Kinky Tip: How to hide your sex furniture hooks

38: Naughty in Nawlins and on boats

Play

We had a long chat with Bob Hannaford (half of the infamous "Bob & Tess" team), famous for creating spectacular events and cruises.

Bob talks about the swinging lifestyle, being naked (pretty much a requirement to survive in New Orleans) and having a great time at a convention. They stared with having 100 couples, now their events welcome more than 800 couples each.  Instead of creating one big event, they create a cluster of smaller activities, so that everybody can find their own thing.

The culture of New Orleans is very open to all walks of life.  Bob has been organizing a parade during Naughty in N’awlins for over 10 years, which has morphed into a "swingers pride parade".  It almost looks like a sexy political rally.

The only people who make less money when the swingers take over the own are the strippers.  But they do have strip-club take-overs, to great effect!

Well fuck you too, Google!

Google-censorDear Google,

We had a nice blog on the "blogger" service for many years, but it is time we break up.  We took the beatings long enough, without consent.

Reason 1: Google adsense is disallowed on adult sites

The terms and conditions for "Adsense", one of the most well-paying advertising platforms, prohibits it being used on our blogs.   This cuts us out of a major income opportunity.

Reason 2: Blocking advertising on "adult blogs"

In 2013, Google prohibited our blogs from having advertisers.  Adsense was already blocked, and this made sure we were not getting paid any other way.

Reason 3: De-ranking adult content from search results

Also in 2013, the search algorithms were changed to decrease visibility of pages having any sort of adult content (in word or in picture).  This made it even harder for us to be found.

Reason 4: Google killed all the "erotic" apps in the play store.

In 2014, we released our own podcast-app, in the Google play store.  It contained not a single picture, not a single dirty word.  However, we still got banned, because it played our podcasts.  The fact that there are a multitude of podcast applications out there that do the exact same thing didn't dissuade them.

Further irony: I built the Life On the Swingset app as well, using the exact same code, and it is still being sold.

Our application can now be found on the Amazon app store.

Reason 5: Blogs are made "private"

This is the latest:

Dear Blogger User,

We're writing to tell you about an upcoming change to the Blogger Content Policy that may affect your account.

In the coming weeks, we'll no longer allow blogs that contain sexually explicit or graphic nude images or video. We'll still allow nudity presented in artistic, educational, documentary, or scientific contexts, or where there are other substantial benefits to the public from not taking action on the content.

After this policy goes into effect, Google will restrict access to any blog identified as being in violation of our revised policy. No content will be deleted, but only blog authors and those with whom they have expressly shared the blog will be able to see the content we've made private.

Our records indicate that your account may be affected by this policy change. Please refrain from creating new content that would violate this policy. Also, we ask that you make any necessary changes to your existing blog to comply as soon as possible, so that you won't experience any interruptions in service.

Our SFCuties blog did not contain any nudity, but is still affected.

What does this mean?

Once a blog is made "private", it means that it basically has "fallen off the internet".  Only people who we manually invite will be to view it, if they try hard enough.   In other words: No more visitors.

Furthermore, those who running a podcast from their blog will have even more issues: If iTunes cannot access the site, the RSS feed becomes broken, and the music dies.

What are we going to do about this?  We have moved all the content from the other blogs into this one, so that it may live on, and will be killing off the Google properties.

We (and most in the sex positive community) got the message loud and clear, and are packing our bags and heading out of the Google apartment.

For further reading on the subject, I recommend the write up "Google's sex censorhip timeline" from the ever magnificent (and not mention incredibly sexy) Violet Blue.

 

Sex & the Heart

Did you ever wonder how much of a workout you get during a good session of sex?   I did.  And now, thanks to the Fitbit bracelet with built-in heart rate and activity monitor, anybody can find out.

 FitbitSessionYes, you can have your fuck-session graphed in glorious colors.

Notes:

  • All this activity burned about as much calories as in a small candy bar.
  • The part at the end where I am receiving a blowjob is clearly visible
  • Having an orgasm seems to be less impact-full to the heart rate than I expected

For optimal data gathering, I feel that both people should be wearing a heart rate monitor, so that we can compare activity levels.  Any geeky women out there that want to science?

XMas Special Crossover Episode

kinky_christmasWe have a surprise special XMas  episode (Just like "Dr. Who!"), as guests on "The Hidden Swing" podcast, where we go over BDSM basics and give a bunch of tips and tricks to improve Jim and Jen (and your) next time at the dungeon.  We touch upon etiquette, protocol, toys and how to find munches.  They decide that the first thing to get is a "neon wand".

Listen to us over at "The Hidden Swing".

35: Fetish & Fantasy 2: Journey to the Dark Side

Play
FF2014-1 Just like last year, we hit Vegas like rockstars 🙂  First there were a bunch of spectacular swinger parties, then  we spent the night on stage flogging and spanking the most
We welcome our newest member “Victoria Secret” from across the pond, who we just lured to the dark side. There was flogging of a moose, which may or may not have been president Obama.
Like any good sports team, we had a dedicated massage therapist Bob.  He works for “No shame massage” in the LA area.   To top off all the kinky stuff, we went to see “Wicked” the musical.
Did I mention there was lots of spanking of sexy people, and various swingers parties?  Reverent Jon managed to get into trouble by having sex in the BDSM room (again!).  He tried to compensate by having being kinky in the sex room.  Let's hope the organizers agree that it cancels each-other out.
Pictures from the event can be found in our Kasidie community albums.

34: Kink.com, Folsom Street Faire, adopting a pet

Play

upper floor SlaveAnother  "recap episode", where SinD and Jon try to remember all the adventures since last time!  First up is BondCon, a new conference at "The Armory", home of "Kink.com".  We meet various famous educators, but the misses was most impressed with "Thraje" and Cléo Dubois, and the single-tail whipping skills of "Disciple".

We visit Folsom Street Faire and interview random victims (to great amusement).  It turns out that bi-males do exist!

Misses also adopted a (human submissive) pet, and took her to a swingers party.  This put a spotlight on the differences between protocols and appropriate behavior between the swinger and BDSM/kink communities.    In the later, there is a more strict enforcement of the "ask for consent first" rule, which sometimes gets forgotten by the experienced swingers.  Also,  one has to make sure that one scene does not take so long that one doesn't get laid.  "Cock-blocking" may have occurred, and  Jon got the woman with "worlds most impressive ass" in trouble.

We use Google Calendar to schedule play-dates/training sessions.  Does that mean we are now poly?
