I'm less than 24 hours away from starting a week's holidays and I really need that break. It has been a tough six weeks and I'm not in the greatest of shape. Thanks to several motor vehicle accidents in my distant past, my neck and shoulders can be quite cantankerous at times and are acting up big time this week. My resilience is wearing thin as well. I'm not nearly as polished as I like to be. Once my bullsh*t quotient is used up, I have a heck of time managing my own emotions. Roll a few hot flashes in there and things can get pretty ugly. As I type this, I've medicated myself and have one of those hot bags wrapped around my aching neck. I couldn't swing a flogger worth sh*t this evening let alone a single tail. What does a wannbe dominatrix to do when her body prevents her from exercising her kink directly?
Option #1 - Rewatch some of my favorite kinky home movies! Pet and I have filmed a few play sessions over the past year. I enjoy watching these and find them emotionally satisfying even long after the fact.
Option #2 - Read an erotic romance - Those of you who have been following my blog will already know that I have a soft spot for erotic romance with BDSM or menage elements. One of my favorite places to look for new material is Ellora's Cave http://www.jasminejade.com/
Option #3 - Write some erotica - This is a chance for me to indulge in a little fantasy-building and creative writing all at once.
Option #4 - Spend some time on Tumblr - While only a couple of the blogs I follow are BDSM focused, some of the folks I follow regularly post or repost some great stuff. One of the blogs I follow is called "Romantic Porn". You can find it at http://porn4ladies.tumblr.com/ Another called Fetishmind has some interesting posts too. http://fetishmind.tumblr.com/
Option #5 - Check out some of my favorite vendors on Etsy and search for my dream dominatrix outfit. If you like steampunk, you have to check out Harlots and Angels http://www.etsy.com/listing/99356670/23-waist-steampunk-oxblood-explorer That link will take you to a recent listing and you can find their store from there. DeadlyCurvesCorsets also has some great mechandise especially if you've admired Selene's outfit in the Underworld series. Check this out - http://www.etsy.com/listing/88170665/made-to-order-handmade-steel-boned
Option #6 - Do some browsing on eBay. I like to do keyword searches and see what comes up. Last night I gave "dominatrix" a whirl.
Anyway, the meds I took are starting to work and I soon won't be able to manage the keyboard, so I shall take my leave. Tomorrow I'll tell you what I'm planning for this weekend!
