Resource Recs: Inspiration Hits! A Kinky YouTube Show



I’m always on the hunt for sexuality resources to recommend and if you are into BDSM I really, really recommend the YouTube show Inspiration Hits!

I freely admit that the hosts of the show – Mr. Reality and Friday – approached me for an interview about my video book reviews. And while this was exciting, it certainly didn’t warrant me binge watching their show for three hours – which is what I did. Because I couldn’t help myself – their show is informative, down-to-earth, practical, and witty to boot!

Episodes cover BDSM safety, topics in Polyamory, and general information posts regarding the kinky lifestyle. But the thing that sets the show apart from other resources is their build and review episodes on DIY kink toys.

These videos are presented as a duo – Mr. Reality walks the audience through the build of a DIY implement and Friday does a review of said implement, pointing out pros, cons, and cautions on using the toy. This is so helpful to those making the toys and engaging in top/bottom play. I love this set up.

My favorite example is the build of some Chopstick DIY Canes...

 ... and Friday’s review.
 

A few of my other favorite videos include….

What is Polyamory?!
 

Media depictions of BDSM as Abuse
 

The Difference between "Safe, Sane, and Consensual" and RACK

Friday's take on the 50 shades silliness (Unlaced Librarian gives major Kudos for actually finishing the Fantasy Lady Porn.)
 

And if you need a dose of humor to go with your Polyamory, check out Things no one tells you about Polyamory

 

So the next time you need a dirty idea for a DIY project or would like to spread some solid foundational info on BDSM and Polyamory remember Inspiration Hits! on....

Book Review: The Mistress Manual: The Good Girl's Guide to Female Dominance

I must confess that I become quite melancholy this time of year because I dreadfully miss going "back to school." But this time around, I almost felt like I was back in school because I had this book. Mistress Lorelei Powers has such a wonderfully authoritative and insightful voice with just enough snark, charm, and wit. I truly felt as though I were her pupil completing some very important homework as I studied this text.

Though I am involved in BDSM on some levels my interests rest mostly in fetishes rather than power exchange. So I admit that I consumed this book as a reader just as much as I did a sex blogger. And the experience was delightful.

This book is the perfect length and quite reader friendly. There is a lot of information packed into this manual, but it is enjoyable to peruse a second or third time and great to have as a reference.

The first part of the book addresses many concepts and issues in female dominance. What if you are reluctant to take the dominant…

10 Reasons I Include Porn in My Marriage

Type “porn” and “marriage” in Google and a myriad of articles appear fretting about how porn is utterly ruining marriage. A fairly representative post can be found here. If that one's not scathing enough, read this one.  I personally used to have lots of issues with porn. But now I’m a pro-porn advocate and I believe people can make porn a healthy part of a balanced sexuality and even, yes, marriage. Below are ten reasons I intentionally include porn in mine.
1.Strengthen trust with honesty and shared vulnerability

Because we are open about the role porn (and erotica) plays for us individually and in our marriage, we can tell each other truthfully when something we see turns us on, when we want to try something we’ve seen, when we are in the mood to watch something, or any number of other things. We don’t have to worry about lying or sugar coating the truth about our desires, and that honesty means we trust each other with the information. And the truth is, hearing, “Wow, that woman…

My Thoughts On Adding Kink to the LGBT+ Acronym

I would like to preface the following by saying that this is not an assertive, serious-toned post with a mic-drop at the end. At the end of the day, I’m really not passionate one way or the other on if a ‘K’ is added to the LGBT+ acronym. I’m not even using the full acronym to comment on adding the K on. However, since I wrote a book about being a fetishist, I admit I did have some thoughts when an article on the subject of adding kink into the LGBT+ appeared in my radar.
So, today I’m sharing some of those thoughts. These are only my thoughts. Consider what follows a sort of thinking out loud. I’m sure there are plenty of people more qualified than me who will hash things out. Especially seeing as the comments section on the above article is far longer and complicated than the original article. (Though that, perhaps was the goal.)
At any rate. Some of my thoughts.
First off, I do consider kink to be my sexual orientation. But I completely understand how people won’t accept kink as a se…
