#TGCaption - Finding a Higher Purpose (#transformation #revenge #dominatrix)

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.


My plans for this image when I first saw it were completely different, more of a dominatrix confronting her client, but something about that candle kept calling to me.

#TGCaption - What's in a Name? (#transformation #revenge #whore)

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.


This one's a tad dark, a little melancholy when you really think about it, but I like the message it sends. We're all human, and we all deserve basic human decency. Ignore that at your own peril . . .

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.

Please do be sure to check the price before downloading anything, as most freebies are limited time offers, and some are specific to certain regions.

                                        
  
Enjoy!

Judgement Day by Saline (#comics #transformation #femdom)

Returning to our theme of illustrated delights after a few weeks off, I am delighted to have the opportunity to feature some more exciting titles (and artists) from Amazing Transformation Comics.


Saline, one of the co-founders of the site, graces us once this morning, sharing the first chapter of her ongoing series, Judgement Day 

♥♥♥♥♥♥♥

Judgement Day is a best-selling 7-part series that Saline has been working on since 2014. With each chapter coming in at approximately 100 pages, it is an in-depth series that has the time and space to completely deliver on its premise. Set in 2025, it explores a future where outsourcing and automation have decimated the working class, creating a wide divide between the ultra wealthy and ultra poor, leading to the return of indentured servitude.

The story opens with an interesting prison-cell conversation that puts two very different spins on the concept, with one prisoner refusing to become a slave, preferring to remain poor and homeless, and the other looking forward to being taken care of, and trained for a new career. When Joe gets to court, the moral quandary gets even deeper, as his lawyer explains that while his creditors' terms may be unfair, he agreed to them, and they have the right to collect . . . and then we find out there are bribes behind the scenes, and that sets Joe up for a very interesting future.

Visually, the comic makes excellent use of color, backgrounds, textures, and more to set the scene. Joe's home is dark and sterile, devoid of color or decoration, and prison is very much the same. It is in the judge's chambers that we get our first real look at how the better half lives, with elaborate wooden furniture, books, and a fireplace, and it is in the re-education facility that we are first exposed to real colors, with the nurses dressed in hot pink, and the gel of the transform chamber a jade green.

The page in which Joe undergoes his transformation is a stunning example of Saline's work, three simple panels that show his physical progression, with the subliminal messaging flowing around him, and the lower panel explaining what is happening. The female domination aspects are even stronger, with the dominatrix Matron looking and acting the part, but what I loved most is that she does not simply force him to take on a feminine role against his will, but instead convinces him it is in his best interests. There is still a great deal of resistance and tension to the story, and Joe is pushed to some erotic extremes in an effort make him accept his place.

I talked a bit about the backgrounds and settings, but it is the characters that are Saline's strongest visual aspect. They are beautifully drawn, with realistic features, natural movements, and gorgeous clothing. The contrast between tomboyish Joe and the ultra-feminine looking teachers is almost shocking, reminding us of who he is and where he is meant to go. Makeup, hemlines, heels, fingernails, hair . . . they all look fantastic, perfectly imperfect, as they should be. For a first chapter, Judgement Day is a complete story, but it leaves a lot to be explore.

Take a walk on the wild side with Saline’s brand of feminizations!  Mistresses and masters abound in her stories putting the “ladies” through their respective passes, using any and all methods at their disposal, from extreme science to more conventional methods.

The Trans Generation by Ann Travers (#transgender #nonbinary)

The Trans Generation is one of those books that I found fascinating, but hard to read - which is a shame, because there is some great information in it, along with some valuable insights and wonderful observations.

Early reviewers called it passionate, smart, sensitive, compassionate, pragmatic, heartfelt, and honest, none of which I can disagree with. It is the "pleasure to read" accolades where I struggle. In choosing such a clinical style, presenting so much in what reads like case notes from a counseling session, Ann Travers makes it hard to connect with these kids and really identify with them. Their stories generate sympathy, and trigger some very dark emotions (and, in my case, memories), but at a distance. I struggled through it because those journeys are important to me, but I am not so sure the casual reader would stick with it.

What I found most fascinating about it was the dual focus on the lives and experiences of the children, and the barriers they face in society. Ann comes down hard on a largely broken system that does not know how to support these kids, and which often has no interest in doing so. We are exposed to a culture of racism and sexism, of homophobia and transphobia, that put these kids at a disadvantage from day one. All of that is important because, as the book argues, trans kids do not exist in a vacuum, and neither do their struggles. One issue feeds another, compounds another, and leads back into a cycle of barriers - which are dress-codes and bathrooms as often as they are rules and legislation.

A Sugar Something & Some Issues by Courtney Captisa & Claire Bear (#transgender #transformation)

Just in time for Father's Day, Courtney Captisa & Claire Bear offer up A Sugar Something & Some Issues, a two-story holiday bundle that mixes sweet with sexy and cute with kinky.

A Sugar Something is a wonderful little romance that starts with a date done wrong, complete with a bathroom escape, and a second date done boring, this time with a quiet pledge to never meet again. Preston is a nice guy but, at 39, it seems he may never get the chance to settle down. Then he meets Jenni.

Jenni is a quirky young woman, one of the most intriguing characters that Courtney and Claire have ever created. She is a sweet transsexual, a kinky cam-girl, and a cute . . . well, a cutie who loves having a sugar daddy, if you know what I mean. The dating aspect of the story is fun, and the sugar daddy aspect even better, but where their bedroom antics lead is the biggest surprise of all.

Some Issues is a simple story, built around an honest mistake, but it is in exploring the consequences of that mistake that Courtney and Claire have so much fun. All Sarah wanted to do was get her dad to clean up his act, and the house, but her hypnotic conditioning works a little too good . . . the trigger phase is a little too common . . . and she has left the door wide open for anyone to use it.

Much of the fun here is in seeing her dad act like a teenage girl, despite looking nothing like one, but while his situation is played for laughs, they are never at his expense. Sure, the story is embarrassing, but never humiliating. In fact, Sarah's friends come to like her dad's new side, so much so that there may be a little romance in the cards. I was honestly surprised by where this headed, expecting any number of things to go wrong, but you do not get any happier-ever-after.


[In the interest of full disclosure, while I had the great pleasure of providing editorial assistance on the manuscript, the actual writing and story creation is solely the work of the author]

Courtney Captisa has had a strong interest in transformation since childhood. In her early teens, she discovered several webpages such as Fictionmania. She enjoys writing clean stories.

Futanari Moans Release Day Events

Good morning, all, and a very happy Monday to you!

As you are no doubt aware, today is release day for Futanari Moans and the Suckers’ Cure, the second (standalone) adventure for my busty, well-hung, intrepid explorer. You can check out the cover blurb below.


To help celebrate its release, the wonderful Oleander Plume has had a few kinds words to say over at Poisoned Pen Dirty Mind. To make things extra exciting, I have shared an exclusive excerpt with here, available only on her blog!


Oh, and to mark my status as the newest Sister in Smut, the gang is hosting a Happy Book Birthday. Stop by and read a bit about my creative process, how my imagination works, and what ultimately led to this Futanari Moans story jumping the queue ahead of what I had planned as the second book.

♥♥♥♥♥♥♥

Futanari Moans and the Suckers’ Cure
by Sally Bend

Futanari Moans, amateur archaeologist and professional tomb raider, has unearthed her share of ancient treasures. With her only weapon the swollen, dripping appendage strapped to her thigh, Moans journeys across the Middle East, dodging traps, scarabs, and undead creatures, while battling foes from home and abroad.

The second-worst thing about having a thirty-five-hundred-year-old mummy for a lover was that the dust got everywhere. The worst thing about it? Well, it turns out that the supernatural drought of a murdered Queen’s cursed sarcophagus is contagious.
Her search for a cure takes her to the cliffs of the Aegean Sea, where she throws herself to the waves, in search of an ancient leviathan of the deep, a tentacled god of the deepest waters. She comes as both a friend and a lover, offering it pleasures not tasted in centuries, but she does not expect it to be quite so . . . well, big.

Packed with 7,000 words of pulp futa adventure, complete with a taboo side of monster erotica, this standalone Futanari Moans adventure is superbly silly, and scandalously sexy! Perfect for fans of her first adventure, or those just discovering her.

#TGCaption - No First Moves (#futa #seduction #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.


To help celebrate the release of my latest book (you still have time to take advantage of the pre-order and free promo), I wanted to explore some futanari themes this weekend. Both captions came easy, the pictures telling a story all on their own. 

Yesterday I played with the shadows, but today I wanted to take advantage of broad daylight.
