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.

The Insecure Writer’s Support Group #IWSG

The Insecure Writer's Support Group

If you’d like to chime in and let us know your answers to the questions or drop a link to your post if you’re participating, please do so in the comments! And check out the IWSG website for more answers!

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!

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!


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

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

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!


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.

U is for Universe #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!


Background by Jayden for U is for Universe:

Since this is still Earth, a lot of these questions have already been answered by reality. Everyone in Adirlacson is aware of celestial bodies and the larger universe, but there’s been no contact with any other worlds or anything like that. All of the world was explored, or at least almost all of it, once upon a time, but since the dinosaurs came back and global warming happened, life has changed drastically.

With the Adrilacson community, the average person doesn’t think anything outside that community exists, but those higher up know that there are other communities throughout the country and world that have different structures. But they don’t want their submissives to know that. Most of their submissives are happy and satisfied. Those that aren’t, well… maybe you’ll find out more of that in the book.

T is for Time #AtoZChallenge

Background by Jayden for T is for Time:

They have the same four seasons that exist in our current timeline. Their Spring and Fall are short, though because the extremes have mostly taken over with the effects of global warming. They’re able to sustain their farming underground though, as well as preserve a lot of their crops. Other than global warming fucking with the weather, their timekeeping is very much the same as what exists currently. 

Thought: Fertility as a time thing? Breeding scene?

S is for Science #AtoZChallenge

Background by Jayden for S is for Science:

Well now. I know you’re expecting to hear about the science of how the dinosaurs were made. Well, how could I disappoint our adoring fans? It was just like in Jurassic Park, and the difference is (spoilers) that the dinosaurs run loose at the end like in Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom. We have until June 10th to find out how they resolve that one…

R is for Religion #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!


Background by Jayden for R is for Religion

Honestly, this is one of the most difficult things for me to write, worldbuilding-wise. When I write real-world fiction, I tend to stay away from religion. As I mostly write smut, I try to write it so that anyone reading can see themselves in the main character (or side characters, etc.). If you notice, I don’t give a lot of physical descriptions of my characters on purpose. I focus more on how they’re feeling and how someone else makes them feel. That allows my reader to get more into the headspace of the main character.

I feel like religion takes away from that. So between the fact that religion often has Opinions about sex and the fact that I want all readers to be able to access my writing, I generally stay away from it.

So rather than talk about religion in this world (which won’t be featured in the novel), I thought I would demonstrate what I’m talking about with my descriptions.

TMI Tuesday: April 19th, 2022

TMI Tuesday gets kinky. Come play!

Bind ~ Blind ~ Tease

1. Select a kink. You’re a first-time visitor to a dungeon, and you are ‘center stage’ because a sizeable crowd has gathered to watch you:
a. Writhing from bare-hand spanking
b. Restrained on an X-cross receiving a whipping
c. Dangling in air wrapped in an ornate web of rope
d. Naked on a floor mat with 3 people pleasuring you

Jayden: e. Yes please? If I have to choose, I’d probably pick a. But b has its merits… But it would be up to Richard, ultimately…

Richard: D is tempting, but I think C is the most fun. Assuming I get to try to wriggle out of it. Good way to make a first impression.

2. If you selected #4 in the last question, tell us how you are pleasured?

Jayden: I didn’t select it, but I’m going to tell you anyway. Let’s see… three people pleasuring me… I would want one licking my pussy, one playing with my nipples, and one to make out with. Can I clone Richard, please?

Richard: 4 wasn’t a choice/letter. I think I’ll take one person licking my ass, one on my balls, cock, and one bossing them around and lending a hand as needed.

3. Bind, blind, tease. Write a 50-word story and include those 3 words.

Jayden: My desire is blinding. My skin feels like it is on fire. I wonder if it’s warm to the touch, or if it just feels that way. But I can’t check. The bindings on my limbs are too tight for me to move. My Richard is such a fucking tease.

Richard: I don’t know why they thought blind-folding (totally counts) me was going to stop me from getting out. That is the whole point of binding (also counts!) someone, right? To tease them until they get out and try to get revenge.

4. Sex Doll play: The ‘doll’ is the human version of an inflatable sex doll.
The ‘doll’ must lie completely still on a bed and let their partner have at it. The partner is free to control the doll’s body and movements, and do what they please. Which will you be–the doll or the doll-master? Why?

Jayden: The doll. Richard and I have done something similar once or twice. He likes to hear me scream too much to make me be silent often, but it can be sexy.

Richard: Yeah, I’ll be the doll-master. I had an ex who was really into this kink and it can be fun. I’m no good at staying quiet anyway.

Q is for Queens #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!


Background by Jayden for Q is for Queens:

As everything is in Adirlachson, the government is run by the Dommes. There is one who is in charge, though she has a number of advisory positions that other women hold. She has other positions such as security, agriculture, architecture, and so on, making sure that all aspects of their society can continue on. When she chooses to step down (or in the event of her death) one of her advisors will be promoted to the head position. In this way, the same group has stayed in power, replacing women as they’ve left their positions. The woman in charge always chooses the women to fill all of the advisory positions.

Although the government has been unchanged as long as anyone can remember, they have been fair enough to all of the women that they don’t want to usurp the group in power, and the men are happy to serve the women in the society. When they aren’t, the loyal men run them out of town and they’re never heard from again.

P is for Plants #AtoZChallenge

Background by Jayden for P is for Plants:

We mentioned a little bit about the plants that Adirlachson has before (let’s see if we can keep our details straight, haha!). They have some underground areas where they grow some crops using artificial light and water-based plants. For the plants that they can’t grow that way, they built up some fields with high walls to keep most of the dinosaurs and other animals out, though, of course, the flying ones can still get in. Richard shared with us about the “scarecrows” in F is for Food not too long ago.

O is for Oblectation #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!


Background by Jayden for O is for Oblectation:

The adults have many games that they enjoy. They have managed to keep alive some card games from the distant past as well as create new ones. But mostly, the Dommes play with their submissives. They have found a variety of games that they can play with their boys, from betting on races and wrestling to finding out who can withstand the most pain or who can cum the fastest.

N is for Nuptials #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!


Background by Jayden for N is for Nuptials:

Well, given that women rule the community, they make the decisions about relationships. The submissive men can certainly ask, but it is entirely at the Domme’s whim to decide if she’ll give a collar to a submissive, and how many men she’ll give a collar to. Then those promises are made via contract in ceremonies where members of the community gather to watch the promises made.

M is for Military #AtoZChallenge

Background by Jayden for M is for Military:

We already learned about the BEARS (Bondage Enforcement Armed Response Squad). They make up the majority of the military in Adirlachson. The highest officers, of course, are some of the dominant women. They direct the military into any action that needs to be taken, but given that the community is mostly hidden underground, it’s all internal struggles. They do monitor the surrounding area closely to be sure that no dinosaurs or (dare we speculate) people who don’t conform to the values of Adirlachson intrude on their community.
