All that I am, all that I ever was…

I am more than my mental health. I am more than my homelessness. I am more than any one aspect of me. I am Addy. And this is…

{NSFW} 20. Confidence and Kink

This is the twentieth day of the 30 Days of Kink Challenge, as such it contains adult (and spankolicious) content.

~ Talk about something within kink/bdsm that you’re curious about/don’t understand ~

Because it is taking me so long to complete this challenge (it began in November 2012!) I have decided to freewrite the remainder of the prompts. As such, please excuse any spelling and/or grammatical mistakes that may occur for they are all part and parcel of this form of writing.

{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?

Stacking in Rivertown
By Barbara Bell

Stacking in Rivertown (Barbara Bell)

“An intricately emotional and erotic debut and a haunting foray into the deepest recesses of a sexual underworld, ‘Stacking in Rivertown’ – a novel of love, pain, and redemption – marks the auspicious debut of a refreshingly bold new writer. Barbara Bell plunges readers deep inside the mind of a woman struggling to survive and rebuild her life despite a harrowing past.”


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.”


So, what’s everyone else reading at the moment?
Go on, give us a tease…

{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?
