Tidbits; Life In The Sex Shop Comes In All Ages

SEXY-OLDER-COUPLE

Life at the sex shop isn’t always about the young, beautiful, and physically fit venturing through the doors for the latest and greatest of sex toys on the market. It’s a variety of folks that come from all walks of life, of all backgrounds, cultural beliefs, religions, anything and everything, you name it, we see it. I realized long ago working as a sex educator and at the sex shop, that sex doesn’t stop as a person ages, let alone when a person loses a loved one. In particular someone who has been with an individual all their loving adult life. (more…)

Tidbits; A Little Raunch Please!

Messing up the sheets with passionate, romantic sex is always on the table. Everyone of all sexes loves to be wined, dined, and romanced as enticement for sexual activity. Lit candles, flowers, chocolates, gifts, generally lay the ground work for the type of sex a person is about to have, romantic, loving sex. Sex that is definitely with it’s merit, because sex of any kind, at anytime, is always good, and as we all know good for many reasons. However, what if a little raunch is what you’re wanting? How do you get it, ask for it, and what’s it that you’re hoping for or wanting?

How does the cute brunette that loved to be passionately kissed while in the missionary position, go to doggy style being pummelled at the speed of light with her hair held like the reigns of a thoroughbred in a dead heat for winning the Brown Derby? The sexual practices indulged as youth were for the most part a serious learning curve, an educational journey that got us to the types of play we enjoy as determined adults. What was once loved and cherished as the sometimes awkward sexual activities for most in their youth, is not the case anymore. (more…)

Tidbits; Nudity For Art’s Sake, An Informal Adventure

I’ve done a lot of things in my life, all because I wanted to!

My choice of schooling, occupations, travel, they way I look and dress, surgeries, cosmetic procedures, basically everything, to be, me. However along the way a few things I found challenging aside from my honesty, were my early days of nude modelling. No I am not talking sex related or other, but for art’s sake, things like photography, life drawing , sculpture class, and character design for video games.

Coming back from SRS in England didn’t mean that I was ready to simply dive right in. It took time, a lot of time, and for those that know me, it was easier to hide behind the fetish clothes and slink out into the night of the local club scene all sexed up. (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…)

Tidbits; Gynaecology 101, The Art of the Tasteful Presentation

Playboy 1953

When Playboy first hit the stands in 1953 with Marilyn Monroe as it’s cover star, it was deemed as racy, sexist, in poor taste, and an instant hit! Inside were not only ads, opinions, and articles, but photo spreads. Beautiful, art directed productions in vivid colour, exquisitely set decked, perfect hair and make-up, and tastefully presented. Such was the style of the day in all “men’s” magazines, art, photography, and pretty much all depictions of female nudity and sensuality.

Pin-ups were all over the place, and long before Playboy, in the form of artist renderings and photos created mostly for the troops abroad fighting for our rights and freedoms. Renderings that gave most of these men a glimmer of hope for their triumphant return to their home country and for what life would hold for pin-up1them afterwards. Presentations (more…)
