Most sites seem to call them robes. I’ve always called them housecoats. I’ve been looking for about a week for just what I wanted – full length, big size, long sleeves, no tie in front, and a nice comfortable, warm, wearable sort of fabric. I found this on Amazon tonight. I had to send it to my Mom in Florida (for the winter) because they don’t ship to Canada. But, it should get there before she is driving back. Sadly, shopping online means you have to guessimate and hope for the best. However, shopping store by store is a lot more time consuming and less likely to turn up results (unless you’re not at all picky). I’m not especially picky but, in this case, I did know just what I wanted. I wasn’t thinking white, but I can adapt that much.
I found this on Amazon, only a small size. I looked for it online and found more of them on Bath & Robes. Still not the size I was looking for, being bigger so I don’t have any part of it tight fitting no matter what I end up doing while wearing it. I want something soft, comfortable, red and without a tie up in front. This was the best I found. I will just keep looking. But… isn’t it nice!
Found on Etsy today. The shop says it is from the 1940’s.
I don’t collect them, other than those I have bought to wear over the years. But, I’m sure somewhere there are spectacle collectors, especially for vintage cat’s eye glasses. They are fairly unique and decorative looking.

I noticed these today. I was actually looking for glasses to help with reading the computer screen. Not for glare. Reading glasses won’t do either. I tried a few generic glasses at the pharmacy, they are made for people with positive strength vision. I don’t remember my exact numbers, but they are in the negative, meaning I am near sighted/ short sighted. Reading glasses don’t help. My current glasses don’t help much either. I read the computer screen with my head tipped way back so I can use the bifocals to read the screen. Not helpful and my neck gets stiff. Probably good exercise for my chin and neck. But, frustrating.
When I started this site I was thinking less of sex and BDSM and far more about myself, recovering from divorcing the man who had become my best friend (long before we were married). I wrote an introduction to the site and left everything there as far as talking about divorce. But, I think, people need to talk about it more and share their own experiences as they pull themselves along in life.
As an update, I’m now older and wiser, all of 50 years of living. The divorce was over ten years ago, coming up to 15 years since I last spent time with my ex-husband in the same physical space and time. But, we talk online. Kind of ironic because we met as penpals, writing letters back and forth through the mail before the Internet evolved. I guess we are back to that, older and wiser and still connected in that way.
My nephew is a 16 year old boy/ young man in high school. His generation has very different issues from mine, when I was in high school. I remember the campaigns about not doing drugs. His school has campaigns about accepting homosexuality, promoting it as an option. Quite different from the years of campaigning against teens having sex at all.
I think about the issue of homosexuality, not as pro or con but how it has grown and been shoved at us to the point where almost no one dares to say anything against it. If you aren’t pro homosexulaity you are afraid it, homophobic. This is as silly as saying someone against smoking has a fear of cigarettes. I think the fear does come into play as people are not allowed to speak out against the issue of homosexuality, without facing backlash and being accused of being some kind of bigot, snob, or worse. I haven’t heard of anyone beating up homosexuals in the streets in many years. Now, the reverse seems more likely. Speaking your opinion in any way not supporting homosexuality and the other gender options is likely to get you beat up, at least verbally.
Anyway, I do think about the whole thing, as it pertains to the young people especially. I was once asked how I know I am not gay or bisexual. I gave it some thought. How do I know? When I think about having someone’s hands caressing my body in a loving/ sexual way they are a man’s hands. I don’t feel the same about a woman. Yes, I could be turned on by a woman, just as I could be turned on using a sex toy. But, is using a sex toy the same as a lover? Not in my thinking. A man’s hands, the size and shape of them, the extra bit of hair on the back of the hands and knowing the man they

The leg and arm attachments are an interesting idea. But, he isn’t actually quite high enough in front. Too likely the long legs would end up tangling as he crawled and the pony would not last long.

I think she’s buying him. I like that both Dom and sub are wearing masks. I count his face mask, over the mouth, as a mask.
When it comes to random themed Christmas Tree decorations, the Mermen collection of ornaments ranks way up there. Last year I introduced you to the raunchiest ornaments I could find and although it’s hard to beat Pornaments for slightly subversive and sexy tree embellishments, Mermen come awfully close.
Clearly designed for the gay market, they also appeal to those with aquatic fetishes or the many who pride themselves on collecting the most bizarre ornaments they can find. All types of glitter embellished resin bare-chested hunks with fishtails made by December Diamonds are available, from Goalies to Pirates. Hand made with care, the ornaments are made of a light composite resin and they add new ones each year to their collection. While they also make Mermaids and other aquatic themed baubles, the Mermen are the most popular. And they sell out quickly, because they really are fabulous.
Here are just a few:
And of course, King Neptune (aka Santa):
Remember, these are only a few. There are a lot more to choose from including Mermaids, couples and more.
