So I’d planned on writing something longer, but the sweet summer heat got to me and I’m being lazy.
But – I pulled from the archive an older post that stirred a lot of comments when I first wrote it, just over a year ago. Let’s see what the new kids have to say. (Or, let’s hear what the longer-term readers think about the matter one year later.)
Post comments here, though, so we don’t have to click back to read them.

Talking to strangers: eye contact and the street-corner flirtation.

The new column. I'm picking on my silly callers again.

I'm thinking of interview question to ask the brave souls who volunteered.

I'm also thinking about a new dress. Now, what I should buy is something classic and practical, like this black D&G number. The cut will flatter me, the style won't date much, and I could wear it anywhere, any season.

So why do I have an urge for this madly impractical Pucci number? But can't you just see it with thigh-high boots?

Another note to clients: Late July and August are traditionally slow times of year in the sex industry. (At least in Seattle.) People are away on vacation, or they’re just spending time outside while it’s sunny. So unlike most of the rest of the year, in the late summer, I am often not booked 4 or 5 days out.

Thus, if you’re a guy who can’t book far ahead and has had trouble getting in to see me because of that, this would be the time of year to call me and ask for a next-day appointment with me. *

(*I actually granted someone a same-day appointment the other day, and wouldn’t you know, I wound being sorry I had done so. But that’s a story for another day.)


I’m continuing to clean out stacked-up emails, so look for lots of letter-answering in the next few days as I wade through my “Saved Emails” file.

I have a bombshelter (in Seattle) (30 foot tunnel -cinderblock & cement- into the hill behind my house, small room, big room, complete with escape hatch), and really have no use for it. I have been considering renting it out- only real use I can think of (and friends keep suggesting) is as a dungeon. Unfortunately, I'm not into using it for that purpose myself, however, I think anyone inclined in that direction would probably get excited at the prospect. How would I go about renting it out? I would prefer to rent it to the same person(s) on a regular basis. And how much does one charge for the pleasure of a real bomb shelter?

What an interesting question. I have no idea what you should charge, but I’m sure someone would love it. What’s the square footage like? How high is the ceiling? Is it soundproof? Would you let people put in bondage furniture, or install suspension points in the ceiling? How many people do you think would fit in there at any one time?

If anyone’s interested, drop me a note and I’ll forward your email along to this bomb-shelter owner.
