It’s SATURDAY! Yes, the weekend is here once again, folks, and to be honest, I’m a bit surprised. I reckon I must have been an abductee on a spaceship for a few days, cos I have no fucking idea what I did with Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday.
What I do know is, there have been some smashing posts flying around the sex blogging community this week. So many topics have caught my attention. Some of them I related to hard and others allowed me to peek into worlds I don’t live in, but all of them were interesting and powerful enough to make me sit and think, even on days where my attention span – and patience – had gone awol.
You’ll find some of those posts in the links below, along with a review that shows much bravery and dedication, some images to steam up your afternoon (one of them with words to steam up your everything else), and some sexy stories, of course. Have at them, people!

Square Peg, Round Hole: On Pegging, Submission, and Asexuality by Ace in the Hole
I tried to frame it as a service-based act. But it was hard to see a typically toppy act as something subby, especially when my partner was submissive through-and-through as well. I didn’t really know how to explain my own submissiveness to myself, much less articulate it for partners. (I was young, leave me alone.)
Pink Hair, Don’t Care!!! Learning to Love Myself by Candy Snatch
And then I began blogging. And through my writing and my site I realised I didn’t care about what other people thought. I must be me! Dying my hair back Atomic Pink I felt my heart burst with happiness as it dried and I saw the luminous craziness of my crowning glory again.
Don’t You know Who I Think I Am? by Bex Talks Sex
Seeing people like me being sexual with other people all over the gender spectrum reminds me that by expressing my gender I haven’t catastrophically limited my dating pool. My transness doesn’t mean that I can never be a part of any community that isn’t the trans community.

Haircut Sensuality by Eugene Noale
He cradled my heels in his palms and then began inching his fingers up the inside of my calves. I winced as he neared my knees, quivering with anticipation and the teasing tickle as his hands climbed higher. He paused, his breath warm against my thigh.
Libraries Gave Us Power by The Other Livvy
She didn’t touch herself while she read. Instead, she let the stories wash over her, allowing the words to work their way under her skin until she could feel the touches described on the page.
Dance with Me by Molly’s Daily Kiss
I linger in the shadows for a moment and watch you. You look directly at me but the darkness is my friend and not yours and it makes me smile to see you search into its depth for me. Just when I sense you are about to retreat I let the darkness fall away and I step into the clearing with you. Your eyes light up when they see me and a smile of pure joy adorns your lips. I have you now and I know it.
Begging Letter by Posy Churchgate
I miss you as soon as you leave. I hear your tread on the stairs and the slam of the door and already I’m desolate with longing. Your cum is still dribbling out of my pussy, making my fleshy folds wet and sticky, and yet I’m longing for you.
