The Role of Role Playing + a Non-Kink Topic
As Boardwalk Badness rapidly approaches and conversations are flying about play dates, sessions, scenes and the like, the subject that comes up most frequently in the spanking world is role playing. Help me out, people. I don't get it. Never have. I can get "angry" and toppy and ominous and all that. I don't consider that role playing. It's when I hear about teacher/student, doctor/nurse (or patient), dad/child (ew!) and every other permutation that gets me feeling all squicky. It just doesn't feel natural to me. In fact, it feels extraordinarily contrived. Further, any notion of a grown woman acting like a student, child, altar boy--whatever--just makes me feel squickier. (And thanks to Jada for helping me remember is "squicky" and not "squingy.")
As I always say, you do your thing, I'm not going to judge. I'm just telling you how I feel about it. So, to manage some expectations as well, I won't be doing it. Again, happy to get all toppy and dour and threatening, but no:
Okay. Got that off my chest. Good.
Now onto one other topic:
As you all know I travel extensively for my job. I am going to have to go to London the week before Atlantic City, so I'll be flying into Philly and meeting my wife at the airport to get into AC Thursday evening. I hope I won't be all jet laggy. I started thinking about the logistics of this. I can't take my AC clothes and implements me to London and then onto AC. Heathrow, since the whole shoe bomber thing, is practically on Standard Operating Procedure for rectal exams, let alone the whole (in a British accent), "Explain again what 'vampire gloves' are supposed to be?" So I'll be shipping my gear and weekend clothes ahead to the hotel. The things we do for play, eh?
See you in Atlantic City!
