BDSMonday - Fetishes Video



It's BDSMonday!

Today I have a video for you. It's an episode of the Midwest Teen Sex Show, which is a hilarious and informative series to teach young people about all kinds of sex and sexuality. I highly recommend it. (I didn't want to put "Teen Sex Show" in the title lest I give the wrong impression...)

It's a very silly video, and definitely not a how-to guide to playing, but I hope you enjoy it!

Sit back, relax, and may I present the Midwest Teen Sex Show - Fetishes!

Blurb:
Together again for the first time – four tales of paranormal love by erotic romance writer Aaron Michaels just in time for Halloween.
The ghost in Haunted returns every year to spend Halloween night in the bed of the man he loves, only this year his lover looks older—frailer—and the ghost must face the possibility that their time together might be drawing to an end. The shapeshifter who plays with the minds of men, giving them instensely erotic dreams, finds himself confronted in Dream Lover with a situation none of his kind has ever experienced: he’s fallen in love with the man he visits, only the shapeshifter’s repeated presence in the man’s mind threatens his sanity. In Billy and the Ghosts, a young man’s midnight visit to the grave of a murdered madame transports him to a Comstock bordello where he meets a sexy, if ghostly, male prostitute. And for the centuries old vampire of Bound by Blood, a simple purchase of blood from a living, willing, and handsome man leads to the kind of bond the vampire has avoided his entire life—a bond of love and dependence.
Previously published by Torquere as individual sips, these four stories are now available in a single collection. So grab your favorite shapeshifter, ghost, vampire or ghoul and treat yourselves to this sexy collection of supernatural love.

My Zombie Boyfriend - Halloween Excerpt #1


Here's My Zombie Boyfriend's third excerpt! It's October and it's a book about zombies, so of course it's Halloween themed, and there will be more throughout the month.

Halloween is Edward's favourite holiday, and he fully realizes how cliched that is.

For those of you who just tuned in: Edward is your typical medical student/necromancer. Kit is the body he found and reanimated as a zombie. (Mariel is just mentioned in this segment, but she's Edward's mentor).


Please note: this is not the finalized, fully edited version of the story. Some changes will occur between now and printing.

You can read more about My Zombie Boyfriend and find other excerpts here.

Trick or Treat


Halloween.  Ghosts, Ghouls, Goblins.  Mini chocolate bars, Sweet Tarts, Smarties.  It's a confused season.  Get scared, eat more candy.  Works for me.

Do you still have children in your neighborhood who go out to Trick or Treat?  I live in the city of Chicago and things have changed.  Folks are not comfortable going door to door anymore, and other parents I talk to say the same.  In more rural areas of Illinois, folks do; but they know their neighbors.

I think one of the most pleasing parts about the custom is the idea that we get to know those with whom we live.  I don't mean within our houses, but within our neighborhoods.  We spend a lot of time at home, and home is where the heart is.  Do you know your neighbors?  If not, you're not alone - it seems to be a growing social trend that "neighbor" doesn't mean what it did to generations past.

So I got to thinking:  what's your favorite "old fashioned" custom that you wish was still in practice?

BDSMonday - Public Play




It's BDSMonday!

Today's topic is playing in public. First, let me be clear--for me, there are only two 'rules' for BDSM. Consent, obviously, is the first one. But the second is, don't freak out the vanilla people. Just like you (probably) don't want to know about strangers' sex lives, they (probably) don't want to know about yours!

That being said, there are a surprising number of ways to play in public or outside your home.

Some easy ones include:

- wearing a buttplug, though I wouldn't recommend doing this for more than a few hours at a time. Not only will your butt probably get sore, it's probably not good to have something in there for too long!

- if you are a penis-having person and you're into CBT or chastity play, there are many, MANY discreet objects you can wear out and about. Again, I wouldn't leave those on for an extended period, at least without learning your body's limits first

- having bondage underneath your clothes

- if I've played recently, I love feeling the bruises and other marks throughout the day, either by touching them on purpose or just finding them stimulated as I go about my business

Then there are sneakier ways that you can do right under unsuspecting noses and they probably won't notice.  I don't consider myself an exhibitionist, but I do enjoy carrying my BDSM relationship across as many aspects of my life as I can, and there is a special thrill at performing a kinky task that no one would ever guess was happening.

I really like it when my Sir orders for me at restaurants, especially if we haven't discussed it ahead of time. I usually get her drinks when we're at family members' houses, or refill her drink if we're at a restaurant and there's a pitcher or teapot at our table.

Some of them are more situational--we painted the exterior of our house this summer. One of the spots could only be reached by standing on the roof. I wanted to be tied off at least a little, so we got to do outdoor, fully public bondage! :D

Or, while we were raking, I was bent over the bag of leaves to squish the air out of it (does anyone else do this?) with my ass in the air, and she gave me a little swat with the rake. I don't think anyone walking past would have looked twice, but we had a 'tee hee' moment.

I would love to hear your ideas, experiences and fantasies when it comes to playing in public!
