Bruiser

STANCESJESSCA I just bought my first corset (see pic below). It’s an underbust, mostly black with decorative laces on the sides and stainless steel closures in the front. I tried a long-line overbust corset that didn’t fit my short-waisted bod. It appealed to me because of the fabric: a somewhat old-fashioned floral pattern, chysanthemums I think, in pale pink, red and white. The vendor told me this one is rarely bought. I was drawn to it because when I think about a kink wardrobe I imagine myself in loose flowing dresses in lace (think Free People) or tap pants and a teddy in pretty fabrics rather than tougher looks in tight leather or latex. Something about my submissive side puts me in touch with the soft, subtle part of me. That part of me was not, however, controlling today’s purse strings. I am pleased to reassure all my readers that the corset I bought better reflects my true self. It’s a little evil. [Waking up to spy one's new corset lying on the floor is disturbing. It looks like alien tech and it weighs far more than an hourglass.]
CORSETTKEVIN On her pudendum Portia is wearing Cyril, new from Sian Pearl for Chariot. It’s a lovely swan-shaped metal codpiece [with matching crown, sold separately] in soft silver, bronze and blue tones. It’s very resizable so SLadies like Portia can pretend it’s a merkin. I have to confess that I have long wanted to buy Portia a pair of well-stuffed men’s briefs. I think Cyril may have led me to the slope all slippery with swan shit.

Ruffle me this

uh oh Aliza Karu of Angels and Demons Creations is back with dramatic gowns designed for the latest edition of Ferosh magazine, which is fabulous. I stripped 00:00 down to the bones: lots of rear ruffles calling attention to long bared legs and a harness decked with lace-filled picture frames. You can wear just one picture frame but I figure three gets you the full-on Guilty Remnant feel. (That’s not an obscure reference if Justin Theroux makes you melt.)
fair play Turn about is fair play. I hear tell of a tiny female domme who is topping a top I dislike. All she’s needed is an evil laugh, a little rope and a smattering of seeding. It couldn’t happen to a meaner guy.

Uncinched

slapped When your inner thighs become an erogenous zone you need to show them off in the first pair of black leggings you’ve worn in public since 1992. Textile technology has improved. My new leggings are as perma-tight as they are hella-shiny. My thighs…well, they were on a date with the man who slapped me (it’s a long story), and they were open to being squeezed, pinched, spanked and more. In 1992, I wore a bell-shaped tunic with my cotton leggings. I looked like a clown. In 2014, I can wear a cleverly cut sexy tee just long enough to cover my butt. Alas, it doesn’t matter how much fabrics have slinkened and shapes have sleekened if a date isn’t meant to be. In texts we had proposed going for coffee or a drink, maybe dinner I said, maybe a dungeon he said. It was too soon for that, I responded, and threatened to wear my ugly undies. He rightly pointed out that I probably had some panties that wanted to be worn on a Saturday night. My thighs would be happy in their leggings, so I didn’t have to worry about them becoming envious of my rear-end, which I treated to something lacey in the front and netted—only netted—in the back. It was all a wasted effort, because after spending two hours relating all the ways that he isn’t available, he passed on dinner and on what could have happened next. You see, that slinky top of mine is oversized. There are big cut-outs in the upper arms that sag and drag down an already deep draped v-neck. So on most occasions I make it presentable by cinching it at the back of my neck with a long black-silk ribbon. It was Saturday night, so I could have let the top loose before leaving home, but I decided instead that I would hold off till we got to the dungeon. Had we made it—had he stuck around long enough to hear how many ways I am not available—he would have seen me let down my blouse. I’d have casually opened it up for his eyes and hands, only to distract him by revealing the long black ribbon and asking if he could find another way to use it.

Wrestle me to the mat

cat napped ptr Today I thought I’d say a word about the weird shadowy pics I like to make. I have almost no control over this light. In fact, my computer is such a piece of junk that the lighting winks on and off, from lit to black and lit again, endlessly. I have to keep trying to capture the screen shot, waiting for it to hit like lightning in a horror movie. This is often time-consuming. I find that I have more success getting the shot when I close my eyes. I suspect this is because the number of seconds between lights on and lights off is absurd and too awkward for humans to master: something like 11.3731. Time, not computer hardware, is the enemy after all. (There are musings on kink under the cut. Don’t venture there if shibari and envy frighten you.) Continue reading

Sounds in the night

shadowed2 Portia is wearing the sexy lace leggings from Cameron Vasiliov’s latest offering from B.D.R. The Hunting Souls outfit will set you up for Hallowe’en. It includes a bandeau top, wings, horns and plain and gruesome versions of a neck corset. There are also more appliers than this blogger can explain. Check out the vendor for deets. And don’t venture under the cut if you are kink-averse.

Up and down

poole I once stood like this to charm a cat. I wasn’t wearing a couture hat by Zib Scaggs for Zibska. All I had was a ponytail sprouting from the top of my head. It moved with me as I bent over to attract a cat famous for evading housesitters. Instead of going into the room and trying to drag her out from under a dresser, I maintained a respectful distance, standing just beyond the threshold in the hallway and, bent and bouncing my ponytail, talked to her in baby talk: “yoo ook sho shilly hiding undah thair, yesh, yoo doo, yoo doo.” No response, not even an involuntary one. But after a few days of these occasional visits and casual greetings when I left and returned home, she came out of her lair and turned into a very good companion, sitting at the end of the couch with me any time I watched TV and in the in-bin when I worked at the desk.

Nobody’s demon bride

strait and narrow Have you ever had one of those dreams in which you are certain you are awake but cannot move? I had this type of dream, always very similar, a dozen times over a period of three or four years when I was living in the sticks. I would be lying flat on my back, which is not how I sleep, completely paralyzed. I would feel the bedclothes being pulled slowly down to the foot of the bed, leaving me exposed and expectant but not scared. (What’s coming can’t be wholesome if it’s on the other side of the cut.)

Trance

struggle I was talking to my friend Sian—who blogs at Parthenoid—about falling into an intensely submissive state while I was fantasizing alone and finding it very hard to pull myself out of it. She suggested this was self-hypnosis, a trance state. Certainly I had the feeling of going under. The episode started with an acute and alarming feeling of intimidation attached to a dom I met who is twice my size. I never feel small and vulnerable until I am confronted with someone large and seemingly dangerous. (In fact, I spit when people call me petite.) Although this man didn’t make me feel small when we met, the idea of encountering him again overwhelmed me with fear and desire all at once. I realized as this was happening that engaging the fear rather than pushing it away could be a cathartic element in D/s play. So I let the emotion take me. Before I knew it, the fear had passed (without incident) and I was lying across the man’s lap as he sat on the floor. He was petting me as though I were a cat. (Why a cat? Dogs get jowl scratches. That is not my idea of sensual stroking.) Instead of feeling aroused, I felt content and proud. (There’s sexy stuff under the cut. You know what to do if you’re in a public place.) Continue reading

Dual Dido

lounging Jewelry Fair, which opens on September 13, is the place to go if you find yourself lusting for Zib Scaggs’ latest big bad Zibska baubles. Today I decided to break the new Dido set of hat and collar to create two looks. One for haute couture, seen here. One for humiliation, located under the cut. All of Ms. Scaggs’ pieces are colour change, but I gravitate to her charcoal-black because it’s dramatic and I’m moody. I am also a fan of Marni, The Skinnery’s Arcade gacha item, which I’ve seasoned with a generous sprinkling of hot freckles from Milk. If you don’t like your virtual life spicy, don’t venture under the cut. Continue reading
