Notes from mphoto 5 learning firey journal: During SAADE’s October meeting, there was a lot of talk about the Austin Mentor’s Program. Evidently, it’s an adjunct to SAADE, but a little apart. I don’t quite get it. Anyway, David Walker runs it and he has taken a liking to me and invited me to join a few others.

As I’ve now been “in the scene” for about six months, this is a great good fortune and good timing. This is really a new program. This is only the second year.  This time we get to spend about five hours with each of the assigned mentors, each of whom will teach us a single skill.


 

My schedule looks like this:

  • December 2001: fire play
  • January 2002: impact play—spanking, paddling, floggers
  • February; DM certification training + first aid
  • March: toybag basics
  • April: CBT + clips and clamps
  • May: electrical stimulation — violet wand and TENS
  • June: rope bondage
  • July: sensation play
  • August: submissives’ round-table
  • Sep: rough body play

(ADDED NOTE: David and I would go on to co-author and publish the first—and to this day the only—book on fire play. David had also co-founded SAADE, initially called: “School for Advanced American-style Dominants’ Education.”  It is an “education” club as opposed to GWNN, which remains a “play” club.  GWNN stands for “Group With No Name. You could be a member of this club without showing any ID. You could sign play party waivers with an “X.”

I had a very good experience in the Mentors Program. It enabled me to meet the most senior members of the Austin community right from the beginning of my BDSM life.  By the following October, I at least knew quite a bit about what I didn’t know, but knew who could bring me further along the path.)
