This woman of blonde locks
slim body and perky nipples
acne and ribcage and vertebrae
she gives me that look
drawn smile with teeth bared
heaving tummy and deep stare
into my eyes like, “Come on.”
Like a run-on sentence I’ll make
her come on my face all night
and all day the next day

Best sex we ever had,
we had on a naked mattress
after a Sunday doing nothing

This woman of five o’
clock shadow and travel size dick
loose skin from weight loss and a thick neck
she is me and look
at that lucky feel
smearing over my dark mug
like I just won the sweepstakes
Like a run-on sentence she’ll run
She’ll run, she’ll run, run me till
we need an oasis

Best sex we ever had,
we had on a naked mattress

Squeeze your legs
Squeeze your legs
Squeeze your legs
Squeeze your legs
Squeeze your legs
Squeeze your legs,

Release them,
A baker’s dozen

I crouch among driftwood, finger-reading
one piece and then another – furrow
expanse, complex as a brow.
In the wet beneath sand hoppers
jump and burrow like a gang, a single pulse.

Idling the wood in my hand, deciding
what to pack and what to leave
I step among tide wash – broken shells,
matted seagrass, and kelp. The storm is over.
The wind gentles. Fronds of nikau palm unroll.

All day on the floor of her room
amid black bags, one blue shirt
lifted from the pile – that shade
along the sleeves as if I could see her.
The way I can see her now, lifting her head
looking out to sea as if it were a chapel.

That blue that fits
the Pacific to the sky. The way I am here
stopped by a line she has crossed. Alone.

I think these pipe-smokers oughta just move to the next level and go ahead and suck a dick. There’s nothing wrong with suckin’ dicks. Men do it, women do it; can’t be all bad if everybody’s doin’ it. I say, Drop the pipe, and go to the dick! That’s my advice. I’m here to help.

Getting Started with Lucid Dreaming

A lucid dream can begin in one of two ways. A dream-initiated lucid dream starts as just a normal dream, and the dreamer eventually concludes it is a dream. A wake-initiated lucid dream occurs when the dreamer goes from a normal waking state directly into a dream state, with no apparent lapse in consciousness. The wake-initiated lucid dream “occurs when the sleeper enters REM sleep with unbroken self-awareness directly from the waking state”.
Remembering your dreams is the starting place for learning to have lucid dreams. In order to be able to recognize your dreams as dreams while they are happening, you have to be familiar with the way your own dreams work. Before it will be worth your time to work on lucid dream induction methods, you should be able to recall at least one dream every night.

Getting plenty of sleep is the first step to good dream recall. If you are rested it will be easier to focus on your goal of recalling dreams, and you won’t mind so much taking the time during the night to record your dreams.

Another benefit of getting plenty of sleep is that dream periods get longer and closer together as the night proceeds. The first dream of the night is the shortest, perhaps 10 minutes in length, while after 8 hours of sleep, dream periods can be 45 minutes to an hour long. We all dream every night, about one dream period every 90 minutes. People who say they never dream simply never remember their dreams. You may have more than one dream during a REM (dream) period. It is generally accepted among sleep researchers that dreams are not recalled unless the sleeper awakens directly from the dream, rather than awakening after going on to other stages of sleep.

It can be useful while you are developing your dream recall to keep a complete dream journal. Keep the journal handy by your bed and record every dream you remember, no matter how fragmentary. Start by writing down all your dreams, not just the complete, coherent, or interesting ones. Even if all you remember is a face or a room, write it down.

When certain parts of our bodies are touched, certain enzymes and chemicals that trigger sexual desire are released into our system. The more our bodies are stimulated, the more chemicals are released and the greater our sexual desire grows until it becomes a virtually unstoppable flood.

Myles Munroe
Waiting and Dating


When you are secure in yourself, know what turns you on, and enjoy watching your partner watch you experience sexual pleasure, you have a highly novel relationship grounded in love. The experience of seeing and being seen fuels lust and desire. This is exactly the way you integrate healthy lust and love into your sex life. It’s relational sex, not the old pornographic sex of past addictions.”

The Autumn Dance by PakinamElBanna

She seems so cool, so focused, so quiet, yet her eyes remain fixed upon the horizon. You think you know all there is to know about her immediately upon meeting her, but everything you think you know is wrong. Passion flows through her like a river of blood.

She only looked away for a moment, and the mask slipped, and you fell. All your tomorrows start here.

Like spells…

When you are writing laws you are testing words to find their utmost power. Like spells, they have to make things happen in the real world, and like spells, they only work if people believe in them.

blow jobs…

My mother told me that life isn’t always about pleasing yourself and that sometimes you have to do things for the sole benefit of another human being. I completely agreed with her, but reminded her that that was what blow jobs were for.

My Horizontal Life: A Collection of One-Night Stands


Over Samhain my thoughts turned to the dead. Mikey, my oldest friend, taken sixteen years ago. And to Con who was so determined to die in the end. And all the others, family and friends, gone but never forgotten, living on in my thoughts.

I think too of Gerald Gardner. “The father of witchcraft”. Founder of Wicca. Who died way back in 1964, but whose legacy lives on in the growth of Wicca – in the last UK census it was up there in the top ten religions practiced across England and Wales.

Who could have guessed that Gardner with his many obsessions, his sun worship, nudism, photography (he installed his own dark room at Highcliffe, his house just south of the New Forest in Hampshire, in order to process his own photographs of naked ladies and gentlemen), his flagellation (for recreational pleasure), and his study of religion, folklore and magic, would found Wicca (his new religion) from a hodge-podge of borrowed ideas. But that’s just what he did.

Gardner wrote, of nudity in general and the Great Rite in particular:

“To us it is natural, and if it aids the Great Work it is good. ‘Tis true that a couple burning with a frenzy for knowledge may go straight to their goal, but the average couple have not this fire. We show them the way, our system of props and aids (i.e., magic ritual). A couple working with nothing but lust will never attain in any case; but a couple who love each other dearly should already be sleeping together, and the first frenzy of love will have passed, and their souls will already be in sympathy. If the first time or two they do stay a while to worship Aphrodite, ’tis only a day or two lost, and the intense pleasure they obtain only leads them again to the mysteries of Hermes, their souls more attuned to the great search. Once they have pierced the veil they will not look back. This rite may be used as the greatest of magics if it be done with both partners firmly fixing their minds on the object and not thinking of sex at all. That is, you must so firmly fix your mind on your object that sex and all else are naught.”

Ritual sex described in 1953, controversial, but perhaps helping to explain the mass of publicity Gardner and Wicca attracted in the media of the time. For, no doubt about it, it was the Great Rite, the powerful magical rite of sexual intercourse, paying homage to the male / female polarity that exists in all things, which attracted the more salacious tabloid press to Gardner and his ideas. For Gardner the Great Rite was performed with the whole coven watching. He also enjoyed ritual “scourging” as part of the rite (a practice now mainly out of favour with modern followers of Wicca). In recounting these acts, the media titillated and shocked their readership (especially of a Sunday morning) and made Gardner somewhat notorious.

It was from Gardner’s personal interests in nudism and voyeuristic sex acts that the idea of ritual nudity in the craft, or going “skyclad” was invented. He may have been manipulative, deceitful, and not above the fabrication of evidence to support his claims, but whatever his flaws and foibles Gardner deserves respect and credit for what he started. The religion he helped launch and shape has evolved for beyond what he is likely to have foreseen.
