“Maybe butch-femme is about tension, the good kind, the kind sexual tension is made of, where there’s space for surprise, where you are not like me, and I am not like you. Maybe it’s about push, pull, and balance, within me and between us. I think each person and every relationship needs this, be they boy-girl of any stripe, or boy-boy, girl-girl, or even butch-butch and femme-femme.”
Thea Hillman, “Butch-Femme as Spiritual Practice” in Persistence: All Ways Butch and Femme edited by Ivan E. Coyote and Zena Sharman (reviewed at The Lesbrary).
Fuck, this is a gorgeous description.
I struggle with gender descriptors/definers/roles, but I really love the way this is put. It’s a beautiful thought.
Bless u panzercat for writing this, there are not enough sinkjobs in the world, and I by no means object to 2600 words of it. I also wholeheartedly approve of the accidental dom/sub as well. Thank you for writing this~~~~
(You are also a mind reader, because I was indeed secretly hoping you would write this, ahahaha.)
(Do you think we can make sinkjobs a fandom thing and get a tag on ao3 for it???)
Everyone else, go forth and read the sinkjob fic for it is a beautiful thing.
Aahhh I am glad you enjoyed, and yes we definitely need A) more sinkjobs and B) our own tag (though, happily, kitchen sex and coming in pants ARE existing tags).
For everyone else, it FINALLY is on AO3 so if you’re trying to read the original post you can now read it without that fun effect that makes everything look super trippy after you’ve read black text on a red background, and yes I was told not to do that like fifteen years ago on tripod, I am sorry!
Read on AO3 (now with slight edits and a title wow!!)
"If you love cooking with garlic, you know it does a lot of good in recipes by helping build flavor — but its strong odor can linger for hours, especially on our hands. We’ve all been in the situation where after preparing a wonderful meal, we’re left with the stench of garlic on our fingers — yuck! There are a few tricks people often recommend to eliminate the smell: lemon juice or vinegar, rubbing your hands with salt, or even using toothpaste! But those don’t work — all they do is mask the garlic smell. So what does really work? Stainless steel."
cooking with garlic? jerk off your sink
Someone pls fic this, complete with Charles and accidental porn
Dear sweetlyenchains you deserve only the best but u are getting 2600 words of sinkjobs
"Well, of course. But this is so effective, and I do need to get this smell off somehow," he says, innocent as a man jacking off a household fixture can possibly manage to be.
That’s what the damn soap is for, Erik wants to say, but as Charles smiles and reaches up to turn the spigot off—still stroking his other hand wetly back and forth over the neck of the faucet—his mouth goes dry.
