Whose Apprentice Is It, Anyway?

Press Play…. “So you’ll be in here?” She curled her fingers around the chainlink of the cage, and pulled on it. The cage rattled, excitedly. Mitchell nodded. “Yes.” She turned and, still holding the cage, pointed at the other man. “And I’ll be fucking Brutus?” Brutus smiled at her. His flash of teeth proved there was something on him that …

Swinging in the Temporal Realm of COVID

Two of the Toronto sex clubs re-opened in recent weeks. Pardon me, Toronto’s lifestyle clubs. One of those clubs, Club M4, is a place my regular readers will recognize. In the club’s initial location, along Lake Shore Blvd in Toronto’s west end, it was the setting for the opening scene of my first novel, “Just Prey.” It was also the …

Self-Control – Return to Wednesday Word

Fact, itself, rarely influences truth. I’ve tweeted that more than once, but as you can see, it is seven years since the last time. I used …

Negotiating Consent

Bondage, discipline, dominance and submission, sadomasochism…this is BDSM in a nutshell. Though I don’t think it likes being in a nutshell. BDSM would get very grumpy were it in a nutshell. The concept of BDSM is as an umbrella over a wide awry of concepts. GQ, of all publications, gives a very vanilla and beginner A-Z list of some BDSM …

It’s Only Towel Day – Try Not To Panic

Douglas Adams died in 2001. Hard to say, but I am uncertain that the grief over losing him twenty years ago has yet ended. With this in mind, welcome to the twentieth anniversary of International Towel Day (May 25). The day created by Douglas Adams’ fans two weeks after his passing to remember Douglas and his works. The day when …
