About Verbal


I am a single Dad, raising two teenage daughters. I like to read. I like to write. I spend way too much time staring at the night sky. And a little too much time watching baseball. Anything else you'd like to know, ask. I'm not exactly an open book, but I like to talk, and I like to listen.

I value playfulness, in sex and in writing and in life. I am fond of light bondage, blindfolds, lingerie, toys. I love to tease. I have a serious thing about playing with pearls, I have no idea where it comes from, something to do with straddling the borderlands between classy and filthy.

I do not cyber. I may flirt, and while I love to talk about sex, I love to talk about almost anything. Someone lovely, poised and graceful has entered my life. She is a gift, a poem, and all I desire. Respect that.

I tend to go onto Lush for quick visits to check my email and timeline and look around the Forums. So if you BB me and I don't respond, or don't talk for very long, please don't take it personally. Write me an email and I will be happy to receive it, and to respond. I love email because it is so similar to writing letters, back in the day. My kids say only old people email anymore. They are probably right.

The avatar is David Foster Wallace, one of my favorite writers. His best book, Infinite Jest, is an overwritten, self-indulgent mess, and being kind of a self-indulgent mess myself, I can relate. :)

“A little talent is a good thing to have if you want to be a writer. But the only real requirement is the ability to remember every scar.”

Topic: RUMPLATIONS: Honky Tonk and Cyber Bar
Posted: 25 Feb 2017 21:53

Welcome to the last weekend before Mardi Gras Day. Lewd public exposure, drunken debauchery, and extensive social intercourse are in order.

Decades ago, I was being thrown into jail in New Orleans right about this point in the weekend, for "throwing beads." Which yes, everyone does during Mardi Gras, but is technically illegal. I would explain, but it's a very long story, and I might need to down several fingers of bourbon (or the bourbon-like substance served by this fine establishment) before gathering the stamina to tell it.

If I may pimp a story, part 2 of the Open stories, Open Window, just got an RR! It hasn't had alotta reads, probably because I published it like 4 months after part 1. And maybe because there's a cold as ice little speech at the beginning about the "rules." Might be a little jarring.

Anyway, read it if you find the time and the inclination. Barkeep, round of bourbon-ish substance for the house, on me!

That's so weird because I actually thought of that and then figured i should probably read and determine my opinion on the book first. It does seem like a pretty cool rank but idk how suitable! I do like your current one though! Now I'm wondering what your voice sounds like... got any audio stories?

Listen to Strangers. The only famous story I have, or likely ever have. It's the first good piece of erotica I wrote.

It will be good to see you post again. Your work always impresses.

Last night on the graveyard this week. Tomorrow night I get to snuggle with Simplicity. How about a Mexican Coffee, Bill? I could use something to warm these old bones.

Thanks for the kind words. Back atcha! Though I do need to read more of you.

Snuggling is nice isn't it?

Bill, can you slide me over a cuppa something more like coffee than it is anything else? I'm not picky.

Topic: Fart Rape
Posted: 23 Feb 2017 14:55

I recently farted in front of my youngest daughter and a lovely and talented woman who shall remain nameless but is well known to the citizens of Lush.

Youngest, who has always laughed at farts previously, said, "Jeez, Dad, next time take a courtesy walk." My lovely companion smiled and concurred.

So, rather than proudly announce my farts, as I always have in the past, I will have to learn to "take a courtesy walk."

Is that just me, or do others have multiple titles going at once?

I almost never do, but I am working on two right now.

BC - Someone once suggested my rank be Infinite Jester.

Topic: Post something NICE about the person above you.

Sweet smile. Yeah, I know, it's an avatar, but I figure anyone who chooses an avatar with a sweet smile must value sweet smiles, and so might very well have one herself.

Recommended Read Open 2: Open Window

­ The man He waved his card key across the dull black matte of the hotel room door handle.  The click of the disengaged lock broke the silence of the hallway like a gunshot. He pushed the door open wide. Possibilities lay open to him like a strip of empty road. He could smell her pussy before he even saw her.  He kicked the door shut. The woman kneeled in front of him, bathed in...

Open 1: Open Door

The woman The girl stood framed in the open doorway of the hotel room like a canvas on the wall of a gallery. The woman faced her from the other side of the entrance, still grasping the door handle, her mind awash with the possibilities that presented themselves in the form of this girl before her. It was impossible to take them all in. The woman reacted with a simple, “Thank you...

Editor's Pick Serious Moonlight

She came like a thunderstorm, cried out and spilled forward with a breathy sob, bouncing down onto the carpet and flipping over in a single elegant motion. He fell back onto the floor in the opposite direction, his chest pounding, gasping for air. He let his leg lop over hers. For long moments they lay in the dark together, letting their breathing settle, their hearts slow. A gibbous moon...

He had been wanting to fuck her for three years. She was hot in the way Moms are hot. That sounds dismissive, but it wasn't, not to him. It was celebratory. She wasn't a twenty-something waif-thin hottie, she wasn’t a MILF, she wasn’t a model, she wasn’t a cartoonish divorcee on the prowl. She was just a single Mom, maybe a little prettier than the others, at least in his eyes. She had...

He loomed over her, bottle of bourbon in his hand. He pulled the cork out of the bottle with his teeth. “That’s hot,” she said. “What’s hot?” “Pulling the cork out with your teeth. You look like a pirate.” “Arggg,” he said. He theatrically spit the cork out onto the floor. A giddy smile spread across her face. He took a slug and kept the liquor in his mouth and haphazardly dropped...

She was sad. It doesn’t matter why. It wasn't an overwhelming sadness. Lots of things make people sad. Life is sad sometimes. That's all. She awoke at five a.m., hours before she usually did. She could not go back to sleep, and did not try very hard. She called into the office and left a message telling them she was taking the day off. She dressed. She started walking across town to...

I had been going out with Val for a few months. We had fun together and enjoyed each other’s company. We hadn’t discussed whether we were dating each other exclusively. We hadn’t said “I love you,” the charmed words that mark the boundary waters of a serious relationship. We saw each other most weekends, and occasionally during the week. Our sex was electric, and at the time the primary glue...

.  There was a before, and there was an after. For both of them. Meaning, an event had happened in each of their lives – not the same event, but different ones, at different times of their lives – and after that experience something in the world had changed, or something in themselves had changed. Perhaps both. The two tend to go hand in hand. It doesn’t matter what the event was....

For Marta Words failed him. He maintained his cool while he stood in the cramped efficiency of his supervisor’s office, and in his supervisor’s supervisor’s office as well.
