Yes. that’s exactly how I felt! I was searching for a lego minotaur fig when I stumbled upon Minotaur erotica for the first time. The first story wasn’t really my thing. The second sort of was. And I’ll be sure to discuss my wants and interests the next time I find myself in a labyrinth with a bunch of Minotaurs…
I just remembered I was going to do a drawing. you said something hilarious when we were talking about this a few weeks ago. shoot. that’s not going to happen tonight. SOON.
this concludes Minotaur erotica bookclub. for now.
wait, there’s a maze at the exit?? THERE’S A MAZE?? THAT’S AMAZING, I’D HEARD THE FRIEND ZONE WAS HARD TO GET OUT OF BUT I NEVER DREAMED IT’D BE FOR SUCH AN AWESOME REASON

It’s so beautiful out.
the snow and stars are glittering.
walking the groomed neighborhood sidewalks is
like walking in a SNOW MAZE.
I want to walk all night.
I mean, I’m in bed because I’m exhausted but, if you come over I’ll totally search for the MINOTAUR with you.
how to get maximum enjoyment of the film Minotaur:
- come to my house
- put the DVD in the player
- immediately leave the room
- get far enough away that we can just barely hear the film.
- I will play the best gifs from the film while we build a maze
- we can act out our own film with minotaur and Tom Hardy toys
- or you can quietly read while I make waffles
- get drunk eat waffles
- I will yell “MINOTAUR!!!!!!!!!!!!!” a lot. don’t be alarmed.
Longleat Hedge Maze at Longleat House (via Atlas Obscura).
The longest hedge maze in the world, and to quote Atlas Obscura’s description:F**k Downton Abbey, what is the upstairs/downstairs situation like at this house? PUNS ENCOURAGED AS ANSWERS. OF COURSE.The land is currently owned by the 7th Marquess of Bath, Alexander Thynn, known primarily for his eccentric lifestyle, numerous mistresses, and the erotic murals he has painted all over the residential portion of the house. He is also a great lover of mazes, and has added the hedge maze, as well as three other smaller garden mazes: the Lunar labyrinth, the Sun Maze, King Arthur’s maze, and the Love Labyrinth.
Just a guess, but we bet the overlap between Obscuraphiles and Downton Abbey fans is not insubstantial…
Visit the Longleat House Hedge Maze on Atlas Obscura!
As kids, me and my brothers would BEG to visit Longleat on summer vacations to visit the grandparents. The house was gloomy and we were too young to appreciate the art but damn did they have a fine drive thru zoo and maze!

guy on TV: well as an actor that has actually been in a movie called Minotaur…
me: *gasp* I’ve seen a movie called Minotaur… IS THAT CANDYMAN? *~google~* IT IS CANDYMAN! He was in Minotaur! UGH IT’S JUST TERRIBLE. The best way to watch it is from an adjacent room. hahahahaha.*crumple in laughter* It’s so awful. It’s a favorite. I love it. I watched it because Tom Hardy is in it. *wipes away tears*. Tony Todd is a really lovely pumpkin carving judge.
me: OHMAN. this is the best thing that has happened in awhile. I needed this. UGH. this has been a really good laugh. I’m going to go now. Giggle about minotaurs elsewhere.
