The summer wind came blowin in from across the sea...
lordmorpheous

Now that my summer travels are coming to a close, I wanted to take a moment and thank everyone that I have crossed paths with - new friends and strengthening those friendships with the wonderful people across the globe I have known for years. From the midnight Blvd wanderings in Paris, to witnessing a beautiful kink scene blossoming in Ireland; from the architectural beauty of Vienna to machine guns and moonshine in Tennessee; from bbq so good you would sell your children for it in Florida to kinky pool parties out of control, all of you have made this a wonderful summer for me. It doesn't feel like I have been away from home for almost 2 months but I now see my travels winding down and drifting away like a summer wind. I am so very thankful for everyone who touched my life while I lived out of a suitcase and hauled my camera around after me to capture all the beautful moments as well as the shennanigans. It is time to wander back home to Toronto and look forward to what the Autumn adventures hold, especially the Morpheous Bondage Extravaganza. and catching up with my 'hood and friends back home. But for one more week I am going to keep my toes buried in the sand here in Florida and try to slow down time until I have to climb aboard that big old jet plane bound for the Great White North. My sincerest thanks to you all.

lordmorpheous

The body of my education and photography work over the past decade is now archived in the Sexual Representation Collection at the Bonham Centre for Sexual Diversity Studies at the University of Toronto. The Mandate of the SRC is to collect and maintain materials relevant to the study of sexual representation and to make them available for scholarly research and it is with my deepest sincerity that I accept this honour. Thank you to the curator Nicholas Matte for this wonderful opportunity.

Thanks to Queens University
lordmorpheous

I wanted to take a moment and thank Dr. Carol Pukall of Queen's University for inviting myself and elle to come and speak to her third year psych class on Human Sexuality a few weeks ago. It was nice to see the room overflowing with interested minds and if you were in the audience, thank you for your warm welcome and intreging questions. You were all very respectful and I indeed got all of my toys back after handing them all around the auditorium for show and tell.  If you have any questions, don't hesitate to email me  LM@lordmorpheous.com and put "Queens" in the subject line so I know  to give it priority. 

Also congrats to the two students that walked away with a copy of my first book "How to be Kinky: a beginner's guide to BDSM" - you have one of the last copies of the first edition before it goes into a second printing.

Cheers!
Morpheous

The next book is coming!

The merging of sexuality and bicycles culminated in the Bike Porn Festival last night in Toronto with Reverend Phil!  Not only did my crew and I put together a great bike bondage installation, I expanded on the original installation in 2008 that I did in the same space.  Here is a pic of the final installation.  Also, here are my boys - GM Hedon and Serenity 9 who I asked to participate as riggers. After the screening we spent the evening watching the Goldsprint races, dancing to some fantastic Detroit DJ's and taking turnsstringing up newbies in rope bondage as well as a local celebrity: Christine from the Naked News. Thanks to everyone who made it an awesome time and if you missed out, Ottawa is the Bike Porn's next stop.

Cheers!

Bike Porn and Shibari Suspension all rolled into one this Saturday night in Toronto!
lordmorpheous

The Rev. Phil and his Bike Porn festival is coming for its one time screening in Toronto this Saturday night and it is going to be a hell of a one night only party!  It is a collection of short erotic films made by inspired cyclists from across the US and Canada.  It 's creative, clever, funny, and aware! The only way to see Bike Porn is when it plays in a theater, bike shop or basement for a live audience. There are no DVDs for sale and no screeners for the media.

A few years ago in 2008 I had the chance to do some Shibari style bondage on bicycles for a local artist's installation party and it was an unusual request but an exciting chance to anthropomorphize bicycles into works of art.  Here are a few grainy pics of the previous installation and the blog entry. Well this year the Bike Porn Festival will be in town for one night only and they have asked me and my crew to create an even larger installation combining Shibari and Bicycles together into an even more sexualized and suspended sculpture.  I love creative challenges and can't wait to see the bikes we are tying up and figuring out how they are going to interact with one another.  This time I am leaning towards more of a "bike gangbang" and I know my crew and I are going to create something that no one has ever seen before!  The party is open to the public and not only are the movies going to be screened but there are some famous DJ's that will be spinning as well as Goldsprint racing. If you are a hardcore bicyclist or a saturday afternoon "Don Valley trailer" this is going to be a fun evening for you.   Oh and it is fully licenced so pints are 3 for $10!   Admission is only $10 for the whole evening. It is the social event to kick off the spring riding season in Toronto!

Here are the details:

Saturday March 26
 Doors open at 7pm
Screening at 8pm
