Sexy This Week; Bed Hair

It is the accessory that adorns our heads, and for those of us that have it, we’ve spent, by the times our lives on this plane have fizzled out, thousands of dollars washing, conditioning, cutting, chemically treating, and styling it. Our hair. The crowning glory for many, century after century the first thing noticed on a person before a wardrobe, and hygiene. Shiny, lustrous, healthy hair, styled to perfection always garners the attention of the passing admirer, but a head of hair tousled to extremes fresh from a bedroom romp alway gets the double take and that’s what’s sexy this week.

Hair that begins as a work of art from the ritual of a 15 to 20 minute prep, ready for the world reveal, a part of daily life, quickly settles as the elements of the day permeate every strand weighing it down, dulling it’s sheen. Hair that with a quick freshen, is ready for an evening of play, an evening on the town, some debbie harrywining, dining, and dancing, or just a business meeting. (more…)

Tidbits; SeXXXting

ass sexxxting

Now that cell phones are, for the most part, a worldwide device, communication has gotten just that much easier. In the early days of the phone there was a combination of letters and numbers used to identify where your call was to be directed after calling in to an operator. The movie, Butterfield 8, with Elizabeth Taylor exemplified that ever so perfectly, a film I highly recommend!

Beyond all that dialling, pressing buttons with numbers on them is texting. The not so new method of communication. Texting, the pressing of buttons with letters on them, we all know what it is, and do it religiously. Although first designed to be used for another reason, it morphed into a form of communication the inventors never intended to be used the way it is today, for SEXXXTING! (my spelling and I am sticking to it!!) What older folk called phone sex, only sexxxting leaves little to the imagination. (more…)

ANECDOTES, SEX | JUNE 18, 2014 BY VELVET STEELE

Slowly the heat begins to rise from your toes up. You feel it take hold of your knees making you weak, ache, unable to get up as goose bumps begin to form across your back, up your spine, and through your shoulder blades as it continues up the back of your neck like the subtle bites you gave your last partner. Soft nips that produced squeals and moans of delight. The tingles are relentless as they push forward; up and over your scalp making hair stand on end, and a reddened face burn white-hot. The feeling moves onward and down your chest, making lazy nipples stand at (more…)

Sexy This Week; Curves

velvetsteele-curves

Models of the current fashion runways are younger, paler, harbour a vacant look with eyes that reveal little to no soul, and they are THIN! Unnervingly thin and in sharp contrast to the models that graced the pages of the fashion magazines prior to the mid sixties. It wasn’t an overnight thing but a gradual change that folks have noticed and protested against, only to fall on the deaf ears of fashion’s dictatorial elite.

Board like figures void of any shape and curves do not illicit the desires to touch, hold, and caress, but rather shun and give the urge to buy the girl a box of donuts. Curvy, shapely, healthy bodies do command the touch reflex, and if not to touch, then to look, look long and hard, because curves are what’s sexy this week. (more…)

The Great Outdoors

Not to long ago I found myself answering a question that was asked of me after a shift at the lounge I used to work at. Playing the game, “question and answer”  similar to the game “truth or dare” I was asked if I had ever had sex outdoors? “No!”, was my quick answer producing gasps of shock and amazement. NO! I had never ventured into the local shubbery (more…)

Tidbits; Masturbation Antics

velvetsteele_office_bitch

Like most human beings I know, I am horny a lot, yearly, daily, hourly…….ok pretty much all the time, and NEED to rub one out daily or I get a wee bit cranky to say the least! Just as everyone else does, I have my routine when getting down to business for a little alone time and trust me it doesn’t include anyone else in the picture except the visuals supplied by my laptop. My alone time is just that, alone time that I cherish for a little, and usually a lot of stress relief. At this point I am focused on me, myself, and I, and I’m not saying I’m selfish here, to the contrary, I’m an enthusiastic lover, always eager to pull my own weight, but one thing we can all agree on is the necessary quality of uninterrupted alone time. There’s nothing like it!

At any rate there I was itching to flick the bean, armed with my trusty laptop, I seated myself at the island of my kitchen ever so precise to angle my barstool, laptop, lube and legs in place. With one foot up on the counter and the other over on the matching stool, (more…)

Tidbits; Sextoy Ergonomics

Ergonomic; (especially of workplace design) intended to provide optimum comfort and to avoid stress or injury.

Ok so for all you aficionados of sextoys, ergonomic is a term I am sure you’ve heard enough times as they try to shove it down our throats or better yet up our asses all in an attempt to sell more of the latest and “greatest” new designs from manufacturers and designers the world over.  Big surprise, but our bodies are not the geometric shapes structured the way a life drawing class would have you believe, but an organic body with enough twists and turns to leave a person dizzy. The realistic also know that human beings have orifices that are NOT as deep or as wide as the grand Canyon, although I know a lot who are certainly willing and in some cases able to handle the larger than life sizes.

The Crotch Watch with Video to Prove it!! LOL

 

 

 

You know what I am talking about: the coy glances to the crotches of a man that has caught your eye, quick darting glances as often as a person blinks throughout the day. Its human nature and for those of us that find ourselves in a state of perpetual heat, these are the actions that happen. For most men, low cut waist lines that dip to extremes like the blouses of fashionably dressed women, is just not an option. Their package is their pride and joy, and putting the goods on display through pants that caress the bulges, carrying the meat and potatoes, housing the family jewels, is a learned art that takes time to develop. You have to know what fashion labels to wear with finesse, to wet that appetite of the viewer, a table to be set for a feast soon to be had.

Time for some fun! Who doesn’t like sex? Given how busy we are these days having a little bell may do the job for letting people know you are in the mood.
