My First Share Our Shit Saturday
Please Join In Support of #SOSS
My Silent Support for Share Our Shit Saturday
I’ve been pretty silent the last few weeks. I’ve been ill, on the sidelines, so to speak.
But, I’ve been following the Share Our Shit Saturday (#SOSS) movement with great interest. I’m watching it grow. And, I want you, my dear reader, to know I’m very excited about what’s happening!
In many past posts, I’ve mentioned my background as a community organizer. I haven’t yet gone into great detail about that part of my history. I’ll get around to that soon, I hope. It was an exciting time in my life.
As an organizer, I worked on a great variety social issues. My work included an association with the Human Rights Campaign. So, being an advocate for sexual freedom is something that’s near and dear to my heart. I’ve been working, in one way or another, on those issues since 1989.
With that in mind, it’s been killing me not to take part in the last two weeks of #SOSS. I’ve been having health issues this whole time, and haven’t been up to any new writing. My timeline for the last few weeks – a sinus infection that turned to bronchitis, that’s now laryngitis. It’s an “itis attack”. I’ve been sick enough that I’ve not read much either.
It’s been so bad that all the work I tried to do for the Joy of Kink, which will be opening soon btw, was a glorious failure. Something like 10 days of Sinnjara’s work lost due to silly mistakes we made together. The moral of that story is to never try to take on technical tasks while sick. But, I digress.
Because I’ve been feeling ill, today’s Share Our Shit Saturday will be a little bit slimer than I’d might like. But, my enthuiasm for the #SOSS project won’t allow me to ignore it any longer, sick or not…
My #SOSS for November 18, 2017
- Advanced Care Planning – Sex by Indigo Byrd –@midnightoasis64
- Two’s Company, Three’s A Crowd by Marie Rebel – @RebelsNotes
- Spanked Arse on the Moors for Sinful Sunday by May More – @more_matters
Indigo’s post appeals to me because it addresses a very difficult issue. None of us really wants to think about getting older. It’s rarer still to consider sexuality as we age. I’m in my 50’s now, about 13 years from retirement. I’m already suffering from diseases associated with aging. This post hits home…
Marie’s post is very personal. Discussing past abusive relationships is never easy. Marie handles the task with grace and poise. A wonderful lady I will love forever, Mary, was in an abusive relationship. It was very similar what Marie describes. Except Mary was a lesbian, if that matters. her abuser was another woman. One night she showed up at my door, beaten, bruised, and battered. I’ll never forget that horrible night. I cheered when Mary walked away from her relationship, just as I cheered for Marie when she walked away at the end of her story.
And, what can I say about May More? She’s a beautiful lady, inside and out. Her photographs from the moors are absolutely stunning. Beautiful. Ethereal. Not to mention that her ass looks amazingly spankable. If I had to choose one sex blogger from across the pond to meet in real life, it would be May (and her man.)
My Share Our Shit Saturday Resource
For this week’s Share our Shit Saturday, I’d also like to feature a great organization and resource. The Human Rights Campaign (HRC) does wonderful advocacy for the LGBTQ community.
As the largest national lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer civil rights organization, HRC envisions a world where LGBTQ people are ensured of their basic equal rights, and can be open, honest and safe at home, at work and in the community.
As I mentioned earlier, I worked with the HRC during my career as a community organizer. They are a great cause, and are very much worthy of your consideration and support.
Share Our Shit Saturday Call to Action
There are a tremendous number of beautiful and wonderful folks sex-blogging these days. And, there are dozens of posts equally worthy of consideration. My selections are only the tip of a very large iceberg.
With that in mind, I ask that you please show support for the growing #SOSS movement. If you are a blogger, join in with a Share Our Shit Saturday post of your own. If you don’t blog, I encourage you to leave comments or share your favorites on social media.
This is of vital importance. We live in an age of increasing censorship. At every turn, the sex blogging community finds itself under siege. Only by coming together as a community can we continue to grow and thrive. Only by coming together can we continue to circulate our sex-positive messages to the world…
