“California Boys” Brings Together Colt Studios’ Hottest Models aking up with a hot stud in your bed is always a good thing. Two hot studs waking up to each other, that’s just heaven. Sexy muscle-boys roll around naked in bed before coming together for some passionate and intimate kissing in Colt Studio’s “California Boys.” California Boys begins in the bedroom of Adrian Long. Despite the 400-thread-count sheets, this lanky, longhair looks like a dirty hippy catching a nap in someone else’s bed. But after sultry-eyed Marc Dylan joins him, the impression changes to that of dopey surfer
with an unending erection. It’s a fine line there. Long and Dylan get right down to it. They kiss, lick and suck but not in that order. It’s like they’re going through a checklist of gay sex options, and they really don’t miss many. Dylan is a surprisingly adept bottom — and he’s not only good at it, but loves doing it. They get so into each other that at one point Dylan reaches across for stability and catches Long on the cheekbone with a little jab. It doesn’t stop them in the least. Instead, Long grabs Dylan’s hand and starts sucking his finger. That’s lemonade out of lemons.
The whole scene progresses until the predictable exciting conclusion. Seeing Dylan splayed across the maroon sheets, I’d say if he sold his soul for those abs, it was a good deal. Lanky and ripped Adrian Long acts on a checklist of gay sex maneuvers in California Boys. The next scene opens on Alex Andrews in a large bathtub with a black, battery-powered vibrating cockring. Is that really safe? Jessie Jordan arrives to explain the dangers of electricity and water, but it turns out he has other motives. Jordan climbs in and takes his turn with the electronic device before the accontinued on page 3 >

tion gets more personal. Both of them give off that guynext-door vibe but Andrews especially so. He looks like he’d shovel your driveway — and do a damn good job, too. After some oral stimulation, Andrews casually takes out a fluorescent green dildo and gives Jordan the time of his life. They stay sitting on the edge of the bathtub as they demonstrate that, just like in basketball, there are shooters and there are dribblers. The rest of the film continues in short scenes like these, with consistently attractive models and hot locations to show them off. California Boys brings together some of Colt Studio Group’s hottest

Belly Dancing: From Classical to Erotic
Belly Dancing is a style of dance that has been celebrated as a performance art for close to 100 years. Though its origins lie in folk and social dancing of the Middle East, it has grown into a respected feminine art form that is presented in restaurants, weddings and various celebration throughout the world. In the first half of this presentation we will discuss the History of Belly Dance from ancient origins to present time, various styles and interpretations, myths and taboos. After the break we will come together to explore the often repressed erotic side of belly dance. I will discuss and demonstrate some of the core movements that will be covered in my monthly classes. Audience participation is welcomed but not required. The presentation March 5 will be concluded with several erotic performances. Slave Tiffany has been intensively studying many forms and styles of Oriental Dance for the last 6 years. While she occasionally does restaurant dancing around the valley, her main focus is teaching. She teaches weekly classes for the City of Phoenix Parks and Rec at the Beuf Community Center as well as private and group classes. She currently serves as treasurer for the local MECDA Chapter (Middle Eastern Cultural Dance Association). She also uses Belly Dancing as an element in her spiritual practice of movement meditation/worship that allows her to connect with her own Divine Femininity.

Leather and Spirituality – Power, Principles and Play Living a Leather life contains elements of power exchange, principles of personal conduct, and “play”. People throughout history have stressed their bodies, challenged their minds and invoked a wide range of emotions in their quest for a deeper connection to themselves and the world around them. Through play, we have access to the combined experiences of Body, Mind and Spirit in unique and glorious ways. Ritual, protocol, pain, and bondage are a few examples of how we enter altered states of consciousness and tap into the vastness that is beyond our physical being. Whether you have encountered this connection “accidentally”, are searching for ways to enhance your proficiency in melding Body, Mind and Spirit in your play, or don’t have the foggiest idea of what this looks like, join Master Onyxe March 12 in an exploration of the concepts and practices of integrating Leather and Spirituality. Dedicated in the pursuit of identifying the true Nature within us, Master Onyxe is an Instructor for Butchmanns Experience and is the Ritual Team Lead and a Piercer for the Dance of Souls at Southwest Leather Conference. A member of the Arizona Power Exchange, Phoenix Chapter of MAsT and Arizona Amazons, she is gender fluid, tantalizingly queer and delights in exploring how perceptions and assumptions color our lives.

When we are ready to be who we truly are, we encounter the next step on our path. The emphasis of activities is on personal transformation and growth and includes intentional flogging, ritual temporary piercing, the call to serve and be served, and transformational mummification. These activities are further explored through in-depth discussions. The environment is structured to encourage safely entering new experiences, with the instructors and faculty supporting each individual’s unique experience.

Handballing and Anal Play
The erotic art of handballing and extended anal play has been present in sexual cultures for thousands of years since man first discovered that his anus could be a source of pleasure. This class March 26 will endeavor to give informed perspectives on techniques for engaging in this ancient form of pleasure. Discussion will include such topics as mental headspace, preparation, techniques, and tools of the trade. This will be a decidedly “hands” on experience with a live demonstration followed by open discussion. Early on in his sexual life, Shannon Vieth once thought that kinky sex was getting fracked outside in the rain, but now the 33 year old vice-president of the Phoenix boys of Leather knows that fetish sex and kink are much more varied then merely where one has sex and is more about how you have sex. Shannon has been exploring power dynamics in relationships long before he ever identified as Leather or even believed that the title “boy” was relevant to him. Titillated by his first fisting experience over ten years ago, Shannon has sought to go beyond the physical and mental limits of the average person and reach into the divine headspace created through the psychic connection of erotic handballing. Knowing that all kinks involve risks, Shannon is a strong advocate for RACK rules and conscientious awareness. Oscar Solis is a 25 year old Mexican American man, who began his BDSM journey at the young age of 14 with his 14 year old boyfriend at the time. Oscar grew from mild to wild after his first experience as a fisting top. His knowledge and abilities in many fetishes and kinks have grown throughout the years thanks to great mentors. He is now proud to be Mr. Phoenix Leather 1st runner up in 2010, member of the Arizona Men of Leather, Friend of the Phoenix boys of Leather, and holds a seat in Jeffery Payne’s Lifetime Achievement Award Selection Committee. Oscar believes in the basic prin-
The March 25 meeting for slaves, submissives, and bottoms with a feminine heart. Let’s learn together and celebrate as we all continue on our journey as Leather girls. The Mission: 1.

This gathering is the same day as the APEX BBQ and Open House, so we can meet at 1:00 in the jail room and eat/socialize before and after the meeting! See you there!

Porn Studios Weigh Fleeing Or Fighting L.A. Condom Law
Porn studios, facing a new Los Angeles law that will force adult actors to wear condoms as a protection against AIDS, are mulling whether to move filming out of city limits or take legal action. The new ordinance, which takes effect March 5, will require porn performers to wear condoms while shooting on location in the city. The measure has shaken the pornograph-
ic film industry, which until now had found a happy, largely accepting home in L.A. For years, producers have operated lucrative businesses in anonymous office parks in the San Fernando Valley. Available in the city were a steady supply of actors and film production talent as well as opulent mansions that often served as theatrical backdrops. By one estimate, at least 5% of on-location shoots were for adult films. The landmark law marks a rare attempt to regulate how films are made, threatening an industry that has been a source of millions of dollars in revenue. AIDS activists are gathering signatures for a countywide ballot measure that would extend the ban to dozens of additional communities. It’s a debate that pits the desire to protect the health of porn actors against the freedom to make films that audiences want to see. The Los Angeles City Council acted earlier this year after a series of incidents

in which adult film productions were suspended amid concerns that HIV had been transmitted among performers. Despite the health risks of having unprotected sex on movie sets, the industry has strongly opposed a condom requirement, saying that monthly testing already safeguards performers and that customers won’t pay to see such films. AIDS activists say that the fight over condoms is about protecting performers’ health and opposing the promotion of unsafe sex. “The fact that porn sends out a message that the only type of sex that’s hot is unsafe ... we think that’s detrimental,” said Michael Weinstein, president of the Los Angelesbased AIDS Healthcare Foundation. The Los Angeles law was the result of months of aggressive lobbying by Weinstein and other AIDS activists, who have long called on the government to step in and make the porn workplace safer. The council approved the law only after activists pres-
sured it by gathering enough signatures to ask voters to decide the issue at the ballot box. The industry has been forced to suspend production several times amid reports that adult performers contracted HIV. One was Derrick Burts, who tested HIV-positive in 2010 and said clinic staff told him he was infected by a fellow performer. “It’s a broken system that they have in place,” said Burts, who backs mandatory condoms. “What performer wouldn’t want to feel more safe on a work set?” Diane Duke of the adult film lobby group Free Speech Coalition said performers should have the right to have sex as they wish. “This is the first step of government overreach into the way we make movies,” Duke said. “It’s clearly the government interfering where it really doesn’t belong. ... Because our industry deals with sex … we’re vulnerable and easy to attack.”

Bobbi Starr’s Extreme Lesbian
BDSM Website Launches
San Francisco - Kink.com an-
nounced the launch of performer and director Bobbi Starr’s extreme lesbian BDSM website, ElectroSluts.com. The company said the new offering includes “higher voltage, bigger dildos, harder flogging and hotter babes than ever seen before.” ElectroSluts’ reality-based scenarios will feature bound and tormented amateur girls and stars alike submitting to Starr’s will. Kink.com said the director’s world of lesbian perversions is sure to awe and enrapture
loyal fans as well as capture the lurid imaginations of new ones. Starr and her cohorts dominate and teach hot, willing women to enjoy the pleasures and pain of total submission. “With Electro Sluts, I am hoping to appeal to a clientele that is interested in the experience of the submissive by using a documentary, realism-style pornography,” Starr said. She added, “Though it will continue to contain the traditional girl-on-girl lezdom role playing, the site will target the psychological tortures of domination. ElectroSluts makes electricity sexy. It takes wires and electro-domination away from fantasy and brings it into reality.” With the launch of ElectroSluts, Kink. com has retired its flagship lesbian electro site, Wired Pussy. The company maintained that Starr will take a new and exciting artistic direction with ElectroSluts that is sure to please Wired Pussy members as well as new audiences. Current Wired Pussy members will automatically receive a subscription to ElectroSluts, in addition to full access to Wired Pussy’s archives. “We are thrilled to have Bobbi Starr take a new approach to electro-domination,” said Kink.com founder Peter Acworth. “Her ideas for ElectroSluts will not just revamp Wired Pussy but will create a new genre of lezdom electro-play that will be exciting to see unfold.”

All The Pretty Things... continued By Doghouse o I’m at my hunky cross-dressing red-headed neighbor’s again, across the little kitchen table from him, and we’re alone. His wife, Hawk-eyes, set us up like this once again taking an afternoon shift as a favor for a girlfriend and leaving me alone with her husband. He’s warmed up a little from the slab of ice he’d been the first couple times we’d been manipulated together like this by her- myself ohso willing to agree to “come on over for some coffee…” and keep an eye on her man for her. But the atmosphere is still pretty frosty in that little kitchen. The first time I showed up like that I was sure he was gonna kick my ass. The look on his face when he saw me being hustled in… damn! When she suddenly stood up and left us there, I thought he was gonna beat my ass and throw me out, or worse, but thank God he was polite, if not by any stretch cordial. I still thought maybe he was gonna cut me up and bury me in the desert that first time. This time, like every other, I kept to neighbourly and manly things, but I had decided that eventually I had to turn the conversation to the subject of the thing we had going on, and what was going to happen with it. I took the chance and asked him if we could talk about it. He didn’t say no, he just looked at the floor. I took that as a yes and started in. I had to apologize first for my actions. For wanting more from him than he was willing to give, and risking blowing his “cover”. He sure didn’t seem to like to talk about it but was struggling to anyway, as if there was something he was trying to express but couldn’t form his thoughts into words quite the right way to make sense of. He finally got it out that it was what he felt himself, inside, when I gave him that gift-box, and the way he felt about some of the things I’d said to him that had scared him the most… and I just about leapt up and grabbed him out of sheer fucking joy. He had to be kidding, really? Was he really telling the truth or just trying to make me feel better? He didn’t seem to be the kind of guy who worried about other people’s feelings too much. I mean, really, he wasn’t the “sensitive” type. It was taking such a huge effort for him to 12 | March 2012 | Issue #26
spit out the words to explain his feelings for me scared him more than my obvious feelings for him, that the sentiment had to be genuine. My mind slalomed back and forth across a slippery slope of fantasies at this happy turn of events. Taking him away in the middle of the night from Hawk-eyes and making a break for the mountains, his enraged shot-gun toting wife chasing after us, chief among them. I tried to keep myself from freaking out, from grabbing him in my arms and kissing him. It was hard enough just to look serious and not be sitting there grinning like an idiot at this news he was giving me, that he had feelings for me… I was over the moon. I just looked at him and let the moment warm between us, trying not to break the spell. I looked into his eyes and hoped he could see I felt it from him, and liked it. Well, hell, he knew I liked it, I just didn’t want to scare this prize buck off by making any sudden moves. Startle a fine animal like that, just when it is
most vulnerable, and it’ll bolt. Eventually, he leaned a little forward across the table and put out one of his big, scarred hands. I took it and squeezed. We sat there, for a minute, his hand in mine, looking at each other. I couldn’t stand the tension, couldn’t keep at arms length like this when what I really wanted to do most was hold this man, and love him. I stood up and moved over to him. he turned in his chair and I stood between his knees. He put his hands on my waist, and I put mine on his shoulders. “She threw that shit out” he said, and looked down at my feet. “I threw the rest of it out myself when she wasn’t looking.” “That’s ok, man,” I said, standing him up in front of me, “we don’t need it this time.” He brought his eyes up to mine and stared into them. I put my hands on either side of his face and moved my mouth toward his. We had done everything. I’d fucked him in every hole, filled him with cum, eaten his butt, fed him mine, fucked him till he was raw, but never had we kissed. Even the times I had just tried to hold him after fucking had been too much for him and he had broken out of my arms to cut any sense of “feeling”, short. Kissing had been
out of the question, but now, staring into his eyes, I put my lips on his, and he let me. It was like a dam burst inside him. The moment his lips touched mine he seemed to come alive. Our lips mashed together and suddenly our tongues met in the middle, mouths working at each other like starving people sucking at marrow, or the sweetest fruit. Noses and teeth banged together painfully but we kept sucking each others mouth and pressing each other closer, like trying to jam ourselves into one space, or become one body. Our eyes had closed. One hand around his back, my other hand searched under his wife-beater, feeling the coarseness of his thick red chest fur and the hardness of his ‘roid belly, covered in thick fur too. He crushed me to him, shuddering, and I fell deeper in love with him each time we breathed. I opened my eyes and looked at him, faces so close together. His eyes were squeezed shut, and a stream of silent tears had marked his cheeks. Damn, I thought. Twice in this year I’ve made a man cry. I closed my eyes and decided to keep both that I knew he’d cried, and a little shamefully, that he wasn’t the first this year, private and to myself.

We will all clean, condition, polish and buff our leathers together. Bring an item or two of leather you want to spruce up - be it boots, vests, chaps, corsets, caps, harnesses etc. Questions are encouraged throughout. Dominance Bondage - Two Knotty Boys Two Knotty Boys will show you rope techniques specifically for dominance and submission play. You’ll learn more than a dozen ways to restrain, control or train your submissive including fast and struggle-proof wrist bondage and advanced chest harnesses, a dynamic full-access hog tie, rope bit gags, basic rope CBT and nipple predicament bondage. Ways to orchestrate a scene, aggressive play and take-downs will also be included. You can come with a friend to practice with or come solo and work with a classmate. Please bring two pieces of rope: two 10’ long and two 20’-30’ long. This class offers plenty of supervised practice, peppered with lots of lighthearted humor. Couples recommended. Bring two 10-foot lengths and two 20- to 30-foot (preferably solid braid 3/8” diameter or thicker; however, hemp rope will also do).
of participants. Attendance is done in pairs to assure sanitary conditions. One person will insert the provided electrode, the other person will manipulate the power source and interchange the power source with other models so as to administer the different sensations each power source produces. Only one person in the pair will have the electrode inserted, and only one will hook up and administer the power source. Switching the electrode from one person to the other is not permitted for sanitation concerns. Attendance in pairs is mandatory for these reasons. Attendance is limited to nine couples and each will experience three different power sources. Participants will use one power source for a time, be instructed in its use, and then switch the power source until such time as all participants have experienced the various effects of all three power sources. At the end of the course, participants will be allowed to keep the electrode they have used. Cost is $75 per couple. This covers the expenses in providing an electrode to each participant pair, as well as clean up and sterility supplies. Participants need to be physically capable of inserting a one and a half inch diameter, four inch long cylinder either vaginally or anally as this is the size of the electrode used. Couples will be chosen by a random drawing. You must be registered for KinkFest to enter the drawing. To sign up, send an email to Electro Stim Class with your name, email address, and KinkFest registration number. The deadline for entering the drawing is 8 AM Thursday, March 1. Winners will be announced by noon March 1. If any workshop slots are not paid for by 8 AM March 15, those slots will be vacated and alternate winners will be notified. One entry per couple, please.

Next we will amp up the fisting volume with show and tell time: how the big kids play – double fisting, fisting in suspension, anal fisting, fisting front and back doors simultaneously… and much more. All genders and levels of experience welcome. FTM CBT: Genital Torment for Queer Bodies - Lee Harrington Let’s admit it- doing genital torment on transguys is different than doing it on other bodies. In some ways we get the best of all worlds- so let’s talk about our desires to torment, tease, punish and pamper our amazing flesh. After discussing the varieties of genitals out there to play with (and what we call them) in this category and how our hormones and modifications (or having had neither) have affected our CBT and sex, we will demonstrate and discuss a wide variety of torment options. Abrasion, piercing, bondage, clamps, caning… plus more advanced concepts like playing with trans genital humiliation will all be up for grabs. Add some dirty talking and negotiation skills into the mix- and watch us squirm! Getting Wet: G-Spot and Ejaculation - Felice Shays What makes a woman (or anyone with a vagina/front door, for that matter) soak the sheets? Where is that mysterious thing called the G-Spot? With straight talk and humor Felice Shays will discuss the anatomy, myths and realities of vaginal ejaculation, and how to find and stimulate the g-spot (yes, even via the ass!). Then comes the live squirt demonstrations! As time allows, Felice will help individuals and partners find their
g-spots so that they too might make lovely messes. Open to all genders, sexual orientations, single or partnered. Interrogation I - Master Trooper Frank, slave paul, slave willie The purpose of any given Interrogation is to retrieve information from the interrogatee. For purposes of those of us in the BDSM community, we can broaden the definition of an interrogation to include the recreational pursuit of dominating, captivating, physically abusing, torturing, and most importantly, psychologically mind-fucking the prisoner to the point that he or she gives up the previously planted information. In the process of extracting that information, the Interrogator is free to use the infliction of pain, electroshock, forced abnormal prolonged positions, food and sleep deprivation, beatings, mock execution, breath control, hypersound generation or sensory deprivation, painful bondage, and whatever you and the prisoner have negotiated prior to the session (if that is your relationship). Counter to this list is the most crucial tool in the Captor’s pocket, and that is psychological manipulation, to include becoming the prisoner’s friend and attempting to obtain cooperation. This workshop is a very involved and intricate class with the goal of giving the attendees the skills needed to negotiate, set-up, institute, produce and successfully complete a session with the interrogatee surrendering or “breaking” under the administered pain, pleasure or both. The psychological and physical dynamics will be discussed and demonstrated with my subject strapped into an interrogation chair. For more information go to www.kinkfest.org

fitness & health The discipline of fitness
By Ron Blake
You are the human resources manager and you get down to the last two candidates for the position. You thought decisions this difficult could never land in your lap, but here it is. Both applicants are outstanding and have the skills to move forward with success. You want to look for the one with that extra special something. It’s the fitness guy who runs marathons when he’s not punching the time clock. The fitness guy has tremendous discipline. He can train for five months for an event that only lasts a few hours. He can bypass the most fun events during that training period because he’s got his eye on the prize and knows he can’t give in to his temptations. This is the person you want when you have only two months to implement the new system throughout your corporate office. The fitness guy is determined and resilient. He knows what it is like to experience Murphy’s Law and has adapted quite well. He managed to finish all 26.2 miles of his fourth

marathon despite a nasty bout with diarrhea that added a staccato cadence to his race day. He’s even managed to make it to the starting line each time after alarm clock mishaps, insomnia, and freeway traffic congestion have tried in vain to yaw him from his course. Problems always seem to pop up at the most inopportune times in your nine office locations. The fitness guy is goal driven. He sets his goal finish times at the outset of his training and continuously works toward the light adorning the end of the tunnel. He wakes at 4AM on weekdays to get those training runs in before the roosters crow to wake the rest of us. He knows that doughnuts, coffee, and cigarettes aren’t part of the daily agenda and he steers clear of these barnacles of badness. He has consistently been a man with a plan. The fitness guy is healthy. People of his ilk tend not to call off work. They tend not to take six smoking breaks throughout the day. People of fitness tend to be more productive, creative, and punctual with better memory re-
tention and concentration than their counterparts who aren’t so adept at fitness. The fitness guy has excellent time management skills. He can wake before the sun and log twelve miles of running before a shower and breakfast have him out the door and to work. He puts in an honest day’s work before engaging in a one hour weight training session at the gym in the early evening. It’s then time to juggle the demands of the family and domestic duties before getting to bed for the required eight hours of sleep. Company projects work well with time management. As the interviewer, you want to hire that fitness enthusiast. As the interviewee, you want to be the fitness enthusiast and you want to talk about it during the interview process. I’ve run five marathons and numerous half marathons…anyone hiring? This health and fitness article is brought to you by that guy with original copies. That oxymoronic guy is Ron Blake and he can be found clearly misunderstood at myblakefitness.com.

Question & Answer
Male Chastity Devices - “Lock so NO load!” ccording to modern myth the chastity belt was used as an anti-temptation device during the Crusades. Supposedly when the knight left for the Holy Lands on the Crusades, his Lady would wear a chastity belt to preserve her faithfulness to him. There is no credible evidence that chastity belts existed before the 15th century, more than one hundred years after the last Crusade. However, the actual use, if any, of medieval chastity belts would have been very limited, as the metalworking of the times would have made it difficult to fashion a belt safe for long-term wear. But, who knows. For you young people who may have never heard of this type of device, a chastity belt is a locking item of clothing designed to prevent sexual intercourse. Mostly it was designed to prevent a woman from having sex with anyone other than with her husband, but may have also been used to prevent a woman from being raped when the husband was away. Later on we see chastity belts being designed with additional features to prevent masturbation. What? Read on. From the 18th century through the 1930s, masturbation was widely regarded as harmful in Western medicine. Numerous mentions can be found in medical journals of the time of the use of chastity belt-like devices to prevent masturbation in children and adolescents. Many designs for anti-masturbation devices were filed in the US Patent Office until the debunking of masturbation as a mental health problem in the early 1930s. Nowadays, chastity belts are sometimes used in BDSM play and in consensual relationships. They are a means for the wearer to surrender control over their sexual behavior either for sexual play, or as a long-term method of preventing infidelity or masturbation. They range from simple leather or plastic toys commonly sold by adult stores to expensive high-security stainless steel devic-
es made by a handful of specialist firms. Most of these new devices center on male chastity. You, or anyone else for that matter can tease your lover/partner and get him aroused but because he can’t get a full erection he can’t ejaculate or have an orgasm. Sadistic isn’t it. Types of Chastity Devices: From Birdlocked comes a revolutionary, state-of-the-art design in male chastity. Constructed of medical-grade silicone, the Birdlocked chastity device is as durable as it is discreet. The unique patented design provides a skin-safe, hypoallergenic alternative to traditional metal and plastic chastity models. While the assembly-free Birdlocked slides effortlessly over the genitals in one piece, once locked in place it is not only impossible to remove but indestructible to boot. Tread and trample as you may; the sheath of the Birdlocked is tear-resistant and will remain completely intact. The Birdlocked chastity device boasts exceptional features ideal for extended use, including 7 strategically placed holes throughout which allow for maximum ventilation around the penis. Also, the firm yet flexible silicone moves and shifts with the genitals, preventing pinching while appearing completely invisible under any type of clothing. The Birdlocked Chastity Device is available in both Classic Clear and Mini Clear and retails for about $130. The new CB 6000 Designer Line Male Chastity Kit is a superior humiliation or CBT device for those who are serious about keeping their submissive or slave in line. Both sanitary and discreet, this high quality, long term male chastity belt consists of a series of interlocking pieces that will torture your lover with his inability to get at his cock. Two guide pins hold the top pieces in place, and the narrow cage is connected to the ring with We'll Take You Where Others Won't
a locking pin running through the recessed center hole. Comfortable enough to sleep in (but not too comfortable) and discreet enough to wear undetected under clothing, the teasing possibilities are endless. The most effective, well designed long term chastity device to date, the CB-6000 cradles and support your lover’s cock while keeping it securely locked up, with slats for improved ease of urination, better ventilation and hygienic maintenance. Made from the same strong and lightweight medical grade polycarbonate plastic as the original CB 6000, the Designer Line features an elegant new chrome design. It retails for $160. The CB3000 Complete Package is a male chastity device designed specifically for men looking for a fit somewhere between the CB2000 and the Curve. The careful design allows for it to be worn with the utmost confidence and discretion. With several rings to choose from for a more personal fit the
CB3000 is lightweight and comfortable. The vented slots allow for excellent hygiene, easy bathing and drying. Use a silicone based lubricant to ensure movement and comfort. If properly lubricated and cleaned you should be able to wear the CB3000 night and day indefinitely -or until the key holder allows you to come out and play. The CB3000 comes in a zippered pouch with the cage, rings, locking pins, spacers, padlock and keys. Retails at $150. The Curve Cage is a male chastity device which works with the Curve Chastity Kit. The cage is constructed out of durable, clear polycarbonate. The slope of the cage makes the device virtually undetectable beneath clothing, and therefore very discreet. If you need something larger than the CB3000, the curve is perfect. The open slots allow for easy cleaning and excellent hygiene. Always use a silicone based lubricant in order for the penis to comfortably move while inside the cage. The Curve cage is a great way to upgrade without the cost of purchasing a new complete kit. Experience the exhilaration of giving up full control of your manhood for around $70. The Gates of Hell consists of anywhere from 3 to 9 metal rings, connected by a leather strap for male constraint and adornment. If you are just starting out with this type of play this is the best route to go at a cost of anywhere from $18.95 to $25.95 depending on how many rings. So there you have it!

GREEN SEX TIP!
Set the Mood with Candles Most candles aren’t green, and we’re not talking about where they fall on the color wheel. Candles are often made from paraffin wax, which is petroleum-based -- that means that when you burn a candle, you’re burning fossil fuels. Yes, those same fossil fuels that are linked to climate change. While you may think the few candles you burn at home will make little impact on climate change, think about this: Americans spend roughly $2 billion per year on candles (and that’s just the candles, not the accessories). And it takes 1 billion pounds of wax to keep up with the yearly demand for candles in the U.S. [source: National Candle Association]. Instead, choose candles made from more eco-friendly materials, such as soy, beeswax or palm oil -- the greenest options being the ones made locally (which eliminates the additional fuel used to ship the candles).
