And yes, communicating about kink feels like a no-brainer. How else will you both make sure that everything is safe and consensual?
By Hella Rude Try to get used to wearing the plug and allow yourself to forget about it. Pop it in, stick on a movie and veg out. Just relax and do nothing at all.

By Zak Jane Keir: Oh holy shit, my feet! Just have to start by saying that, because it’s the thought running most regularly through my head today. A kind friend passed on a pair of beautiful 40-hole black Doc Martens to me as they were, apparently surplus to her requirements. She said they had hardly been worn, and she was absolutely right.
