Metalbond introduction to ‘The Exchange & Other Stories’ by Robert Payne

“If a man does not keep pace with his companions, perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer. Let him step to the music which he hears, however measured or far away.”

—Henry David Thoreau

The Exchange by Robert PayneThe stories you are about to read were written in an earlier time. In this prehistoric era there was plenty of BDSM-themed kink, but seeking it out was way more challenging than it is today. There was no such thing as a hookup app for your phone. Phones didn’t fit in your pocket back then. They were plugged in to the wall at home, and there were only two kinds: rotary dial and push button. Nobody had a blog or a social media presence.

People were concerned then with many of the same things as today, including the economy, pollution and crime. Because people tended to carry cash on them, there were more burglaries and muggings. No matter where you lived, everyone knew that Times Square was dangerous. Going downtown in any city was dangerous.

But if you were gay and happened to be excited by things like bondage and leather, venturing downtown at some point to try to find a magazine or two might be worth the risk. Growing up before the internet existed made exploring secret fetishes involving kink much more tricky. Before cable TV there were just three channels, and if you wanted to watch something different you had to get up and turn the knob. Every once in a while something listed in TV Guide would be the source of intense interest, such as a television special on Houdini. You might have grown up fascinated by the predicaments that the Caped Crusader and his sidekick found themselves trapped in at the end of almost every episode of Batman (the TV show, not the blockbuster movies of later decades). At the movies, “Cruising” with Al Pacino sure looked interesting — if it was playing in your local theater and you could scare up enough courage to go.

This was definitely before s/m had gone mainstream. And if you did not happen to live in a big city, with leather bars and clubs, your only other outlet was porn, which meant magazines.

‘The Exchange’ by Robert Payne now available as an e-Book

Robert Payne (aka John Embry, of blessed memory) was the founder of Drummer magazine, and he was also author of many male bondage stories. Now, one of his tales — “The Exchange” — is being published as an eBook. I was asked to write an introduction, which you can see in the “look inside” preview of the eBook, which is now available on Amazon:

I left a pair of engraved cuffs on Houdini’s grave

Houdini died on this day today (Halloween, Oct. 31) back in 1926, in Detroit, and this afternoon (Halloween day, 2018) I paid a visit to his gravesite in Queens, New York.

Houdini rests amongst his relatives in an elaborate family plot at Machpelah Cemetery in Glendale. From Manhattan, it was an hour-long trip on the subway and then a 20-minute hike.

As a tribute to Houdini, I left a pair of police-issue Smith and Wesson Model 100-1 handcuffs that I had specially engraved with his name. I made sure to double-lock the cuffs before leaving them.

Big Dog Stainless Steel Collar

Big Dog Stainless Steel Collar Hard muscled, big dicked subs need their collars too. The weight on this thick gauge stainless steel chain collar leaves no doubt in his mind — he is Yours. A click of the finely polished Master lock reinforces the message. You own him. All the other guys at the bar are going to know it too. They won’t miss the Big Dog collar around his neck. Be prepared to be asked permission before they even think about touching Your man.

I’ve got one just like this – and I wore it for a whole week out at Fire Island one summer, leaving the keys back at my apartment in NYC!
