You will find the link further on in this post, but don’t forget to hop over and vote for the three stories you like best in the fifth round of the Smut Marathon. There’s some more voting to do this week, but for that you will definitely have to read on.
As for exposure… it’s not only about the one story I have added to my roundup this week, but also about the exposure I have gone through this past week. My world has been shaken – again – this time in my professional life. I feel exposed, I feel like I am being pushed aside, I feel like everyone is angry with me. Deep down I know I have changed too. My continued grief for everything that has happened in the past 21 months, the way my life – our life – has changed, the way we keep on getting hope things will be better, only to be thrown back to square one again… all of this has taken it’s toll on me. It shows. Everywhere. I put this mask on, but this means people feel I am indifferent, that I don’t care anymore. It’s not that. I am fighting with myself – constantly. Fighting to go on. I have sought help, but it’s not a ‘1-2-3 and now you’re better thing’. It takes time, and I don’t know how much time. How things will pan out in my work life will become clear in the next 6-8 weeks. In the meantime, I try to keep my composure, try to ignore the feeling of my soul being naked, of being exposed.
Time will tell…
Oh gosh, to be publicly ‘exposed’ is one thing I dream about but don’t have the guts to do or even say out loud. Hannah writes a perfect scene of public ‘exposure’ in her post, Night Bus.
Reading Wriggly Kitty’s Kinky Fuckery reminded me of how much I want to be in this position again, to be able to let go of everything and just be!
I love stories with something dark in it, and that is what Ella Scandal’s story I Will Reign have. Something dark and a lot of sexy!
Oh, if only I could be in Lilly shoes when this scene, How Very Victorian, plays out. Bibulous One has the best ideas!
Black Lace Boobs is a beautiful image by Miss Scarlet. I love how the lace covers her but shows just enough to make you want to see a lot more!
Last week was prompt week on Sinful Sunday and a couple of images really caught my eye, all of them following the prompt ‘underneath’. Those images are that of Little Switch Bitch, Jo of Teachers have Sex, Missy and Annie Savoy.
