Finished writing Pleasure Drone

I finished writing the script for Pleasure Drone today. This is an abduction, brainwash and objectification fantasy inspired by the hypnosis scene in Our Man Flint. But of course, Pleasure Drone will be sexually explicit including an MFF threesome.

I almost added a trigger to the final paragraph. But in the end I decided against it. The trigger would have been to become an obedient pleasure drone at my command. And this would have helped the listener go into a trance more quickly each time they listened to the file.

But a lot of my customers are married couples. And I don't want anyone getting concerned I might be trying to steal women from their husbands. That actually happened once. Right after I released Trance Junkie, a husband emailed me saying his wife was afraid I was trying to steal her from him. I reassured them that I wasn't. Everything I say in these recordings is meant to be part of a fantasy. I never meet my customers in-person.

So no trigger in the Pleasure Drone script. But I am thinking about offering live skype sessions (for a fee) to install a trigger and make the listener become a drone for their spouse.

Facebook page discussion forum

I've always thought it would be nice to have a forum where my customers could ask me questions and discuss their experience with my recordings. I just never had the time or skill to set one up.

But yesterday I attended a business incubator presentation that suggest Facebook pages could be used for this purpose. So I set one up. Of course, I'll post news and announcements to the page, But the set up allows people to post questions. Not only can I answer questions there, but so can other facebook members.

Here's the link. Please, "like" it to join the discussion.

New Article

I've written another short article and posted it on hub pages.

Please read, Hyperemperia, The Art of Hypnotic Storytelling

(I'd post a quote, but I'm afraid they'll deleted the article if they 'duplicate content' on this blog.)

Paypal Problem resolved

The paypal problem has been resolved. They 'once again' determined that my recordings do not violate their terms of service. So I can resume sales of MP3 files immediately.

Thank the gods, I didn't have to get a lawyer. In spite of the problem,  paypal's bureaucracy, and the automated emails, their tech support people were actually quite nice and helpful.

Problems with Paypal

Yes, I'm having a disagreement with Paypal. People have warned me for years that Paypal didn't allow sales of adult products. But I've been using them as my payment processor for over 10 years. I considered my business to be "grandfathered in" because I signed up before they implemented the 'no adult product' policy.

In fact when I called their support line today, the Paypal rep verified that they had reviewed my web site and products several times over the past few years and never had a problem. He didn't understand why they would suddenly change their mind, but he had to send the issue to a different department for resolution.

The timing was also quite malicious. I typically withdraw most of my funds the first week of the month (to pay rent and other bills).  They froze my account just a few hours before I made this month's withdrawal. 

So sales of my mp3 files are temporarily suspended. Hopefully this will be resolved on Monday. If not, I'll have to contact a lawyer about taking legal action against them. I think that Paypal's practice of suspending accounts and withholding money for 6 months may be a violation of the Hobbs Act 18 U.S.C. (interference with interstate commerce by extortion). After all they have essentially shut down my business.
