Across the world in millions of fetish stories, sexually submissive men and women are being shipped to mansions for erotic delight.  These mansions are owned by controlling dominants that have can buy and sell entire cities.  They offer an escape from the normal world into a world of decadent delight.

The rich and powerful are such strong elements in erotica because by their very nature, they have the power to create an erotic world.  It makes sense and it is very easy for a writer to explain things away but just saying, “Look, they’re rich and they can afford a swimming pool of lube if they want.”  Writers love easy.

The problem is that we live in a world right now with Wall Street bailouts, near world wide economic depression and the One Percent.  There is a good argument that we are living in a Second Gilded Age and the glimpses we get of the real life rich and famous are quite disturbing.  Instead of cool masters of the universe, the rich often comes across as psychotic old men terrified of being taxed.  It is not what I would consider erotic.

(Side note- I would however love to see a kinky mansion story with asshole characters straight out of the financial news.  You want to talk ruthless?  A stockbroker will sell his mother to turn a profit; you think an investor dom is going to have any emotional attachment to some pretty mouth?

But that’s another article…)

Still, erotica is fantasy and sometimes you want to read a story about sex and not worry about the real world.  I get that.  I just think that the real world is hard to ignore sometimes, and when I read about a rich dominant these days, I find myself wondering if his hard limits includes estate taxes and SEC regulations.  Maybe we should retire the rich dominant and his mansion of bondage delights for a little while.  Not forever, just for a little bit.

What can we replace the mansion with?  What does a mansion have going for it anyway? 

A) Seclusion.  You can run around naked and not worry about the mailman seeing you.

B) Time.  Rich people don’t have day jobs.  They can afford to spend the hours and hours tormenting submissives that you need in a book.

C) Illusion of Superiority.  This one is more subtle.  See, we as a people tend to associate money with success.  Our natural tendency when we met a wealthy person is to assume they did something right.  Therefore, when the rich dominant is making the submissive do something outrageous, the mansion adds an air of authority to the dom.  The mansion of wealth is an endorsement of the dominant that maybe he knows better than the poor lowly sub.  After all, who has the mansion here?

Well my friends, what could we possibly write about that satisfies these three criteria?  What is our substitute for the Mansion of Bondage? 

I suggest, the Trailer Park of Bondage.

I will give you a moment to quit snickering. 

Now imagine the Trailer Park of Bondage.  Where is it located?  Well most trailer parks are in very wide open, cheap property.  Our trailer park is located off a dirt road out of town.  It is surrounded by trees.  You can’t see this park from any paved road.

You might think a trailer park is still too wide open but you don’t have my white trash background.  You haven’t seen the tyrannical landlords that run these places.  These landlords pick who live here.  They discriminate on color, sexual orientation and whether or not they like the look of you.  In other words, they can be assholes.

This kind of behavior is shameful in the real world but for any regular sex club, it’s down right commendable.  It is perfect for our trailer park of bondage.  This landlord only allows people he knows are 24/7 in the lifestyle.  Every trailer is a mansion of sin.

Which brings us to time.  Have you seen the economy lately?  Unemployment is near ten percent.  A lot of people have nothing but time.  The rent of a trailer can be pretty low and sustainable on unemployment or a single breadwinner.  I’m not saying that every trailer park is full of the unemployed; I am just saying that for the purpose of erotica, we have a very plausible reason for a home where kinky people have all day to play with their toys.  The husband can work a blue collar job while his wife stays home and dominates the cute college girl they are dominating for the summer.

The Illusion of Superiority is the more interesting thing.  It is almost never mentioned in mansion erotica stories.  If it is, it is just the submissive gasping in wonder at delicious food and pretty art.  It is below the surface of the story. 

Take a moment to think about the snickering you did when you realized this was an article about trailer parks of bondage.  Think of how dismissive you were.  Think of the most cartoonish redneck po’ folks image you had.  Now think of your submissive having that same response.  Think of how snobbish they will act.  Think of how these submissives will think they are better than being in some trailer park of bondage.  Hold that in your head.

Now picture the very competent, very smart, very proud dominant that lives in this trailer.  Picture his/her reaction to this fucking snob who looks down on their way of life.  Imagine how eager they are to wipe that smug smile off that submissive’s face.       

We call that tension.  We call that a conflict waiting to happen.  That’s erotica.

Let’s look at the average trailer.  Modern trailers are huge.  I’ve seen some with a kitchen, living room, 2 bathrooms and 3 bedrooms.  That’s nicer than my apartment.

Less modern trailers still have two bedrooms, one master and one bedroom with is so Spartan that it looks like it was specially designed for submissives.  The walls are so thin that there is no privacy.  Someone being fucked in the master bedroom will be pretty audible to anyone else in the trailer.  Every day is a trail of exhibitionism.

A trailer also has a yard and let me tell you, the pride some people put in their yards would put homeowners to shame.  There is grass to be mowed.  There are flowers to be tended to.  If you like your kinky erotica with housework, there is a shit load of yard work inherent in a trailer to make you happy.  Sure, a submissive can prove their obedience by washing a floor, but real obedience is mowing a lawn in the heat wearing nothing but a collar and a butt-plug.

I submit for your imagination, the following examples of Kinky Trailer Parks.

Thistle Acres – This trailer park caters to creative types.  The landlord has to be convinced of you artistic talent before he will let you rent here.  The residents include woodcarvers, painters, some suffering writers and one phone sex operator.  No one is rich here but they all get by.  They make their money and they keep their sanity by spanking the Hell out of submissives. 

The land lord goes to a bondage club in town where he recruits those who are looking to get away from it all for a week or so.   He considers himself a patron of the arts and know that artists always need new pussy and ass.  As creative types they tend to bore easily so they have taken to trading submissives every few days.  The submissives enjoy a little crazy fun and the artists get somebody to do their yardwork and make meals.  Every one wins.

Last Hope Road – Where do bad submissives go when they flunk out of their fancy kinky mansions?  A better questions is where do the really mean dominants go that are too mean for uppity kink mansions?  They both go to the same place, Last Hope Road.

It is a secluded trailer park with shitty trailers and rather bitter dominants.  The submissives are sent here to learn humility, obedience and an appreciation for the fine things at the mansion.  The dominants are sent here to get their shit together and become better dominants but most of them just use the place as a way to transfer their frustrations to pretty faces.  The dominants doubt they will ever get to go back to the mansion but at least they still got some ass to slap. 

Last Hope road is a good setting for your spoiled princess submissive, or the dominant on some sort of redemption arc.

Golden Estates – The nice thing about getting older is that you figure out what you really want.  The residents of Golden Estates have decided to spend their retirement with pretty young things across their knees.  All the residents are of retirement age and all of them were awesome dominants in their youth.  They don’t have the energy to flirt and seduce shy submissives anymore, but they do love to spank, fondle and fuck the college kids who spend their summers here.  They are eager to teach their skills to the next generation.

Imagine a character who was a young twenty-something thing and he goes to visit his Uncle that the family has shunned.  His uncle lives at Golden Estates and has a lovely young woman that he keeps as a toy.  The character could learn at his Uncle’s side and enjoy that kind of feel good “I learned something this summer” story that everyone likes.

I hope this article and these examples have opened your mind to the possibilities of kinky trailer parks.  I hope the next time you start to write your kinky fantasy story; you hesitate before creating yet another expensive mansion.  I am not saying that trailer parks are better, but I feel they would be different.  We could use more different porn.

Lastly, remember that the Trailer Park of Bondage can be a touching story about the culture shock of a city submissive finding everything they ever wanted in a trailer park.  Or the Trailer Park of Bondage can be the story of ruthless hillbillies inflicting some country punishment on spoiled submissives.  It can be a heart warming tale of down home perversion like a very special episode of the Andy Griffith Show or it can be as harsh as an extra kinky version of Deliverance.  You’re the writer, it is up to you. 

Go play with it.
