A Couple Of Essays You May Have Missed Over The Weekend

I’m struggling on sleep today, but just a repost for the morning crowd: I wrote a pretty good essay/metaphor over the weekend called “In Which A Window Quietly Opens.”  My old professor Nalo Hopkinson shared it on Google+, and since I respect her more than just about anyone in the world, that one felt good.
In other sexual news, I did write a (rather long) essay about my first public BDSM experience over the weekend at FetLife entitled “I Beat A Girl, And I Liked It, or: The TealDeer Experience Of A First-Timer.”  I also made a rather significant error during my playtime, and wrote about it in a separate essay called “The Firecupping Error” – an error that outlines a phenomenon so global that I’m probably going to backport a clean version of it to my blog at some point as soon as I can find another example of theory vs. practice.
Incidentally, the error’s why I blog about this stuff on Fet – when I made an error, I was quietly corrected by a bunch of experienced kink-folk who calmly pointed it out and explained why it was wrong.  That’s a very different dynamic.
