Sometimes PurpleSole and I like to have a meal by ourselves, I will make the kids their dinner and after we put them to bed we will have ours. Usually something naughty that isn’t really child suitable.
“I really fancy some sushi, don’t you?” I had already consumed my allotted amount of take-outs that month so it was a naughty request. I am limited to one unless there is really good reason, if I was left to my own devices I would have them all the time. Not good for my tummy or pockets.
“Only if I can take pictures of you with it first.”
‘Strange suggestion,’ I thought to myself, ‘is that really picture worthy?’ well it meant I could have sushi so I agreed. PS sorted the order and it arrived as planned just as we have finished putting the kids to bed.
PS had cleared our dining table of mats and the room of chairs. “Take your clothes off and lay on the table on your side please.”
My first thought wasn’t of how cold that table will be, it was that I must go and find the nice chopsticks to put in my hair… I lay down slowly on the table, the wood cold against my bare skin. I try and keep as still as possible as PS places maki down my side. I don’t think he even got half way before I was giggling and some pieces rolled off.
“Please try to stop moving so much.”
I had a research after our photos to find out more information about nyotaimori online. I knew it was ‘a thing’ but didn’t realise the apparent training women have to lay still for such a long time. I can see why as it is difficult, any movement (like breathing) can have disastrous effects.
After PS took a few snaps I did ask for a quick sushi removal and perhaps to lay on my back instead, hoping that it may provide a flatter surface. Alas, I don’t think I make a very good table. We had a lot of fun though. We could have taken a more serious ‘play scene’ approach and I think the humiliation of being used as an object would very much appeal to me. That coupled with PS eating off me, even perhaps denying me food until he had taken his desired amount. But I think it suited us better to be more relaxed and have a bit of a laugh instead. Plus it was very cold.
Maybe in the future we might have a repeat performance and try a few different things. I think somehow using the wasabi paste as a kind of paint would be interesting. From a play perspective if there were more people involved I think that would work really well. I’m not sure PS is ready for that yet though.
