Tim Vandecasteele has create a web application for the iPhone designed to teach men how to digitally pleasure a woman's nethers—if only female reproductive organs were as sensitive as a perfectly smooth sheet of hardened glass. I'll never be in an uncomfortable, unfulfilling relationship with a patio door again!
It's called "RubMyClit." I feel dirty just typing that, but I have a duty to you, the reader.
One Christmas a long time ago Santa Claus had
problems. Four of his elves were sick so
Santa got behind schedule. Then Mrs Claus
told Santa that her Mum was coming to visit;
this stressed Santa even more. He went to see
his reindeer and found that three of them
were about to give birth. More stress. Then
when he began to load the sleigh he dropped
the toy bag and scattered the toys.
Santa went into the house for a shot of whisky
but the elves had drunk him dry.
Just then the doorbell rang and Santa cussed
on his way to the door. There was a little
angel with a big Christmas tree. "Merry Christmas
Santa”, said the angel, “Isn't it a lovely
day? I have a beautiful tree for you. Where
would you like me to stick it?”
Thus began the tradition of the angel on
top of the Christmas tree.
I blogged about this sensational high society murder when they first found Mr. Stern in SM gear and arrested his Mistress. Now the case is finally in court and the emerging details are ghoulishly fascinating. If you like SM, and you like true crime (and I like both), this is a must read.
Crime of passion? Or fit of uncontrollable rage? Is there a difference?
MORE than two years after Edouard Stern, the wealthy banker, was found shot dead at his home in Geneva wearing a latex suit during an apparent sadomasochistic sex session, the tranquil world of Swiss finance was rocked by fresh scandal last week as lawyers in his murder trial swapped claims of prostitution and intimidation.
The first public hearing on the case, in which Stern’s blonde mistress Cécile Brossard, a 38-year-old Frenchwoman, has confessed to killing him, was supposed to decide what evidence was admissible, including recordings of telephone calls. It turned into an angry courtroom clash, with her lawyers revealing new details from the investigation.
Lawyers for the Stern family argue that the murder was premeditated, while Brossard claims it was a “crime passion-nel” -- that she killed him in a fit of passion.
In February 2005, colleagues worried at having heard nothing from the 50-year-old Stern found his body, dressed in a latex suit and wearing a harness, a hood over his head, at his penthouse apartment in a chic Geneva neighbourhood. Stern, ranked the 38th most wealthy Frenchman and nicknamed “the little prince of finance”, had been shot four times.
He had promised to marry Brossard, his mistress of four years, before giving her a gift of $1m £504,000 . On February 14, 2005, he blocked the payment and broke off relations with her.
At the hearing in Geneva last week Brossard appeared in public for the first time since her arrest. Dressed all in white, including her boots, she sat silently and wiped away tears with a handkerchief while lawyers for the Stern family delved into her past as a call girl.
Marc Bonnant, one of the lawyers, described Brossard as “cunning and money-seeking” and as “a tart having fuelled the fantasies of a 50-year-old man” who had become dependent on her. She went by the name of Sophie when seeing clients at the plush Hotel Scribe in Paris but was known as Alice “when she played the dominatrix in Geneva”. Before meeting Stern, she would charge €6,000 £4,350 for a weekend with a client, the lawyer said.
She asked for the $1m when Stern asked for her hand in marriage.... Stern decided to get the money back, a decision that was to prove fatal, he added: “She went into a terrible rage. She left, taking her combat gear-- tights, a dog-collar, a latex suit and other accessories -- with her.”
According to Bonnant, Brossard told the prosecutor: “I killed him because during a sex game he told me, ‘A million dollars-- that’s expensive for a whore’.”
Brossard allegedly shot Stern first in the head, then twice in the chest and one last time in the forehead. Brossard entrusted her response to Pascal Maurer, her lawyer, who pledged to reveal “the true face” of the banker who had morally “harassed a fragile woman to the limit”. Her liaison with Stern had led her “to anorexia, to her own moral and physical degradation”. She had been “ready to make any sacrifice to satisfy the fantasies of her lover”.
Stern was “a skilled hunter who had spotted his quarry” and his aim was to humiliate his mistress. “He is a manipulator who uses his kindness and his false romanticism. But when she wanted to leave him, he threatened her and stuck a knife in the wall two fingers away from her ears,” Maurer said.
Recorded phone conversations revealed their tormented relationship. Stern told her: “How I love you! My heart is exploding. I didn’t know one could love so much.” He added: “I’m sad that I can’t teleport myself and hold you in my arms.”
In a less romantic message, Stern said: “I don’t trust you . . . I vomit on you. And I’m going to harm you.” He did not take her to parties. “You don’t really think I’m going to spend my life with . . . you,” he said. In another recording he said: “You’d have been one of the bitches in a concentration camp.”
Father hunger is particularly relevant for gay men. After all, the first important relationship that serves as a template for future love and intimacy with men is between a boy and his father. Many gay men experience a particularly painful distance from their fathers -- resulting in men who have some of their most basic father needs unmet. Gay men are also more likely not to have masculine role models or to participate in the cultural processes that help them mature into adult masculinity. It's easy, without the intervention of the mature masculine, for a young gay man to become a "lost boy." He finds it nearly impossible to fulfill his promise in the world, and his true gifts often lie dormant. It is not until the internal immature masculine unites with the mature masculine that a man's potential can be realized.
Father hunger is the yearning for mature masculine energy, the intimacy of the father-son bond and the need to be initiated and blessed by the ritual elder. With some stretch of the imagination, one can explore how father hunger seems to appear in some of the fantasies, imagery, role-play and sexuality of gay men.
