  1. Louis Icart (1888 - 1950) was a French painter who reached his peak of popularity in the late 1920s in Europe and America and his work was seen as synonymous with the Art Deco movement. He painted beautiful young women in sensual, erotic poses, sometimes with other women, often with an implication of same-sex sexuality. His women wore glamorous clothing and were often shown with exotic and beautiful animals - horses, cats, dogs and birds which suggested an intimate playfulness.
  2. I love browsing in Mountain Equipment Co-op. I'm not much of an outdoors person (other than endurance walking and hiking) but I feel the seduction of the cool, and high quality things they sell.
  3. Psychology Today has a brief, but interesting article on Skirt Club Understanding Skirt Club: What can an all-women's sex party teach us about our deepest selves? https://www.psychologytoday.com/blog/stepmonster/201705/understanding-skirt-club I think, yes!

  5. We went for a hike to a beautiful marsh but we forgot the muskol. The skitters were thick! 

  6. This is very a good point. Married women who haven't had much if any experience with a woman may have a strong desire for the novelty of being with a woman and also I think it could be seen as more attainable with respect to the wishes of her husband. I've seen research which shows that men are much less jealous of the idea of their partners being with another women than with a man, which probably has evolutionary origins about paternity assurance.
  7. I'm not sure that I believe in love at first sight but I have no doubt whatsoever about book-love at first sight. This was confirmed for me recently when I became aware of a book published only 8 days ago on May 9, 2017. The book in question is The Evolution of Beauty: How Darwin's Forgotten Theory of Mate Choice Shapes the Animal World - and Us by ornithologist Richard O. Prum. The early reviewers on Amazon are raving about this book - so far it's average rating is 5 out of 5 stars. I've read the first 2 chapters and I'd have to agree - it's superlative. https://www.amazon.com/Evolution-Beauty-Darwins-Forgotten-Theory/dp/0385537212/ref What is it about? Charles Darwin wrote a second book after The Origin of Species titled The Descent of Man, and Selection in Relation to Sex which was largely vilified and/or ignored by scientists for the past 145 years since it was published in 1871. In it Darwin proposed a second distinct engine of evolutionary change operating alongside natural selection called sexual selection which posited that sexual choice in mates, usually by the female in species, is responsible for the beauty we see in nature. When it was first published the idea that females could be a major driving factor in evolution was incomprehensible to patriarchal Victorian society. In this book Prum uses many examples from his lifelong career as a field ornithologist to show that Darwin was right all along and he had in fact written not one, but two revolutionary books about evolution and life. I'll write another fuller blog post after reading and digesting this wonderful book. A Blue Jay - I see these birds frequently when I go for walks in the forest ravine near my home.

      Happy mothers day too.

  10. Enjoying coffee and wondering what bizarre movie HeartChakra watched
  11. The cover story for the current NYTimes Magazine is about open marriages - this is a pretty high-profile exposure for the lifestyle. Is this going to be the next major area for social change, after the revolution in LGBT acceptance? Is an Open Marriage a Happier Marriage? What the experiences of nonmonogamous couples can tell us about jealousy, love, desire and trust. by Susan Dominus May 11, 2017 https://www.nytimes.com/2017/05/11/magazine/is-an-open-marriage-a-happier-marriage.html?_r=0
