About this blog and my writing

Welcome to my world, the world of societal restriction! This is the place where I will collect all my erotica written over the years except for that which is already featured on the excellent website Tales of the Veils.

My name’s Dave Potter and I started writing erotic fiction fifteen years ago. My initial interest was in tightlacing fiction and some of my earlier works can be read on the LISA site. The idea of pretty young ladies being restricted and turned into (as Mike so eloquently puts it) elaborate ornaments excited me deeply and caused my first foray into the murky world of internet erotica.

Over the years though, I’ve diversified somewhat. Back in 2005 I set up Tales of the Veils. I’d noticed over the previous years that the idea of women heavily veiled excited me just as much as the corsets and yet there was no writing of this nature on the internet. Rather than wait, I acted, and thus Tales of the Veils was born. Not being particularly tech-savvy, I handed over the reins of that site to Bo_Emp a few years ago but I still take an interest and am proud to say that it now holds almost 200 tales of veil-centric fiction, many of which are mine. Those stories will not be posted here, but if you like my stuff, please pay TOTV a visit.

After years of writing, I have begun to realise that some of my stories do not naturally fit into a particular erotic website’s remit but virtually all share the same ethos, and that is an example of what I term “societal restriction”. What I mean by this is that most of the tales here involve a girl – or occasionally a man – who is forced to dress in restrictive and possibly humiliating outfits and engage in a relationship that is not entirely on her own choosing but which she does because the society in which she lives in expects it of her. This can be from the woman who wears a blinding veil because she is told that is what her Creator likes to the debutante lacing down to 15 inches because society says that is what she must attain to make a good marriage to the citizen of an oppressive dictatorship who is forced to service her political leader because the state tells her that that is her duty. These stories are all about power and the abuse of it as well as lashings and lashings of restriction.

What they are not about however, are consensual slave-master stories. There are thousands of those out there and I’m afraid, they do little for me. Neither are they about restrictions that are not aesthetically pleasing: I like monogloves because as well as being restrictive, they are beautiful. All my girls are made beautiful though, at the same time, pretty miserable as well.

So please, enter my world and enjoy….

    • Yes, I really like your story about Elizabeth, extreme tightlacing at its best. Please write more along such lines in the future. The latest story that I have just begun posting may contain elements that you like.

    • I read your story and very much enjoyed it. Can’t wait for more although in the future, I do hope you will consider writing something with a far more reluctant/unwilling heroine 😉

  5. Hi,
    are you going to publish Daniel’s story in this blog?
    How about a rendezvous of some of your charmingly dressed characters a Paris a le Café Couture? 😉

    • I think it’s up to Daniel where he publishes his stories. I am happy to post it here but he would probably get more readers on LISA. Paulo, please expand on your idea re. le cafe couture… it could be interesting.

      • Hello David, thanks for your feedback. I am happy to say that you might like what happens to Lily in the story… Paulo, thanks again for your wonderful praise, rest assured it will be posted soon on LISA. I like to get the story just right, and making changes here and there, adding details and improving the dialogue etc. I think you will like it!

  6. In the 11th chapter of “Edward and Elizabeth”, the married couple had dinner a Café Couture a Paris where all ladies wear face veiles and “they were firmly laced to their utmost”.
    The idea of a fashionable place in Paris where people devoted to the more extreme corset discipline meet themselves is somewhat intriguing.
    It would be a perfect place where a character from a Dave story casually meet a Daniel’s one.
    Obviously such Cafe should have many solutions in order to offer some kind of confort for such exquisite but demanding clientele! 😉

    • Nye,

      I have a few ideas including an idea for a new Ladies of Leisure story which could be good in its own right but also I want to explore the concept of leaving the ending open and asking different authors to fill in their own (presumably unhappy) endings for the heroine. All I need now is the time to write it… not easy with so much cricket on 😉

      In the meantime I am posting ‘Mastana’, a story inspired by Allan Alldiss’ work. It was originally intended for ‘Tales of the Veils’ but Bo_Emp thought it more suited to this site so here we are.

      Enjoy and thanks for visiting!

  7. I’m glad you saw my House of Alisha products in SecondLife. As you might have guessed I was also the author of the Alisha Takes the Veil and other stories a long time ago and it seemed a good name to use for my SecondLife product line. I did e-mail you when I used the Lady of Leisure concept but I think the e-mail might have been an old one. The outfits come with a link to your stories as they really need to be read to get the best from them.

  8. Hello Dave! I firstly read your stories from Staylace dot com about one or two years ago. Thank you for your writing and I really like them. I just read your Gabrielle van Hessel and her Diary. In that story you mentioned Chinese footbinding but Gabri hadn`t been footbinded because of the stench of the small foot. As I like the footbinding (also I like corset, hobble skirt and high heels) and have some diffirent thoughts from you. I`d like to introduce mine to you. I have sent you a email to your yahoo email adress.

    • Hi Nyenor – Unfortunately my health got in the way again but I hope to have something in a while. I have several 1000 pages of stuff written which needs editing down into something more readable.

  10. Some of your corset stories are written fairly well, but tend to be heavy in dialogue. In my view this slows up the plot. Would you consider writing stories with less dialogue and more description of the effects of particular kinds of tight lacing? Thanks. TR

    • Thomas, thanks for the feedback. Criticism like that is always useful for me to receive and try and improve my tales and I shall bear it in mind. My only problem with describing the tight-lacing more is that this is not something that I have direct personal experience of, unlike say, the veiling which is described in my tales on TOTV.

  11. Response to Bfm on Alisha Earns Her Veil
    Alisha and her friends in the harem spend months zoning in and out of conciousness under the palace floor when Alisha suddenly comes round in a hospital bed. Assuming she has been ill in the palace she calls out, only for Javed to appear. He tells her the doctors thought she was beginning to come out of the coma she suffered from the fainting at the end of Alisha Takes the Veil when she actually knocked her head. Then over the next few days all the other participants of Alisha Earns Her Veil appear at her bedside and she realises her sub-conscious must have been aware of them all and was fitting them into her dreamworld as best as she could.

  12. For those interested in veiling (yes wrong Dave Potter site but no comments page on the new TOTV WordPress site), German company Pidax film have released the Natashia Kinski classic Harem on DVD at last !! Watching her being laborously prepared and then shuffling her way through the palace alone and totally veiled is still one of my all time ‘wish that was me’ film scenes.
