    Blue

    I ran fingers across spines of books, searching for 900.09 SMI. My research was grinding to a halt; finding sources like looking for the proverbial needle in a haystack at night.  I sighed audibly.  So much so, I actually looked around to see if I’d disturbed anyone. From the corner of my eye, I caught the silhouette of a young woman on a step ladder in an adjacent aisle.  Young, fresh-faced, thrift-store chic, she was an obvious employee of the library. Tired and a bit rummy, my boundaries began to feel slippery…elusive. I’d have done anything to make my project disappear right then. And she looked promising. I wandered over…

    Erotic Journal Challenge: April 2020 “Receptive”

    When I set out this year, I brainstormed a list of “states of being” I wanted to prioritize in my life. And, because it made good sense, I used that list to create the Erotic Journal Challenge themes for 2020. January’s theme was mindful, which is actually my main word for the year. February’s theme was sensual. March’s theme was curious. And April’s theme is receptive. Receptive: (adjective) –willing to consider or accept new suggestions and ideas. –“a receptive audience” –Similar: open-minded, open to new ideas, open to suggestions, open, responsive, amenable, sympathetic, well-disposed, interested, attuned, flexible, willing, favorable, approachable, accessible, friendly, welcoming, susceptible, impressionable –Consider similar term: surrender April…

    April Poetry Challenge 2020

    April is the cruelest month… Well…for some, March has been, and April promises little respite. Many of us are in lock down, stuck at home, working from home, worrying away the hours at home. Others are first responders or essential workers out there exposing themselves to potential health hazards for the good of the rest of us. For me, it’s been about finding a new rhythm. I rarely leave the house, but I’m working, some days, harder than I do when I’m actually at work. These coming weeks promise to slow their pace a bit, as I get used to the new expectations. I’m also forcing myself to do remote…

    The Four Foundations of Mindfulness

    Practicing mindfulness is a way to become more present in every area of our lives, including our romantic and sexual relationships. According to Buddhist teachings, the Four Foundations of mindfulness are: Mindfulness of body Mindfulness of feelings Mindfulness of thought/consciousness Mindfulness of how your mind works Mindfulness of Body In relationships, mindfulness of our bodies can help us to become more aware of our base physical reactions (i.e. tension, relaxation, tingling, temperature). Any change in our physical condition in relation to an interaction or thought of our partner can yield important information which can be used to improve our relationship. Situations when our bodies may react might be during conversations…

    Photographs (revisited)

    (This story was originally published in 2012 in three parts. I’m re-publishing it here, with its audio version, as a complete text, as I update the fiction on this site.) Tanya was a pretty, yet plain woman.  The only thing that set her apart from the crowd was her hair — a fiery orange-red and naturally curly.  She kept it long only because she had no other choice.  If she cut it, she’d be sporting an afro, which she felt would look odd atop her 5’7″, 140 pound, translucently pale and abundantly freckled frame.  She wore simple, dark clothing and avoided patterns, figuring her hair was resplendent enough.  Even her…

    My “Vision” of Dominance

    This is a follow-up piece to My submissive “Vision” I’ve always be drawn to quiet dominance in men…not the sort of loud, brazen “I’m in charge here” arrogance that can be mistaken for dominance. The type you can feel in your bones and see in His eyes. My Husband need not say a word for me to know that a switch has been flipped and things are no longer up for discussion. His eyes can tell me “No” or “Stop” or “Begin” or “You’re on thin ice” or any number of things without His words ever getting called in to play. The fact that I respond to this, willingly or no,…

    The Tenant – 1941

    I’m cleaning up some old posts and revising some old stories. This is one from the very early days…I wrote it back in college, so some 20 years ago. I recently used it for my podcast Brigit’s Erotic Bedtime Stories.   They’d been living in the same house for 67 days. But she looked at the dog with more affection; and she spoke to herself more often. He was immanent, however. His circumference was widening in her space. He was filling the air with his need for the smell of her hair, a glimpse of the garter holding her one threadbare pair of stockings in place, too low, just above…

    Fairweather submissive

    I’m sorry to confess it, but honestly, I’m a fairweather submissive. I’m up for it when it’s easy, when I have the energy for it, the time for it…when it doesn’t ask too much of me. I have been such for a long time, and I’ve tried (sort of) time and again to be better. Often enough that some might say I should just give up, that it isn’t for me, that I’m not really a submissive. And yet, I am. Or at least I’m some semblance of one…on my way to becoming one. No matter how poorly I demonstrate it or live up to my own expectations (or His).…

    My Submissive “Vision”

    (Image is a stock photo…not me…but I really loved it and thought it was perfect for this post!) In a previous post, I wrote about having a vision for what kind of submissive I’d like to be. In a perfect world, with no interruptions or obligations outside of my relationship and all of the energy I could ever dream of, what would I (and He) want my submission to look like? I’d be available to Him whenever He wanted me, for whatever He needed. This isn’t completely off the mark for us now, as I rarely try to subdue to His advances. The only time I really find it difficult…

    Smut Marathon – Round 2 Feedback

    Read the submissions HERE. See the voting results HERE. (I find it interesting that NONE of the pieces that placed in the top 3 for the public vote were in my top 9. And the winner of the jury vote was my #9. “Viva Voce” was my 3rd choice, and it came in as a first runner up. The others that placed for the jury vote were not in my top 9. The overall winner for round 2 wasn’t even in my top 30. So…I may be looking for something that others are not, and not seeing things that others are. Scroll to the bottom of the post to see…
