reader questions: bears, biology, and "babygirls"

Bears, Boilers, Babygirls, Biology, and Board Games Today’s reader questions are brought to you by the letter “B.” Could you make me a chocolate teddy bear please? FFS. Now is not the time for ambiguity! Do you want me to make you a chocolate teddy bear? Or make you into a chocolate teddy bear? By chocolate, do you mean a flavor? Or a color? I can’t possibly help you if you don’t give me all the information. Since your question is wide open for interpretation, I’m going to have to use my judgment. Go sit in a double boiler and … [read more]

DIY erotic electrostimulation (e-stim)

Today’s Reader Question comes from Sparky of Amperage, AK. Ohm man, watt a shocking question! I expect my response might generate some static, but if you’ve got a short fuse, don’t get all amped up — just try to stay grounded, okay? I’ve had a little BDSM experience… Where can I find extreme electrocution and not pay for it? You’re in luck, my electrically, financially, and intellectually deficient friend!

I haven’t posted in 13 days. I don’t think I’ve ever gone so long without saying something, even if it’s only something stupid. I haven’t said much because I’ve been busy, and also, because I’m not sure what to say. And when there is something I want to say, I’m not sure I should. If I’m honest with myself, the big reason I haven’t said much of anything is because I can’t decide whether “FUBAR” or “clusterfuck” is more appropriate to describe the situation. Almost none of the FUBARs that comprise the clusterfuck were unexpected. I knew some tough shit … [read more]
