Don’t get me wrong, I’m very much looking forward to chomping down on some tasty dead bird on Thursday. Almost as much as I’m looking forward to all the turkey sandwiches I’ll get to enjoy in the aftermath.

But I think attending this event is more in keeping with the spirit of the holiday…

well…okay, the pilgrims were all a bunch of tight-ass puritans who would probably have burned me at the stake for the types of things I’ll be confessing to being thankful for…

but screw it, its a revisionist holiday just like most every other American celebration.

Whether our forefathers would have approved or not, I’m going to this on Tuesday and you’re welcome to join me:

EROTIC SEATTLE EDUCATION SALON

Tuesday November 20th
Erotic Seattle Education Salon: “Gratitude”
Dinner @ 6:00 pm, Salon @ 7:00 pm-9:00 pm FREE!
Capitol Club 414 E Pine St (Cross Street: Bellevue Avenue)

Our November topic for the ESE Salon is gratitude. What kind of sexual
and BDSM experiences have left you grateful? Come on down and we’ll
talk about it! We will meet in the little side room to the right when you
first walk in. Come early at 6:00 pm and join Allena Gabosch & Teri
Ciacchi for a bite to eat before the discussion begins.

Erotic Seattle Education Sexuality Salon Discussions occur the third Tuesday of every
month in Capitol Hill. A salon is an open facilitated discussion focused
on a specific topic. Each Sexuality Salon will be focused on a different
aspect of Sex (bet you already figured that out eh? ) Salons will
start at 7pm and end at 9pm and are open to all people. If you are a person
that has difficulty with diversity or passionate conversation you may
not want to attend.

Here’s a link to the Capitol Club, one of my favorite Seattle restaurants, in case you need more incentive:

These chats are always a lot of fun and are yet another way to get to know folks in the Seattle kink community. You don’t need a membership, just an open mind, and a willingness to share your own experiences.

Hope to see you there!

These guys are just so awesome. Yeah for smart and funny sex ed! They’ve got two other new episodes out in addition to this one. Episode #7 (Homosexuality 1) and Episode #9 (Syphilis). You can see them all on their website at http://midwestteensexshow.com/. No work unfriendly images but the audio content…plug in your head phones.

Also on the topic of male masturbation here are a couple of product reviews that I’ve been meaning to post for awhile. Since I’ve included product pictures that might get some folks fired I’ve put the rest of this post behind the cut:

Obviously I don't have the right equipment to test these myself. Okay, I've got some cool equipement, but what I have is detachable and doesn't have any nerve endings. But I did have a very willing guinea pig and I forc…I mean…asked him to give me feedback while the toys were in use.

First up:

Although I’d like to see more boys exploring the fun sensations of vibrators. And having a toy that places a nice strong bullet vibe right at the head of the cock, where its most sensitive, seems like a great idea. But the designers missed the mark by a lot. The sheath is hard to put on, even with lube and a solid erection, and has a habit of suction cupping to the head once on. That could be a fun feeling but once you start stroking it kind of works its way up and then is a pain to work it back down again. You basically have to take it off to break the suction and then put it back on again. Maybe if the sheath was longer, but as is(size pictured on the box not next to the box), its way too short for most boys. I imagine that with practice one could find a way to make this toy work. But toys are supposed to make coming easier not more difficult. If you wanted to work that hard you could just go find yourself a 22 year old to have sex with.

I give The Hooded Wonder a 1 spank out of 10 rating.

Next up:

We liked this toy. A lot. Simple yet effective design of a jelly(silicone) sleave with more stimulating nubbins on the inside then you can shake a stick at. Just lube yourself up and slip inside. Extra bonus, this would be a great toy for folks trying to wean themselves off the dreaded “death grip” Lots of sensation and it works best with light pressure and slow or fast strokes. Potential downside, is that given its a jelly, which makes it really pliable and easy to get on no matter what your size, it probably won’t be the toy that lasts you a lifetime. But at only $12 you’ll more then get your money’s worth. Jelly’s are also impossible to fully sterilize so no sharing and they do tend to pick up lint easily so don’t store this one in your sock drawer.

I give the Hand Job Stoker a 9 spanks out of 10 rating.

Remember that you will always be the best and most loyal lover you will ever have. But even the best of relationships take work. So why not grab some lube and work that relationship tonight.

Alas and Alack I have big birthday obligations and will not be able to attend this years fabulous fetish freak show that is Cirque Du Noc…

but that doesn’t mean that you should miss it. In fact you should go and have enough fun for two people and then email me about all the great kinky things you did and saw.

Seriously if you’re looking for a way to test out the Seattle scene THIS WOULD BE A GOOD WAY!

They are serious about the dress code thing so don’t be a weeny and show up in jeans and a polo shirt. At a loss for what to wear? Well basic black(slacks and a button down or nice t-shirt) usually works at most fetish events for boys. This is a bit more of a dress-up event so if you go with that, glue some devil horns to your forehead to make it more of a “costume”. Not feeling horny? Well most folks look good in a tux. Or skip the shirt and jacket and just do the slacks, bow tie and cuffs ala Chippendale.

Need more ideas? Try stopping by the Crypt on Capitol Hill. Tell then where you are going and let them play dress-up with you. Bonus – they just moved(into the old Vogue space) and are having a sale on leathers. Mmmmmmmm…leather. Also, chicks dig pirates. I’m just sayin…

Cirque Du Noc is one of the two big yearly fundraiser events for the Center for Sex Positive Culture(formerly and affectionately known as the Wetspot). The other event being the Seattle Erotic Arts Fest which I wouldn’t miss even if I was in a full body cast. Both events are super sexy places to schmooze with others, get your flirt on, do a bit of kinky networking. And even if you’re the shy type its worth going for the eye candy alone.

One last note, it can be hard to break into the scene if you are a single guy. Seattle is a pretty tribe minded town and the kink community has to have a certain amount of this to protect itself and its members. A great way to show that you are a good person and worth getting to know is by volunteering. You will be helping out a good cause, getting a bit of street cred and you’ll end up meeting a ton more people then you would by just showing up at an event by yourself. They can always use more helping hands, especially with set up and take down.

Something to think about.
