Flaunting it

Sweet relief. Today is my Friday because tomorrow I'm taking off for parts unknown with Steven and Scarlet where we will do various and sundry things in celebration of Steven's birthday. Unlike last year, this year we will forego the blindfold, the midnight locale and the pinata. Everything else* is fair game. Not to get off track though, but I need to back up to blindfolds and birthdays. What's the deal with the blindfold fetishists on Flickr? In January, Conor and I blindfolded Allie on her birthday in an attempt to keep the location a surprise. I snapped a photo of her wearing the blindfold in my car as a reminder of the birthday festivities and later posted it on my Flickr account. This one photo has had hundreds of page views (which none of my other photos have) and has been favorited by random people. It has also led to various people wanting to add me as a contact. How do I know this? Almost all of these people belong to Flickr groups like "sexy blindfolds" or "tie me up" or other things. You get the picture. Who knew? Certainly not me.


*Steven strictly forbid hookers, strip clubs and skydiving/bungee jumping.

  1. Did he forbid stripping or strippers?

  2. He forbid strip clubs, so personal stripping in undisclosed locations isn't out of the question.

  3. I can understand the bondage thing, but it didn't really sound sexual. I guess some people were just hard up and hopeful.

  4. Blindfolds, midnight rendezvous and pinatas.

    Do we even want to know?

  5. I should be clear in saying I'm not judging the bondage/blindfold fetishists. It just shocked me that they would find this picture in any way sexually appealing. Love to harass my friend though by telling her how many people are probably jacking off to her picture.

  6. That is so interesting! I have never heard of such a thing. People have all kinds of interests and fetishes, but blindfolds? It seems rather boring to me.

  9. LOL I totally remember allie telling me about the whole blindfold fetish thing.

    What a fun night that was... "I'm not getting on the metro!!!"

    BTW ~ I took your advice to heart and thought "outside the box" for my bag. :)
