Seafood-L Giles English’s recently published femdom novella, Seafood (Sex Slave of the Lesbian Flappers), is a curious tale that is set either in an alternative universe or the fantasy world of a submissive virgin who is a coding drone based in London. It doesn’t really matter much which of those “realities” the story takes place in because the premise is simply to set the scene for a fairly outrageous femdom adventure.

The story is told from the perspective of a male slave living in a version of the 1920s in which there are no free males and all the women are lesbians. There is a vague allusion to the narrator’s original self being abducted and cloned by aliens prior to the beginning of his plight. Unfortunately for him, his servitude is not the kind usually found in BDSM stories where there is some variation of a sexually charged D/S dynamic at play. This manifestation of slavery is absolute without any sexual interplay beyond the humiliation and frustration on the slave’s part when his duties require him to attend to his mistress’s ablutions, assist in her dalliances with lovers, or serve her as a masturbatory tool.

In this world slaves have permanent chastity cages fastened on their genitals and public whipping posts and benches are commonplace, even in locations such as churchyards and resorts. Mistresses matter-of-factly utilize these public conveniences for routine discipline, but not before requiring their slaves to publicly milk themselves with a self-lubricating dildo. Absolutely, these are hardcore femdom fantasies, and they would seem way more over-the-top if presented in contemporary and conventional circumstances. Somehow the unreal setting provides them with a degree of plausibility that even evokes a little humor as the narrator frets about his combined arousal and dread when facing this sort of punishment/humiliation.

It is doubtful Seafood will appeal to a general readership, as would be true of any femdom-themed book, but it is a unique and well-crafted read that I suspect femdom literature aficionados will appreciate. It has the feel of a book that draws from a personal passion, whether or not it actually does.

About Jim Lyon

Jim Lyon began writing erotica in the mid 1990s and served as story editor for the now-defunct Ownme.com before his first femdom-themed erotic novellas, Uncharted Territory and The Accidental Domme, were published as e-books by Sizzler Editions. Jim is originally from the San Francisco Bay Area. He left high school in his senior year to live the bohemian life in New York City's Greenwich Village and Lower East Side. Not being a big fan of cold weather and crowded tenements, Jim returned to the West Coast within six months and lived in Berkeley during the tumultuous mid to late 1960s and early 1970s. While there, his claims to fame include being folksinger Malvina Reynolds' neighbor/tenant and part owner of the Northside Theater, a repertory cinema of considerable renown. After leaving Berkeley, Jim put himself through college and earned a B.A. in Journalism from USC. His eclectic career since then has encompassed editing, writing, business management, social work, teaching, and web publishing, with stops in northern and southern California, Hawaii, Florida and Oregon.
