CLAW 2013 from my iPhone’s point of view

Here’s a few photos from CLAW 2013 from my iPhone’s point of view.

CLAW is a very interesting Animal. The sense of Brotherhood and Family you experience at this event is a bit different than IML or MAL because there is *NO CONTEST*. You heard me, NO CONTEST.   It’s very relaxed. No rushing to contests.  But, also like those 2 events, it’s very much a big Family Reunion. You see a lot of people from different clubs around the world come together and see each other for the first time in perhaps years. And of course, there are the Kink Event Virgins (that was a great T-Shirt), that are very much welcome and leave a bit more confident and accepted regarding their interests in Kink.

I had the pleasure of hanging with a couple of “Virgins” as well as running into FOUR of my Icon Detroit Brothers that I had not seen in many, many years.  That was really special to me.  They haven’t changed a bit.

The classes are a lot of fun. From Pain Play (Flogging) to the Aphrodisiacs Foods Class which was run by my “Uncle George” (I won’t call him “Daddy” he gets pissy when I say Auntie George 😉 ).

I know the work and sacrifice that goes into organizing a volunteer based Kink Event and I gotta say I am truly impressed how much CLAW has grown. The guys who run CLAW, Dennis and Bob, and their countless obviously appreciated volunteers do an amazing job running a *VERY WELL ORGANIZED* Kink Event.

Thank you. Thank you. Thank you for an amazing weekend.

Puppy Play was very,  very big this year at CLAW this year.

Ya gotta have a sense of humor in the Kink Community. 
This guy got a lot of attention.

I was in awe of this poster at the Leather Dinner 
and Leather Hall of Fame ceremony.

Hey, Look! It’s Me and the other “Ruff” in Chicago, Pup Ruff, from Great Lakes Den.

DINNER!!!  What a great meal, too.

Bye, CLAW!   See you next year!

Additional MAL 2013 Photos

2013 was my… (gasp!)… 15th visit to Mid-Atlantic Leather Weekend.   I always joke around that I can’t decide which I enjoy more, IML or MAL, with whichever being next as my Favorite.  Besides having amazing BDSM/Fetish Sex at the events, there’s also a great deal of hilarity amongst the people I attend these events with.   This year’s MAL is going down as one of the *FUNNIEST* Kink Events I’ve been to.  I left DC with a huge smile on my face. I’m still smiling days later.


Laughter and Humility is the key to great relationships and experiences.


I’m going to hold back from stating names as I know they’re all readers and would rather not be incriminated for being such Sexy Goofballs.  Instead, below are a few photos that were taken over the weekend as well as a ridiculous video we took while a little drunk.   If you’re super religious and easily offended, don’t watch the video (although, I’m sure you’ve watched worse on X-Tube!).

* I actually uploaded this to X-Tube but they removed it saying I violated Copyright Laws.  So, apparently, the Gideons (who leave bibles in hotels) don’t want their products on X-Tube?
She wouldn’t tell us where she got that Pin.

This photo sorta sums up any Kink Weekend, doesn’t it?

Boys will be boys.  Dancing DCBOL.

“You need to keep your Boots on
ALL weekend if you want to have any Sex”.

“I have Wool Sock String caught
in my Teeth now. But, It’s worth it”.

Oh, No. Go right ahead and paddle him 
in the Lobby. It’s cool. It’s MAL!!!

Doing my best “NYC Douche” look quickly for a friend in NYC
who couldn’t make it. Texted it in hopes he’ll come next year.

 That’s a Key to a Steel Chastity Device. Not a Rosari.

RAWRRRRR!!!!

Sunday Night at MAL 2013.  Nuff’ said.

Somebody needs a trip to the Dry Cleaners.

I’m innocent. Not mine. REALLY.

>;-)

“Do you carry anything Larger?”  

 

Like I said…

Laughs, Smiles and Sexy Goofballs.

Some boys just need a Day as a Dog to make things right

Pup Iota’s day at MAL 2013

Mid-Atlantic Leather Weekend is another Kink Event where you can live out fantasies.  I have this cute Puppy friend named “Pup Iota” who obviously needed a little push (Kick?) to do just that.   Seeing that need in him, the need to be Puppy, I asked if he’d like to wear my Leather Chastity Shorts.  “SURE!”.  Ok. Good.  How about the Leather Puppy Hood?  “… Yes!”.   Great.  Add Monster Knee Pads, Puppy Bondage Mitts, Neoprene Collar and Leash… and we were off to the Leather Market for a day of fun.

I was a very lucky Handler that day.  Besides having beautiful expressive eyes that peek out of the Puppy Hood, he’s also very responsive, tough and downright hilarious as you can see in the photos.    Puppy Play hasn’t been a big thing for me in years.  But, playing with him sure made me see the fun in it again. Watching him go deep into the submissive Puppy Headspace was a turn on for both of us.  (Especially judging by the amount of Pre-Cum in the Leather Chastity afterwards)

Check out the Photos and Videos of his day as the Guard Dog of Mr. S Leather at MAL.

Once we arrived at the Mr S Booth it was… 

“OK, Pup. Go Play!!”.  

He was in Pup Headspace a good 5-6 hours.

Oh, Good. He found a Play Mate.
I would have never guessed him to be an Alpha.

Keep your Dogs hydrated.  I love this version of the
Puppy Hood. It encourages the Pup to be very… Oral.

Pets and Scratches from Jack.  Had I let him, Pup would have followed him around all day…

A little advertising.
WHAT!?!?  Dogs can’t play Piano!!!


Watch your Nipples around “Ella Fitzgerald”.  

Lady, you need a Nail Trim.
No Kennel around, I put “Pup Iota” into a 
Leather Sleepsack for some rest.

And, a little spanking and biting.  

He didn’t whimper… much.


Many THANKS to the Centaurs (MAL Organizers), Jonathon and the Mr. S Leather Crew for allowing “Pup Iota” to live out a fantasy of being a Guard Dog for a day. 

See you next year!   (or at CLAW/IML/Dore, etc)  

The Road to MAL 2013

Saw this at a rest stop along the Indiana/Ohio Turnpike yesterday on our drive in from Chicago to DC for Mid-Atlantic Leather Weekend.  Had a good laugh as we think this sorta sums up the event all together.

They’re available at nearly every rest stop in Ohio and Indiana so I’m thinking I’ll buy one on the way back to give away as a hideous prank gift.     Friends… you’ve been warned.

LOL!– “But, I’m a Top!”

I got a big laugh out of the comic below.   It remind me of a demo at Mr S Leather during MAL 2012 earlier this year.  “The Imp” and I had put this very confident, masculine, bearded and furry guy into a Neoprene Sleepsack after quite a bit of convincing.    He got ROCK HARD instantly and stayed that way nearly an hour eventually getting off.


But, as he was about to Cum, he yells… 

“BUT, I’M A TOP!!”

Credit to Pup Emry for the drawing that will become infamous in the Kink Community.
That was my favorite moment of MAL this year.  I later chatted with the guy online (“Scruff” app of all places) where he told me he was always under the impression that it was demeaning for a Top to have bottom interests.  That it’s something he should hide away from all boys as they wouldn’t take him seriously.  He now thinks that Mentality (Old Guard?) is total Bull Shit.  I agree.  

Never limit yourself to experiences.  You don’t know what you’re missing. Fuck what others think.



SIDENOTE: I do believe that’s an Irish Wolfhound, Richard.  It’s another sign…

Granted, there’s more events out there than I could possibly list for the Poll, here is the results of the latest poll on my Blog.  Not to sound like I’m speaking ill of the events, but I’m a little surprised how far down the list MIR and CLAW came into play but the other results are not terribly surprising.

RUFF THOUGHTS: MAL 2012 Photos

I didn’t take a whole lot of photos with my own camera this year as I was doing Demos (hands were busy) but here’s a few to share. 



They wanted to touch my Latex Shirt.  Which turned into a cuddlefest.  As I was leaving the other said “Girrrrrrl, can you see my legs in material like that?”.   Yes.

 Marc Sherkness – Carcione, Mr PW’s Leather 2012 and MAL 2012 Runner Up.

A “STARGATE” reference was heard many times that weekend.  


International Miss Leather, Sara Vines, is fucking hilarious and very sweet.  Loved her.

Need at Urinal at MAL?

Human Urinal Service Available at MAL

Last year over MAL weekend the PORTaURINAL was used by over 41 different men – many of them several times.

It sat quietly on the sidelines, being pissed in by men when they needed it, and then ignored when they were done.

This year the PORTaURINAL will again be providing this free public service at MAL.

If you are at the bar and there is a very long line for the bathroom,
If you and your buddies all need to piss at the same time,
If you are having a party and need extra facilities,
DON’T PANIC … use the PORTaURINAL and every drop will go down the pipe!

The PORTaURINAL has set a goal of swallowing 100+ loads of piss at MAL.
Follow @PORTaURINAL on Twitter for regularly updated times/locations where it can be used.
