On three recent occasions, people have described me as “an admitted sex addict,” or some variant of that. Close readers of this blog know that my thinking on sex addiction, and on my relationship to it, is more nuanced (or muddied, or, muddled, or self-deceived) than that. I recently had an exchange with another blogger […]

Luna(tic)

Luna is difficult. She’s spoiled. She’s entitled. She’s an attention whore. Not infrequently, she e-mails me, “Give me attention!” I don’t think she’s jealous, exactly. But she wants to be my first call, wants to know that, if, for example, I was getting my cock sucked by the Rockette, it wasn’t at a time when […]

Before you interact with someone, you can reject her (or him) by simply swiping their photo off the lefthand […]

She’s late. I’m annoyed. Wait – I shouldn’t be annoyed. I should be grateful. She’s traveling a long distance, after all, to hand her body over to me to do with as I please. “Are you ok?” I text. Time passes. Finally, finally, she arrives. She doesn’t walk through the door I’ve been watching. She […]

Tinder strategies, part 2 – contact after matching

Tinder’s funny. Each person has up to six photos and about 200 characters in which to communicate enough about herself or himself to entice others. When two people have “liked” each other – have swiped one another’s pictures right, or tapped on the little heart under the picture – each person gets notified that “it’s […]

A package will arrive from Babeland. I thought about sending it to your office, but it’ll go home, instead. Don’t open it. Bring it, along with your vibrator, and a change of clothes. Check in to the hotel no later than 9:30 p.m. Instructions will arrive, by e-mail, by 10 p.m. Time will be of […]
