Spring Cutie

Spring is my favorite time of year. Everything is so…fertile.

This little honey is for me–she is SO my type. I can’t believe someone actually put a stamp on her and mailed her!

Mmmmmmm. Happy Spring. Enjoy!

The Blind Leading The Deaf

So this was in the headlines today…

Blind auto mechanic hires deaf assistant - Yahoo! News

You’re wondering how I’m going to relate this to sex? Actually, it wasn’t difficult. This strikes me as a metaphor.

Communication GapImagine the blind mechanic is a woman. Her deaf assistant is her male partner. Both are completely capable of being sexual ‘masters of their domain.’ It’s when you put them together that things can get lost in translation.

The mechanic and the assistant in the news story communicate through an interpreter. While, admittedly, this would make the intricacies of sexual relationships much easier to navigate, most couples don’t have that luxury. How often do we really receive and comprehend the messages we’re getting from our partner?

I’ve been guilty of complacency when it comes to communicating my needs/desires/moods. I’ve also been guilty of failing to pay attention to the signals my partner is sending me. Sometimes, I was just too lazy to listen. It’s much easier to just go through the motions sometimes. To do the same things over and over because, well, it always worked before. Admit it. You’ve done it too.

What I love about this story is that these two people are fully aware of the challenges in their relationship, and are making a very deliberate effort to work around their limitations. To stretch their own boundaries, even. They’ve figured out how to communicate with one another, and their communication requires complete participation. They must devote their whole attention to their effort. It’s all or nothing.

What if we all tried that approach, just once? Just for an evening? An hour? A moment? To devote our entire attention to really listening to our partner. To be fully present, both giving and receiving, communicating and comprehending. Absorbing everything…not just verbal cues…everything.

How much better would our sexual experience be?

I Can’t Wait To See THAT Boilerplate…

What if a Dominant could be held criminally liable for being…well…a Dom? What if he/she is a sadistic, egomaniacal asshole? Does it make a difference? When consentual sexual behavior involves physical and psychological abuse, torture, and even agreed-upon non-consentual sex (rape fantasies, anyone?), the legal boundaries can get pretty murky. Tristan Taormino comments on an unusual federal case for the Village Voice:

Whip Appealed

A BDSM court case puts master/slave relationships on trial

by Tristan Taormino March 19th, 2007 11:18 AM

…”Much of Jodi’s testimony was about being subjected to pain, punishment, and humiliation. Most people don’t want to be controlled, used, hurt, tortured, or degraded, so it’s hard for them to comprehend that some people want to experience sensations and emotions that are generally considered negative or painful…”

“…Because these are federal charges, Marcus faces life in prison, a fact that has sent a chill down the spines of some BDSM community members.” Read the rest.

Will a Sub need to draw up legal documents outlining the terms of his/her sexual consent? Should a Dom require a signed release prior to using any restraints or torture devices? This is a very slippery slope. I obviously don’t know the details of the relationship between Marcus and Jodi, but it does make me wonder where we go from here.

Sex or Fashion? Ummm, that’s a toughie.

Are women seriously more interested in fashion than sex? Guys, you might need to reconsider that birthday gift…

Study suggests women value clothes over sex
According to a pre-Valentine poll taken by consumer products company Unilever, the average woman would prefer to abstain from sex for up to 15 months in exchange for a closet full of new clothes.”

Source: Janice McDuffee for DailyIllini.com

I’m not really all that concerned with clothes. All I can say is…can I show you my new Gucci bag? It’s to die for!!
