One in Ten People In The World Is A Modern Day Slave

One in ten people in the world today is a slave. The practice continues to exist because we profit and slaves are powerless. A glance at the various modern day forms of slavery.

inscription Freedom is never given voluntarily by the oppressor;  It must be demanded by the oppressed.  Martin Luther King, 1963
Freedom is never given voluntarily by the oppressor; It must be demanded by the oppressed.
– Martin Luther King, 1963

December, season of love, happiness and joy, just started but we are already thinking of Christmas. Perhaps dreaming of spending the holidays with our loved ones. Me, I'm hoping my girl and me get back together. For good this time.

But this second day of December is not nearly as festive as the last days of the year. Today is the International Day for the Abolition of Slavery. Wasn't that abolished long ago? Yes, but that doesn't mean it doesn't exist any more. We kinksters should pause for a minute and remember what slavery actually means. It is not all fun and games. Au contraire it is one of the most horrific things that exists on this planet.

Stanton Stamps from Kinky Kyrgyzstan

According to Vintage Sleaze Kyrgyzstan has published stamps with Eric Stanton drawings on it. I guess the economic crisis is hurting the central Asian republic too.


Read the full story here:
Vintage Sleaze: Eric Stanton postage stamps from Kyrgyzstan?: Eric Stanton postage stamps. Why the heck would a country issue postage stamps with the bizarre fetish illustrations of Eric Stanton?

Karosta Prison Hotel, Latvia

Built around 1900, the Karosta Prison was initially used as an infirmary then converted into a prison. It's history was so gruesome, even the solitary confinement room featured a cryptic message above the door: ‘izeja no elles’, Latvian for ‘exit from hell’.
 

Not exactly a relaxing vacation: Inside the hotel converted from a prison where guests are punished with physical exercise for the full 'inmate experience.'

I must admit the idea appeals to me but after I saw the photo's of male guards I quickly changed my mind. If only the prison was staffed with female officers...

Research Shows: Kink is Good for You

According to new research from the Netherlands (where else?), the psychological profile of people who participate in bdsm “is characterized by a set of balanced, autonomous, and beneficial personality characteristics.” Compared to those who engage in more mainstream sexual behavior, such aficionados report “a higher level of subjective well-being.”

The researchers found that “BDSM participants as a group are, compared with non-BDSM participants, less neurotic, more extroverted, more open to new experiences, more conscientious, yet less agreeable,”
“Finally, the subjective well-being of BDSM participants was higher than that of the control group. Together, these findings suggest that BDSM practitioners are characterized by greater psychological and interpersonal strength and autonomy.”
As a final note the researchers conclude that "BDSM scores were generally more favourably for those with a dominant than a submissive role."

I knew it. Kink is good for you. Still ain't gonna tell mum about my Saturday nights.

How Many Kinky People Are There?

For a long time I have been wondering how many kinky people there are in the world. Just out of curiosity. Google cannot answer my question. I am still wondering though. So here is my theory: if you are kinky and have a Facebook account, you also have a Fetlife account.

The embodiment of kinky: The Addams Family


Compare to Facebook
According to their own site Facebook has 1.15 billion monthly active users as of June 2013. I cannot find a good estimate for the number of active Fetlife users but on their site they boast 2,264,946 member (August 2013). If you divide 2.2 million by 1.2 billion you have an upper limit of 0.4 per cent of the global population being kinksters. But as they say in Dutchland: that is comparing apples and pears. Unfortunately I cannot find the numbers right now but there are several statistics claiming the number of active users on Fetlife varies between 250,000 and 500,000. If we assume the correct number is 500,000 about 0.04 per cent of all people in the world is kinky which makes for 2.8 million of us. A rounding error creeps in right away. If that number is correct over three quarters of all kinky people are on Fetlife. That sounds like a lot.

Dutchland is not so kinky
Breaking down the statistics for Dutchland with about 17 million people it would mean there are 17mln * 0.04% = 6800 kinksters living in that beautiful flat country. That does not sound right, does it? If anyone knows of a better estimate, please let me know.

Kinky Lego: Fifty Shades Of Bricks

As a child, I played with Lego. These days I spend a lot of time on silly stuff, but these folks redefine the meaning of procrastination. I especially love the first one. Fifty Shades of bricks, guess there is no escape from fifty shades, wherever you go. Several images are interrogation scenes from Abu Ghraib and Guantanamo Bay created by Legofesto. The artist created the scenes to express her concern about the war on terror. She also aims to give the abused a voice.

Viagra for Women: Yes We Can. But Should We?

Lust reaches us through our eyes. Desire comes from the heart. Whatever you are looking for, a pill can never substitute either. Nor should it.

Fifty years ago the birth control pill gave woman sexual freedom, Twenty years ago viagra for men was introduced. The next step seems to be a pill for woman that increases their libido.

The male variety has not to do with desire. It is about body mechanics.


The New York Times just published a long read about Viagra for women. The drug is called Lybrido.  Unexcited? There May Be a Pill for That. Lybrido is currently undergoing testing to see if it can be approved. It works on the brain creating [artificial] desire. Viagra for men works on the body but only when the man is already aroused. The article is rather long and boring. The comments however are the icing on the cake. A quick reading shows most people do not like the idea.

"How about a male less desire drug?" comments one reader. Others fear that women get pressured into taking pills.

Whether vanilla or kinky, sex in a relationship is essential. Sex is great fun. It brings two people closer to one another, strengthening and reinforcing their bond. At first I thought the drug was a good thing. That was before I realized how commerce, TV and social media will pressure people into taking the drug. After all we all want to be normal and average...

Sexual Chocolate Wine

This commercial from Slo Down Wines claims their 2011  sexual chocolate wine goes great with equestrianism. Really? Interesting! Why? Must be the fifty shades of grey effect. See the clip here.

Your Own Spankalicious Tardis Paddle

Exophilia is the love for extra-terrestrial life forms. I wonder if there is a specific term for a doctor Who fetish. 

Geeks love Doctor Who and kinksters apparently too. Found this paddle on Tumblr. Clearly some one with too much time on their hands created their own spankalicious tardis. Doctor's orders. Lol.

Light sculpture by Forms in Nature

This light sculpture definitely has the wow factor. Forms in Nature is an artwork with a light source surrounded by a dense and unruly tree and root system created in miniature sculpture. The forest is mirrored around it’s horizontal central axis and forms a circle 360 degrees around the light source and thereby leads one onto the notion of a real world versus an underworld.

Dominance In Space: The secret logs of Mistress Janeway

Xena the Warrior Princess and Buffy the Vampire Slayer are action heroines with dominatrix overtones [1]. So is Captain Janeway. One talented fan made that idea come true. Captain Janeway by day. Mistress Janeway by night.

In the 1990s Star Trek dominated the tv screens of sci-fi fans. Star Trek Voyager began her journey in 1995 with Kate Mulgrew as Captain Kathryn Janeway, the first female commanding officer in a leading role of a Star Trek series. I watched it whenever I could. Years later I saw the Trekkies documentary. Clearly kinky people are not the only ones who love to dress up. It had a short segment on Captain Janeway as a dominatrix.

Baucis & Philemon: Not Your Average Hollywood Love Story

One of the worst kink clichés is "the deepest love is between a domme and a sub." Too bad if you are one of 7 billion people who is not into BDSM. You are forever condemned to an inferior kind of love. How can the depth of your love depend on your sexual preference?

Hollywood does not do a better job. Most movies are about young, attractive people who have to overcome some kind of obstacle before everlasting bliss starts. For a love story of a different kind look at the ancient Greeks.

My Naughty Boy Avatar

My avatar does not have my picture. It may look a little boring but I did give it some thought. The words "naughty boy" are there for a reason too.

Choices: Why My Tumblr Describes Me

Selecting dozens of images for my photo blog every day, reveals a lot about me and my preferences, often unintentionally Interested observers can find out things about me, I didn't know myself. Pretty cool but also scary.


As far as kink goes I prefer pictures over words. I enjoy a good story but in the end I prefer images. Unless somebody is a gifted writer, a picture tells a thousand words. At the beginning of 2013 I started my own Tumblr blog. I love it: The diversity, the passion with which people express what they like about kink, the beauty if it all.

In selecting images, you reveal who you are.

11dutch: What's in a Name?

Of course the name 11dutch has special meaning. Silly question. It all started with me opening a Twitter account. I needed a nom de plume and was reminded of an old fairy tale. It is a funny story but you can skip it if you like.
