Two years ago today, I met this man for coffee…
And y’all know where that went. 🙂 Today, I have a top, a protector, a friend who takes care of me. Sometimes, we all just need to be taken care of, no? Well, I know I do, anyway.
I got to see him briefly yesterday — I had driven 40 miles to meet with my finance guy for lunch, and Steve’s house was between that locale and my place, so I stopped by on my way home and saw his house for the first time. No play, though… he had to rush out and I needed to get home and work. But we will celebrate our two-year anniversary this coming Tuesday.
And next month, I will be celebrating 18 years with this character:
I’ve had a lot of ups and downs lately; more downs, unfortunately. But despite that, today, I am feeling grateful. I have good people in my life, and I am loved.
In other news… Unless you’ve been under a rock the past couple of days, you’ve noticed the mini-tsunami rolling through the spanko blogosphere — the trailer for the “Fifty Shades of Dreck” movie! No, I’m not going to link it here; it’s already been linked ad nauseam. It was even on the Tonight show. I did watch it, though. As predicted, even the trailer is cliché-riddled. The two leads are predictably and perfectly gorgeous (because God forbid we should pay $13 to watch two average-looking schnooks engage in wannabe BDSM). Although Dakota Johnson (Anastasia) is doing her best “I’m-really-pretty-but-I’m-dressed-down-to-look-frumpy-and-insecure” bit. You can see that her hair is in a nondescript ponytail in the beginning, but you know that hair will come down and fly erotically around her ecstatic face sooner or later. Meh. What crap.
But of course, the Missionary Mommies who devoured the books will flock to the theater like demented sheep to sit and squirm in their seats, shoveling popcorn in their faces while dampening their panties over Jamie Dornan (Christian Grey). heavy sigh
Oh, well. Guess I’d better brace myself — if there’s this much buzz over a freaking trailer, I don’t even want to think about when the movie actually opens.
And finally… I knew I forgot something when I wrote about fantasies gone bust the other day. I knew it, and yet I couldn’t come up with it. However, it came back to me this morning, and it’s too good not to share, albeit a little late.
Anyone remember Shadow Lane’s classic oldie, Spoiled Rotten, with Keith Jones and Tanya Foxx? Still one of my favorites, rich with fantasy fodder. For me, one of the hottest scenes was when Keith chases Tanya around a pool table, then finally traps her and bends her over the table for a spanking/strapping. From the first time I saw that scene (and I’ve lost count of how many times total I’ve seen it), I fantasized about being spanked over a pool table.
Guess what? It happened, about 10 years ago. I was visiting my play partner at the time, and he was spanking me in every room in the house. When we got to the den, I saw the pool table and my eyes lit up. Yes! Yes, please!
It was uncomfortable as @#$%. The side of the table dug into my hipbones; a pillow would have helped, but really, in the movies, who stops to get a pillow or whatever to make those steamy scenes more comfortable? The table, despite the felt covering, was very hard under my face. And the worst part? It was like an echo chamber — every blow he imparted reverberated through the table and went right into my ear. So much for that fantasy!
Have a great weekend, y’all. Oh, and welcome back to our beloved Bonnie!
Happy Anniversary to you and Steve! And, Happy Early Anniversary to you and John! 🙂
Echos (echoes?) from pool tables are just way to real for inclusion in Fifty Fathoms Deep. But so real life … Love real. 50 won't be.
Our last home pool table was 20 years ago (pre her kink acceptance) … and we have better uses for our bucks now. I bet my wife is glad to rely on your field test without doing one of her own!
Best of the weekend.
Jay — thanks! John's and my anniversary always coincides with Shadow Lane, so it's extra fun. 🙂
Jon — I actually love pool. We had a pool table when I was growing up and I spent many hours playing on it. Haven't done so in many years, though; have probably lost my skill with it.
Wishing you good times on your anniversaries and many years of bliss to come.

How precisely did you create that interesting echo? Just aslkng.
But: congrats with the two (I would have bet it was much more) and the 18!
As soon as you said pool table I knew what the problem was going to be. LOL There are some pieces of furniture/game tables that do NOT work for kink. As far as 50 Shades of Stupid, the women are going to have a problem with the guy in it if his pants don't hang off of his hips. Ever since I read those reviews about it I can't get that part out of my head because it was so STUPID! The whole thing is going to suck.
Mouse — thank you. 🙂
MrJ — I think you can figure it out. 🙂
Jen — oh gawd, the hanging pants. And my other favorite: the intoxicating smell of his body wash.
As bad as the trailer looks (and the movie promises to be), I think this may be the first time in my life where I think the movie might be better than the book. That said, I certainly won't pay $13 to see it in the theater…or even less to rent it later.
My favorite movie scene also comes from Shadowlane, but with you (Erica) and Keith Jones. I can't remember the name of the film at the moment. Too bad they don't show things like that in the theater.
Lizzie — you may be right. Sadly, it's a pretty low bar, considering what a crapfest the book was.
Really, that's your favorite? 🙂 That was Naughty Secretaries Week Part 2, my first video ever.
50 Shades of Gray will make a lot of money and give women female wet dreams. Happy Anniversary.
Hi Erica — Happy 2nd Anniversary to you and Steve 🙂 I Love your pics, You and John are the PERFECT couple 🙂 I think 50 shades of Gray I mean CRAP is not worth watching either.I have a lot of favorites of you and Keith Jones 🙂 I Love The School Masters Revenge 🙂 Wishing you and John a WONDERFUL weekend. Much Love and hugs from naughty girl Jade
Suddenly this 41 years married man feels ancient.
Congratulations on your relationships.
Erica, remember EIGHTEEN, means HI, (Good Luck) in Yiddish. So congratulations. As for '50 Shades of Grey'. Please give it a chance. It puts S&M on the 'map' so to speak, just like the movie 'Secretary', did a few years ago. XXX Luv ya..
Congratulations to you both!!!
I was literally rolling on the couch laughing at the 50 Shades trailer. It was SO over-dramatized. “My tastes are very SINGULAR.” *Cue a shot of a blindfold and an orgasmic outburst.”
That being said, I so do hope they have a blooper reel for that movie. I'd be more interested in seeing that.
Happy anniversaries and thanks for the welcome from a recycled newbie!
I've had fantasies go both ways. Beach sex? Uh, no. Secluded mountain cabin on a snowy night? Oh yeah.
As for FSoG, I have no interest in seeing the movie and I didn't read the books. However, I think Six has a point about introducing those “missionary mommies” to new ways to play. Some will move beyond the goofiness and discover what we already know. Some good may yet come from this ridiculous franchise.
Robert — yes, it will.
Jade — I was lucky, getting to work with Keith so many times. 🙂
John — forty-one years?? Awesome!
Six — respectfully, I disagree. BDSM was already on the map. What 50 Shades put on the map was a totally skewed and unrealistic (and even dangerous) version of BDSM.
Kelly — thanks, sweetie.
Autumn — bloopers are always hilarious. I've seen a few from my own videos. 😀
Bonnie — in the books, Anastasia was a fool and Christian was a damaged stalker. This is not a good intro to our world. (sigh) But I know, I'm hollering into the wind here.
It's so good to have you back!
I think it may have been the first I saw that had the dynamic that appealed to me – with people who actually enjoyed what they were doing. My all-time favorite movies are probably the series you and Keith did that was written by Bethany.
Hooray for anniversaries! I do not plan on seeing the 50 Shades movie and I didn't read the books either.
Lea — I flipped through the first one and read enough to get the gist. No more was needed.
