Are avocados aphrodisiacs? Cuz I think* I’m in love….

July 22nd, 2016 2 comments

I do this thing where I don’t put anything I actually want on the grocery list.

For example, I’ve recently become obsessed with this fake guacamole, that I make myself, which is really just a smashed avocado, some fresh squeezed lime juice, and a little homemade seasoning salt (with which I’ve also become obsessed).

I really am getting rather snobby with my fresh ingredients. I blame M. After all, it was his idea.

I use the fake guacamole as mayo, or eat the fake guacamole with corn chips, like you do. Usually Santitas because they’re $2 all day, every day, at every store.

So I do this thing where I don’t put any of those things on the grocery list.

I justify it thusly: I’m the slave. I’m the only one who eats avocados. And avocados go bad rather quickly. If, for some reason, I’m unable to eat them, I’ve wasted food and Master’s money, and that’s really shitty.

Thing is, I don’t add anything I want to the grocery list, including things that last for-freaking-ever, like peanut butter, or…well, I can’t think of anything else I eat that M doesn’t, right now, but I’m sure there’s something.

So this week, when we were grocery shopping, I got all sappy over the ingredients Master brought back. I sent him off for, like, tomatoes, or something, and he returned with a giant bag of Haas avocados.

He asked if I had limes, and I told him I didn’t, but that I would survive without them. Explained that I’d run out of limes before avocados, last time, and that the mashed avocado was pretty good with just seasoning salt, so it was NBD. He came back with a giant bag of limes, anyway. He’s so thoughtful.

Anyway…that’s all I wanted to talk about. I guess I’m getting sappy in my old age.


Oh! Chili Cheese Fritos, Dr. Pepper, and pumpkin anything. Geez, they seem so obvious now.

*Lolololol of course I’m in love. “Think” sounded better. Also, yes, I realize aphrodisiacs make you horny, not in love. It was cute till you started dissecting it.

The Email I Sent LELO

July 13th, 2016 1 comment

This is the email I just sent LELO. I know I’m slow on the uptake. Honestly, it comes down to the fact that I love Charlie Sheen as an actor and I wish like hell he wasn’t such a gross person. Yeah, I know. Shitty reason. Oh well. That’s life.

I’m way too tired to go into all the details, but that’s okay! Other people have done it for me. Check out LELO HEX: You’re Not #Winning Us Over over at Marvelous Darling, and Charlie Sheen’s LELO Condoms Get the Shaft From Sex Workers, Feminist Bloggers over at The Daily Beast.

At some point, I’ll be removing their links from my site. I won’t be reviewing their products anymore, unless and until they make some changes. Which is probably something I should have mentioned in the email, but seriously…way too tired.

Have a great day. I’m gonna go nurse this concert hangover. AND I DIDN’T EVEN DRINK! Ffs.

Review Preview: Vondage by

July 12th, 2016 Comments off

Screen Shot 2016-07-12 at 9.18.59 AMThis is not a review. I repeat: This is not a review! It’s a review preview! The review will come later. I promise.

I don’t think I’ve ever done this before. Probably because I don’t remember ever being this impressed.

This is Vondage, a fully vegan bondage set by And I am absolutely gaga over the cuffs. So gaga that I just had to tell you all about them, rtfn.

I received the entire Vondage set (wrist cuffs, ankle cuffs, collar, leash, hogtie strap, blindfold–sold separately) on July 6th, and I literally haven’t taken the cuffs off except to do things that involve my hands and food or harsh chemicals. Or if we’re leaving the house, cuz it’s shorts weather, and I’m pretty sure my neighbors would lose their shit if they saw me walking around in locking black leather-looking cuffs.

Aside from wearing them constantly, I haven’t used them enough, yet, to write a full out review, but I can say that, as a 24/7 bondage tool, Vondage is #1 on my list.

Yep. You read right. #1. Read more…

I have no words.

July 8th, 2016 Comments off

I was going to post a review preview, today. I received a new vegan bondage set for review, and it’s really amazing, and I wanted to talk about it. I had actually planned to post the preview yesterday, but then…

But then, Alton Sterling was murdered by police. And the next day, Philando Castile was murdered by police in front of his fiancée and four-year-old daughter. And the next day, a sniper shot 10 police officers and two civilians at a peaceful protest in Dallas, Texas. And I can’t stop crying.

I’m struck by my loss of words. Me. At a loss for words.

566 people killed by police in 2016. Most of them people of color.

Two black men shot to death by the people charged with protecting them. Five police officers murdered, five more and two civilians injured at a peaceful protest. In three days.

And another weekend in Chicago of more than 60 shootings, pushing their victim tally over 2000 just this year.

What the fuck do you say about that?

Too many people have lost brothers, sons, fathers, mothers, sisters, wives, daughters, husbands to senseless violence. How do we make it stop? I have no answers.

(I’m aware that you lost someone to violence recently. I see you. I’m so sorry for what you’re going through. I wish I knew what to say to you. So many hugs, if you want them.)

My heart is broken.

Hug your family today if you can. Right now. If you can’t hug them, reach out to them, and let them know that you love them.

Be nice to people. Be patient. Be compassionate. I’m going to make it a point to do these things, too. Maybe it’ll make a difference. You think? We’ve got to hope.

I love you. I’m sorry you’re hurting. I’m sorry we’re hurting. Let’s work together on fixing it.
