Scylla and Charybdis looking north through the Strait of Messina
The illustration: Scylla and Charybdis were mythical sea monsters noted by Homer; later Greek tradition placed them on opposite sides of the Strait of Messina between Sicily and the Italian mainland. Scylla was rationalized as a rock shoal (described as a six-headed sea monster) on the Italian side of the strait and Charybdis was a whirlpool off the coast of Sicily. They were regarded as a sea hazard located close enough to each other that they posed an inescapable threat to passing sailors. Avoiding Charybdis meant passing too close to Scylla and vice versa. According to Homer, Odysseus was forced to choose which monster to confront while passing through the strait. He chose to pass by Scylla and lose only a few sailors, rather than risk the loss of his entire ship in the whirlpool.
The Charybdis: Yesterday Adolph took the girls and Alice and Chris (our male Gyn) and me on the Charybdis his 120 ft. yacht to look at the shoreline from the lake. There was wind the day before and four foot waves, but yesterday the wind was calm and the water relatively smooth. The water in the lake is amazingly clear and the lake is 22 miles long and 12 miles wide and the deepest point is 1,645 feet in Crystal bay on the California side in North East corner. We spent most of the day on the water with a wonderful seafood lunch of jumbo shrimp, king crab legs, drawn butter and beer! Seconds on the lips and forever on the hips! Sigh! While on the California side we stopped briefly at a casino for Alice to try her luck at Blackjack and after being down by $3,500 she rallied and ended up winning $7,200 and change and decided at that point to stop for the day.
Drysuit spontaneous abortion: On the way back we were passing by a neighboring estate and saw the owner’s daughter in a drysuit trying to clear the fouled propeller of their motorboat which had run through netting of some sort without taking the boat out of the water. Adolph stopped to help because he knew she was pregnant in her first trimester and shouldn’t be doing anything strenuous or even shallow diving. He said the baby was her step-brother’s and she hadn’t decided whether to terminate it, but would have to decide soon as she was due back at UNLV in less than two weeks. She waved then with cutters in hand dove again and then she inverted and her boots came to the surface and she couldn’t right herself. She was not wearing a buoyancy vest and had been depending on the air in her suit for buoyancy. We could see her doubled over struggling unable to get her chest above her legs and feet. And then she expelled her mouthpiece and it looked to me as though she was having severe cramps.
Adolph and Chris jumped in and got her head to the surface and added air to her suit but she wasn’t breathing and we got her around to the dive transom and pulled her on deck. Chris cleared her airway and gave her Artificial respiration and got her breathing again and she was moaning and doubled up with cramps and I knew she was spontaneously aborting. Willow and I opened the shoulder zipper of her drysuit and got the neck seal over her head then got the wrist seals over her hands and managed to pull her out of the rubber suit and found below the waist she was soaked with blood and was still hemorrhaging. We had already called 911 and pulled in to a nearby marina where an ambulance met us at the dock, but it was too late and she bled to death.
Adolph said she told him weeks ago that she had been on the extended cycle combined pill Seasonique (84 active 7 placebo with 0.15mg of levonorgestrel / 30mcg EE and 7 placebo tablets with10mcg EE) And had forgotten and was 2 days late starting a new pack so she was 9 days w/o a therapeutic level of hormones which caused her to ovulate and she used no back-up method for protection while a therapeutic hormone level was reestablished all the while having sex with her step-brother who is a 23 y/o grad student at UNLV.
Exquisite sex: After witnessing a tragedy like having the pregnant 19 y/o bleed out in front of us after a miscarriage I needed sex so badly I was almost panting with desire. I think it’s because healthy humans realize at moments like that how fleeting life is and there is a very strong need to experience the most intimate and fulfilling mutual experience between a man and woman to reaffirm being alive. Death or severe injury of people around me has always affected me that way and the few of my girlfriends who have been willing to talk about it say they are the same way. The others are too embarrassed to admit it. And in the few instances that I’ve had occasion to notice how my wards act after a tragedy occurs to a friend they are the same way, needing the reaffirmation of life and wellbeing through mind-blowing sex.
So it was normal after witnessing the neighbor’s death that we all needed our brains fucked out to take our minds off what we had seen. So with the aid of one of the men who had just come back from nine holes of golf and with twenty minutes of wonderfully placed thrusts I was tipped repeatedly into gasping, moaning, mewing, screaming ecstasy by one of Pirate’s best swordsmen after which I snuggled in his arms covered with the scent of his testosterone laced sweat to enjoy a nap in afterglow.
Alice plays the field: She is luxuriating in the differences between her different sex partners techniques sampling five a day; two in the morning, two after lunch and one to take to bed for the night. I’ve also found she has a taste for breast milk. After watching me empty my breasts with my Medela she offered to milk me as she enjoys the taste! Who knew? She nurses very gently but forcefully. She can develop a lot of suction and tonguing my nipples brings down my milk so quickly that if she is here much longer with our ANR I’m afraid she will increase my breast size which I need to avoid as that throws off my balance for dancing. After being milked I am extremely aroused and to release the pooled blood in my pelvis she inserts two fingers and caresses my G-spot until I find release and have a shuddering gasping orgasm then nap in her arms. She is a very considerate lover!
