SCROLL FOR LIST
If you’ve enjoyed The Pygmalion Syndrome (and why not?!) and you’re looking for more, here’s where to find it. Robot, statue, mannequin, doll, gay, straight, lesbian and all points between...it’s all here! I’ve tried to be as comprehensive as possible, but if you don’t see a site here that you think should be included, please tell me about it.
Sites linking back to this one are indicated by Reciprocal Link banners. However,
a few of the links point to obsolete addresses and are now indicated as
Outdated Reciprocal Link.
PLEASE NOTE: In case it isn’t clear to you by now, some of the stories and artwork featured in these sites contain nudity and/or explicit sexual content. If you feel you are liable to be offended by these sites, then please do not follow the links to them.
23 JANUARY, 2017:
Trying to get things up to date. Alex the Great's ASFR Gallery no longer has images available, so I’ve removed the entry. One of R. T. Edwards’ sites and The ASFR Master List have gone offline; however, I’m hoping to repost the latter here. The Medusa Realm has been restored at p-synd.com for some time, but I’m only just now updating the entry on this page. Finally, Queen-of-Kinpun, a small Japanese bodypaint site, is offline but fully cached at the Wayback Machine. Any out of date links that haven’t been fixed in this update will be dealt with shortly... I hope........
19 AUGUST, 2014:
NEW: Living Statues Immobilized on Tumblr.
Naga’s Den is once more updating, and something seems to be
happening with the Forum, although it's not fully back online yet.
30 JULY, 2014:
The LTBSA is currently in the process of restoration. All the stories up to December 24, 2012 are now back online here, except for a handful of Cobalt Jade stories that she’s withdrawn from free reading because she wants to issue them as commercial e-books. (Her new site, cobaltjade.com, will have all the details once it’s up and running, but until then you can e-mail ceejay ^t cobaltjade d()t c<>^^.) Dmuk now has access to the server and will bring the site up to date as soon as he’s able. Ultimately he’s hoping to link it to the many-realms domain name so anyone going there will be automatically redirected.
26 MAY, 2014:
A much-overdue update. Reporting the sad loss of the Stuckposing and Naga’s Den Forums (though the Den itself remains online), but also updating the link for RM PhotoArt and very belatedly adding an entry for The ASFR Wiki.
22 JULY, 2012:
Added link to Reverse Pygmalion (no relation!) on Tumblr. Also revised and simplified the categories a bit. the “Cobwebsites” and “Static sites“ categories have now been merged into “Static and cached sites”.
17 JUNE, 2012:
The Living Statues site is back. Not sure how exactly when it returned, but I’m very happy to welcome it back.
15 JUNE, 2012:
The cached and revised Hall of Statuary site finally joins Pygmalion Syndication! Let all the peoples of the Earth join hands in celebration!
There are now numerous ASFR artists using deviantART, including quite a few familiar and unfamiliar names. If you’ve spotted any that I’ve missed, then as always please let me know.
Bob the Retarded Basilisk | Marble Gallery
ArgoForg | CMQ | Rastatue
Those three sound vaguely familiar.
Anime artist. Some good petrifications, but you’ll need to search to find them all.
medieval-wizard | natashystone | navarr0jones
Three photomanip artists.
Original anime art. Link is to Petrification gallery.
Almost insanely prolific ASFR CGI artist.
Another CG artist. ASFR and mind control.
|THE LEGACY OF TIMELESS BEAUTY ARCHIVE|
Stories, m/f, f/f, m/m
Without a doubt the Legacy of Timeless Beauty (LTBSA) is THE biggest and best archive on the net for stories of living statues, living mannequins and robotized people. Mainly features female protagonists but there’s some male material as well.
NOW HOSTED AT P-SYND.COM. As of late July 2014 only the stories up to Christmas 2012 have been reposted, but Dmuk now has admin privileges and will restore the rest as soon as he’s able.
The idea of an ASFR wiki has been around for a while, and now it’s here. The wiki concentrates on four types of transformation (Statues, Ice, Flat and Time Stop) as depicted in visual media (Live Action: Movie, TV Show, Commercial, Music Video; Animated: Cartoon, Anime; Drawn: Comic, Manga, Webcomic; and Video Game). Many of the entries are still a bit incomplete and could certainly use a bit of wiki love, but it’s not a bad start.
|LIVING STATUES IMMOBILIZED TUMBLR|
Photoblog, nudity, no sex, f
The offocial description reads: “This blog is dedicated to women who have been frozen by the "Immobilizer" device from the Living Statues series of stories. Those stories can be found here.”
The blog features photos of girls in ‘immobile’ poses, with captions describing their situations. Well worth checking out.
Image archive, cg art, f/f
The ever-popular Drake’s zipped archive of “Medusariffic Magazine” and other art projects. Absolutely essential viewing for ASFR and freeze fans!
|CRINKLESTEIN’S PHOTOBUCKET SITE|
EROTIC CONTENT WITHDRAWN
Crinklestein’s site used to feature his stony and metallic transformation imagery (among other things). Now there’s nothing there but other things. He also has a deviantART site
|NAGA’S DEN | NAGA’S DEN FORUM FORUM REBOOTING...|
Art, f, m, f/f
Naga is half human and half-serpent. She(?) is also a talented cartoonist whose work shows influences from such science fiction artists as Tim Kirk and Phil Foglio.
In addition to her transformation artwork, clean and otherwise, there’s “The A-List”, a fairly comprehensive although dated listing of adult transformation sites (including the long-obsolete URL for this site). Anyway, check out her site - she’s ’armless enough (ouch!!!)
As of August 2014 the site is once more updating, though it's now ad-supported, and the Forum seems to be in the proces sof rebuilding.
|FETISH IMMOBILITY MEDIA SHARING BOARD|
Videos and images, f
A message board for sharing videos of living mannequin, statue, robot and similar scenes from TV shows, music videos, films and adult videos.
|STUDS IN STONE|
Stories, art, photomanips, messageboard, m, m/m, f/m
Now fully updated with user-uploadable content and integral message board. LOGIN REQUIRED - for access contact freyr AT dslextreme DOT com. Studs in Stone features stories and art related to men getting frozen, mannequinized and robotized, usually by other men, occasionally by dominant women.
Stories, illustrated, m/m
Dave’s site features some neatly minimalist design (including some eye-hurtingly small font sizes!) and a variety of gay transformation stories including some statue TFs. These stories feature explicit content. Some of them are accompanied by explicit photos of naked men. As always, if you think you’d be offended, look elsewhere.
Japanese site featuring a gallery of frozen manga girls (follow the Illustrations link) as well as lots of links to Japanese and English language freeze and wam sites. I don’t know exactly what it says about this site, but according to my site stats it’s one of my biggest traffic generators, so thanks in Japanese...
|THE LIVING MANNEQUIN CIRCLE|
News, photos, no sex
SITE OFFLINE; BLOG STILL ONLINE,
The Living Mannequin Circle is dedicated to those tireless individuals [who stole their tires? - Ed] who spend hours at a time posing as display mannequins. The site includes (fully clothed!) pictures and articles about this fascinating art.
Comic, no sexual content
NOW COMPLETE. Idle Minds is a comic by Ian Samson about a girl who is turned into a statue so she can spy on an evil dictator. But will she be able to stay sane while her mind is locked in a stone body - and if she does, what will the experience teach her?
|BODY PAINTING SITES|
Photos, m, f, nudity
Photos, video, m, nudity, masturbation
Two sites by Renigaed. I previously reported that the Living Statues site had been cybersquatted, but it’s back, large as life and sporting all manner of inanimate-looking body finishes, along with a brief history of the art of statue posing.
Statufied is Renigad’s personal site, featuring poses by himself. Note that one of the site’s embedded videos includes male masturbation. Of course we’re all adults here, but it’s still a little startling.
|RICHARDEDWARDS ON deviantART|
Photos, f, nudity
Richard T. Edwards’ original site is down but his Deviantart account is still online, featuring girls in gold and silver finishes. The quality is excellent, although some of the pictures are a bit small.
Photos, f, nudity
Yet another bodypaint photographer who likes portraying girls as statues and occasionally mannequins. Thanks to Guest for posting a message about this photographer on the old Medusa Realm Message Board. Now hosted at Model Mayhem. Be sure to select "Toggle worksafe mode: off" to see all thumbnails. Images open in new windows.
|RIHANNA: UMBRELLA VIDEO|
Music promo, f, nudity (no actual immobility)
How much of the silver-painted nudity in this video did the censors allow on the various music channels? I’ve only ever watched it online.
|STATIC AND CACHED SITES|
|THE MEDUSA REALM|
Art, photomanips, f, m/f, f/f
The largest collection of frozen girl photomanips on the web, including most of those feared lost in the 2007 crash.
|REVERSE PYGMALION on Tumblr|
Art, photomanips, f, m, m/f, f/f, m/m
Not affiliated with The Pygmalion Syndrome. This a Tumblr photoblog that collects all kinds of ASFR-related artwork, some of it highly NSFW, from all over the net: living statues, bodypaint, photomanips, comic art, real statues... and when I say all over the net, I do mean all over, including this site, Pygmalion Syndication cached sites, and my Flickr pages. Now I personally don’t mind if somebody reuses an image from my site, but I’m not sure how others whose work is used might feel. Also, being a Tumblr blog it has rolling updates and no cataloguing system, meaning that if you find something interesting there this week it may have slipped several pages down by next week or next month and it’ll take forever to find it again. All that said, there is all sorts of material there that you may not have seen, so it’s worth checking out.
|GREAT GIFT OF SLEEP by Shon Richards|
I love this story. Belerra and Lorelei are among the passengers in suspended animation aboard a starship. Belerra has programmed the system to wake them both once a year, but not to revive Lorelei’s voluntary muscles....
This story has the kind of plot I could have killed for, but as far as I can tell it’s the only one by Shon Richards to feature erotic paralysis. Sigh.
|THE COBALT JADE WEBSITE|
Stories, illustrated, m/f, f/f
Cobalt Jade is one of the most talented erotic authors on the Web today, but unfortunately she’s also notoriously slow at updating.
On her site you’ll find her epic novel “The Black Pearl of Pharazion”, which features all kinds of bondage including transformation into statues; you’ll also find her superheroines saga “Paragon Versus Plastica” and the thrilling Arabian Nights-style adventure “The Tale of Lassok and Zairbhreena” (seven years in the writing!), in which a beautiful princess is transformed into a statue. Can her beloved prince save her from all manner of perils?
|THE MASTER LIST OF|
NOTE: this site is now offline, but I have all of the original pages cached and am hoping to post them here in the near future. Compiled by WK with the help of numerous contributors, the ASFR Master List is a comprehensive listing of living statue, living mannequin, freeze and robot scenes in movies, TV, music videos, animation, comic books and literature. Unfortunately another project that seems to have fallen by the wayside, but still useful as a reference tool.
|GORGON ART | GORGON ART YAHOO! GROUP|
Stories, art; m/f, f/f
SITE DELETED IN 2010. YAHOO! GROUP STILL ONLINE.
Gorgon Art, “The Hub of Inanimate Creativity,” showcased original art and fiction by some of the most talented people in the field. And me. No updates since 2005 and now deleted; the darkeragepress domain has been squatted by one of those damned parking sites. The Yahoo! Group remains active, though.
|STORIES BY LOST BOY|
His own stories, m/f; hosted stories m/f, f/f
Lost Boy’s site features his stories about soul-sucking succubi and carnivorous trees. There’s a bit of statue material too, and lots of stories by other authors, either linked from his site or hosted locally, which cater for an interesting variety of tastes. Sadly this now looks abandoned and may be not long for this world. Some of the front page images have gone AWOL, which is never a good sign. If you’re interested in any of the stories linked from this site, now’s the time to start harvesting links before they vanish.
MR SANMAN STORIES
CG art, m, m/m
Brian 56321’s new male art site. If you’ve seen his illustrations for my stories Mist in Stone and The Boy who Stood Still you’ll know how good he is already. (And if you haven’t then why not?) Brian is also selling high-quality prints of the site images and original commissions.
“Welcome to Rent-A-Dude.com. This is a store like no other in the world.
Here we offer a huge collection of the hottest men, transformed into a wide assortment of various objects for your viewing pleasure. They are available for daily rental, or for your purchase.
Our collection ranges from immobile objects such as statues, mannequins, and rubber dolls, to poseable miniature action figures, life-size posters, one-of-a-kind furniture, and controllable robots.”
In adition the site now features ASFR transformation stories by Mr Sanman.
Gold bodypaint, explicit nudity.
A very small and rather old bodypainting site. Just two gold-painted models with one page each. Still, worth a look. The original is now down, but fortunately the Wayback Machine has the whole thing.
Over the years I happen to have cached content from a few sites that were
deleted, and reposted it here on my own webspace for the sake of posterity.
|PLANET OF THE AMAZONS|
Part One | Part Two | Part Three
(15 pages per part)
CG photostory, robot, f/f, nudity, sex
Here’s a story, profusely illustrated in Poser art. When naked female androids invade a planet of naked lesbian warrior women, who will come out on top? (PS Did I mention that they’re all naked? As in really naked? As in totally, completely and absolutely naked? Oh, yes, so I did.)
As well as appealing to robot fans the story also includes some ecstatic paralysis. Apparently the story is by Pluto, who’s very into the whole female combat thing. At least in this story there’s no actual blood or death, although some of the androids get more than dented. The original was posted on three separate free webhosts, two of which got deleted, so I took the liberty of reposting it here. If the author happens to see this, no copyright infringement is intended.
Game scenarios, illustrated
“This rather modest website exists to bring together the authors working on the serial shared fiction story entitled "Total Immersion", abbreviated as "TI". The concept is simple; bring together a team of writers well-versed in story telling in the ASFR genre, offer them an intriguing cast of characters, and let them loose in a playground of perils that can turn people into statues, waxworks, mannequins, or other immobilized figures. A collaboration will be formed to create the initial starting point, after which individual segments will be written be separate authors. Everyone will come together again for the finale. The completed story will then be electronically published on the net.”
Only it wasn’t. Did everyone just get bored with it?
Stories, m/f, f/f
The former Medusa Realm story site, edited by Panic. In response to a recent query by another ASFR fan, Panic posted a link to his original files. I also downloaded them and offered to host them online, so here they are.
|ALL UNDER CONTROL!|
Stories, m/f, f/f
EHY’s site featuring his android and statue stories. As the title suggests, the key theme is control fantasies, not all of them sexual. EHY is a writer who knows how to put words and plots together, which definitely makes his site worth checking out.
|THE ASFR COLLECTIONS|
Story recommendations, m/f, f/f
Various contributors’ lists of their favourite ASFR and related stories. Now back online and open for contributions.
|THE LIVING DOLL HOUSE|
Art, photos, stories, poetry, f, m/f
CACHED VERSION OF DELETED SITE.
Living dolls, mannequins and statues; stories, poetry, art and photomanips. Some of the external links were obsolete, though not all of them, and there are a few missing files, but there’s still some interesting stuff here.
|STATUEPHILE HOME PAGE|
Articles, illustrations, f, f/f.
CACHED VERSION OF DELETED SITE.
SOME IMAGES MISSING.
This is one of the older (and smaller) ASFR sites and was deleted by AOL (which would make it America Offline, maybe?), so I’ve decided to rescue as much of it as I could. With grateful acknowledgements to the Internet Archive Wayback Machine, I’ve now retrieved ALL of the original pages, though a few of the images are still missing. There’s some interesting content, including the Fans of Frozen Women Poll Results from April ’97, in which we get to find out what ASFR fans really want!
|THE TECHNOSEXUALITY, PYGMALIONIST & MIND CONTROL FETISH FAQ 3.0|
Factual, illustrated, G to R, f, m/f
Everything you always wanted to know about robot fetishism and agalmatophilia but were afraid to ask.... Superbly researched and written by WinterRose and profusely illustrated. The essential guide to what turns US on!
NOTE: I originally posted this as an unofficial mirror, but now that the original has gone this is the de facto official version, and it has links from Wikipedia and other “serious” research sites.
|I WAS TURNED TO STONE|
Story, m, no sex.
CACHED VERSION OF DELETED PAGE.
It seems that back in the mists of time, somebody found a little story called “I Was a Living Statue” on a newsgroup and decided to have some fun with it. Despite the apparently jaundiced attitude to agalmatophilia I’m grateful to the person who decided to preserve this little gem for Posterior...er, I mean posterity. The original page is long gone, but I managed to save all of it except the wallpaper which I’ve replaced with a more or less similar design.
|WORLD OF PHANTASIE|
NO LONGER UPDATED.Argo Forg’s epic fantasy story in several chapters.
“Enter now, into a world of ancient times, when the wonder of magick was everywhere and men of strange power walked the Earth. Journey to a far-off land, where beauty and danger lurk around every bend in the winding road or a flowing brook. Heed ye, of the perils that accompany foolishness and the rewards that come to those that choose... wisely.”
This site was one of the casualties of a previous Many-Realms crash, so with Argo’s permission I reposted it as a mirror, and now that Many-Realms seems to have crashed and burned permanently it looks like it’s just as well that I did.
It’s another Argo Forg project that is now on permanent hold, although Argo has indicated that if other authors want to continue the saga they are welcome to do so.
|THE HALL OF STATUARY|
Stories, Art, Articles, f, m/f, f/f, occasional m, m/m
CACHED VERSION OF DELETED SITE, WITH A FEW REVISIONS
Argo Forg’s Hall of Statuary was one of the sites that first introduced me to the wonderful world of ASFR. It’s taken me longer than anticipated, but I’m now immensely pleased and proud to announce that the site is back online! There are inevitably a few omissions, mostly in the form of images, and some of the information on the site is out of date. Nevertheless, the Hall has been preserved for posterity, so please go and check it out.
