I'm whispering this so your ears won't explode

One of the things I enjoy about this here blog is the way I use it to channel my thoughts into lighter directions. I sit here and I would really like to type something enraged about the presidential campaign, and about religion, sexism, racism… and I probably will one day.

Right now this is my break from all that, a respite from oil speculation, from the climbing price of lettuce, from politics, a place where I can concentrate on the diverting, nonsensical facets of human fantasies.

I grew up in a country where people hug and kiss often, nearly without provocation. Despite the fact that some of those kisses and hugs were a mask for ill feelings, I saw those public displays of affection as a wonderful thing among my people. I also assumed everyone in the world was like us.

When I moved to the States and was introduced to new people, I behaved as I had been raised to behave (i.e., I hugged and kissed the cheek of people I met). Oh, the scandalized looks I received! The horror on those people’s faces because I was being affectionate!

Well, maybe I’m exaggerating. They weren’t horrified, and I certainly never had anyone slowly back away from me, but I still perceived a surprised response for actions I thought perfectly normal. After a relative explained that sort of thing was not normal up here, not between strangers, I felt the fortune of having been raised to experience the sort of effusiveness and blatant affection that was my daily bread when I was a child.

There are studies that show touch has a calming effect in some humans. Of course there are also studies that show that mice can’t be trained to dress as humans do, but nowadays I’ve grown accustomed to physical contact from family members only, and if a stranger ever tries to hug me, well… I’ll have to cut him.* :)

I do love hugs. Hugging can give the impression the human body is very strong, but bodies aren’t strong. They are very delicate, as people falling off balconies constantly prove. My mind protest the fact that we can’t survive car crashes, sinking ships, and the occasional explosion; that skin and bone breaks if we fall off a tree, or are poked with a knife. I feel we are entitled to an exoskeleton, that evolution owes us one, after these millions of years and billions of deaths from simple forms of skin rupture.

The human body would be nothing but a smear painting the ground if a giantess applied the pressure of any part of her to it, and pushed it down. Squish. She could break the tiny twigs that are human bones (and probably liquefy some internal organs while she’s at it) with a well-aimed scream. And she could reshape plexiglass with her giantess-vision, and whip up a windstorm with her swaying hips, and bake a cake with her temperature, and-

Speaking of screams, it amuses me to no end that here is this group of people that shares fantasies of a size nature, and we can still be different as night and day in how we envision the particulars of interaction and communication between a very very tall woman that doesn’t exist, and a man that does (in my case, between a tiny bitty man that isn’t real, and me).

If I can imagine it, it works for me, and I don’t really give a rat’s ass about current laws of physics, especially when so little is known about the “realities” of this universe and its constitution. But it is entertaining to read all those suppositions and get a glimpse of the manner in which we mix some realities with what isn’t there.

Nah, a mega giantess is not too big to interact with her little, microscopic boyfriend. Why not? Because I said so. Yes, a two-mile-tall woman can feel the titillating touch of a six-foot-tall man. How? Dunno, but I said so. No, a giantess can’t have intimate relations with a building. Why can’t she? Because I said so.

*Not really.

  1. I share your view that the mega giantess genre quite literally lacks the human touch. By definition, a giantess or giant would be viewed as monstrous by the populace, and we are then into Godzilla territory. Fair play to those that like it, though I`m not one of them.

    Nor should people with any version of this fantasy get too bogged down in the scientific implications of it. There are huge questions presented biologically by a size change process, pun intended, but the very same sciencific wisdom says that bees cannot fly, and also does not know where most of the universe is. So there. Besides, I tend to prefer magic as a means of shrinking, as the costumes are far more interesting than white lab coats.

    The main reason I like shrinking over growth though, is intimacy, and ironically a dose of reality. The life of the woman would not change as such, and she is still subject to all the mental, moral and physical norms of real life. However, she wields absolute power over a shrunken man, or men, and could easily do so in secret. I find that basic premise far more interesting, varied and erotic than growth variants of the fantasy.


  2. Thanks for the comment, Talisman!

    Maybe I’m whispering far too quietly. :) What I meant to say is that I don’t think a mega giantess is ever too tall. I once had a dream I was twenty miles tall, and in my dream, my six-foot-tall boyfriend was certainly not too small.

    I will say that the general view is as you describe it, as I’ve mostly seen mega giantesses collaged as apocalyptic harbingers of death, and not so much of tender moments. Yes, she would be deemed a monster perhaps, but not by that single little guy that’s making eyes at her from his balcony.

    Romantic interaction has a “glass ceiling” a mega giantess easily shatters from her stratospheric height, the way I see it. I’m fully aware plenty of people will never see it my way, and that’s just fine with me. It’s great, the way we have all these different perspectives and tastes that made it so much fun for me to visit giantess boards in the past.

    Magic as a way of shrinking a man is the inspiration for a few collages of mine, though I’m just as big a fan of the ol’ syringe loaded with a shrinking formula. In my book, nearly everything in the world of giants and little people is good.
