SmallNothings is Back

The first version of was a forum created by two nerds in 2003. Soon after a blog was started, I had a collection of stories, ideas and resource ideas that I couldn’t share on my other website (the website that paid my bills and relied on family-friendly advertising).

In 2015, I closed the blog due to an overwhelming spam problem, and server issues.

Now, we’re back. Live, updated and ready to start producing interesting and useful content. I’ve given some of the old posts an update, and tried to cull out the dead links. New articles and resources are in the works.

Stay tuned.


Gender, Homosex, BDSM, Christianity & Updates

Woah — it’s been almost a year since my last post. For my readers; both of you, I apologize for the lack of updates. I’ve been busy with family, fun and love … managing work during the in-betweens. But, my kids are now all in school full-time (10 years in the making!) and I’m hoping to write more this year.

I’ve spent the morning reading a blog I stumbled on by Hugo Schwyzer, a “community college history and gender studies professor, animal rights activist and Episcopal youth minister”. Topics include gender, BDSM & Christians, homosexuality, Older Men and Younger Women, and many of the comments are as interesting and insightful as his original posts.

I think I found the PunkAssBlog through a comment from the above mentioned blog. Tons of quality reading material here. “Homosex” is a good post, I also dug “Transgender” in which the poster mentions:

I was encouraged to consider any and all professions growing up, and marriage and parenthood were practically never mentioned to me, also thereby eradicating any discussion of those future gendered roles as well. In short, I couldn’t imagine wishing to be either a boy or a girl in particular in childhood, as both genders were pretty meaningless to me in terms of defining who and what I was or ever wanted to be. I was neither pleased nor distressed to be a girl , and if I’d suddenly transformed into a boy, I really don’t think I would have cared too much. So did I lack a strong gender identity because of my upbringing, or because I personally simply lack a strong gender identity period..?”

In my youth, I believed gender was B.S. and everyone was just “pretending” to be boy-ish and girl-ish. As a teenager I believed gender was mostly a social construct, and folks were conditioned into their gender roles. After I had my own kids (2 girls and a boy) I recognized there was A LOT more to nature in the nurture vs. nature debate. In other words, I’ve only just recognized that gender is not a choice for everybody… but it is for some people.

So, what I’ve learned is that shit is complicated.

Stay tuned…

Labiaplasty – The Perfect Vagina

hell? I'm on my way

Ever wish you had more youthful-looking labia?

Me, neither… (and I have 3 kids) but there are tons of women who are getting their tender bits snipped to look more appealing.

Labiaplasty is a cosmetic surgery which involves cutting off the inner labia so that they don’t hang below the outer labia.

I’ve heard of this before… but just read a great article on the F-Word called “The Perfect Vagina”, in which the author writes about the procedure and a recent documentary made about the subject.

To the right is a diagram (based on the image of Mary of Guadeloupe) showing the inner labia… bringing this blogs blasphemy score to +5.

While doing research for this post I also found some interesting info about “labia stretching” — which has the opposite desired effect of labiaplasty. Labia stretching is a elongation of the inner labia through the use of manual manipulation or weights.

Labia stretching is actually common practice in Rwanda, the elongated labia are viewed by Rwandan women as enhancing female ejaculation and orgasm. Elsewhere on the planet there are folks who just think large labia are super sexy (I like these people).

In fact, there is a ton of information online about how to stretch yer inner lips.

FYI: My friend thinks pulling on the inner labia feels “neat”, while I can only give it a rating of feeling “different”.


What the Fig?

figging-gingerI thought that I was a bit of an expert when it comes to bizarre sexual practices…but this one is brand new to me. Today, I am going to talk to you about Figging :

The act of inserting a piece of peeled ginger into the anus, causing an intense burning sensation.

From Wikipedia:

Historically, this practice, also known as feaguing was used to ginger up older horses in order to deceive the purchaser as to the age and condition of the horse.

The horse reacts to the sensation caused by the ginger by holding its tail and head high and moving around nervously, which is more characteristic of a younger horse.

Turns out there are groups of figging fanatics who enjoy this torture. Some folks like to carve the ginger into a shape of a butt-plug. Since I have no experience with figging, I leave you with resources which you can explore if you are interested:

Canada: The New Sodom

I wrote a post about Proposition 8 – concerning same-sex marriage, and received some passionate comments.

In fact, that post on prop 8 received more comments than any other post written here thus far. Many of the commenters are quoting the Bible. I’d like to invite you b-thumpers to also comment on some of my other posts such as: this one about a guy that does strange things with chicken eggs (he is NOT Canadian btw).

god-hates-canada2Anyhow… back to Canada burning:

I started reading what other people have to say about Proposition 8, and same-sex marriage laws. I saw a lot of comments from the religious side referencing “Sodom and Gomorrah” — with doomsday warnings.

Some folks interpret Genesis 19:5 as proof that homosexual behavior led to the destruction of the ancient cities of Sodom and Gomorrah. But, the traditional Jewish interpretation is that Sodom and Gomorrah were destroyed because of their lack of hospitality (good will towards guests).

Either way, this got me thinking: “Hey, I live in Canada… not only is homosexuality legal here, so is gay marriage.”

Do these folks who fear a repeat of Sodom and Gomorrah really think Canada is going to receive the wrath of god?

Proposition 8 – wtf?

Earlier this year, the California Supreme Court legalized same-sex marriage and said it was unconstitutional to deny anyone the right to marry.

This pissed many people off, and hence was drafted: Proposition 8. If passed, the proposition would change the California Constitution to eliminate the right of same-sex couples to marry in California, and new section would be added stating “only marriage between a man and a woman is valid or recognized in California.”

Sergey Brin, co-founder of Google, issued the following statement concerning California’s anti-gay marriage Proposition 8:

As an Internet company, Google is an active participant in policy debates surrounding information access, technology and energy. Because our company has a great diversity of people and opinions — Democrats and Republicans, conservatives and liberals, all religions and no religion, straight and gay — we do not generally take a position on issues outside of our field, especially not social issues. So when Proposition 8 appeared on the California ballot, it was an unlikely question for Google to take an official company position on.

However, while there are many objections to this proposition — further government encroachment on personal lives, ambiguously written text — it is the chilling and discriminatory effect of the proposition on many of our employees that brings Google to publicly oppose Proposition 8. While we respect the strongly-held beliefs that people have on both sides of this argument, we see this fundamentally as an issue of equality. We hope that California voters will vote no on Proposition 8 — we should not eliminate anyone’s fundamental rights, whatever their sexuality, to marry the person they love.

Go Google. Tell ’em.

If you are in California (or just curious), you should check out more info about Proposition 8 on wikipedia.


I Knew a Guy That…

I was 14, he was 16. We grew up together, and since puberty he had been trying to get me in bed. I was at his house one day after school when he got a “brilliant idea” look on his face and bolted into the kitchen. I followed behind, and saw him grab a carton of eggs out of the fridge.

arse eggHe held up an egg and asked, “Wanna put this up your ass?”.

I laughed and said no.

He tried to convince me a few more times before telling me that he would just have to do it himself then.

My buddy pulled down his shorts, squatted, and sucked an egg right up into his asshole.

He then did an awkward crab-walk over to the bathroom and hovered over the toilet.

“Look! I’m a chicken!” he said and he grunted down a bit and released the egg into the toilet with a plop.

He explained that “he just wanted to do it”, and we never really talked about the “I’m a chicken!” incident again. But, this is one of my favorite stories and thought my readers may enjoy it (the story, not an egg in the ass).


Just a Quickie

Sex In the news recently:

Swinger Club Shut Down from Neighbor Complaints – “Once in a while it sounds like a raccoon dying,”

Verizon Tech Accused Of Making $220K In Sex Calls – Former employee said to have tapped into landlines Of 950 Customers.

I stumbled upon an interesting research paper titled “Pornography, Rape and Sex Crimes in Japan” — If you aren’t familiar with the scope of strange porn that comes out of Japan, check out this wikipedia link.

Then ponder that in Japan, Playboy Magazine was banned (for showing pubic hair) until 1975 and pornography only became commonplace in the 90s. Now rape fantasy figurines are sold publicly next to similar machines selling Pokemon figurines. The rapid changes make for an interesting study on how pornography and rape are related.
