Gynarchic fiction

image
Ever since picking up ‘She Shall Have Music’, Emily had refused to leave the library.

Perhaps i am looking in the wrong places, but the body of good-quality Gynarchic fiction seems remarkably small, or else cunningly disguised behind the kind of self-published e-book cover with a computer generated man in a maid’s uniform  that no-one ever reads. i don’t mean Venus in Furs and others like it – that is Femdom, as it has no wider social Female Supremacist element. If it is out there, then it is lurking in the shadows, which is surely counterproductive. Great ideas need to breathe, and to be breathed in by those who have not encountered them before.

i have mentioned a few novels elsewhere but if you stumble across this page and have a recommendation, please leave a comment. Or email me on willowtide@mail.com

Which brings me to…

Here is a gynarchic novel. That’s my name at the bottom of the cover there. i’m not making any special claims for skill as a writer (in fact writing it has shown me just how hard it can be), but in She Shall Have Music i have at least attempted to conceive a Gynarchic universe. It is not that i had a burning plot to relate, but i hoped to encourage some reader somewhere to inhabit that imaginative space, even for a few hours, and realise that they feel at home.

The first part of She Shall Have Music features a young Woman inspired to raise Herself from rural poverty after a chance encounter with two prosperous Female slavers; by a boy whose lack of backbone i now rather regret; by a more admirable hero (yes you can be a Gynarchist and real man, dammit); and a patriarchal king dispossessed by his people in favour of his charming younger sister, who has secretly fallen under the sway of the last survivors of an ancient Matriarchal tribe.

There is even a scene in which a party of Dommes are obliged to disguise themselves as slave-girls in order to be smuggled into a Gorean city. May the Goddesses forgive me for that; it was all in the service of plot.

That reminds me i have some suggestions for casting, when the movie comes out.

She Shall Have Music is available on Amazon.

[UPDATE] Two short stories are available here (sci-fi) and here (weird).

  1. Wow! The search engines follow your tags to femdom fiction, almost every time. Boots, whips, male slaves, all the conventions of this commercially thriving sub-genre. One can search for hours without finding much written around the idea that women (yes, lower-case, dammit!) might just be able to run things–government, businesses, households–than men have been doing. Power on the basis of superior competence, without the goddess pedestal. Mutual respect, for the creative side of the male mind will be honored by women.
    In my fiction efforts, I posit equality of physical strength between genders, not amazonian superiority but sufficient parity to do away with crimes of violence against women. My first effort, the Dominion Day stories, I submitted to the Femdom Cave e-publishers in the UK, and that was based on the online gaming idea that players could create female avatars as powerful as male avatars. My next ideas did not have enough cruel dommes hurting submissive men for that publisher, so I self-pubbed Dominion Vote and Dominion Vegas. The Clean House Party is the political arm of the gynarchy in the USA and its main agenda is getting stuff done that the two old parties can’t get done. (See the cover of D-Vote on my facebook page, Milady Rules by Trevor Bruhn).
    I’ll take a look at She Shall Have Music soon, and comment.

    1. Hello trevor

      Thanks for your comment. i considered submitting my book to Femdom Cave once, but the comment in their guidelines that material featuring willing male submissives was ‘not really for us’ made me think they were perhaps not really for me either…
