This past weekend I spent a lot of time at MIR with my partner and some close friends.
The fact that an event like this is run on an all volunteer basis is really impressive. Numerous people from Chicago, around the country, and around the world spent a portion of their weekend volunteering. Additionally, a smaller group of people work throughout the year to plan the events and ensure everything is in place for a smooth weekend. I really appreciate the time and effort from these individuals to put on MIR.
This event was enough to confirm what I already knew. Rubber is an interest of mine but I would classify it as a tertiary interest. To be clear, I appreciate rubber on a guy – especially when combined with bondage. Rubber can get in the way of some of the more functional aspects of gear I enjoy which is one of my issues with rubber when it is on a sub. Additionally, the feel of rubber on my skin is not something I particularly enjoy. I spent all of Friday in my rubber polo and rubber jeans and by the end of the day I was ready to get back in my camo and vest.
I understand why some really like rubber and it has a significant role in the kink community. That being said, rubber will be part of my kink life in the future. People and interests change, maybe rubber will work its way up my list of kink interests.
This past weekend was an incredible amount of fun because of the time I was able to spend with my friends and that is always the best part of any kinky event. Thanks to everyone that made this past weekend special for me!
On a side note – In the next week or so I will be back to posting more thoughtful posts than some of those from the past couple months.
