Just ran across this older photo from San Francisco around July 2012. I’m the boy in the Leather Straitjacket. Another version of the photo in my blog banner above.
It had been a VERY long time since I had done a public scene like this. I had a bad experience with a inattentive Bondage Top about 12 years ago. That experience sort of damaged my ability to trust others with total control over me in a public setting such as this. Yet, I still craved this sort of fun years later. Some fantasies just don’t go away.
Time goes by fast and so do opportunities like this. “Up Your Alley” Fair (Dore Alley) was approaching and I knew this Leather Top that would be attending the event. He was (is) a close friend that I trust and thought “worst that could happen is that he’d decline”. Man, it was still difficult to type out the question! After getting my dorky nervous message… he replied “It would be my pleasure to have this experience with you”. 🙂
That day came and I sort of expected myself to back out but he was great with taking control by making solid plans on when to meet and what to wear. It all happened so naturally and we had a great time. This day was very special to me and will always be one of my favorite moments as a Leatherman. Not just because it was a hot scene with an even hotter friend in full BLUF Gear (WOOF!)… but, because I pushed past the hurt and got to live out a fantasy once again.
