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.

Unholy Harvest – Oct. 10-12th, 2008

Unholy Harvest

My dear friend Andrea, the former Montrealer now living in Toronto, otherwise known as the Sex Geek, has been mentioned in an article regarding the upcoming Unholy Harvest. It’s a very cool women’s only event which is happening this coming Thanksgiving long weekend (yeah, we Canadians celebrate our Thanksgiving holiday a month before Americans).

The Unholy Army’s early goal was to queer kinky spots by inviting a critical mass of lesbians to play spaces on quiet nights. Building on that success, St-Urbain and co-organizer Andrea Zanin launched Unholy Harvest in Ottawa last year. It’s a weekend getaway for lesbians and transfolk into BDSM (bondage/discipline, dominance/submission, sadism/masochism.)

To read the complete article and more about this event, check out the Ottawa Xtra online version: “Leather Dykes Revel in Unholy Harvest“. And here’s a link to the website for the Unholy Harvest; weekend memberships are $110, contact them through their website to see if there are still any spaces available.

Montreal’s Labour Day “Fetish Weekend”

Montreal’s Fetish Weekend

Well, for those of you who are not local to Montreal; we are now in the midst of the second annual “Fetish Weekend”.

Actually I got a head-start by attending some Midori workshops in Ottawa last week. Tonight there is a Midori latex workshop being held before the usual Club Sin Fetish Friday event; I am only going to to the Fetish Friday — I prefer to see the Rope Diva talking about rope, her talking about latex just doesn’t do it for me.

Saturday the 3rd will be the really big day for us. Master Michael and I have tickets to attend the two Midori workshops and play party at Le Chateau. The first is “Psychology of Rope Bondage” and the second is “Humiliation & Embarrassment”. We are hoping to go out to dinner after the workshops and before the play party; which should have a really good crowd that night!

On Sunday night, there is a “Freak Show” being held, but I’m not too sure I want to attend — the DJ is one that I don’t care for because he always blasts the music soooooo loud that you end up having your ears ringing. I really have a problem with going to a club and coming out with some long term hearing loss, so I will probably give it a pass… Otherwise, it sounds kinda interesting.

BTW, if any of you are interested in any of these events and are in Montreal, you can check them out on the Club Fetish BDSM & Fetish events calendar that is on my other site.

Anyways, hope everyone has lots of kinky fun this weekend, I know I will!

Review: Exclusive private Dungeon launch party

Bound and Blindfolded

Here I sit on a quiet Sunday evening (July 10th), propped up with tons of comfy pillows in my waterbed, sipping my Lady Gray tea out of my favorite porcelain dragon mug; quietly listening to my Zen music collection. I have my Tibook laptop with me, and two cats curled up on either side of me, as I ponder Saturday evening’s activities… and so I shall share them with you now my dear reader…

A few weeks ago, I had been invited by a well-known Montreal cross-dresser named Jules, to attend a very exclusive private party for the launch of a new dungeon. If any of you have watched the “Kink” series on Showcase, Jules was one of the main characters that they covered during their Montreal series, which was shown last year. In it, we got a partial view of the industrial shop that would eventually be converted into the dungeon that I would be visiting.

Due to a few last minute incoming phone calls, I was a bit late in getting out and despite Mapquest directions, got a bit turned around, but finally found my way to the address that had been indicated. So, I arrived at about 10:45pm. I was pretty sure that I was in the correct area, and as I parked my Saturn, it was confirmed by the sight of two latex & PVC clad kinksters getting out of their car and heading in the same direction. So much for subtlety…I had packed my leather corset into my shoulder bag – to insure a bit of discretion since it is in a predominantly residential area, secondly because driving in this corset feels like being in a body cast!

The heavy metal door seems quite imposing as it cracked open, to reveal two eager subs that greet us demurely. I feel immediately welcome, because one of them is sabine, the sub of Maitre Pierre & Mistress Catherine, with whom I had enjoyed a party just the previous weekend. We exchanged the traditional Montreal two-cheek kiss, and he gently asked “if he may” and delicately adjusted my heavy jeweled necklace to center it for me. What a sweetie!

I descended a small turning staircase and through a heavy barred jaildoor to enter the new dungeon. Wow, what a sight! The first thing that struck me was the sheer size of the room; it had very high ceilings that were easily 12-15 feet in height. The room itself must have been a good 50-60 feet in length and perhaps 20 feet in width. The walls were painted white and were lit with a few red and blue bulbs, giving a wonderful gentle illumination to the space — not too bright, but not so dim that you couldn’t play properly.

Just to the right as I entered, was a small carpeted sitting and conversation area, with a couch, a chaise-longue and a few wooden armchairs. Above it was a decorative shelf featuring some of Jules’ exotic shoe collection. To the left was a curtained area extending about 15 feet, behind which was a changing room/bathroom and some storage, and just beyond that was an area with a small fridge, coolers of drinks, and a table laid out with shrimp hors-d’oeuvres, crispy snacks and bite-size pieces of pizza, among other things. In the center area, just past the sitting area, was the first of several magnificent pieces of play equipment that were placed strategically around the rest of the dungeon.

As I waited my turn to be able to change into my corset and antique top hat, I spied sabine’s owners, Maitre Pierre and Mistress Catherine (also featured on Kink) and went to greet them and exchange a few pleasantries. I once again thanked them warmly for inviting me to their BBQ/Pool Party the previous weekend, as I had enjoyed myself immensely! I finally got a chance to change and felt immediately much more at ease. I wore my favorite black leather lambskin corset, with my “equipment belt” over it from which hung my thumbcuffs, handcuffs, and into which I had tucked my riding crop and black ostrich plume feather fan. I also wore a floor-length flowing black velvet skirt and my antique top hat — which I had trimmed for this occasion with a strip of red “vet wrap” to match the two red bands in my hair, which I had styled into a french braid and flowed into a long braid that extended past my waist, that was also tipped in red wrap, adding a colourful accent to an otherwise dark outfit.

I began to tour the rest of the dungeon, inspecting the imposing play equipment pieces in detail. The first was a large “inversion” piece that had two “stations” on it — the one on the end of the axle is a X cross, with holes for feet and face and a multitude of straps. The second is hung more in the middle of the axle and is a a seat to which a sub can be very securely strapped in, with their legs slightly apart. There is a large hand wheel at the opposite end, with which one can use to slowly turn the entire contraption, suspending and inverting the strapped-in sub. I got to see it in action later on in the evening and I must say that it is quite impressive. One heavyset sub had received a heavy spanking and flogging while suspended upside down, with her buttocks nicely presented at the perfect height. I also spoke to the two subs, who had each been in one of the two stations, and they were very enthusiastic about their experience. The heavyset sub has particularly impressed at how well she had been supported by the straps and mentioned that she had felt extremely comfortable the whole time — which of course meant that she could concentrate on the sensations being given to her by the Top. Most people had been holding back and simply admired the equipment, but once Jules had strapped in the sub to demonstrate the inversion piece, they loosened up and started playing with their subs on the various pieces of play furniture.

About mid-way in the room, there was a huge metal suspension frame, complete with electric winch to lift the overhead suspension bar. Quite a few of the subs present were practically salivating at the thought of hanging from it’s chains… Towards the far end of the dungeon, were several other pieces including: a very large and imposing wooden chair with rings and tie-down sections, a floor-level piece of furniture that featured many padded areas and supports to which a sub could be strapped in a head-down kneeling position suitable for spanking and paddling.

There was a pair of crosses attached to each other and leaning back-to-back for stability, one being a St. Andrews cross, the other the standard t-shape. There was also a long padded bench, a large wide leaning board with numerous cut-out sections and tie-down sections and lastly, a hanging wrought iron metal cage that resembled some medieval torture device in which a sub’s head and torso could be trapped with their legs hanging out of it. All in all, a very interesting collection of strong, stable and gorgeous play furniture, much better than anything I have seen to date!

All in all, I would guess that there was easily 40-50 people there at the peak of attendance and it looked like the “who’s who” of the Montreal kink community, many of whom were clad in either leather, latex or other exotic fetish styles. I got to see several of my kinky friends and acquaintances.

I didn’t have any of my subs with me to play that night, so instead I enjoyed numerous discussions with a variety of people, and ended up being one of the last to leave at close to 4 am (dawn had arrived). I did, however get a brief chance to speak to Jullianne (Jules’ Mistress and partner in the dungeon) regarding the possibility of reserving it in the future for a potential evening of fun for my new group, the Montreal FemDomme Society — that would be great! I’ll have to see how many people might be interested in such an outing and what the total costs would be to organize it…

Review: Friday the 13th Fetish Play Party in Montreal

Blue Dragon

Well, on Friday the 13th, I attended the “Fetish Play Party” at Montreal’s Club L’Eclipse, in order to check it out. It used to be held on the same Friday as the Club Sin events, so I had never been there, as I prefer Club Sin Fetish Fridays. They had also apparently changed the location to a different club from the old Stereo Bar.

I attended with my Dom partner, Master Michael, and my male sub jon. We arrived shortly before 11 PM and the place was terribly quiet, with maybe 20 people in total with very few wearing anything remotely fetish-looking. Closer to midnight, more people started arriving, with more fetish type clothing, but still nothing tremendously impressive.

The bar itself was rather nice with very high ceilings, which proved good in reducing the smokiness of the air. When we arrived, two of the tables were encroaching on the dance floor, which nobody was using. It was only shortly before midnight that the staff moved the tables over (Duh!), which encouraged people to finally venture out to dance. The music was very techno/disco/pop with a very heavy backbeat that really didn’t change from song to song. It was a bit more light-hearted and cheerier than the industrial/techno/goth stuff they play at Club Sin, but got very tiring after an hour or so, as all the tunes sounded almost exactly the same.

Probably the only thing that saved the evening from boredom was the arrival of one of my very old friends, Master Peter (whom I’ve known for over 15 years) and a local Pro-Domme, Mistress Yvanka. At least we were able to chat for a while to keep ourselves entertained.

All in all, for an event that promotes itself as a “fetish play party”, there was absolutely no play furniture or equipment and no places set off specifically for play. The atmosphere was not conducive at all to any play either. We only saw one Domme leading a male sub around in a rope bondage harness, and there was a very light 10 minute flogging in one corner – that was it for the night! It was most definitely a “see and be seen” type event, but even the level of fetish wear was very disappointing, especially since they advertised they had a fairly strict dress code and yet we saw several guys in check shirts or polos and a girl in a tube top and jeans. At least other clubs have a minimum “black dress” code, if you do not specifically have any fetish garb, so as to keep the distracting vanilla look to a minimum.

I walked around and did a final head count and there was a maximum of only 80-85 people in the club at it’s most busiest. The three of us were so disappointed that we left at only 2 AM. All three of us gave it a rating of only 5/10, and the only reason I didn’t give it a 4/10 is that the place was relatively smoke-free for a club. All I can say: “Been there, done that, wasn’t impressed!” I certainly wouldn’t recommend it very much to other local kinksters, unless it was right in their neighbourhood, as it wasn’t worth the drive.

Have you ever been to a BDSM or Fetish event that proved disappointing? What was it that failed your expectations? Do you have a “worst event ever” story? If so, please feel free to share…

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…
