Intriguing Reading #94

Posted on | July 29, 2015 | No Comments

My irregular roundup of interesting reads, found from all over the place.

Content Notes: discussions of infertility; sex work prejudice; disability

My Own Struggle With Infertility Has Made Me More Fiercely Pro-Choice Than Ever: “Despite what the anti-choice lobby will have you believe, I’ve heard that being pregnant can be pretty taxing. I mean, you’re growing a human and all. It seems like that’s a lot of work for a body to take on” (Cecilia Wharton / xoJane)

By our own hands: society’s fraught and shameful relationship with masturbation: “Masturbation is not an inferior version of partnered sex, rather it’s an entirely different act – one is about my relationship with myself, the other about my relationship with my partner.” (Michelle Dicinoski / Archer)

If You’re Against Sex Work, You’re a Bigot: “Distorting and destroying consent is the foundation of anti-sex activism. It has to be, because otherwise the bigots have no ground to stand on when sex workers state, again and again, they are working out of choice.” (Conner Habib / The Stranger)

Verbal Limits: “If physical domination is a piano concerto, verbal domination – and especially verbal humiliation – is often treated more like experimental jazz. Touch and feel, not rules and discipline. Blurred lines. Intuition. It’s natural to see it that way, but it can also be risky, because unlike when you’re whacking my arse with paddle, the pain isn’t always so obvious; so easy to measure and articulate.” (Exhibit A)

Sex, Lives and Disability: “The fight for so-called sexual citizenship is not confined to the disability rights movement. Campaigners demonstrate how sexual minorities are marginalised, denied equal access and even criminalised in particular nations. But while there is a common aim for sexual rights to be seen as fundamental, the means are in dispute.” (Katharine Quarmby / Mosaic)

Cult of the Spankers: the X-rated artists who turned Times Square into smut central: “These pulp paperbacks were not just rare; they’d been banned. For years, politicians and preachers did everything they could to stamp them out (even though very few members of the public ever saw them). I managed to track down a government list of 72 seized titles. They had names like Raw Dames, European Brothels, Mrs Tyrant’s Finishing School and Cult of the Spankers. It was like dangling raw meat before a lion; I had to find them all.” (Jim Linderman / The Guardian)

Slippery Slope

Posted on | July 12, 2015 | 14 Comments

When it’s the middle of winter and there’s been a lot of rain, and the claggy clay is threatening to overwhelm everything … naturally putting a heavy digger on the slope is going to fix everything! (I feel a bit sorry for this property owner.)

And naturally I took the opportunity to flash in front of it. Which involved standing on the guttering at the edge of the road, barely avoiding the mess. I was rather delighted though!

I was so pleased Demeter spotted this. We drove back to this spot after taking those great photos by the dam :)

In other news, it seems my social media presence is also on the slippery slope. Twitter SUSPENDED my account (which I’ve had for just shy of 8 years) on Friday. I have no idea why, unfortunately. So, what should I do? Battle to get it reinstated – I’ve started that process, but it may be weeks – or start another in the meantime? Your thoughts would be welcome.

ETA: You can find me (for now) @curvy_dee. Come say hi!

Bridge Walk

I felt like playing with animations today, and there was a set of photos Tethys took during my visit last November that I thought would work well.

(This is from the same daytrip to Kinglake as in this post – just a little further up the trail, in fact!)

I miss Melbourne, and Tethys. I don’t miss the heat that was there last visit though!

Intriguing Reading #93

Posted on | June 16, 2015 | No Comments

My irregular roundup of interesting reads, found from all over the place.

Content Notes: Discussions of suicide; fat negativity

Disposable tampons aren’t sustainable, but do women want to talk about it?: “It seems counterintuitive that despite the explosion of sustainable options for a broad range of products over the past five years – clothing, food, baby care, coffee, skincare, cleaning products – options for this most intimate and inconvenient aspect of women’s lives have scarcely changed in a century.” (Rosie Spinks / Guardian)

What It’s Like Recovering From a Suicide Attempt: “But despite the prevalence of wanting to talk about mental illness, there still remains a murky fear of it, as if acknowledging that we all have a sensitive organ floating in cerebrospinal fluid within our skull may open up some sort of portal into the abyss and make us all lose it. This is, of course, total, A-grade bullshit.” (David Whelan / VICE)

Body, fat, memory and the massage table: “I think about the layers of embarrassment, fear, shame, class identity and lack of entitlement, lack of access that stops people from getting mostly naked and allowing a stranger to touch them. I reflect on how getting massages has been one of the ways in which I have been able to make sense of and make room for my own body.” (Dr Charlotte Cooper)

Casual Love: “But why not have the option of exploring love, too, with or without a side of commitment? If we can agree that our bodies are not inherently dangerous, can’t we do the same for our hearts? I suggest we take a page from the casual sex book here. Let’s lift some of the weighty grandiosity off the shoulders of love, and allow it to be what it is: a sweet, ephemeral, exciting feeling to experience and share.” (Carsie Blanton)

Lessons From a ‘Local Food’ Scam Artist: ” The idea that I might know something about vegetables that they, with their sophisticated-yet-earthy palates and vaunted vegetable-selecting skills, didn’t, was a disruption to their foodie performance.” (Alison Kinney / Narratively)

Delightful Dam

Posted on | June 14, 2015 | 18 Comments

When Demeter and I went away last weekend I had no idea what to expect. We were going to a part of the country I’d never been to before, and I was looking forward to seeing what there was to see as a happy passenger.

But as she and I randomly drove around Waihi Beach on the Saturday, neither of us were expecting to find a stunning man-made lake; a dam and spillway, in fact.

It was utterly deserted – we found it at the end of a road up the top of a hill, as we’d been driving up up up in an attempt to get a good view of the beach – so nakedness was mooted and delightedly agreed upon.

(Yes, it was indeed bloody cold.)

It may not be a view of the beach. But it was absolutely perfect nonetheless :)

Demeter took the photos of me; I took the photos of the water. Teamwork!

Chilly Waters

Posted on | June 7, 2015 | 18 Comments

It was a chilly winter’s day in the Bay of Plenty when Demeter and I found this stunning deserted spot – holidays are great for finding beauty in unexpected places, and this one was no exception.

But it’s winter! Cold! Who cares about the cold when there’s an opportunity to be naked? When we stumbled across this spot it wasn’t long before I stripped off my merino top, bra, cardigan, thick socks, jeans and sneakers (with Demeter chortling all the while), and proceeded to check out the water’s edge.

Silly me – the water’s even colder than the air! But so still – I love the ripple you can see simply from dipping my toes in.

This is the original image – the one above has a colour filter on it as part of this month’s prompt. I like it – I think I’ll be playing with filters some more.

Next weekend I’ll be posting more photographs of this amazing place.

Looking at …

Posted on | May 31, 2015 | 18 Comments

It’s been a long, not-so-brilliant month. There’s been some good moments, and even a few good days, but overall this May has been incredibly challenging. May is generally a hard time for me, but this year was a doozy.

You may have noticed the lack of posts recently. I’ve had no impetus to write; no drive to share. There’s been some sexy stuff going on – including some good wanking – but I’ve not been talking about it much. Unusual, I know!

Finally, thankfully, tomorrow is June. It’ll be winter proper (it’s the southern hemisphere after all) and officially no longer that month. I’m looking forward to it.

And I’m looking at you, as you look at me, too.

I took this photo this afternoon, eye-twitch and all. It’s me, now, just as I am.

Fizzing

Posted on | May 3, 2015 | 19 Comments

Sometimes you just need a drink. And when it has a name like this, of course I’m going to try it out! (Also, ice cream soda – yum.)

Experience the blast!

Quenching the thirst of today’s generation!

I know – it’s unreal, isn’t it? I wouldn’t believe it without the photographic evidence, as I only ever saw it for sale the once. Still, it’s a pretty apt description…

The theme for Sinful Sunday this week is ‘no humans’. I’m glad I hadn’t used this photo before now!

“Why haven’t you peed yet?”

Posted on | May 1, 2015 | 5 Comments

That’s what I kept asking Hylas on Tuesday evening, as he sat on the lounge floor painting my toes for me. Why did I want him to pee? Well, he was wearing his rubber piss pants, and I wanted the bag to be less than empty when I took photographs!

“Drink some more,” I encouraged him. “Please, pet?”

I got to spend the evening perving at his cock – and got gorgeous toenails – so his minimal peeing wasn’t a disaster (that, and I got to make him shoot ejaculate within his suit. Hotness!).

And before I crashed out for the night, I finally got to take some photos in the bathroom. What a great set-up this is – he can go the entire night without having to use the toilet, and the bag just gets more and more distended.

rubber hose urine

This is not terribly full. But it’s not empty!

As you can see, it’s pretty cleverly arranged. He’s been known to wear it beneath jeans (where he’s extremely aware of the bulge, but no one else really notices, except me). Combined with his ‘shorty’ catsuit over the top and a slim buttplug in his arse, he’s all rubbered up, full up, and ready for me to tease!

Peeing? No, it’s not my thing. Except for when it is :)

Intriguing Reading #92

Posted on | April 28, 2015 | No Comments

My irregular roundup of interesting reads, found from all over the place.

Content Notes: mental ill-health; chronic illness

How To Be an Ex-Porn Star: 10 Tips on Taking a Break: “Stories about someone’s “porn past” surfacing are always on the tip of the media’s tongue.  Porn pasts “surface” because people tried to bury them.  But there is no such thing as “after porn ends” anymore.  Porn is like that old tattoo you have: whether or not it still suits you, you’re going to (at least!) have to learn to love it as representing a specific mindset and time in your life.” (Conner Habib)

Fighting the Black Dog: “It was the cliché, right there, in my sick face. People understand a broken leg better than a broken head.” (Beck Eleven)

Cyborgs I Have Loved: “Whatever the reason, people everywhere are pushing the bounds of what human beings are capable of, even going so far as to alter their physical bodies and neural pathways, sometimes for no reason greater than curiosity.” (Arikia Millikan / Motherboard)

What Happens When You Lose Your Virginity?: “While the word is useful in certain circumstances, asking ‘what is virginity?’ becomes a bit like asking ‘what is breakfast?’ To you it might be toast, to me it’s cereal, to your mate over there with a hefty appetite and exquisite taste it’s a bacon sandwich with ketchup.” (Girl on the Net)

“Big Pharma” & Privilege: Or Why I Wish Allies Would Stop Using This Phrase: “You, my able-bodied friends, are only in charge of your own body. Not anyone else’s. And your “well-intentioned” judgement come off as privileged assholery to those of us who are living a daily reality with chronic illness or disability.” (Camilla Laurentine)
