Cuddly Miso Soup

Polyamorous Group June 26, 2011Polyamorous symbol

The new poly group led my Amelia was held on Sunday the 26th, and it was quite well attended.  She asked some very pertinent questions about polyamory and how each of us had approached it, dealt with the issues that can come with this lifestyle, and we all shared experiences that related to it that we have had.  Some were exploring the possibility of being poly, some have been in poly relationships, and some are still in a poly relationship.

The group was very enlightening, and I learned a lot and perhaps cleared a few things up for myself in my outlook on relationships, whether I am poly or simply non-monogamous. I look forward to the next one, where we may even have it somewhere that we can have “cuddly miso soup”!

Dark, Erotic, and Hawt

Dark and Erotic Imaginings Group:
There was a fun street fair happening outside the ALCC on St. Laurent Blvd, yet on the 4th floor of our building, we also had great fun reading some dark and erotic writings. Luscious brought some marvellous literature as usual (check out the photo!). Anne Rice’s Beauty’s Punishment was a hit. I definitely need to read that series. Luscious gave a wonderful reading of Anne Sexton’s retelling
of Little Red Riding Hood. I had totally forgotten that the tale of Little Red Riding Hood contained a certain Alternative Lifestyle….a Crossdressing Wolf!

Ropin’!

Rope Bondage 101:
Lord Saxnot’s vast experience and knowledge of rope were enthusiastically greeted by a fun group of people in the last Bondage 101 workshop. A couple of us were even eager to show Saxnot some ties we had learnt on the internet… and he was just as quick to show us how unsafe they were! Just goes to show you, you have to be careful. There is so much information readily available now, but it is so important to have an expert to explain what is safe, and what is not.

D/s Relationships

D/s Relationships Workshop

Another excellent workshop by Contessa Alura.  The D/s relation workshop is an excellent workshop for both beginners and more experienced people in the BDSM community.  Contessa went to great length to explain different types of both dominants and submissive.  Explaining the differences between the different types of relations.  She explained how to keep it going, rules and contracts and many other things.  She brought tears to my eyes.  An excellent workshop.  But it was too short since she stil had a lot of stuff to talk about.

Everyone has a different opinion about making home made rope! – ABG (Amateur Bondage Group)

ABG does not seem to get the close to 19 people we used to get previously. For the last few months the numbers have been dwindling.  Any ideas why?

We had our usuals today, thankfully, and though there were enough of us to partner, for one reason or another we all did bondage on ourselves. I did a little bondage with glovedsub too mind you lol.

It just seemed like we all wanted to do the tying. However, no matter how many times I attend, we always, always start with one of us trying to figure something out and the rest of the group taking on the problem to try to solve it. Sometimes we do, sometimes we don’t. Today, we didn’t lol.

As always, Still was happy to share about his rope making techniques and the boys shared their own tips and tricks.

I am so very happy that Still was not comfortable with some of his more larger rope and decided to donate A LOT of it to me!!! Yay! Thanks my dear, it will be well used I assure you.

On a final note, I wanted to extend my sincere appreciation for the generous financial contributions from the group today. I was touched when we counted our donations. Thank you very much for all your support!

Cyclo Nu / World Naked Bike Ride Montreal

Absolutely great ride! A big thanks to my partner in crime Vanessa, couldn’t have done it without u! To Petal for getting the team there! To Mo for trying hard to overcome and get naked, the effort counts! To Jeff who couldn’t make it because he didn’t have a bike but came down anyway and was willing to run! To Mario for having cheeks as white as mine! To Lily for giving me panties at the last minute! And finally to Amelia, the organizers, and all those who turned out!

Unfortunately, I couldn’t get totally naked because of the swarm of photographers at the park. I need to be somewhat discreet and respectful for my job. If I didn’t have paparazzi up my ass every minute and could have blended more it would have been okay.

But I was there on my bike in support! There should have been many more people there, we were a really small group. Perhaps people didn’t really understand u could come clothed and support.

See you all next year!!!

Oh, check out this really awesome article Argaive posted: http://photography.argaive.com/journal/2011/06/journal-events-World_Nude_Bicycle_Ride_Montreal_2011.html

Oh, Yeah, That’s a Paddlin’!!!!

We had a huge turn-out for this workshop. I didn’t know so many people were
interested in paddling. In fact there were a bunch of RSVP’s that couldn’t make
it so I’ve decided to hold it again, this time on a Sunday in July. Check the
schedule!
 
My delicious demonstration model, Jared, was a real sport even stripping
down nude for the occasion. All of us in the room had quite a treat starring at
his yummy butt while my paddle redened it haha.
 
I was able to cover all the material about paddling I wanted to and was
happy that there were great questions from the attendees.
 
During the hands-on practice part, one of the lovely attendees, Tribeka
sure had fun learning to paddle on Jared… she was a natural with that paddle
too bad for him. He certainly put his ass on the line for that workshop lol. And
he didn’t even have any bruises… I’ll have to ask him in a few days if he had
any souvenirs 😉
 
I basically went over all the technicalities, types of paddles, and safety,
followed by a demonstration. According to my evaluations, everyone enjoyed it
and learned a great deal.
 
Be careful out there, we have a group of new paddlers out there just
waitiing for a victim to practice on 🙂

There’s nothing better than a naked man wearing a bow-tie serving you wine

Why do they pick Clov’s workshop to smoke us the frick out and then add a drillhammer upstairs since he’s got the softest voice of anyone I know??? Blasted!
 
Well we did hear Clov in between the hammering and I was thrilled with the subject. Clov has a deep passion for being forced to strip naked in front of women and serve them while they sit dressed in their best … feeling the flush in his face and body, he enjoys the embarassement. And so do I.
 
He actually asked me to participate by asking me a few questions. Most of
the men in the room were obviously enjoying the workshop but way to scared to
talk about it. One guy was brave enough to admit he was into it but the truth is
still apparent, why would you go to a “Clothed Female, Naked Male” workshop
unless you were into it lol.
 
The photos Clov shared were truly the best and I had a smile permanently
fixed on my face the entire time!
 
If you missed this workshop you have one last chance to catch it this
Sunday! Check the schedule for details.

Superheroes And Celebration!

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

On Sunday the 5th of June, the ALCC held it’s drop-in day, with a “superhero” theme, and with ulterior motives as well!

See, in June there were birthdays for 4 members… so the “Black Queen” (Contessa Alura) had very carefully laid her diabolical plot! She would lure the four said members to the ALCC Drop In, and not only surprise them with a delicious sweet cake… but lure them in with defences lowered to administer a dark, sinister paddling!

The four unsuspecting “victims” were give a choice of “implement”… which was tricky since all would have given the Black Queen an advantage! Needless to say our unsuspecting citizens were astonished!  Paddles went abound! Four “tushies” were left red!  Many yelps! Many flinches in antici………

PATION!

This reporter can say that no one was actually harmed…. maybe a pride or two… and maybe there was some enjoyment on the part of the “victims” of the Black Queen, but I can say, as the “Tranz Avenger”, reporting for you, and responsible as reporter, that there were even two “thank you’s” issued after this diabolical deed!

All in all… a great drop in day! And the themes just may continue! So if you want to drop by in theme you can, and if you don’t want to be in theme… NOT a problem! Just drop on in on the next one! 😀

Learnin’ About The Alternatives

On June 5 we had our “Alternative Lifestyles Workshop”, where Contessa Alura talked about the many lifestyles considered as alternative.  Of course one thing we would like to see at the ALCC is for them to be not so alternative 🙂

She talked about the various ones from BDSM, polyamorous, swinger, cuckold, trans, and more.  She is very knowlegable, and it was very apparent.

Questions were put, and experiences shared. All in all, a very good workshop!  For those interested in learning about the various different lifestyles, I’d reccomend attending!
