Friday, November 26th, 2010

SBI is offering their annual special buy one get one free holiday promotion. This is the best deal they offer.

Spanked by eBay

Wednesday, July 28th, 2010

A few hours ago, eBay removed my listing for a 60-minute phone consultation. The last time I checked, that auction had received dozens of bids and was up to $1000. There were still 2-1/2 days left in the auction, so I suspect the final price would have gone much higher. I checked my email and […]

Instead of working week after week, you alternate between one intensive work week followed by one vacation/personal week. This method isn’t very […]

Thursday, January 7th, 2010

I want to share some thoughts on an interesting dynamic I’ve been observing as I continue to explore domination and submission (D/s) with my consensual slave partner. A key aspect of personal growth is that in order to grow, we must stretch beyond our comfort zones and experience something new. If we stay within our […]
