No More Hiding: Permission to Love Your Sexual Self

Get ready for a discovery of self but also a discovery of so many things you may have always had questions about … and perhaps a few you wouldn’t have thought of otherwise.

After all, knowledge is power.

Dr. Rhoda Lipscomb is a therapist with a whole lot of impressive credentials. She is (get ready for all of this): an alternative sexuality specialist, a certified sex therapist and a clinical sexologist with a PhD in clinical sexology. 

Aside from counseling people, she has also attended multiple CAPCons and TeddyCons over the past few years – having led several classes and presentations.

Though not an ABDLer herself, she has embraced the existence of age play and has shed more positive light on the fetish/kink/interest (choose your label) than has ever been shed before.

ABDL has been the sometimes brunt joke on TV talk shows, sitcoms and even some documentaries that were supposed to be informative but often wound up being presented as sensational only.

In this regard, the importance of Dr. Rhoda’s research is paramount.

She wrote her dissertation on age play and has contributed more information to the therapy universe about age play than was understood.

In other words, she cares.  She cares about us and about our decision to make age play who we are.

No More Hiding: Permission to Love Your Sexual Self is a book she wrote that references ABDL a few times but tackles the bigger discussion of choices.

In a day and age when people are not only opening up to what they feel inside but exploring the possibilities of something more, this book is a gem … of explanation, of resources, of love and of understanding.

She devotes a lot of chapters to recognizing, if not also overcoming the roadblocks in our lives that have prevented us from opening up.  One chapter in particular, she deeply addresses what she terms as The Big Four emotions:
Fear, Shame, Embarrassment and Guilt

And who hasn’t felt at least one, if not all of those emotions at some point in life?

Available in ebook and paperback formats, I cannot encourage you enough to read this book.  Dr. Rhoda gives you countless examples of how people were able to find greater happiness and fuller lives because they opened themselves up.

She also writes of how to introduce these feelings and questions to a significant other in a productive manner that enables you to take your partner’s opinions and emotions into account.

Load with researched information and good sense, No More Hiding: Permission to Love Your Sexual Self is a must-read for anyone who has ever grown tired of unanswered question marks.

20 Years

I just realized two days ago that I began writing my very first story on January 1st, 1999.  So I’ve been at it for 20 years. 3,679,310 words and 10,502 pages later, I believe I’ve only scratched the surface of what our four-letter common interest can provide us.  And I’m merely one fish in the sea, a member of a school I take pride in being a part of.

That first story was entitled: “The Diapered Female”.  Real creative name, huh? LOL  The story was about a college girl and boy who got together to spend a weekend trying out a fetish that the girl accidentally revealed to him when very drunken at a frat party.

I would post it online and would rewrite it for years as I kept exploring this new thing I had found called ABDL.  Years later, that story would be retitled: “When Fantasy Became Her Reality”.  Nowadays, that story appears in the book: Gabriel & Gina.

But I never believed I would keep writing stories.  Yet, they kept coming to mind and I kept typing them out, next posting a story entitled: “Overnight”.  This would later become book two in The Zeke & Lily Saga series.

Through the paperback-only era and right on into the ebook era, I have poured my heart into what I write.  Through relationships and the eventual massive growth of the ABDL community, I kept writing and writing and writing.

Some of the stories were based on real events in my life.  Others were the product of fantasies.  Others were the requests of people.

From romance to pure-n-innocence to dark BDSM themes – stories of sexuality, humiliation, diapers, spanking, diapers, little headspace, diapers, discipline, correction, bondage, forced regression, submission, relationships, love, hatred, marriage, public outings, medical fetish additives, encounters with zombies, futuristic sci-fi, dream elves, celebrities, fairy tales, diapers, bedtime tales, choose-your-own-adventures, demigods, nymphomaniacs, horror, pet play, Daddies-n-BabyGirls, Mommies-n-BabyBoys, Mommies-n-BabyGirls, babysitters, diapers, apartment scenarios, Lily, Mia, Rose, Penny, Lucy, Aria, Chelsea, Trisha, Dakota, Daisy, a girl named Love, Britney, a girl named Boo, Gina, a girl named Peaches, Sharon Lockett, Gabriel and Zeke …  the journey has been amazing.

I recall days when I would sleep for 6 hours and write for the other 18, nights when I would give up sleeping so I could finish a book by dawn and send it off into the publishing process to meet a specific deadline, conventions I would read the stories at, phone calls when I would read something to a dear sweet angel who was sent down to me from God Almighty at the absolute most-needed moment in my lifetime … and I wouldn’t change a single thing about it, looking back on it all now.

Well … perhaps I would have started sooner.

I thank each and every one of you for having been a part of my journey.  And this website will always be available for you to peruse.
