February Photofest – Day 6

M is for…
Merry Masochist

Today is Sunday – and it is week 565 of Sinful Sunday, the incredibly popular weekly meme hosted by friend and fellow blogger Molly, of Molly’s Daily Kiss. The first Sunday of the month is always a prompt day, with today’s prompt being the Letter M: “the idea of this prompt is to pick a word that, in this case begins with the Letter M and create an image inspired by it.” (You can see all the participants for the letters A – L by clicking here.)

I haven’t participated much in Sinful Sunday the last few years, I’m sad to say, but I’ve really been enjoying getting my toes wet again in my blog through February Photofest, and it seems only natural to link up the two memes. Too, it helps enormously to have a partner that appreciates me blogging, and in fact insists on it as part of my mental/emotional health regimen.

So yeah…it’s hard to find a better word for the letter M than masochist. And adding that “merry” on there just seems to fit, as I am often smiling and laughing while playing. Not always – I also crave the dark, moody, breaking-me-down kinds of scenes – but more often than not lately my scenes seem to have an element of merriment or playfulness. Perhaps because the space I play in emotionally is lighter? Or more like playing as a bottom? With Sir we are still exploring each other as playpartners and as D/s partners – we are learning about each other and where our edges, boundaries and desires lie; with my Canadian it is without the D/s but from a place of deep affection and respect for each other as Top and bottom. Both spaces call to the masochist in me, but she is a delighted, joyful masochist (even when processing the pain – perhaps even more so then.) Processing pain as something positive, even pleasurable, is what makes me a masochist; embracing it with a joyful attitude is what earns the “merry” moniker.

So, first, my February Photofest image. M (the Canadian) called this “hot-crossed buns” which name I love, and the capturing of which, while exquisitely painful, was also a lot of fun. It doesn’t look like much, but trust me – they had to be hard strikes on a cold ass to get the stripes to come up – ouch! And…yumm!

The perfect panties for a little X-ing-with-a-cane action!

This second image is for Sinful Sunday – after the above image M took it upon himself to administer my daily “maintenance” spanking via cane, and the masochist in me took over, reveling in the searing, blooming pain in each strike of the cane.

Now that’s what I’m talking about…

February Photofest – Day 4

“Our willingness to wait reveals the value we place on what we’re waiting for.”

Waiting for Sir

Unfortunately I’ll be waiting awhile – I’m off to Mexico to spend a week, maybe two, with my Canadian, who is a snowbird and winters in the tropics to avoid the snow and ice up north. I’m fortunate to be able to join him a few weeks each year, even if my freckle-and-sunburn prone skin won’t let me soak up the sun as much as I’d like. I’m taking a whole pile of panties with me, though – hopeful that we’ll have opportunity to take some pics for February Photofest! Stand by…

February, and the Yearly Photofest Challenge

Hard to believe it’s that time again – February Photofest, when those of us participating commit to (trying) to post an image every day for the month of February. I don’t remember if I participated last year, but yeah, I think I will this year. I haven’t thought of a theme, and I don’t have access to many of the past years’ posts to see what I’ve done before, so – unless I come up with one in the next 48 hours or – these may be scattershot. But what the hell, at least I’m here. Let’s see what I come up with for the next 28 days!

New panties for a new month.
