Phoenix APEX Intensive

Master Curtis and slave wen had set up the weekend for an intensive. I spent the week before this intensive visiting my Father while Jen stayed home working. We timed our arrival at the airport in Phoenix to within minutes of each other on Friday and returned home together this past Tuesday, as they had a club that met on Monday nights that wanted us to stay and present.

We did a string of classes from Friday to Tuesday for APEX, the Arizona Power Exchange. Archer and Tess run this, and we were staying at their house. I’ve known Archer for years, and like one another quite a bit. I’d not met Tess before. She’s a real estate agent, I believe.

Here was our schedule:

Friday Night

  • 7-9:30pm: Erotic Fire Play for (His) Fun and (Her) Pleasure

Saturday

  • 10–12: Understanding How Power Exchange Relationships can get into Trouble

  • 2–5: An Interactive Afternoon Exploring Foreplay as a Scene & Playing Hard with a Lady

  • 8-midnight: play party

Sunday

  • 11-1:00 Why are we Clashing Like This? Exploring Common Communication Upsets

  • 2–4 Avoiding Marshes and Bogs in Relationships – an Exploration

  • 7:30-9: Distinctions between “Leather” and “Not-Leather” for the MAsT meeting

Monday Evening

  • 7:15-9:30p: Using Protocols to Make your World Special

This was the best intensive we’ve ever put on. Partly, this is because I know a lot of people in the Phoenix crowd, and part is that Archer and Tess and Master Curtis and slave wen are particularly good at organizing the club members for events such as these.

I met Master Amy and slave mikey on Sunday at the MAsT meeting. This was one of the “stand-out” events of the weekend. He and I had a spark of soul-level recognition. I don’t know if anything will ever come of it, but to see him kneeling at Master Amy’s feet spoke volumes about who he is, who she is, and what their relationship must be. Really beautiful.

Upon speaking briefly with him after the class, I now realize that he is a dominant heterosexual slave. He is the first dominant slave I’ve ever met.

Australia

I met Master Joe and slave kim at Southplains Leather Fest last February. They had sat through my class on “Understanding how some M/s Relationships get into trouble” and later approached me in the foyer. He introduced himself and asked whether I might be interested in coming down to Melbourne, Australia, to do a series of presentations this coming September.

Well, I didn’t know this person, so I said that it might be possible and took down his contact information. After the conference, I wrote to slave Caroline and asked her about him. As it happens, she entered BDSM in Melbourne through Master Joe’s BDSM club, Chains. She knew him very well and said that if he had invited me over, he’d take good care of me.

As the discussions continued, it turned out that although they rented a home, there was a second small house in back of their main house. I would be staying there. Also, Herbert was able to arrange printing in Australia through all our books on Barnes and Noble. Although Amazon doesn’t have a print facility there, B&N does. I ordered literally hundreds of books, selecting titles beyond my own that I thought would sell. We set the date and I found myself in their delightful presence for 21 days.

Unlike in the US, Ausies are used to paying about $35 per seat per class. We averaged 20 people per class and I did about 8 classes. This was the weekend of Oz Kinkfest, so we had people in the right frame of mind to come to classes. Also, this was a crowd that bought books, so—overall—the trip was a great success.

We took a side jaunt up to Sydney in order to do another presentation and I met Peter Masters there. He’s a professor at University of Sydney and runs the best BDSM Wiki on the Internet.

Joe (sometimes with Kim, other times alone) took me to many interesting places. In Melbourne, itself, we went down to the heart of the city to see Gog and Magog who occupy a special place in Melbourne’s Royal Arcade—a very upscale mall in the heart of town.

These words are written beside the figures: “These two 7-foot giants have been striking the time on Gaunt’s clock since 1892. They were carved from clear pine and modeled on the figures erected in Guildhall, London, in 17089 to symbolize the conflict between the ancient Britons and the Trojan invaders. According to the mythology, the giants Gog and Magog were captured bin battle by the Trojans and made to serve as porters in the gateway of an ancient palace on the site later occupied by the Guildhall.”

Joe had brought me here not only to show me Gog and Magog, but also to have coffee and some pieces of chocolate at the most famous coffee house in Australia. It is called Chokolait, and their mission is to make finest genuine Belgian chocolates, hand crafted cakes, and desserts in Melbourne. Here is a shot of the cappuccinos we ordered. Here’s their website: http://www.chokolait.com.au/

As you can imagine, the Royal Arcade is a primo tourist attraction in Melbourne. Because it’s such a draw, there are a number of street-vendors and buskers around. The musicians included a number who were playing hopped-up diggerydoo’s with pick-up microphones at the business end. For some reason, I didn’t take any pictures of them. The man playing this diggerydoo was down at the docks in Sydney.

I realize this post is getting really long, but the trip was extremely interesting and I took a lot of pictures.

One of our trips was to a city named Ballarat and to Sovereign Hill – a major cultural tourist destination. Ballarat was transformed into a major settlement when gold was discovered. At a small store in Sovereign Hill I met a man standing behind a metal-spinning lathe making different size bells.

Master Joe tested the sound of the bells and determined that this one specific bell had the “right” sound. When Master Joe had his attention elsewhere I purchased two of the bells he “approved” and on my last night with him gifted him one of the bells and invited him to be in my Leather Family. Here’s a shot of the matching bell.

All-in-all a memorable trip and I’m indebted to Master Joe and slave kim for their warm and loving hospitality.
