Here it is kids, as threatened, my podcast with my long time pal Valerie Strangiato.

And I warned ya’ll that it was a LOOOONG conversation. Well, Valerie did edit but decided that it was all just too much fun, informative goodness that it simply could not be cut. So it’s, um, 2 hours long.

But it’s an entertaining 2 hours of two very sex positive and out spoken women laying down the kinky gospel.

Give it a listen, as much as ya want, and let me know what you think. I was admittedly some what nervous as I couldn’t actually tell you for sure what all I said after the fact. But aside from a tongue clicking noise that I kept making at the start, and my bird creating some interesting background noise at certain points, I’m really very pleased.

If you post feedback here Valerie will see it but you are also encouraged to respond directly on her site. And if you have any questions that aren’t addressed in our not so little chat she’s always looking for more topics to talk on.

I know and admire a number of our local photographers. But the wonderful and often enigmatic images of visioluxus have always held a deep resonance with me.

There are plenty of photos that I enjoy but don’t necessarily feel the need to put in my home. Not only am I fairly OCD when it comes to my domestic surroundings(ie: all things in balance; high color coordination standards; a place for everything and everything in its place). But I’m a very visual person and I’m highly affected by what I see around me on a daily basis.

Despite my incredibly picky purchasing taste, being on Elisa’s LJ is a constant threat to my bank account. Her recent print sale, combined with a Spring induced desire to freshen up my walls, broke through what measly resistance I have to her artistic siren song.

So after much painful deliberation(it was ridiculously difficult to choose) I decided the following images needed to be added to my home:

I’ve promised to take pictures of where everything ends up once I get it all framed and hung. I might even be looking for some willing victims to pose with my new art, just to add an interesting dimension. If I do the latter I’ll definitely post some of those photos here.

Otherwise I guess you’ll just have to come over and see for yourself.

One of the questions that many of my playmates have is how to get their partners to explore more adventuresome activities in the bedroom. Typically, tread lightly, is a good start.

Making a boy band parody video…not so much.

However, I’m a big believer in humor + sex = good. So who knows, maybe this sort of thing IS exactly how you should go about asking for some anal play.

So very not work safe unless you have headphones or a private office. No worrisome images though.

At long last.

So where were we…Wednesday…two weeks ago…things have been busy.

When we last left our intrepid heroine she had just finished a long-winded but lovely podcast with the infamous Valerie Strangiato.

The fun continued the next night at the much anticipated SAKE event happening down in Pioneer Square. If you missed it, and based on the size of the crowd I don’t know that anyone in Seattle did, well then you missed some damn sexy art being viewed by some damn sexy people. I arrived late(as usual) and caught the event in full wall-to-wall swing. Folks had obviously been availing themselves of the “mostly free” wine and though their conversations were still on-topic appropriate to the artistic surroundings, they had begun to group themselves in small clusters. This made viewing the art in the main SAKE space a bit challenging. As a not unpleasant result I spent much of the night holed up in Studio Q aside from one wonderful conversation held in a corner with a long-distant pal. We had a nice catch up and then moved onto more esoteric topics. Like the advantages of moving away from where you grew up to avoid constantly running into the ex-lovers of your adolescence. This said while standing next to her own recently renewed high school sweet heart. I, however, had just missed a near run in with my own ex-boy of the not nearly as distant past. Sometimes this town really is too freakin small.

Eventually the crowds thinned and I snuck out to give the SAKE artists their due consideration. A number of works stand out in my all to often spotty memory. There were some interesting large scale oil prints depicting very eclectic interpretations of the Tarot. One very calming-among-the-chaos piece, that I recall having seen somewhere before, of a flat green field capped by clear blue skies with a single tree at its center. Beneath the grass, a smooth melding of nude torsos in shades of mustard fill the primordial space. In the gallery just to the right of this very feminine piece was a small though dense display of very phallic centric art. I liked the contrast of the subtle nature piece adjacent to all those cocks. There were a few charming tapestry collages that caught my eye, mostly because there were octopus involved(ummmm…tentacles). Krysztof had brought the two pieces he’d shown at SEAF. It was nice to get the chance to see them again. I always feel like I’m being flirted with when I look at his work. Which if you’ve seen his luscious ladies you know, is a very nice feeling. I was sorely tempted…but first I need to frame the Halloween hottie I bought from him a few months back.

And of course there were a number of fabulous photos from some of this town’s(and Portland’s) best shutter-bugs. Here I allowed myself a little splurge:

My playmates aren’t the only ones with a redhead fetish. Plus I think its a lovely composition.

I like the vintage look to this photo, it has that ghostly feel to it you sometimes get from very old images.

As things were wrapping up I finally had to ask Hypnox were his work was. It was “hidden” right in front of the main entrance. In my defense traffic had been heavily congested right there all night. He had some very sexy alterna girl portraits. He has such an amazing eye for this unique type of beauty. He’d also brought out the two images he had at SEAF; a backlit silhouette of a woman’s torso shot from just below the ribs to just above the breast. There’s a natural, water like flow to the image, I’m not completely sure if it has a blue tint to it or if that’s just the sense I get.

The other image he brought…disturbs me. And that’s just what I told Doug when he asked. Which launched us onto a great conversation topic and the official new bee in my bonnet. I’m not sure if this one will take off quite as well as the “If you had to kill someone, how would you do it?” poll, but it got me thinking. And a number of folks I’ve talked to since, seem to have every intention of investigating further on their own. This topic needs a whole post of its own, especially as it has expanded into a larger topic. So for now I leave you with one word…

Labia.

The show wrapped up, none too soon, and some of us die hards made it out to the after party at The Mercury. Much drunken fun was had by all. There was a lot of completely unnecessary panty flashing, ass smacking, deep throat kissing and breast exposing. We’d all just spent many hours looking at porn and there were bound to be repercussions. I suspect that those folks who did not make it to the after party were similarly affected and just wanted to work out their, inspiration, in private. Eventually even the exhibitionists among us needed to find our beds, so we all parted ways, and those of us who still could, drove off into the night.

Next up: Friday’s Nakid Ladies.

I haven’t posted for awhile as my schedule has officially given into spring madness, even if our weather has yet to get on board. But I’ve got a whole bunch of super sexy stuff going on this week so I will have much to report come Monday. The kinky fun got started last night and involved the lovely and talented Ms. Valerie Strangiato, myself and a microphone.

Valerie and I have known each other for…we tried to do the math last night and it was some what disconcerting, so lets just say a very long time. Well, as part of her expanding offerings on her insightful advice website(http://www.valeriestrangiato.com/) she’s going to start posting pod casts and she asked me to be her first interview.

She had some great questions, everything from how did I get into the industry to what is my biggest pet peeve with Femme Domme porn. Both of us are pretty chatty ladies, especially on the topic of sex, so the conversation was very tangent ridden and long. But thanks to the blessings of editing some day soon our rambly pod cast will become something worth listening to by others. I’ll post a link as soon as it’s up but I wanted to share the good news for all you boys and girls that like hearing what I have to say…or at least like listening to my voice.

Next news, is my recommendation on a must have item…couple of them actually. One of my absolute favorite artists is soon to release another tabletop collection of his wonderful work:

He’s even offering a discount for those of you who don’t have his first book, if you buy it with your pre-order for volume XX.

I have been in LOVE with Krysztof’s bodacious beauties for a many years. I’ve listed some of my favorite pieces on my links page. I don’t know if this will be a limited run offering but to be on the safe side(and because I will barely be able to wait till May to get my hot little hands on it) I’ve already ordered my copies.

Mr Charm School himself will be at SAKE tonight with a couple of his lovely ladies for sale. I fully intend to go all groupie on him when I see him there.

Lastly, a note on scheduling. As I stated at the start of this post, all that tree and plant sperm floating in the air is having its usual “invigorating” effect on my playmates and there-by my schedule. No girl is ever sad to see her dance card full, but I did want to give a heads up to all you kinky boys who like to wait to the last minute to try to schedule time with me. Weekends in particular will be a lot harder to reserve. This weekend and next are fully booked though I do still have time during the week, afternoons and evening. That last bit won’t last long, so pack away procrastination with your winter clothes and plan ahead for your play time.
