Samantha and I just don’t get along. I don’t know if it’s the classic “I hate my stepmother” cliché, or if there is some other reason, but we just don’t seem to like each other. I mean, she tries to be nice with me, and so do I, but it just doesn’t work. That’s why…

The Mysterious Rigger

I know it sounds odd, but what could I do? On the one hand, I am a professor: I studied for years, I’ve accumulated hundreds of teaching hours, and I have over a dozen publications under my belt. On the other hand, since I first learned about Shibari, when I was in college and my…
