'My Life as Inukai-san's Dog'


Rika Darren and her dog at the Folsom streetparade 2003

What can be more innocent than a girl walking her cute canine? Welcome to 'My Life as Inukai-san's Dog.' The story goes something like this: high school boy turns into a dog. Don't ask, some things just happen. Luckily, Inukia-san, she is his highschool crush, takes him in. Owner and owned live happily ever after. Why wouldn't he? As they come home, Inukai takes her pet with her into bath. This is where you're supposed to shout: objection, your honour. Or not.

If this reminds you of the story of the Beast Yapoo, you're not alone. 'Inukai-san's Dog' is Japanese manga, reworked into anime. Haven't seen it, nor do I intent to but the parallel is too good to pass up on.

Of course the anime stirs up controversy. It's rating on anime sites is low, which means the controversy should help boost ratings. So what's the hype about? From what I understand it's the over top and slightly unusual 'fan service', sexy and partial nude [imaginary] cartoon girls in the hope of roping in teenage boys.

Still from the Japanese anime 'My Life as Inukai-san's Dog'

Back in 1989, then prince Charles and unhappily married, confessed to his lover ‘Oh, God. I'll just live inside your trousers or something. It would be much easier!'

Camilla [now his wife] replied: 'What are you going to turn into, a pair of knickers?'after which both were laughing. That's a match made in heaven. Especially because all of this happened before the internet went mainstream.

As for Charles, they pretend you can have it all, meanwhile your life is one, big prison, come on. Have some fun. Whatever you do, make sure you wake up to the one person who loves you for who you are. And if you said something silly out loud that shows the world how much you love - and want her - all the better. People forget, she'll remember. It's not always good to be the king. Hope his highness is happily married these days. Woof.

Face the music

Originally by Baby D in the early 1990's, this version from a couple of years back is so much lighter, more spacey, as if you're floating on air. Love it.

Ukraine. It doesn't get much sadder than this.

The Pleasure Principal

Surrender to life or suffer

Hedonism can be a cruel, demanding mistress

Ciao Bella's competition. Love the leather, fear the future.

A slave's life is not always a happy one. It's shouldn't be about being unhappy, that much I know for sure. One day you wake up and realize 'this is it.' Something you need to digest and accept. Some take forever to do so. Me, I just shrugged my shoulders. Oh, that's what they call it.

The illusion of happiness through instant gratification is perhaps best illustrated by food. Eat whatever you want - and as much as you want - may sound like fun while you're at it, but it won't improve your life. Rather the opposite. Imagine your biggest passion in life is tennis. The more you eat, the more your game starts to slide. But if the game gives you infinitely more pleasure than food, time to cut back.

The Year of Living Dangerous

Some more than others

Ciao bella.

Welcome to year 11 of this blog. Who would've guessed, certainly not Google. Or me. While I break my head what to do in 2024 for its first anniversary, let's have a little pre-party. In case you're wondering whether or not I'm actually going to break my head, it's something we say in Dutch when we think long and hard about solving a particular problem.

Herrin Mercedes: Portrait of a Lady

She is one of many wonderful unicorns in the world of femdom

I expected to discuss more interviews this December, then again even two posts make for a series.

Don't know if Covid-19 is to blame for the uptick in slaves hoping to serve dommes with a medical background but one thing is sure, long before Covid-19 wreaked havoc I was spellbound by domina Mercedes. She one of two founders of the famous Avalon dungeon. Sadly the facility has now closed, not that it stops Herrin Mercedes to keep on radiating personal gravity like never before.

Leather Coats 'n Stuff

Finally a worthy successor to Sophia Loren. Sort of.

A little more light reading these last few days of December 

Sophia Loren wearing a leather coat by Balmain in the 1960 movie 'The Millionairess'.

Nobody understands fashion better than Dutch. Millionaire women on the other hand? I'm well off and I know. Once or twice I dated a rich woman and the huge difference in wealth makes the outcome almost inevitable.

Let Me Be Your Bondage Turkey

From the "All I want for Christmas department"

In the run-up to the holidays Dutch forgot to press 'publish', so here we go on the third day of Christmas. Hope you had a good one. I certainly did.

Not all turkeys are created equally.

It's the festive season. While I'm dreaming that one day I'll finally end up as mistress personal leather turkey, I suddenly realize something. True love leads to true devotion, which is like a stairway to serious surrender. But now we're getting ahead of the story.

Because this is femdom, there are always two sides to the story. A while back I dreamt up a time machine for myself. Imagine waking up one morning in a leather bag, unable to move but with mistress sound asleep next to you, big smile on her face and one arm over the leather bag that comforts the man she loves. How I ended up inside one of them is a different story. Fun one, yes. Don't worry, won't bother you with that right now.

Cruel Christmas Crackers with the Hunteress

How to make a slave sing

All I want for Christmas? No blisters anyone?

Imagine from the Hunteress on Twitter.

It's December, the one and only month where those who are not pure vanilla can marvel at the beauty of darkness. Also, time for some more light-touch writing, which is why Dutch goes full fanboy, reading up on some of his favourite dommes. Any sucking up is intentionally. I mean is not. [What I meant to say is that English is a difficult language, almost as complex as American.]

Hunteress' Trick Question

The universal language of the cane is instinctively understood

"To what number can you count in English?", the Hunteress asks.

Those eyes. That look. Run Forest, run.

Don't answer that! Whatever you do, don't. Silence is golden. Don't even say "I don't understand what you are saying mistress." Gotcha. As a German slave you should answer in German. Now you're busted. Won't surprise anyone that the clip ends in a bloody mess. Of the slave's own making. Just keep your mouth shut. Or ask for a gag. Yes, in German of course. D'oh.

How Not to Sell Expensive Handbags

Never Normal strikes again

Advertising and BDSM - a match made in hell

From our new, exciting! Sesame Street collection

If you just love Gwyneth Paltrow's 30K bondage chaise, there's more good news. Nope, still hasn't sold out, if that's what you mean. You can ridicule fimdoms all that you want for their bad taste - the most expensive one is the best - but nothing beats a luxury brand in distress.

Death in Slow Motion: Women and Girls Under Taliban Rule

Remember Girls Not Brides? Good luck. You're gonna need it.

Abandoned. Erased. Alone. Afghan women are on their own. Nobody will come to their aid. No matter what.

In the middle the image from the Amnesty International report on women and girls under Taliban rule. To the sides Degas' painting of Dante and Virgil who are about to enter hell.

December 02 is International Day for the Abolition of Slavery. The obvious topic this year is the world cup football in Qatar. In 2014 Deadspin, a sports magazine, wrote "Qatar's World Cup Expected To Take More Lives Than 9/11", which is about 3.000. Qatar is furious. As it turns out at least double that number didn't survive. According to the Guardian some 6,500 migrant workers died in Qatar, building a 200 billion dollar infrastructure for the world cup. And that's a very conservative estimate. There's more than enough coverage - but very little action - when it comes to a world cup built on modern slavery, let's focus on Afghanistan instead.

lf a Woman Needs It, Should She Be Spanked?

Only if she deserves it

Suddenly Dutch has developed a healthy respect for hairbrushes.

Women can learn a lot from men. Yes, that's right. Mostly by paying attention to what is left out, a pesky little thing called consent. Who needs that anyway in our consensual non-consensual community?

Found this news paper clipping in some hidden folder on my computer. No doubt, I saved it to write about at some later time. Don't know when it was published, probably back in the 'good old days' when men were men and women knew their place'.
