Daily Sexy Musing: Sexy Costumes

3b11651d6225c9396b5362bd24806e99

With Halloween right around the corner, costumes are becoming a more relevant issue. A lot of kids are already contemplating what they’ll dress up as when they go trick-or-treating. Many more adults are probably contemplating what they can dress up as, either to attend a party or get a good laugh from someone.

It helps that more than a few of those adults will be seeking to dress as something overtly sexy. Sexy costumed versions of things have always existed, but it feels like they’ve become more mainstream in recent years. As a fan of looking sexy and dressing sexy, I’m all for it. I know it pisses off some people who are eager to get outraged over certain costumes, but those people don’t deserve our attention or sympathy.

For me, sexy costumes are even more relevant and not just because Halloween is coming soon. I just got back from another amazing day at New York Comic Con. Like in years past, I dressed up to share the experience with plenty of fellow cos-players. While my costume wasn’t that sexy, there were plenty of others who dare to push the envelope.

Sexy costumes aren’t specific to one time of the year. There’s really nothing from stopping anyone from wearing a sexy costume. When you have a lover who responds to it, then you have even more incentive. It’s fun. It’s playful. It can even be downright romantic. Between this, the Halloween spirit, and the New York Comic Con, sexy costumes are more than worthy of a Daily Sexy Musing. Enjoy!

We style our hair.

We put on a mask.

We smother ourselves with makeup, jewelry, and accessories.

We become someone else entirely.

It’s both liberating and refreshing, inhabiting the form of another. Whether born of fiction, history, or lore, we exchange our regular persona for something wildly different. Instead of blending in, we stand out. Nobody else looks, acts, and conducts themselves as we do. Our attire and demeanor is an aberration, but that’s exactly what makes it exciting.

In this new form, I feel a unique energy. Like tapping into a new source of power, I channel an outside spirit. This new persona dares to do things that I wouldn’t in my usual attire. I’ll cast you a deviant glance, implying deviant activities that you and I only contemplated in jest. Now, it’s serious. We’re not the same mundane lovers we once were.

We are superheroes saving the day.

We are monsters wreaking havoc.

We are villains causing chaos.

We are mythical figures come to life.

Filled with this energy and spirit, our love manifests in entirely new ways. I dare to be bolder, speaking in a voice that is not my own. You dare to match me every step of the way, sharing an intensity that gets my heart racing. It sends our passions into overdrive. The line between one persona and the other blurs.

Finally, it culminates.

Our new identities take over.

Our new passions are unleashed.

These costumes become more than elaborate attire. They are a new conduit for new passions. In this form, our love manifests in a very different way. It’s overwhelming, exhilarating, and even a little deviant. We know each other so well, but in these costumes, we realize just how much more there is to learn.

Jack Fisher’s Sexy Sunday Thoughts: New York Comic Con 2019 Edition

8FEDD293-4540-481A-83A6-ACFA2F753A7B

The last day of the New York Comic Con is a day of extended afterglow for life-long comic book fans. We’ve read the big headlines. We’ve taken in the spectacle. We’ve immersed ourselves in this wondrous celebration of comics, pop culture, and fandom. Our minds and bodies can only process so much joy. We need some time to soak it all in.

I hope that provides some appropriate context for my feelings at the moment. Having returned from another successful New York Comic Con, I can only do so much to put my sentiments into words. Every year I go, I worry that it won’t exceed the experience that I enjoyed in previous years. Every year, it still finds a way to get better.

This year gave me a fresh batch of treasured memories. I met some amazing people. I attended some awesome panels. I also got to spend some time in New York City, which is a treat in and of itself. There was so much to see and experience, but only a finite time to take it all in. Based on my experience, I like to think I got everything I could out of it.

Once again, I thank and celebrate the New York Comic Con for affirming my love of comics, superheroes, and the fans who help make it special. I also thank the amazing cos-players who give so much character and charisma to the event. You are all more than deserving of recognition for an edition of my Sexy Sunday Thoughts, and then some. Enjoy!


“Every popular sex act started as an act of deviance.”


“Even the most passionate act of lovemaking began with a dirty thought.”


“Orgasms are nature’s all-purpose anti-depressant.”


“Anyone who can fix a car, computer, or toilet is going to have some level of sex appeal to someone with little patience.”


“Masturbation isn’t something you learn as much as it is something you figure out.”


“A good night’s sleep is both a side-effect and a bonus of post-coital afterglow.”


“Technically, an orgy is the simplest manifestation of democracy if you count orgasms as votes.”


Another New York Comic Con is in the books. Between the upcoming slate of superhero movies and new upheavals in the comics, there’s plenty to look forward to. Expect me to appreciate, celebrate, and write about it all in the coming months. Thanks again, New York Comic Con! You make my year feel special.

The (Amazing) Sights, Spectacles, And Lessons Of New York Comic Con 2019

9FE52827-2897-4629-B24A-9FDE46A77E9A

Another New York Comic Con has come. Once again, I managed to experience it for a single day. While I would’ve loved to spend another day seeing everything I didn’t get a chance to see yesterday, it was an incredible experience. I enjoyed every minute of it and, like other New York Comic Cons before it, this one will be full of many treasured memories.

I could write several books, and even a couple sexy short stories, about all the things I saw while I was there. I attended panels, met incredible people, saw amazing costumes, saw some breaking comic book news, and even got a chance to connect with some real celebrities. I cannot overstate what a thrill that was.

New York Comic Con has always been so much fun, just as the entire city of New York always been fun. There are so many places to see and people to meet. I found myself running around the Jacob Javits Convention Center, trying to experience as much as I could. I like to think I took in as much as I can, given the constraints of time and only having a Friday pass.

By far, one of the best parts of New York Comic Con was seeing the costumes of fellow fans. This year might have been the most diverse, creative year yet. I saw plenty of typical costumes, like Batman, Superman, Deadpool, and the Joker. This year, however, had one of the most diverse set of costumes that I’ve ever seen.

It was so incredible that I nearly drained the batter on my phone, trying to get as many pictures as I could from those willing to share one. Here are just a handful of the ones I managed to get. Trust me when I say this is just a small sample of the creative passion I saw.

Every year, the fans who make these costumes find a way to surprise me. Next year, however, is going to be tough to be. That said, I’m sure the passion of these fans will help them find a way.

In addition to the costumes, New York Comic Con often leaves me with some unique takeaways that I could never get by just reading stories about it. Actually being there and seeing it first-hand will always have a more extensive impact. This year had some more nuanced lessons than previous years.

The first, and most apparent, lesson I learned is that the impact of anime is growing. This year, I saw more anime-inspired costumes than any previous year. I didn’t recognize all the anime that it came from, but there was definitely an uptick in anime costumes and that nicely reflects the growth of the genre.

The second lesson, which is more or less a reinforcement of what I’ve learned in previous years, is that most writers, creators, and celebrities are awesome in person. Many consider themselves fans, as well. I’ve interacted with plenty online, mostly through Twitter. They’re as nice in person as they are in real life.

I even had the privilege of meeting a few I’ve worked with. A while back, I reviewed “Swing Volume 2” after getting an advanced copy. While in artists alley, I had a chance to meet the writer, Matt Hawkins. He was an awesome guy and the insights he gave were incredible.

To those who think the details of that story were embellished or eroticized, I can attest that they weren’t. Everything Mr. Hawkins wrote about in that story was inspired by real people and real couples. I can’t thank him enough for sharing such insights and I’m already looking forward to Swing Volume 3.

The third lesson, which I guess is more an exercise in best practices, is that if you really want to get into a panel, you need to get in line at least 20 minutes early. While I managed to get into all the panels I wanted, the lines were long and I just barely got in.

For the advanced screenings of upcoming movies and cartoons, you need to be even more proactive. I was unable to get into a screening of “Wonder Woman: Bloodlines” or “Joker.” Those filled up very quickly and if I want to get in next year, I’ll have to be even more proactive.

There’s so much I experienced. There are many more things I wish I could describe, but it would take too much time and energy away from writing sexy short stories. I’ll just belabor that I had an amazing time. I saw so many amazing things and met so many awesome people. I’m already looking forward to going back next year.

Back (And Exhausted) From New York Comic Con 2019

9FE52827-2897-4629-B24A-9FDE46A77E9A

It was a long, eventful day, but it’s over now. I built my entire day around attending New York Comic Con 2019 and, without a doubt, it was a day well-spent. I saw so many amazing things. I met so many awesome people. Between the fans, the costumes, the panels, and the big news, there was just so much to experience. I’m still processing it all.

To be honest, it’s going to take a few days to fully appreciate what I experienced. That’s to be expected for the New York Comic Con. For as long as I’ve been going, it has always been this huge spectacle that overwhelms me with so many things I love. Every year I feel like it has to take a step back, it somehow surprises me.

This year was no exception. It was an incredible experience. Now, I’m exhausted and badly in need of some rest. As long and arduous as this day was, however, it was SO worth it.

On My Way To New York Comic Con 2019!

9FE52827-2897-4629-B24A-9FDE46A77E9A

It’s that magical time of year again! The New York Comic Con for 2019 has arrived! For lifelong superhero fans like me, this is like Christmas, the Super Bowl, Black Friday, and Halloween all rolled into one glorious event. I could write an entire book about how excited I am and it still wouldn’t get the point across.

I know I said that last year and the year before that. I’ll probably say it again next year. The sentiment will be the same. The New York Comic Con is one of my favorite times of year. It’s an event that’s near and dear to fans of superhero comics, movies, video games, and all things awesome. For that, it is special.

I hope to share plenty of details when all is said and done. Until then, excuse me while I soak in every glorious moment.

Jack Fisher’s Sexy Sunday Thoughts: New York Comic Con 2018 Edition

maxresdefault

It’s a great time to be a comic book fan and for once I’m not just referring to the glut of superhero movies flooding the market. This past weekend was New York Comic Con 2018 and, as I so eagerly documented, I had a chance to attend. As someone who writes extensively about comics and builds every Wednesday around reading them, this time of year is basically Christmas meshed with Halloween.

Every year, I go to New York Comic Con knowing that it’s a true testament to fandom. Say what you will about the “toxic fanbase” phenomenon that has emerged in recent years. There’s no denying the passion and dedication of those who attend the New York Comic Con where they can dress like their favorite character. Considering some of the time and effort some people put into their costumes, that passion is worth celebrating.

I could spend a whole week talking about all the wonderful sights and sounds of the New York Comic Con. I still couldn’t do it justice. Every year I go, the experience seems to expand. I meet new people. I discover new things. I get to share in the collective joy that comes with being a fan. For that, I’ll always be grateful.

After another eventful New York Comic Con, I don’t think I’ll surprise anyone by dedicating this week’s edition of my Sexy Sunday Thoughts to the experience. There’s a lot to celebrate in this golden era of superhero movies. I’m just glad I got to be part of it and add a little sexiness to the mix. Enjoy!


“A whore is a slut who is smart enough to get paid for doing what they’re already doing.”


“Logistically speaking, phone sex only became practical when phones began vibrating.”


“In terms of raw intimacy, lube is the most romantic gift you can give your lover.”


“Female breasts are one of the few things in the world that can be both a distraction and a motivator.”


“In terms of love and sex, the tongue is the most versatile body part.”


“Internet porn has created the first human society where everyone has access to cheap, abundant orgasms.”


“The difference between intimacy and debauchery is measured by the amount of fun the clergy doesn’t think you should be having.”


Another year has come. Another trip to the New York Comic Con is complete. Every year seems to raise the bar and I’m plenty willing to do my part. To the city of New York, the many comic companies I love, and those who wore overly-elaborate costumes, I sincerely thank you. You help give heart to these passions we share.

What I Learned At The “Dark Phoenix” Panel At New York Comic Con 2018

IMG_2742

There were a lot of wonderful moments at New York Comic Con this year. While I’ve already shared a few, it’s safe to say that the biggest highlight for me was being able to attend the panel for the “Dark Phoenix” movie. Since I’ve made my excitement and concerns about this movie very clear, I don’t think that should surprise anyone.

The panel itself was very well-attended. Anyone who claims that nobody is interested in this movie since Disney is buying Fox can officially piss off. As soon as Tye Sheridan and Sophie Turner walked out onto that stage, there was a huge cheer that echoed throughout the Jacob Javits Center. It was a really powerful moment.

I had to fight my way through a lot of equally-eager X-men fans to get a good seat. These pictures, by the way, are not taken from some comic reporting site. I took these with my phone and I’m very proud of how close I managed to get. It’s probably the closest I’ll ever get to celebrities like this for the rest of my life.

IMG_2737

While at the panel, I learned a few things of note that made me all the more excited about this movie. Some of those things have already been reported by some sites. Here are a few others I picked up on.


Sophie Turner and Tye Sheridan have great chemistry, more so than James Marsden and Famken Jansen did in the original X-men movie.

This was obvious by how how well they got along, how close they sat, and how much they smiled around one another. You can usually tell when an actor and actress don’t get along. It really shows and it tends to undermine the movie. If you don’t believe me, just look at how that worked out for Hayden Christiansen and Natalie Portman in “Star Wars: Attack of the Clones.


This movie will fully embrace the cosmic nature of the Phoenix Saga.

Those aren’t my words. That’s what Simon Kinberg said outright during the panel. He flat out admitted that “X-men: The Last Stand” did not do justice to the Phoenix Saga, which actually drew some cheers. He then made clear that the cosmic part of the Phoenix will be a big part of the movie and the footage they showed definitively proved that.

This is huge because anyone who claims this movie is just a remake of “X-men: The Last Stand” will not be able to say that with a straight face after seeing how it plays out.


Jean Grey is NOT the one in that grave during the funeral scene depicted in the trailer.

 

I was kind of surprised that Kinberg confirmed this, outright. He said during the interview that the funeral scene was not for Jean. There was someone else in that grave and the identity of that person, which he did not reveal, is what really divides the team.

On top of that, Kinberg made clear that this moment really undermines the faith the X-men have in Charles Xavier. Before this moment, they trust him implicitly. Jean, especially, trusts him. After what happens here, though, the team somewhat turns against him and he struggles to regain their trust.

That’s another powerful bit of drama that “X-men: The Last Stand” did not do much to develop. Xavier makes some hard choices and the consequences of those choices hurt many.


Cyclops really steps up and becomes the true leader of the X-men.

This also got plenty of cheers from the crowd. To hear Tye Sheridan talk about his character was a powerful moment. He talked about how Cyclops finds himself in a tough position where he has to make decisions that put him against others. He has to go against the will of friends, teammates, and even Charles Xavier. He isn’t given the role of leader. He earns it.

For the many Cyclops fans who hated how he got treated in the original X-men trilogy, this should be music to your ears. I could feel Tye’s enthusiasm for the character, along with many others in the crowd. I also noticed Sophie Turner smiling a lot when he talked about it, which I also think was a promising sign.


Jennifer Lawrence, more than any other cast member, tried to get “Game of Thrones” Spoilers out of Sophie Turner.

This was a serious question that also got some cheers, mostly from people dressed as “Game of Thrones” characters. Sophie Turner didn’t hesitate when she answered. She said that Jennifer Lawrence made her love of “Game of Thrones” very clear on set. She tried on more than one occasion to get some details from Turner. She didn’t say how much she succeeded, but I wouldn’t be surprised if Lawrence knows something we don’t.


There are a lot of other details I could mention from this panel. I’ll keep them to myself, though. They are now among my most precious memories of New York Comic Con and I honestly don’t know how they’ll be topped in the years to come. After being part of this panel, though, I’m a lot more hopeful about this movie. I genuinely believe it’s going to be the movie X-men fans have been waiting for.
