Happy Hooker?

I was a bit surprised at Lion’s reaction to being able to put off the Box O’Fun. I figured it was a way for him to tell me if he was up for play or not. I was keeping up my end of the bargain by offering, but he’d be able to beg off if he wasn’t feeling well or wasn’t horny, etc. I never envisioned it as a way for him to pay for sex.

While the things in the Box O’Fun are mostly painful things, Lion likes pain. He’ll never admit to it, of course, but why else would he like having his balls tied tightly or being spanked? He’s the one who came up with most of these tortures. The two that come to mind that as my additions are Velcro and the tiny clothespins. I guess they’re the evilest, but they’re only variations of things he’s suggested. I’ve recently added coconut oil masturbation to the box. How is that paying for sex? [Lion — Maybe that’s sexual green stamps.]

I don’t really mind his thinking. As a character in one of our favorite sitcoms said when she was asked if it bothered her that her husband was fantasizing about another woman during sex, “He can think about whoever he wants. I’m thinking about Denzel Washington.” He can think he’s paying for sex. I’m thinking I’ve done my job by offering. I guess it works out just fine.

I’m more concerned that I haven’t come up with any more ideas for the Box O’Fun. I mean, Lion thinks I do too much cock and ball torture. There is a lot of it in the box. But there’s also pegging, figging and butt plug cards in there. We eliminated them from the box recently because of Lion’s intestinal issues. If he’s okay to continue with that, I’ll add them back in. Obviously, we’ll have to get some ginger for figging, but that’s easily solved. I was also thinking of adding in a card called “Lioness Choice”. As you can imagine, I’d get to pick what I want to do. I know I can do that any time I want, but I really want to try to keep doing the Box O’Fun. Any time we stop doing something, we tend to stop for a long time. If I don’t have him pick from the box one night, I’m more likely to forget it the next night. It’s a slippery slope.

We seem to have a lot of slippery slopes. Having him masturbate for me, my forgetting things, health issues, etc. can or have all derailed us at different times. The worst one is inertia. Once we stop something, it’s extremely difficult for us to start again. That’s why I think the Box O’Fun is so important. Even if we’re down to the last card I should bring out the box. He needs to pick it. If we make it a ritual, we’re more likely to continue.

I was sort of concerned how we’d manage things on our camping trip. We’re tired when we get home. We tend to leave things in the camper until we’re more rested. Certain things come in quickly, like laundry and food. Unless we had a Box O’Fun for the camper, I could see it sitting out there and we wouldn’t have it in the house. Or, and this is more likely, I could see us simply forgetting it altogether. And then we wouldn’t play. And then we wouldn’t play once we got home. And then inertia would set in. And you know how the rest goes.

Lion ordered a larger Box O’Fun because I said it was difficult for him to mix up the cards for a real random selection. Once we have that box, we can use the old box for the camper. It should be just fine for a few days of camping. And I might want to modify the cards that are in the camper box. I don’t think we’ve ever traveled with ginger, for example. There may be other things that the camper is just not conducive to doing. As soon as we get the new Box O’Fun, I’ll start working on the Travel Box O’Fun.

What do you think?
