THE NAKED TRUTH

Art by Picasso

According to a 19th century legend, the Truth and the Lie meet one day. The Lie says to the Truth: “It’s a marvellous day today”! The Truth looks up to the skies and sighs, for the day was really beautiful. They spend a lot of time together, ultimately arriving beside a well. The Lie tells the Truth: “The water is very nice, let’s take a bath together!” The Truth, once again suspicious, tests the water and discovers that it indeed is very nice. They undress and start bathing. Suddenly, the Lie comes out of the water, puts on the clothes of the Truth and runs away. The furious Truth comes out of the well and runs everywhere to find the Lie and to get her clothes back. The World, seeing the Truth naked, turns its gaze away, with contempt and rage. The poor Truth returns to the well and disappears forever, hiding therein, its shame. Since then, the Lie travels around the world, dressed as the Truth, satisfying the needs of society, because, the World, in any case, harbours no wish at all to meet the naked Truth.

TMI Tuesday: September 1, 2020: Sex Craze

1. Fill in the blank.  If _____ were bigger, I would like it.

My bank account. I could do anything then.

2. Fill in the blank.  Oh baby that feels good. Will you _____ my _____ ?

Cuff my hands behind my back, strip me naked and spank my ass. Is that too much?

3. If you could have a week of the best sex ever in human history but you had to have a fish head as your head for the rest of your life, after that week, would you do it? (This question was previously submitted by a TMI Tuesday blogger)

No. I don’t think I could live with a fish head. A fish tail as a mermaid, maybe. I can’t walk anyway, being a mermaid would be sexier.

4. What part of your body do you consider the most unusual that you enjoy being stimulated?

My ass. Touches of all kinds excite me.

5. What is the most desperate thing you have done for sex?

Asked my best friend to find me a date. It was a dismal failure. She convinced him to tell her all of the sordid details of our night together and taunted me with it all. Not much of a friend.

Bonus:  If it were legal in your country/community to visit a “sex box” would you?

I have always been fascinated with sex workers, prostitutes and soiled doves for a long time. I have fantasized about working at just such a place, so my answer would be yes.

The most famous madam in Seattle was Lou Graham.

Trump’s Dream of a Civil War

Trump supports the idea of a civil war between white and black.

Why?

1. War is good for business


2. A war could allow him to issue a national emergency to stay in the presidency longer than Nov 4 or Jan 21st.
3. All the great presidents had wars attached to their legacy
4. He is a little boy playing soldier


5. He loves the idea of being able to push buttons to get people obey.
6. A war is just the start of repealing the 14th and 19th amendments which would allow the white supremacist males to take over.


7. A war could help to make conservative Christianity the law of the land.
8. Trump has always been a White Supremacist
9. Trump has always been a bully
10. Trump will do anything (lie, cheat) to stay in the White House.


11. Trump loves being in power.*

*Although Trump doesn’t like doing the work a president needs to do, he loves the power and control that comes with being president. He will destroy this country if he gets another four years.

His followers don’t care. All they see is getting what they want: banning abortion, forcing Christianity on the country, a win for the party, a civil war, the opportunity to play soldier and shoot people without having to actually join an army and obey orders.

TMI Tuesday: August 25, 2020: Sex & Religion

1. How important is religion in your life?

At one time I was very devout Christian, but always searching for answers. I thought I had found them as a Catholic, but after 15 years I finally realized it wasn’t what I was looking for. I left the church and somehow found myself as a member of an Evangelistic church. I became very caught up in it but I was still searching. I tried to take the denominations theology classes to become a minister and that’s when I learned these conservative churches were terribly sexist and misogynist. The male students, almost half my age, resented women in the class and demanded we get down on our knees to pray and while we were there, we could suck their dicks. Instead I dropped out of the class, along with the two other women. A few months later, my daughter died, the church congregation shunned me and I finally gave up and left the church, left Christianity and left religion… for the most part. I spent 15 years as a practicing Paganism Witch but I still could not wrap my head around the need to worship a deity. The Pagan gods weren’t much different than the Christian god, just different names. I became a Humanist Pagan, but now I’m just a proud Atheist.

2. How often do you use pornography?

Not a lot… but I do use it. I prefer to choose erotica over porn, it tends to be more descriptive and imaginative. But I do get off on bondage porn.

3. Do you feel your religion restricts sexual behavior?

It did for a long time. I learned that sex had one, maybe two, purposes. The first was procreation and should only be done to have a baby. The second was to please your husband. Women were not to enjoy it at all. The only appropriate sexual position was missionary and sex ended when your husband climaxed. No oral sex, no masturbation. Women must never touch themselves or allow anyone else to touch them, other than their husband. I had a really hard time with this when my children were born and I needed to prepare my nipples for breastfeeding. The guilt was overwhelming and I suffered a lot of pain trying to nurse my babies, due to the religious guilt. I never had had an orgasm. When I became a Pagan, sex was much more open and free, but I still had the lingering Catholic, Methodist and Evangelistic guilt about sex. But at least I was learning. About 10 years ago, I had my first orgasm, using a vibrator, I’ve yet to cum while having sex with another person… After that wonderful experience, I started studying sexuality and learning about all of the the things the church insisted was evil. In the end, it’s the church that is evil, not sex.

4. Is your participation in sex, of any kind, tempered because of your own religious beliefs?

It was greatly. I didn’t participate. I barely responded. I was a vessel to be used and that was all. My partners never even noticed if I was enjoying sex or getting off and didn’t really care, as long as they did.

5. Can you be kinky and practice religion?

I know there are Christians who practice Christian submission and it seems to work for them. While I am a sexual submissive, I am because I choose to be and not because any religion or book demands it. In Christian submission it seems like the men are always the Dominants and women are always the submissive and there isn’t much choice. I couldn’t do that. I couldn’t be kinky, or even sexy and sexually active and be religious.

Bonus: Are you aspiring to anything?

Just to be myself and to continue learning and sharing what I learn.

Recipe of the Day: Grandma’s Fried Chicken and Cream Gravy

When I was a kid, every Sunday we went to my grandparent’s for Sunday Dinner. Occasionally dinner was pot roast, but more likely it was fried chicken, mashed potatoes and cream gravy, cooked carrots and at least three other vegetables, often out of grandma’s garden, biscuits and apple pie for dessert.

This is my take on grandma’s fried chicken, very much like her own recipe.

Grandma’s Fried Chicken and Cream Gravy

1 whole white onion
Chicken pieces (I usually use thighs, wings and legs)
Flour
Milk
Olive oil
cube butter
salt and pepper
Paprika, sage, and turmeric

Put enough olive oil in a cast iron skillet until the bottom is covered, add a cube of butter and melt into the oil.

Slice onion and cook in the oil until translucent and slightly crisp. Remove from oil and keep warm in a 300 degree oven.

Put about a cup of flour in a bowl and add the salt, pepper and spices.

Put about 1/2 cup of milk in another bowl.

Dip each piece of chicken into milk and then into the flour mixture and then put into the hot oil/butter. Don’t crowd the chicken pieces… Let cook on one side until crispy and brown and then turn. Cook the same on the other side.

Put a cookie cooling rack on a cookie sheet with a ledge (or a cake roll pan) and remove each piece of chicken from the oil and onto the sheet/rack. Keep warm in a 300 degree oven where it will continue to cook while you cook the rest of the chicken and make the cream gravy.

After all chicken pieces are cooked, use the rest of the flour mixture and whisk in the oil/butter until smooth. Add more flour if needed. Stir in milk (may take 2 cups of milk) and continue whisking until gravy is bubbly and smooth and looks velvety.

Serve with mashed potatoes, sauteed onions and cooked vegetables (for me it’s usually carrots and green beans)…

TMI Tuesday – August 18, 2020

1. What is the biggest part of your body?

Oh, without a doubt, my ass. It’s not that I don’t like it. I have a very round, very big, very spank able ass.

2. What is the best bad decision you have ever made?

Starting to dabble in BDSM. It was bad decision based on HOW I did it, not so much that I did it.

3. What is the silliest reason you got into a fight with someone?

A can of spinach. And no, it wasn’t an argument with Popeye.

4. What is your favorite thing about your best friend?

I have friends, but I don’t think I have a favorite best friend. Maybe that’s the best thing about it.

5. If 5 men take about 3 hours to dig 3 holes, how long will it take for 2 men to dig half a hole?

Bonus: Would you rather be itchy or sticky for the rest of your life?

Talk about a trigger question for me… neither, thank you!!!

Reminiscences: Musings in Memoir: OPEN

Mrs. Fever’s last prompt Open is one I will do now, even though I have some of the older ones I need to go back and try to do.

Open.

This makes me think of so many things…

I’m open to someone finding a way to heal the ulcer on my leg. Nearly two years of trying everything under the sun has helped. I’m quite tired of the hassles and pain. I have better things to do with my time.

I’m open to a much more acceptability to nudity, positive sexuality and body acceptance; including the idea that female breasts are no more offensive, including breast feeding, than men’s breasts are. Breasts should only be sexualized by the people who have them, no matter if it’s a man or a woman. For others to objectify another person because it gives them a hard on, is not acceptable.

I am open to giving Conservatives what they want and need to feel comfortable as long as they don’t force those mentalities on others. They tend to complain that Liberals are forcing their beliefs on others by legalizing same sex marriage or allowing abortion, which isn’t true. They are not being told they themselves MUST do these things, they are just being told that they can’t stop others from doing these things.

I am finally open to sharing my thoughts, feelings, ideas and opinions, without the filters that I use to use. I was always afraid of offending people, even when they had no qualms of offending me. Once I removed those filters, some interesting things happened. Number one was that the night terrors that has plagued me for over a year are now gone. Apparently the frustration I was feeling was coming out in my dreams and during sleep. Three topics that I now talk about and write about; religion, politics and sex, are freely shared, not only here on my blog, but on other social media as well. And guess what? The world didn’t come to an end. I didn’t even get the push back from conservative friends and family that I expected. I imagine they just blocked me.

I’m finding the more open I am about everything, the more secure and confident I feel about it all. I am striving to learn to be even more open minded as I go. It’s too bad it took me so long to learn this, but better late than never.
