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.

Yes, the avatar is me.

"Kneel," he said.

Topic: RUMPLATIONS: Honky Tonk and Cyber Bar
Posted: 27 Apr 2017 18:23

Can I just have a shot and a beer? or are we too fancy here now?

The burrbin shots here are infused with a delicate cilantro and dill fusion. Smooth yet insouciant, with a caramel finish and flatulent veneer. You'll find the entire shot menu next to the ferns.

Topic: Berkeley and Ann Coulter: A Free Speech Issue?
Posted: 27 Apr 2017 15:13

Not a free speech issue, it's not the government restricting her right to speak, it's entitled and intolerant protesters.

Coulter is a racist, mean-spirited idiot. The easiest way to let people find that out is by letting her speak.

I am so lonesome I could cry

I am sorry dear.


I am wondering how this damn story got to be 12 pages long. It was supposed to be a quickie.

I think you especially liked that it featured the word DESSICATED. <img src="/forum/images/emoticons/bootyshake.gif" alt="bootyshake">

(Or dessicating. i forget. top poem either way.)

Tell me again how you dessicate coconut. Tell me slooooowly....

I think this is the link to the story I referenced before.


I'm not great at this stuff. <img src="/forum/images/emoticons/eusa_doh.gif" alt="d&#39;oh!">

Wow. Honest and spare, and totally lacking in false sentiment. This is one of my favorites of the whole competition. Read. This.

Gill's poem is wonderful too, btw. It made me a little misty. https://www.lushstories.com/stories/love-poems/passions-two-faces.aspx

I'll have something strong enough to make me immune to further mistiness - damn emotions! I trip over then every time.

Coffee or tea?

Topic: Erotica by Ms. B
Posted: 26 Apr 2017 22:10

Here's a new one:

It's called: The Limitations of an Online Relationship .

It's just an old-fashioned cyber sex story. No intimidating sex acts and no yellow squash. It's utterly fictional and (I hope) utterly fun.

It really is an excellent story.

I love telescopes.

I love baseball.

Series Award Open 3: Open Eyes

The girl The kiss.  Nothing but the kiss. The woman pouted her cum-smeared lips, opening them just enough to reveal the pink tip of her glistening tongue and the feverish promise of whatever waited beyond.  The girl closed her eyes and opened herself to the woman and received a rush of body-hot cum between her lips as she felt the woman’s tongue slew into her mouth.  The seawater...

Series Award 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...

Series Award 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...

Recommended Read Endless Playground

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...

Shard 428: The Razor Thin Edge

It was a moment as thin as a heartbeat. One moment plucked from an infinity of them, laced on the string of time like pearls. He pushed her to her knees onto the plush carpeted floor of the hotel room, her wrists bound behind her back with the duct tape they had bought from the clueless and vacantly smiling clerk at the hardware store downtown. He had duct taped her mouth too, but...

Recommended Read Shard 23: Fire and Ice

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...

Audio Story Recommended Read Shard 629: Morning Light

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...

Shard 612: Business Casual

The suggested attire for the business conference was “business casual.” They both dressed appropriately for the event, during business hours. After hours, they made their own choices of attire. He lay naked on the bed, his khaki pants neatly folded on the chair at the side, his polo shirt draped over it. She stood at the foot of the bed, wearing a modest beige skirt and matching blouse,...
