To continue my (our?) discussion of a Size Aesthetic, I want to talk about how authors imagine their readership and how readers encounter narratives. Specifically, how much do authors predetermine “the” perspective of a story and how much do readers accept, reject, or negotiate those determinations. I also want to discuss the asymmetric nature of dom/sub fantasies and how much consideration we give to authors/readers “on the other end of” such fantasies. Finally, I want to interrogate how the tropes and expectations of size fantasy culture play into (and against) these considerations.Continue reading “Projection, Asymmetry, and Reciprocity in Size Fantasy”
This post started out as a response to an inquiry in the new Violent Shrunken Women forum* on the Shrunken Women Board, but I got sufficiently broad in my discussion of size fantasy and toilet stuff that I decided to write a more comprehensive post. Because I discuss scat, watersports, and fatal outcomes, it is going under the fold.
* There used to be a separate Violent Shrunken Women Board that has recently gone defunct, and the Shrunken Women Board has created a couple of subforums for size content that features cruelty, humiliation, and other unpleasant outcomes. I am not in a position to recount the history of why fans of more gruesome tiny woman scenarios felt they had to create their own site separate from (the predecessors of) the Shrunken Women Board, but it remains an active controversy. Jitensha, of course, has some opinions.Continue reading “Size Fantasy in the Toilet”
(These are also what tinies look like.)
One of my abiding favorite size fantasy tropes is the “awakening” of size-differential desires in people who hadn’t previously given the notion any thought. I remain of the opinion that size fantasy is a relatively easy kink for normies to appreciate or at least dabble in, and there have been enough positive reports to make one optimistic about how revealing one’s size fantasies to one’s intimate partner will be received.
ETA: Jitensha has posted a status update on DA that discusses, among other things, being traumatized by the toxic entitlement that some people in the size community have.
EATA: Can’t help thinking this is related:
So the generous and industrious people behind SizeCon have resolved to organize a one-day online event, called SizeCon Micro. This seems obvious in light of recent events, but I’m nevertheless delighted that this is happening. Not many details yet, but they’re targeting this Summer or Fall.
They’ve also composed a survey to track the changing contours of how we each personally experience size fantasy. It’s a bit complicated, but I appreciate the attempt to capture all of our perverted permutations. I highly recommend reading all the questions first and make notes prior to filling out the survey. I had to complete it twice to get at all the variations in my preferences.
Daily Dot has a brief article up about “giantess vore,” and they cite Spitty and Arctic Giantess, two size creators I’m very happy to see get wider mention. A dozen other creators get linked, as well. Despite the headline, the (very short) article emphasizes that size kinksters come in all genders and orientations.
Inspired by this distracting tweet by Aborigen. The Y-axis describes your size relative to the primary character(s) you interact with. The X-axis describes the aggregate tone of the size interactions. The latter is subjective, but importantly so.
As Hessig says, one of the most striking things about Harukawa’s women is that they aren’t attending to the men they’re dominating. They just seem to regard their dominance as business-as-usual. This tiny man appreciates that.
