My review of Short Shrift, an F/m story by Aborigen. Links to the story at the bottom.
This was an excellent read and a good wank. It’s an extended treatment of a single encounter that one might expect to end much more abruptly and gruesomely. A number of distinct sexual activities are depicted in compelling detail, and Aborigen makes the reader feel every secretion and clench. Aside from the variations, what keeps the physical descriptions from becoming tedious is the frequent interweaving of the two characters’ inner narratives. This is key, of course; we care about the smut because we care about the characters, and Aborigen takes the time to establish them for us.
The introductory perspective is that of Candice, the instructor of an exercise group. She gives us our first look at the two main characters (in whose perspectives we will spend the rest of the story), and she is also important in that she is the only knowing agent of the size change that makes the plot possible. I actually would have liked more foreshadowing of this, as it otherwise seems too out-of-the-blue, particularly for the non-fetishist reader.
Fortunately, both Melanie the novice exercise student and Rickey the misogynist predator are sufficiently recognizable and well-developed that when the size change occurs their responses ground it in realism. Crucially, neither Melanie nor Rickey react predictably or implausibly to the bizarre circumstances they find themselves in. We get our fetish itches scratched, not because either Melanie or Rickey seek them out, but because they honestly explore who we already know them to be.
Aborigen is in fine form here, with sophisticated streams of consciousness and wicked observations. Most gratifyingly, he is unsparing in both sensual detail and emotional depth. I don’t identify with either Melanie or Rickey, but I’ve inhabited both of them, separately, during one my most obsessing fetish scenarios. An abiding delight.
Before the Internet revealed all of us to each other and encouraged us to make size content by size pervs for size pervs, we had to mentally “repurpose” mainstream size content. Such sources were usually sci-fi or horror or, tediously often, children’s entertainment. Here follows my ribald extrapolation from The 3 Worlds of Gulliver, which I imagined took place after Gulliver cures the Queen but before his witch trial.
Last year, Taedis compiled twenty-eight size fantasy stories into a paperback volume and gave it away at SizeCon2020. She’s doing it again, and she’s taking submissions at the moment. Read here to learn more.
Benjithedreamer has another meaty interview, this time with Jitensha. She goes into her many years of experience in size fantasy, as well as the origins and future of SizeCon and Daddy’s Dollhouse. I highly recommend listening to these reflections by a true tiny heroine of the size community.
This one is pure horror. No sexytimes, just woman-kaiju vore. Inspired by Nyx and Aphrodite.
Cadmus was brought back to consciousness by the change in the rhythm of waves slapping the ship’s hull. For days he had been relying on the steady cadence to stave off both nausea and nightmares. The latter had provoked the crew to confine him to the bilge, and his screaming only abated when the boatswain had given him the last of his opium stash.
He could hear the crew moving to their stations and re-rigging the sails. Lots of orders were shouted as the pilot began negotiating a delicate course. We’re making port, thought Cadmus. What should have been a relief was instead a wave of dread washing over him. It seemed safer at sea, he thought.
One of the reasons that Jitensha was motivated to create Daddy’s Dollhouse was that, in her experience, some M/f fans were inhibited from expressing their darker fantasies, more so than fans of other size fantasy configurations. One of her first posts was an invitation for everyone to share the darker stuff that gets them going. It has been supremely gratifying to read and contribute to this thread.
Be warned: The discussion contains fatal outcomes, watersports, scat, cruelty, and of course nonconsensual encounters. Please read and comply with the forum rules.
Jitensha has done it again! She saw an unaddressed need in the size community and up and did something about it. She wanted a space where M/f desires were not merely tolerated but rather centered and celebrated, so she and her tech-giant husband Sergio designed, configured, and launched Daddy’s Dollhouse, a size forum for shrunken women, giant men, and size shenanigans ranging from gentle companionship to refined cruelty.
Jitensha has compiled a fulsome mission statement and set of guidelines, which I encourage everyone to read even if they don’t plan to frequent the forum, as they are the result of years of experience and reflection on the size community. As always when entering a new social space, listen to everyone else before making assumptions, judgments, or complaints.
I just made my account, and I expect to be a regular visitor and participant. See you there!
