“I live in the southern Willamette Valley, which has its own unique kink culture. Our scene evolved not so much from the gay leather scene, but from a fusion of small groups that met up through classifieds in kink and swinger magazines and coalesced eventually with the beginnings of polyamorous and pansexual groups, when those identities were first being labeled as such. We are a culturally distinct little pocket, which I think surprises a lot of people. Trying to respect and conserve that to a certain extent has been a motivator for me. I came into the scene here, even though I’ve been kinky since before I had words for that, and the people who introduced me to it left me with a lot of respect for their approach, their wisdom, and their generosity. I’ve tried hard to pay that forward.

I started giving an occasional class or party in my home years ago, and then began hosting regular monthly parties and classes. We are fortunate to live in an area that has a very active scene, and there’s a lot of demand for venues. It’s also pretty economically depressed, and has not had good luck keeping commercial dungeons open. One thing we struggle with here is keeping our unique flavor from being overrun by the increasingly homogenous creeping corprokink commercialization that’s encroaching everywhere. I had a partner, who’s dead now, who incidentally did feel quite alienated by the kink culture here – he was from England, and enculturated by gay leathermen – and he’d say, “We don’t have a leather community. We have leather consumers and we have leather entrepreneurs.” So I and my comrades, we promised each other that we would never charge for parties, that we would never charge for education, that we would keep taking in new people and making space for them to take their own projects in their own directions for as long as we could. And I think we succeeded to a large extent. We’ve done the monthly parties, tastings events, hands on topping courses for new tops covering many activities, oral sex workshops, sensual massage, toy making, a panel on D/s, etc., and hosted groups like MaST in our space. We joked that if nothing else, this forced us to clean the house at least once a month.

I’ve also done stuff other places. As I said, we’re a community, so I do things at other people’s houses – I’ve done demos, lectures, given tastings, etc.., I’ve been a presenter at small regional kink events. Nothing too impressive. Also, I am now a partner with my partner (haha!), Sanngetall, on the AnimaExposed project – as he puts it, “in front of and behind the camera.” I model, edit, and assist in many ways.

If you wanted a way to distill my relationship to kink, I guess the easiest way to say it would be that it’s always been a part of me – I couldn’t get rid of it even when I tried. D/s, especially, is too much a part of my sexuality. After I quit trying to reject it and embraced it instead, because of various circumstances of my life, kink became an important locus of my activism and organizing, which will always be a part of me, too. That’s why they call me Justice.” – Justice
