By Hella Rude: Taking a great sexy selfie: In case of any doubt, please let me say it for the record: models don't ever look quite like their photos, and for good reason. What works well in the context of a photo just doesn't work in real life.
"A mouth gag makes the one playing the role of the submissive owned party feel even more controlled and vulnerable, they also stop much of the noise that the person may emit during a spanking or ‘sexy punishment’ session as well as making the gagged person look even more appealing and corruptible for the one in position of Dominance and control."
By Cheryl Kaye: I finally worked my way out of an abusive relationship, and swore off men for a while. However, that realisation got me thinking about how cautious I have always been about certain things, and how that is spilling over into this. I want all the sex but I want it to be safe too.
By Cara Sutra: The Black Friday phenomenon has well and truly got its feet under the table on this side of the pond. Although its origins are Stateside, we can’t resist a bargain here in good old Blighty, so Black Friday and Cyber Monday have been welcomed in with get-out-of-my-bloody-way arms.
By Cara Sutra: He looked up at me from where he knelt on the kitchen floor, a solitary tear running down his defeated face. That just caused my cunt to become wetter in beautifully cruel empathy. Finally, he’d completed the distasteful task. His expert tongue protruded, but not out of rudeness or as a plea for pussy. On the tip was a small, very shiny key.
By Cara Sutra: A few articles I have read recently about lesbian sex have ignited a bit of fire in me; for a start they tend to read like they were written by either men who get their lesbian sex facts from porn, or by bi-curious fantasists who write purely from the point of view of someone who cannot see outside the blinkers of a sex life involving a penis. Today I'm talking lesbian sex myths - the 10 biggest girl on girl sex myths that you'll probably recognise.
A recent article in The Guardian reported that trigger warnings have been requested on works of literature, by students in the US. Not children; young adults or adults who are of an age to study classical works of literature that have adult interest and themes. The books in question include such greats as The Great Gatsby (for misogyny and violence), Huck Finn (for racism), Things Fall Apart (for colonialism and religious persecution), Mrs. Dalloway (for suicide), Shakespeare (for pretty much everything). Now, Gove has reputedly axed To Kill a Mockingbird and Of Mice and Men from the UK's English Literature GCSE syllabus. Personally, I studied Macbeth, Richard the Third and A Streetcar Named Desire for my English Literature A-Level. Pretty much all of the violence. It has been commented that such classic books have topics which may upset or provoke an uncomfortable response.
By Cara Sutra: Gazing through the rain spattered window into the wet gloom this morning, it seems a cruel joke of nature that our summer officially started yesterday. Despite the evidence, thoughts are turning to a traditionally hot summer, with adverts for BBQs, barbecue food, garden furniture and the like reminding us of what we’re missing every time we turn on the TV.
I most often hear 'feisty' used in an insulting way by men about women. To describe a woman whose ability to voice their opinions, and strength and openness in various areas of their life, makes the man somehow feel threatened and insecure. In this event it often leads to the use of this term in derision, scorn and complete condescension. A way of trying to to 'take her down a peg or two'.
By Hella Rude Today a lady mentioned that she hates her inner labia. This statement always sends a pang to my heart because I feel that female anatomy is so misunderstood. It is not part of our culture to understand the intimate and intricate detailing of our bodies, especially those parts which offer the most pleasure.
1 in 7 people with HIV are unaware they have the virus, according to a report by the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control. There's really no need for anyone to be in the dark about their HIV status. You don't need to go to a clinic to test for it, you can self test for HIV in the comfort and privacy of your own home.
By Cara Sutra: I've written various articles on the subject. What I get out of locking a guy up in a chastity cage. Female chastity. Slaves have written their experiences, and there are several chastity device reviews. This year, I'm focusing on Keyholding services.
What springs to mind when you hear the word 'threesome'? Have you ever had the pleasure of one - or is a threesome high on your list of fantasies yet to be made reality? Although porn has helped to make threesomes seem really easy to arrange and always super sexy, the reality can often be far removed from the fantasy.
As I was schooled in the days where computers were a ‘new’ thing that only the posh kids had, I did all my coursework and exams with pen and paper - actually giving myself a ganglion on my right wrist which I still have to this day. Trust me to study all the heavy writing subjects: English Literature, Philosophy and Theology. I believe this is why I need to form my writing pieces with pen and paper first; writers’ quirk borne of familiarity.
By Cara Sutra: Sex toy subscription boxes have been rising in visibility over the past few years, at least that’s how it seems to me. Several years back a new sex toy subscription box service would launch once a year, then it steadily rose to two or three new ones a year and over the past year it seems to be every few months that a new adult subscription box service has launched.
I am disabled. I know. I don’t look disabled, right? In some comparatively small ways, my disability affects my sex life and masturbation. I have a severe high frequency hearing loss, making me deaf but not Deaf. The problems caused by my deafness in life are small and fairly easy to overcome or circumvent, therefore I don’t really class myself as disabled.
As England's capital city, London is the country's busy, beating heart. The centre of media, fashion, parliament and dominated by the financial sector, the city of London is densely packed not only with a thriving multicultural population but a predominantly business-based skyline.
