Cannibal Cabaret

Even though my home is filled with bookcases and books and I live alone, I keep my copy of Cannibal Cabaret hidden with the spine facing inwards in the very bottom corner of the last bookcase in a distant corner of my bedroom.

I'm not worried about legal nonsense with it, I bought it openly on Amazon UK, but it could be a tad awkward with my political career if a visitor to my house spotted it.

I still like having a physical copy of it. It might be a self-published job, but it's a proper book, and it's a one of a kind - all the other good stories in this fetish are online, and there's not many that're long form with a proper plot.

I used to own a physical copy (actually, a number of them, as they went through various editions) and I kept them similarly on my lower bookshelf, with the spine hidden. But then I started dating a nosey Presbyterian, and decided it was too 'hot' a novel to have around, so I had to discard it. Years later, the 'Jesus freak' is long gone, and my shelf is lonely for another copy.

Its great to see two of my heros in the world of erotic cannibalism photo manipulation bonding. Really brings a smile to my heart. You are both extremely talented and have inspired so many of us to become better artists. Cheers to you both!
Yes, I've known Pooka for years and he was a super mentor.

As long as your country is a member state of the European Union, your concerns are most likely unfounded (With a very small caveat, since I don't know the details of your national law, but since it concerns book trade, there are European guidelines on what should and should not be forbidden by national law).
I know of a person who is in jail for having Japanese Manga (comics) bought at a Japanese public bookstore in his suitcase because it was deemed as underage porn for the typical oversized heads.
European Laws are a "minimum" set and not a definition, I had to learn: Did have products CE approved, wanted to distribute inside the EU and ran into all sorts of trouble because some countries are imposing own regulations on top of the EU regulations.

In my country (in central Europe), SM is deemed as "inhumane" and thus forbidden hard porn already, so go guess where they would see this book...

That wouldn't surprise me, because there are Japanese manga/hentai that ARE outright CP and do depict sex with c-words, which AFAIK is legal in Japan as long as it's just drawings and no actual c-words were used in the production. And yes, the fact that you bought something in a foreign non-EU country where it is legal would not protect you from legal consequences in your home country.

European Laws are a "minimum" set and not a definition, I had to learn: Did have products CE approved, wanted to distribute inside the EU and ran into all sorts of trouble because some countries are imposing own regulations on top of the EU regulations.
True, national laws can in some cases go further than the EU guidelines, hence the small caveat in my prior post.

And is it actually a crime to buy or posess such porn, or is just distribution and commercial use prohibited? Anyway, there is a difference between porn and erotic literature. Porn is defined as media that depicts sexual acts and/or fetish acts with a major focus on the simple carnal act, while mostly ignoring the social implications that go with it. Plot and character development are either not included at all or are very bare bones and basically just a minimalistic, often cheesy and unrealistic setup for the sex/fetish scenes, which are the main point of that piece of media while plot and characters are just background. Contrary to that, a work of fiction that focuses on an actual plot that is NOT just about fucking, but e.g. about a detective trying to catch a mass murderer or about people pursuing a problematic romance and merely contains erotic scenes is not porn and may contain just about everything, as long as it is pure fiction, which in case of a written story is usually not the problem (More problematic with life action movies, because even if it isn't porn, you can't have scenes in which real actors are actually subjected to actions that would be regarded as illegal despite consent. This is why the movie adaptations of Stephen King's "IT" do not contain the book scene in which the protagonists decide that to break out of the demon's labyrinth in which they are still caught, they must "become adults" and do that by symbolically having group sex).

I already mentioned "Silence of the Lambs" and "Lolita" as examples of books that are perfectly legal even if they do contain graphic description of actions that would be considered illegal in a porn (i.e. in fiction that focuses primarily on said action). I bet despite SM porn being illegal in your country, you can still legally buy "Fifty Shades of Grey" as an adult. Not sure why anyone would want to buy that, but you probably can. ;)

Maybe I can just put this here. This is a version of the book I created some years back, with the author name 'Pooka'. It has a few extra chapters than the one being sold on Amazon. Bon appetit!
I did download the PDF file and I appreciate that it's a "special" version, with added chapters, but I also like to support artists. (I know I'm a little late to the party here but better late than never!) If I buy it from Amazon, are you getting paid? I don't mind having both the PDF and the paperback.

Oh, and having it on my bookshelf wouldn't hurt my chances with the ladies any more than anything else in my studio/living space! A girl might need to push aside a giant pot or look behind a girl-sized oven to see it but by then she wouldn't be shocked by it... :laugh:

And BTW, Since Mrs Muki and I are now divorced, I've actually put myself "out there" (mostly FetLife) as being available to play out the kinds of scenes I'm known for photographing. I've had several interested responses and I've already had the opportunity to play with one very delicious meat-girl! πŸ˜‹ Somehow, I doubt that seeing your book on my coffee table would've surprised her in the least!

LOL! You are in a rather unique position that would enhance your reputation! πŸ˜€

I suspect I would not get away with it quite as lightly. Though at one point I printed off some artwork from the old WE site with the view of framing it. Naturally I bottled out! πŸ™„

I appreciate your kind words, Mr. Muki. As a longtime fan, and customer, I've bought many a collection of photos from you, and I'm sure I will do more in the future. I make mention of your web offerings twice in the novel, both in the introduction, and the story itself. And yes, if purchased off of Amazon, the print version of the novel does pay me a modest fee. Not a whole lot, but then it was never my intention to make a profit from this book.

It's good to know you put yourself back in the field, dating-wise, and even managed to hook up with a willing meat-girl. This past year, I similarly started a relationship with a girl who I revealed the fetish to. She not only got 'into it', but she openly encouraged me to utilize the fantasy during our love-making, even after I'd started to wean myself off of it. Sadly, we have since parted for unrelated reasons, and she never did get around to reading the novel, which might have inspired her even further. Her cooing whispers of 'how will you cook me, tonight, Mr. Chef?' still ring, bittersweet, in my ears.😒

As for the 'extra chapters' in the 'Pooka' version of this book (as opposed to the T.J. Collens one), let's just say the 'girl in the pot' has an extended role in this edition, and she reaches her inevitable fate as a stew. Also, some sushi and rotisserie action. 😜

Those are always good times. I used to have someone I shared this interest with, and in the least it worked out as fantasies for some creative bondage play I fondly remember. She didn't want anything inserted since she was overly concerned about any strange objects introducing some germs in her parts despite any sort of precautions (I didn't argue and just respected her preference without question), but she took and enjoyed the bondage and apple gag aspects like a champ. Like with Pooka's story, it didn't last for other reasons.

Just finished the PDF/Pooka version and my hardcopy from Amazon (of the T.J.Collens version) arrived earlier today. I definitely like having the self published book to put on my shelf or my coffee table. Good job Pooka!

Of course, now I'm hungry for girl-meat... Is the fact that it's addictive going to seal the case of what really happened with Mrs Muki? πŸ€”

Yes, you're guilty, and doomed for life. 😜

I'd curious to see which version of the book you prefer. The hardcopy is a little more conventional-reader friendly. I've had a number of friends, mostly women who aren't into the fetish, read it and love it. (somehow, they've yet to put me in a strait-jacket). It has more illustrations, too. The 'Pooka' version contains those extra chapters which are meaner and more graphic. Less for the faint of heart.

I sometimes wonder if I have been too sensitive about this all my life and should have embraced it slightly more when you think of how many really rather dark ideas have gained universal popularity in modern media, people do distinguish between fantasy fiction and real life.

Let's fill up the Waterstones window with copies of the book and no doubt heads will be turned and copies sold! :)

In the past eight years, I've had three girlfriends, two of whom I shared the fetish with and had good results. The first of those even read the CanCab novel, and really enjoyed it. The eventual breakup was amicable, and due to a health necessity, and nothing personal. We're still close friends, and text frequently. (just last night, in fact) Occasionally, I let a 'Pooka' reference slip into our conversation on how a particular woman is 'cookable', and I usually get a playful eye-roll emoji. πŸ™„ But I am certain she's, at the very least, endearingly amused by it, and would never 'expose' me.

The second of those was also fun in bed, using the fetish as a 'spice'. Shortly after introducing her to the fetish, she texted me photos of herself with an apple in her mouth! When this relationship ended, though, it was very abrupt and no explanation was given. She refused to have a friendship with me, and wanted no communications whatsoever. As you can imagine, this one left me feeling somewhat unclean and paranoid. Did the fetish have anything to do with it? Even if it didn't, was she now using it as justification to herself- or others- for ending the relationship? Had she spoken to any mutual friends about it? Suddenly, I was overwhelmed with paranoia, and was grateful that I hadn't texted her any of my artwork. 'Revenge porn' could be a very interesting thing in my case.

So, my advice is if you are going to share the fetish with a partner, be sure she's a good friend, and an overall good person. It's gonna take a lot of trust to make it work, and you don't want to torment yourself with doubt and insecurity if it doesn't last for the long haul.

That said, my novel (the Collens version) might be a good gateway tool into the fetish. It makes for decent reading, and you can always just say 'Hey, honey' look at this weird book I read', and see her response. If she's appalled by it, you can dismiss it as a silly curiosity. If she seems intrigued, it might be the stepping stone into some serious sexual fun.

I've attached a PDF of the 'Collens' version. It doesn't contain the added 'Pooka' chapters, and should make for safer, mainstream reading.

This is always the worry. I have had it thrown in my face in the past but I suspect anything would have been at the time.

So far I have not had anyone try to cause problems later on but that might be down to me still being super embarrassed by it all! 😳
