Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
(New Yorker staying in DC for the nights of 3/31 and 4/1.
Interested in meeting interesting dinner companions. More may be
possible but is by no means expected.)
This is not your typical headless profile. It's anonymous because
it makes it much easier to be open and direct about my preferences.
I am actually particularly interested in substantial, serious
relationships; it's just that this makes it easier to sort out some
compatibility factors I find essential.
I'm not looking for a one night stand, though I am open to finding
play partners. I am looking for one nightstand, as my bed needs a
second one, but that really isn't relevant at all here.
On those compatibility factors - I'm kinky and non-monogamous. The
first is important but not essential; the second is non-negotiable,
though I am not necessarily wedded to a particular style of poly. I
do not have a primary partner. I am open to the idea of one, though
I have historically been bad at relationships with people who
*need* a specific level of commitment off the bat; I prefer
relationships that develop organically to a comfortable level for
As far as kink, hypermasculine presentation notwithstanding, I am
primarily submissive, though I am a switch. The best chemistry I
have tends to be with a dominant partner who is firm about taking
what she wants; I have also had excellent chemistry with
submissives and switches who can clearly articulate their
preferences and boundaries. Outside the bedroom, I prefer a
relationship with a fairly equal power balance.
I'm tall, handsome, sophisticated, funny, a nerdy, and surprisingly
good on paper, for what self-serving statements on a faceless
profile are worth. I'm also probably one of the only men on here
who rounded his height down. I could be described as a sex-positive
If you're interested, please send me a message or IM me - I don't
really approach women with this profile. I'm sure y'all have enough
unwanted attention to deal with as is. I prefer to date or play
mostly with people who have a clear sense of what they want. But if
you're new or just curious, feel encouraged to message me; I've
helped a number of people navigate their way into kink
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Exploring. I feel there are so many more places to go, things to
do, and things to have done to me. Also, working a lot, and cooking
all the things.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
The fact that I have no head. That photo isn't cropped.
Seriously, probably my size. I'm a big guy with a fairly commanding
presence, so that's probably what people notice first.
I am told that I - and this profile - present as somewhat
hypermasculine. That's not entirely false, but it is a very long
way from a complete picture of me.

[This has been redacted to prevent comparison with any other
profiles I may or may not have. I tend to enjoy fiction with richly
developed and believable characters. My taste runs to
sci-fi/fantasy; I'm a nerd but not on the hardcore end of the
spectrum. Curiously, I've found I tend to get along well with
people who appreciate the Venture Brothers.]
I'll leave it with this quote:
"When I was 5, my teacher asked me what I wanted to do in life. I
said, 'Be happy.' My teacher told me I didn't understand the
question; I told her she didn't understand life."
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. The interweb?
2. My Kindle
4. Smart phone.
5. Gym membership
6. Friends, family, and the like.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Why I will get no interesting messages in weeks, then get five in
two days. I guess it's a good problem to have.
The use of the "seeing someone" status. If you're in a closed
monogamous relationship, why are you on a dating site? If you're
actually looking for new partners, why not use "available?" If
someone would care to explain this to me, I'd like to understand it
better. I won't even ask why you're checking out headless torso
profiles despite the fact that you're "seeing someone."
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I only do it missionary. With the lights off. Through a hole in the
Someone messaged me on this profile and told me it had inspired her
to be more proactive in seeking out what she really wanted. That
made my day.
A friend of mine said, "When I first saw your profile, I figured
you were headless because you didn't have a pretty face." So, at
her suggestion, I am clarifying that I do indeed have a pretty
face. I'd just rather coworkers or acquaintances of mine not
associate that face with this profile.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You've read this profile and are interested. Though, while I am
generally happy to talk about kink and provide advice for getting
into it, I'm not really interested in an inexperienced submissive
play partner. If there's also a lot of compatibility, that's a
I am not turned off by explicit messages or personal questions up
front, as long as they are included within complete, grammatical
sentences with proper spelling.
Your chance of getting a response is much higher if you have some
kind of straightforward full-body pic. I've had some... unfortunate
experiences meeting people who did not, and I would prefer not to
have more of such. (Just to clarify in response to feedback: I am
attracted to many different body types; I just need to know what
someone looks like before I know if I'll be attracted to her, and
that's something I like to figure out before meeting, for the
benefit of everyone involved.)
Intelligence and intellectual curiosity are huge pluses, if not
I'm generally much more likely to respond to messages that have
content. I get a lot of "ur hot" type messages, which I will
generally not respond to. If you're listed as monogamous or have
answered that you will not consider open relationships, you might
want to say something about that in your message. I understand some
women will be less than honest about that due to the abysmal,
negotiation-style tactical dishonesty that is so prevalent in
dating, so if it's not quite accurate, enlighten me.
I don't require (or even necessarily prefer) both D and s in the
same partner, necessarily, so if you're really a sub, it's OK, you
don't need to try selling your dominant side to attract my
interest. Though if you do actually have one, that's nice to know.
