Kink in exile

Notes from a kinky nomad

Life in bullet points

  • I’m working from Santa Cruz today.  I was too behind to try competing with the distractions of San Francisco, so I drove out last night with my boy and a girl who needed a ride.  Now I’m working from an old victorian watching the rain beat against the single pane glass. 
  • Intention — I posted about it recently and it came up again last night.  I was getting acupressure from a life-long martial artist.  He told me, as he worked to loosen my wrist, that the pressure points he uses to heal are the same he can use to hurt.  “It’s all about intention” he said.  It reminded me of the vulnerability I felt when a partner was massaging my neck; knowing that he is good at what his does, but knowing too that he could kill me if he wanted to. 
  • And now it’s time to get back to work.  There is another blog post on my to-do list, but first there is an animation to finish.  Six hours of work and 30 seconds of movie later and I’m still only almost done. 
Continued despite the yet unfinished nature of my animation, review, and article…
  • I love the sound of the words “Thank you, Ma’am.”  I can say that I like it as a momentary pause to reconnect during a scene, or that I like it as a way to establish the status of consent without breaking out of roles, or even as a way to establish those roles.  However, I think it appeals to me on a much deeper back-brain level.
  • I was thinking recently about the journalistic ethics in sex toy reviews.  I don’t, generally post bad reviews despite the fact that all the companies I have reviewed for specify that they want honest reviews — good or bad.  I get a say in which toys I review, so for the most part I pick things I think I will enjoy, and I do.  However, I was looking at submission guidelines for a women’s sexuality website that only wants positive reviews, and I have to say, I don’t think I can make that kind of promise.
And one more thought…
  • We are now fully prepared for the Zombie apocalypse — big ass power generator, converter, and Geneva approved zombie destroyer rifles.  Uh, cause solar wasn’t hardcore enough.
