Caught in the Web


So this wasn’t actually the creepiest photo from the ones I shot last night for the Halloween themed Sinful Sunday (I also shot some with a weird mask.) But I’ve decided to save the others and possibly enter one into a show for class…but you know I like to take weird, creepy self portraits, so of course there will always be more…and I hope you enjoy this one! 🙂

Caught in the Web was featured as a top image in the Sinful Sunday weekly round-up; thanks Molly!

Sinful Sunday





This past weekend at EroticonUSA, I met Graydancer, who showed Jake how to tie me up…at a restaurant…in front of a bunch of people!  I loved it.  (I also had the pleasure of being tied up by Graydancer & a couple of new friends as well.) We also attended his amazing session, Hands on Kink, and while Jake was already curious about rope bondage before, he is very eager to learn now! He bought one of Graydancer’s DVDs and used some of the rope that Lori gave us to give me a quick tie up last night. I got this shot before my wrists were tied as well…

I couldn’t decide which version of the photo I like best, so let me know what you think!



I go through phases in creativity (and in life.) Sometimes I focus on photography, sometimes I write, write, write, and sometimes I limit myself on both and simply open myself up to inspiration. Lately I’ve been in a writing intensive phase and haven’t taken a lot of photos. I also haven’t gone out much lately. Mostly I’ve been at home, working, writing and chillin’ with my cat. I almost didn’t post anything for Sinful Sunday, but then I decided this image is a perfect depiction of  my mood during the past few weeks…

Sushi and Boobs

pennysblog_sushiandboobsYesterday I had fun eating sushi, wearing Thai nipple clamps, and shooting photos, simultaneously. I didn’t put them on very tight, but they still stung quite a bit by the time I removed them, in a good way though!

I’m also submitting this as my 1st Boobday photo, a meme I’ve been meaning to participate in for awhile now.

So… sushi & boobs anyone?


Cold Metal

So I guess I’ve been living under a rock, because I only recently discovered the Kink of the Week  meme, and sadly I’ve already missed some of my favorites (like Foot Fetish & Face Slapping!)

This week’s theme is Knife Play. While I haven’t tried knife or blood play, thinking or reading about it or seeing photos portraying it excites me. Jake has ripped panties off of me before, and I would love to have him cut some panties or maybe even clothes off of me (after all, why else does he carry around that pocket knife everywhere?) I also have fantasies similar to Molly’s, where I am captured and threatened, but not actually hurt.  I’m not really interested in cutting or marking, but I can definitely see the appeal of knife play.

When I recently shot my Sin City self portraits, I pulled out a knife because I thought it would make a perfect prop and help me get into the tough girl mindset that I wanted to portray. I often feel like different sides of my personality come out from my subconscious when I shoot self portraits, and all of a sudden I was  tracing my skin with the blade, biting it, licking it. I felt a connection with the knife, with the sharpness of the blade, the power in wielding it, and the danger that seemed to radiate from the cold metal. I’ve already shared some of the resulting images in my Sin City & Shellie posts, but I also ended up with some images with a darker feel that I haven’t shared yet…like these:




What are your thoughts on knife play? Scary, sexy, dangerous? Or some combination of the above?
