The reverberations from last weeks ‘anal cherry’ story can still be felt. I loved this short, but very sweet email I received from a regular correspondent….
‘Well now, Kate, I was shocked speechless by the anal pegging virginity loss story. Wow.’
What are you laughing at?’ Someone asked me at work the other day as I read this email….’Nothing’ I replied. I didn’t think this was the right time to introduce them to my blog.
But I tell you what, you could have knocked me over with a feather when I got this email from my partner in crime, Therese over at The American Virgin. You know how I often try and name posts after Steely Dan songs? And you know how last week I named my anal cherry post ‘Peg’, after the official name chosen to illustrate such an activity…..? Imagine my surprise to hear this little nugget of information from Therese…
‘Here's some trivia for you, courtesy of Wikipedia:
There is a depiction of pegging in the William S. Burroughs novel Naked Lunch. The dildo used in the scene is called a Steely Dan III, and is the source from which the musical group Steely Dan takes its name.’
My turn to be surprised.
Changing the subject, I realized last week that I had let an important date slip by. It’s been two years since I started blogging and I can hardly believe the time has passed. I had no idea what an adventure I was about to go on when I started this blog. I had no idea how many wonderful people I would get to communicate with. It’s all very well me sitting here telling you stuff every week but really, this blog would be nothing without your contributions.
Thank you to all the fascinating, brave and talented people who take the time to put pen to paper and write to me. A lot of people get a lot out of reading your stories. And so do I.
