Body & Mind #SoSS #41

Sometimes our bodies and minds don’t align, no matter how much we want them too. One of the posts I chose for this roundup illustrates that very well and it made me think of some of those moments where my body and mind were not in sync with each other.

It also made me think of what an influence the one can have on the other. Like I see with my husband, who has now been struggling with almost constant pain for two years. This has such an influence on his mind, that he is on the verge of depression. He was on antidepressants, which stole his libido, and we thought it would be back when he stopped the meds. It was. Maybe for a day. He’s slowly moving back towards a depression. Hopefully his psych will have some advice for him next week.

The other way around is true too, that if your mind is not okay, it can make your body hurt. Think about stressful situations where you cannot handle the pressure, where panic rises in your head, and eventually the stress invades your muscles, causing cramps and headaches and other pains.

There is nothing more beautiful than when body, mind and soul are totally synchronized. Oh, how I long for that for both me and Master T.

But, it’s time to look at all the goodness the sex blogging community had to offer in the last week!

Sexy writing

This is all about trust, all about love, about knowing each other. Kisungura shows us a snippet of her life in When your mind says yes but your body says no…
This is how it should be. No anger, no resent. Things like this can happen.

When saw the title ‘The message said‘, I had no idea what to expect, but once again Cara has me in awe of her writing. This story is raw and so damn real. Also make sure you read her flash fiction pieces using the daily #Storyin12 prompt.

Hot images

I looked at this image, and I looked again and again and again. I stared at it actually, and not because I was trying to name that tune, but because this image by Sub Bee and her man is so incredibly beautiful and creative.

One of the most natural things in a woman’s life is menstruation, but it’s something that so many are ashamed of. I love Molly’s post, Privately, her image and the strong quote she had used with it.

Another image of a private moment is Honey’s post Shower Me. She looks utterly delicious and I agree with everything she said about showers!

I love that Jade is sharing images from a time that was very special to her and ended far too soon. In #ScavengerHunt Throwback Thursday – A New Series she’s starting to share images of Scavenger Hunts that she’s got with W. You should definitely join in with the Scavenger Hunt too!

Last week the results of the seventh round of the Smut Marathon were published. Fifteen writers are through to the quarter finals and sadly we had to say goodbye to three writers. Are you as excited as I am to read the delicious stories the writers come up with with their newest assignment?

Last but not least

I have an announcement to make!

Next week, on the 1st day of September, the start of the last trimester of this year, and to me, officially the start of autumn, this website will be down for several hours (hopefully not too many). When I post my my #SoSS post that day, the website will be renewed. Now don’t expect something totally different, except that I will reveal my new logo then and some things will be more streamlined than they are now. The homepage will be totally different, and then again it will not. Changes will be subtle, but noticeable.

Watch this space!

  1. Thank you for the mention!

    I understand the frustration and sadness when body & mind aren’t aligned. I lived with the same issue with antidepressants – I need them for the chemical imbalance in my brain, but most of them destroyed my libido, which, in turn, caused depression. It shouldn’t have to be a choice between depression and no sex drive. It took a lot of experimentation and time to find the right combo, but we finally have, thank god. Encourage Master T to persevere, and not to take “that’s just the way it is” from his doctor. It may take lots of experimentation with different kinds and combinations, but eventually he should find something that works. I wish you both the best (and think of you often.)
