Pieces of Passion 4 – Create a Story Together and Porn-oetry

Last week I was hanging out with Catherynne M. Valente as part of her book tour for her newest novel, Palimpsest, a tale of a sexually transmitted city that spreads love to love, passion to passion, map to map. It got me thinking of some of my background in the arts, and specifically about the world of the Surrealist movement. I was hit by a fun game I once did with my first girlfriend, Caroline, many many years ago during the first wave of my obsession with the Surrealists.

Pieces of Passion 3 – Gloves as Sensation Play

Today’s Pieces of Passion is brought to you by the fact that I just had an incredibly hot scene with someone very near and dear to my heart and his sweetheart on the floor of the dungeon at Beat Me in St Louis- he was wearing gloves, I was not, and she went from clothed to nude, lips, teeth, and hands, kisses and lust and me doing a backbend at one point to hold her up on all 4s and all kinds of good stuff with not a point of penetration in sight… Pieces of Passion Piece #3- Gloves as…

Pieces of Passion 2 – Love Notes

Pieces of Passion Piece #2- Love Notes In our culture of text messages and fast food, we have forgotten much of the art of the love note. More than a card picked up at the store to be given only on special occasions, love notes can take a thousand forms. Consider doing one of the following to remind your sweetie how special they are to you: -Hand-making paper, or buy nice paper and make your own card. -Write notes by hand (unless your handwriting is abyssmal, but then still sign it by hand). -Hide a note in their briefcase or…

Pieces of Passion 1 – Introducing PoP & Blindfolds in Bondage

Late in the night I was being driven by justbeast and yuki_onna were diving me to my hotel for Beat Me in St Louis having spent the day having fun all around town with s00j and K and the Rev and his Lady… and an idea came to pass, and this is the idea. To share ideas, thoughts and brainstorms of sex, kink, play, erotic authenticity, passion and sexy fun. Daily. Pieces of them. I plan to eventually put up a tip jar, and have a balance to it that are longer concepts and rants called Sutras of Soul (SoS),…

Edible Alchemy: Comfort Garlic Toast

Sometimes we need to nurture, comfort and care for ourselves if we hope to serve the world to our fullest.  A lot of femmes I meet seem to fogret this fact- we are the lover, parents, warriors and poets upon whom Atlas’ load is balanced.  Without us the world would crumble and fall, without us we have this feeling the turning would stop and gravity would let everything we care about fly away into the ether. One of my comfort foods is what I have deemed Comfort Garlic Toast.  I have made variatons of it since I was a child. …

Edible Alchemy: Asparagus-Bacon Omelets for 3

I personally believe that cooking is more than an act that enables us to feed our bodies. It nourishes our souls, allows us to offer love to our partners, connect with our friends, and dance in the decadence between the bites. We are questing magi with olive oil and garlic in hand, shamans armed with flour and nutmeg to ward off angry spirits. Thus I believe in the art of edible alchemy. We have the power to transform base ingredients to a higher purpose, and in my recipes I prefer to thus share more than the ingredients that went in.…

Receiving Puja

I started this essay on the flight home from Denver, but was unable to complete it until today. I think because i had to authentically read it again today and thank the universe and myself again today. Today has been hard, but I am so blessed. So blessed. Receiving Puja Its not often in my life that I have an opportunity to view myself in full power, grace and vulnerability, and yet I have been told I have had more of these moments than others do. I am told of people who walk through life blind. I meet souls who…

Lee Harrington “Gender Reassignment Surgery” December 2006 Feck.com.au interviewed me in Melbourne, Australia about whether I would have FTM Gender Reassignment Surgery- I have since had top surgery, but this was about 8 months beforehand… but this was a very emotionally painful interview.
