I feel so conflicted

So. That's Jessica Alba, there, all naked and duct-taped and such. This image, along with several others like it, are causing a bit of a stir in the feminist blogosphere, understandably so.

Now, I'm going to be straight up with you for a moment: my first reaction when I saw these was, "Wow, that's hot." Even though I'm not into piercing play, and "torture porn" a la Saw and the like make me retch, these images were really fucking sexy in a dark, gritty way.

But then I looked at them all, and noticed that, surprise surprise, all the women were nude while all the men were fully clothed (save one, interestingly enough). Sigh. Because, really, this image of Alba, in itself, is not necessarily sexist. However, in the context of all the other photographs in the ad campaign, in which the women are consistently sexualized/exposed more so than the men, it becomes sexist.

Which is disappointing. This could have been a really powerful, stylish, sexy-as-hell ad campaign, and they fucked it up by falling back on sexist advertising standbys.

Geeky moment

Master and I have determined that he has an Aura of Dominance. I'm not sure what its Area of Effect is, but it doesn't travel through computers well. :x

In other news, it's really funny when we find out we've been crushing on the same person for some time.

Catch up

Okay. Finally time to post.

As I was saying, my birthday was last weekend. Everyone had a blast, it was awesome, etc etc. Eventually it started winding down, and people wandered out. Eventually, Master led me into the bedroom and told me to close my eyes. I had noticed Lupa had gone into the bathroom as we walked by, so I said as I closed my eyes, "But [Lupa]'s still here."

"I don't think she'll mind," Master said. "Now wait here."

At that point I should have figured something was up, but I didn't. Instead, I waited patiently on the edge of the bed. Eventually, I felt Master's hands caress my skin... and then another, definitely female, pair of hands. It wasn't until I kissed Lupa that I knew it was her (I think I actually said, "So that's who this is!"). When I opened my eyes, we both started giggling. "You sneaky monkey!" I said. She just grinned mischievously.

First, we all took a shower together and got all soapy and sudsy. Both before and after the shower, Master left the room for a bit to give Lupa and me a chance to play a bit by ourselves. Then we toweled off and went to the bedroom, where Master explained that we would play a bit of a game, called "Who's on top?" He would roll a ten-sided die, and whatever number it was on would determine who would be on bottom for the night. 1-4 meant I would be on bottom, 5-9 meant Lupa would be on bottom, and a 10 meant Master would be on bottom. It came up a 3.

Lupa had brought over her fancy (and comfortable!) thick leather cuffs, which they put on me, then they tied me down on my hands and knees on the bed and started hitting my ass with all sorts of fun objects. Every once in a while, Master would ask, "Who's on top?" and I'd have to guess. For the most part it was actually really easy, since Lupa hasn't played as much and so she was much more catious (read: not as hard) with her hits. Eventually, Master had me go down on Lupa, and after a few more good whacks on my bottom, he untied me and we all had a lovely good time.

At one point I actually had a bit of sensory overload and was reduced to a babbling, quivering puddle on the corner of the bed. After a few minutes, though, I was good again.

The morning after, we had breakfast together and were all cuddly and happy. Master told me he had asked Lupa if she were interested, a while back, and she was incredibly enthusiastic about it. I'm so glad, but I'm not surprised, really. Lupa has a cheerfulness, a playfulness about her when it comes to sex; whenever she and I play together, we spend just as much time joking and laughing and giggling as doing anything hot'n'heavy. I love it. She's such an awesome person.

Master admitted he gambled when he decided to do it as a surprise instead of okaying it with me beforehand, as proper poly procedure dictates, but his gamble paid off well. He knew Lupa and I liked each other and liked playing with each other, so yay. Fun times!

Short post

Just turned 21. Master threw a surprise party for me; it was probably the best party I've ever had.

No, I take that back - the super-surprise playparty with Master and Lupa was the best party ever.

Will write more about it later, when I'm not busy trying to figure out the Shannon-Wiener Diversity Index of insect samples.

I'm back at school, and so is Master. Been here for about a week. I couldn't be happier.

When I arrived back at school, Master wasn't on campus because he was on a backpacking trip. Fine enough; I had plenty of catching up to do with all my other friends, and we ran about and generally had a great time. Then, the night before Master came back, I had sex with Lupa. We had been cuddly and giggly and gossipy with each other all day, then as night wore on I offered her the chance to sleep over, which she agreed to. Then I... I dunno. I was really glad to see her again, having been apart all summer, and I was also really horny, lol. I thought about trying out my brand-spankin-new strapon with her, but decided against it. I didn't want to push her too far all at once, so I just went down on her (very standard sexy-time, lol). I kinda wanted her to "reciprocate," but I got the feeling she wasn't sure enough of herself to try, so I didn't ask and we went to sleep, lol.

Before we started, I assured her she wouldn't get me in trouble, and I was right; I told Master about it soon after he came back, and he didn't have an issue with it. In fact, he even talked to Lupa later on and reassured her himself that it was okay. What a sweetheart. ^_^

I'm still trying to figure out what exactly my feelings for Lupa are. She's an amazing friend, a former/current? playmate... but I don't think I have a crush on her. I just feel... really, really, incredibly comfortable and at ease around her. Though I don't get butterflies in my stomach or anything when we're together, it feels perfectly natural for us to hug, touch, and kiss each other as an expression of our affection for each other. I was never very physical with my friends in high school, even platonically, so this is pretty new for me.

Whatever it is, I like it.
