It’s the 4th of July, which equates to Independence Day here in the USA. The 1st of July was Canada Day. That’s a similar celebration without an armed revolution to motivate the festivities.
Of course, my thinking today is less about the holiday itself, and more about the tradition of telling folks to have a “safe and sane” 4th of July. Yes, the BDSM community motto has been taken over by the…
It’s a Throwback Thursday twofer today! Here’s a post, originally written on 6/8/2012 for SpiritualBDSM.com …
It’s said that all power corrupts, and that absolute power corrupts absolutely. So, with that in mind, how does a dominant avoid the corruption and personal decay that can accompany the wielding of power?
Well, as a beginning, it’s an absolute necessity to know thine enemy. So,…
For Throwback Thursday, a post about IML2012 …
It’s no secret that Serafina and I recently invested in a beautiful piece of BDSM furniture, the Dore Alley bed from DungeonBeds. The bed’s been a dream of mine for quite a while, so when I discovered DungeonBeds.com offering a significant discount for the bed that would be displayed at IML2012 in Chicago, we found a way to make the purchase…
- How would you say real life BDSM/kink varies from fantasy BDSM/kink? If you haven’t experienced real life BDSM/kink how do you think it might differ?
One theme I keep coming back to, is that in a wide variety of ways, BDSM is like most everything else in life.
I believe that the kink community is a microcosm of society.
Our hopes and dreams are not that different from anyone else’s. We just tend…
Life has changed a lot since the days of Daniel Boone, who I’m told was some sort of distant relative of mine.
All you need for happiness is a good gun, a good horse, and a good wife.
~ Daniel Boone
But, Boone’s quote still is pretty relevant, at least the parts about a happiness, a good gun, and a good wife.
This is my rifle; this is my gun.
This one’s for fighting, this one’s for fun.
How would you say real life BDSM/kink varies from fantasy BDSM/kink? If you haven’t experienced real life BDSM/kink how do you think it might differ?
I would like to refer you to this entrywhere I explain that we are a 24/7 relationship and for me life as M/s dynamic is not a fantasy, but a reality. As a reality it changes how you live and act. Little mistakes can lead to less intimacy, acting…
Did you know that 2014 FIFA World Cup™ Soccer [ 2. Football to the rest of the world - but not us here in the USA … ] matches are happening as we speak?
You’d probably have to be living under a rock not to know. I mean, I seem to have picked up on the grand event, even though I’m not watching television these days. And, not just because of Molly Moore’s upcoming SinfulSunday challenge…
- Explain as best you can what the appeal of kink/BDSM is to you? Why are you drawn to what you’re drawn to?
Why is always the most difficult question for me.
Please ask me when, what, or where. Those are questions I can likely answer.
But ask me – “Why?” – that’s a different story.
And, to be honest, that’s almost always been true. It was even true for the childhood games I once played.
I shared some of my erotic pics with a buddy of mine a while back.
“You don’t leave much to the imagination, do you?”
How do I answer that? I mean as a photographer and artist?
Yes, some of my art is very intimate. My photographic efforts are fairly graphic in terms of the sexuality they display.
Why shouldn’t it be that way?
Pussies are beautiful things, they should be celebrated. I’m celebrating!
The primary image below is actually intended as a bit of an homage to Georgia O’Keeffe. She made art of flowers that looked like pussies.
I’m inspired, upon occasion, to make art of pussies that look like flowers. Well, at least they look that way to me. You can judge for yourself.
I’m not trying to compare myself to the Mother of American Modernism. I’m just saying she’s an inspiration. OK?

Today’s images, in the Art of Slavery series, depicts some fun Serafina and I shared with a pair of stainless steel plugs from NJoy.
Like the conversation with my buddy, the scene is from a “while back”. Aaahhh, what beautiful memories the images bring to mind.
NJoying Yourself Slave?NJoying Yourself Slave? I shared some of my erotic pics with a buddy of mine a while back. His response?
- Explain as best you can what the appeal of kink and BDSM is to you? Why are you drawn to what you’re drawn to?
The appeal of kink and BDSM?
The biggest part I enjoy is the depth of BDSM and the M/s relationship. I enjoy the roles we have.
Mine to serve, honor and take direction from Master Michael. His to protect, control, direct and take the lead. And it is a force I am drawn to- like a moth…
