O DOES NYC

Peggy aka O came to NYC to visit. We went to a meet & greet for Eden Safarty, the new Executive Director for NCSF. He brought along his three partners – he’s poly!

She also made a leg of lamb. It was sheer slop. When she asked Neptune how he liked the meal, he did not want to contradict his Master. He explained to her that slave standards were different from the rest of the world, and as a slave, he would say that it was very good. We both had a laugh at how he had squirmed his way out of that one. But, alas, I deemed it slop and caned her butt as punishment. She will be given another opportunity to try again.

BOOK REVIEW: KISS OF FIRE

by Susan Wright

Ever since Robert Mapplethorpe’s photographs were used to help justify the defunding of the National Endowment of the Arts, there has been a question whether sadomasochism is a fit subject for art. Barbara Nitke answers with a resounding YES! in her new book, Kiss of Fire. With over 60 crisp duotone photographs and published on heavy stock by Kehrer Verlag Heidelberg in Germany, Nitke presents a world of sadomasochism that few will ever see.

Nitke’s photographs can be shocking at times in their frankness. A bound man cries out in pleasure and agony as another man behind him, naked to the waist, plays upon his body. A pale woman is seated on a toilet, vulnerable and timid, with all of her attention focused on the woman leaning over her. An ordinary couple stand in the classic “American Gothic” pose in front of an ordinary house, yet the woman is naked and heavily pregnant.

Each of Nitke’s photographs is attuned to the interplay between the partners and the love that manifests even in the most extreme sexual encounters. Their interaction feels spontaneous; a charged moment frozen in time. Yet each scene is framed in a gently formal composition that makes even the most outrageous accruements seem beautiful.

In Kiss of Fire, Nitke writes of her experience exploring the SM community and her increasing desire to photograph the lovers she saw. “I loved watching them float around together at parties,” Nitke says, “Flying on their endorphins, lost in each other. I loved the ones who would spend days cooking up intricate, delicious scenes to tantalize the other and then tell you about it afterwards like mischievous kids.”

In Kiss of Fire, Nitke has captured the intense energy of these couples’ passion as well as the deep intimacy and trust that is required to engage in SM. For anyone who has ever wanted a deeper look into the glorious contradictions of kinky sexuality, Kiss of Fire is a must for you.

Nitke offers signed copies of Kiss of Fire from her website: www.BarbaraNitke.com

This Monday and every Monday Cyberspace

Back by popular demand (maybe not so popular but surely demanding…): The Eulenspiegel Not Til chat room on AOL 10pm-Midnight. NOT a TES event but an unofficial place online where many TES members and friends hang out and talk. No set topic. It is a good place to ask questions, debate the answers, ask and receive advice, compare notes about the scene, gossip about last week, plan the upcoming week, flirt a little, be serious and not so serious. On AOL in the Town Square area of the People Connection in a “member room” – not private: aol://2719:61-2-Eulenspiegel not til. Add this location to your Favorite Places Folder so that it’s easy to come back.

Tuesday 8.5 NYC

TES Meeting: “Age Play… A Kids Perspective” with Luna. We always hear what the grown-ups have to say about age play, but what about the kids? Spend the night with our own little luna as she stays up past her bedtime to talk about this emotionally charged topic and how it affects the kid side of the play. Candy from strangers greatly appreciated especially if they have a cool car! 7:30pm at 75 Bleecker St, just east of Broadway. $8 ($4 for members of TES and other SM/leather orgs). Info: 212-388-7022 or www.tes.org

Wednesday 8.6 NYC

TES Dominant Men/submissive women’s Group: “Being a Single in the ‘Scene’ – and Loving

it!” As a single in the “Scene,” is there a place for you? How do you find it and, most of all, how can you learn to enjoy and even love it! A panel, comprised of Dominant Men and submissive women, will facilitate a discussion on this topic with emphasis on ways that you can create a single “Scene” life that works for you. $8 ($4 for members of TES and other SM/leather orgs).
