Happy Tuesday everyone! Yes, I know I should blog about new things, but given my limited Internet access, TMI Tuesday is about all I can manage. This week’s is all about the rest of the Internet! And some other stuff.
1. Do you write/manage another blog?
Several, actually. I’ve hopped around different blogging platforms as they rose and fell. I’ve also had a lot of other Internet-related interests, particularly – ahaha – fandom. I currently run a couple other blogs for personal and work-related issues, but I can’t share them until I take some precautions so this blog doesn’t get traced back to me.
2. Pick 3 random blogs from your blogroll and tell us why they are on your blog roll.
I have a very small blogroll, since I only add people when they ask or for giveaway purposes. I meant to add more of interest, but I am very lazy and very busy.
KissinBlueKaren – I love Karen. Her reviews are actually useful, and she includes a lot of personal content as well. All around cool. And awesome.
Lucid Obsession – Her reviews are short and sweet, but what I really love is her sharing interesting tidbits – random positions, amazingly hilarious messages from OKCupid…
Skin & Lace – Like Karen, I added her because her blog was mostly personal content. Not just commercial stuff and reviews, but a lot of things that made her relatable and real.
3. Look around your blog, tell us about two pages or links you want us to visit, be sure to provide a link to them in your answer to this question.
UMMMMM – to be honest, there’s not that much to tell you about. You should watch these videos, but only because they’re awesome and hilarious, not because of anything special I did. And if you really want to learn stuff about me, you should read any/all of my TMI Tuesday entries.
4. Do you have any unique interests that you have never shared before? What are they?
Never shared? No, not really, I share all my interests somewhere. Three that I don’t talk about much here are: dancing, manga/anime, and jewelry-making. I love dancing and wish I had more time for it (and could afford the classes/lessons it would take to make me really good). I actually have started reading a lot of hentai since I find erotica and porn to be a little disappointing (I’ll start reviewing all three “soon”). And the last is really just a hobby, though I have been debating making it a full-time thing for awhile. Mostly now I make myself jewelry to go with my fancy dresses for fancy occasions like weddings.
5. What’s your current obsession?
Getting back into anime and taking care of my hair and skin. I don’t really have strong obsessions, they sort of ebb and flow more than anything else.
Bonus: Has blogging helped or hurt your sex life?
Hmmm… I would say helped. I’m much more open to talking about it, and while this hasn’t really helped me in the dating department, I’d say that sex is more satisfying now, whether with a partner or alone. I mean, I certainly have no evidence that blogging has hurt my sex life.

Hello everyone! I hope this Tuesday finds you well. This week’s TMI Tuesday is about filling in the blanks. I worked really hard to come up with a way to make that dirty, and failed miserably. Oh well. Maybe next week.
1. I’m the type of person that likes to be comfortable in bed.
Which, by the way, is totally true. Sinking into a nice mattress and sheets is one of the best things ever.
But okay, more in the spirit of the question – I’m the type of person that likes to be submissive, spread out and used, worn out in bed.
2. If the sexiest person I know propositioned me for sex, I would die of embarrassment.
Actually, I think I misread the question. That’s just if the sexiest person I can think of propositioned me.
If the sexiest person I know propositioned me for sex, I would flirt and be coy while taking off my shirt.
3. The worst part about the lights being on when I am naked is you can see everything.
I have this weird thing about lights on during sex. I can’t stand it. Sex during the day, while it’s naturally light, is fine. But I just don’t like having all the lights on at night. I have no idea why. Snuggling is fine with lights on, fooling around is fine with lights on. As soon as my clothes come off though, I expect the lights to get dimmer. In fact, even if my clothes don’t come off, I expect the lights to go off too. Which is totally weird since I don’t mind walking around naked during the day, but hey. We’re all a little bit crazy.
4. I regret my first reciprocated love.
It’s really sad to me to think that I regret loving. But I’d be lying if I didn’t admit that a little part of me does regret it. I’d loved before but it ended horribly and was overall just a mess. Despite all the problems I could see, I let myself fall in love again with someone who said they loved me. I still believe they did (do), but given the way he ended things I can’t help but wonder sometimes if he really meant it. I know he did, and I know I have only myself to blame because I knew there was no future and no way out but to be hurt, but I think that’s why I regret it. I knew better, but I did it anyway. I was asking to get burned. And I can’t believe I was that stupid. I deluded myself into thinking that because he loved me he’d change his mind about us. I wanted it so badly that I ignored all common sense and good judgement.
I don’t entirely regret it. I don’t even wish it hadn’t happened, because it was magical and special and wonderful and everything that I’d been waiting my whole life to feel. But there will always be that twinge of regret because I let myself get so caught up.
5. The last sexual/kinky thing I expected to like was being on top.
To be honest, I’m not entirely convinced I do like it. But I like the response it gets from guys.
6. Recently, I sexted/sent naughty pictures to someone.
That requires no explanation 😉
Bonus: You have been kidnapped by lesbians and dragged into a lesbian orgy, what are you going to do?
Enjoy it? I don’t really see the point of trying to escape, it’s not like they’re trying to kill me. I’m sure they’ll let me go when they’re done with me, and it doesn’t sound like there will be any lasting damage.

Yes, I will post for TMI Tuesday tomorrow, but for tonight, have another giveaway post! Personally, I hate Valentine’s Day (it’s easy to when you’re single), but it’s awesome because everyone is hosting pretty amazing giveaways.
I’ve pimped Blue Karen’s giveaways before here, and I’m here to do it again! Everyone, EVERYONE, knows that I love lingerie. It makes me feel sexy and pretty when I don’t otherwise, plus it’s just a lot of fun to have. Even if no one sees it, you know what you’re wearing and how amazing it is. Luckily for me (and all you other lingerie lovers), Madame Liberty is teaming up with Blue Karen to give away the winner’s choice of one of three bra and panties sets! All of the three choices are gorgeous, but my personal favorite is the one pictured above, Spice Bazaar. I just love the colors and the intricacy of the pattern, and may even buy myself a set if I’m not the lucky winner!
You can enter here – the first entry is easy! After that you’ll need either Twitter or Facebook, but only 3 of the entry methods require Facebook.
Happy Tuesday! This week’s TMI Tuesday questions are incredibly boring, but I’m answering anyway since I need the motivation to keep posting. Let’s fill the empty time!
1. When you bought your bed frame, did you evaluate it in terms of ropes, handcuffs, etc?
2. Aside from beds, was sex ever a major consideration in choosing a piece of furniture?
3. Have you ever had anyone else (friend, mom) say a piece of your furniture was inappropriate because it was clearly for sexual purposes?
4. Do you have a piece of furniture that has a stain caused by bodily fluids (baby vomit not included)?
5. Do you have anything in your beside table you wouldn’t want your father or mother to know about?
No. My bedside table is just a table, so there’s no “in” to it.
6. Do you own any exercise equipment that is useful for sex?
I… don’t even know what that means. I have 2 weights, a beat-up yoga mat, and a pair of running shoes.
7. Aside from your bedroom, what room do you have sex in most often?
8. Do you have any electronics (TV, stereo) etc in your bedroom that are on during sex?
I don’t have any electronics in my bedroom besides a clock.
Here’s hoping for a better next week!

First, you may know by now that my goal in life (after, you know, paying off student loans, finding the perfect job, getting married, finally being pretty, all that good stuff) is to own an collection exclusively of the prettiest sex toys. I’ve been working on this for years now on a very small budget. Like, miniscule. When I first saw this giveaway floating around on Twitter, I had never heard of the G Spot Lollipop. I went to the website… and fell in love. They are the freaking cutest things ever. They don’t look like a sex toy. They come in girly colors. You can take super adorable pictures with them. See above (clicking on the image will take you to the company website).
Yes, of course it’s great that they have such potential as sex toys as well. It’s an incredibly simple idea that may be less intimidating than a traditional g-spot vibrator, which can be quite large. It seems like you could get a lot more control with the shape to either find your g-spot or apply pressure, as needed. Really, I’m still blown away by how simple the design is and how different it is from most other popular sex toys.
Additionally, I started following Jen on Geek In Me Reviews and I have to say that I really like her! She is super friendly and knows all the best stuff (this is so not just because anyone who likes Sherlock is automatically awesome). So double the bonus!
Jen and G Spot Lollipop are giving away a Double Pop in Pink for Valentine’s Day! The entries are very simple and only a couple require a Facebook login. I’m so excited someone will get to win one! (Seriously, they are just that cute.)
HA! I’m totally here for TMI Tuesday! This week’s questions hilariously ask you to describe something using a title.
1. Describe your or a lover’s penis with a movie title.
In Good Company.
Okay, I swear, I’m done with the lame jokes. (Apparently I learned something from him.)
While You Were Sleeping. Totally my favorite movie ever, by the way.
2. Describe your pussy or a lover’s pussy with a movie title.
I have significantly fewer bad jokes and puns for this one. The Last Kiss.
3. Describe your last sexual encounter with a song title.
“Give a Little More” by Maroon 5.
4. Describe your body with a song title.
iTunes came up with a lot of hilarious options for me, but this is my favorite: “Like This” by Wonder Girls.
5. Describe your sexual appetite with a book, song, or movie title.
Hahahaha! “Good Time” by Owl City feat. Carly Rae Jepsen.
Bonus: Recommend your favorite sexy, sensual or kink oriented book.
I’ve been reading hentai recently because I personally like the mix of visuals and words (as opposed to all words, which sometimes get awkward and… let’s face it, weird) with pure fantasy, since there are no real people involved. Velvet Kiss sets a pretty high standard, in my opinion, for quality art and story. Yes, I swear there’s a story. And it’s pretty good.
That was surprisingly brief. And easy, once I looked through my DVD collection and stopped thinking about vaginas and Apocalypse Now.

Miss me? Somehow I doubt it 😉 But yes, I am back, at least temporarily. Part of this is that I have a new smartphone and OH MY GODS IT DOES STUFF. I can post to Twitter, I can bookmark interesting images and sites, I can use Yelp on the go to find lingerie stores… It’s crazy. How did I live without one before?!
The other part is what is with each passing day looking increasingly like heartbreak, which is a lot less exciting. Suddenly my life has a lot of time in it. For someone who was “not a real boyfriend” I built my life around him as if he was, and I’m only now becoming aware of it. No wonder everyone thought I was dating. I have no idea what’s really going on, so I haven’t really had a lot of violent mood swings or cries. If I had to pick, I’d say I’m just nursing a sense of anger and betrayal.
One of the things I cannot stand to hear but have now heard every time someone has broken up with me is, “You deserve better.”
Okay. Maybe they’ve all actually meant this. Maybe they were all being nice guys. But to be honest, to me it always translates to, “I found someone better.” It doesn’t help that it’s always true. Either they literally have found someone better, or they’re going out with someone new within days.
I’m not sure I’d actually prefer to hear the truth. I’m already sensitive about how sparse my relationship record is. I think what I don’t like is knowing that I’m being lied to. I love white lies and sugar-coating. Believe me, I tell them and do it all the time at work. But when it comes to relationships, I feel like any guy who says that to me thinking that I’ll believe him is just patronizing me. As if I can’t see through the patent falsehood, like I won’t notice him with someone else at that party, like I haven’t heard that he’s hooking up with my best friend, like I won’t keep hearing, “I said I loved you, but I guess I just love her more.”
Or is it that it makes it sound like I don’t even know what’s good for me, what’s right for me? I admit that I’m terrible at knowing these things, especially apparently when it comes to relationships. But I firmly believe that even if it’s a stupid decision, if it feels right in my heart, then I can’t go wrong. Not because it won’t explode in my face, but because at least then I took a stand without regret. I don’t regret falling for guys and holding on for dear life. I regret those relationships not working out, of course, but I don’t regret what I did. I literally force guys to break up with me because I won’t let go. But to hear, “You deserve better” just sounds like he knows better. He knows what’s good for me. He knows that I’m just being irrational because I didn’t want better, I just wanted him. He knows that it’ll all work out for me someday, because it all worked out for him, didn’t it?
And by saying, “You deserve better,” he can dust his hands off and never worry about it again. He took responsibility, admitted he wasn’t right for me, and now everything else is my problem. If I’m heartbroken – well, that’s just because I haven’t seen the light yet. If I’m upset because I feel used – well, all the more reason he wasn’t good enough for me. If I feel small and empty and worthless – well, obviously he told me that wasn’t true, so what’s my problem? He gets to go back to his comfortable new relationship and not worry about me.
I’m sure that this is a line I’ll be tempted to use someday, if I ever get the privilege of breaking up with someone (so far I’ve only been broken up with – the downside of being so selective about who I fall for). And I’m sure part of me will mean it. Maybe all of me. And I’m sure he’ll disagree. He’ll feel like I do now (or will, when enough time has passed that I can officially put it down as a breakup).
So someone has to remind me not to. The person I usually ask to remind me about things isn’t around anymore, so here you go Internet, do your thing.
Hopefully I’ll be back on Tuesday for TMI Tuesday. Cross your fingers! I have to teach on Tuesday night so hopefully I will have some time during the day.

Greetings! Did you miss me? I finally don’t have the plague, and I’m writing this early because I’m working all day tomorrow. Yes, I’ve figured that I’ll actually use some of the nifty functions of WordPress.
This week’s TMI Tuesday is super hot and I can’t stop fantasizing. I wish I had toys with me right now. And that my partner could have phone sex. At least I can anticipate that he’ll have a good masturbation session when he reads this.
1. I enjoy the idea that my partner wants to inflict pain on me that:
a. makes me curious
b. is titillating and sexually arousing
c. that leaves me screaming and/or crying because that’s the way I like it
All of the above. A in the sense that I like a surprise spanking or other surprising pain that makes me anticipate the next act or wonder what my partner will do next. I am completely turned on by roughness within limits, so B is always on the table. And C is not so much crying, but I do like it when it hurts enough to make me cry out and refocus my attention. I’m especially fond of nipple play (though I have not yet had success with nipple clamps, since all they seem to do is fall off).
2. Do you like being forced to dress or act in a way that is humiliating? If yes, please describe. If no, why not?
Yes, but of course within limits, and this is because I enjoy power play. I love giving my partner power over me, both because it’s an incredible turn-on and because I’m comfortable with it because I trust him, which itself is fun. I love begging. So I have a deeply exciting and detailed fantasy of being an obliging work subordinate (usually a secretary, even though I’m grossly overqualified) who is given very specific instructions on how to dress and act for my boss (my partner). Not to divulge all the details, but in this fantasy my required dress code is tall heels, lace panties, a skirt, an unlined lace bra, and a button-down blouse. On Fridays I’m required to forgo the panties. When my boss has to work late I’m required to stay and lie naked on his couch, waiting to service him without complaint if he so requires. If he has to come in early I have to be there even before he is, ready to serve him tea or coffee in a skimpy French maid uniform – and ready to do anything else he asks of me. When he has a phone meeting I must ride him at his desk – silently, of course. And so on.
I also frequently indulge in a student-teacher fantasy, in which I beg for grades. Which is silly, since I would never need to do it, but incredibly hot.
I also like to be told what to say; one of my favorites is being told to say how much I want my partner and how I would do anything to have him fuck me.
But you already knew I was a huge submissive anyway.
3. Do you like seeing bruises, scars, or marks that were caused during sex on either you or your partner? What kind of marks?
Not so much bruises or scars (I get those from things like martial arts and dance), but I do like hickeys. And he kind of likes it when I dig my nails in, so I could probably get into seeing some scratch marks on his back. Or ass.
4. Would you like to be forced to do sexual things that you don’t necessarily like to do? Yes or No.
Depends, but in a way that’s true of all sex. If I’m with someone I don’t really like, then I set the boundaries and absolutely refuse to do things. One of the things that I have refused to do in the past is speak in a foreign language during sex. However, I frequently tell my partner how much I enjoy it when he orders me to say things or repeat what he says, so it’s not so much the act of being forced to say things, but rather who is forcing me to do them. I don’t like being on top (mostly because I feel less sexy when I’m on top) and it seems a little counter-intuitive to be forced to be on top, but I occasionally choose to be on top because I know my partner loves it, and I wouldn’t mind being forced into that position. (Actually, now I’m thinking about it. I’m kind of turned on.) I guess what it comes down to is that what I like is the act of being “forced” by someone I trust, so the fact that generally I wouldn’t like to do the act becomes moot.
5. Do you want to be forced to watch your lover with someone else? Yes, No or It depends.
It depends. In hypothetical terms I feel like it could be a huge turn-on, especially since I already love power play and this would just be an incredible statement of power. I could conceivably really enjoy my partner making me watch him with someone else, telling me how much I would have to do to satisfy him, or as an act of teasing me and making me beg him. (He would never do this, I’m sure, but we’re talking in hypotheticals.) On the other hand, I’m incredibly jealous and sensitive when it comes to the way I perceive my relationships with people I feel enough for to trust to the level where this would even be a possibility. I can’t stand the thought of my partner being with someone else because he loves them more than he loves me. Just thinking about it makes me sick to my stomach and angry. So I suppose that if I could calm down enough to separate love from sex (which I do believe is possible), then I could enjoy it.
6. What dirty (sometimes inappropriate) things do you like to say to your sexual partner?
The usual? In all honesty I’m not convinced I’m very good at the dirty talk (though he is). I can be quite a tease and enjoy sexting while he’s at work (I try not to do this too often. Really). Beyond constantly affirming how good he is, I often outline pretty specific fantasies, make coy remarks about sucking him off, and beg him to fuck me. I think my favorite is reminding him that I belong to him, and that I would do anything to please him. Anything.
Bonus: Finish this statement: I like being powerful in bed because __________ .
Then everybody has a good time!
