The Return

After a bit of a hiatus, I’ve decided to come back to this blog because I’ve got some new erotic stories developing in my head.

Until a couple of days ago, I thought my hiatus would be permanent, that Butchtastic would be trapped in the amber of its past and available to any new readers who discovered it, or readers returning for hot stories and nostalgia.  Can you believe this blog is 10 years old now?

The break was necessary.  So much of energy and passion I put into the blog was generated by relationships that have ended. Add to that my second child coming along in in 2009 and sapping my energy like a small, adorable vampire and you have a perfect storm to slow, and eventually stop, my blogging.

There’s also been a change in the blogosphere, in my opinion.  Back when I was posting regularly, there was a community of sex bloggers and readers who followed each other, commented and cross-posted.  All of which contributed to a rich and vibrant collective voice.

Another factor has been at play as well.  I started taking testosterone and changed my name and pronouns about 4 years ago.  That process kicked off a storm of changes in my life.  Some of those changes are in the sphere of sexuality, passion, arousal and desire, all balled up with identity (private and public) and  revival of my kink life with my new sweetie.  These are the topics I feel drawn to share with the readers of this blog.

I still get questions about some of the people I used to blog about and I’m going to give you all one blanket answer right now:  I’m not going to write about my exes here, or anywhere. So please no questions about how Roxy or Mrs. Kyle or others are doing.

If you decide to stick around to see what I’m up to these days, I hope you will take a moment to comment or send me an email.  Also, if you want to see a different side of me, you can check out my other blog, Adventures with Words, for information about non-erotic writing projects, book reviews and thoughts on current events.

Butchtastic will continue to be the place I post erotica, and explore kink, gender and sexuality.  Though I haven’t been blogging about any of this for a while, I’ve been going deeper into kink than ever before, thanks in part to my Sweetie.  My Sweetie was previously known as Red on this blog.  They are genderfluid and use they/them pronouns.

Will you come back for more?  That’s up to you.  Either way, I think it’s time to get back to the mission I undertook over 10 years ago… hope to see you here.

    Thank you for coming back! I was just thinking of you the other day as my kinky gender-fluid wife negotiates a possible transition.

    Thank you for this lovely greeting. K

    No questions, eh? Well, then, how about a few answers, instead? 😉

    Like that I’m doing ok, despite having had to suddenly choose between family and blogging, and that you and I still keep up online, despite the distance. That I’ve had the pleasure of watching your spawn grow up into amazing, beautiful individuals. That I am so happy that you and your Sweetie have created a loving, gorgeous, deliriously happy life together.

    That I am thrilled you’ll be sharing your writing on the blog again.

    Congratulations, Kyle. Go get ’em, tiger!

    Thank you, my dear. You have always been one of my chief champions and inspirations. K
