Our daily lives are consumed with the omnipresent Internet, a relentless stampede of social media, and endless amounts of developing technologies so that it’s easy to forget the value of real life conversations, with real people and in real time. There truly is nothing like face-to-face communication and as a highly-evolved and tactile creature, I, Daddy Manners, require a certain amount of skin on skin action that cannot be obtained via a computer screen and the repeated click of backspace, enter and shift keys. In the matter of sex, I generally require a bigger bang for my buck – and I also enjoy a bigger bang while inside my buck – one that I can touch, taste, kiss, straddle, dock, rattle, and roll and THAT is why I will be traveling to MAL in just a few short weeks. Black Friday and Cyber Monday are all about making sure that I am registered for MAL and that I nail down my travel logistics and begin to do Google searches for all the exhibitors because MAL shopping rules!
I am constantly reminded of the availability and speed of wired technologies, such as Skype, email, instant messaging and conference calls, and that it’s easy to get swept up in the digital age instead of the dickgital age. Online technology provides me with opportunities to hide away in my living room, bedroom, (and sometimes office cubicle) and interact with friends and buddies strictly on a digital basis. Although this is efficient and may be the easiest route for many details, I still miss the moist and creamy benefits that come along with dickgital interactions that can only happen during face to face and skin-on-skin meetings.
On average, I may exchange upwards of 20 emails per day with a particular buddy and not connecting on a personal level through in-person and butt-to-butt shared experiences, can mean the difference between me shooting a mere tablespoon of watery pent up gene pool and half a gallon of cloudy and thick mitochondrial DNA reserve. MAL Weekend in a Modern World, a survey done by Centaur MC and funded by the Fjord Foundation, states that 87% of nasty pigs, bad boys, badder Daddies, pups, fellows with an attitude and ladies that are in the mood think face-to-face meetings are better for ensuring strong relationships and deeper, more intense pelvic thrusts.
Secondly, body language and physical reactions, including both verbal and non-verbal cues, are important aspects of decision-making and relationship building for many Mid-Atlantic Leather Weekend attendees. The Centaur study also found that the most important elements to build trust are eye contact, reading non-verbal cues and not surprisingly, stealth stalking your next snack through the labyrinth hallways of the Hyatt Regency. “We can tell a smile is genuine because it reaches the eyes. The muscles by our mouths and anal sphincter are under conscious control, but the muscles that crinkle the eyes and pull down the center of the eye brows are only activated when we smile and genuinely beg for God’s tender mercy,” reports MAL Weekend chair, Patrick Grady.
Spending time with both old and new friends will give you a deeper sense of who they are, how they operate, and often, just how deep they are. “Being able to put a name to a face and face to a pillow; or to a wall or even a floor, builds trust and gives insight into personality and character,” opines Centaur alumnus Dan Dutcher who returns to DC from Philadelphia this winter for Leather Weekend festivities.
Finally, Centaur President Chris Brush offered, “Our study really did much to confirm that no other type of emotional and physical release comes close to that experienced during face to face, skin on skin, tip to tip, dock to dock, labia to labia, nipple to nipple, tip to sphincter, sphincter to sphincter, mouth to mouth, nostril to nostril, tongue to tongue, foreskin to foreskin……” But then and suddenly, Mr. Brush seemed to lose whatever fragile concentration that led him this far in his conversation and promptly passed out.
