Countdowns & Candles #SoSS #67

Holding a candle between my breasts

There’s several countdowns going on at this moment. We are counting down to the end of February Photofest, counting down to the start of a new Smut Marathon voting round, counting down to Eroticon and I am counting down to my birthday, which is in 2 days. Only thing is, I am not really counting down. I don’t think my birthday has ever interested me as little as it does this year. I will be visiting mom’s grave on Monday after work, because I want to go to her on special days, and the 25th is a celebration of the day she gave birth to me. I want to be with her, if only for a moment, and I know after my birthday the darker emotions that have welled up in me in the past couple of days, will start to disappear again. There comes a time when it won’t have this much influence on me anymore. I know, but it’s still too soon.

Let’s get on to something sexy… all the sexy things I mention in this week’s #SoSS!

Sexy writing

The first thing you see on Indie’s post, No. 17. Skin is an image of her back, and then you start reading the post. Once I started, I couldn’t stop anymore, and by the end of it I wanted to scream: “Yay for body positivity!”

Violet shares the beginning of a new chapter in The Long and Winding Road of Kink in her life, and I love the open and honest way she has written this, the way she has explored and came to where she is now. This is a beautiful piece of writing.

It’s brilliant when a story evokes different emotions in different readers. I found Ella Scandal’s story chilling and sad, others found it creepy, and others found it only sad. Read All That Remains to see what feelings this calls up in you.

Hot images

Like the last two weeks, this week too I want to mention images that has been shared for February Photofest 2019:

I have one picture post I want to mention this week, which wasn’t part of February Photofest. That is Reductio ad absurdum by Accidental Masturbator which is not an image, but an incredibly sexy video. You just have to see this!

Competition

The writers of the Smut Marathon 2019 have only four days left to write their stories for the second round. The second voting round opens on Sunday, 3 March. Please make sure you visit the site, read the stories and vote for those you like best, as the second round is an elimination round. Only 75 writers advance to round 3.

Last but not least

For my February Photofest 2019 I am taking a trip down memory lane…

The image I am sharing today had been taken on the last day of 2016. Master T and I went to our bedroom earlier on the evening to take a couple of images as I ‘needed’ them for a post I wanted to do. I have no idea what the kids thought when we disappeared in the bedroom for the better part of two hours.

Looking at this image, and seeing the date stamp, I can’t help to think that we were on the brink of a big year for mom and me – mom’s 70th birthday and my 50th. However, instead of a celebratory year, 2017 turned out to be a nightmare…

Today, with my birthday so close, mom in my thoughts constantly and my tears far too close for comfort, I am burning a candle for my mom. I know she wouldn’t have minded the sexy nature of this image…
