true sadism

Deep thought?   Dumb thought.   Thought… A thing that happened in my head. Real sadists™ don’t need fetishy torture tools, expensive equipment, or elaborate sexy plans. Real sadists need only creativity and a genuine appreciation for others’ pain. … and glitter. I fucking hate glitter. Image: “accidental spill” by y-a-n, (2005).

strategically targeting BDSM newbies

Surrounding the release of the movie that shall not be named, there was discussion about whether newbies to kink and BDSM (particularly Fifty Shades readers with expectations built on fiction) were at risk of being taken advantage of.

bits & pieces (and huge swinging labia)

As I mentioned and agonized over (and eventually said “fuck it” and finished), I wrote my two sentence description of Dumb Domme. That, along with a few other responses, are up over at Cliterati. Go read it. It’s fun. I was interviewed by the lovely and talented Girl on the Net (Thanks GoTN!). The most important thing in that interview is in the intro where GoTN says she has a blogger-writer-crush on me. Seriously. She said that. :) Humor is a rubber sword – it allows you to make a point without drawing blood. Mary Hirsch (humorist, A Penis is … [read more]
