Showing Some Rubberskin

Rubberskin's latest vids show his handiwork in the workshop making awesome new latex outfits.

What do you think of the new Green Lantern? HOT!

And his new Ezee Glide latex suit. I am curious as to what the difference is, that he requires no lube to put it on. Chlorinated, perhaps?

E-Stim Cumshot

This is mildly entertaining to watch ;)

Rubber Invasion

Ooh! Scary!  This is a great post-video put together by Mr. Rubbout, Mitch.  I find it quite entertaining :)  This is the possible beginning of another conceptual marketing plan we are putting together.

Did you get the theme? Rubbout 21 is April 5-8, 2012!

As for my lack of posting lately, meh...tired and stressed with work (what's with all these late Wednesday night production deployments?); I haven't really been feeling the rubber love lately.  Spring is horribly delayed here which is keeping most of us in extended hibernation.  Hopefully that will change soon.  I've been out for a few rides and runs the past couple weeks in between rainstorms.

I'm putting together a Rubbout press release with Mitch tonight for Recon, we have a planning meeting for a Fetish Cruisey-T around Pride weekend (probably in late July) on Thursday and a volunteer appreciation party on May 14.  Still busy!

Mr. P and I drank too much on the Easter long weekend so I'm vowing to lay low until mid-May, until the Rubbout party, and Las Vegas the following weekend.  Can't wait!  Until then, I will try to get back into blogging mode.

There is a Black Saturday at Pumpjack this weekend, despite being a temporary teetotaller, I plan to rubber up and go out and have some fun.

To Our Rubbout Sponsors....a big THANK YOU!

Hello everyone,

Well, Rubbout 20 is in the history books and across the board it looks like we have had a smashing success on our hands with lots of local buzz generated and a lot of out-of-town attendees that are returning home with lots of good stories about their weekend in Vancouver playing with the local rubbermen, taking in the sites, attending the events and reuniting with friends. I had the opportunity to meet a lot of new people, and despite the stress and sleeplessness hosting an event inevitably brings, I speak on behalf of the Rubbout organizing committee when I say that we celebrated the anniversary in style and now are keen to start planning next year's event with a new committee, new opportunities, new goodwill, new relationships and new ideas to drive us.

If you are interested in some of our numbers:

We sold 102 weekend passes, up from 66 last year. We had 33 weekend guests, up from 12 last year (135 weekend attendees in total! Amazing!)

We sold 120 Saturday night dance event tickets and had 66 guests (including performers, volunteers, and sponsors).

The total number of attendees was 321 for Saturday night, which exceeded our expectations.

We doubled the amount of money generated from raffle ticket sales from last year.and had 90 guests at the Sunday brunch which was when the raffle tickets were drawn and the silent auction took place...all new records.

Overall we are happy; we broke even on the expenses versus revenue generated this year exclusive of the raffles and auctions, with which we have created a legacy fund which will be used as seed money for next year's installment of Rubbout, number 21.

As always we are having several debriefing meetings to see how we can improve on things for next year, particularly surging ahead further with raffles and auctions on the sponsorship side. We feel that Rubbout has become a significant enough event in Vancouver that we can start doing some more complicated negotiations for hotel and venue hosts for next year and improve our marketing effect with the goodwill we hope we have created with our media sponsors this year.

So, none of this would have been possible without the generosity you, the sponsors, showed us leading up to Rubbout 20, and I give a heartfelt thank you to all of you for showing your support and having faith in us as we look to Rubbout growing bigger and better in the coming years. We couldn't have had the party we did without you! I hope that you will consider supporting us again in the coming years as well. This year we took a big leap of faith in ourselves that we could pull off something twice the size of anything Rubbout has done previously and we certainly hope that you see the benefits from the sponsorship you provided us. I would appreciate any feedback from you as the year progresses, whether you felt the sponsorship was effective or not and some ideas of what you might like to see from us as a growing event for sponsors to get exposure of their products and services.

We are hoping to amalgamate our web and email systems by next year, so I anticipate I will be contacting you from a new email address in the future. However, **** and **** will stay in my possession for the forseeable future if you need to get a hold of me, or alternatively you can contact me personally at ****.

Lots of pictures from the weekend are now available at

Once again, thank you so much!

How To Suppress Your Gag Reflex


Do you gag easily? There's no need to accept it as a limitation. With some simple steps you can lose your gag reflex. WikiHow offers the following tips:

1.Breathe through your nose. Taking a nasal decongestant beforehand can help clear the nasal passageways and facilitate breathing, if your nose is congested.

2.Lift both of your legs if you're sitting or lying down on your back. Tightening your abdominal muscles might help stop gagging.

3.Numb your soft palate. When an object touches the soft palate (far back in the roof of your mouth), it triggers the gag reflex. You can use a numbing throat spray to soothe the soft palate, or a gel that's normally used to relieve tooth pain. The effects should last for about an hour, and your soft palate will be less sensitive.

4.Put a little table salt on your tongue.

5.Hum. You might find that it's difficult to gag and hum at the same time.

6.Beware the gag reflex in the morning. Some people report that they're more likely to gag earlier in the day. Try to schedule the gag-inducing activity for the late afternoon or evening instead.

7.Relax. The gag reflex is triggered by a combination of psychology and physiology. For some people, the psychological aspect will play a larger role. Maybe you've had a traumatizing experience at a doctor or dentist's office in the past, or in general, you have a fear of losing control.

8.Disengage your gag reflex. By gradually getting your soft palate accustomed to being touched, you can minimize the gag reflex, or perhaps even get rid of it completely. This is the first step that sword swallowers must take and it does require effort and patience over time:

Find out where your gag reflex starts. This can be done by simply using your toothbrush to brush your tongue. The point nearest the front of your tongue that makes you gag is where you want to concentrate.

1.Brush your tongue right where your gag begins. Yes, you'll gag. It will be unpleasant, but not for long. Spend about 10 seconds brushing that area (and gagging), and call it a night.

2.Repeat the process over the next few nights in the exact same spot. You'll notice you gag less each time you do it.

3.Increase the brushing area. Once you can touch your toothbrush on that spot without gagging, it's time to move the toothbrush further back. Try brushing 1/4-1/2 inch behind where your gag used to begin. This is your new starting point. Repeat the process as you did in the first spot.

4.Continue moving the brush further. Each time you move the toothbrush back, your gag has been desensitized in the previous spot. Keep moving it further and further back until you've reached the furthest visual point of your tongue. Eventually, the toothbrush will come in contact with the soft palate, if it hasn't already.

5.Be persistent. This whole process should take approximately a month to complete. When it's all said and done, you should be able to have a doctor swab the back of your throat without gagging. You might have to re-do the process from time to time, as your reflex may return if you don't.
And there you have it. You're now ready for the weekend. Good luck!
A girlfriend of mine who is a professional sword swallower told me the best way to train your gag reflex is to practice using long narrow rubber balloons (the type that balloon animals are made of), putting them down your throat in persistent training sessions until the gag reflex is gone. Voila!

The Neverending Perv-out

Collector2 returned to Vancouver from his post-Rubbout trip to Seattle last night, and as we had planned before, he was going to let me try out his hogsack and apply mummification to me. I'm still trying to catch up on sleep so originally didn't think we'd be able to accomplish everything, however once we were on the way it all went as planned. I had a blast! I'd never tried either so enjoyed the experience and got to learn a whole bunch in the process.
First of all was the hogsack with electro. I was enjoying the rubber encapsulation to a point; I have the hips of an old man and an old workout injury in my shoulder, so first of all I couldn't keep my arms behind my back in the sack as they should be. After awhile my hips and ankles got so sore with the cross-legged position I was in I had to get out.
The mummification was much more fun. Collector2 took his time putting everything together. He had had the idea of what he was going to turn me into quite awhile ago so it was fun to see him turn his plan into action. Here is the process of turning Rubber Canuck into a Rubber Canuck Mummy! :)

Rubbout Recovery

It's now 48 hours after Rubbout's completion. I am very happy to say Rubbout 20 - XX Rated has been deemed a great success, and despite a few logistical glitches here and there, things ran quite well. The fact that this year's party was twice (and in some cases, triple) the size of previous years with the inclusion of some events that had never been done before on the Rubbout weekend, we are generally happy with the how things turned out. It looks like we sold out at the Slick Dance, and after the numbers are crunched, I really hope we have an event in the black...wouldn't that be appropriate? :)

The crew that put on Rubbout 20 is completely comprised of volunteers. We hired an event producer to manage the Slick Dance, but other than that all nine events were put together by a hard-core team here in Vancouver that consistently stops at nothing to get this event up and flying. I can't thank the volunteers and organizing group enough for what they did to get the Rubbout 20 weekend to what it ended up being. I think there will be lots of guys heading back to their home cities around North America and Europe with lots of great stories to tell about their wild weekend in Vancouver.

We have so many good and bad points to take away and table in our debriefing meeting this weekend. Mitch, Rob, Doug...I can't thank you guys enough for all the effort you put into making this happen! I am excited about working with Doug and Rob on next year's event...we will be a force to be reckoned with (with Mitch's behind-the-scenes guidance, of course).

I can certainly appreciate why Mitch wants to step down from lead organizer role after Rubbout 20. It is so much work to put something like this on. I am still groggy and fighting cancres and cold sores due to the stress and sleeplessness this event created for me prior to and during the weekend. I think I remember where all the bruises can from...

Granted that the scope of this event was double what had ever been previously done, but there was so much to contend with.

Looking at my own performance over the weekend, I learned so much about myself and took a big leap forward in my event planning and coordinating skills since I had never done anything like this before either. Prior to this my expertise was in organizing sporting events; the running event at the 2008 Calgary North America Outgames, numerous years of planning Stage Races on behalf of my cycling team in Calgary and of course numerous seasons of team coordination as President and Treasurer of the cycling team over the course of seven years. I have a lot to take away from this event both personally and professionally. I didn't realize how big of a control freak I am until I had to deal with problems with the events I was coordinating. I also realized that you can depend on some people to follow through with what they say they will, and others, not so much. You definitely need to determine this beforehand, however.

The outcome of an event cannot be taken personally. You are never going to make everyone happy, and some people are going to point out things that irritate them or blow them away that you will never have thought of.

I am excited about the next decade of Rubbout. I get enthusiastic thinking about where the event may head in the next couple of years, the next five, the next ten. I think having it in Vancouver gives us a unique opportunity/challenge to keep it fresh and new since the Village is generally concentrated and the businesses that support the event seem to appear and disappear as quickly as the participants on the weekend do! :D

So...for those of you that couldn't make it this year, I hope you will consider coming next year. I really can't see Rubbout becoming anything but bigger and better!

In the meantime, I am going to spend this week sleeping and recovering. I will eventually write up my weekend review, but for right now I am just enjoying having nothing to do in the evenings but hang out with Mr. P and start getting back to my normal routine again. As you might suspect, I had absolutely no time to take pictures but you can be assured there will be more than enough of them appearing on the Net over the next couple of weeks.

It's Begun....

It's very hard to believe from this perspective, but Rubbout 20 is actually here! The crazy weekend starts tonight with the Leather Archives and Museum presentation on the history of leather in Vancouver hosted by Rick Storer of Chicago. Afterwards, who knows? I've had a friend from Chicago staying with me since Tuesday and another one from Los Angeles coming in tonight. They move to the hotel tomorrow and another group from Saskatchewan flops at my place for the weekend, possibly with a visit from the Boy from Whistler and some friends from Vancouver Island. I may just stay at Mr. P's for most of the weekend as he only lives minutes away from the action in Davie Village (for perspective I live 15 minute walk away! Zounds! ;) ).

I've shed the cotton, it's latex from now until Sunday night. I'm so excited to see all the friends that are coming this weekend!

I've been a bit of a stressball the past couple weeks getting everything lined up for this weekend. I am coordinating the Recon Dark Party and the M2M Play Party tomorrow night, and after that I'm hoping to have a relaxing and fun Saturday as I don't really have any more big responsibilities until Sunday at Brunch. There's still a lot more running around today though, god willing I don't end up with the flu or a cold at the end of all this!

Anyways, I'll try and post updates here as they come. Stay tuned to Leatherati Live over the weekend as L8xDad will be here and broadcasting!

Sorry, I'd love to write more, but there are things to do. Comparatively, next week is going to be SO relaxing! :)

Serious Work

SlickItUp takes their work very seriously. David and the crew must have SO much fun making these ads! :)

Commercial Latex

It's cool to see latex in product commercials....too bad it's still considered the punchline to the joke or meant to instill trauma into people.

Shopping at Tesco for talc? You know it was some fruit in the marketing department that thought that one up! LOL

Acrobatics porn shrouded in athletic prowess and a bit of genetic gift. Sprinkled with spandex and sequins. It's beautiful to watch and humbling to witness what the human body is capable of.
