TOPIC & TERRITORY

AUTHORITY FIGURES
and Law Enforcement


     


Lots of different forceful characters here,
men from all walks of life with the power to insist.
In terms of fantasy-fulfilment and power-exchange game-playing,
icons of power can feed the imagination.

Check out several recognisable categories below.

POLICE AND PRISON
HARRY HOUDINI spent his professional life challenging law enforcement officers to do their worst. From Berlin to the American West this Escape Artist pitted his wits and expertise against men who's job (or hobby) it was to take control and keep it.

Today, many criminals end up on the wrong side of the law simply because they need somebody to challenge.
Uniformed Authority Figures are a natural opponent and the imagery continues to stimulate a lot of different reactions.

MILITARY POWER
Military personnel policing servicemen or civilians can produce some powerful Authority Figure imagery.

Training can include a wide range of opportunities for personal challenge and counter-challenge. Information about genuine training manuals / videos can fire the imagination. Authentic material is accessible from several Internet sources via links. But, in the Houdini context, images and text stored here can be a jumping off point for fantasy or 'simulated' reality.

TEACHERS, COACHES & TRAINERS

Schoolroom authority today is not what it was. Strict discipline imposed by cane, strap and ruler wielding school teachers is a fantasy well catered for on Corporal Punishment web sites. Here, control and resistance to controllers offers lots of alternatives.

Particularly in any physical fitness regime, a tough authoritarian is essential when serious effort is demanded. Degrees of encouragement and punishment are all a matter of personal choice. Examples of harsh team building can make inspiring reading. Submissions will be welcomed.

MEDICAL AUTHORITY
In a physical health situation even the most junior official has power. Patient behaviour and comfort, freedom of movement, even consciousness or unconsciousness can be strictly controlled; permission can be granted or withheld.

In terms of psychological management, the control situations can be even more dramatic.

OTHER AUTHORITY FIGURES?
(files to describe and expand on)

EMPLOYERS & BUREAUCRATS
While considering authority, the power of some employers is greater than we care to admit. In the context of this site it might be interesting to document some extreme alternatives.
The unchallengeable authority of bureaucrats in modern society is one of the main causes of frustration. It's a fact of life. Fantasies of revenge/revolt might spark a challenging scenario in certain minds.

SOCIAL SUPERIORITY = AUTHORITY?
Wealth or social status bring with them traditional authority over others. This may have weakened, but power-trips based on social differences can be dynamic. Officers and subordinates and 'rough trade' scenarios can fit under this heading when it comes to fresh ideas.

MASTERS
The concept of a ‘Master' in homo-erotic power-game playing is very strong. Controlling, training, challenging, punishing are all elements well documented on other sites.
A more authentic master/slave tradition (or even master/servant relationship) is less acceptable as a reality today, but can be enjoyable to explore as fantasy - even as an seriously challenging simulated reality.
