Dear Portia

Advice to the Lovelorn, the Dispossessed and the Deeply Disgruntled

The Old Portia!

The New Portia!

There are no coincidences! Just as Caitlyn Jenner has revealed her stunning new persona (and get that exquisite chassis), I can now reveal my true self. No more hidden by a scruffy exterior, enclosed in a miasma of nameless mind altering substances.  Early this year, friends threw me an uncomfortable party. I was carted off to a spa across the pond in an instant, for cataclysmic changes. The mob had found “Clean and Decent” online, a two-for one offer- rehab, plus a surgical makeover. Yes, dear ones, rebirth is painful, but take a look at me now! 

My new squeeze, Roger, my personal trainer at the spa, became so much more to me on a host of levels. One polite Brit term for lovemaking is to ‘roger,’ as in Roger Moore. Geddit?? Spa details are classified; sorry. It’s an all celebrity clientele. The food was exquisite. The décor was opulent. Oh and the “Optimizers” (e.g. staff), a subtle blend of Dr. Phil meets Kim Kardashian and HRH Princess Margaret says it all—and  this from the Brits?

I was massaged mentally and physically until my pristine beauty shone through that hideous crustiness build up. A nip here, a tuck there, a bit of exercise, plus some meaningful repartee with other clients; the days flew by.

Yes, Dear Reader, I have expanded my vistas. I invite you to join with me.  The “old” Portia might have eschewed questions about fashion, body enhancements, general tips on seduction and the like, but no more!  Here is my personal email, (This email address is being protected from spambots.

Ta Ta for now!

Transparently Yours,

Howdy! I know this is kinda off topic but I was
wondering which blog platform are you using for this site?
I'm getting sick and tired of Wordpress because I've had problems with hackers
and I'm looking at alternatives for another platform. I would be
fantastic if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.
