MAL 2014

After having to miss it last year, I was really excited to be able to make it to my first MAL this year. The weekend started rather late on Thursday evening, as we didn’t arrive at the host hotel until after 10 pm. While it was late, we got things going right away. After settling into the room, we went downstairs to have a drink in a somewhat busy lobby. Before leaving the room, my hands were quickly handcuffed behind my back. I remained that way for the entire duration of our time there, only being released after arriving back up to the room for the night. In only a couple of hours, I met several new people and enjoyed the company of several other old friends.

The next morning started with the usual healthy breakfast and a healthy walk. I’ve never been to DC before, so I was excited to see some of the monuments in the area. We also stopped by the Air and Space Museum. We grabbed a quick lunch before heading down to check out the market. I feel like I’ve seen just about every configuration of a leather market that there is to see now. At my first IML, the market consisted of one single room. My second IML had a market that was split between two floors. MAL had a market that is compartmentalized. The market spanned several conjoined rooms. A little later, I was fortunate enough to find myself tied to the bed with my arms spread and legs tied straight downward, keeping me in a ‘T’ position. This made it quick easy for a few friends to edge me for a while. Eventually, I was released… without release. After some dinner, we enjoyed an evening of mingling in gear down in the lobby.

Saturday started with a slow morning and breakfast. After lounging around the room for a short while and chatting, I was put into a neoprene sleepsack for round two of edging. This time, I was fortunate enough to have a kinder pair of hands take over at the end of the edging. After some time in the market and lobby, I had the opportunity to do something I haven’t done in quite some time: lose myself in some impressive rope work. It had been a while since I had been bound so completely with only rope, and it was fantastic.

Sunday, my final day, started off with a good breakfast. After some time in the market, I prepped myself for a play session with a young Dom that owed me a little revenge for some teasing at IML the previous year. I was expecting to be teased like I have never been before, but instead, I experienced one of the most intense bondage sessions of my life. This session had such an effect on me, that I feel I must write a separate post to cover the details. This post is coming shortly.

A Much Needed First

With 2013 in the past, it’s time to start fresh. For me, this means several things; one of which is bringing my kinky side back into the light. This includes a stronger focus on my kinky friends, kink events, and of course, this blog. Well, it just so happens that Mid-Atlantic Leather is coming up very soon, and I can't think of a better way to start the new year right.

I wasn't able to attend MAL last year, so this year will be my first time at this event. I'm hoping to make it an amazing one. This is sure to be a very much needed kink filled weekend. So, if you'll be at MAL, and you're a Dom looking for a sub, a sub looking for a buddy, a Top looking for a bottom, or even a bottom looking for a Top, shoot me a message! Never know what may happen. ;)

Disconnect

I'm sure it's been obvious through the lack of posts here: I haven't been myself lately. Life has been tough on me recently. Not since before I started this blog, have I felt so disconnected from my friends and kink. There have been a few times where I've been pushed to the edge, a couple of which the ground crumbled beneath me and sent me over. This post alone has taken me months to complete, bit by bit.

A while back, I lost one of the most important things in my life. It was hard at first, but it smoothed out. Then I was reacquainted with what I lost and began to feel the negative effects of not having it. After a couple months of this, and a rather dramatic weekend, I was informed that I'd never have it again. I was devastated. Nothing else has to be said regarding how I've felt, and how I still feel. The last several months have been among the most difficult of my life. I broke.

All of this happened while I worked to finish my education, moved back to my hometown, and began work at a new location that is several times more stressful than the previous one. It was about the same time that one of my best friends moved away.

All of that said, I have successfully graduated. A chapter of my life is over, and now, I just have to deal with that annoying blank page before the next chapter begins.

So there you have it. Aside from some key moments, 2013 was not good to me. I've tried my hardest to put on a pretty face, but my blog has suffered and I feel that I owe you all an explanation for that. It's a new year, and hopefully one with better prospects than the last. For me and for you. Thank you for your patience and Happy New Year!
