announcements: Guest Authors, Creative Commons, strictly non-commercial, etc.

Four brief announcements that may or may not mean a whole lot to most readers here, but yet are vitally important in the background to Serafina and I as we move forward here with the Spiritual BDSM blog.  The first two are matters I discussed with Serafina earlier in the week.  The third is a decision I made on my own this morning, but am quite sure she'll agree with when she arises, and the fourth is simply adding a title for a responsibility I'd already assigned to my slave/wife.
  1. We are in process of removing any affiliate links we had on this site.  It's not a difficult decision, we'd had one or two affiliate links up for 3 months and not earned a cent.  To be honest, neither one of us is comfortable "flogging the blog" (as we like to call it) for any kind of commercial purpose, we aren't the kind to ask our reader to use our links to shop.  We still will feature reviews and links to vendors we personally use (no changes there) but we're not going to be looking to make a red cent from links for sales.  Call it the Consumer Reports model for sex toy reviews or whatever you might like, it simply means no advertising or affiliate links here ever!
  2. We will also be featuring more frequent posts from friends who share a kinky lifestyle.  Serafina and I plan to continue posting just as frequently ourselves, and we'll still be in the background administering everything with this blog too.  With that said, we have a few wonderfully talented friends who's perspectives, reviews, thoughts and fantasies deserve to be shared here.  
  3. This is my decision alone, it hasn't yet been discussed with Serafina, who is still asleep.  Call it an executive decision by the Editor.  But, in light of the first two announcements, it's perfectly logical to post everything here at SpiritualBDSM.com under a Creative Commons License, rather than try to maintain any kind of traditional copyright.  We've blogged before on an unrelated topic, and that blog was Creative Commons.  SpiritualBDSM.com is also officially under a  Creative Commons License as well.
  4. I've also decided to bequeath a new title upon my lovely slave/wife and editorial assistant Serafina, who for the purposes of this blog will become Art Director.  Almost all of the original pictures featured here were taken by my slave/wife, who gets this title to go along with the fancy-pants new camera she got for Christmas.  If it's one of our pictures and Serafina's sweet bottom (or other parts) isn't in the shot, you can pretty well bet she was behind the lens.
I've always considered myself simply the blog's co-author, a role I shared along with my lovely slave-wife Serafina.  I suppose I'll need to be adding a second "title" to my responsibilities, as I'll now consider myself to also be this site's Editor.  Sounds impressive, eh?  It really just means that I'll coordinate the posting of articles here on the blog.   Hopefully I'll be coordinating at least a couple of regular contributors, and I'm always looking for interesting kinky material for guest posts.

Thanks,

Drooling!!! (keeping her quiet pt. 7)

Slippery When Wet - Gags & Drooling

Welcome to an ongoing discussion of gags and gagging in the world of BDSM.  Today, I'll be featuring an inevitable consequence of being gagged, as well as the fetish some have for this special aspect of keeping her quiet.

And, it should be said that today's post is a very slippery topic.  It could even be said that it's discussion occurs on a slippery slope, as folks tend to either love or hate the fact that gags can cause uncontrollable drooling.

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…
