Tempting Tuesday this time is about a red light. Picture this... in the car, stopped at a red light on a city street very late at night, no other traffic. You and your man coming home from a great evening out, all dressed up and feeling very pleased with yourself. What would you do to really surprise him and let him know what you want once you get him home tonight? (You don't feel like just going to bed). Write flash fiction, a micro story of 50 - 100 words, about being stopped at the red light and let the reader's imagination work out how the night ends.

I like the smell of talcum powder. I don't have any around. It's been a really long time since I kept any here. But, I can remember the way it smells and how it can get everywhere and be quite a clean up job if it gets puffed out of it's container. Talc is the world’s softest rock used to make a variety of products including soap, fertilizers, antacids, cosmetics, and baby powder. There are lawsuits claiming talcum powder has caused cancer. Of course, everything causes cancer so don't get too uptight about it all. What do you think of when you smell talcum powder? No babies for me. My Mother used it but I didn't. By that time disposable diapers were the accepted norm and those things only cause diaper rash if you leave them on too long after they are wet. Talcum powder makes me think of hot, sticky thighs. Not a sexy thing actually. I tried talcum powder on my thighs in summer when they would rub together if I wore a skirt. It didn't work so I usually wore pants. Burning thighs are not so sexy when it's actual pain you're talking about, unwelcome pain. Of course, if you are into pain, try wearing nylon stockings under a skirt and spend the day out walking somewhere. (I don't know if people with very slender thighs would get the same mileage on that one). What thoughts or memories does talcum powder bring you?
I'm watching a cooking show and the chef is talking about the value of flavour over the look of the food on the plate. So, for this Tempting Tuesday, the word is flavour. What does flavour make you think of first? How does flavour work with relations between Dom and sub? Does the flavour matter more than the look of things? I think the flavour is the depth of the encounter or play versus what people think the play between a Dom and submissive should be. There are a lot of stories, mostly based on fictional encounters. These give a flavour of BDSM which is not the reality. In your writing, does your play have a real flavour, something based on reality versus something that just looks good on the surface?
The Tempting Tuesday prompt this week is shiver. A shiver can be a feeling of excitement, a good thing. Or, a shiver can be a very creepy and unpleasant feeling too. What kind of shiver do you feel as you think about rope and bondage? If you like being bound and securely tied up - you will feel anticipation in a good way. If you dislike bondage the shiver you get will be different, less than eagerness to begin. At times it works to use tactics which you know the submissive or bottom does not like. However, there should be a line drawn. A shiver of dislike is a reminder of who is really in charge. But, to go beyond that, to the point where the submissive is truly upset, is taking it too far. What kind of play makes you shiver in a good way and what gives you creepy shivers?
Tempting Tuesday - The word this week is caught. The whole point of the chase is the catch or being caught. When you play with a partner, do you prefer to be the one doing the catching or the one who is being caught? I think submissives generally like being caught. That feeling of being chased, of being wanted enough for someone to give chase and then the actual being caught and kept. Does this mean Dommes only like chasing and catching? No. I think everyone likes being caught. To have that primal feeling of being valued enough to be worthy of the chase. Then to be cared for enough to be celebrated when you are caught.
