I love how Ann uses that combo of elegance and intelligence to talk openly about sexuality with out being sterile, preachy, or even erotic. She's obviously full of knowledge and can talk about these highly sexual topics while keeping them accessible.
I think at the end of more than one of her videos she says something like, "So have fun." And it occurres to me that her intention with her communication is really just that, and it works.
Thank you, Ann, for letting me see that pure enjoyment of my body and my own eroticism can be as you are, elegant, intentional, intelligent, and amazingly beautiful.

I look forward to learning even more from u... :)

Ann is one of the sweetest, kindest, and loving individuals I know... Ask her to talk about her passion of great heart connected sex and watch out! This lady knows what she is talking about!

Oh Ann! It seems like a lifetime since I first wrote your first Testimonial. I have searched high and wide and rarely have I found (nay, stumbled upon) such a wonderous woman like you. Your positive sexuality and energy provides hope for me and all guys that women should or would be like-minded. I love your candor and naughtiness. I wished I could meet you just to hug and congratulate you on a "fine job" so far representing those kinds of women I so endear. Keep up the "hours of tv watching" and all the other things you so love while providing such exquisite pleasure.
ps: I'm officially envious of your partner....j/k.

You are a wondrous woman. Strong, creative, sensual, very sexy, a dream, embodied as a woman. Like any man who has read your thoughts I revival in the thought of being with a lover like you.

Ann, our Goddess of all things good; You serve as an example of what happens when we open ourselves to others. You are one of the neatest (outdated term), finest (maybe another ), delightful, desirable, bright human beings I have ever had the pleasure of brushing into (via internet). We are sexual beings and we can live the way we want and people will love us for it. Stay on your path for all of us. I hope I have the real pleasure of meeting you soon.
Kisses and Hugs

Ann reminds me of a modern day Dr. Kinsey. I find her to be a sexy girl who is friendly, happy, free spirited, cultured, curious, kind hearted, honest, trusting and intelligent.

We met in Tribe….. an unlikely place - So foreign and so fun
And neither of us was looking, for anything or anyone
I knew it could never happen - At least not the way they say
But somehow it all changed for me – That special friendship acceptance day
I don't know how it happened - And likely never will
But every time I see your picture - You make my heart go still
I tried to stay away - And not come on here anymore
But my heart would not allow it - Because that is what it's for
A million fantasies raced thru my mind – Are you really what you seem?
And will you be - anything like - the woman I see in my dream.
Not many people know me true- We didn’t speak too much
But you - for some odd reason - I feel that I can trust
So for you my dear - I write this poem - As an offer of my love
Except it as a gift from me - Because your friendship is my gift from above

As time goes by,,, people leave. Promises of friendship fade ~ the truth comes out ~
Ann stands by,,, her word of friendship, bond. Her fault she believes people at face value, why, it's how she is. to use a horse term "what'ca see what'ca ya get". Honest as the days long.
A loving soul, so easy a target for green eyed monsters, and the dishonest.
Don't blame the lier,,, blame those who believe the lie?
(sounds a lot like the BDSM crowd in SF as of late).

Dearest Ann; I've noticed that you have a particular allure and charm that draws older more mature men to you. I confess to being one of them joyfully. I'm sure the younger gentlemen are there for you as well, but you are to be complimented for your loving and understanding charm and behavior. We mature gentlemen will be like bee's to the nectar for you always.
"The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated."
“I have from an early age abjured the use of meat, and the time will come when men such as I will look upon the murder of animals as they now look upon the murder of men.”
Leanardo Da Vinci
I have loved animals since I was very young, I was raised with a Boxer named Clipper and many other dogs. When I left home I switched to cats. I have three bad boys cats named Jesse James, Billy the Kitten and SunnyBunny the Sundance Kid, they do eat meat.
I have not eaten meat or chicken for almost 40 years. Now, I do eat some seafood and fish like salmon and crab. My parents and brother stopped eating chicken and meat years ago because of my example. I never push not eating meat as I find it just turns people off. Leading by example works very well.

The Secret Revealed
"You have your way. I have my way. As for the right way, the correct way, and the only way, it does not exist."
by Maya Angelou
Pretty women wonder where my secret lies
I'm not cute or built to suit a model's fashion size
But when I start to tell them
They think I'm telling lies.
It's in the reach of my arms
The span of my hips
The stride of my steps
The curl of my lips.
I'm a woman
I walk into a room
Just as cool as you please
And to a man
The fellows stand or
Fall down on their knees
Then they swarm around me
A hive of honey bees.
It's the fire in my eyes
And the flash of my teeth
The swing of my waist
And the joy in my feet.
I'm a woman
Men themselves have wondered
What they see in me
They try so much
But they can't touch
My inner mystery.
When I try to show them
They say they still can't see.
It's in the arch of my back
The sun of my smile
The ride of my breasts
The grace of my style.
I'm a woman
Now you understand
Just why my head's not bowed
I don't shout or jump about
Or have to talk real loud
When you see me passing
It ought to make you proud.
It's in the click of my heels
The bend of my hair
The palm of my hand
The need for my care.
'Cause I'm a woman
Still I Rise
You may write me down in history
With your bitter, twisted lies,
You may trod me in the very dirt
But still, like dust, I'll rise.
Does my sassiness upset you?
Why are you beset with gloom?
'Cause I walk like I've got oil wells
Pumping in my living room.
Just like moons and like suns,
With the certainty of tides,
Just like hopes springing high,
Still I'll rise.
Did you want to see me broken?
Bowed head and lowered eyes?
Shoulders falling down like teardrops.
Weakened by my soulful cries.
Does my haughtiness offend you?
Don't you take it awful hard
'Cause I laugh like I've got gold mines
Diggin' in my own back yard.
You may shoot me with your words,
You may cut me with your eyes,
You may kill me with your hatefulness,
But still, like air, I'll rise.
Does my sexiness upset you?
Does it come as a surprise
That I dance like I've got diamonds
At the meeting of my thighs?
Out of the huts of history's shame
Up from a past that's rooted in pain
I'm a black ocean, leaping and wide,
Welling and swelling I bear in the tide.
Leaving behind nights of terror and fear
Into a daybreak that's wondrously clear
Bringing the gifts that my ancestors gave,
I am the dream and the hope of the slave.
“Don’t use being unhappy with your body as an excuse to not take care of your body and not cherish it. One of the nicest things you can do for your body is have sex, whether with yourself or with someone else”
When the Earth Moves: Women and Orgasm by Mikaya Heart’s
I Believe ...
That we don't have to change
friends if we understand that friends change.
That no matter how good a friend is,
they're going to hurt you every once in a
while and, you must forgive them for that.
That true friendship continues
to grow, even over the longest distance.
Same goes for true love.
That you can do something in an instant
that will give you heartache for life.
That it's taking me a long time
to become the person I want to be.
That you should always leave loved ones with
loving words. It may be the last time you see them.
That you can keep going long after you can't.
That we are responsible for
what we do, no matter how we feel.
That either you control your attitude
or it controls you.
That regardless of how hot and steamy a
relationship is at first, the passion fades and there
had better be something else to take its place.
That heroes are the people who do what
has to be done when it needs to be done,
regardless of the consequences.
That money is a lousy way of keeping score.
That my best friend and I can do anything
or nothing and have the best time!
That sometimes the people you expect to kick you when
you're down, will be the ones to help you get back up.
That sometimes when I'm angry I have the right to
be angry, but that doesn't give me the right to be cruel.
That just because someone doesn't love you the way you want
them to doesn't mean they don't love you with all they have.
That maturity has more to do with what types of experiences
you've had and what you've learned from them and less to
do with how many birthdays you've celebrated.
That it isn't always enough to be forgiven by others.
Sometimes you have to learn to forgive yourself.
That no matter how bad your heart is
broken the world doesn't stop for your grief.
That our background and circumstances may have influenced
who we are, but we are responsible for who we become.
That just because two people argue, it
doesn't mean they don't love each other, And just
because they don't argue, it doesn't mean they do.
That you shouldn't be so eager to find
out a secret. It could change your life forever.
That two people can look at the exact
same thing and see something totally different.
That your life can be changed in a matter
of hours by people who don't even know you.
That even when you think you have no more to give, when a
friend cries out to you - you will find the strength to help.
That credentials on the wall do not make
you a decent human being.
That the people you care about most in
life are taken from you too soon.
It doesn’t interest me what you do for a living.
I want to know what you ache for
and if you dare to dream of meeting your heart’s longing.
It doesn’t interest me how old you are.
I want to know if you will risk looking like a fool
for your dream
for the adventure of being alive.
It doesn’t interest me what planets are squaring your moon...
I want to know if you have touched the centre of your own sorrow
if you have been opened by life’s betrayals
or have become shriveled and closed
from fear of further pain.
I want to know if you can sit with pain
mine or your own
without moving to hide it
or fade it
or fix it.
I want to know if you can be with joy
mine or your own
if you can dance with wildness
and let the ecstasy fill you to the tips of your fingers and toes
without cautioning us to
remember the limitations of being human.
It doesn’t interest me if the story you are telling me
I want to know if you can
to be true to yourself.
If you can bear the accusation of betrayal
and not betray your own soul.
If you can be faithless
and therefore trustworthy.
I want to know if you can see Beauty
even when it is not pretty
And if you can source your own life
from its presence.
I want to know if you can live with failure
yours and mine
and still stand at the edge of the lake
and shout to the silver of the full moon,
It doesn’t interest me
to know where you live or how much money you have.
I want to know if you can get up
after the night of grief and despair
weary and bruised to the bone
and do what needs to be done
to feed the children.
It doesn’t interest me who you know
or how you came to be here.
I want to know if you will stand
in the centre of the fire
and not shrink back.
It doesn’t interest me where or what or with whom
you have studied.
I want to know what sustains you
from the inside
when all else falls away.
I want to know if you can be alone
and if you truly like the company you keep
in the empty moments.

I just found this on a forum about someone who just lost her kitty Having animals companions has been a big part of my life since I was born. It is so difficult to lose a beloved companion.
Sun, November 22, 2009 - 8:56 AM
I think this would be good fro non pet owners to read too.
When you bring a pet into your life, you begin a journey. A journey that will bring you more love and devotion than you have ever known, yet will also test your strength and courage. If you allow, the journey will teach you many things, about life, about yourself, and most of all, about love. You will come away changed forever, for one soul cannot touch another without leaving its mark.
Along the way, you will learn much about savoring life's simple pleasures -- jumping in leaves, snoozing in the sun, the joys of puddles, and even the satisfaction of a good scratch behind the ears or on the belly. If you spend much time outside, you will be taught how to truly experience every element, for no rock, leaf, or log will go unexamined, no rustling bush will be overlooked, and even the very air will be inhaled, pondered, and noted as being full of valuable information.
Your pace may be slower, except when heading home to the food dish, but you will become a better naturalist, having been taught by an expert in the field. Too many times we hike on automatic pilot, our goal being to complete the trail rather than enjoy the journey. We miss the details; the colorful mushrooms on the rotting log, the honeycomb in the old maple snag, the hawk feather caught on a twig.
Once we walk as a dog does, we discover a whole new world. We stop; we browse the landscape, we kick over leaves, peek in tree holes, look up, down, all around. And we learn what any dog knows that nature has created a marvelously complex world that is full of surprises, that each cycle of the seasons bring ever changing wonders, each day an essence all its own, each day a gift from God.
Even from indoors you will find yourself more attuned to the world around you. You will find yourself watching: summer insects collecting on a screen; how bizarre they are; how many kinds there are or noting the flick and flash of fireflies through the dark. You will stop to observe the swirling dance of windblown leaves, or sniff the air after a rain. It does not matter that there is no objective in this; the point is in the doing, in not letting life's most important details slip by.
You will find yourself doing silly things that your pet-less friends might not understand: spending thirty minutes in the grocery aisle looking for the cat food brand your feline must have, buying dog birthday treats, or driving around the block an extra time because your pet enjoys the ride. You will roll in the snow, wrestle with chewie toys, bounce little rubber balls till your eyes cross and even run around the house trailing your bathrobe tie with a cat in hot pursuit, all in the name of love.
Your house will become muddier and hairier. You will wear less dark clothing and buy more lint rollers. You may find dog biscuits in your pocket or purse, and feel the need to explain that an old plastic shopping bag adorns your living room rug because your cat loves the crinkly sound. You will learn the true measure of love. The steadfast, undying kind that says,''It doesn't matter where we are or what we do, or how life treats us as long as we are together''
Respect this always. It is the most precious gift any living soul can give another. You will not find it often among the human race. And you will learn humility. The look in my dog's eyes often made me feel ashamed. Such joy and love at my presence. She saw not some flawed human who could be cross and stubborn, moody or rude, but only her wonderful companion. Or maybe she saw those things and dismissed them as mere human foibles, not worth considering, and so chose to love me anyway.
If you pay attention and learn well, when the journey is done, you will be not just a better person, but the person your pet always knew you to be. The one they were proud to call beloved friend.
I must caution you that this journey is not without pain. Like all paths of true love, the pain is part of loving. For as surely as the sun sets, one day your dear animal companion will follow a trail you cannot yet go down. And you will have to find the strength and love to let them go. A pet's time on earth is far too short, especially for those that love them. We borrow them, really, just for a while, and during these brief years they are generous enough to give us all their love every inch of their spirit and heart, until one day there is nothing left. The cat that only yesterday was a kitten is all too soon old and frail and sleeping in the sun. The young pup of boundless energy now wakes up stiff and lame, the muzzle gone to gray.
Deep down we somehow always knew that this journey would end. We knew that if we gave our hearts they would be broken. But give them we must for it is all they ask in return. When the time comes, and the road curves ahead to a place we cannot see, we give one final gift and let them run on ahead, young and whole once more. ''God speed, good friend,'' we say, until our journey comes full circle and our paths cross again.
And bless their souls for sharing their lives with us...and adding so much to our very existence.

I just got back from taking Jesse the cat for a walk in the rain. This is the second time he has walked in the rain. Amazingly, the rain does not seem to bother him very much.
Fri, February 13, 2009 - 5:26 PM
Both times it has been drizzling when we left and then the rain got heavier. He does not like the heavier rain but he still walks. When he knows we are getting close to home he walks faster. I like it when he walks faster. Sometimes he just putters along and is just being a cat. I can get a little frustrated with him at those times and I usually take him home.
The first walk in the rain he walked all around the block. When he knew we were close to home he took off in a run until he reached the end of the retractable leash. I ended up running after him.
He even walks in the mud and little puddles and he is very wet with muddy feet when we get home.
I often pick him up when we walk but not when he has dirty feel like that. I have two coats that have mud from Jesse's feet on them.
When we get home I wrap him in a towel and dry him off. He purrs, even when I dry his feet.
I want to get him a raincoat but most of them are too big around and not long enough. He has a a very long thin body. A coat for a dachshund would be good.
I think he might even wear it as long as the armholes are tight to his body. I put something on him and when he walked his front legs came out of the armholes.
The photo is not of Jesse, just a cat on a leash.

I got the kitties a new cat toy and they love it. They sit around it and take turns, it's very cute. A string comes out the bottom and then it goes back in and around again. Sunny is so quick and strong that he pulls the whole door when he has the string in his mouth.
Fling-ama-String Cat Toy
The battery operated, lean, mean string-flinging machine that cats love. No assembly required simply hang it on the door and turn it on. Works on any standard doorknob. The Fling-ama-String has two speeds for maximum kitty fun. This toy entices even the laziest of cats to play and improves eye-paw coordination.
I'm in the house on the telephone and a friend is outside in front when I hear a loud noise. I thought it was the cats being destructo units again when my friend comes in and says that someone hit the recycling cans and took out the small tree in front and that she was almost hit too. Luckily she was not but she had just been where the cans were a few moments earlier. I'm so happy that she was not hit, that would have been terrible.
Wed, January 28, 2009 - 5:41 PM
I saw the rear end of the car and I was going to call the police when my friend said it was my next door neighbor who had done it. She is elderly and her husband does not drive anymore. They have a few kids who are often in the house helping. Maybe she hit the wrong petal or something. There are skid marks. She came back and I asked her if she was ok. She said she was but I'm not sure. She was very calm or she seemed to be. She was not very apologetic about taking out the tree, she just said to call the city but maybe she was in shock.
I'm sorry that the tree is gone but much better the tree than my friend or my car or the neighbor hitting the telephone pole. The tree was small and it came out in one piece but without it's roots. I have to call the city and see what I can replace it with. Maybe they will take away the old tree. I'm not sure that recycling will pick it up. It's leaning against the big green can of leaves and food.
Oh well, one tree down, it could have been much worse.
I hope you all have a wonderful 2009 filled with gratitude, happiness, love and joy!

I'm very pleased with my matches so far. I've met two and it's going well.
Tue, December 30, 2008 - 1:38 AM
I went out with one man for lunch and about a week later he cooked me dinner which I really appreciated. He was also at Nude Aid too. I'll see him on New Year's Eve too. I met his main lover and we had previously met but we got to know each other better and we like each other. She is fine with him seeing me.
Tonight I had dinner with another match from poly speed dating. We had a wonderful time talking for 7 hours. I learned things from him and I love learning so that was good. I also got to do some of my happiness coaching homework exercises on him and he had some valuable feedback for me.
We have another date next week.
someone who is present and aware of themselves and the other person,
looking in each other's eyes,
breathing together, making sounds together
soft, slow, long strokes all over my body,
building up the erotic energy,
being aware, energy, awareness of the energy, following the energy,
an erotic massage
any orgasm without genital stimulation,
surrender, trust, feeling submissive, a nice spanking,
feeling what I am doing to someone in my own body,
vocalizing those feelings,
cuddling afterward, feeling languid
being in water, touching in water
