Bondage, Dominance, Submission, and Sadomasochism: Why S&M will never go mainstream. – Slate Magazine

4 03 2013

I am seeing more and more articles about S&M in mainstream media. Here is one from Slate. I’m going to have to read it more than once to digest it, but I am not liking the flavor so far. Still he has some major points right, even if it is a bitter pill.

Masters: Study Slavery

7 10 2010

OK, this is going to be a short post. I wanted to talk about something for the Masters today.  We have to know a lot of stuff to be good at what we do. But I think that one of the things that is often ignored is the importance of a Master of knowing what is good service.

I would implore you to read all that you can about the subject. Become an expert on what it takes to serve. Know the mind set. Frankly, the mindset is alien to me, but I have learned over the years to appreciate it and to know what it takes to be a good one.

Remember to buy the slave book and read them first, before you hand them to your slave. It is just as important to know these things first as it is to know the other more Masterly topics.

Anyway,  that is my thought for today.

Graydancer’s Ropecast

10 06 2009

Ok, sometimes I am late to the party. I only learned of Graydancer’s Ropecast reciently by following John Baku (FetLife‘s founder) on twitter.  He will be on it later this month (it appears that there is some difficulty in recording it, so I can’t give you a date).

So, Ropecast has been in existance since 2007 (and here I thought I was up on podcasting, lol). I plan on adding it to my ipod. I will try to give you a report on what up with it.

And I really look forward to hearing what John has to say.

Another Sad Death Due to Unsafe BDSM Practices

7 04 2008

I have always tried to espouse safety when partaking S&M behavior.  No matter how much pleasure we receive from an act, we must stop before we harm the ones we love or ourselves. We have too may people depending upon ourselves.

This brings us to the latest tale of a father who died from sadomasochistic behaviors.

A father-of-three who had a fetish for bondage and sado-masochism, died after inhaling chloroform through a biological warfare mask, an inquest heard today.

Christopher Harris from Newport, South Wales, was found dead in the bedroom of his home on the city’s Cardiff Road with the Soviet Union military issue mask still attached on October 28 last year.

Ok, here is the truth. Never play by yourself. This is the main way people die doing what it is that we do. If your a dominant NEVER LEAVE YOUR SUB ALONE during a scene.  That is all you have to remember.
