Last night we went to ‘our bistro’ where it was rather quiet, probably due to the unusual warm weather and people rather being outside, barbecuing than having dinner at a restaurant. We are always at the bar, and we are on good terms with all people working there. I see them as friends. There was one song that got all of us talking, and soon, when the restaurant was empty and only a couple of ladies sat outside on the terrace, the music was turned up… Tina Turner, Bruce Springsteen, Kiss, Dire Straits, and more. I remembered earlier this week when AC/DC was on the radio, and I realized how much I love rock music. Last night the thought crossed my mind that the older I get, the more I understand about myself. About the things that I really like, the things that make me tick, the things that make… me. And, you know what? I want to borrow Wriggly Kitty’s words… I like the person I am.
But, I also like my friends. Each person I see as a friend, has meaning in my life, and help to make me the person I am.
Okay, enough of this self reflection… let’s reflect on some sexy posts of the past week, and the prompts for the coming week. Come on, make sure you link your posts!
I have been following Wriggly Kitty’s journey for quite some time, and I am in awe of her journey of exploration and discovering herself, choosing for herself. Her sentence “I know I like the person I am.” In her post I Miss the Life I Didn’t Have is a beautiful testament of her journey.
Rituals between two lovers is something I really can appreciate, as Master T and I have our rituals too. Housewife’s Choice by Hannah Lockhardt is an example of rituals, but also submission and dominance. I love it!
Cara Thereon’s image was the prompt for this week’s Masturbation Monday, and May More has written a brilliant story to go with that image. Her story is called Kitten Care.
I am all about spanking, and reading about it, but not all posts moves me as much as Spanking Miss Hardy by Bibulous One has. This is just so damn sexy and sensual!
Not a sexy post at all, but definitely a post everyone should read: Community, Cliques and Making Friends by Floss. She has the guts to say things the way they are, to point a finger, to give advice. Brilliant post!
Two similar images, but so very different are the ones Charlie Powell and Jayne Renauls have shared for Sinful Sunday. #WeAreHere is Charlie’s image where she says and shows that a disabled body is still a desirable body, and I am… is Jayne’s first time participating in Sinful Sunday.

The ten writers in the semi-finals of the Smut Marathon 2018 all have one more week to send in their stories, and only seven of them will go through to the final round of this writing competition. On Sunday 21 October the semi-final voting round opens and of course, the writers will need every vote they can get!
In the meantime, I have started working on the Smut Marathon 2018 anthology!

Last but not least
Also under the heading of ‘self reflection’, I have decided to go to my doctor this coming week. When I made the appointment online, I shared a list of some vague things bothering me… a pain here, a discomfort there. I am tired (literally) of not feeling 100% and I want to know what’s going on. I have already consulted doctor Google, and I have a feeling I know what it is, but I want my doc to check me over (that sounds a bit filthy, doesn’t it?).
