for me . . . the ones that made me stop, shake my head, and walk away for a moment . . . were as follows:

Pip and Estella by Valerie Alexander is a weird Southern Gothic take on Great Expectations that was full of dark and dirty lesbian exploration, and which built slowly to a series of chilling climaxes.

Goldilocks and her Undead Bear by Julianne Snow is my first favorite of the collection, the story of a fierce drag queen, her three gay bears, and a zombie outbreak. The battle at the club was fantastic, and that final line . . . it still makes me smile every time I think of it.

Think of Me by Lindsay King-Miller is the story that absolutely blew me away, a deeply moving tale that explores the pain of suicide, the legacy we leave behind, and how even our best efforts to make amends can lead to some very dark acts. You need to read this. Stunningly powerful.

Odd Man Out by Derek Clendening is a kind of a guilty pleasure, a story about horrible acts of violence and betrayal, but defined by twists that I thoroughly enjoyed.

His Type by Sèphera Girón is a slow-burning story, one that takes a while to reveal it secrets, to tear away its erotic skin to reveal the horror beneath it, but once its demons break through it just keeps getting darker, weirder, and more viscerally intense.

The Life Model by Jim Towns is a love story with supernatural elements, but even if I would be hard-pressed to define as horror, I absolutely loved the budding relationship between an introverted nude model and a shy painter. Just beautiful.

The Dark Gem by Lisi Damette is a story that was just full of surprises, transforming both an abused woman and her husband through witchcraft at a strange brothel. It is darkly suggestive, but full of images that linger long after you are done reading.

Broken Lines of Salt and Flesh by Robert E. Furey is another story of witchcraft and betrayal, marked by a wonderful bit of mystical seduction, an intensely exciting transformation, and the promise of something truly decadent. This is a story that is all in the details, and I loved it.

The Grave of Lilith by Harry F. Rey is a story I was hesitant about at first, but which was entirely redeemed by the message in its final paragraph. It is a weird story, as much about faith and belief as love and lust, built around a terrifying archaeological exploration of a biblical site, with . . . well, I refuse to spoil it, but I loved the final bit about those who deserve to die.

I deliberately avoided saying too much about the queer pairings in each story, but I was pleasantly surprised to find so much transgender content here, and even if it is more gay than lesbian, I still think Andrew Robertson did a wonderful job of paying respect to the entire queer spectrum of the Dark Rainbow.

Soldier On by N.J. Lysk (#genderfluid #mpreg #gay)

Wow. This was dark . . . extraordinarily dark . . . but also utterly fascinating. I have a hard time classifying Soldier On as erotica, since so much of the story involves non-consensual sexual abuse, and yet I cannot deny that aspects of it are erotic.

N.J. Lysk walks a very fine line here, but keeps the story from being cruelly exploitative by focusing on Seeran's experience, and making his struggle the focus. As much as part of me wanted the story to turn, I realize that would have been a complete and utter betrayal of the situation.

The story opens with a young solider accepting defeat which, in this world, means submitting to the enemy's sexual needs. There are so many conflicting emotions in the scene, and so many little details so casually dropped into the narrative, you need to read it multiple times to properly appreciate it. It is not until the dungeon scene that follows, however, that we really begin to understand the world in which we find ourselves.

What is that world, and why is it so fascinating? Well, it is a world in which young men can be changed by the taking of a man's seed, allowing them to be naturally impregnated. The biology of it all intrigues me, as does the social aspect - for, once changed, they are forced by society to take on feminine roles, wearing dresses and becoming wives. There is so much to the world I would love to know more about, so many details my imagination is hungry to understand, but what is here . . .  well, it excites me in a way mpreg stories usually do not.

Seeran's story is dark and full of pain, yet marked by fleeting moments of reluctant pleasure. This is not your typical erotic fantasy, neither wish-fulfillment nor cautionary tale. It is a sexually explicit drama about the defeat and the changing of one young man, with a brief exploration of what that means for his future. I look forward to seeing what Lysk does next with The Will of Heaven.

About N.J. Lysk: N.J. Lysk--compulsive reader of all things queer, allergic to silver, and meat eater extraordinaire--decided to write so the werewolves wouldn't eat her brain (metaphorically, they aren't zombies!). 

With a genuine allergy to silver, a preference for werewolves was always a given, but it wasn't until the wonderful world of alphas and omegas that inspiration struck.

N.J. likes British English, Earl grey tea, werewolves, polyamory, hockey, social commentary, and power dynamics (ok, and a lot of sex! :p). She can't stand misused homophones, predictable plots, gender binaries and stereotypes. Also, the Oxford comma.


Transforming Love: Express Service by Rex Haltier (#transgender #erotica)

You know what they say about not judging a book by its cover? Well, this is definitely one of those cases. To look its cover and read its blurb/preview, which run together into one poorly formatted mess, Transforming Love: Express Service: Part One does not really look like much, and yet it intrigued me. I decided to give it a read last night, and Rex Haltier very quickly impressed me with strength of his storytelling.

This is a beautifully written book, full of luscious imagery and wonderful word choices. The cover may look amateurish, but the writing is definitely professional. The pacing of the story was just about perfect, drawing the reader in, teasing the fantasy, and drawing out the voyeuristic ride. Had Mike been written differently, this could have been a creepy read, but his own self-awareness of the situation, his embarrassment over watching, and his efforts to look away make it something exciting and sensual instead.

It takes a long time for the story to reach its peak, but once Mike and Monica get to talking - once her secret is revealed - it becomes something worth waiting for. Told tenderly and respectfully, less of a trap/surprise story and more of a sexual revelation, I loved the eagerness with which Mike pleases his new lover, the awkwardness of their discreet encounter in the back of the bus, and the promise of more to come. All in all, an entirely rewarding and delightful book.

I will definitely be continuing to Part Two (Mike and Monica continue their loving at home) and Part Three (Mike and Monica and Andrea spend a morning making love and preparing for their upcoming nuptials).

Cuckold Husbands Service the Bulls by Raven Merlot & J.D. Cuckold Husband (#cuckold #bisexual #femdom)

From a lifestyle perspective, I admire the female empowerment aspect of cuckolding, the idea that a woman deserves to take a lover, and that her husband owes it to her to service her needs and her desires. From a fantasy perspective, I love the exploration of how a husband's sexuality might be altered by the chastity, submission, and emasculation aspects of cuckolding, especially when it leads to forced or coerced bisexuality.

That is why stories like the Cuckold Husbands Service the Bulls series by Raven Merlot & J.D. Cuckold Husband intrigue and excite me so much - not just paying lip service (pun intended) to the bisexuality, but focusing on it.

The Hole Thing, the first Cuckold Husbands Service the Bulls story, is the story of a husband who suffers from erectile dysfunction, but is too embarrassed to seek help from a small-town doctor. Instead, he suffers his wife taking a series of lovers, dressing as a cheap whore and talking dirtier than she ever would with Will.

Where things get interesting is when Will tries to sleep through the excitement, lying in bed beside his wife and her lover, but finds himself growing hard. "Hey, take over for me, okay?" is such a simple request, but a pivotal one. Within moments he finds himself taking Ramon into his mouth, no argument, no fighting, no pressure . . . it just happens.

The story does get a tad crazy in the final chapter, involving a little public exhibition and gloryhole fluffing, but it maintains the right attitude of bewildered excitement that makes this so much fun.

Sorry Honey, You're Gay Now Part One is a very different from the first Cuckold Husbands Service the Bulls story, involving a husband who has let himself go and a wife who has chosen to fulfill her own desires since he has lost the ability to do it for her. It is the story of a marriage that is already over from a romantic and intimacy standpoint, but which Simon remains trapped in because he cannot afford to leave.

The cuckolding here his darker and crueler, designed as much to please Mary-Ann as to embarrass and humiliate Simon. When she invites him to join in their love making, he is eager to jump at the chance, but quickly finds out his role is not to be what he expected . . . and that excites him in ways he fears to face. His wife and his lover not only force him to orally please Jesse, but make him beg for it, verbally worship it, and accept his new role as their girl.

While this second story strays further into humiliation and degradation than I prefer, there is enough doubt and uncertainty on Simon's part to make it interesting, and the realization of his role is extraordinarily arousing.

Sorry Honey, You're Gay Now Part Two, the third Cuckold Husbands Service the Bulls story, picks up immediately after the last one, and returns a little physical intimacy to the marriage of Simon and Mary-Ann. I really liked that most of this story was focused on husband and wife, exploring the consequences of forcing Simon into being an active participant in his own cuckolding.

This is a story that is heavy on female domination, emasculation, and forced feminization. There is plenty of verbal chastisement, physical punishment, and (most importantly) rewards for being a good girl. It is exciting, and it shows how the role of a cuckold can be evolved and transformed as much through positive reinforcement as humiliation and degradation. Simon retains some of the doubt and uncertainty that marked their first story together, but is settling into his role nicely.

As readers are likely hoping, this story explores more intimate penetrations for the first time, but only after properly preparing Simon/Simone for the taking of her virginity. It is a wonderful scene, full of the little touches that make for a very happy ending.

As much fun as these three stories are, they are only half the story. You can continue reading, one story at a time, or treat yourself to the Cuckold Husbands Service the Bulls: 7 Story MMF First Time Gay Bedtime Bundle for enjoy a long and rewarding night of reading.

About Raven Merlot: I write about cuckolding, kink, spanking, and whatever else excites me. I love connecting with my readers and try to respond to everyone. My non-writing time is spent with my husband and son and being a part-time couples therapist. I never write about my patients but I do occasionally get inspired by them.

My books aren't for everyone and I don't take that personally. Read for yourself to find out! You can sign up for my e-mail list at I frequently give away books for free and want you to know how to get them.

#TGCaption - Being the Girl (#crossdressing #bdsm #lesbian)

TG Captions are one of my favorite forms of storytelling. There is no narrative fluff, no extraneous details, just the hook, the twist, and the climax.

Originally, I thought this was a 'caught' type of moment, with a wife spying on her husband, but then I realized how much better it would be to look ahead, and I was absolutely delighted by the unexpected twist it revealed.
