For those fortunate enough to behold a woman adorned in red lingerie, the experience is nothing short of mesmerizing. The color’s vibrancy draws the eye like a moth to a flame, inviting admiration and desire in equal measure.

Moreover, red lingerie transcends boundaries of age, size, and shape, making it accessible to women of all walks of life. Regardless of individual style or preference, there exists a shade of red and a style of lingerie to suit every woman’s unique tastes and desires. From classic crimson to deep burgundy, the spectrum of red hues offers endless possibilities for self-expression and exploration.

Travel Days: Memories of 1996


Finding myself naked on the roof of a gentleman’s club in Athens, Greece, was certainly not how I envisioned spending the summer of ’96.

The journey to Athens started while I was working the feature circuit in Canada. I had heard from fellow dancers that one could make substantial money in places like Japan, Macau, or Greece without compromising one’s personal boundaries. Tempted by tales of earnings over $30,000 a month plus tips, and enticed by stories of dancers returning with piles of cash and the latest gadgets, a few girlfriends and I auditioned through our agency in the plush executive suites of Vancouver hotels for a three-month stint abroad.

When an opportunity arose to meet a talent scout for a Japanese club, my friend Misty—who was absolutely stunning with her petite frame, long blonde hair, and natural beauty—and I attended the audition. While she was immediately selected, I faced a request from the scout to undress to my comfort level, which did not include removing my panties. Ultimately, I wasn’t picked for Japan, which was disappointing as Misty was the first real friend I had made in Canada. She had an impressive work ethic and aimed to own a franchise of the Original Pancake House, a place she adored. Misty was the one who introduced me to Dutch Baby pancakes, which remain my favorite to this day.

Instead, I landed a three-month gig at a club in Athens, accompanied by Georgia Peach, a colorful character with a tough exterior whose estranged husband was part of a famous motorcycle gang. Georgia was fiercely independent, the first wife in her husband’s chapter to get her own Harley Davidson—a rare feat at the time. She advised against getting too involved with the bikers, a tip I took seriously given her insights and my own prior knowledge of the organization.

Our trip included a 10-hour layover in London, where Georgia and I explored the city on a double-decker bus, taking in sights like Big Ben and Buckingham Palace, and sampling some classic fish and chips before continuing on to Greece. Upon arrival, we learned we’d be staying in a small guest house behind a large residence less convenient than a hotel, it required expensive taxi rides to the club and adherence to a strict curfew. One morning, returning late, we narrowly escaped an encounter with the estate’s guard dogs, thanks to the separating distance of a large swimming pool.

Rehearsals filled our weekdays. While some dancers easily picked up the routines due to their experience, others like myself found it challenging, especially since I wasn’t skilled in pole dancing, making group choreography mandatory. The club was often quiet—a result, we later learned, of the owners not paying off the local mob, which explained the sparse clientele. Despite efforts, the earnings were far below expectations. The regulars knew of the club’s tip policy and discreetly passed us cash folded into small squares, which I learned to stash in my knee-high boots—a wardrobe choice that soon became a daily necessity.

We had a diverse group of dancers from Canada, America, and Eastern Europe, who all bonded well. My heart went out to those who couldn’t leave or chose to stay because even a little money was better than none. Most of the girls sent money back to their families. During my stay, two sisters introduced me to a charming man named Dragon—indeed, his real name.

Increasingly wary, we were often pressured to hand over our passports for “safekeeping.” I knew better than to relinquish mine. One night, just after a performance and while clad only in my boots, we were tipped off about an impending police raid. In a frenzy, we were led along a hidden path that took us up to the roof where we hid for hours, shivering and fearing arrest for working illegally.

Lying there under the stars, naked and cold, I resolved to find a way out of Athens. Little did I know that escaping to surprise my boyfriend, Dragon, in Yugoslavia would be my way out. It turned out that while club security was searching for me at the airport expecting me to return to Canada, I was at another, heading to a completely different destination. This move effectively marked my escape from the club and its questionable practices, and unknowingly, set me on a path to a new chapter in my life.

Unveiling The Mystery: Blindfolded


In the realm of intimacy, desires can take myriad forms, often transcending the conventional. One such enigmatic preference is the allure of being blindfolded during sexual encounters, a choice that fascinates and intrigues many. While it might seem unconventional to some, there are profound psychological and physiological reasons why some women find pleasure in this sensory deprivation.

Firstly, the act of being blindfolded can heighten sensory perception. By removing the sense of sight, other senses become more acute, intensifying the experience of touch, smell, taste, and sound. Every caress, whisper, and breath against the skin becomes amplified, leading to a more immersive and exhilarating encounter. This sensory amplification can create a heightened state of arousal and anticipation, deepening intimacy and connection between partners.

Secondly, relinquishing control can be a potent aphrodisiac. For many women, being blindfolded symbolizes trust and surrender, allowing them to fully immerse themselves in the moment without the distractions of the outside world. By placing their trust in their partner, they can explore their deepest desires and fantasies in a safe and consensual environment. This surrender to pleasure can be incredibly liberating, empowering women to embrace their sexuality without inhibition.

Furthermore, the element of surprise adds an element of excitement and novelty to sexual encounters. When sight is removed, every touch and sensation becomes unpredictable, creating an element of suspense and anticipation. This element of surprise can evoke a sense of adventure and thrill, enhancing the overall experience and making it more memorable.

Additionally, being blindfolded can serve as a form of escapism from the pressures and stresses of everyday life. In a world filled with constant stimulation and distractions, the act of surrendering control and allowing oneself to be fully present in the moment can be incredibly cathartic. By focusing solely on the sensations and pleasures at hand, women can experience a sense of freedom and release, allowing them to temporarily escape reality and immerse themselves in pure pleasure.

Ultimately, the allure of being blindfolded during sex is deeply personal and varies from individual to individual. For some, it’s about enhancing sensory perception and intensifying arousal. For others, it’s about trust, surrender, and the thrill of the unknown. Whatever the reason, the act of being blindfolded adds a layer of excitement and intimacy to sexual encounters, allowing women to explore their desires and fantasies in a safe and consensual way.

My Cloak of Invisibility


  I can barely remember the timid little girl I was before I discovered I had the power. The power to disappear. The power of invisibility. In the beginning, I stumbled through  this alternate  universe to which my power gave me access  and used it in silly ways; listening  in on the cool kids’ conversations or peeking at my classmates’ grades. But It wasn’t long before I progressed to voyeurism and to my utter delight, I discovered which students  were cutting class to smoke, which were sneaking off  to masturbate and which were even pleasuring each other. Oh this new game would soon become  much more exciting  than I had ever anticipated.

I grew bolder with the confidence my invisibility allowed me. There were no limits.  I could wear anything I wanted. I could do anything I wanted. The unseen world is judgement free so my ego slipped away and my sexual id stepped into its place. Self consciousness gone. I hunted for  play partners that oozed sexuality. I took in their smell, their taste, their bodies. No eyes on me meant I could do this anywhere. And I discovered that I particularly liked to be in the most public places.

One night in Paris as I was on the prowl, I felt an inextricable pull towards an unlikely prey –  a beautiful yet awkwardly shy man who had locked eyes with me. I could feel the electricity between us as I approached. I ran my fingertips over his chest, felt the curve of his ass, and slid down his thighs to his calves. I ran my nose up the inside of his leg and felt his increasing bulge. I breathed in his essence as I lingered over his armpit. I was on fire, every button pushed. When I looked back at his face, his eyes were locked on me, skin flushed and dewey with nervous sweat. “Can you see me?”, I asked. He nervously looked around to see who was watching us, swallowed hard, and answered “Yes”. “Don’t worry, no one else can”. I kept my eyes locked on this marvel who had stepped through my cloak of invisibility as I slid my hand into his pants and felt his rock hard cock. My tongue teased his quivering lip before kissing him deeply. I opened his shirt, buried my face in his chest hair and took his nipple between my teeth. Electricity shot through him and he let out a loud gasp.. I unzipped my dress. His eyes darted around the room again. “Don’t worry, they can’t see you either”.  His neck  kisses started off tender and became more ravaging as he moved to my breasts-expertly working my nipples. My clit was at attention and I could feel the juices running down the inside of my thighs. “I have to taste you”, he whispered. “Yes you do” I replied and gently pushed him down between my shaking thighs balancing myself with my right leg over his shoulder . He parted my pussy lips with the bridge of his nose, cocked his head back, and took a long slow taste  before teasing my clit mercilessly. He slid two thick fingers inside me stroking my ‘ON” switch and I exploded, ejaculating profusely. He bathed in my cum soaking his face and hair.

A moment of inhibition struck and his head snapped from left to right. I assured him that we were unseen. We were in a parallel universe and this was a game where only we made up the rules. I pulled him up off the floor,”Your turn”.  His clothes were off. I pushed him onto his back and  worked his beautiful cock with my tongue  nearly swallowing him. My pussy was insatiable. I rode him like waves on the sand-rolling back and then crashing down on him over and over again spraying  cum all over his body . I slid off his cock. The look on his face begged me not to go. I nestled myself between his legs with one over my shoulder. I drooled on my middle finger and slid it gently but deeply into his ass stroking his prostate as my mouth closed around his erection. Electricity shot through his body and out of nipples and cock. He exploded. 

We lay there for a moment transfixed. No longer shy or self conscious.  Supremely satisfied. “Now the score is even 1:1. Want to play again?”

Unravelling The Allure: The Sensual History of The Corset

For centuries, the corset has captivated the imagination, adorning the bodies of women across various cultures and eras. This garment, with its intricate lacing and sculpted silhouette, has transcended mere functionality, becoming a symbol of desire, seduction, and feminine mystique. Beneath the alluring façade of the corset lies a rich tapestry of history, one that interweaves fashion, power, and a profound exploration of the female form.

The origins of the corset can be traced back to the ancient civilizations of Greece and Rome, where women employed rudimentary forms of body-shaping garments. However, it was during the 16th century that the corset truly came into its own, evolving from a simple undergarment into a meticulously crafted piece of art. The Renaissance era witnessed a renaissance of the female silhouette, as the corset became an integral part of the aristocratic wardrobe, accentuating the hourglass figure and projecting an aura of sophistication and wealth.

As the centuries unfolded, the corset’s design underwent a myriad of transformations, mirroring the changing ideals of beauty and societal norms. In the 18th century, the corset embraced a more exaggerated shape, cinching the waist to an almost unnatural degree, reflecting the era’s obsession with a tiny waistline. This trend reached its zenith during the Victorian era, where the corset became a symbol of propriety and restraint, encasing the female form in a rigid, unyielding embrace.

Yet, beneath the veneer of respectability, the corset harbored a secret allure. Its ability to sculpt and accentuate the curves of the female body ignited a sensual undercurrent, becoming a source of fascination and desire. Artists and writers alike were captivated by the corset’s power, immortalizing its seductive lines in paintings, literature, and the collective cultural consciousness.

As the 20th century dawned, the corset underwent a profound transformation, shedding its restrictive shackles and embracing a new era of liberation. Designers such as Paul Poiret and Coco Chanel challenged traditional notions of femininity, introducing looser silhouettes and freeing women from the confines of the corset. However, the corset’s allure remained undiminished, as it transcended its utilitarian origins and emerged as a symbol of empowerment and seduction.

Today, the corset has been reinvented and reimagined, gracing the runways of haute couture fashion shows and adorning the bodies of modern-day icons. From the intricate corsetry of Jean Paul Gaultier to the daring designs of Vivienne Westwood, the corset continues to captivate and intrigue, its sensual history intertwined with the ever-evolving ideals of beauty and femininity.

In the end, the allure of the corset lies not merely in its physical form but in its ability to evoke desire, power, and a celebration of the female spirit. It is a garment that has transcended time and trends, weaving a narrative of seduction, restraint, and ultimately, liberation.
