Fetishism Tales Vol 1::: The Collected Adventures of Barbara
A Story of Sexual Bias & Awareness with A Fetish Twist. A young womans coming of age story as she journeys through the NYC Fetish Scene
They Said it couldn't be done...
Making a story about fetish that was powerful...
That actually showed the humanity of those with fetishes...
done tastefully, beautifully and compelling without being overly sexual...
They Were Wrong.
Fetishism Tales Vol. 1 - Individual issues have traveled across the USA and inspired and educated people from all walks of life.
The story has made those who felt ostracized less alone, those curious now educated, and even those once against the idea, enlightened. Now collected in a over 120 page Masterpiece of educational material and understanding of what it is to have a fetish not BE a fetish. As Barbara says:
"I'm not looking to be saved, I'm looking to be taught."
Fetishism Tales is the title of the bigger series. We are excited to announce that 2 follow-up stories are planned in the series, Fetish Babies: Graduation and BDSM Mind Games.
FETISH BABIES GRADUATION
will come out in 2019, and unlike the original story this content will be more mature. We have looked at Fetish Babies as a beginners story and educational tool. We consider it the PG-13 story, while Graduation will be a more adult and sexual story making it a R rating. Across the world the one issue we have been told is Fetish Babies wasn't sexual enough. It's what we wanted, to have the reader begging for more...
BDSM MIND GAMES
will not be for a casual reader. Slated for 2020 it will go into the deeper effects of play and even the more dangerous. While this isn't a Batman comic don't be surprised if we show off a Wayne. This story will be intense, and at times, challenge the idea of the BDSM culture itself. If made into a movie we could not see it getting anything less than an NC-17 rating.
The Philosophy Behind the story
This story is dedicated to those born with a fetish for BDSM, to let you know you’re not alone. This story is our way to show the world more about who we are and disprove many misconceptions about people who have fetishes. The biggest misconception that there is, is that somehow there is something wrong with anyone who has a fetish. In this day and age of acceptance, of all types of people, those who have fetishes are still looked down upon and treated like damaged goods.
Unlike other stories told about BDSM, this is created by two creators who have been into the Fetish Scene and actually have fetishes. While none of the stories are real they are based on personal experiences and based on a combined 40 years of study, experience and exploration into fetishes and BDSM. This makes the story feel very real and shows a true side of what it is to have a fetish, something often not seen before in mainstream media.
We also want to express the fact that a running theme for Fetish Babies will be for you, the reader, to draw your own conclusions. The story is written to never preach but rather examine the intense relationships born out of fetish/BDSM and the dangers and rewards within those relationships. As well, if we do our job right, the ongoing series will be a learning tool, a guide to the NYC fetish underground as well as an opportunity to show to the world both how intense having a fetish/BDSM relationship can be - all the while showing how normal most people with fetishes really are. We are your teachers, your lawyers, your postal workers, law enforcement, etc... and your friends.
MEET THE TEAM behind
FETISHISM TALES VOL. 1 THE FETISH BABY
Rob Andersin: Creator, Head Writer, and Life Long Bondage Freak Rob
Mr. Andersin was born with a fetish for Bondage, amongst other things. He discovered this at a very early and awkward age in the late 80's, early 90's. He was terrified by these kinky ideas in his head, that puberty had brought on. Worse was, at the time, the only place he could get information about fetishes was at a public library via medical studies, most of which called him a deviant and mentally disturbed for his thoughts. For years Rob hid his kinky thoughts from all. Rob was afraid to talk to anyone about something that was a big part of him, that he was trying to understand and having to hide it made him feel very alone. Luckily the 1990's came and ushered in the internet and a commercial openness to BDSM. However, Rob never forgot how horrible and scary the experiences were for him and actually went on to write a Bondage manual on safety. The book read more like a textbook - or worse, stereo instructions that even bored Rob to read. He would write many pieces on random sites based on BDSM safety and even helped people through abuse and how to better understand how to play Safe. One day, and while talking to his Co-Parent and Fetish Babies Co-Creator Alyssa about creating comics, she challenged him to make a comic about bondage using what he knew. He said he would but needed her help to do it right and their partnership in creation was born.
Alyssa Andersin: Co-Writer of FETISH BABIES and AFTERMATH, Art Director, Cookie Making Goddess
Alyssa Andersin was introduced into the Fetish world by Rob Andersin and was both shocked and saddened by the number of abused women in the NYC Fetish scene. Having been introduced to fetish by Rob, who always explained and took his time to teach Alyssa about all things fetish, had left her unaware of the number of dangers in the fetish scene and the often-avoidable mistakes newbies make. Alyssa wanted to change this and to show that abuse does not have to go hand and hand with Fetishes/BDSM. Alyssa firmly believes no one has to go through abuse, pay their dues or be taken advantage of, to learn about BDSM or be "trained". This belief has led her to want to be involved in Fetish Babies. It is Alyssa who brings the humanity to the characters and makes the story both believable and an emotional roller coaster. Alyssa is also well known for her cookies at fetish events for years till she relocated to Florida, but that is a whole different story and a different comic book.

and The BEST DUNGEON in NYC
Fetish Babies, AFTERMATH, and MENTOR SEARCH follow a young woman's journey of self discovery as she travels though the NYC fetish underground:
Not everyone is introduced to kinky things, some people are born with a need that haunts their minds even from early in life. This urge is referred to as a Fetish.
The medical definition of fetish: an object or bodily part whose real or fantasized presence is psychologically necessary for sexual gratification and that is an object of fixation to the extent that it may interfere with complete sexual expression.
Barbara was born in a small town and very early on she knew she had a fetish for bondage. Being in a small town she knew she could never be accepted for who she was and had to hide her desires. She worked hard in school and got a ticket out of small town life via a full scholarship to a college in NYC. Living in NYC had become an obsession for Barbara, not because it was NYC, but because of the hidden fetish underground of NYC. NYC was a place where she could be accepted for who she was, fetishes and all. Barbara gets her wish and journeys to NYC but what is that saying? Be careful what you wish for? If NYC can eat you alive just living and working there, imagine what the city's underground fetish scene can do to a very excited and eager to explore young woman. Join her adventures and misadventures as she learns the difference between fantasy and reality and watch as she grows and learns who she is in the most exciting city in the world's fetish underground.
