IF I WANT A CUTE ASS STEREOTYPICAL TATTOO IM GONNA GET ONE AND I WILL NOT NEED YOUR DOUCHY APPROVAL, YOU HUMAN BUTT-PLUG.
So I just heard about “Buzzy” through NPR — sounds like a genius invention for reducing pain from injections and other medical procedures. (Basically, it vibrates plus freezes the nerves proximal to the injection site, using “gate control” to block the signals coming from pain nerves!)
Has anybody out there in Medblr-land tried it yet? I’m thinking of getting some for my Urgent Care (and to try on the Cranquis kids’ during their flu shots).
Dr. Cranquis is not affiliated with the makers of Buzzy in any way, and has not been asked or paid to mention this product on the blog. Dr. Cranquis DOES wish he had thought of this idea first, though.
Confession of the day: If I had to choose one thing I could have for hours and never get tired of, it would be back rubs.
Back rubs can be highly sexual and erotic, combined with occasional nail scratching and biting. They can also be sensual and relaxing - an entirely innocent act. In a non-sexual way, they remind me of a very happy part of my childhood.
For me back rubs are the most intimate thing - besides making love - that connects two people’s bodies. Since it is such a special act for me that brings back very personal memories, it is a necessity for me to feel very close and conencted to the person I allow to trigger these emotions in me.
Back rubs are also an essential part of aftercare. With previous play partners I mostly had to deal without it, but I wouldn’t have let them do this to me anyway. When I am defenseless and raw and vulnerable, back rubs bring me back down most effectively. They cheer me up when I am sad, triple my happiness when I’m feeling good and cure me when I am sick.
Back rubs are magical.
