Other Related Fetishes

Have I touched on everything here? Not by a long shot.  The things folks are aroused by are only limited by their imaginations, basically meaning there IS no limit. There's the Superhero Fetish.  The Sleepy Fetish.  And all SORTS of more well known kink that the above interests cross over into. As with anything, follow your nose and find what you're interested in. If you want to look into some of these other kinds of thing, Here's a few links to start your explorations with...

You likely have anyway if you're already familiar with the internet. If you're not, I hope you enjoy your trip. And I hope I've helped.

People who were nice enough to contribute their opinions, questions and answers

"I'd like to thank the academy..."
                                       -Tyler Durden, 'Fight Club'

     You really can't have a Frequently Asked Questions unless people actually ASK questions.  And like the Baz Luhrman song goes, the rest was the thoughts and opinions based on my own rambling experience. When composing this document, I consulted the original ASFR FAQ first. So of course the first person that I need to thank here is Robotdoll.  Without his efforts to drag Technosexuality kicking and screaming into the daylight (or is that klanking and screeching?), so many of us would still be out in the cold, and we certainly might not be the community we are today. 

     Boris Ludmenkov needs to be thanked for the contribution of his fine essay, 'Mind Control:  An Essay' to get an idea of the sorts of thing I ought to mention. His work on that essay was as inspiring and impressive today as it was back in the day.

As well, the past efforts of Mannequin Lover, and the continued efforts of people like Simon Bar Sinister, Robo-Lover, D.Muk, Href, Noidguy, Dosman, Voyer, Monza, Vengeance, KingJeremy, Brad Poe, Android69, Keraptis, and yes, you too Kishin.  ^_^

     ...And especially Silver Karakuri, Flambeau and my favorite kitty, Hepzibah.  My faith in my fellow beings was restored by you three. 

Where the pictures came from
and who made them.

     In an attempt to be honest about the fair use of the images contained within this document, I have tried to make the effort to credit their creators, or at least the pages I downloaded them from before I used them in this document.  It's not ALWAYS possible however. It needs to be said that no profit is being realized from the dissemenation of this document. If you got it on a page that charged you money for access to it, the people running that page are stealing from you, me and the person that made these images in the first place.  And I'd quite appreciate the URL of the page so I can tell them to cease and desist and get my cut of the money they made from my writing and research.

Who is this WinterRose person anyway?

     WinterRose (originally WinterMute) became aware of the Technosexual, Mind Control, Pygmalionist and Doller communities in 1994 or 1995, such as they were, and contributed to the original ASFR FAQ by Robotdoll and Leem under the name 'Innocent'. He lurked for a while when he had no computer to call his own between 1996 and 1998, then started producing his own photomanipulations, writings and roleplay based technosexual characterizations in the #ASFR chatroom on IRC.  As he became more active in related ASFR and MC bulletin boards, he decided to become more prolific, or at least as productive as he could whilst trying to survive, and give back images and feedback to the community that had provided so much for him. 

     On, he contributed the bulk of his MC related Photoshop work.  Later he opened up a few Lycos clubs to fill the need for props for other photomanipuators to use in fetish image-alters, as well as an escape hatch for people in the related Yahoo groups to congregate at, should those groups suddenly vanish without trace.  There he provided reviews for new ASFR and MC fiction for a while. He has since worked on what inspiration calls him to do at any given moment. His more recent projects have been The Bestiary, a personal page based on his online persona, WinterRose the Gynoid.  More recently still he's worked on what promises to be a small novel length ASFR story, the FAQ you're reading now, and a page devoted to the production and free dissemination of MP3 readings of popular Technosexual and Mind Control fiction.  Even more recently, he was hypnotized out of his gourd by Fonteneau, in an erotic hypnosis show at the Fantasm 2003 convention in Atlanta. As of this writing, the rug burns are almost completely healed. Don’t ask. You really had to see it.

     WinterRose is a 31 year old caucasian male. He considers himself 98.5% heterosexual with an open mind to the remainder. He is active in his local BDSM community and identifies as a switch.  He has in his time been an actor, an author, a poet, an artist, an animator, an audio-performer, an editor, amateur hypnotist and hypnotic subject, and any number of other things one would think a person trying to find and focus their creativity might try their hand at. He maintains that more than 12 hours a day of Television, Porn, Cartoons and Japanese Animation, Comics, Alternative and Subversive Music, Videogames, Junk Food. Roleplaying, Movies, staring at a computer for most of his free time, and other things that most moral types say is bad for you can be destructive to personality and the imagination and offers himself as an example.
