The Joys of Escapist Fantasy

As an author of age play, one of the things like like the most is the challenge of making it believable.  Being adults automatically entitles us to certain things in the eyes of society – including independence and autonomy. By the time we edge towards adulthood, we are ready shake the bonds of authority. Ask any parent whose child pulls away from the guiding hand, and they’ll tell you that desire to break away often begins before we leave childhood.

I can do it. Stop worrying. Stop telling me what to do.

Age play is often understood because it involves regressing to a state where submissive partners embrace the very boundaries and guidance we shed with adulthood. Once we realize what we miss about childhood, some of us seek to embrace it anew with partners dominant enough to provide it.

As a genre, age play appeals because it allows us to escape into a world where our characters either want to be regressed or need to be and embrace it. They’re told how to dress, how to behave, what time to go to bed, what to eat. They’re spanked when they’re naughty. For people who don’t practice age play, books featuring age play scenarios allow them to enter worlds where this kind of domination and submission is entirely plausible and possible. For those who don’t have this kind of relationship, the books allow them to live vicariously through characters who live entirely by the leave of those in authority, whether that’s a rich man, a nanny or – in the case of my book – a US Marshal.

For real life practitioners, the lifestyle requires a bit of finesse. Who’s to say that the Type-A manager who just sent out a commanding memo won’t go home and don a pinafore before being spanked over her Daddy’s knee? Who’s to say that the man running a Fortune 500 partner doesn’t seek out the companionship of a woman he can call Mommy?

In a world of pressure and adult responsibilities, those longing for a return to a world of boundaries and control often need a safe place to hide, an escape. For some, it involves a world of fictional characters living as they wish they could live. For others, the escape is real, and in the arms of real dominant with the strength and caring to allow their partner to wear that inner child on the outside, at least behind closed doors.

For those longing for a real age play lifestyle, may our books be the bridge that eventually gets you there.

Hollywood starlet Marissa Sparks’ career teeters on the brink of implosion when movie producer and actor Joel Sutherland takes her in hand. He requires her to move in with him and live as his Little so he can provide strict discipline and guidance but he isn’t sure if it’s all a ploy to stay in the movie.

After George comes home one night and finds Caroline pleasuring herself, over the course of an extraordinary year Caroline and George, with the help of new friends and former students, utterly transform their erotic life together in the pattern of those taboo fantasies.

Will handsome Englishman Max Brookshire be able to make Elise the Little she secretly wants to be?

  1. This is totally escapism for me all fantasy through books etcetera. At the end of the month I’ll be 52 but in my mind it changes from day to day. Ageplay is a big part of it. I found a series awhile ago, I think it was on Laura’s corner ok I found a lot. It was by lurking dragon I think it was in the future and a alien machine they have would actually deage you. They got rid of prisons and turned the prisoners in to kids again and sentenced them to be reraised by spankings. Anyway it was a great interesting idea. I still fantasize different things in that universe.


  2. You’re so right – the world is full of pressure and adult responsibility. Striving for a balance between being the responsible human I need to be and achieving some of that fantasy/escapism is such a challenge. Books and stories of this type help find that balance for me.


  3. When I read Ageplay I can escape to a place where I am young and carefree without any responsibility or problems and have a daddy that loves me, protects me and spanks me.



  4. I love reading age play for the escape/fantasy factor. It fills some empty spot in my and makes me smile. Just imagining letting go of responsibilities for a while without the fear of all the balls I keep in the air falling down. Hmmmm so peaceful. Thanks.


  5. Oh the concept of escapism…..oh this sounds good. I want this sometimes and other days I’m glad I don’t have this. The appeal is no responsibilities. BTW, I want Jason Momoa to spank me. That is my fantasy. lol


  6. I love the escapism of reading this genre. I have a demanding job and reading is my escape, my panacea. Going to that works where the protagonist has no adult responsibilities seems like heaven . I know it’s not always candies and cake…but it seems to be a relief from the stress of an everyday demanding life.
    Thank you so much
