The Toad

You’ve probably heard the story of the Frog Prince, and how he turned out to be a handsome man. Well, that’s not like me. I’m ugly. Everybody has called me “The Toad” since I was in junior high. And if it weren’t for Shibari, no woman would like to be near me. Allow me to…

Shibari Nerd

I know everything there is to know about Shibari. I could write a book about it. Actually, I could write a dozen books about it. You can call me a Shibari nerd, and that would be an accurate description. However, I am afraid of putting everything I know into practice. To put it simply, I’ve…

How Weird Is Weird?

The dictionary describes “weird” in a very imaginative way, as something that suggests the supernatural or something uncanny. In everyday language, however, we simply define it as the opposite of the usual, that which is not normal. This, in turn, brings up an important question: how weird is weird? How can we tell when something…
