What is Goblin Cave?

yaoi

Now I like to think that over the years I have come to grown a refined taste when it comes to the kind of yaoi content I myself enjoy. I know what kinds of kinks and tropes I enjoy from my choice in the content I choose to consume, but then a title will come along that will have tropes I am not usually a fan of, or will just be so different to anything else I have ever come across in the genre that one can not just simply look away. To put it quite bluntly Goblin Cave is pure adulterated yaoi smut and if you are not a fan of rape or monster fucking then this is not a title for you.

Consisting of three short animations their story of these shorts is quite simple like you would have with your standard porn film. The first part opens with an unnamed man who has been captured by goblins being savagely raped by the creatures over and over again until a much larger goblin, one can assume by the behaviour of the other goblins that this larger goblin is more than likely their leader and takes over the abuse of the main character. About midway through the first part of this series we are introduced to a group of knights who are in the cave to save the man and they come across the scene of what is happening to the captive man. Part two and three of the series works as two alternative outcomes for what happens to the captive man and the knights.

Part two gives us the bad ending, where the knights fail to save the captive man and they as well becomes captives of the goblins and this results in, you guessed it my reader more rape. Part three is the good ending and is honestly my favourite part of the series. In this part, the knights successfully rescue the captive man and as they camp out afterwards we see that the man is still in a state of shock after what he has been through. We the audience do not know how long he had been held captive by the beasts but what has happened to him has left a definitive mark on his psyche and he seeks comfort through sex with one of the knights to help him heal from the trauma.

One of the biggest positives I can give this short series is its amazingly fluid animation, especially when you come to realise that this was a project animated alone by one person. An artist on PixivFANBOX known only as Sana. In fact, on their official PixivFANBOX page, you can purchase these animations and other projects of theirs directly from them to help support their amazing work as well as follow them on Twitter to see some of the amazing art they share.

I love using my blog here on WordPress here to share some love for not just yaoi and BL titles released by the big studios but also the small independent creators whose work can have a big impact on the fandom, but then it saddens me when I see the work of those artists being shared around the internet on various sites and not being given the proper credit for their work. Every big creator out there once started out small and independent whether it was your favourite manga creator once selling their work at a convention or artists working by commission. It is important for us as a community to support artists both big and small by when we can enjoying their content through legal means. This is why it has taken me over a year to write about Goblin Cave because initially I found the animation on a porn site that was not the creators and I saw a lot of people talking about these animations but whenever I asked who the creator was all I got was the name, Sana. I am happy that through my searching I was able to find the original creator of these amazing animations and was able to purchase the titles through them directly.

I know not everyone can afford to support the artists they love whether it is through not knowing where the artwork came from or who made it or maybe you can not afford or find that popular manga everyone is talking about, but we need to support the artists we love so that they can continue making the work we love. Especially in the times, we are in right now. My readers, I apologise if this is coming across as preachy I really do but I suppose this could also be a preview to another blog piece I am working on right now, till next time my fellow yaoi and BL lovers.

Dick Fight Island – Manga Review

yaoi

Oh how this yaoi lover wished they could have a hold of a physical copy of this title but due to high demand it sold out so quickly that I myself had to purchase it digitally through Amazon (And physical copies are still sold out)! Set on the fictional archipelago of Pulau Yong’Unda, every four years a great tournament known as ‘The Great Wyrm Tournament’ to name the new king of the land, with each of the eight clans within the archipelago putting forth their greatest of champions to battle it out. As you might guess however, with a title like Dick Fight Island this is no ordinary tournament, instead of battling in fights of brute force and power the clans fight a different kind of battle that shows their true strength of a man, with armor that covers their most sacred of jewels and shows of the barest of asses in honor of their manliness! Strap yourself in my yaoi and BL lovers because you will not be disappointed if you choose to pick up this title that has taken the manga world by storm in the last month.

Whether you love yourself a cute little twink or a burly older gentlemen or anything in between believe me you will find your type within this title

With a title like Dick Fight Island I was honestly expecting this manga to be nothing but fanservice with just enough plot to get the characters to do the deed, so when I began reading this title and found that not only did this manga have some absolutely gorgeous character designs but it also had a very intriguing and at times hilariously melodramatic storyline. Each of the competitors in the competition has their own motivations as to why they are competing. From proving that even though they are from a mostly female clan they are just as manly as any other man at the tournament, to fighting for love after all this is a romance manga and it delivers very much so on the romance as well as action!

Believe me this is a title where you will come for the ridiculous premise and action but you will stay for the romance. From forbidden love between clans, classism and culture shock from the point of view of an outsider looking in as he watches his lover compete in this competition there are plenty of moments that will leave you on the edge of you seat. Do I wish some characters got a bit more of a spotlight? Yes. Am I hoping we get another volume to continue this story? That would be a hell yes! It’s not that often I say a title is a must read for a yaoi fan but this title truly is a must read! And if you want to see some awesome artwork from the creator Reibun Ike then you really want to follow their Twitter!

This Fluffy Love – First Impression

yaoi

If you are looking for a light and fluffy boys love to read, then my latest favourite read over on Webtoon might just be the title for you to read. Sarith just wants to spend his school life having fun with his friends and having a peaceful school existence but when the class delinquent Ashen pushes his way into his life by chance, he can not help but notice he is kind of cute and as he is forced to get to know the other boy more he begins to think maybe he is not as bad as people say.

How is this for an adorable first impression?

Sarith is one of the most adorable BL leads I have seen in a long time and I also love the fact that he is well, an adorable chubby boy! All too often in a lot of escapist media we see a main character that is what society would deem the ideal ‘body type’ and I just love that this series on webtoon breaks that trend, because can I just say we need more BL with chubby boys! I also love that the opening chapters of the story establish that even though he is a bigger boy it does not mean he has an issue with food or is a depressed person wanting to change as it is established early on that he comes from a loving family that just loves food. Being big does not mean you are miserable or dirty or unpopular and I just love that positive message the story has.

Then you got the character Ashen who is easy on the eyes and from the outside looking in looks like he could have anything he wants. His father is a powerful politician and he is surrounded by ‘friends’ all the time at school and the teachers even let him get away with breaking the rules in fear of his father, but the truth is he is a really sad and lonely boy who at times can be a bit of an air head and because of that those around him take advantage of him. He almost seems shocked when he receives genuine kindness from Sarith and it would damn near break your heart when he puts on the most adorable pout.

As the friendship between the two boys grows their relationship also evolves and begins to become something more and seeing these two adorable boys work their way through their new found feelings for each other will keep you coming back to read more, but do not let the title fool you yes this is a fluffy love but no relationship is perfect and watching the two of them grow through the pitfalls is what will keep you coming back every Sunday for the next chapter. If this sounds like a story you would love to read follow this link to read it over on webtoon to support the creator.

BJ Alex – Manhwa Review

yaoi

I decided at about mid way last month that all the reviews I posted this pride month on Yaoi Playground would only be titles with good LGBTQ+ representation and when I finally finished reading BJ Alex a few weeks ago by the end I came to an amazing conclusion. This is a hardcore boys love title that shows a very realistic romance between its leads as well as realistic social commentary of the ‘gay experience’ in the modern age. This alone takes this from an amazing title to a modern masterpiece in my opinion when it comes to boys love. Though sex comes quickly in this story and it is the hot scenes that will draw you in, it is the growing romance and character development throughout the series that will keep you coming back for more.

The opening chapters of this manhwa almost feel like a cautionary tale of never meeting your idols, because reality can never live up to the fantasy we have in our head, and in a way this theme continues throughout the entire series. Reality can be harsh and cruel and so can love. First love can be even more complicated when we are still learning about ourselves and who we are and this is certainly true for Nam Dong-Gyun. When it comes to sex he is very naïve at the beginning of the story, but also quietly curious. What starts as an arrangement with his idol BJ Alex as just ‘sex friends’ with the term friend used very loosely soon snowballs emotionally for him when he comes to realize he wants more than just sex and that he has broken the one rule he was given when the arrangement started, don’t fall in love.

BJ Alex, Ahn Jiwon and even the person Ahn is out in public could not be more different from each other, even though they are all the same person, just different masks worn by him. One is the online streamer personality loved by millions of fans for his raunchy livestreams and has a loving attitude towards sex and his own sexual conquest. Ahn Jiwon on the other hand seems perfect to those around him, with his gentle smile and helpful attitude to those around him; but like the mask that BJ Alex wears during his livestreams Jiwon hides the real him behind his smiling mask of perfection. Hidden underneath is a cold angry man who keeps everyone around him at a comfortable distance. As the story continues Ahn Jiwon is the character that gets the most development throughout the story. Through learning about his past, we learn why he keeps people at a distance, why he hates love and why the visage of perfection he hides behind could be doing him more harm than good.

It is the last quarter of the manhwa however that the story goes from amazing to brilliant and there will be spoilers from this point onwards. So if what you have read so far makes you want to go read this manhwa over on Lezhin then please stop here and read the manhwa because I will be spoiling a huge plotline in the later half of the story.

Welcome to Pride Month 2021

yaoi

Hello my fellow LGBTQ+ yaoi and boys love lovers and welcome to pride month here on Yaoi Playground. To those who I new here, even though online I go by your very own Mistress of Yaoi that is only one part of me as I also identify as non-binary, so of course that means this month I will be sharing some of my favourite positive representation this month in the reviews and posts I share and I want to start of this month with a great big thankyou to Nickelodeon and to those in the know you will know why!

As a millennial I grew up watching the original Blue’s Clues on Nick Jr as a kid and teenager, yes I watched shows like this as a teen because I have younger siblings. Anyway I was unaware that the show had recently been rebooted for a new generation as Blue’s Clues & You and that a certain clip from the show has recently gone viral. They made a song about Pride and family representation and from what I am seeing online I am not the only one who near broke down (and in some cases did) in tears at the level of representation in this song and the positive message it is spreading of families coming in all types. I would have been happy with it showing families with two dads, two mums and supporting there trans kids but it is so much more than that. The song also includes representation of ace and non binary as well as chosen and found families!

I never would have thought as a kid that I would see this level of representation in a kids show and the fact that it is in a show aimed at such a young audience just makes me even happier!

Of course not everyone is happy about this inclusion in a kid show. You have the typical homophobic groups accusing the show of showing themes that are inappropriate for the target audience. To them I say, what is so inappropriate about representing all types of families? We live in a day and age where not all children come from a household with a mum and a dad. This is not just about representation for the adults who make up these kinds of families but the kids who grow up in them.

So once again I want to give a big thankyou to Nickelodeon. You were such a big part of my childhood growing up and to see them with such progressive content like this for a new generation is such amazing work!

Enzai Falsely Accused – Yaoi Visual Novel Review

yaoi

First released in Japan in September of 2002 and then just a few years later getting an official English release in 2006 followed in 2009 with an official release in China, Enzai Falsely Accused has over the years earned itself a bit of a cult following within certain yaoi and boys love circles as well as infamy in others. For in the west in the the mid to late 2000’s a new kind of yaoi fan was emerging and this game was for many a first step into the world of yaoi visual novels; and this wasn’t a light step into the shallows this is a title that dived head first into depravity and many from that era of the yaoi fandom have many a bad flashback to this game. That being said many playing the game at the time were still teenagers and not necessarily old enough for this kind of content. So that begs the question is this game as fucked up as many would make you believe? How has this game aged since its release in the early 2000’s and if it is so bad why does it still have fans today? This is Enzai Falsely Accused.

insert Vietnam flashback meme here

I went into this visual novel expecting some edgy yaoi story set in a prison with a lot of rape and torture; and yes, you will find those themes within this game. There are some truly horrific depictions of torture and rape in this game not unlike another title I reviewed here last year, however unlike Hadaka Shitsuji which is a game that is sadistic for the sake of being sadistic Enzai surprised me throughout my playthrough with the level of heart and sweet moments found within it’s many routes and some of the best written characters I have found in a yaoi visual novel yet.

The story of the game takes place in post-revolutionary France during the early 19th century though an exact date is never given. You play as Guys a young man barely out of his childhood who while out with friends one day is caught shop lifting and then charged with murder and locked away for life. It is not a stretch to say that many plot and story elements within this game can escalate very quickly within the game. One minute you are talking to your friends in the courtyard and the next minute you are being dragged to the torture chambers within the prison for some extreme torture that involves Guys being hung from the ceiling by chains.

Being just barely an adult Guys will come across as very naïve for the first half of many of the routes within the game and depending on which route you choose you will see him grow into either a confident man who over comes some horrible traumas and come out the other end with at the very least a happy ending or you will see him become an emotionally broken doll who wishes for death, the choice really is up to you, with the exception of your first playthrough.

In order to get all the endings you have to get ending one first which is the most basic of story routes where you must prove your innocence by gathering evidence by any means necessary and survive your time in prison, do not focus on any romance options for this first playthrough is my best advice because once you get the first good ending for the game or ending 1 as the game calls it more routes are opened to you including a hidden romance option that will not turn up until you have completed ending 1. You can still get bad endings on your first run so be careful with your choices, it took me five attempts before I got ending 1 but once I did and started getting the other routes that is when my real enjoyment came from the game, including unlocking a secret character that will only appear after this ending and under very specific choices.

There are a total of eleven different ending within the game to unlock within the game with a mix of good and bad endings and I found all of them well written, I especially enjoyed that through playing through the different routes you find out more about not only the prison but as well as side stories that include political sabotage and war crimes and you don’t just learn about the characters whose route’s you are playing but also learn about others within the prison. One of my favourite characters which I was very disappointed I could not romance is an insane inmate called Belbet who when talking to others about the game I came to find is quite a popular NPC within the game.

Each character you meet will slowly open up depending on the choices you make, will you help your lawyer Lusca find faith in himself again as a lawyer, fall for the charming Evan or innocent seeming Io? Or will you be pulled under the wing of the delinquent Jose? Maybe you will survive by becoming an obedient slave to the sadistic guard Durer or maybe just maybe you have enough heart to help Vallewida? Whatever choice you make you will not be disappointed by the path you choose just know that with many of the routes you will get angry and you will shed a tear for these characters.

This game made me a crying blubbering mess on a few of its sadder endings, you just want to see some of these men get their happy ending

The last positive I have to say for this game is the amazing soundtrack that fits the mood of the game and the equally amazing voice acting that is on par with titles released today. That being said one thing that pulled me out of the moment in many scenes was the sound effects within certain scenes, really drag you out of the moment and sound very unrealistic and during some of the more deplorable moments that should have had me feeling sad for Guys I found myself laughing under my breath at how bad the sound effects were, especially the sound effect for the licking of anything but that could be because of all the mukbang videos I have watched over the last year and from that knowing how fake these sounds come across.

The artwork could also be an issue for some who play the game, being of an older art style it will not be to everyone’s taste. I myself found much of the character designs beautiful when they needed to be and down right vile when they needed to be and the option to turn on or off censorship of certain body parts while playing the game was a good inclusion.

Over all I enjoyed my playthrough of Enzai though getting the secret character was a bit of a challenge for me and I did end up looking up a walkthrough to find him I found the game over all very enjoyable. As I stated in the beginning of this review all the characters were well written even the ones I ended up hating because of was hating them for being shit human beings and not just a bland boring character. If you have ten to thirty hours to spare and lets face it in this time of lockdowns many of us do I highly recommend heading over the Jast USA’s website and giving this game a try as it is also one of the most affordable BL titles on there.

finding Shion’s route was annoying but well worth it

If the story has you curious about the world of Enzai but you are not a VN fan you can go searching online for the anime adaptation of this title. Unlike certain anime adaptations of yaoi games this one stays very close to the source material and pretty much follows the story to ending one of the game with a few easter eggs from other routes sprinkled in, sadly however the anime does not have an official English release unlike the game.

Dakaichi Movie Teaser Trailer

movie, news, yaoi

The anime tie in movie has been a main staple for anime watchers for a while now, a popular series will get a movie or OVA released on either Blu-ray or DVD and jut before the current pandemic cinema releases that were quite common in Japan were beginning to happen more often the west. That being said with how niche anime still is in the west it is only the big mainstream titles like anything from Dragonball or the next big Ghibli movie see a cinema release, but a yaoi fan can dream can they not?

I bring this up because the latest announced anime tie in movie, is from boys love series Dakaretai Otoko 1-i ni Odosarete Imasu or better known by western audiences Dakaichi: I am Being Harassed by the Sexiest Man of the Year! Very little has been revealed about the upcoming movie except for that it will be getting an Autumn (in the northern hemisphere) 2021 release date and the tag line “The movie version is threatened by the first place man that wants to be held Spain Edition”

The artwork shown in this teaser trailer plus the beautiful Spanish guitar featured in this trailer as well as the tag line at least hint at the location this film will be taking place and I was so happy to hear the voice cast from the series returning to reprise their roles which made me a very happy fan and I can wait to here more about this upcoming movie!

Top 5 Favourite Reads on Futekiya

important lists, yaoi

It should come as no big secret by this point that my absolute favourite subscription service of the last year has been to the amazing site Futekiya, an online library of legally acquired and released yaoi and boys love content! Whenever I have a chance to legally support the genre that I adore so much I will do so and it is for this reason why I want to share my top five favourite reads so far from the site.

Now this is a list of favourite, so these are to my personal reading tastes and if any of these titles need tw warnings I will mention them within the list, I am also limiting this list to one per author because otherwise a certain author would be the bulk of this list and I wanted to use this as a chance to write about some titles I have yet to write about here on Yaoi Playground.

5. I Want You So Much That I’ll Let Him Violate Me by Funa

This title is why this post features trigger warnings so before I go into what this title is about here is the list of trigger warnings for this title that will not be for everyone; dubious consent, Rape and incest between cousins. I should have hated this title, no really I should have. It encompasses so many yaoi tropes that I have stated I hate including I rape you because I love you and yet… The tragic love triangle found within this title drew me in as well as the fact it is a yaoi story that features one of my biggest kinks that being older men in suits.

The manga tells the story of Kimichika who ever since he was a young boy has had a crush that turned into love for his grandfathers android butler, but when his grandfather passes away and leaves the android to Kimichika’s cousin, well things get complicated when he reveals he knows how Kimichika feels for the android, so he makes an offer to him that if he wants to android he must do something for him in return and with a tag like love triangle you know where this story is going and the bitter ending that could almost be seen as either sweet or sad is up to the readers interpretation of what they just read.

4. Cherry Boy Tiger and Hot and Cold Rabbit by Miwa

My most recent read on this list, I must admit I was surprised at how much I enjoyed this series. I have always had a soft spot for bunny boys in my yaoi but have also had a strong dislike for the tsundere personality type when it comes to characters so titles that include these kind of characters can be a real hit or miss for me. I love how the first few chapters of this manga introduce you to the world you are stepping into with this manga, a bunny boy host club that offers extra services for a price. How the place works is easily introduced like how host boys are white rabbits and security are men in suits with black rabbit ears. Then the meat of the story begins with a strained relationship between a reluctant security bunny and a mischievous worker who takes offense to being accused of having it easy. The relationship does involve a bit of dubious consent, which can be a big no for some but this is also a manga that plays with a few kinks you do not see too often. These include bunny boy outfits, men in suits, stockings and foot play to name a few. I myself found it to be an amusing read and is worth checking out if this sounds to your taste.

3. The Midnight Association for Broken Hearts by Minamoto Kazuki

Sometimes you do not want to read a long story but you want that yaoi fix and when that happens to me I love a good yaoi anthology series, one of my all time favorite’s of these is the Yaoi Hentai series from Yaoi Press released in the 2000’s, and I have noticed in recent years I have seen less and less anthology collections so when I found The Midnight Association for Broken Hearts I was very happy to see it was a collection of various yaoi stories. Out of the stories in this anthology my favourite is most definitely the first. To heart broken men eating away their sorrows late at night at a family restaurant only to find they are both heart broken and what starts as a friendship soon turns to love, the only problem… in the bedroom they are both bottoms! The other stories are just as adorable except for the third one for me, not a fan of blackmail and dubious consent most the time… but being an anthology if that is not your taste you can just skip it!

2. Can I Buy Your Love From a Vending Machine by Yoshi Haruaki

I absolutely loved reading this manga’s chapters daily as it came out last month, if fact I loved it so much that I started my review for it the same day I finished the final chapter which you can read right here. As stated in the review I am not usually a fan of the will they won’t they romantic comedy and quite often find them downright annoying but this sweet tale of a salary man and a vending machine stocker is just so many levels of adorable and will keep you hooked from start to finish and is a perfect choice for a read if you are looking for something that is more fluffy than sexy.

1. It’s Fine If It Is Just a Dream by Ayu Yamane

The one thing I have loved most about being a subscriber to Futekiya, is finding titles and authors I would never have found before, and if I had not limited this list to one per author then every single entry on this list would have been her work, so I decided to go with the title that got me hooked on her work. The art style of their work is very different to anything else I have seen in the yaoi and BL genre and the artwork reminds me a little of a children’s picture book, but these are stories that can tackle heavy themes of loneliness and being treated as an outcast and maybe perhaps finding a happy ending with other outcasts or lonely souls. I have already given a full review of this title and it can be found here, other manga’s of theirs I can highly recommend include The Stray, Necktie and Praying Mantis and Moja & I.

I hope this list has given you some great recommendations of titles worth checking out over on Futekiya and if you have yourself have read anything on their not featured on this list let me down in the comments below and why you recommend me checking it out. Also if you would like to see more list posts like this from me let me know! And if you want to know what I am working on, currently reading or what yaoi vn’s I am currently playing check out my Twitter, but only if you are 18+ because I post and share a lot of naughty stuff.

Meet the Fans – Mary Dumas

meet the fans, yaoi

Welcome to another installment of Meet the Fans here on Yaoi Playground today I want to share a very special yaoi fan today who is also a yaoi author who’s work I love, one work of which has been on the back burner of reviews for me and who is living proof that a love of yaoi is not just a teenage fad!

So let’s start with you introducing yourself?

I’m Mary Dumas, I’ve used A few aliases in my time. Marina, Bishounen Judge, and Dirty Old Lady being the recent ones. I have lived outside of Boston for the past 18 years, before that Virginia and California. My sister is married to a Japanese-American, and they lived in Japan for many years. Way back when VHS tapes were the thing I would tape favorite American TV shows for them. My bro-in-law would send me manga in return. I cannot read Japanese… but the pictures were great. He sent BL as a joke once… I was officially hooked. Then he figured out how to send VHS tapes with fan subs. I have a husband I’ve been married to for 38 years. I have a son 22 and daughter 25.

What would you say is your favourite yaoi?

Okay, here’s where I have to differentiate between anime Yaoi and manga Yaoi. The anime Ai No Kusabi is the best Yaoi and the best mlm sci-fi story. The manga Banana Fish is my favorite, and I’m truly disappointed with the anime adaptation. And the manhwa Let Dai is another that was transformative.

A fellow fan with very good taste if I say so myself, nothing beats the original Ai no Kusabi anime

Being an older fan what was the fandom like when you first became a fan?

When I first discovered Yaoi I was already into Tom of Finland. Yaoi was a huge breath of air, real stories, not just sex. Of course, I’ve always been considered something of a weirdo among anime fans because of my love of Yaoi but my near hate of fanfic doujinshi.

Intriguing I must confess I have never found someone in the fandom that was not a fan of fanfic or doujinshi could you go further into why you are not a fan?

I’m not a fan of fanfic because of the ruination of a friendship in high school. It was 1975, Norman, had written a pretty good story in English class, a fantasy with a bit of romance. It won an award and it got published in the newspaper. It was a big deal, and we’d all known about it. Sheila thought it would be hilarious to rewrite the romance part so it was about Norman and his friend, Mark. She made copies and distributed them around. This was homophobic times, and to say this was a joke is to put it mildly. It ruined their friendship, and Mark moved to another school. I’ve always thought, from that time, that no one has the right to alter any other person’s creation. No matter how trivial it may seem.

Wow I can see how that would leave you with a negative taste for fanfiction. To finish this interview is there anything you would like to say to those new to the fandom? And also feel free to plug any of your own projects within the genre

Those new to Yaoi or BL will be in for a lot of fun, some great conversations with other fans of the genre, and then will no doubt add in some great reads from the MLM fiction romance novels for a wonderful ride. Now, somewhere along the line there will be someone judgmental or just uncomfortable with your choice in reading. That’s on them, they’re the ones missing the fun. Don’t let it bother or embarrass you because it just doesn’t matter. As with all things there is some BL/Yaoi that is frowned upon because of it having currently not PC content, but those stories are not the majority of the genre, so don’t let that be a label put on all of it, or you for reading it.

My own contribution to BL/Yaoi is a comedy graphic novel it took my five years to complete. “Romeo X Julien” is only available at Amazon currently, and it’s independently published. It’s hard Yaoi… lots of sex. I’m currently working on a historical Yaoi set during WW2 in Europe. That one is a soft Yaoi… you know they’re doing it, but it’s not blatant. It’s working title is “The Lucky Ones.” Thank you for allowing me to be involved in your research. It brought back some good and some difficult memories. Mary Dumas the D.O.L.L. Head… that’s Dirty Old Lady’s League.

If you would like to check out Mary’s very own yaoi title please check it out on Amazon right here to support this amazing author and fellow yaoi lover! Till next time I am your Mistress of Yaoi.
