This week is sort of a soft opening for my office. We’re figuring out how things will work in the “new normal”. The schedule has some people in the office and some people watching webinars at home each day. Next week, everyone will be back in the office, although I question the theory that wearing a mask negates the need for social distancing. None of that applies to me. I have the ultimate social distancing of working from home. The bosses have made it clear that it’s a temporary thing. I’m hoping to stay out of the office until the governor decides it’s safer to venture out.

Since I’m home, Lion and I are still together and still safe. I have to venture out to Costco for the dog’s prescription and to the grocery store for our prescriptions, but we’re still trying to avoid going out as much as possible. I do miss going out to eat once in a while, but we’re having restaurant quality meals from Hello Fresh! so we’re not suffering at all. As a matter of fact, the other night I said if we won the lottery and could do anything in the world, virus notwithstanding, we’d probably be doing exactly what we’re doing right now. Lion agreed.

The only things I would change at this point is our seemingly endless tiredness and Lion’s lack of desire for sex. I’m assuming his lack of desire is at least partially due to his tiredness. Last night I snuggled with him and played with my weenie. I know rubbing his balls puts him to sleep, but he was snoozing as my weenie was getting hard. How does that work? I won’t take it personally. I know it’s not a statement on how boring my rubbing my weenie is. We’re both just out of it lately.

[Lion — Many years ago a lover discovered that if she gently rubbed my balls I would fall asleep. It’s weird but still works.]

I’m hoping, since I’m doing work now, I’ll be a little more “involved”. The problem with that is I’m doing some incredibly boring work. It’s not mentally engaging at all unless I make a mistake, which I do because it’s so boring.

Snap out of it!

Anyway, if I manage to convince myself that things are getting back to normal with work, maybe I won’t be so tired. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it.

I don’t know what Lion does to keep himself busy. He putters on his computer. He’s probably reading blogs and news articles. His routine will have him in the bedroom in a little while to watch TV. Then I’ll hear him softly snoring. That’s as exciting as it gets around here, unfortunately.

I have another Zoom meeting at 2 and then maybe I’ll finish waxing Lion. We stopped the other day because he was uncomfortable. Eventually I’ll get his whole body smooth as a baby’s butt. Then he’ll probably need another hair cut. Oh, and the lawn needs to be mowed. A lioness’s waxing and trimming work is never done.

We’ve both had on-and-off digestive issues. As a result, I haven’t had any sexual attention since my orgasm last week. I’m not complaining. I haven’t been very interested. That doesn’t mean I won’t be interested when Mrs. Lion is ready, just means that I don’t seem all that ready to go so far. It’s been five days since I came. This is an exceptionally long period of time without sexual contact for us. I don’t know if this is a problem or just an accident. I don’t see any long-term trend pointing to more and more time passing between orgasms. In the short term, my waiting period has gone up by at least three days. It could be biological or perhaps emotional.

I realize this isn’t a piece of particularly interesting news on a blog like ours. However, it is what it is. The key element of fun in orgasm control is conflict. If the male partner wants to have an orgasm and the female makes him wait, it makes for interesting reading. In other words,  one party has to want it and the other not so much. When Mrs. Lion is making no move to do anything with me and I’m completely happy with that situation, there is no conflict or tension, therefore no sexy fun.

Neither of us is sleeping very well. Not sure what the problem could be. But we are both sleep-deprived right now. That contributes to my lack of libido. I’m pretty sure other couples go through things like this too. Even other bloggers have lulls in the action. Our commitment to daily journaling hangs this dirty linen on the line for all to see.

As of this morning, I am 75% waxed. On Tuesday, Mrs. Lion started to do the back side of me. She got through my butt, my back, and the back of one leg. I asked her to stop I was getting uncomfortable lying on my stomach on the massage table. I expect that she will resume today. I have to admit that I like the way my chest looks with no hair. I have tiny nipples and I like their contrast with my rather fair skin. I’m allowed a little bit of vanity, right?

Whenever we publish a post, it goes out as an announcement on twitter. I’ve discovered that if the first picture in any post is of genitals, particularly male genitals, twitter will somehow suppress any new people following my account. If I don’t publish any naughty pictures for a while, followers flock to us. This is typical of social network manipulation. Still, it’s a good idea to follow us if you want immediate notification of new posts. Another way is to simply subscribe to our posts. Just put your email address in the box at the top right of the page and you will be notified each time we publish.

Hopefully, by tomorrow, I’ll have much more interesting things to talk about.

This is my first week back to work since being furloughed. It’s been weird. It took me until today to get logged in to my office remotely. Part of that was my fault. It’s amazing what you forget in just three weeks away from the office. I guess part of it was that I wasn’t actually in the office. Last year, when Lion had neck surgery, I was out for three weeks and went right back to work with no trouble. I think I was focusing too much on the remote part and forgot a step needed to log in. The other weird part is Zoom meetings. Because we’re not fully back to work until next week, some of the staff are out of the office, but management is trying to make sure everyone is on the same page. We’re having meetings Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, plus I finally got logged in to do some actual work, plus Lion still needs to be waxed, plus, plus, plus. And either one of us or the other hasn’t been feeling well since whenever Lion had his orgasm, so everything seems to be in limbo.

After my meeting yesterday, I waxed part of Lion’s back and down the back of one leg. He asked to stop because he was uncomfortable being on his tummy. His shoulder was in a weird position. I had the wax melted and the room was heating up after my meeting this afternoon, but Lion said there’s no rush. I don’t know if he’s not feeling well or if he’s reacting to my not feeling particularly well. We’ve both had stomach issues and general aches and pains. He snoozes a bit in the evening and I was exhausted but didn’t actually fall asleep until bedtime. We both woke up a few times and even the dog was having some trouble. We’re just a mess.

I hope we’ll be in better shape tonight. Even if Lion isn’t horny, we should at least snuggle a bit. I’d hate to think we’re letting life intrude too much. I did promise Lion that we’d play more. It just hasn’t worked out that way. Assuming our stomachs cooperate, I think we should be able to do something. He doesn’t have to be horny for me to play with my weenie. Tonight’s “assignment” definitely is to snuggle and go from there. While we both like staying home together full time, I think it’s throwing us off our game.

It shouldn’t come as a surprise that bloggers tend to be fairly egotistical. Let’s face it, blogging is the 21st-century version of the vanity press. We bloggers pay to put our words in front of the public. There are no editors or publishers to filter what we say, and it shows. I like the entire concept. Obviously I do. It costs real money to build and maintain the site. Mrs. Lion and I put in many hours of work writing each week. We get no return from this. We don’t get all that much feedback either. But still, we persevere.

Bloggers tend to be very possessive of their audiences. Very few make reference to the writings of others. Some, like us, do list other blogs that might interest our readers. Others avoid any mention of any other writers. Is there a fear that if I point you to another blog, you may not come back here? I’m sure that’s part of it. The bigger part has to do with bragging rights. Various services measure our readership. Most of the companies that provide blogging software also provide information about how many people are reading. Let’s face it, it’s a popularity contest. Every time I point you to another blog, that blog gets one more reader and it may become more popular than us.

So what.

Some inventive bloggers have created what they call “communities”. These people stoke their egos by providing topics for others to write about and running “contests” to determine which blogs are the most popular. I avoid them like the plague. They’re just another version of ego-tripping. They gain followers by dangling the carrot of being ranked as the best “sex blog”. They even issue little badges people can put on their sites. Nope, not what I want.

Sometimes I find myself sucked into this too. I try to mention other bloggers when I’ve read stuff that I find particularly interesting. I’m in contact with a couple of them and I value their friendship and feedback. There are some blogs called “aggregators”. They make use of the same sort of software I use when I list blogs I like. Two that I particularly like are Keyheld and Sheheld. They list sites featuring male chastity and female-led relationships. Without a doubt, most of the listings are for bloggers I don’t particularly enjoy reading, but that’s simply my taste.

More importantly, many of these blogs often list more blogs those people read. You can find real gems that way. The best sources of new places to look at are the actual posts themselves. Some bloggers are very good about pointing their readers at interesting reading material. Two blogs I’ve recently discovered are: “Go Eat a Carrot” and “Domestic Discipline“. Both are kind of quirky and amusing to read.

I like good writing. Both Mrs. Lion and I aspire to be good writers. We realize that writing a column each day isn’t going to turn out as great literature. We also understand that our lives aren’t so filled with hot, sexual activity that we could give our readers boners every day. For my part, I just want to share what’s going on inside and outside of me. I’ve decided to devote more writing to talking about the nonsexual part of my life as well as continuing the ongoing saga of my chastity and submission to Mrs. Lion.

In the meantime please keep your eyes open for interesting reads. I’d love to learn about new resources and entertainments.
