Ero Week: How I Met the Bondage Fairies

0

Growing up in a small town has it's advantages. For instance, in mine there was only one comic shop, but even so, being the only game in town meant that the owner had free reign over what he stocked his shelves with. As a fifteen year old, I read the Akira manga, loved every moment of Ghost in the Shell, and visited twice weekly in hopes of finding new imports from Japan among his offerings.

One week, I was flipping through a box of comics when I stumbled across something very new to me indeed. The cover of this comic depicted a lithe, sprite-like fairy, coyly posing atop a caterpillar and straddling it from both sides. The art definitely had the anime look, but even I was old enough to realize the word "bondage" on the cover could only mean one thing.

I had found my first ero manga.

Called Bondage Fairies, the comic in my hand would soon become a favorite. I'm grateful to its authors to this day for helping me walk down the road that lead to eventual comfort with my love of perversion. Thanks, Japan.

Hit the jump for more.

The pages of the very first issue of Bondage Fairies (written by a guy who went under the pen name "Kondom")held more than just regular old porn for me. In case you haven't read the series, I can tell you it's about the adventures of two young fairies named Pfil and Pamila. I could tell you the series had some sort of storyline, but really, that'd be a lie. The events loosely draped throughout each issue merely acted as a backdrop for the ongoing sexual adventures of the two fairies, which is what one mostly expects from hentai these days. I mean, unless the story itself is integral to the viewer's ability to become aroused reading it (see Hana: Little Sister), there's no need for fluff, is there?



Ah, but I'm forgetting one very important thing about Bondage Fairies. The name is a bit misleading, as it doesn't really have that much to do with whips and chains. Sure, that would make it a little weird, but I already knew that type of thing existed at that point in my teen years (don't ask me how). No, what Bondage Fairies offered was something distinctly different from anything I had ever seen before, all because
of one small detail about Pfil and Pamila's adventures. You see, they weren't having sex with humans, other fairies, or even doing it to themselves (although sometimes they were doing it to each other).

They were having sex with BUGS.

Arousing? Well, I'm not sure. I mean, what I remember more than anything was that I was morbidly fascinated with the orgasms these fairies were having with caterpillars, grasshoppers, spiders, and all variety of insects inbetween. Sure, it was extremely freaky, and that had enough appeal for me to keep buying new issues all on it's own. What type of beast would Pifil mount next? How gross would the union be? Would I be able to handle reading it, or would I have to shield my eyes? Do caterpillars even *have* penises?


Much to my relief, I didn't develop a fetish for bug porn. I did discover that I loved the Japanese's ability to stun me with the weirdness of their porn, but I also sensed the lack of shame in their work. There was never anything in Bondage Fairies that gave the impression it was trying to shock you, and I loved that. It made fairies getting it on with beetles seem natural after a while. And really, as long as what you're into doesn't hurt anybody, that's exactly how it should be -- and I think I got that message loud and clear, whether it was intended to be communicated through Pfil and Pamila's adventures or not.

Ah, what fond memories. Of course, now I'll have to go back and reread the whole series. If you'd like to discover it for yourself, used copies are still floating around here and there. If you end up wondering about what it would feel like to be caressed with eight arms instead of four, don't blame me, though -- I'm just the messenger here.
