Okay, so it’s an ad (that I get no profit from), but it’s a really cool ad that I totally could have benefitted from as a new mom, so I’m sharing it. Deal.

Kinktionary: Play Partner

Jacques Biederer, 1887-1942

A play partner is just what it sounds like: a person you play with in a BDSM setting. Generally speaking, if someone is your ‘play partner,’ you enjoy playing together, and you’ve played with them on more than one occasion.

In many cases, relationships between play partners are ‘no strings attached’. That is, there’s no defined expectations beyond occasional play sessions with each other. Often play partners are not exclusive, and do not adhere to rules outside of play time the way a committed dominant and submissive would.

Heads up! Or something.

Look! My new bike!

Just a short update…

– I may or may not get Kinktionary and No Stupid (Kink) Questions posts up this week. M’s on vacation starting whenever he gets to stop working tonight, and doesn’t go back until next week, which means if I have any free time at all, it has to be spent on obligations to people who pay me. I know how that sounds. Ahh, the life of a pleasure slave. #pleasureslaveproblems

– I have been working on a couple posts related to life in general as me, but at least one may never be published because a) it may no longer be relevant and b) I’m trying to avoid drama, these days. Now you really want to read it, huh? The others are just taking me forever because I’ve been weird about sharing lately. I keep getting all freaked out about hurting people’s feelings. What even has happened to me?! I blame the internet.

– I have a new bike! YAAAAASSSSSS!!!!! It already needs work done. Booo!!! But we’re pretty sure it’s just that the cables need adjusting, so M’s gonna do it himself. We want to get back to doing long rides, and if we’re going to do that, we need to know how to make minor adjustments to our bikes in case crazy shit happens like what’s going on with my bike right now (which is that we got less than a mile out and my pedals locked up) when we’re ten miles (or more) away from the car.

– I just finished a short story about a woman whose husband abandons her during the zombie apocalypse. I’m looking for feedback. If you’re interested in reading, let me know!

That’s all for today. ~ducks~ Have a great weekend! And I suppose the rest of the week, too. <3

No Stupid (Kink) Questions: Episode 54 – Not A Happy Secret

August 7th, 2015 2 comments

NoStupidKinkQuestionsGandhi said that if you want to change the world, you have to be the change you want to see. To that end, Insatiable Desire brings you No Stupid (Kink) Questions, a series of questions asked by novice kinksters around the web. If you have a question for us, leave it in comments, or send it to rayne (at) insatiabledesire (dot) com with “NS(K)Q” in the subject.

Question 54:

I just found out I’m a secret. I’m not really sure how, because I’ve had dinner with the wife, but she for sure doesn’t know. I’m not feeling it. At all. I have no idea how to handle this. Should I confront him? Should I tell her? At the same time? Separately? What do you think?

Ouch.

Okay, calm down, and don’t do anything stupid. That’s what I’d be telling myself in your situation.

Falling under the heading ‘Anything Stupid’ would be confronting him and telling her at the same time. You literally just found out. You have no idea what the situation is. Read more…
