Fifty of these are out there, somewhere

BDSM Emblem

BDSM Emblem

Get this custom keychain at Zazzle

Someone just ordered fifty copies of this BDSM Emblem keychain from my Zazzle store. I've made a few sales here and there of this image, which I think of as stunningly beautiful, but this is my first bulk sale - and it tells me that someone thinks they can resell 49 of them. (I hope they want one for their OWN keys!)

The whole point to the BDSM emblem (and my own varient) is to discreetly advertise interest in the art and orientation of BDSM. But of late, I've been coming to think of BDSM as being far more about what people agree NOT to do, as opposed to what they prefer to do.

First and foremost, BDSM is a system of ethics - and the more I think of it, the more I realize that the ethics devised for sadomasochistic games apply to any form of power exchange. Like, say, US Citizenship.

The first statement of the ethos of BDSM is "Safe, Sane and Consentual." Well, when you think of it, our current administration operates on values that mean that none of the above is true, and by these standards, any member, up to and including George Bush would be ejected from any BDSM group as conspicuous perps and abusers.

George, when you cannot even aspire to the moral standards of we who proudly describe ourselves as "drooling, giggling, *twirling* perverts" ... maybe it's time to take a break from public life. I understand you are still probably welcome in Dubai.

Pastel Envy

Every once in a while I stumble across a really interesting artist with an erotic edge plus a twist. I'd like to introduce you to Daniella Uhlig. Daniella goes from innocence to corruption seamlessly, with stops along the whole psycological spectrum. I dare you to predict what the hell to expect from the thumbnails at the link above - it's like artistic russian roulette - every single image turns out to be something not quite what you had expected.

(Her Deviant Art Page is a great way to keep abreast of her work. Heck, keep both!)

Daniella has quite a few prints available through Deev, so you might want to wander over there to see if you have a hole in your art collection... Permalink to full story.
