House For Sale With Dungeon Makes The News

So a house in Philadelphia went up for sale yesterday that included a private basement BDSM dungeon, complete with kink furniture and equipment, and has become known as “50 Shades of Maple Glen“.

The US$750,000 house was posted on sites such as Zillow & Redfin, popular online realtor listing services, and quickly became viral (because apparently these things totally fascinate the Vanillas), however the controversy had the dungeon photos removed from many online listings.

However, the realtor still has the entire set of photos on their own realtor listing:

A Quebec Long Weekend

Quebec’s provincial holiday, known as “La fête St-Jean” is quickly approaching and almost everyone is looking forward to a long holiday weekend.

I am looking forward to spending time with my beloved Partner, Oudjat — as work obligations meant that we missed out on time together last weekend. So I guess we’ll be trying to make up for it this weekend!

At least the weather isn’t looking so outrageously hot as it has been earlier this month. There’s a bit of cloud expected, and even the possibility of a thunderstorm on Sunday; but that won’t stop us from having fun.

We are also looking forward to attending Saturday’s BDSM play party at our favourite kinky home-away-from-home, the Club L’Espace dungeon — located in Montreal’s popular downtown Village area.

The Gay Village is currently in it’s summertime pedestrian mode, and is sporting it’s colourful decorative rainbow balls overhead.

Kinky Sex Is The New Norm in Quebec?

Today the local Montreal Gazette posted an article discussing the growing kinkiness of Quebecers.

While our province has always been known for its linguistic tensions, the study by researchers Christian Joyal and Julie Carpentier shows that we may soon become known for something much more erotic: our rather risqué sexual proclivities.

Handcuffs, blindfolds, spanking — Joyal said there is significant interest among Quebecers in engaging in those types of sexual activities. People aren’t just fantasizing about it, he added; they wish to do it.

Nearly half of the 1,040 Quebecers surveyed (45.6 per cent) have an interest in at least one type of sexual behaviour considered anomalous, like voyeurism, fetishism and masochism. One third of them had experienced the behaviour at least once.

“Deliciously Disabled” Sex-Positive Party during the Parapan Am Games

Deliciously_Disabled_poster

A sex party is planned for disabled individuals in Toronto on August 14th, during the Parapan Am Games which has drawn more than 1,000 athletes with disabilities to the region. But don’t call it an orgy…

“An orgy is when everybody comes together and has sex together,” explained one of the event’s organizers. “This is a sex-positive play party. The difference is that people can attend the event but they don’t have to participate if they don’t want to — they can be voyeurs, they can enjoy it like you would enjoy any other type of party … but then there’s the added bonus of being able to be intimate with your partner or explore some sexual activity if you want to.”

The event’s organizers say that while most discussions about accessibility for the disabled focus on physical barriers, it’s also important to look at the emotional and social hurdles that people with disabilities face, such as the widespread belief that they aren’t sexual beings.

“Access (to sexuality) is such a major barrier for people with disabilities — I don’t think there’s any other group in society that, depending on the level of their physical limitation, can’t even pleasure themselves sexually,” said Stella Palikarova, a disability awareness consultant.

“You can imagine trying to go through life being completely unable to have any sort of sexual relief or even to think that you are perceived by others as being sexually desirable or a sexual person,” said Palikarova, who uses a wheelchair. “That becomes a really major human rights issue for me.”

As buzz around the event grows, a spokeswoman with the Council of Canadians With Disabilities said the issue the party seeks to highlight is an important one.

“The reality is that we are sexual beings,” said vice-chairwoman Pat Danforth. “It’s an issue that remains seldom talked about, which I find quite bizarre.” Danforth, who herself uses a wheelchair, said she’s met a number of individuals with significant disabilities who’ve told her “no one ever gave them permission before to be sexual.”

“With this event, one of the things it will do is, it will give people permission to have an opportunity to explore their own sexuality,” she said. “If it’s in such a way that it’s demonstrating a healthy take on sexuality, then that’s a good thing. It makes people aware and it makes some people less uncomfortable.”

Event Details: The location is at Buddies in Bad Times theatre (which is fully accessible). and it can hold 125 people including roughly 25 wheelchairs. Tickets are $20 each. Personal support workers can attend for free, and there will be interpreters for the hearing impaired.

A Weekend of Family Time & Kinky Time

An interesting weekend filled with both family obligations, and some kinky social time…

My partner Oudjat and I had the weekend to ourselves for a change, and spent the first part of it just chilling out, cuddling and taking it easy. Extremely relaxing!

On Saturday evening, we had a family obligation for a Birthday dinner, with a lovely home-cooked meal and topped it off with a magnificent 5 Layer Chocolate Mocha cake that Oudjat picked out at my favourite local Moroccan pastry shop in his neighbourhood.

After a quick turn-around to my place to freshen up, and pick up our kinky “toy bag” of goodies; we headed downtown to Club L’Espace, our favourite dungeon and kinky social zone. It was a delight to meet up with an old friend, my former submissive “g”, as we hadn’t seen in each other since last December and it was very enjoyable time chatting and catching up with each other.

We stayed at Club L’Espace until closing (after 4am) and headed back home as the morning sun was rising and the sleepy city was slowly coming back awake. I really love that quiet interlude between when the night’s noisy party-makers have already headed home, and Montreal’s early morning workers have yet to make an appearance. It’s a great time to take a nice walk in one of the many parks, or even a slow drive home through the almost-deserted city streets is that much more enjoyable.

I really love my city and it’s many facets!

Retired Dominatrix Considering Outing Canadian Politicians

dominatrix_terri

Former dominatrix Terri-Jean Bedford has sent a letter to sex workers across Canada asking for feedback on whether she should reveal the names of politicians she claims have employed sex workers.

Bedford, who led the legal battle that overturned Canada’s prostitution laws, threatened to name naughty politicians at a Senate hearing last month into C-36, the law the Conservative government is bringing in to make it illegal to buy sex.

Releasing a list would “show the hypocrisy of those who want to impose their will on others while themselves engaging in the very behaviour they want to others to stop.” She also suggests that her plan would keep the issue in the public eye. “Nothing attracts media attention as much as politics combined with scandals of this kind.

Article: Retired Dominatrix escorted out of Canadian Senate meeting

Retired dominatrix Terri-Jean Bedford was escorted by security out of a Senate committee meeting after refusing to heed the chair’s warning that her allotted speaking time had run out — but not before threatening to make politicians “forget about Mike Duffy.

The woman who won a Supreme Court challenge to Canada’s prostitution laws told committee members that the government’s proposal to criminalize buyers of sex would “make Canada the laughingstock of the world.
