A Look Back On My First Hentai Manga and the Sexual Fantasies That Stuck

[CW: sexually explicit images, discussion of content relating to sexual assault, rape, and coercive sex. I do NOT recommend this manga series to anyone who has experienced sexual trauma.]

Way back, when the internet had JUST made the switch from dial-up to broadband, and I was a tween just beginning to discover the wonders of online porn, one of the very first pieces of erotica I ever encountered was a hentai manga called Bondage Fairies.

The general idea behind the series was that it followed these two sexy, fem fairies named Pfil and Pamela who serve as hunters working to protect their forest home from a whole bunch of crap like satanic beetles, murderous shrimp, and sexually unsatisfied squirrels. No matter what the scenario was, no matter what new menace was introduced, it almost always started with them fucking each other and then quickly led to them fucking some insect(s), intelligent woodland critter(s), each other some more, themselves, or even an adult human being from time to time.

Soon enough, I also discovered there there was so much more than just the one series. In fact, there were four! You had The Original Bondage Fairies, Bondage Fairies Extreme (which had another 14 chapters), The New Bondage Fairies (WARNING: the original series contains rape plots), and The NEW Bondage Fairies: Fairies Fetish (another sizeable collection of porn comics). I’m talking well over 1000 pages of hardcore comics, ya’ll.

And this thing just had a LOT going for it including masturbation, mutual masturbation, fingering, fisting, anal, oral, face fucking, tribbing, squriting, cum eating, non-con play, masochism, threesomes, foursomes, gang bangs, orgies, nurse play, latex fetish, whips and chains, body harnesses, collars and leashes, and more.

At the time I had NO idea what even half of these things were called, let alone that there were some many other unique fetishes at play within this fantasy setting. Over the years my desires and fantasies have certainly changed and evolved but looking through Bondage Fairies again… it’s interesting to see how many of the fetishes in particular have stuck around. For example:

 

Macrophilia/Microphilia

What the fuck is that you ask? Good question!

Have you ever been looking through porn art on the internet and up pops some Disney lewds, and there’s Tinkerbelle drawn all sexy, maybe getting down with some human sized genitalia, and you’re like “damn, Tink is hot… I wonder what doing it with a fairy would be like”?

No? Okay, well it might just be me. Whatever.

The point here is that microphilia and macrophilia are sexual fantasies that involve some form of sexual arousal around very small, oftentimes miniature, beings or very large, oftentimes gigantic, beings. These fantasies can range from imagining that you are a 500 ft tall human babe using buildings as sex toys, to a human being having having their genitals rubbed down by a fairy, or, that you’re the fairy yourself, grinding up on those gigantic sexual organs to satiate the lust of your human overlords.

Is it weird? Sure. It’s weird. I’m weird, you’re weird, people are fucking weird and so are their sexual fantasies. Let’s move on.

 

Furries

Yep! While one might think of characters like Lola Bunny, Daffy Duck, or Lt. Judy Hopps as definitive of furry characters, the genre actually has a surprising amount of variety in how furries are personified. Furries that walk, talk, dress, and behave more like humans than like animals are of the anthropomorphic variety whereas characters that speak, think, and emote like humans, yet still appear far more animal [often not wearing much of any clothes and walking around on all four limbs] are what is known as “ferals”. Outside of porn settings, you might recognize a feral furry character as characters from movies like The Lion King, The Aristocats, Lady and the Tramp, 101 Dalmations, etc.

Of course, if you’ve read my blog for a while you’d know that I’ve been into furries and furry porn [often called “yiff”] for quite a while, though I’m almost exclusively in the anthro area there.

I’m less about Simba and more about Nick Wilde or Gadget Hackwrench, yo.

 

Exhibitionism, Outdoor Sex, BDSM…

…mutual masturbation, voyeurism, group sex, pegging, and so on on so forth. So okay, a lot of this shit was hot to me then and is still hot to me now, with the exception of a handful of things that have just never really done it for me personally (ie; piss play and vorephilia). The take away here is that I think it’s pretty fascinating to look back at early exposures to erotica and possibly rediscover the roots of what sexually excites me.

Unfortunately though, revisiting Bondage Fairies wasn’t all nostalgic sexiness…

 

Rape Culture

[CW: descriptions of sexual violence and manipulation] A few of the collected stories are tarnished by plots that relied heavily on sexual assault, rape, and sexual coercion “plots”. In particular, The New Bondage Fairies collection features The Rat Patrol, The Wrath of Titanos, Jumbo Shrimp, and Super Hopper, all featuring sexual assault as core parts of their story. Worse, these presentations of sexual assaults actively work to both trivialize and eroticize those actions through tired, sexist tropes that present Pfil as deep down “wanting” the sexual abuses she receives.

Further, the author broadly paints all the cis guy characters as not having any control over their sexual lust and oftentimes the other characters, Pamela included, blatantly ignore Pfil’s very clear statements of “NO” as they guilt or coerce her into sexual situations that she has explicitly expressed discomfort with. Pamela is more often than not the worst for this, taking great pride in manipulating Pfil to have sex with her or others.

So, that fucking sucks.

 

Do you remember what your first erotic media was (video, pictures, a book, comic)?

Are some of your long-held sexual fantasies and desires represented in that early erotica?

Looking back on it now, are there things about it that you see differently now?

Are You Reading the Rock Cocks? Because You Should Be Reading the Rock Cocks.

So, I haven’t really read the Rock Cocks in a while but I swung by the webcomic this evening and HOT DAMN, you should go check it out right now. Track 6 has just begun with Suria and Steg on the road to their next gig. To stay awake they start talking about album cover ideas and Suria bring up how she would love to be stark naked on their next album… or be stark naked on stage… or have Steg finger and fuck her in front of a sold out auditorium until she cums in front of everybody.

It’s a really hot convo and Suria’s excitement about the whole fantasy is not only super adorable, it also perfectly exemplifies one of the Rock Cocks’ biggest strengths as a sex webcomic: the sexual communication between its leads.

Never before have I read a sex comic featuring characters who FEEL relateable in regards to the way that they talk about, and engage in, sex. I mean, sure, there’s some pretty fantastical comic-booky stuff that goes on like the enormous club orgy that happens at their first show or the devious record producer giving her villain monologue while playing with herself. And all of that is, admittedly, incredibly freaken hot, for sure.

But for every one of those scenes there are an equal number of really powerful little moments too. Moments like Steg checking in with Suria while she is riding him or their casual conversation about masturbation habits before they get off together. And it’s those little moments of asking for consent, checking in, communicating needs, expressing desires, having fun, and enjoying their sexuality together, that keeps me coming back to the comic.

Of course, the incredibly sexy artwork and consistent portrayal of public sex is a huge plus too. So, I guess what I’m trying to get at here is that it’s Friday night and if you’ve never read the Rock Cocks then there are over 200 pages of a really awesome sex comic that I highly recommend you check out this weekend.

It all starts right here with Track 1!
