Roger Michell Lustre Pottery Teapot 1976
Roger Michell (1947–2018) was a British studio potter, artist, book illustrator, writer, and poet.
Michell designed various items of Carltonware – He was most known for designing Walking Ware, a tea set on legs with oversized Mary Jane shoes – in the 70s & 80s, then set up his own Studio line of lustreware. Thousands of these tea sets were sold, either hand made from Lustre Pottery studio or manufactured by Carltonware in Stoke-on-Trent.
dievca was looking for a little submissive elegance and ran into this advertisement from the Cigar Institute of America. Their message is interesting on many levels: Why just single girls? Is she a gold digger? Does she just want to be taken care of like a good cigar? Can you truly justify that starting to smoke cigars young will keep you young? She does look older than he does. If you don’t inhale you can still enjoy the rich flavor – is that like not swallowing in fellatio? Hmm – much to think about~
Or is that May Flowers?
All dievca knows is that NYC is starting to blossom.
Something lovely to see. XO

“diversity, dievca, diversity”
A lipstick ring around your cock is a beautiful way to start cock worship. But to change it up, should we try sugar sprinkled lips? A sweet taste with a light massage and lots of spit to dissolve the little balls which can be used to massage the larger balls. Envision a lot of licking and kissing. Sounds like a very nice way to brighten up the day.
and a Smile.
An Excellent Presentation Outfit
for your Sir or Madame.
she doesn’t see a birthday cake in her future, but this submissive design made her laugh!
dievca does see Maryland crabs and crabcakes arriving tomorrow –
🤞 (cross fingers) that they are good.
she used to order from Annapolis Seafood, but they stopped shipping
so she’s trying a new place in Rockville, MD.
Your Master arrived safely.
The humidity has broken.
D/s outside might be an option.
upon Master’s return.
I truly believe that one of the reasons why I look and feel so well
is because I’ve very few inhibitions.
I don’t care about age.

Sometimes the Power Exchange Merges
The phrase ‘there is no rose without thorns‘ means that in order to enjoy something that is beautiful and pleasurable, you must endure something that is difficult or painful.
If you are tied up, anything can happen. Even if nothing happens beyond kissing, the physical nature of being bound heightens everything.
With extra time on hand, dievca took a BDSM test for giggles (www.bdsmtest.org) – her results are above. she was taken aback by “Rope Bunny” being the highest percentage – especially since rope bondage (shibari) is really not one of her or Master’s interests.
she’s been pondering the high percentage ever since.
The aha! moment came yesterday after meeting and playing with Master. Master created various cuff and strap connections during play, in response dievca switched submissive and moved all in.
Master asked her about being restrained afterward and she had a hard time verbalizing exactly why she is able to let go fully.
The gist is that dievca isn’t interested in full bondage for beauty or complete limitation of movement.
she is interested in being restrained to place full trust in Master and take away control from pieces of her body to focus fully on Master and other bodily responses. The energy from the restraints can be pushed elsewhere.
Does that make sense?
Where do you go when the World gets a little crazy?
What habits, activities, processes happen?
dievca is still working, but when she has a chunk of open time after wiping down the refrigerator….three things may occur:
- The vintage 1990’s Champion Sweats appear, cosy and worn in
- Alexa plays Classic Cassette Era Rock, 1970’s Pop, 1980’s New Wave, 1990’s Alternative
- dievca’s nose gets stuck in a Sci-Fi / Fantasy novel
Master just laughs at His dievca when she hides from the World – He knows she’ll come back to Reality with Him.
But Master isn’t here and dievca has slipped into her 90’s Alternative Universe with Mazzy Star. Yes, she has her Champion Reverseweave Sweatshirt on:
What do you do to slip away?
Mazzy Star – Fade Into You – 10/2/1994 – Shoreline Amphitheatre (Official)
Fade Into You
I wanna hold the hand inside you
I wanna take the breath that’s true
I look to you and I see nothing
I look to you to see the truth
You live your life, you go in shadow
You’ll come upon and you’ll go black
Some kind of night into your darkness
Close your eyes with what’s not there
Fade into you
Strange you never knew
Fade into you
I think it’s strange you never knew
The strange light comes on slowly
A stranger’s heart is out of home
You put your hands into your head
And your smiles cover your heart
Songwriters: David Roback / Hope Sandoval
Well…options for dievca to work on.
Her hair hasn’t looked like any of these options.
(Wait! She did have a pixie cut at one time)
How about your hair?
A big, bright Full Worm Moon will appear in the east on Monday, March 9th.
It might make your Sir’s worm wiggle…
Although the Super Worm Moon officially reaches 100-percent illumination at 1:48 p.m EDT and 10:42 p.m PDT, it’s much more impressive if viewed as it appears low on the horizon.
In New York, sunset is at 6:57 p.m. EDT and moonrise is at 5:56 p.m. EDT, while in Los Angeles sunset occurs at 6:56 p.m. PDT, followed by moonrise at 6:14 p.m. PDT.
If the sky isn’t clear on Monday, check again at dawn, when the moon will be setting in the west. In New York, sunrise is at 7:15 a.m. EDT and moonset 8:06 a.m. EDT, while in LA, sunrise is at 7:09 a.m. PDT and moonset 7:58 a.m. PDT.
The eyes are open
Aware but barely knowing
To slide thru the day
dievca has found herself reading Reddit Chemistry and Physics threads, lately…
Something about wishing to be a student, again?
This might be an inspiration for a Presentation Outfit:
Foreigner’s ‘Blinded by Science’ doesn’t have a video to inspire, but Thomas Dolby does!
- Thick intelligent glasses

It’s a pity nobody believes in simple lust anymore.
What is happening between your legs as well as between your ears during arousal?
Desire usually refers to emotionally wanting to have sex, while arousal refers to the physiological changes in your body that happen when you are sexually excited.
During arousal, your brain is welling up with powerful hormones: dopamine and oxytocin. Dopamine, which comes first, triggers feelings of motivation. I really want to get this person naked. Oxytocin, the ‘Cuddle Hormone’, kicks in later and makes you feel bonded with your partner.
As a pair, the two neurotransmitters explain why we feel instantly — if momentarily — bonded to our partner when we start to feel turned on. During arousal, certain geography of the brain lights up like fireworks. Half a dozen parts of the brain become activated, including the amygdala (associated with emotions), the hippocampus (associated with memory management), and the anterior insula (helps process physical feelings).
Men and women’s brains don’t always respond the same way to arousing stimuli. In a study published in 2015, men and women watched a series of erotic videos while researchers examined their brains using an fMRI. Both men and women reported feelings of arousal while watching the videos, but researchers noticed that men showed more brain activity in the amygdala while women showed hardly any.
More so than men, women tend to be aroused by stimuli that they can “imagine themselves into” — like an erotic story, or an imagined fantasy. Another study that tracked eye movement as people watched pornography, found that both men and women’s eyes were locked on the woman in the film — regardless of their sexual orientation. The theory? Women need to imagine their way “into” the scene, while men are satisfied by focusing on the visual imagery alone.
Researchers also noticed that women’s stimulation of the vagina, clitoris, and nipples all correspond to the same precise area of the sensory cortex — meaning that all of those areas register as erogenous. Yes, confirming the obvious, but arousal has been difficult to measure as there is often a disconnect between what is happening in your genitals, your brain, and your consciousness.
John Bancroft, Ph.D., senior researcher and former director of the Kinsey Institute, has studied how arousal develops, and his research pinpoints something important:
We need to be aware of our own arousal before we can really feel aroused.
“In the male, sexual arousal is typically associated with some degree of penile erection. The man will become aware of this, and focus his attention on the idea of his penis being stimulated,” explains Dr. Bancroft. But, in women, the equivalent — the stiffening of the clitoris — isn’t nearly as noticeable, and “typically the woman is less aware of her genital response unless her genitals are touched.”
Cognitive components of arousal are especially important for women. Just like sensual touching can jumpstart arousal, so too can sensual thought. Reading erotica, watching pornography, fantasizing about an erotic scenario, or even just thinking about sex all trigger a response in the brain — which, in turn, contributes to feelings of arousal. The biggest sex organ in the body is the brain, talking with a lover in a loving, sexy way can cause a man to become erect, or a woman to become wet.
The mechanics of sexual arousal are well-known, but are there things that can take our arousal to the next level? There are all kinds of supposed ‘sexual aids’ in the form of herbs, supplements, and exercise methods that claim to improve libido. e.g. eating oysters, taking ginseng, using THC lube. No conclusive evidence has been found that these items do not work, but there is no good evidence that they do work either.
What is recommended and proven is communication. The sharing of one’s desires is a great arousal jump-starter. Working to shed inhibitions and opening yourself emotionally can help you get into the right headspace to feel turned on. Don’t think of ‘foreplay’ as something completed to get to a conclusive event (orgasm). Think ‘sex play’ — a menu of different activities to create pleasure between partners, sometimes with a formal conclusion, sometimes without.
Work with what God gave you~
In modified modes.
It’s not been all comfort food…
Master has been really cognizant about His dievca’s mental and physical state.
Back issues? Certain positions.
Torn Calf? Gentle maneuvering.
Mental meltdown? Coddling before shifting..
Need for oblivion? Heavy D/s subspace.
In return, dievca has been serving Her Master to the best of her abilities.
It’s amazing how they flip to D/s without much coaxing.
One cannot ask anything more than that in D/s relationship. Right?
