Dust billowed up as the wagon ambled down a worn dirt road reserved for indigents and invalids. Curled in the back of the wagon clutching her satchel, Cordelia was certain she was neither. She had been offering a perfectly legitimate trade on that street corner back in town. Yet someone still turned her in for begging in public.
Cordelia found herself with no means to pay for a room at the boardinghouse and not a single establishment in White Spring would let her wash dishes or sweep floors for even one day.
Without any further discussion, Cordelia was shoved into the back of a wagon to be hauled off to the Clay County poor farm.
There had been a brief exchange in which the man entrusted with…
Earlier this week @KelseyObsession on Twittier
(SexuallyAwkward.com) posted a poll asking if porn has helped people’s lives, hurt
people’s lives, or been a neutral force. I answered that porn has helped my
life... because it has! I see the sentence “porn ruined my life” so often but I can

As a person who can think myself off, I rely on sexual fantasy and erotic media like erotica and porn to masturbate and own relatively few sex toys. But that's all right! Part of my message about …
