Blog Description

This is really a place for me to express my kinky side to all of those that would like to partake in it. Hopefully, it gives anyone in similar situations inspiration and drive to make things happen.

I know what it was like to feel different and not to have people nearby to talk to about some of it, but eventually you encounter those that help you out and educate you on the world you want to explore. So play safe!

Moving on (IML 2014 part 1)

I have been absent for such a long time. I don't think I had really been keeping up for a number of reasons, but after collecting myself for a while, I have decided that I need to keep up with this blog as I originally intended for it to serve as both outreach for those from similar vast nothingness as well as a personal (kinky) memoir.

So I promised an update on IML and this is long overdue.

I am going to follow the usual means of my IML updates and make this a multiparter, so sorry for that in advance. :)

So this year was a big deal, it was my first year going it alone. In the previous years I had been going with cuffsman10, even that very first year when I was still sort of with my ex-gf (shocker for those that didn't back-read!) It was a lot of the same in the sense of finding a place to stay (great roommate from last year who had a spot for me, thanks subboy951!), finding a time to get down and park/store my car (oh the weary traveler issues in a metropolitan area;parking!), and then make sure I take what gear/clothes/food/snacks/drinks/etc. I needed for the weekend away as well.

First night I geared up and hit the lobby, chatting with a variety of people after meeting my roommates for the weekend (subboy951, Gaurence, and lthrguyDC86). I ended up talking to a few new people as well as reconnecting with a buddy Jonathon Switch. It was a great night and although I didn't get into any "trouble" like a bunch of people do at IML, I was very happy with how the night passed!

Day two was a matter of reconnecting with Jonathon and some of his buddies, catching brunch, and then kind of doing my own thing. I have seen the city after this many visits, so I focused on taking a gym break and then gearing up to hit the leather mart. I visited the usual hang outs, checked out the various rubber gear, and dropped by my favorite leather shop, Twin Cities Leather (& Latte). I ran into a variety of people and eventually the night progressed again with a few costume changes until I made it to the Chicago Rubbermen meet up where I mingled into out of town friends with an in town friend. It was a great time and I met a very interesting guy, with a sexy accent and everything...(well, I think there were at least 2-3 sexy accents, but this one was a focus for the weekend.)

Eventually, hit the gear-blast party initially in some football gear, hoping to run into a West-coast buddy, who was damn near impossible to find! In the middle of this I decided that football pads, although super hot, are definitely cumbersome in tight spaces when you don't want to bump people or drinks. I retired the pads and  for the evening (much to my West-coast buddies chagrin.) I ended up finding him maybe 50 minutes afterwards, and I apologized for being less geared, and he did for not being find-able. Oh and I also ran into a storm trooper, which was super awesome! (And a coworker asked if people cosplayed at these things!)

Waiting for feedback...and some updates!

I have been busy with work, but I have also been waiting for some feedback for a few IML stories...

for now I will probably just come back to those.

In other news, I competed for the Mr. Midwest Rubber title this past weekend, and unfortunately took 1st runner up. The guy that won, Joe Spaceman, is a great competitor and I wish him the best this year at MIR! I really hope he ends up getting more travel funds for his rubbery journey, and was lucky enough to take part in a raffle the day after the contest to get some goodies including a pass for MIR this year!

Not only that, I have pretty much be pulled into volunteering this year (not that I wasn't already going to!), so I have that to look forward to as well!

And for even trying to compete, or maybe because I did well enough, I also got passes for the Iowa Leather Weekend (which is from October 10-12th in Des Moines) so I now need to plan some hotel stays or find some buddies to have roommates for that as well!

More updates to come!

If you read this far you get to see some shots of me competing in my rubber jock...
