A one-of-a-kind novel by author JG Leathers... Airline agent, Kelly Hanson has the bad luck of being at the wrong place at the wrong time. He´s called on to assist with a female passenger Delilah Mahjalis, a young woman completely shrouded in the dense black robes of a Middle Eastern society. Kelly quickly discovers that the girl cannot walk, due to a complex array of chains and other jewellery she has apparently been forced to wear. With his curiosity piqued, Kelly embarks on a misguided attempt to discover why Delilah was so brutally restrained. But when he makes inquiries about her at her country´s embassy, his curiosity comes to the attention of the girl´s father and powerful forces are unleashed of which Kelly has no comprehension or control. Suddenly, he finds himself abducted, forcefully restrained and in the midst of an unimaginable horror story, as the latest ´subject´ of the ingenious Dr Jannason, who has perfected a unique system of bondage punishment. Kelly will be the doctor´s first male subject. In a terrifying descent into total bondage and subjugation, Kelly not only duplicates Delilah´s wretched misfortune, but he is eventually transformed into a vision of himself that defies description. Kelly becomes little more than a ´test animal´ on a forced journey of sexual reassignment in the most horrific of circumstances. Once complete, he´ll find himself shipped off to become a play thing, demonstrator, and discipline slave for Sheikh Al-Marish. There is no escape, for his journey has become a new, terrible, and permanent life. In a style all his own, JG-Leathers chronicles in Diplomatic Immunity, Part Two, an amazing physical transformation, which includes detailed accounts of forced bondage, hi-tech restraining devices, diabolical punishment, sexual torture and extreme body alterations, as well as several unique glimpses of the doctor´s various restraining methods for his ever increasing number of female subjects.

Return to My Special Place is one of the most intense dominance and submission experiences produced in DEV so far. What would it be like to feel helpless in the total control of a harsh, loving Master? This audio uses the Sensual Hypnosis technique of Directed Erotic Visualisation to take you into a place of leather bonds and dominance, sensual excess and overwhelming eroticism. BDSM experiences that take you deep into the darker places of sexual experience. Directed Erotic Visualisation is merely another altered state. During DEV you become first relaxed and receptive, then very aware of yourself and your own sensuality. You are able to recall physical pleasures and erotic stimuli, becoming aroused as though you are fantasising towards an orgasm. Then there is the overlay of erotic story and scene, with detailed sensory description that fools your mind into thinking that you are actually experiencing those sensations. Your mental sensory filter is triggered by virtual signals not arising from anything real. These become indistinguishable from reality; in fact they become your reality for the time you are in the bubble of DEV. You feel the touch and caress, the kiss and bite, the penetration and skin on skin excitement. The sex feels real, the bondage feels real and the scenes in which you are placed all feel real at the time. The memories after the fact are as good as real memories, but you are usually always aware of the difference between the virtual and the real. (The virtual is often better!) Directed Erotic Visualisation is a combination of simple techniques - easy breathing for relaxation teamed with gentle suggestion to promote visualisation. Together they work to help create a subjective reality where virtually anything is possible. Quality writing enhanced by expert narration generates an experience within that reality of sensuality and high erotic tension. The prerecorded audio experiences have proved to be very succe 1.
