I’ve been remiss and not updating my sidebar so let me try to correct that this evening.

A few months ago I received a very nice email from a reader inquiring how well I spoke French prior to moving to Paris and at the bottom of the note was a link to a website she contributes to, SE Adventure Women.

So I followed the link and found a website the reviewed outdoor gear from a woman’s perspective, or so it seems. As I scrolled through a few posts I found a picture of these. "Vertical Gear" it said. Hmmm, I thought, what would someone do with this dungeon equipment out in the woods? I returned to an earlier post featuring these boy shorts. They seemed innocent enough, but in college I sometimes frequented a fantasy board where a guy had a Teva fetish (A Teva fetish, can you imagine? How disgusting.), so I looked at the post with a more careful eye. Then it jumped out at me
wicking moisture, could that be code for licking sweat?

Then there was this, the very definition of dual use. An innocent walking stick perhaps, but as any masochist knows, a cane in the hands of a cruel mistress is
pleasurable painful. And now they’re talking about putting men in skirts!

For the time being I’m giving them the benefit of the doubt and will place them on my sidebar under Style and Sustenance. But, I’m going to keep an eye on them as I’m not sure what kind of adventures these women of the southeast are having out in the woods, I suspect they’re a little kinky.

Also I need to add Diva and her blog Escort Life. Diva is a retired companion for whom the blog provides an opportunity to share what she learned about the life.

Again, an apology to EB and Diva in taking so long to add these links.

VJ: Not as well as I thought I did before arriving. As a student, I'd taken Spanish throughout high school and college, when the possibility of moving to France opened I switched to French at college and supplemented that with an outside language class and any opportunity I could get to speak, hear, and read French.

Upon arrival I could carry on a formal, if stilted conversation, but found myself befuddled by the rapidity of common speech, slang and the various tics of how people speak in real life.
