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.

Topic: Do Tattoo'd women turn you on?
Posted: 17 Dec 2017 18:40

I didn't know you had bats eyelashes ;)

That made me snort.

Yes. Tattoos are very, very sexy.

Topic: reasons to defriend people
Posted: 17 Dec 2017 18:38

I've never defriended or blocked anyone here, I don't think.

I've been defriended a few times, mostly I think because I don't communicate that often, or reach out much to chat. I friend someone because, in addition to telling you are a friend, it lets you see more of their page, and you can follow them on the activity feed. You can get to know them better. But I think some people have felt slighted because they thought I was ignoring them. I'm not, I'm just not very talkative. :)

What the HELL is this????

A warm Brandy please... and something warm to drink too

That is too cool! Apparently there are a few Lush-specific videos floating around Youtube. Who knew?

Had a thousand word writing day today. Those don't happen to me too often. String 100 of those days together and you got yourself a book!

A bourbon to cap off the weekend please.

First they came for the gun owners, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a gun owner.

Then they came for the pro-lifers, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a pro-lifer.

Then they came for the republicans, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a republicans.

Then they came for our free porn. Fuck that shit! I NEED my porn!

with apologies to M.Niemöller

I cried because I had no shoes. Until I met a man who has no FREE PORN.

Topic: What's your favorite Christmas song?
Posted: 15 Dec 2017 12:43

Fairytale of New York (the official Christmas song of NYC, on the jukebox of every Irish bar in town)

Honorable mentions: Carol of the Bells, Sleigh Ride, O Come All Ye Faithful (heh), Baby It's Cold Outside


Topic: writing a story with popular themes and literature.
Posted: 15 Dec 2017 12:32

I have seen that referred to as "filing off the serial numbers".

The trick is to not be too obvious about it.

I am being VERY obvious about it, and right now am stealing the scene from 20,000 Under the Sea where the Nautilus is attacked by a giant squid.
I'm not pretending I'm any good at the Steampunk genre, I'm just trying to have fun with how many references I can pile up to weird crap I like.

Harryhausen-ish stop-motion dinosaurs will show up in chapter 4. :)

Topic: latest movie that you saw or ones you wish to see
Posted: 15 Dec 2017 10:20

Are we talking about the same Jack Frost? With Michael Keaton as the dad who dies and comes back as the snowman? I think it's pretty sweet. My kids enjoyed it, for obvious reasons. No way in hell and I ever watching Polar Express, it looks as bad as you described lol.

I plan to see Star Wars in the week too, Kids break up Tuesday, so after that.

Hey V <img src="/forum/images/emoticons/bighugs.gif" alt="Big Hugs">

Call me Scrooge. Bah humbug. :)

Topic: latest movie that you saw or ones you wish to see
Posted: 15 Dec 2017 10:09

Jack Frost. I could live without seeing it again. I want to see The Last Jedi; we're going next week, hopefully.

Jack Frost is one of the creepiest kid's movies I've ever seen. Right up there with the deeply disturbing Polar Express, which not only has that creepy "uncanny valley" realistic animation, but the elf celebration at the end looks like a frikkin Nazi rally designed by Albert Speer. Everyone exhorting you to "believe," or else. What if I don't wanna "believe"?

Hi KK :)

We'll see Star Wars during the week, probably.

Topic: I AM
Posted: 15 Dec 2017 09:50

I am proud to admit I often go out in my underwear and bare feet to turn off the Christmas lights each night.

Topic: Net Neutrality and Porn
Posted: 15 Dec 2017 09:36

I hope everyone here living in the US realizes all that FREE PORN is going away unless we beat back (heh) the repeal of Net Neutrality laws.


I realize Mashable is not exactly the NY Times, but the claim is backed up in several places. Other losers besides FREE PORN are tech start-ups, marginalized communities, the poor, those of us who work from home and need bandwidth, and pretty much anyone who doesn't want the internet to turn into cable TV, where content is paid for, not simply access. This is already happening in countries where Net Neutrality is not protected, like Portugal:


Here are three laws that were repealed (copied from the NY Times) (please don't react with typical "failing NY Times" bashing).

- BLOCKING Internet service providers could not discriminate against any lawful content by blocking websites or apps.
- THROTTLING Service providers could not slow the transmission of data based on the nature of the content, as long as it is legal.
- PAID PRIORITIZATION Service providers could not create an internet fast lane for companies and consumers who pay premiums, and a slow lane for those who don’t.

Does anyone who does not work for Comcast or is receiving money from telecom lobbyists for their reelection campaigns think this is a good idea?

Did I mention NO MORE FREE PORN!?

They tried filming their fucking a few times with a cell phone, with predictably hot results, but the result was still a cellphone recording, with the graininess and haphazard focus and extreme horizontal aspect ratio. Overriding all those concerns was the worry that someone would accidentally find the footage on the phone. He bought an actual video camera as a Christmas present for the both...

The ocean raged like a wounded beast miles above them, whipped up by the violent thunderstorm passing overhead, but the tempest barely registered eight hundred fathoms beneath the surface.

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...

Picture it: her nipple, glistening with cum. She loved dressing up for him, wearing anything he asked, making herself into a fuck doll, a sex toy. Anything he asked. Fishnet thigh highs, fishnet gloves. Collars and leashes. Thick, whorish makeup. He didn’t ask every time, but he did often. He found his mind took a series of photographs when she dressed like this, snapping away as he...

The woman The girl stood framed in the open doorway of the hotel room like a canvas on the wall of a gallery.

He walked into the bedroom, noted the opened door of the bathroom, peered inside to see his lover naked, lost and adrift in her reflection in the mirror. Their eyes caught. A certain unguarded vulnerability poised beneath her features. He could not read her expression. She asked, “What do you see? When you look at me. What do you see?” Honestly? Her face looked to him like that of...

She had just showered, and readied herself in the bathroom for him, knowing he would be coming up to the bedroom soon. She scrubbed her face with soap and hot water and a simple white washcloth. She added a thin trace of lipstick across her lips, Rouge Noir, a color that he loved and recognized, even though he could never name the color. He knew it when he saw it. She applied a whisper...

He fucked her from behind on their brand new bed, the two of them watching their reflection in the large bathroom mirror facing the bed. His head hung above the curve of her body like the moon over a landscape, his lips bent in a snarl, his nostrils flared. Slitted eyes peeked from under her mass of disheveled hair and her trembling arms gripped the end of the bed. Her ass lifted to meet...

I'm sorry but it's true. I have tried it over the years but no go. I've never even set foot in a Starbucks. I also don't drink tea or hot chocolate. I love Slurpees/Iccees even in the winter. I am after all known for my love of all thing cold.
