Are You Hiding Your Kinks?

It sucks, doesn't it? I hid mine for 15 years. I was married and in a BDSM poly relationship. I was the dominant, and I was so unhappy. We fought constantly because I was in denial of who I really was.

Sigh, such a painful time in my life. I was such an angry person. I was mean, hateful, cruel. And I was even harder on myself. The worst things I ever said to another were nothing in comparison to the disgusting words I said to myself.....

Law Of Attraction 101

Do you believe in gravity? 

It doesn't really matter does it?  Whether you believe it or not, gravity applies to you, and every other thing on the planet. You don't question what would happen if you drop a piano out of a window, do you? No, because you know it will fall and crush whatever is on the ground outside the window.

As far back as 391 BC, Greek philosopher Plato noted that “likes tend towards likes”. In other words, the Law of Attraction, like attracts like.

What Exactly Is The Law Of Attraction?

Kink 101: Fetishes, Bondage, & Other Fun Things

Kink Traditions Are Ancient & Run Deep.

The earliest mention of the term 'BDSM' I could find was 1969, but people engaged in kinky sex acts long before that. It became a truly 'mainstream' word when E.L. James published her book, Fifty Shades of Grey. Her book was a hit! But people in the BDSM-community were furious 'cause they hated the way James portrayed their lifestyle, mainly because she left out the importance of 'Safe, Sane and Consensual,' which is a common BDSM motto.

whether E.L. James got it wrong or not, the point is this: BDSM is more than just a cool room with cool toys and a safeword. It's a lifestyle. It's a deep, consensual commitment you make to another, even if it's only for one night (or one spanking.) You commit to giving control of yourself over to another or vice-versa, safely and sanely.

You can probably tell I'm pretty passionate about it, and that's partly because...

I've got a quarter-century of BDSM experience.

Ryze Gear Re-Branding & Coming Out

2 DAYS OF TEAR-STAINED WRITINGS. "You can change the version of you that you are today, like changing a t-shirt, it's that easy. Choose the version of yourself that you want to be and go be that. Now. Today." ~Cyn I wrote that in my manifesto. I spent two days hand-writing pages and pages of my thoughts on being true to who you are inside.  Why did I spend so long doing that? Because I was trying to find a way to explain to you, my dear reader, why we've decided to change Ryze Gear's focus.  Our mission statement is...
