BDSM is a widely used term to describe a particular range of intimate, interpersonal interactions that are often regarded by non-participants as a fetish or perversion of normal behaviour.

BDSM is a meld of 3 separate acronyms -

bd - bondage + discpline
ds - domination + submission
sm - sado - masochism

To the non participant, the initials BDSM commonly elicit ideas of danger, pain and suffering. This is a misconception, BDSM is not the same as assault or abuse of an intimate partner... rather,  interactions that include elements of BDSM practice are neccessarily based on mutual trust and voluntary acceptance of roles played. Further this role playing is both conscious and explicit and leads to the intimate gratification of both participants.

By that definition, my log is mislabelled. I do not engage in an equal or mutually gratifying, intimate, relationship with my plants. I merely subject them to repeated stresses that they are unable to resist. I expect that people, whose lifestyles could truly be described as containing elements of BDSM, might suggest I have highjacked the term and degraded the meaning, especially as I have also referred to it as the 'torture log'.

Triffid - a reference to a sci-fi novel in which a form of plant life threatens humanity's terrestrial dominance and a nickname I apply to a particularly large growing and long flowering, sativa dom strain that I have grown for a long time now.

If you haven't read the book or seen any of the reproductions info can be found here-

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Triffid

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Day_of_the_Triffids

So was that spelling and grammar or sensi advanced grower?

Perversion is a very negatively loaded word, but the word fetish does and should apply here. As I understand it a fetish is the attachment of sexual pleasure or significance to something inherently non-sexual.

Perversion does imply deviation from the alleged norm, but fetish to me is a word that you could apply to BDSM without any notion of shame, negativity, non-normalcy, deviancy etc. Everyone (unless literally the only thing that turns you on is the act of sex itself) has fetishes, it just depends what they are!

Sorry, don't mean to sound argumentative or anything I agree with all you said really, I just love semantics...

And of course, as is so often noted and even more often misunderstood, the power in the relationship lies wih the submissive party, not the dominant one, since it is the submissive who defines the limits of acceptable behaviour. And yes in this sense (and the wider consensual one) you hve hijacked the term, but I don't see the BDSM community giving much of a rat's ass, the people I've met that engage in such things tend to be pretty damn relaxed and easy going folks...

Sadly, this kind of consenual activity is still effectively illegal in the UK (I think there's a vey poorly and loosely worded exemption as long as the activity doesn't cause anything that could be called lasting harm, but wtf does "lasting" mean, does a 3 day bruise count?). And don't even get me started on our bullsh*t new "extreme pornography" legislation.

Shucks, and I thought I was getting so darned close to BDopeSmokingM.

Korbandallas, you are a man after my heart. The rest have too much time on their hands or are not smoking enough.

Sarra L " elements of BDSM practice are neccessarily based on mutual trust and voluntary acceptance of roles played" is this personal experience or did you copy it out of Wikipedia?

And regarding perversion, which Websters defines as ",deviating from the right and true," is that you are doing with those plants?

I filed like hell today for 5 hours, then had a good smoke as I jumped back on the 101. Life's kinda crazy, the things it asks me to do. I go with it and say, "I first visited William Burroughs in the Hotel Boulderado one Halloween, dressed in a gorilla costume. I knocked on his door and he opened it. He looked right at me, kinda swung on the door (I think he was completely potted), and said, "Come right on in." Where's Ganja?

Vicarious experience rather than in depth personal knowledge, but no I did not just copy it from the wiki.

Only if you consider there is a 'right and true' way to grow. It certainly isn't an orthodox method.


Where's Ganja?


Probably asleep... it's currently 4:20 pm here, so it's 6:20 am on Saturday morning in Amsterdam.

In a sense, DA JOB is done. That is, me mum passed on at 4am March 18. And in the other sense, DA JOB is never done. Eh?
 
I thank the noble weed for getting me through this period. It added greatly to the compassion and patience with which I attended my mother.
 
Am I pleased to know that no one else smokes at work? I didn't realize there were so many goody two shoes or closed lipped, closet smokers? Here in California, there is a bunch of legal action about being stoned on the job and whether or not you can be fired for it if you are a medical marijuana user (like me).
 
What else do I want to say? DA JOB is never done. Overgrow the Government. And be good.

Check out:
 
 
by the director of a short film, "I am Bob", with Bob Geldoff. Amazingly funny.
 
I saw it on public tv late last night. He does sing "I Don't Like Mondays".
 
 Here's the real movie on MySpace.
 
 
ENJOY

Life goes strangely on.
 
I plan to go around the world next year SL. Want me to drop in  before or after Auckland? I'll be on my way to Tonga from the Karakoram Highway or Lumbini. You go to Nimbin? When is it!!!!!
 
Da Job is being very nice about my aberrant schedules which are again filling with Zen practice instead of mother practice. If everything is a teaching (dharma), aren't you?
 
I'll stay in touch; although it, too, may not be apparent.
 
All the best to my stoney friends. I bless you with each toke.

If you're coming from Lumbini and going to Tonga, Australia should come in before Auckland. You'll get more connects from Nepal to Australia than NZ, but Auckland is the most direct way out to the smaller islands.

I've always been fond of Niue... you can't go past a Polynesian island named "Behold the coconut!"

Stay safe.

%3co%20high   Greetings all. How's da job?
 
It's cool here, finishing up the hardest six months work I ever did--burying moma %3clunt and handling brother Broken%20Heart. Got fired from my damn job..$9/hr secretary and I'm a CPA...it has been an incredible ride which started in August 2008 when I returned from New Mexico resolving to start smoking da evil weed again. %3ceed%20leaf
 
Anyway, I'm older, wealthier, and wiser and isn't that the point? Also got some free time. Trips around the world are on hold. In August, I return to da job of a buddhist monk %3cacko. Maybe my man %3cmoking can mail me a package once in a while? In the monkish %3cacko life, it really don't matter that much.
 
What else. Every old fool I know is retiring or being retired; others, like me, with sexual harassment charges %3co%20high . As poor brother said in a better age, "feck 'em if they can't take a joke." My man in NM just sold his business. Yeah.
 
SL, you are a real doll. Vicarious experience, my derrierre %3cvil%20Smil%3c. Don't tell me the old lady never tied you up once. Who or what are you torturing lately? Your teens?
 
Speaking of teens, my man %3cmoking  has been homeless for 10 years and he and his grrrl, Pam, are on the edge of getting a room in a house. Pam is the cutest, young felon you'll ever meet. You find good and bad people everywhere, even felons.
 
Speaking of which, I was snooping around the entrance to Golden Gate Park round 10pm when this couple black cats "psssed" me. I walked over, the smaller cat chat, chat 'bout want weed/got weed. Me ya ya what ho? Bigger taller one with plates for teeth gives me a little smile and nod. We chat, chat. The big one gives me another smile and nod (move off now); and I realize, to my surprise, that I have just been talking to a couple of muggers lurking to take some fool into the bush.
 
Yeah, da up started down when I got fired from da stupid secretary job (da same night I met da nice muggers). I can't wait to get out of here. Ciao stoners.  %3chumbs%20Up

People who know would probably choke with laughter reading that... I've been called many things over the years, but this is a first.

You don't need to believe me if you don't want to, but the truth is rather boring.

  Don't tell me the old lady never tied you up once.

Not once, never ever.

Who or what are you torturing lately?

Hmmm, just got some foliage chilling in the fridge... everything else is growing pretty normally... apart from being outside of the traditional season for this sort of thing.

Your teens?

lol it's a few years since I had teens under foot... maybe I am older than you realise.
 
Make sure you don't take any wooden nickels Gary, happy travels.

I could never believe that. It counters my experience. Reality has big gaping holes in it and the most amazing things come flying out of those holes.
 
Come on working men and women, entertain me.......

Ah yes, retirement. It is a good thing. I enjoy life--baked all day, puttering in the garden, walking, spending and giving away my inheritance. From simple desires come great satisfaction.

I have another good thought, this in dealing with my brother (da current job). It is the lies we tell ourselves that come back in the end to haunt us the most.

SL, you say you are quite aged. The flirtatious picture you displayed for me so briefly was an old picture, from your prime? I returned the picture of my friend, Miss Galaxy. She is, by the way, quite fine, still looking for a husband. Yours truly is too old and alternatively inclined (i.e. straight).

Enjoy your retirment. I still wanna here some good stories about work and smoking pot!!!

Ya know, I've been fired from 4 jobs and heavy pot smoking was involved every time. Huh? The third one was the only bad ones, so I don't think there's any problem with working and smoking pot. Comments???
