So if you follow my twitter, you already know this… but I got the privilege of meeting Tynan Fox recently! Some of my travels took me his direction, and he was able to come up and show me around.
Now, some of the bad news… we did not get to play. Meaning no one got tied up. This was basically a social visit. Still, I wasn’t one to argue. Meeting him at all was still a thrill for me. In a way, I’m sort of getting the reputation of the guy who meets kinksters but only talks to them (as I have with atlloki and TheUAJock). I guess part of me does want to get to know them as person first. It’s so fascinating to follow a person online for a number of years, and then actually see and interact with them in real life, and to put an actual voice and personality with the images and text. Also, most of these have been just the circumstances… either I or they were on a time schedule, and there was no where private to go at the time. So talk it is.
I’ve known Tynan online for a number of years, and am very aware and greatly respectful of his fantastic community outreach work in making kink and fetish more acceptable, mostly via public speaking in the college lecture circuit. We’ve chatted a bit before, and we’ve always liked each other’s blogs.
I was in his area as part of a layover between flights, and he was generous enough to pick me up at the airport. We grabbed a quick brunch, and visited the ever-so-cheesy-but-you-still-must-go-once Mall of America, which was nearby. For those of you rolling your eyes (and somewhat legitimately), I was on a time table, and there’s not a lot of other options near the airport. And to his credit, Tynan himself basically never goes either. So I have some extra appreciation for him putting up with it. He was a great sport, and we even engaged in a cheesy tourist attraction while there.
I do have to say that meeting people like Tynan, who is kinky as all fuck, in a very vanilla setting is quite the surreal experience. And while I was disappointed no one would get tied up, it was really just as cool to just get to know him better. Since we both know quite a bit of the basics of each other from our online presense, we were able to just jump right into a wide variety of topics, some kinky, some not. I can’t reveal everything, as we did share some personal tidbits with each other, but I can say that I was impressed how seriously and accomplished he is at his nursing job. It is not a secret that he is a nurse… he mentions that often on his own blog. I did ask him if anyone at his hospital has ever recognized his more kinky persona (the answer is no, but I image who ever is the first will be in for quite a shock! Then again, if you are in the hospital, you may have other things on your mind). Also not known: he got to tape up a minor gay celebrity (and I will not reveal who, but it is pretty cool–and he’s generally not known as being specifically kinky). And his business, Twin Cities Leather, while in an unforeseen patch now, was doing quite well, and hopes to return in fuller capacity as soon as they can. In the meantime, if you’re in the area, they are open by appointment. Just call ahead and ask. And I believe you can still order online. I am not an affiliate with them, so I do not profit from this in any way (suck it google), but I do think the information is good for others to know.
He dressed very casually in a very sexy form fitting shirt, plaid shorts, and flip flops. (Of course.) I sneaked a pic while he got some food, but I know he wouldn’t mind. 😉 At the moment, he’s also sporting a goatee and beard, and while that’s not normally my thing, it looked really hot on him. And I’m not just saying that to be nice. However, he did point out that now duct tape does not stick as well. Ah, the problems of being a kinkster. It was also fun to ask him about his opinions of other kinksters. You know, gays gotta gossip a bit. 😀 And it turns out he’s a funny guy in general, more so than I would have expected!
And while we didn’t get to play per se, he did manage to find a few opportunities where he publicly hand gagged me. On the surface it looked very “pal around” to the public at large, but believe me, I was caught off guard in a good way. I rarely do or get hand gagged, but I forget how hot that is. And at the restaurant, his feet did wander my way a couple of times, and let’s just say it’s been ages since I’ve played footsie. He is such a fucking tease, and he’s going to hell, lol.
Finally, after walking the mall about 2 1/2 times, he (and I) had to go. But before saying good bye, we snuck off to his car, he tossed off his flip flops, sat across the seat, and plopped his feet in my lap for a small massage. Since it was still semi-public in the parking lot, it was mostly my hands, but I did get in a quick sniff and kiss or two. Sadly, since it was early in the morning and he’d been wearing flip flops the whole time, there wasn’t much odor there. But, ah, his feet are as sexy as you’d think.
For those of you who don’t know, his own foot fetish isn’t really a foot fetish. He’s not really turned on by the look of a foot. Like, if he stared at a picture of a foot, it wouldn’t do much for him. But it’s the smell that gets to him. He wrote more about his thoughts on the matter on his own blog, here’s a direct link to the post. In any case, that’s why you don’t really see him having any profiles on the foot social sites. As for me, well, I can jerk off to a picture of a foot just fine. And I like the smell, too. In fact, as I told him, if I were ever forced to choose between feet and bondage… I think I’d choose feet. But to me, the two go hand in hand (or hand in foot. Or foot in mouth. Or… you get the idea). He’s more the other way around, but both of us can very much appreciate being tied up and having a smelly foot shoved in our face… as a top or bottom. So we’ll seriously need to find a room if we meet up again.
So this is just some of the interesting stuff that comes up when you chat with a kinkster for 3 1/2 hours. It was a great time, and he really went out of his way to visit with me. I greatly appreciate it. And he did say I was quite sexy and would look great in duct tape. I’m sure he says that to all the guys, but I’ll choose to believe it’s true. 🙂
