    The Spoon (a tale of forgone punishment)

    So I hate punishment. I’ve written about it before…the fact that I hate it, juxtaposed against the fact that I feel it can be necessary, anyway, in a D/s dynamic…and how my theoretical understanding of it never seems to match up to reality when I’m faced with it out of the blue. Here are a few earlier posts about it, because I don’t really feel a need to rehash things, since my feelings and opinions regarding punishment haven’t changed any: Discipline, Punishment, and Correction in a D/s Relationship 24/7 D/s (Weaknesses & First Punishment) Punishment’s Emerging Role in our Relationship So, why write about it again? Because I freaked out about…

    The Mind/Body Connection

    I’m using Arthur Aron’s “36 Questions” for awhile. Aron is a social psychology researcher at Stony Brook University. His 36 Questions have been published in various places all over the internet and are usually referred to as the “36 Questions to Fall in Love.” However, the questions are useful for improving any sort of relationship, because they push us past small talk. The 6th question in Arthur Aron’s list of 36 is this: If you were able to live to the age of 90 and retain either the mind or body of a 30-year old for the last 60 years of your life, which would you choose, and why? Ultimately,…

    Explore your early memories of sex & sexuality

    This week’s #EroticJournalChallenge prompt is: Explore your early memories of sexual experience & their impact on the sexual being you have become. When did you discover your body? What was your first experience with masturbation? First arousal? When did you learn about menstruation? Did that information prepare you for the actual experience? What was your first sexual experience like, and what emotions are attached to it? When was your first orgasm/ejaculation? What impact, if any, do you believe these first experiences have had on your adult sexual preferences and feelings? Go back as early as you feel comfortable, or consider a more recent sexual awakening. NOTE: Please take a moment…

  • Blogging & Writing

    Have you checked out my projects?

    Most of what I do on this site is ultimately for my own pleasure. It’s a big bonus if I catch a few readers, and an even bigger bonus if they comment or play along. But, I do keep track of what features get the most attention, and it can affect what I keep and what I don’t. It can also sway what I choose to write about and the topics I lean toward. Currently, if you’re not already playing, my meme projects are noted at the top of the page: The Erotic Journal Challenge (my longest running), Tell Me Something True (new this year, and not getting a ton…

    The Mute

    Gooseflesh blossomed, rising to meet the soft tickle of the feather he snaked down her back. Dipping the quill into ink, he wrote words he could not speak, dark lines of script tattooed across her flesh. She squirmed beneath the sharp point, making it difficult for him to get the words out. “I wish you’d put it where I could see it,” she said softly. But he kept scratching his pen down her spine, spilling secrets he could not say…silent confessions she could feel deep in her bones. Somewhere inside, she thought she could hear him whisper, I love you.

    On singing out loud, nekkid pitchers, and boobs

    I’ve not done a great job keeping up with things this week, but it’s Friday now, and time to breathe a bit more deeply. (We here in the states also have a 3 day weekend ahead in commemoration of Memorial Day.) It’s bittersweet, though. Normally, my family would be going to a 4 day long music festival, as we do every year. But, this is the 2nd year it’s been shut down due to Covid. While I look forward to the relaxation, I’m also sad that I won’t be dancing and enjoying myself (fuck you, Covid!). Anyhow, since I haven’t had time for memes this week, let’s give a little…

    Life outside my comfort zone

    One of my major goals this year is being more vulnerable. Not in the sense of being weak, but in the sense of being open. Letting go, following His direction better with full trust, and trying new things. And I feel like I’m doing a decent job at this. Not only have I had to be much more vulnerable at work, given our move toward social/emotional support, I’ve been going back to school myself, to prepare for a rather big shift in my career. Last week, I also decided to apply for a new position that would make it difficult to turn back. It’s once of those “two roads diverged…

  • Flash Fiction Friday

    Flash Fiction Friday (revived!)

    A long time ago, there used to be a Flash Fiction Friday meme. The original site is no longer available, but it was a fun and quick way to challenge myself in the art of fiction writing. Nothing serious…nothing terribly time-consuming. Just short, sexy stories based on images, keyword prompts, and extra bonus challenges. I’ve missed FFF. And so…I’m bringing it back! (I know, I know…like I need one more thing to keep track of…but summer is coming, and I’ll have a little more time to devote to the blog, so this seems like as good a time as any to give it a go). The first challenge is this:…

    Explore your inhibitions

    This week’s #EroticJournalChallenge prompt is: Explore your inhibitions… What were the first taboos or rules regarding sex/sexuality that you learned? What negative messages attached to sex have you encountered and absorbed? Have you ever felt guilt or shame, nervousness or apprehension about sex or desire? What experiences have you had that have either created or released your inhibitions? If you feel sexually inhibited in some way…where do you think those inhibitions come from? How can you let them go? Is there anything positive about having sexual inhibitions? NOTE: Please take a moment to read the rules. The Erotic Journal Challenge encourages writers to really dig deep and share some pretty…

    When did you last sing?

    I’m using Arthur Aron’s “36 Questions” for awhile. Aron is a social psychology researcher at Stony Brook University. His 36 Questions have been published in various places all over the internet and are usually referred to as the “36 Questions to Fall in Love.” However, the questions are useful for improving any sort of relationship, because they push us past small talk. The 5th question in Arthur Aron’s list of 36 is this: “When did you last sing…to yourself? To someone else? With others?”  As always, you can keep your responses light and simple, short and sweet, or dig in deep. You can head down a sexy road, or keep it safe…
