Jayse draws pictures of impossibly muscular young men having their male organs stretched and attacked by all manner of crushing and cutting devices and plants. Jayse carries on the genital punishment tradition of Falkon (see earlier A-Z article) but with extra explicitness. The examples included here are amongst the less alarming examples!
The drawing style is very simple cartooning for the most part but cleanly done. The 'hero's' face is always the same, square jaw, blond hair, cute nose and sometimes a little stubble for extra manliness. The classic All American Jock in other words although he can take on the persona of a GI or astronaut, for example, to invoke additional fetish themes. His physique is muscleman plus, everything is enormous but roughly in proportion (by the standards of musclemen) – except for the male organs which are excessively gigantic ('Gargantuan Gonads' as Jayse terms them). This artistic device enables their punishment and destruction to be presented in graphic detail.
Jayse - Pushing the Final Inch
Sometimes the Jock is depicted as a body-builder using the gym machines to punish himself - as in 'Pushing the Final Inch'. There is sense of fond mockery of body obsessed athletes in this. This is made explicit in 'The Cruelest Cut of All' (not shown here), where a body-builder smugly preens himself in front of a mirror enhancing his erection by pulling on his own balls whilst, unnoticed behind, a hooded intruder has inserted a wicked pair of shears between his legs and is about to detach them.
More often the Jock is a captive. Jayse's favoured bondage position is 'the spread' with arms and legs stretched out as far as possible from the target area. Jayse spells out the worst nightmare consequences of that vulnerable position.Jayse - Neuron WhipsHis suspended arching bodies are both artistic and erotic. Neuron whips is successful both as an artistic composition as well as an invocation of the eroticism of pain. Generally the assailant is unseen except for those parts (hands, tendrils, tools etc) used for carrying out the attack. Jayse leaves no stone unturned (literally!) in seeking out new and horrific techniques for emasculating his victims who nevertheless meet their fate with serene expressions on their faces. They are usually permitted one last compensatory ejaculation to reassure us that it's not as bad as it looks and they're enjoying it - really.
These drawings are whimsical but quite vicious and disturbing....and yet surprisingly erotic if you can get past the initial shock. Jayse's work isn't great art but it's simple intensity is the undistilled essence of S&M erotica.
