During July I flew to Denver to teach two workshops at Thunder in the Mountains. It was the tenth anniversary of holding the event and my first time there. I had a lot of good experiences the weekend, but the highlight was being tied up by Midori during my class on "rope bondage for amateur escape artists". The class then stayed behind during the lunch hour and insisted that I escape. It took my just over 22 minutes and it was a wonderful way to celebrate my birthday.

One of the first leather friends I made in America was Scott Erickson, who lives in Boston, Massachusetts. Since then Scott has won the title Mr Boston Leather 2004, competed at International Mr Leather, won the Pantheon of Leather New England Regional Award for 2007, and he's currently the Vice-President of the Bay State Marauders and the co-chair of the New England Leather Alliance. He kindly agreed to be interviewed for this column:

Have fun, look after yourselves and the people you play with.

Best wishes,

John Pendal
International Mr Leather 2003
