No-O-vember

O-ctober has been over for about a week and No-O-vember is well underway. I had promised updates on this and only because of that promise I will give one today. To be honest, this is not working in the way we had hoped......at least not yet. 


By the end of October I had reached a sort of 'that's enough' level of orgasm saturation, but it wasn't a hardship to induce the last few. And now, one week into a month of denial, I had expected a more immediate reaction to the sudden shift from one extreme to the other, but so far that hasn't happened. Instead, I am back to just not caring much. My stress levels are off the charts for things I can't seem to escape. 

Last night is a great example. Rosa was trying to 'get in the mood' for her own satisfaction and I canceled some plans so we would have time together. I even made a nice dinner and took care of the dishes so she wouldn't have to. Then we sort of retired to our bedroom accompanied by drinks. (I made her a special cocktail she likes as well). 

Then we sort of just tried to relax and talk. But soon the conversation drifted from some friend's issues to politics and we both ended up stressed. We didn't even argue with each other, because we sort of have similar views, but just going over everything going on.....from the election, to Sessions' ominous dismissal.....ruined us. Rosa even joked, "I swear we are the only people who care about this stuff....even though we personally would probably be hardly affected....... and the people who it would probably affect negatively the most are probably dancing and having fun while we're laying here all stressed out."

She was right. We finished our drinks and she fell asleep before we did anything sexual. And me? I was disappointed in a 'lost opportunity' sort of way.....but not in any real personally disappointed way. Like I said, sex just doesn't seem to matter to me right now. (Even intentionally NOT having it.)

I am currently reconsidering a lot of things and wondering if a new goal of pure, hedonistic selfishness is in order? It seems to work for others.

  1. It is true that politics has gotten just totally overwhelming in terms of the mental energy it consumes. I was always kind of a political junkie, but there is no doubt the amount of time I spend reading politically-oriented stuff skyrocketed after the election and has remained high ever since.

    Sessions' dismissal is ominous in terms of what it means for the Russia probe, but he really did need to be gone. This is a guy who couldn't get confirmed to a federal judge position because of his past racist statements. He was trying everything in his power to resist liberalizing marijuana laws. He was actively opposing prison and sentencing reform. This is a guy who never, ever should have been given power over other people's lives, and I have no problem saying "good riddance" regardless of the reason for getting rid of him

    1. All true.

      But in my current frame of mind maybe I'd say, "good riddance. He never called to see how I was doing or brought beer over. He never offered to help with anything actually or even just socialize and cheer me up. He never did anything to benefit me personally, so fuck him."

  2. >Hi KD,
    Down here we just love American politics; it looks to an outsider as an enormous joke. But I am also glad that we don't have to live through it. But then again we also treat our own politicians as wonderful stand up comedians and we work very hard to ensure that they can do little real harm.
    I hope things vastly improve on the home front; just remember to put one foot in front of the other and we will all get there in the end (where ever "there" is that we are aiming for)

    1. Thanks for the well-wishes. I'm sure I'll be fine once I regain some sort of balance. There are a lot of really annoying specifics that I never went into detail on.

  3. Maybe you should try it the other way round i.e. month of denial followed by month of daily Os?

    1. Well I guess that was kind of what September going into October was. This could still work. In all honesty for someone used to denial, a week of no o's......especially a stressful one......is not a significant hardship.

  4. Well at least I got a good chuckle out of your last line.
    Totally agree with everything else you have said in this and the prior post.

    1. Since its inception in 2015, "Collected Submissions" has always, and without apology, been about a combination of general kink, humor, socio-political discussion, personal anecdotes, and even pictures of my garden and various projects and parties I have chosen to share. The "we" HERE know this and have no issue with it. If you prefer straight-up kink with nothing else added, there are plenty of blogs out there you can visit. You are also welcome here.....but please don't tell me what my content should be. I frankly don't care what the average kink-seeker wants to see. Collected Submissions was never intended for anything average.

      And while the opinion/asshole platitude has been around a long time, it is merely quaint and cute yet totally illogical. There are plenty of opinions (and even assholes) that don't stink. Rosa's butthole smells delicious in fact, and my opinions? Well, they smell like roses!

  7. Trump is discussed daily in our home and at work the man enjoys inciting conversations. So he tweets daily to be talked about and his rederic affects my household

    1. We are not alone in this. Therapists have actually reported an increase in patients' anxiety stemming from daily stress over Trump. I seriously wondered if some people voted with less regard to policy and more towards making the anxiety stop.
