Five Friday Follows

“Five Friday Follows” is my version of the Twitterverse’s Friday Follows meme.  In it I post new and interesting blogs or posts I’ve found during the week.

So here are my picks for some new blogs to check out.  And yes, I know it’s Saturday, but I DID start the list on Friday, so there.

Twisted Monk, of TwistedMonk.com has a blog as well as a website for selling rope and instructional videos. Of particular interest to photographers is this post on his need for bondage art using his rope for advertising purposes.

The Coquitten. I wandered over via someone else’s blog, drooled over her hot HNT and then started reading…This little tale of a one-night-stand FAIL had me laughing out loud at my computer, even as I commiserated with her. That’s the trouble with one night stands: “You just don’t know if the guy is worth it. He might be hotter than hell, but that doesn’t make him good in bed.”

Married Man’s Fucktoy. I’ve been reading (and lusting after) her for awhile, but this post just had me sooo hot. And then, the follow-up, with her Owner’s arbitrarily banning her from posting in her blog–is there anything hotter than the arbitrary and totally unfair abuse of power? Heh.

Via her blog I accidentally ran across another delightful find, Under His Hand, when I linked to a page in which the blogger details making some homemade torture devices, specifically a “tack bra.” W had mentioned wanting to fashion one, so I was particularly interested to see how someone else had done it. Oh, and the clothespin zipper on her labia?  OMG ouch!!!! I may be sorry I have pointed this page out to him–there’s some evil devices there! I do so love the subtitle to her blog though: “it’s delicious to suffer.” Oh yes, it is.

And finally, while I can’t vouch for any of their products, not having purchased any, I can say I love the idea of The Dungeon Discounters. Who doesn’t need a bargain in this time of economic uncertainty? Even in the dungeon…

Five Friday Follows

Over in the Twitterverse, there’s this thing called Follow Friday, wherein you list in a tweet someone’s Twitter account as one you think other people should follow. I have (strangely, since I don’t tweet much, and nothing terribly interesting) been tagged a couple times since I started all this tweety-bird stuff.  I haven’t really got into the groove of the thing myself, and in fact I haven’t started following anyone yet from an “FF”, but I have found a lot of interesting blogs via Twitter profiles, and lots of interesting articles via tweets folks send out.

In the past I have sporadically mentioned new blogs that I’ve started following, but the “Friday Follow” gave me an idea to make this process more organized, especially now that I have started to find so many new blogs. I’m going to start listing five new blogs that I’ve found that I think people should check out. They’ll be under Five Friday Follows, although I may not post every Friday, depending upon how many follow-worthy blogs I run across.

So, my inaugural Five:

Eden Cafe A website rather than a blog, but just chock-full of interesting posts, commentary, product reviews, contests and the like. CarrieAnn, of A View from the Floor, is an editor over there, so you’re sure to find some smart, pithy writing. (And okay, I’ll toot my own horn here, maybe some of my own occasionally.)

A Year of Living Flirtatiously Maura Kelly fearlessly chronicles the joys and pitfalls of her dating life right out here on the Net. Funny, poignant, and baldly honest, she doesn’t pull punches. I have been struck many times by her posts on the intersection of real life and the blogosphere, and how difficult/odd/sometimes uncomfortable it can be to be blogging so honestly about the people she dates.

H is for Harlot An Alison Tylor blog featuring short, steamy erotica written by various authors.

Views from the Back Row Half-Nekkid Thursdays are another way that I find new blogs to read.  I didn’t realize that I hadn’t listed Osbasso’s blog in my blogroll until I went to get the link and it wasn’t there – big oversight on my part, since this is where that joy of joys, the HNT, comes from. Osbasso has lots more to say than just listing each week’s HNT, though. Definitely worth taking a look around.

Library Vixen’s Tumblr I already read her blog, but recently I found that she also keeps a Tumblr of erotic images/pictures. Some hot hot stuff in there!

Okay, that’s your Five Friday Follows! Go forth and, um…read!
