Do you have overbearing mothers?
Do you have the kind of mothers that tie you up, take your picture and plaster it all over dating apps such as BDSMatch.com or SubCupid.tif?
Or is that just me?
Oh well, such is life in The World.
I know that in this world you created, society is clearly functioning under different social norms, but this feels like nothing more than solicitation, and it makes me both disgusted and disappointed at you. I'm not telling you what to draw, but I'm just saying that this one leaves bitter taste in my mouth.
It's fine if you don't like it, I don't expect anyone to agree with me or what I draw.
And it's also interesting that you reacted specifically to this image since personally I'd say this picture is rather tame compared to other scenarios that I have depicted.
Well, here is the thing- I've seen a lot of your work up until now, and there is plenty that I like, and some less. I especially like your works on Leviathan and her trainer. However, that sketch of the mother and daughter is different because all of your scenarios depict relationship between two lovers, aka, people who trust each other with their safety and concent. However, this scenario is giving a feeling of a one sided concent for creating this dating profile, and it just feels like the mother is taking advantage of her daughter, without the latter having any saying on the matter, which is why it leaves a bad taste in my mouth. Even in a world like the one you created, I believe that the punishment for taking advantage of someone like that should be a life sentence. You may not agree with me, but this is what I think should be done.
Well at least I can somewhat see where you are coming from. Though I cannot promise that there won't be more content on these particular subjects, I nevertheless want to thank you for sharing your opinion in an expressed and clear manner.
My pleasure. It's not very often that I get a chance to be heard by the people that create the content I see on deviantart, and although I have no intention to stop you from doing what you're doing it's nice to see that you are willing to listen to what people has to say. Also, as for these subjects, trust me, I sadly encountered worse in other places on this site, and one of them made me leave a MUCH MORE angrier comment. I didn't cursed the creator of that content, but I still wrote that I found his work on that post downright abhorrent, and that he should be ashamed of himself for using his talents to create such a degrading scenario. So trust me, you are still among my favorites, even if I don't agree with all of your work. I wish you good luck, and more inspiration to create your content. :)
It’s nice until people decide you‘re broken and decide to try to ‘fix’ you. You wouldn’t believe how many men believe in the magic healing power of their dick. 🙄
Out of curiosity, whats the opinion of the World when it comes to asexuality? Its something I find myself wondering about when I look at stuff like this.
Also, sorry for the late reply. Eclipse is a pain.
Good question! The World in general is a bit more sexual than our real-life counterpart. In line with this and since medical technology has been advanced in that field, certain treatments are offered to those asexuals that might feel left out or whose asexuality stems from external factors or afflictions.
Such treatments are of course voluntary and asexuals are not expected to change their orientation unless they themselves should feel the need to. In fact, some of the most powerful superhuman actors also have little to no need for sex.
Asexuality as a concept is admittedly not something that I have given that much thought since it's a bit hard for me personally to imagine having a libido.
That’s fair, asexuality is something most people probably won’t think about. Although I will say some asexuals (like myself) do have a libido and can have kinks, we just don’t want sex.
it is cool to hear more about how your world works though. Sorry for asking. 😅 looking forward to seeing more of it in the future!
Huh, interesting. Specifically how does it work? Do you still watch pornography, get aroused by pictures/stories or masturbate? Is it just the sexual attraction to others that isn't there? Now don't answer anything if it's too private, I just got curious since the concept seems quite alien to me.
And don't be afraid of asking, it even helps me grow my world when I have to think about concepts that I'm initially unfamiliar with. Also I kinda like talking about my stuff, so there's that.
porn itself doesn’t really interest me. I like to watch the bondage and make fun of the plot, but I tend to skip the sex scenes. asexuality does vary from person to person, which is important to remember. I can only describe what my own sexuality is like.
But I get aroused and masturbate. Just don’t like sex with other people. You know how a straight Person doesn’t want to sleep with someone of the opposite sex? No sexual attraction whatsoever? It’s like that for me. No interest, but I can still have a relationship with someone. I can still love and date. If someone doesn’t want to date, they’re aromantic.
I’ve known asexuals who describe masturbating as ’scratching a very annoying itch’. One guy I met at college admitted he planned his grocery list while masturbating.
And most importantly. Asexuality isn’t caused by a past trauma, it’s just who you are.
I hope that makes sense. If I’m not just let me know
It’s a fascinating world and I love reading more about it!
Interesting, I think I understand your personal orientation and how it manifests itself. Also I suppose sexuality isn't binary and different for everyone, just like it is for non-asexuals.
I did know about the distiction between asexual and aromantic. It makes sense since love and sex aren't the same, even though people have been known to confuse the two.
And I'm glad that you can get something out of my world, even though my art mostly consists of sex scenes and pornography!
Fortunately I drummed it through my parents' heads I wasn't giving them grandkids at a young age. Any time they tried to start this crap with me I just said 'I have an older brother, that's his job.'
Lucky you, I'm an only child so the burden of my bloodline rests solely on me. Then again, I don't mind having kids, but I should probably wait until I'm all grown up myself.
I have no problems letting my family die out, really.... we have dozens of cousins on both sides of the family, and to be entirely honest I'm almost 40 and still haven't found a partner. I'm not about to do something stupid just to placate my parents' need for diaper changing. Harsh, but life can be.
Ideally having kids shouldn't be for the sake of anything else but the kid, so it sounds like you are making a good choice.
And for what it's worth: you seem like a nice guy and finding love in later years isn't unheard of!
Hah, well, one never gives up hope, but realism is healthier than idealism in my experience. If I find someone, good. But I'm also comfortable being alone, unlike so many people I see who feel they 'deserve' someone and have been cheated somehow. And yes, if I ever have a kid it's because I want to have a kid and then the child is priority one in life.
