NSFW: Shibari Workshop

Earlier this week, my housemate and I tuned into Anatomie Studio‘s online Shibari class. The session focused on floor self-tying with the aim to learn key knots and rope positioning. So, we fetched our rope, poured two glasses of Bailey’s and plugged the Mac into the TV… We were ready to up-skill in Lockdown 2.0….

Hope Above All Else

Something strange happened recently: a random number messaged me on WhatsApp. Usually, when I exchange numbers with someone I’ve been speaking with (on- or offline) I save their number in my phone or they send a message not long after so I can save theirs. There were no hangers-on in the dating apps I was…

Impressions and Lessons

Recently, I’ve noticed that the exciting direction my career has taken might have its drawbacks. When dating, conversations around work and career inevitably crop up and when I tell people I’m a writer, they usually want to know of what. And so I tell them. I tell them I write about teaching and learning, business…

A Sexy Playlist

About three years ago I wrote a post that contained my phone’s ‘Power Playlist‘ – the playlist I make my way through to feel confident and empowered. More recently, I’ve curated a sexy playlist that always gets me in the mood. Here it is for your aural pleasure… Rain Man (Dwin Remix) – Iamkeynotes. ‘I’m…

A Speed-Dating Night with Skirt Club

Over lockdown, I joined Skirt Club; a private members’ club for bisexual and bicurious women. Naturally, COVID isn’t very conducive to groups of women flirting in bars and luxury homes – especially now we’re back to the rule of 6 – and so we’ve had to enjoy one another’s company over Zoom. Fortunately, a few…

Why Are We Faking It?

The pay gap’s sister, the orgasm gap, has recently had me thinking. Sexually confident and liberated women all over the world are faking orgasms. Some may be faking it because they don’t know if they’ve climaxed, others fake it so sex ends sooner and others do it because they want to placate the person they’re…

Those Chaotic Twenties…

Those chaotic twenties, characterised by comparison and rumination; when career successes brush up against career panics. And Saturday night’s laughter shape-shifts into Sunday’s regret; as frivolous exploration transforms into ‘unbecoming behaviour’. Through which independence beckons and financial demands loom, yet childhood lurks behind our shoulders. But those chaotic twenties, as love, desire and passion are…

NSFW: Sub Space House

When ‘Ropes’ and ‘Wing Girl’ created Sub Space House in December 2019, they didn’t expect a lockdown to put a stop to their frivolous fun. Despite this, the pair are keen to resume events once it’s safe to do so and they have big, big plans for taking Sub Space global. To find out more…

Bruises

It wasn’t long before the blood rose to the surface. A red slash on my hip from the crack of the whip was the first to appear. Next came the speckled purple and blue on my boob, slapped by you. How would my cheek react? Hands around my throat making me choke as you thrust…

NFSW: Dominating Life, Submitting in the Sheets…

As regular readers will know, 2020 has so far been an experience.  Not least because I split with my ex just before a global lockdown, or because I’ve got a new job as an erotic scriptwriter, but also because I’ve been delving deeper into the world of kink. I’ve always loved talking to people and finding out what…
