July thoughts

So my month of voluntary dares is officially over and I’m not quite sure how I feel about it all. On one hand I definitely enjoyed having my most loyal readers getting a chance to toss an idea my way and then doing my best to oblige. And so in that regard, I would have to say those specific interactions with those of you who participated were very positive. So….thanks!

I was going to do a bit of a mini-review of each one but decided to just look at the whole month as an experimental adventure and not get too caught up in specifics.  I’m also not sure if I’m going to do another one of these months next year, but that is a long way off and I may end up changing my mind several times before next July arrives.

One aspect of “Jackass July” that didn’t surprise me was the extreme ratio of female to male contributors. I sort of guessed that a female would be more willing to dare a male to do something than another male. And that was fine. Makes total sense. But on the other hand, I thought the dares in conjunction with the posts on embarrassment in general would have prompted more discussion or personal revelation on the issue of embarrassment from both genders, and that didn’t really happen. I guess people are more reluctant to discuss the issue than I imagined.





Another thing that I didn’t expect was dealing with feelings not just centered on my own sense of embarrassment over some of the images, but a kind of worry that perhaps some were too “out there” for the blog. But since none of the posts got any critical comments to that effect, I guess it wasn’t as big a deal as I thought it might be.

Either way, it’s not like this is going to be a continuing feature, and I will soon be back to posting the usual array of topics that I have tackled in the past, so if anyone WAS turned off by anything, they won’t have to worry going forward.

As for my personal 'goal’ in trying to elicit a certain response in myself? That too was a mixed bag, with some dares being more fun than embarrassing and others being more challenging than embarrassing. But that too makes sense. Anyway, besides learning a few things, I definitely enjoyed the run…………………. and I hope you all did too. 

Thanks again to all who contributed and special thanks to my Monster, Ana, for acting as referee for the event as well as my camera person for the video. ( And now back to our regularly scheduled program.)

  1. Thank you again for making my 57th Birthday memorable. I must say that I had an amazing day, including cake and a candle, and you provided the ice cream!

    Remember that if you need to decompress, I will make myself available to you.

    1. I am truly glad you enjoyed the images and glad your birthday was memorable on many levels.

      "Decompress". Interesting. I wonder if that's what my current mood is about? Maybe.

    2. Sometimes we just need to let out all those unresolved feelings

  2. I enjoyed following along with the dates although with few comments. Thought it was daring of you to do so. I had no comparative base to discuss most of your dates but one. Had hoped we could compare notes on my date but it was not to be. ;<)

    1. Thanks, Joe. and yeah, too bad about your dare, but given the other people it necessitated involving, it just was not going to happen. However, if you have had such an experience in the past and would like some discussion for comparison, why not send me an account via email and I could always use it as a "Guest Post" to prompt some interaction?

  4. It occurred to me that maybe the reason you didn't quite get the internal reaction you hoped for is that you've been kinky for so long that you're just desensitized to most of it now. I kind of feel that way about DD sometimes -- it used to be this hugely compelling, dramatic thing for me, and now it's just kind of the background in which I live. Here is a dare for both of us -- a week without kink or porn of any kind! Let's see what kind of internal reaction we have at the end of that process!

    1. Interesting theory but while it's true that I've been doing this for a while, lately it seems that not much is going on here at home due to a lot of circumstances. And I think it was more of a 'well if I can't play there, maybe I can find someone to harmlessly play with here'.

      Your challenge is interesting as well, but again, due to me feeling a need to use anything I can get my hands on for some adult kicks, going without anything for a week would just have me going on for hours on how to use a rubber "O" ring to secure a 'rib snake' plastic worm to a wacky rig in order to catch more bass. (I'm not sure how that would go over on the blog. LOL)

      (BTW.....seriously considering a post on CDD)

    2. what was / is embaressing for me has not changed over the years of kink between my wife amd i / the ladies that kmow about us / me. its still a huge turn on for me to be teased about to plan for and then to actually do something embaressing. we do the table scraps thing. i prep cook and serve. i know all im getting us whatever is left over. i blush deeply if im told this morsel will be left for me to savor. we do my original suggestion of a baby meal. the act of putting on the plastic bib gets me going in a mental and physical way
