2. If you like hot, bluesy vocals AND damsels in distress -- and who doesn't? -- you'll like Idina Menzel's song Damsel in Distress. I looked all over Youtube for a video using it as background along with some tasty bondage imagery, but I couldn't. But the song is great, so here's a video based on the Tudors that uses it as background.
3. Over in San Francisco a group called Femina Potens will be hosting "An Evening of Wine and Bondage" on April 14th. Dominants and their submissives will attend. Both will be served wine. Dominants will drink from wine flutes. Submissives will drink their wine from dog bowls, and be blindfolded. An event like this in the Bible Belt would have to be held behind closed doors and kept secret, otherwise the Flanderses would mob it. Unless you could give it a Biblical hook of some kind, but of course, it would all be maledom/femsub stuff, since religion and gayness don't mix here in the South. (Yah, I like the maledom/femsub myself, but other peoples' tastes are their business, not mine, even though the feminist and gay bondage fans are not always models of tolerance themselves -- be nice if the feminists and gay bondage fans were more accepting of Gorean play.)
I'm thinking it will look something like this. Image source: The Upper Floor.com.
4. Fifty Shades of Gray is the cover story on Entertainment Weekly this week. Turns out a movie deal has already been cut. Surprise! The juggernaut rolls on. Could be looking at a real bondage franchise here -- so long as it isn't Disney that bought the rights.
