Negotiations (the long game)
So, for the past year or so I've been demoing a violet wand or DMing at 101 nights with some frequency. In that I have the wand and it's a touch showy, I often offer it as a centerpiece of a scene. Results:
Person 1. "Eeek. I hate electrical play."
Person 2. "Not with me. I've tried it and didn't care for it."
Person 3. "I've never tried it but it seems like a lot more than I'd want to try."
Person 3 did try it and is now a Violet Wand Devotee, so at least one win. It's also put edge play and encouragement in a bright light for me. Now, 1 & 2 had tried violet wands and didn't like them. 3 hadn't. I dropped the topic with 1 & 2, and encouraged 3 to at least let me show them how it felt. I was totally prepared to put it away if the response had been, "Ug. Icky."
Now this is where the current, "No means No," discussion comes into play. There are, "No,"s and there are, "No"s. ( Read more...Collapse )

Every few weeks I get something in my in box that relates the story of someone who discovered that recognizable nude photos of themselves or pictures of them too drunk to walk or photos of them using a bong taken while they were invincible (aka in college) have come back to bite them.
I've known some people first hand who've had their blog cracked and linked back to them. I've also seen people taking down their LJ accounts, which can be locked down (i.e. friends only) only to retain their Fetlife accounts which are fairly open by comparison.
Facebook is the antichrist of precautions in that their model is that everything should be freely available to increase the networking on the site; "Hi. I noticed that you also collected arrowheads. We should chat and become a target for marketers of arrowhead display devices." This inner relating of random things can make you a target ... and in being a target, be sale-able to facebooks customers -- the ones actually paying money to facebook.
If it's illegal, it can get you in trouble. If it's embarrassing, it could get you in trouble. If it's anything you wouldn't want your parents to know about when you were 15, it can get you in trouble.
Trouble you say?
Yes, such as:( Read more...Collapse )

At Home Insemination for the LGBT Community
Have you and your partner contemplated having a baby? Have you done research about your options and found nothing that isn't expensive or takes years of waiting? This is a problem that plagues the LGBT community.There is a solution, though. Women have turned to home insemination kits in order to conceive. Home insemination is an affordable solution for the LGBT community and has emerged as a real solution for women who want to conceive.At Home Insemination vs. IVF and AI
Artificial Insemination and IVF treatments are so incredibly costly, and in this economy it makes it very hard for any couple to even consider having a baby. The success rates of AI are anywhere from 5-25%. Did you know that when couples attempt to get pregnant, the at home success rates are almost identical to that percentage?
Why spend thousands of dollars on AI when you can spend significantly less, have the same success rates, and be able to stay in the privacy of your own home?
This is a question women are asking themselves. Is it really worth it to go through the emotionally exhausting and financially draining IVF procedure?
Instead of choosing IVF or AI at a fertility clinic, women are choosing at home insemination. With at home insemination kits, they can have everything they need at their disposal. They are able to inseminate themselves with the same success rate as they would in a doctor's office, and spend less money.
For significantly less cost, women can now have the same technology they would get in a doctor's office. This makes the choice very easy for many women.
Those who are interested in at home insemination can choose The Total Conception. The Total Conception was designed specifically for the LGBT community. The kit provides women with the best technology in order to help them conceive.

SFW - Stoya's first porn
But sexy times....
By the way, the girl in this clip is Stoya, whom i guess is kind of a famous now: Stoya's myspace
In this video, which was shot in InnerPartySystem
's basement, Stoya (the star) is getting eaten out by her boyfriend.
From what i understand, Stoya wanted to do porn and so this was her first video... after the director shot this in IPS's basement she went away and became some big porn star. she's even starring in this huge production porn that's a remake of Pirates of the Carribean:

If any of you could lend me your ear and offer me some advice, I would be extremely grateful. I've been with my girl for about a year and a half, and as of lately all the spark is gone from our relationship. I love her very very much but I have trouble showing her that, and as a result, its starting to take a toll on our relationship. Does anyone have any ideas how I could show her how much I cherish her, or any ideas to let her know how much I desire her.
Thank you in advance.

xposted to a few other similar communities.
I've always had a cemetery fetish. I love them.. I love being in them, I love taking pictures of them, I love learning about them. And, of course, I've always wanted to have sex in one.
Rich and I did. (Before someone yells, please note that we didn't actually have sex ON a grave.)
