This article is an expansion of an earlier post on Daddy’s Dollhouse.
Because it is an under-served niche in size fantasy, I’ve recently been combing through my size smut collection to find M/f content to post on Daddy’s Dollhouse. It’s really driven home something that I’ve long been aware of but could always use revisiting, especially given the transient nature of the size “community.” I want to talk about the role of the (straight) male gaze in size porn.
Size porn is like any other kind of porn in that it contains the presumption that its audience is mainly straight men. The primary consequence of this is that the vast majority of imagery (and text) focuses on women, usually with an idealized body type. In M/f smut, this means a lot of handheld naked cuties. A lot.
The good news is that this is changing, although perhaps not as fast as one might like. The internet is old enough now that a couple of generations (of all genders and orientations) have grown up with ready access to porn and thus have had the opportunity to develop their own tastes in porn and even start to demand and create alternatives.Continue reading “Sex Objects”
It seems like just yesterday a platform that had hosted size shenanigans suddenly became much less welcoming to everyone who had come to rely on it. Now, with a change of ownership looming, #SizeTwitter is asking itself where they might decamp to if it became necessary.
I don’t have any advice other than that the Pornocalypse will continue to make hosting porn unfriendly to advertisers, which in turn will make it difficult for web investors to make money from sites that don’t have content moderation. So far, Twitter hasn’t made Google or Facebook money, and Musk doesn’t seem like the kind of guy to pay 38% over market value for something without hope of making a profit.
In any event, I would like to take this occasion to remind everyone that I continue to maintain and update the Where To Find Everyone page that I set up for Tumblwintr. Please feel free to give me your forwarding information as you determine next steps.
I don’t really know what a “tier list” is, but Moly made one for Size folks, and I haven’t done something like this in a while.
I never met Larry Philby, never communicated with him, never really saw much of his art. What I know of him is solely due to SizeCon. He figured largely in many after-action reports, a generous spirit full of stories that made everyone feel accepted. It seems he found his own personal size community well before the internet made it much easier, which still gobsmacks me to think about. Seeing photos of him sharing his art made me chagrined that I ever thought a size get-together was beneath me.
Seize your joys while you can.
Last year, Taedis compiled twenty-eight size fantasy stories into a paperback volume and gave it away at SizeCon2020. She’s done it again, thirty-five contributors this time (including vintage size fantasists like Swift and Baudelaire), and you can get a free PDF here and a paperback copy here. Check her blog to learn about Volume 3.
Like twin hemispheres hovering over the size community, Undersquid and Aborigen have clenched together to promote #ButtCrushDays. After observing that there is a four-day gape between the non-sizey holidays National Ass Day (17 Oct) and International Ass Day (20 Oct), they determined that size fantasists should devote a rump week to celebrating the glory of butts giant and tiny.
Y’all can observe this occasion however you like, but in my house we call it ButtHugDays. Put me in that velvet pinch and hold me tight.
Why do we share our size fantasies with others, and why do we care what others enjoy in size fantasy? I suppose everything on this blog is an attempt to answer one or both of these questions, but a couple of recent posts have me looking at them with renewed urgency. Aborigen asked himself what he still hopes to achieve with his size writing, and in one of those recurring “What would you really do?” threads on the Shrunken Women Board Azureeyes talked about the importance of hearing about the real people behind the fantasy. I’ve been watching the online size scene for 25 years and an active participant for almost a decade and I still don’t know exactly why I keep returning to it.Continue reading “What’s It To You?”
This tweet provoked an illuminating discussion about how social media like Tumblr and Twitter ultimately fragment communities more than they unify them. Those platforms aren’t without their benefits, but I agree that they make it very difficult either to preserve conversations or to archive works and commentary. This is a major reason why I prefer blogs and fora like Daddy’s Dollhouse.
