I've seen a bunch of things that go the other way -- that talk about safety, and limitations of mobility, and how to avoid doing harm -- but not as many that talk about, like, why someone with chronic pain might find tattoos interesting.
Actually, fic that does that sort of thing would be interesting, too.
2. Does anyone have any suggestions of reading about the kink practices in specific non-Western spaces? I can't figure out how to google or library-search and get good results.
What this comes out of: if you asked me about whipping and flogging in Western kink practice, I could tell you a bunch of contexts in which it happened historically, and talk about how that relates to various flogging scenes (military discipline, religious flagellation, judicial punishment). And I could google and read all about what-whipping-means-to-me as written by various folks in the American/British/Canadian kink communites. But I don't know anything about the historical and contextual and emotional symbols of kink practice in Japan (except for that thing I read once about the history of military restraint and bondage).
3. I can't find a translation of the text on Hokusai's Dream of the Fisherman's Wife. I've found places that reference a book with a translation, but nothing on the internets.
4. So, okay, css baffles me. I am using a version of the Sunday Morning layout over at kink_bingo, which I quite like, except for one problem: no underlined links. And no underlined links is an accessibility issue, especially since the link text color is quite similar to the main text color. And I know how to make the css underline all links, but that includes, like, the links in usernames and dates, which I find weird-looking in the style; I'll live with it if there's no way to change it, but if there's a way to specifically mark usernames as text-decoration: none and calendar dates as not links at all, that would be awesome.
5. Your favorite (intentionally or unintentionally) kinky moments in mainstream tv and film! Go!
