Jury Member: Tiggs

Jury - Tiggs

Last week the entries for the Smut Marathon 2018 opened and, starting today, the five jury members will introduce themselves. The first is Tiggs, a beautiful reader of so many erotic blogs and on occasion she has written something for Wicked Wednesday.

I have struggled writing this as what could I possibly say that would appease, entice or seduce those of you reading this of my qualities to be on this jury? After all I have no blog or giant twitter or Instagram account. In search of a defence I asked advocates and eye witnesses what they would say about me. This turned out to be quite touching an experience; the kind words kinky folks took the time to write about me almost made me cry. Common themes were that I am insatiably curious, fascinated by others & life’s experiences, and fully enthusiastic. Unsurprisingly given my Avi and twitter handle a few mentioned I was bOuNcY – a good account for Tiggs of 100AcreSub.

So why this name? Tiggs is short for Tigger and 100 acres are references to AA Milne’s stories of Winnie the Pooh and his motley friends. Tigger as a character is full of adventure, fearless, and a touch of adhd. I tend to have a scatter brain and often wade in where only fools enter. Tigger is never alone and has loyal friends who band together. I am lucky enough through my online interactions to have found my own piglet, Pooh and owl. And the Sub – no surprises there!! At heart and in behaviours I am submissive. A feminist too and I am ok with that. Apparently my ‘mini-domme’ attempts make others giggle. This would surprise my students – I am a university professor – were they ever to know. And of course they won’t.

My story as anonymous ‘tiggersub’ and ‘tiggs’ of 100AcreSub is one that might resonate with a few of you. It started as simply a safe vehicle to engage in conversations with bloggers I had stalked for a year (looks sheepishly at Marie) but soon morphed into something more. Tiggs became a genuine reflection of my identity – albeit foregrounding my sexuality. This transition from email address to identity has brought me friends and lovers. Lessons learnt and experiences embraced too. Of the lessons learnt, beware the ‘Tru Dom’ and ‘real Sub’ is perhaps the most important. Including to beware these ‘figures’ in myself and instead prioritise understanding even if I don’t agree. And of the lovers, well now I live with my SexyBeast and arborist – also known as SonnyLumiere. I met first Sonny as Tiggs. We have built our lives and loves and kinks together. My Avi reflects that element of my life.

I hope this brief intro to me encourages you to have faith in my place on this jury.
