The Season of Strangers Discussing My Pubic Hair

— and you because a man online hacks my
emails, discussing what my submission
entails — (pubic hair/orgasm denied,
escalating anal sex discussions
anticipating activities dom
is contemplating, post rape by
one dated who didn’t communicate some
desires acquirable by force) – shares wry
commentary, excerpts with bdsm
group chat, of which we both are members. When,
shy, I come to you, tame overview, system
administrator, who offers me random
generated password, date, if I dare,
during which you discuss my pubic hair.
