Long indulgences

You might have noticed I have a new type of booking, the long indulgent relaxation booking. I’ll explain here in more detail what it is.

I’m avoiding using the word massage as much as possible so there is no confusing it with a therapeutic massage, a sports massage or a rub and tug. It has elements of a relaxation massage and a rub and tug but it is completely different and stands alone.

So what is it then? It is all about sensation play. If you are familiar with the term in the BDSM/kink context you are heading in the right direction but for all my vanilla friends please don’t let talk of BDSM scare you, it is the most delicious erotic thing (I should write something on how BDSM is not always synonymous with pain but that is another thing for another day). In fact this version of sensation play is on the complete opposite end of the spectrum and uses extremely pleasurable sensations to take you into a euphoric state. Some of your senses I will calm, you will be blindfolded, restrained and wearing noise isolating headphones* but your sense of touch and eroticism will be increased and relaxed, over and over again. I will play with your skin and genitals like an angel playing a harp until eventually, finally I will let you reach a euphoric release.

It is very slow and delicious, you will lose all sense of time and the world will melt away. If you are familiar with the concept of subspace in BDSM (not maths! that’s a different subspace!) this will invoke a similar but perhaps lighter feeling of mental separation. It may take you a little while to be able to come back into this world and open your eyes, so I will be there to help.

To answer a few common questions it can’t be done in less than 2 hours because rushing would completely undermine the experience and no I still can’t give a therapeutic massage and fix your gammy hamstrings 🙂

Outcalls preferred

Just a quick note to say outcalls are now my preference in Hobart and so I have reduced my Hobart outcall rates a little. I’ll need a minimum of 24 hours notice for incalls.

Update: I still enjoy outcalls but my rates are now back to being the same as incalls

Special offer

I have special offers from time to time, while I was in Melbourne I had a really fun one. So that Hobart and Tasmania don’t miss out here is a locally based one.

If you would like a lovely companion to either Saffire or Pumphouse Point pay for 1-2 hours and my travel and meals and I will throw in a social overnight for free.

Clients guide to… Paying Corrine with Bitcoin

Disclaimer PLEASE BE VERY CAREFUL WITH YOUR MONEY AND TRANSACTIONS. THIS ADVICE IS GENERAL IN NATURE AND IS NOT LEGAL OR FINANCIAL ADVICE. This is also known as Corrine is covering her arse and urging you to be responsible for your own.

I highly advise reading https://bitcoin.org/en/you-need-to-know at a minimum. Also understand there are risks associated with using Bitcoin. Further information at https://www.weusecoins.com/en/questions/ in particular the Security https://www.weusecoins.com/en/questions/#security and disadvantages https://www.weusecoins.com/en/questions/#what-are-the-disadvantages-of-bitcoin sections

What is Bitcoin

Bitcoin is a type of currency that is virtual, you might hear it called cryptocurrency. Think of it as internet money. You can’t hold it in your hand or stuff it under your actual mattress but it works in stores and online on sites that are set up to take Bitcoin like any other money.

“Bitcoin is a digital currency, meaning it’s money controlled and stored entirely by computers spread across the internet” http://www.wired.com/2013/11/bitcoin-survival-guide/

“Bitcoin isn’t just a currency, like dollars or euros or yen. It’s a way of making payments, like PayPal or the Visa credit card network. It lets you hold money, but it also lets you spend it and trade it and move it from place to place, almost as cheaply and easily as you’d send an email.” http://www.wired.com/2013/11/bitcoin-survival-guide/

Getting bitcoin

Opening a Bitcoin account

If you own Bitcoins you will have a private key which is like an weird looking internet address that’s a register of your bitcoins. You’ll need a program called a wallet to manage your private keys and bitcoins. A wallet is like a Bitcoin bank account

“As with paper money, you can save Bitcoins in a wallet, which stores the public and private keys needed to identify the Bitcoins and execute a transaction. These can be digital wallets that exist in secure cloud environments or on a computer, or they can take physical form. If a wallet is hacked or you lose your private Bitcoin key, you no longer have access to that Bitcoin. Possession of the public address and private key amounts to possession of the Bitcoin.” http://venturebeat.com/2014/02/17/bitcoin-for-idiots-an-introductory-guide/

There are many excellent wallets for smartphones, desktops and web access. For a good list try https://bitcoin.org/en/choose-your-wallet

I’m going to suggest for desktops/web applications (note that web based may potentially be less secure)

and for smartphones

but check out the options and find something you are comfortable with. And as always READ THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS! I haven’t gone over all of them yet and they may change.

Buying bitcoin

Generally speaking Bitcoin wallets will let you transfer money from your bank account to your wallet. Note that to use your wallet with a bank account you will most likely need to meet identity verification requirement https://support.coinjar.com/hc/en-us/articles/202909955-Verifying-your-identity for example, essentially government issued photo ID and a statement showing your full name and current residential address and it could take a few days to process. My personal preference for ease of use in Australia is Coinjar. If you don’t want to do this see below for buying bitcoin with cash.

Cash options

It is possible to buy Bitcoins without a bank account or without linking your wallet to a bank account. WARNING! Be careful with who you trade with. Check reputations and avoid scams.

Bitcoin Australia https://www.coinloft.com.au/ take payments for bitcoin by creating an order online and then doing an over the counter bank deposit at any Commonwealth, ANZ, Westpac or NAB bank branch.This has proven to be a useful option.

Local bitcoins https://localbitcoins.com/ is a marketplace for trading bitcoins locally for cash or online payments of your choice, you can search by location and see who will accept cash or over the counter bank deposit. Please read https://localbitcoins.com/guides/security for security information.

Bitcoin ATM’s exist as well but there are not many of them. Try http://abatech.com.au/ (requires government ID even for cash) and http://coinatmradar.com/ or http://www.bitrocket.co for an ATM search.

Paying with Bitcoin

When you make a booking you can request to pay in Bitcoin in advance or on arrival, and if I am touring and asking for deposits you can pay using Bitcoin for this too (or I have a very easy BPay option for deposits, please don’t feel obligated to use Bitcoin). If you are paying in advance or paying a deposit I will send a QR code and a wallet address by email, SMS or Twitter DM. QR codes (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/QR_code) can be easily scanned by mobile apps or you can use the wallet address directly with your wallet application. If you are paying on arrival having a smartphone based wallet that can scan a QR Code will be simplest. (For anyone interested in the nuts and bolts I would prefer 4-6 confirmations for payments on arrival however this should be completed by the completion of the booking.)

Sending a Bitcoin Payment

To send a Bitcoin payment, the first thing you will want to do is open your wallet. There are many different Bitcoin wallets out there today, so we’ll stay way from the specifics of where you can find each button during the “send payment” process. There should be a tab for sending payments in your wallet, so navigate to that section of your wallet to begin. Once you’re in the “send” section of your wallet, you will be asked to provide a Bitcoin address and an amount. If your friend has sent you a Bitcoin address, you can simply copy and paste it into the address box. Before entering the amount for the payment, make sure to check the unit name next to the box. Some wallets will use full bitcoins, while others can use bits or millibits. Most online wallets will allow you to enter an amount in US dollars or euros if needed, so don’t hesitate to use that feature as well. Once you’ve entered the required info into the two boxes, you can then send the payment. http://bitcoin.cex.io/how-to-pay-with-bitcoins/

QR Codes

Instead of typing in a long Bitcoin address, you can also use QR codes to speed up the process. When you scan a QR code with your smartphone, the details of a transaction will instantly be placed into the various “send” fields of your Bitcoin wallet. This is especially useful when shopping with your smartphone. While you’re going through the checkout process, a QR code will usually be displayed on your computer or a merchant’s POS device. All you have to do is scan the QR code and press “send” to complete the payment. http://bitcoin.cex.io/how-to-pay-with-bitcoins/

Evolving to simplicity

You all know how I love a good podcast 🙂 Radiolab did a GREAT episode recently that has recently struck a chord with me called Shrink. It is a really interesting discussion on new viruses (biological not the electronic type), that may not be viruses, and why they haven’t been found before. But even more interesting, to me, is that these new viruses are giving rise to a theory that evolution may go backwards. That is to evolve towards simplicity as well as evolving towards complexity. I love this idea because in my own life I have been evolving towards simplicity in a fashion. Simpler life, less stress, focusing only on a few things and it’s great that science agrees with me!

Ashley Madison hack

If you hadn’t heard of Ashley Madison (AM) before this week you most likely would have by now. (If you really don’t know it is a dating website for married people looking to have an affair, and that is how it is marketed. It has been in the news because it’s customer database has been hacked and released after the hackers demands weren’t met).

A few thoughts… (I’m being a poor blogger and not linking to sources and references. Motherboard, Vice, The Verge, Boing Boing, Gizmodo, practically every blog/newspaper/opinion writer has written in detail, let Google be your friend)

Customers names, emails, credit card details, sexual preferences were released. It was possible to pay AM a small fee to have your profile removed, however it was not deleted from their database and was still leaked. NEVER use your real name, work email, government email, credit card on a website that you would now, or ever, not want to be made public. And never trust that things will be removed, they won’t. Use a fake email and prepaid anonymous debit card at a minimum.

If you have searched the data for email addresses of friends, family, Barak Obama, whoever keep in mind that AM did not require validation of email addresses on sign up. This means that anyone could sign up using anyone else’s email address without their knowledge.

There was actually TWO websites owned by the same company that were hacked, AM and Established Gentlemen. A third site owned by them was not. The unhacked site was called Couger Life, aimed at finding mature laydeez. Established Gentlemen is essentially a sugar daddy site and was of more concern to the hackers than AM because they felt it was a front for “prostitution/trafficking”. NEVER assume that nerds, geeks, hackers will not have your free choice in their interests and they won’t fall into the sex with benefits must be trafficking mythology. And ALWAYS assume that nerds, geeks and hackers (I’m lazily lumping them in together but they are not necessarily equivalent terms) are incredibly smart and talented.

How I spend my time

I’ve been going through my numbers and decided to put together something that gives an idea of what goes into an average booking from my perspective. Mainly because I like playing with numbers and partly so I have something to point to when I am told I have an easy job and it’s easy money 🙂

This graphic is to scale and gives an idea of the length of time I spend on things to make the average booking happen.

Average booking time

I’m back

I’m back! I had a little holiday, clear in the opposite side of the globe with a very dear friend. Disconnected, recharged and fed my soul some very fine food. I feel a million dollars now! Apart from my stomach, which is still jetlagged and makes me get up at 3am and feed it toast before it lets me sleep again!

Holidays

It’s holiday time! Hobart I’ll be back in a couple of weeks.

In the meantime here’s my international travel bucket list. It’s not getting any shorter!

  • North Korea
  • Iran, Turkmenistan, Khazakastan, Uzbekistan
  • Oman and Yemen (although not the latter just at the moment!)
  • Siberia
  • Iceland
  • Vietnam (how have I not been here??)
  • Serbia/Croatia

South America I need to add but this would do for the time being 🙂

Addendum: it has be pointed out to me I aspire to travel to some not usual places. This is true. Last weekends newspaper had a piece that quoted Bill Bryson on the childlike wonder of being somewhere where you are ignorant of almost everything and I like it. Not only do I try to push my boundaries and expand my knowledge but I cut out a lot of what makes me an adult, which makes me notice what I really value about myself when I come back.

Suddenly you are five years old again.

You can’t read anything, you only have a rudimentary sense of how things work, you can’t even reliably cross a street without endangering your life.

Your whole existence becomes a series of interesting guesses.

Members site

Exciting news! Time to put your party pants on people. I have a new website!! This one is still the main place for all things Corrine, the new one is a members site.  On it there will be exclusive photos, advance notice of tours before I advertise them, messaging, videos, and (drum roll) LIVE WEBCAM SHOWS! You may know Corrine started out camming* and I’m so excited to be able to go back to it in my own space and on my own terms. If you have dived into the webcam world you’ll know it’s generally based on a $/minute or tips payment system which I find incredibly tedious and not at all conducive to relaxing seduction. My site will be a paid membership, so you can join in the fun when you feel like it for as long as you like. If you can’t make it to a live show they will be recorded (only my camera is recorded, I can’t see yours) so you can watch it later. The content will be a wide range from chatty to sexy to fetish.

Shut up woman and tell us the address?? Haha ok it’s www.thelovely.me

Some helpful tips:

  • Payment is by credit card. If this worries you (and I understand!) the best option is to buy a single use Visa card from Woolworths or a reloadable Visa from Woolworths or Australia Post. All of these options let you load cash onto a credit card in their stores. The single use ones are a one time purchase; buy it, put an amount of money on it, and when you have spent all that money it is dead. The reloadable versions allow you to go back to any of their stores and use cash or another card to add more credit. If you want you can log in online and register them to allow you to transfer money from your bank account to the card. I highly recommend using these cards for any kind of online shopping anyway. If my mum can work them out so can you 🙂
  • If you use your normal accounts it will show on your statement as something like ‘Centro Services’ or ‘centrobill.com’ certainly nothing adult.
  • Membership is a recurring monthly payment, if you take advantage of my cheap introduction price it will revert to a monthly payment. You can cancel at any time, just scroll to the very bottom of my site, select billing support and this will bring up a page with a big button to cancel membership.
  • If you get stuck with anything on the website the support team are FANTASTIC! (I’ve used them several times myself) or you can ask me and I’ll see what I can do.
