I have a challenge for you. Some of you have written before and your inspiration well has dried up. Others have yet to write. So I have both a challenge and a theme for you. I rather like the shorts boys used to wear when I was a kid, so I've made a collection of some pictures on Tumblr. Now Tumblr does have a habit of deleting things, so I make no warranty that the thing will be there in the future. But it's there now!

There are two collections. One is boys in shorts, and the other is included in it, and is boys in Lederhosen. The boys are just boys. You can write them as being any age you like. And I can't put the copyright picture on the site to show what inspired you, so you have to paint a picture in our heads. There are loads of pictures there.

Why Lederhosen? Because I had several pairs as a child, and I loved them. They stopped it hurting when my father used to smack me, silly sod.

Send me the stories in the normal way. What I want to do is to publish the ones I enjoy the most on the main site, and then place any that don't make the cut on this forum.

:thumbdown: No rape, no old men and little boys, those will fail to make either place.

Rather hoping at least someone will take the challenge up. I wonder how much inspiration you need?

I fear this is running rather quietly! Is anyone actually inspired? There is lots to inspire on Tumblr

Well, it is now too late for you to use that Tumblr blog for inspiration. Tumblr leaves seriously hard core porn online, something I have no problem with, and removes regularly all blogs containing wholesome young teenagers in clothes. The latter are against their terms and conditions, it seems. I'd been wondering how long it would stay up. Now I know. Longer than many, not as long as some. IT went today a few minutes ago. It's an interesting morality that allows hard core porn and not decent clad pictures of young folk. Perhaps I ought to have included some girls?

So, if you're actually going to do this, look for your own boys in shorts
