Christmas, Charity, and Forty Large

A lot of little lights will be brighter this year, because of YOU.

In 2012, on a whim, mere months after I entered the scene I decided to fill my wishlist with toys and asked you to buy them for charity. I gave out 3 loops as thank-you gifts (they are not offered in the Limited Edition Store so if you have them, you are an OG hypnofan of mine!)

That year, $677 worth of toys were bought. I donated them to an organization in MA which supports survivors of domestic and sexual violence.

I had long since lost touch with the truest magic of Christmas, but being able to give these toys to kiddos who were having a really rough Christmas absolutely made my year. And oh boy—I was hooked!

The annual Spiral Seductions charity drive has grown wildly since then. This year, we have files from five different Dommes and guess what?

Adding up all the years, we have crossed over the “$40,000 raised” mark.

This year’s drive will end tomorrow, December 1st, at 11:59pm EST.

(Realistically, I will probably get home from the hospital and crash at like 10pm and not take the drive stuff down until the following morning so people could donate overnight, but I’m only guaranteeing I will leave the donation pages up through 11:59pm.)

Please, please, keep the donations coming! Tell your friends! This is the LAST CHANCE to get anything from the Limited Edition Store for the next 355-ish days!

It’s also your last chance to donate to an amazing cause. We Dommes don’t earn a single cent from these files – it is a labor of love from start to finish. 100% of proceeds go directly to buying gifts for the organization which helps survivors of domestic and sexual violence.

Btw, while most of you haven’t been embittered by life (and have paid attention to all the donation receipts and pictures of packed cars heading for donation that I’ve posted over the years), I can appreciate some healthy skepticism. So for anyone wondering, the reason I say “proceeds” rather than “donations” is that we lose money to processing fees. It’s about 3.5%, but varies a few tenths of a percent each year depending on how many Amazon donations come through since those don’t lose anything.

So “100% of proceeds” means “100% of money that hits my account,” which is $7,554.14 of the $7,819.80 donated as of writing this post.

I also end up having to rent a car and buy gas or (like this year) hiring my handyman to do the 8-hour round-trip drive, so actually this drive ends up costing me money. (It’s so worth it. This is my favorite time of year.)

Thank you to everyone who has taken part, and A HUGE “Thanks, I hate you, but seriously THANKS” to all you last-minute donors who will make tomorrow special. I know you’re out there, testing my nerves, stressing me out, making me wonder what the final total will actually BE. But you’re also the ones who make the last day magical. Pretty please do that again this year!!

I’ll try to update a couple times if I can during the day tomorrow, but I’ll be pretty busy trying not to kill any patients.

Charity Drive 2018 Countdown…

It’s almost that time of year again! This will be the 6th year we collect donations around the holidays and use them to make Christmas brighter for survivors of sexual/domestic violence and their kiddos.

During this charity drive, as always, the Limited Edition Store will be open and you may claim these exclusive files as thank-you gifts for your donations. This year’s drive dates are as follows:

WED, November 21st — SAT, December 1st

And oh boy, you’re in for an incredible treat in 2018. FIVE Dommes (yes, including myself) have contributed a total of SEVEN new files to the Limited Edition Store this year. Trust me, I know – holy shit.

CHECK US THE HELL OUT:
(Clicking on anyone’s image will bring you to their webpage…)

I can’t overstate how cool this is, how amazing the files are this year, or how badly you’re going to kick yourself if you don’t donate during the charity drive.

Because while most of you know this, I’ll repeat it for our newcomers – you can ONLY get Limited Edition files for the days the charity drive is going on. That’s just a handful of days per year. If you miss them now, your next chance to get them will be at the end of 2019!

There will be plenty more information when the drive opens Wednesday*, including descriptions for all new files (a few are already up!), detailed instructions on how to donate, info about the cause we support and the family we “adopted” and more.

For now just do what you do best and get excited. 😉

*Please note that when I say the drive will open on Wednesday, I am not promising when. Early afternoon is my guess, but I’m putting in 15-hour days at the hospital both Monday and Tuesday, so let’s be real, I will not be dragging my ass out of bed Wednesday morning at a respectable hour.

Halcyon Daze

As many of you have figured out, I’ve privately released my first file in a LONG time!

I love this one… It’s just absolutely everything I want in a dominant hypnotic trance. I know you’re going to love it too! (In fact, some of you who have it have already told me how much you love it, lol.)

Length: 18+ minutes (optionally loopable)
Price: $19.99 $9.99

NOTE: The intro price of $9.99 is valid through 01/11/2018, and is only available to those who received a NF email with a private Goody Bag link! On Friday, the file goes live to the public and the price will be $19.99.

If you don’t already have this file, go check your NF account RIGHT NOW and see if you were among the lucky ones to get a link to the private and discounted Goody Bag. If not, you can wait until Friday to buy it when the bag goes live to the public!

This is a singularly sultry, layered erotic trance – truly the Halcyon Daze. It’s a gorgeous hypnotic mind warp perfect for every submissive friend, fan, or follower.

It’s an all-consuming mesmerizing experience of deepest submission, a craving to serve, intense physical arousal, deep peace and pleasure, and an abiding need to be MINE – can you imagine anything sweeter or more perfect?

You’ll want to re-live these Halcyon Daze over and over again.

And you CAN!!! Because this mp3 works as a straight-shot trance or it can be looped for extended pleasure and play.

Since it’s loopable, there is no induction. This file is ALL content, and uses my Drop Like a Rock trigger in the place of a induction.

(On that note, don’t be alarmed that it starts a little abruptly with no music fade in or anything – don’t worry, that IS the beginning, that format is what makes it loopable!)

*This is a NF-Exclusive file. It will not be made free, nor will it be available for purchase on any other platform or with any other payment method.

‘Twas the Night

Tomorrow morning, dozens of families recovering from domestic and sexual violence are going to celebrate better, brighter Christmases because of everything you guys helped us do. Ladies and gents, subs and Dommes – so many people came together to donate to our annual charity drive and raised $8,890.53!!!

I bought a lot of presents with it… Like, a lot.

Then I tetris-ed them into boxes:

Many boxes. And I tetris-ed those into a mini-van I rented:

AND AWAY WE WENT. It was amazing! The 8 hours of driving I did right after a final exam wasn’t exactly paradise, but it was SO worth it! The people at the organization were incredibly humbled and grateful, and knowing so many kids (including those in our adopted family!) are going to have such wonderful visits from Santa made my day – made my week, my year really.

It’s not just the gifts for the kids that help the families. I bought a lot of gifts for women too, because the organization sets up a whole “store” (obviously doesn’t cost anything to shop in) for the kids to pick out gifts for their moms. They know mom went through hell. Many probably witnessed the violence done to mom and would give anything to make her feel better. And not only will those kids get great gifts themselves, they get to give mom something special too. How awesome will that be!?!?

No one has been all up in my inbox like, “Okay, but how do we know you don’t secretly have like 12 kids you’re just making us Christmas shop for your little brats?” I’d chalk your trust up to my six and a half years on the EH scene, but I’ve been doing this drive since the start and I’ve never had anyone be mistrustful even when I was brand new.

But I like to give you proof that I donated anyway. Or, at least, the closest I can come to proof. I have to heavily redact this because it has a family member’s real info and also because unfortunately association with a sex worker might not be the best thing for an organization that helps women who are victims of sexual abuse. But I’m in possession of a donation receipt for $8900 worth of stuff given to a non-profit in Florida on December 11th of this year, at least!

I donate in a loved one’s name, as a Christmas gift of sorts to him, so that’s why donor info is back in my home state of MA, in a town that you’ll recognize from my previous wishlists, lol.

Yes, it’s for like $10 more than y’all donated. I over-buy a bit because I’m always afraid things will arrive broken at the last minute and I’ll be under. I also shell out for rental car and gas. I’m a peach. 😀

One more thank-you to everyone who participated. This is seriously my favorite time of year, and it’s all because of your generosity. If you missed the drive, start saving up NOW and follow me on Twitter so you’ll be ready when the drive kicks off in 2018!

Mistress Amethyst’s FREE File!

Mistress Amethyst likes to record a FREE FILE around the holidays and this year ONLY people who donated to the charity event this year can get a copy!  She’s a little under the weather and is going to wait a bit to record until her voice is in mind-melting form again. The silver lining to this is that you have one last chance to get on the list of people who are going to receive her file!

ANYONE who donated to the charity drive is eligible to receive Mistress Amethyst’s free file. It doesn’t matter how much you donated or whether your donation was already used to claim files in the Limited Edition store or not. I have sent an email this evening with the subject “Checking Her List…” to everyone already on the list.

If you donated to the drive but did NOT get an email from me tonight and would like to be added to the list to receive Mistress Amethyst’s FREE FILE, you must reply to the Limited Edition Claim Form you submitted after donating to the drive. That’s how I will verify your donation.

THIS FILE HAS BEEN GIVEN OUT ALREADY. You can have access to it next year.

Charity Drive 2017 Wrap-Up

This has been a busy year for me and an even busier one for Charlotte. We were worried it might affect donations this year.

We were right. The average donation per person dropped significantly.

I was glad, initially, that I only set our goal at $6,522 (seemingly arbitrary, but the amount at which our lifetime total across all drives would exceed $30,000) and I was even a little nervous we might not meet it.

Thankfully, we did! We even, remarkably, exceeded it toward the end of the drive.

Then I started to wonder… What are the chances we beat last year’s total? “Beating last year” has been a theme since this drive started. Every year has been better than the last. Last year we raised ~$7,534. Which, true to form, bested the year before it – but by less than two hundred dollars. I wondered if there ANY chance we could do that again. The thought of even squeaking by just $10 or $15 ahead of last year seemed like a bit of a dream.

Would we end up CLOSE to last year’s total?

It turns out the answer was no.

We didn’t end up close to last year’s amount. We ended up way past it. You guys worked together, dug deep, and raised $8,790 in ten days.

I’ll give you a minute to let that sink in.

Actually, never mind. The concerted act of true goodness taking place here can’t really sink in over the course of a minute or two. I’ve had 14 hours to think about it, and I’m still entirely dumbfounded. So let’s just move on, lol.

I am profoundly grateful to have such selfless, giving fans, friends, and followers. So many women and children who have fled domestic and sexual violence this year are going to get the Christmas they deserve because of you. There will be another post about the donating itself – my jammed rental car, donation receipts, etc.  But for now, while I’m still getting everything ready, just know I am moved and pleased beyond the scope of my verbal prowess which, let’s face it, is staggering. 😛

Last – but not even close to least – I want to send SO MUCH LOVE TO MY FELLOW SEXWORKERS who tweeted about the drive, encouraged their followers to donate, and cheered me on behind the scenes.

As I said earlier, the average individual donation amounts decreased. But that didn’t matter. Because we saw a huge increase in the NUMBER of people who donated. While only about 9% of those who donated made note that they were donating for the sole purpose of honoring another domme’s wish for followers to contribute, I’m absolutely convinced the large increase in the number of donations has a lot to do with my signal-boosting sister sexworkers. You ladies are amazing. Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart!

Now I’m off to do some more shopping… I’ve been spending like mad but I’ve still got $500-$600 to put toward gifts.

Nightcall

Entirely naked except for a blindfold, he slept. I closed the front door silently behind me and slipped out of my shoes. The soft carpet conspired to keep my approach silent. The light from the dining room faded as I tiptoed down the hall, so just the barest hint remained in the bedroom.

Enough lingered so I could see the shape of his pale arm on top of the dark blanket. His vulnerability was intoxicating. I traced my fingers down his shoulder and upper arm, hardened muscle even in the looseness of sleep. Hungry for him, aching to spur him into command-following action, I wrapped my fingers around the back of his arm and squeezed.

So fast I didn’t see it coming, his other arm shot out and he seized me. With a fluid, practiced motion, he locked his hand around my thumb, twisting down and away, so my body was forced to follow. I had guessed this might happen so I didn’t cry out or try to pull away. There wasn’t any pain anyway, he had stopped just short of that. He was coiled but calm.

Silent, frozen, I waited with a smile he couldn’t see melting across my lips. After a single breath, in and out, he said my name. It was a question.

Yes. It’s me. 

He disengaged as soon as he heard my voice and said he was sorry.

Don’t be. It’s… inspiring.

I could see his brow scrunch up beneath the blindfold. “What is?” he asked.

To see training so deeply embedded.
