Dinner passed uneventfully. Michelle and Ruby were home in time to eat with Mindy, Cindy, and me, and we all enjoyed the late meal that Cindy had made.

When we finished, I helped clean up and do the dishes. (Just because I'm the master, doesn't mean I shouldn't help out.) We still had half an hour or so until Sue Ellen came home. So I told Mindy, who was the only other one in the kitchen with me at the time, that I was going to remove the spy camera in Nicky's room and cover up the remaining peep hole there.

Mindy stopped what she was doing and turned to me. "Are you sure that's wise?"

"Of course it's wise. I'm not going to live in a fishbowl, with my own daughters spying on me!"

"I'm not suggesting you do that. But maybe you could just dismantle the camera so it doesn't work. If you completely remove it, you know what's going to happen? Nicky is going to use her closet shortly after coming home, and she'll notice the spy equipment is gone! What is she going to think? Since I already knew about it, the only logical conclusion is that you found out about it and removed it. Thus, you know that she was spying on you too! And how will that change your relationship with her?"

I countered, "I thought about that, but she doesn't necessarily have to jump to those conclusions. What if you tell her that you decided to remove it due to the fact that Cindy and Ruby are living here? Plus, by the time she gets back, we'll have to break it to her that Sue Ellen is living here too. With all those new people, you can say it was just too risky to keep the spying operation going."

"I suppose..." Mindy said reluctantly. "Do you really think she'll buy that?"

"Sure. Think about it. The peep hole was there for years and I never found out about it. Why should she think that's changed all of a sudden? Whereas Cindy, Ruby, and Sue Ellen moving in is something happening now. So that makes sense."

"I suppose..." Mindy said again. She seemed very reluctant. "I think you make a good argument, but I also think she'll at least suspect that you found out about the spying but don't want to say anything directly so everyone can avoid embarrassment. By the way, do you want me to lie to her about this?"

"In a word, yes! I know that's immoral, but it's better than the alternative. Call it a white lie. It's much better that she buys the excuse I just gave you instead of thinking that I know or suspect how much she's spied on you and me. Like you said, that could change our relationship, and I don't see how it would change for the better."

Mindy nodded. But then she said, "Of course, there's the other option of simply disabling the camera."

"True. But the problem is I don't trust that. What if it's disabled and then secretly replaced or fixed by the Gruesome Twosome? What if they buy a second duplicate camera and then switch them back and forth so that even when I spot check the camera I'm still fooled? As long as there's a hole of any kind there, I don't feel I have any true privacy in my own bedroom, and that's not a good feeling."

She nodded again. "Agreed. I guess you've thought this through more than me. And that makes sense since you're the one who they're keen on spying on so much. Whatever you want to do, I'll support you all the way."

"Thank you."

I went upstairs and removed the spy camera from the back of Nicky's closet. Then I got to work on filling the remaining hole and plastering it up.

Michelle and Ruby found out about what I was doing and they came to Nicky's room to watch me. They knew my strong feelings about being spied on, so they didn't try to talk me out of it or argue they should keep the spy camera. (That was NOT going to happen regardless!) Instead, they were more wistful and even mournful. They looked on the peep hole like an old friend, and they were on the verge of getting teary seeing it go.

I, on the other hand, couldn't have been happier. Even though I understood the peep hole had been a key part of the process that turned Michelle and Ruby into my cock slaves and thus gave me the harem I loved so much, that didn't mean I had to like it. Besides, I certainly didn't want to keep being spied on now.

I also planned to follow Cindy's recent suggestions to buy some equipment to check my bedroom and other rooms for bugs and other hidden electronic equipment. But that would come later, when I had time to do the necessary shopping. Given the sex boycott I was about to announce, there was no rush, since there wouldn't be any sexual fun to spy on for many days to come.

While I was fixing the hole, Sue Ellen came home. She quickly ate some of the dinner Cindy had made that we'd set aside for her.

I was tempted to perform a Silken Bondage ritual on her, but I refrained because I didn't want people getting aroused right then. She still had her underwear on, and it was good if it stayed that way at least a little longer.

So, finally, there was nothing stopping me from giving my big sex boycott speech.

Everyone gathered in the living room at my request. It was nine-thirty. I sat in my Dream Chair, and the others sat on sofas facing me. We were all fully dressed in "normal" clothing. Everyone was anxious, because we all know something very important was about to happen.

I said, "Good evening, ladies. Let's call this the second official family harem meeting. Unfortunately, it's going to be nothing like the first one we had yesterday, because we have unpleasant things to discuss."

I stared at each of them one by one before continuing. All of them were too ashamed to meet my eyes for more than a second or two. "Let me set some background first. I'm a very lucky and happy man to have a harem made up of such loving, kind, and beautiful women. I love you all more than words can say. I love the sex we have more than words can say. I truly am living a blessed, charmed life."

I went on, "That said, I didn't seek to become a harem master. It's something that kind of just happened to me. I guess that's due to some combination of your Plan" - I looked at Michelle and Ruby, who were sitting together, as usual - "and your cucquean tendencies." I looked to Mindy. "The three of you were the prime movers in foisting this upon me. And I'm grateful, I really am. It worked out for the best."

I kept staring at Mindy while I spoke. "That said, this is a part of a long-term trend, and I don't like the trend. Namely, Mindy, you do what you think is best and then you present it to me as a fait accompli. It so happens that most of the time you have pretty good ideas that make our lives better. But still, that's not how a marriage should work. I've been too lax in letting you get your way all the time, because that was the path of least resistance for me, and it always seemed to work out well enough."

I went on, "Now that you're on this cucquean kick, I feel like I'm your puppet on a string. Sure, most men would kill to have a cucquean wife who loves to have him fuck other women, but it has a big downside too. I'm not saying we need to totally change. I love all the sex! Not to mention all the love and friendship that's forming and growing. But some change is needed. You need to be punished heavily for manipulating me, pushing me around, spying on me, and more."

Seeing everyone flinch at my mention of "and more" had me wondering what else they might been cooking up.

I turned my gaze to the Gruesome Twosome. "As for you two, I hardly need to say anything. Everybody knows that you're both notoriously willful. But you, Michelle, you're the worst! The two of you push and push and push some more, like spoiled little children. You always have to get your way. And that's because you ARE spoiled! Mindy and I tried our best not to spoil you girls, and we worked with Cindy on that too, but we couldn't control what was happening at school and with your friends and everything else. Due to your great beauty, not to mention your charisma, you got used to getting your way. Both of you. And Mindy, Cindy, and I probably were too soft, despite our best efforts. We loved you too much to get really tough the way we needed to."

Surprisingly, the Hellions didn't try to say anything in their defense. Both of them were looking very cowed, meek, and regretful, as was Mindy.

I continued, "As it turns out, what you two wanted most of all was to have sex with me."

I was watching them very closely. Their eyes were downcast so they weren't looking at me, because I'm sure if they had been they wouldn't have done what I saw them do when I leveled my accusation at them: both girls smiled.

Granted, it wasn't a big obvious grin from ear to ear, but rather a twitching upward quirk of the corners of their mouths. No doubt about it, they were proud of themselves and the way they'd sexually seduced me!

I continued, "More than that, for some strange reason, you wanted to become my sex slaves, which we now call cock slaves. You've literally trained your hearts, minds, and especially your bodies to live for passion, lust, and sex! All with me, and for me! It seems as if your number one goal is to be in every sense of the word ENSLAVED to my cock and balls! You want me to USE you for my pleasure as well as your own!"

I watched Ruby and Michelle glance at each other, and saw their lusty smiles get bigger. I'd kind of expected it, but it was somewhat bizarre to see that my tirade against them was actually turning them on.

I threw up my hands and gasped in exasperation. "How could I resist that? Especially with the way you spoil me with such intense sexual pleasure, passion, and enthusiasm nearly all the time. All of you do. But just because what you want and I want dovetail most of the time, that doesn't mean I should let you get your way all the time. Sometimes what we want comes into conflict. And then you walk all over me. You call me your 'Master' and you claim to be my cock slaves, but in reality you don't really mean it."

With that, Michelle couldn't keep quiet. She looked up at me and protested, "We DO really mean it! In fact, there's nothing MORE important to us! NOTHING! We're not just playing, and we're not just here as some temporary fad. This is for real, and forever! We see ourselves as your cock slaves first and foremost, until the days we die. It's who we are. It's what we do. It's the most important thing in our lives, bar none!"

Ruby didn't speak, but she nodded emphatically.

Michelle added, "It's true sometimes that we've been disobedient, but that's because you're so slow on the uptake. Basically, you don't know what's good for you a lot of the time. Had we not 'pushed and pushed and pushed,' none of this would have happened! None of it! When we've disobeyed you, we've had good reasons!"

Ruby added, "And we do it with LOVE! We love you and want to spend more time with you. We strive to become better cock slaves so we can make you happy. I know we're selfish sometimes, but most of the time, it's our love and lust for you that drives us on!"

I nodded. "I'm well aware of that, believe me. But like I said, we don't always see eye to eye. And when you're wrong, you're spectacularly wrong. Look for instance how you want Nicky to join the harem. I don't want to debate the merits of that, or we'll get sidetracked. The point is, that's something I don't want and you do, which makes it a huge issue. If I don't put my foot down, you're going to keep on scheming behind my back trying to make that happen. At least you will, Shelle. Ruby might be trying to be a good and obedient slave on that. Emphasis on 'might.' The jury's still out in her case."

I went on, "The fact is, ladies, I'M the master here. This harem can't work as a headless entity. It needs a leader, and that leader HAS to be me! It's the very nature of a harem. The slaves can't rule. You KNOW this! You wanted it that way and helped make it that way. It's best for all of us if I can establish and maintain real control over the harem. We'll have less conflict and more fun and sexual joy. That doesn't mean I'm going to push you around and have my way all the time. I consider myself a benign master."

Sue Ellen cut in. "Oh, you are! You're so loving and kind!"

"Thank you. But that's part of the problem. I'm an accidental master in the sense that this whole thing kind of just dropped in my lap. I'm probably too nice and easy-going, and not dominating enough, especially for cock slaves as willful as some of you have been. We got this far okay, but that mostly because we've happened to all want the same things. Moving forward, more problems are bound to emerge, and I need to step up into the role and act more the way masters typically do. That's what I've been trying to do in varying ways, but only with limited success. For instance, with initiating daily spanking sessions. The idea there is sexy spankings reward good behavior, and harsh spankings or even 'love tap' spankings punish bad behavior."

Michelle muttered, "I hate those!" Undoubtedly, she was referring to the 'love tap' spankings.

I went on, "With things like that, I'm trying to be more of a leader. The way you all pushed and pushed to create this harem worked for doing that, but it doesn't work for keeping the harem running. It's just like how a style that works for a politician to run a winning campaign often doesn't work for that same politician when he or she is trying to actually administer things once in power. We're also going to have conflicts and disagreements to some degree, and that's fine. But in the end, the buck needs to stop with me!"

I paused for effect, and then asked, "Does anyone disagree with that?"

There was a telling silence.

But I wanted more clear confirmation than that. "Let's put it this way, then. Can we all agree that, as master, I need to take firmer control of this harem?"

They all nodded.

"Good. Now, let's get to what I actually plan to do. Sue Ellen and Cindy, understand that I'm not really mad at you. So far, you've been good cock slaves. Cupcake, you in particular have been the model of how a cock slave should behave."

Sue Ellen beamed and briefly bowed her head bashfully. "Thank you, Master. You're too kind!"

"Cindy, you, by contrast, have been a mixed bag. Sometimes you've been good, and sometimes you've sided with Mindy or the Gruesome Twosome with their schemes to manipulate me. Now, I'm not planning on punishing you directly tonight. Nor will I punish Sue Ellen. But I hope you'll see how I'm punishing the other three, and learn from that so I don't have to punish you in the future. Understood?"

Cindy and Sue Ellen submissively bowed their heads and spoke as one. "Yes, Master."

"Good. Time will tell. Now, between my wife and my two daughters, I feel like I've been pushed around on a daily basis. A classic example happened earlier tonight. I was taking part in a webcam chat with Nicky, and Mindy reached into my lap and attempted to jack me off. What happened there, and happens over and over, is that she let her lust get the best of her. Yes, it was very pleasurable and thrilling, to the point that I didn't have the willpower to resist. But we're not just creatures of lust and urges. We have an inner voice that says 'yes,' but we also have a voice that sometimes says 'no.' Mindy, Michelle and Ruby, lately, the three of you get so horny that it's like you don't know when to say 'no.' It's times like that when you need to listen to your master and OBEY. Can we all agree on that?"

All five women nodded.

"Do I need to give all of you a lecture on how 'no means no' when I say it?"

All five of them dutifully shook their heads. Ruby, I was pleased to see, was the most emphatic.

"Good. Now, here's what I'm going to do. First, I'm going to tell you something that you'll think is very great news. But don't get too excited, because I'm going to immediately follow it with something that you'll find very BAD news. Understand? Stay calm and quiet until I finish!"

They all nodded again. They were starting to get a lot more anxious.

"I've been thinking about what has become known as the 'dating stinky boys' problem. Namely, my desire for you to kiss and date boys so you won't be entirely corrupted by wanting to have sex with me and me alone. The idea there is that you'd eventually go your own way, get married, have kids, and so on."

Stony silence met my pause. Ruby looked angry. Michelle looked downright mutinous.

I paused. "I've changed my mind."

The transformation on the faces of the Gruesome Twosome was truly a sight to behold. Suddenly, they were full of hope and anticipation. I wish I had a camera to capture their looks of stunned amazement. What really shocked me though wasn't the hopeful expressions on their faces, but rather the way they both unconsciously spread their legs towards me as they leaned forward, hanging on my every word.

I continued, "Michelle and Ruby, the truth is, I've quickly grown addicted to having you as my cock slaves. Even though we haven't actually fucked yet, we all know it's just a matter of time until we do. And once we do, once I've got you mounted on my cock, and I'm inside of you, well, we all know there will be no turning back. The truth of the matter is, I get insanely jealous even thinking about you kissing any boys, no matter how stinky they may be."

Michelle jumped up and shouted, "YES!" She punched a triumphant fist into the air, and looked at Ruby excitedly. But then she remembered to stay quiet, and reluctantly sat back down.

I ignored that outburst. "I'm not a psychic. I can't look far into the future. I still hope you two will settle down and have kids someday. But the simple truth is, I can't willingly give you up. You're MINE, dammit! In just two weeks, I've become hopelessly addicted to this lifestyle. And, I like to tell myself that if I keep you as my slaves, I'm saving you from a much worse fate as porn stars or prostitutes or slaves to a cruel master, or maybe all three at once. And I think that's really true. You live for sex, with me and the others in this group. That means you're not fated for the normal married life, at least not any time even remotely soon. So I'm going to drop my 'stinky boys' demand altogether. I love having you as my cock slaves, and I hope you'll continue to serve me, and my cock, for many years to come."

Michelle and Ruby looked at each other in disbelief. Then they looked back at me as if they couldn't believe their ears. It was exactly like they'd been told they'd won a lottery worth billions of dollars! They started screaming, hugging each other, and jumping around!

Mindy, Cindy, and Sue Ellen were quiet, but from their facial expressions, it was clear they all shared in Michelle's and Ruby's joy.

I knew I had to speak quickly before the celebration got out of hand. "MICHELLE! RUBY! LISTEN TO ME!"

The two of them were bouncing while hugging, like they were holding each other on a trampoline. However, they more or less stilled themselves and looked my way, even though they continued to quiver with excitement.

"That's the good news. Now, brace yourself for the bad news. You would think that if I'm dropping my 'stinky boys' demand, there's nothing stopping us from finally fucking."

"YES!" They both exuberantly screamed at once. They resumed their joyous hugging and bouncing.

"Hold on! Hold on! I said 'you would think!' Because that's not true. We STILL can't go all the way!"

THAT stopped their celebrations cold.

"Why not?!" Michelle finally asked in confusion and disbelief.

"Because I realized about a week ago the main problem I really had wasn't the actual kissing of boys or things like that. It's that you two are so spoiled and always getting your way on everything. If I were to have full-on sex with you, that would remove the one major tool I had to at least sometimes curb your behavior. So I couldn't do that."

They were standing still and listening closely now, although they kept on hugging each other for support.

"Here's my new idea. Your sex boycott is over, right?"

"Yes, of course!" Michelle said.

Ruby added, "Let's fuck tonight! Why wait?! OH GOD!" It looked like she was dizzy just from thinking about that, and she had to squeeze Michelle tighter to keep from falling.

"Hold on, already! YOUR sex boycott is over, but MINE is just beginning. I'm still not going to have sex with you. In fact, I'm not going to allow any kind of intimate, sexual contact with you whatsoever!"

The Hellions stood there with their mouths hanging open. After a long pause, Michelle angrily asked, "Say what?!" She broke from Ruby and put her hands on her hips.

"You heard me. I'm going to have a total sex boycott with you two UNTIL I make my point. And that point is that I'm the one in control, with the self-control. I have an entire harem at my disposal to serve my sexual pleasure, and I have tempting options like Laura, Nina, or Anjali besides. I love both of you very, very much, and that will never change. However, I could go for a long, long time without having any kind of sexual contact with either of you, and I'd be perfectly fine. Whereas the two of you would suffer greatly."

Michelle said with great alarm, "That's true that you could, but why would you?! That would be nothing but cruel!"

"Exactly. It would be a mean punishment. But you know what else it would be? It would be an effective punishment! THAT is the main way I'm going to get you to actually obey me as your master. Not just when it suits you and arouses you and you happen to feel like it, but all the time. For real. You'll be real cock slaves and not just pretending."

Ruby gesticulated wildly, and wailed, "I don't understand what's happening! Please make it stop! What are you saying?!"

"I'm saying, as of right now, I'm starting a total sexual boycott with you two. I'm not going to have any kind of sex with you. No blowjobs, no titfucks, no handjobs, nothing. I won't touch your private parts and you won't touch mine. No sexy spankings either. As to how long the boycott lasts, that remains to be seen. It will last as long as I deem it necessary. My purpose is to get you two to understand that I mean business. You'll understand that I can go without sex with either of you much, much easier than either of you can go without sex with me."

They stared at me with abject horror. Even the other women looked surprised and alarmed.

"I'm not sure how long it'll take. I'm sure it'll be AT LEAST a week or two. Probably more. It could be much more. You might hold out for months! We'll see."

Michelle was aghast. "A WEEK?! Are you kidding me?! I can't go without slurping and bobbing on your great fat cock for more than a DAY!"

But then she had a sudden change of attitude and stepped forward. Her head was submissively bowed. "I give up right now! You win! What you're suggesting is far too scary for me to even contemplate!"

Ruby stepped forward too. "Me too! Whatever you want, you've got it! We surrender! Totally!"

I grinned. "I thought you'd say that. But that means nothing. Words are cheap. You have to truly feel it. It's like, if I explain to a child who has never seen fire before not to touch it, they'll agree to that easily enough. But they won't truly get it until they actually touch the flame and get burned. That will literally burn into their memory for all time in the way mere words never could. In the same way, you need to truly experience this sex boycott, and suffer from it, before you truly understand that I'm the master and disobedience will have severe consequences."

The two of them moaned and groaned in agony.

I continued, "In the future, I'm going to institute a series of gradually escalating punishments for any of my cock slaves who disobey me. It will start with something small for small infractions, like the withdrawal of the Silken Bondage ceremony. If your disobedience is greater, I'll respond with harsh spankings and the like. Then, if it's greater still, I'll react with partial or even total sex boycotts for as long as it takes to make my point."

Ruby took another step forward. "You have me convinced! I'm sold! I totally believe you. I know that you can get tough when you want to, and now you're getting tough. So we don't need a sex boycott for an entire WEEK! We really don't!"

Michelle nodded emphatically. "She's right! We so believe you! I've never believed anything more in my life! Please! Don't be cruel!"

I replied, "You say that now, but come tomorrow or the next day, you'll be spying on me, scheming, and generally trying to get your way."

"No we won't!" Michelle and Ruby said at once.

"Yes, you will! For instance, are you going to give up on your notion that Nicky should join the harem just like that?" I snapped my fingers. "Do you really expect me to believe I'll never have any trouble with that again?"

They were silent, and looked abashed.

"A-ha!" I proclaimed. "See what I mean?"

Michelle wailed, "We totally agree, except for that one thing! How can you expect us to abandon and betray our sister?! You're going to pit our loyalty and love towards you against our love of her?! How cruel is that?!"

I spoke grimly. "See what I mean? You agree in theory, but in fact you don't really feel the sting. When I say I well and truly don't want to have sex with her, you blow it off like I must be mistaken. It's just like the example I gave about fire. You have to get burned at least once to get it. So, like I said, the sex boycott starts now. I'll decide when it's over. You can try to dress sexy around me and tempt me, but the more you do that, the longer my boycott will last. If you want it to end, you need to behave like perfect angels. Understood?"

They both nodded fearfully.

Michelle muttered to Ruby under her breath, but just loud enough for me to hear. "This sucks! Big time!"

Ruby muttered back, "Totally!"

That gladdened me a little bit, because it suggested to me that I was on the right track. It was essential that I not give in too quickly. Actions spoke much louder than words.

I looked to Mindy, Cindy, and Sue Ellen. "So now you see my big plan. This is the main way I plan to maintain control of my harem. And what works for them will work for you too. If any of you are bad, the same series of punishments will apply, including a total sex boycott. As time goes on, I'll probably think of other things too. Anything that works I'm willing to try. Is that understood?"

The three of them nodded gravely.

I focused my attention on Mindy. "Now, Sweetheart, it's your turn."

She blanched. "Uh-oh!"

"You may think all my attention was on our daughters and you got off scot-free, but that's not true. I just haven't gotten to you yet. You've been just as disobedient and troublesome as them, but in your own way. So I'm going to do the exact same thing: effectively immediately, I'm proclaiming a total sex boycott with you."

She gasped. "No! Oh no!"

"Oh yes. I'm sorry. It's going to pain me too. All of this is going to pain me greatly, believe me. But I'm convinced this is absolutely necessary. Like with the girls, I don't know how long the boycott will last, but I imagine it'll be for a week or two, at minimum. It could go much longer. And there's nothing you can say to get me to change my mind. Just like with the girls, if you say you've learned your lesson already, I won't believe you."

Mindy said, "I HAVE learned my lesson. Like Ruby said, I KNOW that you can be firm when you put your mind to it, and clearly you're determined about this. So you've already won. But I also understand your point about fire. It's probably true that I won't really 'get it' until I well and truly feel it. So... boycott away. This next week plus is going to be miserable, but in the end it'll strengthen our marriage and our harem. I can cope."

"Good. That's a much better attitude than how our daughters are reacting. But then again, you're more mature. With any luck, perhaps your boycott can come to an end before theirs. I hope so, because I can already tell theirs is not going to be a short one."

Michelle protested, "Daddy, that's no fair! You dropped your bomb on us first. When Mom saw our reaction didn't work, she tried something else!"

I shrugged. "Maybe so. But it doesn't really matter. Nothing you say now is going to shorten the boycott at all. It's something that has to play itself out."

I turned my gaze to Sue Ellen and Cindy. "As for you two, I'll bet you wonder where you fit in with all this."

They looked scared, very scared. They nodded.

"Like I said, I'm not mad at all. I'm hoping you'll learn your lesson to behave and obey by watching what happens to the others. So we're still good. WE can still be intimate and have sex. In fact, we'll probably do it more than ever before, as long as I can't with the other three."

Sue Ellen and Cindy sighed with great relief. Their entire postures relaxed. Clearly, this was a big deal for everyone.

I continued, "Given that I can't have sex with Mindy for some time, it doesn't make sense for me to sleep in the same bed with her. That would be far too tempting for both of us. So then, I thought about where I should sleep. I decided that anywhere in the house is too tempting. If anyone were to crack and start having sex with me, the best time to do it would be when I'm asleep or just waking up. Therefore, I'm going to stay at the McGrath house for as long as my sex boycott lasts."

Cindy asked, "MY house?! Why my house?!"

"Think about it. It's literally down the street, so it's very convenient. Just because I won't be sleeping here doesn't mean I'll be avoiding this house altogether. I'll be coming and going fairly frequently. I know you and Ruby have just moved all of your personal things out of the house, but it still has nearly all the furniture, minus a few things we decided to have in here. It still has a bed and a fridge and all the essentials. The power is still on and it hasn't been rented yet. In fact, the timing couldn't be more ideal."

Mindy was on the verge of tears. "It'll be so sad! To have you so close yet so far... To have that big bed empty... Oh God! Even Cindy won't be there to comfort me, will she?"

"No, she won't. I figure Sue Ellen and Cindy will be sleeping with me most nights. That's part of the whole point of this thing. Even when a couple of you are disobedient at the same time, I'll always have others to sleep with and have sex with. Hell, all five of you could be punished at the same time, and I'd still get by. If I really need to get laid, I could call up Anjali or Laura or someone like that. But I don't really need to get laid. I can go with not much, or even completely without, for quite a while. You'll see."

Mindy asked sorrowfully, "Can I still hug you?"

"As long as it's not a come on with you being naked or something like that, sure."

She immediately ran into my arms and squeezed me tight. She started to sob and wail. "Oh, Dan! I'm going to miss you so much! Not having sex with you, I could handle that for a while, like I have at times on my business trips. But to have you sleeping down the street is just so tragic! It's like we're divorcing!"

I stroked her back comfortingly. "We're NOT divorcing. Not even close. This is just a minor bump in the road in the larger scheme of things. I told you earlier today that the roots of our marriage run very deep. Nothing can keep us apart for long, not even ourselves. I'm confident that you'll get my intended message soon. Then we'll be back together, and better than before."

She wailed, "Are you sure?! Promise me!"

"I promise! Because our love will get us through any troubled waters. You were getting out of hand with this cucquean stuff. A some of that is great, but you were showing no restraint at all. This is a necessary evil to get us back on track."

I could feel her head nodding against my chest while the tears continued to pour.

I comforted her for a couple of minutes.

I'd lost track of what the others were doing. Eventually, I looked around. Cindy and Sue Ellen were still sitting in place, silent and looking thoughtful.

Michelle and Ruby were standing as they'd been since they'd started hugging and jumping around. They were quietly talking to each other. They looked surprisingly calm. I thought for sure they'd be crying just as much as Mindy, if not more, but they hadn't shed any tears at all.

With Mindy still crying in my arms, I said, "Shelle. Ruby. What's up? I can see you don't seem that upset. That surprises me. Is that because you think you're going to beat the boycott?"

Michelle turned to me and said, "On the contrary. We're toast, and we know it. We're going to learn a painful lesson, and there's no getting around it. It's like watching a slow-mo car crash before it happens, and yet not being able to stop it."

"Then why is it you don't look that upset?"

Michelle and Ruby looked at each other. They seemed reluctant to confess something to me.

Finally, after some unspoken agreement between them, Ruby said to me, "We're feeling emotional, believe me. But we're trying hard not to jump around for joy some more, because that might upset you."

"What?! Explain."

Michelle said, "Sure, we're upset about your sex boycott. Normally, we'd be absolutely devastated about it. But you've also told us that you've given up on trying to force us to date stinky boys. That's HUGE!"

Ruby said with growing excitement, "It's not just that; it's your attitude! You've come to terms with the fact that we're going to be your cock slaves for life! That's huger than huge! That's titanic! It's epic! The sex boycott is terrible, but that's only going to last a couple of weeks, maybe a couple of months at most. That's NOTHING compared to the years and years we'll spend getting fucked by your cock and serving your cock in every way possible!"

Michelle elaborated, "So maybe you can see why we're a lot happier than sad. After the initial shock, we're looking at the bigger picture. We're going to lose the upcoming battle, sure, but we've just won the much, much, MUCH bigger war!"

At that, the two of them couldn't contain themselves, and they resumed their hugging and bouncing around. They managed to high-five each other some too. Then they French kissed.

I was chagrined. This was not the reaction I was expecting, that's for sure. But their reaction was understandable, if they put it that way. They were right that my acceptance of their cock slave roles was a much bigger deal in the long run.

Unfortunately, in the short term that would probably make my sex boycott goal more difficult to achieve. They wouldn't be feeling the sting of the boycott much if they were in a celebratory mood. That just confirmed my suspicion that this boycott would have to last for a while. The big question was if I could resolve it before Nicky got back home. Things would be very difficult and suspicious if she came back to find a highly emotional crisis going on.

So, although I spoke about being able to take as much time as necessary to get my way, in truth, I was under considerable time pressure. This was not going to be easy.

I continued to comfort my crying wife for a while. Clearly, the things that buoyed the Gruesome Twosome did little to cheer her up.

After a while, Sue Ellen and Cindy came over and wrapped their arms around Mindy and me. Then Michelle and Ruby joined in, turning it into a big, fully platonic, group hug.

That group support finally cheered Mindy up enough to stop crying.

After some more small talk, which mostly took the form of me assuring everyone else that we would get through this and come out the other side better for it, the meeting finally came to an end. By then, even the Gruesome Twosome were in a sad and sober mood again.

I went upstairs to pack a bag of my most useful things. I told Cindy and Sue Ellen that I was planning on sleeping at the McGrath house tonight, so they decided to join me and they each packed a bag as well.

A short time later, the three of us returned downstairs, where Mindy was talking with Michelle and Ruby. They saw us with our bags, and that caused all three of them to start crying.

There was a big emotional scene at the foyer. I won't go into detail about it, but pretty much everyone ended up crying, including me. It was tough for me, but I hardened my heart and left the house with Sue Ellen and Cindy.

Actually, it wasn't that big of a deal, in practical terms. I made clear before I left that I would be back tomorrow morning. But the symbolism of it was massive. It left all of us very upset.

For a moment, I even had a fear that I'd spent my last night in the same bed with Mindy, and that everything would go to hell. But I quickly realized that I was being ridiculous. We WOULD get through this and come out all the better for it.

It was late, so all I wanted to do was go straight to bed. I found Cindy's bed upstairs. It was a double bed from when she'd been married to Rex. But still, it felt small compared to the huge one I was leaving. Still, it felt a lot better when I had Cindy cuddled up naked to me on one side and Sue Ellen cuddled up to me naked on my other side.

The three of us were too sad and moody to even think about having sex, despite our nudity. Sue Ellen and Cindy just wanted to be held and comforted, and frankly, so did I. After some loving talk and reassuring kisses, all three of us felt a lot better.

We fell asleep before too long while spooned up closely and entangled together. I was too emotionally exhausted from the busy and trying day, and the evening's big meeting in particular, to stay up late ruminating.

But it turned out my sleep that night was restless and unsatisfying.
