Once I had finished getting ready for the night in my harness, Nasty Pig jeans, and Nasty Pig jockstrap, I headed down to the lobby to see who was down there. I ran into some friends and took the IML-sponsored bus to Excalibur where the Black & Blue Ball was hosted. It’s the party for everyone that had been working the whole weekend. There are a lot of vendors there, a lot of locals and guys that know to stay around. The awesome music was done by DJ Ted Eiel. Check him out and subscribe to his iTunes podcast. He keeps a constant beat going, which is very important to me.
The party technically started at 8pm, but when I arrived at about 9:30, was when it seemed to really be starting. I chatted and danced with some friends, including a guy a recognized from when I lived in Minneapolis. He’s a hottie, but fairly sure I’m not his type. It was nice to get to know him because we never chatted while I was in MN. After a bit I ended up coat checking my pants and just wore my jockstrap around for the night. I should have done it right away and avoided the long coat check line.
At most leather events you can find sex going on somewhere. Just look for the most secluded space. At Excalibur if you go to the very top floor, that’s where you find it. I only wandered through there once. It was a little too dark to find the hot guys, but there was sucking, fucking and everything going on.
They had the IML contestants up on the stage and brought the winner, Mr Texas out. From the sounds of it, he’ll do very well, but he gets pretty shy in situations like being on stage at a club dancing… lol.
I got felt up a bit and talked with some hotties, but none that looked available and were really my type. Overall I think I was a little too picky at IML this year, but I still had a fantastic time. I talked with the guy I took the taxi back to the hotel with from the night before. Apparently he heard that I blogged about him, but he seemed cool with it. Which one of you blabbed your mouth though… lol (no worries)
I ended up cabbing it back to the hotel with my roommate from last year. He was getting pretty drunk and thought it might be good for him to get back to his bed. The night as a whole was very good.
