Life Gets In The Way
I know I’ve been even worse than usual w/keeping you up to date on my comings and goings but Ernest went into the hospital on the 11th and ended up staying for a week when there were complications from an emergency appendectomy. I slept at the hospital each night and was with him pretty much full-time. Thankfully, he’s home and will make a full recovery. Whew!
SHOW ON THE 29th
I was returning from doing a talk at Gettysburg College this past Thursday, so was unable to do my show. There will be a show next week. Maybe solo, maybe Charli Piper. I’ll be sure to let you know!
I had the distinct pleasure last week of flying into BWI in order to be part of a Speakers Panel on gender at Gettysburg College in, you guessed it, Gettysburg, PA. The ride in was a vacation in and of itself, as the weather was California-warm and the colors were just starting to turn. It’s lovely country side in that part of the world and the driver was a delightful retiree who earns money by driving for the school, since there are no airports w/in 2 hours’ drive.
I arrived on Tuesday. They put me up in a nice hotel directly on Lincoln Square, in the middle of town. It’s such a charming place that I just wanted to move in that day. I like college towns and this place, of course, is loaded with History-with-a-capital-“H.” Very walkable and the school itself is really lovely. Jeff W., an adjunct professor teaching a Production class, arranged for me to be interviewed by a young man while being recorded, both as a class project as well as for my use later. That went very well and the young men could’t have been more polite. At the end of the talk a friend of the teacher’s, a grown man who’s not a student, drove me back to town (five whole minutes!) and came in to the bar for a drink. We were eventually joined by Jeff and the wife of the guy who drove me back. Then a quick chat to my Darling, who was home alone after his stint in the hospital, then bed.
The next day was equally beautiful and warm. I got a shampoo and a blowout at the studio across from the hotel (I saw the sign from my window), before lunch with some students at the Dining Hall. Again, lovely young people who want to talk about sex. I had the rest of the day to work on my talk before being picked up at 6:30 to go to the venue, a 100-seat room. Forty students are required to attend the lecture series and the small, 100-seat room, but it was soon clear that we’d need a bigger space. When it was SRO and badly overcrowded we had a force mejur move to the Ballroom. We finally got the microphone working and about 350 students sat on the floor and the few chairs that were available and I got to do my talk. I’ll have to post it here, or somewhere. It turns out that the speaker before me in the series was a Pro Domme and the final speaker is the odious Gail Dines (it’s personal between us, believe me). I got some good digs in w/o being overly harsh, as the purpose of the talk was not to bash Dines but to give the students hope about sex and their futures as sexual beings.
It was well-recieved, to say the least. Then dinner with the staff and other teachers from the department, plus a couple of Econ professors, plus my friend, Robert, who came down from MD to listen in.
I just loved being on stage talking to young adults. I like them and they seem to like me, so you can know I’ll be pursuing that avenue more in the future.
Not A Lot of Play
As you can imagine, with Ernest’s appendectomy, we’ve not had a lot of play time recently, so not a lot to report on that arena at present.
I recently did a great workshop here in LA with my friend, Michael Ellsberg, “Dominance for Nice Guys.” Fifteen people showed up, two of them bringing their girlfriends. As demo models we had the fabulous Justine Joli and Casey Calvert, who both performed above and beyond expectations. We thought they’d be great but they were better than great. They were awesome! Just the fact that they are so personable and able to articulate their experience as submissive players helped the guys so much. Plus, actual spanking, work w/floggers, crops and paddles. Everyone got something out of the experience and Michael and I are hoping to do this quarterly here in LA.
Michael and I have very different dimming styles and it was nice to showcase each type. His is very wordy, with a lot of dialogue. Mine, learned from Ernest, is more physical and intuitive. Both are hot. While she’s the ultimate Good Girl, Casey did a fine job of playing the Brat with Michael.
I’m continuing to work w/Jay Taylor to shoot fun content. I have a store and some of my newer scenes are there. I’m looking to add more FemDom content, so if you’re hankering for a spanking there’ll be boy bottoms made red soon!
As always, thanks for reading!
