Over the past few months, I've selected vintage photo sets showing various women posed back and front. I thought it would make for interest contrasts and even surprises when you turn them around and see their faces and breasts. I've collected five sets in all: the first four look amateur, the final (and most contemporary) looks professional. I wonder which ones folks will find hottest.
Saw this the other night and thought it was surprisingly charming. Old Spice commercials in my day were aimed at men, and traded on the predictably sexist "captain of the ship" metaphor. But I've always had an affection for the musky/spicy scent because my beloved father used the aftershave every day. Mmm. Glad to see they're trying a whole new marketing approach. It seems to be getting lots of positive attention from viewers. I guess it doesn't hurt that it stars a totally gorgeous, hilariously funny man and...well...then there's that pretty horse. Oooh. Horsie.
Did Reader's Digest ever do a vagina? I remember Joe's Liver and Kidney, but how about Joe's Penis?
Anyway, no idea about the background on this photo but somehow I don't think this anatomical exhibit ever visited the U.S. I'd give my eyeteeth to read one of those exhibition guides the attendees are holding. I'm guessing (wildly) this is ca. 1930s and somewhere in Europe (France or Germany). Any of my scholarly readers know better?
It was an odious idea in the first place, but the gadget gurus at Gizmodo are bewailing the loss of their power to jiggle strangers' breasts with their iPhone.
Recently, Apple removed Wobble—an app that adds real jiggle to photographic boobies—from the App Store. Other removals followed. Now, a developer who talked to Apple has the scoop on the future of iPhone titillation, and it is bleak.
Seriously folks, this is like a bad acid flashback to Beavis and Butthead. Is this what it's come to, that people spend time worrying that they won't be able to jiggle Sarah Palin's boobs and snigger when they should be working?
Hell if I could tell the difference on some of these. I scored 70%. Did my hormones deceive me or is it really hard to tell the difference between metal acts and gay leather scenes? And if so...why don't they just step over to the sex side, and give up all the posturing. If it looks like a sadomasochist and dresses like a sadomasochist and acts like a sadomasochist...Take the Gauntlet's Gay or Metal? Quiz Now and see the fine line between dungeon masters and metal bands.
From an article in the current Men's Health, offering advice on that delicate subject of past sexual history.
"What was your first time like?" It was her sexual coming-out party. "This is usually harmless, sometimes hilarious, and rarely threatening," says sex therapist Gloria Brame, Ph.D. "Sharing this kind of personal information is a sign of trust."
Interesting and valuable perspective on protecting our Community and its members from social harassment and the political agendas of self-appointed moral police.
Nearly a century and a half after Leopold von Sacher-Masoch published the erotic novel that led to the psychiatric definition of masochism, fetish sexuality remains mostly under the radar of vanilla society. While David Ives’s Venus in Fur, a play based on the novel, debuted off-Broadway last month to rave reviews (“90 minutes of good, kinky fun,” said The New York Times), local kinksters remain a guarded, discreet community out of necessity.
Is there still moral harassment of such sexual activity in the 21st century Midwest?
“Absolutely. There’s a monster-ization of what we do,” said Barak, co-founder of Columbus’s most prominent fetish group, Adventures in Sexuality (AIS).
Recommended reading for femsubs and masochists, and those who want to understand them better.
I'm afraid that some conservative will read this and say: "Look how the feminist movement has failed us!" That's not what happened, either. I identify as feminist, and I don't believe that to be at odds with being a submissive masochist. Indeed, I believe that the feminist movement helped my practice of BDSM: It's one of the factors that gave me the strength and self-assurance required to figure out and discuss my sexual needs.
There's something about the Tekken movie that doesn't bug me like pretty much every other videogame movie has ever done. It's a fighting game and the movie seems to be presenting itself like a fighting tournament, as it should be.
The movie is also doing justice in the wardrobe department as all the costumes are that of the game, if not better. Way better. Just look at Nina's costume there in the purple. Fighting outfit or BDSM gear? You decide!
At first glance, it really does seem incongruous that men dressed like bikers — sometimes sporting spiked collars, whips, chains and leashes — would hold a toy drive. One expects leathermen to be sneering bad boys in skin-hugging jeans and spit-shined black boots, their eyes smouldering only for each other in the wee hours at private, smoky bars.
But that kind of dark fantasy clashes with the down-to-earth reality of these men, who are collecting boxes of goodies for children living in poverty.
The Ottawa Knights, a leather and denim club, is going on 35 years in operation. While their championing of wild sexuality can be seen in the annual Mr Leather Ottawa competition and the themed nights they hold at the leather bar Cell-Block, their dedication to order, honour and social awareness is evidenced by their extensive charity work with more than half a dozen organizations, like the AIDS Committee of Ottawa and Bruce House. These consistent and long-standing community outreach efforts earned them a 2010 Capital Xtra Hero Award nomination.
An in-depth, but not entirely clarifying, report on the bizarre murder of Robert Wone from Gawker. It would appear that after doing a hard-core electro-torture scene with Wone, his partners mistakenly thought he was dead...and killed him by stabbing, in hopes of getting cops to believe an intruder did the crime (!). Even sadder, these were all intelligent people...at least before drugs addled them (or so it would seem from the report).
What kind of insanity would possess them? OH. Yeah. DRUGS. How many times do we experienced people have to remind everyone that any kind or level of drugs (including alcohol) that distort your thinking DO NOT MIX with SM play? If you don't think this could ever happen to you, think again. Maybe it started out as a consensual scene but add enough drugs to any situation and consequences can spiral out of control. A glass of wine, a joint, a popper = no problem. Date rape drugs, hallucinogenics, meth, etc. etc. and someone may end up like Wone.
Also picked up Gawker's graphic of the books found in the apartment. Nice BDSM library. After reading those books they still ended up in this tragic mess? (p.s. they got Different Loving's title wrong -- only listed the subtitle, "The World of Sexual Dominance & Submission").
I've decided to close my myspace account. So if you are a myspace friend with a FB account, please friend me on FaceBook. I am limiting my list to adults (only) who are sexually progressive (you don't have to be kinky but you do have to be open-minded about kink). I'll keep the myspace page open for a while longer with a note there that I'm going. Hope to see you on FB which I keep as lively (even livelier) than this blog, with photo albums, lots of personal updates, "pupdates" from my poodle (!), idle chatter, important chatter, and links that never make it here.
