constraining, can actually be liberating to the spirit and immagination. It kind of channels energy in a way.
of Little Red Riding Hood. I had totally forgotten that the tale of Little Red Riding Hood contained a certain Alternative Lifestyle….a Crossdressing Wolf!
Another great Dark/Erotic Poetry Group meeting. A great range of poetry was read this week. We heard from present day poems, written by some of the members…
We heard from Victorian age poems…
Some Marquis de Sade, of course.
Finally, we heard from very ancient poetry about the goddess Inanna, surprisingly sexy stuff!
Isis and I even did a reading from James Joyce’s Ulysses. She has a wonderful reading voice, and I was happy enough to hold my own, reading the part of the harried Leopold Bloom.
Thank you everyone who participated, this group continues to encourage and foster my on again, off again love of reading.
Well, a very enjoyable time reading and hearing some erotic literature. Amanda is the wonderful new facilitator for this group and her love for books
will definitely make this group a success.
She read some poetry, including a very descriptive Victorian poem…
“There are weals over weals,
there are stripes upon stripes
there are cuts after cuts…”
(Charlie Collingwood’s Flogging by Etoniensis)
Even I read a short story on spanking!
Thanks for reminding me how wonderful the written word can be… for reminding me to take the time to read more also – both kinky and non-kinky topics.

This is a brand new group that we were trying out.
Only two persons attended the first meeting of this proposed group. Topics were: preferred genres of literature (fiction, poetry, drama) most suited to BDSM topics, and preferred types of BDSM activity to be discussed in any literature which might be produced. Also discussed were sources and forms of inspiration, and how to recognize them when they arise.
This group will not be continuing after Septemeber since I am unable to predict my availabilities due to weather. Perhaps we will pick this up again in the spring.

Nous avons essayé de créer un nouveau Groupe de Littérature BDSM.
Pour notre première rencontre, nous avions que deux participants. Nous avons parlé des
activités BDSM que nous préférons voir dans la littérature et quels genres de littérature sont
les plus appropriés selon nous pour parler de BDSM. Nous avons aussi parlé de nos sources
d’inspiration, et comment les utiliser lorsqu’elles se manifestent.
Les rencontres de ce groupe ne se poursuivront plus dès le mois de septembre, puisque la
météo m’empêche de déterminer quelles seront mes disponibilités. Nous allons peut-être nous
réunir à nouveau le printemps prochain.
