Stretching my much unused flash fiction fingers with 100 words and a prompt – “pineapple” – from @eroticnotebook. He first mentioned Brazil as I was curved over his lap, his weeping prick between my lips, in a state of some discomfort, limbs angular on either side.

Reflections on Displays of Ownership

I have of late been thinking about ownership, and the ways in which kinky people signify ownership – such as collaring, branding, etc. For me, collaring in particular is highly nuanced.

For example: if you haven’t… Read more →
