My comfort zone is expanding, and my passions are all coming together in a flurry of exposition and explanation, art and heart. Pushing my limits as a writer feels good. Being who I am feels great.

Fuzzy handcuffs and silk ties on headboards are the only representations of bondage many people have encountered. Before my involvement at the BSPC, I had no exposure to Shibari, Kinbaku, or the art, sensuality, and beauty of rope bondage. Once I started to explore rope, it didn’t take long for me to fall in love.

Calling your partner ‘Daddy’ has nothing to do with visualizing your literal father. Each set of labels used by kinksters practicing power exchange captures unique nuances about the dynamic they’ve chosen. Using ‘Daddy’ on the dominant side of the equation implies that the Dominant takes care of the submissive, acting as a provider who gives guidance to an innocent. Other titles have their own nuances.

The sex-positive movement is important to me. Working towards a culture where sexuality and sexual expression are not swept under the carpet is imperative. Not everyone is in a place where they’re able to talk about these things out loud, and I want to lend my voice to those people. By sharing my knowledge and experiences, I hope to contribute to a better understanding of things that people misunderstand and look down upon.

Now that's a hat!
In the words of his classmate "woah, Danny you've got a situation"
Media that equates dieting with treating your body ‘right’ or ‘with respect’ reminds me that by not doing those things, I am wrong and disrespectful of my body and self.

This may seem like an exaggeration to some people. I’m willing to bet that those people have not ever lived in a fat body.

What happens when the medication that’s supposed to help becomes harmful?

Two weeks in, I’d worked my way up to about half of the intended full dose. I was so exhausted on Wednesday driving home from work that I almost fell asleep. When I got home, I got my kids dinner and then I cried. For two hours.

We filled up 2 rows with all the parents and grandparents. He is getting so good, it's wonderful to watch him learn and grow.
We have to forget about policing access, is impossible. There is no doubt in my mind that both of my kids will do these kinds of searches. I would have too if I’d had the same access at their age! Curiosity is part of the human experience, as are the trials of puberty. So it’s my job to educate them on knowing what they’re looking at, when to trust it, and most importantly that if they aren’t sure, I am here for them.
