Why I Am Facinated by Enforced Weight Gain - A (VERY) Quick Note
Hi Folks! So (I SO hate it when people start sentences with 'so'), doesn't time fly? A few more days and it would be a month since my last post here - and after my claim at Christmas / New Year that I was going to endeavour to post at least once (preferably, twice) a week!
Well, the word is (was) 'endevour' and if not much has happened and I've not done much which is noteworthy it doesn't seem worth blogging about it - and I doubt too many of you out there would want to hear of the bouts of depression which put me out of commission for long periods.
On a more positive note: I've recently returned to working on the illustrated Institutionalised version and also another related project involving the art of Angela Fox (whom I've not heard from for EVER so long - I really MUST re-establish contact with her) and some of the work we both did for Roger Benson which I promised Ms Fox I'd have done and dusted by (or soon after) Xmas but which got delayed by various troubles. As part of this new resurgence of interest of mine I have recently posted a couple of small samples on Tumblr and Pinterest (follow me if you don't already - and don't forget to 'like' and / or reblog my stuff...err...please!) and would welcome comments / ideas / inspirations / requests etc (preferably by email - I respond quicker that way, although if you comment here on Blogger the comments come to me on email anyway). By the way, I now have over 1000 followers on Tumblr - HOORAYYY!
Those who can remember that far back will remember me banging on about creating a bulletin / discussion board here. Well, thus far my attempts have failed dismally with the result that the ongoing conversation between 'Judith's Aunt' (which has absolutely nothing to do with me and anything I'm into - at least not directly) and the various interested parties is still ongoing as a series of comments at this location (click here to read through and / or join in)
Talking of Tumblr: It is always most gratifying to know there are people out there who appreciate my stuff, even when it is not so mainstream, such as my interest in enforced weight gain. So (I've done it again - too much listening to Radio 4 on the BBC where every interviewee starts of EVERY sentence with 'so' AGGGHHHH!), today I replied to a message on Tumblr dealing with exactly that (amongst other things) part of which I reproduce below for your interest (IF in fact you're interested of course):
As you probably realise, enforced weight gain is not a central interest of mine but rather my fascination with the subject stems from the aspect of the young lady coming under the control of another (preferably female - although I have toyed with the subject of male dom, just as I have with the concept of fem dom over the male) as part of the further subjugation of her will and under some circumstances I like to imagine the overt enforced overeating (or indeed, the cleverly covert / disguised overeating / weight gain) along with enforced exercise and / or the wearing of restrictive constricting corsetry.
I see the subject of enforced weight gain as being similar in that way to my interest in corporal punishment which I see as much (or more so) as a symbol or measure of the level of control achieved over the girl as a means of exerting or gaining control, with the real power coming from force of personality, psychological coercion and the girl's growing psychological dependency on her domineering governess or other authority figure.
As you can see, it ended up sprouting into some kind of 'mission statement, and I'd LOVE to know YOUR take on the subject!
Lastly: By the way I'm toying with the idea of attending the New Scientist Instant Expert Event seminar - TRANSFORMATIVE MEDICINE: THE FUTURE OF HEALTH tomorrow (held at The Royal College of General Practitioners in Euston Square, London). I haven't purchased a ticket yet but there still seems to be some left, so I wondered if anyone else who visits here might be going or considering going? Wanna meet for a pint and a chat?
