When yesterday I saw Molly’s thread where she gave thanks to some special people in her life. It stayed with me all day, and when I sat down in the evening two write this post, I knew that this #SoSS should be about thanks too. Thanksgiving was on 28 November and where we don’t celebrate it in the Netherlands, it doesn’t mean we can’t still give thanks.
There are so many things I am thankful to, and there will be no way I can mention all of them here, but I do want to highlight some. Of course there’s Master T. Without him my life wouldn’t have been as happy as it is. He really completes me, and there is just no way I can be without him. Then of course my kids and grandkids. Every day is an adventure with them, and I love that all of them tell me everything.
My chosen family makes me happy too, the people I have gotten to know in this community, and who I see as my friends. I had the privileged this year to travel to London a couple of times, where I spent beautiful days with Molly and Bee and Honey and Pearl, but I have also seen Julie & her master and Kurvy Kinkster and The Gentleman’s Relish when they visited our little country. I wish I could’ve spent more time with my wifey Hyacinth, as it feels we need to share a bottle of wine and a lot of hugs. Oh and then there’s Kayla who I really can’t wait to see again, so I can listen as she passionately talks about her work, and I miss LekkerKontje and her man, as it’s been too long since we have last seen them. If I look closer to home there’s Caroline and Morgan who have both become dear friends, and then some of our longtime friends, who we see every other month. You know who you are!
There are more, but bottom line of what I want to say is that my life is so much richer with all these people in my life. Even though I get to see some of them only once a year, they are my friends. They are there for me when I need advice or a shoulder, but also when we just want to laugh and be happy.
Other things I am grateful for are my blog, Wicked Wednesday and most definitely also the Smut Marathon. Keeping up with all of this is hard work, but it’s so rewarding, and I do it with all the love in the world. This community teaches me so much, about things I should know more about, and about myself. Thank you all for being part of my life, whether I have mentioned you here or not. You DO matter to me!
Please read Lingerie Highlights – Week 45 of Lingerie Is For Everyone, as Violet needs your help to grow her meme in the way she had intended it when she started it, to make it inclusive for EVERYONE, to see all kinds of bodies and genders in beautiful lingerie. Help Violet (and me): I want to learn and I want to pay forward the kindness and acceptance I have been given in the sex+ community.
I love how Kilted Wookie has not only managed to make me squirm in my seat a bit as he wrote about cunnilingus in his post Hooked, but he also linked his post to two almost forgotten memes of mine, Sexy Searching and The Oral Sex Project.
In her post, Calling Yellow, Annabel writes about a task that just didn’t work for her, and how, after she called yellow, she and Raven talked about what didn’t work, and how to do it different or better the next time. Communication really is key in so many relationships, not only the kinky ones.
- Window watching by Submissy — I love absolutely everything about this image, the pose, the edit and those heels! Just wow!
- Snap by The Artful Muse — There is just so much to love in this image: the edit, the pose, the nipple peaking out, and I seem to have a thing for photos with a camera in it.
- Anatomy of a “perfect woman” by Nikki — This is absolutely brilliant. I don’t have any other word for it. Brilliant!
- Baby, It’s Cold Outside by May More — I absolutely love the sexy simplicity of this image.
- Gift by Eye — Eye is a gorgeous woman, and so many times her images blow me away, just like this one did!

Every week someone else in the community does the top 3 roundup for Wicked Wednesday. Sometimes it’s me, but mostly it’s someone else. I love to engage others to do it, because I want Wicked Wednesday to be for everyone.
Are you interested in doing the roundup (again)? Just get in contact with me!
Prompt 391 for Wicked Wednesday was ‘Multitasking’ for which 20 posts were linked. The top 3 was done by Kayla Lords and she chose (yep, there’s 4, as the last one gets an honorable mention):
- Plan your multitasking… by Marie Rebelle
- I Am A Squishy Multitasking Octopus by Deviant Succubus
- Multitasking as a Kink? Leave it to me by Steeled Snake
- My Chaotic Life by J. Lynn
Can you believe it? We have come to the end of the Smut Marathon 2019 and tomorrow the WINNER will be announced. As I am writing this, the voting round is still open, and I have no idea who the winner will be. Results are just SO close together. What I do know is that the writers have done a great job of the ‘whodunnit’ prompt and each of the six stories are worthy to be the winner of this year’s marathon. Of course, by the time this post goes live, I will know who the winner and two runners up are, but you will have to wait until noon my time tomorrow for it to be announced. Watch the Smut Marathon site!
Speaking of that, in 15 days the entries for the Smut Marathon 2020 opens!
