About bit about me:

What would you do with the sudden opportunity to explore any facet of sexuality and BDSM with no judgment, prejudice, or dangerous consequences? In Mara’s community of Zebulon, that’s what she’s about to find out.

August 3rd question – When you set out to write a story, do you try to be more original or do you try to give readers what they want?

Jayden: I write for myself. I tried writing to get published, but especially in the world of kinky smut, they often want very specific things. As a bisexual switch, sometimes I want a variety of things in one story. It depends on my mood. So when I write and self-publish, I can write whatever combinations I want. It’s very freeing. I just keep reminding myself of the best writing advice I’ve ever been given: write what you want to read.

Richard: For most genre writing, I think you should be trying to do both. If you’re writing a fantasy story, people want to see some dragon slaying or whatever. But you should be trying to do your dragon slaying in an original way. Have your peasants give the dragon more and more tributes until it’s suffocated/crushed under it’s horde!

Original or Give ’em What They Want?

TMI Tuesday: July 19th, 2022

Most things in life are moments of pleasure like dishing at TMI Tuesday blog.

1. Would you rather be attracted to for your body or your mind?

Jayden: My mind. I don’t like my body now, much less when I’m older… Richard likes it though.

Richard: Body. Most people I know who are attracted to people for their minds are the kind of people that will lock you in their basement.

2. What would be more embarrassing for you out in public–to be seen tripping or adjusting your “package”?

Jayden: I mean… both happen on a regular basis. I’m frequently tripping and my boobs are big, so they get adjusted. *shrug* I guess tripping is more embarrassing.

Richard: Package. Tripping is funny or something.

3. If you are going to be famous what is it for?

Jayden: I hope writing. Other than that, I don’t know what I could get famous for.

Richard: I guess writing too. I hope not.

4. Would you rather urinate in port-a-potty or nearest bush?

Jayden: Port-a-potty. Squatting sucks. It’s so hard not to just have piss running down your legs…

Richard: Bush

5. What new beginning are you excited about?

Jayden: I am excited to be going back to school.

Richard: TOWEL ANIMAL FOLDING

Bonus: Burrito or Tamale

Jayden: Burrito. I love burritos.

Richard: Burrito. How is this even a question?

TMI Tuesday: July 19th, 2022

Take part in this guilty pleasure that is TMI Tuesday.

1. Confession booth. Confess two things right here on TMI Tuesday.

Jayden: I love the Bachelor franchise even though it’s trash TV. I have a lot of kinks that are hard limits for many people.

Richard: I spend Bachelor time most weeks sharpening knives. I hate vacation.

2. I am guilty of _____ .

Jayden: never being satisfied with myself.

Richard: not getting enough sleep

3. A big box is delivered to you. The address is correct but the name on the label is not you. Do you open the box?

Jayden: This happened to us! We (meaning Richard) turned it into the apartment management office. It was one of those meal delivery boxes. They refrigerated the box and contacted the person. A week later, another box showed up. Richard went to bring it down, and they ended up giving us both boxes.

Richard: So yes.

4. How long have you held a grudge?

Jayden: I try not to, but there are a few things that are hard to let go of.

Richard: Probably about a year.

5. Does anyone have a grudge against you? Why?

Jayden: Probably. I was someone’s second wife, and I’m pretty sure the first wife held a grudge against me.

Richard: Yes. I don’t actually know why, I just know he wanted to shoot me.

Bonus: There is this one thing in my life I wish I had not done. I wish I had not _____ .

Jayden: put myself last for so long.

Richard: gone to such a crappy school for undergrad. And then no one would’ve wanted to shoot me. Probably. I guess I could’ve pissed someone else off.

Jayden: Sure, I mean, I’ve been to Disney and I had all the character autographs as a kid. Other than that, I’ve gotten some autographs at shows before.

4. There is going to be an exhibition in your honor. What 5 things from your life must go on display? Why those particular pieces?

Jayden: A cross stitch I finished, a landscape picture I took, a color coded spreadsheet, a blanket I crocheted, a book I wrote

Richard: I’ll just leave out five things of sourdough starter so people can take them, I don’t really want to be exhibited anyway.

2. When it comes to sex, which of the following do you and your partner disagree about more:

Where to have sex, when to have sex or how often to have sex?

Jayden: How often to have sex. Richard thinks I want it a lot more often than him. I don’t think it’s as much as he thinks.

Richard: How often. I did the math, Jayden needs at least 2.5 times a day.

3. Worse thing to do as a couple:

a. dieting
b. picking a movie
c. building something from Ikea

Jayden: Richard’s sourdough bread, probably.

Richard: IT’S ALIVE!

5. Tell us the best thing you bought to enhance your life for under 30 usd.

TMI Tuesday: July 12th, 2022

Looky Looky

1. What movie dialogue do you know by heart?

Jayden: The first one I ever learned was The Lion King. I was probably 8 when I started literally writing the dialogue down in a notebook… I probably still have it somewhere.

Richard: Star Wars (probably ANH) is the highest percentage. The Transformers (80s, not the Michael Bay disaster) is up their too though.

2. Which show do you watch the most?

Jayden: The Bachelor franchise. I know it’s trash TV, but I love the drama.

Richard: Probably King of The Hill. I’ve watched the whole thing front to back multiple times, and clips of it come up pretty often in my feeds to add on.

3. Do you get shy on camera?

Jayden: Not too shy, but I often hate the way pictures of me come out.

Richard: I’m bad at smiling, so I always try to stick something in my mouth.

4. How often do you take selfies?
a. Once a week
b. A few times a week – Jayden
c. Every day
d. Never – Richard

Jayden: I try to take selfies to share when I’m out doing fun things.

Richard: Very occasionally I’ll initiate one if Jayden and I are out somewhere, but basically never of just me. Usually she asks for one first.

5. Do you like being watched?

Jayden: Not especially. It depends on the situation…

Richard: Usually. I like attention.

Bonus: What’s the last thing you got in trouble for?

Jayden: Umm… I lost track of time when Master (Richard) told me to come upstairs in 30 minutes. I was probably on Facebook. Whoops.

Richard: Horseplay at the hotel pool.

July 6 question – If you could live in any book world, which one would you choose?

Jayden: That’s hard because a lot of the books I read are dystopian, and that doesn’t sound so great! Harry Potter is a very cool world to live in, once You Know Who is gone, anyway. I guess I’ll stick with that one.
Richard: One of those safety instruction books, where people drop blenders into tubs and stuff. It just seems like a very strange place, I’d like to find out more about it.

What book world would you want to live in?

TMI Tuesday: July 5th, 2022

TMI Tuesday–play it again. First time here? Welcome.

1. What is the most ambitious work you’ve done in the past five years?

Jayden: Writing-wise, writing 50k in 24 hours. I did it three times. And I’ll probably never do it again.
Professionally, changing jobs during covid.
Educationally, applying for and being accepted to a doctoral program.

Richard: I got married!

2. What is the biggest risk you’ve taken in your life?

Jayden: Leaving my husband. I had been with him my entire adult life, and he made a lot more money than me. I’m doing well though, really well.

Richard: I turned in smut for homework!

3. What do you do when no one is watching?

Jayden: Cry, a lot, haha. Most TV shows make me cry. I can’t help it.

Richard: Usually play video games, just because when Jayden isn’t home is the easiest time to do it.

4. How do you get attention?

Jayden: From Richard, I playfully whine that I need kisses and snuggles. He usually acquiesces.

Richard: Just existing, I guess. I generally try to avoid it.

5. Who do you stalk on the internet?

Jayden: My daughter’s favorite YouTuber. I want her to start doing Cameos again so I can get one for my daughter, but… she just had a baby, so I understand why she’s busy right now.

Richard: Some random guy who reads the same books as me, but has the worst takes.

Bonus: What did you watch last night?

Jayden: Nothing? I think I watched part of an episode of Survivor while I did the dishes. I’m also watching The Magicians on Netflix and Richard and I are working through Futurama, but we didn’t watch either last night.

Richard: If Jayden didn’t watch anything, I didn’t either.

June 1 question – When the going gets tough writing the story, how do you keep yourself writing to the end? If you have not started writing yet, why do you think that is and what do you think could help you find your groove and start?

Jayden: I know that if I don’t finish a project in one go, I won’t ever finish it. It’s too hard for me to come back to it after a lot of time away. That’s why NaNo is so great for me–I can write the whole novel in one shot. (Not one day, generally, but one month at least.) When I switch between projects, I tend to get distracted and lose track of details, even when I outline what I’m writing as I write it. So that motivation of knowing I might not ever finish the project is a big part of getting to the end.

On the other hand, I’ve been kicking around this erotic novel set in a world with societies of Dommes (and dinosaurs!) but I haven’t, and Richard and I even did the whole worldbuilding outline! I don’t know what’s stopping me there, but I am hopeful that I can get to in July for CampNaNo. Having other people to support me definitely helps a lot!

Richard: My favorite trick is to switch how I’m telling the story. A lot of my writing has mini-epistolary sections, so those are a great opportunity to think about it from a different angle and get unstuck. Swapping to a different part or character can work too, but I find the little snippets I get from writing travel guides, new casts, etc. are more useful.

How do you motivate yourself?

TMI Tuesday: May 31st, 2022

Today is Macaroon day. Macaroon NOT Macaron, the french cookie. Did you know if you search Macaroon a bunch of pictures of Macaron pop up? It takes a deeper dive to find a single photo of the coconut-y, mini cake.

Did you know that the word macaroon comes from the Italian word maccarone, meaning paste?

On with the MACAROON celebration for TMI Tuesday.

1. Have you eaten a macaroon? Did you like it?

Jayden: I…don’t remember. I feel like I did, and I didn’t like it. It might have been coconut, which I don’t like.

Richard: Once or twice, but I also don’t like coconut.

2. Do you prefer a coconut macaroon or the original almond paste version?

Jayden: I don’t like coconut, so probably almond paste, but I don’t love that either.

Richard: The original

3. Have you made macaroons? Share your recipe if you’d like.

Jayden: Nooope! Not my thing. 🙂

Richard: I have not.

4. To jazz up a basic macaroon–egg whites, sugar, and coconut–which of the following will you add?
a. chocolate
b. fresh fruit or fruit preserved
c. candy
d. cinnamon

Jayden: Cinnamon. All sweets are better with cinnamon.

Richard: Cinnamon, so Jayden will eat them and I don’t have to.

5. Would you rather eat a macaroon or macaron?

Jayden: I don’t know. I don’t care for either, honestly. I guess a macaron because there are more flavor options.

Richard: Lavender Macaron!

TMI Tuesday: May 24th, 2022

good sex_tmi-horz

Another fantastic blast from the past! Do play, do enjoy.

This week’s TMI Tuesday questions were created by an anonymous blogger and lurker. This week’s theme– THE GOOD, THE BAD AND THE UGLY. Thank you Anonymous#1 

1. What made the best sex partner you’ve ever had so good?

Richard: Good communication, and compatible kinks.

Jayden: I have nothing to add to what Richard said…

2. What made the worst sex partner you’ve ever had so bad?

Richard: I wasn’t super attracted to them, and basically just had sex with them to prove a point. Neither of us really enjoyed it much. I don’t think it was their fault, so much as the situation.

Jayden: I mean, I got actually raped once. That was no picnic. Other than that, bad partners are just partners who don’t communicate well.

3. Who was the most physically attractive person you ever had sex with?

Richard: There was a redhead I dated for a year or so just after I finished undergrad. Just the right amount of curvy, and red hair was a nice change (though dark hair is still my favorite.)

Jayden: I struggled for a long time to answer this question because physical attractiveness isn’t really a thing for me. It’s mostly an emotional attraction for me. And hands down, that person is Richard.

4. How was it?

Richard: Pretty good. Our kinks were reasonably compatible. She had a weirdly tight vagina (in a bad way), but her asshole was usually lubed from it enough that we had a lot of anal.

Jayden: Excellent. We have great sex.

5. Who was the least physically attractive person you ever had sex with?

Richard: Probably the girl from answer 2. She was just kind “plain.” I don’t think there was anything specifically wrong with how she looked, but I knew her for years and I can’t picture her at all.

Jayden: One time, my ex and I had a 4some with a couple we met on a swinging site. It was…bad. There is no other way to describe it. I think the lack of emotional connection had a lot to do with it. And the guy never took off his socks, which was…weird.

6. Why did you do it?

Richard: I had sex with her friend, and for some reason that meant she felt I had to have sex with her. I think she was trying to prove she was better or something.

Jayden: I felt like I had to? I don’t really know. It wasn’t rape, and I don’t think anyone pressured me, I just felt like it was an expectation so I did it. If I were in a similar situation now, I’d just say no thanks and end the date, but at that point in my life (more than a decade ago), I didn’t.

7. How was it?

Richard: Kind of boring.

Jayden: Bad. Real bad.

Bonus: Describe a bad sexual experience you admit was your fault.

Richard: Funny answer- One time, I fell asleep and wound up shoving my elbow into the girl I was snuggling’s vagina. Serious answer- I was doing some face slapping with a partner, and accidentally hit them in the ear. That ended the scene pretty quickly. I aim much more carefully now.

Jayden: I have always been bad at telling partners what I want. I don’t know why. I write dirty fucking sex scenes, but I have trouble verbalizing it. Always have. So there have definitely been some times where something wasn’t what I wanted, but I didn’t say anything because…I don’t know why. I got shy, I guess.

TMI Tuesday: May 17th, 2022

This was a great TMI Tuesday so I thought I’d repost the questions. the late phoenix, gemma and others are still playing TMI Tuesday today. It will be interesting to compare their answer from ten years ago. 
Original here.

The inverted poll.

Oh. You didn’t mean inverted pole dancing? 

In many polls, you are asked if you strongly agree, somewhat agree, neither agree nor disagree, somewhat disagree or strongly disagree with some proposition. Today, we go the other way. We supply the answer, you supply the question.

1. Tell us something with which you strongly agree, or greatly like.

Jayden: Voting is important. Everyone should vote.

Richard: Cheddar Goldfish crackers.

2. Tell us something with which you somewhat agree, or somewhat like.

Jayden: I somewhat like Spring. Allergies suck but longer days are nice.

Richard: Original Goldfish crackers

3. Tell us something to which you are indifferent, or have no opinion.

Jayden: Candy. I can take it or leave it.

Richard: Pretzel Goldfish crackers

4. Tell us something with which you somewhat dislike or disagree with.

Jayden: Heat. I don’t like being hot. I want to be cold. The only exception is being super turned on, but even then–turn on a fan. I can’t cum if it’s too hot.

Richard: FLAVOR BLASTED Goldfish crackers

5. Tell us something with which you strongly disagree, or greatly dislike.

Jayden: Bugs. I get the creepy crawlies. I can’t help it.

Richard: Store brand Whale crackers

Bonus: What is an opinion held by others that makes you angry?

Jayden: That anyone has the right to tell others what they can/can’t do with their own bodies. It makes me fucking furious.

Richard: Goldfish Crackers are bad.

TMI Tuesday: May 10th, 2022

Be creative, play TMI Tuesday.

1. Write a 100 word story using the phrase “Kinky love triangle.”

Once upon a time, there was a kinky love triangle. And this was actually a triangle. Usually, when we hear about “love triangles,” we’re actually talking about Vs. It doesn’t go alllll the way around the triangle. But this one, this one did. Jack wanted to be dominant over Nancy. Nancy wanted to be submissive to Paul. Paul wanted to be submissive to Jack, or maybe dominant. He was confused. And round and around they went. Every kink scene ended with hurt feelings, until finally the triangle broke. Oops, that’s the story of how Jayden got divorced and married Richard!

2. When was the last time you snapped a nude pic of yourself? Where was the pic taken (e.g. bedroom, bathroom, etc.)?

Jayden: I’m sure it was for Richard, or document the pretty bruises he leaves me. Those are usually in the bathroom the morning after.

Richard: I think the last one was in my living room for Jayden. Probably like a year ago.

3. Finish this sentence: I felt overwhelmed with the urge _____ .

Jayden: to snuggle.

Richard: to sleep for like two days.

4. Finish this sentence: Using sex as a road map _____ .

Jayden: to good relationships.

Richard: you need AAA.

5. Do you tend to follow your desires and take risks?

Jayden: I do now. I didn’t before. But I took a leap with Richard and it worked out for me.

Richard: I sent my professor porn. It went great.

(Jayden: He did, and he freaked out about it for two weeks.)

Bonus: If you dig a deep hole through the center of the Earth starting from New Zealand, in what country will you emerge?

Richard: Without looking, I’m going to say Canada.

Jayden: Richard is probably right, but if not, maybe Greenland?

We were both wrong.

May 4 question – It’s the best of times; it’s the worst of times. What are your writer highs (the good times)? And what are your writer lows (the crappy times)?

Jayden: Oh, well, let’s see. The best times were writing times with friends. I can’t count the number of evenings I spent laughing, writing, laughing some more. My best friends and I co-wrote a story. We all sat with our laptops taking turns writing paragraphs. It was entertaining. Slow going, but entertaining. Then we would get distracted talking, but it was an amazing experience, and I hope that we’ll be able to get back to it.

The worst times were the deadlines. Self-imposed deadlines, for me, but still. Staying up late, getting up early, squeezing in words in every available moment. The times that I had to type with my eyes closed because I literally couldn’t keep them open anymore. But all worth it for the novels and short stories I’ve written, and the love I have with my writing friends. And of course, the fact that through my writing group, I met my partner. We blog together, we live together, and now we’re married. I wouldn’t have it any other way.

Richard: The best part of writing is when you finish a project. The worst part is any time anyone reads anything I write.

What are your writers highs and lows?

#AtoZChallenge Reflections!

WE DID IT!

Jayden: I honestly can’t believe we did it. Every post went up on time (and most went up at midnight). I think there was one I set up, but forgot to hit post, so it went up in the evening, but it was still the right calendar day! It was a lot of fun building this world with Richard. I would give him the crumbs of the idea and he would take it sometimes to places I never would have imagined. I loved everything he wrote, even when he claimed it wasn’t very good. Maybe I can get around to writing a novel myself now, but I am confident it won’t be nearly as funny as the prose Richard has come up with!

Richard: I had faith in us. Even when I wrote stupid things. I also thing this is the lowest post:smut ratio this blog has ever had, so that’s an exciting new adventure. It was fun to try a new way of writing stuff together with Jayden. We do it a lot, and sometimes it’s hard to find good ways to do it. I did entirely too many writing challenges in April this year, and I will now swear to never do more than one at a time again. I give it three months before I break it again.

TMI Tuesday: May 2nd, 2022

TMI Tuesday gets kinky. Come play!

You had a little break–a change of pace, now get back to TMI Tuesday!

1. If you could see two things change about your significant other what would they be?

Jayden: I’m not sure this is something I want to share publicly. Hmm. But I mean, he’s going to read it and he already knows it, so the first is that we’re still working the kinks out of communication issues (aren’t we all?) and sometimes I want him to see more good in the world.

Richard: I want her to make more time for her hobbies, and to have better feet.

2. What are two things you forgot to celebrate last year?

Jayden: I don’t know… I’m pretty good about celebrating things. I’m always down for a celebration!

Richard: Nothing? I try to avoid celebrating as much as possible.

3. Are you and your significant other both good at apologizing?

Jayden: I think so. I think Richard is better at it than I am. But we both make a concerted effort.

Richard: I think so.

4. What would you not admit on a first date?

Jayden: I don’t think I would admit to how much of a kinky slut I am. That’s a lot to dump on a new partner.

Richard: I dunno, I’m a terrible first date oversharer.

5. Is rebound sex empowering?

Jayden: I assume so? I don’t know that I’ve ever really had it. I imagine it would be, though.

Richard: (You totally had prebound sex, which is samish)

Not any more or less than any other sex.

Bonus: How do you mend a broken heart?

Jayden: Time, mostly. Sometimes it’s good to remember the reasons it was broken in the first place.

Richard: Find a project to focus on for a while.

Z is for Zoology #AtoZChallenge

For this year’s A to Z Blog Challenge, Richard and Jayden are worldbuilding! Using Rebekah Loper‘s book The A-Zs of Worldbuilding as a guide, we have teamed up to give descriptions of the world we’re creating, along with snippets of what it’s like to exist in the world. Enjoy!


Guest post by BMKerchner for Z is for Zoology:

As Richard and I talked about what to write for Zoology, we realized that we have a friend in our writing group who knows FAR more about actual dinosaurs than anyone we know. We asked them if they would be interested in writing something for us, and they were thrilled and promised not to write a novel. So we present to you (a much better account than we could have provided) a transcripted audio log.

Y is for Youth #AtoZChallenge

Background by Jayden for Y is for Youth:

Ah yes, youth. An awkward topic when we’re discussing kinky things. But in the world, the youth have to be somewhere. As previously mentioned in B is for Birth, women only get pregnant when they want to. (Hallelujah!) But, in order for there to be a society, children have to be born. In Adirlachson, children are born to women who want to bear children. They are raised together in communities and then sent to live in the community that best suits their personalities. It seems that when they are moved to Adrilachson (the FemDom/male sub community), no one really remembers where they were before. Sometimes someone will have a vague memory of being raised in a building somewhere, but most believe it’s just a part of Adrilachson reserved just for children. Little do they know that some of their childhood friends maybe never made it to Adirlachson… maybe they’re off somewhere else…

X is for Xenial #AtoZChallenge

Background by Jayden for X is for Xenial:

Talk about an x word I haven’t heard of… Xenial has to do with hospitality and greeting protocols. Well, in a D/s world, there are lots of protocols. There are some that exist throughout the community to ensure that all of the submissives are in compliance with their Dommes. Certainly, a Domme has the right to insist on a specific set of protocols with her submissive, but the community also has them.

Some examples are: submissives always kneel at their Domme’s feet unless they’re given permission to sit on the furniture; submissives always serve their Dommes first and won’t eat until their Domme has started eating; submissives always refill their Domme’s drinks without being asked. This is just scratching the surface of what is expected of the submissives.

W is for Warfare #AtoZChallenge

Background by Jayden for W is for Warfare

We’ve covered a lot of the military aspects of Adrilachson in our posts so far (J is for Judicial Systems, for example), but we haven’t discussed the use of psychological warfare yet. With the Dommes in power already, it’s a difficult structure to break. And when the men are turned on by the power of the Dommes, it becomes even harder for them to break out of their submissive shells. The psychological warfare can be used within their own ranks as well as to keep the community safe from dinosaurs. Here’s a short story on some of those ranks…

V is for Visual Arts #AtoZChallenge

Background by Jayden for V is for Visual Arts:

Their visual arts are their submissives and their bodies, primarily. Many people have tattoos and brands. They have become commonplace. And, of course, they have lots of porn. Whatever makes the Dommes happy, especially the ones at the top. The other “lesser” Dommes are generally happy to put their submissives into any porn others want, and are often happy to be stars themselves. They enjoy showing off their submissives’ skills and devotion.
