I have a lot of catching up to do!! *scrambles hurriedly*
So without further ado – the continuation of my Thirty Days of Kink series!
Thirty Days of Kink
– Day Nineteen –
Any unexpected ways kink has improved your life?
Yes, actually. I have been struggling with Anxiety, Major Depressive Disorder, PTSD and some Bipolar Disorder for some years now. Medication and therapy do what they can, but kink plays a very important part in making me feel better.
When I am submissive and get a spanking, it seems to clear my head of all anxieties and only the delicious pain remains. I can stay elated for quite a while after that. I am aware that the adrenaline and endorphin high is probably the cause of it, but it is beneficial nonetheless.
When I am Dominant, I get drunk on the power and control I have over men. It makes me able to move past my negative thoughts and PTSD. Depression usually goes away simply because I feel evil and mischievous. The fact that I feel strong and sexy doesn’t hurt either.

Talk about something within kink/BDSM that you’re curious about/don’t understand.
There are quite a few things I do not understand, ranging from Vore, to scat play, to snuff porn. But I don’t see what I can say about them beyond that, other than: to each their own. I have no reason to judge someone else’s fetishes and kinks. I may not understand them, but I don’t think I have the right to discuss the tastes of people when I understand very little of where they are coming from.

Favorite BDSM related book (fiction or non-fiction)?
Initially, I was going to respond that it was Concertina: The Life and Loves of a Dominatrix, by Susan Winemaker. This is not only because Ms. Winemaker writes with a delightful style, but because, for the longest time, it was the only BDSM book on my shelf. I must admit that, because kinky books weren’t always the easiest to find at the big name bookstores, I hadn’t really bothered to look for them.
That is, until Miss Pearl told me I could find great kink stories in e-book format.
Since then, my favourite book has got to be Safe Words, by Drury Jamison. I really want to tell you why, but I am not yet done the book and I intend to post a review of it when I am done. So look for more info on this tasty little morsel of fiction in a later post!
I hope I haven’t lost too many of my kinky little bunnies during my hiatus. I promise more from this series tomorrow and more juicy posts to come.
