Submission: rarely easy, always worth it.
One of the things I am pondering mightily is the reality of submission as it is lived vs. the hot & horny fantasy of d/s. A time ago, I went to the Center for Sex & Cultureâ€‹ to see Laura Antoniouâ€‹ talk about stuff. Not many people beside myself were there, because jaded-ass San Francisco…Read More
International Ms Leather 2015 and me.
As International Ms Leather 2010, I weathered my own share of controversy. The IMsL 2015 has already weathered quite a bit of controversy. Those of you who have been following along on FaceBook and FetLife don’t need a rehash, but suffice to say that we’ve been waging wars on many fronts, starting with this image,…Read More
Life, stuff, and rope on MTV
Hey kids…it has been a while, innit? Lots happening, and some more needs to happen before i can shakedown this blog and reopen it in the way I’d like to. Some seismic shifts have pushed about my little life’sÂ coracle and I- we – have weathered them. Some waves have been rough and once or twice,…Read More
(More than OK)Cupid.
One year ago today, a rather intriguing e-mail hit my inbox on OKCupid. One year and one week ago today, in a very demanding conversation with my Higher Power, I’d let Him know I was done with these crazy dreams and schemes I’d had. I was depressed. I was just back from a wildly unsuccessful…Read More
Dear Submissive… Submission can, and should, be many things. From torturously difficult to lightly breezy, from profoundly sexual to sublimely spiritual. However. It outright ought not feel WRONG. If / when it does, stop. Stop and think. Stop and think and check yourself. Then protect the property. Peace. MoRead More

Why I’m suspicious of those suspicious of change.
It’s the same mantra and hand wringing every few years. “THEY ARE RUINING THE SCENE!” “It was So. Much. Better in the (insert decade prior to current decade)!” When people bemoan the broader acceptance and cultural destigmatization of BDSM and scoff at the hoi polloi who ruined the glory days, I can’t help but wonder…Read More
“The most beautiful love story.”
Howdy from Austria. Land of schnitzel & secondhand smoke. It has been quite a stretch of time since I have blogged. Those who are connected to me virtually via Twitter or better yet Facebook have been on the receiving end of snippets and sketches and bits about the past few months. Part of me wants…Read More
Seven years ago today, I was in rehab, on about six different medications to try to keep me alive but sedated so I wouldn’t have seizures. Because roughly 10% of alcoholics who stop drinking cold turkey are killed by brain seizures. I was ashamed and terrified but determined to try to live. I met my…Read More

We interrupt this program to bring you a commercial message.
I am superfucking picky about reviewing shit, endorsing stuff, reviewing toys, permitting advertising on my site…all that shit. Why? because I’m lazy. Yep. I often do not wanna do the work it takes to vet people, places and things for inclusion on my site. (That’l likely change soon, because I need to monetize this fucker.…Read More
Permission to be human: granted.
I was more anxious than happy when I received an IM from The Composer. It was the middle of the night for him, and he had responded to one of my e-mails letting me know he was only up for a bit and was going to sleep once he was done working. The anxiety stemmed…Read More
Pride without prejudice.
Sometimes I don’t realize what I’m missing until I have it. ExperiencingÂ The Composer‘s pride & delights in my achievements brought to the fore of my thoughts today the fact that my previous dominants seemed very much to focus on making certain my achievements were put into “proper perspective.” Underscoring that I was no better than…Read More
Skidding into the end of a year that was, on balance, more emotionally difficult than not, and rough on my relationships I held dear. Amidst the usual online dating fails, I received a message on December 19th. Respectful with a little bit of zest, acknowledging he was a bit older than I’d initially indicated I…Read More

Dear Mollena… It is tough out here. When you are single, even tougher. You have been trying, with not much success, to be active in your search for a partner. You have heard so many stories and seen so much that dents your already battered heart. I know I am not alone, and I want…Read More
” 69 saker du vill veta om sex!”
When I was in Sweden earlier this year – (and suffering from a MASSIVE middle-ear infection) I was interviewed for a show that would, eventually, air on Swedish TV. Thanks to a sharp-eyed friend over in Sverige (THANK YOU JOHAN!) I just got word that it aired tonight on television and everything!Read More
Aah, online dating. I’ve been registered withÂ online dating sites of all stripes since the fledgling days of my tiptoed explorations into the internet, and have seen many come and go. One of the worst of the BDSM / kink slums is CollarMe.com. My profile there is maintained purely for comic relief and passive gathering of…Read More
Be “That Guy.”
Some people wonder what they can do when everyone else is following along one path. “I’m just one person.” they insist. “I don’t have the same ‘high-profile you have,” they tell me “nobody will listen to me.” “Yeah, I know that person / presenter / event / group / Munch is slack on shitty behaviour….or…Read More
Excerpted from “The Admiral’s Slave.”
From Chapter 2 â€œMolly.â€ â€œYes, Master.â€ â€œYou have not been thorough in your duties. Are you quite certain you are done?â€ â€œIs there something further you require, Master?â€ â€œYes.â€ The fireâ€™s brazen shadows played over his face, glittering within his half-closed eyes. He grasped my forearm with his damp hand and pulled me so that…Read More

Veteran’s Day, and a thought for my Father.
I don’t often pay much attention to Veteran’s Day except to ponder the horribleness of war. But this morning I realized the most influentiam man of my childhood served in the armed forces..and I don’t even know where he is today. My Father is (was?) a Navy Vet, having served Â in Vietnam and surviving the…Read More
Leather Reign 2013: on silence & service.
I was invited to one of my favourite Leather events last year, and was happy to say yes. I respect the way the folks at Leather Reign do business, and I salute the honor they did me in inviting me to speak to their guests. Â When they invited me to speak at their dinner, I…Read More
