A bottom’s cranky body

I love playing with Alexandra (not her real name). She’s inventive. She doesn’t follow the “traditional” Japanese patterns—the ones that tend not to be fatal. The second time we scened, she supported my head with ropes at the base of my skull. I ended up with a headache for ten days. I kept telling Alexandra (still not her real name) that we made this mistake together, and that each of us has to be responsible to the other. Meanwhile, I was being a shit because I kept putting off going to the doctor, thus shirking my responsibility to both of us to be proactive about possible serious injury. I looked in vain for a kink-friendly doctor online, and when I asked a friend who knows the scene pretty well, she assumed I needed a gyno, not a GP! I imagined telling a vanilla GP that I was doing acro-yoga, which is a thing, and that we decided to add some rope because my balance is bad. But I’m one of those “I cannot tell a lie” people and I’m also pretty blunt, so I would have ended up saying something like “I’m into rope bondage and the person tying me up may have done bad things to my head. Not on purpose.” The third time I played with Lexie—Ima call her that now—we did not injure me. The fourth time, during a sublime scene in which I was standing on one leg and had the other bent leg suspended, I sustained some kind of butt-muscle injury on the side of the suspended leg. I met a kinky yoga instructor who said it happened because my hips weren’t open. It takes 90-minutes of mostly yang yoga poses to open my hips. (And probably my legs…if you know what I mean.) That injury plagued me for more than five weeks, and I was really worried that I would go into our fifth scene too butt-borked to play much. Miraculously, my butt—which had been especially tender for days, to the point where I was worried about sciatica—woke up pain-free the day before Sexy Lexi (no one’s real name) and I were supposed to scene. I am happy to report that I emerged unscathed from that scene, having not ceased to breathe when she wrapped my chest very tightly. (UNF. Breath play yo.) I hate thinking that my body is easily injured because before doing rope I hadn’t done anything physical—not since I quit ballet at 10 and gym at 16. I also hate thinking that I am really very old and have to be extra cautious. Now that I have been feeling the effects of positions that don’t seem strenuous, I am even more scared to try suspension again. For some reason, however, Lexapalooza (that name actually suits her) and I have decided to try one. I hope she will like my helmet and football pads.

hud-for-dpyumyumI love the cute **DP**yumyum hairdo that Anorak sports in this post, mainly because of the lovely limited-time colour assortment.

Ama.: Forever Yours (colour-change set includes collar, and wrist and ankle cuffs [Tokon 2 compatible] at Liaison Collaborative) [My one complaint here is that the cuffs are on the undersides of the wrists, so they don’t show up in most poses.]
Ama.: Forever Mine leash holder (Tokon 2 compatible; colour-change; group gift—100L fee to join; other gifts, among them the baby pink and blue penis balloons, are available)

kinbakufemdomKinbaku Femdom is the name of a lovely rainy Japanese sim dedicated to dominating men. The house is open on one side, overlooking a grassy garden that plays home to a lazy tiger. I was surprised to see four relatively tame illustrations of fundoshi-clad bound men. I haven’t encountered these anywhere else in SL. They didn’t turn me on. I couldn’t find any suffering in them.
tattedI’ve started to tie, to top, and thus far have practiced only on one small man. We switched at an intensive. He’s good at knots and patterns. I’m better at rope handling and body manipulation. He hasn’t learned to not anticipate his rigger, so I enjoyed slapping and scolding him lightly when he offered up his wrists to be untied. Having spent many rope classes envying the cuddly het couples around me, I was happy to see women tying men, women tying women and most of the couples switching. I also realized that if I’m not locked into a couple, if I’m just taking class with a buddy, I get to flirt with the teacher. Which I did. Now there’s a small man who would look good hanging on a femdom wall.

These pics sat for eight or more days on my desktop. For the gachas you will have to try Marketplace.

Keep feeling fractionation


“Seeking EXPERIENCED rope top for rope scene involving intensification of rope sensations. More importantly—I want to feel the top welcome my submission in the forms of going into trance and supplication. Impact play—thuddy—also welcome.”

That’s the want ad I posted on the Wishes Board at MEEHU 3. MEEHU is the annual Midwest convention for erotic hypnosis enthusiasts. (There are east and west coast events for those of you who don’t live in the “heartland.”) I’d been curious about the con but not committed to going until I discovered that many of the classes involved rope and impact play as inducements to trance or as trance-enhanced experiences. (Caveat: hypnosis can cause anesthetization, so the subject may be insufficiently sensitive to pain levels.) I posted my Wish early Friday, the first day of the con, and took it down that afternoon when I realized that I was in over my head, as it were. “Deeper and deeper” the [hypno]tist says to their subject. “And drop!” (There’s no nudity or bondage under the cut but I do refer to f***ing, and to YouTube, which may be more disturbing.)

Vintage spring swing

swungaroundree I paid cash money for the rare colour-change version of Enfant Terrible’s latest gacha fetish outfit, Vintage Romance. This was possible because some weird sane person listed it on Marketplace for a reasonable price. Maybe it was their first day in SL or their two-thousand-four-hundred-and-thirty-third. The colour possibilities appealed to me because in addition to serving up my favourite combination of black and pink, the HUD also tosses out trickier tones, like pearl grey and more than one shade of beige. One could fall asleep on a woman wearing a beige-on-beige ensemble. Especially when there’s no red option to shout “passion time!”
cool contortion meda It’s tough for me to see how pony play equates to vintage or romance, but I love the detail of the horseshoe on the bottom of the boot. In fact, it makes me so happy that I giddily adjusted Portia’s lips, allowing the corners an unprecedented two-point increase in upturn.

Cover me, darling please

monkeyheadOn February 8 we enter the year of the monkey. I had some trouble finding a good prop for last year and was offended on the part of goats and sheep when I discovered that either one would do! I had no success this year looking for monkeys on Marketplace, where I expected to find a barrel vintage monogrammed trunk full of them. Luckily, Taiko McCaw of Naminoke has hooked us all up with this group gift. I was born in a year of the monkey. A little reading told me that monkey years are bad for monkeys and that monkeys are smart and witty and mischievous but they hurt people’s feelings because they don’t know when to stop. A little reading…don’t like it but I guess I’m learning.

Take a bow

eerie valkyrie in angels demons Aliza Karu just announced that she is shuttering AD Creations Doll House, aka Angels and Demons, after 8 years. I was lucky enough to blog for Aliza for a number of years. She would send out a groaning box packed with costumes that might be both fluffy and angular at the same time and were always satisfyingly gothic. Can you imagine what would happen if all the pieces of all those dresses got jumbled up in one package? Someone unimaginative and uptight like me would put all the strict black pieces in one pile, all the frothy pieces in another pile and everything colourful under the sofa. That would leave me with funny hats and arty pics. When Aliza concocted outfits based on books, she introduced me to Haruki Murakami’s IQ84 with her double-moon dress. And when it came time to do The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy she very thoughtfully provided the towel essential to space travel as well as a hat made out of the whale and an incoming flowerpot. You have until February 6 to find these creations and more at [AD]. There will be a tribute show in-world as part of Ferosh on January 24 at 10AM.
all the world The [AD] Combat helmet and wings have been waiting in my armoury, I mean my inventory, for ages. Portia so rarely gets called into battle. Here she’s pretending to be a young, couture-clad opera diva posing for a portrait to advertise her upcoming turn as Brunhilde. Plausible, no? (Please don’t try to make sense of the Egyptian ankh and the bites. Outfits quickly spin out of control when one starts playing with Aliza.)

Choose your embrace

I'm not sick bay Anorak gets chills at the thought of two massive robotic arms. I savour the prospect of two-hundred metres of natural rope. (The rope is probably more expensive, but it doesn’t servo-whine.) Last weekend a very talented woman introduced me to rope suspension. Ecstacy (a feeling of elation and innocence), followed by normalcy, followed by emotional—not physical!— drop. (The theory is that an endorphin high inevitably leads to a low.) Because of my experiences with despair the feeling of drop was familiar. It was tough to find myself in that state. Luckily it didn’t come with the despairing content, and I was able to work my way out of it. I relied on a friend, a struggle to tie my first harness on that poor friend, a dozen rounds of online gin rummy with a program that invariably favors sixes, and staying up well past my bedtime.
