Please tell us a little bit about yourself – How would you describe your everyday vanilla life?
Science geek by conviction and profession.
When did you first realize you were into bondage?
Very early on, maybe when I was 12 or 13 years old. Can't quite figure out what drove me to it, though. Maybe my very active imagination, lots of curiosity, and a well-stocked tool shed with ropes and other toys.
How you best describe yourself and why? Your choices are: Dominant, Submissive, Switch or Fuzzy Rainbow Unicorn.
Well, "fuzzy rainbow unicorn" in the black leather, rubber, and steel variety.
Do you feel that your desire for bondage is more physical or emotional? (please elaborate)
I think it is more physical, but it comes and goes in waves.
Were lovers accepting of your interest in bondage?
Nope, which is part of the reason why I'm into self bondage.
Please briefly describe your first bondage experience.
That's a difficult one, since it was so long ago. My first "toys" were gauze bandages, which I used to restrain myself. It was a great turn on, even though they weren't very strict. In the meantime I've graduated to leather and steel....
What was your best bondage experience?
Those were dangerous sessions when my release and emergency release both failed. It was scary and exhilarating when I finally got out, without having to call for help.
What is the most creative safeword you have ever used?
Well, for self bondage you don't need a safeword, but an emergency release. Calling for help until the neighbors alert the police is definitely not the best scenario. Also, it doesn't work if you use a gag or a similar device.
What do you feel is most important about the experience of bondage?
For me, it is feeling helpless when I'm tied up, and feeling empowered when I manage to free myself. Also, I need a safe environment before I start a session, which can be tricky during business trips...
What is the best advice you would give to someone just starting out with BDSM?
Be careful and enjoy exploring this new playground. There is so much to discover...
What is your favorite gear, toy or lingerie item from sub-shop.com and why?
Well, it is either the Leather Posture Training 3 Ring Bondage Collar or the Night Cap Locking Penis Chastity Set.Both are so strict and well-used.
What is the one sensual fantasy you haven’t lived out yet that you are excited to try?
Tying myself up in a way that is safe and lasts for ~24 hours. So far I've always managed to get out long before.
What’s your favorite knock-knock joke?
An old classic:
(sexy voice) Who would you like it to be?
What is Eskimo ice?
I only know of Eskimo Ice the ice cube delivery company. Something else I should know about?
