Goku Dolls! (Spoilers)

Three yakuza tough guys fail their boss one time too many. Their punishment? Be subjected to sex-change operations and relentless mental training so they can act and perform as a super cute and feminine K-pop girl group. This show is now on Netflix.

Wait, what?

Yes, the manga has now become a Netflix series. Is gender swapping fiction going mainstream?

One thing to know for sure is that this show, while it looks like a children’s anime, clearly delves into more adult worlds in terms of the issues and episodes. They get dirty at times. The primary fun of the show involves seeing these former men dress and perform as ultra cute girls, while also having to endure the negative side of life as a female.

Examples include getting harassed by guys who want to touch their breasts, dealing with pervy older fans, and getting hit on by guys they knew back when they were guys. Also fun is seeing them changing mentally.

One of them, for example, starts to get jealous when they other “girls” are getting more attention and gifts from fans. He argues and debates with himself, finally admitting he now wants to be cute and popular, even though it shames the man he once was. Another, upon meeting an actor he admired as a man, decides to offer that actor sex, feeling overwhelmed with feminine desire to give himself to the man.

I would have liked more of these kinds of conflicts, but they do crop up. In addition, the head of their clan clearly has a fetish for forced gender swaps, as over the course of the series two more men are turned into females, and a third is forced to get breast implants. It’s a zany show with a little too much shouting, but a huge break through for this kind of story to get streamed on Netflix in America.

Now Available: Your Memory Mine 2

It’s here! Your Memory Mine 2 is now available. I am so excited. I think this is one of the best things I have ever written and a case where the sequel is even better than the original.

When the story opens, our hero, Dylan, having found himself trapped in the body of a teen-age girl, has settled into a new life working as a waitress in New Hope, Pennsylvania. He’s found peace, and expects to live out a calm, normal life.

Then the girl who stole his body, shows up and once more throws his life into turmoil as rival agencies bent on world domination compete to capture Dylan and turn him into an agent of mass destruction.

Why do they want him so badly? What makes him such a special girl? Read Your Memory Mine2, and find out! This story features multiple body swaps, age-regression, action and romance!

As promised, you will find a sneak preview of Your Memory Mine 2 posted below.  What can you expect from this book?  Well, in a word, MORE. You will find more body swaps, more action, more romance!  In addition, we find out the secret of why Dylan is so important, as he continues to grow and face new challenges as a young woman.

It’s a blast, and I expect to have it out by mid-February!

Sample:

Dylan, shorter, ran as hard as he could, but he found himself trailing behind Kisa, being pulled along behind her, glancing back in panic as they ran around a corner and down a cobblestone street lined by old houses with lead windows. Kisa looked around for someplace to hide, slowing her pace so Dylan could keep up.  They sprinted down the narrow road, Chris and Nicki appearing from around the corner, shouting, “Stop! Hey!”

Kisa pulled Dylan down another, even more narrow side street, surrounded on either side by tall buildings of brick.  “We’re going to be trapped!”  Dylan cried out.

“Just keep up!”  Kisa said.

Dylan was gasping for breath, struggling as his chest heaved.  He hadn’t been training at all since coming to New Hope, and his body was telling him so.  “I can’t,” he said, seeing stars.  “I’m going to pass out.”

They came to an open warehouse, the steel door raised, and Kisa pulled him into the darkness, weaving through machinery and cargo containers, finally pulling Dylan behind one of the big, corrugated steel containers, letting him sink to the ground, gasping for breath, breasts heaving.  Kisa remained on her feet, creeping to the edge of the container, squinting out into the darkness, trying to calm her own breath, glancing back to see Dylan there, hugging his knees to his chest, his cheeks and nose flush.  He looked so pretty, so vulnerable, and she felt a powerful surge of testosterone.  She had to protect him.  Their eyes met, his wide, afraid.  “You’ll be safe,” she said.  “I’ll protect you.”

Dylan felt something in him twinge, felt himself flood with warmth.  God, she was so strong!  So brave.  “I know,” he whispered in a soft voice full of tangled feelings.

“They came down this way,” Sasha said, his voice carrying in from the street.  “I saw.”

“I did, too, but not whether they ran in here.”

“They must have.   They couldn’t reach end of street so fast.”

“Maybe we should split up?  I’ll run down there.  See if I spot them?”

“Okay, then.”

Syria ran off down the alley.  Sasha moved into the warehouse, each of her booted footsteps echoing.  “I know you in here,” she sang.  “I can smell Dylan’s perfume.”

“Shit,” Dylan whispered.

Kisa held her finger to her lips, crept back to where Dylan huddled on the ground, put her arm around him.  “Don’t move.  Don’t talk,” she whispered.  Dylan nodded.

They heard Sasha moving about, then pause,  There was a clicking noise, and then Sasha whistled.  “Come out come out,” she said.   Then they heard another sound, steel on steel. A metallic click.  “Do you know that sound?  I put a bullet in chamber.  When I find you, I’ll kill Kisa. We don’t need her.  But, if Dylan surrenders, I let her live.  Don’t you want to save your friend, little girl?”

Dylan looked at Kisa, eyes filled with concern, fear.

Kisa pulled him to her, kissed him on the head. Nodded, asking him with her eyes, Trust me.

If you liked Your Memory Mine, I predict you will love YMM2.  It picks up where the first book left off, with Dylan having accepted his new body and identity as a young woman, working as  waitress in New Hope, Pennsylvania.  He just wants to live his life in peace now and find some happiness with the one he loves.

But powerful forces come crashing down on his peaceful new life as competing agencies seek to capture him and unleash his untapped powers.  The second book reveals many of the secrets from the first book, including what makes Dylan so special and why people are willing to kill for him.

I have hacked out roughly 10,000 words of what I expect to be a 50- 60,000 word story, where the bullets fly, the bodies swap and no gets out unchanged! Look for more updates, teasers and giveaways in the coming weeks!

The Wild Boys: DVD Now Available!

Though I feel few share my fascination and admiration of The Wild Boys, I nevertheless decided to post up my review of the DVD, in which I will discuss in greater depth why I love this movie, as well as the Bonus Features.

To start with my love of the movie, let me express my admiration for the film making itself, which comes from what some, including the director, call the “Incoherents” movement.  Simply, this means the director does not concern himself with creating a false sense of unity and realism such as a viewer would find a mainstream Hollywood film.

So,  in TWB, sometimes the movie looks like an old-fashioned sea adventure, sometimes like a period drama, sometimes like dream.  In fact, to my mind, the result creates for the reader an experience much like a dream– with the  use of compression and symbolism, for example, inviting a series of sub-conscious reactions.   All of this works very well with the material, which explores mutability, metamorphosis, boys turning into girls, men into women.

As with the camera, the director does not ask the actors to play everything in a naturalistic way, which in any case he rejects as just another technique.  Sometimes the actors do seem to deliver their lines “California Style” but often, working with the camera, lines are infused with gravity, characters look off in dramatic ways or turn their heads for effect.  Within that context, the actors in this film, and particularly the young women who play the boys, I find all of their performances compelling.  The young women embody young masculinity, with the mannerisms and voices feeling right– not caricature  or camp, but like boys.  Similarly, they commit totally to surreal scenes, such as when a bout of boyish rough housing beneath falling feathers turns erotic just as they stand on the cusp of their new, female bodies.

So, innovative directing that matches the themes and subject matter, plus epic performances, and that’s a great film.  But, of course, I have a particular affinity for work that explores gender, and this one does it in ways that most such movies never have the nerve to explore.

Some of favorite moments resonate either because they blow past previous limitations, or else they celebrate what seem to me “classic” TG moments.  For example, there is a scene where one of the boys, still identifying totally as a boy, is startled and screams in a “feminine” manner, then discovers he now sounds like a girl when he talks.  The “voice change” had always been one of my favorite tropes, and so it was very fun to see this played out, with the boy clutching his throat, clearly embarrassed, and the others, not realizing they will share his fate, mocking him and calling him “girly.”

Another trope I enjoy the movie explores is that they boys develop breasts before they become biologically female, so we see a couple of them struggling with the shame of having breasts, the insecurity and ways it challenges their sense of identity.

Finally, the role-reversal and feminizing– or at least the forcing of the boys into feminine roles and situations, begins long before their physical change.  The Captain sexually harasses one of them at one point, while they also are forced to walk through a field full of “groping” plants.  And, of course, there is the phallic tree and its white juice they must drink to survive, as well as a suggestive fruit they are forced to eat.  So, while some may struggle waiting for the physical changes to occur, there is plenty to see in terms of gender before they even get to the biological morphing.  After the morphing, this film gets much more naked than most, so the reality of the new bodies is right there on the screen.

For viewers interested in seeing how characters adjust to their change, this film does not offer a lot.  After initially shocked and embarrassed reactions, including some morning for their lost phalluses, the characters seem to accept their new genders readily.  In addition, they seem largely unchanged, simply becomes female versions of themselves, with the same attitudes and values as before, something which I find interesting, but might not satisfy all viewers.

Bonus Features

Not much.  Of the deleted scenes, I did find two very worthwhile:  First, as he has first turned fully into a female, one of the boys is crying, staring at himself in the mirror.  A character known as The Doctor walks over and pulls his shirt open, so he now must confront the sight of his breasts.   In the second, a group of sailors comes to the island, and we see the boys– now all female–  moving in feminine, erotic poses, luring the men to their doom like sirens.

The others were well deleted.  In addition, the Behind the Scenes, while interesting, was a disappointment– and probably meant to be.  I must confess that here I had hoped for something more conventional, especially interviews with the actors about what it was like to play boys, for example, how they prepared, the voices…etc…  But it is a surreal short film shot on Super 8 with the actor murmuring poetically.  It works as a short film and ads some to the experience of the film– there is a scene of the actors, all in their boy forms, having fun with fake phalluses– but it doesn’t reveal as much as I had hoped.

GrimmLord: New Book!

GRIMMCVR3

Tough, brutal even, GrimmLord has spent his life hunting down and bringing the scum of New Rotterdam to justice.  His  game relies on intimidation and fear as much as his fists.  So, what will happen when one of his enemies starts to publicly feminize him over the course of the first, fabulous issue of this amazing new series?

In this story I explore gender identity, but also power and perception as GrimmLord not only finds himself female, but also forced into cute.  Will he remain the same when the world sees him as a soft, cute little female?  And how will his male team mates in the Justice Collective react to his shapely new body?

I am interested in how much a person can BE when the world sees them a certain way at odds with the way they see themselves.  In addition, how much does GrimmLord’s own biased view towards women– as things to be protected and cherished– impact his psyche when he looks in the mirror and sees his new, pretty face?

This books contains gender swap, age regression and forced cuteness!
