Tidbits: Comfortable In My Own Skin

velvet-steele-topless-by-rick-legal-censored

Am I comfortable in my own skin?

Recently I was asked if I thought I shared to much of myself through all this social media we are all glued at our finger tips to. My answer was a quick and abrupt NO!

Let me tell you why If you’re at all interested in reading to find out.

For the most part I would say that 80% of my journey up until this point has been traversed alone. A road that is sometimes straight and narrow, wide and winding, but for the most part, steep and treacherous. Challenges abound around every corner, out of sight, having left me with no tools or resources to face those challenges, except head on. I’ve learned a lot with this type of approach, but there really was no other way to deal with the challenges I did not see coming. I thought life for the most part would be easy, or at least somewhat along this road, and how wrong I was!

Wacky Wednesday: 7 Completely Insane Sex Toy Designs

7 Completely Insane Sex Toys 1

Like the rest of the world things just keep on getting more and more bizarre in the world of sextoys. I am not sure if it is boredom or just truly the thrill seekers wanting newer and “better” items to stick in their orifices, or put their dicks into. I do see a lot of wacky things, and well, have done a lot of wacky things. I am not here to judge, if I did, I wouldn’t be doing some of the things I do in my life, such as advocacy and activism.

However the folks at www.cracked.com have come up with a humorous article detailing a few items up for grabs through some of the site I myself shop at.

Have a look, and you be the judges, I’ve even linked the photos to the home site for my dirty fun pictures of these lovelies! You just may find yourself stumped, and as I like to say when lecturing,

Listen, learn, and maybe laugh a little. I do!

Tidbits: Coitus Automobilus

Coitus Automobilus 2

The sex appeal of the automobile has been known for a long time, especially by men. Automobiles designed by men, built for men, driven mostly by men, men. Women weren’t really in the equation except when the car was referred to as a “family car”, the vehicle of choice for growing families, which we know is and was serious advertising bullshit. It wasn’t until the Ford Motor Company finally clued in with the introduction of their pony car, the Mustang, introduced in 1964 as a car for women and heavily marketed with slick and sexy advertising campaigns. A car that boasted simplicity, yet stylish, subtly powerful, and adored by 1964 mustangmany, women that is in the start.

Car appeal has always had people of all sexes in it’s grip. From the moment we first sit in a car we are groomed for the day of privilege we somehow believe we are entitled to, the day we get our driver’s license. That day when we can hop behind the wheel of an automobile and drive our family, friends, selves, and lovers to destinations of our choosing.

Wacky Wednesday: AI and the Sex Doll

Artificial Intelligence is making waves and progressing in leaps and bounds. All you have to do is look at your cell phones and the auto correct function that those devices have, sometimes correcting into the wrong phrases. Ok so they are not so smart. but they make for some pretty funny stuff!

Computers, electronics, cars, all things electric are coming with sensors all over the place to make humanity safer, even programmable so we don’t have to do the work ourselves, for those lazy fucks out there. Now with the waters being tested with robots, actually for quite some time, with great examples by SONY, Toyota, and many other companies it won’t be long before we find ourselves talking back to humanoid looking automatons.

Sexy This Week: Accepting Compliments

Roses

I’ve never been good at accepting praise, and maybe because for a period of time I never truly believed in myself, but always in others. Something I am reluctant to admit, I still do! However from time to time I am gently, and sometimes not so gently reminded to take a compliment or accept the praise given to me by those close to me, and even those that have come across my path for a short time.

One thing I do know, is that I am not alone when it comes to brushing off a compliment, or hiding in the shadows when a little praise is passed my way. You know who I am talking about, YOU! There are many of you out there that do the same, and trust me when I say there have been many times when I told someone to shut up and take the compliment! Taking a compliment, that’s whats sexy this week!

Again I was reminded about the power of voice, and in particular mine, when I met up with an old friend from my earlier fetish days here Vancouver when I was hosting Body Perve’s Presentation of Fetish Night some 20 years ago. Yes, that’s right, 20 years ago!

The Vajankle masturbator.

So, yet again, it appears that folks will fuck just about anything with a hole that looks like a pussy and then again things that don’t look like a pussy. I’ve heard a lot of fun crazy shit that’s put a smile on my face and some that have elicited a good head shake, but I’m not here to judge!

If your a foot fetishist then maybe this one is for you! The folks at VICE have written quite an interesting little ditty on that one.
