Drinking and the Lifestyle



So I hit a random prompt in the submissive guide prompts and it asked me about what I think about alcohol in a D/s relationship. Well, what I think is that you are not entirely there when you are drinking. Even if you think you are completely unimpaired, it still has its effects on you.  There is dehydration and a variety of other things. Why would you want to jeopardize a safe relationship with this sort of thing? 

We stress in the community Safe, Sane, and Consensual and also Risk Aware Consensual Kink. How can you be Risk Aware with an impaired brain? I’m not saying that you should stop drinking all together (you can ask anyone, I can be a bit of a boozehound) or even stopping the things that make you happy. But if you are scening/sessioning or something then you should be Risk Aware and Safe/Sane.


Let me know what you guys think. I’m out.

Focus... and the Lack Thereof



Hello! Harvest, here.

The topic today is about focus, so this could be interesting.

I don’t have a lot of focus, and Daddy doesn’t really push me into focusing often. He wants me to focus on my usual things like the blog and all of this stuff, but wants me to also have a presence offline. This is why I have been having such a hard time dealing with everything I think. Trying to balance things.

I do my best to focus myself by grounding and centering and trying to catch my own attention, mindfully. I know that mindfulness training is something the Buddhists practice, but I am not sure. I personally am pagan, and it means a lot to me, but I won’t get into that here (for now). The techniques I talk about most often are energetic ones. It is easy to feel energy once you have come to terms with the idea that everything is made of energy.

Anyway, yeah… apparently my focus isn’t as great as I thought it was. ;)
