At the very end of last year, I opened my email and was absolutely delighted to see a message from Molly (of Molly’s Daily Kiss) asking if she could interview me for her new podcast, the KissCast. Of course I said yes – how awesome was that?
So in early January we got together on Skype and talked enthusiastically about many things, the end result of which is this, the fourth episode of the KissCast. (I recommend the others as well – they’re great listening!) Molly was a wonderful host who asked great questions about all sorts of things. Between the laughter there may even have been some answers!
For a long time I was uncomfortable with the term ‘queer’ – at least when it came to applying it to myself. Despite knowing that many people regard it as an umbrella term for those of diverse sexual orientations and gender identities, it didn’t feel like it was a label that was right for me.
I’m quite particular about my labels. I really like to have them, with the proviso that I have chosen them myself – and I write them on removable stickers, in pencil! So sure, I’ve plastered myself with pansexual and polyamorous – either of which is enough for various friends to tell me that the label suited me. But I needed to work it through for myself, to see if it was a term I could come to terms with, reconcile to my sense of identity.
The morning after I returned from Melbourne, I woke up to an email from Amie Wee, asking if I wanted to come with her and get interviewed about sex blogging and social media for this show called The Social Life.
Me: jetlagged, bruised, and very tired. So why the hell not?
I’m very glad I took Amie, and Lewis Bostock, up on their invitation. I had a lovely time, and I think the interview came out fantastically. Having permission to wear m’Lady’s collar calmed and centred me, too.
I seem to be all over the internets at the moment… which is pretty cool, actually!
A roundup of me-ness from the last week:
The delectably tart Luka interviewed me over at the Boudoir, drinking tea and letting it all hang out on her chaise lounge. This was the inaugural Boudoir interview, and she is looking for more exhibitionistic folks – so let her know if you’re interested!
I really have a thing for long hair on guys. Really really – I love it! But what’s the appeal? Why the attraction? Exploring Intimacy interviewed me and asked just that – and here’s what I had to say.
Today we’re thrilled to have the lovely and curvaceous Dee, telling us about her love of men with long, sexy hair. You may know Dee from her popular and sexy blog – if not, check it out. It’s sure to be a favorite! In addition to be an award winning blogger, she is also an official greeter at Fetlife.com. Take special note, geeks, as Dee is a woman who knows how to appreciate your beautiful hair!
The incomparable Thursday’s Child is currently running a project about Sex and Intimacy. I was intrigued by the concept, and took the time to complete her questionnaire, which has since appeared on her blog. It’s part of a series of interviews, and they’re well worth the read. This post contains my responses, which you can also read here.
What does intimacy mean to you? How do you define intimacy?
