Measuring Down is a collection of fifteen stories of modified gender bending Most of these stories are set in female dominant societies. The stories are all humorous in the way they turn natural feelings topsy-turvy. To a greater or lesser degree, these stories involve the themes of gender role reversals, forced chastity, bondage, exhibitionism, female domination, and submission to or accepting the supremacy of women. Males are subjected to bizarre genital modifications including penis reduction, castration, genital mounding, pussification, or partial transgendering, as well as other forms of degradation and humiliation, including a shift from top to bottom as they accept the mastery of pegging or penetration with strap-on dildoes. These stories resulted from David Hollys thoughts about the philosophical and psychological nuances of the fear of emasculation, the predatory woman, and enforced male chastity. This led to a consideration of mother domination and the involuntary or compulsory genital modifications: for example, circumcision, as actually practiced by human beings. While our society maintains the pretense that every man wants a larger penis, there seems to be a fascination with them getting smaller (radically smaller) or even disappearing altogether.
