Folsom Protesters

The Folsom Street Fair, “a feisty offspring of a distinctively San Francisco menage-a-trois of transgressive sex, community building, and grassroots activism,” attracts kinky freaks from around the world.\’a0 It’s an event that I truly love and a reality that I try to carry into my every day life.
\

\
Though there were many amazing and positive things to report on at the event, I’m choosing to post an interview with 2 of the 3 individuals protesting the fair outside one of the gates.\’a0 Ignorant homophobes like these used to really upset me (and sometimes still do) but recently I’ve found them extremely hilarious.
\

\
Just like I believe the Phelps use their anti-gay signs as an excuse to sing about explicit gay butt sex (see photo from June 16th Protest), the Folsom Protesters used their “No Public Nudity, No Street Orgies” sign as an excuse to stand at the entrance and watch all the half naked kinky queers walk in.

Rope

The Epic Hemp Rope Treatment Video

Recently I was gifted with some lovely sets of Twisted Monk’s Vegan Organic Hemp Rope and since have had a number of awesome experiences with them.\’a0 I love them so much that I was inspired to treat my own raw hemp rope and document the process.
\

\
I let a few of my rope mentors know about this (Madame and Mr. Madame Butterfly and Lew Rubens) all of them said, “It’s good that you’re going through the process once, then you’ll realize why people charge so much for it and you’ll have no problem paying them.”
\

\
They were right, it is a very laborious process and I don’t think it’s that much cheaper then just ordering it from the rope treatment professionals. I don’t regret doing it and think I might do it at least one more time. If you’re as obsessed about ropes as I am and can make some extra time, I’d recommend going through the process for yourself. If not, stick to Twisted Monk’s ropes, they’re awesome.

Steal a camera, Make Queer Porn- Wendy Delorme Interview

This weekend I snatched an interview from French writer, performer and porn star Wendy Delorme outside of The Center for Sex and Culture. Original Sin, the event held there that night, included a line up of notable hot kinky queers and screened a short erotic film, The Apple by Emily Jouvet starring Wendy.

You can see more of Wendy in Emily Jouvet’s feature One Night Stand and if you read French, check out her book Quatri\’e8me G\’e9n\’e9ration (she’s looking for an English publisher so her English speaking fans can read it too.) Wendy is returning to Paris but hopefully she’ll come back soon with more amazing work.
