Then and Now-TMI Tuesday, October 23, 2012

1. What one part of your sex life today would most surprise the 17 year old you?
Actually, that I'm not as sexually active as I could be.  My disabled wife went through a three to four year time we refer to now as "the dark time" (when she was very sick) so we're just starting to get back together.
2. What one thing might shock that younger you?
That I'm as into BDSM as I am.  While I had some fantasies of BDSM when I was young, I don't think my 17 year old self would think I'd ever really indulge them.
3. What part of the younger you’s (not necessarily at age 17) sex life do you look back on with the most nostalgia?
Um, none of it.  Until about 2000, I have to say I was... pathetic. 
4. Is there anything in the younger you’s sexual ambitions or fantasies you have not yet fulfilled?
Considering my previous answer, no.  I have probably exceeded all ambitions and/or fantasies of my younger me.
Bonus:  Give your 17 year old self a piece of sexual advice.
Don't be so shy-go for it!  You can find a girl/woman that will want to do anything you want to do with (or TO) them!

A new motto?

I brought home some Chinese take-out for lunch today.  One of the fortune cookies was crushed and the fortune was just lying there in the bag.  We're collecting the fortunes for our granddaughter but we both think this one is a bit too... "mature" for her, but it fits just right in a setting like this.

Sounds right to me!

I'm back!

Welcome to my new home!  I've decided to finally activate this new blog for my general BDSM fiction and commentary.  I'm going to repurpose the old "home", A Sakura's Petals, as my place to publish a story I've been working on for a while-"Sakura's Petals", a love story with a generous helping of BDSM and Kinbaku (A.K.A. Shibari).  I'll let the old blog stay up for a while as I get ready to introduce the story and I've moved all the already-published posts to this blog.  I hope you'll enjoy both.

(Gardener's note:  I know it's been a while, friends.  RealLife® reared its ugly head and has prevented me from adding much more that a few Flash Fiction Friday stories to this blog.  I'm back, however, and to start, I've got a story inspired by a picture I came across on a Tumblr site.  I hope you like it!)

The daylight peeked through the window, waking Gwen. She felt as much as saw her boyfriend, Ronnie, laying next to her. Gwen thought about the night before-the urgent, hungry need that engulfed them both. They had fallen upon each other like two starving people, sucking and fucking till the wee hours of the morning. Gwen realized it was time for her to collect her clothes and let herself out.

Car Show

(Gardener's note: This was an easy challenge this week!  Today's challenge-between 100 and 135 words (excluding the title), with the phrase "the scent of (noun)" somewhere in the body of the story and based on the photo below.  Panserbjørne hosts  Flash Fiction Friday..  Go check out his blog to see who else played.)

I'm polishing the last piece of chrome on the passenger's door of my just-restored '55 Chevy. The car show starts in two hours.

Crouched down beside the car, I hear the driver's door slam and feel the car rock a bit. I look up to see Janet, my girlfriend, stick her head out of the open window. “I love these old cars” she says, smiling seductively.

A Weekend Alone-Flash Fiction Friday, May 18, 2012

(Gardener's note: I didn't think I could come up with a story this week but one came to me just a few minutes ago as I was preparing breakfast.  Sorry it's a little late-if it's any consolation, I've been running late all week! Today's challenge-between 66 and 122 words (excluding the title), with the phrase "rough and scratchy" somewhere in the body of the story and based on the photo below.  Panserbjørne is back hosting  Flash Fiction Friday..  Go check out his blog to see who else played.)

The kids were at Grandma's so we had the weekend alone for once.  We planned to go out for dinner and a movie and were rushing around trying to get ready.  It had been a crazy week, so things were not where they should be.  Connie and I kept running up and down the stairs to get this or take that where it needed to be.

Along the Seawall-Flash Fiction Friday, May 11, 2012

(Gardener's note: Again, apologies for being a bit late.  Today's challenge-under 100 words (excluding the title), with the phrase "hint of mischief" somewhere in the body of the story and based on the photo below.  Panserbjørne is back hosting  Flash Fiction Friday..  Go check out his blog to see who else played.)

There was a hint of mischief in the air as she walked beside the seawall. Young or old, male or female, no one could resist her aura.

Truth or Dare: Flash Fiction Friday, May 4, 2012

(Gardener's note: Another Friday, another FFF Challenge from Ram The Sunlover.  The challenge this time: 171-175 words or less, using somewhere in the story the word payment  and writing about the following picture.  Family issues prevented me from getting this done before now.)

She had planned it all out, researching it to make sure it would work. She had rehearsed it five or six times, to make sure she could get it done in the time allotted while getting it right and being able to get out of it. The only remaining task was to position the camera, record and upload the session.

The Next Step: Flash Fiction Friday, April 20, 2012

(Gardener's note: Another Friday, another FFF Challenge from Ram The Sunlover.  The challenge this time: 129 words or less, using somewhere in the story a word that, when spelled backwards, has a different meaning  and writing about the following picture.)

My butler brought her into the room. Blindfolded in the limo, she knew not where she was. My chauffeur had taken a winding route back to the estate. She only knew I would be at the end of the journey.

You Just Never Know...

(Gardener's note:  A bit of a change of pace-I hope you enjoy it!)

Let me get this out there right off. I'm a Christian-I always have been, I always will be and I am not ashamed of it. Why am I so emphatic about it? It's because, if you are reading this, you are probably more in touch with my other side... my kinky, slave/wife owning, BDSM side. You'll probably wonder how I can reconcile both sides of my personality. Well, that's another story for another day. Today I want to relate a funny incident that happened a while back.

Tony and Sandy: Part 2

(Gardener's note: It's been a busy week for me, and I finally have the chance to continue on with the story of Tony and Sandy.  Enjoy!)

 Tony looked around to see where he could place Sandy. He decided to bend her over the spanking bench to start. He steered her over to the bench and shoved her over it, so she was just about doubled over. “Spread your legs, bitch” Tony ordered, then turned to her toy cabinet to retrieve some items. He came back with a set of cuffs and a collar. Tony knelt down and proceeded to secure the ankle cuffs on both feet, then took the attached double chain snaps and secured them to eyebolts on the legs of the bench. Sandy's legs were now obscenely stretched

Love, Hate, and Guilty Secrets: TMI Tuesday, April 10, 2012

We never mind telling people about things we love or hate, but how about the things we love, but would hate for anyone to find out about?
Well, it’s time to free yourself of that fear!
For each of the categories below, list one thing you love, one that you hate, and then, take a deep breath and tell us something you hate to admit you love.
You’ll feel better for it!

Tony and Sandy: Part 1

(Gardener's note: When I started this blog,it was to present a story I had been working on for a while.  I asked for a little advice from a "talented amateur" (think Emma Peel in The Avengers... the TV version, not that dreadful train wreck of a film.)  As she confirmed my suspicions,  I put that project on the back burner and decided to relaunch this blog to get some more practice on shorter projects.  However, I feel some elements of that project can stand on their own (with a little editing.)  This is the first part of one of them. Let me know what you think.)

Tony wasn't sure of what he was going to do to Sandy just yet. He didn't like elaborate and detailed scripts for his scenes. Being impromptu and seizing on opportunities was more his style, and Sandy just couldn't get enough of his style. Tony always seemed to know how to push the emotional envelope with his submissive while stopping just before the “line.” Sandy especially loved not knowing what was going to happen. She really got off off on the uncertainty and even fear as to what would happen next.

Flash Fiction Friday: Terry's Dilemma

(Gardener's note: I've been hoping to get to do something like this, so I'm glad the FFF Challenge is continuing, courtesy of Ram The Sunlover.  The challenge this time: 255 words or less, using "too many" somewhere in the story and writing about the following picture.  Here is my first effort.) 

Image: source unknown

Terry found himself in a position he had wound up in too often. Older women were always hitting on him; and by old, he meant at least as old as his mother. Some might say it was wrong or even sick to be attracted to older women. They didn't know what Terry knew.

Stress Relief

(Gardener's Note:  I'd like to introduce you to George and Sharon.  They've been living inside my head for a long, long time.  Now that I have this nice little corner of the Internet, I figured it was time to let them come out and play.  As we go on, we'll learn more about this very interesting couple, but for now, let's just peek in on a typical (?) day:)

It was a brutal day for Sharon. What started out as a quiet Thursday went completely sideways when news broke of potential scandal involving one of her clients at the marketing agency where she worked. She spent most of the morning and the entire afternoon in emergency meetings, barking orders at her staff and fielding calls from her panicked client. She dictated press releases, scheduled interviews and got her client’s side of the story out as quickly as she knew how. By the time the national news programs had aired on the East coast, Sharon had gotten her client back out in front of the scandal-for now.

He watched her come in and sit at the bar-the same stool she sat at every time. She ordered her drink and pulled out a ten, laying it on the bar. He had observed her so carefully he knew everything she would do in the next thirty minutes, although he would dictate how the last twenty went.


I'm trying something that's new to me.  Writing BDSM-themed erotica, that is.  I've gotten tired of all the hack stuff that looks like it was written with one hand on the keyboard and one hand on the joystick, ifyouknowwhatImean.  I'll tell you, it is tough to be literate, grammatically correct and erotic, but I've decided to give it a whirl.

If you like what I read, let your friends know (and I hope we become friends.)  If you don't, let me know, for how else will I improve if I don't have feedback.

As for me, I'm old enough to qualify for many (but not all) senior discounts.  I am a dominant, but due to my slave/wife having had severe medical issues the past five years, I've been a caregiver more than an owner.  We're looking to return to our former dynamic, but we know there's a long road ahead.
