I love the way I’ve framed this image, the way my body anchors it and weighs it down almost. I like seeing how the mattress responds to my presence, dipping a little under my weight. I look lush and soft and touchable. My ass curves up nicely and my legs look strong and long. But… … [Read more…]
I remember one time hearing a fitness trainer describe the well-muscled back of a woman as looking like an upside down Christmas tree.

And while I didn’t have a nightgown precisely like this as a kid, it brought to mind warm winter nights by the fire and Caroline Ingalls fantasies, so I found a (decidedly cheaper) flannel nightgown for myself. It’s just as … [Read more…]
