I promise I’m not turning my blog to book reviews, but I’m reading fiction for the first time in a little while, after dumping Cloud Atlas just three chapters in.
The best thing about Wheel of Time is that it’s not Game of Thrones. I haven’t been subjected to any grotesque descriptions of fat men eating roasted meats, so far!
That’s unfair… I did enjoy Game of Thrones as I read it, but my opinion is that Mister Martin has a problem with world-building. Chiefly; he has interesting ideas, but his story isn’t about any of them. An example; I remember finding the idea of highly educated “maesters” installed in the houses of the kingdom’s great houses to be quite unique, but these characters are largely ignored, to my recollection.
I could go on. I won’t. I might upset someone!
So Wheel of Time has its fantasy world, but that world feels real to me as I’m working my way through this novel, and I’m enjoying passing the hottest part of each day with it. Again, that’s just opinion. I don’t read enough fantasy to pretend I’m an authority.
I’m being taken out this evening, once I’ve chosen which shimmery camisole to wear. You’d do well to remember that Southern women don’t sweat, they glisten. If you know what “Bless Your Heart” really means, you have my permission today.
Here’s my other conflict; I have to put fans and blocks of ice in my bedroom (yes, it works!), to cool down the space I record in. The other option is to move my recording set-up temporarily to get Saturday’s Session and Sunday’s Togetherness Session recorded without cooking.
Luckily my neighbour who uses a table saw all day is taking a holiday while it’s so hot, so I don’t have to work around that particular background noise! I’ll work out what I’m going to do, but if the temperature drops tomorrow (Alexa says it will) then I’ll be on track with the content I want to put out.
On the subject of farming; If you know me at all, you’ll have heard that at the moment all I grow are houseplants. None of them are edible, though the Aloe has its uses in sunburn weather. I also have a patch of wildflowers outside, and a healthy stream of bees coming from somewhere nearby.
Days without forgetting Permissive Circumstance:003!
At this moment in time, it doesn’t seem like I’ll be releasing an instalment of Eunoia today. I’m having a remarkably good writing day, making progress on multiple scripts.
There’s a few sequels to Phantom Butt Plug in the works, the next maid training trigger, and something new and very exciting too. I can’t wait to share all of this with you… except I need to wait until it’s done!
I’m citing this wonderful cross-breeze I’ve managed to set up as the reason that writing is going so well. I have a fan in my sitting room at the front of my house, and another fan pointing straight out my kitchen window. If you have a fan running in your house/apartment/room/office/workshop/shed today then you have my commiserations, and also my permission today!
I’ve been hearing some personal records from a few of you about chastity records, and they inspired me somewhat. If you can go ten, or thirty, or even one-hundred and eighty-eight days without release, perhaps even locked up in that tight little cage, then there’s no reason I shouldn’t be able to indulge you with a stipulation for relief on a daily basis.
It takes six to eight weeks to build a habit, this I am all too aware of after reflecting on that fact in my personal life, with partners, and professionally.
So, days since Mistress forgot (or didn’t get around to) posting a Permissive Circumstance: 001
I can’t be the only one who daydreams in the shower, who does some of their best, most creative and inventive thinking in the shower… right?
So this Mind Control Fragment can be found in the MCF Player, where it comes just before bedtime, of course. It’s been hot enough here that I’ve taken a cool shower each evening, it certainly helps with getting good rest.
Also included on the MCF page; an edited (fixed) version of Margaret’s Rules. There was a mistake in the original version, but it returns here. Margaret’s on my mind. There’s a third (final?) maid trigger session in the works, and I’m hoping that Margaret will have a deeper adventure, just like Pixie does in Under the Table.
While happy smut writing continues, we also have time together to simply breathe. Enjoy your Sunday – go outside, find some fresh air, or stay in and be cozy with a book. For those of you stuck in work, choose another day this week to be your Sunday.
Today is a happy, chatty instalment of Eunoia… the kind where I just tell you what’s on my mind. And it comes complete with a Permissive Circumstance at the end. Thank you for the dozens of songs that dropped into my inbox, I’ll be putting them all on a playlist and listening while I write later.
K writes: Dear Mistress Elswyth! Thank you so much for the wonderful Spring sleep session that you made for me, I had my best sleep for as long as I can remember – and the best time before falling to sleep – after listening to your recording at bedtime. Your voice and your words and your sentences are so precious to me. You make me calm down and relax and to feel safe. I am so grateful to have found you and to have you in my life.
Thank you so much for your kind words, Kjell; every response to the Sleep Sessions has always made the whole creation process wonderfully rewarding. This was the last Sleep Session I will make, though there are a few that were made, but that I’m now hunting down! Right now I’m seeing the first requests for Personalized Mind Control Fragments filter in; if you’re a Patron you can check there to find out more, and if not you can request a Custom MCF here.
Here’s some of the songs that have been suggested…
M suggests:Kiss of Life by Peter Gabriel
I’m on board with this one!
CD suggests:The Tide is High by Blondie
I don’t think I’ve heard this, but I can already tell I’m going to enjoy it.
Tm suggests:Chop Suey! by System of a Down
I know of this band, and expect this one is going to be loud!
V suggests:Margaritaville by Jimmy Buffet
This will be interesting. I know the tune, but I can’t remember any of the lyrics. I wonder if I’ll be left thinking V is making some statement about his opinions of me with this suggestion…
Tm writes: What is the circumference and length of the plug or dildo I would need to take your strap on?
Well, I promised I’d answer a question or two that was a little racier than what usually pops up in my inbox! And the answer might not be what everyone wants to hear, but like most women who own a strap-on I have more than one toy which can be attached to the front of it. For most purposes, the inch-wide, six-inch long pink toy (it’s smooth and not at all realistic) works just fine. I do also have a cock that’s black silicone, fairly rigid, and about ten inches long. It’s a little more fun to play with; it looks much more intimidating and has lots of wonderful ridges and textures. Perhaps I should start a Bad Dragon fund on Ko-Fi?
P writes: Dear Mistress, I am interested in your Femdom Orgasms Control. The problem is, I don’t have the willpower to not touch myself in between. So I would like to buy a chastity cage, but I don’t know which is good? Can you recommend me one, or at least a good place to safely buy one online? Also I’m curious in the possibilities of online keyholding. Can you provide me more information? Sorry for all the questions and thank you in advance for your answers.
Alright, I’ve never once worn a chastity cage (for obvious reasons). I have worn a key on a cord around my neck for a few days, but it’s pretty scratchy. Of the people I know “In the Flesh” who’ve ever worn one and had any success there’s two things I’d suggest; First there’s the “Holy Trainer” style toys that are made of a rigid, plastic-type material. Apparently these are fairly comfortable, but one partner who wasn’t circumcised couldn’t get on with it at all since skin tended to “stick” to the inside of the toy after a while. Second, if you visit eBay or any other online shop where people resell cheap toys (AliExpress, why not?) you can find all manner of inexpensive steel cages with simple padlocks. The same partner who didn’t like the Holy Trainer (let’s call them B) found better success here. B liked a metal cage that was a bit more open, so he could prod things anywhere they pinched. Universally the men in my life who liked this kind of play agreed on one thing; these kinds of cages are more comfortable with briefs or other tight-fitting underwear, rather than loose-fitting boxers. The extra weight isn’t supported by boxer shorts, and ends up getting uncomfortable quick. If anyone has any advice or success stories, leave a comment… or reach out and I’ll perhaps add your comments to the next blog post.
There’s a regular Eunoia episode tomorrow with lots of digression and laughing at my own jokes, to come tomorrow. I’m still deciding what session(s) will be going out on Saturday, we’ll find out soon enough!
Have a great day, and I can’t wait to hear what you’re listening to.
This week I’m beginning to create customized Mind Control Fragments for my Happy Harem members and most loyal followers. If you’re not a Patron already, but you still really want an MCF of your very own, you can help me create one just for you here on my website.
I won’t be releasing any new Mind Control Fragments today, but will let you know what I have planned for the rest of the week soon. Right now I’m going to carry on bicycle shopping.
If you can ride a bike (the two wheeled kind) you have my permission today. If you can ride a unicycle, you have my permission for the rest of the week!
