FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

CALL FOR NOMINATIONS
(Columbus, OH) — NLA-International, a leading organization for activists in the pansexual leather community, is now accepting nominations for its annual writing awards for excellence in SM/leather/fetish writing for books, articles, novels, and short fiction first published between 1 January 2010 and 31 December 2010. The deadline for nominations is 31 January 2011. Winners will be announced on April 17 at the National Leather Association’s Annual General Meeting, which will be held during Spring Iniquity XX (April 15-17, 2011) in Houston, TX and mark the National Leather Association’s 25th anniversary. The five award categories are:

Non-Fiction Book (Geoff Mains Award)
Non-Fiction Article (Cynthia Slater Award)
Novel (Pauline Reage Award)
Short Fiction (John Preston Award)
Anthology (Samois Award)

Nominations for the Cynthia Slater Award (non-fiction article) may have appeared in print or online publications (which should indicate a specific date of publication). Eligibility for all other awards (short fiction, novel, non-fiction book, and anthology) requires print publication. If you or someone you know has published a book, article, or story dealing with any aspect of SM, leather, fetish, or kink sexuality please consider nominating it for one of the above awards. Authors and publishers are encouraged to nominate themselves by submitting copies of their work. Nominated works should foster education and promote awareness and a positive image of the leather/SM/fetish community. They should entertain and educate, while building awareness and tolerance of the community and showcasing the talents of its members. There are no submission fees, but the judges will require either three print copies of the nominated work or a digital copy (PDF). Nominations may be sent to the committee chair, Steve Vakesh, at: stevevakesh@gmail.com.

NLA-I has convened an award jury of nine readers, whose number include noted erotic writers and leading community activists. The judges are rotated regularly and their names withheld until after judging is complete to prevent lobbying by nominees. Last year they reviewed more than 100 submissions.

Now in their fourth year, the NLA-I’s writing awards have received widespread appreciation and support. A “leather first,” they have become the preeminent awards for SM, leather, and fetish writing. Past winners include Gloria Brame, Jack Fritscher, Lee “Bridgett” Harrington, Anneke Jacob, Jeff Mann, Jack Rinella, david stein, Cecilia Tan, Claire Thompson, and Alyson Tyler. NLA-I President Vince Andrews hopes that these awards will “continue to recognize, celebrate, and inspire the best in SM, leather, and fetish writing as the NLA celebrates its 25th anniversary.”

Wait for it…

Site Review: Kink Academy

Posted in BDSM, Sex Ed, Shopping with tags , , , , , , , on December 4, 2010 by Chase

I’m an education fetishist. As I dredge the depths of the internet for random smutty videos and links to share with you, I never can help learning something new about this glorious kinky world we live in. Which is why when a site decides to take it to the next level and offers direct lessons on a myriad of perverted topics, it never fails to get me standing at attention- that’s why I’ve become  kinda obsessed with Kink Academy.

It’s like having an experienced kinky teacher (and not just anyone… we’re talking Jay Wiseman, Dylan Ryan, and GrayDancer to name a few) to meet with you, whenever and wherever you want, to talk about an ever-expanding range of topics, from beginner’s bondage and sex ed on to more advanced play and techniques, and also overarching subjects like safety and communication. The organizational structure, where you can follow an established curriculum, view standalone videos, or follow video series like “Tie ‘em Up and Fuck ‘em” (my personal favorite) or “Full Contact Dom”, is particularly impressive and stands out from other sources of kink information on the web today.

There are limits, of course, to what you can learn through video, and Kink Academy instructors are the first to acknowledge that. But if you’re looking for a springboard to expand your kinky horizons, or perhaps looking for a way to delight and inspire others with the gift of learning, I can think of no place better to start.

Fail? I see no fail here

Impact in Slow Motion

Posted in BDSM, Videos with tags , , , , on September 9, 2010 by Chase

So much of impact play speaks to the senses of touch and hearing, but this silent video by SHOWStudio, The Fashion Body – Buttocks  examines the isolated visual impact, so to speak. To experience the pure effect you’ll want to mute the sound, but the additional soundtrack on this version doesn’t hurt either.

And to those not so into the high art packaging… it’s a girl getting her ass beat. Enjoy!

A Chance To Bathe In Roman Glory

Posted in BDSM, Stuff to do with tags , , , , , , , on August 15, 2010 by Chase

Ladies and gentlequeers, freaks and fetishists, gladiators and slaves, lend me your ears! It is once again that time of year when the glorious hole opens and releases a plethora of pleasure once only known to the divine. But this year, someone truly favored by the gods will have a chance to bask in the glory as never before.

As the date draws near to The Glory of Rome on August 28th, the Gloryhole Girls are holding an Ode to the Hole Contest. Entrants will creatively express their love for the hole by composing a verse that is 140 characters or less (that’s right, tweet style) and posting it in a comment on this post and/or on a social networking site like Fetlife or Twitter (in reply to @GloryholeGirls) by August 27th. The lucky winner will be allowed to bathe the amazonian goddess Killa Pussy in a luxurious milk bath, as other romans watch and restrain their envy.
