Original contents of this chapter was
a series of extracts from letters in The Fetters Files
your letter. So, Jack ///// in San Diego suggested you should write
me. Haven't heard from him for several years. Is he still working as
an Escape Artist? Last time he contacted me it was to ask how to make
a jacket ESCAPE-PROOF! Did he follow my instructions - and is he still
stuck in it? No, he was wrong when he told you that I ... know all
there is to know about strait-jackets. I'm still learning, and enjoying
the process. You ask if I am Seriously into strait-jackets. Now what
does that mean? I guess the answer is "Yes, I definitely am seriously
into strait-jackets ... the more seriously, efficiently applied the
better, and as often as possible.
Your very general
questions might have opened a Pandora's Box because you failed to specify
exactly where your interest lies ... are you a budding Escapologist
or does the idea/image of being strapped into, strapping someone into
or just watching it happen rings bells in your brain ... Because Yes,
I'm turned on to it, as you put it ... but it's not nearly as simple
as that. Are we talking sexual, sensual, erotic? Maybe so, maybe no.
There are all sorts of boosts and blasts and tingles which happen spontaneously
outside our conscious control. So, to give you a better perspective
on the subject and at the risk of freaking you out, here follows a random
collection of extracts (Thank God for Word Processors) from the FETTERS
File on Strait Jackets. Make of them what you will!
What a lot
of questions. Hope I can supply at least a few answers. First you should
read the FETTERS Information Sheet Notes on Strait-jackets.
This was first written fifteen years ago to save me having
to answer the same questions over and over. However, the sheet is drastically
in need of revision and expansion. My Strait-jacket information file
has got so fat I could write a book ... but don't hold your breath.
So, for what they're worth here are the original brief Notes ... followed
by other info which may be relevant to your particular interests ...
maybe not, so just concentrate on aspects of the subject that do appeal
to your tastes ... or lack of taste! As reassurance, you ain't the only
one in the world to be Turned on by ......
