It's been a busy month (more on that later!), though I did receive the happy news that the 7th issue of Disciplinary Tales, a collection of stories by DJ Black, has been released by LSF Publications. For those, like me, who are missing his A Voice in the Corner blog, this is a lovely … Continue reading Book of the Month: Disciplinary Tales (Issue 7!) by DJ Black
Things have been busy here! Hard to believe that all of May (and most of June) have passed without a post- and to top it off I nearly missed my blogiversary today. The draft post-folder is bulging though. Recently I've had the pleasure of getting to know a few more new spanky friends (including … Continue reading Five
One of my favourite aspects of attending kink events is the opportunity to observe, learn, and try practices outside of my primary interest in spanking (there has been plenty of that as well, though 🙂 ). This is how I came to be aware of- and grow to enjoy electroplay. Even now, I'm not … Continue reading In Other News. . .

For those, like myself, missing the more regular infusions of DJ's fiction from his Voice in the Corner site, the new stories made for a lovely surprise. From … Continue reading Book of the Month: Abraham Heights
2017 was a very hectic year. CLASS has continued to evolve, and is a constant source of fun, friends, and occasional frustration. A minor health scare earlier in the year has helped me to refocus on taking care of myself. I've spent more time on a vanilla hobby, which has led to much travel and … Continue reading The Anti-Resolutions
I fell back into my Christmas card-sending habit this year. (Or perhaps it might be more accurate to say the habit fell back onto me, as the unsent cards came tumbling down in a glittery mess from the closet top shelf during a recent attempt at cleaning). A lot can change in a year. Based … Continue reading Glittery Greetings and Gifts of Trust
In my ongoing survey of BDSM non-fiction, Playing Well with Others has by far impressed me the most. Everything about the book- from the content to the typeface to the organisation - I found very satisfying. There are a few questions I like to ask when reading introductions to BDSM that try to appeal to … Continue reading Non-Fiction Book of the Month: Playing Well with Others
