I think I've stumbled blindly into a fetish.
When I was trying to think of a name for this blog, I went through some names that were already used. I thought I might want to call it something wrestling-related, as it's one of my main interests. Lucy suggested Headscissors. It's a wrestling move. It also sounds cool: "I'm scissoring up your mind! I'm cutting your brain to ribbons! Everything you thought was wrong, and everything you thought was wrong was wrong, but not in the way you thought!"
I thought I was the coolest man alive (James Brown had recently died).
But it seems that everything has not only already been done, but has been done with the express purpose of giving people erections.
I have stumbled into a fetish. Headscissors is a fetish.
To be fair, it's basis is still as a wrestling move. But instead of Dory Funk Jr using the headscissors as a way to wear down Jack Brisco in a sixty-minute mat clinic, it's 'the girl Nadège from Belgium' performing the act on a middle-aged man.
I found this out by looking at the videos chosen as related to the video I posted below. On the right-hand side of the Youtube page you can see Nadège and other similar people.
One of my key words related to this blog. These are headscissors-related videos. It seems it was a mistake.
As fetishes go, it could be a lot worse. I don't fancy having my head squeezed between the thighs of a dominant woman. But everyone's different; I say tomato, you say 'I... can't... breathe!'. I'm not anti-fetish. I may not understand them, but what you do in your own home is none of my business.
But it doesn't instil much confidence in the artistic merit of my own video when it's associated with 'See How Pretty Femdom Does Her Headscissor Moves! Must See!'. The content of that video is almost entirely distinct from the content of mine.
It wasn't like this when I first posted it! There were links to self-help videos, which was understandable. But this was a little unexpected. I suppose 'headscissors' is a more popular search term than 'self-help'. I can't decide if that's a good thing. It does explain the comment I got at the bottom of this entry, I suppose.
I don't really know how to react. I suppose the chances of choosing a blog name that doesn't have sexual connotations are slim. It's lucky I didn't go for 'Piledriver'. That could have been a lot worse.
I suppose the question is: do I feel uncomfortable with the thought of people masturbating whilst reading this?
And the answer is: no, not really.
I kind of assumed it would happen. After all there are pictures of me on here, and people are only human.
I assume that there's a few masturbators for every post, male and female. Perhaps when I'm talking about politics or evolution the number goes down slightly. And likewise, when I'm talking about waffles, the number increases.
I'm fine with it. If you're masturbating right now, you have my full support. As long as no-one is being hurt (or in the case of headscissors, no-one is being hurt against their will), I condone and endorse your fetishes.
I think we should all be tolerant of people and their preferences. One man's pervert is another man's messiah (in some extreme cases).
This blog is a broad church. Some people come for the inflammatory rhetoric, some come for the moving prose, some come for the amusing comedy slant I give on everyday life, some come for the philosophy. And some come because they want to be trapped in the inescapable thighscissor of a Chinese boy, and punched in the head.
And I think we should be glad that we live in such a free society that so many different pursuits are allowed. We shouldn't value one above the other. As Jeremy Bentham said, "Prejudice apart, the game of push-pin is of equal value with the arts and sciences of music and poetry."
He didn't mention headscissors. But on utilitarian grounds, we have to assume he was up for it.
