What it Means to "Ground" Your Energy

Jun 30, 2014
In OM, before any genital contact, we firmly massage her thighs. In the last two minutes of stroking we do slower, firmer, “downstrokes.” After the stroking, we cup her pussy with both palms and apply firm pressure to push the blood back into her body. All three of these actions are referred …

Emojis, Texting, and Intention Behind Communication

Jun 27, 2014
I wasn’t able to talk to humans. At least not directly. In middle school I would get so anxiously silent around other kids that it was questioned whether or not I understood English. So halfway through sixth grade I was elated when AOL Instant Messenger was introduced to me. Hiding behind my …

How A Witch Falls in Love

Jun 25, 2014
Falling in love is marked by a deep shame for me. The entire process feels like I’m naked in a circle of people who are judging me and waiting for me to fail so they can chuck vegetables at me or something.

A Realized Desire is a Doorway

Jun 16, 2014
I love the feeling of accomplishment. I am the master of to-do lists and get immense satisfaction in checking each item off. One by one. Check. With all the things that needed doing (important things!) I didn’t have time for my desires. So for the majority of my life, I dismissed them, suppressed …

Addiction and the Unknown

Jun 12, 2014
I've never considered myself to be an addict of any sort. I spent a lot of time exposed to hard drugs and it never became a habit. I had girlfriend who was addicted to drugs and who'd meet drug dealers all over the city at ungodly hours and I'd think "Gosh, I can't believe she goes to such …

Expand Your Memory with Sensation

Jun 10, 2014
It's 2012. The 50 Shades of Grey craze is still in full steam. A friend of mine who works for a publishing partner and passes along the message that the erotica genre is so hot that any half-literate person who can string enough naughty sentences to make an erotica novel would get published. I …
