“I noticed you are reading Sherlock Holmes,” he wrote, “so I must inquire if you are a Sherlockian.”
I had mentioned in something I wrote on Fetlife that I was reading Sherlock Holmes. Little did I realize that one of the men I gave a New Year’s kiss to at a kinky party was going to jump all over a small reference I made to me reading Sherlock Holmes.
We had a few exchanges about Sherlock Holmes, and he wished me well.
I ran into him a few weeks later at a kink party. We chatted a bit, and he asked how goes the reading. I quickly realized how I was dealing with a Sherlockian who has been one for a long LONG time. Like for 30 years or more.
He recommended some books for me to read – asked what I had read so far, etc. It was a great discussion. He ended the discussion with “when you get off your volunteer shift, and you’re in the mood – can I rough you up?” Sadly, I had already made plans, so I politely declined.
We discussed play in the future – where he likes to play – and his history in the community. I enjoyed the chat. I enjoyed learning more about him. We hugged as I went off to do my job.
A few days later, I got a message from him listing a few of the books he had suggested I read. He signed it, “I hope we get a chance to scene in the future.”
I replied with my thanks for the list of books, and speculated that I suspected he was going to quiz me while beating me when we were scening. This little comment has led to a whole new negotiation for the upcoming kink convention. A scene which I think we are both giddy about.
I rarely like to role play, but I suspect there will be quizes and punishments involved. He seemed to like the idea. And, strangely, I like the idea. Sounds fun. Sounds like it would definitely be a giggle.
Guess I need to find a school girl skirt to go along with this scene.
And I need to get serious about reading Sherlock Holmes.
I can’t miss all of the questions on his quiz.
