Ok, so we’re a bit late and I’m cheating by pretending that this went up on Tuesday (see the date?), I admit it. However, I also admit that I was celebrating a splendid birthday in Seattle this past week. Yes, dear readers, I’m so excited to be 30! I believe that is something like 90 in sex-blogger-years…
At any rate, I will be posting my reviews of a number of sexy places in the Seattle area during this week. You might want to run on over to my Yelp page to view them sooner, or to see all of the maps and lists and what-have-you.
First and foremost, I am very pleased to post this week’s delightful fetish interview with Sir Butch of Twisted Gryphon Leather! Twisted Gryphon Leather sells lovely leather accessories and BDSM toys, so go on and take a look. Perhaps you’ll find something special for your holiday shopping…
Continue reading to learn more about Sir Butch, and Sir’s love of consensual, sexy fear, power exchange and BDSM. This is especially true when it comes to knives!
Please tell us, what is your fetish?
How common do you think your fetish is?
On some level, I believe it to be something everyone involved in the BDSM lifestyle is into. Adrenaline, endorphins, and the unknown are always an attraction to people.
How do you incorporate your fetish into your sexual experiences?
While it’s not altogether a sexual experience, BDSM does tend to lend its self to sensuality, and the play is great foreplay for some amazing sex.
Is there anything you have to be particularly careful about with this fetish? If so, how do you handle it?
Like anything else, there are health risks. Sexually transmitted diseases, blood-borne pathogens, etc. Since a lot of what we do could be considered extremely dangerous, we have to be a bit more careful than your average person on the street.
What really works for you about this fetish, what aspects turn you on?
There are few things about this lifestyle that don’t turn me on…so that’s a more appropriate question. I personally don’t get into scat, golden showers, kids, or animals, otherwise, the arena is pretty much open.
Would you please tell us a story or two about sexual experiences you’ve had involving your fetish?
I’ll tell you about the first time I ever used a knife in my kink. It started with a sort of play rape scene that was all over the bedroom. At some point I had the girl bent over the dresser and from behind her I saw my Ka-Bar knife sitting there. I picked it up, unsnapped the holder and flung off the sheath with one hand, then held the back side of the blade against her throat… that was one of the biggest rushes of my life to that point.
How do people react when you share your fetish with them, if anyone knows?
That really depends on the person. For the most part, the people I associate with know my penchant for knife play so it’s not a big shocker to them. When I’m introduced to someone new, I don’t often talk about the extremity of my kink in order to not scare them off. I’m really a sweet guy, I would hate for them to get the wrong impression.
How do you go about finding partners that share your interest?
I have been participating in the local public BDSM scene for about 10 years, ever since I found out that what I crave is not unusual, and that there are many others like myself that share the same interests.
Can you recommend any resources for people who want to learn more or might even share your fetish?
I could suggest any number of good resources; the easiest way to find good reference material these days is to google it, then take a mental poll of the most recommended sites and books, check into those. A lot of online material is full of mixed messages at best, dangerous practices at worst. Take your time and don’t get into anything you are not comfortable with.
Anything else you would like to add?
This is a serious lifestyle choice for many of us. There are those too who are into it for the kinky sex. As long as everyone is on the same page and each can meet the other’s needs honestly, have fun with it.
Thanks you so much, Sir Butch!
