I wish somebody would have told me babe
Some day, these will be the good old days
All the love you won’t forget
And all these reckless nights you won’t regret
Someday soon, your whole life’s gonna change
You’ll miss the magic of these good old days
More and more I am nostalgic for old Tumblr. I loved the platform for the ability to network with others, upload NSFW photos and perv free porn.
Maintaining a secret porn blog was just fun. Pure and simple.
I am less and less enchanted with the alternatives to Tumblr as they all exist in isolation and booty call daydreams. You can’t really chat and share and the freedom of anonymity is gone. Even this blog is me talking to myself.
Tumblr was fun with its silly themes: jean porn Monday, topless Tuesday, thong Thursday, etc. It took the best from of our children’s daycare but for naughty adults.
There were friendships made and nurtured, to the point I understood completely why my friend was telling me today he was hesitant to ask his wife to a swanky sex club as I recalled she didn’t like the effort put forth by patrons at the last one they attended. I could commiserate as I often don’t like the return on my effort.
These aren’t conversations you have at work or among your vanilla friends but with people that routinely interacted with no expectation of sex in return. Just two people who like porn and happen to enjoy shooting the breeze with the elephant of “I wonder what she looks like naked” removed from the room.
I still talk to at least six people regularly from Tumblr, they are the good I took away from a crap decision to censor the platform.
But in the end, we didn’t really know what we had until it was taken away…
