A few weeks ago, Mia and Vincent from ‘Tales from Under Our Covers” gave me a TMI blog award! It was very unexpected and quite a lovely surprise! I did thank them via twitter, but I’ve since neglected to acknowledge it via my blog and actually say that I DO love having this award… Thank you so much!
I’m so happy to have this blog, where I can share intimate details of my life. I’m always honest, I don’t like to filter, and when I say that I meant it. (On a related note, if you want to see just how much detail I’ll give, you can always ask me a Formspring question!)
So here’s my awkward and embarrassing story:
I grew up in an ultra-conservative religious household. My parents never said “sex” or intimate body parts in front of us. I never got “the talk.” Well, one day I was talking to someone and they commented that I was “anal-retentive.” For those of you who haven’t studied Freud, that means I’m obsessed with detail to an extreme point – aka, anal. I’d never heard the full term, and at our family dinner table I made the mistake of telling my parents I was “anal receptive.” I didn’t catch my error, but my dad sure did. His fork clattered to the plate with a loud “WHAT?” I’m pretty sure the pause that followed was followed by crickets as I replayed what just happened, heard my mistake, and quickly (but not quick enough) corrected myself. Oops.
My parents would probably die today if they knew I really was anal receptive!
As far as my nominees go… here they are. (I know I’m not supposed to award those who have already received the award, but I’m too short on time (read: lazy) to do that, so I’m giving it to those I’m not sure about…)
1. Shelby Cross, who I found on twitter and was so intrigued by her D/s relationship with her husband that I went to her blog and found it even more tantalizing. Her writing is creative and a fantastic read.
2. N of My Dissolute Life. Also found on twitter, but his writing is prolific and detailed and always a good read! I still owe him like an entire day to read his blog at some point.
3. A Couple of Wankers who are a really adorable bisexual couple who are about to tie the knot. Their blog is full of excellent toy and book reviews and some beautiful shot at home photography. I have a slight crush on Lucy…
4. Dru of Sexxcited who I’ve just recently discovered. She writes from South Africa and I find her writing refreshing and very interesting.
