If you follow my blog or check-in on my other Internet real estates, you probably know that I watermark all of my images. The obvious reason is to discourage copyright infringement. I work in a place where copyright is a very important topic, so it makes sense that I would take at least basic steps towards preventing unauthorized sharing. That said, this isn't the reason I watermark the pictures on my profiles.

The fact of the matter is, I don't really mind if my pictures are shared. There is absolutely no getting around sharing when you post something on the Internet. The problem comes when someone decides they want to use your pictures as their own. I watermark my pictures to prevent what could be called "kink identity theft". I began watermarking my pictures the day I discovered another kinkster using my pictures on his profile, claiming they are of him, pairing them with overly raunchy and degrading profile text.

Kinky profiles, like 'Recon' or 'GearFetish', are a kinksters "resume". They are the first glimpse at a kinkster and his interests. I'm sure I don't have to remind you all how many words a picture is worth. These profiles are an extension of the kinkster they belong to. This is the real reason I watermark my pictures. It's a little extra work, but if you don't do this, I recommend you start.

A Little Fun in the Sun

There’s really nothing more relaxing than some quality down time in bondage, is there? A few days ago, I was fortunate enough to have a couple days of play with my good friend Flyboyfl.

The first bondage position I got into was like a blast from the past. I was hogtied with rope, fully clothed. While in such a simple, G-Rated tie, I looked down at the pile of leather bondage gear, and got a glimpse of how things have changed since then. It was quite an interesting experience. Then I was muzzled and the bondage became considerably less G-rated.

Shortly after, I decided that rope was in style for the day, and used it to securely hogtie my friend. The next day, we met an up-and-coming kinkster and gave him his first introduction to bondage. It’s always fun ‘showing someone the ropes’ and helping them join the community. I’m sure you all remember the feeling when you first saw bondage gear in person, rather than in a picture or video. That feeling is unforgettable, just like the expression on a new kinksters face when they experience it. :)

After what felt like a long morning, I decided a little rest and relaxation was in order. Just like last time, out came the straight jacket. I was told to put on the prison uniform again before I was strapped in. This time, a little extra was added. The canvas hood, made specifically for that straight jacket, was laced on and I was strapped down to the bed.

I imagine I slept for about an hour. When I woke up, I was being unintentionally teased by being made to listen to the sounds of another bondage scene happening across the room. I had to wait another hour before it was my turn...

New Orleans

At about 6:30 Thursday morning, I hit the road for New Orleans. This trip had one main goal: surprise. Months ago, Mr. Leather Colorado's partner began planning this surprise birthday party for him. We all made our way to New Orleans, got a birthday cake, snuck in when he was napping, and watched as he tried to say anything other than how surprised he was. Months of planning and straining to keep it a secret and success! But the real surprise was on us.

Moments after our 'hello's and 'how-are-you's, we were all thrown for a loop when our surprisee became the surpriser. We all stood and watched in speechless excitement as he got down on one knee, expressed his love for his partner, and proposed.

Crap... We got the wrong cake!

After that, we all proceeded to check out the city. Our first stop that night was a local bar, where we all enjoyed the evening out in gear, myself in my new harness. After making our appearance there, we ran back home and changed to go check out the scene on Bourbon Street. We spent the rest of the evening enjoying the bar and each others company. Hanging out on a balcony of a gay bar on the Bourbon Street of New Orleans with a group of awesome kinky guys felt like a once-in-a-lifetime experience, but I really hope I get to do it again. The next day started with a more detailed exploration of the French Quarter. After lunch, I may or may not have been hogtied, gagged, and plugged. ;)

Later that evening, we all went out for a big celebratory dinner with the group as well as a couple new friends before returning to Bourbon Street to get another taste of the local night life. The next day brought a bit more relaxation as well as another new friend. While watching this sweet guy get tied up, I got to play around with a little rope myself. We finished off the day inside, playing games and chatting partially thanks to a little poor weather, and I got to spend a little more one-on-one time with that sweet guy I mentioned earlier. :)

New Orleans is a city with a very rich culture and history that on its own is spectacular. Combined with an amazing group of guys, new friends, a little bondage, and most importantly - the power of love, the weekend was truly incredible! I can't wait to visit this city again! Hopefully I'll have some pictures coming for you soon. Finally, I want to send out huge thanks to the guys who were there and helped make the trip amazing. Of course, I also want to send out my biggest congratulations to the newly engaged couple. I'm so excited for you guys!
