I think he did!!!
Still going through old external hard drives. Today I found some photos from a very sweet scene at IML 2010.
I was working at the Mr S Leather booth at the time doing demos. I also had my camera with me. This fascinated boy had never been in bondage before and asked to be in a Neoprene Sleepsack. We started with just a blindfold. As you can see from that great big smile… he loved it. Eventually, he asked for something more intense so we offered the Isolation Hood. He zoned out for some time there just relaxing in the bondage.

Below is a post and major announcement from Pablo Greene, author of the kinky superhero book series How to Kill a Superhero.
Sometimes, I have felt like kinksters don’t take superhero fetish seriously.
But I don’t like to think on negative terms. I like to take action instead of complaining.
At first, just a few people turned out to meet up. They wore their best cosplays, they laughed, took photos together. Some even hooked up or fell in love.
And over the years, it grew, and grew. Other members of the community continued to create superhero meetups I couldn’t attend, and I encouraged them to do it, to keep the energy of the movement going. Brian Bolt Donner was one of these key organizers. Thanks to his efforts and energy, he also created superhero fetish gatherings, dance parties and other events that generated community. This work would not be possible without him.
I am happy to announce that IML has made the Superhero Fetish Meetup an official event in its lineup. It’s going to be LIT.
POW! The Superhero Fetish Meetup
Description of the event on IML’s web site:
May 28, 2-4 p.m., in the Congress Hotel Lobby at International Mr. Leather.
- Heroes and villains will face off at POW!, the dynamic event that unites the superhero fetish community at IML. Gear yourself up in superhero spandex, rubber or leather (as well as scales, robot armor, or fur) and come meet friendly kinksters who dig tights, capes and superpowers. This is a judgment-free event, and all levels of cosplay are appreciated, including capes.

Throwback Thursday to a time long ago when a lot of photos had a time stamp on them.
This was at IML 2004. I had just gotten a “Joe Rocket” leather racing suit from eBay and wore it a lot over that weekend. This was the first time that I had ever geared up so much that nobody knew it was me except for our roomie, “DCKidnap”… and the SIR I started flirting with while in the suit. I actually got off in the suit while humping his leg in the lobby of the Hyatt.
You may not be terribly thrilled about the title of this video… but, as Gay Leathermen (and women) we must have a sense of humor about ourselves.
Many thanks to IML 2015 Patrick Smith for being a part of this fun video.
