An Open Letter to BDSM Authors


If you’re going to give me a BDSM story, give me trust. Not a token mention of a contract someone signed, give me actual trust.

Give me a mutual respect between partners, a desire to not only serve and be served, but a genuine desire to please (the dom) and be pleased (the sub). Give me mutually agreed upon boundary pushing.

Oh and give me ALL your Aftercare! Petting, tickling, wound care (if applicable), blankets and water and tickling and snacks and cuddling and maybe even vanilla sexy times.

Give me Anal~retentive lists! Pros and cons of each and every aspect of the scene down to the sort of dialogue that is appropriate. Give me obsessive attention to detail, awkward glancing at lists out of the subs line of sight to ensure that everything is perfect, and equally obsessive checking in with your partner before, during, and after the scene. Because look, Dom/mes get nervous, ITS A THING!

Besides, a great scene is awesome, but it can always get better.

Give me your nervous beginners with desires darker than handcuffs and hot wax.

I want failed scenes—that end in laughter! “Wow, this was a GREAT idea on paper but ummm this is just all kinds of ridiculous in real life and let’s NEVER speak of this again. (Only we will. The puppet incident of 05? **wink**).

Give me reluctant negotiation and agreement on a scene that looks utterly ridiculous and laughable on paper but holy shit, in reality, this is incredibly hot. (Only Known as Stick-Shift night forever more).

Give me random insights into their day-to-day lives, a DOM/ME having to safe word because her anxiety isn’t making it possible to “hit that like it’s a baseball baby” today.

Think outside (or inside, or on top of, or strapped too) the box, my awesome authors! Give me your filthiest, your funniest, your most ridiculous!

But please, whatever you do, DON’T give me Inner Goddesses.

I feel like the one guy is saying “Just go tell Sally Benson that you like her!”

WHAT KIND OF WIZARD FISH IS THIS

DUDE THATS A BABY KAIJU

pew, pew!

SCIENCE SIDE OF TUMBLR URGENT

YOU CALLED!?
This fish is not actually spitting bioluminescent spit…it’s spitting out its bioluminescent food! Some clever scientist has put some bioluminescent ostracods in a tank with some little fish. When agitated, these ostracods (tiny shirmpthings) secrete chemicals that, when combined, emit light.
Why?
You’re seeing why right here. Just before the fish spits it out, those light chemicals are filling up the belly of the fish. Now, it isn’t poisonous or anything…but the fish wants NOTHING TO DO WITH IT because the fish has predators too. 
So yeah, if you’re a little fish and suddenly you’re FREAKING GLOWING, your lifespan has just gotten a lot shorter. 
As soon as the fish realizes that there’s light emanating from its belly, it pukes out the glowing juices (and the little shrimp). You can actually see the ostracod in this gif swimming away down toward the bottom of the tank happy as a clam…or a shrimp. 
Evolution is AWESOME.

This is a map of Asia. North Americans, you may notice this map is not solely comprised of Japan, Korea, China and Thailand. People in the UK, you may notice India is not  a continent. That is, if those of you who generalize entire continents can even pinpoint India on a map. 
Indians are Asian, gasp! And not all brown skinned people are Indian, also, gasp! There are an alarming amount of people, of all ages, from all backgrounds, who seem to be unable to process this.
I’m ethnically Asian. Since Asia is an extremely large continent, I could be from any number of countries. I am neither from India, China, Korea, Japan or Pakistan, yet not so surprisingly, I am still Asian. 
Yes, there are commonalities across regions, through the conflation of cultures, colonialism, globalization, transnationalism and movement of diasporas. Sometimes these are all the same thing. Rickshaws, rice and curry can be found across the continent.
But let’s not overgeneralize. You can also find Buddhists, Catholics, Muslims and Hindus across Asia. Cantonese Speaking Chinese Muslims! English Speaking Indian Jews! 
No, we are not all the same. Orientalism? (Please look up Edward Said for basic concepts) No thank you. 
So let’s not use umbrella terms, regarding Asians as a monolith while simultaneously denying the regional identity of millions of people- and how about we also not engage in xenophobia? 
Are you someone that thinks this way? Shame on you! You should perhaps invest in buying a map, and take a look at what countries are you know, where. 
Geography, people. It’s important. 

For anyone out there who might not be able to see this image, it is a coloured map showing Northern Asia, Central Asia, Western Asia, Eastern Asia, Southern Asia, and South-Eastern Asia. 
Central Asia consists of Afghanistan (debated), Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, and Uzbekistan. 
Eastern Asia consists of China, Hong Kong, Japan, Macau, Mongolia, North Korea, South Korea, and Taiwan. 
Northern Asia consists of Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia, and Russia.
South Asia consists of Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Maldives, Nepal, Pakistan, and Sri Lanka. 
South-Eastern Asia consists on Andaman and Nicobar Islands, Brunei, Cambodia, Christmas Island, Cocos Islands, East Timor, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar (Burma), Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, Vietnam. 
Western Asia consists of Armenia, Azerbaijan, Bahrain, Cyprus, Egypt (debated), Georgia, Iran (debated), Iraq, Israel, Joran, Kuwait, Lebanon, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Syria, Turkey, United Arab Emirates, and Yemen.

Y’all be derailing by speculating what’s western vs eastern Asia. It’s not the point. It’s not entirely about the actual map, it was the only one I could find at the time that even had remotely plausible regions. The point was to illustrate how large Asia actually is. And that’s it’s more than just China.
(Egypt, though, is not part of Asia. Sorry bout’ that. Anyone that thinks otherwise is following some fairly eurocentric anti-African rhetoric. Given that Egypt is a long standing mecca of technology, so to speak.)
*Not intersectionalfeminism, but to those reblogging.
