Erotic asphyxiation: treatments of kink in therapy and the media Kink and BDSM practitioners often come to an enhanced understanding of their own desires through the emphasis on personal boundaries and communicative consent which arises from a responsible approach to power and pain play.

Mirror, mirrorI found myself back there again, perched on the edge of the white expanse, spreading myself shamelessly in front of the glass

WorryI’ve been thinking about rape culture more than ever before. On the outside, much of K’s and my play looks like sexual abuse. It’s not, because consent is always central.

gender and misogyny: responsibility and erotic writingI spent a good portion of my adult life being gender fluid myself …, and have partnered with several gender fluid folks as a top. Creating representation of us and our eroticism feels so vital to me, so important.

Help End the Backlog Speaking out works. Taking action works. Silence doesn’t. Politicians on every level need to hear your voice saying “this is unacceptable”. 76%. 3/4. That’s how many rapists get away with it on a national level.

Elust returns

I wanted to announce some site updates, reminders and give you a pre-reminder that Elust will be coming off of hiatus this week for edition #22.

I could still use a few volunteer judges – check out this page to read more about judging.

A refresher on the guidelines for participation is here, please give it a glance. Most participants are doing great; in the coming editions I’m going to be a little more harsh with asking people to stick to these in order to be included in e[lust]. I hate to be the resident bitch but I just don’t have the time to babysit and remind people time and again.

Very soon I’ll be updating the Blogger Education series of pages on Elust, sort of a companion to the old Sex Blogger Co-op. If you’ve got ideas for things you’d like to see explained (or things you’d be able to write) please email me!

Important e[lust] update: e[lust] will be going on hiatus for the holidays. The editions for November and December would both occur around the holidays and I know I’ll be short on both submissions and judges as well as personal time. e[lust] #22 will return in January, with ample advance warning, so please make sure you’re subscribed for updates!

D/s Without the D/s?This is one of those situations in a real time D/s relationship where much of the “fun” aspects of the D/s needs to be stuffed in the closet for a bit. And for us, it’s not a great time to be either a masochist or a sadist. We can deal with that.

Yes, Jelly Sex Toys Can be DangerousEven if a jelly rubber toy says “phthalate-free”, it still can contain toxic chemicals that can cause skin reactions in some people. These toys are still non-porous and can harbor dirt and bacteria because they cannot be sanitized.

~ This Week’s Top Three Posts ~

Unfortunately, this edition has no Top Three picks as I didn’t have enough volunteer judges. If you’d like to volunteer to help, visit this page to find out more info and ensure that the Top Three picks continue.

Site Updates

Hey everyone! I’ve lately had a few people questioning / misinterpreting the Elust guidelines for participation, so I’ve re-written them which hopefully clarifies. For those of you who faithfully re-post on time by publishing the full edition in a new post, (which is most of you) then you don’t have to worry much. Ur doin it rite.

 

All others, and especially those who are new to this, please read it over to make sure you’re playin fair.

 

Also, I made the “about Elust” it’s own page and I hope it explains what this is all about better plus encourages more bloggers to join in. If you ever see a blogger who doesn’t know about Elust, but should, you can point them to the About page.
