News to Abuse: Taboo Play – Leather History – MAL Judges

Mollena Williams:  Taboo Play, and Working Through Extremes Leathermen's Discussion Group program on Wednesday, August 24, 2011, 7:30 – 9:30 pm at Blow Buddies Upstairs Community Room, 933 Harrison Street in San Francisco, CA. If you have ever had a scene that lured you with the promise of edgy intensity, but wondered if you could handle the situation before, during or afterward, this discussion is for you. We will explore the reasons some people enjoy play that is very edgy psychologically, emotionally and physically, and how you can go about making that fantasy a reality.  Inherent in this discussion is the level of responsibility of both/all partners, how to manage risk, and how you can support your partner in the aftermath.  Edgy play can be hot, and we will look at ways to avoid some common pitfalls, as well as how to recover with grace and honor when things go off of the planned path. PLEASE BE ADVISED:  Some highly controversial scenes (i.e. racial or incest play, weaponry, etc.) will be discussed.  Please do not attend if these are outside of your comfort zone. LDG programs start promptly at 7:30 p.m.  Leather, gear or fetish wear always encouraged, never required.  They advise arriving early as seating is limited. More info on the LDG website […]

On The Front Lines of Safer Sex

 Check out this recent article by Will O'Brien in Metro Weekly about MAL 2009 hottie Matt Bamford.When it comes to the local LGBT community, it's fair to say Matt Bamford is a bit of a celebrity. After all, he's Mr. Capital Pride Leather 2009 and the reigning Mr. Mid-Atlantic Leather.In April 2009 — having just moved to D.C. from Alaska the year prior — he was not so well known, and certainly not to Dr. Terry Gerace, who headed to Ziegfeld's/Secrets in search of some models for a new safer-sex education effort he was launching."That's the story of my life: right place, right time," Bamford says. "I was bartending at Secrets. He had come in to look for some good-looking men and was wearing this 'FUK!T' shirt. I thought, 'Wow.'"It's the same word that's likely passed countless lips as they view the result: Bamford and other locals in a sexy and edgy safer-sex campaign running online as a component of The Center's HIV Working Group. The campaign runs under two banners: TOOLK!T for the younger crowd, FUK!T for 21 and older. […]
