Guest Post: Does Liz Truss Wear A BDSM Day Collar?

A black leather dog collar for BDSM play

Hey Twisties,

The past 24 hours have been nothing if short of eventful for me. It all started with a toilet that was rising to higher levels than normal and was threatening to flood our bathroom. I poured baking soda and white vinegar down it three times to try and bubble out the blockage, but that didn’t work. I tipped the last of my washing-up liquid and a bucketful of hot water down it to lubricate it that way, but nothing again. We even took turns assaulting it with a plunger and poking at it with a drain auger, but still the water rose up dangerously high with each flush. In the end, we had to call in the professionals. 

While I was waiting for a visit from the drain engineer yesterday, I decided to do a bit of blog stuff. I couldn’t go far from the phone, but I wasn’t going to sit here and twiddle my thumbs either. I checked my feedback forms, and that was when I saw the message from Gawker’s Tarpley Hitt.

The day collar theory fits somewhat in with the gossip. But is the woman currently pushing the British economy to the brink actually a collared BDSM enthusiast? That would make a certain amount of sense. If she weren’t, one might think 10 Downing Street would want to dispel the rumors, or at least allow them to be disproven.

I have to be honest and say that I narrowly declined Tarpley’s request, simply because I don’t like to get too caught up in conspiracy theories and rumours. I’m a very logical person, so unless the science or evidence is there to back up a theory then usually I’ll dismiss an idea completely. However, Tarpley had asked for my “professional” opinion on Lizz Truss’ “day collar” as someone who is into BDSM, and while I don’t class myself as a BDSM professional or a BDSM expert, I was still willing to share my thoughts. 

And to be honest? I’m glad that I did – my blog traffic doubled overnight!

I woke up early this morning in a state of disbelief. Me, the same girl who lives in a one-bedroom flat in sub-urban Bristol and still wears favourite t-shirts with holes and bleach stains on them. Me, the girl who keeps putting off taking a better photo for my “Meet The Author” page because, until now, it didn’t feel as important as keeping the home ticking over. I feel like I’ve exploded into the spotlight overnight and I’m not ready fir it, at all. I need an overhaul, my whole dann life needs an overhaul it feels. I need to rebrand me.

I am Kinkywithatwist.com now, and honestly, it feels incredible. I am my own boss now, the boss I always wanted to be, the boss I always knew I could be. I was told that I’d struggle to find work with my disabilities, and instead of giving up I said “that’s fine, I’ll work it out on my own instead”, and I do each day, on a wing and a prayer.

I am honestly really humbled and kind of flabbergasted by it all. I’ve been plodding along and seeing gradual blog growth for months and years now, but never did I expect to be making appearances on sites like Gawker.com, and to have them approach me, not the other way around. To inspire and change one life would be amazing for me, to inspire and change ten? Incredible, but to wake up and see that people are enjoying reading me this much? Honestly, thankyou, and thankyou again to Tarpley Hitt and Gawker.com for asking me and quoting me.

That’s it for this post, Twisties! What do you think of Liz Truss’ necklace? Do you think it symbolises anything kinky, or do you think this really is just another conspiracy theory gone too far? Let me know in the comments! 

Until next time!

Stay safe & have fun,

PS. The loo was fixed, but it was a mainline drain problem and nothing to do with my home!
