Wearing out an idea

Every once in a while an author writes the definitive story on a certain topic. Afterwards, there's really not much more to say about that particular plot line. The idea has effectively been mined out.

I've tried to do this with my story, The Token.
Really, how much more can you say about "mind control" as an erotic subject? It's fun while it lasts, which isn't very long, and in fact it isn't really all that much fun. And, there's an inevitable backlash.

In this author's very humble opinion, any reader who finds "mind control" to be an erotic turnon is a complete idiot anyhow.
