Episode 228 – Clique Schisms, Part 1

Description of Show

In the heat of the end of summer, we are here to update you on the craziness of the last week.

 Show Notes

  • What Now? 
  • In the News
    • There was a death at a British kink festival in the woods, Flamefest. There were nipple tassles, witches, and hedonism.
    • Queer Cripple Andrew Gurza is building the group DisabilityAfterDark to open up about the intersection of disability and sex.
    • When introducing your pubescent children to sex, don’t for get anal intercourse. Don’t expect your school’s teachers to broach this topic appropriately.
  • With a Telegram chat message from a listener, “My leather club is having a midlife crisis?” we discuss cliques in the gay kink community.
    • Certain kinks and sub-communities draw certain age groups and personalities of people
    • Puppies are a great place for younger and less experienced kinksters to join, and some older guard groups  feel resentment for the loss of past ways boys would publicly join the leather community
    • Gender bending boys still see widespread ostracism from the leather community as well, even as attitudes improve
    • We must evolve for the future, we cannot hold onto purely past ways of doing things and expect them to carry into the future
    • Leather contests need to be brought into a modern day purpose
    • Certain traditions like collars are evolving and shouldn’t be used as a wedge to push new people out of the community.

About Our Guests

Erick Joseph, International Mr. Bootblack 2016

Erick Joseph is proud to have served the community as the first ever Alaska State Bootblack and now currently as International Mr. Bootblack 2016! His passion for bootblacking stems from his discovery of all things leather at the Alaska Center for Alternative Lifestyles located in downtown Anchorage, Alaska. For Erick, bootblacking is a fulfilling form of service to his community, as well as a way of helping others preserve the positive energy of their leathers. Most importantly, he enjoys the sexiness and connection that a good boot scene can encompass.

Erick’s goal throughout his title year as Alaska State Bootblack had been to cultivate the bootblack community in his home state by planting seeds of education while blacking at events from dungeon parties to steam punk conventions. In addition, he has bootblacked at every Imperial Court of All Alaska event he was invited to! As IMBB his goal is to bring a positive and FUN face to International Mr. Bootblack while having hot scenes in and out of the stands!

Erick enjoys traveling, meeting others, and creating bonds with community members for future endeavors. He describes himself as a dedicated, hardworking, loyal, and FUN Bootblack with a special interest in service and blacking from the lap.

He invites EVERYONE to come have a FUN year with him and Tigger as they spread the word of IMBB and IML across the world

Meghan Bootblack, International Ms. Bootblack 2016

Meghan is proud to represent her community as International Ms Bootblack 2016.

Since 2012 she’s been active in her local Kink and Leather communities, blacking regularly at The Barracks, ReMix and fundraisers throughout her region. At home, Meghan runs a Boot Lab for new and existing bootblacks in the area. She also serves as Treasurer for Mr. Friendly: Team Louisville, and is a full member of Titans of the Midwest.

Meghan seeks to create an experience in her chair that not only honors and worships your Leather, but also your journey. Bootblacking gives her the space to define her ideas of sexual expression and spirituality in ways that resonate deeply.
