Break the Superstition~

Time to turn the unlucky day into something fabulous via bold action.
When Friday the 13th arrives – we should do something freaky to brush the unlucky vibes away!

Suggestions:

  • Present for your Sir/Madam in something you wouldn’t normally offer.
  • Consider one of your soft limits and see if Sir/ Madam is willing to hit the edge of it.
  • Have an exhibitionist moment.
  • Pull out that latex piece in your closet and wear it with confidence.
  • Share your kinky side with someone who doesn’t know about it.

If you have any suggestions, please share.

Happy Friday the 13th!

Constriction

Stephane Graff, Mermaid, UK, 2013

A comprehensive body of work, Graff’s Constriction series began in 1991. Much of the series was photographed over an intensive two-year period (1991-1992), after which the series was revisited in 2013.

In Constriction, we discover nude figures bound with ropes. Their bodies, partially concealed, are meticulously wrapped in a manner reminiscent of the ancient Egyptian mummy wrap technique. Captured in raking light, the bodies appear incomplete, resembling at times heavy stone sculptures.

The eroticism of a rope-tied nude figure has appealed to many artists in the past. Man Ray’s 1936 Venus Restaurée, a precursor to Graff’s work, binds a classical armless female nude with rope. However, Graff’s nude figures are too complex to be interpreted as mere sexual fantasies. Graff’s subject matter stems primarily from his fascination with the ritual of binding body parts found in various indigenous cultures.

Another source of inspiration for Graff is the escapologist and stunt performer Harry “Handcuff” Houdini, who would often volunteer to be bound and chained on stage before performing a miraculous escape. This theatrical element is alluded to in Graff’s studio set, which often incorporates a painted canvas backdrop reminiscent of a Victorian stage or sideshow backdrop.

Graff’s bound nude figures offer many potential interpretations, making the Constriction series a dynamic, dramatic, and timeless body of work. ~ Todd Merrill Gallery

Basque – which one? Ah, lingerie.

Asier Etxeandia, actor

Basques are indigenous to and primarily inhabit an area traditionally known as the Basque Country (Basque: Euskal Herria), a region that is located around the western end of the Pyrenees on the coast of the Bay of Biscay and straddles parts of north-central Spain and south-western France.

In college, dievca dated a Seminarian who was of Basque decent — as he told dievca, he hadn’t committed to being a priest, yet. And he was quite good-looking and exceptionally nice. she doesn’t know if he committed to being a Priest or not. They stopped dating when he had another year to go~

A basque is an item of women’s clothing. The term, of French origin, originally referred to types of bodice or jacket with long tails, and in later usage a long corset, characterized by a close, contoured fit and extending past the waistline over the hips. The name of the clothing came to be when the French fashion for long women’s jackets was adopted from Basque traditional dress.

 

In lingerie terms, a basque refers to a fitted garment, with a cup, extending down to the waist line or just above. It is usually made of lace, or stretch lace and has plastic boning to support the shape of the body. It has suspender straps for holding stockings in place, which are sometimes removable. It is intended for beauty, not  for warmth.

Midsommar Celebration NYC

Yesterday, the Swedish Consulate in NYC hosted a Midsommar Celebration in Battery Park City, downtown Manhattan. dievca biked down after work to see the chaos.  According to her friend, it was quite similar to what goes on in Sweden for Midsommar. Singing, dancing, eating, drinking while wearing floral crowns. A celebration of the Earth, topped off with the raising of the phallic Maypole (something about balls and a cock piercing Mother Earth. etc.)

It was too crazy to try to get food, so a bodega further uptown offered simple fair and the Hudson River offered a spectacular view.

Today, dievca is working and then heading out to watch the Germany/Sweden World Cup game. Afterward. dievca is hosting a small cocktail party for her visiting friend.

Have a fabulous, close to Midsommar Saturday. 🥂🥃🍸🍺
