Is it one spice in your cabinet of flavors? Is it ‘who you are’? Is it an unfulfilled desire whose frustrating absence leads to obsession?
The reason I ask these questions is to point out why “Collected Submissions” often includes non-sexual topics. You see, for me, ‘kink’ is who I am and I am pretty much ‘out there’ to family and friends. As such I wanted to have a blog that was designed to be a place where people who identify as “kinky”could come and talk like adults and not have to self-censor their more non-vanilla tastes. The idea was a fellow lifestyler might make a comment that dealt with some social issue and include a reference to their lifestyle practices as example, without having to worry that ‘no one would understand’. So the idea was that we could certainly share experiences and advice that directly relate to the lifestyle we enjoy, but that we could also talk about other things with the understanding that we were doing so in a kink-friendly environment. It would be a blog/microcosm of life itself; titillating stories and images one day, personal anecdote another, an exploration of an adult theme on yet another, and maybe end the week with a rant over the state of society or political arena.
The very title “Collected Submissions” contained the tagline: “kinky stuff for thinking deviants”. The key word there being “thinking”. This was never meant to be a destination blog for guys looking to jerk off. There are plenty of other places for that. Nor was it meant to be 100% kink …...mainly because who among us as people IS 100% kink every minute of every day? How boring would such a life be?
The deck, arbor, pond, light, path, and garden that wouldn't be if all I did was recover from one spanking while awaiting the next. But which is not to say that I haven't been out in this garden with my hot, sore cheeks poking out of my denim chaps! It's all a balance. And if I'm going to share the story of the spanking one day......I may share what was currently in bloom on another.
I am who I am. I live a kinky lifestyle. But I also do projects and ponder other issues besides what spanking implement hurts the most. And this blog hopefully does…...and will continue to…...reflect that. ( Even if others might prefer otherwise.)
