Just to be clear, today is just another day.

I’m preparing some pico de gallo for a small gathering coming to the house tonight. It’s best if it sits for a few hours – let’s the onion, cilantro and Serrano peppers settle in for the full flavour of the dish. Later I’ll make the guacamole. That has to be fresh.

Yes, I’m still in the Baja. Lovely. It’s windy right now – clouds blowing from a cloudless sky. Can this blue get any bluer? Later I’ll put on my bathing suit, grab a book and steal a moment of quiet. After the chores are done. Even in the Baja, chores have to be done.

I was thinking I should really spend my quiet time going over this past year. 2013. What was it like for me, in itself and in the bigger scheme of things? What did I accomplish, where did I go, what were my experiences, good and not so good, what did I see, how did I feel when I saw it, not who but how did I love? Then it occurred to me that I have been assessing my 2013 all year long.

Just to be clear, tomorrow is just another day.





Feeling Festive

Posted on: December 24th, 2013 by Madison Lake No Comments

I know yesterday’s music post was not very festive in this season of holiday lights, music and all things commercial. But I was feeling kinda groovy. Still am.

I’m down here in Baja, Mexico, with family, sunshine, cactus, and of course our own style of holiday cheer.

It’s different. 

When I see posts with photos of snow and twinkling lights and green trees decorated with tinsel, it reminds me that it is Christmas. It reminds me that while most of our friends are either shovelling snow or are cold or wet or simply dealing with the onslaught of Christmas materialism, we sit at the beach drinking our lime-licked cervezas and watch another wave crash onto the white sandy beach. (sorry, truth) When our friends are sitting by the fire at night and tucking themselves into piles of downy quilts, we sit under an open sky and watch for shooting stars and Orion, The Big Dipper and the myriad of other magic in the night sky, the coyotes howling and the crickets chirping so loudly we can barely hear the silence.

I do miss the traditional Christmas that I grew up with but times change. Besides, it doesn’t matter where I am or what I’m doing or not doing. It’s about family. My family – your family – family in all the shapes, sizes, styles, behaviours, ages, stages, quirkiness and wonderment. It’s about LOVE. As Pope Francis recently stated:

“Whether we call God, Jesus, Adonai, Allah or Krishna, we all worship the same God of love. This truth is self-evident to all who have love and humility in their hearts!”

Take it down a notch folks. Feeling Groovy.

Talk to Tippy

Posted on: December 18th, 2013 by Madison Lake No Comments

Talk to Tippy for outrageously honest advice. Call it the second opinion we all wish we had. Unabashed and candid and insightful – trust Tippy for guidance with dating, relationship or sexual conundrums. Yes, you can Talk to Tippy!  

Cats and Kittens,

Christmas is upon us, and hopefully you’ll be upon your partner in this time of giving.  Whether you’re with somebody new or you’ve unwrapped that box a hundred times before the holidays, our Christmas “sex positions” are sure to become instant holiday favorites. We’ve made a list, and you’re welcome to check it twice. Whether you two are naughty, nice or a couple of depraved pervs, there’s a goodie in this sack for everyone.

10.  Jingle Balls

This move centers around some classic teabaging, either before, during or after intercourse. So whenever you decide to do it,  walk to the kitchen and frost your schwetty balls with leftover green and red frosting from the Christmas cookies to appeal to her sweet tooth and ensure extra-intense tongue action. Bonus points if you swirl some red frosting around your penis for a candy cane bonus.

9.  Santa’s little Helper

Men, quit worrying about being “big” enough and start to think small; try imitating elves and have sex on your knees. A little pocket rocket vibrator can provide the elfin magic. Your usual smooth bass bedroom voice will ruin the whole thing, so keep helium close by to take hits and talk dirty in a higher octave. It’s going to be a busy night on your part, but at least she can pretend she was with another guy while you maintain a size advantage in reality. If this position unleashes a previously unknown elf fetish, you’re jolly well screwed.

8.  The Stocking Stuffer

Not only is Christmas a great time for sex, it is also a time when family can be a little too close at all the wrong times. So this year, make the most of it by engaging in some exciting secret sex with your partner at a very unsuspecting time: Christmas dinner. The goal is for you and your partner to separately excuse yourselves in the middle of dinner, without arousing suspicion, then make your way up to an available bedroom or?  for a quickie.

7.  Down the Chimney with Care

This Christmas sex position combines stockings and sex in close quarters. She’ll be in crotchless or strategically ripped stockings, and you’ll both zip into a sleeping bag together. From there, engage in any and all positions allowable by your physiques and your encased bedding. Closeness and friction will be the two factors you experience. After a while, you may get a whiff of hot nylon and/or singed hair. The decision to proceed will be yours; just remember the phrase “you would even say it glows” can apply to more than Rudolph’s nose. Mutual ointment application is a popular form of after-play for this one.

6.  Snow Angel

So far, our Christmas sex positions have probably found you indoors, out of the cold.  Even with the all the rockin’ she’s been doing around your Christmas tree, cabin fever might be setting in. Good news: You can get fresh air and still get some when you go outside to make snow angels. Way better than a snowman with a frosty schlong grafted on, these snow angels decorate the lawn beautifully and make for great stories to share. You’ll have distinct his-and-her patterns, too. When you’re on top in the missionary position, you’ll be in charge of swinging out your legs, making for a taller angel. When she’s on top, her knee impressions will make for a more bootylicious angel.  See photos.  Okay, there aren’t any photos.

5.  Down the chimney with Care

With all the Christmas songs and stories involving chimneys, no Christmas sex position portfolio would be complete without one involving your partner’s ash pipe.  Firstly, you’ll need to sport a St. Nick’s outfit ,and then, with her lying on her back facing you, you give her a gentle anal pile driver. Besides all the other sensations going on, the blood will be rushing to her head — it’s not unheard of for the drivee to pass out.

4.  Milk and Cookies

Santa Claus must get royally pissed off by the end of his run. Billions of houses, and he only gets milk and cookies for his trouble — some treat. All that lactose and gluten  – yuk!  Poor fellow!  For you and your partner, a dose of these “Milk & Cookies” can be a sweet, little snack. It’s so simple, yet delicious: Just lap away at her breasts for milk while you engage her sugar cookie with your hands.

3.  Secret Santa

This one involves a Santa mask and suit, and a blindfold. Set up the encounter as your usual mystery seduction by tying up and blindfolding your girl/guy. Then, dress up in your Santa get up and get down to business. Once everything is done, take off her blindfold and let her see who her secret Santa really is.

2.  Trim the Tree

Part of the Christmas tradition is a small degree of deforestation, as pines and firs are cut and cleared. What better time to cut and clear the fuzzy forest off you and your partner? If you trust each other — really, really trust each other — try doing the job for each other. If there was ever a time to remind her how sensitive that skin is, this is it — your life is in her hands. When you’re both free of debris, you’ll find oral fixations renewed and enhanced — without the obligatory throat clearing and teeth-picking afterward.

1.  Chest and Nuts Roasting on an Open Fire

Fireplaces are always portrayed as romantic but don’t just settle for a cuddle and staring at the flames — there’s your own yule log to attend to.  While she’s on the floor on her back close to the fire, have her press her breasts together while you thrust your penis between them. For bonus points, have icy champagne close by, a thick cosy rug to keep you comfy and try to douse the fire when you climax.  

On Dasher, On Prancer, Donner and Blitzen.  Oh that frisky Blitzen.  And to all a good night!

Holiday Cheer!

Posted on: December 17th, 2013 by Madison Lake No Comments

I must admit to being slightly off kilter last night when I closed my eyes against a huge full moon, too bright to see the usual billions of stars in the Baja sky. You got it. One Margarita, two Margaritas. No, I did not have three. The local bar I was visiting, one is enough so two put me howling with the coyotes in the desert and watching for shooting stars that, like I say, were blinded by the moon’s light – or I was.

So, the point of the story, now told with a little more clarity drinking my morning coffee (you should have read what I started to write last night), is that the Madison Lake team is taking to an early holiday this year, which means our regular weekly blogs will end today and resume the week of Monday, January 6th. As you see, I’m already in holiday mode.

The new year of 2014 will bring some losses. Two people who have kept the engines running on this machine from almost from day one, will be leaving. It’s a tough break for us but good folks must move on and I can only give my heartfelt thanks for the support, creativity and boundless energy they brought to the vision and to the team, and wish them well. They will be missed. Truly.

So onward, with some new weekly themes, chapter one of the third and last book in the Cloud of Hawthorne series, (my fifth book), and a fresh, revamped blog site when you return in the new year.Till then…
