Postcard from the San Juans

August 23rd, 2011 by jane

so it’s august 23rd, and we are on day 5 of our annual 2 week cruise. I’m escaping a brutal hot sunshine that surprised us out of nowhere about 2 hours ago. I think I’ve become entirely unaccustomed to sunshine after the non-summer Washington has experienced this year.So far we have spent a couple of nights at anchor, then yesterday ended up taking shelter at a little marina because it was pouring rain so hard we were both drenched trying to get to Friday Harbor.

Now we’re at FH for a night, waiting on friends who are joining us. Tomorrow it’s Pt. Townsend, where I’ve not visited since I was a little kid, and then this year instead of going North to the Gulf Islands, we’re headed for Seattle instead. It’s weird how we never have considered doing that by boat. I think it was the right decision given what the weather is suppose to be like north of us.

Anyhow, I’m trying a couple of new things with this post. One, I am using a bluetooth keyboard with my iPad, so it’s like typing on a tiny little laptop. And two, I’m using the Blogsy app to do the post, so we’ll see how it works. I’ve had the app since I got my iPad, but I hadn’t tried it until now. If all goes well, I might try to figure out how to post pictures, because it’s soooo beautiful wandering around the PNW via boat.

FH is nice, I just stopped by the bookstore (an now reading Karen Russell’s ‘Swamplania’, so far verdict is AMAZING writer), went by the little floating seafood shop for a crab and some ahi tuna, and have a lovely chilled glass of Rosé in my hand. In short, it’s starting to feel like vacation! yay!~Janie

Soho Blindfold

November 18th, 2005 by jane

So often, people commit fashion crimes while doing sensory play. A teal bandana, a sleep mask with the logo for a passenger airline, a necktie featuring penguins playing golf: these things are what people most often reach for when they set about to blindfold their partner.

This toy made me feel something that no other toy has ever done: jealousy. The Rock Chick is an ingeniously designed battery-powered vibrator that stimulates the G-spot and the clitoris simultaneously. Read the rest of this entry »

How To Tell a Naked Man What to Do

November 15th, 2005 by jane

I’ve always admired what Candida Royalle set out to do. After a career of starring in pornos, she began producing and directing a series of adult films aimed at women. Her movies are plot-driven with an emphasis on fantasy. Gone are the ridiculously endowed ugly guys, replaced with attractive, more realistic men who are more likely to come inside his partner than on her. The few Candida Royalle-produced porns I’ve seen weren’t particularly amazing, but then again, they weren’t made with me in mind. Read the rest of this entry »

Fleshlight (Ice Lady model)

November 15th, 2005 by jane

fleshlight

For some reason, sticking a fake disembodied penis in my ass is no problem, but the idea of stuffing my cock into a disembodied mouth was disconcerting. Personal hang-ups aside, I’d heard so many good things about the Fleshlight that I was excited to try it out. Read the rest of this entry »
