Drama King

I'm feeling rather blue and down today.  For the last few days everything has been a struggle.

When everything is a struggle for me, it usually means one of  means one of a few different things . . .

  1. It really is just a rough patch of time - life's like that, as some days are easier than others, and there are  (of course) occasions where a few bad days string together randomly
  2. I was feeling so very good about the DungeonBed purchase, as well as the visit to IML, that a little bit of rebound was almost inevitable.  
  3. I'm exhausted and sore - I suffer from some chronic arthritic conditions as well as Fibromyalgia.  Laying a new floor and painting, bringing home our dungeon bed, and assembling our dungeon bed, were all very strenuous activities which have caused significant increases in my arthritic pain.  When I hurt I can't sleep, and when I can't sleep it makes me hurt even more.  It's a viscous cycle that makes me feel a bit like I'm circling a drain, getting sucked deeper and deeper towards oblivion.
  4. I'm depressed - I've never been to the "so depressed I can't get out of bed" state, but I've been close once or twice in my life.  I thought those episodes were behind me now that I have quit working in politics, not to mention having a wife who's truly supportive of my interests - a first for me!  But, I also have to recognize that the sense of  "circling a drain, getting sucked deeper and deeper towards oblivion" isn't just a phenomena related to pain and lack of sleep, it's also a sign I might be circling into a cycle of depression.
  5. It's just a sign of the times.  The world really is going to hell in a fucking hand-basket.  
Like the commercials say, "depression hurts", so it's my experience that not only do #3 and #4 go together like a fist inside a glove, they also pack a mean nasty punch.  

To a certain extent, I find myself agreeing with #5, the world is pretty fucked up, and I find myself feeling a bit like a Jim Morrison lyric, "the future's uncertain and the end is always near . . . "  Which brings me to the solution.  I need to take my slave in hand, and play with her hard, every day of our upcoming three day weekend.  

It answer's #1, as there's nothing better to get over a rough patch of time than some rough sex!  It takes care of the second possibility as well, as there's nothing there that some good use of our new bed won't completely resolve.  

Numbers #3 and #4 are also resolved by some extended attention to my slave/wife, as the endorphins released by a great BDSM session are a sure cure for both pain and the blues. Thinking about #5, I return in the same vein to my youthful nihilistic leanings, and will ape the aforementioned dead rock star in saying . . . 

"I don't know what's gonna happen man, but I wanna have my kicks before the whole shithouse goes up in flames."

SOUNDTRACK - American Night / Roadhouse Blues by The Doors

SPECIAL BONUS - for anyone who remembers the early 1980's Rolling Stone magazine cover that read, "JIM MORRISON - He's Hot, He's Sexy, He's Dead!!!"


  1. Sir,

    So very sorry your hurting and really hope you find some relief soon!


    1. thank you very much my dear mouse!

      big hugs,

  2. Sorry to hear you're down. From what we've seen of depression up close, it can be crippling. We recognize the validity of the various possible reasons for your depression, and we feel for you. We hope that the feelings pass with time. For whatever it's worth, you're not the only person with fears and misgivings about the world these days.

    Bonus points for the Roadhouse Blues lyric. :)

    1. Thank you for your kind support and compassion!

      I feel better this evening than I did this morning . . . which is REALLY strange because it's been a heck of a tough day . . .

  3. Hope your three day D/s weekend cures the blues and pain. Don't know if you have access to a pool, swimming and stretching in the water has done wonders for the arthritis in my knees...


    1. Swimming is great for arthritic joints - you've got that right for sure. Thanks for the comment!

    2. You do have access to a pool, although it's not quite big enough for laps. It's good for throwing plastic balls at people's faces though!

  4. I only know that I'll be ready and waiting! Let the games begin!

  5. Heartfelt wishes for all things torridly sweet for you and your Serafina.

    1. Thank you Renee&#39! and thank you for stopping by. Do you have a site of your own? we love visiting other people's blogs.

    2. It's renee from slave interrupted :). I just hadnt signed in with my google account and also it added odd things when I tried to put the accent mark behind my name.

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…
