Think you have to spend hours studying Shibari to tie up your lover? Think again. That traditional Japanese style may be your cup of tea; it was never mine. Sure, I tried to copy the positions I saw in their magazines, before such workshops were offered in the west! And then I discovered the fusion ties of San Francisco’s Two Knotty Boys.
On April 8, my Danish friend Steen Schapiro screened “The Pain Game,“ my BDSM docu-film, as prelude to his new short, “Loops!” The soirée took place at Club Débauche in Copenhagen, thirteen years after my film premiered at Frameline in San Francisco. The next day I received several online orders from Danes who were at the screening and wanted their own DVD. Real connection and caring sadomasochism do not age!
I started this weekly blog four months ago. I hope you enjoyed some of my stories and found a bit of kinky wisdom there, one of the many gifts of experience.

Back in 1981, leatherwoman Cynthia Slater, founder of the Society of Janus, invited me to a party.
