I Felt Your Presents . . .

If there's one tradition I'm going to jump on at this year, it's "the bandwagon". (Picture came from here.)

Winter Wonderland

The English Mansion Year-End Extravaganza

At the chilly end of the year Mistress Sidonia makes her annual arse-warming . . . I mean heart-warming gesture:

Double updates to end the old year, and begin the new.

TG XMaS Ball & Boat Weekend

Friday 4th. December: XMas Ball @ Electrowerkz.



Rapidly followed by The XMas Boat.



Saturday 5th. December


But wait . . .


Not to be out-done, TG have re-named their event . . . and produced a second artwork for it:



For now it's the "Winter Wonderland Ball". 


Yes, TG seem to have adopted R.U.B.'s policy of re-naming events (and creating a new graphic) between announcing an event and it happening. They even have two identical web pages for it. Or two addresses which link to the same page. The 'Xmas Ball' is now the 'Winter Wonderland Ball'.

Perhaps they should have done it the other way round; The English Mansion had already used Winter Wonderland for their festive bonus season by the 13th.:

Never Knowingly Proof-Read . . .

Shiny Glitter Ball

Club R.U.B. rarely show a coherent advertising policy on the web, with changing event names and dual pages and posters being the norm, but this one's a new one to me:

That date gives thirteen options - assuming that the '1' is correct. (And given their track record so far, I'm not overly confident about that.)

Except it'll be a Saturday, of course. (The 12th!)

"Beware of the Cane"???


Night of the Cane: November 15th


More pressingly Torture Garden are holding two balls in October . . . 


. . . no, not those!


The second Hallowe'en Ball (31th, it says on their website) is already sold out.



The first (24th) . . . you might be lucky with.

They are still selling tickets for Belle Epoch (also 24th, afternoon) - but there aren't any left?

Club R.O.B.?

One notes the flyer for Club R.U.B.'s Victorianna Gothica:

Does Ishmael know that The Firm's pet spider is moonlighting on R.U.B. flyers? Let's wait and see if she's on the 18th Annual Rubber Awards one in November.

(I assume that the scarlet woman is Victori-Anna of the title?)

We Now Return To R.U.B.

All genned up from the Mistress Workshop? Plenty left for September!

The September Medical Appointment event is currently re-named Psycho Ward.

(Keen followers of R.U.B. may have noticed that it was also briefly Emergency Room.)

Sunday, 30 August 2015

Remember, Remember . . .

. . . The 4th of September(?)

Torture Garden are holding their September Ball at The Electrowerkz on Friday 4th September.

Just thought a reminder might be in order, since RUB have a tall posting below.

It Must Be R.U.B.

Pausing only for an afternoon's Mistress Workshop in Hackney on August 29, Club R.U.B. will hit the ground running in September with a slew of stuff.

In order to give others a look-in on my homepage I have collated the R.U.B. stuff here.
Nurse Valentine from Skullgirls

This picture used because the linked page has a very nursey bias. For those who prefer Christmas, look at the 2013 Page.

It's out of date now, of course, but there are still some pretty pictures.

September Ball

Torture Garden

Choose Your Poison

Saturday September 12th

For those with a schoolie disposition New Grange Manor are holding their next school day.

And for medical night-birds there is the Club Rub Medical Appointment.

Poison: Do not exceed the recommend dose

Sunday, 2 August 2015

Ah, Blogger it!

One usually recalls Mistress Sidonia (von Bork, of The English Mansion) in 'typical' Domme mode, probably because that's how we most often see her. (When not blindfolded.)

Here's a day when She felt like a change of pace, and went instead for a stockinged and suspendered saucy schoolgirl look:

I can't say I disapprove, not that I was looking too closely . . .

I was happily reminded of the day when this photo appeared in a Tweet last month.

Are we allowed to link to Twitter here? Ah, Blogger it!

NotC 2015

The Firm have released the date of this year's event.

What do you call a Festival of Kink?


July 25 - 26th

The Midlands are hosting another weekend for the pervley curious - or the curiously pervy.

Term of Endearment

Club R.U.B. go old school . . . with Old School.

AKA Schools Out for Summer?

AKA School Days??

Saturday 18th. (July, obviously.)

The R.U.B. Events Steering Committee have decided
on the theme, but clearly can't decide on a name.

I note that their webpage still says “Whether your a
school boy or girl” - ah, the joys of cut'n'paste!

And also "capon back to front".

A chicken on your head? Backwards???

. . . and “pilmsoles”. There must be something afoot.

Lost at Sea?

Found on The Boat after clearing the decks:

  • A flannel
  • A pair of sunglasses
  • A lightweight jacket
  • A make-up bag with afro comb
  • And another jacket

Contact Ishmael to claim them.

Time'n'Tide (Two)

The Boat 22 is sold out, and the returns list is closed.

Ishmael has kindly written a handy guide to getting there.

Here's where the pier is.

A Twist Next Time

Ok, so here's the proper flyer for Club R.U.B.'s Gender Bender.

Now called Gender Benders, but still on Saturday 20th. June.

I note that their webpage says “Whether your a school boy or girl” - is that a school-boy error?

 (And “laples on the jacket” - have spelling-checkres suddenly become expensive?)

Last Train to Wonderland

The title may be a mixed metaphor, but it's a mixed up world, oh shook up world, except for Alice.


Club R.U.B. : 18th Birthday

Saturday 18th April


Club R.U.B. reprise their Alice in Wonderland theme for their eighteenth birthday bash.


Whaddaya mean, only 'four candles'?

Kim (& co.) welcome you to their Alice-in-Wonderland themed Eighteenth Birthday Bash.

I wasn't struck with the playing-card suggestion for an Alice outfit, so here's a couple of mine:

Which will you choose - the Waders-and-Corset or the Shorts/Stockings/Flasher-Mac ensemblé?

Both have a pleasingly strappy aspect -

Strappy Birthday, R.U.B.!

Top Model Wanted

Peter Birch has made the following request:


" I have an opportunity to work with a very beautiful model from Cardiff on Sunday April 12th, and I'm hoping to get some shots for flyers, book covers and general promotion. Would anybody like to take the domme role? "

You need to be female, able to provide somewhere to shoot and gloriously oblivious to having photographs of you doing kinky things to other women floating around cyberspace.

Any takers please contact me and I'll pass your message on.

Absent Friends

Mistress Buffy Brown is regrettably unable to be at Detention, but did sponsor the flyer anyway - bless.

She will however be visiting London later in the month - April the 26th and 27th, to be precise.


P. S. The previous entry is not to be taken too seriously - there are clues . . .

April School

In an even-more-insane-than-usual radical departure, Ishmael has decided that the pupils will be caning the teachers at Detention,  this year's April School's Day.

Saturday, 28 March 2015


As if you could actually find the old one*, Ishmael has done a new FAQ especially for L.C.P.S. Queries.


 *Perhaps he should consider awarding two tickets to the first person to find it?

It's Hard to Believe . . .

. . . she's eighteen already.

Club R.U.B.'s 18th birthday will be held on April 18! (See what they did there?)


Details have yet to be announced - they're probably sleeping off last night's Mental Oriental - but the theme is broadly Alice in Wonderland.


In absence of any concrete information here are two kinky Alice-based looks you might like to replicate.
