bonus shots, June 2016

Updated

Here are some new pics that we did featuring yours truly with a couple of slaves.  Special Thanks to Slave W and Slave G for being my submissives.  Slave X was behind the lens on some of the shots and, for the other ones, a timed camera and tripod did just fine.

The black and silver N2N singlet is a good go-to uniform for dungeon work.  To me, this one is even better than that other red one that I have.  It's practical, comfortable, breathes, and the colors are sporty yet give off a cartoon villain/bad guy vibe (in other words:  perfect).  If I can't figure out what to wear for a session, it's good to know that I can just grab that sometimes and not have to think about it.  Good, done, off we go.

I would like to get a haircut soon but the upcoming Summer 2016 Gallery--which we're going to start working on at the end of July--is sort of a beautiful, wicked horror/fantasy story meets Japanese anime meets "Bram Stoker's Dracula" meets fairy tale meets freaky Euro S&M film that you shouldn't be watching kind of a thing (you'll see what I mean later this summer....) so I think that I should stick with the longer hair until we finish off that project.  Vampires and gothicness and so on. (is gothicness even a word?  no.)  I need to look like an evil, dark king for that one so the hair needs to stay as is and keep on growin' in the meantime.  After that, I can go back to looking like Johnny America but not right now.  Gothicness for right now.

Again, thanks to my slave men for this random, why-the-fuck-not? photo shoot (we'll do another one soon, I promise).....

to Slave X:  The mosquitoes in the woods weren't that bad.  You'll be fine.

to Slave G:  I actually preferred the pics where you're in the boxer shorts instead of the blue jockstrap.  That surprised me too.  I thought that the boxer shorts might look stupid but--with the leather mitts that you have on--the image is cool, it's different, unexpected, and it works.  It's sorta cute/strange in a pajama party/bondage party kind of way.  I like it!

to Slave W:  Thanks for doing great as ever and your gear is awesome.  The lights made our scenes look "spooky" even though we did those shots at 3 pm on a sunny afternoon.  I'm always okay with spooky.  Plus, beating your ass never fails to make me happy.






















a Tom of your very own


The good folks at Artsy are selling original Tom of Finland works from the 1960's so, for those of you out there who are superfans of Tom's creative output (which I know that plenty of you are.....), consider grabbing yourself a slice of erotic history.

Having a Tom in your collection would definitely add some legit spice to the inventory, that's for sure.....

unforgettable expression


There's an old expression that I came across the other day--it's either German or Russian; I've tried looking it up online and haven't had any luck finding its origin--that replaces the more common American expression for "carrot and stick".

"carrot and stick", in case you didn't know, refers to balancing/negotiating rewards with punishments.

This other expression, however, instead of "carrot and stick" is......

....."whip and cake".

 Or "cake and whip".

Same meaning but different choice of words and imagery.

I like this "whip and cake" better than "carrot and stick" even though "carrot and stick" is still pretty good but "whip and cake" is just a really, really good expression.

Perfect for BDSM.  "whip and cake", yes indeed.   hahaha

typical updating


Over the next week or so I'll be making some slight alterations to my main website and to this blog (and getting rid of the outdated fetish events postings, on this blog, that have already come to pass from earlier this year).  Nothing major, just some subtle updates, deletions, and improvements.  I typically do this kind of thing every 6 months or so.

I'll also be posting some bonus pics (traditional BDSM stuff--nothing too high concept) on here next week too.

Although, yes, I'm the Master and the Dom, I just wanted to send a big, fat THANK YOU to......

* my slaves and clients (of course, obviously, goes without saying)

* you readers who enjoy this blog

and

* the very willing guys and girls who've posed as my submissives for photo shoots in the past, and those of you who are scheduled to participate on shoots coming up, and, also, to you creative Chicago folks who've done photography and design assistance for me.

Submissives are typically the ones who show the most gratitude but I, as a professional BDSM Master, want to make sure to tell you gentlemen and ladies how much I deeply and sincerely appreciate you.

Short Spank: Team Work


Remember, submissives......

Your Master or Mistress could tie you three ways to Sunday, beat you for an hour straight, and order you around until the morning comes but, if you're not putting your own amount of oomph and enthusiasm into the session, then you're doing yourself a disservice in the long run.

My slaves are really good about this sort of thing (thanks, my good men) but I was at a dungeon party recently and I saw a couple of extremely lazy slaves--not my slaves; other peoples slaves--barely following their Doms' orders while the Doms were doing all the heavy lifting.  BDSM, as you know, is a collaborative process.

Obviously we Doms are in charge of the gear, logistics, and orchestrating during a scene but some of you slave boys and girls have to make sure that you're putting in effort too.

Karnies


Just because IML is over with (it was great--the toy and gear creators are some very brilliant, sharp people always coming up with new designs and concepts, the attendees were sexy, etc., etc.--IML is getting bigger and better every year, isn't it?) that doesn't mean that you're suddenly deprived of fetish events to attend.

There's always something going on somewhere these days and that's a beautiful thing.

One of those somethings, Kinky Karnival, will be happening in Wichita, KS from June 10th through 12th.

The link to Kinky Karnival is right HERE

Classes, play parties, vendors, presenters, and all the good stuff that you want.  Men and women, kink, fetish, leather, bondage, straight, gay, bi, trans, whatever.

They're planning on doing a Kinky Karnival parade which is something that I've never heard of before when it comes to a fetish event but I think that it sounds like a really good idea.

coming later


Of course I look ahead when it comes to the upcoming photo projects.  There's lots of minutiae to them so I don't really have much of a choice--I've gotta pre-plan at least to some degree.

I'm happy with the way that the Spring Gallery came out.  It's silly and over-the-top but that's the way it's supposed to be.  Aliens and such.

The Summer 2016 Gallery is going to be a whole different kind of thing.  I've already scheduled the models for it, those who will be playing the submissives.  This isn't counting the bonus shots that we have coming up soon (June and July).  The Summer Gallery will be here on this blog in August.

The Summer Gallery is, well......

I don't want to give too much away about it--I'll talk more about it next month but I've got to get ready to go to IML market in a few minutes.

But I will say that the next gallery is going to be very cool and it's a dark (but tantalizing) bedtime story for adults called "Royal Treatment" and it's sort of a twist on "Alice".  The locations, gear, and models (men and women) are going to be great.  I'll be a BDSM version of the King of Spades (spoiler alert:  he's a mean dude).  That's all you get for now.

Eye Em El


Have a good, safe time during your International Mr. Leather aka IML weekend.  It's fucking great that we Chicagoans get this event every year.  We're lucky.

Play, meet new people, connect with old friends, and get some nice gear!

Spring Gallery 2016









Photography by Little Baby Jesus and sockslave (with some additional work done by Mr. P.E.T).  Concept assistance and design assistance provided by Saber3Ernesto.  Thanks for your time and for being good sports, guys.

I, Master Aiden, am all the bad guys in these photos (needless to say).  Mr. P.E.T. is the submissive/"wayward" captive.

Here is our ridiculous set of photos for our Spring Gallery this year.  Enjoy!
