Criss-Cross

February 24, 2016

It’s a little throwback to November 2015’s BizBaz event at Threshold Dungeon.  I’d tried out some play piercing in the past couple of BizBaz’s, but this was the most needles I’d ever experienced at one time. It was much more of a personal challenge, and kind of a ritual than something that gives me an erotic charge.  This is my twenty-fourth entry in February Photo Fest 2016! Click the image…

Fifty Shades of Opinions

February 13, 2015

Full disclosure: I didn’t read the Fifty Shades of Grey books. Okay, I only managed to get to page six, but I didn’t try all that hard. Sometimes I have a very low attention span.

As a sexologist and sex educator, I…

Consent (Teens and BDSM)

Yes Means Yes
April 13, 2012

    Several events both recently and not so recently have led me to this topic. I’ll start with the not so recent and you’ll forgive me, but I won’t go into too much detail, for the simple facts that: a) this was at least a decade ago for me, b) it really wasn’t that big a deal, and c) there are many much worse stories out there. When I was a…

NRE

March 16, 2012

New Relationship Energy is a phrase commonly heard in polyamorous relationships. It is a concept I first heard about a few years ago on the Sex is Fun podcast (episodes 191 and 192, for those who are interested). NRE is a bubbly kind of feeling that can happen when two (or more) people experience something new together. While these feelings are often related to new sexual encounters, they could be more…
