Should we know exactly what turns on our other half?
Made this one for Lurker, and it'd been a long time coming. His preferences are a bit different than most, and it really makes you think when you create a caption for him AND I really haven't been in a very strong thinking mood over the last month or two. He only wants temporary changes and wants everything to be positive and not some sort of punishment or degrading at all. Not necessarily my wheelhouse by any stretch of the imagination.
However, I was reading his preferences today while taking a gander at pictures on-line and found a folder than looked promising, like in a fantasy realm. I had the idea of not particularly a body-swap, but more of a re-enactment of another person's dreams and fantasies. I left the actual technical part of it vague .. perhaps its a virtual reality set-up, a simulation projected into one's psyche, 'magic' if you'd like to call it that .. but the gist is that somehow you are acting out their subconscious desires.
As I described in the posting:
Was reading over your preferences again, knowing I owed you a caption, and was taken by the "positivity" aspect that you had been stressing. Hadn't really done that many, though I do have happy endings in many of my captions. When I saw this source photo, I ended up with a good idea on what I wanted to touch upon. Figured I would try to work out something that everyone has, but often won't share, and how it can bring people closer together, if they truly wish to understand another's viewpoint.
And, I was hearing a British voice in my head for the "guide" so Michael Caine was the voice I had in mind. I'm sure that John Cleese, Patrick Stewart, and/or Magneto all work fine too!
Hope you enjoy and sorry it took awhile! I am hoping it was worth the wait. Dee
I also left it somewhat open-ended as I didn't want to project any sort of fetish/desire upon your wife. I figured you'd be the one to fill in the blanks best with your own insight. Hopefully, it might give it a bit of universality to others reading it as well.Fantasies are very complex things to think about, and whether they should dwell in the actual real world, or be left for consumption by your subconscious. Most of my fantasies are such because their isn't really a way for them to be real unless I was a psychopath and/or living in some sort of holographic thing like on Star Trek: The Next Generation. I assume that people would be driven insane if they actually were able to view my dreams and I'm not just saying that.
Here is one of mine, for instance. One of my grandmothers just turned 90! A few weeks ago, I had a dream where a close friend of mine, my dad, me, my GF and daughter were with her when the zombie apocalypse happened. We geared up and were ready to evacuate to safer quarters (my friend is a bit of a survivalist) when my grandmother started freaking out about not being able to handle it, blah blah blah. I said to her, "You don't think you can make it there?" and she said, "I am not sure, and ..." At that point, I turned around with a machete and cut off her head, then said, "anyone else?" Right around that point, the morning alarm went off, which is probably why I remember it. I am not sure what to make out of it honestly, and it messed with my friend's head, and she's a huge fan of zombie/horror movies. "You cut your Memere's head off? What the fuck dude!" I am hoping it just means that I"m pragmatic and didn't want her to mess up the safety of the rest of us, and that she'd already lived a long life, and that beheading her would save her from being a zombie, but I really don't know.
Anyway, yeah. With dreams like that, stay out of my head, ok?
DISCUSSION QUESTIONS: Do you know your significant other's deepest fantasies? Did it bother you to learn of them if you did? If you don't, would you want to know? Would you want them to know yours? Why or why not?
