No Assembly Required - Hand Gags Welcome again, my dear friends and readers, to another installment of keeping her quiet, an continuing multi-post series about gags in BDSM.  Other postings in the series (so far) include:

I do not believe in stifling or silencing women in everyday life, so understand that this post is about BDSM and not the politics of gender.

The title of the series, and the tone of my posts reflect my personal experience, but the su…

Leaving the world at the door

In my previous post- Sliding into Submission - working it out in real life I wanted to begin a dialogue which will help us as a couple to create a very real way to step into and back out of the work-day world.  I have been doing a lot of pondering on that topic.

Some in BDSM relationships  have very intense routines and protocols.  Routines could involve greetings, positions, and other actions that establish "We are now leaving the outside world behind and entering our sacred place."   Most of us have certain things we do. . like setting our keys, bag , and coat away.  And changing into "home" clothes.  Many of have learned that in order to keep track of things, it is helpful to consistently do some things repetitively.

In our BDSM world, there are more  people who implement protocols and rituals for some very valid reasons.  It seems like they develop an awareness or they realize a need.  One primary consideration would be the need to keep prying and critical eyes …

A Brief History of Time Ass?

Stephen Hawking, world renowned cosmologist, and theoretical physicist, has apparently been studying some new heavenly bodies these days.

As reported by Radar Online, the author of A Brief History of Time (which stayed on the British Sunday Times best-seller list for a record-breaking 237 weeks) who suffers from a debilitating condition related to Lou Gehrig's Disease, has become a regular visitor of Freedom Acres, a swingers club in Devore, California.
According to a source who has been a member of Freedom Acres swingers club for nearly half a decade, Hawking, 70, shows up to the club with a bevy of nurses and assistants and has naked woman grind on him.
"I have seen Stephen Hawking at the club more than a handful of times," the source revealed.
"He arrives with an entourage of nurses and assistants. Last time I saw him he was in the back 'play area' laying on a bed fully clothed with two naked women gyrating all over him."
The source notes that Hawki…

I want to dance!

But I am shy . . .

It reminds me of a quote that's very near and dear to me:
“Dance like there's nobody watching,


Love like you'll never be hurt.


Sing like there's nobody listening,


And live like it's heaven on earth.”

slave assignment 2/27/2012 - (keeping her quiet pt. 5)

My darling slave/wife,

As a way to demonstrate not only your sewing skills, but also to illustrate my ongoing series of posts about gags in BDSM, and ultimately to add to our toybag, I'm assigning to you the creation of a number of different fabric gags with a matching blindfold and restraints.

I'd like for you to fashion the following:
Wiffle gag  Cleave gag  OTM (over-the mouth) gag  OTN (over the nose) or Bandit's gag  Blindfold  Wrist restraints  I've also like to have a simple fabric hood, essentially a pretty sack for placing over your head when it pleasea me. This final request can be considered an extra credit project.

I'll take you shopping for any necessary materials before the end of this upcoming week.

With love, passion, desire, & dominance,
Michael

You're no buddy, your're no friend, and you sure as hell ain't my pal! ~ PayPal's Big Problem

PayPal would ban works by Anaïs Nin, Vladimir Nabokov, Henry Miller, Marquis de Sade and books like Caligula, The Sookie Stackhouse Novels (True Blood), The Story of O, Venus in Furs, Lolita…

Suddenly, PayPal has become the 800 pound gorilla in the room . . .

You are familiar with PayPal aren't you?

Almost certainly you've used the ubiquitous money transfer service called PayPal to make an online purchase, or donation?

Well, if you believe in freedom of speech / expression, or if you enjoy erotica, you may wish to reconsider doing business with PayPal in light of their most recent announcement.

Here's how I learned about this story, from Violet Blue:
On Saturday February 18, PayPal began threatening indie book publishers and distributors with immediate deactivation of the businesses’ accounts if they did not remove books containing certain sexual themes - namely, specific sexual fantasies that PayPal does not approve of.

PayPal told indie e-book publish…

Wiffle Gags (keeping her quiet pt. 4)

Simple and Safe ~ Wiffle Gags
Today's installment on the topic of Wiffle Gags is just a single part of an ongoing multi-post series about the use of gags in BDSM.  Other postings in the series (so far) include: Keeping Her Quiet (pt. 1) - Duct Tape GagsKeeping Her Quiet (pt. 2) - Introduction to GagsKeeping Her Quiet (pt. 3) - Variations on a GagKeeping Her Quiet (pt. 4) - Wiffle GagKeeping Her Quiet (pt. 5) - Serafina's AssignmentKeeping Her Quiet (pt. 6) - Hand GagKeeping Her Quiet (pt. 7) - Drooling!Keeping Her Quiet (pt 8) - Gag Maker Extraordinaire Once again, I'd like to remind readers that the title of the series, Keeping Her Quiet, is a simple reflection of my own experiences as a dominant.  I'm a 48 year old male in an ongoing 24/7 M/s relationship with my slave/wife Serafina.  Prior to Serafina, I was in a 18 year long polyamorous D/s relationship/marriage with a woman I called Blissful Torment.  While married to Ms Torment, I also had a decade long D/s relation…

And, it always seems that the deeper I delve into any particular style of BDSM/fetish play, the more I will discover the myriad of endless va…

Introduction to Gags in BDSM (keeping her quiet - pt. 2)

After bondage and blindfolds, gags are one of the most common elements found in erotic BDSM images.  With that in mind, I'd like to welcome you, my dear reader, to the 2nd installment of keeping her quiet, a series of posts detailing gags as they are used in BDSM.  The first installment was all about duct tape gags, but, as the title indicates, today's post won't focus on any specific type of gag.  Instead, it's intended to be a general introduction to gags as they are used in BDSM.

I'd also like to immediately note that the title "keeping her quiet" is not intended to be chauvinistic or sexist in any way, instead it simply reflects my personal sexual orientation. I am a 48 year old man involved in a Master/slave relationship, married to my slave/wife Serafina.  My choice of a female pronoun is not intended to imply that female submissives, nor women in general, should be gagged or stifled from expressing themselves.  This is about the use of gags for BDS…

Duct Tape Gags (keeping her quiet pt. 1)

An essential part of any abduction or damsel in distress scenario, nothing screams enforced submission better than the image of a submissive who has been bound and gagged.  Welcome to the first installment of "keeping her quiet", an ongoing discussion about gags and gagging in BDSM.

I'd first like to note, for you my dear reader, that the title "keeping her quiet" is not intended to be sexist in any way.  Please understand that any observations or advice I give are almost always equally applicable to gags used upon a male submissive.  My choice of a female pronoun is not intended to imply that female submissives, nor women in general, should be gagged or stifled from expressing themselves.  This is about the use of gags for BDSM scenes, not life in general.

The articles on gags are intended to be pansexual.  My original working title for this series of postings was actually "keeping them quiet".  While that's a more politically correct title, and…

A Wink and a Smile, the art of Burlesque dancing. Movie review

A Wink and a Smile is a 2008 documentary about the art of Burlesque dancing by filmmaker Diedre Allen Timmons. Centering the film on Miss Indigo Blue's "Burlesque 101 Class" at the Academy of Burlesque in Seattle, Timmons follows a class of ten women of all ages and sizes as they progress through the six-week class and learn about themselves while practicing striptease and burlesque, their final dissertation being a group performance at a local club.

I have long been enchanted with belly dancing and love the eccentric and elaborate costuming, so it should not be a surprise to see many similarities and thus A Wink and a Smile held me spellbound and wishing I could learn such an art with Indigo Blue herself.  I am also a flirt-addict internally, but too shy to ever allow it to show.  Ironically I do love the stage, having been a musician. I can dream though . . .

Here's the film's trailer so you can get a taste for yourself . . .
