Read 1 1/2 Anita Blakes Friday morning. Killing Dance and uh, ...

Reaction to Secretary and recent textporn jolted me into realizing that in those
situations (those which are powerful, compelling, and erotic but involve no sex)
I don't care about the gender of the, uh, top. This probably slides me another whisker way from homophobia towards bi. Hmm.

and the Bad News:

The US gov't (DoD) is officially cutting funds to opensource and free security projects because they believe they may enable terrorism. (OpenBSD is the first to get cut.)

Incidences of dissapearing of citizens and aliens continue to be reported, particularly in relation to the mandatory check-ins at INS of all from certain countries.

Patriot II will soon be coming to the floor of the US Congress.

Several states are considering bills which criminalize the use of common computer security technologies (VPNs, NAT, etc) At least two states have passed such laws.

Verizon is on it's last appeal as it fights the RIAA to protect the privacy of it's subscribers. Thus far the record companies have won each case

And EBay-annexed PayPal may have finally jumped the shark:
https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=p/gen/ua/use/index_frame&ed=mature
(They will no longer be along accounts or sales for "adult material".
It closely resembles the state of GA bible-belt laws) How this plays into their role as a clearinghouse and payment service is beyond me. It seems to endanger their common carrier status and their bottom line to censor accounts and transactions. WTF? So, who am I switching to for online money moving?

Sorry not to cite individual sources. http://eff.org, http://www.theregister.co.uk, http://slashdot.org, http://oreillynet.com, and for the really scary stuff http://cryptome.org, http://deadly.org has the stuff on the OpenBSD grant pull..

Oh, and a great many people are dying in China and other parts of the world from a corona virus induced condition labeled SARS. Global epidimological resources ahve been tasked, but Bejing is still lying to them, and has been for months, so their efforts to stop the epidemic are hamstrung.

Pyongyang not only acknowledged that it has nuclear weapons but threatened to use them.

Yeah, ain't that a kick in the pants?

Aren't you just a bucket of sunshine?

I just "registered complaints" with eBay and PayPal about their absurd (I even used the term "un-American") policy. For all the good it may do.. hah. But I'm looking at alternative services. Perhaps C-2it by Citibank?
The rest of the bad news in your post made my brain freeze. When it thaws, I might try for more info. Or I might huddle here under my fuzzy blanket and pray.

In a situation such as you describe, when the aim is not sexual contact but, hm, erotic domination, I don't think accepting domination from someone of the same gender makes the recipent bi. There's a difference between bisexuality and.. what I suppose I would term erotic comfort levels. For instance, I tried bisexuality. I quite enjoyed kissing the woman, and touching parts north of the ribcage. But the girly bits just.. don't interest me on a visceral level. There was a kind of clinical fascination (like a gynecologist intern?), but no arousal. It's man bits or nothing, apparently.

I get intellectual enjoyment out of women's sexuality, but it's more of a "Go sister go!" than a "Gotta have some of that!"

Recognize the icon? And did you see Cecil B. Demented? If not.. movie night again!
