      David Mac had intended to confront Mr. Danials, Kelly's principle the day after he and his daughter enjoyed their first fuck. This being spurred on by the hot porno tape that he found in Kelly's room. He had wondered if, by her leaving it in plan view, where his little horny Hermaphrodite had done, that she secretly wanted him to "catch" her. Most of all, was she inviting him to do the nasty things that where on the tape?

      "I had a boathouse there, but it had fallen into disrepair, the wooden rowboat sunk at the mouth of the small stream that drained their swimming hole. The kids would arrive in the afternoon, use the dilapidated boathouse to change into their swimsuits, play in the water until shortly before sunset, and re-cross my property, sometimes in their wet bathing suits, to go home..." Russell, a middle-aged novelist, watches the girls (9, 11 and 12 y.o.) who use the pond he can see from his patio, and starts to notice that they may not be as innocent as they seem...

      "Waiting to be exported, Lidiya was whored, her vaginal virginity preserved but her butt and ass available to all comers. Tremulous and in an almost constant agony, the child was no longer able to distinguish between physical and psychological pain, but she did not cease to dream. Her fear - her very soul - focused upon the pink gash between her pale thighs, the thin membrane that separated her from the other runaways who passed through the apartment. Though she fucked and sucked like an imp in heat, continuing to buck until she was slapped, Lidiya froze and squealed when her slit was touched, terrified..."
      Raising Savannah
      savannah zip (30k) (Mf, Mfg; inc; yng teen, pedo; extreme caution)
      "Lester led her to the dream room. It took her breath away. Here the pedophile had arranged everything a little girl could desire, antique rocking-horses and piles of fabulous dolls, all of it around a four-poster bed hung with pink satin curtains that matched the silk bedding. This was where Lester masturbated, the flat-screen television hanging from the flowery wall now dark but otherwise flickering with fuck films. Savannah almost cried she was so overwhelmed. Savannah knew somehow that Lester didn't have a daughter, that the girl these things were meant for could be _her_. Lester asked her if she wanted to get out of her wet things and try on some of the clothes..." Ian (27 y.o.) is divorced, and worries about protecting his daughter, a beautiful blonde named Savannah (7 y.o.) - from himself. His job takes him into a lot of high schools, and when he interviews a young slut named Abigail (a very petite 14 y.o.), he loses control of his urges. But Ian can't stop thinking about what he might do to guide motherless little Savannah smoothly into womanhood. Maybe Abigail could help, or at least distract him from what he secretly wants to do to his daughter?

      Most of Mary's life had been pretty mundane. She married her college sweetheart, spent a brief time as a teacher, then stayed home to raise her son Mike and daughter April. Now she's nearly 50, still at home every day, Mike and April are married, and each of them has two kids of their own. Sounds pretty "all-American family", doesn't it? It wasn't until about six months ago when Mary's life really heated up, in more ways than one. That's when Mary discovered the joys of incest.

    • I, Pedophile; or The Confessions of a Political Prisoner
      ipedo zip (11k) (m/m/m/m/f/toddler/memories/diapers/w/s/ped)
      The room was bleak, not very well lit. It smelled of disinfectant and stale tobacco. Not a pleasant mixture. I’ve been in these settings before. Cold, gray walls, surround a room of about 15 feet by 15 feet. In front of me is a beat up, Oak table whose surface is marred by cigarette burns. Sad, I think to myself.. For such a beautiful piece of furniture so represents the mess yours truly has found himself in. Aged "beauty" marred by what some would call a disease. As to who I am, and what mess that is…well that will come to out soon, as my tail unfolds.
      There’s Something Different About Kelly, part 2

      It had been about two weeks or so since Kelly, the girl with a difference, enjoyed her first fuck from daddy. Not only did she enjoy that special gift from him. A gift she had wanted ever since she was ten. Her feelings grew stronger since the times she would sneak into his room. There standing before her daddy, little twelve year old Kelly would stroke her cock as well as slick pussy. Knowing full well that at twelve he would not be able to resist her. She also knew that by being the aggressor, this took away the preassure, so to speak, from her beloved daddy. After he had invited her to see his shrink and the adventure’s they had that night, Kelly knew her father was always horny for her. As well as that nice doctor James. But no one was as horny as Kelly Mac, twelve year old Heraphrodite.

      The three retired to the bedroom where the clothes began to fly. Soon they were all naked and frolicking on the large bed. Both Sharon and Lindsey were licking young Rebecca’s pussy, taking turns on who would suck the extended nubbin of her clit. Moans of raw carnal passion were coming from Rebecca as she rocketed quickly to ever escalating explosions of rapture. They were so taken with what was happening they didn’t hear Alex when he entered the room.

    • The Power
      thepower zip (17k) (M/f, inc)
      This story is inspired by the wonderful and timless Rod Serling series "The Twilight Zone". For those of you not old enough to remember it I'm sorry for you, but if Rod Serling had ever done a program about incest it might have been something like this (although much better I'm sure). He always started with a narration such as: "Introducing Miss Shelly Benson, a thirteen-year-old girl who wants to capture her Father's attention and decides that using her sexual power is the quickest way. But power doesn't always benefit the one that discovers it, not in the Twilight Zone."

      He dropped his pants quickly and strode over to the bed. "No daddy" Cassie whimpered as she realized what he was about it do. "Oh fuck yes, baby, now you take your real daddy". Bill watched as Cassies daddy grabbed her body off the bed and bent her over the chair. Her ass was still very red and he watched himself in the mirror as he thrust into her already cum filled cunt. His hands went to her thin little hips and he began to fuck her wet cunt, fuck her like she was a real slut, a porno movie star. She had to grab onto the chair to keep herself up right, to keep herself from falling onto the floor. Her dad was so hard and was fucking her so fast that she knew he would not last. Cassie's daddy began to grunt and slam into her harder and harder, watching the obscene picture in the mirror. Watching himself fuck his little 10 year old daughter, fucking the cunt that he had just given away to another man for his pleasure. He began to shoot then, big thick ropes of cum, shooting into her little cunt, joining the cum already there. Cassie was one full little cum slut.    Bill and Cassie's daddy could not wait for the next movie day...

      debra1 zip (15k) (bro/sis inc m/f)
      I guess the room smelled of sex. Debra had been very horny that evening. Bill came into her room and they talked softly. There was something about Tracy, his girlfriend, and some other guy. She was still wearing barely nothing as the negligee did little to hide the fact she was naked underneath. Bill was very close to Debra and I couldn’t hear everything they said. He placed his right hand on her neck, touching her softly there as they talked. Then I watched as his hand drifted down her back. He pulled her closer. She tried to push him away. His left hand moved down to the area between her legs, searching and finding her mons.

      Jesse Hightower was at wit's end trying to figure out how to make his baby daughter quit crying, finally he put his penis in her mouth as a substitute nipple and when his cum bathed her mouth, the child quietened and slept. Suspecting there might be some narcotic substance in his spend he repaired to his lab, beat off into a petri dish, and drank his sperm down. He found his semen's taste and smell compelling and intriguing. He set to work on synthesizing it soon enough was marketing millions of tons of chemically equivalent cum to the world. People gave up cigarettes and whiskey and took to sucking "Jessies", plasticized cocks identical in shape, coloration and texture to his own penis. In time, the word "Jesse" replaced all the other euphemisms for male genitalia. He became the modern day equivalent of Thomas Crapper or John Thomas.

      My brother Jerry had always been a real lady's man. When he went to Colorado State University in 1969, he left broken hearts all over Arizona where we lived.      Jerry is eight years older than I and was my childhood idol. I tried to emulate the smooth way he handled the babes. Unfortunately, I didn't have the knack like he did. Whenever Jerry would come home for spring break, his old girlfriends would start calling one our house looking for him, one right after the other. They just couldn't get enough of Jerry. He had at least five girls on the string. Whether they knew about each other, I never found out.

One longer, thinner cock tentacle had wrapped quickly around her neck, choking off the bitch's air supply. Another long, powerful tentacle had wrapped around her forehead to force-tilt her head back so that a third could force itself between her lips and begin to orally violate the hapless slut to stiffle her frantic screams for help.

She teaches them how to achieve a "zero masturbation" regime with a chastity device and regular stroking with the maternal hand between the filial thighs, while the maternal clothes are strewn around the filial bedroom floor - except the maternal shorts or briefs, which cover the main attraction. The device draws blood and the punishment for masturbation testicular, but Monica says it works.

He can hear a hundred miles, and see a hundred miles underwater. He doesn't care about anyone. He can hide in the shadow of the noon sun. He could be right behind you and you won't even know until you're dead !

      Upon entering the examination room, Dr. Chang said, "OK, take off all you crose." The woman did as she was told.

      Now, get down and craw reery reery fass to odder side of room." Again, the woman did as she was instructed.

      "Ed Zachary disease is when your face rook Ed Zachary rike your ass."

    Internet decency commission has no money
    By The Associated Press
    Special to CNET
    March 10, 2000, 9:25 a.m. PT

      WASHINGTON--At its first and only meeting so far, a new government panel that must tell
      Congress before the year's end about ways to keep Internet smut away from children found
      itself homeless and penniless.
      Established under the Child Online Protection Act, the 16-member Internet decency 
      commission quickly realized it has no funding and no federal agency to serve as its 
      host. Similar panels in Washington enjoy  budgets in excess of $1 million, roughly 
      the cost of a single Tomahawk cruise missile.
      This panel--whose members include executives from America Online, Yahoo, Network Solutions 
      and other top Internet companies, as well as educators and activists--is charged with 
      evaluating high-tech tools and other methods to keep online pornography away from children.
      But the failure by Congress to provide the commission with any money or resources raises 
      fundamental doubts about Washington's commitment to a problem that families are seriously 
      worried about.
      "Everyone agrees there is material on the Internet that's not appropriate for minors," 
      said John LoGalbo of PSINet. The company's founder, William L. Schrader, is on the 
      In one survey last spring, more than 75 percent of parents nationwide said they were 
      concerned their children might view sexually explicit images on the Internet. That 
      study by the University of Pennsylvania's Annenberg Public Policy Center questioned 
      1,102 parents with home computers.
      The money problems so dominated the commission's inaugural meeting earlier this week 
      that most of its time was spent wondering "how it was that we could do what we were 
      charged to do since we were not provided with any funding to do it," said C. James 
      Schmidt, a panel member and chief information officer at San Jose State University. 
      "It's a knotty problem."
      Lawmakers originally ordered the Commerce Department to provide staff and resources 
      under a clause in the otherwise contested 1998 law, which required commercial Web 
      sites to verify an adult's age before showing photographs or other material "harmful 
      to minors." Violators faced up to six months in prison and  $50,000 in fines.
      A federal judge later struck down those provisions as unconstitutional, and the case 
      is on appeal. The judge's ruling did not affect the panel, whose creation never was 
      But lawmakers failed to appoint anyone to the commission until last October, just two 
      days before the commission was due to go out of business. And when Congress reauthorized 
      the group for another 12 months and set a new deadline of Nov. 30 for its findings, it 
      neglected to order Commerce to fund it.
      A Commerce spokesman, Art Brodsky, said the agency agreed to allow the group to meet 
      this week at its downtown offices "out of the goodness of following congressional 
      intent and getting the process started."
      But he added: "We don't have any money in our budget for this."
      The commission, which expects to weigh different technologies against traditional 
      methods such as parental supervision, has decided to ask Congress directly for money, 
      even though some members represent companies worth billions of dollars.
      The group believes accepting contributions, from outsiders or its own members, "would 
      make whatever product came out suspect," Schmidt said.
      The panel will consider filtering software, which blocks Web sites deemed inappropriate 
      for children, as well as services from new Internet providers that allow access only to 
      approved sites. Many of its members appear to oppose mandated, legislative solutions.
      "We never underestimate the robustness and responsiveness of the market," LoGalbo said. 
      "Anything that can be done to allow the marketplace to work its magic is something we
