Hello! Bet you've forgotten I was even a co-host here, right? Long time no etc etc.
Afraid I don't have anything too profound right now, more practical: lifestyles of the cheap and kinky: Discuss.
After a long dry spell, am easing back into actually y'know -doing- stuff. Unfortunately my cupboard's been rather bare apart from two floggers. And the specialty stores are, well? Expensive.
So the other day I went to the friendly local hardware/miscellaneous dry goods store, and picked up:
a couple of wooden spatulas, one with slats, one without;
a long wooden brush meant for cleaning out barbecues or something;
bag of wooden clothespins;
ostrich "quill" plume.
Total cost: About as much as one small "novelty" item would've been at Good Vibes or one of the local boys' toys shops. They should work fine, too. Great thing about SF: discreet "testing" of such items against ones thigh in a non-speciality shop doesn't raise an eyebrow. In fact there was a gentleman in the aisle who was getting assistance from one of the employees fitting a chain around his neck.
Am now wondering: what else? Anyone have any ideas? Common or not so common householdy items one can use for nefarious purposes? Seriously, that store's a treasure trove if you know what you're looking for.
