Examining Emotions: Gun Play

Posted: October 25, 2010 by Isaac Cross in Advice, Learn Something, Philosophy

Recently, there was a massive discussion in one of the forums that I follow regarding gun play. Specifically, the discussion began with a person asserting that gun play should never be taught at public BDSM events because “it can never be safe.” (Check out the comments for an example of this type of person)

Upon further examination, it is clear that we, as a society, have worked so hard to scare people about the dangers of guns that we forget that they CAN be handled safely and that, without bullets, a gun is just a hunk of metal, no more dangerous than a steel pipe.

Hang on tight, kids. This is a long post.

Recently, blogger Franklin Veaux created a “Map of Non-Monogamy” which has been circulating around the internet and gaining popularity. Personally, I like it. Visual representations of complex concepts are always helpful. But that said, I do have some criticisms, and I’m sure I’m not the only one.

Review: :: SKIP IT!

Posted: October 7, 2010 by Isaac Cross in Reviews, Reviews (Web)

Another site full of unfulfilled promises. Rating: A Big ol’ “F” Really nothing good here.

To be fair, it is (according to the site itself) still a beta. But you still have to pay to use it and my biggest issues won’t be fixed, I guarantee it. (more…)

Review: :: Potentially Good

Posted: October 6, 2010 by Isaac Cross in Reviews, Reviews (Web)

Update 11/11/11: Sadly, this site did not survive. I’ll leave the review up for comparison to other similar efforts. 

Update 10/10/10: I am been talking with the site owners and I really am optimistic about the site. They are working hard to improve the site and the membership numbers are multiplying rapidly. There is still no cost in site and the features of the site will make it very useful in time. Also, contrary to the comment, they do have a privacy policy which says that you are not required to give any personal information, but if you do, they will not communicate it to any third party.

Rating so far: B- (If there were more members, I would bump it up to a B+) (more…)

Birthday Abduction: After the Doors Closed

Posted: October 5, 2010 by Isaac Cross in Events

Cross’s note: See the two previous posts for information about the events leading up to this stuff. Everything described here is real, as it happened.

She was dropped onto the concrete floor in the middle of a large room. Immediately, she felt 20 hands begin to roughly handle her. Squeezing, pressing, rubbing, touching. She made no sound, just lay frozen. Before long, she was picked up onto her feet. She was shoved back and forth across a ring of people. Each one handling her roughly before pushing her off to the next person.
