Whether you are reading a story or having a wank, a strong visual image of what each character looks like in your Mind's Eye, can make the whole experience much more vivid.

For most people, the face is the starting point before getting around to other phsyical essentials. Type-casting is something all actors know about - having the right look is what really matters. Also, attitude is usually written in the face.
The look in the eyes often tells it's own unspoken story.

Whatever scenario you have in mind, whether you imagine being involved with the characters or just watching the action, having a strong image as a reference point can make the scene really come alive.

Choosing types you prefer to fill each role in a scenario can, as a process, be stimulating in iteself. Finding faces that you'd like to see involved in the action might lead to you building your own file of lusty players for future reference.
Images from around the internet can soon turn into a useful mental casting directory.

Particularly when you're inventing a scenario from scratch, you're in the director's chair - directing the action. So - director's get to select the 'talent'.
Old jokes about the casting couch, and the director or writer auditioning prospective actors or actresses in bed, is only a step away from what this page is about. Think about it - and have fun with it.

 

   


ILLUSTRATED STORY FILES:
As an example, I've recently been putting together printer-friendly text files of some of my stories. With these I've been adding my choice of a face for each character ... but leaving the door open for people to substitude their own chosen faces.

RIDE TO GREENVILLE is an examble of my personal 'casting'.
The main characters are a farm boy from rural California, a British biker touring the area and the farm boy's elder brother.

Guess which is which - or find your own faces to fit the story.

   


'THE FEICE MECHANIC', my story based on New York artist Joe T's drawing is discussed in STORYLINES & STORYBOARDS.
Joe's single-frame picture shows a garage mechanic, having trussed-up a biker,
leaves him saying "Be right back. Need more tools for THIS job".

I discussed suitable actors to fill the two parts - and the Mechanic might be either ...

NEW STORY
As a result of the recent web pages about building your own real-life stories into jerk-off fantasies (see STORY BUILDING), an Australian site visitor sent me a scenario which almost happened to him, but not quite. We exchanged some wishful-thinking ideas - and I then turned his near-miss experiences into a hot story.

Because he figured in the real-life event, the original correspondent might be shocked to find himself and others in his story looking the way I have cast the characters.

A young Aussie film actor and his mate, and a low-life character are required for my 'Theatre of the Mind's Eye" version of his story. Below are pictures I pulled from my existing personal turn-on file of photos.
When you read the story you might like to substitute your own choices.

Two of these photos are face shots clipped from much larger pictures,
the dangerous third character still is not fixed in my mind.
