If you are wishing for a Unicorn

Definition 1 of Unicorn related to the BDSM Lifestyle:
There’s a term nearly everybody in the Swinger world, the BDSM world, and the Polyamorous world is familiar with, summarized in one neat, pretty, sparkly mental image of one word: Unicorn. On the surface it’s a simple term, relating to the mythical creature of lore that is rumored to exist but is nearly impossible to find. Furthermore, once found, it’s nearly impossible to keep, for, after all, nobody can really own a unicorn. (credit absinthepassion.wordpress.com )

Definition 2:
Colloquial; Synonym for hot or Bi babe or HBB, often derogatory, condescending, or ironic. A bisexual person usually though not always female, who is willing to join an existing couple, often with the presumption that this person will date and become sexually involved with both members of that couple, and not demand anything or do anything which might cause problems or inconvenience to that couple.

The term is often used to be dismissive of a couple seen to be only superficially polyamorous. Because of the demands that this type of couple places on the woman (that she be single and not take on any additional partners, and become involved with both members of the couple equally, and often “complete” their family as a surrogate mother and housekeeper and/or breadwinner and not do anything that may threaten or disrupt the existing couple), many in the poly community call this type of woman a ‘Unicorn’, as in mythical and not likely to be found, even though there are plenty of bi-poly women around.

Sometimes the unicorn is expected to not develop any emotional attachment and is strictly there for a sexual relationship (equally distributed to both members of the dyad) and/or is prescripted as a secondary. This term is used as a reminder that bi-poly women are people with their own desires, needs, and pre-existing lives, and not fantasy figures or pets.

Sole Searching – Something of Use

Rolling the foot with a ball is an exercise you can complete on your own as a way to massage and stretch the bottom of the foot and the plantar fascia making it much less likely to become irritated.  A ball can help to improve flexibility and range of motion of the ankle.

The type of ball to be used is open — what do you have at home?  A softer ball is easier to start with and you can work your way up to a lacrosse ball or a golf ball.

Put enough pressure on the ball to get a deep massage. You may feel some soreness, back off if you feel any pain.

Try it… Sole Searching
Remember the ball loosens up stiffness in your sole’s muscles, joints, and connective tissues.
How to do it:
1. Circle the ball under your heel with some pressure.
2. Slowly roll your foot from heel to toe through the middle of the foot. Repeat for 1 to 2 minutes.
3. Roll the ball side to side so the ball crosses your arch. for 1 to 2 minutes.
4. Curve your toes around the ball to open up the phalanges and metatarsals. Help with your other foot if needed.

Repeat with your other foot.


The way to look professional in a Mask.

President of Slovakia, Zuzana Caputova – rocking her new color-coordinated accessory, the COVID-19 mask.

dievca didn’t follow the matching vision from Slovakia….
she just bought a black mask for Master and the checkered for herself:

Maybe she’ll collect her sewing machine at her Mother’s and start color coordinating.

A Wal-Mart Gem (something of use)

dievca took herself out of her Mother’s house to avoid — well, let’s just say she had to kill three hours.  Masked and gloved she got gas, ran to CVS (pharmacy), and wandered Wal-Mart.

Her sister-in-law is disdainful about purchasing anything from Wal-Mart, but dievca rolls with it.  she was able to get some lovely “grateful” cards to use as “Thank You” notes for people who acknowledged her Dad’s passing. Much sweeter and happier than the regular notes.

she was also able to get something stylish, eco-friendly, inexpensive, and of use.

The cotton tote is simple, roomy, 100% cotton, made in California, and other shopping bags offered are made from recycled bottles (PET). All the styles can be found on Amazon:
