Potential New Venue/Performance/Club Space. [15 Jun 2013|11:14am]

ext_2022484
If I opened a Performance Venue and club in the U District. What kind of response would we have? Could be used for just about any venue. What groups are looking for space to showcase? I want to cater to the alternate lifestyle groups ie: fetish, performers, BDSM, aerial, burlesque, fashion or many other groups. Will probably make it a membership based. Love to here your thoughts.

Hello? [20 Aug 2010|04:19am]

[ mood | curious ]

Ok, I see that there haven't been any posts here in a good long time but I'm hoping at least some people are still around and paying attention...I'm a sub girl and an absolute n00b wanting very very much to get involved but not quite sure how to go about doing it. Some people are telling me I should definitely go to some munches before I do anything more--any recs of where I can find some good ones? I'm looking at the CSPC site and some of that sounds like it could be good but I'm wondering what else is out there. Anything else I should know about the local scene? Thanks for your help.

Looking to meet some fellow kinksters... [21 Nov 2007|02:28pm]

johnnythecub
[ mood | awake ]

Heya, I'm Johnny, a transfag from SF. I'm up in PDX until Saturday morn. I'm looking for other queers to meet, hang out with, etc. Could just be coffee and fun conversation, or, as I am kinky as all hell if you're into leather, why not see if we have play chemistry? I'm a huge wrestling enthusiast as well and there's nothing like a good wrestling match to add fun in your world! I've been a part of the leatherscene for 4 years and love all kinds of play, but have been flagging black on the right the whole time as well.

Or maybe there's a great dance night in the area that all the queers meet up at? Any suggestions, kids? I'm an art student at the California College of the Arts, with a double focus in critical studies-queer theory and sculpture, so we could get our art geek on as well.

Also, if you know of any place that I could go to find other folks in PDX online, feel free to share.

Cheers and Happy Thanksgiving!

Johnny

Stand Up and Be Counted! [25 Sep 2007|01:27am]

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Stand Up and Be Counted!

Participate in the Survey of Violence & Discrimination Against
Sexual Minorities

September 19, 2007, New York, NY - Susan Wright and Larry
Iannotti would like to announce the launch of the second national
Survey of Violence & Discrimination Against Sexual Minorities,
being conducted in cooperation with the National Coalition for
Sexual Freedom. This survey includes all of the questions asked
on NCSF's ground-breaking 1998 Violence & Discrimination Against
Sexual Minorities survey, and includes new questions on personal,
business, and Internet discrimination experienced by BDSM-leather-
fetish practitioners.

The link to the survey is on NCSF's website: www.ncsfreedom.org

Please take a minute to fill out this anonymous survey even if
you have not been a victim of violence or discrimination.
Demographic data and information about participation in a variety
of BDSM-leather-fetish activities are also being gathered. This
survey will be distributed for one year, and the results will be
released in early 2009.

The results of this survey will be analyzed and compared to the
1998 survey, which found significant discrimination and violence
occurring against BDSM-leather-fetish practitioners. The data may
be used in court obscenity cases to prove that sexual minorities
have been chilled on the Internet because of fear of prosecution.
The survey also includes space for individuals to write about the
discrimination they have faced, which will be helpful in
illustrating the consequences of the negative stereotypes about
BDSM-leather-fetish activities.

The survey is available on Survey Monkey (a secured survey
hosting website that is used by the professional community) and
can be accessed through the NCSF website: www.ncsfreedom.org You
can contact surveybdsm@gmail.com to receive hard copies for your
event or to distribute to your members.

Please help this community-wide effort by sending this
announcement to your email list.

New to the area [16 Aug 2007|08:22am]

desolatedrose
Hello to A/all,

I just recently moved to the Seattle area from Montreal. It was my hope that I could attend some munches or groups. I don't really know anyone here yet, so a little advice would be much appreciated. From looking online, Y/you appear to have a decently sized community. What would Y/you recommend I look into here in Seattle? Thanks so much for any advise/information Y/you happen to give me.

Wetspot Uniform night [24 Apr 2007|10:06am]

porcupyne
Last time we went as cop and riot pony, and for our second go, we decided to try our pet play scenario. It was a great night, and very friendly. The music was awesome, we saw some great play in the main area, and we finally got a look at the library. We also got to have our own first bit of play in the back with our violet wand and ropes and such, making us feel much more confident about future play there.

Definitely a night to scamper to.

Social versus financial perceptions of tops and bottoms in society. [08 Feb 2007|02:28pm]

rubberbondage
[ mood | curious ]

(Cross posted from my personal Journal)

These are my perceptions of being a "Top" or dominant in contrast to being a "Bottom" or sometimes called submissive.

For the record I am what I refer to as a switch. I am a top/sadist and I am a masochist or bottom. I am not s submissive and I find people seem to get that confused, how can you be a bottom and not be submissive?

Back to the subject at hand.

Socially.
When interacting socially if I am attired in leather and assuming the persona of a Top I feel much better received. When I attempt to converse with others, they are more receptive and others will more readily initiate conversation and interaction with me.
When I am out and attired in rubber/latex and in general as a bottom I feel like I am dismissed, shunned or ignored by others.
Girls in latex = Hot and Sexy
Boys in latex = sick perverts
I think this may be associated with apparent American societal norms of boys as tops or dominants and girls as bottoms or submissives.

Financially it is a different matter.
I have a website http://www.rubberbound.com and when I post galleries about me topping and girls bottoming (other than Zo fully encased) I do not get any feedback and not generate many new subscribers. When I post galleries of Rubberboy getting tortured and fucked in the ass by Mistress Miyou it generates new subscribers and renewals. I also get feedback about how cool the site is.
I think this is because:
1. It is more taboo to be a male bottom
2. Most males fantasize about being dominated by a beautiful mistress.
3. Most internet porn is viewed by and purchased by males.

Photography and Modeling.
Modeling wise I get many more requests to model as a bottom than as a top, particularly those opportunities that pay. This may be because most porn with males in it as submissives are gay oriented and it is rare to find hetero male bottoms willing to be put in such compromising positions.

So my summarization is socially it is better to appear as a top or dominant, but financially it is better to appear as a bottom or masochist.

What do you think? Why do you think this is?

Topping from the bottom [05 Feb 2007|04:15pm]

lance_lake
I hate people who top from the bottom. I seriously do. People who come to me to be topped and basically set up the scene as they want and tell me what they want me to do to them.

I hate people like that.

The thing is.. Do I do it?

As those who read this journal know (I think I posted it), Barb is my top in the bedroom only now. Outside the bedroom, we are equals. I do love the feeling of not being lower then her when it comes to raising Mike and yet, having my submissive side be taken care of.... or is it?

She tells me she enjoys teasing and I'm a major fan of it. So occasionally, she will play with me for 5 or 10 mins. before bed. I'm grateful for this and I go to bed with a smile on my face.. most of the time.

But any requests I give, she complains that I'm topping from the bottom. Am I? I enjoy the feeling of cuffs around my hands and legs. Despite setting them up and ready to go (Velcro, so no messing with tying knots), I've only been in it once (and that was me tied up, given 10 swats for punishment and laying there alone for half an hour. Not exactly a fun time).

I want to beg for her not to tease me. I want to struggle against it. I want to really go all out one night for an hour or so and when she gets tired, tie my hands and attach a vibrator on super low and leave me like that all night to stew... Sorry.. Is it getting hot in here? :)

But it seems like every time I ask, she gives me the whole "Topping from the bottom" argument. The last time it happened (a few days ago), I told her I ordered a new locking pin for my CB (Chastity device) and that I hoped she would lock me in it when it got here. Perhaps I was trying to manipulate the situation and get my way... But shouldn't she be accepting of my knowledge of the fetish I (and according to her, she) loves?

When I was topping (and when I find someone that fits with my style of topping), I enjoyed hearing their interests and desires. I never gave them what they wanted unless they were good. But it was a good idea I thought to know where your submissives headspace is.

So I ask you. At what point does requesting your Top do certain things turn into Topping from the bottom? Does any request of that nature automatically make it Topping from the bottom and I should just accept what she is willing to do?

Cross-posted to a few groups I belong to.
