6:27PM - Theres an idea!

10/14/06
Looking for an artist!!
Its been a long recovery since the dungeon folded and it will be awhile yet before I am fully recovered from what running that place took out of me.
The positive effects it had make me think it was worth it most of the time though and hopefully it will be less then a full year to be able to put it all to rest.
Meantime I have been considering various projects as I start getting my motivation back and last night I hit a zone with one of the ideas I had put on a back burner. It has the potential to make money with less investment then the other projects and while it wont reap the rewards of those bigger ones it wont take nearly as much to get it done either. That's about standard as the old adage is true, it takes money to make money.
Also if I can get it going and it is about the success I expect it will help fund the other ideas later on so its forward momentum. Most importantly really its a chance to work creatively again and use my brain more then the day job is allowing.
So I'm looking forward to it on that score also.

Anyone reading this if you know an artist willing to cheap or on spec send them my way. If its spec it has to be someone I feel I can really trust though and my trust isn't as easily given as it once was.

6:47AM - The Janet Hardy workshop at Diverse paths

Here's the bio:

Janet Hardy (aka Catherine A. Liszt and Lady Green) is the president
of Greenery Press Inc. Under her various pen names, she is the author
or co-author of ten books on sexuality, polyamory and BDSM, including
"The Ethical Slut," "The New Bottoming Book," "Radical Ecstasy" and
"The Compleat Spanker." Janet is a bisexual, polyamorous,
gender-flexible SM switch who has shared her lifestyle knowledge at
workshops and conferences internationally.


As for the presentations, the three you've chosen are all intense
demos, and I can't do three of those in one weekend (also, some of
the material overlaps). I'd suggest Integrating Pain and Sex, How To
Take More Pain..., and Ethical Sluthood. Here are class descriptions:

Ethical Sluthood
Participants will discuss and complete exercises to explore
lifestyles that go beyond the traditional monogamous model. Can you
maintain supportive relationships in a world where the only sexual
boundaries are the ones you set yourself? How do you feel secure when
your partner has a date (with someone cuter than you)? What is
jealousy, and can it be overcome? Come listen, talk, and learn about
how to build the lifestyle you want.

How To Take More Pain... And Get More Pleasure From It
Are you safewording too soon -- and regretting it later? Do you
hunger to experience that scary territory that lies just beyond your
limits? Janet will discuss and demonstrate techniques for entering
the ecstatic dimension of pain play. Whether you're a fledgling
bottom trying to understand the appeal of pain, an experienced
masochist trying to get more, or a sadist who wants to take your
partners further, this is a don't-miss class for you.

Integrating Pain and Sex
To look at your average kinky porno or SM workshop, you'd assume that
SM was as asexual as floorwax. But in our personal play, most of us
like to combine our SM with some form of genital sex. How do you ramp
up the sensation without losing the turn-on? Can pain be used to
boost orgasm? How do you create a mental state in which pain *is*
pleasure --- and vice versa? Come learn some sexy, nasty tricks and
techniques to bring the bedroom into the dungeon. Privacy level:
Total privacy. This class includes an intense demo.

dragon
DRAGON

You are the dragon. A dragon,
in western lore, is a giant lizard with wings.
It usually has the capability to breathe fire.
The dragon symbolizes immense power, physical
strength, and courage. The dragon has also been
a symbol of wisdom and of protection. Dragons
may also appear to be greedy as many a tale
depict them as keepers of vast hordes of
treasure.

4:49PM - These tests can be addicting.

<td align="center">Kindness


Kindness is most important in a boyfriend/girlfriend. You want someone who will go through everything with you - the best moments and the worst, and all of those other moments in between. You love to be able to say anything to your partner, and have them say anything to you. You are able to be extremely close with your partner for that reason.

11:00PM

Things are starting to gel.
I finally made contact with someone in the piercing community with the right connections and energy to start to bring that segment. Then I finally hear back from a news publication that they want to do an interview with me and of course Fakir. Turns out they delayed while checking backgrounds, dont know why people wont just take my word for it when I say its big.

The dungeon is looking hot with all the changes and the smokers will like the new pavilian that rage brought and pretty much all the staff helped put together.
And in the last few weeks while I have made contacts for putting together this event some new people are finding out about Diverse Paths and we have several new opportunities that I hope wil work out.
Finally several members have been bringing in new people, some of whom are staying and DP is better for it.
Just today I made contact with someone who was amazed we have an actual dungeon in OKC.

Now I just have to figure what I am going to say to the media. Think there ready to hear there is a dungeon here?

Current mood: Upbeat

6:02PM - Quiz


You fit in with:
Spiritualism



Your ideals are mostly spiritual, but in an individualistic way. While spirituality is very important in your life, organized religion itself may not be for you. It is best for you to seek these things on your own terms.


40% spiritual.
40% reason-oriented.

If you have questions let me know

5:07PM - Complex weekend

A lot went on this weekend.

3:00PM - Looking at the upcoming months

Sept sure is busy.
I was setting up a space for the summer vendor fair and looking at what other things are going on in the region I put out the best time I think i can for it.
But things in OK are lots more crowded then they used to be and its impossible now to work around everything and ha been for awhile.

Lets see we have
May:Master Jim and slave marsha which I hope has been advertised enough.
June: Barton whom I still need to get a bio and class descriptions from
July: Taipan and Lady Gold, need to get info on that but it wil have to wait a bit.
August and Sept no classes yet so better get off the stick and stop waiting on others to let me know what they are doing so we can reduce conflicts.
Oct: I am so looking forward to the Fakir Musafar and Cleo Dubois classes. The only catch is I need to get the word out on these people to those who dont know what they might be missing out on.
something like this in OK is just too rare and I dont want to screw it up for lack of advertising and promotion or let that one group screw it up in hopes to mess up my life.
Nov and Dec no classes setup yet and I probably should do a vendor market in this time frame.

Current mood: busy

12:21PM - First Frday weekend in May

First Friday went over very well, respectable crowd at the restaurant and several new faces came over.
The party as good also.
Saturday was of course small as I expected since there were at least 3 other parties gong on and with the big one for next week after the seminars. However it was very nice and active and since it was small afforded me the opportunity to play much earlier then usual.
I got to torture two at once, one a guest from out of the state and the other a local who offered to help keep my rep up as a sadist.
I think that goal was managed, both came but not until I was ready and had teased them sufficiently. One likes stingy toys so i got to pull out some I don't use very often like my buggy whip and braided cat which are fun to use, especially on breasts and genitals. Though I found plenty of interest in messing with her upper arms too.
The smell of burning flesh from the new zapper that Ms Toy sells was also to be had. Its an interesting little device similar to a flyswatter but improved in several ways. It makes a scary pop sound which can get the blood running, has a bigger arc and feels pretty intense though less so then my cattle prod (which also saw some use last night) so is a good mid range toy.
You will notice the smell of burning hair or flesh afterwards,though i haven't seen any marks on myself in testing. That smell also adds its mark to the scene, bottoms get kind of worried when they think your burning their landscape :)

Looking forward to the classes this month.

12:48AM - sniping and other frustrations

I built DP because I was looking for a place where people could be friendly and not have to worry about clues.
Despite no one at the place having real authority it saddens me to see there still cliques who target each other.
I know it was naive to hope it wouldn't happen but its a sad day anyhow and one less reason to keep the place open.
I don't know what can be done to stop them so I cant fix the problem and thats frustrating, so why struggle to keep things going?

On the other hand there are still good things and some not drawn into the drama and who manage to enjoy themselves by blissfully ignoring those few around them who cant get along. So maybe there is hope.
I have committed to Oct so must continue on regardless of the emotional cost.
Tomorrow is another day though and I look forward to an enjoyable evening and some upbeat time to recharge my batteries.

Current mood: depressed

3:24PM - My first entry

Well I heard about this from a couple of friend so decide to try it out.

I run a local dungeon and last night we had a good time.
I was graciously allowed to play with someone and this was our second session.
I used a few different things to keep it fresh and see how she reactedto different things.
The hardest part of the sesion was reading her since she was face down and alternately crying and smiling.
Her "Please no"'s are quite entertaining and its nice to push past them, though without quite getting a safeword or going to far.
I watched some other activities, including an intense fireplay session going on and they were good also.
I've come to respect that particular Top since shes been coming around. Though I had seen her before I never really got the chance to observe her in action.
