Seattle, WA – Last year was all about rebuilding my personal training practice and my own fitness levels. This past spring I embarked on an aggressive and intense five month building cycle with one of primary clients who I knew would be an excellent partner in pushing it to the next level. It was a grueling and exhausting program but I must admit I’m thrilled with the results. I’m now weighing in at 185 pounds (84.1 kg) with approximately 9.7% body fat. It’s definitely the biggest and leanest I’ve ever been, so I decided it was time to document my progress and update my various profile images. I gave my photog buddy, Mike Graves, a call and this past Tuesday we got together at my place for a quick photo shoot in my training studio. You can check out the entire set after the jump...

Seattle, WA – While I don’t generally participate in the throw Back Thursday (#TBT) practice, I thought my contribution might be appropriate this week since it is Leather Pride Week here in Washington State. The photograph, taken by Malixe back in 2002, captures my run for Washington State Mr Leather thirteen years ago this weekend. Looking back, it’s no surprise the question on everyone’s lips the following days was, “Who is this twink that (sic) just won Washington State Mr Leather?” I can’t help but chuckle with a hint of pride as I think back to the year that followed. It was indeed a transformative experience ... ...More After the Jump »
Seattle, WA – The time has come once again. This week is Washington State Leather Pride Week (photo from 2014 courtesy of Malixe Photography).

Seattle, WA – A couple days ago the 2015 Grabby Award Nominations were posted to the Grabby’s website. Although I began my hiatus from the industry in January of 2014, the content and features produced toward the end of 2013 didn’t street (or get released) until after the beginning of 2014 thereby making them eligible for this year’s Grabbys. Among the four-hundred-thirty-plus nominees in twenty-nine categories, our cast and crew at Warehouse Kinks were nominated in the Best Fetish Movie Category. ...More After the Jump »
Seattle, WA – Well, I’ve finally gotten around to updating the site and re-launching the blog. You’ll notice I’ve tried to encapsulate the happenings of the past three years in the posts below, in addition to updating my filmography and personal bio. As some of you may know, I began a hiatus from the adult industry this past January to focus on rebuilding my personal training practice and my own fitness. This has also provided the additional opportunities to reengage with my local fetish/Sm community here in the beautiful Pacific Northwest. Hopefully this post will bring everyone up to speed on what’s been happening on my end this past year and serve as a nice re-launch to the blog. ...More After the Jump »
Seattle, WA – this Spring marked the release of three additional features I directed and occasionally appeared in for Falcon / Raging Stallion Studios. Those titles where Sounding 9, Show Me Your Hole, and Warehouse Fists.. It also brought our team’s 2014 Best Fetish Grabbys Awards win for the Trustees, staring Brian Bonds, Dirk Caber, Draven Torres, Jessie Colter, Leo Forte, Preston Steel and Race Cooper. It was an excellent accolade to mark my seven years of work in the industry focused on documenting the best of contemporary gay male BDSM and fetish content. Since I did not attend, my pup, the ever entertaining Element Eclipse (pictured above) was able to accept the award and express our thanks to the Grabbys, the studio and everyone involved in the production on my behalf....More After the Jump »

Seattle, WA – Winter 2012 brought the release of Sounding 7: RAMROD which I co-directed with Chris Ward being released later in the winter. It is also around this time that our crew began shooting content for Raging Stallion's Fisting Central line and I began honing my camera skills. In the spring of 2012 FetishForce released what I would consider my most creative endeavor, Pony Up! which was shot here in Seattle on location at the Pony bar during the harshest snow storms of the previous winter. Even with all the challenges it still stands as one of my favorite production runs of all time, thanks to the cast of players and crew. It truly was a labor of love and the final feature reflects all that fact. Later that spring I attended the Grabby Awards in Chicago, IL and returned home with the Grabby for Best Duo for my scene with Adam Killian in the Other Side of Aspen VI. ...More After the Jump »

Seattle, WA – FetishForce is rallying in Chicago Memorial Day Weekend for IML and the Grabby Awards. This message summarizes and outlines our plan of action for Chicago, Thu 26 through Tue 31 May 2011. Since IML is a major event for our community, FetishForce has chosen the IML host hotel as our base of operations for the weekend. This will facilitate each of us enjoying the festivities of IML while visiting with our friends in the community in addition to engaging in our promotional efforts at the various Grabby events. As you all know this all co-insides with our DVD release of Industrial Encounters and my co-hosting of the 2011 Grabbys. I am thrilled by the crew I will have with me to 'Represent' our community of family and friends at these huge events. I know we are going to have an outstanding time. ...More After the Jump »
Seattle, WA – Recent medical research has raised hope of a possible new HIV prevention tool: Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP). The CDC has issued guidance telling doctors how to prescribe HIV antiretroviral medication to negative gay men. On Wednesday, April 27th, Aleksa Manila and I will be co-hosting a community forum presented by Gay City Health Project examining this issue. Our featured panelists will include: Dr Jared Baeten from the University of Washington School of Public Health; Jim Pickett from the AIDS Foundation of Chicago; Michael Weinstein of AIDS Healthcare Foundation; Austin Anderson from the Center for Multicultural Health; Fred Swanson representing Gay City Health Project; and, Darren Augenstein from SeattleMeds Pharmacy. The forum starts at 7pm in the Erickson Theater off Broadway (1524 Harvard Ave) and is free to attend. You can get more information at the Gay City website, watch a promotional clip and participate in an online survey of attitudes surrounding this issue. This will undoubtedly be a lively and informative forum. I do hope you'll join us if you're in Seattle.
Seattle, WA – Well, it's been nearly three months since I updated this blog, but it has been an extremely busy and productive three months. The project that has most consumed me during this period has been a movie entitled Industrial Encounters, my first feature directing for the Falcon / Raging Stallion family of studios and my solo directorial debut. I'm happy to report that I put the film to bed yesterday. Although I also wrote, performed in and edited this movie, I didn't do it alone. I was blessed with the help and support of many talented individuals through the process, reminding me that film making is a collaborative art. Now, for some much deserved recognitions, information regarding the upcoming release of Industrial Encounters and sneak peek at the trailer......More After the Jump »

Seattle, WA – There have been a few personal, professional and family issues which have demanded my attention over the course of the past several weeks that have prevented regular updates to this blog, but the time has come to catch you all up, starting with our latest release in the Rough line from Titan Media last month. As the name implies, the central theme for Kennel Master is Puppy Play, and no contemporary survey of BDSM play within the men's community could be complete without this unique form of Animal Role-Play. While there are many forms of Animal Role-Play in the vast world of BDSM, including canine, feline and equine, pup play is particularly prevalent in our current gay Leather scene. For a closer look at our documentation of this phenomenon... ...More After the Jump »
Seattle, WA – A couple weeks ago, Titan Media released the eighth installment in the Rough line of fetish/Sm features Paul Wilde and I are directing for the studio. When Paul and I discovered that our fifth in the Rough series, Pierced, would probably never be released on DVD (more on that when I write the book, lol), we were once again determined to capture what is essentially the rollercoaster ride created when a skilled top manipulates the hormonal responses in his or her bottom to create heightening waves of intense euphoria that build to a moment of catharsis. It's not an easy task... and it is as far from what is generally captured on screen in relation to BDSM as is genuine sexual connection between the performers in most pornography. Thanks to the incredible performances delivered by fellow TitanMen exclusive Tiber Wolfe, Cullen Cable, Adam Russo and Spencer Reed, BFF: Bound Flogged Fisted accomplishes that task with extreme ass-play, an intense impact scene, bondage, torment and the kind of aggressive fucking that is best described as rough sex.

Seattle, WA – Each year over the Labor Day weekend, Generic Leather Productions of Washington (GLPW), in conjunction with our sponsors and many volunteers, produces the Northwest Leather Weekend in Seattle. The highlight of this weekend is the Northwest Leather Sir/boy and Community Boot Black (NWLSb/CBB) competition, a feeder contest to the International Leather Sir/boy and International Community Boot Black (ILSb/ICBB) titles. Known as the "Players Titles" among BDSM practitioners, these contests, along with the other regional competitions, bring members of our community together from throughout those regions and across the continent. And with so many Dragons based in the Pacific Northwest, it should come as no surprise to learn that our local event is a major attraction to many of the brothers and sisters who comprise my leather family (photographed right courtesy of Malixe). Helping to host this event has always been a source of joy for me personally, but this year I was overwhelmed by a sense of pride inspired by my pup Element as he ran for Northwest Leather boy. ...More After the Jump »

Seattle, WA – Back in June while I was in Vancouver, I sat down with Ed Woody, a freelance writer and regular contributor to Xtra West. We chatted for a little over a hour for what became a fairly extensive interview. Our conversation covered a broad range of topics. We talk about all the travel I've been doing lately and the various events where I've presented. We discussed my educational and advocacy work around responsible BDSM play and safer sex. We also spoke at length about my work in the adult industry, the Rough line with Titan Media, BDSM play and this year's Grabbys. Other topics covered included the nature and expression of the polyamorous relationships that comprise my family and the differences between private play, sex on set and live performances. While much of the article was omitted in both the print and online versions of Xtra West, I'm posting the full version of the piece here with Ed Woody's permission......More After the Jump »

Titan Media released the seventh installment in the Rough line of fetish/Sm features I'm co-directing with Paul Wilde. Veteran Rough players, Tibor Wolfe, Adam Knox and Alessio Romero join me in Filthy Fuckers along with newcomers Sean Stavos and fellow TitanMen exclusive, Leo Alarcon to provide yet another glimpse into the sometimes dirty and nasty but always erotically charged experience that is contemporary play in the men’s fetish/Sm scene. Two of my favorite and most dynamic players, Tibor Wolfe and Alessio Romero deliver a spit slicked and piss soaked fist fucking scene that left me grabbing for the paper towels after reviewing the final edit at home. And I just can’t tier of watching Adam Knox have piggy sex; the man isn’t just beautiful, he wallows in his sexual energy. Paired with Sean Stavos, the two reveal the kind of raw sexual abandon and lust at the heart of a flip-fuck. As for my scene with Leo Alarcon, well... ...More After the Jump »
Seattle, WA – This past weekend I had the pleasure of heading up to Vancouver BC to help our friends at Priape celebrate the 5th anniversary of the opening of their store there on Davie Street. Of course it was also a good opportunity to reconnect with my boy Chris after the debacle that was the end of IML weekend in Chicago. Trust me, don't ask. Suffice to say, we needed a nice, quiet weekend together to center and ground. Although it was somewhat of a working weekend for me, I would have chosen to be at the events anyway and I'm always up for modeling hot new gear, saying a few words on the microphone or doing a little rigging to entertain the crowd. And the schedule permitted for plenty of down time with my boy. Truth is, Vancouver and Seattle are sister cities, at least in the eyes of my leather community. ...More After the Jump »

Seattle, WA – This week, Titan Media released Criminal Intent. The intent might be criminal, but what ensues is more steamy man-sex than punishable offense in this, the third solo-directorial release by my buddy Paul Wilde. Paul masterfully captures three scenes inspired by the tension inherent in illegal activity with some of the hottest studs in the industry. First, Leo Alarcon, who you will soon see paired with me in the Rough line, teams up with Dario Beck to break into an up-scale home but soon distracts his partner in crime with a steamy flip fuck. In the second act, I stalk businessman Eric Glock, whom you might remember from the gun play scene in Rough 4: Abuse of Power, and attack him in an apparently successful attempt to punish the capitalist for his crimes against the people. Then in the finale, Will Parker, David Anthony and Alessio Romero, Rough players all, bring a wet and forceful take on the reversal of the power dynamic when thugs Alessio and David turn security guard Will into an object for sexual satisfaction. For a closer look at these fantasy scenarios courtesy of TitanMen.com, an excerpt from the Scene Breakdown for Criminal Intent, my personal take on the shoot and more.

Seattle, WA – Capturing this thing of ours on screen has become a personal passion that began on the set of Daddy Zeus' Soldiers of Misfortune three years ago; was refined through my involvement with the Folsom series of fetish films produced by TitanMen in conjunction with Folsom Street Fair and benefiting HIV/AIDS charities; and is currently being realized by performing in and co-directing the Rough line with Paul Wilde. I have been truly blessed by opportunities to work with some of the best players in the world and most talented individuals in the industry. Our collaborative efforts together have culminated in scenes with brutal realism and exceptional quality. My heart has been filled by the appreciation expressed by those who have found truth, beauty and inspiration in the films we made. I am humbled to be recognized as the 2010 Grabbys Performer of the Year and to share this distinction in a tie with Adam Killian.

Chicago, IL – First and foremost, I want to thank Tonya Winter and Winter Fetish for designing and fabricating our homage to the institution that was so instrumental to the development of my perversions in the formative years. I'm actually quite thrilled to be here at the Grabbys. When I went down to Palm Springs to do my first video for Daddy Zeus in 2007, I never envisioned I would develop such a passion for the work we do or the degree of acceptance I've received. I also want to thank the Grabbys for recognizing our efforts to capture contemporary BDSM play in the men's community through the Rough line with the nomination of Shock Treatment in the Best Extreme Fetish category. I truly believe we are accomplishing a service to my community of family and friends by realistically documenting this thing of ours. I am forever in debt to Bruce Cam for providing the opportunity for me to share my passion and the chance to collaborate with the best in the industry at Titan; Brian, Paul, I love you both.

Chicago, IL – Yesterday Titan Media released the sixth video in the Rough line of fetish/Sm features I'm co-directing with Paul Wilde. As should be evident through our previous releases, the Rough line documents contemporary BDSM play in the men's community, and no survey would be complete without a thorough examination of ass play. Anal Assault provides a glimpse into the variety this type of play offers with plenty of fucking and fistiing, toys, and even a fucking machine. And with a cast that includes Billy Berlin, Alessio Romero, Tibor Wolfe and Ethan Wolfe, we couldn't have asked for better players. The action is hard, heavy and real.

Seattle, WA - Three years ago this month, I flew down tp Palm Springs CA and performed in my first adult feature, Solders of Misfortune, directed by Daddy Zeus (pictured right) for Zeus Studios. Daddy Zeus became a legend in my mind when he began capturing authentic BDSM and fetish on video in the mid '90s. In features like Brute Force, Daddy Zeus paired accomplished and respected tops with hot bottoms in real scenes that depicted authentic play with a spirit and an edge that still speak to me as a player. Before Zeus, there was Christopher Rage, who masterfully captured this raw, animalistic sexuality on the fringe in the '80s; and of course, the great grand-daddy of BDSM art films who first caught the essence of the urban 'leatherman' in the '70s with LA Plays Itself, Fred Halsted. With my first film, I was excited to be making my contribution to the genre with my boy at the time, Derek da Silva, and we delivered a kick-ass-scene. A lot has happened since then....More After the Jump »
Palm Springs, CA – Yesterday, Titan Media released Slick Dogs, a dark yet colorful fetish production directed by my co-director for the Rough line, Paul Wilde, and featuring some of the hottest rubber gear I've ever seen, design by my dear friend and International Mr Rubber 2009, Stephane Donaldson. Paul's directorial style is clearly evident in this, his second solo directorial effort. Like Triage, Slick Dogs demonstrate both Paul's unique contribution and Titan's influence upon his work. He masterfully captures the essence of fetish with an understanding and focus on the connections it fosters that can only come from an experienced player and documents sexual content with a quintessentially Titan-esque signature. My scene partners, Dean Flynn and Billy Berlin round out a cast that includes Will Parker, Ethan Wolfe, Spencer Reed and JR Matthews in three rubber scenes taken directly from Stephane's fantasies.

Seattle, WA – When Paul Wilde and I first teamed up to begin production on the Rough line of fetish/Sm features, Titan Media Vice President, Keith Webb, sent us off with the words, "Shock us." I think it's safe to say we accomplished that mission with Pierced. Available exclusively through TitanMen Video on Demand, Pierced pushes the documentation of contemporary BDSM in the men's community to the very edge, capturing three of the most extreme scenes that incorporate play piercings as anchor points for bondage in a stunning exhibition of the scope and power of sadomasochistic play. Never before has this type of play been so thoroughly, comprehensively and beautifully captured on screen. Pierced is unlike anything you have seen before... ...More After the Jump »
Seattle, WA – Rising Starz, subtitled "Interviews with the Hottest New Stars of Gay Adult Video," by Owen Keehnen hit bookshelves yesterday. In 2005, Keehnen released the book Starz, a collection of sixty interviews with gay male performers in the adult industry. Starz was followed by the 2007 release of its sequel, More Starz, and then Ultimate Starz in 2009. In late December of 2008, I was contacted by Keehnen about the possibility of being interviewed for his fourth installment in this groundbreaking series, tentatively entitled Rising Starz. I agreed and began a conversation with Keehnen that lasted the better part of the six months immediately following my decision to partner with Titan and launch the Rough line as a co-director with Paul Wilde. Here's what Keehnen has to say about Rising Starz and my reflections. ...More After the Jump »
Seattle, WA – When I met my boy Derek da Silva nearly four years ago at my first Inferno in 2006, our connection was immediate and our relationship grew with a passion that was rare and unexpected. I collared Derek in May of 2007 on the set of our first 'art film' together, Soldiers of Misfortune, and we began our long distance, D/s relationship as Sir and boy. I can't help but smile when I look back upon that time and remember our adolescent-like enthusiasm and unbridled Sadomasochistic fervor. Derek introduced me to a new cadre of fetish/Sm players at the national and international levels, in addition to a niche market for 'this thing of ours' within the adult film industry. In turn, I introduced Derek to my community of family and friends, primarily stationed in my Pacific Northwest home, and partnered with him on a variety of activities that kept us traveling across the North American continent performing, teaching, playing and serving as advocates for respect and responsibility. Our relationship played out on stage, across the screen, in print, over the internet and under the scrutiny of the public eye. It seemed a natural extension of our activism and sense of adventure....More After the Jump »

Seattle, WA – Today is a day of rest and recovery from Washington State Leather Pride Week for me. It was a busy, fatiguing week culminating with the Washington State Mr & Ms Leather Contest Saturday night and our Annual Victory Brunch, Memorial & Awards Ceremony yesterday. But it was also highly enjoyable and rewarding. As Doug and Angie stepped down from their title years as Washington State Mr and Ms Leather, we had two contestants for each of the 2010 titles. Jim and Heirmister D competed for the Mr title and Boi Di and Panda Girl (pictured left to right in the image right, courtesy of Malixe) competed for the Ms. Our congratulations go out to all four contestants, and we welcome our new Washington State Ms Leather, Boi Di, and Washington State Mr Leather 2010, Heirmister D to the Washington State Leather title family.

Portland, OR – My boy Derek da Silva and I rendezvoused in Portland, OR for KinkFest this weekend. In addition to enjoying the company of other kinksters from around the country (surprisingly KinkFest is now as large an event as Thunder in the Mountains), we've been presenting classes as part of the weekend's educational series. Yesterday's advanced Shibari Fundamentals class went exceptionally well. With approximately 90 or so people in attendance, the class definitely rivaled those we've presented at ShibariCon and Thunder in past years. This afternoon we'll be presenting our Bondage for CBT class, ties and applied techniques for cock and ball bondage. While we are not comfortable publishing handouts for the Shibari class on partial and full suspension techniques we presented yesterday, we are posting our slides and handouts for the Bondage for CBT class we will be presenting later today. You can follow these links to access the full color slides and class handouts accompanying Bondage for CBT in PDF format.

Palm Springs, CA – A very interesting thread hit my inbox a couple weeks ago from the GLPW mailing list. What apparently began as a question regarding Sashes became a discussion about titleholders and I was called out by my brother Gene Romaine (pictured right on the left at the most recent Gear Night at the Cuff courtesy of Graves). Yes, it's true, I am a Leather titleholder. I served my local community as Washington State Mr Leather in 2002. And yes, I wore the Sash that came with that title on exactly three occasions; the night of the contest when I stepped up, the day I marched in the Seattle Pride parade with the Leather contingent, and, finally at the contest a year later when I stepped down. Truth is I don't really like sashes; I find them so pretentious. My title vest, however, I have worn with pride on countless occasions. Even now, eight years later, around this time in March, my title vest comes off the heavy plastic hanger in the closet and put back on my back. ...More After the Jump »
Chicago, IL - The 16th Annual Hard Choice Awards were announced on XX-Factor yesterday. At 16, the Hard Choice Awards are the second-oldest continuously running honors for all-male erotica. All gay adult films released in 2009 and reviewed in XX-Factor were eligible for consideration. Unlike the GayVNs, Grabbys and XBIZ Awards, I am told the Hard Choice Awards are determined by a single individual who has watched each film submitted for review. The winners were chosen by Onan the Vulgarian in conjunction with reviewer Harley Shadow. While these awards may not be representative of broad industry sentiment, I have always found them to be insightful and, at times, humorous.

Chicago, IL – Generally, it's not my practice to respond to bitchy queens and bitter fucks who make nasty, mean spirited blow hard posts or comments (and I most certainly will not be linking to them here). It seems, however, that some play that my boy Derek da Silva and I engaged in while at our home bar in Seattle has sparked a little debate about playing in public. Apparently, a little rope bondage and chest punching in this leather bar was enough to offend the delicate sensibilities of at least one sensitive former-Marine, who was inclined to post a particularly ignorant and insulting blog entry on the subject, which was in turn picked up by some in the blogosphere prompting a debate. While I refuse to invest any energy on individuals who are motivated to tear others down or to resort to name calling, I do believe that further contribution to the debate is in order. Luckily, my boy Derek has already done the groundwork. I offer for your consideration, the "Top 10 Reasons to Play in a Leather Bar"......More After the Jump »
30,000 ft – This past weekend I was down in San Diego, California to serve as the head judge for the Mr San Diego Eagle contest. As you can gather from the title, this is neither a big regional event nor a huge audience draw. Rather, it is a local bar title that draws a dedicated mix of individuals from the local community. Nevertheless, I came away from the experience with some very strong impressions regarding what community means and just how powerful an impact effective leadership can have on a community.

Whether delivered with bare hands (our personal favorite) or through a variety of implements designed or perverted to do wicked and nasty things – impact play can create strong physical, emotional and mental connections....More After the Jump »
Seattle, WA - With just over twenty-four hours in Seattle I'm already about to head back to the airport. This evening's destination is San Diego, California where I'll be staying the weekend while serving as head judge for the Mr San Diego Eagle contest. I'm quite excited about returning to San Diego and the opportunity to build new connections within the community of fetish/Sm players in the region. Even better, I get to share the weekend with my boy Derek Da Silva, who will be flying in from Chicago to be with me for the weekend. Tomorrow evening we're slated to present an impact play demonstration during the Mr San Diego Eagle Meet & Greet and I'm planning a very special post to the blog tomorrow that relates directly to our demo. So, if you live or are going to be in San Diego this weekend......More After the Jump »
Titan Media released the forth video in the Rough line of fetish/Sm features I'm co-directing with Paul Wilde. Abuse of Power is a solid feature with three sex-filled vignettes that explores three different examples of how some of us play with the exchange of power. Tristan Jaxx and I ambush and overpower Ridge Kane in the first. Erik Glock has his power taken from him at gun-point as he's raped by Tyler Saint in the second. And Ruff Zindao surrenders to the business end of my six-foot bullwhip in a truly incredible free-standing display of self discipline and personal power in the final, single-tail scene. From our darkest fantasies of abduction and rape, through brute force, gun play and pain, to the point of ecstasy and release, Abuse of Power delivers a unique glimpse into the way men play together on the edge.
Now, for a more personal take on TitanMen.com, an excerpt from the Scene Breakdown for ROUGH. Abuse of Power and more... ...More After the Jump »
Portland, 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......More After the Jump »
Portland, OR – This is going to be a far more personal and reflective entry than most of those that I have written before. A couple weeks ago XBIZ, the adult industry association, announced their nominations for 2010 awards. Among nominations ranging from Toy Manufacture of the Year to GLBT Company of the year to Transsexual Performer of the Year, there are the nominations for Gay Director of the Year. Among the individuals I know and respect nominated for Gay Director of the Year are Brian Mills, Chi Chi LaRue, Chris Ward, Kristofer Weston, Mr. Pam (with Michael Lucas), Steve Cruz & Leif Gobo, Steven Scarborough, and Paul Wilde (who is co-nominated with me for our work on the Rough line). Wow! I definitely didn't expect this kind of recognition when I first got into the industry....More After the Jump »
35,000 FT – By the time I get this posted, I will have already arrived back home in Seattle, but as it is, I'm writing this post on the last leg of my trip inbound at about thirty-five thousand feet above somewhere in Texas (and yes, Fuck Texas!). As you can probably guess, I'm back on the road again, traveling the United States and Canada, exploring the fetish/Sm scenes across the continent and contributing what I can to a broader sense of community. Two weeks ago I was in Vancouver, BC for the Mr Leatherman Vancouver 2010 contest. This past weekend I was in Tampa, FL for Leather Ball 3. I'll be in Seattle, WA this coming weekend for M4MKink.com's Gear Night at the Cuff Complex and a gig at the local bath house. And shortly after that, I'll be ringing in the New Year at Steam Portland, with quite a contingent of boys in tow, I might add. Yes, it looks like we're getting busy again. Here's a recap of the events in Vancouver and Tampa the past couple weeks as well as more details on what to expect as 2009 comes to a close....More After the Jump »
Seattle, WA – On Tuesday Titan Media released Battle Creek Breakdown. Again, although I generally consider myself a fetish performer, each year I try to complete one or two non-fetish features in an effort to broaden my experience within the industry and cross market appeal. Last year those two features, Chainsaw and Home Invasion were both directed by Joe Gage. I positively love getting the chance to work with the legendary director Joe Gage. His early movies, especially the Working Man Trilogy, totally helped define my queer identity and I feel truly honored to now have been a part of three of his more recent projects. ...More After the Jump »
Seattle, WA – The second part of my podcast interview with Dr Dick's Sex Advice with an Edge is live. Apparently, part one of my chat with Dr Dick has been his most popular podcast to date, breaking all download records for a single podcast in a single week. Who would a thought? In this, the second part, the Doc and I discuss: my fan base that includes loads of kinky women; my polyamorous relationships with Derek da Silva, Chris Yosef, Timmy and our pup Element; open, honest communication as key to relationship success; Power Play from my introductions to my life now as a power Switch; the exhilaration of creating scenes for my subs; the cathartic and recreational aspects of BDSM; and, the importance of working with sex positive & kink-positive healing and helping professionals. You can check out Dr Dick's Sex Advice site and download Podcast 170 to take a listen. I definitely hope you enjoy the conversation as much as I did.
Seattle, WA – Yesterday I sat down with Dr Dick for a podcast interview as part of his Sex Advice with an Edge series. You'll recall my boy Chris Yosef did an interview with the Doc a few months ago and I was called out to add my take on this thing of ours. In this first part of our interview we discus: the need for a body double, or at least a cock double; the Pacific Northwest as a hotbed of perversion; my on screen persona being the same as my off screen persona; how I got my start in the 'art film' industry; workshops Derek da Silva and present together; my mentors; my collaboration with Titan Media and the new Rough line; the challenges, opportunities and future of porn; the bareback phenomenon; and my essay A More Nuanced Position.

Seattle, WA – Landing in Seattle was like a return to reality. Often when I fly out to attend Chicago Hellfire Club (CHC) events, especially those with my boy Derek Da Silva, I feel as though I've escaped... escaped from the harsh realities of the day-to-day; escaped from the ever present judgment of those who don't understand; escaped from every type of relationship except the type of relationship in which you would expect love and respect; escaped... I put my boy Derek in his place. We had an awesome three-way with Douggerz, his partner of more than a decade. I shared time with my brother Odie and Cousin Rob. I had a photo shoot to document my current physical state. I was pampered more than one would expect. And I ran some much over-due scenes. To give you I glimpse into all of these things... ...More After the Jump »
Chicago, IL – In just a few weeks, I'll be in Vancouver BC to judge the 2010 Mr Leatherman Vancouver contest. This year's contest marks the official return of Leather to Vancouver and I feel especially honored to have been asked by Stéphane Donaldson to be a part of the event and thrilled to help select the next leather titleholder for Vancouver. The other member of the judging panel include: Head Judge, Nikitas Chondroyannos from Vancouver BC; Western Canadian Leather boy 2009, David from Calgary AB; Western Canadian Leather Sir 2009, Jonathan from Calgary AB; Rubbout Vancouver's Mitch Kenyon from Vancouver BC; Mr. Rubber Vancouver 2010, Paul Wood from Vancouver BC; and Mike Zuhl from Pittsburgh PA. My boy Chris Hanley and Priape's Michael Schelt from Vancouver BC will serve as Tally Masters for the contest. While in town, I'll also be presenting a Shibari Bondage Workshop Saturday afternoon and a Fisting Demo with my boy Chris Yosef later that night. There is no doubt in my mind that this will be a fun filled weekend of events and community building. Now, for all the details......More After the Jump »
Seattle, WA - A few months ago, International Mr. Leather founder and current president, Chuck Renslow, sent a message to IML Leather Market vendors and the members of our leather community. The letter announced a policy adopted by the Executive Committee of IML regarding the promotion or advocacy of barebacking – the practice of unprotected anal sex among men who have sex with men. This new policy specifically disallows entities that distribute and sell merchandise tending to promote or advocate barebacking from participation in the IML vendor market. Personally, I have myself questioned the level of acceptance bareback studios enjoy at leather community events. I have been troubled by the growing perception that barebacking (especially the marketing of unsafe sex with multiple, anonymous partners) is somehow an acceptable practice among responsible fetish/Sm players. Given our tribe's long tradition of taking care of each other and teaching each other how to play more safely, I am amazed our response has not been stronger or come more quickly. But, I get ahead of myself......More After the Jump »
Seattle, WA – Last Tuesday Titan Media released Eye Contact. Although I am primarily a fetish performer, each year I try to get cast in one or two non-fetish features in an effort to broaden my experience within the industry and cross market appeal.

Chainsaw paired me with Braxton Bond in one of the most natural feeling sex scenes I've ever shoot and my performance in Home Invasion earned me Best Actor nominations with both the GayNVs and the Grabbys.

The second, to be released later this year, is Battle Creek Breakdown, my third feature with the legendary director, Joe Gage. ...More After the Jump »
Seattle, WA – Back in August I took a little trip to an undisclosed location in the Los Angeles area.

Seattle, WA – Folsom was a challenge this year. It was a full working week, plus. Between flying in on Monday and then out again the following Monday, we shot three scenes for the Rough line, attended several Folsom related parties, had brunch with Brian Mills who heads Titan's production department, dinner with the studio executives, performed at Magnitude, appeared at the Titan booth at the Folsom Street Fair and conducted a series of meetings relating to the Rough line. In the middle of all of this, Folsom Maneuvers was released and, as I mentioned in my previous entry, my local boy here in Seattle was rushed to the hospital with a serious infection. While at times it may have felt a little overwhelming, I was in good company the entire time. Our Titan crew for Folsom included (pictured from left to right): Will Parker, JR Matthews, Chris Yosef, myself, Derek da Silva and Francois Sagat. ...More After the Jump »
Seattle, WA – This past weekend, in conjunction with Folsom Street Fair events, Titan Media released Fear, Folsom Prison, Folsom Undercover, and Folsom Flesh. It is also the fifth consecutive Folsom project that I've had the honor of being cast in as a performer. In Folsom Maneuvers' opening scene I'm paired with Adam Knox, who first appeared on screen in ROUGH: Shock Treatment which I co-directed with Paul Wilde. The chemistry between Knox and I had been growing since we first met here in Seattle and my only regret regarding his performance in ROUGH: Shock Treatment was that I wasn't fucking his sweet ass in that project so I was eager to bring our connection to the screen. The weather couldn't have been better at Titan ranch when we shot the scene which helped heighten the aggressive jet playful action. The scene is best described as dirty and wet,...More After the Jump »
San Francisco, CA – As if there isn't enough going on in my life... I'm in San Fran shooting Rough.5 and preparing for a weekend full of events associated with Folsom Street Fair. I sometimes wonder how it all came to this craziness. This Folsom weekend represents my second anniversary in the adult industry if you count from the date a performer's first release. Two years in and I'm in the middle of directing my fifth project for the new Rough line of fetish/Sm features for Titan Media. I have sixteen titles released and three in the can to be released over the next few months, not to mention the three Rough projects in the works. Two years ago this time I saw my image on a Titan banner, larger than life, and watched as the big screen monitor played out a scene which my boy Derek in full inverted suspension got ravaged by Tober Brandt and myself in the official Folsom release, Fear. Last year I was NakedSword's Dream Team Player for September with Folsom Prison highlighted in the Bar Area Reporter. This year, Folsom Maneuvers (my fifth consecutive Folsom release with Titan including Fear, Folsom Prison, Folsom Undercover and Folsom Flesh) debuts on the heels of Rough.3: Bound and Beaten. This year I'm slated for Folsom Maneuvers release party at the Powerhouse Friday night followed by an appearance at Chi Chi LaRue's Pop Goes the Zipper; a family brunch, rehearsals, an Exclusives' dinner with studio executives and a performance at Magnitude on Saturday; and the Folsom Street Fair on Sunday.

I am now well aware that Burkitt’s, a fast growing form of immunodificency-associated non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma which requires an aggressive bout of chemotherapy lasting four to six months.

Seattle, WA – Family is important. It can provide a sense of belonging, support and love. Regardless of the relationship we may have with our biological families, for many queers like me, it is our families of choice that provide the foundations of our lives. This is, in my experience, especially true for my fellow kinksters, gender queers and those of us who express radically alternative sexual identities. While I have been witness to a few notable exceptions, for the most part, our queer identities were too much for our biological families to handle... there love was almost always conditional. They could love us so long as we didn't turn into some faggot or dyke. They could still love us, while hating the sin, so long as we didn't tell anyone, especially other members of the family who would never understand our dirty little secret. Father time and mother nature help you if you blurred your gender or got caught tying the neighbor kid to a tree and pissing on him a little, 'cause that would require professional help. By the time we became adults, we either learned censored what we shared with the bios or we were censured by them. For me, the later finally came when I was shooting my first, dirty little movie. I never really was one to accept conditions being place on who I am....More After the Jump »

Although this release follows the launch of the ROUGH line with Shock Treatment, Fist and Piss was in fact the first project Paul Wild and I co-directed for the new line. While Fist and Piss will not be regarded as 'shocking' as our first release, it continues the exploration into contemporary fetish and Sm by capturing the intensity and passions embodied by real players as they engage in the kind of activities that help define radical sexuality and queer identity.

San Francisco, CA –- Yesterday, we wrapped shooting the second feature in the new fetish/Sm line Paul Wilde and I are co-directing for Titan. The primary theme for this feature was electro play. This type of play is fairly advanced, difficult to capture on screen and particularly challenging to cast, but I'm extremely happy with our results.
The first scene we shot is actually a tribute to one of my many mentors, Parker Perry because he introduced me to the scene and allowed me to apprentice under his tutelage as I learned the techniques, mechanics and subtleties of punch fucking the prostate with electrical current. No, it's not the most visually stunning electro scene I could have chosen to capture for this feature, but it is one of the more advanced and intense electro scenes played out in play spaces across the globe. To demonstrate just how intense the scene can be, I recruited my new pup from Portland, Element, to come down and bottom for me. The scene involves a hand crafted brass butt plug (which the pup has taken to calling his 'spark plug'), a Van Buren Urethral sound, an ErosTech box and a couple of Alligator Clips. I'm sure you can close the circuit in your mind, although I would suggest you not try this at home without the guidance of an experienced practitioner. An understanding of and experience with electro play, sounding and clean & sterile technique are all minimally required for this type of play. For this type of play to be effective and rewarding however, you need to be able to read your bottom and subtly manipulate the stimulation. Here's what the pup had to say about the scene...
##### Begin Quote #####
I have to say that the scene I performed in last week was one of the most amazing times I’ve ever had in my life. To begin with, the whole interaction was my first ever screen appearance, but the guys at Titan were so welcoming and attentive I couldn't help but feel comfortable. Of course, the main perk was getting to work with you, sir.
I have never had a sound down my shaft or a spark plug up my ass, but you slid those things in like I had been lubed and preparing myself for days. The first jolt of the current was a bit nerve racking but also so intriguing and new that I found myself turning into an electro fiend within seconds. I would keep questioning in my head, More! More? I want more? YES! MORE!
And really I have to say kudos to you for doing what you do sooooo damn well sir. Heading into the scene, working out what comes next, figuring out the camera angles; it all had such a great flow to it that it seriously did feel like there weren’t any camera’s recording, to quote my brudder Chris. As we were looking for the cum shot I found myself being shy, a vulnerable shy. Felling like, Oh shit, the world is on your shoulders now element, let the force be with you. But honestly in few moments notice I couldn’t help but orgasm in a frenzy, between your skilled hands pushing the limits to the intense setting, and clinching my ass to intensify the current. I was done in, and there was no turning back.
It was an amazing scene.

For a visually stunning scene, we turned to my boy Derek da Silva, who isn't just one of the heaviest bottoms you could ever hope to beat but a very talented top as well... a true power switch. I knew if we wanted sparks to fly, my boy could make it happen. Here's what Derek had to say about his scene with Mitch Colby...
##### Begin Quote #####
I’ve been really enjoying getting back to topping scenes – I have a creative streak that I like to express and I can think of no better way to express it than making a hot man like Mitch suffer in the most twisted and exquisite ways I can think of.
For this scene we wanted some electrical play that was more visual, so I turned to the violet wand since it is probably the one piece of electro equipment where you can really see what is happening. Part of the inspiration for what you’ll see in this scene stems from a conversation with Clive Barker I had last fall. Our mutual friend Jo Jo Baby introduced me to Clive as Clive was interested in depicting electro and I have a rep for doing some heavy electrical play on and off camera. Clive asked about ways to make it visually stunning, and I was a little stumped for how to make it look better, but his question got me thinking about it – and he signed an old book I had with a great illustration of a lightning bolt hitting a cock. When you see the vid, you’ll know what the drawing inspired!
It was great working with Mitch. We’re old friends and we did a BG East wrestling video together right before the weekend where Tony Buff collared me on the set of the first video we did together. I had wanted to bring Mitch in on that shoot but it never materialized. Now, two years later, I’m really happy that we are doing a proper BDSM scene together at last. We’ve known each other so long and have talked about this forever. And along the way we’ve built the kind of trust that it takes to really push the limits of a scene. While this was Mitch’s very first electro scene it was hardly a beginner scene. I’m honored that he trusted me enough to go there with me, and what’s more, share his first experience with this kind of play on video. To his credit he hung in there through what was a really nasty scene – and his body looked amazing thrashing in pain. I had to wait a long time to finally play with him, but it was worth the wait.

Rounding out Derek and Mitch's scene and adding to the action were Buzz Cox and Andrea who deliver a great rough fuck on their own after watching Derek work over Mitch and getting a shock or two themselves.
We wrapped the second day of shooting with a scene straight from Amnesty International's list of torture activities. If you thought the stun gun I took to Derek's nuts in Folsom Prison was over the top, wait until you see how far we go when he's strapped to a floating bondage table and Roger from Shotgun Video has lent me a crank generator to play with. Derek is so cute when he's suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.
All-in-all, it was an excellent shoot. I love working with Titan. My co-director, Paul and I have already developed a cohesive directing style and we're taking each shoot as a learning experience applied to the next. On a related note, we've reviewed and approved the final edit of our first Rough feature and all I can say is our editing department fuckin' rocks. I can't wait for the release next month.
San Francisco, CA –- Folsom Prison wins Best Fetish Film at the 11th Annual GayVN Awards at the Castro Theater in San Francisco. This marks the third year in a row that one of Titan Media's cobranded features with Folsom Street Events has won the Best Fetish or Fetish (Extreme) category at the GayVNs with Folsom Filth in 2007 and Fear in 2008. It is also the second year in a row that Derek and I had scenes together in the winning feature (note: Derek has been in all three). I can't help but feel a personal sense of accomplishment following this recognition since Folsom Prison was my first venture into writing and directing. Thanks to Brian Mills being willing to collaborate so fully, Diesel Washington and I have co-writing credit with him and I was given the opportunity to co-direct the scenes I have in the film....More After the Jump »
San Francisco, CA –- Last night was the big kick off to GayVN weekend in the Castro. From early evening through the late night, studios, media organizations, performers and fans congregated at various locations around the Castro. I started my evening off at Sui Generis which was hosting Steve Cruz's event for the How I Roll campaign. I was there not just because my boy Derek was scheduled to appear (which he was) or I consider Steve a friend (he is) but because I support the cause. Efforts to advocate safer sex, educate our communities and open dialog about the prevention of HIV and STD transmission are as important now as they ever have been and I'm happy to do my part to bring attention to these efforts....More After the Jump »

Seattle, WA –- Two of my boys were here in Seattle when I came home from San Francisco. Chris from Vancouver and my local boy Blueeyes have been getting along really well. The two of them seem to be bonding on a pretty deep level. Chris has always been rather quiet and reserved. I've been delighted to see how quickly he has opened up and become attached to his new little brother. Blueeyes seems to be reveling in the prospects of joining the family. I think on one level he's found something that he didn't realize he was looking for in his relationship with me. Becoming part of something even larger than that and finding relationships with Chris and Derek as well, I'm sure has come as a pleasant surprise even if it does mean coming to grips with concepts like polyamory and a new 'family dynamic.' ...More After the Jump »

In keeping with our RACK (Risk Aware Consensual Kink) inspired desire to capture real players in real scenes with real intensity, this production is no exception. If the piss and lube soaked studio floor or five inches of nasty in the bottom of that cast-iron, four-claw tub are any indication, we've succeeded in documenting two intense play sessions that are sure to please. And we've done it in a manner that facilitates the fluidity of the players' action....More After the Jump »
Seattle, WA –- It was like that when I met Derek. The first time I saw him walking past registration at Inferno XXXV I knew I had to pursue him. The first time we played I knew we shared something special. And the first time he came to visit me in Seattle I knew he'd be my boy. I had no idea just how deep our relationship would become or the amount of growth it would foster in both of us, but I knew my life wouldn't be the same again. I'm pretty sure Derek would be the first to admit that when he accepted my collar back in May of 2007 he didn't really know what all it entailed but I can say it has become everything I could have hoped for in a D/s relationship....More After the Jump »

Denver, CO -- When I was asked to present at Thunder in the Mountains earlier this year I jumped on the opportunity. I knew by reputation that this event was among the most respected BDSM events organized and that it was known for attracting some of the best presenters in the world. This year's presenters included some good friends, personally respected players and new acquaintances on the national scene.
Susan B, another Seattleite whom I've seen engage in some beautiful, intense and spiritually connected scenes, was there, teaching advanced cutting and suturing. Midori was there and while I wasn't able to attend any of her classes (they were scheduled at the same time as mine), we were able to spend some quality time together and I was able to introduce her to my boy Derek.
Side Bar: We discussed performance art in relation to Sm, among other things. I'm sure I've already reported upon my respect for the intelligence of both Midori and my boy. Let me now state, unequivocally, that talking about any subject in the company of such intellectuals is a challenge to keep up. I am truly blessed by the company I keep.
Speaking of performance art, I got to judge the annual talent contest at Thunder and Felice Shays, another presenter, delivered a spectacular piece that included the fisting of a watermelon that is among the best performances I've seen.
I also got a chance to hang out with Mark Frazier, the new owner of the ILSb title which I'll be judging in October, and Scott Smith, one of the most incredible tops I've ever meet. I can't express how happy I am with the changes Frazier has made to the ILSb title, his efforts to reclaim it as a player's title or my admiration for him as a person. Then there's Scott, it's always a pleasure to see him... he's got some wicked skills and I love learning new, twisted shit from him. I lent Derek out to him for his class on using needles as anchors and even got to assist a bit. It was great fun.
As for my classes, they went very well. There were more people in attendance than I expected and both presentations were well received. It is so much fun to present before such an advanced audience. As promised, I'm posting the slide decks from both classes here for reference. Both the Shibari with Man subs and Full Suspension for Display and Play handouts are in pdf format.
I want to express my compliments to Rich Dockter, the Director of Thunder, and his entire crew of staff and volunteers, for putting on an outstanding event. I'm happy to report Derek and I have been invited back next year and we are already looking forward to doing it again.

San Francisco, CA -- Several readers have requested more pictures of my rope work. Some have asked that I elaborate on using rope to seduce. Lo' and behold, the universe has granted an opportunity to comply. After helping friends move a refrigerator, brunch and meeting up with more friends in the Castro, my boy and I went to the Eagle for Beer Bust. The place was crowded.

San Francisco, CA -- After Derek and I got into town earlier this week we scored tickets to the San Francisco Fetish Ball from Fivestar, courtesy of SocialKink.com.

Seattle, WA -- Jeff and I drove Derek to the airport after brunch yesterday then went to Midori's Predicament Bondage workshop at Seattle's Center for Sex Positive Culture. This was one of the many Bondage Lessons organized by my friend Max. I am grateful to him for providing these educational opportunities. Whether he is teaching or the class is taught by one of the many accomplished individuals he brings in, you are guaranteed some of the best presentations available....More After the Jump »
Seattle, WA -- Last night was the show for NW Sash Bash followed by the Extreme Play Party, both hosted by GLPW. My brothers, Gene and Odie pulled together the show and I MC'd. The show itself was cabaret-style with performance pieces, live auctions, introductions of current title-holders and raffles. ...More After the Jump »
Seattle, WA -- We got off to a late start on the NW Sash Bash Education Series this afternoon but even help from my adopted boy Rich and his boy Steven couldn't stave off mother nature. As soon as we got set-up it started to rain and as Derek ran the first needle in his demo the hale started falling. I don't mean little pellets either; this was a fingernail-sized hale. We were fine continuing until the thunder and lightning. Given the fact we were working under double stack metal scaffolding, I had to call the scene....More After the Jump »
Seattle, WA -- Derek arrived yesterday morning and Jeff joined us shortly thereafter. I couldn't have asked for a better initial exchange.

Seattle, WA -- As you may have guessed, rigging gives me a hard-on. Whether used to reel them in, tie them down or string them up, I love rope. And my favorite type of rope is hemp.

Seattle, WA -- Back in boot it was a High & Tight. After, it became a High & Tight Flattop. Then when I became an NCO, I started wearing the Straight Razor Fade. It's one of my favorite haircuts of all time (right after the Mohawk and before Shaved). It's a military regulation haircut with a masculine, commanding look and feel... a good, clean cut with a little bit of an edge that can fit in just about any situation or environment, from dungeon to theater (oh, that's a jump?!). ...More After the Jump »

San Francisco, CA -- The entire Titan crew rallied en masse in front of the Giftcenter then made our way down the red carpet together, stopping only to give our regards to Tim & Roma. Once inside Derek and I got cocktails and mingled a bit visiting with friends before congregating at the front table reserved for Titan. Excellent seats. I had the honor of sitting between studio owner Bruce Cam and director Brian Mills. Because of the number of presenters and nominees from Titan there wasn't room at the front table and Derek had a ticket for the back table, so I rigged one of those quick binders I've been so fond of lately and he spent the show bound on his knees behind my chair. It was too cute and very much in keeping with our reputation....More After the Jump »

Seattle, WA -- This past weekend was devoted primarily to a series of workshops, social events and play sessions focused on one of my favorite BDSM activities, rope bondage. While rope is not always present, it is a component of most of the scenes I create. Rope is one of my passions and I am always eager to learn more whether it is from structured training or the exchange of ideas with other riggers. The last few days provided many of these opportunities. ...More After the Jump »
Seattle, WA -- My boy Derek was in town from late Friday night through the New Year. I was so happy to see him again and couldn't imagine a better way to bring in 2008 save for one exception...

Seattle, WA -- While shooting with Titan, I simply tie them down and put a gag in their mouth. If you don't have a ball gag handy, a twelve-foot length of rope with a double frapping knot does the trick nicely. The rope may not butch them up, but at least it immobilizes them and the gage keeps them from talking about themselves or Cher long enough to build some sexual energy on set....More After the Jump »
[Undisclosed Location], CA -- Monday morning, I flew into SFO and immediately headed down to the Titan ranch to begin shooting Home Invasion, a new feature directed by Joe Gage. This is my forth movie with Titan and second with GayVN Hall of Fame Director, Joe Gage. The Titan ranch is starting to feel like a vacation home. Now don't get the wrong idea; shooting 'art films' is definitely work, but the weather has been beautiful (especially after rainy Seattle and a very cold Chicago) and the crew takes very good care of me....More After the Jump »
Chicago, IL -- It was a successful night all the way around. The Chicago Hellfire Club presented Colors to the Hole/Jackhammer bar with many club brothers and guests in attendance.

This was the first time we were able to perform at a venue that allowed us to take photos. You caqn check them out here I hope you enjoy...

Seattle, WA -- Friday night at the Cuff during the Seattle Daddy/Daddy's Boy contest Meet & Greet, I was surprised by a very special honor. Apparently, I had been nominated by members of Mama's family here in Seattle and adopted into Sandy Reinhardt's fold. Many of the members of Mama's Family who call Seattle home were on hand to present me the unique brass name tag that christened me as one of Mama's own. The significance of this may be lost to many of you reading my journal, but I can assure you that I am more than honored by this recognition... I am humbled....More After the Jump »
Los Angeles, CA --That's what we used to call Marines who went though boot at MCRD San Diego, CA. The term works well to describe me. I've been at home here in my old stomping grounds, these last few days. Although I grew up in southern Cali, I never lived in West Hollywood but it was a frequently visited backyard. There is a certain friendly, theater quality to Los Angeles witch is brought to a high focus among the gay populous of WeHo. I've been a theater Buff as long as I can remember and friendly, bordering on flirtatious. I fit right in in just about any scene....More After the Jump »

32-Thousand Feet -- Yesterday's primary focus was a continuance on the theme of my last journal entry. My rubber boy Eric drove me down to TwistedMonk's workshop here in Seattle to pick up two more pieces of thirty-six foot length, 8 mm crimson hemp.

Seattle, WA -- Recent events have me thinking about blood. As I am sure you understand, blood is an essential compound of life as well as a powerful symbol of sexual and physical magic.
