Tell me a little about yourself outside of kink. What do you do day to day?
I love to dress up and am actively involved in a pirate group that does such. I have just finished a diploma and am attempting to reach my goal of one day becoming a counselor. I enjoy doing good for people and try to do at least one good deed a day.
Tell me a little about yourself inside kink.
Well, I am a huge collection of kinks, quirks, and curiosities all rolled up into the shape of a boy. I love to serve and I love pain – giving and receiving; sometimes at the same time.
Are your kink identities and ‘real life’ identities similar? How do they differ? How are they the same?
I endeavour to please people in all that I do. This is a trait that transfers to all facets of my life, inside and outside of kink.
How do you participate in kink activities? Are they just in the bedroom, or do they extend beyond that?
They extend well beyond that. Most kink is not even used in the bedroom for me. I love the power exchange between myself and somebody else and will serve people I love in different ways.
When did you first know you liked rope?
When I was a child I enjoyed tying up the gate to stop robbers from coming into the house and have always had rope around me in one way or another.
Why or how is rope different from other methods of bondage, for you?
It is not just rope, it is an extension of the person tying you to yourself. Another hand if you will. Firmly holding you safely.
When do you play with rope?
Very rarely. Generally at skill shares.
How do you play with rope?
I like to be restricted.
What do you think is the most important part of a rope-scene for you?
The emotional exchange with my partner.
When you play with rope, is the focus on the the rope, or are other styles of play used at the same time?
Other styles of play too, such as dominance, power exchange and take down.
Who do you play with?
My partner and other close friends.
What do you think is important to keep in mind, when picking a rope partner or partners?
Trusting the other person to read me, and being able to speak out if something does not feel right.
Have you ever had an incident in rope? Has anything ever gone wrong?
Once when I was tying somebody to a chair their legs started to feel funny. I untied them immediately, and was glad that they spoke up even though I was playing a dominant role at the time.
What do you wish you’d have known, when you were just starting out in rope?
I wish I had have known more about the human anatomy and what pressure points and nerves could be impacted by rope.
What is the best bit of advice you could give to somebody who wants to try rope?
Never be afraid to tell the person you are playing with if something does not feel right. Know your limits.
What would you want someone who knows nothing about rope to know about rope, and about you?
Like most things rope itself is inanimate and harmless until it is paired with a person. Be careful but do not get too tied up in worry that you can-knot enjoy yourself.
Why did you want to be a part of this project?
I have huge respect for Kat. She is very close to my heart, and I love her work. This project looks like a whole lot of fun, just like her.
