Mommy Bubble 80's Dinnertime Retrospective

These were refreshingly simple to write.  I do like the challenge of doing the dialogues for Mennonite Madness, but, well, they are challenging.  And they do take a long time to write and edit.  Well, I guess I'll have to get used to it, since next week is Mennonite Madness week.  I like that I was able to bring back the bubble here.  Lest we forget, the pamphlet is about the dangers and evils of the Mommy Bubble.  Also, lest we forget (I forgot) today is 9/11.  Never 4get.

-------------------------------------


The picture for the first page is one that I like, because it features the two of them doing something that would be normal, if they weren't Lilians.  Also, I like the mom's face.
The first thing that I want to discuss, with the narrative, is just how traditional their relationship actually is.  He's more or less taking the role of the husband, going out to "work", while the mother stays home and cooks and cleans (she's working, but we barely ever see her doing that).  Now, given the Lilian feelings towards Patriarchy, and presumably, traditional arrangements, this is a bit odd.  This theme of an oddly traditional family structure is one that I want to kind of play with, now that we're heading into some of the final blocks of the Mommy Bubble 80's pamphlet.  The overall goal of the bubblers is to essentially create a sort of idyllic 1950's household, except with the father replaced by the son.  Think about this, what is a bubbled son supposed to do when he grows up?  Lay around and jack off to BOL mags?  No, he's supposed to get a job, and support his mother, who becomes/continues-to-be a housewife.  The fact that she's in charge of the relationship, is the only difference, and that, honestly, isn't much of a difference.

So she's cooking dinner, in her naked apron, when her son comes up behind her, and hits her with the gravity squeeze.  By the way, yes, these are in present tense.  I feel like we're kind of in what is happening, rather than relaying things that are in the past.  So we're (for now) out of specific moments in their past, and into things that they do on a pretty regular basis.  So, gravity squeeze.  She's wearing a naked apron, so she's presumably open to this sort of thing, unless she really has become a nudist.  He gropes her, and wants sex.  Well, she's cooking dinner, for both of them.  She's busy.  Sex may not be the big thing on her mind, and the phrase "oblige his lusts" was essentially supposed to kind of convey that she isn't completely on board with fucking him at that exact moment.  She's trying to cut her suspiciously Japanese looking radishes, with her suspiciously Japanese looking knife.  So then why is she wearing the naked apron?  Well shit, maybe she's a nudist now, she kind of says that she likes being naked in an earlier page.
At any rate, there's kind of mixed messages coming from this narrative.  She's quite positive, generally, and you get the message that she enjoys what's happening.  She frames it as a "break" from cooking.  She says that the son is free to come up behind her and "relieve" himself, which does not have a particularly romantic connotation, and she says that she's "obliging him", which, again, not particularly romantic.  Remember these themes.

The guide content for the first page was originally food service safety trash, and you can read that in the picture page, below the real text.  I decided that it was shit, so I canned it.  I'm glad I did, because this guide content really takes the block, overall, in an interesting direction.
Heather really goes into the future plans for the bubble, here.  She's talking about the 13-18 range, where boys are at their most horny.  The entire bubbling process, really, is for that block of time, since it's probably the most important, when it comes to developing relationship skills for the future.  If a boy doesn't have any contact with the opposite sex during that time, he's going to have a very difficult time dating, later in life.  Under the bubbling model, the mother is essentially keeping the son from dating, and learning how to interact with the opposite sex.  When he grows up fully, he'll essentially be a sex god, but he won't know the first thing about actual relationships, so he'll most likely never even get to the fucking part.
Note the language in this guide portion.  Relief, relief, relief.  That's the big word, here.  The mother is essentially acting as a cum receptacle for her son, which is an incredibly ugly thought, but when you think about it, that's probably how you'd keep a kid like that around.  It wouldn't work on a man, since he'd basically just say, "yeah, she'll fuck me regardless, so whatever" but on a boy, who hasn't had any other experiences, it's super effective.

The second page picture is one that is what it is.  I like it, I guess.  I'm not a huge fan of that position, but I feel like it does its job, particularly for what we're discussing in the narrative and guide.  Very "prostitute-esque", without a lot of eye contact.  It's the sort of thing you'd expect to see in an alleyway in Detroit.
The narrative here continues the mother's, well, I don't want to say subjugation, but it was kind of written that way.  The phrases "present myself for his lust", "pounding my pussy like it's a toy", and "deposit his seed into my womb", were all meant to invoke more objectifying ideas.  Not exactly the most Lilian themes in the world, right?  Not particularly romantic.  Well, you could always say that this is just a quickie, and quickies are fun, and all that, but let's kind of just ignore those thoughts for now.  These are the Lilians, and they don't do "present myself for his lusts".  They're a femdom cult, and this is not femdom.  Her post-coital demands don't make it femdom, either, but we'll get to that soon.

The guide content here acknowledges that what Ellen is doing is very controversial, but overall, is supportive.  Essentially, the idea is that the son is supposed to be the slave of the mother, and so, the mother should be the one who decides when, where, and how, they have sex.  Not so, says Heather.  Heather says that the son is, yes, a slave, but at the same time, the mother should be a good steward of that slave.  She shouldn't be a despot, who tells the son what to do, and makes all sorts of demands, just flat out.  She should give him love (sex), and then use his loving feelings, after the sex, to essentially guilt him into doing what she says.  As to whether this would work, I'd say, probably only for a mother, or someone who inspired a similar level of adoration in someone, and only if that someone was the sort who got attached after sex, as opposed to detached, after sex.
But anyway, the guide content does a callback to the covenant here, even to the point of using the same color scheme.  I like that I was able to tie the covenant page into this page.  The last line wasn't really necessary, but I feel like it kind of adds a bit of harshness, that these final blocks need.  The bubbling system essentially turns the mother into a fuckslave to the son, who is, in turn, a payslave, to the mother.  Slightly dystopic, but really, that's what the Daughters of Lilith project is all about.

Woooo, another week finished!  Next week, we'll be doing Mennonite Madness.  City Bus Flashing and Handjob on Monday, and Union Hall Rimjob and Footjob on Friday.  Mommy Bubble 80's will be doing Before and After School Sex, on Wednesday.
