A First Date Picnic With Bennett & Ella

A First Date Picnic With Bennett & Ella


This is the fifth installment of the erotica series Constellations, about finding and keeping kink connections and navigating polyamorous love. 
Content notes: sub/dom dynamics, daddy/girl dynamics, polyamory negotiation

An hour into their picnic date with Ella, the anxiety Bennett had felt leading up to it was starting to wane. First dates were never easy, but Ella was laughing and curious with her shining eyes, and asking so many questions. The fluttering in Bennett’s chest was starting to feel more like excitement and hope, that they might actually be compatible, that they might want the same things, rather than fear they would discover they were wrong for each other.
Ella had urged Bennett onto their back, pulling their arm once gently, and Bennett felt the electric connection of just that brief touch. But now, Ella’s hand was not touching Bennett’s, in a way that was very deliberately not touching, but almost touching, and Bennet was very aware of the centimeters between th…

The Soap: Dawson’s Creek

In case Election 2020 has you down, exhausted, or feeling a bit dirty about 68.7 million Americans who still somehow think Donald Trump is a good idea, never fear: the landmark teen soap Dawson’s Creek has landed on Netflix this week.

Dawson’s Creek invited gasps and grumbling when it hit the airwaves back in 1998 for its depiction of teen sexuality. The good looks and talent of Katie Holmes, James Van Der Beek, Joshua Jackson and Michelle Williams attracted the show a loyal audience. The series’ real gravitas, however, came in its depiction of LGBTQ characters, including teenagers coming out and finding love. Actor Kerr Smith played the character of Jack McPhee beginning in Season 2; the third season would see Jack have his first kiss with another boy (the Season 3 finale, in case ya wanna fast forward), with Smith becoming the first actor in the history of US primetime network television to have a passionate kiss with another man. Go figure that writer Greg Berlanti–who would go on to direct The Broken Hearts Club and Love, Simon, as well as executive produce Riverdale, The Flash, Arrow and a host of other series–created the character of Jack when he landed a writing job on the show’s second season.

Hormonal, lurid and groundbreaking, Dawson’s Creek offers up just the nostalgic, cotton candy relief we need right now in the midst of election madness. Watch it…and care about some fictional problems for a while.

Streams on Netflix & Hulu.

A Date For Mad Mary – Lesbian.com

A Date For Mad Mary – Lesbian.com

A DATE FOR MAD MARY tells the story of ‘Mad’ Mary McArdle returning to her small Irish home town after a short spell in prison – for something she’d rather forget. But everything and everyone seems different. Her best friend, Charlene, is about to get married and Mary is maid of honor. When Charlene refuses Mary a ‘plus one’ on the grounds that she probably couldn’t find a date, Mary becomes determined to prove her wrong. Her attempts at dating are a disaster and she winds up feeling more alone… until she meets Jess – the lesbian wedding photographer – and everything changes.

It is a tough and tender story about friendship, first love, and letting go of the glory days, starring Seána Kerslake (Can’t Cope/Won’t Cope, The Lobster), Tara Lee (Raw, The Fall) and Charleigh Bailey.

Newly-single Karamo Brown has a request for those wishing to date him / Queerty

Do you want to be in with a chance of dating Queer Eye’s Karamo Brown? Well don’t send him photos of your dick or ass as a way to open up a conversation!

Brown, 39, chatted with Us Weekly yesterday about dating again after splitting from his fiancé, producer Ian Jordan, 48. The men had been together for ten years but Brown recently revealed they split around four months ago. He said that spending a concentrated amount of time together during the early days of the pandemic had led him to re-consider their relationship.

Brown is now open to dating but told the magazine that he’s been surprised by some of the messages he’s been receiving.

“Not to be crude or anything, [but] sending inappropriate pics is not a way to ever engage with someone. That’s not universal for ‘hello,’” he said. “I don’t know why guys think that’s an appropriate thing to do. So, it’s like, please keep it respectful. You know what I mean?”

He’s also not a fan of receiving Cardi B lyrics.

“The other day, I got someone who sent me Cardi B lyrics. … They literally sent me Cardi B lyrics for her new song and was like, ‘Hey, can we date?’ And I was like, ‘Why do you think this would be me? Like, me? You think I’m going to be like, ‘Oh, great. Cardi B lyrics. Yes, let’s date.’”

Instead of the hassle of sorting men out via apps, Brown said he’d love to the first gay Batchelor on the TV franchise.

“We can go for it. Let’s try it. I would … Why not?” he said. “Let me tell you something: what I’ve learned right now — and I tweeted this the other day — is that dating is a mess.”

That tweet revealed the Cardi B lyrics he’d been sent was for her latest single, ‘WAP’, which stands for ‘Wet Ass Pussy’.

Faced with this barrage of sexual messaging, Brown said being on the Batchelor would suit him perfectly.

“So, if I could just get a whole bunch of great guys in one room and just to, like, go through, sign me up.”

Brown, who has two sons aged 23 and 20, confirmed on The Ellen DeGeneres Show in September about his split from Jordan.

“We were distracted by so much — with the kids, and our careers — that during that time, I had to really say, ‘How is our communication? How are other parts of our lives? Are we growing in the same place?’

“We went to virtual counseling, we did a lot of things,” he explained. “But eventually, I was like, this is a moment where I need to decide, is my happiness important? And once I made that decision, I said, you know, we are going to have to break up.”

I remember that a classmate of mine told me that her female friend likes me, and I just gave an okay, and to this day I am wondering if she like me as a person or like to date me 😂 : actuallesbians
