#Cuckold #Hotwife #Wannabe #Reading I enjoyed reading Katie’s 2019 experiential book –“How to be Hot”. Short and pithy primer for wife and couples (44 pages) with a few typos. My reflections @podofeleus @_ryangould99 @HotwifeStudy 🧵1/17
amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B07…
This book is a sequentially structured helicopter view of lessons learned over perhaps 2 decades plus from pre-courtship to becoming established hotwife, blogger, and aspirant erotica novelist. However, Katie has vanished from the net now. See contents list 2/17 Image
I really appreciated: the emphasis on sexual comms between couples outside of the bedroom, clear positive off-ramps for the wife and couple at every stage, useful non bedroom ideas on games and role plays, and a good checklist for guys to be careful of what they wish for! 3/17

WHEN IS SUPREME LORD BRAHMA, WHEN IS HE VISNU AND WHEN IS HE RUDRA!!

1/5

Reference Varaha Purana

Sage Agastya asked Rudra "O Lord, tell me at which time are you Rudra, at which time are you Brahma and at which time are you Visnu"

Rudra Replied:
2/5

"Visnu is Supreme Brahman and in Vedas and sastras he is said to have 3 forms. Visnu for sake of Devas assumes human form in every yuga and praises me. For the sake of the world & gods, I worship these two forms of the lord (divine and human) in the Svetadvipa in Krtayuga.
3/5

At the time of creation, I extol Brahma and become time. And in that Krtayuga, Brahma, Devas and Asuras extol me.

People who seek pleasure sacrifice to me in my form as linga, and those who seek liberation sacrifice to me mentally in my form as the thousand-headed.
