1. Would you rather be the smartest or hottest man/woman in the room?
I've always been a bit of a blue stocking... which whilst not a bad thing, is pressure. People tend to assume I'm smart which sets me up for a fall. But I've never been the hottest person in the room...so I'd love to try that...
2. Do you get aroused by hearing the sexual moans and noises of others having sex, e.g., neighbors, people next door in hotel room?
As a teenager I was part of an organisation which meant we had trips away from home. I remember listening to my friends having sex- one pair would spur on another and those of us alone would be left trying to jill or jack off in a too tight sleeping bag...in the morning light we would carry on as though nothing had happened. To this day, listening to real people having sex, being around them, is a big turn on.
3. What are some small things that make your day better?
Touch. Broadly speaking, I flash between being a sensory seeker and touch adverse. Part of my Autism diagnosis. If I think of good moments this week though, they are all about touch- having my hair washed at the hairdressers, a surprise hug from a friend (I'm not a casual hugger!), a hand on the back of my neck whilst I was on a difficult phone call.
4. It’s the night before Christmas and you hear footsteps on the roof — what do you do?
I still believe in Father Christmas. If my bedroom is not tidy on Christmas Eve I am in a panic. I think I would lie very still and pretend to be asleep and hope he would come, because I hate having to be someone with grown-up expectations and responsibilities all the time.
5. What does your ideal Saturday morning look like?
I don't know, because I would have slept through it... I have a better idea of how it would sound. Silent. Might be accompanied by the gentle wafting scent of someone baking me fresh pain au chocolate. A daft romance and time for a fantasy led wank.
6. What does your ideal Saturday night look like?
While Saturday morning is all about me... Saturday night would be about others. I'd love to be comfortable being more "me" in public... My partner and me alone would be fine. With others... that would be good too. He loves rope and I love pleasing him, so being tied in a quiet calm room, just me and him would be a lovely relaxing evening.
Bonus: What is the craziest, most outrageous thing you want to achieve?
I want to be seen as a professional in my "normal life" occupation, which is specialist and niche, but because I am also a client in that field I am usually looked down upon. So this might not seem to be that outrageous, but it would feel really empowering to be seen as an equal when I sit in the meetings I have to attend. That world and this one are diametrically opposing. More outrageously, I want to be able to wear this part of me on the outside more often.
