SwirlingFire: See You Next Tuesday

Reading Time: 4 minutes See You Next Tuesday Tuesday 14 May 2019 “See You Next Tuesday” Tuesday’s I always want to sleep as long as possible, invariably, I wake up really early, before six am and can’t settle back to sleepy snoozing. I then have 7 or 8 hours of restless pacing or trying to find errands or jobs around the house… Read More »

Trans Identity

Reading Time: 6 minutes   This post is a departure from my usual fare.  It may upset some, potentially alienate others.  Quite likely I will receive flak, perhaps abuse.  Probably lose followers, too. When all is said and done I’m of an older generation that grew up in a very different world.  As such I have a big beef with the conformity… Read More »

SwirlingFire: Gratitude

Reading Time: 4 minutes Gratitude It’s the weirdest thing. Seeing my Twitter @name in a compilation list  – The Top 100 Sex Blogging Superheroes of 2019 I’m not a nuts and bolts, dildo testing, vibrator wielding, uncovered gusset angled writer. Whilst, I quickly add – zero judgements of others – this is, after all, how we learn from each other and find our… Read More »

[F4Thought] Evolving Power of a Secret

Reading Time: 4 minutes   I’ll let you into a secret.  I have a work in my drafts folder that talks about some secrets.  It’s been there many months and it’s a perfect piece for this prompt.  But you’re not going to see it until I’m ready or it eventually passes its sell by date 😜  

SwirlingFire: One Wish

Reading Time: 4 minutes One Wish Thoughts keep swirling into view then out again. My head aches from too many thoughts. I’m not a scholarly deep thinker I’m an over thinker An over analyser The last few days (at time of writing) have not been the best.  I thought I was doing a lot better.  It’s the first meltdown I’ve had in… Read More »

The Trousers of Time (at The Crossroads)

Reading Time: 5 minutes   There’s a moment in time during childhood that I can pinpoint as to when my life changed irrevocably.  The fork in the road took me out of one placid inevitability into a chaotic future that still has repercussions each time the butterfly flaps its wings. Obviously, as a child, the choice was made for me.  What no… Read More »

SwirlingFire: Consent

Reading Time: 2 minutes Consent Stomach churning Tightening against acid burns Bile rises more often now Crippling pain that wakes me from sleep Hot sweats cold shivers Nausea Vomiting How delightful Complicated from Physical damage Lies balancing on top of more lies An upturned pyramid Angled steps heading nowhere An Escher print of a complicated architectural testament of how expertly the crafted… Read More »

SwirlingFire: The Concierge

Reading Time: 4 minutes The Concierge I miss the man he pretended to be I fell for a mirage The essence his spells hypnotised me The mindWizard training Ensorcell A new milestone I never expected You’re never alone When cruelly rejected Humiliation is minor The lasting effects You feel all the guilt As your mind is swept clean Boundaries erased Sleight of… Read More »

The Safe Word Hypocrite

Reading Time: 5 minutes   Under the most basic general principles of safety I am all in favour of subs having a safe word.  With so much discussion focused around consent, it’s an essential part of play that makes safety first and foremost for all concerned.  For sure, the more you trust your partner the less you may feel a safeword is… Read More »

SwirlingFire: The Camera Never Lies

Reading Time: 4 minutes The Camera Never Lies I wish I were able to take photos like many of the talented stills I see regularly on social media.  Whether still life, animals, botanical or body parts from any angle.  It started my mind twirling.  Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, there can be one simple frame from a session that… Read More »

The Bon Motto

Reading Time: 2 minutes   When it comes to BDSM I’m more inclined to the principles of RACK than SSC, though either is a vital concept in such relationships for them to be safe(r) and successful. However, although you may not come across these concepts until moving in BDSM circles they’re really just a restatement of something that should already be intrinsic… Read More »

Social Media

Reading Time: 5 minutes   My list of what is social media is defined by age.  My first access to the Internet was in 1991.  The company I’d just joined had installed a Cisco router with a 14,400 dial on demand modem.  A small SCO Unix box was the means for providing everyone with an email account.  I became the de facto… Read More »

Ripping Yarns

SwirlingFire: Kink and Fetish

Reading Time: 6 minutes Kink and Fetish I am such a freaky chick. I get turned on by really odd things. I hadn’t realised until quite recently what turns me on to someone can also turn me completely off too. 1.    Word Play – That’s one of my “things” – word play as flirting, challenging my mind with words I thought… Read More »

Kill The Heretic

Reading Time: 4 minutes   Sometimes it’s hard to think that you’re doing anything different or what might be regarded as out of the ordinary.  Like-minded souls on Twitter and in the blogosphere are not quite an echo chamber, but they do tend to help normalise the idea that kink is ubiquitous. And perhaps it is.  When the tabloids run their salacious… Read More »

SwirlingFire: Betrayed

Reading Time: 3 minutes Betrayed I saw the idea to write daily via a semi pro writer/tweeter. It was to write 365 words everyday.  I bent the directive to help maintain focus. I call it my #365Words. As I attempted the first few days, I found I had started to write prose, sometimes loosely rhyming, yet not a specific rhyming couplets style. … Read More »

SwirlingFire: One Year Blog Anniversary Month

Reading Time: 3 minutes One Year Blog Anniversary Month The Universe seems to be using my vulnerability against me. I’ll blame it on The Harvest Moon. A full moon. People extolling their own frustrations and dumping them on me. Others with noticeable mental health issues that are deliberately inflicting their brand of bad attitude  I’m not certain if I’m an “Empath /… Read More »
