Ireland’s Leather RULE Prevails

by Sir Dart
 Last month I had the unique pleasure of presenting in Dublin for Ireland's gay men's leather BDSM organization, RULE (Rubber-Uniform-Leather-Event). As the group is slowly establishing its place in the international community, they are expanding their endeavors by conducting educational demos and workshops. The event consisted of a 3 hour introduction to bondage workshop during the day, followed by their monthly dress code event that evening at a local venue. The class took place at the OUThouse (www.outhouse.ie), a prominent LGBT community resource center located in central Dublin.  Spaces were made for approximately 25 participants, and I was told it filled quite rapidly.  The workshop focused on rope bondage basics and safety, explored some very fun predicament scenarios, and was followed by hands-on practicing and plenty of time for Q and A. The guys were wonderfully enthusiastic and hungry for the information, and it was awesome to teach to a group that was so engaged and eager to learn. 
The bar event took place later that evening at the Turk's Head in Temple Bar, and was quite impressive, even though the members had tried to prepare me for something small compared to what I might see in the US. There was a total of 120 men that attended, the majority of which were decked out fully in leather, rubber, skin or military gear, and sports uniforms.  I thought this was a very successful turnout, given that it was a Sunday night and the weather was exceptionally damp and cold. All were fully engaged and enthusiastic…and there were even clusters of play that were taking place. Everyone was very friendly and outgoing. No pretention, no attitude. And best of all…NO talk of Old Guard or leather contest politics!

News to Abuse: – Eagle NYC Raid – Roll Call – Restraints 101

Eagle NYC Raid
The NY Times reports that an "unannounced inspection" was carried out by multiple agencies at the Eagle NYC on Friday night that coincided almost exactly with the new that the marriage equality bill had passed the New York Senate.
Police officials said on Saturday that the inspection was part of a routine operation planned long ago. But Scott M. Stringer, the Manhattan borough president, said that he was troubled by descriptions of what took place at the Eagle bar, on West 28th Street off 11th Avenue, and that the actions amounted to a raid.
“I am going to ask the police commissioner to conduct a formal investigation concerning the circumstances around this raid,” he added.
The inspection occurred late at night, Mr. Stringer said, and while it was “true that there are these multiagency inspections, I think this one was ill-conceived and ill-timed given the circumstances surrounding the marriage equality celebration, on Pride week.”
According to those present, about 100 people were mingling at the Eagle, when representatives from the New York Police Department and three other city agencies, as well as from the State Liquor Authority, showed up, at nearly the same time as a vote by the State Senate to legalize same-sex marriage and as the thrill of victory was swirling through the place.
“I was on the roof deck, smoking a cigar and having drinks with friends, and all of a sudden, the police showed up and started shining flashlights in everyone’s face and offending everyone,” said Thomas J. Shevlin, a financial markets researcher and the treasurer of the Stonewall Democratic Club.
“Basically, it is offensive,” Mr. Shevlin, 40, said. “It is real serious harassment that they come out on pride weekend.”
