Fetish Week London, and why I almost didn't go.

The title already gives it away: I am going to London again in July, during Fetish Week (well, the last weekend). I'm staying a full week in London after that, making this my "official" summer holiday since I don't have money to go anywhere else! Of course the real reason is that I want to spend more time with Sir, since he won't be there during Fetish Week.

This trip has been on my mind for at least a month, trying to decide whether it's worth it, weighing the pros and cons, and internally debating the emotional and rational arguments.
There were three big reasons not to go this time. Sir won't be home during Fetish Week... ultimately maybe not that big of a deal, since I'll be seeing (or hoping to see) a few friends at the events I'll go to. But it would've been really nice if he was there to go with me. Plus it will feel weird to stay at his place but without him being there. He also said he probably won't have a lot of time for me, which is obviously a good reason to choose another date to come over...
Secondly, my attitude towards Fetish Week in general. I said this before, I'm not that much into gear, and I'm not into cruising. When I go to kinky places, I want it to be with friends, and I want to get some play. Basically, 95% of Fetish Week isn't for me. I'll probably just go to the Fetishbound, Collared and some shops, and that's it. I can do that combination 12 times a year. Plus everything will be busier in July, which I also don't like. I would say this is the biggest reason for not going... (but wait! There is a counter-argument for this in a few moments!)
  Lastly, finances. I won't bore you with the details but as it stands now it's quite possible this will be my last trip to London this year. Though if I can manage to stop buying Lego I might scrape together enough to do another trip hehe.

So why did I decide to go after all? Well, emotional reasons, I guess. London is becoming my second home, where my second family lives. Any opportunity to visit them is a good one.

As for going during Fetish Week: it will be busy, yes, but there will also be tons of people attending FetishBound I never (or hardly ever) get to see face to face but know from twitter or recon or whatever. TSkin will have his complete pack with him, there will be people from all over Europe (looking forward to seeing Trikoot again for example) and obviously all the FB regulars hehe. I'm not the most sociable/talkative person (far from it really!) but it's always nice to see familiar faces, and have a sense of community, if you know what I mean. That's important to me. And at FetishBound I definitely feel more at home than any other kink event.

That's about it. Now that I booked my tickets, it's important to try to leave the doubts and any negative feelings behind, and go there with a good mindset. I'll probably have one or two more blog updates about this before I leave.

Blogger policy update

I guess most of us got the mail about a new policy Google is enforcing for adult content bloggers, if not, here it is:

Important Update to Adult Content Policy on Blogger

You are receiving this message because you are the admin of a blog hosted on Blogger which is identified to have Adult content.
Please be advised that on June 30th 2013, we will be updating our Content Policy to strictly prohibit the monetization of Adult content on Blogger. After June 30th 2013, we will be enforcing this policy and will remove blogs which are adult in nature and are displaying advertisements to adult websites.
If your adult blog currently has advertisements which are adult in nature, you should remove them as soon as possible as to avoid any potential Terms of Service violation and/or content removals.
The Blogger Team

 So basically you have to remove any ads/banners/whatever that link to "adult websites". I'm a little pissed off about this, more restrictions are hardly ever a good thing, but at the same time, I've seen "blogs" that are really nothing more but walls of ads to sex sites and shops. This new policy is probably mostly to counter those people, but since this is Google they'll probably use the big broom and delete every blog that even has the smallest hint of ads/monetization. On the other hand, their turf, their rules, if you don't like it, there are always other options.

Related to this, a friendly reminder, you can back-up your blog and save all your entries and comments. On the main blogger page, go to settings - other, and under blogger tools you can see "export blog", click on that and then download. The file will be saved as an XML file, so it's easy to import it to another site or blogging service. I recommend doing a back-up regularly anyway.

Regular updating will resume shortly!

Sauna visit and birthday spanking

CPHmaster (who is my master's big bro, so technically my uncle!) had some time between flights during a stop-over in Brussels, and we arranged to meet up. He remembered visiting a very nice sauna in Brussels a few years ago, so he suggested going there again.

The sauna, Oasis, is huge and very beautiful. Almost worth visiting just to admire how great this place looks. Just look at the pics on the site... and upstairs it has about 20 little rooms for private and less private fun. From basement to attic, it's clean and has a great interior.
But my favourite part was definitely the dungeon, a dark room in the basement that has heavy iron bars as a door. It was open and we couldn't close it, which was kind of a shame hehe. They had a room with a vault door as well. You could have a little kinky party down there...

However, as I suspected a gay sauna isn't really my thing at all. I appreciate that it's just guys, and no need for any shame, but the whole cruising thing is not for me. As I said before, "vanilla" gay sex (sucking and fucking) is boring to me, I'm only interested in kinky stuff. And even then I need to have a sort of connection with the other person for it to be fun for me. (yes I know, I'm very much "special needs"!)

The visit was really only fun for me because I was with CPHmaster. Chatting and relaxing, I felt very safe with him. We had a little bit of play as well... and I got not one but two birthday spankings! I'm such a lucky boy hehe.

He took a picture after the last spanking, and I thought it was too pretty not to share with you guys:

That's it. As for the next kinky event, I'm still trying to decide whether I should go to London for Fetish Week or not...

May London visit: the pics

I promised to post some pics from my London visit last month, but apparently the ones Sir took aren't worth posting, so here are the ones I do have...

From Fetishbound: suspended by TSkinBoot, and then licking boots under smse14! 

More pics on the Fetishbound site...

The next two were taken when I was back home, and you can see the damage I took by the hand of evil masters...

The last one is the result of a flogging I had at FetishBound by TSkinBoot... I don't think the marks were meant to be this bad hehe. The marks weren't a problem but I think we were both surprised how it looked after a couple of days. Probably not something we should do during the summer hehe. 

That's all. More updates coming soon...
