The sex links are many: as Valentine’s Day approaches, everyone felt they had to do something. Some of it is interesting, some of it sucks (not in the way we like) and some of it is stuff you won’t want to miss. And me? I have a few things planned for Valentine’s – hoping that you will be mine. I’ve got a post coming up on how you can win free signed books on Monday plus free online goodies to make sure your Valentine’s is sexy and eventful no matter what.

If you want your partner to enjoy oral worship even more, then shave or trim. We are not naked apes any more, who need a bush for warmth or to deflect invading parasites, or to retain musky pheromones to attract a mate from the Clan of the Cave Bear across the savannah.

It is not about porn, or pedophilia, or pre-pube desires. Why is this so hard to understand?

I know Dom women like their worshipers to endure a bit of discomfort or hirsutity as a symbolic gesture or test, but please just trim, shave, or wax, or lazer zap, and make your sub clean the house instead.
