{NSFW} 17. Setting the record straight

Nearly a year ago I began working through a blog challenge I found online entitled 30 Days of Kink. It was a  blog challenge that went uncompleted, something that has always annoyed me.

Unsurprisingly, this blog challenge is a little more ‘adult’ than some of the other blog challenges I partake of on this blog.

After the whining password-protected dirge I posted a couple of days ago (which has since been deleted) I’ve decided to pick up the dropped gauntlet and finish off this challenge; partly because I’m tired of starting challenges that I never finish, and partly because I think it would do me good to write about this subject a little more given my current anxieties surrounding it.

So, without further ado, let’s kick off with day seventeen of the 30 Days of Kink challenge: what misconceptions about kinky people would you most like to clear up?

Satyricon USA: A Journey Across the New Sexual Frontier
by Eurydice

Satyricon (Eurydice)

“Satyricon USA is a groundbreaking tour of America’s sexual landscape. Like her model from the ancient world, Petronius, Eurydice is a firsthand witness to the chaos of human sexuality, now more kinky, confused, and transgressive than ever before. A unique blend of reportage, memoir, extensive research, and incisive analysis, Satyricon USA is a compelling portrait of a nation in the midst of redefining its sexual life.”

{NSFW} 13. Desires and needs

Back in November 2012 I began working through a blog challenge titled 30 Days of Kink. It was a challenge that looked at the more ‘deviant’ side of my personality; the random kinks and fetishes that drive my sexually creative and passionate mind. For numerous reasons I wasn’t able to complete all the posts, so will, from time to time, work through the remaining prompts of this most confrontational and revealing of blog challenges. Re-starting today with…

Day 13: Explain as best you can what the appeal of kink/BDSM is to you?
Why are you drawn to what you’re drawn to?
