The Art of BDSM

You might have noticed by now that I kind of like drawings and paintings of BDSM and bondage. It’s amazing how many of these exist, even if you exclude those done since the libertine 60’s! A bound and helpless figure, particularly when only scantily clothed, has appealed to the prurient interest in just about all generations past, and that interest has been memorialized by many artists. For a quick treat, I thought I’d share a few works of BDSM art for your viewing pleasure. This way we can look at hot pictures and yet tell ourselves that we’re actually being highbrow because it’s art!

Let’s start with Paul Gustave’s conception of Andromeda from Greek Mythology
A little Female Domination, circa 1930
Illustrations from pulp magazines of the 1940s and ’50s are a particularly rich vein to mine–witness this John Willie work.
And let’s close with this cartoon illustration, which is one of my favorites. They had ball gags even back in 1913.

See, it’s an art and history lesson all in one! Don’t you feel educated?

Enjoy yourself,

It’s the Little Things

You know, sometimes it’s the little things that make all the difference…

  • Asking your partner, “Are you comfortable?” before you apply the business end of the crop to her upturned bottom
  • Working that last inch of slack out of the corset laces before you tie them off
  • Making certain that the wrist cuffs match the ankle cuffs, because you wouldn’t want her not to match
  • Adding the word “please” to make an instruction sound a bit more polite: “Now open your legs, please, so that I can be certain you came out without your panties”
  • Thoughtfully brushing away a stray hair that has gotten into your partner’s mouth right before you come in it
  • Tightening the nipple clamps that final turn
  • Adding a smiley when you text your partner to tell her she’s earned a demerit
  • Reminding your partner that it’s her responsibility to count, and it’s not your fault if she’s lost track and you have to start over
  • Inserting the penis gag carefully so as not to smudge her lipstick
  • Trying to even out the spanks so that neither cheek is left feeling neglected
  • Using your finger to trace a heart shape in the semen you just left on her belly
  • Never for a minute doubting that she can always come one more time if you push just the right buttons
  • Holding her close and telling her how much you love her before you fall asleep

Enjoy yourself,

Top Ten Reasons Not to Post on Your Blog

  1. Work sucks!
  2. Wife is not in a good place right now.
  3. Too many vanilla social obligations.
  4. Honey-do list is longer than the honey-do-me list
  5. You are not in a good place, either!
  6. Did I mention that work sucks?
  7. Nasty cold virus insinuates itself into household
  8. Stomach virus–entirely separate from the cold virus mentioned above–enters the home on a perpendicular course, so that each member of the household has their own separate disease, right up to the day in which they swap
  9. Right after work stops sucking, it immediately starts to blow.

    And, of course, the top reason not to post on your blog…

  10. Zzzzzzz….

By My Math…

…this post is worth about five thousand words. And that’s good, because I’m afraid I have no time right now for writing! About all I can do tonight is share a few pictures that I came across in my virtual travels (plus a few snarky comments in the captions). For one reason or another, each caught my fancy. Hope you enjoy them!

I love the expression on her face. She does not look very pleased to be having her picture taken!

This is a particularly rewarding form of leash training

Perhaps this stockade will be my next DIY bondage project.

I have always wanted to host a dinner party where the guests had a blonde for the appetizer, a brunette for the main course, and a red head for dessert…

My bet? Well, I guess I’ll just have to put up my wife’s panties…

Enjoy yourself,

Happy New Year!

Just a quick note to wish all a happy New Year! I hope that the coming year is an excellent one for all. There are signs of both hope and fear all across the globe right now–let us keep our fingers crossed that hope prevails.

And in the meantime, how about if we proclaim 2013 as the year of kinky sex? Sounds like a good plan to me!

Joy and I each made resolutions to each other last night. Joy resolved to face up to her desires rather than hiding from them, to be more willing to try new things that intimidate her, and to make a greater effort to submit, even when she isn’t feeling like she wants to. My resolutions were to do a better job holding Joy accountable for transgressions, even small ones (always an issue for me) and to not only take charge more firmly, but to insist on submission when Joy pushes back. I thing our resolutions compliment each other, so hopefully we can provide mutual support.

How successful we are with these resolutions will likely be good fodder for a future post! In the meantime…

…Enjoy yourself,
