Best of: the Blog

Smokin'Best of: the BlogPortland, OR – On September 29th of 2007 I posted my first entry to this blog. It was a quick and not-so-dirty little post coinciding with the release of Fear and my public foray into the adult industry. The Blog has evolved over the past couple years. It is at times promotional; documenting shoots, current projects and the latest releases. At other times my blog is more reflective and personal. My blog has also served as a forum for my essays and thoughts on community and what I like to call this thing of ours meaning queer leather/fetish and BDSM. On December 30th, Unzipped awarded an Unzippy to my blog as Most Informational (while still being hot) Blog. After learning of the award I got to thinking about the past year and decided to indentify ten entries that I believe best represent my contributions to the blogosphere. Now, for my “best of: the Blog’ list for 2009… Read the rest of this entry »

Leather Dance in Tampa at the Ybor Eagle

Smokin'Leather Dance in Tampa at the Ybor EagleSeattle, WA – This weekend I’m heading to Florida. You can join me at the Ybor Eagle in Tampa on Sunday September 6th for Tampa Bay’s first ever gay leather dance. This should be a great opportunity for fetish/Sm players in the region to congregate and meet each other. I know I’m looking forward to learning more about the local scene from players in the area. I’ll be there with rope in hand to do some impromptu rigging and a copy of each of the first two releases in the Rough line of fetish/Sm features from Titan Media to give away. DJ Greg Anderson will be spinning, and the bar is offering one-dollar drinks until midnight for all those in leather. The Ybor Eagle is located at 1909 North 15th Street in Ybor City, Tampa. Doors open at 9pm to all those 18 and over with proper identification.

Smokin'Sextanza Twitter ContestSeattle, WA – Tonight is Sextanza, the monthly fetish/kink party, at the Re-bar sponsored by Scott Paul Designs and LeatherPost with DJ Sweet Chris Bell and DJ FauxFaux spinning funky electro house, rock, funk, and mash-up. I know that Everett from LeatherPost, Scott Paul and photographer, Redwoodsnaps, have been working hard to make this the night for all you kinky fuckers here in Seattle and tonight promises to be a blast. With nearly all the boys in town for Blood Sweat & Fear this weekend, I know I’m planning on one hell of a good time. My boys Timmy, Chris Yosef, Derek da Silva, his boy JC, our pup Element and many of our friends will be bringing our own special brand of down-and-dirty from about ten to midnight.

If you are in Seattle, come down and enjoy the festivities, but if not you can still join the fun because I’m running a Twitter Contest in conjunction with Sextanza. Here’s how it goes… Read the rest of this entry »

Who’s a Good Puppy?

25 May 2009 9:59

Smokin'Who's a Good Puppy?Chicago, IL – The Titan crew spent its Sunday working and playing at the Titan/Priapebooth in the IML Leather Market. Now don’t get me wrong, working a booth in the market is work. For me, it meant answering a lot of questions about our IML release Folsom Flesh (“No, that’s not makeup on his ass. Those are blood blisters from the paddle”) and the new Rough line of fetish/Sm features I’m co-directing with Paul Wilde for Titan (“Copper wire wrapped around each nut and hooked to a crank generator [Giggle]”). It also meant stealing away brief moments to visit with friends from around the world and recruit players.

Honestly, I love performing but I get a little uncomfortable in large crowds. I don’t generally like people I don’t know getting in my space or touching me. It makes me irritable [read: dangerous]. That’s one of the reasons I like to play. A scene is kind of like theater; an invisible fourth wall exists allowing the audience to witness while providing an understood barrier. At least until someone from se-cu-ri-ty comes to shut you down.

Luckily, I had plenty of volunteers willing to help create a scene. Since we brought in our pup Element, who appears in Shock Treatment, the soon-to-be-released second feature of the new Rough line, I figured a little Sunday afternoon puppy play was in order. Director Brian Mills (pictured above) got into the action. Now, for a clip of some of the fun we had courtesy of Titan MediaRead the rest of this entry »
