Shibari intensive in Memphis Tennessee April 2016

This was our second visit to Memphis Tennessee USA and it was even hotter than the last time. That's saying something. Coming over from a wet and windy UK it was more than a little bit of a contrast in conditions for us. The first thing once we were at our hosts was to get some supplies, we looked on google maps and found a local Walgreens (I think it was a Walgreens) and headed off. Man it was hot! We noticed fairly quickly that we were getting some odd looks and that we were the only people walking. The walk was only 10 minutes but... Man you've got a lot of churches in Memphis! We must have gone past 7 in that 10 minute walk. Dudes! Insane! The walk was fairly uneventful but we did hear some gunfire! This is very unusual for UK people where guns are the exception not the rule. (Later that day when we our hosts got back we were told that that wasn't the best neighbourhood and walking that way was probably a bad idea. They did register some surprise that we'd heard such a small amount of gunfire and yes, there are a fuck-tone of churches in Memphis.) So anyway we'd gotten some sun block (Hey did you know that they aren't allowed the chemicals in the USA that we are in the UK and that therefore our sunblock is much more effective?)  and bits and pieces. So suitably protected Clover decides to keep her training up and go for a run... and nearly dies of the heat and gets sunburned. Protip: People from Europe, take sun block with you.

Shibari (not shibari again)

As I can't help but find these a bit weird and funny and after the delay spray post it got pointed out to me that there was more of this stuff... Shibari intimate lubricant! From a recent review Taste – This lubricant is unique, very unique. According to Amazon reviewers, Shibari’s taste is not very unpleasant. Most people describe its taste as similar to that of black licorice. Viscosity – Just as Shibari’s tastes is uncommon, so is its thickness/viscosity. It is neither a pure gel nor a pure liquid. The lube seems to combine properties of gel and liquid. It spills out rather easily and quickly and its consistency is sort of gooey. Ingredients – Our sexy bottle says that the lube is made up of aqua or purified water, propylene glycol, glycerin, Methylparaben, propylparaben, diazolidinyl, hydroxyethylcellulose and urea. Is it natural? – A natural product will hardly contain a manmade ingredient. Based on what is listed above as ingredients, you can clearly see glycerin and parabens (Methyparaben and propylparaben), for instance, which are artificial. So there you have it Shibari is gooey tastes like black licorice and is not entirely natural. You may agree with one of more of these assertions. p.s. These #Random posts are just for fun and you shouldn't take them seriously.
