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: Quoting two different posts in your response
Posted: 20 Oct 2017 10:43

Apparently you can!

I wonder if you can do a quote within a quote within a quote?

I do know how to do this one!

It's all in the code. So, you can quote one person, open another window, quote the second person, and then copy and paste that into your first response. It will notify both people that they have been quoted.

The other way is to copy and paste the thing you want to quote then put the

Topic: What It's Really Like To Have a Threesome?
Posted: 20 Oct 2017 10:25

I think it's all about trust and/or comfort between all parties. I'm in a long-term MF relationship and we do anything and everything to spice things up, and at the end of the day, I love and trust him and we'll always have each other's backs. When I had my first threesome, I had a bi female coworker who was very flirty with me for weeks. I enjoyed the attention and her company, but wanted to keep boyfriend in the loop. He came out for drinks with my work friends one evening, and I casually pushed them into more intimate conversations together. By the end of the evening there was some pretty heavy petting between the two of them, but we went our separate ways. We went home, I had crazy sex with my boyfriend, and we followed up by seriously talking about the boundaries and comfort level of inviting in a third. Fast forward a couple of weeks and we were all out for Halloween. I asked my coworker if she wanted to share an Uber back to our place, we talked about her interest in joining us on the ride home, and by the time we got home we all couldn't get out of our costumes fast enough. Open communication and boundaries were key for us, as well as doing it with someone who I was close to but would have no trouble cutting ties with if things went south. Thankfully it was an incredible(!!!) experience for all of us, and we still stay in touch to this day. My new job has moved us to a different location so no more threesomes have occurred with this same gal, but it opened up a whole new world of pleasure and opportunities for me and my boyfriend.

I really like how you describe your MF relationship, and the way you were open with everyone involved, and how you just sorta let it happen organically. Very cool, responsible but open to possibility.

I've never had one, though the subject is broached from time to time :).

Yay! for the 1,000,000 views. I'll have just coffee, but I will drink it happily.

What's the most visited Forum page on Lush? I'm too lazy to look through them all.

Hey - another thing to celebrate. I just sold my first Shard! To Bare Back magazine. It'll be out February 2018. They paid almost nothing, but they pay!

Topic: Long Johns: Does anyone wear them anymore?
Posted: 19 Oct 2017 10:10

I wear thermals (no flap, sadly) for camping in the mountains, and for snow-showing (which I admittedly haven't done in awhile).

I wore them at Broncos games, back when I had season tix.

2.5 hour late start for school today! I got to sleep in!

Why the start school at 7:10, and get out at 2:45, is beyond me. Both times are inconvenient for working parents.

Ray Charles is now on my radar, Bill.

I've already had a ton of coffee. How about an iced tea?

Recommended Read Shard 453.2: Dicks

They planned the scenario with less care than usual. They bent the rules this time. She steered astray from the classy/slutty borderline she usually straddled while playing these games. Tonight she wore a short, tight, traffic-light yellow dress. Off the shoulder, low cut. No stockings. No panties. No bra. High stiletto heels. She wasted little effort on subtlety. She dressed to fuck. The...

Shard 452.2: Dirty Martini

They had planned the entire scenario with care. She’d dress in that borderline classy/slutty way she deployed when she was bluntly trying to seduce him. Tonight she wore a short flared skirt that responded to the slightest turn or step on her part, to any breeze or errant gust of wind, so that while the skirt itself was not that overtly sexy, the possibility that it might at any moment flip...

They had planned the entire scenario with care. She’d dress in that borderline classy/slutty way she deployed when she was bluntly trying to seduce him. Tonight she wore that short black sleeveless dress he loved, along with black stockings, the sight of which she could control with the slightest adjustment of her leg, allowing a flash of the skin above the stockings with seemingly no...

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...

Audio Story Recommended Read Shard 504.2: Click

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...

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...

­ 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...

The girl The kiss.  Nothing but the kiss.

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...
