Have you ever wondered who the most popular characters are at DeviantART?
I liked danlev's recent post on Trending deviantART Search Terms in October. It got me thinking about popular characters on DeviantART in terms of deviation count. I'm going to need some help with this research project.
Help Wanted, Reward Offered
Search for a character and submit the number of deviations found. You can post a screenshot or just put the number in a comment. Find a Top-10 character and get 100 points. Find a Top-50 character and get 10 points. Each person that faves this journal will get 1 point. If multiple people submit the same character, the first person gets the points.

A Major Breakthrough!!! =DHere I was expecting this weekend's journal to be me complaining about how school was taking up a lot of my time and that I wouldn't be able to post as often. Well, I had a major surprise yesterday!A Major Breakthrough!!! =D2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Remember months ago when I said I couldn't get an advertiser for my website? Well yesterday I was finally approved, but I have more reasons than that to be so ecstatic right now. I was expecting the advertisements to generate a few dollars a day for just some addition income, but it turns out that the ads are generating a lot more than I expected. When I say a lot, I mean TEN TIMES what I expected!!!!!!
It's only been about 24 hours, so it's still a little early to estimate just how much this could total in the long run. However, according to the numbers I've been crunching over and over, not only does this new source of income blow out any I've been making so far from commissions or YouTube, but IT COULD NOW BE POSSIBLE TO THIS FULL TIME!!!!
I'm going to give the site a little bit more tim
Does Bondage art Promote Rape?And if so, what to do about it?Does Bondage art Promote Rape?2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I started really chewing on this while reading some responses to Blurred Lines which referenced an article that linked "viewing images of objectified women to greater acceptance of sexual harassment and rape."
And it worries me a little.
Because AS a BDSM individual I happen to participate in, consume, and create a lot of art and activities that FROM THE OUTSIDE looks like women being objectified. Any member of the BDSM community worth his or her salt would tell you otherwise, that consent is at the very heart of a healthy Dom Sub relationship. Just read some of Shiniez' "Sunstone" if you had any doubts.

The X-Men made their comic book debut in 1963 as a group of mutants who were born with superhuman powers and were feared and hated by society for being different from humans.
The inspiration for The X-Men came from the Civil Rights Movement of the 1960s and was originally titled The Mutants. Marvel asked editor Stan Lee to change the title because they thought no one would know what the wor

Embracing DeceptionMidday yesterday (Saturday) I went to the grocery store, alone, in drag. Alex needed eggs for cupcakes, and was too tied up with the baking to go herself. If this were night, or I was going downtown, I wouldn't have considered it. But since it was public and midday, I decided to go.Embracing Deception2 years ago in Personal More Like This
And something magic happened:
I've gone out in drag before, many times. It's (mostly) uncomfortable. People stare. Kids laugh. Mothers usher their children behind them. It used to get me down, but eventually I've built up a bit of a tolerance to it. It's just part of being trans in the Bible belt.
I've often heard the argument that crossdressers crossdress for the attention. They go by the old adage: "negative attention is better than no attention", and maybe there's something to that. But when I'm out, getting hollered at by teenagers, the only thing I want is for the attention to go away.
To become invisible.
This, I think, is the allure to passing.

dominants came out healthiest/happiest, switches in the middle, and subs at the bottom, but still above all the non-kinky samples.
here's the abstract:
It has been generally thought that the practice of bondage-discipline, dominance-submission, sadism-masochism (BDSM) is in some form associated with psychopathology. However, several more recent studies suggest a relative good psychological health of BDSM practitioners.
The aim of this study was to compare scores of BDSM practitioners and a control group on various fundamental psychological characteristics.
The results mostly suggest favorable psychological characteristics of BDSM practitioners compared with the control group; BDSM practitioners were less neurotic, more extraverted, more open to new experiences, more conscienti

Most of my upbringing I was sexually abused by several people most notably my stepfather who later went to prison. In addition to the abuse I was not loved by my mother and had the responsibility for caring for my youngest sister during my teenage years. Already a classic introvert, I was extremely lonely and lived in survival mode everyday. My first taste of freedom was when I left home the day after my 18th birthday.
In my late teens I went to modeling school and for a few years was a model in the local town. Mostly fashion shows. Throughout the years I would do shoots for amateur photographers. Then in graduate school I had my first nude shoot in Big Sur, California with a professional photographer. It was my first taste of being comfortable in front o
