Seriously, if there is anyone out there who thinks I’ve had a thoroughly innocent past, you’re going to be disappointed. Fine, I’m not as kinky as some, but yes, I’ve done bondage, and electro play in the (distant) past, though sadly I’ve never got to do a robotisation role play as yet, but there’s still time. I’ve played with the pro’s, I’ve played in private, I’ve played in clubs, so…Not that my halo should slip too far in your imagination, given the mind control stuff I’ve written in the past, but anyway…Oh, and fine, I’ve been friends with a couple of massage parlour workers, and I dont mean the ones who work wonders on my back, either! No, I couldnt do their job, but because of the kinky stuff… 😉
Kind of ironic then, that my interest in actual sex is pretty much zero. I mean, I’ve never had much of a sex drive ever in my life, but this century, well, I just havent bothered full stop. Literally, the 15th anniversary of the last time is only 4 months away! Alright, a little personal attention, every week or two, but otherwise, absolutely nothing! And no, I dont miss it.
Equally, as I’ve mentioned in the past, my Twitter feed is a pretty eclectic mix. Everything from old movies, vintage clothing and stuff, right through to scientific stuff. Oh, and writing stuff of course, what I originally planned to use it for. Well, anyway, one of my ‘friends’ there not only does vintage stuff, she’s also into burlesque! Up to now, my only experience of Burlesque was at that amazing party in Hollywood, in April, and yes, it was entertaining. No, I couldnt do it now. Maybe when I was in my twenties, just maybe, but in my fifties, you have to be joking!
Anyway, one of her contacts on Twitter is one of the queens of burlesque, and made a posting about how liberating strip tease could be. So fine, you know me, I made a witty comment about it not being a career option for a 50 something, and it went’downhill’ from there! No, not literally, but it did get to the point where they were trying to convince me that donning tassels, and shaking my body, at my age, was still a viable option! Next thing I know, a couple of others have joined in, and I’m being told about an event happening in Manchester next month, this
No, thankfully, or otherwise, I’m not yet stripping, or doing burlesque at this show, though I know one or two who might say why not? Well, the fact I’m 57, not overly pretty, and have a body in less than perfect condition, but otherwise, oh fine!
I’ll be honest with you, if I was younger and earning, going to something like this might be a lot of fun. No, not to join the burlesque show, but seeing some of the corsetry, and fine, the latex clothing might just be a lot of fun. Not that I’d buy latex clothing at my age, and however much I love corsets (and I do), having no one to tie me into one makes it a daft buy, as my physical limitations would make it impossible for me to tie myself into one. Besides which, I’m lousy at knots anyway! And yes, I dont deny the chance to meet some of the people who do these things would be interesting.
As some who delve the site might have noticed, there’s even a BDSM/Bondage room in the evening. Now, if I say the last time I did any bondage would be about 10 years ago…yes, been a while, but it used to be fun. The only thing I never got was the spanking/caning/whipping stuff, which I never enjoyed, far too painful for me. I know, getting zapped by nice amounts of electrics can be painful, but thats a different ball game for me!
So now I can hear you asking, will I be going? Lets just say I’ll think about it, more so if I’ve got a job by then, and not working that Saturday. It would be fun, even if I’m not likely to get tied up, and ‘fried’ during the day, and the evening do would be inconvenient, both in terms of cost, and getting home afterwards! But fine, I’m tempted to go over during the day, despite the cost, and the fact I cant afford to buy anything, but it would be nice.
Right, the video. One of those random You Tube searches under ‘Tie Me Up’ led me to this.
