I Usually Like My Porn To Have a Little More Filth In It

 

I was looking for a picture of a man mired in quicksand the other day (I wanted to stick John McCain's head onto the picture to illustrate his Iraq policies), when I came across something really strange. There is a huge online community of people that are really into quicksand, specifically girls trapped in quicksand. I guess that their sexual fetish is somehow linked to a wet 'damsel in distress' fantasy of some sort, but I still find this very odd.

People create elaborate comic book stories [ 1, 2, 3, 4 ] and write short stories [ 1, 2, 3 ] about girls trapped in quicksand, and then share them with others on the internet. The narratives seem to usually involve two girls, one of whom gets trapped in quicksand, and is then saved in the nick of time by the other girl. (Variations on this theme often involve a beautiful jungle girl trapped in quicksand being saved by their pet monkey.) People create elaborate lists of pop culture references of girls that are trapped in quicksand. [ 1, 2, 3, 4 ] They list helpful quicksand safety tips for girls that might become trapped in quicksand in the future.

The depiction of a beautiful girl trapped and then rescued from quicksand seems to represent some kind of fall from grace and then a subsequent redemption in these stories. The focus is not on the act of being saved from the quicksand in these stories, but on the helplessness of the victim. The gratification seems to be in seeing a young innocent woman that is helpless. [ 1, 2, 3, 4 ] Perhaps the people that like this sort of thing are compensating for a lack power or strength in their own dealings with women, but that just seems to be a contrived or forced explanation on my part. Also, at least some of the artwork and stories are apparently created and written by women.

You can buy feature length videos of girls sinking in quicksand [ 2, 3, 4 ] with titles like "Nessie, Quicksand Girl", "Bikini Quicksand Fun", "Carlysle Bog", "Fantasy Quicksand", "Quicksand Seeker", "Leisurely Sinking", "Quicksand Captive", and "Quicksand Virgins", "Quicksand, This Way", "Unavoidable Quicksand", "Quicksand Variety Pack" #1 and #2, "Quicksand Interactions", "Alone in the Quicksand", "Inevitably Quicksand", "Unstoppable Quicksand", "Expressively Quicksand", "Quicksand Impressions", "Quicksand Dramas", "Quicksand Terror", "Quicksand Arousal", "Quicksand, Naturally" #1 and #2, "Countrywide Quicksand" #1 and #2, "Non Stop Quicksand", "Into the Mud", "Lust for Mud", "(Because) Mud Feels Good", "Mud Feels Good" #1 and #2, "Major Mud Play" #1 and #2, "Mud Lovin' Women" #1 and #2, and "Mud Mud! Mud!".

There is even a quicksand movie studio that offers it's quicksand movie services for hire, with many quicksand locations available, including clay pit, peat pit, synthetic pit, sand pit, and 'pond'.

Except for a very few instances, the pictures and comics never depict nudity, and are not gratuitous 'mud wrestling' shots. The 'I-like-to-see-a-girl-trapped-in-quicksand' fans just seem to like to see a girl get trapped by quicksand, then thrash around helplessly in quicksand, then get rescued from quicksand. It's very strange.

That quicksand sure is dirty business.

My gosh, who knew?

I am making it my goal to find the one thing in the world that has NOT been fetishized.

So far, no one has a Dr. Zaius fetish, but you do have a fan club.

Wow, who knew that Rev. Lovejoy was right. Everything is about Jesus!

Lord, I write smut for a living and that's just odd.

Besides, the Mythbusters debunked the existence of that "drag you down to your death" type movie quicksand a few seasons ago.

How bizzarre. By comparison I'm positively square and normal next to these quicksand people.

And that's not easy to make ME look NORMAL!

Wow, since the invention of the Internet, there's just a niche for anything. Just name it and you will find it. That's pretty odd and fun. I guess the time of lonely hobbies is no more. I'm personally glad. :)

Icky. And weird.

OK, so where's all the friggin' "Girls Stranded With Flat Tire" porn, or "Girls Stuck On Hold For A Really Long Time" porn? That stuff gives me tingles of excitement!!!

No wonder I enjoy Gilligan's Island so much.

They're always falling in quicksand.

My hat is off to you, sir, because I have always prided myself on my extensive knowledge of fetishes and obscure sexual behavior. Salad-tossing, balloon knots, furries, plushies, clowns, bukkake, shibari...

But I had no idea this existed. I am humbled. Humbled and disturbed as hell.

i'm sure there are people who get off on looking at the photograph of roger daltrey in repose in a bathtub full of baked beans, as well.

hmmm...excuse me...i think i...need a moment alone.............

I never imagined it because I never thought of it.

A fetish for anything and everything? How about "Thomas the Tank Engine"?

CDP: I know!

Übermilf: Ha! Good luck! Check out ThoughtCriminal's link!

Übermilf: Ha! Thanks! What a great link!

Randal Graves: It does kind of seem like that, doesn't it? The old resurrection myth.

Anaïs Nohant: It's not even really dirty. There is no nudity, and no sex!

Darwin's Dagger: They spend entire pages on the subject of the "Quicksand Myth"!

Unconventional Conventionist: Square? Maybe, I'm pretty square too. Normal? Never!

Comics All Too Real's Chris: Ha! "lonely hobbies is no more..." That is probably very true.

Dguzman: Definitely.

Dave The Angry Rhode Islander: "Girls Stuck On Hold For A Really Long Time" Press one for this, press two for that... Oh, I could watch that for hours! ;o)

Dean Wormer: Hmm... Ginger and Mary Ann in quicksand... :o)

Bubs: I'm not really sure if it is really all that disturbing, except the whole "enjoying helpless women" part. There is no nudity, no sex, and only the occasional pet monkey!

Itchycoo Parka: Now, Ann Margaret in a bathtub of baked beans... Get me a spork!

Mark Hoback: Me either. I thought it was very odd.

ThoughtCriminal: Ha! That's a great comic!

You'd think they would have put a fence or a sign up or something after about the fifteenth time they fell in it!

Maybe the guy who wrote the "Gilligan's Island" scripts had a thing for girls trapped in quicksand, too...

I happen to be someone who photographs girls in quicksand for this fetish. There are sub-niches within the fetish involving boots, eroticism, various types of clothing, bondage, breath-holding, etc. Each one pushes a different button for a different viewer. All members appear to have been hard-wired since birth with it just like any other fetish interest.
