And this, and that, and this.

February 9th, 2011 Comments off

The monthly round up of shit I did on other people’s websites will be along shortly. I’m rather behind in my writing because I’m a slacker. No, that’s not true. I’m behind because I’ve got so much writing to do, and I’m trying to make sure I’m taking time away. It’s not working out so well. A little time on Saturdays is about it.

We have a new neighbor, and he has got to be the most bizarre person I’ve ever met. Though when I say “met”, I mean it in the loosest term of the word. As I was walking in, He came out the front door to look through the window, though why is anyone’s guess since he has windows facing the front of the house from which you can see more of the road. I know because our front windows are directly above his, and at one point in time, I actually liked one of the people who lived beneath us. For about five minutes. The new neighbor was on the phone, but he was nice enough to say hello, rather than ignore me.  Read more…

Some Things That are Driving Me Crazy

Thing 1 – Possessive Nouns

I try not to be a grammar Nazi. Heaven knows my grammar isn’t perfect. I suck at commas. I still mix up “affect” and “effect”. I only just learned when to use “past” and “passed”. But the amount of people who have no idea how to correctly write possessive nouns drives me absolutely insane. INSANE!

Let me start by pointing you to a website every writer should at least have bookmarked. It’s called Daily Writing Tips, and if they haven’t covered it already, write them, and they will. Read more…

Product Review: Goliath by @Tantus

February 6th, 2011 1 comment

goliath_groupOoo, what’s that?

So either Tantus modeled Goliath after a real live penis, or Goliath’s designer has spent quite a bit of time studying penises. Because as I inspect the head of my Goliath, I notice quite a few interesting marks that are similar to marks I’ve noticed on M’s head.

Not the same, mind. I won’t pretend M’s so special He has a Tantus dildo modeled after Him. Just very similar. Suggesting that penises I never spent much time idolizing or marveling over probably have similar markings as well. I wonder if penises have their own special markings. No two penis prints are alike? Like fingerprints, and toe prints, and snowflakes.

Anyway, the cat’s out of the bag. That, my dears, is the Tantus Goliath. And I love him. Read more…

Product Review: Zeppelin Cocoon by @Liberator

February 5th, 2011 12 comments

Ooo, what’s that?

Pretty much we’ve died and gone to Liberator heaven. M and me, I mean. I’m sitting here at a complete loss for words.

You’ve heard me talking about it on Twitter and FetLife. You’ve seen pictures of my brat cat laying on it. And if you’re super lucky, I’ve linked you to the product page a hundred times. We’re just totally in love with this thing. So in love with it, in fact, that we’re seriously considering trading our bed in for one of the larger versions. That’s no joke.

It’s the Liberator Zeppelin Cocoon, and it is, hands down, my favorite Liberator piece so far. Read more…

I am drunk, but this makes sense.

I’m in a bit of a pickle. My owner is a drama queen.

Bear with me.

So, we’ve watched Scrubs all the way through at least twice. And somewhere in there, J.D. dates the chick from Butterfly Effect, whose husband is in a coma. And she’s a drama queen. As in, she thrives on drama. She can’t be in a relationship unless there’s occasional insanity.

I think Master’s like that. I’m pretty sure I’m like that. But I think my owner is, too. Read more…

No Stupid (Kink) Questions: Episode 12 – Toy Bags

February 2nd, 2011 4 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 12:

I’m just starting this submissive gig, and people keep talking about things like “bonded” toys, and such. What the heck is a bonded toy? Do I need my own toy bag? And if so, what should be in it?

A “bonded toy” (there are other terms, but this is the one I’ve heard the most) is a toy that is made of a material that is unsafe to share between partners without some form of protection because it’s been used by someone without protection. So, like, a leather whip someone’s bled on, or a TPE toy someone inserted without a condom. Read more…
