Couples that kit together

Perverts, fetishists, and bondage enthusiasts are people too. Online voyeurism shields us from day jobs, families, and many other distractions outside of kink. But a few months ago, we spent a full weekend with this girl and Grimly. Even with a Friday arrival and Monday departure, we only managed 2 or 3 hours of actual bondage! Some would measure the brevity as a failure, but by our own metrics we had an awesome and inspiring visit. Who cares about torture time, when ideas can be exchanged to execute back home without any time restraints (pun intended).

It’s difficult to capture the geekiness that resulted when proud perverted couples “talk shop” amongst themselves. Heckling about meat eaters, programming languages, e-stim box size, gas mask collections, and much more filled our weekend. We had the pleasure of meeting the couple behind jlatex (of BoundInLatex.com fame) and anne_Omalley during this short jaunt too.

B got to try a vacbed for the first time ever; I’m a bit too claustrophobic for a full-body version myself – maybe a neck gasket model would work better for us both. Grimly, as always, is an excellent guru: not only assembling the bed quickly but also talking through various safety precautions. B reported falling “instantly into headspace” due to the lack of senses, where breathing was the primary – if only – focus for her encased latex body. Apparently she enjoyed the experience enough to start lusting after Kink Engineering designs a few days later!

The famous Feendish dungeon is full of too many toys to explore, though, including antique violet wands.

And during a short “photo shoot”, a number of DIY and home built kit was hauled out for “props”. A vintage electric shaver turns into a very affordable Eroscillator knock-off, where the loud buzzing adds an audible torture aspect.

I also really enjoyed “guys time” with Grimly, who walked me through the Locked for Infinity workspace. It’s clear the L4I product vision is rooted in safety, quality, and practicality.

Ironically I’m writing this post on a daylong train ride – thousands of miles away from both Scotland and America. Finding time to chronicle our own adventures is best done in dramatic landscape changes, where distractions are minimal – thanks to nonexistent data coverage.

We look forward to seeing the gang from Scotland again soon… hopefully next time for a fortnight!

Serious Kit – Electrically Engineered

The past spring we had a chance to meet the proprietor of Serious Kit along with several hours to get a look at some of their gear in person. The bespoke company’s focus is, as you could imagine, on serious kit – specifically milking apparatuses. While not their sole item, the majority of the product offering is geared for cocks (though a breast variant is also available).

Perverts turned entrepreneurs bring something special to their products, including ensuring their gear meets their own stringent demands. This could mean years of tinkering with a design, exhaustive quality assurance (tough job!), and of course, stressing over all the little details. This common story is very much true of the SK line, where “our kit is designed by fetishists, not accountants”.

The craftsmanship speaks for itself – a clear departure from the established products (Venus 2000) with a modern, clean design (in fact, bondage furniture was a predecessor business). Each order is handcrafted in the UK, with numerous options; avoiding the “off the rack” factory aspect. The colored tubes indicate flow direction, critical for extended play with the lubrication reservoir. Refurbished milkers receive a beautiful chrome polish. The milkers can be used simply as milkers, or they can have e-stim electrodes integrated as well, depending on the particular model.

We particularly liked the design of the bi and tripolar stainless steel rings for e-stim play. This paired with a butt plug electrode (such as Mr. S Leather’s WMCBP or E-Stim Systems Torpedo) would be sensory overload in the best way possible – bound to produce a “HFO” or hands-free orgasm.

B and I are both fans of multi-hour long sessions, where the bondage turns into a therapeutic escape from everyday stress. Many would call this entering headspace, or focusing so heavily on the experience that all distractions melt away. SK summarized his own experiences in this realm as “It’s about the fun and pleasure… the pleasure that comes from pain”. Professional doms know this all too well, where competing purely on an exhaustive toy collection isn’t enough. Controlling a session, where sensations can be precisely adjusted is one of the primary advantages of the Serious Kit. The design allows for many different knobs to be turned, lending itself to the ability of producing multiple unique sessions using the same equipment.

Though their main focus is intense genital stimulation with the milking machine, Serious Kit has begun to also offer an encompassing full body “neural novel stimulation” experience: the vac suit. The “vac suit” is essentially “a vac bed on acid” – based on a loose catsuit pattern, coupled with the milking machine, and retained vac bed-like suction. The suit is made of chlorinated rubber, both glued and sewn together, and designed as a “one size fits all”. My favorite story gem is “Germans love our suit for watersports, where the milker can suck away {all the mess}!”.

It was truly a pleasure to geek out at Serious Kit headquarters, and we greatly appreciate SK taking the time to show off their kit and talk shop with us. And, personally, I’m certainly hoping Santa can deliver me a HFO for the holidays this year!

Visiting This Girl and Grimly

This spring B and I spent a few weeks in the UK. As a true vacation, at least for one of us, we were able to justify renting a car. This offered us the great luxury of last minute planning – handy when meeting busy perverts and kinky businesses.

We’ve been admirers of This Girl’s blog for some time now. Her well-documented journey among many perversions is entertaining, realistic, and heartfelt. This Girl and Grimly were kind enough to welcome us over to their home and dungeon space. It was very liberating to “talk shop” with a couple that shares many of the same kinky interests as ourselves. Discussions quickly centered on BDSM toys, latex wares, and homemade gear.

Grimly is a passionate engineer, eager to show off his decades of kit – each item with a background story. Grimly’s Chair displayed many parallels to JG-Leathers famous Creature (not surprising, JG is a good friend of theirs). Remote controllable, safety oriented, devious, powerful vacuum electro components, and of course – immobilization to the max.

Due to some navigational challenges, we only had a few hours to chat, but departed inspired and with months of “to do” projects. And we hope to make it back to the UK sometime soon so that we can hang out with This Girl and Grimly a bit more, as they’re both lovely, interesting people.

On a final note, Grimly’s latest adventure is his own store, Locked for Infinity. It’s well worth keeping an eye on, as Grimly makes high quality stuff and there are some exciting pieces that will eventually be available.
