Interview with Ed Wood for Xtra West

30 August 2010 18:19

PersonalInterview with Ed Wood for Xtra West 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 talked 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… Read the rest of this entry »

Church Street Fetish Fair 2010

RiggingChurch St Fetish Fair 2010 Seattle, WA – People from all over the world converged on Toronto ONT this past weekend for the Church Street Fetish Fair, and thanks to my friends at the Black Eagle I was right in the thick of all the excitement. I played with uncut cock from Mexico; fucked a boy from Taiwan; connected with an intelligent, tattooed, queer, skater-punk artist; chatted with fans and followers from Germany, France, England and Australia; and re-connected with my friends from Toronto who are responsible for my love affair with their fair city. Once again Gloria served as my ‘handler’ for the weekend, Carlos and his staff at the Black Eagle were exceptionally good to me during my stay and the players in the local fetish/Sm scene made me feel so much a part of their world, I was reluctant to leave.

Priape’s 5th Anniversary in Vancouver

FlagPriape's 5th Anniversary in VancouverSeattle, 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. I was happy to be back up north and thrilled to be helping Priape celebrate five years of valued involvement and contributions to our northwest leather tribe. It came as no surprise to me the Priape chose to celebrate this anniversary by supporting a fundraiser hosted by the current Mr Vancouver Leather, Doug Mitchell, and by sponsoring a party for the community at the Pumpjack, our local leather bar.

Community Building

MonsignoreCommunity Building35,000 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. For 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… Read the rest of this entry »

D/sDivers/Cite Festival 2009 Montreal, QC – This weekend, my boy Derek Da Silva and I have been in Montreal for the annual Divers/Cite Festival 2009 celebrations. Our friend and current Mr International Rubber, Stéphane set up several opportunities for us to interact with the local fetish/Sm community and was our host for the weekend. We couldn’t be more grateful; we had an absolute blast. Friday night we did a meet & greet and a rope bondage demonstration at the Black Eagle. Saturday afternoon, we taught an introductory Shibari rope bondage class at the Black Eagle and then made an appearance at Priape to promote the new Rough line of fetish/Sm features I’m co-directing with Paul Wilde for Titan Media. Then we performed at K.L.U.B, the big leather, latex, uniform and bear fetish party Saturday night. Read the rest of this entry »

Bound, Beaten and Tickled – Playing at the IML Leather Market

RiggingReleased: Folsom FleshChicago, IL – Today at the IML Leather Market, I joined Titan exclusive and friend, Dean Flynn with my boys Derek da Silva and Chris Yosef and our pup, Element to work the Titan/Priape booth. I also got an opportunity to play with Will Parker, my scene partner in the TitanMen release, Folsom Flesh. Impromptu rope bondage, Tomcat flogging/whipping and male bonding is a great way to start-off a day of work and play. As you can tell from the video clip below, the chemistry between Will ‘the Pig’ Parker and I is as strong now as it was when we shot our scene for our TitanMen/Folsom Street Events co-branded release for IML in association with Priape.com.
