A film still from Kink, a documentary examining the BDSM website Kink.com

As BDSM and kink continue to go more mainstream, it’s coverage in the media continues. This time there is a fairly positive news article to be found in today’s New York Times…

“On a recent Friday night, a small group of people lined up in a cinder-block hallway inside an unmarked entrance to Paddles, a club on West 26th Street. Two men in their 60s were discussing real estate and a few women in their 20s were sending last-minute texts before going down two flights to the subterranean space.”

“Paddles is not another trendy table tennis emporium, but a “safe space” to live out erotic fantasies, specifically BDSM (bondage/discipline, domination/submission, sadism/masochism), OTK (over the knee; in other words, spanking), and an alphabet soup’s worth of other sexual practices that, until recently, have gone largely unnoticed and undiscussed by the mainstream world.”

Thanksgiving weekend and munch time with old friends

kinky thanksgiving

On Saturday, I dropped by the Saturday Lunch Munch out in Lasalle. This munch is organized by Lady Renata & Laird Dave and has been running for 10 years now!

It was a fairly quiet one, but it was nice to catch up with old friends for a change. I’ve been stuck in the house for several weeks now, trying to let my back injury recuperate as much as possible; so as a result I tend to go a bit stir-crazy at times, missing all my kink friends.

The rest of my Thanksgiving long weekend was rather quiet, but I’m gearing myself up for next weekend, as I’ll be spending it with several of my vanilla friends at a local annual event — should be fun!

Back from the Sunday Munch…

Was nice to meet some of the old regulars and some new faces. The restaurant was “La Cage aux Sports” in downtown Montreal — most of us weren’t impressed because the waiter kept screwing up our orders or waiting forever for them… We ended up calling over the manager to try and straighten everything out.

Met a local sub who has graciously volunteered for some of our upcoming “Montreal FemDomme Society” events later this summer and fall. I’m particularly looking forward to organizing some of our “Mistress High Teas”.

Gotta admit though, dessert was pretty decent. My fellow Femdomme, Lady August and I shared a double brownie with ice cream. She and I are “dessert buddies”; we always seem to aim for the same desserts and have the same tastes, so we share one between the two of us so it’s not as sinful. We save the sinful stuff for when we’re Domming…

Heading out to a Sunday Munch…

Caesar Salad

It’s Sunday and I am heading out to one of the monthly Montreal munches in about an hour. I’ll be picking up my Domme friend Lady August Joy, that is, if she gets over her migraine in time. I’m bringing some Motrin for her, just in case…

It will be nice to sit down with people over a meal and chat about everything and anything. Usually there is a good 20-odd people, but those numbers might be lower due to Father’s Day — we’ll see.

Be back to review the proceedings later…

A Hot & Knotty Saturday…

Male bound in black rope

Since I didn’t make it to the June 3rd Fetish Friday event, I’ve been real antsy to get out and have some kinky fun. Both of my male subs are gone to Europe, and my femsub is working 2 jobs and therefore unavailable, so play-wise, I am currently temporarily sub-less.

Got to chat over the phone with my FemDomme friend Lady August Joy and we decided to attend “Le Chateau” together. We’ve already done some scenes together, particularly on my sub jon and really play quite well together.

Saturday the 11th was also the day of one of the local munches, but it was supposed to be a picnic munch and with all the hot muggy weather, neither I nor any of my friends felt up to it, and decided to skip it and rest up for the evening’s fun instead.

So I picked up August Joy in my car (finally got the A/C fixed – Yeah!), so we had a nice refreshing drive out to the eastern part of the island to “Le Chateau”. Luckily we found parking right across the street, which was a good thing, since I was hauling a fairly hefty pack with a large part of my kinky toy collection inside and it was rather heavy. (Never mind the half dozen riding crops sticking out one end…)

Hmmmmmm… they rearranged some of the interior of Le Chateau, including several large drape/curtains across the doorway entrances to some of the rooms, to keep the air conditioned air contained within. The back “comfy room” as I’ve taken to calling it, has been transformed into a sort of mini-theater, with a projection screen showing kinky films. The ones they were showing were without sound and relatively short and were on repeat. Unfortunately, it is now too dark in the room to even see others in order to have a decent conversation. I did find some tealights set out and lit them, which helped a bit…

I dug out my trio of new books to share with Lady August while we waited for more folk to arrive. Also showed her my new riding crops and my new set of beautiful black bondage ropes. A francophone gentleman sitting across the way was also quite interested so I let him see them too. A conversation ensued where he discovered that we were “sub-less” for the evening and offered himself for our use. He was gentle-natured and quite pleasing to the eye and so after some discussion, we decided to take him up on the offer.

The three of us went upstairs, where I had discovered one of the other play rooms was now much better lit and much cooler. Since he was a relative newcomer to the scene, we decided to take it quite easy on him as we were not familiar with all of his reactions, etc.

August and I decided to use the sawhorse for our play and I proceeded to use my new ropes to restrain him, binding his wrists and wrapping his waist/ lower back area to both hold him and protect his kidneys from any flogging. We noticed he had a mild sunburn and put a cool wet cloth across his shoulders to keep him from overheating. I also kept one nearby for myself, as the room tended to warm up from people coming in and out of the room to watch, letting the cool air escape.

I blindfolded him to keep him on the alert and to heighten the experience, something he later said really worked quite well on him. Between the two of us, we warmed up his cheeks to a nice rosy glow with some spanking, my selection of riding crops and my red flogger.

Later, I untied him from the sawhorse and proceeded to do a Shibari-style diamond body harness on him. While August proceeded to tease his nipples, I took out some more of my rope, this time a finer white cord and started to wrap up his uncircumcised cock for some light CBT. It definitely did something for him, as he started to get hard…

We played a while longer, but kept it to about an hour, as it was getting so warm that it was very uncomfortable for us and we needed to rest. Before he went off to shower, he mentioned that if we wanted to play again later, he would be more than willing to offer himself again, but neither of us was really up to doing a whole scene again due to the heat. It sure can be hard work, especially in the muggy heat…

We rested on the couches for a while, talking with others. I briefly got to meet Softskin (from ALT) and her husband. Several people made comments on my large and heavy bag of toys, and I ended up taking out my books again and some of my goodies to share/show the others.

One of my Dom friends, Spike, was there with a femsub named aria, and asked if I would be willing to try some of my bondage on her. I was fairly restored by then and decided to give it a go. She was a fair bit taller than me, so it was a bit of a challenge.

I joined my two 24 foot ropes, so that I could attempt a “Mermaid” style full body harness, using a Shibari-inspired diamond pattern, and a crossed arms behind the back rope restraint.

Wow. Gorgeous!

It turned out quite nice if I do say so myself… I was VERY pleased with my work as that is the first time that I got to try that particular effect.

Spike proceeded to lift and move her carefully over to the imposing black wall cross, where, with a bit of my help in positioning her feet, we mounted her on the footstand. I proceeded to stabilize her with rope from her elbows to the cross arms and he blindfolded her with a scarlet red bandana. I thought that all that black with a touch of red in her blond hair made for a striking composition — as did Spike (he is a fetish photographer too). I wish I had been allowed to have my camera with me as it made for a delightful pose.

Spike got to have some nice playtime with her bound so nicely to the cross, before he took his time undoing the rope work, learning some of the pattern work by doing so.

I think that perhaps Spike and I might collaborate more in the future, doing some fetish photography of some of my bondage art works. I’ll have to keep an eye out for potential models…. any offers anyone?

All in all, a delightful evening at Le Chateau, if somewhat tiring from the heat and mugginess. But it felt so nice to be back among kinky folk and to have some playtime.

Lady August and I decided to stop by a Tim Hortons for a quick bite and something refreshing to drink before I dropped her off. I decided to spoil myself and try their new mini chocolate cheesecake, but I wasn’t impressed because it was too chewy for cheesecake, it was more like fudge. The iced cappucinno was also not great, as it separates much too easily into coffee water and ice. I *much* prefer the iced “Moolattas” from Dairy Queen — they are much more rich and remind me somewhat of a coffee milkshake. The DQ ones come in variety of flavours too; French Vanilla (my fave), cappuccino, moka and caramel.

It was dawn by the time I dropped her off and the rosy skies cheered me as I drove home tired but pleased by my night of kinky fun…

Another kinky weekend is shaping up for Mistress Jade!

Jade’s flogger

Ooooooooooh, I am so pleased — this weekend looks to be shaping up to be another fun and kinky one!

I am planning on attending the fetish play party at Club L’Eclipse sponsored by Il Bolero. Never been to it before so I thought I would check it out for myself. My Domme friend AugustJoy will be coming as well as my male sub jon.

Saturday night looks to be a big one at Le Chateau. So far, here’s who is attending, other than myself:
– My Dom partner, Master Michael
– my male sub, jon
– Lady Katana (tentative)
– Lady AugustJoy
– Lady AugustJoy’s 2 friends

and from the ALT community:
– Domina Jade
– Masterstouch51
– Softskin4
– intrepid_fad

So we are looking at around 11 people! Wow, that will be a great crowd…

I mentioned in my ALT “BDSM & Fetish Montreal” group that I was looking to practice some of my wax play techniques and Masterstouch51 has graciously offered the use of his body. It should be interesting having someone else upon which to drip my candles!

Also, Lady AugustJoy and I were planning on doing a double Domme tag-team on my playsub jon, who is definitely looking forward to it, after the last play session we had with him.

On Sunday, I have my monthly munch to attend, so that will be a nice way to wind down the weekend with other kinky friends.

So, how do you spend your weekends? Do you ever get to go out to kinky events? Are there many clubs or events in your city or area? Are you much of a social person or do you tend to keep to yourself and private scenes? I’d be interested in finding out what others do…
