Jan is a thirty year old man who harbors a fascination for rubber, bondage, suspension, chastity and a number of other fetishes associated with alternative lifestyles. He becomes financially independent working in the IT industry, and purchases a home on two hundred remote acres where he can pursue his passions without interference from the outside world. The only sticking point - the continuing lack of a competent lady who'd be totally dedicated to his needs. As a possible substitute for a real female, he purchases a device called 'Confidante' - a high-tech handheld featuring all the most recent technological advancements. In addition to the usual computing and telephone functions, the device includes speech recognition, retinal scans, learning capabilities that would boggle the mind. He programs the device to handle numerous domestic chores, and utilizes a headset to maintain a constant link with 'Connie'. Later, he opts to have 'her' implanted in his lower abdomen so their connection will be seamless and he'll never need worry about a power source. Using a sub-vocalization capability, Jan and 'Connie' communicate without speech, and when his mind drifts into the kinky world of his sexual fantasies, she is inside his thoughts, asking questions. When Jan realizes that he can program Connie to become his Dream Domme, he enthusiastically charges down a path of submission unaware of the alarming fate that awaits him. Able to reprogram herself without Jan's knowledge, Connie assumes complete control. Taking her cues from his own fantasies, she orders all the items she needs for Jan's enslavement over the Internet and begins a thorough transformation process that will turn Jan into a creature he no longer recognizes. Is there any escape? Or will his life be forever owned by his merciless Domme? A chilling tale about the union of man and machine with all its terrifying possibilities. Bonus Story: Horse-Men. They'd written their fantasies and acted them out with their ladies, but now the tables have been turned. For a joke and at the urging of their wives, they put on the male versions of the Harnesses, only to find themselves transported to a real Discipline Establishment with no hope of escape from their fate.
