Well hello My little subbie fans, it's been a while.... I've very been busy.
Part 2 of My delicious weekend away unfortunately got eaten by My computer! I may re write it, one day, but not today.... today I have exciting news that I'd like to share.
I finally have a fully dedicated dungeon session room, I'm so excited!
Finding an actual underground, basement dungeon made of old solid stone just wasn't happening, so I have recreated the suburban next best thing in an upstairs room of a nice modern house.... It reminds Me of a quiet librarian who presents a conservative exterior, but underneath she's got her leather and latex on.... a lovely naughty secret, what fun.
From the exterior it looks like any other new build bedroom, boringly plain and unassuming, but step through the threshold and be transported to a dark and stony dungeon.
Old timbers, riddled with age, form the framework to hold the old stone walls up. Embedded with hooks and chains, scored by the finger nails of many desperate attempts at escape by the poor souls who dare to enter, the timbers have stories to tell.
The ancient A frame towers up to the ceiling, calling you to it, instructing you to reach up a let yourself be tied, to submit, to let go....
I have opted for an A frame instead of a Saint Andrews cross. I find the cross a bit bulky and cumbersome plus the A frame allows Me much better access to all areas. Granted the cross can give you something to lean against, should your knees start to fail you, however, once you are securely spread eagled to My A, you can sag all you like, it's bolted to the house's frame, you're going no-where! ;)
With My lighter and more playful implements hanging from the iron rack nearby, it's so handy. I don't even have to move to switch from a flogging to a caning.... I've been designing and making some canes Myself, from very stingy and strong Tasmanian oak. They don't look intimidating, but boi they are good ;)
I will be adding to the dungeon ceiling a sling and pulley system, in order to be able to lift and suspend* My subjects to a more convenient height for My proddings and probings. While My Torture Table is great in some aspects, it lacks in others. I do not appreciate such limitations and so, in with the sling, asap.
* Please note; While I am interested in the art of shibari, I have no experience in that area, and as such, I will not be offering that level of suspension play.
The new venue also has amazing shower facilities; huge double shower, two shower heads with built in seating and footrests - the perfect way to end a session.
I look forward to beating you there soon,
